     Fist of Kjarran rather liked being hailed as a hero in Korga.  It wasn't
something he'd expected, which made it even better.  Cadal explained to the people--
several times--that the hunter had not been destroyed, only driven off, and that the
road was still dangerous after dark, but the Korgans didn't seem to care.  They
fussed over Fist, cheered when he assured them that Aghtamar, herself a Korgan, had
been invaluable in the effort, and generally made a party out of the whole situation.
     Later that evening, when all the gladiators were so full of food they could
barely move (or didn't want to, at least), Fist drew Cadal aside.  "These people act
like all their troubles are over!" he worried.  "The hunter will still be out there,
maybe not right away, but he'll be back."
     "I know that," Cadal said, "and you know that, and more of the Korgans realize
it than you might think.  But there isn't anything else we can do about it without
help."  He smiled faintly.  "Even the kind of help you had is not exactly what we
need here.  It was enough for that night, but it was...."  He frowned, groping for
the right words, then shrugged.  "There was power enough, you understand, and the
will to help, but it wasn't really the best tool for the job."
     "What is the best tool, then?  If there is one at all."
     "I think there is a tool," Cadal said, "and I think the man who knows about it
is Lord Malcorn.  So in the morning we head for Malcorn, and we ask."


     Ghenis watched the ship _Relentless_ ease out into the channel and brushed his
hands together.  It was bound for Niatoli to further certain interests of the dark
cult.  On it was Veleks, and Cousin Og, who would look after the small thief...one
way or another.  Which freed him to attend to other matters.
     First of those other matters was a meeting with Pelishtekan, the Ferencian who
was currently the 'chief priest' of the cult.  Ghenis scowled to hide his grimace of
disgust.  He didn't like the Ferencian.  In fact, he loathed the man.  But it wasn't
necessary to like him, not really.  As long as Pelishtekan did his job, nothing else
     And right now, the man's job was to explain what manner of creature, monster, or
whatever was hunting over the lands just north of Zukal.  And how the damned thing
could be fought and destroyed.  It was in the way of certain plans that he had made
for the benefit of the dark cult...and of himself, of course.  The dark power did not
expect his minions to work for nothing but the joy of it.
     Ghenis left the waterfront behind and wove his way through the twisted and
noisome alleys of one of Zukal's poorest districts.  The cult always had its centers
among the homes of the poor.  They were the ones who had something to gain from it,
and nothing to lose, from shaking up the old order, after all.  Ghenis smiled just a
little.  He liked shaking things up.
     The cult was headquartered in a tall narrow building squeezed between other tall
narrow buildings.  The cellar, which was dark and always damp and divided into tiny
rooms no more than six feet square, was used for...storage.  More or less.  The
ground floor, reached by going down half a dozen steps from street level, was the
shrine itself.  The level above that was where the main work of the cult was done,
the plotting and planning, the gathering of information, the good stuff.  Above that,
two floors of small rooms where members of the cult lived if they couldn't do better
for themselves.  And on the top floor, the pigeons that carried messages from points
as distant as Zuwayza and Murska in the north, Rocanis, Xochithlan, and even Tricorus
in the south.  Most people had no idea how far the cult reached.
     Which was another source of amusement to Ghenis.  The authorities here in Zukal,
the very heart of the cult, had no idea that it was anything more than a handful of 
dissatisfied commoners meeting to worship some petty godling.  Ha!  If Bey Sekahos
knew how near he stood to the rim of disaster, how fast he was sliding down the slope
into hell--!  Even the Bandit Princes, who had a clearer understanding of their city,
didn't know that the cult was gaining power daily and would soon be ready to make its
move.  IF the monster north of the city could be dealt with.
     Ghenis pushed open the door of the old house and stepped toward Pelishtekan's
office, batting away the coil of incense that came up from the shrine below.  The
incense wasn't necessary, just window-dressing added to the cult worship by
Pelishtekan.  Ghenis didn't care for it.  Damned frills!  But it did seem to please
the lesser members, and of course it added to their "harmless crackpot" image.
     The Ferencian was waiting for him in the cult's office, simmering with
indignation.  As soon as the door was shut, he demanded, "What do you think you're
     Ghenis raised an eyebrow and smiled faintly, clearing off the other chair and
sitting down.  "Doing?  The cult's work, of course.  What did you think I was doing,
     "In sending Og and Veleks to Niatoli without consulting me, you were--"
     "--Doing as we agreed was necessary.  Niatoli can't be left out of our plans,
and we HAD agreed that we should send someone to lay the ground there."
     "And it was necessary to get Veleks out of the city before his fear broke the
nerve of other people.  Cousin Og will keep an eye on him."
     "If the thief's nerve is broken--"
     "He'll be fine on Niatoli.  The thing he fears doesn't seem to cross water
readily."  Ghenis leaned forward.  "Put aside your annoyance and listen to me,
Pelish.  The thing Veleks fears--let me tell you about it."  He launched into a
description of what he had seen north of Zukal, and of what Veleks had been able to
tell him.
     When Ghenis was through, the other man sat in silence for a long moment.  Then
he shook his head, seeming almost dazed.  "I had believed Alastari free of such
beings, unaccountable as that freedom had appeared.  I supposed it was the Grey
Witch's doing, that she had bound them long ago to keep them from interfering in her
plans.  Why would she loose them now?"
     "Who knows what the Witch would do?  But you do know what this monster--these
     "More or less," the Ferencian said, shrugging.  "They're remnants of the races
that inhabited Ghea before...whatever, the Old Gods or who knows what, started
meddling.  The ancient scrolls which I have seen in Ferencia speak of them as being
the rulers of the world when humans were still little more than beasts living in
caves and there were no elves or dwarves here at all."  He shrugged again.
"Unsupported myth, of course, but it does suggest that they are a very old race.
Frankly, if I'd thought of them at all, I would have supposed them destroyed here in
     "Destroyed in Alastari," Ghenis repeated.  "That implies that in other places--
such as Ferencia--they are not destroyed, and perhaps not even bound?"
     "They're BOUND, of course!"  Pelishtekan snapped, scandalized.  "Er...more or
less.  Differently in different places, of course.  But we couldn't leave them
     "I can see that," the gladiator agreed.  "So, we have these things loose here,
but they CAN be bound.  Okay, fine.  How do we do it?"
     The Ferencian blanched.  "WE don't do it, that is work for great wizards, high
priests, men of power--"
     "And no one in the cult has that amount of power?"  Scowling, Ghenis came to his
feet and leaned closer to the Ferencian, his hands braced on the desk between them.
He gathered up a fist-full of Pelishtekan's tunic.  "Are you telling me that the cult
doesn't have that kind of power?  That it's just a piddling little two-bit cult?"
     Pelishtekan paled further.  "No!  No, the cult has that power, but nobody HERE
can wield it!  And with the Arcanum so weak--"
     "The state of the Arcanum doesn't seem to be affecting the monsters," Ghenis
interrupted in a hard voice.  "Any dark god worth his worship should be able to take
care of a few monsters, Ferencian.  If I find that this is just a small time
operation for a small time demon after all, there will be HELL to pay, man, and I
will PERSONALLY see that you pay the first installment."

