     It was a dark and stormy night.
     This was not uncommon on the shore of the Storm Sea, but it seemed unusually 
ominous tonight.  There seemed to be voices in the storm, and Shau'nin Snowbeard, 
adviser to Lord Kinnishan, did not like what they were saying.  He leaned on the 
parapet of the tower and stared eastward, into the lightning-blasted heart of the 
storm.
     "What do you see?"
     Snowbeard glanced over his shoulder at Kinnishan.  "I am not sure.  Sometimes I 
see... strange ships, unlike any known to me.  Or monstrous creatures.  At other 
times, waves.  Nothing but waves."
     The ruler of Chimlevtal was silent for a while, sharing his contemplation of the 
storm.  "There is a saying on the waterfront," he said finally, "that the storms 
which fall close to the year's quarter-days are different from other storms.  That 
they sometimes stir deeps that are better left alone, or open gates that should 
remain shut."
     "I could believe it of this one," the old councillor said.
     Kinnishan turned to scan across the sleeping city and the harbor.  There were 
lights flickering around the arena on the other side of the harbor, greenish and 
unstable, like echoes of the lightning.  He opened his mouth to draw Snowbeard's 
attention to them.
     Somewhere below, a woman screamed.  City and storm froze briefly to listen to 
the echoes.
     In the sudden silence, a door closed, solid and heavy.
     The rain came down in a sudden wall of water.

     Well, what are you looking at, CHIMLEVTAL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  If The Mourngrym Inn and Tavern is 
buying drinks for WHAMMO & THUDDA 4 U!'s good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry 
before long.  A 4-1-0 makes for a big thirst.  With any luck, I can sneak into The 
Mourngrym Inn and Tavern and join THE CANUCKS' celebration over their good record 
this turn.  5th place, not bad.  If The Mourngrym Inn and Tavern is buying drinks for 
KOSMOS'S MATRIX's good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 3-2-1 
makes for a big thirst.  Oh, this is too good to be true!  SOL INVICTUS has fallen to 
21st place after going 1-3-0 this turn.  Who's bragging now?  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see GENERAL PUBLIC win a fight and gain 33 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, PSYCH MAJOR beat GOT HAMMERED and GOT HAMMERED lost 15 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, BUSTER BUNNY 
has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as GENERAL PUBLIC takes the Title and last week's bar 
tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, 
how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  WHY DID 
I DO IT, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THE STORMGUARDS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, JOPPA was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  Now here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, 
TORNADO challenged up 43 to take on NAPULAK of STORMWATCH.  And The Mourngrym Inn and 
Tavern has banned NAPULAK from service until next turn for losing to TORNADO and 
giving him 29 points in the process!  Ha!  ROMAN KARMA was challenged by one of SOL 
INVICTUS' warriors this turn, with HORAGALLES having a lead of 21 points going into 
the fight.  Ha ha aha ha aha ha!!!  HORAGALLES was was bested by by KOSMOS'S MATRIX's 
warrior!  Thank the gods for big favors!  ha!  I guess I can give a little credit to 
CALLEIGHT of THE NIGHTHAWKS for challenging up by 22 to HELM HAMMERHAND.  CALLEIGHT 
lost to get 56 points of recognition.  And we have FAOLAN AP GRYFFYDD in a challenge, 
going down 15 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought FAOLAN AP GRYFFYDD showed 
great skill and promise when he won victory over AI.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for CHIMLEVTAL's 
morgue.  More variety.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, RYUU 
DRAGONMASTER of STORMWATCH has added the final loss to his 5-4-0.  Tee hee!  Not that 
I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to see VOMITO  and WHAMMO & THUDDA 4 U! 
at The Mourngrym Inn and Tavern tonight celebrating their bloodfeud victory over 
BRILLIANT ORANGE.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in CHIMLEVTAL to get a drink than The Mourngrym 
Inn and Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't 
be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling 
come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Greetings Chimlevtal! --  The Avengers are back after a 10 year (or more) absence!  
First time back out on the sands: 1-4. --  Ouch!   It looks like it'll get worse 
before it gets any better as these puds were made 14 years ago.  The new recruits 
aren't any better either.  I'm glad to see a lot of the original teams: Stormguards, 
Canucks, Nighthawks, Loony Toons, Military Mayhem etc. are still here!  At least when 
I do get a rare win, I'll know it's against the best competition in the land! -- 
Huckle Cat, manager Avengers.

