     The hooded magicians at the front of the ship turned to face Goldenrod and
raised their staffs, gesturing with the carved...bone.  Or very white wood, but she'd
bet on bone.  That was what Evil Magicians used.  And these were Evil.  They'd wanted
to sacrifice HER, after all.  How much more Evil could they get?  Well, they probably
COULD get more--
     Oh, drat.  They were going to do spells.  She should have realized that before
and thought of a counter for it.  If there was a way for a non-magician to counter a
spell.  Well, there must be, or else magicians would take over the world.  Even
Sheila Greywand didn't rule the whole world.  For lack of anything else to do, she
began to whirl her rope around, winding up to try another lashing strike.
     The polished length hummed through the air.  She whirled it faster, as though
under a compulsion to do so.  Sweat ran down her face and her back.  The hum mounted
to a shriek.  Faster.  Breath was fire in her lungs.  The spinning rope began to glow
with the friction of its passage through the air.  Faster.  The circle defined by the
whirling rope was a solid disk in the air.  It was a disk-shaped hole cut out of the
air.
     It was a Gate, and the shrieking rope pulled her through into another place.

     M. Chardinee glared at Old Gold.  "What is that nonsense?  We never WERE in
Caleam!"
     Old Gold waved his companion's annoyance away as though it had been a wisp of
smoke.  "It's a clishay.  It means...'where the heck are we?'  Or something like
that."
     "Not in a water-cave anywhere near Willaf," Ongus Iron-Hand said.  The Kung-Fu
Master turned left and then right to take in their surroundings.  "Not in any kind of
a safe place, either."
     "What a surprise."  The Chardinee sounded sour, but not surprised.  "That's an
active volcano, isn't it?"
     The others turned to look where he was pointing.  Neither responded.  It was an
active volcano.  What more was there to say?
     Finally Old Gold said, "Nice fireworks."
     "Fiery," Ongus agreed.
     "I don't see the Black Ship," the Chardinee said.  He sounded accusing.  The way
a person sounds accusing when he wants to cover up fear.
     After a further survey, Old Gold nodded.  "It isn't here.  I don't know if we
got away from it, or it got away from us, but the Black Ship is not here."
     "But something here will have a connection with it," the Kung-Fu Master said.
"I don't think this is a random location at all."
     "Is that good or bad?" Old Gold asked.
     "Good.  If we can find the connection, we may be able to use it to get back to
Willaf."  Ongus took a last look around.  "I don't know how else we'd get back."  He
began to reel in the cable with which he had attached their rowboat to the Black
Ship.  It was dangling limply over the side, not obviously connected to anything
right now, but with such limited resources, better not to chance losing even one.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt WILLAF will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as DRAGOONS is pushed out of top team by GOLDEN GLADIATORS, who came from 2nd with a 
4-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to 
drown for DRAGOONS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 6th.  YAMABUSHI 
stable has parlayed this turn's 2-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This 
brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  The GOLDEN GLADIATORS guild has had a 
4-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind 
of thing can lead.  And let's see, TAIKUTSU fought O PUNCHA and gained 16 points and 
contributed to YAMABUSHI's 2-1-0.  KETL PHYSHE has lost to SHOCHU, falling 14 points, 
while helping make PUNNY AMINALS a 1-3-0 turn.  Due to hers absence and inability to 
defend the throne, PERSIFLAGE has lost the title of Duelmaster.  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in 
their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  YAMABUSHI has cause to stand tall, 
as they were WILLAF's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding YAMABUSHI more than any other team we find GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  
WILLAF, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged 
warrior this turn was NOBLE ON FIRE's warrior AXE EM BOUT ME!.  More fighters 
challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that WILLAF has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, WILLAF, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in WILLAF and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Power Legion -- Only 2.8 percentage points.  Hmmmmmmmm.  A golden opportunity. --
Midas

Yamabushi -- Congrats on Shochu's "popularity award".  Glad you won SOMETHING last
turn. -- Midas and The Golden Gladiators

Persiflage -- So you think I am prepping, huh?  Maybe I am just fearful of your
unbelievable offensive talents?  Perhaps if we add our mutual quantity together, we
can come up with an offensive expert or two?  Nah! -- Golden Opportunity

Kitten Kaboodle -- Down 30 for an overmatched style advantage and an easy win?  How
Delarquan!  Va Va Voom! -- Midas

Taikutsu -- Are all the Yamamamas such pansies like you? -- Golden Bear

Kinda Fine -- Any Noble win is like finding a gold cache.  Yes! -- Klondike Gold

Weasel -- I was worried and all, but I followed the rainbow and... -- Pot Of Gold
P.S.  I could have said what Sully said, but I thought that was a little
unsportsmanlike, so I will only think it.)

Hasam Al Din -- Indeed Persiflage SHOULD want to fight Taikutsu.  The Pers could use
an easy win. -- Golden Bear

The Scribe -- No spotlight?  Sheesh!  Actually, we're cool.  How do you ever keep up
all that writing, anyway? -- Midas

Kitten Kaboodle -- Can I help it?  I'm a sucker for a cat, more especially, for a
cute kitten.  You could at least TRY not to be so blasted cute, couldn't you? -- Punh
Jently

Sully -- Well (sighing), you managed to sully my day thoroughly. -- Ketl Physhe

Potential -- Well, you did not manage to realize your potential in that match, but
you did scoop the skills.  There are days like this. -- O Puncha
P.S.  Often.

Indira -- (bursting into tears)  You hate me!  You're Not Nice!  Go away! -- Chauncy

Pot of Gold -- No, surely not!  All beans, no physhe, I promise. -- Ketl... Beans?

A few notes about e-mailed personals:

You may submit personal ads, columns, spotlights, etc. electronically, either via e-
mail to ads at reality dot com (which doesn't need any more spam, thank you) or on
the web at http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Ads.  When you submit
something, you should get back a receipt from HAL at RSI.  If you do NOT get a
receipt, your ads may have gone astray (not all e-mail makes it to its destination
any more than all snail mail does).  If you DO get a receipt, it should, in the body
of the message, tell you what arena your stuff was filed in.  Check your receipt to
make sure your submission made it to the intended destination.  Also check to see
that everything you sent made it to the same place.  Sometimes HAL, who is rather
simple-minded in some ways, will send half your stuff to another arena if the name
or number of that arena shows up at the beginning of a line.  So if the word Ti
appears at the beginning of a line halfway through your ads, all the ads after that
may end up in Ti, which is closed and doesn't need ads.  As a side note, sometimes
things move slowly, so don't wait until the last minute to send your ads and all.
If they get held up along the way, they may not show up until next turn.  Happy
writing! -- Ed.

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to welcome two managers to our fold.  Kon of
the Empire Rising, and Osiris!  May they be blessed with the blood of their enemies,
and give no quarter in War! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

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.
