                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Some days are like that, Dienekes, and I can't regret the win.  As if!  And my
thanks for the skills.  Hmm, a minute ago, I thought of something else to say, but it
went straight out of my head.  Must not have been important, or if it is, it'll come
back.  Ah!  That you needed the loss.  Perfect records can get you into SOOO much
trouble, you can't imagine.  Managers expect too much of gladiators with perfect
records, they get them to a tourney, see a normal performance instead of a stellar
one, and it's off to the Dark Arena.  Trust me, you needed that loss.

                                      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.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SAND DANCERS is pushed out of top team by GATES OF FIRE, who came from 
2nd with a 4-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, ALEXANDROS fought DANGEROUS BON LOKAR and 
gained 17 points and contributed to GATES OF FIRE's 4-0-0.  HESTI TYL VAREN has lost 
to SPARTAN 1, falling 1 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 1-4-0 turn.  Our 
last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to PELIS THE OLD, and TERREINE TYL TAHL 
has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With TERREINE TYL TAHL clearing the throne, 
GATES OF FIRE of ALEXANDROS takes a proud seat as DAYLA KIV's new Duelmaster, by 
virtue of recognition points.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last 
night, cramped under the table at The Crystal Wheel?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.  Is it really true that DAYLA KIV 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in DAYLA KIV again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
