     Tirisha Dulake looked around the suite--the one hotel's best suite--and sighed.
It wasn't what she was used to, but until she and her husband could move into the
governor's mansion, it would have to do.  She glanced at her husband and her lush
mouth flattened in annoyance.  He had been the governor of Rodeki before--before
Gryzash--so why couldn't he accept that she would make him governor again?  She would
make him PRINCE of Rodeki, if he would just stop worrying!
     She sighed faintly and moved toward him, to explain--again--why this was a good
thing to do.

     In the anteroom of the suite, Sue E Syde, Lady Protector from Xochithlan and
escort of Princess Tirisha, sighed also.  Not that she knew what was going on in the
room behind her.  Or cared.  Her job was to guard King Feyen's cousin.  Or maybe she
was his sister.  Arenamaster Xoron hadn't been clear about that.  Or maybe Tirisha
was both his sister and his cousin.  Elves were like that; everyone said so.  Not
that it mattered.
     What mattered was the job.  And the people she had to work with.  Her teammate,
Lord Protector Rob A Ree, for instance.  Not the person she would have chosen to work
with.  Too full of himself, Rob was.  But at that, he was better than the Rodekian
Lord Protector Adabemis & Balmador.  The man was a fruitcake, and no two ways about

     "The whole shape of the Federation is changing, Devon," Tirisha said urgently.
"It's as though Gryzash was the keystone of an arch, and now that he's gone, the
lines of power are shifting.  Everything is changing.  Rodeki could be the center of
the shift, the point around which the new structure forms--and you could be--"
     Dulake shook his head.  "Rodeki?  Not a chance, it's a backwater.  Important as
a mining center, but it would never be the heart of the Federation, or even of the
Mordanti Alliance.  Besides, Queen Talissen wouldn't like it.  She'd be angry, really
angry.  And she's got a man here already, Gryzash's deputy, uh, Milvares, I think his
name is...."
     Tirisha could have shrieked and stamped her rage at her husband's over-caution,
but she held it in.  He never responded properly to such displays.  "A flunky."  The
elven woman dismissed Milvares with a contemptuous gesture.  "He will be dealt with."

     Sue E Syde looked up as the captain of Princess Tirisha's personal guards
emerged from deeper in the suite.  Captain Shirivien was an elf, of course, just like
the princess herself.  Well, Sue could live with that, as long as the man was
competent.  As he seemed to be.  But right now, he also looked annoyed.
     "Get the rest of the gladiators," Captain Shirivien snapped.  "We have a
     Sue raised an eyebrow in question.  Until she knew what had the man wound up,
she wouldn't know how to deal with it, and with him.
     Shirivien grimaced sourly.  "We're going to arrest the governor of Rodeki."
     The gladiatrix's other eyebrow joined the first.  "On what grounds and with what
authority?" she asked.  She had nothing against arresting a governor, generally
speaking, but if it was going to cause trouble, she wanted to know which direction to
watch to see that trouble coming.
     The captain's frown deepened.  "On the grounds that Princess Tirisha wants him
arrested, and by her authority."
     Definitely trouble coming.  "Does this governor have any guards of his own?" Sue
     "Of course he does."  Shirivien released his scowl suddenly and sighed.  "This
is going to make a lot of trouble."


