                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well me, Dayla Kiv.  I'm George Jetson and I am you Duelmaster.

I am actually the youngest Duelmaster EVER in the history of this arena, or at least
the recored history, 6 fights.  What?  I have tourney experience?  Well, just a
little...

So anyway, I'm a pretty cool guy - my family says so.  At least this fighting in the
arena gets me away from Mr. Spacely, my former boss, so I have to like it.  And I'm
home in plenty of time to spend the evenings with Jane, my wife, my kids and even
Astro...  As much of a pain in the neck as he is!

So, I thank you all for this chance!  And for letting me bring my cool future
technology to your out dated sport!  I mean what chance do guys with scimitars have
against my ray gun?

Who's next?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DAYLA KIV games.  HONG KONG PHOOEY caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LARIS TYL ZORA and was 
awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HONG KONG 
PHOOEY put down LARIS TYL ZORA, causing her to lose 10 points of recognition in the 
process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail CAT STEVENS, 
Duelmaster of DAYLA KIV!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  DARKLINGS is feared.  This much I 
can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of HANNA BARBARIANS last week.  Busy avoiding DARKLINGS?  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  LARIS TYL ZORA take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in DAYLA KIV.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
