                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TROCAR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, SLO-MO MAILMAN fought CULT MEMBER and gained 13 points and 
contributed to USELESS TOOLS' 3-2-0.  DISSOLVABLE DIAPER has lost to DALAN HILLEI, 
falling 6 points, while helping make USELESS TOOLS a 3-2-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and WORZEEL remains TROCAR's top warrior for 
another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at The Swinging Aardvark?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  In a brave attempt, ASMODEUS ASORII from 
STEEL WOLVES 5 challenged up 24 points to fight MENG SI from the ASIAN INVASION 
stable.  ASMODEUS ASORII perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he beat MENG SI and 
ended up with 56 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, TROCAR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TROCAR and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Ambitious guards?  Thanks for the civil work, but the arena isn't like criminal
justice.  I can hit you back on the sands without fear of prosecution, you know. --
Fernia the Red

Chun Ming -- A devastating loss.  For me.  I am not worthy! -- Asmodeus Asorii
P.S.  I'm a "local."  But I have no specific race?

     If one is not shown in the fight headers, it means your race is the same as Chun
     Ming's.  Only when it differs is it listed there.

Hazzan Kazzar -- Not your fault.  I switched to decaf about a week prior to the fight
and was frustrated. -- Jax Nazareth

Oh, man, Trollbait, dude, this really isn't working out for you.  But thanks for
letting everyone else look good. -- Igraine Le Fay
P.S.  It's "Le Fay," not "Le Fax," but whatever.

Hello, Jorja.  I didn't know you ran Traders of Trocar.  It's quiet here in Trocar,
no?  I like these small arenas, though.  Congratulations to the new Duelmaster,
Worzeel. -- Lobo, mgr. SW5
P.S.  Duelmaster's Column, maybe?  Some reading material.

Worzeel:  11-16-11-11-15-5-15 ST  good endurance, can take a lot of damage, does good
damage.  Ex init, rip, dec.  MS, low/high, response tactic.

Fernia the Red -- Avoiding can be a good thing.  Except after the fights.  Then we
could go around together, shop, eat, even train together, hmm? -- Dalan Hillei

Jax Nazareth -- Okay, THAT was embarrassing. -- Hazzan Kazzar

And three-one against the Asian Invasion!  That doesn't happen often. -- the rest of
the Traders