     Faceless, a gladiator of The Black Company of Mordant, settled onto the small
ledge and leaned back against sun-warmed stone.  There was room here for her to sit
comfortably, and for a small satchel beside her (today it contained a bottle of beer
and a few slabs of bread and cheese), and a small but powerful crossbow on her other
side.  That was enough.  Her stint on watch here was only a few hours, after all.
And nothing was likely to happen.  Oh, sure, there were RUMORS, but you couldn't
count on a rumor to produce a good fight.  Her position had been formed by the
ornamental stonework on an old mansion overlooking the Feyranse River where it flowed
through Mordant.  Just across the river was the Queen's palace.  That was what she
was watching--the palace.  There were rumors of an intention to assassinate the
Queen, and Her Majesty's Herald, Allech Rabo, had taken the rumors seriously and
enrolled gladiators along with his regular men to cover the possible approaches.
     The Queen's official guards hadn't been pleased!  Faceless grinned, remembering.
Especially, it hadn't pleased that part of the Royal Guard which was composed of the
younger sons of Mordanti noble families.  Very insulted, they'd been.  Young snots.
It served them right, they'd had things too easy all their lives.  THEY didn't have
to enter the arena to make a place for themselves in the world.
     There'd been one especially, Ferris Kor, younger son of the Duke of Sharm.  Not
bad looking, if he'd ever had a pleasant expression on his face.  Which he probably
never did.  One of the other gladiators on guard, the Homicidal Maniac Babyface, had
told her that Ferris's older brother had wanted to marry Queen Talissen himself.  And
Ferris acted like that had actually happened, like he was royal himself.  What a
     But while her thoughts had wandered, Faceless's attention had stayed strictly on
the job, and she now heard someone making a quiet approach to her position over the
mansion's roof.  Faceless levered the crossbow to full cock and braced one foot under
herself in case she had to move quickly.
     "A friend coming."  The voice was low but familiar.  Marian of Ravenskeep, who
had graduated from Mordant arena and gone on to Lirith Kai.
     Faceless glanced quickly toward the voice.  It was Marian, all right.  She
lowered the crossbow as the woman settled into the angle beside a dormer window, the
nearest place to Faceless's little ledge that a person could sit.
     "Something may be happening," Marian said quietly.  "Word's come along that
there's someone on the river who isn't acting normally."
     Faceless quickly scanned all the river she could see.  There was a lot of
activity; there was always a lot of activity.  Barges hauling grain or coal or who-
knew-what.  Yachts belonging to noblemen.  Smaller boats, all the way down to canoes,
coming in from the swamp, or up or down the river from one of the outlying villages,
or just darting around on mysterious business of their own.  How could you tell who
was "acting normally"?
     "We're all supposed to watch for a green houseboat with a patched tarp over the
roof," Marian went on.  "If it goes on by, that's fine, but if it tries to land
anywhere along here," she hesitated, "well, we're to treat it like a proven enemy.
That's the order, anyway."
     "There it is!"  Faceless watched for a moment.  "Yes, that must be it, just
coming into sight around the coal barge."  The boat was barely moving, drifting with
the current; although one man stood at the stern sweep, he was steering rather than
driving the boat ahead.  He was keeping it well out into the center of the river,
too.  She tracked its slow progress down the river, sometimes losing sight of it for
a moment as it passed one of the larger barges.  At no point did it swerve closer to
the shore--either shore--or change its speed.  A false alarm....
     A faint movement, barely glimpsed from the corner of her eye.  Her gaze raced
back to the palace.  HAD something moved, something that should be there?  Something
along the waterline...something near the lower end where there was a low watergate
into the palace grounds.  Into the dungeons, more likely, but it must connect
     Her crossbow moved without her conscious thought.  The string slapped against
the arms and a bolt sped across and downward.  Faceless dropped another bolt into the
slot and searched the shore again while she levered back the heavy bowstring.
     "What was it?" Marian asked, peering across the river as intently.  "I don't
     "I'm not sure, but something moved near the watergate.  Could've been a muskrat,
but what if it wasn't?"
     "You're thinking someone might have dropped over the side of the boat where we
couldn't see?"  The older woman was already signaling to one of the other gladiators
on watch.
     The signal was relayed with mirrors, and presently a shape moved in the shadow
behind the watergate.  Opened it.  Two men in the uniform of Royal Guards stepped
through and looked around.  One knelt and reached into the water, dragging a body to
the surface.  Faceless could see her bolt sticking out of the man's back.
     "Good work," Marian muttered.

Off the coast of Andoria:

