          The Caesar Chronicles: Observations from the Pinnacle of Greatness
                    A Day in the Life of a Chimlevtal Legend...

     The nighttime streets and winding alleyways of Chimlevtal are home to many
perils; cutthroats, pickpockets and drunken scoundrels are among the many denizens of
the night.  Venturing through the maze of cobbled streets alone after dark could be
hazardous and even fatal.  Under the backdrop of the mighty Chimlevtal Coliseum, a
proud and fierce Free Blades warrior city-state thrived.  Here, the fighting was
deadly and motivated by vicious, often ancient, rivalries.  The Council Of Lords,
famous historians of this time honored city, and other factions sparred regularly in
the monthly games.  While Chimlevtal had seen better times, rumors of a stimulus
package and bail out by the city council fueled false hopes in the minds of the
everyday citizen.  The grim reality remained, however, that only Chimlevtal's most
loyal guild houses kept her games afloat during these bleak economic times...
     Among those guild houses, the great Roman banner flew proudly in the defiant
Chimlevtal wind.  Long ago, a young Caesar had come to this city, in search of new
adventures and eager to start a new Roman franchise.  Chimlevtal, a place where only
the strong could move forward and plant their spear in the arena sands.  Here Caesar
built his pool hall, a massive facility housing championship games and an annual high
stakes nine ball tourney.  With over 100 beers on tap, legendary comfort food that
included heaping portions of sheppard's pie, bacon mushroom cheddar burgers to die
for and mammoth buffalo wings imported from a poultry company owned by a Caesar
subsidiary on the outskirts of Zuwayza.  The sweet potato french fries came with a
superb honey mustard dipping sauce and the onion rings were battered and fried to
deep perfection.  Here you could order delicious pulled pork sandwiches, giant
barbecued ribs that fell from the bone and brisket that was slow cooked, rubbed with
secret seasoning and aged to perfection.  And if you ordered from the Caesar's Chop
House section of the menu, an a la carte steak dining experience of a lifetime
awaited you.  Caesar's giant cattle farm on the outskirts of Aljafir was famous
throughout Alastari for producing the finest cuts of beef imaginable.  Add a football
sized baked potato loaded with butter, sour cream and bacon and you have one serious
meal.  With a large and well stocked wine cellar, any grape varietal could be had,
including Caesar Estates Merlot from Caesar's famous Arvat winery.  With over one
hundred full sized, regulation pool tables, Caesar's Pool Hall remained an Alastari
legend.  Last year, Claudius of Dullens was placed on the Chimichanga Wall of Fame
after eating 67 of the fried burritos!  A local record!  It remained a loud, bustling
place filled with locals and travelers alike.  Hustlers walked the billiard room
floor with Sneaky Pete cues and wallets laden with gold coin, eagerly seeking
unsuspecting prey.  Scantly clad waitresses made their way from table to table,
serving up beers and curly cued cheese fries, another specialty of the house.  The
clash and collision of balls, the shouts of triumph and screeches of the vanquished
echoed throughout the billiard room floor.  The cigar bar provided the players with
many great rolls and the patrons lit up as coolie servants, located aloft in a hidden
ventilation chamber, labored to power a giant fan that pumped out the smoke and
scents of cooking and left them wafting through the Chimlvetal night where people far
and wide became enticed by the aroma.  The business appeared recession proof as
regardless of the economic realities facing the average citizen, people simply never
forgo food and beer...
     The non-descript rickshaw made its way quietly through the labyrinth of poorly
lit streets and past the rows of foreclosed and abandoned houses.  A team of sweating
coolies pulled the vehicle along, a silent "heave ho" on their breath.  The
passengers were none other than Caesar himself as well as his lieutenants, Trebonius
the Magnificent and Darius the Great.  The men preferred to make a secret visit to
the city, fully aware that assassins lurked everywhere and the dangerous politics of
Chimlevtal could be deadly.  All three carried longswords and wore hauberks of golf
club strength titanium.  The rickshaw stopped before a small back door of the
Caesar's Pool Hall building.  The coolies, relieved of the burden, breathed a sigh of
relief.  Quickly one dropped to all fours to serve as a step for the rickshaw's three
passengers.  The building door opened and the three vanished from the darkness of the
Chimlevtal night.
     Once inside the crowded and bustling nightlife of the pool hall, Caesar and his
henchmen remained cloaked as they made their way down a corridor towards the
championship library room.  A private room that housed the hall's finest table, a
Brunswick Zanzibar!!!  A magnificent table made from a rich mix of international
woods, including Malcorn mappa burl and rails of warm-grained Murskan cherry, blended
with beautifully textured, etched brass panels on ornate aprons and leg pedestals.
On an elaborate rack hanging between the booked lined walls, Caesar's prized Meucci
Original cues rested, eager to be wielded again by his pool god-like hands.
     A giant pitcher of one of Caesar's favorite beers awaited, Ayinger Altbairisch
Dunkel.  The men helped themselves to the perfectly chilled brew as Darius racked a
game of nine ball.
     "Sire, I cannot believe you have decided to abandon our flagship arena, the
might Arvat Colisuem." stated Trebonius the Magnificent.  "The Dark One's heralds
have asked for our immediate return."
     "While Arvat has been a bastion of power for us for many years, El Magnifico,"
began Caesar. "I just cannot see spending our gold on three teams that cannot seem to
get good replacements."
     "The replacements have been consistently terrible." declared Darius.
     "We will leave Arvat for the time being, perhaps forever.  Let's focus on our
teams in Primus and Free Blades," stated Caesar.
     "We will remain here in the mighty city of Chimlevtal, where we have a long and
established history among her fierce warrior guilds."
     "We must boost up our record here in Chimlevatal, sire." stated Darius the
Great.  "We have not been paying enough attention to our operations here..."
     "We will help usher in a new, bloody era of Chimlevtal history!" declared
Caesar.
     The three men smiled and raised their steins.  The hour was late, the beer
supply endless and the billiard table wagers beckoned the three...

