The Isle of the Eye:

     Four steps into the woods and they couldn't see the clearing and the cart, or
hear even the distant murmuring of voices.  It wasn't that the undegrowth was heavy,
it was just... as though there was a barrier of some kind which they had just
crossed.  And it was hotter in here under the trees, with the air absolutely
motionless.  Even to speak here seemed like it would be an offense.
     Whispering, Gissanniah said, "We should go back.  Closer to the edge, where we
can still see out."
     Senator Sedalia considered arguing, good, solid arguments such as that they
didn't want to risk someone seeing in and spotting them.  He shook his head.
Gissanniah was right, the risk of getting lost here was worse.  He looked down.  His
feet were pressed into the leaf mold under the trees, and would leave visible
footprints.  Starting here.  There were no other visible footprints marking their
entry into the woods.  "Which way is back?"

Halfway between Seam and Tarrgir:

     Lenpro looked at Fandil and raised an eyebrow in question.
     Fandil shook his head.  "I've no idea what's going on here.  I can't think of
any reason for a... a guard post on this road.  It isn't a border."
     Lenpro considered that and shook his head.  "It is, though.  The border between
the Clanholds and Convincia must run right along here."
     "Not an external border," Fandil insisted.  "There's no reason to patrol an
     "Let's ask them."  Lenpro nodded at the soldiers standing in the road ahead.
"In fact, we'd better go up to them before they decide our hesitation here is
suspicious!"  He nudged his horse with a heel, walking it forward.
     The soldiers formed up to make it clear that no one was to pass without their
approval, and an officer stepped out in front of them to meet the travelers.
     Fandil nodded politely to them all and said, "Good day.  What's afoot here?"
     "We've orders to turn back any Aruaki who try to leave the Clanhold territory,"
the officer said.  He was firm, but not belligerent.  For him, clearly, it was just a
case of doing his job.
     "Why?" Lenpro asked.
     The officer shrugged.  "I am not privy to policy.  All I have are the orders."
     "How do you tell for sure that someone is or is not Aruaki?" Fandil asked,
looking around for a magician.
     "We have been provided with a device."  The officer's tone was a little sour,
now.  He gestured at a framework of three poles, two vertical with the third uniting
the upper ends.  It was about the size of a normal doorway.  "If you pass through
that without setting off the alarm, then you have no Aruaki blood and are free to go 
on into Convincia."
     "Doesn't that seem a little unfair?" Fandil asked.
     "No.  It seems like a very clear order from my superior officer.  I have been
told the Aruaki are still carrying the plague of shape-changing," he added, "and the
gods know how much damage they did among normal people when they Changed and went
     Fandil opened his mouth to argue further, but Lenpro stopped him.  "This man has
his orders and must obey them," the Iayean manager pointed out.  Our quarrel, if we
have one--there's a lot of point in that business of the plague, you know--our
quarrel must be with those who established the policy and issued the orders."
     "I don't like it," Fandil growled.  "But you're right."  He sighed, nodded an
apology to the soldier, and dismounted to walk through the test-doorway.

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ZENSU once again!  Biff!  Pow!  ZENSU watched with glee as 
BEYOND THE PALE got knocked off top spot by MEDAL OF HONOR G1!  What's with GRUNT 5?  
He actually beat ZENSU's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 13 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at MEDAL OF HONOR G1.  DA1 lost 7 points to CADDIS DEANE.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe DA1 will provide more easy wins...  See how the 
Duelmaster challenged BEYOND THE PALE's CHUCK ELVIS?  That sort of initiative is how 
he got where he is now.  CHUCK ELVIS was reminded on the sands why LON CHANEY JR. is 
Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
GUARDIANS II.  In my day, no team with a 42-63-4 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, MEN OF 1,000 FACES?  What do people see in PARTICLE MAN?  His 13-11-1?  
NEUROMANCERS ain't talkin', but he's got 77 points.  PARTICLE MAN didn't quite know 
what to make of a challenge he received from BELA LUGOSI of MEN OF 1,000 FACES, who 
is 25 points below him.  BELA LUGOSI perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he beat 
PARTICLE MAN and ended up with 99 recognition points.   
     Warriors of ZENSU unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some advice: 
study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Lon Chaney Jr. -- Gods, there were so many faces out on the sands, I didn't know
which one to hit!  I dunno if that was your mysterious art, or those blows to the
head, but let's avoid doing that again, okay? -- Chuck Elvis
P.S.  In return for which courtesy, I will show you where to get the best fried
banana sandwiches in Zensu.

Tahkasis -- A cuddly little beautiful blonde!  I'm a sucker for women like that.  Let
me take you away from all this. -- Caddis Deane

Particle Man -- An old familiar opponent.  I salute you on this, our last meeting. --
Edla Mainz, intent on retirement

Norm the Gnome -- No way I'm getting a bathtub with somebody that hairy.  There's no
telling who might be under the shrubbery, after all.  A dwarven beard can hide a
multitude of fugitives. -- Daceana Linz

Lady Tiff -- Ah...stunted, no doubt?  It's the only way I can think of for a Shew to
be that short.  And naturally it would make you irrascible.  But, listen, it wasn't
ME that did whatever to you. -- Terilee Linz

Our congratulations to the long-departed Triumph, Tourney Champion in the Freshman
class. -- Jorja and Beyond the Pale
P.S.  He must've been sitting around doing nothing much to be a freshman with that id
number.  Slacker!

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
