                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

"Grimwood still won't let us enter Mylar's Tavern until we've won five, now four more 
fights and repaid Mylar for the damage," the Mytori Priest said.

"I know, I know. That's why we aren't going there. Follow me," Harbinger replied.

The two Rirorni made their way through the merchants selling goods. Mouthwatering 
aromas wafted from a nearby building. They headed toward the area where the tavern was 
located. 

A painted sign reading The Wanton Troll was hanging in front of a fairly nondescript 
building. The sign decorated with an illustration of a burnt orange female troll's 
head swung slightly in the evening breeze. They watched two Rocani men heading toward 
the entrance. 

A large, orange-skinned female troll rushed out to greet them. The creature was at 
least six and a half feet tall with long black coarse hair and a bosom that any man 
would yearn for, except that it was on a particularly hideous troll. The troll grabbed 
the nearest man in a bear hug, pinning his head between her breasts.

"Beulah, let him go before you smother him," stammered the other Rocani.

"What's the passwoid?" Beulah asked in a gruff accent, while continuing to embrace the 
first man, swinging his almost limp body back and forth like a doll hugged by a child.

"Uh, I want to pat your uh, fanny," stammered the second Rocani. "Yeah, that's it."

Beulah released her grip. The trapped Rocani wobbled, gasping for breath, when Beulah 
placed him back on his feet. Beulah turned around and bent over, sticking out her 
derriere as far as she could. Each Rocani patted Beulah's behind, then entered the 
bar. A snippet of laughter, music, and the aroma of food escaped as the door opened, 
then closed.

After witnessing the unusual spectacle, the Mytori Priest and Harbinger turned to each 
other with a shrug.

"What do you think?" asked Harbinger.

The Mytori Priest folded his arms, studying the scene. "Sure, let's go in. We know the 
password, the food smells good and, besides, I could use a drink after my exhausting 
bout with DA1."

When the two walked up two wooden stairs to the front porch of the Wanton Troll, 
Beulah rushed Harbinger.

Ready for the encounter, Harbinger began, "I want to--" She dodged the grasp of the 
charging troll.

"Darling, come to Beulah." 

The Mytori Priest distracted the attention of the overzealous troll, who scooped up 
the gladiator without difficulty. 

The harder the Mytori Priest flailed, the tighter Beulah's grasp became, so he opened 
his mouth and bit hard into the side of the troll's breast. 

Harbinger charged at the troll's back. She punched, but due to the troll's height, she 
struck her square in the rump. The force barely caused her flab to ripple, but it did 
succeed in grabbing Beulah's attention.

Turning back toward Harbinger, Beulah said, "My cute little darling. What's the 
passwoid?" 

Harbinger replied confidently, "I want to pat your hiney." 

A confused expression spread over the troll's face. "Not the passwoid," she said. 

"Yes it is."

"Noooo, not the passwoid." Beulah shook her head, her woolly hair whipping across her 
face as the Mytori Priest continued to flail helplessly.

Damn, thought Harbinger, what had they said? She knew the first part was right. Maybe 
"hiney" was wrong. Tooter? Bum? Rump? Fanny? Yes. 

"I want to pat your fanny," said Harbinger bellowing desperately. "I want to pat your 
fanny." 

Beulah abruptly released the Mytori Priest from her grip. Harbinger rushed to steady 
her friend. 

"Are you okay?" Harbinger asked.

The Mytori Priest's eyes rolled for a moment. He lurched away from her grasp, perhaps 
thinking Beulah still had him trapped, and crashed into the tavern's wall.

"Hey, hey, hey." Harbinger scrambled after the dazed Rirorni.

The Mytori Priest took a couple gasping breaths. "I just need a minute for the 
dizziness to wear off." He continued to draw deep breaths. 

Harbinger gave him a couple of reassuring pats. Finally, the Mytori Priest braced his 
hand on one knee and rose to his feet, accepting help from Harbinger.

The two gladiators turned to Beulah, who had already assumed the position, waiting 
patiently for them to pat her rump. Harbinger gave Beulah a quick pat, eyeing her 
cautiously. The Mytori Priest slapped the troll's rear end with all the force he could 
muster. 

Beulah let out an almost girlish giggle at what she apparently perceived as a love 
pat, and her face blushed a deeper orange color. She gave the Mytori Priest a huge, 
toothy grin, flipping her hair playfully with her hand. Then she noticed the bright 
red bite mark on her breast.

"Hey, Beulah not that kind of woman. It take week for hickey to go away," the troll 
said hotly.

"Hickey? Hickey! Woman, let me tell you something that is the last thing I was trying 
to do," the Mytori Priest retorted. 

Beulah hauled back and slapped him. Due to the size of her hand, the blow connected 
hard with most of his face and the Mytori Priest tumbled backwards again, striking the 
wall for the second time.

Harbinger rushed to stand between his downed friend and the fuming Beulah. 

"I'm sure he didn't mean anything by it. He was just overcome by your beauty." 

"You think so?" Beulah contemplatively stroked her stubbly chin hairs.

"Why else? You've been around enough men to know how they act toward a well-endowed 
woman such as yourself." Harbinger winked at Beulah, trying to alleviate any doubt.

Beulah turned a brighter orange, fluttered her eyelashes, and waved a bashful hand at 
the Mytori Priest.

The Mytori Priest gave Beulah a painful grin of acknowledgement as he again rose to 
his feet. When Beulah stepped toward him, he clenched a fist, in case the troll tried 
anything unpleasant.

Beulah told him, "You not quite Beulah's type, but you strong enough. You want good 
time, come after closing and Beulah show you good time troll style."

Likely not wanting to chance angering Beulah any further, the Mytori Priest replied, 
"I'm going to be busy with, uh, stuff for a while, but I'll keep your offer in mind."

Beulah seemed to accept the answer, telling them as they entered the tavern, "Welcome 
to the Wanton Troll!" 		 	   		  

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ROCANIS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for GRIZZLED VETERANS!, whose 0-0-0 this turn 
dropped them by 5 into 9th.  Ha!  DRACO turned their 1-0-0 turn into a 4th place rank 
in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see BLACK STEEL win a fight and gain 25 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLACK STEEL beat AHSOKA TANO and AHSOKA TANO lost 17 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ROCANIS may 
be getting bland, as HONDO OHNAKA stays top dog in the city.  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, 
ROCANIS?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  MEN OF STEEL was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was SKULL SQUADRON.  
Ha ha ha ha!  AHSOKA TANO was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  
Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ROCANIS' 
morgue.  More variety.  MEN OF STEEL has cause to pause today, as MACROS THE BLACK 
was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, I'll 
wager.  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 ROCANIS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens
