     Larkin here, with a report from the Winter Tourney.  Okay, maybe this isn't
Atlantis, but it's somewhere warm, and if that isn't a beach, at least it's sand,
and, as advertised, there are drinks with umbrellas in them.  And young women with a
lot of suntan showing.  By the time you read this, the tourney will be over, but
while I'm writing it, the tourney is NOT over.  And a lot of you guys reading this
won't have been able to go, anyway.
     I'm interviewing Zalgor Prigg, one of the managers participating in the Old
Valamantis Bloodgames, and let me tell you, Old Valamantis is not a place you want to
hang around if you don't have to.  It's rotten with magic, to begin with--Folstrom
magic, the blackest there is--and then it's got all this blood and violence on top of
it, and it makes for a dark and scary venue.  Anything might rise out of the ruins
around the arena, summoned by the blood and the curses of the managers.
     "Mr. Prigg, could you tell us why you--"
     "It was the play on words," the manager said, overriding the question.  "I
couldn't resist--the chance to call a Bloodgames team Phoenix, you know, the 'rising
from the ashes of death' business.  Of course, then I had to change it to Phonetix,
but that's okay, keep people guessing."
     "I've heard the Commission mages talking about that name, sir, and they seem
alarmed.  One of them said the name was practically a spell in itself, used here."
     "I heard.  That's why I had to change it."
     "Have you considered what might actually rise from the ashes and blood here as a
result?"
     "Well, no, but that isn't my business, you know.  I manage gladiators.  Let the
mages worry about what pops in from some other dimension.  Besides, what if nothing
happens?"
     "But, sir, there have already been reports of zombie rats and tentacled monsters
lurking in the backs of the locker rooms!  And someone is bound to consider that you
have a partial responsibility--"
     "No," Prigg said, "I have no responsibility for that kind of thing.  I'm no
magician, I haven't been reading forbidden tomes...."  He paused, looking thoughtful.
"Maybe it was TigToad with his Obscure Lore...."
     "I don't believe there's a team of that name in this Bloodgames--"
     "No, not here.  Earlier, in Veastian.  He could have been, hmm, preparing for
this, opening contacts if not gates, stuff like that.  Has anybody seen any Dark
Toads around?"
     "Not until they've had six drinks with umbrellas in them.  Tell me, sir, have
you given any thought to the moral implications of the Bloodgames?"
     "What moral implications?" the manager asked.  "This isn't about morals, it's
about survival.  And the way to survive on the sands is to kill your opponents every
chance you get!"
     "Yes, but--"
     "There's a reason they don't hold these contests up in Andoria," the manager
said sternly.  "Good people in their ways, the Andorians, but they just aren't cut
out for this kind of grim business."  He paused to listen to the roar of the crowds
jamming the ancient arena.  Checked the marquee where slaves dangled from ropes and
updated the records of participants.  Nodded, grimly satisfied.  "Another death.
That's good--can't have too many survivors, or it cheapens the victory at the end."
     "But the death toll--"
     "Bah!  Don't get the idea that these gladiators are the flower of Alastarian
youth.  The ones who enter the Bloodgames are the men with no hope.  We offer them a
future they could never have dreamed of, but they have to work for it, sweat for it,
bleed for it, and sometimes die for it.  The survivors..." he bared his teeth in a
grin that would not have looked out of place on a wolf, "they owe us EVERYTHING, and
they'll do anything to repay us."
     "But--"
     "And besides," Zalgor Prigg went on, "if you really want to take up the moral
question, go talk to the Grey Wand.  She's the one set this up, after all."
     "I don't see the point, frankly.  She's got plenty of Lord Protectors, and they
have longer training, skills polished and honed to a--"
     "The Bloodgames victors, they're Her enforcers," Prigg said.  "No polish, sure,
but when a dirty job needs doing, one of these guys will do it, and no questions
asked."