     And a hearty welcome to you, Huckle Cat. -- Temp Ed.

The Icelord -- I salute you, My Brother.  It is indeed time to tip an Octoberfest 
beer or three together.  I prepare to tour the lands again, Warrior. -- High Lord 
Bosk

Raul The Rude -- The CHOIR is (as M.Darque said) a watering hole.  A) it is a hole B) 
the beer is WATERED down so the only thing you'll lose there is your self-respect!  
Salute! -- High Lord Bosk

Firehawk -- You simpletons can dish it out but you can't take it.  Your recruited 
clones talk trash and then run and hide. I am right here, worm.  Challenge away. -- 
RTR

Master Dork -- I doubt if you've heard that one before.  I went to the CHOIR, you 
were the little wench wearing the pink dress that ran out the door as soon as I 
walked in.  I only beat up four before the place emptied.  Don't run next time and 
you'll lose everything, worm. -- RTR

Master Dork -- J. Chirac was a nit-wit I pulled out of the CHOIR and threw into the 
Dark Arena.  He was a VC supporter. -- RTR

The Icelord and High Lord Bosk -- Let's keep beating up these Crying Cartel losers!  
Jimblow and Crimson Zit were forced into exile.  Let's keep knocking the cowards 
down. -- RTR

Cherry 2000 -- I double-challenged you and avoided your team, Numbers Game, yet your 
challenge to me went through.  How do you explain that?  Luck or lots of money on 
your part?  I'm 4-0 against you.  Take a break. -- Napulak

Faolan Ap Gryffydd -- I don't like hypocrites either.  Good job. -- RTR

The Council of Lords is sponsoring "Crysalis Craziness" on turn #150.  ALL warriors 
are being asked to fight with no weapon,armor,helm or shield.  A majority of the 
managers there will participate!  It should be an historic event.  The fans will be 
going wild to the sounds of knuckles, knees and elbows connecting with noses, teeth 
and jaws!  Join in on the fun on turn #150 in Crysalis. -- The Icelord

Buster Bunny -- Congrats on taking the throne. -- The Stormguards

Avengers -- Welcome back to Chimlevtal!  It is great to see your stable in our 
glorious city!  Keep an edge on it as this is the toughest arena on Ghea. -- The 
Icelord, manager of The Stormguards and Overlords

Avengers -- I would like to see a Tornado vs Tornado match!  Many years ago, my 
warrior, Tempus fought Tempus of The Stepsons.  Made for some interesting reading!  
It was hard to figure out who learned what.  Good luck. -- The Icelord

Crimson Zit -- I traveled here for you and now you and your big mouth have fled in 
terror.  No surprise. -- Uyr Demonsbane

Rauol the Rude -- Your arrival, mercenary, reminded me of the ancient Freefighter 
song:
     Death rides all in plate and His tall horse is black
     He leads every charge and His bowstring's never slack

     He stalks every camp, He rides every raid
     His steel harvests warrior and merchant and maid
     Death rides a tall, black horse and we all are sworn to His service
     A Freefighter rides for Blood and Death

The Criers don't know what they've unleashed, Harbinger.  Strong steel. -- The 
Icelord (and a great bow and salute to the late, great Robert Adams) 

RTR -- Of course Jimblow and Crimson Zit are cowards.  They are/were Crying Cartel 
after all. -- The Icelord

Manager Darque -- J. Chirac wasn't mine.  Though it may be eschatological, I'm 
marking the calender. -- The Icelord

The COL presents Chimlevtal History Facts: On turn #74 on 9/14/91: The DM was: Dar of 
Visions.  CH REC LDR: Dar of Visions.  UNCH REC LDR: Kendo Smurf of Night Breed.  POP 
LDR: Anaconda of Bushmasters.  WEEK'S FAV: Viper of Bushmasters.  CURRENT TOP TEAM: 
Team Supreme!!!  #1 TEAM ON THE MOVE: Team Supreme!!!(54).  TOP CH TEAM: The 
Stormguards.  TOP UNCH TEAM: Night Breed.  TOP ST: Dar of Visions.  BA: Viper of 
Bushmasters.  WOS: Here 2 Kill of Dead and Buried.  TP: Helmut Cool Hero of Beat 

These.  PL: Anaconda of Bushmasters.  LU: Falcon of The Canucks.  PR: Alias of Mostly 
Music.  SL: Mr. Cleaver of Briteron By.  There were 29 listed teams.  The most 
popular style was BASHING with 20! -- The Icelord

