                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Okay, so Orange defeated me on his way out.  Ask me if I care, because *I* am on
my way out now, too.  I figure it was the rating I got in that fight that tipped me
over.

                                       Gorble

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in DAYLA KIV a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor. 
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as NUMB-ERS is pushed out of top team by SAND DANCERS, who came from 2nd 
with a 5-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, SPIDERPIG fought DANGEROUS BON LOKAR and 
gained 18 points and contributed to HOMER'S PETS' 1-0-0.  867-5309 has lost to 
KHARHOVAN TEN SIU, falling 11 points, while helping make NUMB-ERS a 0-3-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and GORBLE remains DAYLA KIV's top 
warrior for another turn.  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.   
     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.  Kudos go out to GORBLE this turn, 
for revenging SAND DANCERS' bloodfeud against NUMB-ERS' warrior NEGATIVE ONE.  Well 
done.  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?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in DAYLA KIV and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen 
sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
