The Urt Delta north of Chimlevtal:

     The Obsidian Golem studied the tower as it waded across the pool.  The water was 
shallow, the bottom firm, so it didn't need to focus much attention on the mechanics 
of approach.  And it suspected that the tower was only incidental to its basic 
purpose.  At the least, the Cult Member it had followed this far had gone on past 
with only a slight hesitation.  The Golem could perceive, by a sense which it knew 
had no precise human analog, that the tower contained a quiescent Gate.  This could 
be a thing of interest to its creator, and it observed closely.  But the Gate here 
was not its task, and it moved on past in the wake of the Cult Member.
     Truly, humans were a mystery.  It knew with certainty that it could defeat and 
kill the Cultist, or defeat and capture him, returning him to Arvat for questioning.  
Why follow?  It seemed inefficient.
     No doubt there was more to this than had been revealed.  Which was so often the 
case.  Did people fear that a golem would be incapable of understanding or that it 
would babble whatever it had been told?  After a moment, the Obsidian Golem shook its 
smooth dark head.  Or did they fear that it WOULD understand, and disagree?

Possibly near Carestos:

     Lord Bosk stared for a few seconds, mouth open with a combination of shock and 
outrage, then lunged after the goblin woman and grabbed her shoulder.  "Oh, no, you 
don't get off that easy!  You got me INTO these tunnels, wench, and you can damned 
well get me out of them!"
     She turned to face him, shaking off his hand, and her scowl was as formidable as 
his own.  "Why?  Can't you follow a simple direction?  That tunnel will take you to 
the surface.  And since you don't want to associate with me, and I don't want to 
associate with you...."  She shrugged.  "Splitting up makes sense to me."
     Bosk glared at her, words jostling in his mouth.  Finally he said, "We'd better 
stick together."
     "I'm not going to the surface," she snapped.  "I've got other rabbits to catch!"
     "Yeah?  Well, I've got some questions I want answered before I walk away from 
this whole mess," the gnome answered.  "And who else is there down here who might 
have an answer?"
     After a moment, she said, "I won't promise you answers, but ask."
     "Okay."  He sorted through what information he had.  "Okay, here's the first 
one.  Even that witch-doctor back there said the gnomes can't win this on their own.  
Why'd you start this war, then?"
     "We didn't.  Gorsh attacked one of our mining outposts."  Her angry scowl faded 
to a simple frown.  "We didn't understand it then, and we don't now.  They killed a 
lot of our miners and destroyed a lot of equipment, but they didn't send a force big 
enough to capture the place and hold it, and they must have known that.  But we 
couldn't ignore what they'd done, either, and they knew THAT, too.  A lot of people 
said it was just typical of gnomish stupidity."  She made a bothered gesture, as 
though waving away a fly.  "That's just bias."
     "You're saying GNOMES were the ones who started this war they can't win?"  Bosk 
put his hands on his hips to reinforce his glare.  "THAT is bias--"
     "No, I've seen the reports.  I think...."  She paused, then shrugged.  "I think, 
and our queen thinks, that they've been maneuvered into this.  That they're pawns, 
and, probably, that we are, too."
     Bosk narrowed his eyes and considered that.  "Somebody wants you distracted, not 
able to get involved in some other matter?  Well... maybe.  I don't know your local 
politics.  What kind of thing would you be doing if you weren't about to go to war 
with the gnomes?"
     She shrugged again.  "We don't KNOW.  When I left the palace, whatever else 
hadn't happened yet.  And even when we know that the gnomish attacks are a 
distraction, we can't ignore them."
     Bosk nodded.  "Okay.  I might know some things that will help make sense of 
this.  Or maybe have some ideas.  Take me to your leader."

Carestos:

     The Icelord raised an eyebrow.  "Your presence is not unwelcome," he said to the 
two gladiators.  "But it is a surprise.  How did it happen?  I see no monster to 
snatch you through a Gate."
     Lord Protector Tempus shrugged, tight-lipped.  "There were monsters around," he 
said.  "Chimlevtal was practically under siege."
     "The people are taking our arrival calmly, aren't they?" the Prince of Ar noted.
     The Icelord glanced around.  People had moved away from them and were keeping an 
open space around the three foreigners, maybe ten or fifteen feet across.  But beyond 
that perimeter, they went on about their business.  No one stared, and as far as The 
Icelord could tell, no one set up any spells against them, either defensive or 
offensive.  "Intriguing," he murmured.  "I wonder why...?"
     "They aren't aware of you at all," a female voice said.
     The three men turned.  An elf, or part-elf, The Icelord decided.  Wealthy, if 
you could judge by her clothing:  a lot of silk, of gold jewelry, of what he 
suspected was extremely artful tailoring.
     "A simple illusion," she said, gesturing.  "A specialty of mine.  It wouldn't do 
for just anyone to realize you are here, or just what, exactly, you are."
     "Did Shau'nin set you to keep track of me?" The Icelord demanded.
     Her perfectly shaped eyebrows rose.  "So the old man knows that something is 
going on, does he?  Well, I'm not surprised.  Very little slips past him.  But," she 
smiled with satisfaction, "*I* have slipped past his notice.  No, Shau'nin Snowbeard 
did not send me here or set me this task."  She sighed.  "Although we'll probably 
turn out to be allies.  It's a case of 'an enemy of my enemy is my friend'."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt CHIMLEVTAL will ever be the same.  I want to know who's buying the drinks for 
who tonight at The Mourngrym Inn and Tavern, seeing as DARQUE FORCES' 175-160-10 has 
earned them 9th place in the ranks.  The AVENGERS guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, ENDOR fought ZARENDARGAR and gained 23 points and contributed 
to DARQUE FORCES' 4-1-0.  BARTOFELES has lost to MANI, falling 18 points, while 
helping make THE STORMGUARDS a 3-2-0 turn.  We should ask RAUNI about the thrill of 
victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, she's now the one to 
ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Mourngrym Inn and Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  NUMBERS GAME has cause to stand tall, as they were 
CHIMLEVTAL's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
guess who avoided NUMBERS GAME stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was THE 
STORMBRINGERS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was JUST 
DESSERTS' warrior FANTASTIC FLAN.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  EDOM, does your manager know you're challenging down 16 
points to fight ULTHAR JARVA from OVERLORDS?  I thought challenges were for warriors, 
not cowards looking for easy wins.  EDOM beat ULTHAR JARVA, is nothing sacred?  In a 
brave attempt, MYTHIC MACAROON from JUST DESSERTS challenged up 24 points to fight 
GERI from the LORDS OF VALHALLA stable.  MYTHIC MACAROON perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he was bested by GERI and ended up with 7 recognition points.  
ULTHAR XZORSH of THE STORMGUARDS had better have a good reason for challenging down 
13 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought ULTHAR XZORSH showed great skill 
and promise when he beat SADISTIC SMORE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Kudos go out to SYNYSTR this turn, for revenging CHAMPIONS OF RUNE's 
bloodfeud against ALL NIGHT LONG's warrior VIP SECTION.  Well done.  Is it really 
true that CHIMLEVTAL has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd 
ask...   
     I like this place, CHIMLEVTAL, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet 
again, keep your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and 
my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

