     Uncle Wolf looked at the swirling knots of shamans, listened to the agitated and 
increasingly strident babble of argument, and shook his head.  "That's torn it," he 
     "But they must see that what Bluesnake has proposed is the same thing he told 
them you would do--that HE be the one to hold the Sword and decide on its use," Ghost 
Dancer protested.
     "Of course they don't see it!"  The speaker was Rain Caller of the Haimgedai, 
the oldest shaman present.  "Bluesnake is appealing to their emotions, not their 
minds.  If they have any minds," he added bitterly.  "It was like this before, when 
the Great Khan said he would make all the tribes great and lead them to trample 
Alastari under their horses' hooves.  Some tribes were completely destroyed in that 
war.  Many will never be so strong as they once were.  Where are the Tilvagedai 
today, or the Skaevalgedai?"
     "We cannot go back and change the past," Wolf said.  His tone was so sharp that 
Ghost Dancer wondered if that had been suggested to him at some point.  "We can only 
learn from it."
     Rain Caller glared at him from under snow-white brows.  "Easy to say, hard to 
do.  What is your plan?"
     Wolf turned to scan the whole assembly of shamans before speaking.  Then he 
shrugged.  "If I thought we could kill Bluesnake, here and now, I would attempt it.  
At this moment, he is a greater enemy to us than Volundagh and the Sword."
     "The others wouldn't stand for--" the old man began.
     "Which is why I'm not doing it."  Wolf glanced at the group around the Saarda 
again, and his lip curled into a sneer worthy of his totem animal.  "Did you think I 
held off out of fear of Bluesnake?"
     Rain Caller snorted.  "None think that who know what happened at the Buffalo 
Gate."  Then he sighed and added, "But many of the young men do NOT know of that."
     Wolf swept that away with a gesture and turned to his younger companion.  "Go 
find Redfox, Ghost Dancer.  Bring him to me here."
     Ghost Dancer went, but reluctantly.  He had never heard of a Buffalo Gate, and 
he had hoped that one or the other would tell that story.  How could he learn if such 
information was not passed along?

     Raigavor stared up at the wall and counted from the corner, "A turret, a turret, 
a downspout, a turret, two gargoyles, and... there!"  He stepped forward and tapped 
gently on a stone at shoulder level which differed from the ones around it only in a 
faint shadow-pattern that seemed to underlie the surface.
     No, Master Darque decided it was actually a fossil of something like a snail 
with tentacles, maybe two inches across.  There was a soft musical note, enough 
delayed that it didn't seem to belong to the tapping.  Raigavor tapped again, several 
taps with irregular spacing, probably a code.  The half-demon memorized it 
automatically; you never knew when you might need somebody else's identifying code.  
The wall shimmered next to the stone and became an archway.  Raigavor stepped 
through.  Darque hesitated--no telling what was beyond, and was he supposed to follow 
blindly?--then stepped through behind him, a bolt of power gathered and ready to 
launch at need.
     A woman was standing in the space beyond the wall.  A typical Shagornan elf, 
slender, moderately tall, haughty-featured, dark of skin and hair.  She frowned at 
Raigavor.  "I was not expecting you, wizard."  Her tone made it an accusation.
     The Red Wizard shrugged.  "I know.  I like it that way.  We've come to lend you 
a hand in your intrigues."
     Master Darque frowned.  Why should he aid this woman?  And he hated palace 
intrigue, unless it would increase HIS power.
     "Nothing more can be done without a master sigil," the woman snapped.
     Raigavor smiled, an expression that would have sent a normal human into 
screaming retreat.  "I am aware of that.  This gentleman possesses a master sigil.  
So if you have the assassins at hand--"  Raigavor paused and shook his head.  "I 
think you're unwise, Illayina.  Kill your King Feyn if you wish--no loss there, but 
leave King Feyen alive here.  The trouble that will be stirred up--"
     "The king of the two cities owes me a death," the woman said.  "FEYEN owes me a 
death for killing my sister-self, Illaina.  And the politics of Xochithlan and 
Kochilfan are not your concern.  Do not meddle."
     Raigavor looked at her in silence for several minutes, his lips pressed together 
in a hard line and a frown gathering.  "By killing Feyen," he said finally, "you will 
cause one of two things to happen--or both of them.  You will increase Feyn's 
personal power, or you will precipitate a disaster in both cities.  Or both.  I do 
not see how either outcome can further your own desire to rule Kochilfan."
     Darque watched the argument develop with the academic interest of a spectator at 
a sporting event.  From his studies he knew that certain parts of Alastari were 
"twinned" in an adjacent universe; clearly the sigil that he held in his mind had 
something to do with the linking of the two worlds.  Well and good.  It was not a 
common occurrence, but it did happen sometimes.  The woman's motives he understood 
completely:  revenge and a desire for power, though her ambition seemed curiously 
limited in scope.  Only one city?  And her disregard for the consequences of 
disturbing the linkage was short-sighted.  Too obsessed with her revenge, no doubt.
     Raigavor was less obvious.  He did not seem to want to rule the city--or any 
other that had been mentioned--himself.  Thinking it over, Darque decided that 
Raigavor had spent too long as a court wizard.  His motives were contaminated by that 
battle cry of good rulers and bane of ambitious magicians everywhere, "concern for 
the common weal."  That was good to know; it was a weakness in the wizard that could 
be exploited at need.  Good.  Sooner or later, Darque knew that he would part company 
and purposes with Raigavor, and he did not like the idea of leaving an unneutralized 
enemy behind him.
     "Don't MEDDLE, wizard!" the woman said.
     Raigavor sighed and shrugged.  "Do as you wish, then, Illayina.  There's no 
separating a fool from her folly."  He held up a hand to forestall another comment 
from her.  "Let us just get on with our business."