     Towers rising out of the misty dawn.  They had sailed due east from Skaithvarn,
so that had to be the coast of Andoria, but Raoul couldn't remember any coastal city
with such slender, pearl-colored spires.  Those looked more like the skyline of a
dream than practical stonework.  They caught the growing light and glowed.  They were
beautiful, but unearthly.  Unreal.  Not residences for practical folk.  Raoul thought
it a fitting destination for the boat Khaldren had made with his magic, though.  The
boat was, in its way, as dreamlike as the city ahead;  The hull was mother of pearl,
the sails were webs of cloud.  Magic, of course.  Powerful magic.  Raoul wondered
uneasily what Khaldren had done to assemble that power.
     The exiled Kraelian had already demonstrated that he was ruthless in pursuit of
his goals.  Raoul shifted slightly, uneasily aware of the waves of magic that seethed
throughout the uncanny vessel.  Khaldren had not hesitated to cast a spell on the
three gladiators when they entered his tower in Skaithvarn.  A binding of loyalty and
obedience, the Lord Protector guessed.  He had not resisted at the time.  In truth,
he had been taken completely by surprise.  But he sensed that the spell had not
gripped him so thoroughly as the wizard intended.  He was fairly sure he could break
it, and very sure that he wanted to be further away from Khaldren when he did that--
THIS spell, he could break, but what if the wizard immediately countered with
something stronger?  And the fate of the two women with him was unknown; they might
be as lightly held as he was, or belong to Khaldren body and soul.
     "That is Zorpunt," Jeri Northwind said.  Her voice was calm, emotionless.  Very
     Zorpunt?  Raoul blinked and controlled his impulse to question that statement.
True, there were towers in the coastal city, but nothing like those slender spires of
glass!  Without turning his head, Raoul looked sideways at the wizard.
     Khaldren's face was set in lines of effort, sheened with sweat.  Using his magic
to turn the work-a-day port city into this dream?  Wasteful of energy...unless he had
some inexhaustible source at hand.  And why?  "Krael shall be reborn," he muttered
through clenched teeth, "and Celestinvael, and Orgillat in the south.  But this shall
be my seat of power in the new world that will be...."
     The ship of pearl glided to a stop beside a dock that had been transformed
into...agate, Raoul decided.  Or something like that.  It was the kind of thing the 
Chaos contamination might have done in the recent past.  Maybe that was part of
Khaldren's power, that he could harness the residual Chaos energy?  Not a comfortable
thought, although the gladiator supposed it was better than using lives to fuel
magic.  So long as it didn't get loose.
     There was no one on the dock, no one moving anywhere in sight.  Khaldren stepped
ashore as an emperor might step ashore in conquered province.  The gladiators
followed, and the ship dissolved into mist behind them.
     The Assassins' Guild's Black Book appeared in the wizard's hands, and he smiled
at it coldly.  "I note that 'Arenamaster Kai' has a secret he would not like
advertised," Khaldren murmured.  "For a price, I will keep his secret between these
covers.  Bring him to me."  He didn't look at the gladiators at any point while he
     Raoul felt the magic sliding around him, urging him forward, and he was willing
to go.  Once out of the wizard's sight, he would test the binding, but not here.  He
and the two women walked quietly into the city.  Jeri, a native of Zorpunt, was
slightly ahead of the older gladiators.
     The streets were filled with mist even though the sun must now be up.  The
buildings, even the street underfoot, showed the effects of transforming magic.  They
were ethereal, idealized.  Unreal.  Nothing and no one moved that Raoul could see.
     Jeri turned a corner.  Looking up the cross street, Raoul saw what he guessed
was the arena, although no arena of his experience had ever had those delicate arches
of gold-veined marble.
     Raoul stopped, setting his feet firmly when the magic tried to force him onward.
It scrabbled at his mind, feeling like a handful of energetic bugs.  But he wasn't a
puppet.  He would not BE a puppet, especially not for a man who should have been dead
centuries ago!  He served his manager Generalissimo Puerco, King Mickeal of Andoria,
and Sheila Greywand.  The oath he had taken when he first reached the Isle shimmered
in his mind.  Khaldren's magic shrieked against it, fingernails on a slate, then fell
away.  The wizard would--must--know that he'd broken free.  Raoul turned set off at a
run down the first street he saw.  A real street, this one, with cracked paving
stones, and rubbish piled against the curbs.
     Someone was running and panting beside him.  He risked a glance.  Hallie O'Dene,
the Delarquan Lady Protector.  But not Jeri.
     They ran for several minutes, but at the first sign of people ahead, living
people, they dropped to a walk without needing to discuss it.  Running people are
conspicuous.  Neither of them spoke of their problem, either.  Time enough for that
when they were out of the city.  Zorpunt was a narrow city, stretched along its
river; and they were crossing its axis.  There was a bridge ahead, which would put
