                                   Andorian Edition

Aruak City:

     "First, gather information," Adeolar muttered.  It was one of the basic rules
that the more information you had relevant to your problem, the better your chance
was of solving it.  She frowned at her gilt-framed magic mirror, twisting a lock of
hair thoughtfully as she considered how to make best use of it.  It was still
working, after a fashion, but the reddish film tainting the glass was stronger.  It
confused the images, and she suspected that it also indicated something more
dangerous than misreading a scene: that the spell which it embodied was being
contaminated by blood magic, as well.  Contaminated, and maybe distorted, maybe even
subverted.  Did she dare use the mirror spell now?
     Did she dare NOT use it?  She needed information to plan her campaign against
Khaldren.  She shook her head and wiped at the red-tinged glass once more.  She would
just have to--
     "Ma'am?"
     She glanced over her shoulder as Segallion Sundancer, one of her warriors,
looked into the room.  His countrywoman Nila was with him.
     "Nila and I were wondering if we could help, ma'am.  You being a sun priestess,
and us being temple staff of the Sun Temple on Korvant Isle, well, we thought we
might be... compatible."
     "Oh.  Hmm."  Adie frowned, her fingers automatically going to one of her curls
and twisting it as she considered the possibilities.  The worship of the sun as
performed in the western Karian states was not at all like that of her own tradition,
but it might work.  It might, at least, be worth trying.  "Perhaps," she said
finally.  "Let's set it up this way:  I'll start on my own, and if I don't need your
help, you keep out of it--  It's too dangerous to mix in if you aren't needed," she
added sternly as Segallion opened his mouth to protest.  "But you be READY, and if I
need help, I'll signal you."  Maybe she would, but maybe not.  It WAS dangerous, and
neither gladiator had achieved Shelia Greywand's immortality yet.  But she understood
the need to be helpful, and she might not have to make use of their aid.
     When both gladiators nodded agreement, she turned back to her mirror.
Carefully, with every aspect of the spell observed meticulously--something that
wasn't necessary under better times, because spells were normally all of a piece and
could "take a hint," as it were--she began the incantation that would activate the
mirror.  The surface shimmered crimson silver, glittering and trembling.  This was
NOT the normal behavior of a mirror spell!  It felt as though she was trying to lift
a great weight with her mind.  She had never thought of the veil between HERE and
THERE as a weight before....
     Abruptly the glass cleared, or nearly so, a reddish film remained.  And there
was risen Krael as she had seen it before.  But this time she was not interested in
the general view.  It was an accepted law of magic that for every strength a magician
or wizard had, there was a corresponding weakness.  Khaldren had come into the
present from Krael, and somewhere in that city she hoped to find a clue to his power
and his weakness.
     There was the ancient city, mud-stained and battered by the centuries it had
spent sunk beneath the Trier.  There the survivors, moving about their tasks which
seemed inexplicable but must be linked in some way to Khaldren.  She selected one of
the better-dressed men and began to follow him through the ruins.  His course was
erratic, she thought at first it was to avoid the obstacles presented by the city's
decrepit state.  But he climbed over the mound of rubble that represented a fallen
wall, and splashed through a knee-deep pool of water and mud.  There were easier ways
to get from one point to another, so why...?
     The man met up with another, handed over a... she couldn't see what, a crystal
of some sort, and sat down on a stone to wring out the hem of his robe.  The other
man set off across the rubble.  With a cold shock, Adie realized that the movement of
these men, and others in Krael, were themselves parts of a spell.
     What kind of spell would be produced by somatic components on such a scale?  A
very powerful one....  Were the other "risen cities" involved in this?  Celestinvael
had been mentioned, and Old Valamantis.  Adie turned her mirror-sight to the south.
     She was marginally aware that behind her the two gladiators began to dance and
chant.

