                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A true champion holds the title of Duelmaster for more than a turn or two before 
running off to some strange island in some strange land run by some strange person.  
He brings stability to the city and to his arena and grows fans and support for the 
sport he represents.  He relishes his victories and wears the crown of 'Champion' with 
pride.  This I have done for four turns in a row and I have not wearied of it.  Dayla 
Kiv, I am your champion.  You are my people. 
     For the curious, I have enough wins to graduate, I have the necessary political 
connections to graduate, the only thing I lack, according to my lovely and talented 
manager, Medea (she wanted me to say that) is to demonstrate more skill, if you will, 
in combat.  My skill is represented by my 17-3 record, I say, and by my defense of the 
title for three consecutive turns defeating the best fighters each fortnight.  Bah to 
the Commission, they know not what they think they know. 
     I see a young upstart has now entered the realm of challengers.  Medea tells me 
he could beat me.  Who knows how many hidden FE these cheaters have when they come 
into the arena?  I dare not taint my reputation and name by fighting in some dirty 
tournament somewhere.  Don't hide your fights, my people.  Cleanse yourself of your 
impurities and come clean with your record, as my sword cleanses you of your martial 
imperfections.  Do not cheat.  Do not fight in tournaments. 

                                    -- Shewish Horror
                                       Duelmaster of Dayla Kiv 604, 605, 606, 607... ? 

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DAYLA KIV?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see PARSIFAL MOSAIC win a fight and gain 27 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, PARSIFAL 
MOSAIC beat KRENSHEW and KRENSHEW lost 25 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as RED KOGAN takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Crystal Wheel, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From DAYLA KIV's trash 
dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  DARK MINIONS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like ARGONAUTS avoided them the most this 
turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the DAYLA KIV arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Ardia Li -- At least it was short. It wasn't short and sweet, just short, and for that 
I am thankful. -- P. Mosaic

Red Kogan -- As usual, it's tough to bring you down. -- S. Horror

Street Sweeper -- It must be hard fighting with that broom. Easy for me, tough for 
you. -- Dissident

Rornis the Dark -- I hope they paid you double for fighting twice this week. Thanks 
for the wins. You could be a better teacher. -- Mirabile Dictu and Slumming Duchess 

Jorja and the Sand Dancers -- No time for personals? One must make time for what one 
enjoys! ... Ah, I get you. Nevermind. -- Argonauts 

Huh, three-two, but two of the wins were over standbys.  Just as well we couldn't do 
personals last time. -- Ardia Li

Jack McChow -- Bad dog! -- Krenshew

Parsifal Mosaic -- You're a good boy. -- Ardia Li

Shewish Horror -- Truly horrible. -- Red Kogan

And one-one against standbys.  Embarrassing.
