Valamantis:

     Ka D'Argo looked at his crew of "explorers" and shrugged.  They were a motley
bunch, drawn from several teams, managers, and arenas, people he'd found passing
through Valamantis on their way from one place to another.  Mostly from the arenas
where they were fighting--most of them were still in Basic--to some holiday spot for
a week's recreation.  Most people assumed that gladiators always stayed home,
practicing relentlessly, but that was the way to dull your edge, not improve it.  He
glanced at Arenamistress Sitalva, but she shook her head slightly.  It was his show,
apparently.
     He took a breath and began.  "You see the towers of Old Valamantis, raised by
blood sorcery."
     Everyone turned to look.
     Smeds of The Black Company, Mordant, sniffed dismissively.  "Second class
stonework," he declared.  The Dwarf's gesture took in needle-thin towers webbed
together with bridges like dreams.  "Not really stonework at all; that's built with
magic.  Was built with magic in the beginning."
     "Stupid," agreed Shamu (The Watchmen, Cliffhome).  The two Dwarves nodded at
each other.  "Unreliable.  Not like good honest stones that stay up whether you're
paying attention to them or not."
     Goblin (The Taken, Kaltos) frowned at the no-longer-ruined city.  "You mean
somebody's got to pay attention to that all the time, or it falls down?" he asked in
a voice like gravel grinding together.
     "Not EXACTLY," murmured Lavender Lance (Colour Guards, Illis).  Quickly, before
the two Dwarves could protest, she added, "In principle, yes, quite possibly.  But
nothing is EVER that simple.  What I've heard--I'm no mage, but there's always talk
of magic on Illis, you understand--is that a spell can be put into a THING, like,
well...like the sound is in a bell, maybe.  Or like the light is in a candle.  Under
the right circumstances, it comes out without anybody having to think about it right
THEN, and it keeps on existing as long as the circumstances last.  I suppose I'm
explaining that very BADLY, but--"
     "But we follow it well enough," Sputter (Joka Masher, Dwes Eg, Lord Protector)
finished.  "So there might be a THING that we could break and the towers would fall
down, hmm?"
     "Bringing the towers down again might be a good thing," Ka D'Argos interjected,
"but it won't solve the problem here, even if we could find the right spell-holders
to destroy.  That won't get rid of the people."
     "Zombies," Groblin growled contemptuously.
     "Not entirely," Sitalva said.  "We haven't gone into the old city, but we've
watched it closely, and there are some people who don't appear to be undead."
     "How can you tell?" Smeds demanded.  "Just because somebody's not falling apart
doesn't mean he isn't a NEW zombie."
     "There are live and potent Folstrom wizards in the old city," a new voice said.
The pleasant tenor seemed to come out of empty air but was quickly followed by a man
in a dark blue robe spangled with silver stars, his hair bound back from his youthful
face by a silver band.  He bowed slightly.  "Tensekai," he introduced himself, "known 
here as the Silver Mage.  Bringing down the towers without first destroying the
Folstrom would be futile, a waste of energy.  And not easy, either, as the spells
that uphold the towers are well guarded.  The important thing is that this situation,
unnatural and abominable as it is, gives us a chance to undo a great error out of the
past.  We can destroy the Folstrom this time, rather than merely driving them off."
     "Correct me if I'm wrong," Lavender Lance murmured, batting her eyelashes at the
mage, "but I HAVE read a little history.  I thought the Folstrom weren't destroyed
because it wasn't possible?  They were too strong for the Forces of Good to bring
them down completely."
     Tensekai nodded unhappily.  "That's true.  But we've had three millennia to
study further.  We have new arts and new allies to bring to the battle this time."
     "And what might the Folstrom have learned in three thousand years?" Ka D'Argos
asked.

