     Hail DAYLA KIV!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as FACING WORLDS is 
pushed out of top team by SAND DANCERS, who came from 3rd with a 3-2-1 this turn.  
Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for FACING 
WORLDS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 5th.  GURTARG'S AXES stable has 
parlayed this turn's 1-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 4th place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, ADALIUS fought RONSEVAN and gained 20 
points and contributed to GURTARG'S AXES' 1-0-0.  RONSEVAN has lost to ADALIUS, 
falling 8 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 3-2-1 turn.  Due to his absence 
and inability to defend the throne, RAGING PYROTHAG has lost the title of Duelmaster. 
And all eyes were on ADALIUS this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
DAYLA KIV has a new victor!  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Crystal Wheel until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
SAND DANCERS' warrior RONSEVAN.  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?  This is not good to see.  Why pray tell has BUDWEISER been sent to 
the Dark Arena by CORPS?  And why with a 3-0-0 record??  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
