in another place:

     Math op Owain, riding behind Lord Malcorn and Uncle Wolf, was trying to look in
every direction at once.  His companions had assured him that there would be physical
threats, and physical threats were his business here.  He felt inadequate to face
those probably-numerous threats alone, but what else was new?  He had it to do.
     Because he was looking around, he was the first to see three people--human-
looking people--scrambling down one side of the valley and waving their arms.
Probably shouting, but he couldn't hear anything except an endless waterfall/wildfire
sort of roar coming out of the doorway.  "More gladiators!" he said, staring.
Remembering the problem, he looked to the sides and behind before turning back toward
them.  "I recognize the one in the lead--Young Joan, from Morya--"
     Uncle Wolf didn't look around, but he grunted in satisfaction.  "Good.  I
started some coming from another direction, glad they made it.  You'll have help on
the defense, Math."
     "That might make the difference," Math said.  "I was a little worried about...
things."  After a moment he added, "I can't watch everywhere at once."
     Wolf glanced at him and smiled grimly.  "If you'd had to do it alone, you would
have managed.  I was in no doubt of that."
     "I was," Math muttered.  He surveyed the surroundings again.  It seemed wrong,
too easy, that they should be able to ride up to the doorway unopposed.  Not even
seeing anyone.  Somewhere an ambush was waiting for them.

The Silent Place near Zuwayza:

     After Agro left, Blackwind didn't have much to do except stay alert and watch
for something approaching this hole in the fence from either direction.  Eyes in the
back of his head would have been useful.  Or a long dry season making the leaves on
the ground crackly, to warn of anything coming through the trees.  But the leaves
were sodden with weeks of rain and snow; there would be no sound from them.
     There was no sound from them, and yet when the gladiator turned in his regular
visual round, there was Redfox coming along the fence.  Blackwind scanned his
companion quickly.  It looked like the Rirorni had minor injuries, major worries.
Presumably Agro was guarding the main gate now.
     "We have to go inside," Redfox said without preliminaries.
     Blackwind blinked.  "Why?  And what about guarding the gates?"  He glanced
toward the hole in the fence.  The roiling cloud was still there just inside.
Waiting.
     "Vekhirn--"  He sighed suddenly and scrubbed a hand across his face.  "Uncle
Wolf gave me the names of some people who could be trusted, if we encountered them,
and one is this Vekhirn, a Karnhorn magician."  He noticed Blackwind's skeptical
expression and grimaced.  "Yeah, I know, trust a Karnhorn?  But Wolf said this one's
okay.  And he... I guess I'd say he 'feels' okay to me.  He says we have to go into
the Silent Place, there's a portal in there somewhere that we have to go through.
Because Uncle Wolf and Lord Malcorn need us... somewhere."
     "You agreed to this?"
     "I guess, for me, anyway.  I've had a feeling that something was, I dunno, not
exactly wrong but coming to a climax, and I should be there to help.  And I do trust
this guy to be telling true, partly because of what I was already feeling."
     "Okay."  Blackwind nodded and squared his shoulders.  "If you go, I go, too.
But what about guarding the perimeter of the Silent Place?"
     "Agro will stay here, and Vekhirn has committed himself to staying here, too.
He says his spells will work for this, even if he can't seal the barrier permanently.
He--  Here he comes now.  You can ask him yourself."
     The man coming toward them was physically a typical Karnhorn, medium height,
slim, dark, with a beak of a nose and sharp, narrow eyes.  His clothing and
accessories were typical of all magicians, robe with symbols on it, tall pointed hat
(it had a turban wound round the base, but he was, after all, a Karnhorn), carved
staff with a crystal on the top.  He looked determined.
     "You must go at once," he said.  "The Malcorn needs you--"
     "It's taken him a while to get wherever he is," Blackwind objected.  "How're we
going to get there in time to do him any good?"
     "He had to go there," the magician explained.  He was more patient than either
gladiator would have expected.  "He had to find the way, because the Spirit Lands are
always in flux.  But you do not have to find the way, I have a talisman that will
take you directly to the Malcorn, wherever he may be."  He pulled a small teardrop of
crystal out of some hidden pocket of his robe.  It was suspended from a fine golden
chain, and it glittered like a fallen star in the moonlight.  "This will be your
guide, and it will take you to the Malcorn."
     Blackwind glanced at Redfox.  The Rirorni seemed calm but tense.  Resolved.  He
was going.  And where a Rirorni led, surely a man of Malcorn would not stay behind.
He nodded.  "Will that thing help us find the portal we need inside the Silent
Place?"
     Something that might have been relief flitted across the magician's face,
covered quickly with professional calm.  "Yes, it will.  To walk side by side will be
enough in most places, but when you pass through the portal and any similar magical
structure, you must be in contact with each other if you are not to become
separated."
     Fighting the conviction that he was making a mistake, Blackwind reached out and
took the talisman by the chain.  It was heavier than he had expected of such a little
thing.  "We go back and enter the Silent Place through the main gate?"
     "That is not necessary.  You can enter here quite well, and then I will seal it
behind you."

