            + ]H[ + ---:--- + ]H[ Out of the Past #3 ]H[ + ---:--- + ]H[ +

Valamantis:

     Hallie O'Dene did not stay in Valamantis.  She hadn't been able to get an
audience with the ruler of the city-state, Garlor Shanmarrik, and the clerk to whom
she had given her warning had been...disbelieving.  Had, in fact, threatened her with
imprisonment if she "stirred up unrest."  A very proper bureaucrat, he'd been.
Hallie considered slicing off his ears and nailing them to the wall, or possibly 
nailing the man's ears to the wall without slicing them off, but such action would
serve no purpose but to express her anger, so she didn't.  There really wasn't any
point in that.  She gave her warning to Arenamistress Sitalva, who was at least
polite, and then went on her way.  Carefully circling wide around the ruins of Old
Valamantis and ghosts of the ancient city that came and went unstably above them.
The people of Valamantis, in the person of the Lord's clerk, had chosen to ignore her
warning, and there were others she had to find and warn, others who might listen.
     Arenamistress Sitalva did not exactly believe Hallie's warning about the danger
from the Bloodgames, but she didn't disbelieve, either.  She had already seen the
mirage-like ancient towers above the bloody ground.  She had seen those ghostly
towers before, after other Bloodgames, had accepted them as a normal illusion there.
     Maybe she needed to re-think "normal."
     She couldn't imagine anyone resurrecting Old Valamantis for any kind of GOOD
reason.
     The oldest levels of the city were Folstrom.
     And saturated with dark magic.

Mordant:

     Mordant was like a stirred up hive of bees, full of activity, and hostile to any
stranger who had the misfortune to get in the way.  She guessed that she wouldn't
have any more luck getting in to see Queen Talissen of Mordant than she had in
Valamantis.  Which was frustrating, since it was a serious warning she had to
deliver.  Well, she hadn't expected this to be easy....
     After a moment's thought, she headed straight for the arena, bypassing the
palace entirely.  There would be people who'd listen to her at the arena, because she
was one of them.  Kakar was arenamaster in Mordant, she'd met him once.  A grim man,
but who wouldn't be if they had to live in Mordant?  She avoided looking at the
pitted black stone that most of the city was built of, and the windowless
architecture.  The Mordanti were a grim people all around.
     The arena was seething with activity and speculation, though it wasn't fight
day.  Rumors were flying; before she managed to locate the arenamaster, Hallie heard
seven different versions of "an attack on the Queen!" which had been foiled by a
gladiator, or maybe more than one gladiator, or maybe it had been made by a
gladiator, or only reported by a gladiator, or....  The attack on the Queen, if it
had happened at all, was the main topic, but there was a froth of other rumors in the
background: monsters in various likely or unlikely places, out in the swamp, down in
Valamantis, in the Syrinwald lake, or up in the mountains.  A war that might or might
not be happening between two different kingdoms in the south, and even the supposed
participants kept changing--Trocar, Rocanis, Xochithlan, the wild Rirorni.  Banditry
around Tricorus; she shrugged that one off.  There was always banditry around
Tricorus.
     Arenamaster Kakar was closeted with a sober looking man, tall for a Kannar, and
richly dressed.  Kakar didn't actually refuse to listen to Hallie, but he made it
clear that he didn't have much time to spare.
     Hallie shrugged.  The way things had been going since she'd set out to spread
the warning, his attitude was no surprise.  She wondered in passing whether Khaldren
could have managed some kind of spell that made people unwilling to listen.  Not that
it mattered at the moment.  "I bring word of a powerful wizard who has come out of
the past to spread disaster in our time," she began.  "He is a wizard from drowned
Krael, and he claims the intention to resurrect Celestinvael and other lost cities
and build a new empire in Alastari."
     The tall man leaned forward, suddenly frowning.  "Celestinvael is five hundred
years dead," he stated.  "How can this be 'resurrected'?"  Celestinvael was also,
Hallie knew, the closest of the dangerous ruins to Mordant, unless you counted Old
Valamantis--which Khaldren hadn't mentioned.
     "I'm no wizard," she answered.  "I don't know.  But he stated his intention to
use 'blood magic' to do it, which he believes will work even with the Arcanum in
flux."  She shrugged.  "I don't know about magic, but he seemed confidant, and I saw
him work spells of great power."
     "No doubt we've mages around who can confirm or deny this possibility," the tall
man said.  "I will carry the warning to Queen Talissen and set our magicians to
work."  Seeing her surprise, he added, "I am Allech Rabo, Her Majesty's Herald.  I
have the authority to take these steps."
     "Good!  You might pass word to Valamantis, too--I couldn't get to see anyone but
a damned clerk.  If it's blood magic at work, well, there was a lot of blood spilled
in Old Valamantis just over a month ago--"
     "Mordan!"  The Herald leaped to his feet.  "The Bloodgames!  If blood magic
still works, then the danger is extreme!  I must go to the Queen at once!"
     "And I will speak to the gladiators of this city about the dangers ahead," Kakar
said when the Herald had gone.  "Doubtless they will be called upon to take arms
against enemies of Mordant."

