                             Notes from the arena champ.

Dal Shang, how quiet you have become...

     My apologies to Anarchist on the death of his fine warrior.  It was not my
intent to end his existance, but alas, so goes the gladiator life.
     This should be my last turn in this beautiful city.  Who gets the next dance?

                                          Gunslinger

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome DAL SHANG.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with HEROD?  He 
actually beat SAND DANCERS' KARANZA THE WILD, and walked away with 18 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at POSSE while they watched HEROD clobber KARANZA 
THE WILD.  She lost 14 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
MALDI STONEBREAKER was reminded on the sands why GUNSLINGER is Duelmaster.  I suppose 
you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, LAUGH TRACK LORDS!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at LAUGH TRACK 
LORDS ain't reelin'!  LAUGH TRACK LORDS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being 
the most challenged warrior, NORBEN THE LESSER!  Don't make idle boasts, they may 
come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
DAL SHANG is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

We salute Vesemer, tourney victor this summer, and, what the heck, we salute the rest
of the tourney participants, too. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

Two-three-one, and we'd really like to know what Polwhis the Candle did to be
"viciously butchered." -- An Yee

He started the fire in that warehouse down on the waterfront.  Massive losses of
trade goods, and some deaths, too.  Bad. -- Ko the Average
