Aruak City:

     If Segallion and Nila were under the control of the spell or spellcaster who had
seized her mirror, then they had to be stopped.  Without needless injury--they had
not chosen to do Khaldren's will, after all.  But her own mind, though free from
outside control, was weary and slow.  She was fumbling as badly with her spells as
Segallion was with his sword.  There wasn't going to be TIME for her stop him gently.
A word of Command formed on her lips.
     The warrior staggered into her so that they both fell in a tangle of flailing
limbs.  And his sword struck the blood-faced mirror, splitting the frame and
shattering the glass.
     The glass exploded away from the mirror stand, bloody shards flying outward on a
wave of sound so shrill as to be barely audible.  If Adie, Segallion, and Nila had
not all been on the floor, they might have been badly injured, even killed.  Was it
chance that they were all below the deadly glass?  Adie thought not.  They were each
worshippers of the sun in their different ways, and she suspected the hand of the god
in their survival.
     Rolling away from Segallion, Adie sat up, brushing at her hair and her robe
absently.  When the mirror broke, she had felt a shadow lifting; that was the first
she had known that there was a level to the enemy spell below the obvious.  She
shivered.  She hadn't even suspected that deeper spell, and it could have done...
anything, it had taken her so completely by surprise.  But she would not be surprised
a second time.

On the road from Ardivent:

     "Health, humility, and honor will not solve all problems," Master Cho said
flatly.  He had rejected the idea of hiring a horse and was making surprisingly good
time for an elderly-looking man on foot.  "You know that as well as I do, Fandil!
Sometimes you need cunning, as well, and a willingness to take losses."
     "I know that."  Fandil the Wise sounded testy, and in truth he was very
irritated.  On the most immediate level, by Cho's present attitude and by the ease
with which the Adantri kept up with Fandil's horse.  "But young Adeolar is not a loss
I'm prepared to accept."
     "Of course not, or why would we be rushing toward Aruak City instead of sitting
at home with beer?"  Cho squinted at the forest on their right.  There was a bad
feeling to it today.  Most of the land that lay between the environs of Ardivent and
the beginning of the Aruaki lands was forested.  Despite the hunger for agricultural
land in Andoria, no one had made an attempt to clear this forest and put the land
under the plow.  Nobody offered reasons, it was just "not done."  It didn't take a
master of the subtle arts to figure it out, though.
     The forest was haunted.
     Through a sweep of land twenty miles wide stretching from near Lyratilan to near
Mordant, the forest concealed a scattering of ruins.  Not the Van ruins of northern
Andoria, or not entirely--who could know for sure at this late date?  The ancient
city of Celestinvael was the best known in modern times, but there were other things
hidden by those dark and tangled trees.  Maybe worse things.  Things that might be
wakened by the same spell that was stirring Celestinvael.
     It was not a situation to make an old man sleep soundly at night.
     "I just hope we're in TIME to help Adeolar," Cho muttered.
     "She's strong and skilled," Fandil protested.  "Our fears may be completely
unfounded!"
     "So you'll back Adeolar's young strength and skill against Khaldren's ages of
experience and cunning?  I hope you're right, because at our best pace," he glanced
scornfully at Fandil's horse, "and with no problems, it'll take us two more days to
get to Aruak City."

Skaithvarn:

