     Amazing jolts of lightning.  Thunder to shatter a drum.  Rain so heavy it was
like being under water.  It was probably still night--the gods knew it was dark
enough, but nobody could be sure since the hourglasses had stopped and all the
candles had gone out after a particularly extravagant display of lightning.
     Alourin blew in and then threw her weight against the door to shut it again.
"It's horrid out."  She combed a few small fish out of her hair with her fingers and
shivered.  There was a faint tapping at the door, audible only because it seemed to
carry its own umbrella of silence with it.  Alourin glanced over her shoulder
uneasily, then grabbed the nearest chair and wedged it under the doorknob.
     Autumn Leaves, who had been sitting in the chair, picked herself up off the
floor and scowled.
     "So."  Raven Eyes, a teammate who had retired from fighting on the Isle (once
you've seen a couple hundred fights, she said, you've seen enough), crossed her arms
and looked sternly at Alourin.  "We warned you!  Jorja warned you, even!  You start
being nice to the monsters in the lake, and they'll follow you home.  If it was just
your home, I'd say 'go ahead, fill it with monsters, see if I care'.  But it isn't.
Other people have to live here, too, you know.  If this is another one of those
multi-limbed blobs--"
     "It isn't!  It's, well, it's a sort of...serpent.  A lake serpent.  But I didn't
invite it home, honest!"  She glanced down at the floor and moved her feet out of the
pool of water oozing under the door.  "I was just, you know, down by the lake,
looking at it."
     "Looking at it.  In the rain."  There was a world of disbelief in those flat
words.
     "I WAS.  Honest.  I didn't even SEE any monsters.  I figured all the monsters
were..." she gestured vaguely, "down deep or something, because of the rain."
Alourin stepped further from the door, out of the rapidly spreading pool.  When
something tapped on the outside of the door again, she flinched.  "It's the LAKE.
The lake followed me home!"

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     First of all I would like to thank "Fast Track" for a well fought and exciting
fight, and the throne.  Maybe the next duel will bring what you seek.  I've taken my
share of losses and infirmary time.  I deserve to rest on this throne for a spell.
My challenge goes to Chainsaw Vigilante this turn, if for no other reason than he has
a lot of points and should be given the title fight.  But all fights are welcome as
my record shows.  See ya in the sands.

                    Blood Bud

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RIZTAB brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, DRYNN'S PRETTIES, since 
THE LAWMEN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps 
up, FOREIGN ACCENTS, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 7 in 
the rankings?  DRAGON RIDERS turned their 3-1-0 turn into a 4th place rank in the 
listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm 
impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, BLOODSUCKERS, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
BASS REEVES win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BASS REEVES beat 
SHELLI and SHELLI lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  BLOOD BUD challenged 
CHAINSAW VIGILANTE for RIZTAB's Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And if 
variety is the spice of life, RIZTAB may be getting bland, as BLOOD BUD stays top dog 
in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some 
of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  DARKMOON was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like ARENA FELINES avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, BADGER was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that 
ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RIZTAB's 
morgue.  More variety.  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone else.  
Anyway, this turn it came.  CROUCHING TIGER's 14-7-0 has earned him the Dark Arena.  
And sending CROUCHING TIGER to the Dark Arena was supposed to be one of your better 
ideas, ARENA FELINES?  Gee, HIGH JINKS, ain't it past due for sending TWANGY TONYA 
Dark Arena?  What took ol' '9-6-1' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  Not that I'll be 
buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to see PLATO and DREAMERS at The Swinging 
Aardvark tonight celebrating their bloodfeud victory over THE RED SCARE.  We're all 
going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that 
later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of RIZTAB.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

All -- Salute her as she goes.  Tonya, the lady...well...she gave well.  Took well,
too...I mean...tough!  That was one tough broaaa...uh, lady.  Who could surely take a
shot. -- Jondeaux

Odie Oblivion -- Solemn occasion to say "good fight." -- Fen

Scooby Doom -- How can you be a HOUND of Hell when you're a CAT?  It says so right
here:  a werecat.  Oh, does that mean you WERE a cat, but a doom came along and
changed you?  How AWFUL!  You must hate yourself!  That's so HORRID.  You have my
complete sympathies. -- Alourin

Alex Schimmelfennig -- Isn't that just LIKE a Dwarf!  You come along with a name
bigger than you are, and while I'm hunting for you down there, you KILL me!  Dwarves
have NO social graces.  My momma always said so, and she was RIGHT. -- Ghost of
Noreen
P.S.  I will NEVER teach you five skills again.  NEVER!

Twiggy -- Sinister, very sinister.  To start with, you're too thin.  No figure at
all.  That's bad.  That indicates an intention to disguise yourself as a boy, which
is anti-feminist.  Then, you're taller than I am.  GROSSLY unfair, since I'm a Shew
and you're not.  And you're Rirorni, one of those killing, pillaging nomads!  And to
top it all off, you're left handed!  I call that sinister. -- Sugar Jane

Dave Cook -- Always, er, nice to see a familiar face, even if you ARE a Karnhorn.
And you probably can't help that.  I mean, it was your parents who made you a
Karnhorn, right?  But you left, so it's okay.  Unless you're a spy.  If you're a spy
for the Karnhorns, don't tell me, because I want to retain my illusions. -- Tillerita

Khazrho the Zukali -- Surely you're not REALLY Shewish?  You're so short! -- Autumn
Leaves
P.S.  I consider that fight an act of performance art, and one that not many
gladiators could achieve:  for an eleven fight warrior to lose to a low-ranked
standby takes talent.

Gratch -- Well, come around our guildhouse some time, and I'll treat you to the best:
made with special dark chocolate, a hint of cinnamon, and spiked with cream. -- Sugar
Jane

Congratulations to Crouching Tiger. -- Everybody over at the Sweet Magic guildhouse

Mario -- You're feisty.  I like that.  Wear armor or learn to dodge, you'll live
longer. -- Lilliana

Invincible Luigi -- Huh, wha...the fight's over already?  When did it start? -- Krusk

Luigi -- You're tough.  It usually only takes one hit for me to win. -- Pheonix

Fuzzy Motto -- Huh?  No!  I don't want to talk about it!  The voices, please stop the
voices...oh, sorry.  I'm fine, really I am.  Let's not do that again. -- Kragor the
Mad
