Zorpunt:

     If anyone was aware of a difference in the air of the city, or in the texture of
life and death in the arena, they did not mention it.  Of course, with a stranger
holding a wizard's staff and guarded by...some kind of monsters sitting in the
arenamaster's box, who was going to mention things, even if they DID notice?
     And who, dying messily in the Dark Arena, would mention strange lights and
unexplained whistling noises?  If Arenamaster Kai saw fit to lay down pentagrams and
other designs of colored sand on the arena floor before each fight...well, he WAS the
arenamaster.  No doubt he knew what he was doing.
     It was known that a few managers intended to protest that they had not ordered
the actual, literal death of their warriors, but only formal dismissal from the
gladiatorial system.  But when they came back from the arenamaster's office, they
looked pale and shaken, and they had nothing to tell anyone about the situation.  And
one or two of them didn't come back at all.
                      ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     "There IS something going on," Penok muttered to Jessie June as they waited in
the ready area for their fight to be called.  "Something bad.  I can feel it in my
bones.  I don't care what the Rau says."  She jerked her head sideways slightly,
indicating Tijiss Rau, the arena steward waiting in the archway just ahead of them.
     "You know Rau," Jessie June muttered back.  "'All for the best in the best of
all possible worlds', that's Rau.  He wouldn't know 'something bad' if he ate it for
dinner and got sick right after."  She eyed the crystals set into the wall of the
arena.  About a third of them were black, the rest were blood red.  They reminded her
of the eyes of spiders.  "If those are purely ornamental, I'll eat 'em."
     "Magic," Cane Toad said flatly, coming up behind the two women.  "Blood magic.
You can smell it in the air.  At least, I can.  There's a lot of it down south where
I come from, and I'd know that smell anywhere."
     "I thought all magic was screwed up because of the Chaos and the Arcanum and
all!" Penok protested.
     The poisonous Toad shook his head firmly.  "Not blood magic.  You spill enough
blood, nothing else matters."
     "And there's always a lot of blood spilled in the arena," Jessie June whispered,
horrified at the possibilities.
     "And the arena's been bloodier since those crystals went up," Cane Toad said.
"There's something bad going down here."

Valamantis:

     Hallie O'Dene went overland from Andoria to the Delarquan Federation.  It might
have been faster to sail--if she could have found a ship going where she needed to
go, or hired one.  But she found herself distrusting the Trier.  The mage Khaldren
had come out of the Trier, after all.  He might have some power over it.  And he was
bound to notice that she and Raoul hadn't come back from the errand he'd commanded.
But these were all logical reasons that she had arrived at to explain her decision to
herself.  In fact, she simply hadn't trusted the Trier at an instinctive level.  She
made her way on foot along the coast to Gelafan, then hired horses as needed for a
fast ride south.  Well...fast!  She might have laughed if she hadn't been so worried.
Six days to Valamantis.  What horrors might the mad wizard have accomplished in six
days?
     Her plan was to take a riverboat up the Feyranse past Mordant to Sibikhas, and
then go by horse again to Delarq Tor.
     But there were towers behind Valamantis, where no towers had been for hundreds
of years.  They had none of the dream-like unreality of the vision towers that
Khaldren had raised over Zorpunt, and that was alarming.  Valamantis was much older
than Zorpunt.  There had once BEEN towers--it was called Old Valamantis now, and it
was in ruins except for the arena where the Bloodgames were held.  On that thought,
Hallie froze briefly, horrified by the realization that there had been Bloodgames
recently, lakes of blood spilled on that ancient soil.  What might Khaldren have
conjured out of that?  She didn't think she wanted to know.

Aruak City:

