     Listen, warriors and managers of Andorak!  Go out and recruit.  Other arenas are
laughing at us.  Ah, the personal and subscribers of other arenas are laughing, but I
wouldn't put it past the mages here on the Isle to arrange for the arenas to laugh
too!  They'd think it was funny.
     We had eight fights, no challenges, no avoids, and two standbys.  Saturn gained
25 points, Evening Star lost 13, different fights.

     SATURN (41-3990) (21-81-0,63) of WANDERERS fought TARIN SHARPEYES (105-3) (0-0-
0,100) of The Usual Guys.  SATURN won victory over TARIN SHARPEYES in a popular 3
minute duel.  Almost impressive.
     BEAULIEU (41-3057) (38-28-0,147) of WRATHMEN fought GYPSY JOE (41-3694) (29-29-
0,113) of WANDERERS.  BEAULIEU overcame GYPSY JOE in an action packed 1 minute melee.
Gotta watch those gypsies, you never know what they might be up to.
     KHYLAR (36-4613) (39-20-0,175) of WRATHMEN fought FLUTTERLEE (41-4153) (25-44-
0,175) of WANDERERS.  KHYLAR overpowered FLUTTERLEE in a popular 1 minute mismatched
brawl.  Everyone does this.
     KHEDRYN (24-3955) (27-6-1,162) of WRATHMEN fought NATHANIEL G (20-3511) (24-22-
1,118) of WEEKEND WARRIORS.  KHEDRYN devastated NATHANIEL G in a popular 1 minute
bloody uneven brawl.  Not a weekend, so Nathaniel was handicapped.
     KIANA (24-3878) (35-32-0,200) of WRATHMEN fought MARS (41-3989) (35-22-0,166) of
WANDERERS.  KIANA overpowered MARS in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  Not surprising.
     OHMYGOD (63-2147) (39-14-1,203) of WRATHMEN fought MASKED GUILDMASTER (105-6)
(0-0-0,201) of The Usual Guys.  OHMYGOD was viciously subdued by MASKED GUILDMASTER
in a 2 minute bloody brawl.  Oops!
     KENWYD (57-3870) (71-62-2,199) of WRATHMEN fought EVENING STAR (60-8819) (26-16-
0,205) of SUPERIOR FORCES 60.  KENWYD demolished EVENING STAR in a popular 1 minute
one-sided melee.  Good work.  The uppity youngsters need to be kept under a few
thumbs.

For the title:
     GORDIAN (63-2104) (105-89-0,228) of WHY KNOT fought BERWYN (68-5897) (44-31-
0,211) of DRATHANEANS.  GORDIAN viciously subdued BERWYN in a crowd pleasing 2 minute
gruesome Title fight.  No one has untied Gordian yet, so... congratulations.

     Zeb Karan around the big table.  Arena staff of all ranks and titles sat and 
stared at each other:  arenamasters, standbys, Dark Arena warriors, stewards and 
infirmarians, even the maintenance crew.  This was not the first time they'd met like 
this, and it probably wouldn't be the last.
     "So this is it again, is it?" Lew Voth asked.  "Less than seven years since they 
closed Dwes Eg to new teams, and now they're closing Blackstone?"
     "Only to new teams," one of the spymasters pointed out.  "And it's necessary.  
There are several file rooms we haven't been able to enter in months because they're 
too full of team records."
     "Nothing you couldn't fix with a lighted match," Jame Rinvar suggested.  
Technically he should not have been there, since he'd taken over full time as the 
arenamaster of Shadowspire.  But no one wanted to tell him to leave.
     "We may NEED those records one of these days," Chief Steward Hesselrod protested.  
"We can't burn RECORDS."
     "I could," Rinvar said.
     "But you won't."  Voth pinned him with a stare.  "Don't stir up trouble for its 
own sake, Jame."
     Rinvar raised his hand in a gesture of surrender.  "I'll be good, Lew."
     "When are they shutting down Blackstone?"
     "To new teams only, remember--the old ones will keep fighting if their managers 
want to pay the fees.  This week.  Maybe next week.  Hard to be sure, when you travel 
from Alastari to anywhere else, there's a time distortion effect.  But probably this 
week.  Same operating rules as Dwes Eg (82):  no new teams in, but the old ones can 
recruit new members.  New teams will go to the new place--"  Zeb Karan cast a look of 
enquiry around the room.
     "Jasper Gulch," a steward said.
     "Right.  New teams will go to Jasper Gulch.  I'm not sure the day for it, probably 
'opposite' Blackstone in the schedule.  A regular two-week cycle.  Teams can be 
transfered in from regular arenas, I suppose, but not OUT."
     Voth nodded.  "We can work with this."
     "Beats not working."
