The rains had stopped last night. This was good because no one, not even an orc, 
wanted to stand in a down pour to say good bye to a fallen comrade; Gutsag Bakwort. 
The stable of the Bloody Hand Clan stood around the massive pine coffin in silence. It 
rested on a pulley system that held the coffin over a freshly dug grave. In the bottom 
of the grave, rain water had pooled. But it was not enough to warrant climbing in and 
bailing out. To the side eight burly men, the pallbearers for the funeral, stood next 
to a wagon with a two-horse team of Clydesdales whinnying their dissatisfaction of 
being out in the cold and the wet. It was spring, but there was still a bit of cold in 
the air. Winter refused to go peacefully in this part of Alastari. But it could be 
worse. They could be standing in the cold and sharp winds of Snowbound. Their winters 
were like a house guest that over stayed their welcome. Three months of cold usually 
turned into eight or nine.

The total number of attendees were only five; two goblins and three orcs. One would 
have to be blind not to notice that four of the assembled left a space three-men wide 
that separated them from one orc. His name was Eadskar and he was big. His body looked 
like a mass of corded muscle topped with a massive head with a heavy jaw. That jaw had 
two thrusting teeth that reminded one of a boar's tusk. More than once the two goblins 
assembled snickered and commented. The mocking was ended when a fat female orc boxed 
them both behind the ears. Her name was Maud. She was the unofficial mother hen of the 
stable. Everyone knew she was not one to trifle with.

They were all dressed as presentable as possible for orcs. Some wore black leather 
boots and black britches tucked in. The goblins wore white shirts and had daggers 
tucked into sheaths at their waist. Maud wore the same. But she had decided to wear a 
red blouse as opposed to black like Ugarg had. Or white like the goblins had. The 
blouse was opened just enough to show the beginning of her cleavage. The shirt was a 
pull over and didn't draw too much attention to her ample gut. She carried her war 
hammer across her back. She had worn some of her nicer jewellery too. More 
specifically her earrings. The female orc's ears had been pierced twelve times; five 
on the left ear and seven on the right. Each piercing held a small gold hoop.

Ugarg was not so extravagant and he only carried a short sword at his waist. It was 
not sheathed. It was simply tucked into his belt. Maud and Eadskar had groomed their 
hair. Ugarg had simply used a little rain water and ran his fingers through his thick 
hair. He only did this when Maud warmed him about someone named Eadskar. Ugarg looked 
over at the massive orc again. He did not look so tough standing there in his fancy 
suit of chainmail. It looked expensive though. The same went for the full helm with 
the massive horns he had tucked under one arm. The others had mention Eadksar used a 
battle axe in the old days. None was better they said. But now he had a great sword 
strapped across his back.


All assembled looked to the sky and thought it was time to wrap the ceremony up before 
the rain began again.

"Anyone goin' ta say any thin?" Maud asked. She kept the part about Eadskar chasing 
off the priest and Gutsag's fans to herself. It made no sense to chase them off. 
Especially the priest. At least he managed a quick blessing before running for his 

Eadskart unfolded his arms and moved towards the coffin.  He placed his hand on the 
coffin and it slightly swayed.

"Yoos had ta go an git yer self-killed, didn't ya Gutsy? You would 'ave loved it on 
the isle. Dey don't have slaves like here at da guild house, but tings are nice der. 
And dey send ya on des misshuns. Those are great. Yoos git ta go ta different places 
an kill people fer da Lady. Dat is the best part."

There only silence and the sound of distant thunder. Eadskar looked up as if he was 
waiting for lightning. Wearing all of that metal made his a little uneasy. Not that he 
would tell the others that.

"If only..." Again, a peel of thunder. This time it was louder and it seemed to be 
getting closer.  "...If only yoos had been more careful. Yoos would still be ere 
workin' on yer invite. I would love ta 'ave a friend on the Isle.  I know we 'ad our 
differences. And yes, I tried ta kill ya. Even though yoos stole ma' chance ta avenge 
Bekah's death. I know yoos wuz only tryin' ta protect me. Dats wat a friend does. Dats 
wat yoos wuz. A friend. "


This time the rumble was louder. So loud that it caused the coffin to vibrate.

