     Raoul looked around, stunned.  He hadn't formed a clear picture of what he could
expect to see in Point, but it hadn't been anything like this.  It looked like the
aftermath of disaster, before anyone had started to clean up.  The kind of aftermath
that left people wondering if it was worth cleaning up.  There were only a few
buildings left standing, stone ones on the highest ground near the arena, and they
were battered looking.  Elsewhere houses were broken open as though by earthquake, or
reduced to a tangle of fire-blackened beams.  And he could see weeds growing up
through the rubble, so it hadn't just happened.  Whatever "it" was.  What had been
the waterfront simply wasn't there any more.  No docks or sheds, no boats.  Not much
     Raoul took off his bowler, looked into it as though in search of answers and
found none, then put it back on.  "Do you think Peranis knew anything about this?"
     Berdan shook his head.  "I have no idea what Peranis knew.  I'd heard that Point
had fallen on hard times, but nothing prepared me for this!"
     "Well, if Peranis wasn't prepared, he'd've gotten a shock.  And he might be
having trouble getting a boat to take him wherever he plans to go...."
     "He might still be here!" Jeri agreed.  "I didn't think we'd catch up with him
easily, but...."
     "We haven't caught up with him, not yet, doll," Raoul warned her.  "He might be
here in Point, and he might not.  Even if he came here, and we don't know that for
sure.  We look around, and we ask questions.  Carefully.  Don't forget that Peranis
might have friends here."
     "We can ask at the arena," the gladiatress said confidently.  "There's bound to
be someone there still.  Arenas are never completely abandoned, are they?"
     "I would abandon that one," Berdan muttered, glancing around the wreckage of the
town distastefully.  "This whole town should be abandoned."
     "Ah, don't say that!" someone protested.  "We're doing the best we can with the
materials at hand, and we'll get this place cleaned up and back on its feet in no
time.  Well...in not too long a time, a year or three...."
     The three travelers turned.  They were being addressed by a man in an extremely
dirty carpenter's apron worn over clothes that were cleaner but heavily patched.
"I'm Ketl Chakor," he said.  "I am--I was, I mean, the public relations agent for the
Point arena."  He glanced at the battered walls of the arena sadly.  "It's such a
come-down for it to be used as a cattle pen, when we had so many great warriors
     "Cattle pen?"  Jeri clapped both hands over her mouth to stifle an incredulous
     "What happened to the town?" Raoul asked quickly.  This public relations agent
looked like a laugh at the arena right now would put him in tears, and thus prevent
him answering questions.
     Ketl Chakor frowned, his eyes darting quickly from side to side to make sure
that no local person was within earshot.  "Greed," he muttered.  "It was destroyed by
greed--and *I* think it was the Assassins' Guild that planted the rumors and set it
all off."  He gestured toward the lower slope, where a pile of tumbled rocks might
once have been almost anything.  "Rumors of treasure hidden in the Ogre's Tomb.
Fools!  When they opened it, the monster got out.  And then..." his gaze slid
uneasily toward the shore and the cold-looking waters of the Trier, and his voice
dropped, "then something came out of the lake.  The whole town was destroyed in a
night of storm and blood.  Many of the gladiators that stayed behind with the arena
was closed were killed, and the others weren't enough to drive off the monsters.
Those who could make it to the arena in time were saved; it was an inspiring defense.
But the next morning, when everyone saw what had happened...."  He shrugged.  "Most
people left.  Didn't want to do all the work it'll take to rebuild, figured the place
was bad luck, couldn't stand the memories of what they lost here...lots of reasons."
     "There've been hard times all over," Raoul said.  "Seam just had a major geyser
burst out in the middle of the town--"
     "I didn't hear about that!"
     "It just happened.  An assassin named Peranis set it off...."  He looked a
question at the local man.
     "Peranis?"  Ketl Chakor looked uneasy.  "He's got a lot of power here...bought
out the only two taverns left half-standing, owns a boat that ferries back and forth
to Iaye and up the coast."
     "That sounds like Peranis," Berdan agreed.  "An opportunist.  Is he in town now,
do you know?  We would like to...speak with him."
     "No!  No, I don't think he's here now.  He came through, but he didn't stay.  He
took the ferry over to Iaye."
     "Then we'll have to follow him over and talk to him there," Raoul said.  "When's
the next ferry run?"

