     And I saw when the Shepherd opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the
noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.  And I saw, and behold
a white horse:  and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and
he went forth conquering, and to conquer.  And when he had opened the second seal, I
heard the second beast say, Come  and see.  And there went out another horse that was
red:  and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and
that they should kill one another:  and there was given unto him a great sword.  And
when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I
beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his
hand.  And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, a blight has covered
Ghea. Look deep into the heart and take measure of those before you.  See thou hurt
not the innocent and just.  And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice
of the fourth beast say, Come and see.  And I looked, and behold a pale horse:  and
his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.  And power was given
unto them over the fourth part of the Ghea, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and
with death, and with the beasts of the Ghea.
     And the riders of Apocalypse rode forth.

                                 ON COUNCIL BUSINESS
                                     (part 17)

     Raoul the Rude was huge, a giant of a man.  Much of his size and power came from
his Grandfather, Raoul the Ruthless.  His Grandfather was an Efreeti and a member of
The High Council in the City of Brass.  One did not rise to power on the Elemental
Plane of Fire by being weak.  Originally from Polaris, now on Ghea, Raoul the Rude
had learned much from his Grandfather, who often told his favored Grandson, "The best
defense is a good ambush."  Raoul was many things, but weak was not one of them.
Over 6 1/2 feet tall, Raoul was 285 pounds of solid muscle.  His looks were somewhat
unusual, due to his Efreeti and Dervish lineage.  His skin was slightly red in color
and he had a malevolent look in his black eyes.  His black hair was tied in a
ponytail and his beard was neatly trimmed.  A large scar was across his left cheek.
He wore red dragon-scale armor, red trousers and white shirt in the style of the
corsairs and rust-colored cape.  Black boots of fine quality, a necklace of red
dragon teeth and a circlet of red iron upon his head finished his wear.  He had a
magical broadsword at his hip as well as an over-sized dirk.  The mighty Swordsman
radiated power.  He was now Commanding Officer of the warship SS GOLDEN AXE, which
was tied up at pier 1 in Chimlevtal.  He approached the quarterdeck with his two
Neapolitan Mastiffs, Vlad and Harker, close behind.
     He was met by the 1st Mate, Erik, who asked, "Going ashore Captain?"
     "That I am." replied Raoul.  He then turned to his two giant dogs and commanded
"Stay."  They quickly sat with alert eyes upon their Master.
     "Your standing orders are posted, Captain.  When can we expect your return?"
inquired Erik.
     "I'm not sure." rumbled Raoul, "I'll get word if I need to.  Or one of the crew
will be sure to keep you informed of my whereabouts."
     "Just so." smiled the Norseman. "GOLDEN AXE stands ready to sail."
     "That she does." agreed Raoul. "I've changed plans for the week though.  I will
be meeting with Master Janos and then decide our course of action."
     The bells sounded and the Officer of the Deck barked "Golden Axe!  Departing!"
as Raoul the Rude strode down the gangplank.
     He walked for several blocks and then turned to cut into the most dangerous
alley in Chimlevtal.  He always enjoyed pummeling cowards and back-stabbers.  This
evening though, an unusual figure caught his sight.  Raoul saw someone or something,
cowled in a tattered black robe standing in the shadows.  A swarm of noisy flies
buzzed about its covered head.  Raoul's first thought was to boldly close the twenty
yards to the spy and backhand it into tomorrow.  He gritted his teeth when he
remembered The Icelord telling him to avoid open combat and melee on the streets of
Chimlevtal if other means would do.  He drew his broadsword and uttered the Efreeti
command word.  The sword burst into flames.  The cowled figured shrieked and
retreated into the alley.  Raoul chuckled, extinguished his sword and sheathed it.
He chanted another phrase and a small gate to the Elemental Plane of Shadow opened.
A snarling Shadow Mastiff stepped forward.  Raoul closed the gate and ordered his
faithful Shadowhound "Hunt!"  The pony-sized creature howled and rocketed in pursuit.
     "Sorry about that, Icelord." chuckled Raoul who had his fingers crossed.
     Ten minutes later he arrived in the rough and tumble dive known as "The Rusted
Cutlass."  As he walked in he bellowed "If you don't like me, GET OUT!!"  With that
nearly twenty bravos, braggarts and assorted "tough-guys" fled the bar.
     Raoul sat down next to the legendary Polarian Bard and Historian, Master Janos,
who had a cold ale waiting for him.
     "And what if I had ran out too?" smiled Master Janos.
     "I'd have drank both ales." laughed Raoul.

