                                    The Squall

     The storm had been loud, its winds fierce, but it passed across Osksi quickly,
heading toward Transel.  A cataract of water boomed and swept through the city's
overhead aqueducts, speeding toward the northwest underground reservoir.  Bronze
gargoyles from the water spouts of the wealthier rooftops, their features malign and
secretive, vomited rainwater onto the streets below.  Dark clouds boiled and crackled
across the Northeast horizon, while the sky towards the West was blue and clear and
tinged with the beginnings of an orange sunset.
     Plasma Girl stood under the crooked roof of a small side porch, facing a narrow
alley.  A silver tankard was gripped tightly in her gloved fist.  She wore a short
sword at her hip; its wooden handle, tightly wrapped in copper wire, gleamed brightly
in the slanted sunlight.  The dark, tightly woven ring mail of an Oskian gladiator
did its best to hide her feminine frame.  She had spent many an hour with a candle
and an oily rag, lightly smoking the rings to give them the appearance of antiquity--
the armor of an experienced and battle-hardened warrior.  Only the trained eyes of a
veteran could discern the faint telltale of bright metal scratches near the buckles
at her shoulder and side, and correctly interpret the rigid creases in the recently
broken in leather.
     'But a veteran wouldn't laugh,' Havoc reminded himself as he watched her from
down the alley.  'At least, not a teammate.'
     Plasma Girl's back scraped against the uneven stone wall as she swayed slightly,
staring with hollow eyes into the alley, watching the rivulets of water sweep odd
bits of debris toward the sewers.  Sodden shirts and breeches lay pressed against the
weeping cobblestones, snatched from someone's laundry line and flung down carelessly
by the torrential rain and rough, jostling winds.  The wind had largely died down
now; the sound of laughter and singing could be heard pushing through the crooked-
planked door as Havoc approached her, moving smoothly and quickly for all his bulk.
     "What's the good word, Plasma?" asked Havoc.  He raised his fist raised in
greeting before banging it against his chest.  Plasma Girl looked startled, but
managed a weak grin.
     "I thought training was over for the day," she muttered.
     "It is, it is," chuckled Havoc.  He stood squarely in front of Plasma, looking
down and catching her eyes as she looked up.  They stared into each other for a few
moments.  Suddenly, Plasma looked away and raised a shaky tankard to her lips,
slurping loudly.
     Havoc put out his hand and rested it on the wall beside her head.  Plasma Girl
ignored him.
     "What's eatin' you, P.G.?  You've been acting funny ever since you lost that
last one to that TP weenie from Generation X."
     Plasma Girl's body trembled slightly.  Her breath deepened.
     "How was I supposed to win?  He's a TP, right?"  Her voice caught at the last
word, pushing it out softly.  Havoc smiled and straightened, looking across the
narrow alley as Plasma Girl was doing.
     "Well, you went four rounds--against a TP.  Not bad at all.  Hey, I thought he
looked pretty damn concerned when you tagged him a good one in minute two!" Havoc
grinned.  The tension in her body seeped out.  The two turned silently to look down
the alley at the sun as it began its bright dive toward the horizon.
     "C'mon, Plasma.  Spill it. What's eatin' at you?"
     Plasma Girl sighed deeply and gathered her strength, finally pushing away from
the wall and teetering around in a half- circle, looking up at Havoc with clenched
teeth and swaying slightly.
     "I know how it is in the arena," she choked out at last.  "Pretty soon I'm just
dead weight, and you'll be giving me a ticket out of town, or maybe send me to some
of that 'special' night fighting, like you did C.J. and Nopey."
     "Hey, Vector Unstable went too," chuckled Havoc.  "Don't you think he came back
     "Stop teasing me!" rasped Plasma Girl. "I know my chances of coming back, and
they're not good!"
     "No, they're not," Havoc shook his head.  "But you're one of our veterans,
right?  Only Vector has more time out on the sand than you, Plasma.  And he'll be
gettin' his call to the Isle before too long; that's my guess."
     "So that means--"
     "That means we can't afford to get rid of you," growled Havoc.  "At least, not
     "That's not too comforting," jeered Plasma hoarsely.
     "It's a tough world," retorted Havoc.  "You could die on the sands, or you could
pay your graft to the Dark Arena and pray they honor it."
     "That's it??"
     "Then go live on the beach selling t-shirts or somethin'."
     "I came to be a fighter!"
     "So who's stoppin' you?"  Havoc face was still and impassive; only his eyes
seemed alive.  They burned into Plasma's for a moment before flicking up and down her
frame in a shrewd appraisal.
     "Plasma," sighed Havoc at last, "you've made it this far.  I can't promise you
this ride will last forever.  Nobody can."
     "I, I know that!  I j-just want a..."
     "A chance.  Just a chance," Havoc nodded.  "I know.  Believe it or not, the Kid
feels the same way as you.  That's probably why you're still around!"
     Havoc smiled briefly and squeezed her shoulder--hard--then turned and stepped
lightly over a puddle in the uneven brick road.
     Plasma Girl watched his wide mailed back as he strode away.  The rays from the
setting sun were shunted neatly from the oiled black rings of Havoc's byrnie.  The
grizzled bristle-brush head was half-hidden by the dark layered hood.  Plasma Girl
looked down at her ring mail and gently touched its rings with one gloved hand.
     A crescendo of pipes and fiddles now screeched out through the gaps around the
door.  Plasma Girl looked down into the tankard dismissively and offered a brief
smile.  Then she straightened with a determined frown and staggered stiff-legged to
the door and shoved it back hard, banging it against a couple of locals who were
loitering in a drunken argument nearby.  Their yells mingled with hers as she smashed
her tankard into the face of the nearest man.  The second man froze immediately while
his companion dropped senselessly to the floor.  He stepped back and out of her way.
     Plasma Girl winked roguishly and swaggered awkwardly over her fallen opponent.
She pushed easily through the small, milling crowd near the musicians and managed to
collapse into a chair at the Kin's table.
     "What kept you?!" yelled Vector through the raucous music.  Plasma Girl laughed
and beckoned toward the bar.  Her eyes were wide and bright and a little wet, just
like the streets outside.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome OSKSI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with GNOCCHI?  He 
actually beat OSKSI's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 16 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at DREAMS OF KADATH.  ZOMBIE BAIT lost 4 points to ELBOWS.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ZOMBIE BAIT will provide more easy wins...  Try 
as he might, SHUB NIGGUARTH wasn't good enough at persuading FURIOUS GORGE to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to 
practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, GENERATION X!  The 
bums at DREAMS OF KADATH couldn't face the challenges from GENERATION X!  No excuse 
for that!  What do people see in SHUB NIGGUARTH?  His 10-3-1?  DREAMS OF KADATH ain't 
talkin', but he's got 97 points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the 
kind of fights that VIRTUAL REALITY gets in.  He fights people like TV DINNER, 11 
points below.  I thought VIRTUAL REALITY showed great skill and promise when he 
subdued TV DINNER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of OSKSI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  CTHYLLA looked 
pretty sick and surprised when she learned DREAMS OF KADATH is sending her to the 
Dark Arena!  Whadd'she expect with a 5-7-0?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters 
getting younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now. 
Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
