                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well... well, I'm sort of sorry about that, Brox, but... there was just this red
mist suddenly... and when it went away, there was a lot of blood--I'll faint in a
minute--and I'd won.  You... you didn't need that arm, did you?  After all, you have
two.  And now, excuse me, I think I'm going to faint... all that blood, and pieces of
bone sticking out, and... oooooooh....

                                  Faintly Frannie

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TRANSEL!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  REIGN were a bunch of dogs 
after PSYCHO SQUAD got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's with 
UNCLE SPANKY?  He actually beat REIGN's XOLDRIN, and walked away with 16 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at TACKLE BOX while they watched FLASHER clobber 
SWEET FREDDY.  He lost 15 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands. 
Try as he might, ELMINOTH wasn't good enough at persuading FAINTLY FRANNIE to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, SOUL 
STRIPPERS II!  The bums at TACKLE BOX couldn't face the challenges from SOUL 
STRIPPERS II!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, XOLDRIN!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  We all knew it had to happen sooner or later.  A 
warrior can't stick around with a 6-9-0, and YASNAC easily took care of ALLEN ANGST.  
The ultimate victory is one that results in death.  YASNAC of knows this.  Will 
PSYCHO SQUAD attempt a Bloodfeud?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  TRANSEL 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
