The Silent Place near Zuwayza:

     Blackwind looked at the hole in the fence, and at the roiling darkness just
beyond it.  The darkness looked back at him.  Push through that... thing?  That was
an idea that roused no enthusiasm at all.
     "Ah, one moment, I will attend to that," Vekhirn said.  He stepped between the
two gladiators and reached out, touching the bared blade that each held ready.
Muttered a few words under his breath.  A musical *ting* and a wash of golden light
down each blade, bright as sunlight for a moment, then fading--not going away, but
like a cat crouching down in front of a mouse hole to wait.  The mage stepped back.
"Most will not risk contact with your blades now, they cannot abide the sunlight, and
those that you must fight will be injured by it as plain steel could not not do.  I
call the favor of all gods upon you, for you are doing Their work.  Go now," he
smiled a little, "before you think better of it."
     Blackwind looked at the hole in the fence again and shrugged.  The thing beyond
it had backed off, so... might as well do it if he was going to.  He crouched a
little and turned sideways, leading with his sword, and slid through.  His shoulders
brushed against one of the iron spear-shafts that formed the uprights of the fence,
his chest scraped across the next one that had been bent to make a passage.  The dark
cloud moved farther away, its form boiling with agitation.  The Malcornishman stepped
out of the way so Redfox could come through.
     The Rirorni was bigger: taller, wider, thicker, and he got stuck.  Struggled,
grunting and muttering what sounded like curses in (presumably) Rirorni.  Blackwind
didn't feel inclined to take his eyes off the Thing facing them, but maybe he could
grab hold and pull...?  Another mutter from the mage, and a deep *tung* from the
fence, and Redfox was sprawled at his feet, still swearing but inside the fence.
     "Fare you well," the mage said behind them.
     A soundless compression of the air, as of a large door closing.  Blackwind
didn't have to look to know that the way back through the fence had been closed off.
     Redfox came up beside him.  "You've got the talisman, which way does it want us
to go?"
     Blackwind held it up.  It turned, twinkling, on the end of its chain, then
steadied and drifted forward and a little to the left, drawing the chain to an
unnatural angle.  Toward the cloud thing, of course.  Nothing was ever easy.  The two
gladiators walked towards it, slow but steady, swords at the ready and eyes never
still.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome MORYA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  EXPENSE ACCOUNT were a 
bunch of dogs after THE PENTARCHY got through with 'em!  5th ain't so sweet as 1st!  
Hmmmph!  I always thought EXPENSE ACCOUNT was an over-rated team and they proved it 
with a 1-2-0!  Some people say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I 
repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well PHANTACITY moved up 1, to 4th.  What's with VALERIAN? 
She actually beat PHANTACITY's SECI, and walked away with 24 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at STEEL AND SILK while they watched VALERIAN clobber SECI.  
He lost 38 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Apparently 
MORYA isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster 
got 4 challenges this turn!  MORYA has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get 
lazy.  It Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's SPYMASTER (0-0-0), which should prove 
(ahem!) interesting.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as SPYMASTER killed the 
Duelmaster, OTHER, leaving EXPENSE ACCOUNT in mourning.  So now CRICTOR UNGERER gets 
to be MORYA's Duelmaster.  But what comes around goes around.  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, FORCE OF FIVE!  In my 
day, no team with a 22-17-1 would scare me off!  What's the problem, SONS OF MARS?  
POGODI of PHANTACITY knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged LOURDEPATTE of THE 
PENTARCHY who is up by 18.  Now was this a wise move?  POGODI perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he subdued LOURDEPATTE and ended up with 43 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
MORYA is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Uh, Crictor, if you are going to be THAT difficult, I just may not challenge you
again.  Whew!  That was close. -- Other, Duelmaster

Phantacity -- Your Pipni is a dirty, rotten killer!  Now there will be no more
Training.  Perhaps my Expense Accounts can make it up to you by killing one of yours
or by making sure your expenditures don't get paid? -- Finance Manager,

For those interested, Training was a 11-3-17-15-11-14-13 (+4 def) striker with great
damage and very little endurance.  Training's stats indicate why it was susceptible
to a one-hit death. -- Finance Manager
P.S.  Thanks, Pipni; the replacement was definitely better.

Anferrous -- You were much more than I could handle.  You were just better in every
way.  Salute, -- Rental Car

Cloudrider -- I tried.  I really did.  But I didn't do a very good job of dodging the
bullets, did I? -- Postage

     Through rain, snow, sleet, but not bullets?

Stonewalker -- This was the day we wash our clothes, wash our clothes, etc, etc. --
Laundry

Now it will be someone else's turn to be DM and write DM columns. -- Other (quite
relieved and already virtually retired)

It could have been a glorious turn... a 5-0 with plenty of titles, but... but...
again... he was there...  Other spoiled our day!  I can't believe the outcome of that
fight... how did he win that one?  Damn.  He is invincible, at least. -- Le
Pentarque, in awe.
P.S.  Good luck among the immortals, mighty one!

Condolences, Dodge Bullets.  Lorvandis was almost a friend. -- LP

Well, Training, I should have trained you a little more, I guess! -- Lourdepatte

Cincimatus -- You have been a thorn in my and my team's side but no more! -- Deael

Rental Car -- I wondered when you'd come to square our account. -- Cascella

Postage -- I don't use forever stamps.  Next time I plan to do the licking and
sticking. -- Theriault

Tez -- I'm starting to get the feeling you guys think I'm just a pushover.  Seems I'm
going to have to keep coming till I get a W vs. one of you. -- Chandalen

Stonewalker -- A leaden foot!  I've had that affliction a few times. -- Jennsen

M. Chardinee -- A Dwarf?  I was at eye level.  I don't feel that short. -- Scarlet

Jorja -- Do you know where a guy can get a "Stable Managers for Dummies" book?  Not
sure I'm cut out for this. -- Colle Ketor

Other -- Congratulations!  Enjoy the perks that go with your position. -- Colle Ketor

Cascella -- Another day you might win, but today was mine. -- Blood Hawk

Seci -- That was seriously annoying.  Don't do it again. -- Ghost of Lorvandis

Postage -- Well, what did you expect?  You are a stamp, so I licked you. --
Cloudrider

Laundry -- Not in public! -- Stonewalker

Deael -- To the arena?  Yes, it's a hard life.  But some will survive it. -- Madeline

Our congratulations to Other. -- Jorja and Dodge Bullets

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
-- Fizban the Famous
