Near Zukal:

     Ghenis grimaced at the wave of fear but set himself to defend his shelter,
himself, his horse, and Veleks.  The fear, he realized after a moment, was something
outside himself, something the monstrous hunter was attempting to impose on him.
That knowledge did not lessen the icy waves coming at him, but it let him set it away
from himself, make a space between fear and thought.  It would not find him an easy
victim.
     There was what seemed like a very long silence, with Ghenis in the ruined house
beside his fire, and the icy-eyed shadows outside.  The shadows seemed to be waiting
for something--for him to flee, screaming, probably.  And to be disconcerted by his
failure to do so.
     Ghenis reached up to touch his amulet again, then paused before his fingers
reached the cool stone.  It looked like he could handle this on his own, so better
not to invoke the dark powers.  But should he speak, demand what this shadow wanted
of him, or wait and let it be first to break the silence?  Better to wait; in a
contest of nerves, the first to break silence lost points.  He didn't have any
points, whatever they might be in this context, to spare.
     Sooner than he expected, a voice came out of the night.  It was cold, and
hollow, and deep as a cave, sounding distant, somehow, or not quite real.  Oh, it was
real, Ghenis knew that--out of the corner of his eye, he saw his horse flinch at the
sound.  But it was hard to imagine that any creature of flesh and blood might produce
such a voice.
     "Why do you not flee?"
     "Flee?  You think I should run away?"  The gladiator put as much surprise in his
voice as he could.  "Why?  I've got a fine location here, shelter from the wind and
rain, a fire for light and warmth.  Why should I leave before morning?"
     "Do you not fear me?  You should."  The voice dropped to a deeper, darker tone.
"I could rip life and soul from your puny mortal flesh--"
     "Sounds unpleasant," Ghenis agreed.  "But I'm a Lord Protector, and the Greywand
has a deal with Ahringol--he doesn't get to keep us Lord Protectors.  We get
resurrected on a regular--"
     "Ahringol!"  The name crackled like thunder in the darkness.  Scornful thunder.
"That foolish child?  These young gods have no sense of dignity, trafficking with
wizards as though they were mortal merchants!  Ahringol and Greywand are nothing to
me, what I take, I keep."
     "If you say so," the gladiator responded.  The statement that Ahringol, who had
a deal concerning gladiators, was not involved was disconcerting, but this was not
the time to show it.  "But if you could come here and get me, you'd already have done
it.  What's stopping you?" he added curiously.  "The fire, the steel, the fact that
I'm not afraid?"
     "Why should I tell you anything?"  The voice sounded annoyed now.  Almost sulky.
"You think too much."  It dropped to a note of menace.  "But one night you will be
without shelter, and then we will see what your brave words really mean."
     There was a stir in the shadows, a rushing wind of movement, and then Ghenis had
the night to himself.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ZUWAYZA, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking 
of laughing at jokes, observe ACT OF MALICE.  Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 4!  
Practice pays for ONETRIK FONY, who pummelled MALKIA, to pocket 23 points.  Win some, 
lose some.  Speaking of which, VOO DOO was winsome, after beating LURE and seeing him 
lose 10 points.  In ZUWAYZA, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find 
ourselves a new Duelmaster, KANDY KANES.  Word has it one team in ZUWAYZA is taking 
speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are ZUWAYZA's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in ZUWAYZA avoid ANARCHY.  The 
warriors of ANARCHY found their efforts at combat frustrated as NATURE'S WRATH 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, FIRE SPRITE is the 
most challenged warrior.  MADAME DEFARGE found herself challenged by a warrior 19 
below:  SIR AUSTIN RIPPER.  SIR AUSTIN RIPPER of DRAGON JUNKIES kept his wits as he 
lost to MADAME DEFARGE.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Justice was served as AVALANCHE fought MURPHY in bloodfeud.  Well done, NATURE'S 
WRATH!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Carny -- Got you mixed up with another manager with similar name.  A few of us
thought you shortened your name for a while there.  You seem to have good warriors;
look forward to the competition. -- Barnabas

Cyclone -- With all that dust swirling around I couldn't see a thing.  I was just

