starting Near Vithicar:

     Tyre didn't curse as he trudged along under a heavy pack.  Sidon didn't curse,
either.  But Master Darque could tell they were both thinking about it.  He didn't
owe them--or anyone else--an explanation.  But they'd been with him a long time, were
loyal and reliable....
     "We can't travel magically because of the disturbance the idiot in Kurukar is
creating," he said.  "When we get down off the mountain, we might hire horses."
     Tyre said, "Ah," and Sidon nodded and almost smiled.  They resettled their packs
and kept walking.
     And walking.  It was a long way down off the mountain, which was one reason why
he'd picked that cave system to establish a laboratory in the first place.  Close to
the nexus of power that was Vithicar, and a long way from anywhere else.  Master
Darque had a lot of enemies, which was inconvenient but also a mark of his successes.
Practically a way of keeping score.
     He dismissed that idle thought from his mind.  What of the Black Kaliv of
Kurukar?  He needed a plan.  The first step would be to assemble all he knew about
the man, all he had picked up in bits and minute pieces over the years.
     Brother to the First Wife of the Satrap of Zuwayza, given the rule of Kurukar at
his sister's insistence when the previous kaliv had become incapacitated.  Some kind
of lingering debility on the previous man's part, and the possibility that it might
have been magically induced by his successor was... not something Darque had ever
heard suggested.  But it might be so, and might be worth considering.  Still, not
immediately critical.  Except that a man who could and would use magic to open a path
to power for himself, behavior which seemed to Darque quite... normal, even
admirable, had chosen Kurukar.  Why?  The place was a backwater.  A benighted
province with a poor climate and no great resources.  Why had the Black Kaliv not
chosen Aljafir?  Or Jurine?  Or...?
     Ah!  A very old image emerged from the vaults of his memory.  Centuries old, he
had been--briefly--studying the magical foundation of Alastari with some Fratsfan.
The man's name eluded him but probably didn't matter.  What mattered was the map.  It
had shown the lines of power that criss-crossed the isthmus of Alastari, and though
towns and borders, even rivers, had changed, the lines of power, what humans called
the "ley lines," would not have done so.  Not to any degree that mattered, anyway.
And there had been a major node in the area that was now Kurukar.
     So the Black Kaliv had made that choice for a sound reason.  Good to know.
There might be a way to turn that knowledge into a weapon, which was something Master
Darque excelled at:  turning knowledge into weapons.

Sorry no time for more, I've been sick. -- the Scribe

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I think, and hope, that you've bagged your limit of Children of Llyr this year,
Icicle.

                                    Maire McAngus

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, MURSKA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, ON THE ROCKS, since CHILDREN 
OF LLYR took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps up, 
URBAN JUNGLE, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 in the 
rankings?  PHILANTHROPISTS 2 turned their 2-0-0 turn into a 4th place rank in the 
listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  SAZERAC 
challenged MURSKA's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice 
of life, MURSKA may be getting bland, as MAIRE MCANGUS stays top dog in the city.  
I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know 
what's new, don't you, MURSKA?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  SEA DOGS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was ON THE ROCKS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, ABEL BROWN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  ABEL BROWN was challenged by one of URBAN JUNGLE's 
warriors this turn, with LORD SNOW having a lead of 20 points going into the fight.  
This is the sort of thing that makes the price of admission to MURSKA's games worth 
it!  LORD SNOW was defeated by ABEL BROWN!!  And we have ICICLE in a challenge, going 
down 12 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought ICICLE showed great skill and 
promise when it was overcame by HAMMERHEAD.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in MURSKA to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide 
Clemens

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 14-16, 2011.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-894-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), free 
airport shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--please make your reservation by December 22 
before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and people have been
unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the tournament info 
sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all looking forward to 
it and that we will see you there!
