Near Barikala:

     The heavy bell-tone sounded again, and this time the wave-front came with a
light that was brighter than sunlight and sharper than needles.  Artemisia felt that
she was being raked over with a curry-comb.  It didn't feel bad, exactly, but if it
had been a little more forceful....  The tentacle holding her did not fare so well:
its flesh was ripped by the comb-teeth of sound and light.  A dark fluid that must
have been its blood splattered on the deck.
     The tilting deck.  There are just so many assaults of sound-light that any
wooden ship could take, and _The Golden Moon_ had taken them.
     Artemisia rolled free of the tentacle that had been pinning her down and looked
around, assessing options.  The tentacles seemed to be out of the fight, at least for
now.  The zombies, too--the bell's attack had shattered their flimsy bodies.  The
ship was coming apart around her.  But what about her crew?  The few men she could
see were dead.  They couldn't all have died but her, could they?  It certainly looked
like that was what had happened.  Maybe it was the Isle spells that had accompanied
her oath to the Greywand that had preserved her.
     Which didn't answer the immediate question:  What to do?  If she stayed with the
ship, no spell of physical toughness would preserve her from the possibility of being
crushed by a falling mast or the like.  And if she dived overboard...was the tentacle
thing killed or just injured?  But gladiators didn't make it to the Isle through
being indecisive.
     She sheathed her cutlass, gathered her limbs under her, and dived, cutting the
water cleanly and stroking away from the ship and toward the dark hump of Barikala
island.  They said that no one ever came back from Barikala these days, but she would
deal with that problem later.  She could feel turbulence in the water below her and
guessed that it might be more tentacles, and whatever it was they sprouted from.
Well, nothing she could do about it right this minute, but she vowed that if she
survived this, she would encourage the eating of giant octopus.  Or squid, as the
case might be.
     Her fingers grazed rock and something grasped her wrist.  She looked up, gasping
for breath and already twisting to reach her cutlass.
     There was a man kneeling on the rock and pulling her upwards.  An ordinary man.
The most beautiful sight she'd seen in hours.  She allowed him to help her onto the
rock, which she saw was part of the shoreline of the island.
     "I'm surprised you survived," the man said.  "And glad, of course, we see so few
new faces here!  My name's Eddystone, by the way--graduated from the arena here and
didn't get off-island fast enough."
     Artemisia gave up trying to wring water out of her hair and clothes.  "I'm a
Lady Protector myself," she admitted.  "What's going on here?  The zombies, the
tentacles, the bell...?"
     "Ah, well, it's a longish story," Eddystone muttered.  He squinted out across
the water.  "But I guess you're the only survivor on my section of the coast, so we
might as well head back to the Hall."
     "And you can tell me this long story on the way," Artemisia suggested firmly.
"Start with the short version, and we can go into detail later."
     "Yes, well...hmm.  I guess it began with the Invasion, or around the same time--
I don't know if they were connected.  But the Duke says that's when the Light-Keepers
started having trouble with--  Er, you HAVE heard of the TRUE Barikala Light, haven't
     Artemisia glanced inland toward the pillar of light that was visible over the
island every night and on cloudy days.  "Even if I hadn't heard of it then, I have
     "Well, the Light-Keepers started having trouble with the, uh, controls on it, I
guess you'd say.  Most of us didn't know a thing about it then, of course, but we've
all--everyone on Barikala--become, uh, well-informed, I guess you could say, since
then.  The Light got loose.  At least to the extent you see now.  Don't even ask what
happened to the Keepers on duty when that happened!  The Light isn't, well, Evil or
anything like that, but when it's loose, it strains things.  The fabric of the
Multiverse and so on.  Like having a lot of little temporary Gates around the place.
Well, the Duke's no fool, you know.  There were procedures.  Close off the island to
local traffic.  The power of the Light can be tapped, and it was used to set up a
Barrier.  Things can get in, but not out.  Because all these little Gates were
leaking...monsters.  Like the one you fought, we've had several of that type.  They
come from a place called, uh, Miskatonia or something like that.  Not always inside
the Barrier, but since the monsters are all drawn to the power of the Light, they all
come in, sooner or later.  And we kill them as fast as we can."  Eddystone grimaced.
"It isn't easy!  We kill monsters, but there are always more coming, and OUR
population is dropping, because since the Barrier went up and people realized that no
one was LEAVING Barikala, we haven't gotten people to replace the ones that die."
     "Sounds like what you need to do is close the Gates," Artemisia said.
     "That's easy to SAY," Eddystone agreed, "and we do when we can, although we're
running out of magicians.  But for every Gate we close, it seems like two more open.
It's the Light that makes all these Gates POSSIBLE, so what we NEED to do is get the
Light back under control.  And that isn't something anyone seems to know how to do."
     "Then we'd better find out," Artemisia said.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

People of Arvat, I bid you all greetings.  I must say it was awfully nice to see
Stylish defend his throne against Lil.  Many odds makers had Lil as the favorite for
that fight.  Stylish proved again what he has proved to me for the past few months.
He is awfully good.  As good as he is, this turn will be his final turn before he
holds out for the tourney.  He will be fighting in the Adepts if all has been planned
correctly.  With any luck he will bring honor and glory to this great arena.

