In the vicinity of Willaf:

     Ongus Iron-Hand, the Kung-Fu Master of Willaf, took charge.  He grabbed the
Chardinee by the nape of his neck and dragged his fellow standby to the rowing bench.
"Sit and row!" he commanded.  "Old Gold can't do it all."  He himself moved to the
front end of their little boat, reached down into the water, and grasped the tow
cable he had earlier attached to the Black Ship, reeling it in hand over hand and
thus increasing the speed with which the two vessels came together.
     Old Gold glanced over his shoulder at the cliff.  There was an opening, he could
see it himself.  And it was getting smaller, as he had suspected.  The Black Ship was
already inside the cavern, and the cavern was closing behind it.  With Goldenrod
still a prisoner there.  The gladiator wished he had time to lean back, put his feet
up, and light a smoke, that being, in his experience, the best way to think.
     And thinking was called for.  Sure, most adventures didn't give you time for
that, by what he'd heard.  Just react and react and react.  Bad plan.  It meant your
opponents were always the ones in control, which just made it harder to defeat them.
Well, he could think now, couldn't he?
     Old Gold thought.  He thought he was cold and wet, and he worried about the
monster coming back and crushing the boat so they all drowned.  He thought about how
his back and shoulders ached, and the blisters that were forming on his hands from
the rowing.  He thought about how annoying M. Kawaldar Tisinju Chardinee could be,
and for that matter, so could Ongus Iron-Hand be annoying.  He thought about whether
he could turn his Lord Protector status into a nice little tobacco farm somewhere far
to the south of here, where it was warm and there were no Black Ships.
     "Stop rowing!" the Kung-Fu Master commanded.  "Hold your oars ready to fend off
the side of the opening as we go through!"
     Old Gold thought about how annoying it was for a standby to give him orders, but
he didn't think about that one for long, because stopping rowing was a thing he was
eager to do.  He hoisted his oar out of the water, noting that it had tripled in
weight in the past five minutes, and turned sideways to be ready to "fend off" as
needed.
     He could barely see the cliff itself, but the edge of the "doors" was shining
with a hundred silver threads, as though the stone had been combed with silver where
it was split to make the entrance.  Sparkling with an unsteady light, each thread
strung with "beads" of light that moved along it like waves.  Old Gold stared,
mesmerized.
     A hand covered his eyes, and he cried out at the loss of the silver paths.
"Don't look!" Iron-Hand's voice commanded.  "It's a trap."
     "Fine time to tell me that!" Old Gold snarled.
     "I didn't know beforehand."
     This was, as the gladiator well knew, a reasonable statement.  But it enraged
him.  The urge to hit the Kung-Fu Master right upside his shaved head was a strong
one.  Stupid, if he did it, but he could think about it, couldn't he?  No.  The more
he thought about it, the likelier that he'd do it.  How not to think about it,
though?  "Goldenrod, I have to think about rescuing her," he muttered.  He took a
deep breath, sucking in damp air and the taste of...sulfur?  "Brimstone!  I smell--
Ongus, take your hand away from my eyes.  I won't look at the damned door, but what
am I smelling?"
     The Chardinee muttered something that Old Gold made it a point not to hear.  The
Kung-Fu Master moved his hand.  Everyone looked around.
     Finally, Old Gold said, "We aren't in Caleam anymore, are we?"

