     "Allright yous' all, get ova 'ere and sit eh?  I don ave time fer ya skinchy
wiggens tanite weve got ta git it betta than last time or day'll tromp us."  Krago
leaned into his haunches and put his hands out to the fire, craning his head about at
the rest of the crew and flexing his arms.
     "Tromp us, stomp us trussle tussle tat.  Help us know just where you're at!"
The glimli dark eyed young woman crooned between cartwheels.  "Why do we have to sit
all the time when we meet?  Planted minds and planted feet, I have a waxing moon to
meet..."
     Krago's eyes darted around at the others before finally landing on the fire
before him.  "Jus' tryin to 'elp eh mis'?  Weve got som serious movin to do tonit.
The charge is in danja' and were all the way out here doin acrobatics and moon talkin
riddles?"  The last few words trailed softly into his hands, as he quickly and
earnestly wove those words like they were threads between his fingers.
     Across from him and to his left a shadow slid out from beneath the trunk of the
large oak at the edge of the circle of cadres and a pair of sharp eyes glinted and
spoke.  "Well, my friends, it seems we are all here except for Stormy, and Creator.
I haven't heard hide nor hair of Creator for several moons, but Storm...hmm, this is
puzzling."
     The woman leaned backwards towards the shadow and smiled, arcing over onto her
hands she pivoted as she spoke.  "Well met, Loe, shadow walker, willow talker.  You
had some time to contemplate, to Dayla Kiv and don't be late.  I think we find our
missing two and cross the fire before were through."  As she spoke she maintained eye
contact with Loendal and pivoted around on her left hand, brought her right hand
around to the floor and held herself still for a moment.  Then, walking on her hands
towards the fire and smiling with childish glee she brought her feet to the ground,
sprung back onto her hands, then dove back and up, twisting out over the flames
landing on the other side in a crouch. "Krago?"
     "Yes love?"
     "Are we ready for the arena?" Krago looked up from his hands, his warm smile
framing a curious glint in his eyes.  "Ye will know that fer yerself better than we,
tis yer life you risk child.  Don' matter wetha we die so much, we all will ya'know.
Tha gift is in what you have ta look back on with pride eh?"
     Loendal nodded solemnly from his shadows.  "Let's find the Storm now, my
friends, we have much left to do."

                        Zalcon MVP Standings through Turn 22

     Well, I went through and audited the Top 20 warriors in the contest and verified
the point scoring system with the original All Arena Ad and found there are no points
for graduating.  I had not given Tom Riddle his graduation points so no change there
but it did affect Mickey Hatcher.  The only warrior that may slip into the 61 point
range is Summer, who I will audit next turn should she stay top Striker.
     Without further ado, here are the completely accurate and official ZalCon MVP
standings:

1.   Tom Riddle          ST  Salazar Slytherin   103
2.   Vincent Crabbe      AB  Salazar Slytherin   89
3.   Songbird            BA  Tig Toad            83
4.   Mickey Hatcher      SL  Zalgor Prigg        72
5.   Durany              WS  Bum                 71
6.   Eraser              TP  Manager             69
7.   Tony Tavler         PS  Dr Mabuse           61
8.   Ultra Endeavor      PR  Slaughter Priest    60
9.   Ganglare            LU  Skullagrim          55
10.  Kirk Gibson         PS  Zalgor Prigg        53
11.  Cookie Jones        TP  Manager             51
12.  Jay Howell          LU  Zalgor Prigg        51
13.  Dreihden Plunger    PL  Dreihdenflagh       49

I am sorry I do not have any official news from Lee but she has been busy with
tourney I am sure.  My proposals will be know favorites for non graduated warriors,
+1 to bonus and/or damage bump for the warriors who are in the final standings.

That's it for now!

                                   Iron Team Award

After 22 turns I figure it is time to send out a list of the teams still in
contention for running their warriors free in the upcoming Face to Face tourney.
Only 3 turns left so 100 fights keeps you in.  Remember you need 115 total fights to
win this award.

