A log cabin near North Fork:

     Captain Zarthynes glanced at Galbadan and almost laughed.  The Shew was
scowling, probably as deeply as he himself had been a moment ago.  The two of them
had been appointed, by Emir Kyreses of Veastian and the ruling council of North Fork,
to be joint commanders of this first mission against the Black Kaliv, and Zarthynes
could see that the Shew liked this partnership no more than he did.  Which actually
made the whole thing seem more manageable.  He could work with a man whose attitude
he understood.  Even if the man was a Shew.
     Zarthynes smiled, a little stiffly, perhaps, but it was a smile, and extended
his hand.  "We can make this work, if we do it together," he said in his careful
Harkanar.  That was the trade dialect used by the Harkene tribes of the area, and he
figured the Shew would know it.  Of course, it was quite likely that Galbadan spoke
Akkadic, as well, but given the current relations between Shews and Karnhorns, that
might be less than tactful.
     Galbadan maintained his scowl for a few seconds, and then his mouth twitched a
little.  He reached out and grasped the Karnhorn's hand.  "Aye, we can.  Nothing like
a common enemy, eh?"  He relaxed and leaned back on his bench.  "What men do you
bring?  I've half a dozen scouts, my own men, and a few gladiators from Murska."
     "A few gladiators," Zarthynes said, "and a small boat...ship, whatever, with a
crew that knows the coast from Amen-Tei to Snowbound.  Emir Kyreses regards this as
primarily a scouting mission, with a heavier expedition to follow when we have more
     "Sensible," the Shew agreed, nodding.  "But they do say that Kyreses is a
sensible man...for a Karnhorn."  He raised his hand to forestall Zarthynes' response.
"Nay, that was unworthy of me.  For now, we're allies."
     Zarthynes took a deep breath, then nodded himself.  "I must remember that, too,"
he muttered.  Seeing the Shew's questioning look, he added, "Some of the gladiators
in my group are...Andorians."  He took another deep breath.  "An ally in time of need
is a true ally.  You know the land between here and Kurukar better than I do, I am
sure.  What would you suggest as the best way to begin?"
     The Shew frowned at the far wall of the cabin, then got up and crossed to the
window.  By the fact that he didn't have to duck his head--he was well over seven
feet tall--Zarthynes knew that this cabin had been built for Shews.  "I hadn't
thought of having a boat in this," Galbadan muttered.  "Not our kind of thing, boats.
But it might be useful...."  He shrugged.  "I don't know how best to work the boat
in.  My suggestion would be to go north through the woods--stay away from the main
road and maybe all the others as well.  Get close to Kurukar and then see what
happens, what openings we find."  He glanced over his shoulder  "I know those woods,
you see.  My scouts know them really well.  But boats...."  He shook his head.  "What
do Shews know of boats?"
     "I will admit that I am not a sailor myself.  Through the woods...yes, that
sounds best," the Karnhorn agreed.  "And the boat can follow along as we move north,
maybe keep watch on the fleet the Black Kaliv sent down to blockade us.  Because if
those ships were to land men to cut off our advance--"
     "Don't want that," the Shew agreed.  He went to the door of the cabin.  "Let's

Near Barikala:

     The Golden Moon, Lady Protector Artemisia commanding, was approaching the Urt
Delta from the northeast as the day drew to a close.  Her goal was Zukal, but as soon
as the ship came within sight of land, she would anchor and wait for daylight.  The
maze of channels and islands that formed the delta was not something to attempt at
night.  At least, not now.  A decade ago there had been an intricate network of
beacons that a skilled and familiar pilot could use to reach the city's docks at any
hour, but the invasion from the East had put an end to that.  The defenders had
destroyed the beacons to hamper their foes, and the triumphant invaders of Zukal had
neither the knowledge or desire to restore the system.
     Artemisia's lip curled.  The Easterners called the people of Alastari
barbarians, because many of their cultures were young.  But if the 'civilized' old
cultures of the East didn't--or couldn't--restore safe shipping, who was the true
     The lookout shouted that land was in sight, and Artemisia turned to squint into
the setting sun.  But she was lower than the man on the mast and couldn't see the
dark line of the shore yet.  With a shrug, she turned to look the other way,
searching the sky for a warning of the sudden storms that had given this great lake
its name.  That horizon was clear, also.  She didn't quite trust it, but...the sky
was clear and the wind was steady.  Good enough, for now.
     When she turned to the west again, she could see land herself, the long, dark
hump of Barikala Island, silhouetted against the crimson sky.  The sun vanished from
sight, and its light was replaced by the broad, slightly greenish beam that shot
straight upward from the center of Barikala.  Around her, the sailors moved to place
the ship in a safe position and run out the anchors for the night; her first officer
needed no instructions to handle that.
     That beam of light over Barikala was also new since the invasion, and Artemisia
wished her friend Beag Magda were here.  The Elf understood such things.  Or at least
knew how to think about them, because nobody understood just what that blazing beacon
was...other than dangerous.  No one who had landed on Barikala in the last few years
had returned from there to tell what they'd seen.
     The lookout called down something else that she couldn't hear over the bustling
sounds of sails being lowered and anchor chains creaking off their drums.  One of the
sailors halfway down the mast below him shouted up, got an answer, and came hurrying
     "Koro says there's something coming out through the delta," the sailor reported.
"He isn't sure what, the light's about gone, but it might be a group of canoes.  They
aren't in a main channel, anyway."
     Artemisia glanced to the side.  Her first officer was there, as he should be.
"We may have an attack coming up," she said quietly.
     He nodded and moved off to make sure the crew was ready.
     Artemisia tapped her fingers on the hilt of her cutlass, reviewing
possibilities, then shrugged.  It was useless to speculate without more information,
and dangerous to formulate plans under such circumstances.  She would have to wait
upon events.


