     "And to what do I owe this dubious honor?" Arenamaster Vashku demanded.
     "Togs," Arenamaster Harkon of Aradi groused.  "The place is a madhouse right
now, and it'll go on being a madhouse for months, and I had to get away before I did
something everybody else would regret."  He shrugged.  "Where else would I come but
here?"
     "You're building heavily on one night's shared carousing in Point," Vashku
said.
     Harkon shrugged and looked around, finally moving three books, a strangely
shaped skull, and a couple of spanish onions off a chair.  He sat and stretched out
his booted feet toward the fireplace.  "Admit it, Vashku, you're glad to see me."
After the silence had continued for longer than seemed reasonable, he added, "Point
was a lot of fun."
     Vashku snorted.  "We're just lucky that Krael rose the next day and the damage
could be blamed on that."
     Harkon, who had discovered a bottle of wine in the cabinet beside his chair and
was engaged in pouring himself a glass, paused and looked up sharply.  "That was,
indeed, very...convenient," he said.  "You didn't happen to have anything to do with
it, did you?"
     "No.  Some petty wizardling managed it all on his own.  A remarkable
performance, mind you, but not mine."
     Harkon stared at Vashku doubtfully.  He liked the man, but when you came right
down to it, Vashku was a demon.  How far could you trust him?  After a moment, he
shrugged.  "I can't say that I care very much," he admitted.  "Sunken Krael, risen
Krael, it just doesn't seem to matter much."
     "Oh, it matters," Vashku said, "but there isn't much we can do about it it, so
why worry?"  He stretched far enough to grab the wine bottle out of Harkon's hand,
then poured himself a glass.  "Besides, there are more pressing issues."
     "The Clishay Gang," Harkon said immediately.
     "Not in Tobir."
     "Everywhere."  Harkon made a sweeping gesture that would have been more
effective if he hadn't drunk deeply from Vashku's potent wine.  "Everywhere."
     "If you have brought the Clishay Gang to Tobir, Harkon," Vashku said, eyes
glowing red, "you will regret it."
     "I didn't bring them," the Aradian insisted.  "They were already here."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TOBIR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  FOREIGN LEGION posted a 
nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for 
MITOCHONDRIAC, who pummelled WOOFER, to pocket 14 points.  A certain someone should 
cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 8 points to MITOCHONDRIAC.  
(Discrete enough, WOOFER?) Out with the old, in with the new.  Enter KUNG-FU MASTER, 
handily defeating LITTLE DEVIL.  With 103 points, SIPPYCUP SAM of PLAYPEN takes the 
position of TOBIR's Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in THE 
DOGHOUSE are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman 
of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of BIO WARFARE, so did that sorry team shy 
from THE DOGHOUSE Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and WOOFER is it right now. 
Most challenged warrior.  Isn't THE DOGHOUSE proud!  E COLI challenged CHICHI-HOOEY!  
Who says BIO WARFARE are just a bunch of wimps!  E COLI of BIO WARFARE kept his wits 
as he was subdued by CHICHI-HOOEY.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid TOBIR farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

11 April 2006
To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
