There was nothing to see except that rolling of the grassy land in all directions, nothing moving that he could see. A bird, maybe, at the limit of his vision. He twitched his shoulders, not quite a shrug. "I think it's probably safe to talk now," he said. He raised an eyebrow at Barudai. Barudai, who called himself a scout and had functioned as a spy at need, shrugged. "We have to take some chances anyway," he said. "But for the moment, yes, probably no spies to hear us here." He looked at Redfox, the oldest of the four Rirorni. "The shamans put you in charge. What is our plan?" The older man laughed. It sounded bitter. "Plan? You can't have a plan without some facts." He sighed and rubbed his face. "Sorry, not your fault. I suppose we head for the last known location of the damned sword." "Taegskel?" Shanks Pony sat a little straighter in his saddle. "I've always wanted to see that place." "Get a spyglass and turn it wrong way around, then look at a midden or an anthill...or both," Ghost Dancer suggested. "I have seen it, and I am not eager to return there." "Then why go? We're all volunteers," Shanks Pony began. The other three laughed. He looked from one to another. "We're not?" Ghost Dancer smiled a little. "You are." "But--" "I've been on an 'adventure' before," Redfox said. "Right, that's why Uncle Wolf wanted you to go. I heard him say so," Pony said. "Yeah, but you didn't hear me volunteering, did you?" "That's a selfish attitude," Shanks Pony said, but he sounded unsure of it. "No. There are tens of thousands of gladiators on the Isle," Ghost Dancer said. "Packed in like sardines in some parts of Talahya, and it would be GOOD for them to get out and adventure, instead of leaving it to us few." Redfox laughed suddenly. "No, if that's what they--or their managers--want to do, I say let 'em do it. They aren't hurting anyone else. The Grey Witch seems to be okay with it. As for us...we're probably going to get into deep trouble at some point, but today the sun is shining, it isn't cold or hot, we've got a lot of open country to cover and good horses to cover it on, so let's enjoy-- Look out!" At which point Redfox, with better reflexes than many warriors his age could boast, threw himself off his horse as a dark shape came screaming down out of the sky. The other three hit the ground seconds later, and their horses bolted, leaving them afoot. Shanks Pony rolled over, trying to drag his sword free of its scabbard, and his eyes widened. It was big for a bird, but it had never hatched out of any natural egg. A flying war machine, maybe, made by a demented magician. Vaguely bird-shaped, claws like grappling hooks, even at the outer joint of the wings, and its wing- feathers glittered along their edges like sword blades. At least there was only one, and the other three members of their party might be able to kill it while it was destroying its first target. + ]H[ + ---:--- + ]H[ The Black Sword #8 ]H[ + ---:--- + ]H[ + On the plains: The war-bird screamed and snapped its toothy beak, thrashed through a turn, and climbed back into the sky. Shanks Pony stared after it, amazed by the suddenness of the attack, by the bird, by its departure. "That dry stream we just crossed," Redfox said urgently, "back to it and get down next to the bank. The higher you are above the ground, the easier a target you make." He suited his actions to his words, racing back to the shallow gully and throwing himself down into it. The others followed quickly, and barely in time, as the war-bird made another dive. Shanks Pony pressed himself against the ground, hearing the wind whistle through the bird's steely feathers. A cloud of arrows descending might sound like that--just before men started dying. It screamed again, and he saw its shadow veer and waver. "It can't maneuver near the ground," Barudai noted. "If we can bait it into sword range--" "Arrows," Ghost Dancer answered firmly. "Shoot it at a distance, that's what arrows are FOR." "If an arrow will pierce it, I'll be surprised," Redfox said. Shanks Pony pressed himself toward a low, barely a foot high, ridge of sand in the stream bed and risked a glance upward. The war-bird was high again, circling for another dive. Even so, how could the other warriors speak so calmly? He feared he might choke on his excitement. Not fear, the bird was too alien to fear now. Later, he was sure he'd be terrified at the memory. If he survived. And there were things to be done, if they could figure out what. He looked around for his companions. Each of them had a weapon in hand. How did they do that, in the heat of leaping off their horses and seeking cover? Barudai just had his sword, but Ghost Dancer must have seized his bow and quiver even as he dismounted, and Redfox actually had a spear! Pony managed to get his own sword out and wished for his shield. Even a small shield would be good to have right now. "We should separate," Barudai said. "It can't get all of us." "It probably could get us all," Redfox countered. "We stay together, which will draw the bird to us, and then kill it." He paused, looking upward. "Not back to back, but close. Whoever is controlling that bird is not making best use of its abilities." "Controlling?" Pony asked. "You think it's a golem or a sending?" "No." That was Ghost Dancer. "I would have sensed that. But it might be mind- controlled." Pony watched it circle and begin another dive toward them. It looked like it was coming straight at HIM, but that was probably just his imagination. He hoped it was just his imagination. "What's the difference?" "A golem," the young shaman said, fitting an arrow to the string of his bow, "is a thing, a tool, made of matter and art. It may be created with a brain of a sort--" "Golems in the arena have brains," the young gladiator protested. "And no 'of a sort' about them." "True, but they also have...souls. Human souls, often enough. Sometimes demons. They are an abomination. Also, they can't always be controlled. That's what happens when something has a soul, it starts thinking for itself. Thinking of its own best interest." He was tracking the bird with his arrow, pivoting in place. "A sending is a creation wholly of magic and spirit and has no physical substance--" "A sending couldn't hurt us, then?" "It could kill anyone it was sent after," Ghost Dancer corrected. "A sending is power. If it's a pure spell," he shrugged, "then the magician who sends it has about as much control as I have over this arrow." The war-bird had steadied in its course, and he finished drawing his bow and released the arrow, immediately whipping another into place. "And