     Sod takes a swipe at Nod with his morningstar.  Nod leans away from the attack,
feeling a sting of pain as a spike drags across his face, scratching him lightly.
Blood trickles down his face.
     "You drew blood!" Nod exclaims.
     "You leaned into the path of my star!" Sod retorts.
     "Did not!"
     "Did so!"
     "Your mother dresses you funny!" smirks Nod.
     "Touche, my brother!" laughs Sod.
     Swinging his broadsword and charging Nod yells, "Eat steel!"
     Sparks fly from the weapons as the brothers trade blows.  SOD winds up and
smashes with his morningstar, striking Sod square in the chest.  The power of the
blow sends the brother flying across the clearing in the glen.
     Leaping to his feet, cursing and swinging his broad sword deftly above his head,
Nod declares, "That's it!  I've had enough practice!"
     "Come brother, that was only, a 'love pat'.  Had I wanted to hurt you, I
would've broken a sweat." Sod chuckles.  "Let's kiss and make up like good siblings."
     "Grrrr!!!  You really tear my beard."
     "Oh, shut up ya big baby and show me how you killed that Amazon Quet on the
arena sands today," coaxed Sod.  "And, use the practice dummy this time.  My chest
can't take many more of your 'love pats'."
     Sod begins swinging his morningstar in an X pattern across his chest, allowing
the steel star to gain momentum.
     "Wait!" Nod exclaims, "The dummy needs this," leaning a quarterstaff against the
dummy, "...for protection."
     The basher lashes out with his morningstar.  The practice dummy is struck in the
face.  A snap!  Crack!  The neck of the practice dummy is left hanging by a splinter.
     Laughter comes from Nod.  Sod turns around and gives his brother an inquiring
look.  Nod walks to the dummy and picks up the quarterstaff saying, "Huh...guess the
dummy didn't have the strength to use that weapon."

     Dogface dumped his armload of tools onto the ground and looked around.  It was
not what he had expected.  He didn't know what, exactly, he had expected except that
it wasn't this stretch of bare ground at the foot of a hill, nothing but grass and
stones.  He looked toward Nahrmin.
     The arenamaster nodded.  "This is it.  We dig over there, by that tall stone."
     "The 'Graveyard of Dreams', eh?"  Nestor Khan's deep voice sounded like distant
thunder.
     Dogface glanced at him and then away.  He didn't know the Dark Champion except
to recognize on the street, and he didn't want to.  Something about the man made him
uneasy.  Not that Khan had ever done anything to him or in his sight to criticize,
but...he was strange.  For one thing, he wasn't a Mysterious Manager, so why were his
eyes faintly luminous and red when seen in the dark?
     Nahrmin didn't seem bothered, but Dogface figured the arenamaster was used to
his Dark Champion.  They probably drank beer together after the night fights.  The
very idea boggled--the arenamaster kicking back with a beer after killing a hapless
gladiator or two?  Maybe he, Dogface, shouldn't be mixing with these people.  He
didn't understand people like this.  he didn't want to.  Let Pericles do it.
     Nahrmin cleared away the brush at the base of the tall stone and indicated that
Dogface should start digging.  Now that the brush was gone, the gladiator could see
that there was the top of a doorway in the stone.  Probably there was more of the
doorway under the accumulation of dirt and dead leaves.  Dogface squinted at the
problem, selected the right shovel for the job, and began to dig.  He'd known from
the beginning that he would be doing all the grunt work.
     "Graveyard of Dreams?" Nahrmin asked, once Dogface was well started.  "Yes, I
suppose you could call it that, if you were poetically inclined."  The glance he
slanted at his Dark Champion was skeptical.  "I'm surprised the door is so nearly
buried, to tell the truth.  I know nobody has consulted the old archives for years,
but I hadn't realized...."
     Nestor Khan stepped up to the stone and ran one hand over the surface.  His
fingers were very long and thin, and sparks trailed behind his touch.  "Someone has
attempted to hide this place, this entrance.  Why?"
     "I can't imagine," the arenamaster said.  "There aren't any valuables in there,
just old records.  Mostly arena records, though maybe some others.  But--"
     "Old records."  Khan said the word as though he was tasting it.  "Books.
Scrolls.  Codices.  What better to place to hide...other books and scrolls...."
     "But nobody's been IN there, Nestor!"
     "Uh...maybe somebody has, maybe a year ago or so," Dogface said.  He flinched
when the Dark Champion turned on him like a striking hawk, but held his ground and
indicated the hole he was digging.  It was going down easily and rapidly.  "Here at
the top," he said, "it's blown leaves and drifted dust, like you'd expect.  Maybe a
couple of inches.  Been a lot of wind this year.  But below that, it's fill.  I mean,
stuff all mixed together, not layered.  Like somebody had shoveled it in to hide the
door, then trusted the wind to cover the surface."
     Nestor Khan crouched beside him and peered into the hole.  There in the shadow
of the stone, the glow of his eyes was noticeable.  "Astutely observed," he murmured.
"I will be very interested to see what, exactly, is in this vault."
     "But all we want is old newsletters!" Arenamaster Nahrmin protested.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JHELUM games.  Former top team BLACK & BLUE was 
unseated this week as THE SHALLOWSHIP moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at LOTHLORIEN's 
guildhouse after a 1-4-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 10th.  Dark 
Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness 
how this week FORCE OF FIVE went 3-0-0 to move up 6 in the rankings.  My praise to F 
BALLS for their 3-0-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round 
deserving of notice!  SOGNATORE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as he skillfully bested HUSBAND and was awarded 46 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, BAGMAN put down FOG SHOWER, causing him to lose 15 
points of recognition in the process.  Due to its absence and inability to defend the 
throne, SNOW FLEA has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail SOGNATORE, Duelmaster of JHELUM!  Informants "close" 
to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath 
his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city JHELUM.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  LOTHLORIEN is feared.  This much I can say.  If you didn't 
look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of THE SHALLOWSHIP 
last week.  Busy avoiding LOTHLORIEN?  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears 
and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after VANGUARD.  Watch your 
back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  I must report the passing of TIMMY!, veteran of 
many duels.  7-8-1 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no 
favorites.  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I have seen creatures cut down in 
their prime.  This week DIFFERENT HATS must mourn the loss of 18-11-5 HUSBAND to 
DREAMERS.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but 
sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
