     The sun set, and twilight passed quickly, aided by the clouds in the west.  The
moon rose in the east, turning the rocks and brush of the hilltop to a pattern of
black and silver.  Artebas looked around and frowned.  He had studied this hilltop by
daylight and was thoroughly familiar with it, but now it was...strange.  Was that
black blotch over there the key stone he was supposed to look for, or just a
miscellaneous shadow?  He opened his mouth to curse the light and the shadows and
then closed it again.  This might not be the best time and place to utter a curse.
What if Something heard him?
     But there were curses in his mind as he got up and made his way to the stone or
shadow or whatever it was, tripping over other stones he hadn't even noticed by
daylight.  When he fell full length into a thorny bush, his self-control deserted him
and he let rip with an old curse that he had picked up from a book long ago.  "Tarzak
ja kolmo!  Sarak!"  He had never known the precise meaning, something on the order of
"Tarzak take it, NOW!" but the hard edges of the words had always pleased him.  He
had used it before many times, well, not LOTS of times, but often enough to know that
nothing would happen.  And his fingers were telling him, as he got his feet under
him, that the stones he was tripping over were so deeply buried that there was no
more than half an inch to catch his boots.  It was ridiculous!  Half an inch?  It was
practically lese majeste, and it WOULD be once he found the power here.
     A hand fastened on his shoulder, a big hand like a vice with clawed tips.  It
lifted him to his feet and turned him.
     Artebas stared up.  And up.  Into a black silhouette against the moonlight,
featureless except for long, narrow eyes that shone as silver as the moon itself.
     "What would you have from me?"  The voice was as deep as thunder, and as
inhuman.
     Artebas scrambled his wits together.  "What can you give me?"
     After a moment that stretched into eternity, the earthquake voice said, "He who
knows my name should know my powers.  Unless he is a thief or an impostor who has not
come by the knowing through the proper trials."
     Proper trials?  Artebas didn't like the sound of that.  Or the idea that this...
Tarzak might take violent offense if it turned out he was not "properly initiated."
What had the book said?  It had been a sort of magician's journal, he knew that.  He
always looked for books like that, books that would tell him what magicians knew
without him having to go through the long and unpleasant searches they had
undertaken.  "I have been through the Gate of Lorthkan," he said, putting as much
dignity as possible into his voice.  Better not let this Tarzak realize how
frightened he was!  "I have touched the Seal of Koth."  It came back to him as though
he had the journal open in front of him.  Tarzak was linked to transportation, could
move people and things from place to place.  Yes.  Good, he had a handle on the
situation then!  Concealing his relief as he had his fear, he said, "It has been long
since I passed that gate and touched that seal, however, and a few trifling details
escaped me for a moment.  But I would have you take me to the entrance to the
Catacombs of Jehrans."
     There was a silence that seemed to stretch even farther than the first one.
Then Tarzak said, "If you have forgotten 'details', then it would be well that you do
not enter the Catacombs, especially on the night of the full moon."
     Artebas nearly touched the page inside his shirt again but restrained himself.
That would be giving something away, and he didn't want to do that.  Didn't dare do
that.  But he was sure, nearly sure, that the inscription at the bottom of the page
was one of protection and command, so that the bearer of the parchment could enter
the Catacombs freely and command the power he found there.  "I will go now."
     The silhouette shifted slightly, as though Tarzak had shrugged.  "As you will.
It is no part of my duty to advise those who would rush headlong on their fates."
The silhouette moved lower and changed shape again.  "Step onto my hand, and I will
convey you there."

