                             Notes from the arena champ.

     We couldn't have a penniless duelmaster, or how could he stand everyone drinks?
Not that I want to stand everyone drinks, either, but I know my duty and thank Mantor
that "everyone" isn't a large number here.  One drink each at the Crystal Wheel.

                                      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, ALEXANDROS fought LALVO OF 
THE PEN and gained 20 points and contributed to GATES OF FIRE's 4-0-0.  HESTI TYL 
VAREN has lost to SPARTAN 1, falling 6 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 
3-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, MOKO TEN ZORA kept DAYLA KIV's 
warrior, HANVAL THE CLAW, 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!   
     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.  Is it really true that DAYLA KIV has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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 you see my quill in DAYLA 
KIV again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
