                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That foolish boy Ronsevan should be ASHAMED of himself!  To do so poorly,
really, he was such an easy target that it was embarrassing, and then PRESUME to call
himself the Duel2Dude!  *I* won the fight, and I am the one who should speak in this
forum.  But the Commission is hardly a fair employer, as we "standbys" have come to
realize.

                                    Madame U-Tana

I got pre-empted.  Sorry.

                                      Ronsevan

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DAIYLA KIV games.  Not for nothing has RONSEVAN in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat 
skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained 
their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DAIYLA KIV "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition 
from those below.  MITRILLAO take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in 
DAIYLA KIV.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that 
SUM OF ALL MEN posted a challenge against the more highly recognized CHESSARA.  The 
results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand SUM OF ALL MEN defeated CHESSARA.  Remember 
warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in DAIYLA KIV as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Honda -- I didn't realize that you guys made big, BIG trucks! -- Garmon Chang

Jello Boy -- I hope you realize that I did you a service?  In fixing your undefeated
record, you know.  Every warrior should have a defeat.  It gives perspective and
keeps his manager from getting carried away. -- Chessara

Sam the Slug -- You are, rather.  I got so TIRED of smashing you to bits of jelly and
then seeing you come back together again. -- Korba Klee

Shameless doesn't even BEGIN to describe that horrid Beggar! -- Mitrillao

Amendment for "Fratsfa's 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
