The Caesar Chronicles:  Observations from the Pinnacle of Greatness

A Day in the Life of an Arvat Legend

     The coolie raced frantically through the mud and reeds.  He was fleeing for his
life, his clothes torn and soiled, his coolie hat ripped to shreds but still fastened
tightly around his chin.  Behind him, the ominous sound of branches snapping and the
displacement of water could be heard.  The giant crocodile, some thirty feet in
length, was easily closing the gap between its massive jaws and the prey.  The coolie
leaped high to clear a fallen tree trunk, but his hunter was swifter.  In one fell
swoop, the coolie was snatched from mid air and within the viselike jaws.  A horrid
scream echoed throughout the swamplands as the coolie was completely enveloped.  As
swiftly as it had obtained its prey, the crocodile vanished within the thickets.  The
coolie's tattered hat was all that remained, swaying back and forth from a tree limb
where it had landed and become entangled.
     Meanwhile, a short distance away and unknowning of the irrelevant travesty that
had just unfolded, Caesar and his lieutenants had arrived within a massive clearing
in the marsh.  Thousands of coolies, who had made the arduous journey through the
hinterlands from Zukal, toiled in the sweltering Arvat sun.  The air was thick with
mosquitoes and humidity.  Large volumes of water were being systematically displaced
to drain the area, further adding to the moisture in the air and creating a foul
stench.  The swamp was being drained of all water, coolies could be seen everywhere,
digging and channeling water into the lower elevations nearby.  A steady stream of
coolies made their way forward in an endless procession, their backs bowed low under
the weight of the mud.  Thousands of pounds of earth was being relocated and shifted.
Snakes slithered about and the coolies eyed the dense growth nearby with caution.
The crocodiles stared back through the reeds and eyed their prey carefully.  One
careless move was all it took.
     Caesar, flanked by servants bearing large fans, surveyed the excavation project.
His lieutenants stood nearby, smoking large Partagas to mask the foul stench of the
marshland.
     "Yes, Darius, this will be hole #1 on this course.  A par 5 with a dogleg
right," stated Caesar confidently.  "This will be the finest country club in all of
Alastari."
     "Correct as always, sire," replied Darius.  "And with that extra buffer zone
between here and the marsh border, there should be no issue with the bugs or stench."
     "And those nitwit environmentalists back in Arvat stated that we would cause an
ecological disaster by burning and draining the area," mused Trebonius the
Magnificent.  "What's the loss of a few thousand acres of useless swampland going to
cause?  Perhaps this will reduce the fact that Arvat has been sinking slowly year
after year."
     "Once we spray this area down with ungodly amounts of chemicals, fertilizers and
insect killer, there won't be anything left to disturb our game within miles of
here," chuckled Darius.  "Big business wins again!  Long live Caesar & Co!  No one
will ever know that we misappropriated funds, bribed politicians and intimidated the
opposition party.  Isn't that standard business practice anyway?"
     "Look at these wretched coolies," laughed Trebonius, a puff of smoke billowing
from his cigar.  "Who would have ever thought that we could get so many workers for
so little money?  What a good deal."
     "Unfortunately, they will not spend the money here, but rather back in the dung
heap of Zukal," stated Caesar.  "Coolie capital of the world.  Back in the days of
Spartacus, I was often stuck for hours each morning in rickshaw traffic on her
crooked streets.  I don't miss that place."
     "Let us depart, sire."  Darius motioned towards the massive palanquin nearby.
"Remember, we are scheduled to meet that Mad Max ally of ours for Mai Tais and hot
dogs."
     With that the three men departed the area.  Behind them, the Arvat sun began its
steady descent from the heavens.  The coolies labored onward, until the last rays of
light permitted.  Building a championship golf course was no easy task....

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Wow.  I'm the Duelmaster.

DOOOOOL-Master!  DUE - EL Master!  Dooolie doolie duelmaster.

Sweeeeeet.

I kinda hoped that by challenging my alliance buddy Roland we might get the title
fight between us and seeing as how I have the style edge on him that I MIGHT pull if
off...but I really didn't expect it.  Not at all.  This is so cool!