Iaye:

     The first ground tremors made people uneasy, but no more than that.  There had
been small earthquakes for months now, mostly centered on Seam and its underground
disturbances.  They posed no threat to the island, except in the case of those boats
who were just coming into the docks when tremor-waves hit.  And even that...the
sailors of Iaye were skilled, and they had learned to deal with it.
     But the mild tremors didn't stop, they were replaced by serious jolts, and the
ground underfoot shivered like jelly in a bowl.  All the sailors who could took their
ships out of the harbor and around the island toward the center of the Trier.  No one
wanted to get caught by a bigger wave than usual and shoved onto a rocky shore.
     Once the ships were safely away from the land, alarm turned to eager
speculation.  Did this herald new geysers for Seam?  Would a volcano erupt and
destroy the town entirely?  Bets were placed.  After all, Seam wasn't THEIR town....
Or maybe this quake would strike a little closer to home, like the one that had
cracked open the Ogre's Tomb in Point.  That thought sobered people.  There had
been...things in the Tomb, and it had taken all the warriors who could reach Point to
deal with them.  What else might be down there, to be released by a fresh earthquake?
They didn't really want to know.
     Most of the ships were strung out parallel to the coast north of Point and Iaye.
Far enough apart not to damage each other if something went wrong, close enough to
pass messages along.  The message that came up from the southern end of the line near
sunset was unexpected, and more than a little alarming.  Everyone knew there were
ruins under the lake between Point and the island of Iaye.  But nobody had expected
them to rise.
     And none of the half-remembered stories of Krael made people happy about the
great city's reappearance.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's 
that for a perceptive observation?) as HOME LIFE can attest...  Practice pays for 
BEAUTY QUEEN, who pummelled TEMOOR, to pocket 16 points.  PEIDAO certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to ZODIAC FREAK and losing 11 points in 
the process!  What can be a greater victory?  WOOLLY LOCO has taken his place as the 
top, as CALEAM's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in CALEAM is taking speech 
lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
HEADBANGERS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, WARCKERS scurried away from HEADBANGERS.  Oh, the 
shame!  If challenges were horses, KORIBUS could open up a fast food joint!  CHARDON 
challenged KORIBUS!  Who says SOULS OF BLACK are just a bunch of wimps!  CHARDON of 
SOULS OF BLACK kept hers wits as she was subdued by KORIBUS.  My love of complete 
Spyreports dictates that I note the mismatched fight, JUMBO SHRIMP and BOUNCER.  Are 
HOME LIFE unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I thought JUMBO SHRIMP showed great 
skill and promise when it was overcame by BOUNCER.  All right, so I slept through it! 
Big deal!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Like a 
tattered, worn-out, faded, out-of-fashion garment cast out to rot, AIKSU of SOULS OF 
BLACK has been summarily sent to the Dark Arena.  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; 
it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything compare 
to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for CALEAM?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir

