     Thunder hammered the shore, no less violent than the waves that roared in off
the Storm Sea.  Agro waded out of the surf and crossed the narrow strip of sand to
the trees, then lowered his bundle of clothes and weapons.  His teammate Bindi
followed.  They dressed quickly, although the strobing of the lightning was more
hindrance than help.
     "If there's any shore-watchers, they'll have seen us," Agro muttered, his deep
voice almost lost beneath the fury of the storm.
     "If they're paying attention," Bindi said.  "A night like this, mammals stay
indoors."  Her grin was a flash of white teeth.  "They don't like to get wet."  She
shook herself once to settle clothes and armor.  "Good thing WE don't care."
     "It's an edge," Agro agreed.  Most of his attention was on the shore and the
woods, searching for problems that would need to be dealt with.  Problems such as
watchers.  He flexed one hand.  He could deal with that kind of problems.  "You
     "Then let's go."  He moved deeper into the woods.  It wasn't a true forest, just
a belt of trees between the shore and the road that ran up the peninsula to
Monuntial.  But it was thick enough to provide cover for them.  And for anybody who
might be waiting and watching.  Any kind of assault on the occupied city would come
from the shore.  Watchers would be in the woods along the shore.  He wanted to get
away from this danger zone.  A fight here would be stupid.  It wouldn't accomplish
anything useful--
     Agro had one hand in front of him so as not to run into a tree.  The hand came
against something warm.  His fingers closed in a crushing grip on something that
struggled.  A blast of lightning more violent than any before tore the sky beyond the
trees, but under their dense cover there was only darkness, and something that
thrashed against the Croc's grip.  After a minute or two, the struggling faded, then
     Agro dropped whatever it was, whoever it was, and went the rest of the way
through the belt of trees, sliding into the last cover at the edge of the road.
Presently he sensed someone beside him and knew it was Bindi, because there was none
of the cloud of heat that accompanied a mammal at all times.  Wasteful, that was,
heat should be conserved.  But useful now.  He'd heard that some of these elves could
"see" heat.  But they wouldn't see a Croc.
     He couldn't exchange words with her here and be sure that she'd hear...and no
one else.  But it didn't matter.  Their plan had been worked out long before they
left the ship out on the lake and swam ashore.  They weren't even both needed to
carry it out, each was backup for the other.  If either one got through to Monuntial
and completed the mission, it would be enough.  But Agro intended that they both
survive, both succeed.  People said that the cold-blooded Crocs also had cold
emotions, but that wasn't true.  Bindi was a teammate, a friend, a female of his
species who were too few in number in this world.  He wouldn't lose her.
     When he was sure the road was clear, he dashed across it, caught a glimpse of
movement out of the corner of his eye--not Bindi, something else--and dived into the
ditch on the other side.  Water and mud.  His clothes were soaked at once, and mud
oozed between his armor and his body.  A nuisance, that.  He considered discarding
clothes and armor both.  No, better not, unless they became an actual problem.
Discomfort he could live with, and the clothes would make it easier to slip into the
occupied city without arousing comment.  Even wet, muddy clothes wouldn't stir
comment on a night like this.
     He had no sense of Bindi joining him in the ditch and decided she must have
retreated into the trees.  Damn.  He couldn't go off and leave her; he'd have to wait
till she came over the road herself.  He should never have agreed to let her come on
this insane adventure.
     Agro couldn't hear anything but wind and rain and thunder, and the water running
in the ditch around him.  What had he glimpsed on the road?  Had it passed, or gone
back?  Were there other watchers?  He had to know.
     Moving slowly, to attract as little attention as possible if there was anyone to
see, he raised his head to the lip of the ditch and squinted into the rain.  Looked
straight across.  Nothing.  Turned slowly to the right to look in the direction of
Monuntial.  Something, moving away.  He couldn't judge the distance in this
unreliable light.  A hundred yards?  If so, it was big, a wagon, maybe.  No, it
didn't move like a wagon, it moved like something alive.  But it was going away, so
it wasn't the problem of the moment.  Turned slowly to the left.  Nothing.  Searched
the darkness under the trees where Bindi was.  Should be, anyway.  Must be.  Nothing.
     Something stepped out.  Not Bindi, he saw that at once.  Taller, broader, and it
moved differently.  Lightning glared off it.  Fully armored?  No, by the First Egg,
it was a golem!  His mind flipped over from rational thought to blind fury.  He hated
golems, all Crocs did.  He gathered his limbs under him to attack.
     The golem gestured, and another emerged onto the road, carrying Bindi.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Say hello to my new teammate Victorinus.  He had a very auspicious start with a
win over Irritated Housewife.  Irritated Husband is making the funeral arrangements.
Say goodbye to Crispus.  He was beaten by Lucy and his 3-9 record indicates he does
not have the aptitude for the arena.  Believe me, I know, we, his teammates have
tried everything, but no good.  So we will accompany him to the Dark Arena to witness
his last fight.  I will then retire to the "Bent Gladius" and party hearty.  Let me
see, who is going to unseat me, Enoshima--nah he is Black Samurai.  They are afraid
of us, Short-Tailed and Southeastern Shrew took a vacation this turn.  Guess they
didn't want to face Tall Tree.  Least Shrew fought this turn but the recognition
difference is huge.  How about ECHL-EAST not taking revenge.  I thought the guys in
the East Coast Hockey League were tougher than that.  Oh well, someone else will
probably be doing this column next turn.


                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Coming up with a solid 0-0-0 outing, SHREW CAN 
IT BE NOW has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
DOMITIAN, who flew up 12 points in the rankings after mashing BARNEY like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was BARNEY, who 
dropped 9 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with DOMITIAN.  Going 
for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was CROC FILES' AMIE, who 
was turned away from the Duelmastership by MUCIANUS.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the LAPUR arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad SHREW CAN IT BE  NOW?  Big bad SHREW CAN 
IT BE NOW.  Big bad SHREW CAN IT BE NOW.  LAPUR's afraid of the big bad SHREW CAN IT 
BE NOW.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause DARK GLORY beats feet every time SHREW CAN IT BE NOW smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of BLACK TIGER, who 
was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 'touched' 
warrior, CHARLIE went after BLACK TIGER, who was higher by 21 points.  Well, when the 
dust settled, CHARLIE lost to BLACK TIGER.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  This week 3-10-0 CRISPUS was sent to the 
Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice of 
this.  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 LAPUR have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

soil my hands, or rather, my blade, with such a mundane and inept creature.... --

I didn't realize Lapur was civilized enough to have Embezzling Scribes.  I must be
moving in the wrong company.  Guess I'd better work on that. -- Walks Softly

Macrinus -- Why?  Do you hanker to read occult horror stories?  It could probably be
arranged. -- Tall Tree
P.S.  No doubt you'll get another winning streak going.  Where as I will be headed to

Agro and Bindi -- Depending on one or two circumstances beyond my control, such as
whether the power goes off, or the dam bursts upstream of my house, etc., there might
be something this time.  If so, of course, you will have seen it by the time you get

                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
     warrior, of course, is accounted the winner.
11.  All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be
     awarded to the winners of the contest.


     As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded
to the first and second place managers.  So the majority and minority of the rollups
will be determined when all are accumulated.
     Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates
     Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates
     So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be
a fierce and challenging contest.  <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE CONTEST IS