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hail warriors of the top ten!  Your Duelmaster bids you greetings!  Old Ull
Helmsplitter went for the glory last turn but was not able to take me down in the
Bloodfued match.  However, he and his comrades in arms still have three more chances
at vengeance. 
     Not much going on here in Chimlevtal or, quite frankly, across Alastari as a
whole...  Good thing the All Hallows Eve tourney is rapidly approaching.  I'm heading
out to represent our great city as well as Cornelius, who has been representing
Chimlevtal proudly in Free Blades with a 39-9-1 record.
     Welcome to The Kindred and The Endless!  Chimlevtal is a great place to be and
we are glad you are here amongst us.  Our horrible win/loss record is testament to
the caliber and quality of the warriors present here.
     My names was derived from the John Norman Gor books.  Marlenus was the mighty
Ubar of Ar.  I always did wish that the forces of Cos were defeated in the latter
books.  I didn't like how Ar's armies were duped into the Vosk delta as treachery
gripped Ar.  I would have preferred Marlenus and the legendary tarn cavalries of Ar
descending from the heavens and attacking the Cos armies as they advanced...  Oh
well.  Good books though.
     May the Roman banner forever fly high atop the Chimlevtal Coliseum!
     Until next time...  Dirden I didn't know, but the rest of you do!  Tempt not my
Blade!

Marlenus
Duelmaster of Chimlevtal
Caesar's Pool Hall (350)

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  CHIMLEVTAL needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, OVERLORDS 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by CAESAR'S POOL HALL!  Way 
to go CAESAR'S POOL HALL!  CAESAR'S POOL HALL like really fought hard to move up to 
2nd from 5th.  Way to go!  MVP award for CRASSUS?  CAESAR'S POOL HALL's proud of him 
after beating ULL HELMSPLITTER and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  ULL HELMSPLITTER got smashed by CRASSUS, and lost 17 points!  Like THE 
STORMBRINGERS' ULL BLOODSTORM is sweating since he got challenged by Duelmaster 
MARLENUS!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  MARLENUS stopped ULL BLOODSTORM 
dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  CHAOS was CHIMLEVTAL's most avoided team.  Is there some award for 
that?  I don't know what CAESAR'S POOL HALL's been doing.  They certainly haven't 
been accepting many fights from CHAOS, that's fer sher.  Like, is LEPIDUS popular, or 
what?  He was challenged the most in all of CHIMLEVTAL!  He's got a 5-1-0, is that 
good?  FLAVIUS II must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He 
challenged DESAAD.  8 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought FLAVIUS II showed great skill and promise when he dispatched DESAAD.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All CHIMLEVTAL ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey!  Quit laughing!  Just because DARKMOOR had 7-9-0 was no 
reason for THE KINDRED to send him to the Dark Arena!  Stop it!  Hey you guys, don't 
you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write 
for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