     And a thunderous voice was heard that shook the very walls of Chimlevtal.
"Be'th thou hath forsaken all for thine own glory, there shall come an awakening.
Look thee to the rise, for a reckoning shall come forth laying waste to all in their
path.  The four horsemen hath been unleashed and with them shall come retribution,
chaos and sorrow.  Fall to thy knees that thee may repent thou's injustices.  Behold
the coming of the Apocalypse, for the riders are now upon thee."
     Upon the hill overlooking Chimlevtal stood a rider astride a white horse.  He
was the first to bring forth a reckoning.  He was Pestilence, and would decimate the
health and morale of those before him to ensure conquest.  With a tight rein on the
powerful white strider Pestilence waved forward those that were to follow him.
     An enormous horse the color of fresh blood crested the hill to ride forth.  The
rider upon the red horse was War.  He carried a wicked greatsword held high in the
air, for he brought wanton slaughter.  His purpose was to destroy, by bloodshed, all
those chosen.
     The next to appear was a horse so black that surrounding light seemed to fail.
This rider held forth a set of golden scales.  He was Famine, and it was he that was
to judge those before him.  Where ever he rode desolation and despair was all that
was left.
     A pale horse so emancipated that it looked unable to carry its rider struggled
up the rise.  The rider leaned forward and stared down, with blazing eyes, upon the
town of Chimlevtal.  This rider was Death, and with the wave of his mighty scythe the
fate of the town was complete, for he brought forth damnation and demise.
     Chaos followed quickly upon a horse of undetermined color.  With each step or
turn, the rider's horse seemed to change color or hue.  He was constant but for the
multitude of armor pieces from countless civilizations.  Raised above his head was a
gruesome mace shaped like a screaming skull.  This mace, when swung, rains forth a
frothing blood that causes confusion and apathy.
     A horse of molted brown carried forth the next rider.  This horse stood with its
head hung low giving of the feeling of utter despair.  Sorrow held the reins loosely
as he laid his double edged longsword across his lap.  One sharpened side brought
forth anguish while the other carried despondency.
     An enormous warhorse clad in scarred and blackened plate stomped impatiently, as
the rider also clad in battle worn plate, drew forth a gruesome double bladed
battleaxe.  Dead merciless eyes stared from beneath a battered great helm as he
prepared to lay waste to Chimlevtal.  This was Retribution, and he dealt punishment
and vengeance. 
     The bringers of the Apocalypse laid heels to their horses.  Like a rogue wave
upon the sea, the riders rushed forward.  As quickly as they past, the grass turned
brown and died.  Death and retribution was to fall upon the city of Chimlevtal for
they had been judged.  Now was the dawning of a new era, for this was the coming of a
time of righteousness.
     Those judged stood before the flashing hooves of the riders of Apocalypse.  Tho'
they be unjust and morally decayed, they had not known fear before.  The condemned,
be thee brave or witless, will find a knee or be destroyed.  For once set forth, the
riders have but one goal and that is total destruction of those damned.  Time is of
no importance for immortals, as time is meaningless. 
     The graves shall overflow with the rotted corpses of the unjust.
     Water shall be like bile in thy mouths.
     Wine will turn to acid and burn thy throats
     Food will not stave off hunger.

     Something was happening in the gray distance.  Bosk wasn't sure what, more than
just the distance blurred it.  A seething fog of what might be dust, or something
like it.  The mass of the army, which he had expected to see on this side of the pass
at any moment, did not appear.  He could glimpse what might be the invading army
milling around, but that was just a guess.
     It was no guess that there were two dozen of the scouts or advance guard on this
side of the choke point and coming toward them.  They were howling like the beasts
they mostly were.  He glanced right and left at the two gladiators and Molly,
flanking his central position on the perimeter.  They were ready.  Outnumbered, but
ready.
     "We'll be overrun, even if the others don't come through," Molly remarked.  She
didn't sound upset about it.
     "Our strength will be as the strength of ten, because our hearts are pure," the
Prince of Ar said.  Bosk sent a sharp glance toward the gladiator.  He knew the man
well enough to realize it was more a joke than otherwise.
     Molly laughed.  It sounded a little shaky, but it was a real laugh.  "You think
so?  I seem to recall a few smudges on mine...."
     Lightning crackled above their heads.  Bosk resisted the impulse to turn and see
what The Icelord was doing.

     The Icelord's lance of bitter cold met with a shield of some kind.  Something
chaotic, but there was no time to analyze it.  He put more pressure behind the spear,
sensing his enemy's effort to strengthen the shield.
     It wasn't working.  That was one of the problems that Chaos mages had:  Chaos
and shielding were antithetical.  The harder this man made his shield, the more holes
there were between the hard spots.

