     "But we didn't DO anything except fight monsters!" Lej Korranjal, the Ambitious
Guard said.  Again.  "Were we supposed to IGNORE the monsters?"
     The chief of the Harbor Guards met his indignant eyes with a cold stare.  "The
stability of our Glorious Empire," he said, "is founded on and maintained by the
principle that for each person there is a place and a proper task, and that no person
shall encroach upon the place and task of another.  The defense of the harbor and
waterfront of Aljafir rests in the hands of the Harbor Guard.  By striking at these
monsters instead of calling for that Guard, you have threatened the stability of the
Empire.  Further, you incited a mob to violence, which is a capital crime in itself."
     "But we just fought MONSTERS--"
     Shagrath jabbed him with an elbow.  "Leave it," the dwarf growled.  "This is a
no-win deal."  To the Harbor Captain, he said, "Where are you going with this?"
     The man tipped his head back slightly, the better to look down his nose at the
two arena standbys.  "That is an impertinent question from a criminal.  I am
enforcing the stability of the Empire."
     M. Konvalh Chardinee, standing at the back of the guardroom, leaned toward his
companion, Arenamaster Kharghal, and muttered, "This is a stacked deck, and you set
it up.  What are YOU getting at?"
     Kharghal shrugged.  "Unless you want to join them, keep quiet and watch."
     It was clear that wherever this was going, the place it arrived at was not going
to be a pleasant one, so the Chardinee closed his mouth.  But this behavior on the
part of the arenamaster was not going to inspire confidence in any of the warriors
under his control.  He returned his attention to the Harbor Captain, who was winding
up a harangue and getting down to verdict and sentence.
     "So," the Captain said, "since your intentions were 'good' so far as they went,
it is judged appropriate to offer you mercy.  You have a choice:  You may serve the
Great Kjarran at the next sacrifice, or you may serve the Glorious Empire in a more
extended fashion under a one-year geas to the Lord Bazidhar of Salamar.  What say
you, criminals?"
     "We'll serve this Bazidhar, of course," Shagrath said.  "As you knew we would."
     The Chardinee glanced sideways at Kharghal.  Bazidhar was one of the
arenamaster's cronies; they went carousing together.  Although Kharghal didn't know
that Konvalh knew, and the Chardinee did not propose to tell him.  The Society of
Chardinee reached into many unlikely places across the length and breadth of
Alastari, but that was no reason to advertise how much information flowed through
their network.

     Shagrath put his hands on his hips and glared at Lord Bazidar.  With bushy black
eyebrows and a big nose, not to mention a typical dwarvish beard, the assassin did
"glaring" very well.  "Okay," he said, "you've got us.  Now tell us what you wanted
us FOR."
     Bazidar smiled, a slight movement of thin lips that did not make him look
friendly.  "I was told you would be impertinent.  Not that it matters."  He leaned
forward and flipped open a scroll on the table that separated him from the two arena
warriors.  It was a map of the northern part of the Karnhorn Empire, from east of
Aljafir west as far as Kurukar.  "I am the Warden of what is, since the secession of
Kurukar, the Western Marches.  The border I defend is continually assailed by
brigands and beasts and... I am not sure what.  Some are natural hazards that have
existed forever, such as the bears and wolves who prey on isolated farmsteads."  He
shrugged.  "That is the Way of Things, and those who dwell on the edges of settled
lands will always face them."
     Korranjal muttered something under his breath, which Shagrath did not ask him to
repeat.  It was probably inflammatory.  The Guard had come from just such a border
area and had said, more than once, that it wasn't "right" that predators should be
left to prey on the border farmers.
     "The brigands...."  Bazidhar frowned.  "Some are wild Shews and others of that
ilk, some are, I believe, refugees from Kurukar.  Some are alone, and others show
sign of being organized."  He met the dwarf's glare with his own.  "I will not have
organized brigands preying on MY border.  You will go among them in the character of
fugitives from Aljafir, discover who leads the bands and where they are based, and
then return to guide my soldiers to the attack."
     "What about the monsters or demons or whatever that you almost mentioned?"
Shagrath asked.
     "That is a separate problem.  One thing at a time.  When I can be sure my
soldiers will not be attacked by brigands, then I can decide what to do about
monsters.  Or whatever they might be."
     "You say we are to go as fugitives," Korranjal said now.  "Yet your men patrol
that border we have to cross, do they not?  How are we to pass them?"
     "Very carefully.  The arena resurrects those who are so inept as to get
themselves killed.  Be assured that I will not waste my resources in that fashion."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yes, it is The Lord Of The Teeth again on top of Willaf.  Crowned that Cat Man
Do quite well, thank you!  Good ole champion Gold Filling once again rules the roost
in Willaf, just as everyone expected would happen.  Sometimes this whole gladiator
thing is "ho hum", you know?  Kinda makes one numb like Novocain.
     Holy drill bit, was The King (Midas) irate last turn with The Golden Gladiators
first ever 0-5!  He was hot!  What can I say, but that some days you get the abscess,
and some days the abscess gets you.  Get my meaning?  Hopefully he is back into the
laughing gas with our 3-1 this last round, and I'm numbingly glad I did not have to
stand up to the lambaste our loser got.  Worse than having a tooth pulled!
     Hey, but it is all over but the grinding for me.  I'm a Lord protector off
retirement and la la land.  Like a dose of Dragon.  I came.  I saw.  I had fun.  I
conquered.  Now I pull out the hammock and dump the false teeth into a glass of
bubbly.  Sayonara.
              Gold Filling, multiple (ho hum) Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, 
maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to BLOODBANE CLAN.  Now I 
can't insult CAT MAN DO, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who was the warrior seen 
charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in WILLAF avoid ARENA FELINES.  The warriors of ARENA 
FELINES found their efforts at combat frustrated as GOLDEN GLADIATORS apparently had 
more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, KINDA FINE could 
open up a fast food joint!  Mismatched by 12 points, KINDA FINE defeated XENOPHOBIAC. 
Is this really worth noting?  I thought XENOPHOBIAC showed great skill and promise 
when he was defeated by KINDA FINE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Justice was served as NARCOLEPTIC fought GOLD RUSH in bloodfeud.  Well done, 
D.S.M.V.!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in 
the arena.  A certain tavern in WILLAF would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in WILLAF is the highlight of my life.  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 WILLAF 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Cat Man Do -- We thoroughly enjoyed your DM column.  Laughed our butts off! - Midas
and The Golden Gladiators