them on the south bank and that much farther from the arena and the dock where they
had left Khaldren..  That much closer to the countryside.
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     Hallie O'Dene leaned back against one of the trees at the edge of the road.  She
was breathing hard.  "Do you think we're far enough away?"
     Raoul dropped onto the grass beside her and glanced back toward Zorpunt.  The
city's skyline, barely visible in the distance, shimmered slightly but otherwise
looked normal.  "I think so, doll," he answered.  "I hope so!"
     After a minute, Hallie sat up straighter.  "I wish we could have brought Jeri
away, too!  I didn't realize until it was too late that she wasn't with us."
     "I don't think we could've done it, doll," Raoul said quietly.  He took off his
hat and stared at the dusty crown for a moment, then put it back on.  "I think it's
Lady Greywand's magic that saved us--the oath we took when we got to the Isle.  Jeri
might be a Lady Protector, but she never went to the Isle.  She had no defense
against...his spell."  He found himself reluctant to speak the wizard's name here, as
though it might draw the man's attention.
     "People have to be warned--"
     "And there's only us to do it," Raoul agreed.  "I'm heading for Andor by the
fastest road."
     "And I for Delarq Tor.  We are menaced, too.  Celestinvael and Orgillat!  Gods 
protect us.  If they're anything like the histories say...."  She shook her head.
     "I've heard of Celestinvael," Raoul said slowly.  "It was between Ardivent and
the Federation, and it existed at about the same time as Krael.  But Orgillat?"
     "Near the mouth of the Selwin river," Hallie said.  "It was of the same time.
We remember it--when we must--as a place of power and fear.  If...that man would
recreate the Empire of Skorlos, he must be stopped!  By any means that we can."
     Raoul nodded.  "The legends of Krael are dark legends, too.  I should be able to
reach King Mickael with the warning.  Who would be equivalent in the Delarquan
     "No one has complete power," Hallie said, frowning.  "Princess Chrysanth, maybe,
but...."  She sighed and shrugged.  "It's a place to start."  She got to her feet and
held out her hand as Raoul rose also.  "Good luck."
     "To both of us, we'll need it," Raoul agreed, standing.  He grasped her hand
warmly for a moment.  "May all your gods go with you."
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     Arenamaster Kai of Zorpunt glared at the stranger, hands twitching with the urge
to reach for his sword.  But the damned wizard had already demonstrated that he could
get a spell off faster than even an arenamaster could attack.  At least, Kai supposed
it was a spell, even if it was like nothing he'd ever seen before.  And nothing he
ever wanted to experience again.  "What do you want?" he croaked.
     "Your obedience.  This 'arena'--it will now be run for me, instead of Sheila of
the Grey Wand.  The blood will be spilled in my name, not hers, the power from that
blood will come to me, not to her.  This will be the beginning of a new Alastari, and
I will rule it!"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in KOLACT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Biff!  Pow!  KOLACT 
watched with glee as TOWNSVILLAINS got knocked off top spot by SIR AGLIO!  Hmmmph!  I 
always thought THE MENTORS was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  
Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out 
the pain!  WAR HAWKS is now ranked 7th with a 3-1-0 turn.  What's with REPENT?  He 
actually beat TOWNSVILLAINS' GOGO PATROL, and walked away with 22 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at THOROUGHBREDS while they watched REPENT clobber GOGO 
PATROL.  He lost 17 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
Another fighter (NEVENGAR 11-12-0) challenged another Duelmaster (SHYLAYLA MINOR 
18-9-0).  Life goes on.  NEVENGAR was reminded on the sands why SHYLAYLA MINOR is 
Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  KOLACT thinks BLOODSHED 
and their 9-21-0 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  The bums at 
MEGAWARRIORS couldn't face the challenges from BLOODSHED!  No excuse for that!  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, AERYN SUN!  Don't make 
idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  Keep challenging up 29 points, HOLY 
BULL, and I won't have to write about you much longer.  CLEO always accepts those 
kind of challenges...  CLEO must not been fighting well, cause she lost to HOLY BULL 
of THOROUGHBREDS.  Sometimes you just have a bad day where things get, um, mixed up.  
Taunt your opponent CHOBOJA SAMURAI!  That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly 
challenged.  (and by 17 points!)  CORVINA should have an easy win.  Just who can 
CORVINA beat?  I mean, the last matchup with lesser-ranked CHOBOJA SAMURAI shoulda 
been a piece of cake!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  OJO TANGO was plum wore out after STORMBLADE pounded 'im silly 
in a Bloodfeud.  TOWNSVILLAINS'll have to get a little better before going after 
STORMBLADE again!  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
KOLACT is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

