     Dalton sighed deeply before he continued.  "We noticed a change in Galen's
moods.  We thought it was a young boy growing up, forging his own way.  At times he
would disappear for long hours and sleep late into the morning.  As Galen later told
me, he felt compelled to take long walks near his uncle each time and sometimes he'd
meet a man that seemed a friend and he would tell him things.  Khulari began by
having Galen perform simple deeds:  stealing items from vendors, bullying other kids,
and even harming himself.  All of this was a test to find the extent of his control.
By this time though, Galen knew something was wrong.  He first questioned his own
sanity, but he's a good solid boy, especially in values and loyalty.  He tried to
tell his mother, only to find that he couldn't.  I believe about that time he
suspected magic and the culprit as the strange man he spoke to.  Then, the compulsion
came to find his uncle.  That day Galen trained as usual, but talked Trocar into
using real weapons.  The deception and ferocity of Galen's attacks took him by
surprise and wounded him badly, and as the killing blow was given, the control was
lifted temporarily.  Galen's mother had witnessed the end in shock."
     Gavin looked back at Galen, seeing his fist clenched tightly and jaw set.  The
look in his dark eyes only hinted at the pain, helplessness and horror of that day.
     "Galen had wished to become a knight, and maybe even a paladin in time.  This
stain on his soul, the social ridicule would stifle that dream.  Galen threw down the
weapon and ran, hiding for days in mourning and rage, until hunger drew him home.
His mother was worried, but had managed to have the accident quelled.  She couldn't
quell the peoples' questions, nor her own, and Galen, though he tried, could not
respond.  For weeks, Galen suffered.  He began prayer and seeking comfort and aid in
the gods.  He went through the agony of recalling every detail and finally, succumbed
to it, forcing himself to remember.  His one hope was that his father, Hador, might
soon return, and with his knowledge of magic, recognize there was something amiss.
     "Galen watched the roads and waited.  He had no one to talk with.  Others
avoided him, even more so now.  Then, the urges returned, along with Khulari.  Galen
had grown stronger through his ordeal, and probably with the gods' intervention.  He
could now fight.  The battle of wills lasted hours, often followed by excruciating
headaches that left him sick and weary.  Galen began to have hope that he could win.
All the pain in the world would be worth the victory.  Then, one day it didn't come.
Confidently, Galen headed to the tavern, where his mother worked.  She would be
getting ready to open, and it looked a fine day for business.  Only then did Galen
see the man, Khulari, enter inside, and his pulse quickened with rage and fear."
     Galen arose, and all eyes followed him reflexively.  Gavin could see the marks
of pain and inner turmoil these events had left on the boy.  Only sixteen, a
gladiator.  This was no boy.  He'd lost his childhood long ago.  The thought made
Gavin sad, and in retrospect, he was just a boy, hell-bent on growing up.  Gavin
hadn't had anything bad like that happen to him, but he definitely wasn't a normal
child.  'Would I miss being a kid when I grow up?' he asked himself.  Maybe some
people never completely grow up.
     Galen threw open the window shutters and leaned his hands on the window sill,
dropping his head.  The weariness and self-damnation were as clear as day.
     A breeze swept by, cool and moist, with the smell of fresh rain.  The
chair creaked as Dalton leaned back, and with a gentle gesture, he continued.
     "Khulari sought to cover his tracks.  He had murdered Trocar and hoped to have
placed blame on Galen, but didn't count on Galen going free.  He had to make sure no
one would ever believe Galen, or kill him.  I don't know why he favored not killing
Galen, but I think with Galen resisting and his abilities, Khulari was unsure of the
outcome.  When Galen walked in, he saw Khulari with his blade drawn, facing his
mother.  Then the compulsion came back, stronger than ever, now that the man was so
close.  The man wanted Galen to kill his mother.  He felt powerless, with tears
streaming down his face as he approached her.  By now his mother, being rather
bright, began putting pieces together.  She told Galen to fight, but he just couldn't
anymore.  It was too hard.  Then Khulari pressed the cold steel of a sword into
Galen's hand.  It felt comfortable, and without looking, Galen knew that it was the
same sword that he'd used to kill his uncle.  'It began with the sword and it will
end with the sword,' the man said.  'Now kill her.'"
     "I prayed," Galen said as he turned.  "I prayed that even if I don't live or
face a thousand deaths, that the gods have pity on me and grant me justice."  He
closed his eyes for a moment with the moonlight like a halo around him.  He looked
peaceful for a brief moment.
     "I would like to finish it, Grandpa," Galen declared quietly.
     Dalton smiled and gave a stiff nod.  "Go ahead, Galen."
     "I realized, at that point, what Khulari was doing, but I couldn't resist his
commands.  Not for long, anyway.  I guess it was something in my face that did it.
Mom broke down and begged me to get ahold of myself.  She could see the torment I was
going through.  Mom had always been composed and in control.  I had never seen her
like this and I guess it triggered something.  I couldn't resist, but I could
interpret his commands.  Even then, I knew what I had to do, and it was even harder
than what I was already doing.  Loyalty in our family was a very big thing, but I
guess I knew that if mom knew what I was going to do, she wouldn't have tried to
change it."  Galen paused and looked to the ground for a moment, before Gavin and the
others realized he was fighting to retain his iron-clad composure.
     "Then..." he choked out before trying again.  "Then, I grabbed her.  She didn't
even resist.  I raised my eyes to Khulari's own, seeing the triumphant look.  He was
an evil man and I hated him to my very core.  I hated him for using me, for wanting
my uncle dead, and making me do it.  I hated the ffalsesense of hope he'd given me
for weeks, waiting on my father, or maybe the gods, or both.  I hated the confident
smirk on his face, and most of all, I hated him for what I was about to do.  I raised
the blade, aiming the point at my mother's heart, and slowly turned her with my grip
on her arm.  Then, I shoved her back, up against Khulari, and with all my might and
all of the conviction I could muster, I pierced my mother's heart and drove the steel
through her, deep into that evil man, until hilt hit flesh."
     There was silence.  Even the wind seemed to calm, making everything feel...
empty.  Empty like how Galen's heart must feel.  Gavin was shocked, with his mouth
hanging open.  He couldn't imagine such a terrible fate.  The others, too, were
silent, thought they had probably heard the tale before.  One by one, Galen met each
of their eyes, as if weighing their reaction.
     "She died knowing her only son had murdered her."  Galen took a shuddering
breath and placed his hands back on the windowsill, watching the countryside.
     "After that, there was no explaining.  Khulari got what he wanted.  I couldn't
face grandpa.  Mother was his only child and grandma was gone.  He found me, though,
and since then, we have fled.  Family loyalty.  Eventually, we met up with Captain
Acacia and decided it might be best to join his crew.  Being a pirate wasn't my
thing, but if I couldn't be a paladin..."  Galen shrugged heavily.
     "Aye, lad.  You've got the wrong heart for pirating," Thorwild commented.
"That's half the reason why we're here now.  I think you have a lot to prove, not
just to others, but to yourself."
     "And the other half of that reason is losing your ship to the guards, I wager,"
interjected Dax with a chuckle.
     "Oi, don't remind me."
     Gavin slowly got to his feet as the tension eased from the atmosphere and placed
a head on Galen's shoulder.  "I'm sorry, Galen.  You'll prove yourself, you'll see."
Galen turned his head to look into Gavin's eyes and gave a slight smile.  "Thanks."
But it was clear how heavy his burden was, and Dalton, always there, watched

