Not in Zuwayza:

     The change from the sunlit courtyard to the shuttered interior of the house was
abrupt and extreme enough to blind Tankesh temporarily.  He blinked impatiently,
trying to clear his vision, and blundered after the old man as soon as he could see
vague outlines.  Furniture seemed to leap out and bite him in the shins.  When his
eyes finally adjusted to the shadowed interior of the building, he saw that he was in
a long hallway with arches opening off both sides.  The old man was just disappearing
through one half way down on the left.  Tankesh hurried after him.
     The room was bare and dark, lit only by a single candle, although the
whitewashed walls made it seem brighter than it actually was.  The old man was
kneeling on the floor, which was of tile, white tile with black and red and gold ones
inlaid in a series of concentric circles.  It looked too much like a target for
Tankesh's comfort; he supposed that was just his imagination.  He hoped that's all it
was.  He squinted at the symbols the old man was drawing in some of the rings, but
they meant nothing to him.  Well, he didn't expect they would.  Adie would probably
recognize them, though.  Could he remember enough detail to describe them to here
when he got back?
     The old man stood up cautiously, one hand on the small of his back.  He pointed
with his stick of chalk to a spot in one of the outer rings.  "Stand there, young
man, and ask no questions.  Pay attention and watch for the proper place to get off.
This is simple, but not easy."
     The elf stood where he had been directed and watched the old man take his place
in the center of the circle.  "Proper place to get off?"
     "When the rim of the circle passes through your world," the old man said.
Sliding his sleeves back on arms like withered sticks, he began to chant.
     It was, or it felt like, several minutes before he saw the arch to the hallway
pass in front of him and realized that the circle was rotating.  He glanced down, but
there seemed to be no change in the tiles under his feet.  Back up, as a corner of
the room slid by, quickly followed by the next one.  Definitely rotating, and picking
up speed, too.  "When the rim of the circle passes through my world," he muttered.
"How will I know that, unless there happen to be landmarks in sight?"
     The old man didn't answer.  Tankesh hadn't really expected him to.  The walls
blurred and vanished, to be replaced by a seascape with waves breaking on a beach of
white sand and on rocks farther out.  A wave sliding inward at the end of its course
dampened the toe of one boot.  Pleasant looking, but nothing familiar.  Another blur.
A forest of standing stones lit by bluish light from two moons, both near full, and a
smell of fresh-spilled blood.  A blur.  A true forest, trees like columns reaching
into a green darkness overhead, mist, and a smell of things growing and dying.  It
called to something in his elven heritage, but it was not where he needed to be.  A
blur that seemed to last longer than the others, there was a hesitation and a pulsing
red light half way through it.  Something they weren't going to stop for.  Just as
well, that light looked like it might be fire.  A large vaulted chamber, the image
wavering slightly and indistinct at any distance from his apparent location.  Voices
speaking akhadic.  He tried to step out of the circle, but it was like moving through
cold tar.  The view began to blur, and he forced himself outward, throwing himself to
the floor outside the circle in a dive.
     It seemed to take forever to fall, his motion slowed to the point where he
wasn't even sure he was moving at all.  And then there was a sort of soundless click,
and the floor came up fast and hard, knocking the breath out of him as he hit and

Old Joe, indeed.  It seems we get to share a ride to the Isle.  Congrats, old timer!
At least they didn't have to dig your grave up and make you fight again!  I won't
miss the place too much, since immortality at this point is quite sweet.

Defence & Decise.  They say I like the Epee, but I've not tried it.  I'm going to try
to smack Humorous Whim about before I leave.  Fare thee well!


