Valamantis:

     Ka D'Argo looked at his crew of "explorers" and shrugged.  They were a motley
bunch, drawn from several teams, managers, and arenas, people he'd found passing
through Valamantis on their way from one place to another.  Mostly from the arenas
where they were fighting--most of them were still in Basic--to some holiday spot for
a week's recreation.  Most people assumed that gladiators always stayed home,
practicing relentlessly, but that was the way to dull your edge, not improve it.  He
glanced at Arenamistress Sitalva, but she shook her head slightly.  It was his show,
apparently.
     He took a breath and began.  "You see the towers of Old Valamantis, raised by
blood sorcery."
     Everyone turned to look.
     Smeds of The Black Company, Mordant, sniffed dismissively.  "Second class
stonework," he declared.  The Dwarf's gesture took in needle-thin towers webbed
together with bridges like dreams.  "Not really stonework at all; that's built with
magic.  Was built with magic in the beginning."
     "Stupid," agreed Shamu (The Watchmen, Cliffhome).  The two Dwarves nodded at
each other.  "Unreliable.  Not like good honest stones that stay up whether you're
paying attention to them or not."
     Goblin (The Taken, Kaltos) frowned at the no-longer-ruined city.  "You mean
somebody's got to pay attention to that all the time, or it falls down?" he asked in
a voice like gravel grinding together.
     "Not EXACTLY," murmured Lavender Lance (Colour Guards, Illis).  Quickly, before
the two Dwarves could protest, she added, "In principle, yes, quite possibly.  But
nothing is EVER that simple.  What I've heard--I'm no mage, but there's always talk
of magic on Illis, you understand--is that a spell can be put into a THING, like,
well...like the sound is in a bell, maybe.  Or like the light is in a candle.  Under
the right circumstances, it comes out without anybody having to think about it right
THEN, and it keeps on existing as long as the circumstances last.  I suppose I'm
explaining that very BADLY, but--"
     "But we follow it well enough," Sputter (Joka Masher, Dwes Eg, Lord Protector)
finished.  "So there might be a THING that we could break and the towers would fall
down, hmm?"
     "Bringing the towers down again might be a good thing," Ka D'Argos interjected,
"but it won't solve the problem here, even if we could find the right spell-holders
to destroy.  That won't get rid of the people."
     "Zombies," Groblin growled contemptuously.
     "Not entirely," Sitalva said.  "We haven't gone into the old city, but we've
watched it closely, and there are some people who don't appear to be undead."
     "How can you tell?" Smeds demanded.  "Just because somebody's not falling apart
doesn't mean he isn't a NEW zombie."
     "There are live and potent Folstrom wizards in the old city," a new voice said.
The pleasant tenor seemed to come out of empty air but was quickly followed by a man
in a dark blue robe spangled with silver stars, his hair bound back from his youthful
face by a silver band.  He bowed slightly.  "Tensekai," he introduced himself, "known 
here as the Silver Mage.  Bringing down the towers without first destroying the
Folstrom would be futile, a waste of energy.  And not easy, either, as the spells
that uphold the towers are well guarded.  The important thing is that this situation,
unnatural and abominable as it is, gives us a chance to undo a great error out of the
past.  We can destroy the Folstrom this time, rather than merely driving them off."
     "Correct me if I'm wrong," Lavender Lance murmured, batting her eyelashes at the
mage, "but I HAVE read a little history.  I thought the Folstrom weren't destroyed
because it wasn't possible?  They were too strong for the Forces of Good to bring
them down completely."
     Tensekai nodded unhappily.  "That's true.  But we've had three millennia to
study further.  We have new arts and new allies to bring to the battle this time."
     "And what might the Folstrom have learned in three thousand years?" Ka D'Argos
asked.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in JHELUM, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--CLASSIC BLUES.  
Thinking about sending their team manager to the Dark Arena is TEERAK HA, after 
suffering a 11 drop in ranking.  Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, 
LUROCIANS Z2 blew up the rankings to 11!  BLACK & BLUE posted a nice gain, to come in 
7th.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for SYNDICATE, who pummelled 
TINIETON, to pocket 19 points.  TINIETON certainly had a baffled expression on its 
face, after losing to SYNDICATE and losing 15 points in the process!  Can you believe 
it?  CHASM OF IGNORANCE apparently has better things to do as JHELUM's Duelmaster 
than show up and fight!  In JHELUM, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find 
ourselves a new Duelmaster, HUSBAND.  Word has it one team in JHELUM is taking speech 
lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are JHELUM's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in CLASSIC BLUES are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need 
to avoid 'em.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of CRUSADE, so did 
that sorry team shy from CLASSIC BLUES Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, MESSERI ADLER is the most challenged 
warrior.  Call 'im brash!  Call 'im brassy!  Call 'im brave!  Call 'im sassy!  ALL 
LICKERED UP will face MESSERI ADLER, up by 29.  Aaaah, just call 'im dead meat.  The 
gods smiled upon ALL LICKERED UP, in his upset fight against MESSERI ADLER.  ALL 
LICKERED UP gets a win, 21 points, and a free drink on me.  (Next week, OK?) WHITE 
WIND challenged BRAM DE WAARD!  Who says MAYAN WHITE are just a bunch of wimps!  
WHITE WIND of MAYAN WHITE kept hers wits as she lost to BRAM DE WAARD.  Mismatched by 
15 points, TRAUMER lost to RAM.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought RAM showed 
great skill and promise when he subdued TRAUMER.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Never one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see INSANE 
REIGN retaliate against MAYAN WHITE in bloodfeud!  Ask not for whom the sword 
slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!--

All -- I sent in the styles already, but have not seen them in the P-Ads.  CHAOS MAGE
will compete for the Basher SM and CRAZY CHAOS will compete for the WOS SM for INSANE
REIGN under Matrix's banner for CHAOS inc.

