                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ha!  I got Vinegar this time.  I brought baking soda!  A fizz, a whoosh, and no
more trouble with the vinegar.  So now that I've got that figured out, of COURSE the
Commission wants me out of town.  Ah, well.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZORPUNT!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with HARRY DRESDEN?  He 
actually beat WRESTLING's RINGWORM, and walked away with 12 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at KRILL CAVALRY.  DELBERT MOONE lost 8 points to DANGEROUS 
CRIMINAL.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe DELBERT MOONE will provide more easy 
wins...  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for WRESTLING's outstanding member, 
Duelmaster VINEGAR.  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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Ringworm -- I can't stand the thought of you.  People with ringworm get their heads
shaved!  That would do terrible things to me as a gladiator. -- Donny Poole
P.S.  Is your middle name Delilah?

WWC -- It was curiosity as much as anything.  I mean, I've heard of WC, but I
wondered what the extra W meant.  Now I know. -- Tarana Stone

A Userous Merchant, no problem.  They're thick on the ground at this season, aren't
they? -- Delbert Moone

The not-really-Osksian Noble was a tasty morsel. -- Jobert Donner

DARRON POOLE (24-4914) KRILL CAVALRY (403)

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

     The crowd was surprisingly orderly, but it was still a crowd, and the Commission 
clerk, Algernon, looked at it uneasily.  Whenever this many people came together to 
petition for something, it meant trouble.  For him, anyway.  Records to be altered.  
Altering records was Bad.  It made Extra Work.
     His assistant clerk leaned close and whispered, "If it weren't for gladiators, we 
wouldn't have jobs.  Smile at them and ask what they want."
     Algernon closed his eyes briefly.  Looking at this crowd made him dizzy.  They 
were all wearing black and white stripes.  Like a herd of zebras, except that zebras 
didn't carry swords.  Then he took a deep breath and managed a smile.  "What... ah, 
what can I do for you?"
     "We want new names," the first gladiator said.  There was a number on the front 
of his shirt:  0381.  He thumped the number with his thumb.  "This here isn't a 
name--"
     "We want REAL names!"  That voice came from farther back in the crowd.
     "Yeah!  We've paid our dues," another shouted, "and we've EARNED real names!"
     One from the very back yelled, "I want to be called Tom."
     All the others turned to look at him.
     Algernon couldn't see him, but apparently those looks were accusing.  Well, he 
could understand that, "Tom" was such a... common name.
     "My mom called me Tom," the voice in the back protested.  "It's a good name."
     "It isn't the name you put on the petition," 0381 said.  "We talked about this.  
We got our manager's agreement.  You get the name on the petition."
     "But--!"
     Algernon didn't really want to keep staring at all these stripes while they 
argued.  He picked up the petition.  "These names are the ones you want?"
     0381 turned back.  "Yes."
     "It's a lot of trouble, and when other people see that YOU are getting name 
changes, THEY are going to want them--"  Seeing the gladiators beginning to frown... 
and finger their weapons, he went on quickly, "So I figure we might as well make it a 
complete deal.  A Name-Change-O-Rama.  Everyone who wants a name change can petition 
for it.  Get it all over with at once."  He glanced at the petition, shuddered 
slightly, and passed it to his clerk.  "We'll announce it, proclaim it, even, and you 
will get the names on this petition.  And others will get the names THEY think they 
should have had, too."  He paused.  "And I think I'll get a new name, I'm tired of 
being an Algernon...."
