West of Fratsfa:

     Elosjon heaved a sigh of relief when his feet touched firm ground again, and he
didn't care if Fandil heard him or not.  He had been afraid--no, he was afraid now.
In the tree, he had been terrified.  Of falling.  Of failing.
     The old mage gripped his arm, held one hand to his mouth briefly to signal
silence, and then pulled him away from the ravine, deeper into the forest.  Higher up
the mountain.
     After several minutes of silent walking, or at least walking without speech,
Elosjon figured he could risk speech.  "What about Redbud?" he whispered.
     "We keep going," Fandil said.  "She may, probably will, be fine.  And she's
doing a necessary job so that we can go forward and do a different and even more
necessary job.  Let us not waste her efforts."
     "Right, right.  The magician at Mountain Home."  He hesitated.  "I could be
wrong about Mountain Home.  I only have the word of Herlas of Zensu and he's, well,
his reputation isn't exactly--"
     "I feel sure that you ARE correct," Fandil said.  "All my instincts tell me so.
We will find an answer up there on the mountain.  If we get there soon enough."
     Elosjon was silent for several minutes, trying to work that out.  Finally he
said, "Soon enough?"
     "Eh?"  Fandil brought his thoughts back from a great distance.  "Oh, certainly.
That magician has a plan in progress.  Now, plans are like snow on a mountain:  They
build up and build up, and suddenly they reach the point where they become an
avalanche.  Building pressure can be dealt with, but once you have an avalanche, all
you can do is try to survive until it's over.  If we can reach our opponent before
his plan becomes an avalanche, we can--probably--stop him.  After... we can only hope
to pick up the pieces."
     "Oh."  Elosjon stared into the darkness, not total darkness because some moon-
and starlight filtered through the trees, and thought about that as he walked.  This
old man, who had been a magician for longer than he, Elosjon, had been alive was
messing up all his preconceived notions of what it actually meant to be a magician.
There seemed to be a lot more luck, and a lot more responsibility, involved than he
had expected.  He wasn't sure he could handle it.  That thought made him pause.  Was
he going to give up, then?  No!  He would do his best, the very best that was in him
and maybe just a little more, and either he would survive the effort or he wouldn't.
But no quitting.  It was almost a relief to make up his mind like that.
     The path they were following came out of the trees into an open area.  A ghost
town, abandoned buildings, overgrown yards, a rutted street.  Elosjon stopped.  "This
used to be the village of Mountain Home," he said.
     Fandil stopped beside him and looked around.  "Odd," he muttered, sniffing the
air.  "There's something here, or has been recently."
     "What?  And how can you tell?"  The younger mage sniffed too.  It smelled like
an animal's den, a little.  Maybe fading.  And something else.  Sulfur?  Recognition
came with a cold chill down his spine.  "A demon?"
     "In general terms, yes.  I think so.  Something from that neighborhood, anyway."
Fandil was silent for a moment, his head cocked as though to listen.
     Elosjon listened, too, but the only sounds he heard were made by the wind
rustling the brush and tapping on the roofs.  Unless there was something he was
missing?  He listened harder, so hard that his ears rang with the silence.  If there
was a real sound, he wasn't hearing it.
     "Not here now," Fandil said.
     "If there was something, what would we hear?"
     "Depends on WHAT there was, but... scratching.  Clicking.  Maybe grumbles.
Which way is the castle from here?  We should go on before the 'watchdog' returns."

