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

     The coolies, a stout team clad in winter gear, worked the giant cranking
mechanism, sweat coating their filthy bodies despite the bitter chill of the Green
Mountains located outside Aljafir.  The chairlifts, filled with beaming passengers,
ascended from the base into the heavans towards the snow capped summit, shrouded in
clouds and perpetual snow some 5,000 feet away.  With a "heave, ho" and legendary
coolie discipline, they propelled the chairs skyward into the frigid afternoon winter
     At the summit, accompanied by Trebonius the Magnificent and Augustus II, Caesar
stared down the narrow, winding slope of Panic Button, an incredible black double
diamond with an unforgiving vertical drop.  One his favorites for years, but not for
the faint of heart!  Its moguls were legendary and had sent many a skier tumbling
down the steep slopes towards certain pain and bone bruising doom.  Yet Caesar had
mastered the Panic Button many times and stared down its treacherous slope with the
confidendce of an experienced skier--and perhaps a touch of madness.  The afternoon
wind on Skye Peak was whipping snow about and from their lofty perch, the men could
see miles of forest covered mountains, coated with the white powder of winter.
     Caesar turned to face El Magnifico, his face covered with a partial mask and
goggles.  His cheeks coated with Bag Balm, a legendary local substance that prevented
wind burn and exposure.
     "I'm getting too old for these double diamonds!" exclaimed Caesar.  "Perhaps
next year we should start thinking more in terms of blue and green trails."
     "Sire, green trails!" cried Trebonius in disbelief.  "Please say it isn't so!!!"
     "Yes, green trails."  retorted Caesar.  "We're not as young as we used to be..."
     "But, sire." returned Trebonius, a clever smile on his face.  "We're immortal,
     "Well I don't feel so immortal afterwards." replied Caesar.  "My legs feel like
bricks after these runs..."
     "Let's hit these moguls, gentlemen." chimed in the younger Augustus II, a rising
Roman star in the Primus arena.
     With that, the three men seemed to leap from the mountain face as they plunged
from the summit down the steep trail into the Green Mountain air.  It was sunny,
cold, snowy and the conditions were ideal.  Every trail was open, coolies labored to
keep every lift operational and the base was over fifty inches of packed powder.
What could be better?  Caesar wished he could winter here forever in the land of
moose muffins, moguls, maple syrup and cheddar cheese...
     Later that day, on the service road, the three men sat at the bar sipping their
Goombay Smash rum drinks, a favorite among the ski community and a feature drink at
many of the local establishments.  The fruit juices mixed nicely with the Goslings
Black Seal and were topped off with a drizzle of Bacardi 151.  Just like Mom used to
make.  The appetizers were half priced and the skiers dove in with the ravenous
hunger that one can only muster within from a day on the slopes.
     "We must return to Arvat, sire." stated Trebonius.  "Since the financial crisis,
the bailout of Roman Pillars Bank & Trust and the collapse of the Riverfront real
estate project, the Arvat economy is starting to recover.  The Arvat Stock Exchange
is up over 60% since the March 9th lows of 2009 and it is rumored the Dark One has
profited tremendously from beaten and battered shares obtained during the crisis."
     "We can return to the city and make huge profits from our real estate holdings."
stated Augustus II.  "Our gold holdings have soared in value as people have sought
the safety of precious metals as a hedge against a strong Arvat dollar and
inflationary fears.  Perhaps we can persuade the Arvat Central Bank to leave interest
rates dangerously low so we can borrow money for specualtion into foreign city-state
     "There is more money to be made, sire! We can create the mother of all dollar
carry trades!" exclaimed Trebonius, raising his Goombay into the air.  "A new bubble
can be formed!"
     "We can usher in a new era of financial prosperity, widen the disparity between
rich and poor and live like kings alongside our corrupt politicians!" smiled Augustus
II.  "The Arvat Senate will do as we wish.  We have greased their wheels nicely over
the years and they have passed favorable legislation that has profited big business.
Our big business!"
     "It is funny how these politicians claim to be interested in helping the
unwashed masses, but never do." chuckled Trebonius.  "This culture of corruption is a
perfect scenario for us."
     "And now that Coolie Health Care coverage has been thwarted by the Dark One's
friends in the Senate, we can keep labor costs low and exploit this pool of unskilled
workers as we see fit." stated Augustus II.
     "This sounds very appealing gentlemen." replied Caesar, deep in thought.  "But
hasn't that Do-Gooder Jorja also returned to the city?  Will she attempt to impede
our plans at ushering in a new economic bubble and era of greed?"
     "The Fishermen's Wharf faction can do little before the might of Rome, sire."
stated a confident Trebonius.  "We will crush her in the arena if she stands in our
way and send her fleeing from the city with her tail between her legs."
     "Like we did to that Cardow Hunters group of Neanderthals in Free Blades."
laughed Caesar.  "I sure wish she would come back there, our boys miss them dearly."
     All three men burst out in laughter.  The quesadillas and burritos were half
price, the Goombays flowed like water and the giant fireplace in the background
crackled with warmth as the sun set on the nearby slopes...
     Yes, the Romans were returning to Arvat, a major bastion of power for them since
the ancient days of 1987, a new economic bubble and era of greed awaiting them.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Bill P. Gore was in the team library at the Devil Advocates Guildhouse in the
City of Arvat.  The Guildhouse was one of the oldest buildings in town--an ancient
defensive tower that had been abandoned by the city militia over a century ago and
was completely refurbished by the team when they arrived over 20 years before.  The
archaic gothic style architecture led to the building being very quirky, with
numerous secret passagaes and concealed doors.  It was also very drafty and every
room was laden with tapestries and thick rugs to keep the chill of the stone at bay.
     Bill was sipping a glass of port and reading an old book which went over the
defensive strategy of the city in case of invasion.  It was an interesting study in
tactics, and Bill appreciated tactics and strategy.  As he finished a chapter on
siege warfare, the door opened and one of the new recruits sauntered in.  The man was
middle aged and very lean, wearing a black suit with a little white collar.  Bill
knew that he had been dragged up from one of the reality-spanning chambers that the
Dark One used to "draft" talent for the arena through space and time.  Also he was
some sore of religious man where he came from.
     "Top 'o the mornin' to ye, laddie.  A fine day for reading and sippin' o' the
sacrement, isn't it now?"
     Bill nodded.  "Father O'Lies, isn't it?  I haven't had time to speak with you
     "Ah, no worries, laddie, I've been larnin' the ways around here.  It's been
quite time consumin, don't ye know.  I saw ye fight last week.  Well done, laddie,
well done."
     "Thank's, uh, Father.  That's a sort of strange name."
     "True, ye might think so.  But I'm a priest, don't ye know.  Or at least I was,
before the hole in the sky opened and I ended up here.  It's been quite the change."
     Bill agreed.  It was definitely a change to be pulled out of the culture you'd
been born to, only to be pressed into service as a gladiator.  Still, there was a
reason each of them was selected and it was part of their contracts that after their
service in the arena they could be returned to their own dimension if they so chose.
Most stayed, however.  The challenge of the arena was usually incentive enough--
either that or the wealth accrued during the arena career.
     Father O'Lies sat down and poured himself a glass of port.  "Laddie, I
accidentally read some o' the mail addressed to you this fine mornin' and noticed
that ye are workin' with the local distillery to sponsor an event at the arena.  It
occured to me that I have a wee bit of experience with the fine spirits myself, and
I'd be pleased ta help ye, if I can."
     Bill was a bit taken aback, but the new gladiator seemed quite earnest in his
desire to help.  "Very well.  I have a meeting with some of the management of the
distillery this afternoon and the GC cross-scheduled me for a public appearance.  If
you would go in my place, there's not much to talk about.  We just need them to agree
to our final cost, as listed on this form here, and then we need to schedule a date.
I have a calendar with all the available options here."
     Father O'Lies scooped up the paperwork and nodded.  "I'd be happy ta help,
     As he headed out, he smiled to himself.  Duelmaster or not, the fools here were
as easy to dupe as they had been back home.  Of course he hadn't been a priest, just
a grifter with a flair for the con.  He wasn't even Irish...  Surpressing a chuckle,
he headed off to see what opportunities for profit he might have with this

