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 DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME VORGAN TEN TALH 4093 16 9 0 80 SAND DANCERS (251) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME FASE 4111 5 0 0 49 ERRATA (507) -MILKSHAKE 4110 5 1 0 46 ERRATA (507) TOYOTA 4115 5 0 2 41 CORPS (346) DOLBY KLEE 4103 9 11 0 38 SAND DANCERS (251) CHALLENGER INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME GENERAL MILLS 4123 3 0 0 26 CORPS (346) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME KIRSSARINA 4114 3 11 0 20 SAND DANCERS (251) -WHIRLPOOL 4131 2 0 0 20 CORPS (346) SHADY 4130 1 0 0 16 ERRATA (507) SCHWINN 4132 1 0 0 10 CORPS (346) OVA 4109 0 1 0 7 ERRATA (507) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn.
