     "If you can't tell me where I'm going, can you at least tell me who I'm supposed
to help?" Redfox asked, exasperated.
     Uncle Wolf grinned, looking suddenly very like his namesake animal.  "I'm
sending you to Raigavor the Unholy," Uncle Wolf said.
     Redfox frowned.  "The Red Wizard of Trocar?  What do we have to do with Trocar,
or unholy wizards?"
     "Raigavor is not unholy," Wolf answered.  "He's just called that by people who
have no understanding of...things.  And I have found him a useful ally from time to
time.  He has given aid when I needed it.  Therefore, when he needs help, I will give
it to him."
     "So, help him," Redfox said, "but why send me?"
     "Because he asked for a strong and courageous swordsman.  Don't worry about the
tricky thinking, 'Fox," the old shaman added with another grin.  "Raigavor will
handle that part.  Now, take your position."
     Aware that further argument would be useless, and further questions would go
unanswered, Redfox stepped to the point the shaman indicated.  He didn't like
anything about this business, but the habit of obedience to Wolf was strong in him.
     The shaman poured something from a leather bottle onto the grooves he'd cut in
the snow, and it ran hissing and crackling along them, nothing to see but a quivering
shimmer of color, and yet....  Redfox twitched and just managed not to leap away when
the shimmer reached his position.  Wolf was muttering and tapping on a small drum
with his fingertips.
     The snowy clearing at the edge of the woods tilted and slipped away, leaving the
gladiator suspended in a glittering darkness.

     Redfox couldn't remember clearly what it had been like, last time, when he'd
traveled through the Spirit Land to some...other place.  Maybe no one who entered the
Spirit Land while living could remember it, except a shaman.  But he didn't think it
had been like this...whirlpool of stars.  Or sparks.  Or...he couldn't tell what they
were.  Didn't want to know.  What if they were...souls?  He was just a hunter, a
warrior, he didn't have anything to do with souls.
     Oh, yes?  Then why did he even think of them?  What was Uncle Wolf involving him
in?
     A sound, a single, shimmering note that shook his bones.  Shook the darkness and
the points of lights.
     And the darkness tilted and slipped away in its turn.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Ok.  So my manager, Sovereign, says to me that I am close to challenge the outgoing
Duelmaster.  I didn't know much about Kojiro but I said to myself "What the Hell!  I
might as well try."  I didn't think the fight would go that quickly.  Now I find
myself in a rather dangerous spot.  I am now the Duelmaster with 3 very experienced
fighters below me.  I don't give myself very good odds against any of them but I have
to try and decide who I will defend against.  Juniban fought my a few turns ago and
embarrassed me pretty good, so I think maybe an avoid is in order.  Solar Flare and
Gallienus have an ungodly amount of fights between them.  I will challenge both and
see who I match up with.  With any luck, I hope to return as the champ.  Good luck to
all.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LAPUR games.  Fortune did not smile upon EQUESTORS 
this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 10th position in the wake of a 1-4-0 
round.  My praise to MEN for their 3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a 
skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  WHIRLWIND caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested GALLIENUS and was awarded 24 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WHIRLWIND put down 
GALLIENUS, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Most watched 
of the fights this week, the spotlight was on SOLAR FLARE as she bore arms against 
the challenge of reigning Duelmaster AGASAYA.  The city has turned out in honor of 
SOLAR FLARE, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in LAPUR 
seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In LAPUR "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  LAPUR, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is STREET WALKERS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding STREET WALKERS.  Indeed it was WILL DUEL 4 MEAD.  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  SOLAR FLARE take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in LAPUR.  I cannot but express pride for 
the fearlessness of GOO II who cast caution to the winds and challenged CAMULUS, a 
fighter 28 points higher.  I must admit to some joy.  Before my very eyes the 
underdog in this contest, GOO II, defeated CAMULUS to claim victory and recognition.  
A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that ENYALIUS 
posted a challenge against the more highly recognized ANKAA.  The results, you ask?  
Well, the firebrand ENYALIUS won victory over ANKAA.  Remember warriors, this is the 
discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  This week marked the last days of 
POSTUMUS who at 6-11-3 was dispatched to the Dark Arena by the command of EQUESTORS' 
demanding management.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in LAPUR.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Aureolus -- No problem on the learns, but like most bashers I know you can talk too
much.  Just swing your blade and you'll do fine I'm sure. -- Pier

On another note I love it when I get lots of learns, I had a basher in another arena
just get 4 attack skills in a round...I wonder what his fav skill is heh.  After this
tourney I will be running more warriors here, some of warriors are taking have taken
a break for the last few weeks, but they will be back. -- Xoan mgr. of the Follower's
of Xoan
P.S.  Gregor's replacement didn't work out, so I'm still looking for a 5th warrior.