     Good day, in VEASTIAN a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as KORGAN CRUSADE is pushed out of top team by WIDOWMAKERS, who came from 
3rd with a 5-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, STILTZ fought PENICILLEN and gained 24 
points and contributed to THE FAMILY's 2-3-0.  PENICILLEN has lost to STILTZ, falling 
17 points, while helping make MEDS a 0-3-0 turn.  Defending his title for another 
turn, SWORDBREAKER kept THE FAMILY's warrior, NHAVARL, from claiming the throne.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Welcome Wench?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  In a brave attempt, PROTOMAS from 
WENSINWASIN challenged up 20 points to fight TIRO COCOCO from the THE FAMILY stable.  
PROTOMAS perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he lost to TIRO COCOCO and ended up 
with 3 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Whatever bright future NUNZIO THE APE may have had, it's all history 
now.  The manager of KORGAN CRUSADE has lost a promising 2-0-0 warrior.  Will 
CRUSADE?  One more turn, and the bloodfeud's over, at least officially.  Is it really 
true that VEASTIAN has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd 
     I like this place, VEASTIAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in VEASTIAN, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in VEASTIAN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Carline -- Well, OF COURSE fate hasn't been kind to me.  I'm an Ugly Witchmonkey, for
chrissake!  You think I like that?  Try again.  But just maybe my luck has turned
with that highly propitious arena number--maybe.... -- Ugly Witchmonkey

Lifetaker -- Not mine, if you please!  I've put in too much work to get where I am.
But good fortune attend you if you come up against some worthy-of-death foe. --

Fleshrender -- Look, I try to be a nice guy, okay?  I mean, as big as me, everybody
says "be nice," so I try.  But there is a limit, dammit.  And you pushed me past
mine.  So I had to hit you back.  It isn't like I wanted to hurt you, but cheese,
there's got to be give and take, right?  You were doing all the giving, so I figured
it was time for you to take some, that's all. -- Stiltz

Winter Witch -- I grant that you might have thought the season gave you an edge.
Maybe it did.  But the thing you've got to realize is that I HATE being cold, which
means I don't much like winter.  So when I found myself facing you, I just let it all
boil out.  (shrug)  But I wouldn't have ripped your face off. -- Carline

Prednizone -- That was almost a RELIEF.  I mean, there we were, going through the
fight reports: win, win, win.  I was getting this cold feeling on the back of my neck
that we might get a five-oh turn or something!  Can't have that, it raises
expectations that we are NOT in a position to meet.  So, now and then, a loss (IF
non-fatal) is a good thing.  Thanks--just this once. -- Tiro Cuckoo

Space Baboon -- That Cuckoo woman may prate about how GOOD her loss is, but that's
HER.  I see your wretched win as a TRICK, a FOUL TRICK. -- Tiro Cococo
P.S.  It was all your style advantage, anyway.

Let it be known far and wide, that the Warrior TUM 18-7380, the Champions Runner-Up
for the recent Tournament, is managed by none other than Shocking Toad.  I named this
fabulous warrior after my friend and mentor, TUM, a.k.a. Don!  Sorry TUM didn't get
me my first TC; however, a runner-up with all those sandbaggers is pretty impressive,
if I do say so myself. -- Shocking Toad, The Manager

All -- This is to announce that I am no longer a member of the Vendetta Cartel
Alliance.  I have enjoyed my time there, and I've made some great friends.  Their
company will be missed, but they will endure.  I wish them well. -- Apex