ADX in parry....that's it nothing else

Favs are Broadsword, VL/LO, Fav Learn ATTACK (yeah, right)

Including burnt skills she graduates with a whopping total of 48 skills

And now a little song, I did my best to tone it down enough so MAYBE it won't get
omitted, but let's face facts, the original would have left Howard Stern speechless.

                             AN ODE TO BRICKHOUSE
      (sung to the tune of "She's 16, she's beautiful and she's mine.)

She came on like a sleaze,
And gave me a disease.

Her legs are like knotty pines,
50 fights later, but screw it..........she's mine
    (All mine, all mine)

She's all pimple and sores
Oh what a (CENSORED).

She bought her breast online,
50 fights later, but screw it.........she's mine
     (All mine, all mine)

She's my baby, she's my pet.
I threw up on the night that we met.

She touched my (CENSORED), it almost went pop,
Oooh, when we kissed her breath made me cough.

Well she gave me VD.
It hurts when I pee.

The doctor says I'll be fine.
50 fights later, but screw it..........she's mine
    (All mine, all mine)

Yeah, 50 fights later but screw it.......she's all mine
    (All mine, all mine)

Thank you Thank you very much

Brickhouse has left the building

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  LAPUR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, MID EARTH had to 
be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by WILL DUEL 4 MEAD!  Way to go 
WILL DUEL 4 MEAD!  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but FORCE OF 
NATURE really goofed with their 0-4-0.  BOHICA like really fought hard to move up to 
4th from 11th.  Way to go!  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, FAUX TIDES 
II!  'Cause they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 9th!  MVP award for RAGNAR?  FAUX TIDES 
II's proud of him after beating FIREWALKER and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  FIREWALKER got smashed by RAGNAR, and lost 15 points!  The Duelmaster 
isn't going to stop just cause she's Number One!  ARENAMASTER KYALL knows this.  He 
was Dark Arena Challenged by the Duelmaster.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as 
mourning.  URD gets to be new Duelmaster.  But doesn't this mean people might try to 
kill her, too?  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't 
ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of WILL DUEL 4 MEAD must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind 
of warriors are BOHICA?  WILL DUEL 4 MEAD, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can EQUESTORS' CRESCENS be more popular than 
me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  People were asking me 
did AEREON REALLY challenge WEIPA?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded 
good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but WEIPA wants me to write about 
it since he beat AEREON.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey!  Quit laughing!  Just because QETESH had 6-8-3 was no reason for 
GODS OF WAR to send her to the Dark Arena!  Stop it!  LILLY really fought hard 
against YURI.  That'll teach WILL DUEL 4 MEAD not to go and kill any of ESCAPADE's 
guys again, huh!  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  LAPUR is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Great challenge and execution Crags, you cad! -- Copper Compacter

