Near Barikala:

     Twilight rushed westward, following the sun and leaving darkness in its wake.
The stars gave more light than city people realized, but not enough to tell Artemisia
what was approaching around the blacker curve of Barikala island.  Something was.
Probably the canoes her lookout had guessed: she could see the flicker of starlight
off what might be paddles rising and falling.  That it was to be an attack, she
didn't doubt.  There was no other reason for approaching in the darkness like this.
These waters were too dangerous for--
     Something bumped against the side of her ship, scraped along it.  Other bumps,
maybe a dozen...the canoes.  The Lady Protector drew her cutlass and knew that her
crewmen were doing the same.  Did these attackers really think she would be so
careless as not to notice their approach?
     Something showed over the rail, dark against the dark water, but it gleamed
white briefly in the starlight.  She took one long step forward and brought her blade
down on it.  From close up, she could smell it, a horrible rotten-meat stink.  It
fell away and hit the water and the canoe below with a sodden clunk-splash.  There
was no time to think about it; another one was reaching over the rail beside it.  She
cut sideways, then reversed to cut the other way at a third.  Her crew was lined up
on either side of her, hacking steadily.  There was no sound but their grunts of
effort, and their feet shifting on the deck.
     "Not everyone here!" Artemisia commanded.  "Mr. Horlon, take a half-dozen men
and watch the other rail before they come at us from behind!"
     She could hear her first officer's low-voiced commands, and men moving out of
the line.  The ones still fighting on this rail moved to cover the gaps in their
line; it was actually better now, because they had room to work.
     "These are DEAD men!" one of her sailors exclaimed.  "They're already DEAD!"
     Zombies?  Should that be possible with the Arcanum weakened?  Not that it
mattered.  Dead or alive, she didn't want them on her ship.  "Make them twice dead,
then," she ordered.
     In truth, the zombies were not hard to fight with.  You had to dismember them to
get them to stop attacking, but they had no skill.  Since her crew was more numerous,
the end was not in doubt.
     And whoever had launched this attack must know that....
     A feint?  She wanted desperately to look around for the other attack, the real
one.  But the problem with a really good distraction like this was that it was
dangerous.  If you ignored it, then the distraction became the real attack.
     Artemisia hacked at another zombie trying to climb over the rail and realized
that she had been able to see it very clearly.  Too clearly for a moonless night.
She glanced up quickly and then froze.  The pillar of light over Barikala had become
a roaring torrent, a blaze to match the sun...and there were shapes moving within the
shining column.

Approaching Niatoli Island:

     Ghenis had settled for a small, fast ship, the kind that was used for smuggling
small cargoes.  He'd been hunted in Zukal; he wasn't sure why.  Had Pelishtekan
somehow guessed that he, Ghenis, had become a deadly enemy?  It didn't seem possible,
since he'd spoken to no one of his plan, but maybe the damned Ferencian had ways....
In fact, the man must be a wizard of some kind to pull of the "divine signs" that had
appeared during the worship performances.  Which was all the more reason not to go
back to Zukal until he had found the TRUE demongod.
     There were men belonging to the cult who owned boats, but Ghenis had not gone to
one of them for transport.  No point in making his trail obvious.  Being a gladiator
gave him contacts Pelishtekan couldn't guess at.  He'd rented the boat from a man who
asked no questions, a man who had been a gladiator on Barikala before the invasion.
     Ghenis leaned back against the low cabin in the middle of the boat and began to
plan his operation on Niatoli.  Contact his teammate, Cousin Og.  Then...other
gladiators.  Potential worshippers for the demongod, when he found It.  And allies.
He'd have to raise some money, you couldn't start a rival cult without money.
Piracy, maybe, or a little treasure hunting.  Maybe raid...Monuntial.  Yeah, no one
would mind, no one that mattered to him, anyway, if he raided the invaders.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Turn 7 of my reign, and my final turn in Aljafir.  At least Tiberious will have
a shot to take my place.  Creme-A-Shun, thanks for teaching me that last skill to get
me out of here.  You are a worthy adversary, and I am proud to have gone 2-0 against
you in title fights.
     Judge says I get one fight in ADM before I retire.  Apparently, this is because
I received the scimitar as my favorite weapon.  Judge wants to see if I know what to
do with it.  Thanks for the memories, everyone.  Let's see if someone else can hold
Aljafir's throne for 7 turns.

