                                A Brave New Horizon

     Two coarse and dirty figures, stooped under either end of a wide, blocky bed
frame, trudged toward a low cart already half filled with various household debris.
High-backed chairs with wide, scarred armrests were thrust in amongst various leather
bags and buckled satchels.  Several barrels were wedged in tightly in the forward end
of the cart.  A thick, oiled canvas was rolled up and ready to be lashed in place.
Two pairs of stout oxen stood in front, harnessed and chewing placidly on a couple of
bales of hay.  Nearby, warriors from Astral Kin, likewise chewing absently on their
breakfasts, loitered nearby to watch the slow process taking place.
     Havoc paced back and forth between the cart and the inside of barracks #4.  He
paused occasionally to holler various commands or curses.  A team of three men kept
moving back and forth between cart and barracks as Havoc watched, his thick arms
crossed in front of his broad, mailed chest.
     His frown twisted into a heavy sigh as a familiar screech tore through the damp
air and a narrow, purple oval spun into sight next to the cart.  The oxen paused in
their chewing momentarily, their ears pricked high and their shoulders rolled
forward, preparing to bolt or charge as necessary.  The screeching quickly died; the
purple oval evaporated; a slender young man wrapped in a thick purple robe trod
lightly towards Havoc.
     "Ho, Havoc!"
     "What is it now, Kid?"
     The Arcane Kid stopped in front of Havoc and met his frown with a light-hearted
smile.  He turned slightly and gave a brief wave towards the cart with the back of a
well-manicured hand.
     "How are the preparations going?"
     "You can see, can't you?" said Havoc gruffly.  "We're only taking a few
essentials.  Don't know yet what your plans are for the Kin.  Some of them are a
little nervous."
     "Ha ha!  Are they?" Arcane glanced around, but the warriors had suddenly
remembered various errands in other parts of the compound.  None were in sight.
"Well, what are they nervous about?  The coming blood feud from State of Mind?  I'll
wager that silly Sunspot was more surprised than his opponent."
     "Probably!" snorted Havoc.  "But I don't think that's what's on everyone's
     "We'll just have to see how he handles the challenges we know are coming his
way," replied Arcane absently, watching the men load the cart.
     "No kiddin'?!  Wow, why didn't I think of that?!" snapped Havoc as he pivoted
and stomped heavily into barracks #4.  Arcane shook his head and followed tranquilly.
     Havoc muttered a few instructions to a handful of workers (who quickly
disappeared) and then dragged a bench over to the fire pit, which was packed with
layers of fiercely glowing crimson coals.  High above the coals, a pronged skewer
crowded with a dozen chickens turned slowly.  A young boy, perspiring and standing on
a short stool, turned the long crank handle.  Havoc ignored him and snatched up a
small keg that was sitting on the wide rim of the fire pit.  He pulled a thick cork
from one end and poured a dark, frothy liquid into a deep goblet.  As Havoc recorked
the keg, Arcane bent forward and snuffled in the general direction of the goblet.
Havoc snatched it up and glared briefly at the Kid before taking a moment to gulp a
few swallows.  He made a deep, contented sigh and dropped heavily onto the bench.
     "That doesn't smell like your usual, caustic brew," sniffed Arcane.
     "It's not," admitted Havoc.  A brief smile traced across his face and evaporated
quickly. "Got it from a merchant who supplies the Dark Arena warriors with their
stuff.  Imported from some far place."  Havoc gulped another swallow.  "It's really
good," he growled.
     "Uh huh."  Arcane moved toward the boy who had been industriously turning the
crank.  A quick wave of dismissal sent the boy scampering off.
     "If those chickens burn, only Ion will be able to eat 'em!" said Havoc.
     "This won't take long," smiled Arcane.  "I need to know the status of the
warriors for Shadowspire."
     "What about 'em?" Havoc's eyes narrowed suspiciously. "They already left, Kid.
Sent 'em on the local transport a couple of days ago.  They're supposed to rent a
place and get settled."
     "How'd they seem to you?" asked the Kid nonchalantly.
     "They weren't much.  I doubt if you'll get even one win the first time out the
gate!" Havoc drained the goblet and set it down on the low stone wall surrounding the
fire pit.  "Are you sure you don't want to just send the whole team to the Dark Arena
on their first turn?  They're going to lose anyway."
     "You sent a team of unknown fighters, AND money, to...?"
     "No!  C'mon, Kid!  You know me better than that.  Fortunately, Solly hasn't been
doing much since his retirement.  I gave him some cash, the forms and legal stuff,
and sent him with that, that... team."
     "Now Havoc, you don't need to..."
     "The hell I don't!" interrupted Havoc gruffly.  "And what about that name you
picked?  Archaic Chaos?  What does that mean?"
     "Well, I was trying to keep the initials the same as Astral Kin.  That way we
don't have to buy new luggage..."
     "Oh yeah. That's a plan."
     "I know what I'm doing, Havoc.  That name is perfect for the types of warriors I
     "You have to get your vision checked, Kid.  Those guys were big, strong, and
stupid.  Pretty much worthless, except for that one," he paused and seemed to
