In the Far West:

     Herlas sat at one side of the boat next to the rail, wrapped in his cloak and
staring out to sea; he ignored everybody.  Shania sat in the bow, wrapped in her
cloak, staring out to sea, and ignoring everybody.  The rest of the group, Ashon
Chang, Werre, Rughal, Vurand, and Jammies, went about the business of getting the
boat ready to sail.  When the tide turned and started outward just before sunset, the
boat went with it.
     Werre, Rughal, and Jammies handled the actual sailing, two on and the third
resting in rotation.  Werre had sailed before, Rughal had some knowledge of boats,
and Jammies was a fast learner.  It would turn out to be an exhausting schedule,
which they all realized, but Vurand was worse than useless on a boat, Shania didn't
have the strength to help, and Ashon Chang's job was to keep a close and constant
watch on Herlas.
     The sun set before they were out of sight of the coast, coloring the sea before
them like blood.
     "A bad omen," Vurand muttered, staring westward past Shania's motionless form.
     Ashon Chang hesitated, looking away from Herlas to the red sea beyond.  One
could not deny the reality of omens, but....  "Our journey will be what we make of
it, my friend."
     "And we're nearing the end of it," Jammies added, coming up behind the two.
"Praise Mantor for that!"
     "Geographically, we may be coming to the end," Ashon Chang corrected him, "but
in terms of actions to be taken and problems to be solved, I suspect we aren't even
     "I didn't want to hear that," Jammies told him.  He shrugged.  "I know you're
right, but can't you let me keep an illusion or two for another few days?"
     The last burning rim of the sun disappeared under the horizon, and night
unrolled from the east.  The speed with which darkness fell was unnerving.
     "The moon'll be up in a couple of hours," Vurand muttered uneasily.  "I'm not
afraid of the dark."  He sounded unsure of that, and yet all the party knew that it
was true.  The Orc had moved through the darkness of the mountains and forests
without hesitation.  But there was something about this night....
     Ashon Chang glanced back at Herlas, but the Fratsfan merely shifted his position
a little and continued to stare into the distance.  At the bow, Shania was invisible.
"Lady Silverstar should go into the cabin and sleep," he said suddenly.  Saying her
name focused his vague alarm, and he stared forward, trying to pierce the darkness.
     "I'll remind her," Vurand agreed.  He braced himself on the side of the cabin
against the movement of the deck and edged forward.  A horse was easier to ride.
Hell, if a horse made trouble, started pitching, you could get off and walk.
"Shania, you need to....  Shania?  Shania!  Rughal, Ashon, she's not here!  Shania's
     "She...she just went into the cabin when it got dark, and we didn't notice,"
Jammies said quickly.  He scrambled down into the low doorway to check.
     Ashon Chang moved in a different direction; the samurai had his own suspicions,
and he'd been against including Herlas in their party once the man had confessed.
The Fratsfan mage hadn't moved except to stand up and stare forward.  The gladiator
saw his face pale as pearl in the darkness.  He grabbed Herlas' shoulder.  "Where is
     "I don't know--"
     "TELL ME, damn you!"  He shook the mage hard.
     "I.  Don't.  Know," Herlas repeated.  "I've been under your eye the whole time--
yours or one of the others.  What could I have done, how could I have spirited her
     "Not in the current state of the Arcanum," Herlas snarled.  "My powers are not
so great that I can draw from Outside sources.  And would I do something to Shania
and stay here to receive your vengeance?  I'm not such a fool!"
     "Very nearly, though," Rughal said grimly.  He grabbed Herlas' other shoulder.
"You may not have taken her away, but you can make a guess as to who did, how, why...
and where.  If you want to see the sun rise again--"
     "The triumph of brawn over brain?" Herlas sneered.  Then he let out his breath
in a sigh.  "I can make guesses," he admitted, "but they won't do you any good.  If
she was taken as I think, none of you could get near her."  He sighed again.  "I do
not wish Shania Silverstar ill, but some things are too important for personal
considerations--the restoration of the Arcanum is one of them.  Shania understood
that herself.  It is her goal.  She's dying, as you know whether you admit it or not.
What better use for her life than to--"
     Rughal's free hand closed around the magician's throat, choking off any further
     "Don't kill him yet, Rughal," Ashon Chang said grimly.  "First let him tell us
his 'guesses' on what has happened to Lady Shania.  Then I'll help you kill him."
One hand ran along the sheathed curve of his sword.
     Rughal relaxed his grip a little.  Herlas sucked in air.  "Start with who took
her," the ranger said.
     "I don't know names," Herlas gasped.  "A coalition of wizards and priests--"
     "Think of some names," the samurai growled.  His dagger gleamed silver in the
starlight as he brought it up to prick the Fratsfan's cheek just below his eye.
     "I don't know names!  Just...Murluvir, the one who came to see me in Zensu.  He
isn't the principal, just an agent, as I was to be--"
     "Don't lie," Rughal said.  His voice was cold and smooth as ice.  Or steel.  "As
you WERE an agent.  For whom?"
     "I don't know!  I didn't ask.  Some things it's better not to know...."
     "Guess," Ashon Chang ordered implacably.
     "I don't know!"  Herlas panted, perhaps gathering strength for more denials.
But he finally said, "I suspect...Folstrom.  Or someone like them.  Someone who can
draw on power from Outside."
     "So that's who...for now.  Tell us why," Rughal demanded.  Before the Fratsfan
could answer, he added, "And don't tell us it's another thing you don't know!"
     "But I don't!" he wailed.  "All I can do is guess--"
     "So guess."  Ashon Chang leaned closer.  "But guess right."
     "Maybe...because she's from Outside, too.  Or because she's a seer.  Because she
knows things that other people don't understand how to know.  Or because she's linked
to the Ghean Arcanum even though she's an Outsider.  Some of those reasons, all of
them, none of them.  I swear I don't know!"
     "And how was it done?" Ashon Chang asked.  "We assume magic of some kind--
nothing else would make sense.  But under current circumstances--"
     "They have no fear, no discretion, no patience!"  Herlas' exasperation seemed
genuine.  "It must have been some kind of small Gate, but to open one NOW...the
     "And the last question," Rughal said in a soft voice that sounded no less
dangerous for its softness.  "Where have they taken her?"
     There was a long silence.
     "You don't know," Ashon Chang said.  His grip on the man's shoulder tightened;
he could feel bones grinding against each other under his fingers.  "Guess."
     "To the Eye of the West.  Wherever it is."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Kid Rock, m'boy, you're too young to take that route.  Young boys should be more
active, always up to stuff.  Why, I remember when I was your age, there was no
holding me.  I jumped everything I met that didn't jump me first.  Survived it, too,
though there was days my momma didn't think I would.