                                                  Your Duelmaster,
                                                  Lord Protector Ghengis Khan

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ALJAFIR!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for PURPLE HEART?  
HEROESANDFOUNDONES' proud of him after beating TRASH and getting 17 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  IDUN got smashed by KARO LEE, and lost 12 points!  Oh, 
wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all ALJAFIR.  He got the 
most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) CREME A. SHUN thinks his 13-11-1 and 
studly character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  GHENGIS KHAN stopped CREME A. SHUN dead in his 
tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!  
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  DELTA DOOM was the most avoided team.  Is a 100-79-6 record really 
that scary?  I don't know what HEROESANDFOUNDONES' been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from DELTA DOOM, that's fer sher.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ALJAFIR ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Khan -- Sometimes you need more than speed. -- Creme

Pip -- Scared??? -- Barnabas

Judge -- Would you promise not to pick on Pip if he comes back? :) -- Barnabas

Dark Magician -- How can anyone condone your use of magic in the arena? -- Karo Lee
the indignant
P.S.  But privately, I have to tell you I was impressed.  I wish I could do that!
P.P.S.  You know, it may be that cursing the gods in frustration was my main mistake
out there.  It was after that I was suddenly--and without further blows--dangerously
stunned.  Do you suppose the gods were retaliating?

Blowfish -- Thing is, what it comes down to is you're a bag of air, and when someone
comes along and punctures you, that's the end of it.  Maybe you need some kind of
auto-patching kit. -- Daron El

Genghis Khan -- What happened is that those cursed Commission flunkies, anti-Mouse to

a man, have installed pesticators in the locker rooms!  I was off balance, half
stunned, when I came out onto the sands. -- Mouse Noyle
P.S.  Congratulations on graduating.

Dark Magician -- Count on it. -- Tabeta Unis

Fluffy Sculpin -- You are a one-hit wonder.  One hit, and down you go.  You and the

3 March 2004

     Mongo, aka Matt McIntosh and ex-Warden of the Dark Circle, is auctioning off his
entire collection of Duelmasters warriors and stables.  Don't miss out on this chance
to own some fantastic warriors!  There are ADM warriors available in every class from
Primus to Freshmen, as well as over a dozen Basic stables.
     Does a Slasher with +4 attack, +4 decisiveness, +3 initiative and +2 riposte
sound good?  How about a Lunger who received the benefit of a TC prize, has TVed
three times after graduating--and still hasn't maxed out his skills!?  How about a
Striker in the Freshmen class who has decisiveness for a favorite learn and the MAUL
for a favorite weapon!?
     Or perhaps you prefer playing in Basic.  Then how does a stable with four Adept
class warriors who have a combined record of 41-19-9 sound?  Or maybe a stable with
three 21-Will warriors?  Or perhaps a stable with four Initiates and a Rookie who
have a combined record of 23-6-1?
     The quality of the lots is excellent.  All you need to view and bid on the lots
is go to:
     If you want to be on the mailing list to receive regular updates on the auction,
just send an e-mail to JVMerlino@aol.com. Merlin, aka John Merlino and also an ex-
Warden of the Dark Circle, will be running this auction for me.  I just moved to New
Orleans and am likely currently stumbling around the French Quarter...because it's

Style Masters Symposium
Hosted by Hammer

     The years have slipped by and many DM Managers have come and gone since the last
Hammer's Handbook was compiled and printed.
     There is now a stirring within me to begin writing and editing yet another
Handbook with a distribution date sometime in 2005.
     This Handbook will be made available via Email with a possibility of burning the
info to a CD for distribution.
     Special arrangements will be made to provide the information via printed page to
those contributors who are serving sentences behind bars.
     The working title of this new Handbook is "Style Masters Symposium Hosted by
     Distribution of this Handbook is projected to be MAINLY for those DM Managers
who contribute information/articles to Hammer by June 2004.

St. Valentine's Day Massacre Update

     We are pleased to announce that the kLk sponsored St. Valentine's Day Massacre
kill contest in DM 36 is off to a great start.  We are also pleased to announce that
in addition to the 10 team rollups we are also able to offer the renaming of a dark
arena warrior as a prize to the manager with the most kills.  The contest is only 2
turns old and is still wide open.  There are currently 5 managers tied with one kill
each.  Anything can still happen so hurry up and get into the arena.
     On a personal note, no other alliances have entered the arena in force to
challenge the kLk dominance.  We were expecting The Firm to put up a fight for their
supposed home arena.  But, they were a no show.  Guess they proved what they are
really made of.  *evil grin*
     Perhaps another alliance would like to step in to give us a challenge.  We are
throwing down the gauntlet.  Perhaps the Chaos Inc. boys I keep hearing about would
like to step in and challenge the kLk for arena dominance.  If you don't show up,
Chaos, don't feel bad.  FAR better managers than you have been invited into Jhans but
have chosen to pass on the offer.
     So if you consider yourself worthy to compete, like fierce competition, and
enjoy arenas where the personals are as fierce as the fighting, come visit JHANS DM
36.  We're already planning our next contest, "Capture the Flag," and have a
storyline being actively worked on in the arena.  Whatever you like about DM you can
find it in JHANS.

     Has anyone seen it in print that the "Goat" is leaving the "Cartel"?  There were
some diplos to the effect of a special branch of the Cartel being formed, like secret
societies, governmental agencies and alliances certain agendas are developed.  To
obtain the desired effect of any agenda only key personnel can be used.  The "Goat"

is "Cartel" so until you see it with me announcing that I am not Cartel, remember,
"The Agenda of the Core is for you to fight for."  I hope this stops the confusion.