Hammer -- Chaos arrived en mass for this contest, but we're here for the same reason
as you; to compete with the best!  You need not be distracted by our presence, we
demolish ourselves more than anything so far.  Our newest alliance member keeps
killing us as a way of thanking us for the membership.  Anyway, I am Matrix of CHAOS
INC. and I hope my warrior's blades sing loud if we meet on the sands so that I can
say I gave you a good fight!  Long life warriors of HAMMER!!! -- Matrix

Z2 Admins -- I am hereby announcing Gamble2 as a contestant (however short lived) in
the Parry-Lunge Stylemaster competition and Padis Vinic as a contestant in the
Slasher Stylemaster competition. -- Rillion

Fire Ball -- Turns out you were the only active Adept there was to fight, but I
wanted to see if it was a fluke or not. -- Husband

George Mikan -- That is not how you make friends. -- Deacon

Hesabull -- My manager's ignorance lost that one!  And figuring out how to make my
manager run me differently is a problem indeed. -- Problem Solver

Our Gom Jabar -- Sor Tomang Fatingo.  Yeah, well your name doesn't make any more
sense. -- Cubs Fan, mildly depressed with the start of the season. (Hopefully by the
time this is in print, this will be long out of date!)

Wizard -- Justice shall be served. -- MAD LEE and Chaos

Wizard -- Accidents happen.  But so do I.  I happen to be bloodfeuding you--Spee or
Mad Lee.  I'm feeling a bit psycho right now.  Not too sure who I am!  Bah!  It
doesn't really matter now does it?  Least 'til I er...we get out on the sands--Mad
Lee or Spee or whoever the hell I am!!! -- Insane Reign, coming soon (rather
chaotically), to a Loony Bin near you!

All -- Announcing the arrival of Sparkacus, number unknown, who will compete in the
Wall of Steel style master contest for the Shock Troops. -- Slaughter Priest

Gus -- And the Westside Bullocks.  That was just tough luck on your part.  You should
demand the Arena Master investigate the credentials of those working in the
infirmary.  Two hits to the leg (and you're even still standing on it) and they let
you die??  It's an outrage! -- Arc Burn

Green Knight -- Geeze, I still don't see how that happened. -- Ghost of Jolt

All -- Draken is a Parry Striker. -- Assamithius

Zalcon Officials -- Please admit these 3 new warriors to the SM Competition.  Raze, a
Lunger (replaces the fallen Bob) the brothers Nod, a slasher & Sod, a basher to the
SM competition. -- Farnham

Hammer -- I've accepted the death of my precious Bob.  She will be a missed asset in
my stable of warriors.  Please allow me to alleviate your fears and worries.  Such a
sudden loss in the arena was expected on my part and I will learn from the
experiences gained, but I will not run in terror.  No worries. -- Farnham

New entrant -- White Rhythmic Mirror will be entering into the TP style master
competition.

Super Bowl -- (frowning fiercely)  That isn't my sport.  Gluttony just doesn't
appeal. -- Pericles

Grotesque -- Yesssss, yes, I can see that you ARE grotesque.  Whereas decent toads
wear jewels on their heads, you have...a most disgustingly colored toadstool.  Did
nobody tell you that toad stools go at the other end?  You sit on them. -- The
Coriscan
P.S.  And you're too tall.

Spee -- I have NO wish to hang around with someone who shouts "speeeee" and waves
sharp pointy things.  Asking for trouble, that is. -- Dogface

27 March 2004
     This notice is to inform the DM world that CHAOS INC. has added CHEETO to its
ranks.  He joins APEX, FLAGG, MATRIX, ASSAMITE, and RUDE BUDDHA as the 6th member.
May your chaotic wings spread disaster and CHAOS for all your days!  Welcome CHEETO!!

27 March 2004
     Has anyone seen it in print that the "Goat" is leaving the "Cartel"?  There were
some diplos to the effect of a special branch of the Cartel being formed, like secret
societies, governmental agencies and alliances certain agendas are developed.  To
obtain the desired effect of any agenda only key personnel can be used.  The "Goat"
is "Cartel" so until you see it with me announcing that I am not Cartel, remember,
"The Agenda of the Core is for you to fight for."  I hope this stops the confusion.
-- Goat

8 April 2004
CLICK (KLK) -- Remember, you asked for it.  Chaos is coming....

14 April 2004
CHAOS Inc. proudly announces our newest member, Silver Stroke.  He becomes the
seventh brother of Chaos.  We shall indeed be better for his joining.
