                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail, Daiyla Kiv!

(Or whatever we're called now.)

At last I sit upon the throne.  It has been long enough in coming, but not too bad
considering the very parry-ripness of my make-up, as Manager would say.  Congrats to
all the recent Lord Protectors who cleared off to make room for me at the top.  I
expect to receive my own invitation after the present turn, unfortunately meaning
that knowledge of my favorites from the recent contest won't be needed by the time it
comes through.

My thanks go out to all the members of the erstwhile ZC Underground for contributing
to my success here in town.  Congrats to all the prize winners (oh! and TigToad too
;) ) but especially to those in our own little band.  Good work.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, CHAVEZ RAVINE?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, FORCE OF FIVE, since 
1988 DODGERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the 
taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for FORCE OF FIVE, whose 
0-1-0 this turn dropped them by 9 into 10th.  Ha!  RED STRIPE ALL-STARS turned their 
3-0-0 turn into a 3rd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, 
and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, but don't get 
cocky, SLYTHERIN HOUSE, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see KIRK GIBSON win a fight and gain 24 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DREIHDEN TAG beat PELAK TEN ZORN and PELAK TEN ZORN lost 
14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  JORU MANE challenged CHAVEZ RAVINE's 
Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, CHAVEZ 
RAVINE may be getting bland, as ULTRA ENDEAVOR stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in 
a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, 
don't you, CHAVEZ RAVINE?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  CHAVEZ RAVINE, I am losing what little hope I had in 
you.  1988 DODGERS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  
And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  
It was FAULTY PREMISES.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, PELAK TEN ZORN 
was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I 
suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but GARIDO has challenged up by 28 
in an attempt against LORD TAYLOR.  Not that I'm surprised or anything, but GARIDO 
was overcame by LORD TAYLOR, leaving the latter lower for recognition points.  Looks 
like time for laurels or hemlock, KRAGO was challenged by TSALMOTH, who was ranked 29 
points below him.  But here's a pretty tale--TSALMOTH did lose the fight, but gained 
6 worth of recognition.  Some long shots can pay off, I guess.  Now here's guts and 
stupidity all rolled into one, BIG BRUTHA' challenged up 26 to take on RIFF-RAFF of 
RED STRIPE ALL-STARS.  And sure, BIG BRUTHA' lost alright, but gained 3 recognition 
for his pains.  And pains they may indeed be!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  VUELTA PELETON has cause to pause today, as ANGEL EDO 
was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, I'll 
wager.  Whoa!  I'll even buy SANTIAGO a drink tonight!  Anyone who can come back from 
the Dark Arena, I want to be on his good side!  DARK TOADZ has cause to pause today, 
as FATHER WILLIAM was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best 
of moods, I'll wager.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the CHAVEZ RAVINE arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

I feel much better now that you have had a chance to avenge your teammate's death. --
Loendal

A rough crew of warriors here, I must say.  A salute to the challengers and the
challenged. -- Krago

Dancing lovely lingery lights, about your head after our fights -- Silver Moon

That hurt.  A LOT!  I think I need to stay here for a while and establish myself
before I feel good about moving on. -- Big Brutha

Li Dan -- Faulty Premises will remain at least until several members graduate.
Longer if enough teams remain to keep it entertaining or either of our two dead
members ever fight their way back to the arena.

Donstan -- It's the manner that our manager chooses to "train" us for becoming
gladiators that's based on Faulty Premises. -- KKat

Tsirell -- Your welcome.  If my opponents have the wit, I certainly have the
experience.  I'd like that train I keep missing now, though! -- Kages Fault

Sloppy -- Sober up for the next fight, buddy.  You went out so quickly, I barely
learned at all.... -- Ultra

Jay Howell -- I wish I could trade in some PP's for skills.  Might help me get one
step closer to retirement.  As the last holdover from the old days my manager keeps
giving me a funny look. -- Joru Mane

Loendal -- I guess that will have to count as revenge. -- Chen Wyn Mi

Hot Point -- I guess those skills are worth a few cuts from a hot blade. -- Taishaku

Draco Malfoy -- Accept those skills as a gift you won't get again, as I am returning
to the teva circuit.  Gladiating is not the life for me. -- Syr-Davan

Pansy Parkinson -- You're the biggest pansy I've ever seen. -- Tsirell

Max Factor -- Ptui!  Ack! -- Donstan
P.S.  Ouch.

Kirk Gibson -- Arenamaster Dernal is such a spoilsport.  It would have been FUN to
bury you in the sand. -- Pelak

Jadow -- You're a GREAT teacher, thanks! -- Tialen tyl Sanh

Joru Mane -- Thank you, but as I indicated above, I have no plans to fight on the
Isle. -- Syr-Davan

8 December 2003
Greetings!  I would like to invite everyone to Jhans (DM 36) for the first annual kLk
St. Valentine's Day Massacre (kill contest).  We will start the contest off with the
ceremonial burning of the Andorian flag on turn 450.  (Six turns away.  Roughly mid-
February.)  The contest will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461, 3 separate victors will
be announced.  Team with the most kills, warrior with the most kills, and alliance
with the most kills.  Prizes will be awarded to the manager of the team with the most
kills and to the manager of the warrior with the most kills.  The prizes will
probably be team roll-ups.  The number of roll-ups has yet to be determined.  The
contest is sponsored by Jhans' newest, (but by the time the contest starts) largest
alliance, the kLk (pronounced "klick"). -- Polarius, mgr. of Blitzkrieg DM 36
