Not in Zuwayza:

     The change from the sunlit courtyard to the shuttered interior of the house was
abrupt and extreme enough to blind Tankesh temporarily.  He blinked impatiently,
trying to clear his vision, and blundered after the old man as soon as he could see
vague outlines.  Furniture seemed to leap out and bite him in the shins.  When his
eyes finally adjusted to the shadowed interior of the building, he saw that he was in
a long hallway with arches opening off both sides.  The old man was just disappearing
through one half way down on the left.  Tankesh hurried after him.
     The room was bare and dark, lit only by a single candle, although the
whitewashed walls made it seem brighter than it actually was.  The old man was
kneeling on the floor, which was of tile, white tile with black and red and gold ones
inlaid in a series of concentric circles.  It looked too much like a target for
Tankesh's comfort; he supposed that was just his imagination.  He hoped that's all it
was.  He squinted at the symbols the old man was drawing in some of the rings, but
they meant nothing to him.  Well, he didn't expect they would.  Adie would probably
recognize them, though.  Could he remember enough detail to describe them to here
when he got back?
     The old man stood up cautiously, one hand on the small of his back.  He pointed
with his stick of chalk to a spot in one of the outer rings.  "Stand there, young
man, and ask no questions.  Pay attention and watch for the proper place to get off.
This is simple, but not easy."
     The elf stood where he had been directed and watched the old man take his place
in the center of the circle.  "Proper place to get off?"
     "When the rim of the circle passes through your world," the old man said.
Sliding his sleeves back on arms like withered sticks, he began to chant.
     It was, or it felt like, several minutes before he saw the arch to the hallway
pass in front of him and realized that the circle was rotating.  He glanced down, but
there seemed to be no change in the tiles under his feet.  Back up, as a corner of
the room slid by, quickly followed by the next one.  Definitely rotating, and picking
up speed, too.  "When the rim of the circle passes through my world," he muttered.
"How will I know that, unless there happen to be landmarks in sight?"
     The old man didn't answer.  Tankesh hadn't really expected him to.  The walls
blurred and vanished, to be replaced by a seascape with waves breaking on a beach of
white sand and on rocks farther out.  A wave sliding inward at the end of its course
dampened the toe of one boot.  Pleasant looking, but nothing familiar.  Another blur.
A forest of standing stones lit by bluish light from two moons, both near full, and a
smell of fresh-spilled blood.  A blur.  A true forest, trees like columns reaching
into a green darkness overhead, mist, and a smell of things growing and dying.  It
called to something in his elven heritage, but it was not where he needed to be.  A
blur that seemed to last longer than the others, there was a hesitation and a pulsing
red light half way through it.  Something they weren't going to stop for.  Just as
well, that light looked like it might be fire.  A large vaulted chamber, the image
wavering slightly and indistinct at any distance from his apparent location.  Voices
speaking akhadic.  He tried to step out of the circle, but it was like moving through
cold tar.  The view began to blur, and he forced himself outward, throwing himself to
the floor outside the circle in a dive.
     It seemed to take forever to fall, his motion slowed to the point where he
wasn't even sure he was moving at all.  And then there was a sort of soundless click,
and the floor came up fast and hard, knocking the breath out of him as he hit and

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for TOBIR.  Too bad, OTAGO HIGHLANDERS, but 
THE DOGHOUSE was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for SHARP STEEL?  LEGION OF 
STEEL's proud of her after beating TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and getting 20 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  ATROPHY got smashed by KUNG-FU MASTER, and lost 14 
points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think LIVING DEAD GIRL 
should let SABRE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the 
top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  Like, is SOLLY BILL popular, or what?  He was challenged the most 
in all of TOBIR!  He's got a 16-12-0, is that good?  For sure, I was holding my 
breath when I found out JOHN Q. PUBLIC challenged BOWSER.  After all, haven't THE 
DEATH SQUAD and THE DOGHOUSE had a long standing duel in TOBIR?  It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but BOWSER wants me to write about it since he 
subdued JOHN Q. PUBLIC.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

All -- We're back, probably sporadically at first, but now that our manager finally
finished his Master's degree he can devote more time to us.  Prepare to suffer at our
hands and please remember to tip your drivers. -- Rude Customer

Mun -- Thank for pestering me to come back. -- Wuapinmon

All -- Strange how my name seems to stay relevant over the past few years. -- $2 a
Gallon Gas

Unger the Ogre -- Cat-lover!  Take that, you big oaf! -- Catkiller

Swampy Spur -- Wow, you drowned the Mutt!  (sigh)  He was probably asking for it.  He
never did look where he was going. -- Daisy and Leeta

That Cheerful Fan was MEAN!  I don't think he LIKES dogs, and you know what they say
about people who don't like DOGS. -- Bowser

Bowser -- I smacked him around for you. -- Solly Bill
P.S.  But that's no reason to lick my face!

Surgical Steel -- (whimper)  That hurts!  Are you SURE it was necessary? -- Logchain

Sabre -- I don't think Leeta pays a lot of attention to how the fights go, so long as
she doesn't have to recruit anyone new. -- Solly Bill

Logchain -- Very sloppy, I thought you were gonna stab yourself with that spear.  My
manager really loves our style, but was confused by your tactics.  Amused but
confused. -- Surgical

Cougareat -- On reflection of our fight; it looked to me that you were aiming for my
head.  The fact that you hit it confirms my suspicion.  I have to admit that a hammer
to the skull makes thinking difficult. -- Reflective

Conan -- Soon, very soon. -- Sabre

All -- Wow, this arena is almost starting to feel 'larq like in its competition.
Goody, I was beginning to feel I was in the wrong place.  To think that I was issuing
the typical Andorak non-lethal weapons all this time for no reason.  Or maybe it was
just the Pizza Deliverance squad, I'll have to watch a little closer perhaps. --

Tobir -- At last a full squad.  Take note that I did not say 'good' squad, just
'full'. -- Seraphim

19 August 2003
     Citizens of Ghea (only the ignorant fail to note Lirith Kai is not in Alastari),
no new day is rising, but the sun is setting on just another beautiful evening.
While you were sleeping, an irksome rabble has entered the always fair Aruak City.
Of course they fought alongside our warriors, most not so treasured, as all
gladiators do.  They drank with themselves, and slept with themselves.  Whether they
had masks, who cares.
     Warriors, don't be afraid.  For years Aruak has been one of the safest cities in
Ghea, and that custom has been continually cultivated, and will continue to be by
those who have called it home for years and those who live, fight, and die by the
same ethics.  There is no contest, nor has there ever needed to be one for many
years.  A conflict of personalities has arisen, and the city has been 'invaded' by
     Any rules that are annouced will be purely for the joy of the lemmings' own
little world.  Those who are being targeted have no interest in participating except
to defend the integrity of an arena that is different from others.  Whether you
choose to come to Aruak, do it for your own reasons, not theirs.
    Competing in Aruak City has never been for the faint of heart or the weak willed.
Combat is combat, wherever you go.  Blood will flow as always, and now many innocents
will be caught in the middle, but those who defend Aruak's traditions never target
those who bring respect of Aruaki customs with them to our home.
    So ignore the private ranting announcement brought by the stuporous
Frothingsloshers.  If you choose Aruak City, do not choose it for an unsanctioned and
bogus 'contest', choose it for the tradition.  Choose it because Aruak is different.
