                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     Five women stand on stage dressed in strange, colorful clothing.  In each of
their hands they hold a magical device used to enhance the loudness of their voice.
Multi-colored mage lights shimmer and shine around them as a deep bass beat begins to
flow through the area.
     One of the women steps forward and says, "We be Femme Fatales from lands far
away.  And though you may not like us, we be here to stay.  You be goin' down if you
get in our way.  'Cause no matter what you think, Femme Fatales ain't here to play.
     "My name is Mary Beth.  Slayer's my last name.  If you step up to me, I'll play
you like a board game..."
     A new girl steps forward each time, introducing herself in rhyme.
     "I be Carol Ann.  I'm known to be a Killer.  If you piss me off, I'll use you
like a roto-tiller."
     "I'm Toni Danielle.  Rending's what I know.  Play me like a fool and I'll treat
you like Play-Doh!"
     "I'm Dawn Marie.  I may not be here long.  But, until I go, I'll beat you like
I'm King Kong."
     "Sarah Lee Destroyer.  My name means I'm not fake.  I ain't into playin' house.
And I ain't baking no cake!"
     "We be the Femme Fatales.  And none of us be lying.  Meet us on the sands and
you'll certainly be crying... or dying!"
      WORD!

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Can't have lawyers getting above themselves!  I figure it's everyone's job to
slap 'em down, and when the chance came, I DID it.  Whap.

                                  Mountain Storm

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JADE MOUNTAIN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with KOGAN 
DJIAN?  He actually beat JADE MOUNTAIN's KO-HA OAKCHOPPER, and walked away with 20 
more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at SAND DANCERS while they watched FAN 
TAL clobber FEUNTE.  He lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  JADE MOUNTAIN, set your sights on KO-HA OAKCHOPPER.  He'll be happy to 
entertain all requests after defeating MOUNTAIN STORM.  KOGAN DJIAN looked pretty 
Duelmasterlike as he took JADE MOUNTAIN's top spot with 78 points.  Now, what will 
MOUNTAIN STORM do?  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Let's see...  Uh, looks like SAND DANCERS has one 
week left to revenge RIA BLUEBIRD's death.  But TRES tells me he's not losing any 
sleep.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so 
young, so gloriously!   
     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
