                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You know how, when you go fishing, you catch old boots and tin cans and all
kinds of junky stuff?  Tackle Box is making sure we have that experience here.  I
guess I should be glad, because it means everything can be done properly, but eh.
Never satisfied, that's me.  Some people say that's what makes me a Psycho.  A lot
they know!  I'm prefectly normal, it's everyone else who's nuts.
     And speaking of "everyone else who is nuts," there's Wegerin Greatblade.  Damned
dwarf!  They're all crazy, by definition.  Otherwise, they wouldn't live in caves.
Well, I cringed his beard good!

                                    Chas Cringer

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TRANSEL!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with PATTON?  He actually 
beat TRANSEL's PERSISTENT BEGGAR, and walked away with 15 more points from the fight. 
Major screwup at BLACK AND BLUES.  SONNY BOY II lost 8 points to SUNRISE.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SONNY BOY II will provide more easy wins...  Try as he 
might, PEREGRINE FIREHAWK wasn't good enough at persuading CHAS CRINGER to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
PSYCHO SQUAD.  In my day, no team with a 248-229-8 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, REIGN?  What do people see in XOLDRIN?  His 7-1-1?  REIGN ain't talkin', but 
he's got 47 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
TRANSEL is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
