     "Don't expect any special treatment from me, Mr. Immortal." Magdala quipped.
"This just means I don't have to hold back when I feel like bashing your brains out!"
     "Cute.  What was it Solwyn said after your first fight with him?"  Darius
smirks.  "Oh yeah, 'You couldn't kill a houseplant'."
     The Open Hand gathers as Darius, the recently dubbed Lord Protector, prepares to
board a coach bound to Monuntial where he'll board a ship to Arvat and then west
overland to the Isle of the Eye.
     "You sure you don't want to stick around and give us a few pointers?" Iryana
asks.  "Like, how'd you take down Cairraig Amadan?  I circled him for 13 minutes and
couldn't find a weak spot."
     "Cairraig's tough.  If I didn't bust through that final parry, I would have
collapsed.  Practice by chopping wood, that's what I do." Darius advises.
     "So how's this immortality thing work." Tane wants to know.  "Do you die and
come back or do you just never die or what?  Maybe you should have let that Shewish
Giant test your immortality.  Get the first 'death' out of the way so you don't have
to worry about it.  Just like taking that first hit in the arena."
     Darius is little concerned over the logistics of being brought back to life and
the expectations that might be placed upon a Lord Protector.  At the moment,
excitement overwhelms any apprehension.  "I'm not worried about the details.  I'm on
my way to the Isle!  Chaos gates!  Immortal combat!  The wonders of Alastari!"
     Bahram approaches and puts his arms on Darius's shoulders, "You did good, kid.
Duelmaster.  Lord Protector.  Warrior.  We're proud of you and proud to call you a
member of the Open Hand.  You're a good man.  Follow your heart and you'll be fine.
Remember, death cleanses the soul, without it, it's up to you to keep it clean.
Forever is a long time to hold regrets."
     Magdala hands Darius his short spear, "Don't forget this.  They say you're
naturally adept with it.  But then again, they also say you have an innate ability to
bash."
     Darius gathers the few belongings he cares to take with him, says farewell to
his comrades and boards the carriage.  "I'll be back after setting up the Homeguard
branch of the Open Hand!"  The coach pulls away and Darius, the first Lord Protector
from the Open Hand, can't help but grin as he leaves Lapur for the first time and
starts a journey of a lifetime.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LAPUR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  There were bitter words at OPEN HAND's 
guildhouse after a 2-2-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 7th.  Dark 
Arena anyone?  PUB O'CONNOR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested ANSHIN and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, CAPTAIN KIRK put down CLAYBANK, causing him to lose 16 
points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the 
throne, THE CLEAR has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail ULPHOR, Duelmaster of LAPUR!  Heed this!  A seer has 
warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just 
remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city LAPUR.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  MID EARTH is feared.  This much I can say.  If you didn't 
look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of CLAN CROW last 
week.  Busy avoiding MID EARTH?  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it 
but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after PRIORE.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Akumu -- I was so stunned by the brilliant arcs made by your weapon, I couldn't
formulate any kind of response.  Really was quite a show, but not sure it was worth
the price! -- Bahram.

Grassfire -- Nice match.  I just love a good volley.  Of course I would have
preferred to win, but hey, it's the journey not the destination. -- Magdala

Steel Sharpener -- Not a very convincing "desperate" if you ask me.  Take me for
example.  I know how to do frantically careless!  Dropped my weapon and everything.
You could learn. -- Tane

     An intriguing idea.  Who can be the most desperate?

Carraig Amadan -- Just a bit of trivia-- you can tell we're in the northern
hemisphere because I keep circling to the left.  In the southern hemisphere we'd be
circling to the right. -- Iryana

Metal Mincers -- And I return your salute.  It's with mixed emotions I leave the best
arena in the land. Lapur will always be home. -- Darius

Ulphor -- See that x-1' at the end of my fighting record?  Did that with my flail.
That's right, uh huh, oh yeah, best be fearin' the flail! -- Bahram

Pub O'Connor -- You aren't accepting that lopsided win, are you?  11 fe to my 2?  The
Mugs gave you one, Buddy. -- Lead Lancer (claiming lead discrimination)

Captain Kirk -- Perhaps you Trekkers should have gotten rid of the cyborgs when you
had the chance? -- Platinum Punch

Tane -- I'd be downright embarrassed if I were you. -- Steel Sharpener *laughing
prodigiously*

Murasaki -- Allow me to welcome you to the arena.  Bwahaha! -- Brass Bander

The Clear?  Must be toujrnament time. -- Ora

My Metal Mincers went 3-1.  I'm glad Oremaster is vacationing so I can improve our
record. -- Ora

Visionist -- Oremaster told me to say, "because you are a mean, devious, nasty
fellow."  I wonder what he meant? -- Ora

Sulu -- Ye been a lucky laddie lately with the Commission throwing ye young pups like
me at ye feet ta take o' beatin. -- Spin McDuecan

Lead Lancer -- Dannae nobody tell ye that lead in ye boot only be slowin ye down.
Oremaster must be o' slippin.  Maybe ye should be a listenin ta Ora.  The lasses
always have better taste in fashion. -- Pub O'Connor

Who be lettin all these Convicted Thieves inta the great city o' Lapur?! -- Owsly

We at Clan Crow be liken ta welcome ye new team ta Lapur arena.  Welcome Jessie's
Lovers, Stankonia and Arcane Pharmacy. -- Owsly and the rest o' Clan Crew

Hey Lapur!  I am glad to be back playing again.  Yes, I sent my whole team to the
Dark Arena (evil laughter)... er... I mean will be weeding out some warriors for a
few turns.  Look forward to our matchups. -- Sir Jessie Jest, mgr. of the Joker's
Wild

Ulphor -- It was probably the cold weather.  You were looking for firewood, right? --
Ghost of Hardwood

Mothias -- No, my manager never warns us.  She just shoves us out the door in the
morning and lets us fight whoever we meet. -- Snowflake

Magdala -- You can't put out a fire with your bare hands, woman. -- Grassfire
P.S.  Why weren't you training skills?

Gowron -- I certainly enjoyed that one. -- Claybank

Gul Dukat -- A well-conceived challenge.  After all, ONE of us had to win.  Glad it
was me.  Thanks. -- Windflower

And two Convicted Thieves overpowered, giving us (gasp!) a five-oh turn! --
Wintersong and Snowflake