I suppose I'm not really quite what one might expect with the name Rage, but it's
actually all based on my try-out for the team.  About a year ago I signed up for open
enrollments as a gladiator on the Angels of Pain team.  While I was in then ready
room, I noticed what I thought was a dead wasp's nest in the corner of the room.  I
thought it was pretty cool, so I decided to take a look at it.  Well, as you might
expect, it wasn't a dead wasp's nest and the little buggers came swarming out.  I
started screaming and swearing and began slamming on the doors in fury as about 500
wasps sized me up.  Just that moment they opened the door and I tore out onto the
sands, trampling the guy they had out there for me to practice against.

I guess that's what they were looking for, because they hired me on the spot.  And
assigned me the name 'Rage.'  Fortunately, I took to fighting and ended up making a
solid show of it.

Of course now that I'm Duelmaster, I guess I have to figure out what to do next....

Rage

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ARVAT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for NOTORIOUS, whose 0-3-0 this turn dropped 
them by 5 into 12th.  SARATOGA GLORY stable has parlayed this turn's 4-0-1 into a 6 
space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  The 
ANGELS OF PAIN guild has had a 4-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  
You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, BURLY REIVER fought 
DEMETREN and gained 21 points and contributed to GEMSTONE BEASTS' 1-0-0.  DEMETREN 
has lost to BURLY REIVER, falling 16 points, while helping make RILL'S GCSC2 a 3-2-0 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and RAGE remains ARVAT's 
top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the NOTORIOUS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ARVAT, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding NOTORIOUS more than any other team we find DEVIL ADVOCATES.  ARVAT, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that ROLAND from RILL'S GCSC2 was ARVAT's most challenged warrior this turn.  
Building dreams on hope, FOR THE GODLINGS! challenged up 29 points this turn to take 
on ROLAND from RILL'S GCSC2 stable.  Well, FOR THE GODLINGS! was bested by ROLAND, 
but FOR THE GODLINGS! gained 5 in recognition for its efforts.  Thank goodness for 
small favors.  CANNIBALISTIC COW from BARN OF HORRORS took a risk this turn by 
bravely challenging up 26 points in a challenge against SHAI ALYT.  And though 
CANNIBALISTIC COW lost to SHAI ALYT, the valiant attempt earned him 1 worth of 
recognition.  Foolhardiness can sometimes pay.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The grave that SARATOGA GLORY had dug for STRATOSTAR may yet be filled with 
the body of SPYMASTER.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  STRATOSTAR lives 
still!  The Warty Toad declares a free round for PERSONAL LEGEND and all of SARATOGA 
GLORY, for having revenged FISHERMAN'S WHARF's GEROGE ROFT for killing one of their 
comrades.  Is it really true that ARVAT has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ARVAT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ARVAT, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Rage, Duelmaster?  Sounds appropriately Delarquany to me! -- The Old Man

Lorie -- You jerk!  You stole my batteries! -- Hearing Aid

Evil Fantasies -- I am just too old to go and go like that with you.  What for? --
Senile

The Trainer -- That Silver Train is sure a cool jewel! -- The Old Man

Mad Max -- You're breakin' my heart with that Gecko thing, you know.  Respect your
elders! -- The Old Man

Bandit Price -- Thank you very much for acting like the target I was looking for.
This Maul thingy is a pretty cool weapon.  I enjoyed smashing you in the head
multiple times. -- Silver Train the Lord Protector

Fisherman's Wharf -- Thank you. -- Silver Train

Pyschotron -- Thanks for the duel.  Look me up when you get to Free Blades if you
want another go at it.  I'm off to the Dark Arena now so you and your guildmate don't
have to worry about me anymore here in Arvat. -- Stratostar

Maud'Dib -- Eek!  I suck....  Now if you excuse me I have a bloodfeud to attend to.
-- Personal Loser

Geroge Roft -- I shall be avenged.... -- the Ghost of Thunder Sword

Well, Thunder Sword has passed us on thanks to Geroge and his Short Spear.  Thunder
Sword was set up 11(1)-13-13-21-11-9-7.  No ratings.  Even with the 21 WT he only
learned 7 skills in 5FE.  I figured he would hit his stride in time and be a solid
warrior eventually but that never happened.  We will miss him. -- the Trainer