     The return of a wizard from drowned Krael was news that should reach Andor as
quickly as possible.  It took Raoul two days to reach Aruak City from Zorpunt, longer
than he would have liked, but faster than he had feared.  The Aruaki countryside had
suffered badly during the civil war and from the Chaos contamination just before
that.  People were getting it back into shape now, but there were no horses to be
rented or bought.  Or stolen, come to that.  Walking was faster than riding a plow
horse would've been, even if he could've gotten hold of one of the plowhorses.
     But he was damned glad to see the towers (most of the towers, some were nothing
but stumps) of Aruak city ahead.  He compared their slightly battered appearance with
the towers of Khaldren's Zorpunt and found this much better.  This was REAL.  Maybe
not perfect, maybe not as beautiful as a dream, but real.  He'd take this over the
perfect illusion any day.
     His first goal in the city was the Bulldog Inn.  He needed news, he needed to
contact his manager, and he wanted to alert Adie, the manager of the Tuft Tuggers, to
the danger.  Adie was a magician of some kind--he'd never bothered with the details--
and she could be an important part of the opposition to the Kraelian.  EARLY
opposition, too, before the man got entrenched in Zorpunt.  That might make a
difference.
     The Inn was jammed.  Odd, that.  Aruak City had always had a vigorous dueling
community, but...this many gladiators?  He could barely SEE across the common room,
much less move quickly.  But there was a table of managers in an alcove at the back.
He'd find news there, if he could reach it.
     The Lord Protector took a last look at the crowd, shook his head, and plunged in
under the elbow of a Shew.  The man was too tall for most managers, but there were
always one or two who would give a large gladiator a chance.  From the looks of the
scars, this man had been at it a while, but he was nobody Raoul recognized.  Well,
he'd been away for a long time.  Quite a long time, actually.
     "Raoul!"
     He paused and looked toward the woman whose hand was on his sleeve.  Hair like a
sunrise and wide violet eyes.  "Lady Adeolar!  You're one of the people I wanted to
find.  There--"
     "Not here in the middle of the floor, Raoul."  She drew him to one side and
through an inconspicuous door.  "Jhordeal will be glad to know you are well, but
that's not what you came for, is it?"
     "Glad to know I'm...?"  When had he been in Aruak City last?  Mantor, it was
years ago!  Before the civil war, and he had died....  He took off his hat, looked at
the rounded, dusty crown, ran a hand over his head, and put the hat back on.  No time
to go into that now.  "No, doll, that's not why I came this way.  There's magical
trouble.  Serious magical trouble, I think."
     "You came from Zorpunt?"  She twisted a lock of hair between nervous fingers.
"I have felt something happening there--something dark--"
     He nodded briefly.  "I saw it start, and it's going to be damned dark," he
muttered.  Quickly, he sketched in what he and Hallie had learned of the wizard
Khaldren and his intentions.  "I don't know how he's doing that much magic," he
finished, "because everyone says the Arcanum is in decline and spells aren't working,
but--"
     "He's using blood magic."  The woman's beautiful face hardened.  "It is the
oldest magic and the most primitive.  Almost always used for darkness and
destruction," she muttered, frowning, "even though it doesn't have to be....  It's
the least dependent on the Arcanum, unfortunately, the easiest to pervert, and the
hardest to control once it gets started."  She frowned, twisting the lock of hair
harder.  "In the hands of a powerful wizard with no scruples...."
     "That's what me and Hallie figured," Raoul said, nodding.  "I'm headed for
Andor--the king has to be warned.  And Hallie's taking the warning to Delarq Tor."
     "Yes, of course.  Definitely the right thing to do.  But you need to see your
manager before you leave town, Raoul.  He's been worried about you."  She patted his
arm absently, still frowning.  "I will gather as much information about this wizard
and his spells as I can....  I wish Shania were here, she is so good at that.  Well,
I must work with what I have."  She patted his arm one last time and opened the door
to the inn's main room.  "Off with you, and tell the other managers that...tell them
I have things to do, and I'll add to your news later."

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in KALTOS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for HANS JOILICE?  THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5's proud of him after beating MORDANT DESERTER and getting 11 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  SILENT got smashed by BELISS DON, and lost 5 points! 
Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think DERBIE FOYLE should let SOUL 
CATCHER be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy 
that said KALTOS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look 
at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  THE TAKEN was the most avoided team.  Is a 30-30-1 
record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why MORE NEW TEAMS 2's been 
avoiding THE TAKEN so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is FRIED 
TWINKIE popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of KALTOS!  She's got a 
10-4-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

All -- I send out this invitation to all teams and managers.  A new Alliance has been
formed.  The Living Essences Alliance is being formed to join forces in an effort to
eliminate common foes and to help the joined warriors grow and learn to the best of
their abilities by offering suggestions and advice.  It doesn't matter what arena
you're in, or if you're in another alliance already, as of today.  This Alliance is
open to one and all!  If you are interested in joining, please DIPLO me, or send a
personal ad to DM 93's newsletter.  If you wish to join beyond March 2004, send a PA
to DM 82.  Come join the fun! -- Dagan LifeGiver, mgr. Shadow Warriors (DM 93)

28 January 2004
This notice is to formally introduce our young alliance, CHAOS INC.  We consist of
APEX, FLAGG, MATRIX, ASSAMITE, and now RUDE BUDDHA.  If we aren't already there, we
WILL be coming to an arena near you soon!  Hope to see you all at the ZALCON II.

Greeting from Jhans, DM 36 -- In 2 turns the kLk will host our first annual "St.
Valentines Day Massacre" in Jhans, arena 36.  (Kill Contest)  The contest will begin
on turn 450.  It will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461 the winners will be announced.
There will be 3 separate categories, the team with the most kills, the alliance with
the most kills, and the warrior with the most kills.  For the manager of the team
with the most kills a PRIZE of 10 ROLL-UPS will be rewarded (or $50 deposited into
his account).  No need to declare yourself in the personals.  If you are in DM 36,
you will be part of the contest whether you like it or not.  We encourage as much
trash talk as you'd like.  All teams, managers, and alliances invited.  Please
contact Polarius (mgr. of Blitzkrieg) in DM 36 with questions.  Or you can email me
at jamieptmo@hotmail.com.  Good luck and see you in the sands. -- Polarius
