                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You're a stingy wench, Wheel of Time.  About what I'd expect of an elf, or, to
be fair, anyone else with a chance to win.  I don't mind you winning--much--but you
could have taught me ONE skill at least!

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for SAM HOCK, who flew up 16 points in the 
rankings after mashing PERSISTENT BEGGAR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  DA VINCI CODE was 
defeated by KUNG-FU MASTER and drops 7 points.  In front of all the crowds, RUNNING 
DEER took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  An apple a 
day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

P.S.  It appears that Screaming Eagle gets a special cheer for tourney victor status.

Crime and Punishment -- Since you are demolished, does that mean we have achieved
eutopia? -- Cusster

Nobody warned me about the Dangerous Criminal!  I don't like him. -- Dawe Gonnit

That Potter Saga -- "Viciously subdued," indeed.  I've noticed you have that effect
on many. -- Warburton

As Orcs go, this Captured one is not bad, but he eats too much.  I can't keep him.
Better to send him home. -- Blind Betsy

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