Wendy -- I'll trade you 3 to 1 like that any time, lol.  I was a little worried for a
while. -- Zugaa

Street Walking-slime manager -- LOL!!  We have no other option than to conclude you
are in fact a world-class moron.  You leave us with no doubt that any intelligent
communication with you is a pointless endeavor.  Repeatedly demonstrating your
complete inability to respond to the simplest dialogue, we will now give you no
further opportunity for redemption.  You are now to be treated as totally incompetent
and given no quarter.  Good luck in the future.  We're coming after you. -- the
samurai dressed entirely in black.

Will Duel For Mead -- We threw a party to celebrate getting our charter.  You all
claimed Top Team to celebrate getting your charter...hard to tell who had more fun. -
- the Escapade Bunch

Vega -- Now that's just rude and shouldn't have happened as it happened.  But as it
happens I've a trick up my sleeve...happenstance, don't think it'll be that easy
again. -- Betty, I put the Boom in Ba-Boom

Red Lily -- I'm feeling a draft...do you feel a draft? -- Petunia

Zero Visibility -- Fogbound, but I'm hear to help...clear your sinuses I mean.  Ha! -
- S'tou

Aronwe -- Okay pard-ner, you done met the new me.  An near as I kin tell that should
be all the stat'n I'm a needin fer awhile.  *knock knock*  (never say never) --
Sparkle Farkle
P.S.  Of course, since this is the new me I could use some new fighting togs.  Tell
you what, do us a fav and drop a hint about the shabbiness of my apparel around the
Head Cheese and I'll reciprocate in kind.  Some how.

Cloud Tiger -- Come on down to the lumber mill, you can ride piggyback on the
buzzsaw. -- Buzzsaw

Your Mama -- Sorry about that shoulder.  Hope you recover soon. -- Agasaya

Miss Conduct -- I could never have killed a woman of your class or caliber. -- Mentu

Spartacus -- Cicero fought with honor.  I regret the loss it has cost you and your
team. -- Enyalius

Cezzaro -- Don't worry.  I am trying out for my new team.  Gods of Knitting.  Care to
join? -- Camulus

Venus -- Sometimes things happen that's beyond our control.  Morrigan had no
intentions of ending the fight that way.  As for being prepared, well, she will be
waiting on the sands for your bloodfeud. -- Sovereign

Brickhouse -- Jeez you can really take some punishment. -- Camulus

Kojiro -- Sorry about the graduation present.  Good luck in ADM. -- Agasaya

Eldacar -- I would comment on the fight but it would probably be longer than the
fight.  Well fought. -- Mentu

Solar Flare -- You could have at least let my blink. -- Morrigan

Rewrite -- What can I say.  You beat me with style. -- Enyalius

Tye Foon -- You know, I really don't mind if all my losses come from Force of Nature.
I don't.  No really, I'm serious.  I have to tell you, when you balance just as many
wins against a team as you do losses..  It's not that bad.  :) -- Tessa

Energizer Bunny -- I said NO gushers.  Geesh! -- Kyoko (trying to spit shine her
armor)

Whirlwind -- I take it the result wasn't what you were expecting with our little
fray.  I mean you had a 32 fight advantage.  32?!?!  You were dueling when I was
still in diapers.  Smarter, stronger, more experience, you were the number one
contender to the throne at the time after all.  Well, sorry to dash those dreams of
capturing it for the time being.  I will give you credit you did have me worried
there for a moment when you got up from the sands after that first shot.  Just didn't
think you would sit back down on your rump so soon.  So um ya, thanks for the points
& learn, big guy. :) -- Tessa