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Still here.  Does anybody know when I'll graduate?  Anybody care to guess?
When I ask master Noachian, he just gives me one of those looks and says "there's
always the dark arena".  Not very reassuring.
     Pot Of Gold, you were not as fun as Golden Opportunity.  I'm challenging Velvet
Glove this turn.  He beat Sully pretty good, so I have to give him a shot.
     Well, it seem Yamabushi is nuts.  Master Noachian has only one thing to say;
"Let the teeth rattling begin".  I, on the other hand have so much more to say.
First, we are not terrorists.  We are Servants of Kjarran.  Everything we do is in
His honor and glory.  We feel fortunate to be His Servants.
     Did you know there are no insane asylums in the Glorious Empire.  That is
because anyone that is found to be unstable is immediately sacrificed to our Lord
Kjarran.  Yamabushi, you're getting dangerously close to that.  Watch out for the
guys in black hoods.
     Let's all be good to each other this turn.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  POWER LEGION now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  A stormcloud is brewing over the D.S.M.V. 
guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send the team to the 
Dark Arena.  Coming up with a solid 3-2-0 outing, DRAGOONS has advanced 6 places in 
the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for KETL PHYSHE, who flew up 21 points in the 
rankings after mashing POT OF GOLD like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  POT OF GOLD was subdued by 
KETL PHYSHE and drops 19 points.  The most challenged warrior this week was 
PERSIFLAGE.  If this keeps up, our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  Unlike 
most arenas, PERSIFLAGE managed to get hers challenge off against the 13-5-0 VELVET 
GLOVE.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was 
DRAGOONS' VELVET GLOVE, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by PERSIFLAGE.  
Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad DRAGOONS?  Big bad DRAGOONS.  Big bad DRAGOONS.  WILLAF's afraid of the big 
bad DRAGOONS.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  
DRAGOONS + Weapons That go Boom = YAMABUSHI + Avoid City.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the WILLAF giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, 
and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Persiflage -- I think I understand.  You are too much for me, and none of us are
going to be very golden against your glaring excellence!  Salute. -- Pot Of Gold

Potential -- Mine is apparently lacking while yours is obviously high.  I will go to
my death bed a pauper, I guess. -- Klondike Gold

Lightning, Nature -- This was not a Legion round to write home about, was it? --
Golden Bear and Golden Opportunity

D2, Jorja?  What happened to R2? -- Golden Opportunity (obviously an "M" salesman)

Yamamamas -- Thank you for agreeing to pay for some psychological counseling.  The
boss has a daughter psychologist and is really wanting to get her some business.  You
are the best!  You get a gold star. -- Midas

Row harder?  Sounds like Old Gold.  One wouldn't catch HIM rowing! -- Midas

Lucy Furr -- You are a vicious one. -- Kore Surya

Velvet Glove -- I gotta change my strategy. -- Sully

Gluteous Maximus -- Nice comeback. -- Husam Al Din

I C Starrs -- You'll see stars next time. -- Pettifogger

Kitten Kaboodle -- Are you insinuating that I'm a MIME?  Impossible!  I would never
stoop so low. -- Punh Jently
P.S.  Never.
P.P.S.  Besides, I talk too much.

Tanoshii -- Heck.  I was not up for that one.  (No surprise, eh?)  But for three
skills, it's worth it. -- Ketl Physhe

Mockingbird -- For someone so overgrown, you're a delicate little thing, aren't you?
Good try, better luck next time, all that stuff. -- O Puncha

Yamabushi -- We look for different things in a fellow Willavan, is all.  My primary
focus is in the personals-writing and, to the extent that it exists, role-playing
aspects, and Midas is golden there.  Beyond certain extreme positions, I don't much
care how a manager crunches his numbers.  I don't like managers who act with extreme
and unvarying hostility (who does?) or victimize the inexperienced, but other than
that....  (shrug)  I run in all regions, and I try to take the arenas and the
managers as I find them.  If I find that the style acceptable to an arena as a whole
is not something I care for, I leave.  There are other arenas.  It's a game. -- Jorja

Midas -- Ah, but I bet you never even TRIED him with an oar! -- the Scribe

22 February 2006
The Olympics have arrived!

The Mordanti Olympics, having been gone for six years, have returned to the Mordanti
Alliance, sponsored by Amicitia Primoris.  Teams have competed against each other for
recognition and notoriety four times in the past.  It is far past time for the fifth
Mordanti Olympics to be held.  The Mordanti Olympics shall be held in the Mordant
arena (DM-1) from May 1st (T544) through Oct 30 (T557).  There will be a
'registration period' lasting until T543, where teams will be allowed to register by
activating in Mordant and declaring their participation in the personals.  Rules will
be posted in the Mordant arena (DM-1) newsletter no later than T543, but shall be
available online before then.  An announcement will be made as to where they will be
posted.  Prizes will be awarded to the winners.