I have no challenges to make with Stylish this turn as all Contenders seem to be
holding themselves out for the tourney.  With any luck he will match against someone
that can teach him something useful.

Until next turn, we bid you all farewell,

the Trainer, for Stylish.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ARVAT.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
NAUTILUS, who pummelled TASSALTER, to pocket 11 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, MORDANT DESERTER was winsome, after beating LITTLE RAINBOW and 
seeing him lose 15 points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
M. CHARDINEE, of ARVAT, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome ARVAT's Number 1.  So 
who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are ARVAT's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the warriors 
of CALL THE PRIEST should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, SARATOGA GLORY scurried away from CALL THE 
PRIEST.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good 
oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, BASKERVOLE is the most challenged warrior.  Do my ears 
deceive me?  PRETTY WILD (outclassed by 27 points) challenged ARGONAUT, in what 
promises to be a fight.(!) Not to smear a reputation, but BLITZKRIEG II must be a 
little surprised, as ARGONAUT blew it when facing PRETTY WILD, 27 points below him.  
My love of complete Spyreports dictates that I note the mismatched fight, TRADEMARK 
and BASKERVOLE.  Are SARATOGA GLORY unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I thought 
TRADEMARK showed great skill and promise when he won victory over BASKERVOLE.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARVAT is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

                             Death Fest Begins July 29/DM 59 T-172

     "You drive a hard bargain Hammer," responded Lord Lian Ki Na-Sul, "but the 
Gladiatorial Commission has agreed to re-open DM 58 Delarq Tor as a Slow Arena 
exclusively for a period of six months to those Death Fest contestants who fight 
their stables at least 67 times out of a possible 75 during the 15 rounds of Death 
Fest; on the condition that at least 20 stables qualify for the Illis Iron Stable 
Award at the conclusion of the Death Fest and those qualifying managers send a New 
Stable to DM 58 Delarq Tor without Cannibalizing their participation in the other 
arenas where they have active stables!"
     Hammer felt a certain sense of satisfaction as he studied the ghoulish grin 
spreading across the face of Lord Lian Ki Na-Sul; proud Arena Master of the once 
dying Illis Arena, as the DM 59 Arena Authority signed the Gladiatorial Commission 
papers authenticating the arrangement agreed upon by the two parties presiding.
     "You and the Gladiatorial Commission also drive a hard bargain," Hammer replied 
as he reflected upon the prospects of Delarq Tor DM 58 being re-opened as a Slow 
Arena with at least 20 New Stables by the Managers who fight their stables at least 
67 times out of a possible 75 during the 15 rounds of Death Fest. "I also notice the 
clause that for Delarq Tor to be open Exclusively for 6 months to the New Stables 
managed by the Illis Iron Stable Award Winners that there must be at least 15 stables 
Active each cycle. That is a fair bargain for the opportunity to battle for the 
Duelmaster Throne each of those six months before Other New Stables are allowed to 
enter Delarq Tor."
     This was a Golden Opportunity for both Veteran and Newbie Managers to pave a new 
frontier of Delarq history by qualifying their Death Fest stables in DM 59 with 67 
fights out of a possible 75; then for the price of running a stable in a Regular 
Arena, continuing to be Active in DM 59 and sending a New Team Roll Up to be a part 
of "History in the Making" when Delarq Tor would re-open for its First Turn as a Slow 
Arena on November 3rd, 2005.
     Death Fest would conclude on T-186 August 25th, 2005 allowing the Illis Iron 
Stable Award Winners enough time to be registered with the Gladiatorial Commission; 
whereupon they would be able to submit a New Team Roll Up to the GC to start a New 
Stable in Delarq Tor; be able to fight those New Gladiators in the Rookies 2005 Fall 
Mailer Tourney; then begin competing for the DM 58 Duelmasters Throne in Delarq Tor 
right out of the gate with the November 3rd 2005 T-1 Debut Opening Round.
     Hammer of the First Part had also negotiated with Lord Na-Zul of the Second Part 
an agreement that All 10 Dark Arena Monsters and 17 NPCs Characters be re-named by 
the Top Ten Death Fest Finishers. [See DM 59 T-171 Newsletter Team Spotlight by 
Hammer for the complete listing of Dark Arena Monsters/NPCs and the Official Death 
Fest Designation for which Top Ten Finishers re-name which characters!]
     Lord Na-Sul could not hide his delight at the prospects of Death being re-
delivered to his once dying arena during the Delarq Death Fest; the DM 59 Arena 
Master agreed that these Death Fest Prizes were but a Small Exchange in Comparison to 
the Profits to be made by the local Illis business merchants and surrounding 
community from the Anticipated Influx into Illis by the Veteran and Newbie 
Managers/Gladiators/Stables seeking to make History in the Delarq Death Fest.
     Nor could Hammer conceal his jubilation regarding the Call Across Alistari being 
Answered to Cross Blades and Match Wits with the Devious, the Diabolical, the 
Dangerous and the Down Challenging who were being drawn to the Delarq Death Fest to 
Fulfill their Delarq Dueling Destiny!