     Ghenis glared down into the alley where the last of the soldiers were marching
past.  Nothing had happened.  The dark god he had believed he served had not
responded.  The Ferencian was lying to them all.  But somewhere, he knew, there was
such a dark demongod, and he vowed to find it.  And the Ferencian liar would be the
first sacrifice....
     He withdrew carefully from the roof above the alley.  It would be a good idea to
get out of Zukal for a while.  Out from under that liar Pelishtekan's eye, so that he
could think and lay his plans in relative safety.  Niatoli Island, that's where he
would go.  The false cult already had a 'mission' there, and Cousin Og would be his,
Ghenis's, first recruit.

The Isle of the Eye:

     Beag Magda sat at a small table near the back of the Two Lilies and swirled the
last of the tea in her cup moodily.  She had no fault to find with the Lilies, they
knew her here and always gave her the same table.  And the tea, as usual, was
excellent.  Something was wrong somewhere, but it was less definite--and more
important--than a problem with the service, or a mediocre cup of tea.  She was almost
afraid to look into her cup.
     That was nonsense.  It was only the unknown that should be feared, and once she
read the tea leaves, the problem would not be unknown.  Well, it would not be
completely unknown, but tea leaves were a very imprecise method of diagnosis and
prognostication.  With a little shake, she threw off the dark mood, emptied the last
swallow of tea into the saucer, and peered into the cup at the leaves clinging to its
bottom and sides.
     She could feel the hair trying to rise on the back of her neck.  The leaves
seemed to be swimming in a web of shadows.  The patterns they formed all indicated as
plainly as tea leaves could that something very dark was impending.  But nothing was
clear.  Who was menaced, and by what?  How soon?
     Beag Magda set the cup down very carefully, because her hand was trying to
shake, and laid coins beside it to pay for the tea.  She needed more information, and
she couldn't get it here.


     Lord Protector Ipecac stalked ashore and glared around for someone to share his
outrage.  Anyone who recognized him in time--and Stormcrowe was a small island with a
limited population who generally DID recognize one another--departed hastily.  Lady
Protector Snowfall wasn't quite fast enough.  "Do you know what HAPPENED?" Ipecac
     Looking distinctly queasy, Snowfall shook her head.
     "My ship was ATTACKED," the warrior from Emetics snapped.  He didn't notice when
the shapely woman flinched from his vehemence; people were always doing that around
him.  He stalked closer, dropping his voice for privacy.  "Monsters," he hissed.
"Demons out of the waves.  Half shark, half man, you might say.  Others like kraken.
They were summoned by a dark wizard on a black ship.  We have to do something about
     Snowfall swallowed a couple of times, then said, "Why?  And how?"
     Ipecac raised his eyebrows.  "You want to live on nothing but fish caught in the
harbor?" he asked.  "They could blockade us!  And what if they decide to come ashore
and attack us here on the island?"  He frowned thoughtfully.  "Probably it's part of
some Karnhorn plot, and if we don't nip it in the bud, they'll be all over us,
murdering and enslaving.  Can't have that."
     "No," Snowfall agreed faintly, "we can't have that.  But how do we stop them?"
     "We fight, of course!"  He hesitated, perhaps realizing that such a plan was
lacking in useful details.  "All the ships will have to be armed with...catapults,"
he suggested.  "And...none of them going out alone.  Yes.  And we need to find any
wizards on the island and recruit them to help fight, and more importantly to find
out what we're up against.  That's a beginning."  He nodded firmly.  "We need to
start right away!"
     Snowfall turned quickly to the rail at the edge of the dock and fed the fish her
lunch, then straightened.  "Yes, I can see that.  Wizards, catapults, convoys.  No
time to waste...."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The main reason I came to Ghea was they have some of the best bananas of any
planet I know.  And who has access to more bananas than a Duelmaster, I reasoned?
     If word of the place ever gets back, expect a lot more visitors from my
homeworld, Planet of the Baboons.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome VEASTIAN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  MEDS were a 
bunch of dogs after THE FAMILY got through with 'em!  4th ain't so sweet as 1st!  THE 
FAMILY showed VEASTIAN what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk 
off with 4-1-0.  What's with THE NAUGHTY POPE?  He actually beat MEDS' NORPRAMINE, 
and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at MEDS.  
NORPRAMINE lost 14 points to THE NAUGHTY POPE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe 
NORPRAMINE will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure VEASTIAN is excited about FACE 
BREAKER, the new Duelmaster from WIDOWMAKERS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as 
many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being the most challenged warrior, FLESHRENDER!  Don't make idle boasts, 
they may come back to haunt you.  Maybe WOLF RIDERS' CUTTER is one of those guys who 
likes pain, or something.  That's what he'll get next week, after challenging up 29 
to PREDNIZONE.  I don't get it.  CUTTER goes and challenges PREDNIZONE, way above 
him, but gets 1 points after he loses!  Is this a new strategy?   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  NORPRAMINE larned hers lesson (THE NAUGHTY POPE 
taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any KORGAN CRUSADE 
members with the same gusto.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger 
every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
VEASTIAN 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

