                              "BANQUET at DAR'VIN KEEP"
        By Johans Johans, Sagamaster of the D.E., Bard to Dark Knight Osiris

     The Dark Knights sat at the table, enjoying the feast.  They all sat together
talking of worldly matters, as they frequently did.  General Toker's magical hold,
Dar'Vin Keep, was the location tonight as it was most nights.  Dar'Vin Keep had a
magical link that connected it to the astral plane.  This link in turn led to
corridors created by Wasby the Great which he called "Boroughs."  These "Boroughs"
connected to Toker's magical sending corridor.  This corridor served to ensure that
the Dark Knights were always able to keep in touch.  Each Dark Knight also carried a
transporting device that would take them to Dar'Vin Keep.
     All the Dark Knights were in attendance, waiting patiently for the song promised
them by the bard Johans Johans.  Composed to commemorate the Declaration of War
against the Vendetta Cartel, tonight would be the first time it was heard by any.
Sitting by the fire with eyes closed, Johans Johans began to sing.

Late was the hour
Dark was the night,
Candles burned low
shadows cast by light,

Knights of the Empire,
with steel in their hearts...
knew the time was at hand, to crush enemies to shards...

Desolate Soldiers,
death in the eyes...
Imperial Forces,
blades unsatisfied

Late was the hour
Dark was the night,
Candles burned low
shadows cast by light,

At the Dark Table,
the decision was reached...
war was proclaimed

Brothers in arms,
with battle at hand...
Spreading their might,
across every land...

Late was the hour
Dark was the night,

Candles burned out...

Shadows overwhelmed the light...

     The Dark Knights applauded the song but knew one thing about it.  The ballad was
not yet finished.  They knew that it was up to them to pen the triumphant conclusion.
Johans Johans smiled knowingly, telling them he would wait to see how the Dark
Knights ended the song, entitled "Imperial Night."

     At The Icelord's comment, Muirona straightened with a slight jerk and nodded.  
Her grip on the little tree tightened, but she began to sing to it again in a steady 
voice.  He nodded back at her.  He could respect people who controlled their fear and 
keep on doing what needed to be done.  The shell-boat began to move away from the 
carcass of the sea monster.
     "Are there many of those things around?" the Prince of Ar asked, turning to 
watch it.  The body seemed to be sinking slowly, but it was also becoming less 
substantial, almost dissolving.
     The Icelord glanced from the dead leviathan to Muirona.  "She may need to 
maintain her spell rather than converse," he said.
     She shook her head slightly, sang another few notes, and relaxed, not much, but 
enough to notice.  "It is a creature from another plane," she murmured.  Her voice 
still moved in the tone and cadence of her spell-song, though the words were now 
common speech.  "A creature of Old Night, we would call it, brought here from dark 
Kordoth by blood magic, for no other kind of spell will reach them.  Nishtar's work, 
I have no doubt, he has enough human blood in him to be able to shape the necessary 
spells."
     "Are you saying," Tempus demanded, "that elves can't do blood magic?"
     "No, we can use that power.  The power of spilled blood is there for anyone who 
knows how to harness it.  But it takes a mind at least partly human to reach 
Kordoth," the elven woman said.  "We have our own dark planes, I think, though I have 
never seen... proof.  But the symmetry of the world must demand it, or so I believe."
     "Is this world symmetrical, then?" The Icelord asked.  "Many are not."
     She shrugged slightly.  "I have not your wide experience to speak of 'many 
worlds'," she said, "and I am no philosopher here.  But such is the opinion of many 
deep thinkers among elves and humans."  She made a slight movement of her head, 
indicating the distant, barely visible shore.  "We are passing Nishtar's realm now.  
His city of Lhufalas lies just there, beyond the haze."
     "Do you believe he would launch an attack on his own doorstep?" The Icelord 
asked.  He had some knowledge of Nishtar from the man's participation in the conquest 
of Monuntial on Ghea, and this situation seemed too obvious for that half-elven 
magician.  Nishtar was cautious and always protected himself; this was too overt to 
fit his profile.  He looked at the distant horizon and wished he knew this world as 
well as he knew his native one, or even Ghea.  What other cities and jostling powers 
lay out there?  Turning back to Muirona, he said, "This may have been Nishtar's work, 
but there is no proof.  Is there anyone capable of such a summoning who would wish to 
set your King Arrengilas to war with Nishtar?"
     Muirona blinked.  "Someone who would dare to use both Arrengilas and Nishtar as 
pawns?  I cannot imagine who would--"  She paused.  By her expression, she had 
thought of someone who might do just that.  "Uthren Dhu!" she said, in a tone of 
loathing, "and the Brothers of Old Night."
     "Ah."  The Icelord smiled, an expression colder than the heart of winter.  As 
she had said the names of his enemies, he had glimpsed them with his mind's eyes.  
Misshapen bodies, souls dark beyond mortal darkness, curtained in swirling chaos.  A 
mental compass swung and steadied.  "I see them," he said.  "I can find them."  He 
swept the horizon with the eyes of his body and pointed.  "That way."

