                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, this Wegerin Greatblade is an interesting man!  Short, of course, being a
dwarf, but we have nothing against short men.  They try harder.  And he's got the
stamina to deal with both of us.  That's rare.

                                    Eve and Emma

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TRANSEL to see 
what's new.  MVP award for CHAS CRINGER?  PSYCHO SQUAD's proud of him after beating 
AUSTIN NORDELL and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  ORSON WELLS 
got smashed by NOT-A-NUT JONES, and lost 7 points!  This Duelmaster is like something 
else!  EVE AND EMMA stopped WEGERIN GREATBLADE dead in his tracks!  I hear the top 
team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters 
for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

John Huston -- That was totally unnecessary, and I will see you cursed for it.  I
have contacts, you know.  Friends in dark places. -- Ghost of Normal Nan

Orson Wells -- I know how to dig in to a well. -- Not-A-Nut Jones

Austin Nordell -- The announcer lied.  I *was* laughing at you.  I just laughed like
anything.  You were funny, lying there on the sands moving your little hands and
feet.  Hilarious. -- Happy Harriet

Cottonmouth -- Don't hit me again!  I didn't mean to do it, whatever "it" was that
got you stirred up.  Honest, I'm friendly.  Some of my best friends are snake golems!
Really! -- Chas Cringer

We salute Transel's tourney participants, with special congratulations for Mr.
Gherkin, Champion of Champions. -- Jorja and the Psycho Squad