                   MONGO'S MARDI GRAS MADNESS DUELMASTERS AUCTION

     Mongo, aka Matt McIntosh and ex-Warden of the Dark Circle, is auctioning off his
entire collection of Duelmasters warriors and stables.  Don't miss out on this chance
to own some fantastic warriors!  There are ADM warriors available in every class from
Primus to Freshmen, as well as over a dozen Basic stables.
     Does a Slasher with +4 attack, +4 decisiveness, +3 initiative and +2 riposte
sound good?  How about a Lunger who received the benefit of a TC prize, has TVed
three times after graduating--and still hasn't maxed out his skills!?  How about a
Striker in the Freshmen class who has decisiveness for a favorite learn and the MAUL
for a favorite weapon!?
     Or perhaps you prefer playing in Basic.  Then how does a stable with four Adept
class warriors who have a combined record of 41-19-9 sound?  Or maybe a stable with
three 21-Will warriors?  Or perhaps a stable with four Initiates and a Rookie who
have a combined record of 23-6-1?
     The quality of the lots is excellent.  All you need to view and bid on the lots
is go to:
          http://members.aol.com/jvmerlino/mardigras.html
     If you want to be on the mailing list to receive regular updates on the auction,
just send an e-mail to JVMerlino@aol.com. Merlin, aka John Merlino and also an ex-
Warden of the Dark Circle, will be running this auction for me.  I just moved to New
Orleans and am likely currently stumbling around the French Quarter...because it's
Mardi Gras!  So I have named my auction in honor of this occasion.
     The auction will start on Saturday, March 13th, 2004, and will continue for
several weeks.  But you should get your bids in early if you want your best chance at
owning any of these fantastic warriors and stables.
     Many thanks to all for your interest and your bids,

Mongo

Style Masters Symposium
Hosted by Hammer

     The years have slipped by and many DM Managers have come and gone since the last
Hammer's Handbook was compiled and printed.
     There is now a stirring within me to begin writing and editing yet another
Handbook with a distribution date sometime in 2005.
     This Handbook will be made available via Email with a possibility of burning the
info to a CD for distribution.
     Special arrangements will be made to provide the information via printed page to
those contributors who are serving sentences behind bars.
     The working title of this new Handbook is "Style Masters Symposium Hosted by
Hammer".
     Distribution of this Handbook is projected to be MAINLY for those DM Managers
who contribute information/articles to Hammer by June 2004.
     Informative and entertaining articles should focus on insights regarding Any or
All 10 Style Masters for both the Basic and ADM arenas as well as Tourney
competition.
     Articles focusing on Weapons/Armor are also encouraged for inclusion.
     Whether you are a Newbie Manager without a clue or a Jaded Veteran; everyone has
discovered something about this gaming experience that is both Insightful and
Entertaining.
     Email Your Articles to HammerDM@fastermail.com or send them via Diplo to either
Flower Hammerz (372) in DM 28 or Casino Hammerz (576) in DM 33.
     Length and Content of the Style Masters Symposium Hosted by Hammer will be
Determined by the Quality and Quantity of Contributors Combined with the Literary
Efforts of Hammer who is currently overseas for an indefinite period of time.
     Articles Contributed for this Project should be of Sufficient Length and Content
to Warrant being Included to Receive the Finished Document when Hammer has completed
this literary work to His satisfaction.
     Managers contributing articles are also requested to include a DM Bio of
Themselves along with any Notable Successes and/or Failures during Their DM Career in
Basic, ADM and/or Tourney Play.
     A listing of Active Stables would also be Helpful for Anyone Seeking to Reply to
Contributors via Diplo, Email or Snailmail.
     May Your Blades Be Sharp And Your Wits Sharper!

St. Valentine's Day Massacre Update

kill contest in DM 36 is off to a great start.  We are also pleased to announce that
in addition to the 10 team rollups we are also able to offer the renaming of a dark
arena warrior as a prize to the manager with the most kills.  The contest is only 2
turns old and is still wide open.  There are currently 5 managers tied with one kill
each.  Anything can still happen so hurry up and get into the arena.
     On a personal note, no other alliances have entered the arena in force to
challenge the kLk dominance.  We were expecting The Firm to put up a fight for their
supposed home arena.  But, they were a no show.  Guess they proved what they are
really made of.  *evil grin*
     Perhaps another alliance would like to step in to give us a challenge.  We are
throwing down the gauntlet.  Perhaps the Chaos Inc. boys I keep hearing about would
like to step in and challenge the kLk for arena dominance.  If you don't show up,
Chaos, don't feel bad.  FAR better managers than you have been invited into Jhans but
have chosen to pass on the offer.
     So if you consider yourself worthy to compete, like fierce competition, and
enjoy arenas where the personals are as fierce as the fighting, come visit JHANS DM
36.  We're already planning our next contest, "Capture the Flag," and have a
storyline being actively worked on in the arena.  Whatever you like about DM you can
find it in JHANS.