So, everyone now knows that I am the one quietly running the Alastarian Idol contest.
The Upright Man is the only finalist, unfortunately.  So as long as the cat's out of
the bag and I am going to speak up, I may as well start making some challenges, too!
-- Assurnasirbanipal

Quadriceps -- Ha!  Looks like I broke your perfect record....  Just don't tell
everyone that your record wasn't in wins. -- Jaeill

List Keeper -- Guess I won't be able to fade in and out anonymously. -- Ghoti

     Just tell me when you go into an arena that you want to be anonymous in that

     arena and viola, you're anonymous.  Or you can just say I've made a mistake and
     no one will be the wiser (since I do make my fair share of genuine mistakes). --
     The Saint, keeper of lists

Sultan -- I was making reference to the fact that I don't run graduated fighters.
Until last mail-in...and had practically the whole team of hot-shots get the bums
rush outta town.  They flushed-out.  (That's washed-out x 2.) -- Still

Rubicon -- Yer'a hang'r in-there.  I get's bonus' for 3+ minutes. -- Gracie

Ojo Tango -- We thank you for showing up in the arena to meet our challenges.  You
are a very honorable and formidable opponent.  Good luck on your way up to the
throne! -- Zeus

Matrix -- Thanks for the welcome back! -- Thunderstrikers

All -- I believe I forgot how to send my gladiators off into combat, seeing we went
3-12 in the last 3 turns.  The strategies we have used in the past don't seem to work
these days.  If anyone has any positive suggestions, information or tips, please fire
away.  Thanks -- Zeus

All -- What is all this I have been hearing about a Lunger not being able to
effectively use a Scimitar anymore?  Haven't they always been able to use it in a
marginally effective way?  Any other changes I need to know about? -- Zeus

GC -- You missed these...Devil's Advocate is Assamite, and Bloodshed is Cheeto.  That
should do it! -- Matrix

     Righty-ho.  I've added those two to my list. -- The Saint, keeper of lists

Sir Pent -- Damn!  Congratulations!  You deserve it.  The first warrior I have ever
failed to bloodfeud (other than those who don't fight again after killing my
warriors!). -- Matrix

Sultan -- The way it has been explained to me is that Casimir is so old that when he
was generated 15+ years ago, you could actually get marginally effective weapons as a
fave.  No longer can a lunger recieve a scimitar as a fave.  I have a FREAK! --

Quada Al -- If you think I will be the only manager sending warriors after you due to
your name...well, I have it on good authority that you are wrong! -- Matrix

Rude Buddha -- Welcome!  Glad to have a little more CHAOS in the arena! -- Matrix

Sir Prise -- Nice learn there. -- Nevengar

Sultan -- You going to the ZALCON II? -- Matrix

Repent -- Never! -- Tycho

Point Given -- (sigh)  I didn't need that. -- Cleo
P.S.  What I need, actually, is a strat change, but fat chance of that!

Cyclone -- Blow me down!  Great skills, my thanks. -- Lunelle

Jack-O -- Remind me never to share your bathtub, then! -- Bailey O'Bead

Snowdrift -- I'm hot, chick.  That's what your problem was.  I just melted you down.
(smug look)  I have that effect on women. -- Trojan Roc

Mgr. of Devil's Advocate -- Attempting to go incognito?  Personally, I'd fess up if I
had your stable's record, particularly since your identity is hardly a secret.
Nothing wrong with a little pride. -- Sultan

Soultaker -- I just know requesting a current manager's list would flush out some
scum, too. -- Insultin'

Dr. Feelgood -- Can we assume you also play with toys? -- Sultan

Mgr. of Bloodshed -- Need help?  Not sure I'm the right one, but several managers
here ought to be able to provide you some.  Or perhaps you're an experienced manager
with lousy warriors here.  That's the excuse I use a lot in other arenas. -- Sultan,
mgr. of Sir Aglio, Qubit and a host of others

Shocking Toad -- Congrats on graduating Shylayla Minor.  Best of luck in ADM. --

Matrix -- My garage, eh?  Good observations!  Made me laugh. -- Sultan

Bloody Mary -- A bit ambitious there, weren't you, even with the style advantage? --
Sir Occo

Vapid Vanna -- Just lookin' for a pretty opponent.  Thanks. -- Sir Ingo

Deemonica -- My stables owed you that loss. -- Sultan

                                    CHAOTIC WINDS
     Once, long ago, the four Winds of Time descended upon Alastari like a TEMPEST of
epic proportions, they slew everything within their all-encompassing reach.  They
left nothing.  In their wake lay smoldering ruins.
     In their haste they sped towards the center of this great land like a colossal
giant would step across an ocean.  The four storms picked up momentum on their way
towards each other.  A collision was eminent.
     The first storm wind, the oldest and wisest of the four was named APEXALUS.  The
second, FLAGGSTAFF, was the quickest and loudest entity ever created.  The third Wind
of Time was MATRIATIN, neither old or young, quick or slow, but fierce and feisty all
the same.  The forth wind, ASSAMITHIUS, the youngest yet most creative in its means
of destruction.
     When finally they merged at the center of ALASTARI, an incredible destructive
explosion occurred.  And when the smoke and debris cleared they were one.  CHAOS was
     And Chaos spread across the diminished lands reeking havoc and doom with its
passing, and destroying allover again that which already lay in ruin.

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.
