Niatoli:

     Agro squinted at the horizon, where an island was taking shape, gray stone and
the brown of winter-killed leaves.  "So that's Niatoli...."  His gaze dropped to the
water that still separated their ship from the new shore.  Water that was steel gray
and torn into ragged waves where the wind whipped it across drowned rocks.  He
glanced at Tully, who had taken charge of sailing their ship.  "Isn't there some kind
of safe channel of approach?"
     The sailor grinned at him.  "This is the safe channel," he said cheerfully.
"This is why people don't conquer Niatoli.  Too hard to get here, and we'll be
sitting ducks for catapults on the shore once we get closer, too."
     "What a thrilling prospect," the Croc growled.
     "Oh, they won't shoot US," Tully said.  "We've got a banner they'll recognize."
He gestured toward the ship's mast.
     Agro looked, and raised his eyebrows.  Apparently the rebels had saved one of
the Usurper's men when they took the ship back in Monuntial.  That man was now
hanging from the mast.  "An unusual sort of banner," he noted calmly.  If Tully had
hoped to shock him, the sailor would be disappointed.  Agro was a gladiator and had
seen death often enough, and more than that, he was a Croc.  He might look human,
outwardly, but his soul was that of a hunter who had eaten men.
     Tully blinked, then shrugged.  "Yeah, but it works.  There's a lot of people on
Niatoli that fled Monuntial at one time or another," he went on.  "Refugees and
rebels and...just people who couldn't take the Usurper's ways."
     "Will they fight?" Agro asked.
     "If someone has a plan--a good plan, mind you--and gives them a leader, yeah.
Most of 'em will fight.  Have you got a plan?"
     "We'll see," the Croc answered.
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     For two days, Agro merely circulated among the refugees and listened.  Sometimes
he asked a question or two.  There was a lot of wild talk--that was among the more
recent refugees.  The ones who'd been on Niatoli for months had calmed down.  Or
maybe gotten resigned.  Not that it mattered which.  It was the calm ones he'd want
to talk to first, the ones who'd thrown off their initial indignation and could think
sensibly about ousting the Usurper.
     Because he had the beginning of a plan.
     He decided to start with a man named Riterrian, who had been a merchant in
Monuntial and was now working--and making good money--as a woodcutter.  Agro figured
that showed flexibility and enterprise, and he needed those qualities in the core of
rebel leaders he was going to forge.
     They met in Riterrian's woodyard, surrounded by stacked cords of firewood and
ankle-deep in sawdust.  Riterrian was wielding an axe himself, lopping limbs from a
tree that before sawing it into logs.  When he saw the Croc coming, Riterrian sent
his helpers away with a few muttered words, then waited, axe in hands.
     To 'flexible and enterprising', Agro mentally added 'intelligent'.  If the man
was willing, he'd make a good lieutenant.  "You've guessed why I'm here."
     "Yes, I think so.  There's been talk about you."  Riterrian's hands sifted a
little on the axe.  "Tully is sure you're going to lead a successful revolt against
the Usurper."  He was silent for a moment.  "Tully talks a lot."
     Agro shrugged.  "He's right."
     "Why?  You're not from Monuntial yourself, so why do you care?"
     "Would you believe I hold a personal grudge against the Usurper for what he
tried to do to me and Bindi?"
     "Maybe, but that wouldn't be enough to explain why--"
     "Because I'm from Lapur, which is allied with Monuntial--old Monuntial, not the
Usurper."  Seeing that Riterrian was still unconvinced, Agro frowned, searching his
mind for other reasons.  Finally he shrugged.  "I like a good fight."
     "Now, that one rings true," Riterrian said.  He turned and drove his axe blade
into a chopping block, then sat down on the trunk of tree where he'd been working.
"Have you got a plan, or are we making one together here and now?"
     Agro grinned, displaying rather more teeth than a human would.  "We're making a
plan now.  I can get fighters--gladiators, mostly--but you're the one who knows
Monuntial and its people.  I've only been there once."