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARVAT to see 
what's new.  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, APOCALYPSE!  'Cause they got 
3-1-1 and moved up to 6th!  MVP award for *CURIOUS TODDLER*?  CITY ON A HILL's proud 
of her after beating FILLIS BOUY and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer major upsets! 
CARNAGE's match with KUNG-FU MASTER cost him a loss of 16 points!  This Duelmaster is 
like something else!  BILL P. GORE stopped ARTEMIDORUS V dead in his tracks!  Who was 
the wiseguy that said ARVAT's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Warty Toad?  
Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  FRIEND OR FOE? was the most 
avoided team.  Is a 19-26-4 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret 
why ANGELS OF PAIN's been avoiding FRIEND OR FOE? so much?  Or is it just that 
they're too scared?  Like, is SARLOW popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in 
all of ARVAT!  He's got a 15-46-0, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Everyone has problems, but why did ANGELS 
OF PAIN send GLUTTONY to the Dark Arena?  He had a 4-0-0, and I thought he looked 
neat on the sands...  What a bummer!  BIG MINNOW got wasted by HAMMIR!  But with a 
4-6-0, I guess FISHERMAN'S WHARF aren't too bummed.  Hey you guys, don't you think 
your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ARVAT is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Sarlow -- Jeez.  I lucked into that one.  But it's showing me more about my abilities
to tackle the endurance warriors, which had been a challenge for me.  One more time,
perhaps, seeing as I'm still below you in the rankings? -- Envy

Bubba G. -- Wow.  You called Jorja a he.  I bet she tracks you down and teaches you
that there's a difference... -- E. Bliss

Mr. Bates -- Mmm.  Garlic Chicken...  Mmm.... Garlic Anything.... -- Gluttony
PS.  I've been told that I'm on my way to the Dark Arena, which really isn't fair,
seeing as I'm 4-0.  Like I'm not doing my part!

Killer Jr. -- That was more like it.  I looked a bit better and pretty much
controlled the fight.  Still, you're a tough young guy.  Good luck in the future and
please don't kill any more of my teammates, otherwise I might be back! -- Lil

Envy -- You mean like, "I wish my record was more like yours"?  I can do that. --

Malice -- That, no.  Let Sarlow feel envy, heck, *I* will feel envy, but I'll pass on
the malice.  What good does it do?  Envy may drive one to work harder, but malice,
no. -- Fillis Bouy

Gluttony -- What, are we getting a whole round of you guys?  I don't need gluttony,
ah, make that "more gluttony."  How do you think I got to be a... BIG Minnow

Abaddon -- Not today, thanks. -- Nuparine
P.S.  How is it that you aren't an Advocate of the Devil?

Evil Richard -- Ah, I didn't realize there were more Aruaki around here.  Take care
not to give us a bad name. -- Fisher Bates

Rampage -- I tried to push myself enough to take out Envy, but... I have a reputation
to maintain. -- Sarlow