     Larkin here once again, with more interviews from the tourney.  This time I'm
talking to a new manager, so new he doesn't even have a manager name.  "Sir... what
would you like me to call you, by the way?"
     "Why do you have to call me anything?  I don't understand why you want to
interview me.  There are lots of great managers here who could probably tell you
stuff--"
     "I'm looking for a new perspective, the point of view of someone who is just
starting out with the gladiatorial games."
     "Oh.  Well, I guess that would be me."
     "Absolutely right!  Tell me, what do you think of the tourney?  This is your
first, right?"
     "Right, my first," the young man agreed.  "And it's GREAT!  Everyone is just
great here!  I mean, most of these managers, they're, like, legends, you know?
Everybody's heard of them, and they have stables of HUNDREDS of gladiators, and
they've been polishing their tricks for YEARS, and I didn't figure I had much of a
chance, you know?"
     "The popular view is that no matter how much you know, the arena can always
throw a surprise at you--"
     "Yeah, yeah, I've heard that.  I don't know if I believe it, but I've heard it.
But that isn't the best thing about this tourney.  The best thing is that everyone
here has been GREAT.  Or else I didn't meet them--the ones that might not have been.
But I think I met just about everyone, and--"
     "And they were great.  I'm glad.  But perhaps you could tell our readers a
little more, maybe tell them how these experienced managers were great to you?"
     "Well, yeah, okay.  It's that everyone was so friendly and helpful, see?  The
ENTIRE Consortium talked to me about warrior design, for instance.  I learned a lot
there.  And, well, there was Mannequin, and The Greek Guy, and I actually met
Manager, too!  And they were all really helpful.  Advice, you know, and charts, and
all that stuff that was so confusing.  It was just the best experience!  I'm going to
do it again, for sure!"

