                            Zalcon MVP List thru Turn 21

     Well, the MVP contest is almost over but I will be listing the top warriors
every turn from now on.  The cutoff to make the list this turn is 45 and will raise
by 4 each turn so any warrior with above 61 points will be listed in the final MVP
column.  I will be asking Lee this week if there is any way to get some extra prize
for the managers of these warriors.

Here are the qualifying warriors this turn:

1.   Tom Riddle          ST  Salazar Slytherin  102
2.   Vincent Crabbe      AB  Salazar Slytherin   83
3.   Mickey Hatcher      SL  Zalgor Prigg        83
4.   Songbird            BA  Tig Toad            78
5.   Eraser              TP  Manager             67
6.   Durany              WS  Bum                 61
7.   Ultra Endeavor      PR  Slaughter Priest    60
8.   Tony Tavler         PS  Dr Mabuse           58
9.   Folger's Crystals   ST  Manager             55
10.  Ganglare            LU  Skullagrim          55
11.  Cookie Jones        TP  Manager             51
12.  Kirk Gibson         PS  Zalgor Prigg        49
13.  Dreihden Plunger    PL  Dreihdenflagh       48
14.  Syphillus           PL  Upinya              47
15.  Stan the Man        ST  Marshall D          46
16.  Father William      LU  Tig Toad            45
17.  Hofding Warg        TP  Skullagrim          45

     That's the list this time out with 8 warriors either clinched or just needing to
fight the last 4 turns to make the final list.  I will start thinking about possible
rewards and bounce them off Lee in the next week and next turn the prize for the
final MVP list warriors will be announced!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in DAIYLA KIV a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  Now keep the taverns open 
late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for STDS, whose 1-2-0 this turn dropped 
them by 6 into 17th.  SAND DANCERS stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 6 
space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 7th place.  Good work, guys!  The 
FORCE OF FIVE guild has had a 5-0-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  
You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, SANTIAGO fought 
KINSLAYER and gained 22 points and contributed to DARK TOADZ's 4-1-1.  IKER FLORES 
has lost to NURNLING, falling 18 points, while helping make VUELTA PELETON a 2-3-0 
turn.  Well done, DAIYLA KIV, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior. 
Perhaps <FOLGER'S CRYSTALS> is not as thrilled, being challenged 7 times.  DURANY 
challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone SUPERIOR FORCES 
ZC's warrior.  Somebody's not going to like this, (then again, somebody will), but 
our Duelmaster, <FOLGER'S CRYSTALS>, has died, and DURANY has killed him.  By the 
way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The 
Crystal Wheel?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  DARK TOADZ has cause to stand tall, as they 
were DAIYLA KIV's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided DARK TOADZ stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was WICKED 
DESTINY.  Anyone surprised?  Building dreams on hope, <CORUSCATOR> challenged up 29 
points this turn to take on SUMMER from FORCE OF FIVE stable.  But Fate isn't always 
willing to be cheated, and <CORUSCATOR> was beat by SUMMER, and FORCE OF FIVE has not 
stopped laughing.  DREIHDEN PLUNGER from THE DREIHDENS took a risk this turn by 
bravely challenging up 29 points in a challenge against GONORRHOEA.  Sad to say, 
DREIHDEN PLUNGER lost to GONORRHOEA, and the attempt ended up costing DREIHDEN 
PLUNGER 1 recognition points.   
     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.  Had I not seen it, it would be hard 
to believe.  FRANKIE THE FISH was sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  
Makes you think, no?  The grave that ROOT OF ALL EVIL had dug for FAI TESTH may yet 
be filled with the body of TALL SHARO-SKA.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  
FAI TESTH lives still!  WICKED DESTINY has lost KINSLAYER to the arena in the sky, 
but they don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 11-10-0?  Now it looks 
like DREIHDEN TP is gone, and forgotten too, now that THE DREIHDENS did not revenge 
FORCE OF FIVE's FRANKIE THE FISH for killing DREIHDEN TP.  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in DAIYLA KIV, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in DAIYLA KIV again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
