                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Greeting to all you traitors of Trocar.  Madam Venusia here glaring into my
crystal ball.  The future is cloudy and things seem to be upside down.  Gives me
visions of former Cubs pitchers named Steve in my not too distant future.

Madam Venusia
SPARF!
Duelmaster of Trocar

                                      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 TRADERS OF TROCAR was 
unseated this week as SPARF! moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-1-0 record for the round.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record which SPARF! 
managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  
ALBERT caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 
ALLERDAE CHAN and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, ALBERT put down ALLERDAE CHAN, causing her to lose 13 points of 
recognition in the process.  Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster 
MADAM VENUSIA challenged TROUT last week in a match to decide the fate of the throne. 
Although TROUT made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious MADAM VENUSIA.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team 
has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  TROCAR, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is KIWI CONNECTION II, a guild shunned and 
avoided by many in the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of SPARF! are catching 
the bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after KORASIM.  Watch your back!   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TROCAR.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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

Madam Venusia -- Well done, and over to you.  Such a relief! -- Allerdae Chan

Trout -- I always knew I didn't like fish, you just give me more reason. -- Korasim

Batman -- I bet there are days you had the wings of a bat and could just... fly away
from it all.  Although if it means only going out at night, and eating bugs, I guess
I'll pass. -- Galliot Jomon

Philosopher -- Oh, cool!  Say something philosophical! -- Worzeel

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