     Tankesh didn't waste time cursing, he had a decision to make, and fast:  fight 
or flight.  He could take the two men that were supposed to "teach him better 
manners," and their captain and the rest of his men as well, come to that.  He wanted 
to.  But would it forward his mission, which was to get into the Kashka, kill the 
traitor, restore Kasarya to her rightful position, make sure the Andorian League came 
out of the whole mess looking good, and get out safely himself?  Or run, change his 
appearance yet again, and try a different approach?  Prudence said he should run, but 
he didn't want to.
     "You leave him alone!" Kasarya screeched.
     Tankesh half sighed, half grinned.  That would do it!  No guard liked taking 
orders from a civilian, and damned few Karnhorns could bear to take orders from a 
woman, and then when you throw in the apparent difference in class....  He turned, 
dropping into a hand-to-hand fighting stance.  No point in killing these men if he 
didn't have to; they were just doing their jobs.
     Party of five, two men dismounted and carrying clubs.  Okay, clubs he would 
fight bare-handed until he could grab one and turn it on the other.  But if either 
one drew a sword, they were dead men.  He feinted to the left, wove right, and then 
darted toward the left-hand man and grappled briefly, seizing his club in time to 
turn and parry the other fellow.  The right-hand man staggered a little when his blow 
met unexpected resistance, but he recovered fast.  So did the one Tankesh had 
disarmed, grabbing him from behind in a bear hug.  Tankesh slammed his head back, 
butting the bear-hugger in the face, stamped on the man's foot, and twisted free.
     By this time, the other two guardsmen had gotten their mouths closed and were 
dismounting, drawing swords.  So much for Mr. Nice Guy.  His sword slid into his hand 
as he turned and moved to put the wall at his back.  If the women had any sense--and 
Kasarya, at least, should--they'd get out of the way.
     Taynisya took a step forward and said, "Do not kill him!  This is the man for 
whom the Vizier has been searching, and he must be delivered to the Kashka alive."
     Tankesh took note, in the back of his mind, that this had been a trap all along.  
Taynisya would pay for that, but later.  Right now... nobody told him that he had to 
keep these Karnhorn Palace Guards alive.  Especially not that captain, sitting on his 
horse and waiting for his men to "teach the peasant manners."  Afraid to do his own 
dirty work?  Or did he just feel that he was above such things?  Whichever, he was 
going to find himself in trouble soon enough....
     Tankesh took out the first swordsman before the man could get set, with a 
slashing sweep to the sword arm that crippled it.  Then spun back to drive off one of 
the club-wielders he'd fought first, back to the second swordsman....  The action 
flowed into a blur guided by instinct and years of training, years that even the best 
of these guardsmen couldn't match.  They were probably good enough to dominate 
peasants, but that wasn't good enough to take HIM.
     Which the captain seemed to recognize, finally.  He drew his own sword and 
leaped down from his horse.  Off-hand shortsword for parrying, Tankesh noted, and 
steel back- and breast-plates instead of the leather worn by his men.  The captain 
moved like a man who knew what he was doing, too, probably trained in one of the 
better local schools, maybe even a local duelist... but could he equal a gladiator?  
And would the other men, the two that weren't badly hurt, stay out of it?  He heard 
the sounds of a scuffle off to the side, and Kasarya cursing, but couldn't turn to 
look.  With luck, she had taken out one of the guardsmen; at the least, she was 
keeping the man busy.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for FLITTER MCGEE, who flew up 16 points in 
the rankings after mashing KID ROCK like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was AIMER, who dropped 8 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with EASTERN BROWN.  Well here's a duelmaster 
that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  JEHANNUM made a Dark Arena Challenge 
against MOUNTAIN TROLL this week.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as MOUNTAIN 
TROLL killed the Duelmaster, JEHANNUM, leaving THE ASININE in mourning.  This 
incredible death has allowed, I might add, FLITTER MCGEE from KRILL CAVALRY to ascend 
to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  An apple a day 
keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
CEO, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, CURTIS JOSEPH went after CEO, who was higher by 23 points.  Well, 
when the dust settled, CURTIS JOSEPH was beat by CEO.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Congrats to TRISHA WINGFOOT for revenging the death of 
hers teammate (but more importantly, feeding HOFFA a bit of dirt).  Remember:  
alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what 
     Well, there's the manager of the ZORPUNT giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time 
I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

                                     PERSONAL ADS

The following personals are from last turn:

Slim Shady -- Bet I couldn't do that twice.  Glad you learned at least ONE thing from 
me, congrats on the Master. -- CEO  (How's Sadie, by the way?)