                                        Flitter McGee

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZORPUNT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with HUGE TWIRLING 
MAN?  He actually beat THE MC5's KID ROCK, and walked away with 24 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at THE MC5.  KID ROCK lost 17 points to HUGE TWIRLING MAN.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe KID ROCK will provide more easy wins...  THE 
MC5's hatred of KRILL CAVALRY surfaced again as DOMINIK HASEK challenged ZORPUNT's 
top dog.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for THE MC5's outstanding member, 
Duelmaster DOMINIK HASEK.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, AUSSIE KILLERS!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at BATTLEMANIA ain't reelin'!  AUSSIE 
KILLERS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
TRISHA WINGFOOT!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  CANE TOAD 
of AUSSIE KILLERS knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged SLIM SHADY of THE MC5 who is 
up by 20.  Now was this a wise move?  CANE TOAD perhaps got his just desserts, seeing 
as he was defeated by SLIM SHADY and ended up with 45 recognition points.  I hate 
going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that EASTERN BROWN gets in.  
He fights people like LUANN SWIFT, 12 points below.  I thought EASTERN BROWN showed 
great skill and promise when he killed LUANN SWIFT.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  FEVER DOG looked pretty sick and surprised when he 
learned THE ASININE is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 7-6-1?  
Who will dare fight DA17, after he returned from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 
1-0-1 is 33, and has he points) How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  ZORPUNT 
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

Krill Cavalry -- I hear that you folks don't worry about things like bloodfeuds.
Funny that you got revenge by accident anyway! -- Darkfist

First Hasek and now McGee.  Don't any of you realize that the DM is expected to say a
few words of encouragement to us lesser folk or gloat or soapbox or SOMETHING.  Let
me up there if you don't feel up to the responsibility! -- CEO

Curtis Joseph -- I kick your tail and you learn more than me?  There's a conspiracy
going on here! -- CEO

Luann Swift -- Woops!  Sorry 'bout the throat-shot, girlfriend.  With my high
deftness you'd think I could hit what I was aiming at every time.... -- Penok

Aussie Killers -- Interesting that you didn't bloodfeud again last turn.  Being
neighborly or something?  You might get a rep as a nice guy if you're not careful. --

     Nah, that'll never happen. *grin* -- Ed.

Jehannum -- Must not have been good faves if they didn't work on the Mountain Troll,
huh? -- Darkfist

Hoffa -- Take that, you fiend! -- Trisha Wingfoot

Mark Tremonte -- Tough introduction to the arena, eh?  That's the way it goes,
though.  At least you survived it. -- Tellar Fleet

Penok -- Ouch!  Nobody warned me about veritable walls of blades. -- Luann Swift

Pink Taco -- Shrimp?  I never thought of putting shrimp in a taco.  Hmm.  Kinda
interesting.  But it needs more sauce. -- Kobey Tayne

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

Assurnasirbanipal invites all to use his computerized warrior management tool.  The

program is the most extensive management tool ever created.  It was meant to run on a
PALM OS PDA, but will run (emulated) on a PC or MAC.  You can get this program on the
web at: http://www.geocities.com/assurnasir

A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists
