Ibizond, Korga, and in between:

     Aghtamar and Zilla had argued with Fist of Kjarran, but not for long.  After
all, someone to play bait WAS needed, and he WAS a Lord Protector and therefore had
guaranteed resurrection....  The Murskan, Cadal, suggested that they all get a good
night's sleep here in Ibizond, look over the area where they wanted to set their trap
tomorrow by daylight, and then run the bait tomorrow night.  This seemed such a
sensible suggestion that Aghtamar hesitated to accept it; there was sure to be an
unpleasant catch in it somewhere.  But Zilla was for it, and even Fist, not one to
wallow in luxuries, agreed, so she shrugged and nodded.
     They stayed at the inn where they'd eaten, the Red Cow, and it seemed to
Aghtamar that the night was endless.  She dozed and woke and dozed and woke and it
was still dark.  Maybe the sun had forgotten to rise.  Maybe she was caught in some
magical time loop.  Maybe she was worrying too much.  Maybe she had insomnia.  She
rolled over and thumped her pillow and tried to go to sleep again.  Really asleep
this time.  But there were so many things that could go wrong....
     By the time morning came--reluctantly, with lots of clouds and a cold, damp
wind--Aghtamar was a rag.  Squinting at the imperfect mirror in the small bedroom,
she amended that to a depressed, grumpy rag.  Or hag.  The kind of rag or hag that no
right-thinking gladiator would want as a companion on an adventure.  She was going to
be as second-rate at adventuring as she had been in the arena.  She was just working
up a really good depression when Zilla pounded on the door.
     "Come on," Zilla urged, bouncing on her toes once the door was opened.  "The
guys are waiting."
     "Maybe it would be better if I didn't--"
     "They're WAITING for us, Aghtamar.  Come ON."  Zilla grabbed her arm and dragged
her out into the inn's tiny hallway.  "I kind of LIKE having a couple of men waiting
for us," she confided.  "Even though Cadal is OLD, he must be forty or even FIFTY,
he's a very HOT-looking old man...."
     At that, Aghtamar laughed.  "I didn't know you had a thing for older men,
     "Well, he's a Lord Protector, so he won't get any older than he IS, after all,
and I bet he knows lots of INTERESTING things."  She glanced sideways at her friend.
"I bet he knows some men he could introduce to you."
     "Uh...Zilla, I'm not really looking for--"
     "You should be.  It's great exercise!"
     "Jack told me to watch out for you," Zilla said.  "He likes you.  I like you.
Lots of people like you.  He was, we were all worried you might get depressed again.
You take things too seriously, Aghty."
     "What kind of nickname would YOU suggest I make out of Aghtamar?  Why you ever
let your folks--or Jack if it was him--saddle you with such a mouthful of a name...."
Zilla squinted at her thoughtfully.  "Maybe I'll call you 'Sunshine'.  Would that be
     By this time, they had arrived at the ground floor, where Fist of Kjarran and
Cadal were, indeed, waiting.  "I've got horses for us all," Cadal said the moment
they appeared, "and lunches packed.  Let's go, we're burning daylight here."
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     Basically, the part of the Traders' Road that ran between Ibizond and Korga was
just like the parts between Korgan and Malcorn and between Ibizond and Murska.
Unpaved, rutted, hilly, muddy in the low spots, with trees crowding close on both
sides most of the way.  Many of the steepest hills had been cut down to make the
grade easier, with the road passing through dirt-walled notches--great places for an
ambush, as Fist of Kjarran observed cheerfully.
     Cadal nodded, but he looked gloomy.  "Great places," he agreed, "but our killer
doesn't use 'em, mostly.  Out of the dozen we think are victims of the same killer,
only two were attacked at a road cut like this."  He looked up at the steep, muddy
banks with their shaggy topping of brush and sighed.  "One in six isn't significant.
That would be too easy.  Our killer doesn't seem to need ambuscades."
     "But we do," Zilla said.  "So, which ones do you favor, and how do you expect us
to get the killer to attack Fist where we're watching?"
     "There is no way," Aghtamar muttered.
     "Sure there is.  Fist sets out in a group--say four people--from Ibizond about
sunset.  As he approaches the spot we've picked as best for our purposes, the other
three turn back, leaving him to enter the target zone alone.  So far, the killer has
never attacked a group as big as four, and besides, we can probably get enough out-
of-work gladiators from Murska, gods know there are plenty of them, to do the escort.
But my figuring is that he won't be attacked till he's alone.  And if he gets beyond
the optimum area without an attack, he turns and comes back, and if he gets all the
way back through it without being attacked, we join him and call it a night and go
back to Ibizond."
     "I wouldn't like to go back to the inn and leave a job undone," Fist of Kjarran
     "But doing the job needs the cooperation of our killer, so we're not totally in
control of that," Zilla pointed out.  "This sounds like a decent bet.  Let's do it."