Call for volunteers to help free Monuntial from the Usurper.  Contact the Scribe by

Zukal:

     Ghenis threw down the handful of papers in disgust.  Invoices for the purchase
of black candles and sacrificial knives, chickens, rabbits...potatoes?  An angry note
from the man in charge of the cult's storeroom, demanding an investigation to
determine what had happened to three yards of black cloth and a pound of onions that
should have been there and weren't.  A requisition for a cushion "to kneel on while
praying"--gods!  Members of dark cults were supposed to be TOUGH.  All these
pettifogging little details were an insult to the whole IDEA of a dark cult.  He had
a dark suspicion that Pelishtekan had deliberately dumped this work on him, this
FILING, to get back at him for something.  The Ferencian was always "getting back at
people," and often for the slightest of slights.  It just showed you what kind of
people Easterners were!
     Ghenis looked at the papers that were now scattered on the floor of his cubicle
and came to a decision.  He had had enough.  He walked out into the hall, taking care
to tread on as many of the papers as he could in the process.  These "administrative
details" were the Ferencian's doing, but there might, still, be a proper dark god at
the head of the cult.  He would find out, and if there was such a deity, he would
give it proper worship, with blood--and not chicken or rabbit blood--and dark deeds.
And if not...Pelishtekan would find out that Hell had NOTHING like the fury of a dark
cultist scorned.
     Ghenis began to consider ways in which he might discover the truth at the heart
of the cult.

Elsewhere in Zukal:

     Jorja rubbed her forehead tiredly, which didn't do a thing to relieve the
headache.  She wasn't sure just how SHE had been appointed to organize the overthrow
of Sekahos, one of Inzolas' men and the current ruler of Zukal.  What business was it
of hers?  She was Adantri, dammit.  She sighed.  Doreg's doing, probably.  Doreg
was--or had been--one of the Bandit Princes of Zukal.  Their association had been
brief; she hadn't even liked the man much.  But apparently that was enough.  By
Mantor's blazing sword, it was MORE than enough.
     If getting rid of Sekahos was what it took to shut up the yammering Bandit
Princes, then she would do it.
     The first thing she needed was information.  Spies.  She began to go over the
list of gladiators she might call on for assistance.

Somewhere between Veastian and North Fork:

     Emir Kyreses of Veastian shrugged and sighed.  "I know.  You meet the Mad
Khaliv's minions on land, and I have no doubt they're a major problem.  But--"
     "AND we shelter YOU from them," Gorich of North Fork cut in.  "WE bear the
burden of his demon soldiers, not--"
     "We meet them at sea," Kyreses countered.  "Most of our ships are destroyed or
dare not return from southern ports, no sailors can be found who will ship out of--or
into--Veastian.  To say nothing of the damage this has done to our economy, we--"
     "Something must be done."  Gorich glared at Kyreses, daring him to counter THAT
statement.
     The Karnhorn did not.  "I agree.  But I don't know what will answer our needs
best.  To kill the Mad Khaliv is obvious, and it MAY be enough...or it may simply
free all the demons he's bound to his service."
     "Aye."  The swampman was silent for a moment.  Then he shrugged.  "But at least
it's a place to start.  But to assassinate the Mad Khaliv will take men very nearly
as mad as he is."
     "Gladiators," Kyreses said.  "That is who we must send."

This is a general call for warriors who want to be in adventures.  Any warriors from
any arenas, Basic or Advanced, any region, are welcome.  A personal or a diplo to
Scribe will do the trick.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     How gratifying it is to view the DM 28 newsletter from Cebu City, Philippines
and see that Poppy Hammer has ascended to the Throne during the Morya Madness!  Not
since Violet has this arena seen a Hammer coached Warrior attain the DM Throne!
     My apologies for not being able to keep more current updates/comments as I am
overseas without any of my DM materials at hand.  Will not be able to send any info
on Poppy Hammer and her Graduation statistics until I return to Qatar and receive the
info delivered.
     Of course, she has to survive the Madness arena and Graduate!

