                                THE KARNHORN ENQUIRER

     Greetings, my fellow servants.  Hope all is well with you all.  Things are
getting better in Zuwayza.  There are now 8 teams.  Only one unchartered team, so
there's plenty of opportunity for new teams.  Adara Al Zahra of the Jaguar Warriors
defended her DM title against Voo Doo of Unkowns XII.  The fight was a horrifying 26
minutes long.  I fell asleep a couple of times during the fight.  Adara won the fight
and looks like she'll be DM for awhile.  If Voo Doo can't beat her, it doesn't look
like anybody else can.  If you haven't started a team in Zuwayza, what are you
waiting for?  If you do go to Zuwayza, drop by my House of Pleasure for a visit.  I
think you'll enjoy yourself.

     One final note before I go.  Four out of the five Karnhorn DMs are managed by
Noachian.  The DMs in Willaf, Zuwayza, Jurine and Veastian are all Noachian's.
Something for you all to aim for.  That's all for now.  Later.

Riztab:

     "There was something out there," Tillouisa whispered, squinting into the moonlit
distance.  "I SAW it moving across the water."
     "Somebody night-fishing in a rowboat," Song of Summer said in a normal voice.
"Everything isn't monsters, Til."
     "Ha!  That just shows how much YOU know."  Tillouisa abandoned her whisper and
scowled at her teammate triumphantly.  "I've SEEN monsters, Summer.  I know what I'm
talking about.  There are ALWAYS monsters around water--"
     "In the Shagornan Desert, maybe, but--"
     "Everywhere!  Water's tricky, Summer.  You can't TRUST it," the Rirorni woman
stated positively.
     Before Song of Summer could reply to that, a cry floated to them from the dark
lake.  Not a human cry, nor the call of any nightbird that either woman had heard
before.  There was a little of the wolf howling in it, but what wolf would be in the
middle of miles of water?  And even the howl of a wolf did not chill the blood quite
so effectively.
     After a moment, Song of Summer swallowed twice and said, "It might not be a
monster even so."  She didn't sound like she believed that.  "It might be...just some
strange creature out there."
     There was another cry from the lake, this time all too human, shrill with terror
and despair.  Splashes accompanied it.
     "I guess there was a night-fisherman out there, after all," Tillouisa noted.
     "You don't have to sound so cheerful about it!  That poor man probably died
horribly."
     "He would've heard the rumors of monsters same as we did," Tillouisa said,
shrugging.  "If he chose to risk the lake anyway, well, what did he expect?"  She
turned away from the waterfront.
     "I don't suppose there's anything we could do to help him?"
     "I don't suppose so.  He's probably dead by now.  Come on."  Tillouisa grabbed
her teammate's arm and started towing her back up the sloping street.
     "Where are we going?"
     "Around this block of buildings.  They're all collapsed, and we couldn't get
through them.  I want to check out the old records building now while the monster's
out on the lake."
     "Til!  You're INSANE!  We don't know there's only ONE monster."
     "We can find out, then."

Malcorn:

