     El Rippoff stomped around the main room of the Delvers' guildhouse, shrieking.
He--or it, since it was a neuter golem--was supposed to be packing to go to the Isle,
but no packing was getting done, unless the Lady in Black (who was staying in the
apartment attached to the back of the guildhouse but had been drawn to the main block
by the noise) was doing it.  She did appear to be doing something, but so quietly and
surreptitiously that anyone who noticed automatically looked away, embarrassed as
though he'd intruded on her privacy.  She had that effect on people.
     "After all my effort!" Rippoff screamed, "YEARS of effort--"
     "Thirty-six fights?" Sushee Su said skeptically.  "I make that no more than a
year and a half."
     "It FELT like years," the golem answered defensively.  "And I could have DIED,
you know!  I was taking a great risk!  And now it's all for NOTHING!"  It threw
itself down on the couch and went through the motions of sobbing, although no tears
were produced, the golem not having been designed for that.  "If I survived to
graduation, I was to become HUMAN.  I was to gain gender!  And now..." it made a
sweeping gesture, "Harby says there's 'nothing in the budget to cover it'."
     "If it's in your contract--" John Rose began.
     "We had a gentleman's agreement."
     The Lady in Black came over and laid her hand on the distraut golem's shoulder.
"You have been ill-used," she murmured.  "But I'm sure we can achieve redress.  It
won't be easy, of course, or inexpensive, but if you will agree to do one or two
little things for me, I'm sure I can find someone to give you what you have earned."

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
Sacrifice."
     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,
right?"
     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
stopped.
     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.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to RODEKI once again!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always 
change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, KING'S KREW's 4th moved them up 
to 3-1-0 place.  What's with GEORGE STARK?  He actually beat COLOR ME SUAVE's FUZZY 
BUZZCUT, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at 
HIGHER PURPOSE while they watched NIKIAS clobber HANDSOME IS.  He lost 12 points and 
got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the Duelmaster challenged 
DELVERS' JOHN ROSE?  That sort of initiative is how he got where he is now.  JOHN 
ROSE was reminded on the sands why STUPID SEXY FLANDERS is Duelmaster.  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, COLOR ME SUAVE!  In my day, no team with a 284-197-16 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, I'M SO SEXY?  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, SUSHEE SU!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.  1977 AMC MATADOR didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he received from 
ALARIC of HIGHER PURPOSE, who is 22 points below him.  ALARIC perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he was subdued by 1977 AMC MATADOR and ended up with 40 
recognition points.   
     Warriors of RODEKI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  BEN MEARS of 
KING'S KREW didn't know when to quit.  When you've got a 6-10-0, that's a good sign.  
Now he's dead.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
RODEKI is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Stupid Sexy Flanders -- You ARE stupid, and you're just RUBBING IT IN with your
"sexy" stuff.  In reality you're just a disgusting hairy Dwarf who doesn't even have
the grace to be shorter than me!  I hate you! -- El Rippoff

Bozo -- Truly amazing!  I am not accustomed, you know, to being the one who does all
the learning, although I certainly won't reject it!  Perhaps now that I have mastered
that skill, I can teach it to you on a new and acute level? -- John Rose

Starscream -- Yep, you're a deception, for sure!  When the arenamaster announced our
fight, I thought I was getting a chance at some Star's Cream, great stuff for tunnel-
rash, you know.  But nope, that was NOT what you turned out to be.  This is a clear
case of deception in advertising. -- The Mole

Fuzzy Buzzcut -- And you're a golem, too.  That's disgusting. -- Sushee Su

(striking a heroic pose)  The poor embezzler, fool and wimp that he is, was no match
for me. -- Handsome Is
P.S.  A total parry with no armor, and armed with a couple of daggers?  It is to
laugh.

17 July 2004
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!

The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
