                             Notes from the arena champ.

A light workout with a stand-in, and back on top of the scratch post, looking out at 
all, surveying my domain.  No conspicuous opponents this turn, so unless a tourney-guy 
springs out at me from behind the sofa, I'll be fighting another stand-in this go 
'round, too.  That's fine with me, as long as I stay alive I should be getting my 
invitation this turn, and then I'm done with the fight game.

Now, I'm going to find a fencepost, pounce on top of it, and serenade Dayla Kiv. 
That's what we cats do.  Serenade, keeping people awake at night.  That's why everyone 
loves cats, and me, the were-jaguar of Dayla Kiv. 

                                          -- Regalus Fury,
                                             the Champion of Dayla Kiv
                                             and the Katzenjammer of Nine Lives Matter 

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
DAYLA KIV brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see TANE win a fight and gain 11 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, STREET 
SWEEPER beat PELDAN DJIAN and PELDAN DJIAN lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart. 
And if variety is the spice of life, DAYLA KIV may be getting bland, as REGALUS FURY 
stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling 
you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, DAYLA KIV?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for DAYLA KIV's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in DAYLA KIV to get a drink than The Crystal 
Wheel!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of DAYLA KIV.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Komar the Penniless -- What, still no weapon, my friend?  If I were to put some gold 
coins in your hand would you at least buy a dagger?  It doesn't have to be a nice 
dagger, a rusty one will do, or maybe some brass knuckles?  Something. Get something. 
-- R. Fury

Traveling Tinker -- Have you ever been to Khalhums?  There's a dwarf there you bear a 
striking resemblance to. -- J. Fair

Komar the Penniless -- It's a bad day when, after taking a beating from one gladiator, 
they ask you to get back out there and fight another. -- E. Impact

Red Kogan -- At least you didn't cuss during the fight this time, although you may 
have felt better if you had. -- Tane 

Peldan Djian -- Oy.  What was I doing with that weapon?  Nice job, sir. -- S. Horror  

Baikal s'Kren -- You're on.  If my math is correct (and barring me getting killed), I 
should get my invite this turn.  Another fortnight here, and I'll join you by the 
fishing hole.  I like fish; it's the cat in me. -- R. Fury 

Tane -- I was supposed to write you a meaty personal, I was thinking maybe ham, but my 
fingers are too cold this evening.  Jorja says it's "too early" to start the furnace.  
Bah. -- Red Kogan, who would rather be a hot house flower

You Dirty Ruffian!  I'm going to round up some friends and mug you in an alley. -- 
Tiogan Crow

Shewish Horror -- Stout fellow!  Let me buy you a beer! -- Peldan Djian

Tiogan -- (smugly)  I can handle a Dirty Ruffian, once he washes up. -- Ardia Li

Ardia -- Insufferable wench. -- Tiogan

Ha!  Let him cringe! -- Krenshew, pleased with his victory over the Cringing Cutpurse

Regulus Fury -- You call that humor?  As soon as my broken claw grows back, I'll show 
you humor. -- Hanval the Claw

Jakarta Fair -- A tempting invitation.  Especially if there's something good to dip 
the breadsticks in. -- Madame U Tana

Tane -- Ah, that Street Sweeper!  Don't mind him, he does the best he can.  But I 
could give you a real match. -- Khad'drakh'n'dhaz of Khra, known as the Traveling 
Tinker, maker of superb blades
