The stars gave more light than city people realized, but not enough to tell Artemisia what was approaching around the blacker curve of Barikala island. Something was. Probably the canoes her lookout had guessed: she could see the flicker of starlight off what might be paddles rising and falling. That it was to be an attack, she didn't doubt. There was no other reason for approaching in the darkness like this. These waters were too dangerous for-- Something bumped against the side of her ship, scraped along it. Other bumps, maybe a dozen...the canoes. The Lady Protector drew her cutlass and knew that her crewmen were doing the same. Did these attackers really think she would be so careless as not to notice their approach? Something showed over the rail, dark against the dark water, but it gleamed white briefly in the starlight. She took one long step forward and brought her blade down on it. From close up, she could smell it, a horrible rotten-meat stink. It fell away and hit the water and the canoe below with a sodden clunk-splash. There was no time to think about it; another one was reaching over the rail beside it. She cut sideways, then reversed to cut the other way at a third. Her crew was lined up on either side of her, hacking steadily. There was no sound but their grunts of effort, and their feet shifting on the deck. "Not everyone here!" Artemisia commanded. "Mr. Horlon, take a half-dozen men and watch the other rail before they come at us from behind!" She could hear her first officer's low-voiced commands, and men moving out of the line. The ones still fighting on this rail moved to cover the gaps in their line; it was actually better now, because they had room to work. "These are DEAD men!" one of her sailors exclaimed. "They're already DEAD!" Zombies? Should that be possible with the Arcanum weakened? Not that it mattered. Dead or alive, she didn't want them on her ship. "Make them twice dead, then," she ordered. In truth, the zombies were not hard to fight with. You had to dismember them to get them to stop attacking, but they had no skill. Since her crew was more numerous, the end was not in doubt. And whoever had launched this attack must know that.... A feint? She wanted desperately to look around for the other attack, the real one. But the problem with a really good distraction like this was that it was dangerous. If you ignored it, then the distraction became the real attack. Artemisia hacked at another zombie trying to climb over the rail and realized that she had been able to see it very clearly. Too clearly for a moonless night. She glanced up quickly and then froze. The pillar of light over Barikala had become a roaring torrent, a blaze to match the sun...and there were shapes moving within the shining column. Approaching Niatoli Island: Ghenis had settled for a small, fast ship, the kind that was used for smuggling small cargoes. He'd been hunted in Zukal; he wasn't sure why. Had Pelishtekan somehow guessed that he, Ghenis, had become a deadly enemy? It didn't seem possible, since he'd spoken to no one of his plan, but maybe the damned Ferencian had ways.... In fact, the man must be a wizard of some kind to pull of the "divine signs" that had appeared during the worship performances. Which was all the more reason not to go back to Zukal until he had found the TRUE demongod. There were men belonging to the cult who owned boats, but Ghenis had not gone to one of them for transport. No point in making his trail obvious. Being a gladiator gave him contacts Pelishtekan couldn't guess at. He'd rented the boat from a man who asked no questions, a man who had been a gladiator on Barikala before the invasion. Ghenis leaned back against the low cabin in the middle of the boat and began to plan his operation on Niatoli. Contact his teammate, Cousin Og. Then...other gladiators. Potential worshippers for the demongod, when he found It. And allies. He'd have to raise some money, you couldn't start a rival cult without money. Piracy, maybe, or a little treasure hunting. Maybe raid...Monuntial. Yeah, no one would mind, no one that mattered to him, anyway, if he raided the invaders. DUELMASTER'S COLUMN Notes from the arena champ. Hey all, Light Da Pyre here. Looks like I lasted another turn at the top spot. I've got no specific matchups this turn, so it's an open challenge for the throne. If you want it, come and get it. Light Da Pyre SPY REPORT So why do I have this bag over my head? Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and I'm going to give you a spy report!. We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on. CASINO HAMMERZ now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it. A stormcloud is brewing over the PIG BATTALION guildhouse. Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send the team to the Dark Arena. Coming up with a solid 5-0-0 outing, CASINO HAMMERZ has advanced 5 places in the rankings. It looks like the guys(?) at BAD BREAD had a good week as they went 3-1-0 to put them in 10th place. I guess steroids help! Hey everybody, watch out for STONE FACE HAMMER, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon. Keep your eye on this guy. And falling like a basher in the top ten was DARTMAN, who dropped 10 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with HEY, ZEUS!. It's a proud day for the BAD BREAD stable, as their warrior, TOMB SCONE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay. But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle! Did you hear that JAILBIRDS was most avoided team this week? Well, knowing the personal hygiene of JAILBIRDS' warriors, I'm not surprised! For those of you who like math, try this one: JAILBIRDS + Weapons That go Boom = VEGGIES + Avoid City. And who is this DARK DUMPLING you ask, with 100 points and a 20-18-1 record. Ooh, the tales I could tell! Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day drinking to their memory. Better tanked than dead! Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster. Well, there's the manager of the NIYTYOLE ISLAND giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?). Well, there goes another Spy Report. Good luck in next week's fights.