     "Did one of them stand out to you?" asked the Kid expectantly.
     "Yeah, come to think of it," replied Havoc.  "There was one girl in the group.
She was short, weak, and stupid."
     "Look, Havoc, I know you're not thrilled with the process here," Arcane said,
"but it's the system we have to work with.  This is just the way it is.  Get over
     "Kid, why didn't you let me use a few of the guys I have on tap from my
     "That lot?!" Arcane snorted and gave a light-hearted chuckle.  "Did you
eventually find anyone worth wasting our time?"
     "HEY!  Most of them were better than the five we sent to Shadowspit!"
     "Shadowspire, Havoc.  Shadowspire."
     "Whatever," grated Havoc.  "The point is, those guys are worthless!  They won't
be much help to us, whatever arena they're in!"
     "Didn't you place them in the growth chambers for a little fine tuning?"
     "Sure, sure.  Sort of."
     "Sort of?" Arcane cocked his head quizzically.
     "Well, we had a hard time packing three of them into the tubes.  I don't think
they were able to get a good dose of that Gamma K radiation you're so hep on.  And
also, hey, they smell pretty bad.  That Gamma stuff made it worse."
     "Gamma K has many uses, Havoc, not the least of which..."
     "Yeah, yeah, yeah.  Anyway, I think a couple of these guys are no longer morons.
They're just slow."  Havoc grit his teeth and leaned toward the Kid.  "And one guy
can probably hit a little harder than a small girl.  Maybe.  But he can't carry much
more than a stick."  Havoc took another healthy swallow from his goblet.
     "What the hell s good about THAT?!  I'd like to know!!"
     "Now now," smiled Arcane.  He made a placating gesture.  "We have to work with
what the commission sends us.  Who knows?  Perhaps a recent parlay with the giants
and orcs has resulted in an influx of lost souls who are now looking for a means of
employment.  Think of this as a public service."
     Havoc growled and moaned at the same time.
     "Don't worry too much about it," chuckled Arcane as a familiar sparkle began to
play about his features.  "The sooner they die, the sooner you can hire replacements
to suit you!"
     "Hey!  What about the Kin?!" Havoc yelled into the purple light that enveloped
the slim figure.
     The shrieking departure of the Arcane Kid echoed in barracks #4 for a few
moments.  Havoc sighed and uncorked the keg.  He poured his goblet full, then shook
the keg and frowned.
     "Boy!  Get back to work!" Havoc barked.  Shaking his head and mumbling under his
breath, he finally shrugged and trickled the last of the contents of the keg over the
chickens as they slowly began twisting over the coals again.  A pleasant aroma arose
as Havoc dropped once again onto the bench and tossed the empty keg into the fire
     "We're gonna get our asses kicked good," he muttered to himself.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in OSKSI this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
GENERATION X is pushed out of top team by IRATE FORMATIONS, who came from 2nd with a 
3-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to 
drown for GENERATION X, whose 1-3-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 5th.  The ASTRAL 
KIN guild has had a 4-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never 
know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, PLASMA GIRL fought MENOLDRIN 
SKO and gained 17 points and contributed to ASTRAL KIN's 4-1-1.  MENOLDRIN SKO has 
lost to PLASMA GIRL, falling 15 points, while helping make GAMES LIBRARY a 1-4-0 
turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between KOVARAMANN VOTH and our Duelmaster 
FURIOUS GORGE, making a challenge.  Defending his title for another turn, FURIOUS 
GORGE kept GAMES LIBRARY's warrior, KOVARAMANN VOTH, from claiming the throne.  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Elefont until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  GENERATION X has cause to stand 
tall, as they were OSKSI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And avoiding GENERATION X more than any other team we find DREAMS OF 
KADATH.  OSKSI, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports 
fans, take notice that KOVARAMANN VOTH from GAMES LIBRARY was OSKSI's most challenged 
warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, ZOMBIE BAIT from DREAMS OF KADATH challenged 
up 25 points to fight THE VOICE INSIDE from the STATE OF MIND stable.  ZOMBIE BAIT 
perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it was subdued by THE VOICE INSIDE and ended 
up with 37 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Hearty mugs of ale were raised in OSKSI today as INSTANT ACCESS was 
bid farewell to a 6-4-0 warrior, with VECTOR UNSTABLE of ASTRAL KIN standing silent 
and pensive.  Seriously now, is it really honorable for VECTOR UNSTABLE from ASTRAL 
KIN to kill INSTANT ACCESS and give GENERATION X the chance to bloodfeud?  Mmmm, 
could be.  I wish to point out for PASTA that there is but a single turn before 
GENERATION X and their warrior, TV DINNER, will get away with killing ZITI.  A brave 
warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight 
is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, OSKSI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in OSKSI, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in OSKSI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Kareoke Killer -- All things in good time. -- Sunspot

