     Not-a-Nut Jones banged on a kettle with his sword.  The noise cut through all
the background racket in the room--more than you'd expect with a mere half-dozen
people present.  "Okay!  Let's come to order here!"
     Chas Cringer looked up from the curtain he was cringing, keeping a firm grip on
the dangling threads so as not to lose his place.  "Why?  Order's over-rated."
     Happy Harriet smacked him with a beer stein.  "Because if you don't, I'll beat
you up.  Let me tell you, that would make me very happy."
     The Cringer squinted, possible retorts marching visibly across his face.
     Faintly Frannie trembled and blinked several times.  "Don't fight," she
whispered.  "I couldn't stand it if we fought among ourselves...."
     "Might as well," Chas countered.  "It isn't like this arena is giving us a lot
of variety."  He tied off the last knot in his cringe and studied it.  The curtain
was now twisted and crumpled.  He nodded satisfaction.  "This'll do."
     Amy Nesia leaned close to it.  "That looks... positively tormented," she said.
     "Good.  It's supposed to."
     "Are we going to hold this meeting, or not?" Not-a-Nut demanded.
     "Not," Harriet said.  "I changed my mind.  A meeting would make me very
unhappy."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A little more agression worked through, another opponent taught to leave me
alone, and life is good, or at least getting better.  I can work with this.

                                   Happy Harriet

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TRANSEL, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for FAINTLY FRANNIE, who pummelled 
AUSTIN NORDELL, to pocket 17 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
FAINTLY FRANNIE was winsome, after beating AUSTIN NORDELL and seeing him lose 14 
points.  HAPPY HARRIET successfully staved off a grab for the roses by JOHN HUSTON of 
THE DIRECTORS.  Does TRANSEL have no one talented enough to dethrone her?  So who was 
the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's 
got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in TRANSEL is the highlight of my life.  As the 
seasons change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to 
leave this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid TRANSEL 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --

I'm not sure, but... maybe Nurnin the Unlucky, that WAS his name, wasn't it?  Maybe
he's going to be upset with me.  I wouldn't want that, but at least I won't have to
remember it for long. -- Amy Nesia

Orson Wells -- I hope the Martians get you.  I'm looking forward to that. -- Not-a-
Nut Jones

David Fincher -- Why not change your name to "Flincher."  It'd fit. -- Chas Cringer

Austin Nordell -- Oh... I don't think I can do this.  I feel so unsteady.... --
Faintly Frannie

We salute the tourney participants, especially Odd, with his Rookies TV.  Does this
mean Balto will be back? -- Jorja and the Psycho Squad