     The underground city of the gnomes--he would not call them goblins--trembled.  
Lamp flames danced and steadied, and then went out.  The city shook again, a groaning 
sound coming out of the darkness and the heart of the mountain.
     High Lord Bosk glanced around Queen Brunild's sitting room.  There were three 
doors that he knew of, and if an enemy was present in the city, any of them might be 
the avenue of an attack.  The lamps had gone out, but his other senses were acute.  
Focused on preparing to defend the room and the queen, it took him a minute to 
realize that the window which opened to the outside air, which had admitted honest 
sunlight before the earthquake struck, was as dark as the rest of the room.  "Magical 
attack!"
     "One we cannot meet," the queen's voice said out of the darkness.  "We must 
leave the city at once--the orders for the evacuation are already in place, and my 
people know what to do--they will know what we face here."
     She paused, and in that silence Bosk could hear a rushing and roaring sound, 
flames out of control in tunnels, and the stony howling of the beast he had fought 
before.  "Fire-trolls?" he asked, using the name Molly had given the monster.
     "If we're lucky," Brunild answered.  "Come, we must reach the surface before 
they bring down all the mountain on our heads."
     "Retreat?  Run away?" Bosk demanded incredulously.  Maybe these people weren't 
gnomes after all.
     "We have no magic to fight the fire-trolls, or the worse creatures who will 
follow them," the queen said.  Her voice moved across the chamber.  A mechanism 
clicked.  "To fight them hand to hand in the halls of chambers of our city is 
suicide.  Our warriors will hold them back long enough for the rest of the people to 
escape, but then they, too, will flee.  The physical structure of the city is not 
worth their lives.  We can rebuild later."
Bosk's mustache bristled with indignation; his sword's blade glowed like molten gold 
with the strength of his desire for battle.  "With me to lead them, fighting the 
trolls won't be suicide," he said.  "It will be a glorious victory!"
     "It would be a disaster," Brunild countered.  "It is only with great difficulty 
and loss that a single fire-troll may be destroyed, and there may be ten of them, and 
creatures even worse!  That the sun has been darkened tells that--only the 
Brotherhood of Old Night could attempt it, and they will stop at nothing, no 
monstrosity or atrocity is beneath them.  I would be unworthy to rule if I spent the 
lives of my people with no prospect of advantage."
     "Many of the younger guards would follow Lord Bosk to battle against the Dark 
Brothers."  That was Molly's voice, she must have come in when the door latch 
clicked.  "We are unwilling to surrender our homes and the works of our hands without 
a struggle."
     "Many will die--"
     "All will die sooner or later!  That is the fate of all who live--"
     "Except the Brotherhood--"
     "Even them, eventually," Molly argued.  "Some of them have been killed in the 
past, you know that and I know it.  Maybe we can kill more of them!"
     "Without magic?"
     There was a silence that seemed long, but probably lasted no more than two 
minutes.
     "There is the Special Project," Molly said quietly.
     "We have never managed to create the final link in that chain."
     "Perhaps Lord Bosk is that link.  Did not the seeress tell us that we would need 
a Hero to awaken it?"
     "Everything she says has a dozen meanings!  Who knows how we are to interpret 
'hero'?"  A sigh.  "You are determined on this.  Very well, I give you leave to do... 
whatever is required.  Gods of earth and water and fire guard you all."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in CHIMLEVTAL since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, BUSHMASTERS.  But how many friends do you have now?  You know what 
they say about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  PLATOON moved up 11 places, 
to 18th.  VINCERE AUT MORI bit the big one as they could not win.  They dropped from 
12th down to 27th!  Are you guy giving lessons or what?  AVENGERS showed CHIMLEVTAL 
what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 3-1-0.  A 
team with purpose!  A team with the skill to back up their boasts!  Getting a 4-1-0 
their first time out is BLUE FROG COMPANY.  What's with DUALIN?  He actually beat 
CHIMLEVTAL's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at ALL NIGHT LONG.  VIP SECTION lost 15 points to ULTHAR THYDRIM.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe VIP SECTION will provide more easy wins...  See how 
the Duelmaster challenged SOL INVICTUS' FALCATA?  That sort of initiative is how he 
got where he is now.  I'm sure CHIMLEVTAL is excited about FALCATA, the new 
Duelmaster from SOL INVICTUS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have... 
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, OVERLORDS!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at NUMBERS GAME ain't 
reelin'!  OVERLORDS' mad!  What do people see in ULTHAR THYDRIM?  His 8-6-1?  THE 
STORMGUARDS ain't talkin', but he's got 63 points.  Taunt your opponent STEPHEN!  
That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 24 points!)  ENDOR 
should have an easy win.  I have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, ENDOR!  
She can't set herself up in a real match.  I was sorry to see STEPHEN lose.  Fighting 
is a better craft than farming, ULTHAR THUUNE, but you have to pay your dues.  Being 
challenged by EDOM, 34 points above you, is dues.  EDOM overcame ULTHAR THUUNE.  
DARQUE FORCES calls this fighting?  In my day...  METALSTORM didn't quite know what 
to make of a challenge it received from CHLOE D'MORTE of BLACKGUARD, who is 19 points 
below it.  CHLOE D'MORTE perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she defeated 
METALSTORM and ended up with 20 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Yeah, yeah, FLASHMAN killed UNGVAR STORMHELM, who 
was "too young to die."  Well, he was a fighter, and that's what you have to face.  
Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
CHIMLEVTAL is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Salem -- Well that was a pretty pathetic challenge on my part, I was so far away from
my favorites it was ridiculous.  Nice job. -- Sywinell