Only four teams left here in Xochitlan, which is a quacking shame.  The boss was not 
too pleased with the current flock of ducks we have here, and he was ready to simply 
graduate a couple of us and fold up the nest, but the last two additions are 
"interesting" to say the least, so for now, we will continue on.  If I can hold the 
throne, it will be interesting to see just how long I can stay here and continue to

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of XOCHITHLAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team LITERATI was 
unseated this week as CRIMINAL ELEMENT moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-1-0 record for the round.  MANN SLAUGHTER caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE FALLEN ONE and was awarded 24 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MATT RISIDE put down 
BEOWULF, causing him to lose 19 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail OUTLAW STAR, Duelmaster of 
XOCHITHLAN!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In XOCHITHLAN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  LITERATI is feared.  This much I can say.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding LITERATI.  Indeed it was DUCKS UNLIMITED.  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  MS D. MEENER take warning!  You have 
more than a few enemies in XOCHITHLAN.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

shed!  I hate it when I go out after the fights, just wanting to hop in the chariot 
and go home, and it's GONE. -- Opara Persi

                             HAMMER ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

     Be it known from the highest mountains to the darkest alleys of Alastari that
the veteran manager known far and wide as Hammer has now officially retired from
sponsoring contests as of September 15, 2005.
     What a long time ago was a fun motivated activity to help promote our common
DM/D2 gaming interest in an effort to promote the growth and competitiveness of
selected arenas has become a far from fun experience.
     In other words Hammer has had it!
     The combination of real life situations interfering with the time needed to
effectively sponsor a contest, plus the attitudes expressed during such sponsorship
interference has led to Hammer closing his personal coin coffers and retiring from
his planned sponsorship of any future contests.
     There are others in our close knit gaming community who are well able to step up
to the plate and continue sponsoring contests that make the basic game a fun
experience for all those who choose to compete and interact in such future endeavors.
     Hammer thanks all managers both active and inactive who helped to make the
Hammer sponsored contests a historical and entertaining experience well worth the
time, effort and money spent over the past several years.
     May the Cheers and the Jeers of future contests build upon the legacies of those
who have paved the way in years gone by to help make this game what it is today.
     Hammer has no regrets for the part he has played in that history.

I'd like to say hello to everyone I know that is still around after my being gone for
five years.  Hope to see you all on the sands, and may your weapons strike true and
your shields protect you (except, of course, against MY warriors *grin*)!! -- Lord

To those once of Willaf -- It's time to come back to the sands.  I'm back,
