                                        Pt. 2

     I am Azrael.
     I am dying.
     My body is destroyed.  Thrown into the river near Jhans by his traitorous Jr.
Commander, Gargomel.  I float.
     The bodies of my other commanders float and tumble past me.
     The madness, so long now eating at my mind, fades.  Oblivion beckons.
     And is denied.
     /AZRAEL.  WELCOME AZRAEL./
    Water fills my mouth as I try to speak.
     /SPEAK WITH YOUR MIND./
     (Who, who said that?)
     /I HAVE MANY NAMES.  YOU MAY CALL ME ANUCRON./
     (Show yourself.)
     /I HAVE SUMMONED YOU HERE FOR A PURPOSE/
     (Nobody summons Azrael!!!!)
     /THEN IT PLEASES ME TO BE THE FIRST./
     (State your business.)
     /THIS IS MY COMMAND.  YOU ARE TO SEEK OUT THE ELVEN TALISMAN OF CREATION.  IT IS
THE ONE THING, THE ONLY THING THAT CAN STAND IN MY WAY./
     (Why should I?  What's in it for me?)
     /YOUR...BARGAINING POSTURE IS HIGHLY DUBIOUS.  BUT VERY WELL, I WILL GIVE YOU A
NEW BODY.  AND NEW TROOPS TO COMMAND./
     (And?!)
     /AND NOTHING!!  YOU BELONG TO ME NOW./
     (I BELONG TO NOBODY!!!)
     /PERHAPS I MISJUDGED YOU.  PROCEED ON YOUR WAY TO OBLIVION/
     (No!  No, I accept your terms!!!!  I ACCEPPPPPP..........)
     /EXCELLENT./
     I see red light and am rebuilt.  Bones reform, laced with metal for strength.
Muscles restitch, and enlarge.  Wounds close, padding placed under the dermal layers
for protection.  He sees his commanders rebuilt.
     /BEHOLD!!!  AZRAELUS PRIME!!/
     /AND THESE SHALL BE YOUR MINIONS,  LIBEL THE TRACKER.  AND HER HUNTSMAN THE
SWEEPS./
     /RAZIEL, THE WARRIOR.  AND HIS ARMADAMAN./
     /AND THIS SHALL BE YOUR SHIP.  NOW GO.  DESTROY THE TALISMAN./
     (I destroy the talisman and anyone who gets in my way, My Lord.  Fallen, to
Jhans.)
     The Jhans arena.  Gargomel is being raised to the Manager of the Fallen as his
reward for betrayal.  The gates slam open and a small group of golems and three
humans enter the arena.
     "Who disrupts my coronation?" asks Gargomel.
     "Coronation, Gargomel?  This looks more like bad comedy."
     "Azrael? Is that you?"
     "Here's a hint!"  Azraelus yells as he levels Gargomel with a blast of white
light from his hand.  Gargomel's color then reverses and he is gone.  Nothing left
but his boots.  "Would anyone else care to fill his shoes?"
     "What he say his name was?" someone in the crowd yells.
     "AZRAELUS.  AZRAELUS PRIME." I respond.