All -- Sywinell leaves for the isle and retirement.  PL, 11-11(+2)-10-17-15-8-15,
Good/Good, 25/14/19/23/12/20, VL/HI, SS.  She was a HORRID learner as you can see,
still don't know defense or riposte and not even an adex attack.  Also, I never could
get her favorites down even though I tried VL/HI early in her career.  Ahh well, she
was over .500 at least. -- Tripwire

Firesoul -- Very nice, I don't think I would like to meet again on your terms. --
Berago

Unhygienix -- Your style on Terrablood's was off big time!  Thus the strange
strategy. -- Ulek

Badger -- Man I tired out fast in that one.  That was odd. -- Wardo Bard

Jorja -- A friend if mine said you offer a lot of advice to new players.  I am
interested in all the help I can get.  I have a character that has a 20 size and 17
wit, but only a 4 will.  What should I do?  Also, I would like to have a team solely
for tournaments.  How should I go about getting one? -- Ralavar, mgr. Team Everlast

All -- I keep hearing about this "Dark Knights" group.  Is anyone here interested in
starting up an "Avengers of Light" union or something?  I think it'll be fun to
compete. -- Ralavar, mgr. Team Everlast

Desolate Knights -- I left this arena fighting The "Council of Lords" as a VC member.
How ironic that I return fighting with "Blackstorm" against the Cartel!  This will be
a long battle for the Cartel.  They are battle tested and old.  We are younger,
smarter and better looking.  That is in itself enough to shake the very foundation of
the Cartel.  Keep your wits sharp and your p-ads full of the eloquence that we are
famous for! -- Dark Knight Goat

C.O.L. -- Salute!  Does our battle continue? -- Dark Knight Goat of the Desolate
Empire

D.K. Toker -- Finally!  Need list of styles.  Go at them like wolfs. -- D.K.   Goat

