                             Notes from the arena champ.

Look who's sitting back on top of the litter box--Dayla Kiv's favorite werecat?  No, 
it's not him, it's me, Regalus Fury.  And looking down the ranking's chart who do I 
see below me?  My teammates!  It's a banner turn for the Argonauts' stable, taking the 
top five spots in the arena.  That's a first, and likely, the last time such a thing 
may happen.  Medea's head will be bigger than ever now, and everyone here is to blame 
for that.  Shame on you! 

What this means for me is next turn I get to defend my title against one of those 
pesky arena stand-ins, or another pumped-up tourney warrior stepping out of the 
woodwork to ambush the title.  Either could happen.  It's crazy, but then again so is 
being a gladiator.  Crazy business.  Don't get into it, folks.  The fewer fighters 
standing in my way of immortality, the better. 

Methinks someone has snuck some catnip into my fish-n-chips.  I'm feelin' a little 
dizzy, a little cuckoo. Gotta go get my head clear in time for my next fight.  Time to 
walk across a few paths and bring some bad luck to people.  Where do the stand-ins 
live? 

                                          -- Regalus Fury, the Champion of Dayla Kiv
                                             and the Katzenjammer of the Stray Cats 

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in DAYLA 
KIV.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for PELDAN DJIAN, who flew up 27 points in the rankings after 
mashing SHEWISH HORROR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days 
it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SHEWISH HORROR was beat by PELDAN DJIAN and 
drops 23 points.  Well, everybody's pal REGALUS FURY moved his record to 15-4-0 by 
defeating KOMAR THE PENNILESS in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 2 
recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the DAYLA KIV giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been fun, and 
I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, 
I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Hanval the Claw -- I think you lost your grip on that fight.  Ha ha.  Nevermind. Just 
feline humor. -- R. Fury

Madame U-Tana -- We needn't meet under such vile conditions as the arena, madame.  A 
nice, cozy cafe, wine, violins, breadsticks.  Yes, breadsticks!  That would be 
perfect. -- J. Fair

Street Sweeper -- A street sweeper!  By the knots in my beard, I've never been so 
insulted.  Send me a real warrior.  But not too tough, just a little bit tougher than 
a street sweeper.  HAR, HAR.  That's dwarven humor. -- Tane

Peldan Djian -- Thrust, parry, repeat.  Thrust, parry, repeat.  That's how we're 
taught in the Shewish Forest.  Boring, but effective. -- S. Horror

Jorja -- Are you a member of the Commission? -- Medea 

Shewish Horror -- Augh, you're horrible! -- Peldan Djian
P.S.  What else could I say?

Ravana -- I couldn't see you down there. -- Red Kogan

Ah, standbys. -- Tiogan Crow and Ardia Li

Oh, cool, a win right away!  I LIKE this. -- Krenshew

Regulus Fury -- Oh, I intend to enjoy it a LOT.  Fishing.  I've got a little place on 
the river half a day above the city.  They tell me the fishing is good, and the local 
tavern has good micro beer, so long as you've got a magnifying glass to see it.  Come 
visit. -- Baikal s'Kren
