     Raoul didn't much like this Kaldrehn, or trust him at all, but there was nothing
he could do right then.  And many people, especially wizards, were arrogant and self-
centered without necessarily being bad citizens.  Well, amend that to "most wizards
were arrogant and self-centered, and SOME of them were not bad citizens...."
     "So having escaped the destruction of Krael, you're going to settle down to a
meditative life in Skaithvarn?" Hallie O'Dene asked.
     The Kraelian laughed with genuine amusement.  "Do I look like a man for the
meditative life?"  His gaze went around the inside of the tower, and his lip curled
in scorn.  "This is a way station, nothing more.  As I was the adviser and kingmaker
in Krael, so shall I be in the world that now is."
     "Krael is drowned--" Jeri began.
     The wizard shrugged.  "There are other kingdoms.  The current one in that area
is now called Andoria, is it not?"  He looked toward a shadowy stretch of wall where
a crude table stood; there was a thick black book on it.  "I shall rule Andoria in
all but name...."
     Raoul looked at the book, too, and groaned inwardly.  That would be the one
Peranis had stolen, the infamous Black Book in which the never-to-be-sufficiently-
damned Assassins' Guild had recorded all the secrets it could find that would allow
powerful Andorians, nobles and rich merchants and military figures, to be blackmailed
or coerced.  With that book, a clever man COULD rule Andoria...at least for a while.
They would have to get it away from Kaldrehn and destroy it.
     But on the positive side, it would no longer be necessary to visit the vampire
city of Leemith.  And there was only one of Kaldrehn, whereas Hallie had told them
there were thousands of vampires in Leemith.
     "Not every powerful man in Andoria is corrupt!" Jeri burst out.  "That's just a
small fraction of--"
     "There will be enough," Kaldrehn said calmly.  "You would be surprised how few
points of pressure it takes to control a kingdom!  And I am well skilled in that
art."  The wizard crossed to the doorway and looked out.
     Raoul's hand twitched toward his sword, then was still.  He didn't like to stab
a man in the back, even one who deserved it as much as the Kaldrehn seemed to.  But
he wasn't fool enough even to try against a wizard powerful enough to have moved
through time.  The man probably had eyes in the back of his head, and short way with
would-be assassins.  At least it seemed likely that Peranis had got all that was
coming to him.
     "As soon as this storm ends," Kaldrehn said, "I will cross to Andoria.  You
three will be my guides and servants.  For now.  But soon I must form my own coterie
of agents....  That should not be difficult, there are always, in EVERY land, those
who desire a measure of power and wealth, or revenge on the mighty, or simply someone
to lead them."
     Raoul's face tightened.  That was true, he knew.  Not all greedy men were
Delarquan, just as there were honorable men who were not Andorian.  He would get word
to King Mickeal as quickly as he could.  And then he would form his own coterie to
contend against the Kraelians.

Call for volunteers, good guys and bad.  A personal to Scribe or an email to

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ZORPUNT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, THE MC5.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with GEORGE 
CLINTON?  He actually beat BATTLEMANIA's PENOK, and walked away with 19 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at AUSSIE KILLERS.  CONE SHELL lost 29 points to 
CONVICTED ASSASSIN.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CONE SHELL will provide 
more easy wins...  Another fighter (CANE TOAD 10-11-0) challenged another Duelmaster 
(KID ROCK 27-16-0).  Life goes on.  Try as he might, CANE TOAD wasn't good enough at 
persuading KID ROCK to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want 
to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     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, BATTLEMANIA!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at WATER DECK ain't reelin'!  BATTLEMANIA's 
mad!  What do people see in TRISHA WINGFOOT?  Hers 20-32-1?  KRILL CAVALRY ain't 
talkin', but she's got 93 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

8 December 2003
Greetings!  I would like to invite everyone to Jhans (DM 36) for the first annual kLk
St. Valentine's Day Massacre (kill contest).  We will start the contest off with the
ceremonial burning of the Andorian flag on turn 450.  (Six turns away.  Roughly mid-
February.)  The contest will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461, 3 separate victors will
be announced.  Team with the most kills, warrior with the most kills, and alliance
with the most kills.  Prizes will be awarded to the manager of the team with the most
kills and to the manager of the warrior with the most kills.  The prizes will
probably be team roll-ups.  The number of roll-ups has yet to be determined.  The
contest is sponsored by Jhans' newest, (but by the time the contest starts) largest
alliance, the kLk (pronounced "klick"). -- Polarius, mgr. of Blitzkrieg DM 36

     Beginning at the Winter Face-to-Face in Tempe (January 2004), we will implement 
several changes affecting tournaments.  The tournament announcement for the upcoming 
FTF and future tourneys will reflect these changes.
     First, we will eliminate the tourney freeze for all regular DM warrior classes.  
Regular DM warriors will not be classed ahead of the tournament, but instead will 
fight according to their FE on the date of the tourney.  There will still be a freeze 
for the ADM classes, occurring on the same timeline as before, approximately 6 weeks 
before the tournament.
     In addition to the above change, the warrior classes will be slightly altered.  
The new tourney classes will be as follows:

                DM Tourney Classes                 ADM Tourney Classes
              ======================              ======================
                  0 FE:  Rookies                        Freshmen
                1-4 FE:  Apprentices                    ADM
               5-10 FE:  Initiates                      Eligibles
              11-20 FE:  Adepts                      ---induction---
              21-30 FE:  Champions                      Contenders
                31+ FE:  Challengers                    Primus

     All regular DM tourney classes will remain solely FE based.  All ADM classes will 
now be based on warrior characteristics (i.e., the ADM split algorithm), including the 
Freshmen class.
     The Gateway and Primus arenas will be merging before the FTF to form one top 
arena.  These warriors will be split into two tournament classes, the Contenders and 
the Primus classes, again based upon their characteristics.  More information on this 
will be published in the newsletters for those arenas.
     If you have any questions about the above changes, please contact Customer 
Service.  Good luck in your games.