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JHANS, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Managers were muttering after KAMIKAZI showed JHANS 
what they could do:  4-1-1 to move up by 11.  Say what you will about blind luck and 
dirty fighting, but REVELATION will tell you 146-97-8 is nothing to laugh at...  THE 
MATRIX had cause to celebrate, after MR. ANDERSON got 25 points by beating HARPO.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 10 
points to KAT KAT.  (Discrete enough, PONY SOLDIER?) Duelmaster SANDPAPER CONDOM from 
MEMPHIS MAFIA II is going for the gold, as he challenged THE DREAMING's THE LOVE 
BELOW.  Ooh, the excitement!  Now I can't insult THE LOVE BELOW, as he has gloriously 
dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) 
Word has it one team in JHANS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed 
life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of LEGENDARY BASTARDS should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of BOOKIE'S BROTHEL, so did that sorry team shy from 
LEGENDARY BASTARDS Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, RIZZLE-DIZZLE is the most challenged warrior.  As a 
confidence booster, REAPER challenged RIZZLE-DIZZLE, down 27 points.  Do you also 
slay vicious rodents in your spare time, REAPER?  REAPER beat RIZZLE-DIZZLE with a 
point difference of 27.  So this is what JHANS calls a duel.  This will make an 
interesting tale.  Take heed JHANS, of the unprincipled action of SERPENT OF OLD.  By 
challenging MEDICINE MAN, 18 points below it, SERPENT OF OLD besmirches the noble art 
of dueling.  Warriors of JHANS!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base 
challenge of SERPENT OF OLD?  Them's the breaks, GRIM.  Expecting fair challenges 
from SUICIDAL DREAMS is evidently too much to ask.  KILL-KID FIZZLE defeated GRIM.  
The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.  AYLA SECURA found herself challenged by a 
warrior 21 below:  T'HAEL.  T'HAEL of THE FALLEN kept hers wits as she lost to AYLA 
SECURA.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Those who owe 
GROUCHO of THE CLOWNS money and had written him off, take note:  he'S BACK FROM THE 
DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  HIGH ELF in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for DA19 of 
MAROON MIDGET.  Maybe that certain serving girl(?) at Lucas Lounge will be!  I get a 
special thrill from seeing innocent boy like FIREFLY from THE DREAMING get 
pointlessly killed.  Good show, 'WERD!  (No mercy.) Death (in the form of SASQUATCH 
COWBOY of LEGENDARY BASTARDS) knocked on MONKEY SHINE's door.  What will HELTER 
SKELTER do?  The suspense is killing me.  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he 
will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHANS is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  JHANS, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has 
agreed to foot my bill at Lucas Lounge.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Az -- I killed this guy for the kLk bounty. -- Clover

Az -- I killed Ikthanus of the team Space Wolves for the KLK bounty. -- JE, who can
be reached on the duel2 forums or the DOOMCorps forums to collect

Space Wolves -- Sorry about that.  Oh wait never mind this is Jhans.  I am sorry that
I might not be around for the bloodfeud.  I don't want to make excuses, but the
coffers are a little low after the last tourney. -- JE, manager of Errata

Jhans -- I declare shenanigans against DOOMcorps.  SHENANIGANS!!! -- Azrael

DOOMcorps -- Nice tactics.  Shame on us, I admit you got us twice.  Get one guy to
run his mouth and tick us off to get our full wrath and then he doesn't run.  Sure it
leaves us open for the rest of you.  But it sure makes that yellow streak down your
backs glow like a thousand suns. -- Azrael

Ill Kid K -- Don't worry about any sneak freak attacks from me.  If you got something
that fits in the chinks of scale mail no wonder you are so bitter.  But anyway the
only thing on Mt. DOOM large enough to satisfy the physical needs of the Big Bald
Booty Daddy is your big mouth.  Don't scream, Kid.  Don't scream. -- Azrael

Polarius -- Re:  nasty skanky Donna--roflmao. -- Azrael

Polarius -- Three Stooges, hey?  Here is three stooges for you:  P finger--pokes
Polarius in the eye, Polarius reaches up and covers face, Talon kicks him in the
shins, Polarius bends over and grabs his leg, Azrael drops a single hand axe-handle
smash to the back of Polarius' neck.  Polarius drops to the ground semi-conscious.
Azrael bends down and whispers, " nyuck, nyuck, nyuck."
