Aruak City:

     If Segallion and Nila were under the control of the spell or spellcaster who had
seized her mirror, then they had to be stopped.  Without needless injury--they had
not chosen to do Khaldren's will, after all.  But her own mind, though free from
outside control, was weary and slow.  She was fumbling as badly with her spells as
Segallion was with his sword.  There wasn't going to be TIME for her stop him gently.
A word of Command formed on her lips.
     The warrior staggered into her so that they both fell in a tangle of flailing
limbs.  And his sword struck the blood-faced mirror, splitting the frame and
shattering the glass.
     The glass exploded away from the mirror stand, bloody shards flying outward on a
wave of sound so shrill as to be barely audible.  If Adie, Segallion, and Nila had
not all been on the floor, they might have been badly injured, even killed.  Was it
chance that they were all below the deadly glass?  Adie thought not.  They were each
worshippers of the sun in their different ways, and she suspected the hand of the god
in their survival.
     Rolling away from Segallion, Adie sat up, brushing at her hair and her robe
absently.  When the mirror broke, she had felt a shadow lifting; that was the first
she had known that there was a level to the enemy spell below the obvious.  She
shivered.  She hadn't even suspected that deeper spell, and it could have done...
anything, it had taken her so completely by surprise.  But she would not be surprised
a second time.

On the road from Ardivent:

     "Health, humility, and honor will not solve all problems," Master Cho said
flatly.  He had rejected the idea of hiring a horse and was making surprisingly good
time for an elderly-looking man on foot.  "You know that as well as I do, Fandil!
Sometimes you need cunning, as well, and a willingness to take losses."
     "I know that."  Fandil the Wise sounded testy, and in truth he was very
irritated.  On the most immediate level, by Cho's present attitude and by the ease
with which the Adantri kept up with Fandil's horse.  "But young Adeolar is not a loss
I'm prepared to accept."
     "Of course not, or why would we be rushing toward Aruak City instead of sitting
at home with beer?"  Cho squinted at the forest on their right.  There was a bad
feeling to it today.  Most of the land that lay between the environs of Ardivent and
the beginning of the Aruaki lands was forested.  Despite the hunger for agricultural
land in Andoria, no one had made an attempt to clear this forest and put the land
under the plow.  Nobody offered reasons, it was just "not done."  It didn't take a
master of the subtle arts to figure it out, though.
     The forest was haunted.
     Through a sweep of land twenty miles wide stretching from near Lyratilan to near
Mordant, the forest concealed a scattering of ruins.  Not the Van ruins of northern
Andoria, or not entirely--who could know for sure at this late date?  The ancient
city of Celestinvael was the best known in modern times, but there were other things
hidden by those dark and tangled trees.  Maybe worse things.  Things that might be
wakened by the same spell that was stirring Celestinvael.
     It was not a situation to make an old man sleep soundly at night.
     "I just hope we're in TIME to help Adeolar," Cho muttered.
     "She's strong and skilled," Fandil protested.  "Our fears may be completely
     "So you'll back Adeolar's young strength and skill against Khaldren's ages of
experience and cunning?  I hope you're right, because at our best pace," he glanced
scornfully at Fandil's horse, "and with no problems, it'll take us two more days to
get to Aruak City."


     Shania Silverstar did her best to be patient, but it seemed to be taking Ashon
Chang so LONG to negotiate with the ship captain!  She glanced around at her
companions, wondering if she could have organized her resources better for this
frantic rush back to Alastari.  No, probably not.
     Vurand and Jammies were keeping both eyes on Herlas; the Fratsfan mage hadn't
given them any trouble...yet, but he might.  He would, when he thought he had a
chance to win.  Werre was organizing their luggage and supplies (desperately slim
now) as fast as they were off-loaded from the mules.  Zakar...she didn't know what
Zakar was doing, and she wasn't sure she wanted to.  He was on their side, more or
less, but...today had seemed to be a "less" day.  And Rughal was at her side,
supporting her as weariness ate at her bones.
     Ashon Chang was gesturing them forward to the ship.  Before Shania could gather
her strength to walk, Rughal lifted her and carried her down the dock.  "It is
agreed," Ashon Chang said.  "This man, Kaldinar, will sail us across the Trier to

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, it looks like the Veteran Mercenary's been practicing!  I don't know what
he'd do that for, it isn't like he's ambitious.  Now, the Ambitious Guard could use
practice, but do you see HIM in the gym working out?  As if!
     Naturally, I won.  My secret?  I'm invincible.  One taste of me and everyone

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for IAYE.  MVP award for OUTBACK JACK?  
WRESTLMANIACS' proud of him after beating VISITING ORC and getting 12 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  FREEDA got smashed by C-CUP, and lost 5 points!  Was that 
a tear I saw in THE ROCK's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't DARK 
CHOCOLATE fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said IAYE's Duelmaster was paying 
for drinks at The Wharf Rat?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of PERFECT HARMONY must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what WRESTLMANIACS' been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from PERFECT HARMONY, that's fer sher.  
Can WRESTLMANIACS' ROWDY RODDY be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, 
but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  IAYE is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Outback Jack -- You have to be strong, Jack.  "Outback" does not mean behind the barn
for a corn-shuck cigarette.  (And if you're smoking those, no wonder you're
disoriented!)  And it doesn't mean standing around idly wondering if maybe you ought
to do something, either.  Good gods!  Did you forget what style you are?  I am
totally AMAZED that I jumped you. -- Sonora Sara

When they called that Jaywalker Ruthless, they weren't joking!  I was just standing
there on the curb trying to decide what I wanted for lunch when this BLUR comes along
and SHOVES me out of the way so that I fall into the street in front of a beer wagon
(what a way to go!), and the next thing I know, I'm dead.  Bummer. -- Ghost of Maddog

Coco B. Ware -- Uh, did you mistake me for Dark Chocolate?  *I* am not cocoa!  I'm
more a plain vanilla type, myself, actually. -- Freeda
P.S.  It seems WRONG that a Dwarf should be TALLER than me.

Rowdy Roddy -- My, you are a CHAMPION teacher.  Feel free to teach me five skills
(for which you have to not kill me) any time you want. -- Gissanniah
P.S.  Is it just you wrestlers and us here?  Where did everybody GO?

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!
