                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, I got to bury Dangerous Bon Lokar in the sand to receive the title.  Like
there was anyone else who noticed that it was available.

                                  Vorgan ten Talh

                                      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.  And let's see, GENERAL MILLS fought 
KIRSSARINA and gained 16 points and contributed to CORPS' 3-0-1.  KIRSSARINA has lost 
to GENERAL MILLS, falling 12 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 1-2-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, VORGAN TEN TALH kept DAYLA KIV's warrior, 
MADAME U-TANA, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard 
from unimpeachable sources that The Crystal Wheel uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  TOYOTA must have surprised CORPS 
this turn, after they sent him to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't hold 
him!  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide 
when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, DAYLA KIV, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet 
again, keep your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and 
my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