-- Hammer

     It is an Honor to be crowned Duelmaster during the Madness!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in MORYA. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Take a look at 
SRETSAMLEUD's act, as they have a 3-2-0 week and gain 14 places in the team ranking.  
Suffering under a 1-3-0 record and dropping from 10th to 23rd place were the BOXOROX. 
Keep trying!  A seasoned team is steady in the lists.  But to SHADOW GATE, which fell 
to 28th, it's what you soak in before going to the Dark Arena.  Advancing in the 
rankings was BAD GERMS who went from last turn's 23-16-0, to this week's record of 
26-17-0.  Hey everybody, watch out for MESMERIC FIEND, who flew up 25 points in the 
rankings after mashing REAGENT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was REAGENT, who dropped 20 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with MESMERIC FIEND.  What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown 
Man have in common?  They are both the most challenged apes in human history!  
Heyheyhey!  COA PATTY got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt she was more 
than anxious to kick POPPY HAMMER's tail out of the throne!  It's a proud day for the 
KESSEN stable, as their warrior, COA PATTY, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice 
to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the MORYA arena.  Did you 
hear that THE WARLORDS II was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of THE WARLORDS II's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may 
not be funny, but catch BAD GERMS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from THE WARLORDS II.  Challenging down 17 points was GIARDIA. 
Pretty soon he'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' 
pins.  Definition of petty:  GIARDIA bested RORY WYLEY, a mismatch of 17 points.  Was 
it guts or an overtaxed mental capacity that had GREIG challenge up 32 points in the 
rankings to take on THRAKKLASH?  Trading many whacks on the head and a loss for 1 
recognition points, GREIG shows that a guy doesn't have to be good to get places.  In 
a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, NJORD went after PHENIX, who was higher by 
23 points.  Well, when the dust settled, NJORD won victory over PHENIX.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  The audience likes blood and there was 
plenty of it covering SELUMIA as she was driven to an early grave by GARDENIA HAMMER 
of the FLOWER HAMMERZ.  Big man!  THRAKKLASH kills GREIG.  Who ya gonna fight next, 
THRAKKLASH--Minnie Mouse?  I hope ROOK'S RAVENS has a good enough fighter to beat the 
snot out of THRAKKLASH.  Yesterday I talked to the BOXOROX's manager and TERRIBLE 
TOTOMAC, slayer of MICA.  The manager:  'I think I can, I think I can'.  TERRIBLE 
TOTOMAC:  'I already did'.  Congrats to PETTIFOGGER for revenging the death of his 
teammate (but more importantly, feeding POUM POUM a bit of dirt).  VALHALLA has one 
more week to get their bloodfeud off.  I talked to the manager, but he could only 
grunt 'FRIGG who?'.  Ya gotta luv em!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in MORYA have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!--

Lady Maria -- Well, so much for the notion you wouldn't attack an unarmed combatant!!
*grin*  Well fought! -- Sasha

Home -- You really need to learn to quit sooner!  I didn't pack a lunch, you know.
Well met. -- Zachariah

All -- Greetings to friends and foes alike.  The Red Iron Knights stable has returned
to Morya after many seasons away.  Can one tell me, what is this madness in Morya I
hear of? -- Woelfe, mgr RIK

All -- I declare Faith for the Total Parody stylemasters competition. -- Abraxis,
Team Slayer

Maximillian -- I would love to hunt Guardians, but they have fled the arena.  Now
Fruits of Death sits out to aovid the bloodfeud as well.  I only hope Boxorox has
more courage. -- Abraxis
P.S.  Why fear me?  I'm a pathetic 14-28 here, I only want revenge.

S.A.D.M. -- Something about stationary targets inspires me!  Just glad you went down
when you did. -- Handel

Skadi -- Really getting tired of you tin can types challenging me.  Keep it up and
I'll ask Chopin to add a few more notches on his greatsword. -- Vivaldi

Kalixxta -- Nice dance.  Had me wondering what Rook was thinking during the first
minute. -- Mozart
P.S.  Thanks for the skills as well.