                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ARDIVENT.  Like, HARDTIMESINBABYLON had to 
be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by DEATHTONGUE!  Way to go 
DEATHTONGUE!  Talk about hot teams!  THE DISC goes out, the very first time, and goes 
4-1-0!  Like, what do you guys eat for breakfast?  MVP award for CMOT DIBBLER?  THE 
DISC's proud of him after beating FLINT HILLS and getting 33 points.  Talk about yer 
big time losers!  BULMA got smashed by PURPLE SASH, and lost 11 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  BINKLY stopped CHI-CHI dead in hers tracks!  I 
hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want 
photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of DEATHTONGUE must 
be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that 
I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why CLEVER LINGO's been avoiding DEATHTONGUE 
so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is OL' JOE COLLIN popular, or 
what?  He was challenged the most in all of ARDIVENT!  He's got a 20-42-1, is that 
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Geez, forgot personals again.  Maybe it'll be easier when all of my basic teams
reside here.  I've got a new team joining the mix.  The Disc, straight from the Gen
Con tourney.  They should start up this turn.  Please try to welcome them! --

Humorous Whim -- So, how many fights do you sandbag, and how many do you fight
normal? -- Banana Jr

Yamcha -- I'm not sure what a yamcha is, but it's NOT fun. -- Opurt

Bulma -- Sounds like an intestinal disease or sumthin'. -- Dodger

Chi-Chi -- You again?  At least I'm popular now! -- Veers

Ah, team Bluevally, an unfortunate incident.  Perhaps restitution may be made? --
Purple Sash

Binkly -- Amazing.  I lose to you, learning nothing, and graduate?  If I'd known it
was that simple, I'd've graduated LONG ago! -- Ol' Joe
P.S.  I'm a measly ol' 10-10-16-15-15-9-9, naturally adept with the scimitar, for
which I lack the deftness, moderate/moderate, and I like the bash tactic?  Wait a
minute, it says right here I'm a wall of steel with a scimitar, why do I use the BASH
tactic?  This is crazy!

The Horned One -- I didn't think you were allowed to use your horns in the arena.
Ouch. -- Vanice

Purple Sash -- Haven't we met before...often? -- Marli Blubell
P.S.  I feel that in killing me, you were going Too Far.

The beggar wasn't REALLY polite, that's okay, I was going to hit him anyway.  'Cause
I'm a... Gneiss Guy

So my aim is rotten, is that any reason for the stupid Constable to threaten me with
a parking ticket?  I wasn't parked, I had my engine running. -- Bernina Collin

One warrior dead per turn for the last three?  We don't like that.  We hate
recruiting.  Try not to kill our warriors for a while now, okay? -- Leeta and Master
Cho, Bluvalley Warriors

19 August 2003
     Citizens of Ghea (only the ignorant fail to note Lirith Kai is not in Alastari),
no new day is rising, but the sun is setting on just another beautiful evening.
While you were sleeping, an irksome rabble has entered the always fair Aruak City.
Of course they fought alongside our warriors, most not so treasured, as all
gladiators do.  They drank with themselves, and slept with themselves.  Whether they
had masks, who cares.
     Warriors, don't be afraid.  For years Aruak has been one of the safest cities in
Ghea, and that custom has been continually cultivated, and will continue to be by
those who have called it home for years and those who live, fight, and die by the
same ethics.  There is no contest, nor has there ever needed to be one for many
years.  A conflict of personalities has arisen, and the city has been 'invaded' by
     Any rules that are annouced will be purely for the joy of the lemmings' own
little world.  Those who are being targeted have no interest in participating except
to defend the integrity of an arena that is different from others.  Whether you
choose to come to Aruak, do it for your own reasons, not theirs.
    Competing in Aruak City has never been for the faint of heart or the weak willed.
Combat is combat, wherever you go.  Blood will flow as always, and now many innocents
will be caught in the middle, but those who defend Aruak's traditions never target
those who bring respect of Aruaki customs with them to our home.
    So ignore the private ranting announcement brought by the stuporous
Frothingsloshers.  If you choose Aruak City, do not choose it for an unsanctioned and
bogus 'contest', choose it for the tradition.  Choose it because Aruak is different.
