Fratsfa:

     Sizzling Sunflower had said that the obstacles on the way back to the true
Fratsfa, three mancats and two more ordinary men, would not be a problem and she
meant it.  After all, she was a skilled gladiator, a Lady Protector, and she had just
defeated the champion of this place, the vampire.  She was confident of her prowess,
and by the way they moved, she could see that her opponents were also confident--of
HER prowess.
     She smiled and moved into the attack, her blade flickering in diffused light of
this place.  Five opponents at once, well, she wasn't alone, either, and though
Lenpro was, from her point of view, old, she knew he was resolute and suspected that
he had considerable skill himself.  They could handle this.
     Her target was the group of mancats, Aruaki, probably, who had been frozen in
mid-change.  She judged them to be the most dangerous, and she was, after all, the
Lady Protector.  They seemed nervous, not at all eager to close with her, which
showed more intelligence than she'd expected of them.  Not that it would do them any
good.
     She grinned and leaped forward suddenly, right into the nearest one.  There was
a bright flash, almost blinding, but she didn't need to see to recognize the feeling
of her blade driving into flesh and bone.  She wrenched it free, blinking away after-
images, and pivoted toward where the next-closest had been.
     He wasn't there!  As her vision cleared, she saw that he was backing away, and
the other had frankly turned and run.  Well, she was going to get at least ONE more!
She bared her teeth in a snarl and stalked after the one still present and on his
feet.  Saw his eyes widen in true fear as he backed faster, apparently afraid to turn
his back on her.  He was blinking and squinting, too, and there was something wrong
with his shadow.
     "Sunflower!  Let him go--the portal is clear--"
     She did a little blinking of her own, shook her head but the voice didn't go
away.  Remembered finally that she had a partner here, and glanced around.
     Lenpro had both his men down, one was dead, she couldn't tell about the other.
He was squinting at her.
     "Let that creature go," he said.  "We have more important things to do.  Ah, you
might sheathe your sword...."
     She looked down at the blade in her hand and realized that it was hot gold,
bright as sunlight.  Reluctantly, it seemed a shame to hide that glorious light, she
slid it into the scabbard.  The world here seemed a lot darker after she did.  Would
it still blaze with sunlight in the ordinary world?  Perhaps not, but there was only
one way to find out.  She squared her shoulders and faced the portal.  "Let's go,"
she said.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What's that they say?  I am all the rage?  Well, I think so.  But I have to tell
you, it is all one sweet pile of luck that I am Duelmaster.  I can humbly admit that
I am not that good.  Certainly not DM caliber.  Not at all.  And I have a long way to
go to graduate--needing at least 4 more wins and lots of PPs.  I wouldn't bet on me.
The odds are long.  Ah, what the heck!  Kennelworth will think of something.
          Good luck to all.
          Raging Bull

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ARUAK CITY this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  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, TOM SAWYER fought GREEN THUMB and gained 28 points and 
contributed to IMMORTALS' 3-2-0.  IRVIN FLETE has lost to KHAKI KRAIT, falling 17 
points, while helping make KRILL CAVALRY a 2-3-0 turn.  And not without some honor, 
STABLEBOY now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of ARUAK CITY.  Can someone 
confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at 
The Bulldog Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the KRILL CAVALRY 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ARUAK CITY, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided KRILL CAVALRY stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
COLORIFIC.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that IRVIN FLETE from 
KRILL CAVALRY 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.  Is it really true that ARUAK CITY 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARUAK CITY and I've a long road ahead 
of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe
