                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh dear.  More gore... I really shouldn't be around gore.  I can't stand it.
Gore makes me feel... strange.  Faint, like I'm going far away, and something is
roaring in my ears, and everything goes red....

                                  Faintly Frannie

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TRANSEL.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  PSYCHO SQUAD?  
Who?  SOUL STRIPPERS II is the top team these days, buddies!  Practice pays for 
FLASHER, who pummelled ELMINOTH, to pocket 23 points.  ELMINOTH certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to FLASHER and losing 19 points in the 
process!  What can be a greater victory?  JOE WILLIAMS has taken his place as the 
top, as TRANSEL's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in TRANSEL is using psychics 
to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are TRANSEL's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in TRANSEL avoid PSYCHO SQUAD.  
As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SOUL STRIPPERS II, so did that 
sorry team shy from PSYCHO SQUAD Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and ELVORA 
is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't REIGN proud!  FRIAR LUCK challenged 
XOLDRIN!  Who says SOUL STRIPPERS II are just a bunch of wimps!  FRIAR LUCK of SOUL 
STRIPPERS II kept his wits as he was defeated by XOLDRIN.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in TRANSEL would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in TRANSEL is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid TRANSEL 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