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am glad to be back.  Lucky, lucky me.  But that tussle with Valerian took
everything out of me, so expect a very short DM Column.  (If I quit now, would that
be really, really short?)
     So for your reading pleasure, here are the combines starting stats of the
current Expense Accounts.  Maybe publishing it will help us find more in the budget.
     ST- 10,11,11,11,11
     CN- 3,12,15,16,17
     SZ- 6,12,14,15,17
     WT- 10,10,15,17,21
     WL- 7,7,11,16,20
     SP- 4,5,9,14,14
     DF- 7,9,13,13,17
I sure hope this helps the budget!
     Good luck to all.  When I next fight in Morya as Duelmaster, I will have
participated in the Winter Face.  Second thought, I hope I am still alive and here
after that!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of MORYA.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  THE CONDEMNED after a 
sorry 2-3-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 
'Can't fight no more' blues!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a 
perceptive observation?) as FORCE OF FIVE can attest...  THE PENTARCHY posted a nice 
gain, to come in 3rd.  Everybody loves a winner...  PHANTACITY had cause to 
celebrate, after SECI got 29 points by beating LORVANDIS.  Duelmaster OTHER from 
EXPENSE ACCOUNT is going for the gold, as it challenged THE PENTARCHY's CRICTOR 
UNGERER.  Ooh, the excitement!  CRICTOR UNGERER found out that MORYA isn't a 
democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in 
MORYA is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of SONS OF MARS, alone and unchallenged.  As 
a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of FORCE OF FIVE, so did that sorry 
team shy from SONS OF MARS Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and PYRITE is it 
right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't STEEL AND SILK proud!  Call 'im brash!  
Call 'im brassy!  Call 'im brave!  Call 'im sassy!  IWRON DESTUDE will face 
VRTOGLAVA, up by 29.  Aaaah, just call 'im dead meat.  Like a fly challenging a 
flyswatter, IWRON DESTUDE challenged VRTOGLAVA, and got squashed.  We sadists got a 
kick out it!  (as did IWRON DESTUDE) NENA VIXIN challenged PYRITE!  Who says THE 
CONDEMNED are just a bunch of wimps!  NENA VIXIN of THE CONDEMNED kept hers wits as 
she won victory over PYRITE.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Congratulations, SECI.  The manager of DODGE BULLETS should have sent 
LORVANDIS to the Dark Arena for having a 20-25-0 long ago.  I get a special thrill 
from seeing innocent spawn like TRAINING from EXPENSE ACCOUNT get pointlessly killed. 
Good show, PIPNI!  (No mercy.) Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself 
must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in MORYA is the highlight of my life.  My fingers tire 
and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for MORYA?  On 
that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Congratulations to Lord Protector Surgical who just cut to the chase. -- Finance
Manager.S. Michael,
P.S.  Kennelworth sends his regards in return.

Flen Asail -- Simply put, I took you to the cleaners.  Maybe next time, eh? --
Laundry

Theriault -- Some might say that was sealed with a kiss.  I, however, think it was
merely pasted with glue, and rather weakly at that. -- Postage

Lourdette -- Fine challenge and fine win.  With that great execution, perhaps you
should be the trainer? -- Training

Cascella -- I simply had to get my hands on headlights like those. -- Rental Car

Valerian -- Today was my day.  The next one is more than likely yours. -- Other

Force Of Five 3-1-1!?  Pentarchy 4-1-0?!  Wow!  I am avoiding! -- Finance Manager

Le Pentarque -- It is not always the X's that matter, but sometimes the O's. --
Finance Manager (re: Other)

Black Widows -- Glad to have you in Morya.  May your stay be long and prosperous. --
The Expense Accounts

Congrats, Finance Manager... what a management!  You own the place and the titles...
I tried to do something about it, but well, I must tighten my expenses if I want to
compete. -- Le Pentarque

Blood Hawk -- You fight like a Blood Dog.  You deserved this one. -- Patte de Saguar

Quintus -- Did you believe it when came the end of the fight?  I didnt! -- White Bect
the knacky

Other or another? -- Crictor

Anferous -- I was wondering, does your skin, hide, whatever you want to call it, have
an armor class rating? -- Lorvandis

Patte de Saguar -- I read about a man who was "patted" by a saguaro once.  It fell on
him and killed him.  Those suckers are heavy when they get big, I think that one was
weighed at two tons when they dragged it off, and with their shallow root systems,
well, you just want to watch out! -- Blood Hawk

Lucius Sulla -- Do you have golden hair, like the poem?  It would be interesting to
see a man with golden hair to that degree. -- Madeline

Jennsen -- I suppose it takes all kinds to make a world, but sometimes I do wonder
why. -- Stonewalker

Porcupine -- Seems like I'll do okay as long as I don't try to hug you.  Since I
didn't want to hug you anyway, this is not a handicap. -- Cloudrider

Surgical -- I bet you WERE trying to kill.  Because you're leaving and you don't NEED
me any longer. -- Lorvandis, feeling gloomy and bereft