Congratulations to our newest Lord Protectors--Cat Man Do, and our own Gold Filling.
-- Midas

Editor -- Goldenrod, can indeed scream!  And at the simplest of startles!  We count
it as a blessing that she is out screaming on a rowboat, rather than in the middle of
the night at the guildhouse. -- Midas

     Ah, but she might not agree about that.... -- Ed.

Stilcho -- You went, and went, and went--like the Energizer Bunny.  All I had in me
was thirteen.  Salute. -- Golden Arches

DSMVers -- Mea culpa!  We Golden Gladiators all apologize for the untimely arena
death of Kleptomaniac at Gold Rush's hand.  Even though it was a GG challenge, I can
assure you we are not into that type of bloodshed.  We pray that Kleptomaniac fights
well in That Great Arena In The Sky, and that your replacement warrior is a godling.
-- Midas and The Golden Gladiators

Cat Man Do -- My turn, Pal! -- Gold Filling

Ketl Physhe -- It wasn't THAT unbelievable! -- Golden Opportunity

For those who have the lease bit interest in these things:

Midas -- Thank you for your welcome.  It is only by chance that I have a style such
as Stilcho's on the sands when I come back to reclaim my arena.  Stilcho has been a
useful tool to me, and I, in my infinite generosity, have granted him a few more
fights. -- Kurd

Fluffy -- I hope you are ready for me to bore you to death.... -- Stilcho

O. Fish -- Bwaaaaah, Hoooo, Bwaaaah, Haaaaaa.  You suck.  Go fight by torch. -- Jihan

Golden Arches -- Too bad you couldn't hit harder, eh, and last a little longer? --

Welcome Shive and Vanda, to the sands of Willaf.

Golden Opportunity -- For what, physh stew?  (sigh)  There are days like this. --
Ketl Physhe

Kurohana -- Gosh, I'm all excited, so close to a winning record! -- Punh Jently

Tanoshi -- How tedious you are.  You don't know ANY good puns. -- O Puncha

Jihan -- I was going to say "ah, new blood," but it turns out to be the same old
blood after all:  mine. -- O. Fish

Lord Protector Cat Man Do -- At least you aren't one of those beast people, the ones
who call themselves Aruaki.  But even so, I am instructed to say that we have no
lands today.  I'm not sure exactly what the problem is, but I believe it has
something to do with taxes.  Please accept my apologies and congratulations. -- Tevik
Zokharj, Distributor of Lands
P.S.  No!  I AM a Distributor of Lands, I must do it!  My very identity is tied up in
this.  I can offer you a reserved seat here in the arena.  Other people will sit on
it in your absence, of course, but if you show up, they have to move.  It isn't much
land, about three feet square, but it is something.

Lord Protector Gold Filling -- I see that you are an orc.  Since it is widely known
that orcs have no use for lands, will you be content simply with a reserved bar
stool?  Until you fall off of it, of course, at which point you will be thrown out
into the alley and some true human will take over the seat. -- Tevik Zokharj,
Distributor of Lands

To those once of Willaf -- It's time to come back to the sands.  I'm back,
exclusively at Willaf.... -- Kurd the Vivisectionist, Your Better

Magic Man -- You are a fellow Canadian, are you not?  Where do you hail from?  I live
in Kelowna, B.C. -- Maximillian, 8,13, 28, 47, 54