The Old Man -- Andorian?  Definitely not, I am a Free Blader through and through, I
just don't gloat about kills.  Killing is a part of the game and it definitely
happens I just choose not to rub it in.  Now let me find that nurse of yours to clean
your dentures. -- the Trainer

Stratostar is off to Free Blades!  I actually had gotten both him and Silver Train on
back to back turns and I had a blast with them both.  I actually had thought that
Stratostar would end up being the better of them at one point at least based on
numbers alone.  However, Silver Train started off 4-0 in the arena and runner upped
Apprentices and Stratostar started off at 2-2 in the arena and stunk up Apprentices
at 0-3.  He eventually hit his stride and finished up his career going a combined 22-
6-2 including a TV in this past Adepts tourney.  Stratostar is 13-11-7-21-11-10-11
Masters in Riposte and Decise and Ad Ex's in Init and Attack.  Other than being +2
Rip he is completely mode.  His faves are Mod/Low, Scimitar, Decise tactic and
Riposte skills.  He too will be retired in Free Blades. -- the Trainer

Shai Aylt -- Hey, congrats on the win and all but watch those head shots, buddy.
Hopefully after this next turn I am done fighting you Shadow Ranger people for a
while.... -- Demonic Egg

Fillis Bouy -- <UGH!>  Me like to win.  <GROAN!>  Me win.  <UNGH!> -- Frankenrooster

Defiance -- OUCH!  Thanks for the skills at least.  Now, I got to go and get me
another burger.  I am hungry. -- Cannibalistic Cow

Rage -- Congrats on taking the title away from that mute Roland.  Now, write a column
or I will sick the Cow on you.  He tends to drool a lot too! -- Mad Max

Old Man -- Hard to return the favor if Bald Spots sits out.  Then again, as you say,
his wit is below the idiocy level so perhaps he forgot. -- Angels of Pain

Bald Spots -- You're the one who killed my teammate.  You kill one of us, you face as
many of us as can beat you during our 4 turns of bloodfeud.  It's a team policy.  You
don't like it, you can sit out.  Wait, you already did that.... -- Rage

Roland -- The Arvat record for wins is 32, held by Sartre of Philosophers--any chance
you can make it that long? -- Devil Advocates

Bill Berith -- I hope you step into deep water and drown.  You probably couldn't
catch a fish in your mouth to save your life. -- Heron

Frankenrooster -- Hmm, you'd think he could at LEAST have used chickens of the same
color, wouldn't you? -- Fillis Bouy
P.S.  And all male.  It was strange to see you lay an egg.

Ghost of Thunder Sword -- Cheese, I'm really sorry about that.  I wouldn't have done
it if I could've stopped myself. -- a remorseful Geroge Roft
P.S.  And on your own challenge, that must make it embarrassing, huh?
P.P.S.  Would you believe I was aiming for your leg?  (sigh)  Neither would I, but
that's what my papers claim.

Belle Zeybul -- Sorry, I don't care for the masterful women. -- Sarlow

Anguish -- Well, I did WARN you not to bite into that pepper. -- Peter Piquin

Mad Max -- The cook-off is in Caleam.  Jorja says if we start one here, we're in
trouble with her.  She didn't say what KIND of trouble, but I'm not sure I want to
find out. -- Peter Piquin

Mad Max -- A cook-off can be fun, if more than one team participates.  Basically, the
one in Caleam involved every warrior involved trying to come up with some kind of
fancy food idea based on the name of his opponent.  Okay, maybe it's a kind of dumb
idea, but when nobody's talking, what have you got to work with EXCEPT their names?
It started, if I recall, with the hypothesis that a warrior was named Smaynurn after
some kind of figs, and what one could do, in a clean, culinary way, with figs.  It
ran for months, there were barbeques, debates on marinade and ways to tell if the
fish was fresh, all kinds of things.  Actually, it was fun, especially once the other
team got involved.  They've gone inactive now, though, so it's tapering off.  Oh,
well. -- Jorja

We said kind words to Headless?  (pause to check back list of personals)  Oh.  Right.
Well, who wouldn't congratulate him (her/it), if it means no Headless Chicken left
behind?  Though I'm told they can be used for bait. -- Jorja and Fisherman's Wharf

Our congratulations to Stratostar.  Stun them on the Isle! -- Fisherman's Wharf

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