The coffin to vibrate?

Eadksar looked over to the pallbearers. "Yoos. Yes! Yoos git yer lazy bums here now. 

Eadskar began pulling the coffin with all of his might away from the hole. The eight 
pall bearers came and helped guide the coffin and lower it down onto the muddy ground.  
The man who had used the pulley to lower the coffin to the ground had picked up a crow 
bar and began to pry the lid off of the coffin. When the lid was removed, the orc and 
eight humans moved away from the open coffin. All had their hands over their noses. 
The smell from the coffin spread quickly and the other orcs did the same. The goblins 
gagged. They looked so comical that it was hard to tell if they were joking or 

Gutsag sat up from his coffin. The orc was not dressed. The stable thought it was a 
bad idea to waste good clothes on him. He was dead after all, right? So his big hairy 
belly and chest was exposed for all to see. Now they saw this as a bad idea. They 
collectively prayed to whatever gods listening for him to not stand up.

"Yoos suppose ta be dead!" Eadskar shouted.

Gurtsag yawned and scratched his hairy belly. He let loose another gust and yawned.

"Wat? Why do I 'ave ta be dead? He only hit me in da fore 'ead."

"Wit a mace!" Maud exclaimed. The foul odour had dispersed and she could breathe 

"Yeah. But ma 'ead is da second hardest part of ma body. Ma belly being the 'ardest."

"Why didn't you tell the embalmers?" one of the human pallbearers asked.

"Well... I was restin'. Dat mace really did 'urt and dat hospital place wuz nice an 
quiet. So I slept."

The orcs and goblins laughed. Partially at the joke but mostly in relief that the 
portly orc was back.

"And dem guyz at da hospital..."

"Mortuary." One of the pallbearers corrected. Eadksar glared at him and the man took 
several steps away from the orc and told himself to keep his mouth shut.

"Yeah. Mort-chew-ary. Dey are so nice. Dey left me half a chicken and a big jug of 
spiritz. The only problem is the spiritz make me toot."

And the portly orc let out another one rip and everyone began to gag again.

Realisation dawned on one of the pallbearers. He spoke with his hand over his mouth, 
"That wasn't spirits. I think you ate someone's lunch and drank a jug of 

"OH! Dat must be one of dem fancy drinks like brandy or port. I needz to git me sum of 
dat in town. Anyway, letzs go home."

Gutsag stepped out of his coffin and made his way back to Arkers. The rest of his team 
mates followed. They were still happy to see him.

The pallbearers turned their heads or closed their eyes. After that wretched smell, no 
one should be made to lay eyes on that nude orc.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Excerpt from the journal of Halin Stormbreaker

I finally did it. I have gained the title and received my invite to the Isle. I cannot 
begin to tell how happy I am. Years ago, I set out with a challenge to my skill. I 
vowed to enter the arena in the fashion of the by gone days and fight with morning 
star and shield. But not on occasion, but in every fight that I had. There were times 
that the commission made a clerical error and some sweaty page came running up to me 
with a broad sword to fight with. I won but it was too easy. But a morning star! That 
is a weapon of kings. The sound of the spiked ball as it whooshes through the air. The 
meaty thunk that it makes as it crashes into your opponent's skull. I admit that I 
found great satisfaction when I heard a wail of pain from my opponent while they 
writhed on the ground. That is true power. The morning star should be respected and 

Now I have been given a new weapon and I have to say that I like it! I look forward to 
training with it and improving my skills even more. Immortality tends to make even the 
most mediocre fighter a god compared to men.

