                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A few more real gladiators today, that's good, even if they wasted their time on
beggars and deserters.  Gotta start small, after all.
     And just in case you wondered, yep, Rholenn is one of those idiots who come out
with no weapons and just leather armor.  I love 'em.

                                   Sweet Freddy

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to TRANSEL once again!  What's with PBR?  He actually beat 
TRANSEL's MORDANT DESERTER, and walked away with 14 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at INK & STEEL FOREVER.  INK AND STEEL lost 8 points to LIZZIE 
BROADAXE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe INK AND STEEL will provide more easy 
wins...  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to XENORIA, BUT SWEET FREDDY is still 
the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  Advice to fighters with a 
1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of TRANSEL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and some of the Psycho Squad (the rest
are sulking)

Romiad... in Flinders?  That's... it's a little like splinters, isn't it?  I
didn't... I don't think I meant to hit him that hard.... -- Dazey May

*I* meant to hit him that hard, and I'd've hit him harder if the stupid arenamaster
hadn't stepped in.  What a softy! -- Lizze Broadaxe

Cult Member, what a joke!  What cult would have a wimp like that? -- Surly Shirley

Wraith -- Ugh, a golem.  I can't stand golems.  They're an offense against nature. --