Lynx -- Pretty kitty.  Goo love you, Goo pet you, Goo call you George. -- Goo

Storm Front -- Well, let's see what's on the menu of revenge.  The appetizer was
served to your liking I take it, but that second helping just isn't quite right
sitting well and a trip to the vomitorium is in order.  Knowing not to say when, a
third trip to the all you can eat salad bar is in order, I assume.  Be warned, it may
or may not go down well depending how many rats are in the kitchen.  Finally if
dessert is in order, my friend, may I suggest just take a pass and give your
compliments to the chef.  Or you could be washing the dishes to pay the bill. --
Tessa
P.S.  Oh and about that shadow, thanks to Whirlwind it just got a whole lot
smaller...it's still there though.

Urat -- You're pretty impressive.  You beat me with your first swing...of course that
wasn't until minute four of the fight. -- Fyre Raynes

Fyre -- Don't be sore. -- Storm Front

Siren -- Thanks for all the learns. -- Tye Foon

Tessa -- I have to say, I am surprised that you overcame the experience difference,
but you have earned my respect. -- Whirlwind

Tessa -- Great, you beat my big brother.  How can I ever hope to beat you. -- Zero

Zugaa -- Don't you know how to fall down! -- Wendy Day

S'Tou -- I hope those learns come in handy, but I do not think you really need them.
-- Zero

Lapur -- Ah, the party is over.  Now the Force is performing within expectations. --
Storm Front, mgr. Force of Nature

Brickhouse -- Hey...my visibility is so poor I misspelled my own name when entering
this career! -- Zero

Sporkis -- Short on personals?!  To hear your wench speak that is not all you are
short on. -- Storm Front

Tessa -- You are more than welcome to lighten your armor and try for a third time.  I
do not mind giving you all three of your loses.  As for dueling for that side...have
you looked at yourself in the mirror lately?  Anyone in their right mind would switch
to the other side if you were the only offer. -- Tye

Ladybug -- It is my intention to not fight you again in this arena unless initiated
by you.  So, with that being said, maybe you can sew up my torn leather breast plate.
-- Whirlwind

Cardow Hunters -- Grats on Kojiro's grad. -- Storm Front, mgr. Force of Nature

Snowshoe -- If you can teach this old dog so many new tricks, I welcome all matches
against you! -- -Mensa

Postumus -- Thought you had me there didn't ya? -- Ankaa

Ba-Boom Betty -- Not sure what to say about that fight except it was short. -- Vega

Morrigan -- I don't think my manager is done with you yet.  Carina was a favorite of
hers. -- Solar Flare

Goo II -- Ya know with all that goo it took twice the strength to pull my weapon back
for the next swing, nice strategy....  I need a bath. -- Lynx

Jason -- (recoiling)  If you think I'm going to let you into my bathtub, you'd better
think again!  I'm not about to get Medea stirred up against me. -- Ladybug

Mensa -- Incredible as it seems to both of us (and probably our managers, at the
least, MY manager), I appear to be sort-of-reliably better at this than you are.  I'm
not sure what's WRONG here, but I'm just going to enjoy it while it lasts. --
Snowshoe
P.S.  But it would please me and be an honor to me if you would consent to have lunch
with me at that little place on the waterfront.  The Crown of Pearls, I think they
call it, raw fish (euwh, NOT my thing, though many swear by it), sweet pastries, and
ninety-nine flavors of tea?

Aureolus -- Some kind of golden glow?  Not that *I* noticed any golden glow.  More
like a bloody haze.  Ouch. -- Cezzaro

Petunia -- I had to chop you down!  A frilly flower with a vicious grin was just...
(shudder) horrid to contemplate. -- Red Lily

Buzzsaw -- (staggering back)  You've got more teeth than I do!  And how do you get
them to MOVE like that?  It's unnatural.  It's all WRONG. -- Cloud Tiger

Storm Front -- Well, I could have avoided him, or at least tried to, but I didn't.
So no sweat.  It isn't like he killed me. -- Ladybug

Venus -- (nod)  Sometimes the available pool for new gladiators is...thin. -- Uncle
Wolf

Snowshoe -- Most don't seem to notice.  And yes, with both hands, I'd make minced
gladiator of everyone here.  But I signed a contract. -- Ahlan Nabandal, Veteran
Mercenary

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
