                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't know this Sir Renard, why did I fight him?  There was so much blood, it
makes me feel all dizzy just to see it.  I don't think I like this.  Chas shouldn't
have left.

                                  Faintly Frannie

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  TRANSEL needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for SWEET 
FREDDY?  PSYCHO SQUAD's proud of him after beating SKIP JAMES and getting 26 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  SKIP JAMES got smashed by SWEET FREDDY, and lost 22 
points!  Was that a tear I saw in ELMINOTH's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  
And wasn't FAINTLY FRANNIE fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said TRANSEL's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Sultan's Tent?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  PSYCHO SQUAD was TRANSEL's most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why BLACK AND BLUES' been 
avoiding PSYCHO SQUAD so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  TRANSEL is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

entertained through the months of August and September.

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