     Barudai was not in a position to look across the river at Jhans.  He was on the
other side of the hill, and near the bottom.  He did not want to see Jhans, and even
more, he did not want anybody from Jhans to see him.  The Rirorni considered himself
a scout, but he knew that many people--from Jhans--might well call him a spy.  And
nobody like spies much.  They probably wouldn't believe him if he said that his...
scouting had no object that was hostile to Jhans.  He wouldn't have believed it in
their place, even though he knew that this time it was the truth.  In fact, if he got
his information back to the gathering of shamans near Rocanis in time for them to
act, his mission would be of great benefit to Jhans and all southern Alastari.
     That prospect was not as comforting as he had hoped.  He still had to get back
to Rocanis, after all, and the renegade's men were hunting him.
     He studied as much of the sky as he could see from his shelter under an
overhanging rock.  Definitely a storm coming, and not a little one, either.  This
would be the kind of storm that menaced the life of anyone fool enough to be out in
it.  Hail like fists.  Floods of rain.  Lightning like the end of the world.  He
tried to back farther into his inadequate shelter, but his horse was behind him--not
a foolish beast!--pressed against the slanting stone.  Still, when he wasn't moving,
he was leaving no tracks, and the renegade's men would have to take shelter somewhere
also--or die under the flail of the storm.
     The clouds covered the sky, blocking stars and moon, but lightning shredded the
darkness.  The rain held off.  To Barudai, that meant that when the waters finally
came, they would be devastating.  Every little fold of the plain would be a roaring
stream.  Flat lands would be lakes.  Travel would be impossible, tonight and for days
to come.
     The last was an uneasy thought.  The renegade's men could have magical aids;
there were shamans in his camp.  He had glimpsed a feather cloak in one tent, and
that meant flying.  A man could fly above the waters.  Where as he, Barudai, had only
his own two feet and his horse.
     Movement caught his eye, and he stared out anxiously.  If one of the renegade's
assassins found him here--  His sword was in his hand as he searched for an attacker.
     There!
     Wheeling below the clouds, dodging the lightning, bird-shaped but without a
bird's grace.  Impossible to judge size against the sky, but he thought it was too
big for any mortal bird.  Trust the renegade to inspire men to dare even such a
storm!  The flying figure circled again and aimed toward the hill, that much Barudai
could see.  And it was getting larger, which meant lower.
     The clouds burst like a waterskin, cutting visibility to nothing.  Even a true
bird would have trouble flying in that...wouldn't it?  Yes, of course.  There was as
much water as air in the sky now, it was hard to breathe.  Flying must be impossible.
If the flyer crashed to the ground, all would be well.  But if it managed to land....
     He stared at the blind wall of falling water.  Sometimes it turned bright white
with lightning, other times it was black.  Nothing was visible beyond it.  Nothing to
do but wait.  He hated waiting.
     The ground trembled under his feet, and his horse screamed, barely audible over
the storm.  The animal's warmth was gone from behind him, replaced by a cold wind.
     Turning slowly, shaking with cold and fear, Barudai stared into a tunnel where
there had been solid rock before.  It was not completely dark, though the light was
faint, without color or visible source.  Unfamiliar symbols crawled on walls as
smooth as glass, colored purple, and poison green, and red as blood.
     In the depth of the tunnel, shadows moved.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JHANS games.  Former top team SHOUT HEY HAMMERZ was 
unseated this week as THE DREAMING moved up from 6th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher 
you rise the harder you fall.  This week ANARKYSTS went 1-1-0 and fell 12 notches 
into 22nd!  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness 
how this week WARRIOR'S went 4-1-0 to move up 9 in the rankings.  My praise to 
ARGONAUTS for their 3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought 
round deserving of notice!  NIKITA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested DIEBOLD and was awarded 30 points in recognition. 
In one of the week's more notable duels, APOCALYPSE put down PIMP BEEFAROONY, causing 
him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Although REAPER made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious THE LOVE BELOW.  Heed 
this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city 
shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in JHANS these days is SPACE WOLVES.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of THE FALLEN are catching the bulk 
of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  HELIX PRIME take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in JHANS.  As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip 
of fear lays hold of hers heart.  True, SHADOW STARR?  Who could miss your "brave" 
challenge of RIZZLE-DIZZLE?  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as 
RIZZLE-DIZZLE was defeated by SHADOW STARR.  Is this what passes for courage in 
JHANS?  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, 
gladiators, how HERACLES of ARGONAUTS challenged down 16 points to BANE.  The Fates 
are not kind to the cowardly, as evidenced by the fact that HERACLES was overcame by 
BANE.  And who can now doubt that BANE is a hardy opponent?  A match that raised a 
few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that ORPHEUS posted a challenge against 
the more highly recognized ELECTRONIC.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand 
ORPHEUS subdued ELECTRONIC.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  WHIRLING MIST has sworn to take up religion upon living to tell of 
hers recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  Fate is a fickle 
mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the 
victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in JHANS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Az -- Yeah, Three Stooges, you know...you poke Bookie, Bookie pokes P, P pokes his
finger in his...oh, never mind! -- Polarius

Donna -- It's your birthday, baby!  Say Timmmmmmaaaayyyyyy.

Pixie -- Good fight, again! -- Prince of Lies

K!d -- I'm still here. -- Pixie Dust, your $100 bounty baby

Azrael -- Firstly, you should learn understand what you're responding to before you
respond.  Secondly, you should understand how grossly unimpressive and unintelligent
it is to take someone's words and mirror them back to the source.  Lastly, I applaud
your honesty last turn.  I look forward to the day when I bend over and spit in your
bloodied and broken face.  Good day. -- !ll.kid.k, Warlord of DOOMcorps

Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.