Don't miss out on this chance to own some fantastic warriors! There are ADM warriors available in every class from Primus to Freshmen, as well as over a dozen Basic stables. Does a Slasher with +4 attack, +4 decisiveness, +3 initiative and +2 riposte sound good? How about a Lunger who received the benefit of a TC prize, has TVed three times after graduating--and still hasn't maxed out his skills!? How about a Striker in the Freshmen class who has decisiveness for a favorite learn and the MAUL for a favorite weapon!? Or perhaps you prefer playing in Basic. Then how does a stable with four Adept class warriors who have a combined record of 41-19-9 sound? Or maybe a stable with three 21-Will warriors? Or perhaps a stable with four Initiates and a Rookie who have a combined record of 23-6-1? The quality of the lots is excellent. All you need to view and bid on the lots is go to: http://members.aol.com/jvmerlino/mardigras.html If you want to be on the mailing list to receive regular updates on the auction, just send an e-mail to JVMerlino@aol.com. Merlin, aka John Merlino and also an ex- Warden of the Dark Circle, will be running this auction for me. I just moved to New Orleans and am likely currently stumbling around the French Quarter...because it's Mardi Gras! So I have named my auction in honor of this occasion. The auction will start on Saturday, March 13th, 2004, and will continue for several weeks. But you should get your bids in early if you want your best chance at owning any of these fantastic warriors and stables. Many thanks to all for your interest and your bids, Mongo 5 March 2004 Style Masters Symposium Hosted by Hammer The years have slipped by and many DM Managers have come and gone since the last Hammer's Handbook was compiled and printed. There is now a stirring within me to begin writing and editing yet another Handbook with a distribution date sometime in 2005. This Handbook will be made available via Email with a possibility of burning the info to a CD for distribution. Special arrangements will be made to provide the information via printed page to those contributors who are serving sentences behind bars. The working title of this new Handbook is "Style Masters Symposium Hosted by Hammer". Distribution of this Handbook is projected to be MAINLY for those DM Managers who contribute information/articles to Hammer by June 2004. Informative and entertaining articles should focus on insights regarding Any or All 10 Style Masters for both the Basic and ADM arenas as well as Tourney competition. Articles focusing on Weapons/Armor are also encouraged for inclusion. Whether you are a Newbie Manager without a clue or a Jaded Veteran; everyone has discovered something about this gaming experience that is both Insightful and Entertaining. Email Your Articles to HammerDM@fastermail.com or send them via Diplo to either Flower Hammerz (372) in DM 28 or Casino Hammerz (576) in DM 33. Length and Content of the Style Masters Symposium Hosted by Hammer will be Determined by the Quality and Quantity of Contributors Combined with the Literary Efforts of Hammer who is currently overseas for an indefinite period of time. Articles Contributed for this Project should be of Sufficient Length and Content to Warrant being Included to Receive the Finished Document when Hammer has completed this literary work to His satisfaction. Managers contributing articles are also requested to include a DM Bio of Themselves along with any Notable Successes and/or Failures during Their DM Career in Basic, ADM and/or Tourney Play. A listing of Active Stables would also be Helpful for Anyone Seeking to Reply to Contributors via Diplo, Email or Snailmail. May Your Blades Be Sharp And Your Wits Sharper! -- Hammer of Flower Hammerz (372) DM 28 and Casino Hammerz (576) DM 33 18 March 2004 St. Valentine's Day Massacre Update We are pleased to announce that the kLk sponsored St. Valentine's Day Massacre kill contest in DM 36 is off to a great start. We are also pleased to announce that in addition to the 10 team rollups we are also able to offer the renaming of a dark arena warrior as a prize to the manager with the most kills. The contest is only 2 turns old and is still wide open. There are currently 5 managers tied with one kill each. Anything can still happen so hurry up and get into the arena. On a personal note, no other alliances have entered the arena in force to challenge the kLk dominance. We were expecting The Firm to put up a fight for their supposed home arena. But, they were a no show. Guess they proved what they are really made of. *evil grin* Perhaps another alliance would like to step in to give us a challenge. We are throwing down the gauntlet. Perhaps the Chaos Inc. boys I keep hearing about would like to step in and challenge the kLk for arena dominance. If you don't show up, Chaos, don't feel bad. FAR better managers than you have been invited into Jhans but have chosen to pass on the offer. So if you consider yourself worthy to compete, like fierce competition, and enjoy arenas where the personals are as fierce as the fighting, come visit JHANS DM 36. We're already planning our next contest, "Capture the Flag," and have a storyline being actively worked on in the arena. Whatever you like about DM you can find it in JHANS.
