                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Xyco, I'm sorry to come back out of nowhere after six months and rain on
your parade, but that's life.  Probably the wrong pretzels; you had the ones tied in
knots, right?  They're no good, you need straight pretzels (the ones like salted
toothpicks).  Remember this next time.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TROCAR games.  Former top team JANIX was unseated this 
week as TRADERS OF TROCAR moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 4-1-0 
record for the round.  PENELOTHE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested SHAGORNAN WILD MAN and was awarded 14 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SKORINDELLE put down RUNE 
KNIGHT, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
WASTELANDER made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious VIRET.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained 
their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TROCAR "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in TROCAR 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:  a fool flies into 
a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani 
Sharp Eyes

The Collector!  Ha!  I'll collect HIM.  Or at least, his scalp.  It should be
luxuriant, since there's no fire of intellect underneath to sere the growth.  Why do
I say this?  Because he just NOW figured out that he doesn't like hospitals!  Any man
of intelligence would have known this years ago. -- Wimperetta
P.S.  And his blood is anemic, besides.  Worthless stuff.

Wastelander -- (groan)  That's a part of gladiating I did NOT miss during our
retirement.  But thanks for the skills. -- Penelothe

A "Slave-Warrior"?  Where did this idiot come from?  And who was dumb enough to
suggest that slaves be trained as warriors, anyway?  I thought we had a reasonably
intelligent king around here. -- Skorindelle the annoyed

That Ambitious Guard NEVER learns.  Unless there's actually a whole string of
Ambitious Guards who are all the same size and shape so they can wear the same armor
(full helm, so we can't see his face), same inept performance....  (shakes head in
amazement)  Could it be that we're discourage a whole string of overly ambitious,
underly skillful guards?  And who, might I ask, do they guard?  Who would TRUST these
dorks to guard them?  It's a mystery. -- Daristam

Kat -- Well, you see we've returned to do what we can for the fight-count. -- Nick,
Traders of Trocar
P.S.  And what happened here, anyway?  When we left, this place was, well, maybe not
THRIVING, but doing okay.  And now...it's an echo-chamber.
