On the Isle of the Eye:

     "Four steps and we're lost," Senator Sedalia muttered.  "This is worse than
politics."
     "They do say that the Isle is larger than the Lake and touches other waters,"
Gissanniah answered.  "What do we do?  Just start walking until we get somewhere--
anywhere?"
     "It may come to that, but I'm not ready to give up yet."  The senator looked
around again.  "Hmm.  How about if I stand still, right here, and we hold hands--no,
that might not give us enough distance."  He undid his necktie and handed one end to
his companion.  "I'll stand here and hold my end, you go out to the farthest end of
the tie and your arm--no fear of it breaking, silk is very strong--and walk around me
in a wide circle.  We haven't come so far as all that.  You should be able to reach
the edge of the woods at some point on that circle.  Then you stand still and tug on
the tie until I join you."  Of course, it was possible that the edge of the woods was
no longer four steps away, or that any edge they found would be the one they'd come
from.  You could never tell, with magic.  But since neither he nor Gissanniah could
do anything about those possibilities, the senator saw no point in mentioning them.

Convincia:

     "That's a big fire," Lenpro said.
     Fandil squinted ahead.  It was certainly a lot of smoke.  "Maybe... they're
burning brush in the fields before planting?" he suggested.
     "Late in the season to plant."
     "It's been a wet spring, planting has been delayed in a lot of places."
     "Maybe," Lenpro said, "but that smoke is rising over the city of Tarrgir.  It
might be buildings burning, instead of brush."
     "If that's so, perhaps we can help them put the fire out," Fandil said.  He
urged his horse to a faster pace.
     "If they want the fires put out," Lenpro muttered.  "I have a feeling about
this."

Andor:

     Herlas backed up two steps before he even thought about it.  "You can't parade
that golem through the streets and claim it's the king!"
     Hesselbod raised his eyebrows.  "Of course we can."  He gestured at the golem
who stood obediently, dressed in royal garments and awaiting a command.  "The artist
who modeled the face and figure has caught the appearance of the last king quite
well, the artificer who constructed the golem was the best Lord Korneth could hire,
and with your magic to cast a glamor over the whole, no one will doubt that this
truly is the king."
     Herlas gaped in silence for a moment, stunned by the magnitude of Lord Korneth's
ambition and of the royal scribe's misunderstanding.  "The best illusions will not
fool everyone," he said, "and without illusion, that is obviously a golem.  You'll
have a firestorm of outraged citizens--"
     "That is not your concern," Lord Korneth said coldly, entering the room.  He
dismissed the scribe with a flick of his eyes.
     Herlas turned to face him squarely.  He was not afraid of Korneth of Sengir, who
had come from nowehre and styled himself Chief Minister of Andoria, but he was deeply
wary.  There was too much unknown about this man for anyone to feel relaxed around
him, starting with where Sengir might be found and what Korneth wanted with the
Andorian states.  Herlas had thought, originally, that Korneth was driven by a simple
ambition to rule.  Ambition, he could understand, and as the man was no magician,
their goals should not conflict.  Now, though... he wasn't sure.  Ambition, yes, but
not simple.  "Why not produce the real king?" he asked.  "Even drugged or enspelled
to be your puppet, he would be more convincing than that golem."
     Korneth's lip curled in a sneer.  "The 'real king' no longer exists, and he was
pathetic to begin with."  He dismissed the point with a wave of his hand.  "And it is
not your concern.  Do not think to usurp authority to question or command.  Your only
business is to do as you are told.  In this case, to cast the glamor."

On the Isle of the Eye:

     Sedalia waited, holding one end of his tie and turning slowly in place.  He was
fairly sure he was still in the same place.  And beginning to suspect that he had
made more than one complete turn.  Blast these trees!  They all looked alike.
Somewhere out of sight, Gissanniah hesitated.  Not the first time.  What was she
seeing?  The young woman was observant and intelligent, but he wanted to be seeing
for himself.  Still, he shifted his grip to accomodate another turn, she was the more
nimble of the two of them and better suited to dodging around trees.
     Two definite tugs.  The signal.  Senator Sedalia began to follow his silk tie
through the trees.

Tarrgir:

     Half the city was in flames.  The two managers sat their horses on the rise at
the edge of the river valley, looking down at smoke and ruin.
     "At this point, there isn't a thing we could do," Fandil said.  He shook his
head.  "Not even with magic.  They seem to have it under control--not spreading
further, at least--but I can't imagine how it spread so fast!"
     "Arson," Lenpro said.  "Fires started in several places at once."  He squinted
down at the city.  "Looks like the Military Academy was about in the center of the
burned area; it's all gone now."
     "I don't understand how people can do that," Fandil muttered.  "Arson--blind
destruction--"
     Lenpro was silent for a long moment, then started his horse forward and down the
slope.  "Maybe not so blind," he said over his shoulder.  "If someone wanted to
destroy the Andorian League, it looks like there's been a good beginning made."
     Fandil urged his horse to catch up.  "Just burning down the Academy won't--"
     "And driving a wedge between the Aruaki and the normal humans," Lenpro reminded
him.  "And more things, I have no doubt, that we haven't found yet."
     "Who would want to destroy the League, and why?" Fandil demanded.  "Surely even
the Delarquans or the Karnhorns wouldn't--"
     "Why not?" Lenpro asked.  "And there are probably other enemies out there that
we don't happen to know about."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Chief Sitting Bull is holding a pow wow at the moment and cannot write this
column.  I said I would say a few words for him, so I will.  "Few words".
     I'm funnier that The Chief, huh?  Are you laughing?  A smile a day keeps the
doctor away.  I think?
     Some facts for you.  Here are the starting stats of the five Bulldog members.
They are, of course, jumbled up and placed in numeric order.  Kennelworth won't let
me give you the exact stats of a warrior until graduation.  (Or death.)
ST   10, 11, 11, 11, 17
CN    9, 14, 15, 17, 19
SZ    7,  9, 13, 15, 16