My final challenge in Arkers will be against Humble Lee. Yes, I know that he is the 
third in ranking. But I want to see him get a shot. Rumour around Arkers is that he is 
truly a humble person. Plus, we have matching records. (Ha-ha)

Praise to Mantor the Bright,
Lord Protector Halin Stormbreaker

                                      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 ARKERS, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--BOOK OF THOMAS.  
What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to BOOK OF THOMAS.  Good things come to those who fight well, 
as BLOODY HAND CLAN can attest, moving up by 0.  SMITHSONIAN had cause to celebrate, 
after GOLD RUSH got 22 points by beating RAL STORMBREAKER.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, GOLD RUSH was winsome, after beating RAL STORMBREAKER and seeing 
him lose 16 points.  What can be a greater victory?  THE DEALER has taken his place 
as the top, as ARKERS' new Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in HOYT 
FOUNDATION are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of THE CHOSEN, so did that sorry team 
shy from HOYT FOUNDATION Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good 
oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, JHERI BLOOMERS is the most challenged warrior.  Them's 
the breaks, MAUD STONEGUT.  Expecting fair challenges from HOYT FOUNDATION is 
evidently too much to ask.  JHERI BLOOMERS subdued MAUD STONEGUT with a point 
difference of 36.  So this is what ARKERS calls a duel.  This will make an 
interesting tale.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Never one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see BOOK OF THOMAS 
retaliate against THE CHOSEN in bloodfeud!  Questions are being raised about the 
disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in ARKERS would I 
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Oh, Zowie! Bloody Hand, I loved your 'acky Git downchallenge (93 -- 74; 10-3-1 to 5-4-
0) to Zulu. Now that meanz I am free, free, free to DC the zuck out of you. Life is 
Zweet! -- The Zee Man

Ugarg Snotnose -- Stop!  I know what you're going to say ... Yes, I do work out. -- 
Humble Lee

Eiger the Fortunate -- Just so you know (now that the mandatory 3 day scumfest 
inquiriy period has expired), I let you win.  My agent called, and I just HAD to take 
the call.  Sorry to all those who lost money on me. -- Defensive Lee

To the Good People of Arkers (and the Muddy Hand Clan):  Defensive Lee was pulled TOO 
EARLY!  Alas, my cries of moral outrage fell on deaf ears with the commission.  He 
leaves at 20(+4)-18(+3)-13-9(+2)-21(+1)-3-11(+1) with naught but an Expert in Parry 
for his 40 fight trouble.  Let that be a lesson to you!  Even the best laid plans 
sometimes go awry. -- Bruce Lee

Ral Eggbreaker -- Ah! and they were all one basket, too! -- Basketeer

The Chosen -- The Claw decides who will go and who will stay! -- Garden Forester 
*driving his new toy (across the sands and into the stands!)*

Basketeer -- I bet you regret that challenge. -- Ral Stormbreaker

Book of Thomas -- You killed one of ours and I killed one of yours. Onl did not 
deserve that. But Troubadour, I took great pleasure in it. Especially after seeing 
what you did to my brethren. I await your vengeance. -- Hal the Crazed

Defensive Lee -- Marvel at my martial skills! I beat you and you get an
invite to the Isle. You're welcome! But I jest. Good fight.
Congratulations on the invite. -- Eiger

I know I am not as good of a manager as everyone else, but I decided to post Halin's 
stats. Maybe this will be a lesson on how not to design a wall of steel.

HALIN STORMBREAKER (8-5498): ST=16 CN=13 SZ=8 WT=16(1) WL=16(1) SP=6 DF=11. He has a 
Master in initiative, a Master in attack, an Advanced Expert in parry, and one or two 
skills shy of experts in everything else. Halin's learns were all over the place. He 
started winning when I stopped running him like a wall of steel and started running 
him like a basher. He will retire on the Isle. -- Longshot

Zulu -- Heh... Sorry der mate... Heh... But I had ta see if I could do 
it...Hehehehehehehe... Zuluuuuuuuuu... Hehehehehehe... Good fight... Heh...Not 
really... Hehehehehe... Blue Whack-a-Do Zulu! -- Acky Git

Humble Lee -- Hur hur hur. Yoos did not see too humble ta me. Dat pointy stik hurt! -- 
Ugarg Snotsnik