Moon Unit -- R.I.P.  I wasn't looking for you; you just had the misfortune of getting
me on a random matchup.  Hope the RUGs bless your replacement. -- Chopin

Grim Blacksmith -- Well that was quick.  You know the fans prefer a bit longer fight,
right?  Good job though and I hope not to see you again any time soon. -- Handel

Ventre De Fer -- Interesting fight.  Not exactly the result I would have liked but
interesting. -- Greig

All -- Still looking for a proxy for the upcoming Face to Face.  Please diplo me
with an address if willing.  Thank you. -- Rook

Loony Lateknight -- You are reminiscent of Mike Bullard. -- Ray D Aytor

Maximus Decimus -- That's one to Max's favour.  Still no kills though. -- Axle Foley

Lady Emelita -- We should have shared those skills. -- Freddy Fender

Mr. Chomp Chomp -- Don't you dare bite off more than you can chew. -- Cam Shaft

Fred -- I have a puzzle for you to solve.  How does a slow lunger get the jump on a
striker? -- Anne Tenna

Eamon Finn -- You fought more like a reject that I did. -- TOGS Reject

Spasm -- You are a lot better than your record indicates.  Well, maybe not a lot
better.  On second thought, your record is better than you deserve. -- Creepazoid

Red Cactus Hammer -- For a moment there I thought you were going to stick me but you
didn't carry one of those sharp, long pointy things.  I was lucky to win as that long
stick I was using just didn't feel right.  Thanks for the 4 skills. -- Foofaraw

Poum Poum -- How embarrassing.  Wimpy sends me out on a bloodfeud and I lose.  And I
didn't learn snot. -- Pat Tikakes

Caesar -- Not fair.  Not fair.  I get you desperate and then hit you in the leg, the
head and the ankle and you still won't go down.  Not fair. -- Pettifogger

Dr. Mabuse -- Now, the best basher holds the top spot.  You'll understand, I'm sure,
if I'm rooting for Ciaran Power to meet with an unfortunate ending.  But even though
I want Ciaran to die, I will cheer for him against all nasty striker types. -- Assur
P.S.  Your nice warrior with a nice fave learn means I'm shooting for a top 3 finish.
I don't think Ciaran will be looking back....

Hmmm....  Maybe I should run on maintenance more often.  Sure it allows those nasty
TV's to challenge away, but I'll take a 4-1 with a loss to a TV. -- Assur

Gypsy -- Fatigue is one of my specialties.  The reality is that I am most deadly to
the young and the old.  But I am a great nuisance to all! -- Rhinovirus

Ciaran Power -- Now that just isn't fair, using drugs to augment your power and
defeat me. -- Staph. Aureus

R.D.X. -- Oooh, did my blade do that?  Isn't that nasty. -- Enterococcus

Sulkagrim -- You fool, you should have known better that to stay up late the night
before you knew you'd be fighting a germ!  HAHAHAHAHA! -- Giardia

Lady Consolacion -- Just ignore that lingering cough.  It certainly can't hurt you.
Heh. -- Rhinovirus

Alanis Moryset -- Tasty.  Mmmm, Mmmm, Good! -- Clost. Perfringens

Chopin -- You are the man!  Keep up the grand work! -- Assur

Poppy Hammer -- Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to eliminate the
world of one Paradox and Coa Patty. -- Assur

Gritbucks -- Ptui!  Why don't they just call you "Dirt in your mouth" or "Eat sand,
dummy"? -- Torpedo
P.S.  I mean, here I was set to be friendly to a cute little chick with curves in all
the right places, and what does she do?  She feeds me a mouthful of sand....  This
was not the start of a beautiful relationship.

Stargrits -- Sir, have you considered into what peril you may be placing your soul?
-- Young Joan

Fire Chief -- Burn (erp!), baby, (erp!) burn! -- Wyatt Burp

Immortal Coil -- You really need to straighten out there.  It'd be a lot easier to
hit your foes (not that I want you to hit me!) if you came at them straight. --
Selumia

S.A.D.M. -- I am very glad that I learned skills from that fight and you didn't. --
Nightwind

I was most challenged?  What did I do to deserve that? -- Torpedo the not-resigned

Kalixxta -- How about, the fact that they all seem to have "railroad crossing"
written on them? -- Nightwind

Hammer -- Good luck and god speed. -- Uncle Wolf

Chain -- I noticed. -- Dolan the Heartbroken, but not over Heartbreaker
P.S.  Maybe she'll reincarnate?

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
