     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in KYR'TERR this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as NEW YORK is pushed out of top team by OUTER GODS, who came from 5th 
with a 5-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for NEW YORK, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 5th.  
OUTER GODS stable has parlayed this turn's 5-0-0 into a 4 space move up the rankings. 
This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, SALLY TURKEL 
fought PINEAPPLE and gained 18 points and contributed to THE ZOO's 3-2-0.  PINEAPPLE 
has lost to SALLY TURKEL, falling 8 points, while helping make PIZZA TOPPINGS a 2-3-0 
turn.  And not without some honor, MUSHROOM now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of KYR'TERR.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Swinging Aardvark until they win.  
Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  PIZZA TOPPINGS has cause to stand tall, 
as they were KYR'TERR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided PIZZA TOPPINGS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was OUTER GODS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that SALLY TURKEL 
from THE ZOO was KYR'TERR's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     I like this place, KYR'TERR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
