                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Jones may have fond memories of "Old Swivel-Hips," but Jones is an ass, and
probably a cracked ass.  That old swiveler made me very unhappy, and I hate that.  So
I just took care of it--worked out the antagonism, as they say.  All the best shrinks
advise working out the antagonism if one is to be happy.  And I am.

                                   Happy Harriet

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TRANSEL!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  AUSTIN NORDELL caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested FAINTLY FRANNIE and was 
awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, AUSTIN 
NORDELL put down FAINTLY FRANNIE, causing her to lose 11 points of recognition in the 
process.  Not for nothing has HAPPY HARRIET in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  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!   
     The girls are as pretty in TRANSEL as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into 
a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani 
Sharp Eyes

Stump Jumper -- That always seemed to me like a dumb thing to do.  It's a lot easier
to walk around the stump. -- Not-a-Nut Jones, despite what Harriet might say

Austin Nordell -- Oh... was there a fight?  Is it over?  Did I win?  I can never
remember the details. -- Amy Nesia

Thetas Toman -- I didn't mean to break your arm.  Both your arms.  Oh... I feel awful
about it.... -- Faintly Frannie, looking pale

I join with the perspicacious fans in saying, "David Fincher, you stupid idiot!" --
