                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hanval the Claw again, and another victory, but it didn't come without a raised 
eyebrow or two.  Hanval can take quite a beating it seems, and keep coming back for 
more.  I didn't remember that about him in our previous bouts.  His scar tissue has 
toughened, and is now hard to penetrate, or so it seems. 
     Hmm... not sure who may rise out of the pool below me to offer a challenge.  A 
couple of inactive tourney types and a teammate.  Tane is out, of course, so it could 
very well be another stand-in the Commission throws at me.  Perhaps it shall be Hanval 
the Claw for a third turn in a row.  We'll see; it matters not to me, for I am--

                                             Champion of Dayla Kiv 

                                      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.  My praise to SAND DANCERS for their 
5-0-1 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  ZED 'MIA'S SON' caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested PERRO MASON and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, RAVANA put down SHEWISH HORROR, causing him to lose 7 
points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has JAKARTA FAIR 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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  ARGONAUTS is feared.  This much I 
can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of LAW DOGS last week.  Busy avoiding ARGONAUTS?  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  RAVANA take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in DAYLA KIV.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in DAYLA KIV.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a 
turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its 
prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