SP    3,  4,  6,  8, 12
DF    6,  8, 10, 14, 17
We may not be fast, but we sure have will-power!
     Good luck to all.  May The Heart And Soul Of Andoria treat you well.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ARUAK CITY a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  Now keep the taverns open 
late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for KRILL CAVALRY, whose 0-5-0 this turn 
dropped them by 5 into 12th.  IMMORTALS stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 
3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 5th place.  Good work, guys!  
The ANIMAL FARM guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  
You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, ECRU ELEPHANT 
fought GALLOWS POLE and gained 29 points and contributed to ANIMAL FARM's 3-1-0.  
TWOFLOWER has lost to TOM SAWYER, falling 15 points, while helping make TECHNO 8 a 
1-4-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between DELIA'S GONE and our Duelmaster 
CHIEF SITTING BULL, making a challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have 
failed, and CHIEF SITTING BULL remains ARUAK CITY's top warrior for another turn.  
Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Bulldog 
Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  IMMORTALS has cause to stand tall, 
as they were ARUAK CITY's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding IMMORTALS more than any other team we find BULLDOGS.  ARUAK CITY, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take 
notice that DELIA'S GONE from ELFQUEST was ARUAK CITY's most challenged warrior this 
turn.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  NIGHT'S GUARDIANS has some 
questions to answer.  Like 'why did you kill your fighter, SCARY GHOST, who had a 
record of 2-0-0?' A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to 
cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Welcome one and all to Aruak City.  Rumors were that both Ichabod and Street Legal
were returning?  The Heart And Soul Of Andoria, Aruak City, is a haven for all.
Welcome back.  Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Kennelworth

Delia gone.  Heap bad.  Her makem good squaw. -- Chief Sitting Bull

Sly Apparition -- There were certainly a lot of weapons breaking in your Sly-Chief
fight.  The Chief was very, very lucky.  Good luck on your rematch. -- Kennelworth

Tarsis Dolphins -- Great point round!  Way to win Top Team On The Move! --
Kennelworth and The Bulldogs

Pony -- A filet win meant that cows are more valuable than horses?  You think? --
Filet Mignon

Hey, Flute!  Did you think I would be tender too?  (chuckling rather than barking) --
Bark

Sarah Bellum -- And to think I thought you loved me?  Well, really, I avoided, but it
apparently didn't work.  Well done.  (both the challenge and the execution) -- Puppy
Love

Gravetwist of Ethereal Angels -- Thanks for the challenge.  I like your name and the
team name.  Welcome to Aruak City.  (Well, that wasn't such a positive welcome, was it?) -- Leather Hide

Congratulations to our own Chief Sitting Bull, Duelmaster Again.  Is that five?
Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn.  Salute. -- Kennelworth

Hey, you, Walk The Line, I was glad to be there for your last walk.  It was a long
one.  Salute. -- Lilac Lizard (a real fan of The Man In Black)

Wow!  Kung Fu Master, you were too much for this big lout!  I wish I knew how you did
that! -- Ecru Elephant

Sly -- I am sorry, in a way, that our matchup got in the way of another duelmaster
fight for you.  I am surprised that I lucked out a win over you, despite the great
and valuable skills and experience you have.  Good luck. -- Silver Snail

Me critters bea fitin bloody fine.  Aye. -- Mino

What?  That Khalhums Dwarf beat me too?!  He's a ringer, I'll tell you.  Just you
wait until my Prince comes along, you monster!  Disgusting things going on in this
little burg! -- Snow White, Proud Colorific

Yikes!  I drew Horsefly?  I can't count all the experience difference in that fight.
And it sure showed, because the dang fly almost bit me to death!  I guess I didn't
suck up enough to either Horsefly or the RUGS? -- Brown Nose, Proud Colorific

Heh, heh, heh.  That Working Man thought he had more endurance than this poor ole
gardener?  Heh, heh, showed him! -- Green Thumb, Proud Colorific

You Colorifics had better get with it or you, too, will be on the food table.  Two
losses in the last two rounds to a dwarf?  A mere Khalhums Dwarf?  You Colorifics
embarrass me!  I will give credit to Green Thumb, but NO MORE! -- Purple People
Eater, Proud Colorific Manager (who eats more than purple people)

All -- Sorry for my dismal performance thus far.  I'm just prepping Gravetwist for
future tourneys and DAing the drags on my team.  Hopefully I can get some more funds
later and run a full and regular stable. -- Master Darque, mgr. Ethereal Angels

Bark -- As some western writers would say, you're definitely a man with the bark on.
And mighty rough bark at that.  Ouch. -- Jon Flute
P.S.  Not to mention the biting.

Filet Mignon -- A good steak like you should not be tough. -- Pony

Brown Nose -- Stung you on it! -- Horsefly

Tremor -- I hate it when people are bigger than me to begin with, and then when the
big bum is a bully, well! -- Stableboy

Soul of Nahum -- A pair of skills is always useful. -- Song of Summer

We look at the Dead listings and see, turn after turn, all these losers getting sent
to the Dark Arena, and we wonder, Why didn't we get to fight them first? -- the Krill
Cavalry

Lilac Lizard -- I have delicate nerves. -- Pony

Ecru Elephant -- Yep, he stepped on me once.  I've never been the same after that. --
Pony

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
