                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Thank you, Centaurian.  That fight was about as hard as a bowl full of jello.
Still, thank you, sir, for the learns.  As for the rest of yous lets see if you got
what it takes.  I'm packing and im not going to make it easy.  Striker need not 
apply.

Bell, your DM

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRICORUS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  CM - THE REVENGE turned their 3-0-0 turn 
into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see UNHOLY FROG win a 
fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, FROG BELLY LINT beat SHADOW ROSE and 
SHADOW ROSE lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability 
to defend the throne, ATOMIC PUNK has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting 
that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as MOONDARK takes 
the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Blue 
Dolphin Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From TRICORUS' trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  VAN DUEL, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were 
this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who 
led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was CM 
- THE REVENGE.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the TRICORUS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of TRICORUS.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Oenomaus -- Thought I'd get a cheap shot in there.  My manager is confused, clearly.
Nice fight maybe I'll try again another day. -- Inspire

Hey Joe -- Almost and not bad at all.  I don't usually come home with a scratch.  I
gotta hide these bruises now they are pretty ugly! -- Everstar

Atomic Punk -- Indeed, it worked out quite well for you and me.  Hang in there, and
it may continue to do so.  I hope so, anyway. -- Skalvord
P.S.  More competition would be good....

One-three?  Sh-- shoot!

Atomic Punk -- Well done.  Not the way I'd have liked to see it come out, but what
the heck. -- Hargerd
P.S.  I'd invite you to join me in getting smashed on fermented mare's milk, but,
honestly, if you didn't grow up drinking it, don't try to start now.  It's definitely
an acquired taste.

Ice Cream Man -- Delicious.  Thank you.  Even in this weather. -- Moondark

Past Tense -- My present is rather tense, too. -- Shadow Rose

Beer Belly -- And I don't even DRINK beer! -- Klaralla
