                          a Celebration of the New Charter

     Tonight there was a celebration at an undisclosed Dwarven tavern... one of those
hole-in-the-wall types of places wehre one wants to sit back and have some drinks
after a hard day of mining in the caves of the Daggerspine Mountains, to enjoy the
long hard work of one's abitly to still... well... work.
     Tonight there were more than just Dwarves here... there were some gladiators
frequenting the joint.  Two team actually, the first team was team Stormblades, with
their manager known only as the tough-as-nails lady Avengen Kale... with her
warriors:  Rolayt Mit, Nix Blackheart, and a mysterious character by the name of
Heshon Somni.  Those three seemed to drink a little more than normal tonight... not
in celebration of team Sovereign's new Charter, but more because of the tragic
passings of Nissa Breeze and Reverant... two fearsome warriors who died earlier that
day on the sands.

     Now, we take a closer look on the gladiators of team The Sovereign... of the
warriors that had survived this long to make the charter possible for the team...
     Sitting at a well-clutter, stein-littered table chatting with Rolayt Mit himself
was a half-Dwarf by the name of Ike Nightshield wearing his traditional black vest
and cloak, with wideset and a little too baggy pants, with the oddest of boots... a
gift from Lord Scorpio; he once said that the boots were the choice of boots by his
country's military back where he came from, so Ike wore them proudly and fought in
them even more proudly... for the team.  An honorable half-Dwarf he was, as he
commended each challenger and fought with the same respect as if he were fighting his
own brother back home in the far North.  A well braided long black beard he had with
the braided beard ending in a clasp with the symbol of Gurtarg... the deity in these
parts and a common Dwarven god.
     Next, the newest member and a rather interesting fellow, his name was Marcus
Sky... but were he came from he was a Lord of sorts, you see.  Marcus Sky was no
longer amongst the living... for many a year ago as he was making his long
adventuring trek to Alastari from his home kingdon of Ferencia... Marcus was attacked
and his life, I should say, has never been the same... for after that night he was
transformed into a Vampire!!  Now he wanders at night (preferably) and feasts on his
favorite diet of blood...but he still loves to see blood so much that he come to
Scorpio to fight just so he might have a taste of the deceased (sorry, Reerant).  At
5'9', he is a regal fellow... with the mark of "old money" all over him, yet while he
prefers to dress in nobles' attire... he bears a very old and archaic looking epee.
"Twas a gift from Scorpio," he'l tell any who ask, but I think Scorpio knows more
about the old relic than anyone else, for the way Marcus fights when wielding it...
     Sitting at the bar next to a very beautiful woman was none other than the
Amazonian Zarlan that would be Jade.  Her single black braid ran down to her lower
back as she prefered to wear little bells in her hair, painted nails, and scents on
her smell ravishing.  She wore tight leather of black that accentuate her womanly
curves and prefered to wear loose fitting long sleeved shirts (to hide the scars),
but I think to hide the very cut and veined muscles that she had grown over her years
of fighting.  She had a very beautiful dagger at her side with a red ruby in the
hilt... there was old writing on the blade but she won't tell you what it means
(family heirloom).  She drank whiskey and had no problem wanting to pick fights with
the Dwarves.  She is 6'4"... so I don't blame her arrogance. *smiles*
     Sitting beside Jade, was a beautiful Convincian... she seemed to be sipping on
some wine.  She exhaled some of the smoke from the long cigarillo-like object that
Scorpio got for her, for that was why she was called Long-N-Slim, because the
cigarette-type things that she smoked were all long and slim.  Long-N-Slim liked to
fight hard during the day and relax during the nights at the bars of Rodeki.  Two
beautiful broadswords she carries "X-ed" across her back, and very tight and
revealing leather pants and a vest-like shirt with no sleeves, she wore stilletto
type boots, but moved very gracefully.  Standing at 5'10", with long straight honey
colored hair and the most crystal blue eyes anyone has ever seen, she was a daughter
of a prominent cobbler and had moved on to become a gladiator.  She turned and smiled
at Scorpio who raised a glass to her and drank.
     As Scorpio finished his drink the very light blue skinned woman beside him
whispered something into his ear.  This woman wasn't your regular human, for at 5'10"
with the prettiest of white hair and light blue eyes, with a skin as cool to the
touch... Blue Smoke was a Northwight, a crature of the furthest reaches of the North.
She was chosen first by Scorpio to join the new team.  Wearing a brown short leather
skirt with Spartan-like sandals... leather straps climbing up her legs and a
sleeveless, tunic-like shirt she is a formidible warriors.  She was just given an
impressive looking set of short spears earlier for her boss, she exhales a very cold
mist into Scorpio's ear, bringing a smile from ear to ear.  She leaves and lastly,
there stands Lord Scorpio...
     At 6'8" this "Kraellian-looking" human stood tall and proud.  With one-too-many,
which could be seen from a mile away, he smiled at his team.  Wearing a very odd set
of clothing, it was ovbious that Scoripio wasn't from the world known as Ghea, for
his pants were close fitting, tan in color with "pockets" on the sides of the legs, I
believe he used the word "cargo" or something close with boots that look just as
exotic... similar to Ike's but with a yellow thread that surrounds the soles of his
boots.  "Doc something or the other" he's said, and the burnt orange short sleeved
shirt he wears with an outline of a bull and the word that was in another language...
when asked he says "Longhorts"... makes sense I guess.  *smile*   Tattoos fill his
arms, as I've seen his torso during training sessions with his warriors... tribal
work and words I can't decipher.. he wore a couple of rings on his pinkies and had on
a unique bracelet... seemed to be made of silver or platinum... when I ask him about
the object, he never tells.  All he's said was "my key to the house", which I make it
out to him speaking in riddles again.  Close cut black hair on his head and jade
green eyes fill his muscular frame, while a well tanned olive complexion defends him
from the repressive summer here in Rodeki.  He raised his almost empty glass in the
bar and said, "Thank you to everyone today for the honor of becoming Chartered, I
plan on being here awhile and making a name for myself and my team", lastly with a
mournful look towards Avengen Kale... he said, "for Nissa and Revenant... Hear Hear."

not.  To reciprocate for telling you all not to challenge me I made no challenges

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of RODEKI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  52 PICK UP caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and was awarded 24 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, IKE NIGHTSHIELD put 
down PAN, causing her to lose 17 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has 21 in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women 
in RODEKI seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  RODEKI, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is STORMBLADES, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding STORMBLADES.  Indeed it was THE 
SOVEREIGN.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the 
knowledge that many fighters are after SILVER LADY.  Watch your back!  A match that 
raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that BLUE SMOKE posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized ROCKSNAIL.  The results, you ask?  Well, 
the firebrand BLUE SMOKE lost to ROCKSNAIL.  Remember warriors, this is the 
discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Walk proud, warriors of STORMBLADES!  By striking down LORD MARCUS 
SKY you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known to all in RODEKI.  
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 RODEKI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Forgive me? -- Scorpio

Angengen Kale -- Tonight, at the dreadful Dwarven Tavern, a little party is being
thrown in celebration of my becoming chartered in Rodeki; how 'bout you come as my