Uyr Demonsbane -- The fates seem to have determined we are to spend much time 
together!  It seems we are evenly matched, now at 1-1....  I for one am happy to 
leave it there for now and send my challenges elsewhere... how about you?? -- Donna T

Thrall -- I hate it when my blind challenges end up like that... meeting you was NOT 
music to my ears!! -- Phil H

Ragnar Yellowhair -- Clearly you are a more attractive warrior than I... but I'm a 
pretty tough dummy! -- Mann E Quin

Laszlo -- Good challenge... well won...  Luck for the future... Mine is bleak....  0 
trains in 3 attempts with a 16 will has not impressed the boss! -- Greg Arious

Jarl Forkbeard -- Despite that being my challenge, having seen you 'in action' I feel 
lucky to have won that...  Impressive effort, I like your style!  Luck for the 
future, not that I think you need it! -- Anna Bolic

The Icelord -- Tal and well met!  I salute and Hussah you, Brother!!! -- High Lord 
Bosk

Vengeance -- Ah, you're one who takes your arena name seriously, are you?  And yet, 
why should you wish vengeance on me?  What harm have I done to you or yours, eh?  
There's some secret agendea at work here that is hidden from me--naturally, if it's a 
secret, but I hate knowing there are things that are secret from me--and I mean to 
reach the bottom of it!  Er, not by falling down during a fight, though, not THAT 
kind of bottom.  No, I shall ferret out the truth of the matter, and that right 
quickly, because I have some special truth-finding ferrets that are eager to prove 
themselves.  They have noses for news, no, that doesn't sound quite right.  Ah, let's 
say that they're fact-finding ferrets.  Cute little things, as long as you don't 
tease them with hidden facts.  Then they bite.  Yes, that describes them, I think.  
Ah... where was I?  Oh, right, the old "get to the bottom of things" business.  
Right.  You three times hit me in the face (once was in the jaw, but that's PART of 
my face, after all), and were seeking my death.  I can't just turn a blind eye on 
stuff like that.  So the ferrets shall come forth! -- Mendal Omshil the Long-Winded

Taz -- Gods, you're a nasty little thing.  You remind me of a ferret. -- Kolum Marod 
the Short-Winded

Ivak -- You brigand!  You stole that win, and it should have been MINE.  At least, I 
would have liked for it to be mine.  But some days things just don't work out the way 
they should.  (sigh)  Care to join me somewhere quiet for a beer or two? -- Norgen 
Pelh the Non-Holder of Grudges

Salem -- Stop right there and douse that torch, buster!  Don't you go taking ME for a 
witch!  I most emphatically am not a witch.  Well, for one thing, I'm male.  And 
since a little squirt like you was practically nose to you-know with me during that 
fight, you should KNOW.  'Course, you  could be singularly blind, or totally 
uninformed as to the way these things work....  Er, it does say here that you're 
human.  That wasn't REALLY a tail I glimpsed, was it? -- Les Nayle the Suddenly 
Worried

It Felt Good -- Well... it did for ME.  But if that felt good for YOU, I believe you 
may have a little problem. -- Kambard Murh, Without Description

A note for volunteers and those who wouldn't object to casual inclusion in a story -- 
Please let me know if there are people here you aren't speaking to, would attack on 
sight, or are feuding with generally.  Is there someone you wouldn't work with, 
regardless of circumstances?  I don't mean, he offers you a beer and you throw it in 
his face with a sneer.
     Seriously, can you share a short-term goal even though in the long run you're 
deadly enemies?  Test case:  A building is on fire.  Your enemy throws water on the 
flames and tries to get the door open to free Lord Kinnishan, who is trapped inside.  
Do you help, despite your personal hostility (afterward pushing your enemy into the 
flames if you must), or do you walk away? -- the Scribe
P.S.  Those with email can reach me at Livia@reality.com  Otherwise, a diplo to 
Scribe with NO arena number on it will reach me faster than something directed to the 
Middle Way in this arena.

Azereth has returned!  I am the manager for Scarlet Blades in DM 25.  I was a member
of the Crimson Alliance and the Crimson Brotherhood (which was composed of former CA
members).  I've been out of the game for many (at least 5) years.  I would like to
hear from anyone who remembers me, as well as any Alliance that is seeking to add
experienced managers to their roster.  Contact me at:
     Anthony Wells
     600 W. Shore Dr.
     Stanton, MI  48888
or by personal ads in DM 25.
