                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRICORUS games.  GAIL RUSSELL caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested KLARALLA and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DALE BOZZIO put down 
ONE EYE DARK, causing him to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has RUNAWAY JIM in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if 
exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 
7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  KLARALLA take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in TRICORUS.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of TERRI NUNN who 
this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 12 points below in the rankings.  I 
thought TERRI NUNN showed great skill and promise when she subdued MORNING DEW.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in TRICORUS as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hmm, three dead in duels?  Not enough to cause the city to perish, unfortunately, but
singularly appropriate for Tricorus.  One per horn, eh?

Chuck's Pinups -- So, if I write an ad to a member of your team, will I get a
personal visit from my chosen Pinup? -- Hargerd
P.S.  Okay, so I live in a tent, we Rirorni do that.  A good tent is a fine place,
although a little less fine in the winter.  And with winter coming on, well, I could
value a soft, insulated woman to help me stay warm?

Two-three, probably because we drew a standby to defeat.  And Jorja says, yep, we do
personal Personals today. -- Morning Dew

Dale Bozzio -- Huh, bottle blonde, and you've got dark roots showing.  Stop beating
up people who comment on that and get a good professional job done. -- Klaralla

Terri Nunn -- In fact, you are devastating.  WHERE did you get those opals? --
Morning Dew
P.S.  They're a favorite stone of mine.

The Captain -- Well, of course.  You're a captain, I'm a mere soldier (all Rirorni
are soldiers, more or less), naturally you defeated me. -- One Eye Dark

Leopard -- What a time to discover I'm allergic to cats! -- Garsteil the Indignant
P.S.  I wouldn't want you to think it's a girly FEAR of cats, mind you.  But you make
me sneeze.

Beggars, bah.  I have no patience with them.  Let them go get jobs! -- Triskadel the
Unsympathetic
