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

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARUAK CITY games.  Former top team THE BLUES was 
unseated this week as MORAL FIBER moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with 
a 4-1-0 record for the round.  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare 
with VELVET GREEN's team record!  A 3-1-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 11th place 
ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of BAD HEIR DAY.  How else 
weeks like this one's 2-3-0?  How else the sudden move to 27th team?  Fortune did not 
smile upon THE BLUES this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 9th position in 
the wake of a 3-2-0 round.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which VIEW ASKEW 
managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  
DIK-DIK caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 
SALENA WARSMITH and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, DIK-DIK put down SALENA WARSMITH, causing her to lose 16 points of 
recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All 
hail BLIND LEMON, Duelmaster of ARUAK CITY!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if 
exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 
7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in ARUAK CITY these days is BAD HEIR DAY.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of MANIC MARVELS are catching 
the bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after BLIND LEMON.  Watch your back!  CONEY ISLAND must really be 
harboring a grudge against the U.B.O.S.M. guild!  Merciless, 16 challenged down 
DREIHDENBEAST points this week to duel with he.  Few would not have guessed the 
outcome of the bout as DREIHDENBEAST was bested by CONEY ISLAND.  Is this what passes 
for courage in ARUAK CITY?  As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip of fear lays hold 
of his heart.  True, FRUITY VIRTUES?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of 
THUNDERSTORM?  All the city knows the duel went in favor of FRUITY VIRTUES.  I shall 
not fail to spread the word in other cities of this "mighty" victory.  A match that 
raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that TONY MCALPINE posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized BLIND LEMON.  The results, you ask?  
Well, the firebrand TONY MCALPINE was overcame by BLIND LEMON.  Remember warriors, 
this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Was I the only one shocked to see the 
well respected fighter CONTINENTAL (3-1-0) appear on the sands of the Dark Arena?  He 
is now dead.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but 
sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in ARUAK CITY as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

I'll just cram them up your, er, uh, down your throat! -- White Heat, Proud Colorific

Allow me to place a last "brag" on the Colorific speciman, Golden Moment--a 9(+1)-9-

Persiana Jones -- Ah.  Well, I wasn't prepared to deal with the Ska.  That is out of 
my range of experience.  Good fortune to you in your bold expedition, however. -- 
Nila Sundancer

Ahbleza -- You have my sympathies.  I have made several p-strikes in the course of my 
dm career, and I have never figured out how to run them.  I generally just give them 
a fairly generic strategy and hope for the best... which I frequently do NOT get. -- 
Leeta, feeling helpful (because the wind finally dropped) but with no advice to give

Keldon -- It isn't a problem.  Some warriors just seem determined to kill.  For that 
matter, any warrior stepping out onto the sands is taking his life in his hands and 
well he knows it. -- Leeta

28 January 2004
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.

4 February 2004
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
