                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Chandar Lo, M. Chardinee, you DARE to threaten me?  This will not be forgotten,
and when the time is right, you will pay for it.

                                      Chessara

                                      SPY REPORT

     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 CORPS is pushed out of 
top team by SAND DANCERS, who came from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, 
MARY KAY fought KORBA KLEE and gained 25 points and contributed to CORPS' 2-1-0.  
KORBA KLEE has lost to MARY KAY, falling 7 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 
3-2-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, CHESSARA kept DAYLA KIV's 
warrior, PELIS THE OLD, from claiming the throne.  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?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  SAND DANCERS has lost TERRILIS to the arena in the sky, but they 
don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 1-9-0?  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.  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

The Traveling Tinker decided that traveling on was the better part of survival sense.
If we have a Tinker on the sands this week, it will be a different tinker. -- Garmon
Chang

Spalding -- You needed a loss, for the good of your soul.  Everyone knows that being
undefeated is Bad.  It makes your teeth rot and gives you zits. -- Korba Klee

Mary Kay -- Yes, but...I look AWFUL in pink! -- Terrilis

The Beggar was shameless, so of COURSE I buried him in the sand.  What else could I
do? -- Jujuble