Near Ardivent:

     Master Cho, former manager of the Bluvalley Warriors of Ardivent and Chan Chi
Monastery of Khalhums, sipped his wine and nodded approval.  "Very good.  Quite
drinkable, in fact."
     Fandil, former manager of the Fandils, laughed and poured wine into his own cup.
"Like you wouldn't drink it anyway, you old bandit?"  He sobered.  "What brings you
down from the mountains, Cho?  The rumors about Celestinvael?"  The ancient city lay
in the forested no-man's-land between Ardivent and the Delarquan Federation, and
woodsmen had been bringing tales of marvels and minor disasters for weeks now.  That
it was a matter for concern, a matter that would bear watching, was undeniable, but
Fandil had seen nothing to indicate that it was urgent.
     "Celestinvael is enough to worry about," Master Cho answered, nodding, "and it
is indirectly what brought me here.  If you think about what the city was like in its
last days...!  But my immediate concern is young Adeolar up in Aruak City."
     "I may be retired," old Fandil said stiffly, "but I'm not COMPLETELY out of
touch, Cho!  Adeolar is a very competent woman, and Kennelworth is not worried about
her--he'd have mentioned it in his last letter.  She can handle anything she's likely
to meet."
     "No doubt... one on one.  But that fool Khaldren has invoked and involved
wizards from a dozen centuries.  Not all of them will work together--as well try to
get cats to run in step!  But some will, and can she handle two, or six, or ten, if 
they're all working together?"
     "Ah."  Fandil was silent for several minutes, stroking his beard slowly as his
mind raced.  "Ah.  That could be... bad.  Very bad."  He set his wine cup down
carefully.  "You're quite right.  We'll have to assist her, or at least be ready to
do so.  Now?"
     "What better time?"

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, finally!  I am the Duelmaster.  It was a long wait with those other
Bulldogs seemingly getting to the throne before me.  But, I am here.  Indeed!  And I
reach this pinnacle just as I am offered a Lord Protectorship.  Life is clearly good.
     What was even more pleasant was being matched with a Neverwake, Double-Tap, and
making it doggone doc clear who was the best.  It is always a pleasure going to the
Doc and coming out healthy (and smiling).
     There were those who had questions about me at birth.  "Off to the DA", some
said.  After all, a 9-3-18-17-18-16-3 with great damage and normal endurance did not
seem like much to them, I guess.  But Kennelworth had faith in me, and maybe the +4
attack, +2 decise, +3 defense helped.
     Throughout my career, I have used only a trusty shortsword, going 83/267/27
(crits/attacks/extra value).  I do not know if it is my favorite (probably not) as my
info was purposely sent to another address.  I do know that the SH worked just fine.
Just fine.
     A 17-8-3 record would seem to be a pretty fine arena resultant, wouldn't you
think?  I have enhanced that with a 13-9-1 tournament record, so I am pretty proud
overall.  I seem to have done best against slashers in the arena @ 5-0-1, with fellow
lungers not far behind.  As you might suspect, the TP's were hardest, with 2-4 being
my record, and I didn't beat any plungers or pikers either.
     As I make my departure after next turn, and I go the route of retirement, I want
to thank everyone for the help and support they have given me in Aruak City, The
Heart And Soul Of Andoria.  A special appreciation has to go out to all the Invaders,
who made my record so much stronger in these latter days.  Thank you disrespectful
guys for being there; you were easier than the NPC's.
     I bid you all "adios", hoping only that I leave Aruak City a better place than
when I entered it.  Health.  Humility.  Honor.

                    Beef Bullion, Duelmaster (A Mighty Proud Bulldog)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARUAK CITY.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  You know what they say 
about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  SCARLET KNIGHTS II moved up 12 
places, to 3rd.  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not THE BLUES' opponents, 
after watching them shoot up the ranks from 16th to 5th.  You know what they say 
about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  GRYFFINDOR HOUSE2 moved up 13 places, 
to 19th.  Ever take one of those association tests?  You know, he says black, you say 
white.  Water-Lake, Sky-Blue. Try this:  Flop.  COLORIFIC!  Some people say I ramble 
too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well 
SNUGGLEBUNNIES moved up 2, to 4th.  What's with FUZZBALL?  He actually beat TUFT 
TUGGERS' BRANFORD HAWKE, and walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at TUFT TUGGERS.  BRANFORD HAWKE lost 14 points to FUZZBALL.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe BRANFORD HAWKE will provide more easy wins...  THE 
HEADCUTTERS II's hatred of BULLDOGS surfaced again as LONNIE JOHNSON challenged ARUAK 
CITY's top dog.  LONNIE JOHNSON was reminded on the sands why BEEF BULLION is 
Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, WHEN DOGMA FAILS II!  In my day, no team with a 12-16-0 would scare me off! 
What's the problem, ANIMAL FARM?  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, BURN DA WITCH!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.  TAJ MAHAL of THE BLUES knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged ATOMIC 
TURTLE of THE UNHOLY who is up by 18.  Now was this a wise move?  TAJ MAHAL perhaps 
got his just desserts, seeing as he beat ATOMIC TURTLE and ended up with 18 
recognition points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights 
that BLOOD MONKEY gets in.  He fights people like RAINSONG, 13 points below.  I 
thought BLOOD MONKEY showed great skill and promise when he subdued RAINSONG.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of ARUAK CITY unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Who will dare 
fight SKYWISE, after he returned from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 17-19-1 is 
105, and has he points) GRANITE IRONBEARD of SCARLET KNIGHTS didn't know when to 
quit.  When you've got a 10-10-1, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  The ultimate 
victory is one that results in death.  CHERRY CHEETAH of knows this.  Will SCARLET 
KNIGHTS attempt a Bloodfeud?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places 
to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
ARUAK CITY is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen

Nobody's -- Clearly my manager mismanaged my battle as I should have won.  Therefore,
Mis-Manage won by mismanage and that ticks me off!  Wait until I give my mismanaging
manager a piece of my mind! -- Blue Blazes, Proud Colorific

Congratulations to Duelmaster Beef Bullion.  Wish he were Colorific. -- Purple People
Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Thunderstorm -- I fought that more like I was scarlet rather than almond--don't you
think? -- Almond Albatross

Memphis Minnie -- I am surprised that this hot cat had it in me to do that to you.  I
guess one great growl is in order rather than a meager meow. -- Cherry Cheetah

Blimey!  Beef Bullion bea champeen!  Yo ho ho!  Blimey congratters! -- Mino of Animal
Farm

Warduke -- You were obviously the best.  Yes you were. -- Purple Panther

Jugular -- I wasn't going for yours, even though you were probably going for mine.
But I remain the barking and biting winner while you remain merely a mediocre
Neverwake. -- Bark, Bulldogs

Beef Bullion -- Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn, and it will certainly be a
pleasure to personally serve you. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Damnuall -- Do your loins now feel tender? -- Tenderloin, Bulldogs

     Are you sure that's a question you should be asking? -- Ed.

Double-Tap -- Hmmmmmmm.  Was that you who tapped out?  Was that me taking the DM
throne?  Do I care?  Oh yeah!!! -- Beef Bullion, Bulldog Duelmaster

Lonnie Johnson -- Well you gave it a great try, but you were the tireder dog than me.
Good-bye. -- Dog-Tired, Bulldog Duelmaster

Paradox -- Thanks.  I am sorry that me and Jello couldn't "get it on".  I suspect I
would not have been the favorite. -- Dog-Tired, Bulldog Duelmaster

Doc Steele -- I must admit that a Bulldog 2-0 vs. The Neverwakes added to my day.
Thanks. -- Kennelworth, Bulldog Manager

Tuft Tuggers -- Welcome back! -- Gerfel's Friends

Fred Weasley -- You...you WEASEL!  Defeat me if the Sun so wills, but only two
skills?  How petty! -- Nila Sundancer

Tankesh -- So, you're back in town, are you?  Does that mean I need to hunt up some
of the loafing, worthless, inactive warriors on this team? -- Leeta, Krill Cavalry

Axiom -- You'll have to do better than that if you don't want to be Dik-Dikked again
next time. -- Dik-Dik

Virginia's Secret -- I always thought finding out Virginia's secret would a little
different than that. -- Ice

Kalidor -- You are putting serious doubts on my tourney expectations! -- Not so
Positive Polyana

Dog Tired -- I was there, where were you? -- Dik-Dik

Congrats to the Duelmaster!  He's not a TP! -- Tankesh

Strongbow -- Not strong enough, especially in a melee fight.  You could take the
string off though and go with just a stick, then you can slash, spear, highstick,
trip, and cross-check!  My favorite is boarding, good-ol' behind the back SLAM!!!
into the arena wall! -- Zlatina

Salena -- Looks like we're running into all you Scarlet folks.  I won't bother with
much else since I probably won't get a response any time soon. -- Segallion

