                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm not sure what, exactly, the Traveling Tinker gifted me with.  Probably the
political points.

                                  Kolban ten Tahl

                                      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, WYCHWOOD fought CRINGING 
CUTPURSE and gained 13 points and contributed to INSIGNIFICANCE's 1-3-0.  MORO TEN 
ZORA has lost to HANVAL THE CLAW, falling 16 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS 
a 1-4-0 turn.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to TRAVELING TINKER, 
and KOLBAN TEN TAHL has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With KOLBAN TEN TAHL 
clearing the throne, SAND DANCERS of DOLBY KLEE takes a proud seat as DAYLA KIV's new 
Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Crystal Wheel uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is 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.   
     I like this place, DAYLA KIV, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in DAYLA KIV, but never good to 
wear out my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my 
pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Oh, heck.  I just didn't feel like fighting, okay?  Especially not with Madame U-
Tana.  She's a very, um, forceful woman. -- Dolby Klee

Why should I have to fight Hanval the Claw?  He's a long-standing acquaintance,
practically a friend!  This arena is too small. -- Moko ten Zora

Komar the Penniless should go to Alastari and teach Kung-Fu or something.  He might
make a few pennies. -- Moro ten Zora

I feel no more sympathy for Komar the Penniless than Moro did, maybe less!  What's
the big deal about being penniless?  We all go through that from time to time. --
Lirini tyl Varin

Ruby Tuesday to the Dark Arena?  Why? -- Jorja
P.S.  Yes, I see that her tourney performance was very bad, but she was doing okay in
the regular arena.  Of course, in a two-team arena, "doing okay" may not mean much.

We salute the gladiators who participated in the tourney, with a special
congratulations for Max Factor, tourney victor. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers
