                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A standby?  Does nobody CARE who has the title of Best Professional Duelist of
Daiyla Kiv?  This is so embarrassing, and to be honest, my presence in this position
is so accidental and meaningless....

                                       Ronsevan

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in DAIYLA KIV this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  FORCE OF FIVE stable has parlayed this 
turn's 2-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  
Good work, guys!  And let's see, MITRILLAO fought SHAMELESS BEGGAR and gained 15 
points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 3-2-0.  IRON MAIDEN has lost to SUM OF ALL 
MEN, falling 6 points, while helping make GEMSTONE CREATIONS a 1-1-0 turn.  Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to MADAME U-TANA, BUT RONSEVAN is still the 
Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Crystal Wheel uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  The most challenged warrior this turn was SAND DANCERS' 
warrior GARMON CHANG.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in DAIYLA KIV and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!

Amendment for "Fratsfas Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