K.K. Downing -- <sarcasm> Ooo...now that took skill... -- Branford

Tyler -- That's not exactly my slice of pie yet. -- Eliza

Positive Polyana -- It looks like I cancelled you out. -- Kalidor

Look at all the LU's in here...is that BA's at #2?!  Damn....  Oh, wait, no big deal,
they're hanging at #7 and #10 respectively percentage wise.  LOSERS! -- Tankesh

                             Death Fest Begins July 29/DM 59 T-172

     "You drive a hard bargain Hammer," responded Lord Lian Ki Na-Sul, "but the 
Gladiatorial Commission has agreed to re-open DM 58 Delarq Tor as a Slow Arena 
exclusively for a period of six months to those Death Fest contestants who fight 
their stables at least 67 times out of a possible 75 during the 15 rounds of Death 
Fest; on the condition that at least 20 stables qualify for the Illis Iron Stable 
Award at the conclusion of the Death Fest and those qualifying managers send a New 
Stable to DM 58 Delarq Tor without Cannibalizing their participation in the other 
arenas where they have active stables!"
     Hammer felt a certain sense of satisfaction as he studied the ghoulish grin 
spreading across the face of Lord Lian Ki Na-Sul; proud Arena Master of the once 
dying Illis Arena, as the DM 59 Arena Authority signed the Gladiatorial Commission 
papers authenticating the arrangement agreed upon by the two parties presiding.
     "You and the Gladiatorial Commission also drive a hard bargain," Hammer replied 
as he reflected upon the prospects of Delarq Tor DM 58 being re-opened as a Slow 
Arena with at least 20 New Stables by the Managers who fight their stables at least 
67 times out of a possible 75 during the 15 rounds of Death Fest. "I also notice the 
clause that for Delarq Tor to be open Exclusively for 6 months to the New Stables 
managed by the Illis Iron Stable Award Winners that there must be at least 15 stables 
Active each cycle. That is a fair bargain for the opportunity to battle for the 
Duelmaster Throne each of those six months before Other New Stables are allowed to 
enter Delarq Tor."
     This was a Golden Opportunity for both Veteran and Newbie Managers to pave a new 
frontier of Delarq history by qualifying their Death Fest stables in DM 59 with 67 
fights out of a possible 75; then for the price of running a stable in a Regular 
Arena, continuing to be Active in DM 59 and sending a New Team Roll Up to be a part 
of "History in the Making" when Delarq Tor would re-open for its First Turn as a Slow 
Arena on November 3rd, 2005.
     Death Fest would conclude on T-186 August 25th, 2005 allowing the Illis Iron 
Stable Award Winners enough time to be registered with the Gladiatorial Commission; 
whereupon they would be able to submit a New Team Roll Up to the GC to start a New 
Stable in Delarq Tor; be able to fight those New Gladiators in the Rookies 2005 Fall 
Mailer Tourney; then begin competing for the DM 58 Duelmasters Throne in Delarq Tor 
right out of the gate with the November 3rd 2005 T-1 Debut Opening Round.
     Hammer of the First Part had also negotiated with Lord Na-Zul of the Second Part 
an agreement that All 10 Dark Arena Monsters and 17 NPCs Characters be re-named by 
the Top Ten Death Fest Finishers. [See DM 59 T-171 Newsletter Team Spotlight by 
Hammer for the complete listing of Dark Arena Monsters/NPCs and the Official Death 
Fest Designation for which Top Ten Finishers re-name which characters!]
     Lord Na-Sul could not hide his delight at the prospects of Death being re-
delivered to his once dying arena during the Delarq Death Fest; the DM 59 Arena 
Master agreed that these Death Fest Prizes were but a Small Exchange in Comparison to 
the Profits to be made by the local Illis business merchants and surrounding 
community from the Anticipated Influx into Illis by the Veteran and Newbie 
Managers/Gladiators/Stables seeking to make History in the Delarq Death Fest.
     Nor could Hammer conceal his jubilation regarding the Call Across Alistari being 
Answered to Cross Blades and Match Wits with the Devious, the Diabolical, the 
Dangerous and the Down Challenging who were being drawn to the Delarq Death Fest to 
Fulfill their Delarq Dueling Destiny!
     REMEMBER: Death Fest begins July 29th T-172 with 25 points being awarded to 
those who write a minimum 15 paragraph Team Spotlight [including Stable Name & 
Managerial Alias in the Storyline!] for the DM 59 T-172 Newsletter [So Make Sure HAL
