Old Valamantis:

     The Old Forum of the ruins was empty of people, though strewn with bits of
rubble and random bushes.  Two hundred yards long and a hundred yards wide, and they
stood at the midpoint of one side and looked across to the battered, dark-stoned hulk
of the Old Valamantis arena on the other.  At the end to their left was a vast
building--or the remains of it--that had the layered foundation of an edifice built
on the remains of many previous ones.  Basalt, marble, sandstone, granite, porphyry.
     "The growth rings of the old city," Tensekai, the Silver Mage muttered.
     "Which is the Folstrom layer?" Ka D'Argo of Kolact asked.
     "The oldest.  The bottom one--black basalt," the mage answered.  "The old city
was founded by the Folstrom.  They laid out the ground plan and built the walls.
That," a twitch of his head to the left, "was their main...temple, although we don't
think they worshipped in the same sense we do now.  There at the other end--" a
forest of columns of many different stones, skillfully carved to look like different
species of trees, closed off the right end of the Forum, "that was their Grove of
     The gladiators looked one way, to the temple, the other way to the stone grove,
and then across at the arena.  The lower arcade was of black basalt.
     "So the arena was theirs, too."  Sputter of Dwes Eg hunched his shoulders
uneasily.  "Were the Bloodgames their idea?"
     Tensekai glanced at him, startled.  "I don't know, I never questioned that it
was Sheila of the Grey Wand who came up with that."  After a moment, he grimaced.
"She lived then, or near to then, and might have borrowed the idea from them."
     "So she's using blood magic, too, eh?"  Goblin licked his lips and took a step
forward.  "So much for her high-and-mighty attitude, then!  Not that I'm complaining,
mind you."
     "I have heard it said that Sheila of the Grey Wand would use ANY means to
protect Alastari," Tensekai muttered.  "But it never occurred to me that the
Bloodgames might be part of her magical defense...."  The thought appeared to make
him uneasy.
     "We won't get anything done standing around here," Goblin called back over his
shoulder.  I thought you were all eager to establish a magical perimeter inside the
arena.  Let's do it!"
     "Right," Sputter said.  He stepped forward to follow Goblin.  "You know, I
really don't want to go over there."
     "Me neither!"  Lavender Lance took Tensekai's arm.  "But we have it to do,
     The gladiators straggled out onto the Forum's cracked pavement.  Goblin was in
the lead; Ka D'Argo brought up the rear, facing backwards with his sword drawn.  None
of them felt comfortable with the fact that they'd gotten this far without being
     After a few minutes, Sputter glanced around and then at Tensekai.  "Why aren't
we hearing anything?  No birds or mice, okay, I wouldn't want to hang out here
either, if I was a bird or a mouse.  But not even any wind!"
     The mage's eyes were blank with concentration, and he didn't answer.
     "It's a trap," Ka D'Argo said quietly.  "The whole city, but especially the
arena, is a trap for anyone who ventures in without the permission of..." he gestured
at the ruins around the Forum, "whoever's there.  But we have to do it anyway.  Some
traps can only be destroyed from the inside."
     Lavender Lance burst into tears.  "I don't want to be trapped by...by liches or
whatever they are!"  But she kept walking toward the arena.
     No one tried to stop them.  This unexpected fact brought all of them to
agreement with the Kolactan's assessment that the arena was a trap.  And a very
unpleasant one.  Once they were inside the walls, and especially as they descended
the dark corridor toward the sunken fighting floor, the smell of the place grew
stronger.  It stank of blood and death and decay, with a sulfurous undertone that
none of them could identify.
     Until they stepped out onto the sands, under a dome of crimson light, and saw
the demonic creature waiting for them.
     And heard the iron bars clash into position behind them to prevent an exit.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Duck Tape, you sticky little golem, you'd you like THAT?  I, Myron Nagel,
am going to live forever--deservedly, there will never be anyone like me!--whereas
you will fall by the wayside, or anywhere else you feel like falling, the minute your
stickum wears out.  Ha!
     Although, if you DO manage to survive and go the Isle and enter Home Guard, I
will drop by and cheer when you join your teammate in beating up that disgusting Ski
Mask.  If ever there was a Duck that needed a quick thrust through the gizzard, Ski
Mask is that Duck.
     For those who burn to know, my superiority takes this form:  10-15-11-13-15-1-7-
13.  Extremely Cool, note that.  Oh, physically?  9-13-14-15-17-5-11.  Longsword,
moderate/moderate, parry tactic.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt XOCHITHLAN will ever be the same.  And let's see, KAHR, JACK fought QUIA 
RAYNE and gained 19 points and contributed to CRIMINAL ELEMENT's 3-2-0.  QUIA RAYNE 
has lost to KAHR, JACK, falling 18 points, while helping make THE MIDDLE WAY a 3-2-0 
turn.  And all eyes were on ANGELOST this turn as she ascended to the throne of 
Duelmaster.  XOCHITHLAN has a new victor!  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I 
hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Swinging Aardvark 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the DUCKS UNLIMITED 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on XOCHITHLAN, what are you afraid 
of?  And avoiding DUCKS UNLIMITED more than any other team we find BEDOUIN KNIGHTS.  
XOCHITHLAN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in XOCHITHLAN, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in XOCHITHLAN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Abdul The Vicious -- Or should that read Abdul the Slightly Intimidating? -- Hot Air

Habib The Slow -- Yeah, right, no lengthy recipes in your book. -- Duck A L'Orange

Soll I Tarry -- Still a long way to go for the proper cooking time. -- Peking Duck

Shifting Lion -- Hmm, not a bad hide, if a little thin.  Probably the season, hides
should be taken in the winter when the fur's thicker, of course.  But if the lion is
here now, now is when I will skin it, yes.  You're going to look great tossed
casually over the back of my couch. -- Ulrik Vorn

Point Zero -- I tried to make that quick, ma'am, for your sake.  Don't want any
scarring if it can be avoided, not on such a pretty little thing as you! -- Gib
P.S.  I really was not laughing at you.  I wouldn't do that.  If anybody was
laughing, it was either Myron or Ulrik.

Brey Kinenter -- Oh, my, a neutered cat?  That's what the Aruaki ARE, after all.
Well, cats.  Not many are neutered, of course.  Could you get that fixed, do you
think, or are you stuck with (or should that be without?) it?  At least you still
purr very well. -- Quia Rayne

Nela the Fierce -- Fierce indeed!  You humans seem prone to that.  Rather exciting in
a woman, too.  Within limits.  If you'd care to drop by my place--I don't live at the
guildhouse, I have a separate apartment near the aqueduct--we could explore the
possibilities. -- Zed Arlen

Miss Con Duck -- (smugly)  I'm right on your heels, Duckess. -- Myron Nagel

I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!
