Old Valamantis and away:

     Smeds and Shamu didn't wait for the others to solve THEIR problems, they set out
for the mountains and Khalhums, by way of Mordant and Caer, hitching a ride on a
wagon full of tanned hides.
     Shamu sprawled on the pile of leather and grimaced as the wagon jolted into and
out of a pothole.  Both Dwarves bounced and rolled.  "This is just about
     "It could be worse," Smeds offered.  "They could be GREEN hides instead of
tanned ones!"
     "Yuck," the Cliffhomer said absently.  "But that wasn't what I meant--the road.
How can we expect to send dozens, maybe even scores of wagons over a road like this?
They'd be shaken to bits if they hurried, and the ice would melt if they didn't."
     "These are the roads we've got to work with," Smeds answered.  "And they aren't
THAT bad."  An especially deep set of ruts sent them bounding wildly over the back of
the wagon.  "Okay, maybe they ARE that bad, but they're STILL the roads we have to
work with."  He was silent for a moment, then shrugged--and grabbed for the side of
the wagon as it rocked and tilted over more ruts.  "This wouldn't be so bad if we
hadn't had two weeks of rain to make really big muddy ruts, and then a couple of
months dry, you know.  Maybe if it rains again--"
     "Oh, joy, wagons stuck in the mud from Khalhums to Valamantis."  Shamu frowned
at the road and at the forest passing on the left (the Feyranse River was on the
right).  There was nothing like a technical problem to get a Dwarf thinking.  "We
need to corduroy the road.  There are trees enough.  Organize parties to work out of
Mordant in both directions, and the road might be passable by the time the ice wagons
are coming down."
     "A corduroy road won't last," Smeds warned, "not where the ground's as wet as it
is here.  The logs will rot."
     "It'll last all summer, at least, and that's all we need.  If we haven't gotten
enough cold water to Old Valamantis to wash out those bloodstains by then, we're
going to be in too much trouble to worry about the road."
     Smeds sighed and then laughed.  "I can't BELIEVE we're taking Debby Tonte's
advice on this!"
     "Well, nobody else had any suggestions at all."

     Nobody paid attention to them when they entered the resurrected city of Old
Valamantis, but that wasn't reassuring.  There were a lot of people around, more than
they'd expected, and somebody SHOULD be paying attention.
     "It's a trap," Ka D'Argo muttered.  "They know something we don't.  Something
that means we're walking right into the frying pan."
     "So what?" Goblin asked.  "We know something THEY don't, too.  Something that
means anybody who attacks US is in for a really big surprise."  The Kaltosian
gladiator fingered his sword and bared his pointed teeth in a hungry grin.  "I hope
they start something SOON."
     "I don't," Sputter grumbled.  "Better to put off till tomorrow the blows you can
avoid today.  And spells are even worse."
     "They won't attack us until we get near the arena," Tensekai said.  The Silver
Mage squinted at the sky, which was a dome of glaring white haze, and then at the
battered wall of the Bloodgames arena looming over the lesser structures a mile away.
"Okay, they might attack physically before then, but...I think they'd rather have our
blood spilled close to the center of their spell-working."
     "So our blood can feed their spells, too?  Great, just great.  What I always
wanted to do," Lavender Lance said.  She sighed heavily.  "And I'm SURE they won't
appreciate us properly."  She drew herself up into a stance that had made more than
one male gladiator falter at the wrong moment as pearly flesh strained against violet
lace.  "I've heard that wizards are BLIND to the finer nuances."
     Tensekai coughed and wrenched his gaze away, blushing.  "Not all of us," he said
in a strangled voice.  "Not...BLIND, anyway."

     "I really don't think we should be doing this," Alta Chess muttered.  She looked
back over her shoulder at the patchwork wall of modern Valamantis longingly.  "I
don't WANT to be doing this...."
     "Nonsense!  Don't be such a coward, Alta," Chip Enser said.  "This is ADVENTURE.
Things are HAPPENING in Old Valamantis.  Do you want to be nothing more than a
     "Wizard things," his teammate countered.  "And what do we know about wizard
stuff?  Yeah, I'd lots rather be just a spectator.  Lots rather."
     "There's gladiators involved in this; it isn't ALL wizards.  And not all of them
are Lord Protectors, either."  Chip sighed ostentatiously.  "I suppose I couldn't
expect better from a GIRL.  But we can at least get close enough to WATCH, can't we?"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for NIANIA.  MVP award for ANALIRA?  THE 
GOLDEN FISH's proud of her after beating BETTY and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer 
big time losers!  BETTY got smashed by ANALIRA, and lost 39 points!  This Duelmaster 
is like something else!  TOOFLESS stopped JARCK dead in hers tracks!  I hear the top 
team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters 
for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  RESURRECTION was NIANIA's most avoided team.  Is there some award 
for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are GLORY BOUND TROLLS?  RESURRECTION, an 
easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can 
GLORY BOUND TROLLS' OOZE-O be more popular than me?  It was challenged the most, but 
is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  NIANIA is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

fight on your part.  It was probably rather like shooting fish in a barrel. -- Yellow

P.S.  I see you are graduating!  Congratulations.

M. Chardinee?  Pooh.  If the arenamaster hadn't stopped me, he would be Dead

Prowess -- Ah, that impressive prow!  Females do it so much better. -- Lubaya

These Dangerous Criminals are a disgrace.  Fishbait, every one. -- Nellistha

One Brow -- Congrats to you. With your record, you are a fine troll indeed.  Good
fights.   Hopefully I will get my second warrior to ADM one day.  I procrastinate a
lot. -- The Ice Man, mgr. Big Country

All -- I am back for this turn.  I don't know how long my team will fight though.
Most of warriors can only fight one or two fights and then make to stop for reasons
of tourney. -- Big Country

Ed. -- Can you give me a list of managers that are active in DM 2?  Thank you. -- Big

     This is teams that were listed in last turn's newsletter.  If I've gotten

                             Death Fest Begins July 29/DM 59 T-172

     "You drive a hard bargain Hammer," responded Lord Lian Ki Na-Sul, "but the
Gladiatorial Commission has agreed to re-open DM 58 Delarq Tor as a Slow Arena
exclusively for a period of six months to those Death Fest contestants who fight
their stables at least 67 times out of a possible 75 during the 15 rounds of Death
Fest; on the condition that at least 20 stables qualify for the Illis Iron Stable
Award at the conclusion of the Death Fest and those qualifying managers send a New
Stable to DM 58 Delarq Tor without Cannibalizing their participation in the other
arenas where they have active stables!"
     Hammer felt a certain sense of satisfaction as he studied the ghoulish grin
spreading across the face of Lord Lian Ki Na-Sul; proud Arena Master of the once
dying Illis Arena, as the DM 59 Arena Authority signed the Gladiatorial Commission
papers authenticating the arrangement agreed upon by the two parties presiding.
     "You and the Gladiatorial Commission also drive a hard bargain," Hammer replied
as he reflected upon the prospects of Delarq Tor DM 58 being re-opened as a Slow
Arena with at least 20 New Stables by the Managers who fight their stables at least
67 times out of a possible 75 during the 15 rounds of Death Fest. "I also notice the
clause that for Delarq Tor to be open Exclusively for 6 months to the New Stables
managed by the Illis Iron Stable Award Winners that there must be at least 15 stables
Active each cycle. That is a fair bargain for the opportunity to battle for the
Duelmaster Throne each of those six months before Other New Stables are allowed to
enter Delarq Tor."
     This was a Golden Opportunity for both Veteran and Newbie Managers to pave a new
frontier of Delarq history by qualifying their Death Fest stables in DM 59 with 67
fights out of a possible 75; then for the price of running a stable in a Regular
Arena, continuing to be Active in DM 59 and sending a New Team Roll Up to be a part
of "History in the Making" when Delarq Tor would re-open for its First Turn as a Slow
Arena on November 3rd, 2005.
     Death Fest would conclude on T-186 August 25th, 2005 allowing the Illis Iron
Stable Award Winners enough time to be registered with the Gladiatorial Commission;
whereupon they would be able to submit a New Team Roll Up to the GC to start a New
Stable in Delarq Tor; be able to fight those New Gladiators in the Rookies 2005 Fall
Mailer Tourney; then begin competing for the DM 58 Duelmasters Throne in Delarq Tor
right out of the gate with the November 3rd 2005 T-1 Debut Opening Round.
     Hammer of the First Part had also negotiated with Lord Na-Zul of the Second Part
an agreement that All 10 Dark Arena Monsters and 17 NPCs Characters be re-named by
the Top Ten Death Fest Finishers. [See DM 59 T-171 Newsletter Team Spotlight by
Hammer for the complete listing of Dark Arena Monsters/NPCs and the Official Death
Fest Designation for which Top Ten Finishers re-name which characters!]
     Lord Na-Sul could not hide his delight at the prospects of Death being re-
delivered to his once dying arena during the Delarq Death Fest; the DM 59 Arena
Master agreed that these Death Fest Prizes were but a Small Exchange in Comparison to
the Profits to be made by the local Illis business merchants and surrounding
community from the Anticipated Influx into Illis by the Veteran and Newbie
Managers/Gladiators/Stables seeking to make History in the Delarq Death Fest.
     Nor could Hammer conceal his jubilation regarding the Call Across Alistari being
Answered to Cross Blades and Match Wits with the Devious, the Diabolical, the
Dangerous and the Down Challenging who were being drawn to the Delarq Death Fest to
Fulfill their Delarq Dueling Destiny!