Congrats to The Brickhouse.  Again! -- Ora and Oremaster

Scion -- Thanks for the encouragement, though I doubt I need it.  You have, however,
hit the mark.  IF you're going to lose, choose who and how and always make sure you
come out better than when you went in.  Wisdom. -- Gavin

All -- Dalton Creed's funeral was an occasion not to mourn the dead, but to honor the
life he had led and the legacy he left behind.  His grandson, Galen, has chosen to
continue the path of a gladiator with friends at his back and sides.  (And if the
story ever gets published, you'll know more!) -- Gavin

Mad Dog Montana and Urd -- I am buying my shields in the same places as everyone
else.  What are the odds on losing two shields to an epee and a fist?  I must have
the worst luck. -- Enyalius

Callisto -- That makes us even.  Care to have a tiebreaker soon? -- Athena

Crags -- I wished you had finished me off.  That would have been an honorable death
compared to the one I'm about to have. -- Qetesh

Sexy Celia -- Sexy and strong, such a dangerous combination.  I felt like paying you
for the abuse you so expertly gave me. -- Amatsurata

Luna -- That was much more enjoyable for me than our first meeting.  I look forward
to future contests between us. -- Andraste

Fhrain -- That was equally satisfying. -- Ghost of Valonos

Aronwe -- Hey, I didn't hear anybody say start.  You're quicker than a blink!  On the
bright side, I averaged about 1 skill a second in that fight. -- Basaido

Sonny Daze -- What can I say besides OUCH!!!?  Thanks for raining on my parade. --

All -- WHY WON'T THEY LET ME FIGHT?  Boohoo. -:[ -- Talym

Brickhouse -- Ha ha, how ironic.  An offensive total parry versus a defensive aimed
blow.  Ha ha. -- Kyra

Sporkis -- Rag'm Dag-Rattit Spork, you killed my scum-hunter, (that'll teach me to
get preachy) and don't think I didn't notice how dispatchingly it met its demise
either. -- Scion...glad yer back

Force of Nature -- The eyes have glazed for Sunny Daze. -- Turtle

Red Bull -- A bull by any other color...wouldn't be a Red Bull.  You're plenty fierce
all right, as I learned cootchy-cootchying your vital organs.  However sad tale to
tell, I don't play, the flamingo guitar very well. -- Hootchy Cootcher

Star Fire -- Just a blind challenge because of your cool name.  Sometimes you can get
the favorable matchup with cool names. -- Lilly

Fhrain -- Two glaring weaknesses...exposed in one fight, too.  And those are supposed
to be amongst my stronger suits. -- Bonzo

Dirmael -- Aaaahhhh.......never mind.  Long live the curse. -- Scion

Firewalker -- Don't worry about my backup, it's just for show... and to make people
write personal ads. -- Galen

All -- Please forgive my rowdy squad...man, Rewrite would have fit in well with
them.... -- Gavin

Anyone interested in Turf Wars?  (These teams or other?)  Count me in. -- Faux Tides

Hootchy Coocher -- That was (panting) a lot of fun, but (blushing hotly) we shouldn't
have done it in *public*! -- Red Bull

Callisto -- Do Io and Europa know what you're up to?  Does *Ganymede* know? --

Atria -- (innocent look)  Gosh, sorry about that!  I thought you were one of those
three-legged little stands for hot pots and pans.... -- Firewalker

Crscens -- Huh, at first I took you for one of those Venusians, don't know why.  But
when I realized you weren't, well, it was too late.  Still, I can always bite you in
an alley. -- Mad Dog

Occy -- I may be the first gladiator on my block with gator-skin boots, hmm? -- Horn

Our congratulations to Brickhouse. -- Jorja and the Cardow Hunters

Gavin -- Thanks for taking up the slack I was forced to leave in the newsletter last
time.  I hope you're up for it this time, also, as I think I'm going to miss again.
Not sure (this is a few days early), but I think so. -- the Scribe

Dax -- You are no longer on my Christmas card list. -- Mad Dog Montana

Glauco -- What are you and Ausonius twins?  Same height, same armor, and results...
oh yeah, and you both teach like crap. -- Sexy Celia