       + ]H[ + ---:--- + ]H[ Report from the Tourney #2 ]H[ + ---:--- + ]H[ +

     Larkin here once again, with more interviews from the tourney.  This time I'm
talking to a new manager, so new he doesn't even have a manager name.  "Sir... what
would you like me to call you, by the way?"
     "Why do you have to call me anything?  I don't understand why you want to
interview me.  There are lots of great managers here who could probably tell you
stuff--"
     "I'm looking for a new perspective, the point of view of someone who is just
starting out with the gladiatorial games."
     "Oh.  Well, I guess that would be me."
     "Absolutely right!  Tell me, what do you think of the tourney?  This is your
first, right?"
     "Right, my first," the young man agreed.  "And it's GREAT!  Everyone is just
great here!  I mean, most of these managers, they're, like, legends, you know?
Everybody's heard of them, and they have stables of HUNDREDS of gladiators, and
they've been polishing their tricks for YEARS, and I didn't figure I had much of a
chance, you know?"
     "The popular view is that no matter how much you know, the arena can always
throw a surprise at you--"
     "Yeah, yeah, I've heard that.  I don't know if I believe it, but I've heard it.
But that isn't the best thing about this tourney.  The best thing is that everyone
here has been GREAT.  Or else I didn't meet them--the ones that might not have been.
But I think I met just about everyone, and--"
     "And they were great.  I'm glad.  But perhaps you could tell our readers a
little more, maybe tell them how these experienced managers were great to you?"
     "Well, yeah, okay.  It's that everyone was so friendly and helpful, see?  The
ENTIRE Consortium talked to me about warrior design, for instance.  I learned a lot
there.  And, well, there was Mannequin, and The Greek Guy, and I actually met
Manager, too!  And they were all really helpful.  Advice, you know, and charts, and
all that stuff that was so confusing.  It was just the best experience!  I'm going to
do it again, for sure!"

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon STORMCROWE, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for JOSIE WALES, who pummelled 
GR8SPED, to pocket 19 points.  RIKKU certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, 
after losing to 2L82HIT and losing 12 points in the process!  Well, Duelmaster PAYNE 
challenged NORTHERN LIGHTS' DAN MACK GRU.  Is a 11-5-2 good enough?  DAN MACK GRU 
found out that STORMCROWE isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in STORMCROWE is taking speech lessons to try 
to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
ASAIRE are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The warriors 
of ASAIRE found their efforts at combat frustrated as DARQUE FORCES apparently had 
more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, RIKKU is the most challenged warrior. 
Mismatched by 9 points, GELIDNIA HALE was overcame by ROSELYN.  Is this really worth 
noting?  I thought ROSELYN showed great skill and promise when she beat GELIDNIA 
HALE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
STORMCROWE would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for STORMCROWE?  On 
that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Jorja -- My most sincere apologies for the down challenges that are sure to come in
the next few turns.  There is no one else among us in the top ranks, so I cannot
challenge (up or down) different people.  I know you don't take it personally and
will probably not give it a second thought, but I felt the need to express my
regret. -- Master Darque
P.S.  I will write personals as a sign of my contriteness.

     This is good!

Walrus -- I do apologize for that challenge.  I know that we fought last turn (and
perhaps again this turn) but it was necessary.  MD was a bit upset that I beat you
the previous turn and you were still higher than me in the recognition rankings.  The
Commission officer tried to explain it to him, but before he could finish MD turned
him into an earwig or something to that effect. -- Yumalesca

Phat Phat -- Sorry about that!  Payne gets a little hot-headed and blood-thirsty on
the sands.  I figured one of them would eventually bite the blade and go down in a
slash of gory death, but I just figured it would always be Payne.  I'm not even sure
you are paying attention, but my condolences all the same. -- Master Darque

Axman -- I don't have much to say.  The fight was short and sweet, as many are at our
level of play.  Better luck in the future. -- Rikku

Gelidnia Hale -- Bored yet?  Just wait till next turn... -- Roselyn

Frostbite -- What?  You went down to Khalums Dwarf???  I am shocked. -- Master Darque

All -- 40% of the fights last turn ended with a death.  Even more interesting is that
there was only 1 Dark Arena fight. -- Master Darque

Yumalesca -- Just out of curiosity, what is so dark about you? -- Walrus
P.S.  Aside from your disinclination to lose or teach.

Roselyn -- I think there should probably be a rule against people so tall as you
fighting short people like me.  Talk about an unfair advantage! -- Gelidnia Hale