D.K. Blackstorm -- Sorry it took so long.  And I brought plenty of Goat sack for
Maxi.  Let's get them. -- D.K. Goat

The Icelord -- Thank you. I don't seem to have any at the moment, some are close....
-- Dark Knight Blackstorm

Liam -- You jump around so much it's hard to know what side you're on.  I say the VC
is a poor choice.  They tell me that you're not a member and aren't about to be
either.  Too bad. -- D K Blackstorm

Max -- The only way is your complete and unconditional surrender, which we will
accept whenever you're ready!  (lol) -- Dark Knight Blackstorm

Ten Ton Tessie -- Another win for us.  Didn't think I was capable of that. -- Unholy
Temptress

Maskim Xul -- Grrrrrrrrrr. -- Steel Dragon

Ulthar Stormhelm -- Good sparring!  Thanks for a win; I need some. -- Synystr

Berago -- Pure luck, no way that can happen again...or.... -- Firesoul

Edward Death -- Having the word death in your name could prove hazardous to one's
health. -- Metalstorm

TWIMC -- Just some small stats for Champions of Rune--2 vs. VC and co.--0. -- Dark
Knight Blackstorm

Kat -- We appear to have missed each other this turn.  Bring it all or not at all. --
DK Blackstorm

Doom, A Touch of Evil and Wrath.  The Duelmaster was Kurd the Vivi of The 422 Crew, a
lunger who was 14-3-2.

The Icelord -- So true.  She will never get it though.  Should I sign my name "the
ruffian of rude?"  Naw, let Kats play the dumb word games. -- RTR

High Lord Bosk -- I am ready for a little brawling at the Rusted Cutlass.  You and
The Icelord wrap that quest up.  The ale and the ladies are waiting. -- RTR

Manager Dorque -- Let's arm wrestle down at the Rusted Cutlass.  To make it fair,
Destitute Noble, Sensei Jan and Guardian can help you.  Your eight stick arms against
my right index finger.  I will gave you all a ten second head start too. -- RTR

Getafix -- No one in the crying cartel can flame anyone about "dishonorable tactics."
What a joke. -- Stormwatch

RTR -- Indeed, Warrior.  We must make some waves over a few brews, My Monsterly
Friend. -- High Lord Bosk

The Icelord -- Let's step this adventure into HIGH GEAR!  Hussah Warrior! -- High
Lord Bosk

Dark Knight Toker -- Sure did.  You get mine?  How was that for a come back turn?
It's time to get serious.  The jackals are trying to attack the lions! -- DK
Blackstorm

The Icelord -- Thank you for the info.  Sadly I hove none available. -- Blackstorm
P.S.  The Rusted Cutlass rocks!!!

Max -- It's going to be hard for me just to beat on you when you have so many other
pals worthy of that same. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm

Ten-Ton Tessie -- Surprise!  I know that wasn't what you expected. -- Unholy
Temptress

Maskim Kul -- I see....  Time to change rhythm again. -- Steel Dragon

Ulthar Stormhelm -- Ow, I really thought you had me for a minute.  You definitely
wanted it. -- Synystr

Berago -- Pure luck, my friend.  I forgot to pack my big axe for heavy.  I may visit
again soon. -- Firesoul

Edward Death -- A tad awkward, I see.  You'll get better, and beware of ripostes. --
Metalstorm

All -- Any of those "Avengers of Light" hanging around here?  If so prepare to be
dismantled. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm

Liam -- These things happen.  Nothing malicious to be read into it.  You've my best
regards! -- Kat

RTR -- You're skipping, Dear Lad. -- Kat

Bushmasters & Master Darque -- A hearty congratulations for the invites! -- Kat
(mgr., Club DV8)

Airborn -- I didn't expect you to leap into the air and JUMP on me.  Gods, that was a
shock, you know?  Not to mention that it didn't help my headache at all. -- Mendal
Omshil
P.S.  And what's the deal hollering "jeran amo"?