Mossman -- Bet you're glad to see me go.  But at least every time we fight you end up
as the most popular. -- Lord Protector Brickhouse

Guat -- Well maybe those learns will help change around my fortunes. -- Daisy Chains

All -- Sorry for the absence of comments for the past two turns.  First turn, I won't
lie I just was just lazy :)  Second turn something came up in real life and put an
hamper on my time as well as my wallet.  So since my account is in the negative
following this turn, as it stands for now I'm going to be playing on a turn by turn
basis as much as I have the funds for at the current time.  So if I go inactive for a
turn or two now and again you know why. -- Sporkis

Scion -- Sorry about the mishap with Boggy.  Yuri wasn't looking for the kill, hell
that wasn't even the region of the body she was targeting but we all know that black
cloud of a curse that hangs over this arena.  I'll try my best to make her available
for the feud for all four turns, but please don't hold it against me if I fall short
of that.  That is unless you want to pay for those turns then you can knock her
around all you want. :) -- Sporkis

A.A. Shock -- Once, twice, three times it would have been a charm.  It must have been
that thick skull that kept you from dying. -- Urd

Illyria -- Thought I was in a little bit of trouble when you came out swinging.  Good
thing I stood still, otherwise you might have hit me. -- Luna

Boggy --  Ooooo...ahhhh... that wasn't pretty.  You were supposed to bob and weave,
BOB AND WEAVE!  Not just stand there like a lemming staring directly into the sun.  I
didn't need this kind of thing on my conscience this early in my career. -- Yuri

Lightning -- Nicely done.  Didn't think I was that out of shape.  Guess I should
train a bit more. -- Aya

Horn Rock -- I do my best to oblige you, but I'm not living up to my manager's
expectations so I won't make any promises. -- Aya

Jorja -- I guess I could submit Rewrite's write up to Noblish if you think it could
be useful.  But I ask you, who in there right mind would actually take anything I say
seriously? :) -- Sporkis

Aronwe -- I know, I know.  But that's what makes me just so dam loveable don't ya
think? -- Urd

Urat -- Smithy?  I've just been taping them back together after matches.  They upped
the price of a slurpee at the bar. -- Urd

17 July 2008

All -- Many of you know me and many more don't, but I will be scarce for a few
months.  I am relocating, so look for my presence online!  As my will, so mote it
be! -- Abraxis

               a.  No scores will be tabulated until a Gift Certificate is received.

                   by the alliance Captain they will represent.
               c.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  No multiple teams or

               d.  Scoring will NOT be retroactive for teams that do not properly
                   declare or fail to send a Gift Certificate by Turn 1.  In other

                   the Turf War, and you have fought on Turns 1 and 2, your scoring
                   will not begin until Turn 3.  All conditions must be met before

               e.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 5 of
                   the Turf War.
               f.  For purposes of scoring, the moderators will score the Turf War
                   and settle any and all disputes as they arise.  Their decisions
                   will be final.

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:
                Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Challenge        +2     -2     +5       -5
Match Up         +1     -1     +1       -5

Dark Arena*     +10     -5     xx       xx
*After 2nd win, warrior scores no points for wins

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2
Style Master                                     +2
Duelmaster                                       +2

     1.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory.
     2.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
     3.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior in the arena, but
         not the Dark Arena, may be replaced.
     4.  Champions must be in the Adepts bracket or lower on the turn they are
         declared, and may NOT have gone above Adepts level at any time; this
         includes teams transferred into North Fork for the Turf War.

        1.  Bloodfeuds will score points on all four (4) turns.
        2.  There is no limit to which warrior may bloodfeud or how often.

Tournament Considerations:
        1.  Tournament participation is ALLOWED and encouraged.
        2.  Tournament Victors won during the course of the contest will gain a one
            (1) time bonus of 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) wins such status.
        3.  Tournament Champions won during the course of the contest will gain a one
            (1) time bonus of 50 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a

        4.  Points for TVs and TCs will be applied the Turn after RSI posts
            tournament results in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter (i.e., if the
            results post on North Fork turn 275, points will be credited on North
            Fork turn 276 to the applicable teams).

Special Considerations:
        1.  Each alliance begins the Turf War with zero (0) points.
        2.  There will be NO alliance or team changes once the contest has begun.  If
            you begin the Turf War with Alliance A, you must end the Turf War with
            Alliance A.  If you begin the Turf War with Team A, you must end the Turf
            War with Team A.
        3.  There will be a maximum of seven (7) teams allowed per alliance for the
            Turf War.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
            without penalty.

The Turf War is a "winner take all" contest.  All prizes and 100% of the Gift
Certificates will be awarded to the Captain of the winning alliance.  It is the
responsibility of the Captain to distribute Gift Certificates.  Moderators will
submit a list of each manager on the winning alliance to RSI at the completion of the
contest for the non-Certificate prizes.
