                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is I, the great AULDRYMBREI.  I am king of Daiyla Kiv and I soon hope to
graduate from this fine city.  When I finally do, I wish someone with some class will
take over my throne.  Hehehehehee...yeah...yeah...I know...I know...because I have no
class of my own.  Hey...always have a sense of humor and remember to laugh, even at
yourself.  Hey...it kept me alive...smile?  Go figure?  To all of you fine and
upstanding gladiators of DAIYLA KIV...always keep your blades sharp, minds sharp,
fight well and protect this wonderful city.

                                        Auldrymbrei -- the wonderful

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in DAYLA KIV this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as DISMAL ALLIANCE is pushed out of top team by GURTARG'S AXES, who came 
from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  The SAND DANCERS guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, GARMON CHANG fought CHANDAR LO and gained 20 points and 
contributed to SAND DANCERS' 5-0-0.  Defending his title for another turn, 
AULDRYMBREI kept DAYLA KIV's warrior, TRAVELING TINKER, from claiming the throne.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Crystal Wheel?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in DAYLA KIV, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in DAYLA KIV again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Glaerikim -- You have to understand that the REAL problem is wind.  You simply cannot
photograph golden leaves against a gray roof when the wind is blowing.  Doesn't
matter which WAY it's blowing, there will always be wind on the (expletive deleted)
leaves.  You end up with a photo that might be anything, such as the dog's dinner or
a piece of "modern art."  Annoying. -- Mitrillao

Hmm, we went two-two against standbys.  I'm waiting to hear what explanation the two
losers have. -- Li Dan

Adalius -- Well, we are very happy to hear the news of your graduation.  Yes, very
happy to hear such good news.  Godspeed to you and keep your eyes open and blades
sharp for there are battles to be won. -- Auldrymbrei and Glaerikim comrades forever,
hugs and kisses

Mitrillao -- I hate being matched up with others...I have many more (FE) than you yet
we are matched up in order to please the crowds of this city.  We'll have to get this
investigated.  What do you say?  wink...oh...hope you make out much better on our
next fight. -- Glaerikim

All -- My very first graduate...now will I see what ADM is all about?  Hope I can
graduate more in the near future. -- Sir Chester

All -- Good luck in all that you do.  Godspeed to all. -- Gurtarg's Axes (447)

Dismal Alliance -- C'mon now...please return so I may kick the dust off your tin
cans. -- Gurtarg's Axes

Facin Worlds -- Oh...hope you also will return...we have unfinished feuds to settle.
-- Gurtarg's Axes

The South -- You must have gone south huh?  Heeeeeheeeeheeeee...hope to see you back
soon. -- Gurtarg's Axes

Sand Dancers -- Glad you're still here...wow...it would be a ghost town if you were
to shut down.  Hope I can still fight after the tourney...we'll see what happens in
the future. -- Sir Chester

Lord Protector Adalius -- I am instructed to offer you lands on the usual terms:  the
estate is on a border, and you have to live there and defend it against raiders and
ruffians.  At this time, we have nothing but a fortified manor house, reputed to be
in adequate repair (and you know what THAT means) on the northern border of Dal Shang
Province.  They tell me that it is in a forested area, and I know that all up there
is quite hilly.  Access is by way of an "unimproved" road.  I don't even want to
guess what THAT might mean.  Well, I don't have to, and you probably don't, either.
Lord Protector Ronsevan, who departed for his "lands" two months ago, says that it is
near his place and is a "fixer-upper."  And that there is, in fact, Something in the
woods, but he hasn't figured out what it is yet.  He says that it is "a great chance
for adventure."  Take that with a grain of salt, my dear Adalius, because that is
almost certain to mean "a great chance to be cold, hungry, beaten up, lost, etc." and
who wants that?  Still, if you DO want to visit this place and possibly even claim
it, contact me. -- Harizon, Arena Steward
P.S.  A diplo with a little personal information sent to the Scribe will get a short
spotlight written about it.  Maybe more than a short one, but no promises.

Magic Man -- You are a fellow Canadian, are you not?  Where do you hail from?  I live
in Kelowna, B.C. -- Maximillian, 8,13, 28, 47, 54

It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