Stephen -- I wasn't ready for that storm, forgot the storm windows, forgot the backup
battery, heck, forgot to clean out the eave gutters.  What a mess. -- Les Nayle

Svein Forkbeard -- Guess I should be glad you aren't one of the REALLY NASTY
Knifebeards, shouldn't I? -- Norgen Pelh

Omar -- Do you do poetry, too?  And tents?  I'd buy you drinks while you recited
poetry. -- Kolum Marod

Kolum Marod -- POETRY?  What a wimp! -- Mendal Omshil

Streaker -- I was taken aback by the, er, unexpectedly modest view. -- Loden Norvis
P.S.  Next time, wear a raincoat and DON'T OPEN IT.

Liam the Goth -- You're a vampire?  It doesn't show. -- Norgen Pelh
P.S.  And should vampires be classed as "undead"?  How exactly is that term defined?
I've wondered.

Three graduates this time!  Congratulations to all. -- Jorja

D.K. Blackstorm -- This is going to be fun, brother! -- D.K. Toker

Max -- Send your whole team!  Any time a warrior of my style slays an AB, it's worth
four (supposed) losses!  Not to mention, SLAYINVCISFUN! -- Petra-fied Creep-y-!

'X'-Factor -- Good to see you made it.  As a new manager, just kick back and learn as
much as you can from all who believe in the future of this game!  Good luck! -- Dark
Knight Toker

X-Man -- Maybe you want to be a Duelmaster! -- D.K. Toker (giggling as he thinks of
the chicken!)

Maximillian -- Thank you, the COL have spoken badly of my teacher and friend and the
D.E. have spoken badly of my friend Hammer.  What kind of friend would I be if I did
not come to the call of battle, back to back brother till the bitter end, blood for
blood, ash to ash. -- Liam the Goth

Dark Knight Blackstorm -- Lowly or dishonorable?  In the time we have known each
other have I shown any of the two to you or anyone else?  Come now, you will be
dancing with the wolf of the north and not me.  I will stop by time to time to say
hi, and yes no DC from me. -- Liam

Jorja -- Oh so that's how you do it.  Cool tell Nick hey and I'll be in 62 in the
winter months to get a few of me undead ready for the F2F. -- Liam

Gretafix -- Gee thanks, fun but a bit one-sided. -- Obsession

Metalstorm -- Well fought. -- Edward Death

Panda -- What can I say.  Sir Chester made me do it. -- Ash Golem

Woodchuck -- Keep that chin up. -- Sir Brutus

Ulthar the Pious -- Lively one you are.  Good match. -- Chloe d'Morte

V.ocal C.owards -- As promised, I appear.  You've had time to wait, your heart pumps
fear.  It's o.k., I know you'll be making excuses and cowardly challenges soon
enough.  Since I had to do this in other arenas.  I should probably do it here too.
I'm calling out every known VC member.  THIS MEANS YOU:  Maxi-pad, Firefool,
Senseless Jan, Skaird-ey Kat, Street Walker, Missus Darque, Jumbo or Dumbo

(Whatever), WHOEVER ELSE I MISSED, YOU TOO.  I already know the VC motto is "pass the
buck while finding a spot to hide," so I'm calling out all of you.  Come get some of
this, my little ladies. -- Dark Knight Osiris, Blue Frog Company

VC -- Before I forget, some of you know by Wasby the Great (yes, me!), but either way
you'll soon all know me as Daddy.  But until then, you can call me... -- Mr. Osiris

All -- If anyone knows who this Gemini Gold Phoenix character is, let him know to
come fight or go back to "waiting quietly."  Sounds like a typical VC type to me.
And also for the (gasp!) "Avengers of the Light," come to me and I'll gladly "light"
your life up! -- Dark Knight Osiris

All -- Looking back on past newsletters, it seems this won't work, so I'll ask for
help from others.  The D.E. roster includes Blue Frog Company (Osiris), Vincere Aut
Mori, (Toker), Champions of Rune (Blackstorm).  All Dark Knights, all vocal.  Can
anyone help me with the current V.C. roster.  I know they are Vocal Cowards and hide
very well, but I plan on keeping track of exactly how everyone is doing against each
other.

C.O.L. -- My enemies' enemy is my friend.  So if you want, drinks are on me.  (Not
like that you pervert!)
P.S.  Your arena, so do I have to apply for a hunting permit?  I know VC sightings
are rare, so I don't want to steal someone's trophy.

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light

26 August 2006
The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm
