Valamantis:

     Ka D'Argo looked at his crew of "explorers" and shrugged.  They were a motley
bunch, drawn from several teams, managers, and arenas, people he'd found passing
through Valamantis on their way from one place to another.  Mostly from the arenas
where they were fighting--most of them were still in Basic--to some holiday spot for
a week's recreation.  Most people assumed that gladiators always stayed home,
practicing relentlessly, but that was the way to dull your edge, not improve it.  He
glanced at Arenamistress Sitalva, but she shook her head slightly.  It was his show,
apparently.
     He took a breath and began.  "You see the towers of Old Valamantis, raised by
blood sorcery."
     Everyone turned to look.
     Smeds of The Black Company, Mordant, sniffed dismissively.  "Second class
stonework," he declared.  The Dwarf's gesture took in needle-thin towers webbed
together with bridges like dreams.  "Not really stonework at all; that's built with
magic.  Was built with magic in the beginning."
     "Stupid," agreed Shamu (The Watchmen, Cliffhome).  The two Dwarves nodded at
each other.  "Unreliable.  Not like good honest stones that stay up whether you're
paying attention to them or not."
     Goblin (The Taken, Kaltos) frowned at the no-longer-ruined city.  "You mean
somebody's got to pay attention to that all the time, or it falls down?" he asked in
a voice like gravel grinding together.
     "Not EXACTLY," murmured Lavender Lance (Colour Guards, Illis).  Quickly, before
the two Dwarves could protest, she added, "In principle, yes, quite possibly.  But
nothing is EVER that simple.  What I've heard--I'm no mage, but there's always talk
of magic on Illis, you understand--is that a spell can be put into a THING, like,
well...like the sound is in a bell, maybe.  Or like the light is in a candle.  Under
the right circumstances, it comes out without anybody having to think about it right
THEN, and it keeps on existing as long as the circumstances last.  I suppose I'm
explaining that very BADLY, but--"
     "But we follow it well enough," Sputter (Joka Masher, Dwes Eg, Lord Protector)
finished.  "So there might be a THING that we could break and the towers would fall
down, hmm?"
     "Bringing the towers down again might be a good thing," Ka D'Argos interjected,
"but it won't solve the problem here, even if we could find the right spell-holders
to destroy.  That won't get rid of the people."
     "Zombies," Groblin growled contemptuously.
     "Not entirely," Sitalva said.  "We haven't gone into the old city, but we've
watched it closely, and there are some people who don't appear to be undead."
     "How can you tell?" Smeds demanded.  "Just because somebody's not falling apart
doesn't mean he isn't a NEW zombie."
     "There are live and potent Folstrom wizards in the old city," a new voice said.
The pleasant tenor seemed to come out of empty air but was quickly followed by a man
in a dark blue robe spangled with silver stars, his hair bound back from his youthful
face by a silver band.  He bowed slightly.  "Tensekai," he introduced himself, "known 
here as the Silver Mage.  Bringing down the towers without first destroying the
Folstrom would be futile, a waste of energy.  And not easy, either, as the spells
that uphold the towers are well guarded.  The important thing is that this situation,
unnatural and abominable as it is, gives us a chance to undo a great error out of the
past.  We can destroy the Folstrom this time, rather than merely driving them off."
     "Correct me if I'm wrong," Lavender Lance murmured, batting her eyelashes at the
mage, "but I HAVE read a little history.  I thought the Folstrom weren't destroyed
because it wasn't possible?  They were too strong for the Forces of Good to bring
them down completely."
     Tensekai nodded unhappily.  "That's true.  But we've had three millennia to
study further.  We have new arts and new allies to bring to the battle this time."
     "And what might the Folstrom have learned in three thousand years?" Ka D'Argos
asked.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, that strategy was pretty much a bust.  I'll take the win, but that isn't the 
way I'd hoped it would go.  Looks like my act is on the chopping block, though.  
Maybe I can convince Assur to release my contract, though.  Surely someone would pick 
it up.  I'm bonused and I've got a lot of skills (108 or 109 according to Assur).  
But he says that even if I fight like a basher, I'm not the real thing and so 
retirement is coming my way.  I guess I better make these last few count! -- Yankee 
Dan

notes from Assur
An interesting warrior is this Yankee Dan.  With 5 Experts and an Advanced Expert 
rating, it makes it difficult to decide what kind of strategy to use.  I think I let 
fate decide Dan's opponent this turn, but I'm not positive.  I may have challenged 
Gate Witch.  I just don't remember (nor do I care all that much).  Yankee Dan is just 
here so I am not running a 1 man team.  If Ronald McDonald lived through the tourney, 
he'll be around part time, taking Dan's place when he is prepping for the next 
tourney.

Sorry Flagg, but the other two clowns are not even on my radar and will never see the 
light of day under my management.  After I get Dan's invite, I will be challenging 
one of Harby's PR's.  I'm sick of them and the losses they've given my warriors.  5 
of Dan's losses are to PR's, though one of those was Suave's PR.  Maybe with faves I 
can finally get a win.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
RODEKI.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  It 
looks like the guys(?) at FLAGG'S FIVE had a good week as they went 4-1-0 to put them 
in 3rd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for NEON NECROBOOKIE, 
who flew up 31 points in the rankings after mashing GOLDEN BOY OF BASS like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was FUZZY 
BUZZCUT, who dropped 9 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with EL 
RIPPOFF.  It's a proud day for the DELVERS stable, as their warrior, ANN ARTICHOKE, 
ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to 
deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the RODEKI arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad FLAGG'S FIVE?  Big bad FLAGG'S FIVE.  Big 
bad FLAGG'S FIVE.  RODEKI's afraid of the big bad FLAGG'S FIVE.  Tra la la la la!  
For those of you who like math, try this one:  FLAGG'S FIVE + Weapons That go Boom = 
MEMPHIS MAFIA + Avoid City.  And who is this BOZO you ask, with 61 points and a 
11-16-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Well, it looks like RIGHT-WING PIMP 
wasn't happy with last turn's rank, so he went for broke by challenging up 26 points. 
No guts, no glory.  Trading many whacks on the head and a loss for 3 recognition 
points, RIGHT-WING PIMP shows that a guy doesn't have to be good to get places.  Was 
it guts or an overtaxed mental capacity that had J.T. MONEY$$ challenge up 26 points 
in the rankings to take on CRIX BREMOORE?  This week J.T. MONEY$$ 1-3-0 fought CRIX 
BREMOORE 5-2-1 and in losing gained 1 points.  I know several gladiators who could go 
for a few fights like that.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  The audience likes blood and there was 
plenty of it covering GOLDEN BOY OF BASS as he was driven to an early grave by NEON 
NECROBOOKIE of the MEMPHIS MAFIA.  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  HAIRLIP BOMBSHELL 
II:  THE REMATCH.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Virtuous Vixen -- I may have made a career error, but at least I won my last fight. -
- Ben Mears

Limpy Two Screws -- Dammit, I sould have ducked!! -- George Stark

John Rose -- You aren't bad enough for me!  Maybe I can grab another win from Sushee 
Su! -- Bozo

Bookie -- I've got a team in Jhans, but fat chance it'll be run anytime soon.  They 
are far down the list of warriors I want to run.  You want Jhans to be right behind 
Talcama?  Shouldn't you set your sights to have Jhans be better than Talcama?  Not 
that I want to see that happen, but it seems like if  you're gonna dream, dream high!  
I've found that I rarely EXCEED my goals or dreams. -- Assurnasirbanipal

Bookie -- Skills are over-rated.  Though I seem to have a knack for giving them to 
others. -- Bozo

Harby -- I'm feeling a little anxious around here.  I've heard through the grapevine 
there may be a contract out for me.  I will lay low this turn and report on what I've 
found next cycle. -- Flagg

Yankee Dan -- Well, that was about as slow as I could go without making myself a 
target and you see what happened! Still it's nice to know my parry is better than 
yours! -- Gate Witch #2, the humbled

Bookie -- Sorry for the extreme DC last turn.  I've had the feeling that you've been 
trying to get my attention, so I was just trying to show that you had it! -- Flagg
P.S.  It's not my normal policy to down challenge like that.  My personal style is to 
always up challenge... just seems like going against the grain, trying to show that

     Has anyone seen it in print that the "Goat" is leaving the "Cartel"?  There were
some diplos to the effect of a special branch of the Cartel being formed, like secret
societies, governmental agencies and alliances certain agendas are developed.  To
obtain the desired effect of any agenda only key personnel can be used.  The "Goat"
is "Cartel" so until you see it with me announcing that I am not Cartel, remember,
"The Agenda of the Core is for you to fight for."  I hope this stops the confusion.