     "It looks like somebody laid a plate, or a shield, or, I dunno, a cartwheel or
something on the field," Blacklock said doubtfully.
     "If plates, shields, or cartwheels came twenty feet across, yes, it surely
does," Birdsong agreed.
     Blacklock moved to study the circle of flattened grain--which was to have been
cut today--from another angle.  Not that there was anything different to see.
Perfectly circular, perfectly flat.  "It'd be hard to cut grain that's been trampled
down like that, wouldn't it?"
     "Yeah, really hard--like impossible, and that's a lot of grain.  It isn't like
we've got so much to spare, you know."  Birdsong knelt and touched the smashed
stalks, drawing her hand back quickly.  "They're frozen!"
     "A twenty-foot cartwheel of ice?" Blacklock speculated doubtfully.  "Well,
anyway, it's too bad, but it happened.  What caused it, and what do we do about it?"
     "I don't know to both, but I think..." Birdsong stood and frowned at the ruined
grain.  "I think we tell Lord Malcorn."
     "Oh, SH-- uh, shoot!  You think he's been dabbling in magic and did this?"
     "Of course not!  Lord Malcorn isn't careless or destructive," Birdsong stated
positively.  "But he'll know what to do."
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     Lord Malcorn, Blackie in more informal situations, was staring at another circle
of smashed crops.  Hay, this time, and a couple of rabbits who had been so unlucky as
to be inside the circle when disaster fell.  He knew, in a general sense, what had
caused it--when he had loosed the Dregur from the Silent Place, other things had
escaped also.  From the Silent Place, and from other restraints elsewhere.  He didn't
know exactly which "other things" had caused this, but he was sure that the ultimate
blame attached to him.  That was the trouble with taking drastic measures to counter
drastic problems.  You never knew what secondary effects might occur.  Or what kind
of measures would be required to deal with the secondary problems, and what tertiary
problems might arise from THAT.  He could spend the rest of his life cleaning up
after the results of releasing the Dregur....  But then, he could have spent the rest
of his life cleaning up after the invaders, too.
     He sighed and turned to the farmer.  "Keep your livestock and your workers out
of the fields," he directed.  "There may be more of these, and it will require a
complicated bit of work to put a stop to it."

Warriors and managers of the Free Cities, your participation in these events is

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, here I am and here I go.  The Convicted Assassin wasn't much of a challenge but
he got me the DM title and an invite to ADM.  I suppose you'd all like to know my
numbers.  They are 13-13(+1)-5-17-17-9-11.  I leave with an ADEX in initiative, EXs
in attack, parry and defense.  My favorite weapon is the longsword.  Favorite rhythm,
very high offensive and very high activity.  And I learned parry skills well.  Wow,
things went my way from the beginning.  My only regret is that I never got the chance
to kill Sungod Designed Me.  And whatever happened to that mule, Jenny.  Did she
sneak away again?  The next Duelmaster should be Nhavarl.  Good luck and don't
disappoint us.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
VEASTIAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, MEDS, since KORGAN 
CRUSADE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see TIRO CUCKOO win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, WINTER WITCH beat PREDNIZONE and PREDNIZONE lost 11 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, HEMERA 
AHKISAR has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as SILVER BELLE takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood 
today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
VEASTIAN?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
WIDOWMAKERS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team. 
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like WENSINWASIN avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, NHAVARL was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to SILVER BELLE of 
WENSINWASIN for challenging up by 25 to NHAVARL.  SILVER BELLE won to get 94 points 
of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in VEASTIAN to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of VEASTIAN.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

Face Breaker -- By Shierah, I won AGAIN.  This is amazing.  It can't last, but I'm
going to enjoy the heck out of it while it does. -- Nhavarl

Ribsplitter -- It wasn't that funny, buster brown. -- Tiro Cococo

Space Baboon -- I couldn't lose to a MONKEY.  I have SOME pride, you know. -- Carline

Prednizone -- I hope the drug-testing in the Infirmary doesn't get me into trouble on
this one. -- Stiltz

Who is responsible for letting these Dangerous Criminals run around loose?  Who, I
ask you, who? -- Tiro Cuckoo

     Society? -- Ed.

Sungod Designed Me -- A heartfelt congratulations and bon voyage.  Your numbers are
excellent, but it is the spirit with which you fought that carried you through to
graduation.  I won't say I'll miss you, since I've already missed you several times.
But I wish you well. -- Nhavarl

Daphne -- Well, I WOULD have kept it up, but I just happened to notice this woman in
the stands wearing a truly RAVISHING hat, and I was trying to see how it was made. --
Carline

Lifetaker -- This is a strange arena--all my best warriors get killed--while
nonentities like Flying Marmoset rise to the Duelmastership.  Swampy was a frail
fellow--so I feared this would happen one day.  But I hoped it wouldn't. -- Jack
Wolfspider

All -- Numerology fans, how's this?  My ID is 4343 in Arena 43.  That portends
something?! -- Ugly Witchmonkey
