     The Archive was an old building, perhaps older than the destruction of Krael.
Gissanniah couldn't remember how many years ago that had been.  A little over four
hundred, she thought.  After her teammate Muttly had adventured in drowned Krael, he
had looked up the history, and he talked about it sometimes.  At tedious length,
sometimes, though now that she was probably going there herself, she wished she'd
paid more attention.
     It was almost as cold inside as outside, though neither wet nor windy.  Probably
the place wasn't heated.  It wasn't lighted well, either.  There were chandeliers and
brackets for lamps, but what light the interior received came from skylights, and on
this dark and stormy day, there wasn't much light in the sky.  Enough, though, to see
that the place was clean.  It would have been easy for the staff to leave it full of
dust and cobwebs.  How many people came here, after all?
     Gissanniah and Senator Sedalia were following one of the archivists (there were
three) along a hall on the upper floor, to the room he said contained 'records from
and about Krael'.  She leaned close to the senator and whispered, "What do we expect
to learn here?"
     Sedalia patted her hand.  "The physical layout of the old city, for a start," he
said.  "Then...I would like to see where, in a physical sense, power was
concentrated.  Where the wizards had their towers.  That may lead us to the points
that are important to Khaldren.  Destroy them, and we can perhaps hope to destroy
HIM, you see."
     She nodded, but she didn't see.  Oh, she saw a grand outline, but not how any of
it could be accomplished.  Was there going to be a map with a lot of stars on it
labeled "here there be wizards"?  Well, maybe there would be.  What did she know?
This was why the senator was in charge, and not her.
     They turned a corner, and the archivist cried out in horror.  A door farther
down was open, and the sound of tearing and smashing came from it.  With a cry of
"No, NO, the BOOKS!" the archivist rushed ahead.
     The two gladiators rushed after him.  Gissanniah drew her sword.  Senator
Sedalia picked up the bucket catching drips under one of the skylights in the hall;
it was nearly full.
     The room was long and high-ceilinged, lined with shelves and cabinets, and a
table stood in the center.  Alvin Moss, the Trustworthy Scribe from Iaye arena, was
pulling books and scrolls off one of the shelves and dumping them carelessly onto the
table.  And he had a jug of lamp oil and a fire-striking set all laid out neatly.
The Trustworthy Arsonist?
     Gissanniah lunged for him, but the man snatched up a wooden chair to use as a
shield, parrying her blow and then knocking her sprawling as he swung his furniture.
She rolled and came back to her feet, glancing around quickly to locate the other two
people in the room, and the furnishings that might trip her.  Something didn't fit
the pattern.  She knew immediately that Moss was playing some trick on them, that his
carefully arranged arson kit was just...stage setting.
     Where was the real show, then?  She looked around carefully.  The room was dim,
not much light coming from the rain-curtained windows.  No skylight, of course, it
was almost impossible to stop skylights from leaking, and you couldn't have them
leaking on books.  But at the far end, from behind one of the out-reaching sets of
shelves, there was another light, reddish and unsteady.  Fire!
     She dropped her sword and snatched the water bucket from the senator.  It was
heavy, but she scarcely noticed.  Behind her Sedalia and Moss were shouting.  She
didn't listen.  Around the corner, bucket raised to throw out the water.  The scene
that met her eyes was enough to make her pause.
     The Ruthless Jaywalker stood poised, a torch in one hand and a bloody dagger in
the other.  Sprawled in a pool of copper-colored blood on the floor was Something
that had been approximately human in shape before the Jaywalker's butchery; a cloud
of something dark was taking shape above the steaming entrails.
     Gissanniah hurled water and bucket together and reached for her sword.  Which
was not at her belt.  She remembered dropping it back near the center of the room,
but no time to go get it now.  She drew her dagger and faced the Ruthless Jaywalker.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of IAYE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  ROWDY RODDY caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested WROTE THE BOOK and was awarded 18 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, PASTOR PENTANE put 
down RISHTEKE, causing him to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  Who here 
was not present for the title fight this week as STONE COLD boldly challenged 
STEINBACH in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  Not for nothing has 
STEINBACH in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women 
in IAYE seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  IAYE, city of gladiators!  Mighty 
among the names of thy guilds is LENPROS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of WRESTLMANIACS last week.  Busy avoiding LENPROS?  Loose talk at the arena 
has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
OUTBACK JACK.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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

Old Doc Circ?  Now that is a name from the past.  It will be good to hear from him
again.  We look forward to your DM column. -- Lenpro

Rishteke -- Dr Rosenzweig may never tell you this, but I thought you fought well and
deserve the title.  Salute. -- Lenpro

Pshaw!  Rishteke, lucky!  Who'd you pay? -- Dr Rosenzweig

Enchanted -- That was some enchanted evening.  Amen. -- Pastor Pentane

Bigfoots -- You surprised me, Sir.  Very well fought. -- Lady Huntsman

Lady Huntsman -- All the ladies follow me, because of the old saying about big feet
meaning big other parts.  Uh, hands?  Anyway, lots of ladies around, but I do like an
orc.  So, um, well developed.  (ogles shamelessly)  And you ARE, too. -- Bigfoots

Walt Weiss -- Ah, GOOD.  A winning record for me again, at least for the moment, and
what else IS there except this moment?  Everything else is rumors and lies. --

Windy Wind -- And you did the blowy blow thing very...effithiently, too.  Not that
I'm thrilled, mind you, but credit where it'th due:  you are a hard blower. --

A Shifty-eyed Volunteer came and SAT on me!  Like he thought he as an OWL or
something.  Stupid bird. -- Fence Post
P.S.  He got splinters in his feet.  Ha!

This Shiftyeyed Volunteer wanted to tell me about his...ah, his gall bladder or
something.  What do I know about them?  I'm a vet.  But I finally agreed to remove
it.  With a sword. -- Dr Trinaire
P.S.  And if he didn't know his gall bladder was in his leg, well, that's why he
wanted a doctor, right?

22 February 2006
The Olympics have arrived!

The Mordanti Olympics, having been gone for six years, have returned to the Mordanti
Alliance, sponsored by Amicitia Primoris.  Teams have competed against each other for
recognition and notoriety four times in the past.  It is far past time for the fifth
Mordanti Olympics to be held.  The Mordanti Olympics shall be held in the Mordant
arena (DM-1) from May 1st (T544) through Oct 30 (T557).  There will be a
'registration period' lasting until T543, where teams will be allowed to register by
activating in Mordant and declaring their participation in the personals.  Rules will
be posted in the Mordant arena (DM-1) newsletter no later than T543, but shall be
available online before then.  An announcement will be made as to where they will be
posted.  Prizes will be awarded to the winners.
