                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

She's a breath under six feet in height, and about 40-ish in years (but she'll tell 
you she's 29), this woman that stands in front of the podium.  She wears a long dress 
of white accompanied by a navy-blue cloak stretched across her shoulders.  Her hair is 
long, straight, auburn. The eyes are dark.  She has the mien of someone who isn't 
given to much laughter or frivolity.  Her smile is economical, measured. 

"Good afternoon, everyone. I will keep this brief.  The Argonauts' 500+ fights occured 
over a stretch of six years in the Andorian capital city of Andor, a city whose arena 
is now closed.  That was... more years ago than I care to tally, and while the hair 
now has some rather garish streaks of gray coursing through it, and some wisdom-lines 
have sprouted around the eyes, I still recall, or at least I think I do, how to manage 
a stable of gladiators.  After much thought I've decided to relocate the team here, in 
a region known for its martial arts traditions. 

"I am Medea.  I manage the Argonauts.  It's my pleasure to be, at long last, in the 
great Empire of Lirith Kai, in the beautiful city of Dayla Kiv!  

"Good luck to you all.  May your swords always dance like angry lightning and may your 
blunt weapons always rise and fall with horse-felling power... except when we meet.  
Good day."

She exits to the left, where she's met by an odd little man in a yellow suit, hair the 
color of azure, and a bow tie that matches the color of his hair--a Commission 
representative.  Words are exchanged.  They don't seem pleasant.  

The podium is abandoned, yet remains eerily lit in somber gray by a single overhead 
source of light. 

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DAYLA KIV games.  SERGEANT 4 caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ELON LI and was awarded 16 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SERGEANT 4 put down ELON 
LI, causing her to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
CUDA in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his 
combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DAYLA KIV "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in DAYLA KIV these days is MEDAL OF HONOR.  At least, most blades in town are looking 
to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of SATAN'S SELF HELP last week.  Busy avoiding MEDAL OF HONOR?  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  RED KOGAN take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in DAYLA KIV.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Walk proud, warriors of MEDAL OF HONOR!  By striking down ELON LI 
you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known to all in DAYLA KIV.  
Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a 
dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Dangerous Bon Lokar -- You showed great intestinal fortitude and determination.  In 
the future, it would be appreciated if you showed much less.  Thank you. -- Erebus 
Impact

Do you ever get the feeling gladiators are named after race horses?

Peldan Djian -- Good job.  I doubt it matters, but just in case it does, one weapon 
against light armor, another against medium, a third for heavy armor with a back-up 
dagger, and all I get is a dagger with no back-up.  C'mon, Commission.  That's a fine 
'Welcome Back.' -- Tane the left-handed Dwarf of the Not-So-Natty-Beard 

     Tane -- The snivelling lackey that caused this has been slapped with a wet 
     noodle.  Apologies. -- Supervisor A-3B

Ghost of Sergeant 1 -- My sincere apologies. -- Elon Li

Two-three-one, a strange day for us.  I would never have guessed Elon Li had that in 
her. -- Baikal s'Kren
