                             Another Day at the Office

     A stocky, scarred, and silent man stood atop the stone retaining wall and glared
fiercely into a wide, shallow, circular pit.  A meter below, and roughly 5 meters
away, two fighters, a golem and a Kannar, grunted and shuffled in ankle-deep sand.
Their padded leather was generally stained with sweat and the occasional ominous
streak of dried blood.  Their faces wore a sheen of tired determination inside their
dented helms.  Their broadswords, carved from some dark, dense wood, clacked and
clashed against each other as the warriors practiced their carefully choreographed
     At one point the fighters' swords crossed and grated against each other as the
warriors struggled to push each other backward.  The golem's wide sandals screwed
themselves into the sand to buy it more purchase.  The female Kannar grinned briefly.
     The golem seemed to swell suddenly as it gathered its strength and violently
shoved the hilt of its sword against the Kannar's wooden blade.  Instantaneously, the
female crouched and pivoted on her left leg as her right foot swept an arcing furrow
in the sand behind her.  Her body twisted lithely to her right, following her leg.
Her sword gave way, and in doing so, deflected the golem's forceful shove aside.
     Her broadsword seemed to fly around her body as she swung it around, generating
a mighty centrifugal force, and slashed the back of the golem's right leg, just
behind its knee.  The golem let out a hoarse screech as it spun, off-balance and in
pain, and toppled awkwardly onto the Kannar.  A muffled grunt of surprise squelched
out from under the golem.
     "Pathetic," muttered Havoc to himself.  "Plasma Girl?!" he called out, "You okay
under there?!"  The golem waggled its arms and legs and finally gained enough
momentum to roll over and off of Plasma Girl.
     "Thanks," gasped the Kannar.  The golem rose unsteadily to its feet and limped
slowly toward the water barrel resting against the far side of the pit.  "Hey,
Fusion, how 'bout a little help here?"
     Ion Fusion paused and looked back.  The golem gave a labored sigh before turning
and limping back toward Plasma Girl, her slender arm raised in the air.  Fusion
grasped her wrist, Plasma grabbed his, and with an abrupt jerk the Kannar was yanked
to her feet.  She swayed a moment as they released their holds, then she patted
Fusion on its wide shoulder and followed it toward the water barrel.
     "Again!" barked Havoc from his perch.  The fighters stopped and looked up over
their shoulders.  "You're not done yet!" Havoc shouted.  "I'll let you know when it's
time for your break!"  The warriors sighed in unison as they shuffled to face their
taskmaster.  "C'mon, Boss!" growled the golem.  "How 'bout a water break?"
     "Yeah!" nodded the Plasma Girl.  "We've been practicing this stupid kata for
over an hour...."
     The "ping" of the lead pellet striking the sloping top of her helm coincided
with the sudden shudder of the small Kannar's frame.  She crumpled back onto the sand
and tried to remember... something... anything.  As Plasma Girl gaped and gasped
hollowly, the startled golem wheeled clumsily and raised his wooden broadsword into
an awkward parry form.  Havoc stared boldly into the golem's deep-set eyes,
glittering brightly inside the shell of his upturned helm.
     "So far," Havoc snarled, "you two haven't impressed me!  You think-- aaawww,
     An unanticipated whine pierced the air as a brilliant yellow flame shook beside
Havoc, who took a quick step back.  After a few seconds Havoc could hear Fusion
panting again.  A slim youth, wearing crimson pantaloons and a black tunic of some
heavy material, took an arrogant pose, his arms akimbo, his head tilted toward Havoc.
A look of distaste marred his delicate features. 
     "I need to talk with you," declared the Arcane Kid imperiously.  Havoc gritted
his teeth and snorted explosively.  Without taking his eyes off the Kid, Havoc's arm
snapped out and a round lead pellet blurred into Fusion's forearm.  The golem grunted
and dropped his broadsword.
     "Pick up your weapon and that OTHER worthless idiot," Havoc bellowed, "and get
