                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRICORUS games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week CM - THE REVENGE went 2-1-0 to move 
up 3 in the rankings.  MOLOTOV caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as she skillfully bested TIGRESS and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, MOLOTOV put down TIGRESS, causing her to lose 10 
points of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior 
on the challenge boards this week was none other than Duelmaster PUMA itself.  The 
city has turned out in honor of HELPER, for with its arena victory it may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  Informants "close" to the city champion 
have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out! 
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TRICORUS.  TRICORUS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is DARK HORSEMEN, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding DARK HORSEMEN.  Indeed it was AMAZON ELITE.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Walk proud, warriors of CM - THE 
REVENGE!  By striking down WOLFRAIN you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your 
virtue is known to all in TRICORUS.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in TRICORUS as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Four-one-one?  How did THIS happen? -- the Dark Horsemen

Ghost of Montezuma -- It wasn't revenge.  At least, not on you.  Maybe... it might
have been, ah, testiness brought on by the Commission's RIDICULOUS misreading of my
race.  And not only ridiculous, it was, it REMAINS, INSULTING to me!  And to my
mother.  To imply that she had... carnal relations with an ELF is--WELL!  It's bad.
I would be justified in seeking revenge on the Commission fool who dared suggest it,
but... you were just in the way.  Really sorry about that.  Well, fairly sorry about
it.  I don't mind killing, but I don't like to kill by ACCIDENT. -- Wolfrain
