                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Kung-Fu, who needs it?  We like to go out with blades in every hand.  Both of
us, so the steward can't complain because we've got four blades out.  Why take
chances?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRANSEL games.  MR. GHERKIN caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BUMBLE-FINGERS and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  Although MASTER RHOLENN made a valiant effort, it did not 
suffice to topple the reign of victorious DEADLY DUO.  Heed this!  A seer has warned 
that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just 
remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TRANSEL "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?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TRANSEL.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no 
one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

That Xenoria is SOOO dumb, she actually bleaches her hair!  Induced stupidity, that
is, because everyone knows what it means for a woman to be blonde.  Why, if I'd been
born blonde, I would dyed my hair black right away.  No reason to handicap yourself,
after all. -- Bimbette

I suspect that Nurnin the Unlucky practices some kind of sneaky magic, probably based
on his name.  The damned fool projects bad luck onto his opponents! -- Hattie
P.S.  And he doesn't teach well, either.

     Teaching isn't in his job description.

Agnar -- They told me you'd do that.  At least, I think they did.  I may have slept
through it.  I wasn't really paying attention anyway.  You know how it goes:  A blow
to the head at breakfast, and you won't care about anything all day. -- Concussion

Huh, you'd think this "Sir Lyrin Preskane" was an elf or something, the way he minces
around.  But I don't put up with stuff like that, and so I told him.  Pointedly.
He'll remember. -- Normal Nan

We Salute those who participated in the tourney, with special congratulations for
Second Omen, Contenders Champion, and Blood Titan, Primus Victor. -- the Psycho Squad