Dark Arena, be a friend today! -- Darkfist

Tellar Fleet -- Oops, I think you just "messed with" the Aussie Killers.  But don't 
worry, unless you're an Aussie, they won't kill you (I think). -- Darkfist

Krill Cavalry -- Hmmm... so it's begun then... you've decided to throw our warning in 
our faces and kill one of ours... well now... -- Aussie Killers

Darkfist -- How you mess with us, you ask... see the kills table :) -- THawk

Dominik Hasek -- Well done--wouldn't want you to take the throne on a loss.  And with 
a little luck, you can graduate into an ottoman any day now! -- Sandy Fleetwood

Bill Laimbeer -- Well, actually, I didn't want you to kneel before me.  That was 
somebody's hyperbole.  Your surrender was sufficient, young fella.  And I don't 
consider your life worthless.  After all, someone's got to sweep the streets and so 
on, right? -- Flitter McGee

Ghost of King Brown Snake -- Oh, shi-- uh, shoot.  I didn't mean to do that, even 
though I have this THING about snakes.  It was the comment you made about my father's 
armor, the way you sneered it.  I'll be damned proud if I get a chance to wear my 
father's armor.  It's an honor, but maybe you didn't understand that.  Maybe you 
didn't know your father?  Or he wasn't much of a warrior?  No shame in that, of 
course, somebody's got to do the other stuff.  Well, anyway, rest in peace and all. 
-- Tellar Fleet

Curtis Joseph -- Hmm, I can appreciate an attentive student, 'specially if it means I 
get to win.  Do well against others with those skills, CJ. -- Trisha Wingfoot

To die at the hands of a hoffa!  How hawful! -- Ghost of Leandra Fleet
P.S.  So it was a lousy pun, what else can a ghost do for kicks?

We now return you to your regularly scheduled newsletter. -- Temp Ed.

Trisha -- You quitting then was probably for the best, seeing as how you had already 
dropped the only two weapons you brought with you.  I think I saw the first one roll 
over by the arenamaster's box... -- CEO

Jehannum -- Congrats.  Get any good favs? -- Darkfist

Just great!  My witty comments truncated for lack of editorial support.  I'll just 
have to keep the lines short and see how this works... -- Darkfist

     No, it was one of those fluky things.  Talk as long as you want. -- Temp Ed.

THawk -- All kidding aside, welcome to Zorpunt! -- Darkfist

Dominik Hasek -- No DM column?  Whas up wif dat, dawg? -- CEO

Cane Toad -- Gods, you nearly killed me!  (shudder)  You really ARE an Aussie killer!  
The very thought makes my blood run cold, and in this early summer heat, that is not 
easy to do. -- Tellar Fleet
P.S.  I'm not a killer at all, just very unlucky.  But that's the way it goes.

Slim Shady -- I warned ye not to open that closet door, boy. -- Flitter McGee

Ceo -- Well, pooh.  I already KNEW I didn't like hospitals.  I wanted some NEW 
knowledge, like half a dozen skills, maybe. -- Trisha Wingfoot
P.S.  But if one's all I get, well, it's better than no skills at all, or even (voice 
drops to a whisper) being dead.

Cone Shell -- Remind me to get rid of my shell collection.  You've put me off it big 
time. -- Kobey Tayne

Stonefish -- Sheesh, three Aussie Killers out of five opponents?  It's some kind of 
curse, right?  I mean, where are the standbys?  I wanted a standby. -- Luann Swift
P.S.  Not that I'm complaining exactly.  Well, okay, I am complaining.  But, um... 
well, maybe I should drop this whole line of conversation.

All -- Remember to put your arena number on your strategy sheets.  Strategies turned
in without an arena number run the risk of missing the turn. -- NAIEI

10 May 2003
To All -- Fellow managers, I humbly request your help.  My team (Ex Oblivione) was
started in Monuntial (DM 34) back in '92.  They were active for seven months.  I have
lost all early traces of them.  If any of you can help with copies of relevant
newsletters or, if you fought one of my warriors, copies of the fights, I would
greatly appreciate it.  I only have one of my original warriors left from the early
team now active in DM 60.  You can diplo me with any info here in the wonderful city
of Aradi.  Thank you in advance. -- Enigma, manager Ex Oblivione