back to the barracks!"
     Arcane and Havoc watched from the lip of the retaining wall as Ion Fusion slowly
hauled its drooling companion up and over its shoulder.  Holding Plasma Girl in place
with one arm, Fusion gathered up their weapons with the other and headed toward the
flagstone steps leading out.
     "Kid, don't try to tell me how to run a stable," growled Havoc menacingly as he
crossed his thick arms across his broad chest.
     "What?"  The Kid pursed his thin lips and squinted.  "Oh, pullleeease!"  He
smirked and waved disdainfully in the general direction of the departing gladiators.
"Your problems are YOUR problems," Arcane scoffed.
     "Really?" sneered Havoc.  "I haven't seen you in over a week.  Did you come to
inspect the barracks, then?  I told you I'd get it cleaned up, didn't I??!!"
     "Hhhmmph.  No, I'm not here for that either.  But I guess, as long as I'm here,
I should make an inspection."
     "Kid!" exclaimed Havoc. "What do you want?!"
     "I wanted to let you know the price we're paying for that little jamboree you
     "I just SAID I'd clean it."
     "Not just that!" interrupted Arcane.  He pounded his left fist into a manicured
hand.  "The genetic components for the growth tubes weren't fully recalibrated when
you used them!  I'm having a terrible time coordinating and adjusting them!"
     "So what?"  Havoc turned his head and ran his eye appraisingly up and down the
Kid's agitated frame.  "Like you said:  Your problems are YOUR problems!"  The Kid
struggled to calm down.
     "Havoc, we need a warrior with incredible deftness and near-genius IQ!  I don't
know when, or if, I'll be able to make that happen!"
     "We'll manage," shrugged Havoc indifferently.
     "I believe that there is NO way we can be competitive in this arena without at
least one Aimed Blow, and thanks to you--"
     "I doubt that," sniffed Havoc.  "We've never had an A.B. that I can remember."
He shook his head slowly.  "But I know you, Kid.  Something else has tied a knot in
your panties.  What is it?"
     "We NEED an Aimed Blow warrior," Arcane insisted.  "From what I've been reading
in the managers' roundtable forums there's some sort of glitch in the system that
favors that style above all others!"
     "What glitch?  What system?!"
     "I don't know--yet." Arcane waved dismissively.  "I suspect it has something to
do with the arena rules, or the local 'magical properties' of the various fighting
styles, or some such nonsense.  Does it matter?"
     "Why don't you climb off of your high horse and just ask one of the other
managers?"  Havoc frowned.  "Those hoity toities used to hang out at the Elephont.  I
guess they still do, don't they?"
     "Well... that's sort of the other problem."  The Kid looked down at his
reflection in his highly polished boots.  "I, uh, well--I can't seem to acquire the
credentials necessary to be allowed access to the forums...."
     "You WHAT?!"  Havoc leaned forward, his face a gleaming beacon of joy.  "They
won't let you into their little club??!!  HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!"
     "SILENCE!!" shouted the Arcane Kid.  Havoc continued to laugh.  He was forced to
sit down; his heels drummed against the retaining wall as he roared and hooted and
giggled uncontrollably.
     "Havoc, this is important," said the Kid solemnly.  "I have sent letters to the
arena officials, but apparently they don't read their mail--  HAVOC!"  Arcane
grimaced and shook his head while Havoc rocked his body on the ground and gasped and
guffawed intermittently.  "YOU meddled with the Outworlder's growth and regeneration
chambers, YOU made it almost impossible to align the chromosomal patterns favorably--
and with so few fighters in Osksi, the tourney-bred scoundrels are hurting our
chances at glory!  AAARRRGGGHHH.
     "You're not listening, I see.  Very well."
     A few seconds of shrill whistling, a brilliant flame of yellow, and Havoc lay on
his side alone, wiping the tears from his eyes as he chuckled to himself.
     "Won't let him into their club," he chortled.  "Like that's a real problem....

