     Well, what are you looking at, DAYLA KIV?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, SAND DANCERS, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see PELDAN DJIAN win a fight and gain 13 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, PELDAN DJIAN beat DISSIDENT and DISSIDENT lost 8 points. 
You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as SHEWISH 
HORROR 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.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  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

Shewish Horror -- But in return, I invite you to come by our place and have french-
fried onion rings. -- Red Kogan

Parsifal Mosaic -- Seems like some kind of plant disease to me.  Should we allow this? 
-- Krenshew

Dissident -- Um, you're a tall one, aren't you?  Intimidating. -- Peldan Djian

And two losses to standbys.  Oog.

Our heartfelt congratulations to the Shewish Horror. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

Argonauts -- Couldn't do it.  Over our heads.  Jorja promised to loan her hands to the 
tourney spy report, and there's no appeal from that. -- the Sand Dancers

SHEWISH HORROR (74-4586) ARGONAUTS (542)

  Armsilbar liked being Master of the Stronghold Academy, all except for one part.

He had to talk to Sheila Greywand at least once a week, usually oftener.  She was 
getting more erratic.  More chaotic.  That would be the effect of the Grey Wand.  It 
was a powerful chaotic artifact, and she kept it with her always.  She had turned his 
predecessor into a frog--or 164 frogs--and then summoned all the members of the 
Academy to a frog-leg dinner.  That had been, ah, bad.  Yes, very bad.
     But here he was entering her chambers.  With, well, it couldn't be called GOOD 
news.  And the look she turned on him--she was in an orcish mood today, all scowling 
black brows and bared fangs--that made him nervous.  But some things had to be done.  
He cleared his throat, which seemed to have a frog in it, and said, "It's about the 
next tourney prize, Lady.  I know it's more than two months away, but this isn't too 
soon to start thinking of some new, exciting prize--"
     "I have no intention of thinking about 'new, exciting prizes'," she snapped.  Or 
was that a snarl?  "These managers are getting above themselves.  They act like I 
created the arena system for their amusement!  There will be one standard prize for 
all the tourneys.  Just one."
     He had a horrible vision of all the managers walking out in a mass.  Perhaps it 
wouldn't be that bad, but it wouldn't be good.  And if he said the wrong thing, well, 
the next frog-leg dinner might be him. "Er, ah, perhaps a specific prize for each 
tourney--a spring prize, a summer prize, and so on?  The managers expect--"
     She exploded.  A literal explosion, the force of the blast blew his hair off.  
She said several things in an obsolete dialect of orcish.  He stepped backward, then 
again.  The blast had blown the door open behind him.  If he could make it out before 
something else happened--
     "Ribbit!  Ribbit!"