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  KRILL CAVALRY posted a nice gain, to come in 4th.  Everybody loves a 
winner...  Practice pays for MINUTE STEAK, who pummelled PERSISTENT BEGGAR, to pocket 
15 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, KHALHUMS DWARF was winsome, 
after beating GRAY MATTER and seeing him lose 3 points.  Can you believe it?  KIANA 
TOM apparently has better things to do as ARUAK CITY's Duelmaster than show up and 
fight!  What can be a greater victory?  BROWN NOSE has taken his place as the top, as 
ARUAK CITY's new Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last 
week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are ARUAK CITY's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of KRILL CAVALRY, alone 
and unchallenged.  The warriors of KRILL CAVALRY found their efforts at combat 
frustrated as COLORIFIC apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If 
challenges were horses, AGRAEDUS could open up a fast food joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Q:  What's a record like 9-13-1 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  This 
week's winner:  MIXED BREED of BULLDOGS!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he 
will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Congratulations to Woebringer of Neverwake, who TV'd Initiates at The Face.  We
understand he is under new management with Doc's hiatus. -- Kennelworth
P.S.  And, of course, kudos, again, to Sam for Shotgun Gandi's Challenger TV.

Perhaps I just do not have it?  Could it be the mixing of breeds?  Losing to Veteran
Mercenary "luckily in one minute" is quite a telling summary of the fight.  Perhaps
the time has come to say "adios." -- Mixed Breed

Kiana Tom The Brutal!  Poor Song Of Summer.  We are sorry to see her go.  May she
fight well in that great arena in the sky. -- Kennelworth

Good-bye all. -- Puppy Love

Veteran Merc -- I staked my foundation, erected a beauty, and booted you out! -- Pup

Convicted Assassin -- I was raging.  You had no chance. -- Raging Bull

Oski -- That was fun.  Do you have any more dog treats? -- Hound

Kiana Tom, Duelmaster, Most Popular, Chartered Recognition Leader, what a gal!  A
salute to an obvious champion!  Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. --
Kennelworth, Proprietor

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Aruak City, The Heart And Soul Of Andoria calls. --

Blimey, mates!  Me critters done 5-0!  Shiver me timbers!  Love me critters! -- Mino

Amanda Bynes -- You were the honey, and oh was it fun collecting you!  (wink) --
Black Bee

Heh, heh, heh.  Beware the Colorific masters!  I managed them to a mighty 5-0 this
round.  I am such a great manager!  This is getting boring, though.  Perhaps it is
time for me to join a Rock Band? -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Tirla Dancer -- Two in a row!  Perhaps it was boring for you, but I had a lot of fun
making you sick. -- Yellow Fever, Proud Colorific

Stableboy -- You are no match for The Thumb.  Perhaps you should just go back to
shoveling manure? -- Green Thumb, Proud Colorific

Kung-Fu Master, Veteran Mercenary, Osksi Noble, thanks for being cannon-fodder for
us.  You performed your jobs inadequately well.  Har, har.... -- Gray Matter, Brown
Nose, and Red Head, proud Colorifics

In an unusual move, I have agreed to give Mixed Breed his requested release.  He will
fight next in The Dark Arena.  He is a 15(+1)-7(+1)-17-13-9-16-5 mode basher who
worked hard to barely win on occasion, and who learned at a 1.17 skill rate.  He
leaves at 9-13-1 prior to the DA.  We wish him well in his future endeavors. --

Agraedus -- Ah, the win was your philanthropic donation to me, was it?  Well, fine!
Thanks. -- Woodrow Billit

Kiana Tom -- Somehow it doesn't seem like you should be a girl.  Oh, well. -- Song of
Summer, done for the season

Green Thumb -- Yes, well, you didn't have to stick it in my eye! -- Stableboy

Yellow Fever -- Heck, and I really don't like quinine. -- Tirla Dancer

Brook Burke -- Tcha. -- Irvin Flete

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Krill Cavalry

Carmen Electra, Puppy Love, and Butter Burro -- If you had had the courtesy to
graduate one at a time, I could and WOULD have done more.  As it is, I truly don't
see how anyone can expect me to cover THREE graduations at once.  I'm not triplets,
you know, or even twins!  I was GOING to get Carmen, lovely woman even if she does
wear fruit on her hat and shoes, a set of personalized luggage, but... three sets?
Not enough in the graduation kitty to cover that, and obviously I can't give a gift
to one and slight the other two.  So you will just have to accept my congratulations,
and the luggage can go to the next solitary graduate. -- Shinketh, Arena Agent
