                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     I've been meaning to enlighten everyone as to the origins of the team here,
Greats of Troy.  There have been references to a mythological place by one of the
managers in the arena and I wanted to put the rumors to rest.  Our Troy is an
academic town on the coast which caters mostly to the arts and athletics.  When I
arrived to work out the men and women in hopes of finding a team of gladiators both
athletes and artistic types showed up.  Now I'm not opposed to the right type of
artist fighting in the arena, intelligence and deftness are good qualities, but the
group that showed the most promise comprised 4 athletes and to my surprise one of the
athletic coaches.  Athletes are an egotistical bunch and like to use their real names
in the arena to make sure every ounce of fame and glory is known both in and out of
the arena.  Ive found the artistic types are just the opposite, preferring to use
names such as those from the mythological Troy from the land of Earth.  Perhaps when
I go back to replace the graduates, and possibly the dead, I will bring back some
artists.
     This team is one that I am taking great pride in, the goal being to have every
type of warrior come thru and graduate without a single recruit failing in this task.
Obviously I've got the best available, so it may be difficult to accomplish, but I am
trusting my recruiting skills and managerial talent to bring only those that can
succeed, even if it takes years for some.  So I'll begin to write more and allow my
warriors to speak as well, although when I tried 6 cycles ago for some reason none of
what was written was published!  Maybe the carrier got lost on the way.

Zalgor Prigg, manager Greats of Troy

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for KASTENMAR, who pummelled CHERYL MILLER, to pocket 13 
points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, KASTENMAR was winsome, after 
beating CHERYL MILLER and seeing her lose 9 points.  Duelmaster QUINCY WATTS from 
GREATS OF TROY is going for the gold, as he challenged SAND DANCERS' SUNSET THUNDER.  
Ooh, the excitement!  SUNSET THUNDER found out that JADE MOUNTAIN isn't a democracy.  
You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in JADE 
MOUNTAIN is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are JADE MOUNTAIN's warriors?  Come, let us see.  If challenges 
were horses, KORTO LU could open up a fast food joint!  Mismatched by 8 points, KORTO 
LU was beat by ROD DEDEAUX.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought ROD DEDEAUX 
showed great skill and promise when he defeated KORTO LU.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Never one to advocate 
diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see SAND DANCERS retaliate against GREATS 
OF TROY in bloodfeud!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body 
parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in JADE MOUNTAIN would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid JADE MOUNTAIN 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Does anyone read this newsletter?  Does Quincy Watts know what I think of his
silence?  To be sure, holding the title under these circumstances is not impressive,
but he could at least give us a few words now and then. -- Jade Ring

Jaguar Jon -- Bah.  Also, fie. -- Sunset Thunder

Rod Dedeaux -- I hope you choke on those skills. -- Korto Lu

Debbie Green -- Oh, was there a fight today?  I didn't notice. -- Kastenmar

Cheryl Miller -- I could've gone a long time, quite happily, without that. -- Ghost
of Tiger Lily

     Zalgor Prigg -- I hope I decoded your spotlight well enough, but I urge you to
