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 that 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

     Greetings, Warriors of LAPUR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain in 
LAPUR, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top 
team--TREKKERS.  CLAN CROW after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to consider abandoning the 
sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  What's a move up by 4 
you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to OPEN 
HAND.  Good things come to those who fight well, as TREKKERS can attest, moving up by 
1.  Practice pays for ATTICUS, who pummelled LHISSON, to pocket 20 points.  Win some, 
lose some.  Speaking of which, ATTICUS was winsome, after beating LHISSON and seeing 
him lose 18 points.  Now I can't insult JAILYN, as he has gloriously dueled to the 
top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who's the 
team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR 
stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in LAPUR avoid EQUESTORS.  Like a pup with its tail between its 
legs, METAL MINCERS scurried away from EQUESTORS.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were 
horses, MR. SPOCK could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  MAY of TRAIL OF 
TEARS, possessing a sorry record of 7-8-0, lost hers last battle to BUTTERFLY of 
CARDOW HUNTERS.  Young warriors, take note!  Such is a failure's lot!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  LAPUR, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Warty Toad.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

What?  Salamander, you didn't know that there were special epees to use when slow-
bashing?  Your manager needs to tell you more.  Now I wish we had met!  Har. Har.
Har. -- Inconel Indenter, Metal Mincer

See, Oremaster.  I strategize, we go 2-1.  You strategize, we go opher!  Go cook us
some breakfast.  And mop the floor while you are at it. -- Ora (on a roll)

Nailin' Palin -- Ooooooooh, that felt sooooooooo gooooood!!! -- Inconel Indenter

Gratters ter Position Is Empty.  Ye done maikn' yon damme fine duelmaster. --
Oremaster

     One of the best.

Mr. Spock -- Apparently you misunderstood.  I challenged you. -- Silver Saw (now in
need of serious sharpening)

Snowshadow -- There was nothing lucky about that; after all, I wore snowshoes. --
Stainless Shaker

Killian -- Your tribute to Adara was much appreciated, thank you for not passing it
through your kidneys first. I was a bit anxious about our bout but pleased with the
outcome. -- Bahram

Atticus -- So... poking your opponent in the butt is your special move?  While I
appreciate the thought, I'm... um... just not into that sort of thing. -- Darius

Pinky -- As long as you're considering a new career, perhaps you should consider
teaching!  Much appreciated. -- Magadala

Mossrock -- Drats!  I almost had you!  I can't believe you pulled that off from the
arena floor. -- Tane

Stoneheart -- Sorry for the delayed response, I hope you'll understand considering
I'm dead.  So anyway, to answer your question, I was much happier with the results of
our fight then the following fight, I think you know what I mean.  Someone must have
cursed us during our match. -- Bonaventure

Fire Crystal -- Hey, we gave you your first win, just like Stoneheart!  Oh... well, I
hope you can avoid his fate. -- Iryana.

Oh, gods, do you suppose I could get Large Print turns?  I can't read this today!
Where'd that magnifiying glass go...?

Tane -- Looks like we fought and I won.  Don't ask me about the details, but if I
won, it has to have been a good fight, right? -- Mossrock

Encolpius -- You little guys are hard to see down there, but it looks like you
learned a skill, so you must have survived the fight.  Thanks for whatever it was
that sent me to graduation, probably the political points.  Anyway, thanks. -- Mad
Dog
P.S.  If anybody wants to know what the Commission has to say, ask next time, when I
can hope Jorja will be able to read the report.  It's probably just the glare today--
ten inches of snow, yeah, I know, there's places got more that weren't ready for it,
and the sunlight reflecting off it.  She says she "doesn't want to live in a cave,"
but sometimes I wish she'd get curtains for that big window.  Or get her eyes fixed.
Oh, well.

Lhisson -- Ouch?  Yes, it looks like "ouch" is appropriate. -- Butterfly

Stainless Shaker -- That's a horrible thing to do to anyone, even a Karnhorn.  I
thought non-gendered recruits were supposed to be all golems. -- Snowshadow

Iryana -- Why the shield?  It's just one more thing to haul around and keep track of.
-- Fire Crystal

Somebody could've shaken the toner cartridge and improved the newsletter legibility,
dammit.

Butterfly -- Well fought, that one could have gone either way. -- Rindel

Encolpius -- I have a feeling you got hosed. -- Jailyn

May -- Not! -- Thernys

Vindocomus -- Ouch! -- Gaeglin

Bluiddvl -- <Reminder to self>  Duck! -- Lhisson

Mad Dog, Salamander and Makados -- Congrats on your invites. -- All of the Mid Earth
Guild

Miss Friendly Fire -- That one swing almost did me in. -- Rindel

Whip Me Houston -- <spank>  Who's your daddy now!?! -- Jailyn

Snowdrop -- Wow!  I sometimes surprise myslf. -- Thernys

Julianus -- Thank the gods I am still alive! -- Gaeglin

Butterfly -- Did you have a blonde moment? -- Lhisson

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