                                      SPY REPORT

     With warriors coming back from the tournament, the commission took a hard look 
at the warriors here in the city.  DALLAS, of course, was already heading to the Isle 
of the Eye and posted a challenge to MORROCCO MOLE.  It wasn't close, but MORROCCO 
MOLE showed enough skill for the commission to recognize him as a Lord Protector.  
Joining them will be TALON and HO HUM HO.
     With the throne empty, and many of the top warriors not fighting, most figured 
it would be FRENCH GRUNT or HOFFA taking the top spot.  Not so.  PARALLAX issued a TV 
challenge to BART, killed him, and rose 30 recognition with his 4th career kill and 
edged FRENCH GRUNT out by 2 points.  The other death on the sands was ECHO posting an 
ill advised challenge up to QUINTAL.
     That doesn't stop FRENCH GRUNT from being the hottest warrior on the sands at 9-
1, but the throne does not belong to him on this day!  Other hot warriors include 
POOPIEHEAD at 8-2 and SWEATCAKE at 7-3.
     This turn saw 12 warriors move up a class while only SUNSHINE BUD YELLOW dropped 
down.  Challengers again did poorly, with up challengers going only 2-6 and down 
challengers going 3-2.  ABSOLUTE ZERO won the only even challenge.
     Quite a few avoids this turn.  COLD CUTS was the most avoided with THE SHADOWS 
issuing 3 avoids to them.  CENTER FOR OLDS, PENTARCHIE-18, CAROLINA BLUE, and 
WASTELAND received 2 avoids each.  Not surprisingly, no teams competing in the Battle 
Royal received any avoids.  The most challenged warrior was ASSUR, who lost to JOCK 
this turn.
     It will come as no surprise that Talcama did well in the tourney.  116 warriors 
entered and 13 came back with TV's or better.  I believe only a single mortal warrior 
died.  Talcama had a warrior going into round 10 in all but 2 of the tourney classes.

All -- Never heard a no contestants ruminatin fer least popular...cept'n in those 
funny arenas. -- Applejack

Neon (the fighter) -- Time's up.  You can go about your biz, there's to be no buzzing 
you.  Back...back and never mind the boobus-clabber, it's a done deal. -- Mr. Ozone

Fox Face -- Quality activations, use em in good health. -- B.

Goku -- I'm learning or I'm leaving.  Wins are nice too. -- Millie

Anarchist -- Tough match-up.  The whoest of the whos. -- Echo
P.S.  'Tough match-up' my ear.  When the pairings came out the goon-ess was slavering 
with a grin so big it threatened to take off the top of her head. -- B.

Teddy Bear Molly -- You're welcome and thanks.  I for-sure have to ratchet it up. -- 
Oso

And the first casualty is Crocodile.  13-3-9-17-15-12-15 B.  Nothing terrible about 
him, but nothing exciting, either.  The normal damage could be fixed, but there is 
moree that needs to be fixed before I run him any further.  Hmmmm... on second 
thought, I just don't see how a Crocodile bite could ever do 'normal' damage. -- 
Assur, the jaded...

Wolf -- Better hope you keep getting free fights!  I see no reason to pay for you.  
But for free, you can stick around. -- Assur, who is just plain sick of bashers with 
bad favorite learns...

So I have a Lion and a Snake left to try to prove themselves to me.

T'loi -- I think you've already overstepped the bounds of good taste!  The price may 
be right, but somehow, when I leave, I just don't feel satisfied.  And if I had to 
endure Jilesnaspeedo while I was eating? -- Assur, a Grand Slam kind of guy.

Manager -- When in Delarq, do as the Delarquans.  Rest assured that most of us won't 
play that way, but if you want to, you're welcome.  I expect back exactly what I give 
out. -- Assur

Absolute Zero -- Looks like you need to find a new target... -- Bart

Beast of the East -- Ouch.  Make me look terrible, why don't you. -- Mary

Dallas -- I'll be glad to never face you again! -- Hannah

Well, my graduation was good news/bad news.
     The Bad News:  The favorites you thought you had due to using a TC prize turn 
out not to be your faves.
     The Good News:  At least you know why you've been sucking all this time.
     See ya later, Talcama!  I'll try and make you proud one day.
-- Dallas

ranks.  He joins APEX, FLAGG, MATRIX, ASSAMITE, and RUDE BUDDHA as the 6th member.
May your chaotic wings spread disaster and CHAOS for all your days!  Welcome CHEETO!!

     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.