     STOP THINKING TOGS!!!!!  It's here.  Well, almost here anyway.  We're looking at
a start date of the first turn in Aradi (DM 60) following the Fall Mail-In.  This
should give everyone sufficient time to study the new ultra-improved T#%S IV rules 
and prep accordingly.  So without further ado, here is your handy-dandy guide to
winning your very own Golden Scrod (and some other very cool prizes to be announced
officially before the start of the tourney that must not be named):
1.  Each T#%S team consists of two managers.  After the tourney starts, there will be
    no switching partners whatsoever, so choose your partners wisely.  T#%S IV will
    last for 13 turns, so pick a partner you can stand for 6 months or so.  The only
    team I know of so far is last TOGS winners:  Ganolus Oakleaf/Hombre of Blood
    Related/Thieves Guild.  Hey, this is fun!
2.  The T#%S entry fee is 2 team setups per manager.  This means 4 setups per T#%S
    team.  This entry fee is required before the start of the tourney with no
    exceptions being made.  This is to ensure that nobody gets screwed if a team or
    manager decides to back out early.  To pay the entry fee either:
    a) send $10 cash/check/money order/ or whatever to me personally at:

    b) get RSI to send me 2 team setup gift certificates.  Sorry, no credit cards and
       no old teams you have lying around will be accepted.
3.  T#%S point system:
    10 points for winning on your up-challenge against another T#%S warrior.
    7 points for winning on your even challenge of another T#%S warrior.
    7 points for winning on another T#%S warriors challenge.
    7 points for winning a random matchup against another T#%S warrior.
    4 points for winning on your down-challenge of another T#%S warrior.
    4 points for winning a random matchup against a non-T#%S warrior.  Do not fight
      your team mate, you will not get any points.  Also, you will not get any points
      if you challenge or get challenged by a non-T#%S team, so use your avoids
      wisely if you think someone is out to get you.
   10 points for being the Duelmaster.  This is in addition to all points listed
      above and will begin turn 1, so prep accordingly.
    5 points for every spotlight written by any team member, 1 per manager per turn.
      The minimum length of a spotlight to receive points is 1/2 column in the
      newsletter (that's 31 lines-each line 85 characters across) and I will be
      completely firm on this.  In addition to the length criteria, spotlights will
      not be given points if they are in any way plagiarized or if they are not
      Duelmasters or fantasy related.  I will be the sole judge of this.  If you're
      unsure if I will judge something to be Duelmasters or fantasy related, then
      e-mail me before you write the spotlight and ask me.  I reserve the right to
      take points away from a spotlight after they are given if I judge at a later
      time that the spotlight has been plagiarized.
   -5 points per manager per turn every time a manager does not at least write one
      personal ad.
   -5 points for being the team that avoided the most.
     If you participated in TOGS III, you'll notice some slight changes in the points
structure.  The main things are points for random match ups against non T#%S
warriors, bonus points for being the Duelmaster, new spotlight criteria, and no
points given for being the most avoided team.
4.  I already mentioned this, but T#%S IV will start the first turn in arena 60 after
    the Fall Mail-In runs and it will last for 13 turns.  There will not be a
    Survivor format this time around, meaning no eliminations.  I will still be doing
    the multipliers at the end, however.  This means that all points accumulated by a
    team on turns 10 and 11 will be multiplied by 1.5 and all points accumulated by
    each team on turns 12 and 13 will be multiplied by 2.
5.  Prizes are yet to be determined, but I'll tell you what I know.  There will be
    prizes given out each turn to whichever team scores the most combined points on a
    given turn.  Tie breakers will go to the team with the most wins on that turn and
    then to the team with most overall points.  I have asked RSI for the same prizes
    as last TOGS which were transferring any warrior to arena 60 and renaming Aradi
    for approximately 6 months, but we'll see what they come back with.  I haven't
    decided how to split the prizes up, partly because I don't know how many teams
    will be entering yet, but I do know the prizes will be split among the top 3
    teams at the end.  I will announce the exact breakdown of everything when I know
    more.
6.  And just like TOGS III, Death Stud and I will be the sole arbiters of any dispute
    that may arise.  Whine all you like, but as Nuln told you last time, that's how
    it is.
7.  M & RR Clause (go ahead, read between the capitals):  I reserve the right to
    disallow entry to this tourney if you have a previous history of being a big fat
    mouth about everything.
     I think that pretty much covers it.  I will be accepting team entries as of now
and then posting them in the newsletters as I receive entry fees.  Please feel free
to e-mail me regarding any questions or comments at Ganolus@aol.com.  So everyone don
your best pair of leg warmers, hop on your favorite farm animal, and ride to Aradi
for the 4th kinda-annual Tournament that must not be named for no apparent reason
whatsoever, or T#%S IV, for short.  See ya'll there!
