     "Haruspek is dead," Cloudrider protested.  "None of the rest of us have any
skills in...that kind of stuff."  He made a minimal gesture toward the cemetery, as
though he was afraid of attracting the attention of whatever might be sleeping there.
Or waking there in the windy darkness.
     His teammate, Lady Protector Young Joan, shrugged.  "It doesn't matter now.
There are other avenues of contact...BECAUSE Haruspek is dead.  As he was a living
person who could speak to the dead, now he is a dead person who can speak to the
living.  And the message is the same.  Something is meddling with the proper passage
of souls."
     Cloudrider shivered.  "But it isn't OUR problem...is it?  Something like that
needs, well, a paladin of Ahringol, maybe, or at least a shaman.  Where's Uncle Wolf
when we need him?  This should be HIS job!"
     "He is busy on another aspect of the problem," Joan said.  "You didn't think
harrowing hell would be simple, did you?"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in MORYA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Biff!  Pow!  MORYA watched with 
glee as FLOWERED HAMMERZ got knocked off top spot by THE PENTARCHY!  Ya gotta be 
quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  THE 
PENTARCHY is now ranked 1st with a 5-0-0 turn.  What's with SHARAPOVA?  She actually 
beat FILIPINA LADYZ's LADY ELMA, and walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at DODGE BULLETS.  CLOUDRIDER lost 10 points to OPASAN.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CLOUDRIDER will provide more easy wins...  I can barely 
restrain my enthusiam for THE PENTARCHY's outstanding member, Duelmaster VAIDISAVA.  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     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, PHANTACITY!  In my 
day, no team with a 39-38-7 would scare me off!  What's the problem, THE ANIMALS?  
How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, UDRI!  Don't make 
idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  KASAP didn't quite know what to make 
of a challenge he received from SURGICAL of STEEL AND SILK, who is 19 points below 
him.  SURGICAL perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was defeated by KASAP and 
ended up with 25 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  UDRI was plum wore out after VELVET FINISH pounded 'im silly 
in a Bloodfeud.  PHANTACITY'll have to get a little better before going after VELVET 
FINISH again!  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Hum, I took too many of these pills and fought with a weird weapon... -- Xanax

That Sran3e curiously named guy is tough:  I guess Vaidisava has to try again, but it
won't be easy! -- Le Pentarque

Well, Lorvandis, I'm not very good!  I did my best.... -- Trooper Ted

Udri -- I was wondering when we'd meet...not the outcome I'd hoped for *sigh*
farewell. -- Ghost of Damascus

Aard Vark -- I need to do something to beef up.  Push-ups perhaps? --Surgical

Mankiller -- Those darn Arenamasters are so biased! (I was NOT trying to 'bury you in
the sand' sis.)  Still, I do hope your jaw's all right.  Drinks are on me to make up
for it. -- Scarlet Rose

Pug -- All right now, in case you haven't figured it out yet, I am anticipating your
challenges.  I have a LOT of experience with your type, and I'd hate to start a
bloodfeud without reason.  Besides, your medical bill has got to be getting
astronomical. -- Velvet Finish

Cloudrider -- I'm not that frail, so you must be quite the physical specimen.  Still,
I accomplished what I sought to learn. -- Experientia

Toril Malik, that was quite an amusing observation on the nature of silence.  To
Vaidisava, if you're ever in Telorinthe, stop by Eldritch Concoctions for a free
drink.  Sran3e, I'm sure you wear armor, so stop on by Eldritch Arms and Armor when
you get the chance.  Venom, don't worry, 'Foot In Mouth Syndrome' (FIMS for short) is
something we all suffer from at times *rueful laugh* Let me know if you're still
haveing trouble obtaining the Alastari stuff, or if you've got any technical
questions.  If I don't have an answer, I can probably find someone who does.  One
last thing.  Is that you going tribal Z-Man?  Till next time, VALEO, my friends. --
Michael Eldritch, MGR Steel and Silk and others elsewhere.

Yadah -- My deliverance, perhaps, but apparently not yours.  If I could introduce to
your consciousness a strange concept, one perhaps unknown to you, try some body
armor.  It can help.  True, it can be ugly, but I never would have expected a golem
to care about that. -- Red Hawk

Pug -- Maybe when you grow up, you'll be, ah, more forceful?  Many people seem to
believe that.  I don't, myself, but then, I'm widely accounted odd.  Still, good try,
but a truly rotten match for you. -- Stormdancer

Green Rose Hammer -- May a thrip bite you on the underside of your leaves and suck
out your sap!  I'll come and LAUGH while it happens. -- Mankiller

Candace -- My grandfather strong advised me never to get involved with redheaded
women, and I see now EXACTLY what he meant!  I wouldn't be astonished to find that
you're a succubus! -- Lorvandis

Owl -- Tough luck for you, when it's obvious to all students of nature that you'd
probably be a natural for the Dark Arena, hmm? -- Cloudrider
