Skaithvarn:

     "Bound to be trouble there," Hallie O'Dene said almost cheerfully.  She guided
her horse toward the half-hidden tower.  "It's too pat to be anything but a trap."
     "You've got that right, doll," Raoul agreed.  "But it just might be a trap for
sheep.  Let's see how it handles some wolves."
     "It might be a perfectly innocent tower," Jeri Northwind protested.
     "It MIGHT, doll, but I don't think so.  It--"
     "If it was a 'perfectly innocent' building, whether ruined or whole, I'd have
heard of it," Hallie said.  "It's my job to hear of such things.  Besides, this isn't
the first time I've been down this road, and I don't recall seeing that tower before.
Maybe--MAYBE I missed it because I didn't need it, but...."
     "But it's the kind of thing you would be looking for anyway," Raoul said.
Thunder crashed suddenly.  He squinted at the trees.
     If there was going to be lightning, the trees might be risky shelter at best.
Of course, riding down a road with nothing nearby as tall as three gladiators on
their horses wouldn't be safe, either.  The horses seemed to have their own ideas and
ran in under the trees at the edge of the road, not quite fast enough to avoid the
deluge that suddenly burst from the clouds.
     Even the trees didn't provide much shelter from that driving downpour.  Raoul
took off his hat and tried to shake the water from it, then shrugged and put it back
on.  "Not much choice--risk the tower or drown where we sit."  He urged his horse
forward.  The light wasn't good now that the rain had closed over them, but he
thought he could see a door of planks weathered to almost the same gray as the
stones.
     As they approached, the door moved.  Opened into the black interior of the
tower.
     "Probably haunted," Hallie muttered.  "If we're lucky.  If not...well, all the
vampires may not be in Leemith.  And there are robbers, and--"
     "Oh, stop!" Jeri protested.  "At least not robbers--they couldn't have BUILT the
tower since you were here last, could they?"
     "If they had a wizard--"
     A figure appeared in the doorway.  Between the rain and the shadow of the trees
now, it was little more than a pale, moving shape until they got close.  Too close
now to flee, if they had to and he was any kind of wizard.
     An old man, Raoul saw, but not bent or shriveled with his age.  Tall, lean as a
bone, with a narrow, hawk's face, hair more gray than red, wearing a simple robe of
natural-colored wool.  He made a gesture that was half an offer of shelter, half a
command that they enter.
     "Come out of the rain," he said.  His voice was deep and cold, and he spoke
Fratsfan with a slight accent like none that Raoul had ever heard before.  He stepped
toward the doorway ahead of them.  "I have a great aversion to becoming wet."
     After a brief hesitation, Raoul dismounted and moved forward, leading his horse.
"We didn't expect to find a shelter along this stretch of the coast," he said,
shaking what rain he could from his clothes before entering.  The room within was
circular and large, filling the whole base of the tower.  A fire burned on a hearth
to one side.  It looked like the part near the door had been used to stable horses
before, and recently.
     "This tower has been here a long time," the man said.  He turned back at the
fireplace and watched the women enter behind Raoul.  "But it has not always been...
visible."
     "You're a wizard," Hallie said.
     It wasn't a question, but the man bowed his head slightly.  "Perhaps the
greatest.  I am Kaldrehn of Krael."
     One of the women drew a breath in shock; Raoul didn't look back to see which
one.  He didn't want to turn his back on this man.  "It figures that a great wizard
wouldn't have been caught in the destruction of Krael," he agreed.  "But I'm
surprised I haven't heard of you before.  You don't have the look of a recluse."
     Kaldrehn laughed.  "And so I am not."  His gaze shifted from Raoul to look
past--at the women, probably.  "Not at all a recluse.  Nor a man to endure the tedium
of the dark centuries between the fall of Krael and the present, if it could be
avoided.  A man with skill enough can move behind time from one era to another, as he
wills."  His smile was not reassuring.  "As I willed."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TOBIR games.  A new guild, TOTEM, entered TOBIR with a 
clash this turn, showing off a 5-0-0 record.  Indeed, a worthy addition to the city 
guilds.  ZERO THE HERO caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested CATKILLER and was awarded 25 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, ZERO THE HERO put down CATKILLER, causing him to lose 21 
points of recognition in the process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the 
spotlight was on BLACK ORC as he bore arms against the Dark Arena Challenge of 
reigning Duelmaster ATROPHY.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as BLACK ORC killed 
the Duelmaster, ATROPHY, leaving THE DEATH SQUAD in mourning.  With bloody hand 10% 
VIGORISH has ascended to the throne of champions.  Is it that one which is spoken of 
in the ancient texts?  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TOBIR.  TOBIR, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy guilds 
is THE DOGHOUSE, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of REALLY BIG 
GUYS last week.  Busy avoiding THE DOGHOUSE?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  MOLYNEUX take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in TOBIR.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  I must report the passing of SOLLY BILL, 
veteran of many duels.  18-17-0 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays 
no favorites.  Walk proud, warriors of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS!  By striking down 10 FOOT 
RUDY you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known to all in TOBIR.  
Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Tobir -- Greetings!  I have often heard that Andorian arenas are much different than
our Delarq arenas.  I decided to find out for myself.  And since I got matched up
against five computer warriors this turn I can definitely say I'm glad I came! --
Polarius, mgr. of Blitzkrieg DM 36, 14, 4, and 3 and Blood and Iron DM 1

10% Vigorish -- You sound like a junk email, you know.  Not that you fight like junk,
but....  (sigh)  Good thing you're not twenty percent. -- Solly Bill

John Q Public -- Absolutely NOT.  That is MY lawn, and I don't care HOW much you
represent The Peepul, you will NOT walk on it with impunity.  No. -- Bowser, who
knows a dog's proper job

Hyde -- You weren't hyding, you jumped right out at me! -- Catkiller the much shaken

Abbott -- I would have won that if Costello hadn't come along and distracted me. --
Pussyfoot

Harold Johnson -- The audience was thrilled, were they.  Well, let THEM come down
here and get beaten up, then! -- Logchain

Ed. -- Thank you!  I knew you would recognize the value of having a good dog around.
-- Bowser

     Indeed I do.  Makes dishwashing ever so much easier! -- Ed.

8 December 2003
Greetings!  I would like to invite everyone to Jhans (DM 36) for the first annual kLk
St. Valentine's Day Massacre (kill contest).  We will start the contest off with the
ceremonial burning of the Andorian flag on turn 450.  (Six turns away.  Roughly mid-
February.)  The contest will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461, 3 separate victors will
be announced.  Team with the most kills, warrior with the most kills, and alliance
with the most kills.  Prizes will be awarded to the manager of the team with the most
kills and to the manager of the warrior with the most kills.  The prizes will
probably be team roll-ups.  The number of roll-ups has yet to be determined.  The
contest is sponsored by Jhans' newest, (but by the time the contest starts) largest
alliance, the kLk (pronounced "klick"). -- Polarius, mgr. of Blitzkrieg DM 36