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Virtual Reality's challenge, my win, and an inadvertent successful bloodfeud.
Only one skill for me, but I suppose I can't insist on everything.  Although... I
seem to recall one of these "self-actualization" gurus saying that we *should* insist
on everything we want.  Seems like it might be just a tad greedy.
     However, in a true spirit of sharing, I have given to Virtual Reality as good as
I got, and maybe a little more.
     Until next time,

                                  Kovaramann Voth

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for TV DINNER, who pummelled ZITI, to pocket 19 points.  
A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 7 
points to PLASMA GIRL.  (Discrete enough, STONED IMMACULATE?) You could cut the 
tension with a scimitar as VIRTUAL REALITY of STATE OF MIND met the Duelmaster.  What 
can be a greater victory?  VIRTUAL REALITY has taken his place as the top, as OSKSI's 
new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in OSKSI is taking speech lessons to try to 
bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of DREAMS OF KADATH 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of 
DREAMS OF KADATH found their efforts at combat frustrated as STATE OF MIND apparently 
had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, STONED IMMACULATE is 
the most challenged warrior.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
I hear ZITI of PASTA tired of the battles and was thinking of becoming a priest.  TV 
DINNER of GENERATION X saved him the effort of getting references.  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in OSKSI would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in OSKSI is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Storm Lord -- Thanks for the support!  You guys should write something, too.  This is
really as much about imagination as it is about calculating the weight of the armor +
the style + the activity level + etc. etc. -- Kid Arcane

Jorja -- Thank you!  And by the way, WHERE do you get these names from??  Some
freakish consonant-based contest??  I've never heard of any games like these!!   *^ )
-- Kid Arcane

Zombie Bait -- Oh, so odd!  I just got here and already gentlemen callers are at my
door!!  (I wonder why MY challenges didn't go through?)  Well, we'll just have to try
this again some time in the near future, okay? -- Plasma Girl

Skaevolovian Kor -- I seem to do my best when I'm punctured a few times.  Also, it
helps when you slip into exhaustion. -- Vector Unstable

Elbows -- That was an unfortunate matchup.  I was all thumbs; you were all elbows...
Bad for me. -- False Gravity

Menoldrin Sko --  I had heard that Games Library gave up great skills, but one lousy
DECIS??  What am I supposed to do with that?? -- Ion Fusion

Seriously -- Sending a spotlight to highlight a little quirk--I can't seem to log
into the forums, and getting a reply by email has been fruitless, and the same with
decade old passwords I'd forgotten -- I just wanna whine with the other managers.  Is
that too much to ask?  : )

Kovaramann Voth -- I can promise you, my friend... we'll be seeing more of each
other.  You're sitting on my throne! -- Virtual Reality

Kareoke Killer -- I think I smoked you that fight! -- Stoned Immaculate

Bob the Inhaler -- That fight drove me crazy. -- Funny Farm Fiend

Cthylla -- Something should have told you not make that challenge.  You should listen
to... -- The Voice Inside

Stoned Immaculate -- Arrgh!  I HAD you and let you off the hook.  Good job though.
Let's do that again soon. -- Kareoke Killer

Furious George -- Another close one.  I can't seem to catch a break these days! -- TV

Taint of the Sea -- The EPA asked me to do something about you!  Glad I could oblige.
-- Instant Access

Falrondial Voth -- Now that was painful.  Guess I have to try something different.
Like maybe switch to decaf. -- Coffee House Poet

Saldorinivan Kiro -- It's always good to start off with a nice winning streak!
Thanks for the confidence boost! -- Mega Pixel

Vector Unstable -- Are you a dwarf?  The Commission says we're the same race today,
and I've been trying to get them to admit that "five o'clock shadow" doesn't equal
"dwarf."  They're a little nuts about vertical parameters. -- Skaevolovian Kor

Coffee House Poet -- My momma used to say that drinking a lot of coffee would stunt
my growth, and I confess that I didn't really believe her.  Now, looking at you, I
wonder if maybe she had something with that? -- Falrondial Voth

Mega Pixel -- Well, okay, fine, but I don't see why anyone would *want* a pixel that
measures an inch to a side.  In order to see the whole picture, you'd have to be half
a mile away or so! -- Saldorinivan Kiro

Ion Fusion -- It says here that I'm Convician, and I'm pretty sure they're wrong.  Do
I look Convincian to you?  I mean, they say you're a golem, but you don't look it. --
Menoldrin Sko

Helias Sol -- We all have our special aptitudes, and mine seems to be teaching. --
Kovaramann Voth

Starless -- Apparently nothing will. -- Skaevolovian Kor

Plasma Girl -- Or just eager to jump on you? -- Saldorinivan Kiro

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
-- Fizban the Famous