                             Notes from the arena champ.


     Well, here I am again!  If you are not keeping up, this is number five.  Well,
all I need is two more wins and six more arena fights to get my call.  Unless I get
the call early.  Not likely.  I would give congrats to Little Current for a well
fought match.  Innervision told me that your longspear could be deadly.  But I find
it easier on the body to get the jump and end fights before the other guy can swing.
As for me I would like to hold the Duelmaster spot until my call up.  So good luck to

                    Dirt Knap, Unknowns XX

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt MALCORN will ever be the same.  And let's see, BURGATORY fought HIGH GUN and 
gained 17 points and contributed to SACRILEGIOUS MEAT's 1-3-0.  WOODWALKER has lost 
to SOOL TONG, falling 6 points, while helping make GREENWARDENS a 3-2-1 turn.  
Defending its title for another turn, DIRT KNAP kept TRIPLE CROWN's warrior, NEIGH!, 
from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that Drake's Barbecue uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the UNKNOWNS XX stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on MALCORN, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided UNKNOWNS XX stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was TRIPLE CROWN.  Anyone 
surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that WOODWALKER from GREENWARDENS was 
MALCORN's most challenged warrior this turn.  Well now, what do you expect when 
someone like INNERVISION from UNKNOWNS XX challenges down 20 points to fight 
STORMCLOUD of GREENWARDENS?  We're not surprised to hear that INNERVISION bested 
STORMCLOUD, but I bet it would be interesting to hear why UNKNOWNS XX made such a 
challenge.  THE ONE of UNKNOWNS XX had better have a good reason for challenging down 
15 points in a challenge which it won.  I thought THE ONE showed great skill and 
promise when it won victory over GETHSEMANI ALFREDO.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Whatever bright future MEATBALLELU-YAH may have had, it's all history now.  
The manager of SACRILEGIOUS MEAT has lost a promising 2-0-0 warrior.  Is it really 
true that MALCORN has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd 
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in MALCORN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

that? -- Stormcloud
P.S.  Yeah, yeah, I know, I teach well.  (sigh)  And it's a small arena...who ELSE
are you gonna fight?

Neigh! -- Well, shucky-doo, I wish it was Yeigh this time.  Guess not. -- Woodwalker
P.S.  So I'm not inspired, I've got a headache!

Dirt Knap -- Me thinks you don't have to wait seven more turns, that is, unless
you're missing the requisite ratings.  Your win/loss record should boost you to ADM
sooner than 20 total fights. -- Sultan

To All -- Fellow managers, I humbly request your help.  My team (Ex Oblivione) was
started in Monuntial (DM 34) back in '92.  They were active for seven months.  I have
lost all early traces of them.  If any of you can help with copies of relevant
newsletters or, if you fought one of my warriors, copies of the fights, I would
greatly appreciate it.  I only have one of my original warriors left from the early
team now active in DM 60.  You can diplo me with any info here in the wonderful city
of Aradi.  Thank you in advance. -- Enigma, manager Ex Oblivione

A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,

     The last Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse was one of the closest and most exciting
contests ever held in Alastari.  Such an epic demands a sequel.  Therefore, Master
Darque and Jack Wolfspider are pleased to announce the return of the Stormcrowe
     Where?  Stormcrowe DM 45 (slow).  When?  The Slaughterhouse returns on Turn 207,
due August 19.  How can you get into the action?  Bring a team (one per entrant
please) to arena 45 and announce your intention to join the contest in the Personals.
     Rules:  This time around the rules are very simple.  Each warrior win against a
higher rated opponent (one or more points higher in the ratings) brings you 10
points, against even rated opponent 7 points, lower rated 5 points.  Wins against
NPCs or by a warrior who downchallenges are worth 0 points.  Points are doubled for
kills.  All warriors in the arena whether participating in the Slaughterhouse or not
are fair game.  Points are totaled weekly, and the contestant whose team has racked
up the most points at the end of 10 turns is declared Slaughterhouse Champion.
     Prizes:  To be announced; we're still talking with RSI about it.  Figure it will
be something pretty good.  But hey, who needs prizes when the honor of being
Slaughterhouse Champion awaits!