     Mongo, aka Matt McIntosh and ex-Warden of the Dark Circle, is auctioning off his
entire collection of Duelmasters warriors and stables.  Don't miss out on this chance
to own some fantastic warriors!  There are ADM warriors available in every class from
Primus to Freshmen, as well as over a dozen Basic stables.
     Does a Slasher with +4 attack, +4 decisiveness, +3 initiative and +2 riposte
sound good?  How about a Lunger who received the benefit of a TC prize, has TVed
three times after graduating--and still hasn't maxed out his skills!?  How about a
Striker in the Freshmen class who has decisiveness for a favorite learn and the MAUL
for a favorite weapon!?
     Or perhaps you prefer playing in Basic.  Then how does a stable with four Adept
class warriors who have a combined record of 41-19-9 sound?  Or maybe a stable with
three 21-Will warriors?  Or perhaps a stable with four Initiates and a Rookie who
have a combined record of 23-6-1?
     The quality of the lots is excellent.  All you need to view and bid on the lots
is go to:
     If you want to be on the mailing list to receive regular updates on the auction,
just send an e-mail to JVMerlino@aol.com. Merlin, aka John Merlino and also an ex-
Warden of the Dark Circle, will be running this auction for me.  I just moved to New
Orleans and am likely currently stumbling around the French Quarter...because it's
Mardi Gras!  So I have named my auction in honor of this occasion.
     The auction will start on Saturday, March 13th, 2004, and will continue for
several weeks.  But you should get your bids in early if you want your best chance at
owning any of these fantastic warriors and stables.
     Many thanks to all for your interest and your bids,

Style Masters Symposium
Hosted by Hammer

     The years have slipped by and many DM Managers have come and gone since the last
Hammer's Handbook was compiled and printed.
     There is now a stirring within me to begin writing and editing yet another
Handbook with a distribution date sometime in 2005.
     This Handbook will be made available via Email with a possibility of burning the
info to a CD for distribution.
     Special arrangements will be made to provide the information via printed page to
those contributors who are serving sentences behind bars.
     The working title of this new Handbook is "Style Masters Symposium Hosted by
     Distribution of this Handbook is projected to be MAINLY for those DM Managers
who contribute information/articles to Hammer by June 2004.

St. Valentine's Day Massacre Update

     We are pleased to announce that the kLk sponsored St. Valentine's Day Massacre
kill contest in DM 36 is off to a great start.  We are also pleased to announce that
in addition to the 10 team rollups we are also able to offer the renaming of a dark
arena warrior as a prize to the manager with the most kills.  The contest is only 2
turns old and is still wide open.  There are currently 5 managers tied with one kill
each.  Anything can still happen so hurry up and get into the arena.
     On a personal note, no other alliances have entered the arena in force to
challenge the kLk dominance.  We were expecting The Firm to put up a fight for their
supposed home arena.  But, they were a no show.  Guess they proved what they are
really made of.  *evil grin*
     Perhaps another alliance would like to step in to give us a challenge.  We are
throwing down the gauntlet.  Perhaps the Chaos Inc. boys I keep hearing about would
like to step in and challenge the kLk for arena dominance.  If you don't show up,
Chaos, don't feel bad.  FAR better managers than you have been invited into Jhans but
have chosen to pass on the offer.
     So if you consider yourself worthy to compete, like fierce competition, and
enjoy arenas where the personals are as fierce as the fighting, come visit JHANS DM
36.  We're already planning our next contest, "Capture the Flag," and have a
storyline being actively worked on in the arena.  Whatever you like about DM you can
find it in JHANS.
