                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A worthy effort, Quizboy, but it seems to have been my day.  Which surprised me.
Graduation?  Probably the political points.

                                     Windsong

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TRICORUS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see PUMA win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, PUMA beat 
SLENDER WEASEL and SLENDER WEASEL lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as QUIZBOY takes the Title and last week's bar tab 
from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I 
telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, TRICORUS?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in TRICORUS to get a drink than The Blue 
Dolphin Inn!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure 
you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Tiger -- Well!  That's a coup, tigers are power animals.  But I'd be more impressed
with myself if the fight had been closer to even. -- Moondark
P.S.  But perhaps you have tourney fights?  That would even it up.

Lynx -- Must be our day to grapple with cats.  Which, if you've ever tried to give a
pill to a cat, you wouldn't want to do.  But okay so far! -- Skalvord
P.S.  I suppose you came for the skills?

Dr. Orpheus -- You continue to soothe the savage within your opponents.  Neat trick.
-- Salmgedan

Ah!  A good beginning. -- Slender Weasel
