                                      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.  Later days, VAN DUEL, since DARK 
HORSEMEN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see ROWBOAT CAPTAIN win a fight and gain 22 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ROWBOAT CAPTAIN beat MOLOTOV and MOLOTOV lost 15 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  PUMA challenged TRICORUS' Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as PUMA 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?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  DARK HORSEMEN, 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 
it looks like WILDCATS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TRICORUS' 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Twelve in the Dark Arena!  That's, um, impressive or something.  The search for the
Godling Gladiator is obvious a difficult one.

Our congratulations to Puma. -- Jorja and the Dark Horsemen

Atomic Punk -- Not my favorite match, but not unexpected.  You're always challenging,
and, to be honest, winning. -- Moondark
P.S.  I don't know why I taught you four skills.  You didn't need them.

Ice Cream Man -- Fattening, but worth it. -- Hargerd
P.S.  You're giving Jorja ideas.  She said she was thinking, "Maybe a bowl of
cereal," but the idea of a root beer float is more appealing.

Molotov -- People DRINK that? -- Shadow Rose

The Captain -- I prefer to avoid officers, actually.  They always want me to DO
things. -- Klaralla

Rowboat Captain -- I hadn't realized an oar was such an effective weapon. -- Morning
Dew
