                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Madame U-Tana won again, but she's busy with the dragonboat races, sponsoring a
boat or a party or something, so she can't sneak in and grab off the column.  Ha!
That must mean that she isn't truly dedicated to gladiating.  But then, who is?  Yes,
it's a living, but I'll tell the world that it isn't a life.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt DAYLA KIV will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SAND DANCERS is pushed out of top team by FACING WORLDS, who came from 
3rd with a 2-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for FORCE OF FIVE, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 6th. 
CORPS stable has parlayed this turn's 2-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  
This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, SAND CAPPER 
fought KORBA KLEE and gained 20 points and contributed to ARENA FELINES' 2-3-0.  
KORBA KLEE has lost to SAND CAPPER, falling 17 points, while helping make SAND 
DANCERS a 0-5-0 turn.  And not without some honor, RAGING PYROTHAG now claims the 
title and throne of Duelmaster of DAYLA KIV.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Crystal Wheel uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  CORPS has cause to stand tall, as they were 
DAYLA KIV's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
guess who avoided CORPS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was FACING WORLDS.  
Anyone surprised?  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?  Is it really true that DAYLA KIV has more dishwashers per capita 
that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in DAYLA KIV and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
