                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Damned gadget!  I never did like gadgets.  You want to catch a fish, you get a
net.  On some other world, I'd say, "get dynamite," but that won't work here.  Damned
Magicians' Union!  And Stump Jumper left the place a mess, all wet and muddy, with
bits of algae and water weeds.  Bleh.  I'll have to dry the place out before I can
cringe it properly.

                                    Chas Cringer

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  BLACK AND BLUES is no joke as it posted a 3-0-0 week advancing from 
4th place to 3rd place.  Hey everybody, watch out for SWEET FREDDY, who flew up 20 
points in the rankings after mashing ELVORA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy. 
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ELVORA was bested by 
SWEET FREDDY and drops 15 points.  Our battling duelmaster CHAS CRINGER has managed 
to hold the title, fending off WEGERIN GREATBLADE's none too subtle advances.  Better 
luck next time, TRANSEL.  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.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid PSYCHO SQUAD, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does TRANSEL really have that many 
liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch REIGN's act in the arena.  Those 
acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from PSYCHO SQUAD.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in TRANSEL have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Swivel -- Well... well, I hope you didn't hurt your weapon, hitting me like that.  I
mean, I didn't want to hurt you, and I maybe ducked wrong when you struck back, to
keep from, well, breaking your pivot or something.  You know.  But... all this
blood... I think I'd better go lie down.... -- Faintly Frannie

J.K. Polk -- I should have guessed.  I should have KNOWN.  Anyone so gung-ho as to go
volunteering would just HAVE to be Bad News. -- Angry Allen Angst

Sleepy John Estes -- Good thing you didn't wake up fast.  It would have been