     Shania Silverstar did her best to be patient, but it seemed to be taking Ashon
Chang so LONG to negotiate with the ship captain!  She glanced around at her
companions, wondering if she could have organized her resources better for this
frantic rush back to Alastari.  No, probably not.
     Vurand and Jammies were keeping both eyes on Herlas; the Fratsfan mage hadn't
given them any trouble...yet, but he might.  He would, when he thought he had a
chance to win.  Werre was organizing their luggage and supplies (desperately slim
now) as fast as they were off-loaded from the mules.  Zakar...she didn't know what
Zakar was doing, and she wasn't sure she wanted to.  He was on their side, more or
less, but...today had seemed to be a "less" day.  And Rughal was at her side,
supporting her as weariness ate at her bones.
     Ashon Chang was gesturing them forward to the ship.  Before Shania could gather
her strength to walk, Rughal lifted her and carried her down the dock.  "It is
agreed," Ashon Chang said.  "This man, Kaldinar, will sail us across the Trier to
Zorpunt."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CALEAM games.  There were bitter words at IT'S ALL 
RELATIVE's guildhouse after a 0-1-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 
10th.  Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week SHERWOOD FOREST went 3-2-1 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  My praise to HOME LIFE for their 3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was 
a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  GO-FER caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TUK ADOW and was awarded 23 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SAILOR VENUS put down 
ALBUQUERQUE, causing it to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Who here was 
not present for the title fight this week as TAOS boldly TV challenged NICKEL in 
order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  Not for nothing has NICKEL in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in CALEAM seem to feel that 
they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in CALEAM these days is WARCKERS.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding WARCKERS.  Indeed it was 
HEADBANGERS.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the 
knowledge that many fighters are after KORIBUS.  Watch your back!  As a gladiator 
gets older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of his heart.  True, SPLINTER?  Who could 
miss your "brave" challenge of KORIBUS?  All the city knows the duel went in favor of 
SPLINTER.  I shall not fail to spread the word in other cities of this "mighty" 
victory.  I cannot but express pride for the fearlessness of BALTIMORE who cast 
caution to the winds and challenged RAZOR BACK, a fighter 32 points higher.  I must 
admit to some joy.  Before my very eyes the underdog in this contest, BALTIMORE, 
defeated RAZOR BACK to claim victory and recognition.  For some warriors honor is not 
important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how ORLANDO of HERE TO PHOENIX 
challenged down 21 points to MISS PRISS.  The weight of the challenge fell hard upon 
MISS PRISS and predictably she was bested by ORLANDO.  This is how to arouse the 
anger of an entire guild!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, 
it seems that COLORADO SPRINGS posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
JUICEA.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand COLORADO SPRINGS lost to JUICEA.  
Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape 
the vagaries of this world.  This week arena veteran RAZOR BACK was slain, despite a 
21-11-0 record.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one 
reward--death.  This past week MOTHER SUPERIOR, at 5-8-0, departed CALEAM forever.  
This week in mortal passion BALTIMORE let the blood of RAZOR BACK, sending one more 
soul into the void.  Retribution by WARCKERS seems inevitable!  Fate is a fickle 
mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the 
victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in CALEAM.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle 
walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

Sablon/Papaiz -- I am glad to report that Taos pulled a TV and is thus reactivated.
However, a TV challenge was issued to Flimsy this turn thinking he was still the DM,
and am going to try and get this adjusted. -- Crip

Splinter -- Aaaah!  It's in my FINGER, get it OUT! -- Koribus
P.S.  Remind me not to teach well.

Orlando -- I'm sorry, dear, but golems are icky.  I can't bear to have anything to do
with you. -- Miss Priss

Queen Papaya -- Ah, dear lady, that was beautifully done.  Seldom have I seen anybody
refrain from killing a houseplant with such exquisite grace.  (Let me know if I'm
laying it on too thickly.)  It would give me great pleasure if you would join me for
dinner tonight.  Not at the Golden Canyon, an uncouth drinking emporium.  I'm sure
there is a better place in Caleam, one suited to your class and beauty.  Do say yes.
-- Poppa Lode
P.S.  I do my humble best, dear lady.

Hammerfall -- (smirking)  You're not supposed to drop it on your own foot, you know.
-- Bouncer

R to L -- (feering chatty)  I used to think my numbel: foul foul foul foul--  Gods,
it sounds awful that way!  I used to think it would bling me luck.  And this time, it
did. -- Go-Fel

Congratulations to Amee on her graduation. -- Golden Canyon

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!