All -- I originally came to this arena with the idea of experimenting.  However,
after better experimental warriors in other arenas, I have decided to try and be
competitive over here.  With Hostilius as my only solid warrior and Petrified Creep,
an unconventional PR design that I want to see in certain situations, I am DAing
three warriors this turn and will keep DAing until I get the designs I'm looking for.
Just so everyone knows, I will be here on a more regular basis. -- Toker, Desolate
Empire Alliance, mgr. Vincere Aut Mori (564)

Blackstorm -- It's good to see another familiar face here in Chimlevtal.  Good luck
here as well as in 47! -- Toker, (V.A.M.)

Blackstorm -- Good to see you in Chimlevtal.  Keep your blade sharp and enjoy. -- RTR

Destitute N. -- On turn #257 The COL went 3-0 against you.  Not 4-1.  Veggie Pack is
not a member of The COL.  (Pulverizer is a good friend and respected participant in
Chimlevtal but has never announced nor asked to join The Council of Lords.)  On turn
#258 The COL went 7-0 against you.  Just remember, your the one who wanted to bring
the challenge out of Arvat and rush two more teams here to Chimlevtal.  The challenge
was supposed to be between you and The Icelord in Arvat.  You brought conflict with
us here.  Use your avoids. -- RTR
P.S.  Yes I do think you are a sissy and a hypocrite but let's not get into that.
Let us go to the gym and if you can out-lift me or beat me in arm wrestling, I will
call you sissy no more.

The Icelord -- Nice 9-1-1 turn!  Good to see The COL go 7-0 vs. D.N and 3-0 against
the Crying Cartel.  Keep leading the way, warrior! -- RTR

Terrible Two -- Be silent, fool. -- Lord Protector Napulak

Lord Protector Helm Hammerhand -- Congrats!  I salute you and High Lord Bosk! -- RTR

Lord Protector Zarendargar -- Congrats!  I salute you and The Icelord! -- RTR

4-Letter Fruit Bats, The Animals, Extreme Creeps, Stormlord Bastards, Necronomicon,
Blitzkrieg & Vincere Aut Mori -- Good to see you in Chimlevtal.  Have your manager
introduce himself and enjoy the scrum. -- RTR

Casual Observer -- You suck. -- RTR

High Lord Bosk -- Tal and well met mighty one!  The October Polaris Tour went rather
well.  The hit list:  58 Gnolls, 21 Trolls, 7 Giant 2-Headed Trolls, 4 Giant Hyenas,
4 Hyenas, 5 Type IV Demons and 1 Ancient Red Dragon named "Land's Blight." The Death
Knight, General Blackheart, was defeated, but managed to escape.  The Barbarian and I
wished you could have made it.  We raised our ale in your honor! -- The Icelord

High Lord Bosk -- Well met, my brother!  It was great AND grand to get out to your
castle and spend 5 glorious days in the sun.  Your hospitality is second to none.  I
really enjoyed seeing Jethro Tull bud, most hussah.  The November Polaris Tour was an
epic for sure.  The hit list:  50 Giant Rats, 12 Huge Spiders, 4 Giant Scorpions, 20
Giant Wasps, 4 Giant Lizards, 20 Troglodytes, 1 Troglodyte Chief, 1 Efreeti and of
course, your blade decimated and defeated the Dragonlord Avatar!  Polaris is safe
once again, thanks to the might of your blade!  Salute! -- The Icelord

RTR -- Of course Casual Observer is a weakling.  Your biceps are probably bigger than
his chest, warrior. -- The Icelord

Blackstorm -- Enjoy Chimlevtal and write a team spotlight about the history of your
team if you will. -- The Icelord

Terrible Two -- Your shoes are untied. -- Bartofeles (my regards to Love Potion #9)

Destitute Noble -- Actually you did not go 1-4 against us.  Veggie Pack is not in The
Council of Lords.  I think you are something like 1-9 against us the past 2 turns.
I'm sure the Crying Cartel can offer you some advice.  They are 29-41 against us this
year. -- The Icelord/The Council of Lords

The Icelord -- It was MOST great and grand having you and the Royal children at the
castle this past week!  Tull was superb and the realm was more than a challenge.  The
fallen Avatar was MOST imposing!  Tal! -- High Lord Bosk

Chimlevtal -- Feast well and safe holidays! -- The Council of Lords
