                                THE KARNHORN ENQUIRER

Hello everybody!  I'm back.  I came back to see how things are going in the Glorious
Empire.  So let's see how things going.

DM-16 Willaf is currently the best of the Karnhorn arenas.  23 teams, 21 active.  If
you don't have a team here, you're missing out.
DM-17 Aljafir isn't doing too badly.  12 teams, 11 active.  This arena isn't doing
too badly, but it still can use a few more teams.
DM-19 Zuwayza, the Holy City.  6 teams, 5 active.  It's so sad to see the Holy City
at such a low.  This should be the best of the Karnhorn arenas.  If you don't have a
team in this arena, start one now!
DM-43 Veastian, 9 teams, 7 active.  Not doing too badly for a small arena.  A few
more teams would be nice.
DM-61 Jurine, 5 teams, 4 active.  The smallest of the Karnhorn arenas.  Definitely
could use some new teams.

Zuwayza!

Between Ibizond and Korga:

     The horseman started to turn away, but two of the hounds made a determined
attack on the three gladiators as they scrambled out of their sheltering tree.  Now,
the tree was a trap rather than a shelter.  Cadal was first out, hammering at the
nearest hound with his heavy blade.
     Aghatamar was just behind him, close enough to slash at the hound trying to take
him from the side.  The horseman turned back, just as the moon shone through a gap in
the clouds overhead.  Aghtamar sucked in her breath in shock.  There was a face, she
repeated that to herself as a litany against the unknown.  Two eyes--she shuddered
and wrenched her gaze away from them, feeling her blood turn to ice and her bones to
sand.  A beak of a nose, a hunting bird's beak.  Gash of a mouth, with an icy glitter
of fangs.
     Behind her, Zilla muttered a prayer to Sermina and struck two-handed at the
hound, awkwardly because she didn't want to look directly at it.  That hound was no
beast that ever curled up quietly before a fire or accepted a pat on the head for a
job well done.  Cadal lunged at his hound and came near to spitting it on his sword,
but the uncanny creature twisted away.  The horseman laughed, a sound which would
chill the strongest heart, and turned away again, riding up the road toward whatever
his, or its third hound had cornered.  Fist of Kjarran, most likely, but there was no
way to help him now.  They had their own problems.
     The hounds had a pattern of swirling in to attack and then out before they could
be struck in return, coordinating their efforts smoothly without needing their
master's guidance.  They must have done this many times before.  Aghtamar thought of
the other people dead along this road and knew they must have sustained just such an
attack:  the horn with its message of fear, then these uncanny beasts with their
teasing and toying, and finally the huntsman on his horse.  Not a good death.  If
there was such a thing as a 'good death'.
     While these thoughts were flitting through her mind, she kept her sword moving
as well.  The hounds seemed reluctant, maybe even totally unwilling, to close with
them, but they wouldn't leave them alone, either.  "The damned things are trying to
wear us down," she muttered.  And it might work.  She was already breathing hard, and
she could hear Zilla panting beside her.  She couldn't hear Cadal, but he was
farthest from her.
     "We've got to finish these," Cadal stated.  "Fist of Kjarran is going to need
our help."  A shuffle and lunge, a hound yelped and dodged back.  "Except they won't
stand--"
     "And if we just go to Fist, turn our backs on these hounds," Zilla growled,
"likely they'll jump on us from behind."
     "There must be SOME way we can kill or cripple these damned hounds!" Aghtamar
snapped.  "Anything that lives can be killed.  It's a natural law or something."
     "We're not going to find it tonight except by chance," Cadal said.  "And we have
to go help Fist.  If we all move together, back to back...."
     "Right!  Let's move," Aghtamar agreed.  "On the count of three?"
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     The hound that Fist of Kjarran had crippled was dragging itself down the road
toward its approaching master, whining pitifully.  If it had been a proper dog, the
gladiator might have regretted the injury.  As it was...serve the damned beast right.
     As the hound had appeared to grow when it charged him, so did the hunter.  What
might have been a big horse--if it was a horse at all--became huge, and its rider
dominated the sky.  He...it seemed to wear a crown of cold lights, or maybe there
were northern lights in the sky behind its head.  No, that wasn't north, that was
southeast.  Fist shook his own head to clear out the fantasies.  As the rider passed
the crippled hound, he cried out in a terrible voice, a word Fist didn't know and
didn't want to know.  An evil word, he was sure.  Maybe a spell, or a vow of
vengeance.  Not that it mattered!  He had the protection of Kjarran and Jayde.  He
raised his sword against the moon-colored blade that was swinging down out of the
stars above him.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hello, Zuwayza!  I'm your new Duelmaster.  Some say it's by default because Voo
Doo didn't fight this turn.  But I say I would've beaten Voo Doo if he had shown up.
I was ready and waiting for Voo Doo.  I would have hurt him if he had shown up.  So
there, I'm DM.  So, I'd like to thank Kjarran, the One True God, the God of All.
Without Kjarran, I'd still be a pleasure slave, and I'm not the looker I used to be.
Of course I have to thank my manager for giving me the chance to prove myself.  I
don't know when or if I'll graduate.  I don't learn so well.  So I'll leave my
challenges open for anyone who thinks they can take me.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ZUWAYZA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Ya gotta be quick on yer 
feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  QUASI-LEGAL OPS 
is now ranked 3rd with a 2-3-0 turn.  What's with CALLISTA?  She actually beat 
QUASI-LEGAL OPS' LADY DEATHSTRIKE, and walked away with 21 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at DRAGON JUNKIES.  LEO PANTHERA lost 16 points to NYMPH.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LEO PANTHERA will provide more easy wins...  Another 
fighter (VOO DOO 10-1-0) challenged another Duelmaster (ADARA AL ZAHRA 16-10-0).  
Life goes on.  VOO DOO was reminded on the sands why ADARA AL ZAHRA is Duelmaster.  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  ZUWAYZA thinks 
QUASI-LEGAL OPS and their 36-43-4 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  In my day, no team with a 34-40-4 would scare me off!  What's the problem, THE 
SIERRAS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, IVY!  
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
ZUWAYZA is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