State of Mind -- Ironic, isn't it?  Atral Kin is the most avoided team.  You guys
have the largest number of avoids.  Sunspot accidentally kills one of your warriors.
A bittersweet joke, really. -- Arcane Kid

Kareoke Killer -- I hope the experience of getting pounded on was worth that
challenge! -- Vector Unstable

Menoldrin Sko -- That pretty much ends my experiment in odd / unfamiliar designs. --
Ion Fusion

Coffee House Poet -- It's the caffeine.  Yeah. (bongos tapping softly) Yeah.
Caffeine. -- Plasma Girl

Saldorinivan Kiro -- So, this Beggar dude goes from one fight to the next, eh?  Which
one of us got to him first?  I think I may have softened him up for you!  You're
welcome! -- Cosmic Joke

I recently came across a forum post--some guy wanted to play another team and was

asking which arena was the most promising.  Somebody said Osksi, 'cause we have seven
teams that play all the time.  Liar.  We have four full teams that play regularly.
Am I right?  -- Arcane Kid

     Some days yes, some days no.

Instant Access -- Your access has been revoked!!  That's so insane!!! -- Funny Farm

Furious George -- I would most certainly like a rematch once I hit the challenger
champions again.  Well fought, my friend. -- Virtual Reality

Falrondial Voth -- Something told me that I would enjoy fighting you...  I'm glad I
listened! -- The Voice Inside

Skaevolovian Kor -- I must have been smoking something that fight...  I never knew
what hit me! -- Stoned Immaculate

Sunspot -- You probably did my manager a favor... he really never liked me that much
to begin with.  Did he pay you to do that? -- Ghost of Helter Skelter

Kovaramann Voth -- A hearty congrats on your ADM invite!! -- Marma Duke & State of

TV Dinner -- If that's what they serve tourney victors, I'm glad I'm not one.  How
much of the "roast beef with gravy, mashed potatoes, and peas" is actually soy? --
Kovaramann Voth, sadly disillusioned

Ion Fusion -- What I don't see is why anyone would want their ions fused.  Separate
and discrete sounds like the plan to me. -- Menoldrin Sko

The Voice Inside -- Yes, and the "serious treatment" I required was the surgical
removal of a weird voice that somehow got stuck in my ear.  Any clues about that? --
Falrondial Voth

Stoned Immaculate -- I knew several like you, back in the day.  I was not impressed.
-- Skaevolovian Kor

You're kidding me!  Persistent Beggar?  WHY? -- Saldorinivan Kiro

Quarterstaff?  What the heck!  I don't have the wit for a quarterstaff. -- Kovaramann
Voth the disgruntled
P.S.  13-12-15-9-13-7-15  QS  vhi/mod.  Adex in attack, no other ratings.

Virtual Reality -- Yeah, I've probably taught you all I know.  Unless you want to
learn my secret recipe for Garlic Chicken. -- Kovaramann Voth

Instant Access -- Does this mean you'll be kicking my rear but NOT taking my name? --
Skaevolovian Kor

Cosmic Joke -- We work at it. -- Falrondial Voth

Kid Arcane -- I'll put a background spot for this team on my list of things to do...
I'll think it'll be on page... 179? -- Jorja

     The later it shows up, the better. -- the Editor