a mind-controlled bird is a real bird, however unnatural its breeding may have been," Redfox said. "The magician or shaman imposes his will on it. If he's smart, he just forces a purpose on the creature and lets it pursue that purpose with its own skill." Pony couldn't be sure, but he thought the first arrow hit the bird's chest to one side and glanced off. Scary thought. Would a sword glance off, too? "But this magician was NOT smart," Barudai finished as Ghost Dancer shot again. "A bird that had chosen us as prey would be more dangerous than a man trying to use a bird's assets. Especially a man who has never watched a hawk hunting. Ha!" The second arrow hit and lodged somewhere in the bird's chest. It wobbled in flight but kept coming. "A man with hunting skills would have dived the bird out of the sun," Redfox agreed. He had a two-handed grip on his spear and was pivoting to follow the bird's course, which was toward Barudai. The scout stood firm, waiting. Pony was impressed. He didn't know whether he himself would be able to stand so and await the diving predator. Ghost Dancer fired once more, at close range. Pony could see the arrow hit under a wing, in what would be the armpit on a man. The head sank in, but not far. Still, the force of the blow knocked the bird off its course, and it skittered through the air, falling now as much as swooping downward under control. Redfox was on it with his spear, swinging it around to use the butt as a club. Barudai jumped forward with his sword, and with a start, Pony tightened his grip and did likewise. It was like hacking at a stone. Attempts to cut off the war-bird's head, or a wing or taloned foot, were futile. Its feathers were stronger than the best armor scales. At one point it managed to seize the tip of Barudai's blade in its beak and bite through the steel. Redfox battered it with the butt of the spear and broke or dislocated one wing. "Bash it with rocks," he suggested, panting. "Bury it under a cairn of rocks," Ghost Dancer added. "We may not be able to kill it, but this is a creature of the air, and if we can seal it under earth and stone, that may be enough to stop it." "It will have to be!" Barudai said. "We can do nothing if this lives and follows us." "There's a sort of pit over that way," Pony said, pointing, "and if we want to bury it...." "Good idea." Redfox shifted around the bird until his blows were coming from the other side and he could drive it across the ground toward the pit. Barudai laid aside his damaged sword and hurried to assemble stones beside the pit; Pony went to help him. It seemed to take hours to force the bird into the pit and bury it. Ghost Dancer was standing over the cairn muttering and making invisible marks on the upper stones with his fingers. Pony was surprised, afterward, to glance at the sun and see that no more than an hour had passed. Their horses, he saw, had not gone far; they were visible a mile down the shallow valley. And he was the youngest and least experienced member of the group, which meant going after their mounts was his job. He sighed. "I'll get the horses," he said, and started walking. DUELMASTER'S COLUMN Notes from the arena champ. What a way to come back to the action. But where have the Northern Badlands gone? South for the winter? Doesn't sound right. Apologies to Idun, didn't mean to thump you extra hard like that, but it looks like you have a little work to do before you get to sit up here. Anyway, I hope to stick around for a little while yet, but I think the boss is looking to hold a couple of us aside for a while for a little tourney action. Cam Shaft Otto's Mechanics SPY REPORT Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport. I doubt SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM will ever be the same. Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for SISTERS OF SMASH, whose 1-4-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 10th. FILIPINA LADYZ stable has parlayed this turn's 3-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings. This brings them up to 5th place. Good work, guys! LE PLON has lost to STORMDANCER, falling 12 points, while helping make THE PENTARCHY a 3-1-0 turn. Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, CAM SHAFT has lost the title of Duelmaster. And not without some honor, MR. CHOMP CHOMP now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM. By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at Salty's Chowder House? He who challenges well, fights well. He who avoids without cause, shall lose for good reasons. My mama told me that one. I also notice that the DODGE BULLETS stable was the most avoided team this turn. Come on SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM, what are you afraid of? And guess who avoided DODGE BULLETS stable the most? Believe it or not, it was RIDERS OF AHRINGOL. Anyone surprised? Well, sports fans, take notice that PAULETTE from SISTERS OF SMASH was SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM's most challenged warrior this turn. In a brave attempt, LORD COWAN from LORDS OF DEATH challenged up 18 points to fight RAT from the THE ANIMALS stable. LORD COWAN perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he bested RAT and ended up with 17 recognition points. The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace. Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed. A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over. Consider well. Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the sweetest. It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords sharp and your hammers heavy. Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME MR.

The Mordanti Olympics, having been gone for six years, have returned to the Mordanti Alliance, sponsored by Amicitia Primoris. Teams have competed against each other for recognition and notoriety four times in the past. It is far past time for the fifth Mordanti Olympics to be held. The Mordanti Olympics shall be held in the Mordant arena (DM-1) from May 1st (T544) through Oct 30 (T557). There will be a 'registration period' lasting until T543, where teams will be allowed to register by activating in Mordant and declaring their participation in the personals. Rules will be posted in the Mordant arena (DM-1) newsletter no later than T543, but shall be available online before then. An announcement will be made as to where they will be posted. Prizes will be awarded to the winners. Lord Xiang Amicitia Primoris email@example.com http://amicitiaprimoris.gotdns.com LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS MR.