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Perhaps it is DEATH'S DISCIPLES members' 
intannibility that enabled them to move from 22nd to 11th last week...  (Less time in 
the sun...) Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, DJ'S HIT SQUAD blew up 
the rankings to 12!  Rumor has it an incurable disease has swept the stable of LORDS 
OF VALHALLA.  Note their drop in the rankings from 8th to 19th.  Watch out!!!  CHAOS 
posted a nice gain, to come in 8th.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for 
SEPTIMIUS, who pummelled CERIDWEN, to pocket 20 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, SEPTIMIUS was winsome, after beating CERIDWEN and seeing her lose 
16 points.  The arena was more crowded than usual this time, as SVEIN FORKBEARD faced 
CHIMLEVTAL's Duelmaster.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
SVEIN FORKBEARD, of LORDS OF VALHALLA, who despite a 25-22-3 couldn't overcome 
CHIMLEVTAL's Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in CHIMLEVTAL avoid SOL INVICTUS.  The warriors of SOL INVICTUS 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as DJ'S HIT SQUAD apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, BEDLAM could open up a 
fast food joint!  Take heed CHIMLEVTAL, of the unprincipled action of DISCORD.  By 
challenging DIRDEN II, 17 points below her, DISCORD besmirches the noble art of 
dueling.  Warriors of CHIMLEVTAL!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base 
challenge of DISCORD?  As a confidence booster, ULTHAR THE PIOUS challenged DESPAIR, 
down 23 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, ULTHAR THE 
PIOUS?  ULTHAR THE PIOUS beat DESPAIR.  The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.  
Them's the breaks, ULL BLOODSTORM.  Expecting fair challenges from DEATH'S DISCIPLES 
is evidently too much to ask.  BANSHEE defeated ULL BLOODSTORM with a point 
difference of 17.  So this is what CHIMLEVTAL calls a duel.  This will make an 
interesting tale.  OMAR challenged LES NAYLE!  Who says SHERMANS STABLE are just a 
bunch of wimps!  OMAR of SHERMANS STABLE kept his wits as he won victory over LES 
NAYLE.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
ALESIA of WAR spared GUIDO (2-8-0) from having to lose any more fights.  What's your 
next plan, DJ'S HIT SQUAD?  Never one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was 
pleased to see THE STORMGUARDS retaliate against NUMBERS GAME in bloodfeud!  Ask not 
for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of 
writing Spyreports for CHIMLEVTAL?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny 
Vir

coliseum was indeed not bad.  Held council on the Acropolis of Athens and visited
with the kindred spirits of the Knights Hospitaller in Filermos, on the Island of
Rhodes.  The visit was indeed hussah. Ephesus was pretty incredible, too.  Salute,
Great One. -- High Lord Bosk

The Icelord -- Snakes and Arrows is not bad!  I await our reunion this summer.  Well
met, Brother. -- High Lord Bosk

Last turn I challenged both Cinnimon Rolle and Horagalles.  Cinnimon Rolle got a
random matchup with Poseidonis and I got a random matchup with Horaglles.  Were you
two avoiding me? -- Svein Forkbeard, Lords of Vahalla

The Icelord and High Lord Bosk -- While you save Ghea once again I will deal with
matters here!  I might delay GOLDEN AXE's departure. -- RTR

Tour 07?  I WILL be there! -- RTR

Maiden Daquerie -- Good to see you back! -- Stormwatch

High Lord Bosk -- The name change WOULD be appropriate for the sissy! -- RTR

Horsedudes -- I follow the ways of The All-Father and respect the Great Lords of The
Elemental Plane of Fire.  Your mumbo-jumbo?  ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ -- RTR

Destitute N -- I guess we will see if my challenges to you go through this turn! --
RTR

The Riders looked on as  the wicked stood in the street and lamented to the heavens.
"Why have thee brought forth this vengeance upon us."  The foul and the vile wandered
in confusion as their ungodly beliefs and fetid society began to crumble around them.
No longer would the disreputable be able to swagger and bully the innocent and the
humble.  As the Great Lord had commanded, the unrighteous would suffer the wrath of
the Riders.
     Laughter boomed forth from the heavens and an awesome voice crashed down, "Be
proud my riders, for ye have struck a mighty blow.  Continue thy path and lay waste
to the wicked.  Be ye my sword that slays the serpent.  Be ye my strong arm of
justice and punishment.  Walk amongst these mortals and execute my judgment.  Smite
the wicked and be ye the hope and salvation of the innocent."
     And a mighty angel came forth from the heavens.  In one hand, he carried a
mighty sword and in the other a glowing brand.  Swiftly the angel passed from one
guild-house to the next.  Upon the houses of the ungodly, the angel laid the brand.
The mark had been set, the wicked would be smitten, justice would be done.

Dust Mite -- (wincing)  I dunno, maybe you ARE fit to be an orc. -- Les Nayle

The Minstrel -- It wouldn't be so bad if you had a clue about music or poetry. --
Norbel Perde

Stephen -- I see it now, we're shaping up to an oh-fer turn, aren't we?  Jorja's
going to be annoyed.  I hate that.  She's so POINTEDLY annoyed.  Probably comes of
being a basher. -- Norgen Pelh

Eagel -- Wow, a win!  Such a rush, especially since it's the only one for us this
turn.  Let me buy you a drink! -- Kolum Marod
P.S.  But I don't think I'm your secret admirer.

Chaldea -- Ah, you were too darque for me. -- Loden Norvis

Whoa!  What happened to the rest of the personals last month? -- Jorja

Our congratulations to Sniper. -- the Middle Way

The Icelord and High Lord Bosk -- Sorry not to have been able to give the spotlight
more than "a lick and a promise" this time; there were serious time crunches. -- the
Scribe