Here is the list through Turn 22

1. Vuelta Peleton      109
2. 1988 Dodgers        108
3. Slytherin House     108
4. Dark Toadz          108
5. Force of Five       108
6. The Dreihdens       106
7. Wicked Destiny      105
8. Faulty Premises     103
9. STDs                100

That's the Final 9 still in the hunt.  STDs needs to fight every warrior for the last
3 turns, Faulty Premises has only 3 fights leeway but the top 7 can still miss a full
turn and get the prize.  I would like to thank everyone on this list for helping make
this contest a success!

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Since Manager didn't write a column last turn, I feel like I should this turn.
I feel that for the short time that is left in this contest this may be my only
chance to write this.  While Durany is my best WS ever, there are many that can
defeat him Jay Howell being one of them, he defeated soundly only 2 or 3 turns ago.
The only problem is that he has to hope one of Manager's TPs doesn't blood feud me.
The two styles that have given my WS fits in the arena and in tourneys have been LU
and TP.  In all his fights with LU he has only one once and he has yet to defeat any
TPs.  My only hope is that he has finally found his preferred weapon, we will see
what happens.
     While I have this time I would also like to thank Zalgor for setting up this
contest.  It's a great measuring stick to see where I rank in arena play.  After the
Hammer 2002 contest in 33, I looked forward to proving myself in this one.  I set 3
goals in this tourney, first was to have at least a .500 record.  I had a .400 record
in 33 and I have a chance to meet my first goal.  My second goal is to win at least
one SM.  I had high hopes for my LU but poor learning has not made that possible.
Good news is that my WS has a chance but China has been gaining ground.  It will all
depend on how well and how long Manager blood feuds me.  My last goal was to be close
in the kill title.  While I'm in the top 5 or so my numbers are disappointing.  With
my kills one was on an alliance mate, one was a DA kill and both of Durany's have
been infirmary kills.
     Time to fax in my warriors and hope my new RU's come back bonused.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for DAIYLA KIV.  Too bad, DARK TOADZ, but 
FORCE OF FIVE was just too good to be stopped.  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings 
or anything, but WICKED DESTINY really goofed with their 1-4-0.  The guys at STDS 
like really pulled together to get a 3-2-0 this turn, moving up by 7.  One team 
deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 5 after going 3-1-1.  Keep it up, THE 
DREIHDENS!  MVP award for DREIHDEN PLUNGER?  THE DREIHDENS' proud of him after 
beating JADOW and getting 27 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  JADOW got 
smashed by DREIHDEN PLUNGER, and lost 24 points!  Like, <COOKIE JONES> must be pretty 
gutsy!  She Bloodfeuded the Duelmaster from WICKED DESTINY.  Does this gal have a 
death wish or what!  Was that a tear I saw in <COOKIE JONES>'s eye, as she took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't DURANY fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of DARK TOADZ must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are VUELTA PELETON?  DARK TOADZ, an easy team 
to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can SAND DANCERS' 
SYR-DAVAN be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really 
the same?  VINCENT CRABBE is being unfair.  He's challenged down 41 against 
SYPHILLUS.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) I was 
sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in DAIYLA KIV.  VINCENT CRABBE got 19 points 
after beating SYPHILLUS, 41 points below him.  Some fights are really unfair.  How do 
you think ULTRA ENDEAVOR feels about being challenged by LORD VOLDEMORT, 22 points 
above her?  If LORD VOLDEMORT can't beat a warrior 22 points below himself, that he 
CHALLENGED, he oughtta be selling food in the stands!  Ooh!  Did <CORUSCATOR> really 
know what she was doing when she challenged SUMMER?  A 11-11-0 speaks volumes.  
(Zontoni said that.  I don't know what it means.) SUMMER defeated <CORUSCATOR>, and 
was I surprised (right!).  But its a good thing SUMMER could stop laughing long 
enough to give <CORUSCATOR> a good pounding.  See if I ever talk to GREGORY GOYLE 
again!  TSIRELL was so low when He challenged he.  Hhmph!  TSIRELL is a real man!  He 
was challenged by GREGORY GOYLE, 16 points above, and BEAT him!  Dark Arena, anyone?  
People were asking me did CLONE MISHAP REALLY challenge TILAEN TYL SANH?  (all right, 
maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, 
but TILAEN TYL SANH wants me to write about it since she subdued CLONE MISHAP.  
Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All DAIYLA KIV ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Like, who is this guy???  FRANKIE THE FISH gets sent to the 
Dark Arena, battles KOLAS STONEATER, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet FORCE OF 
FIVE manager is surprised!  I hear ROOT OF ALL EVIL sent FAI TESTH to the Dark Arena. 
What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  How cruel!  CAT FIGHT heartlessly sent 
hers to SLUT certain fate in the Dark Arena.  Is a 6-12-0 bad or something?  What a 
bummer!  SYPHILLUS got wasted by VINCENT CRABBE!  But with a 12-11-0, I guess STDS 
aren't too bummed.  I see SYPHILLUS got killed by VINCENT CRABBE of SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  
Now I want to see some serious Bloodfeud action out there!  NURNLING bloodfeuded (is 
that a word?) GROUND POUNDER for revenge over some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really 
worth it?  <COOKIE JONES> really fought hard against DURANY.  That'll teach WICKED 
DESTINY not to go and kill any of SUPERIOR FORCES ZC's guys again, huh!  What if they 
had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Wow, it's a lot more quiet in here now than it was a few months ago, eh?  Only 2
turns after this one left in Zalcon. -- TigToad

Pelak ten Zorn -- Well, getting fresh with me wouldn't do you any good anyway.  I'm a
lady. -- Virgin Queen

Salazar Slytherin -- I've entered Pansy into the list for the PR contest. -- TigToad

All -- Would anyone be willing to swap style information?  Drop me a diplo. --
Skullagrim

Carnivorous Sheep -- Sorry about that. -- Skullagrim

Father William -- You're such a good teacher I had to come back. -- Ganglare

Vincent Crabbe -- I'll have you on a permanent avoid from now on, geez. -- Hofding
Warg

Tig Toad -- Will our tournament kills count in the contest? -- Skullagrim

Santiago -- I plan on blood feuding you for as long as I can but I don't expect to
win.  My warriors have lost to you a few times now and I know I have not the speed to
out jump you or the defense to withstand you.  I just hope for skills. -- Bum

All -- For those that care this was Kinslayer.  15-10(2)-5-13-13-9-21  Master Attack
and Ex in Rip  9(3)-18(12)-25(6)-13(5)-10(1)-10(3)  He had normal endurance and
damage, Ambi and +4 Attack.  He may or may not run in the dead tourney since he has
23 FE and is learning at 1.5 skills per turn. -- Bum

Joru Mane -- I may have to try that again. -- Jadow

Ultra Endeavor -- I think you must be trying too hard. -- Tilaen tyl Sanh

Dreihden Tag -- I would not laugh at anyone making a serious effort, and I would
NEVER make that tactless and tasteless comment about begging.  I am a professional.
-- Syr-Davan
P.S.  And I really need to get some political points and get out of here!  This has
gone on too long.

Rick Dempsey -- Damn, I hate that.  Winning right up until I fall over from
exhaustion.  Do you think I need to do wind sprints or something?  Maybe cut down on
the deep fat fries and the sweet wine? -- Pelak ten Zorn, reluctant to give up the
flesh pots

Black Orpheus -- Not my kind of tune, that. -- Donstan

That was one mean standby!  I think he some bloodlust for a while there.  Watch out
for him. -- Tsirell

All -- My mail service is killing me!  Hopefully I won't miss any more turns. --
Skullagrim

All -- Would anyone be willing to swap some style information?  Drop me a diplo. --
Skullagrim

Carnivorous Sheep -- Sorry about that. -- Sigard

That son of a gun, Van Owen. -- Kokanee

Bum -- I noticed you were not capable of a successful bloodfeud against Santiago.
I'll see what I can do for ya. -- China/Polish Dozen

I've been used and abused too long.  Now that you party boys are down with me.  My
next Rave is being held in the Dark Arena. -- Slut

Songbird -- Nice challenge, old boy...nice challenge.  See you round.  Keep your eyes
open.  Smile. -- Syhillus

D. Plunger -- I must grant this, you have great heart to challenge way up.  Glad I
ran that strat or you would have overcome me. -- The Infector, Gonorrhoea

Young Blood -- Will let you know where I'm moving after contest is over, then if you
wish we can get it on.  Better yet...tell me where I can find you and your boys. --
