Aruak City:

     If Segallion and Nila were under the control of the spell or spellcaster who had
seized her mirror, then they had to be stopped.  Without needless injury--they had
not chosen to do Khaldren's will, after all.  But her own mind, though free from
outside control, was weary and slow.  She was fumbling as badly with her spells as
Segallion was with his sword.  There wasn't going to be TIME for her stop him gently.
A word of Command formed on her lips.
     The warrior staggered into her so that they both fell in a tangle of flailing
limbs.  And his sword struck the blood-faced mirror, splitting the frame and
shattering the glass.
     The glass exploded away from the mirror stand, bloody shards flying outward on a
wave of sound so shrill as to be barely audible.  If Adie, Segallion, and Nila had
not all been on the floor, they might have been badly injured, even killed.  Was it
chance that they were all below the deadly glass?  Adie thought not.  They were each
worshippers of the sun in their different ways, and she suspected the hand of the god
in their survival.
     Rolling away from Segallion, Adie sat up, brushing at her hair and her robe
absently.  When the mirror broke, she had felt a shadow lifting; that was the first
she had known that there was a level to the enemy spell below the obvious.  She
shivered.  She hadn't even suspected that deeper spell, and it could have done...
anything, it had taken her so completely by surprise.  But she would not be surprised
a second time.

On the road from Ardivent:

     "Health, humility, and honor will not solve all problems," Master Cho said
flatly.  He had rejected the idea of hiring a horse and was making surprisingly good
time for an elderly-looking man on foot.  "You know that as well as I do, Fandil!
Sometimes you need cunning, as well, and a willingness to take losses."
     "I know that."  Fandil the Wise sounded testy, and in truth he was very
irritated.  On the most immediate level, by Cho's present attitude and by the ease
with which the Adantri kept up with Fandil's horse.  "But young Adeolar is not a loss
I'm prepared to accept."
     "Of course not, or why would we be rushing toward Aruak City instead of sitting
at home with beer?"  Cho squinted at the forest on their right.  There was a bad
feeling to it today.  Most of the land that lay between the environs of Ardivent and
the beginning of the Aruaki lands was forested.  Despite the hunger for agricultural
land in Andoria, no one had made an attempt to clear this forest and put the land
under the plow.  Nobody offered reasons, it was just "not done."  It didn't take a
master of the subtle arts to figure it out, though.
     The forest was haunted.
     Through a sweep of land twenty miles wide stretching from near Lyratilan to near
Mordant, the forest concealed a scattering of ruins.  Not the Van ruins of northern
Andoria, or not entirely--who could know for sure at this late date?  The ancient
city of Celestinvael was the best known in modern times, but there were other things
hidden by those dark and tangled trees.  Maybe worse things.  Things that might be
wakened by the same spell that was stirring Celestinvael.
     It was not a situation to make an old man sleep soundly at night.
     "I just hope we're in TIME to help Adeolar," Cho muttered.
     "She's strong and skilled," Fandil protested.  "Our fears may be completely
     "So you'll back Adeolar's young strength and skill against Khaldren's ages of
experience and cunning?  I hope you're right, because at our best pace," he glanced
scornfully at Fandil's horse, "and with no problems, it'll take us two more days to
get to Aruak City."


     Shania Silverstar did her best to be patient, but it seemed to be taking Ashon
Chang so LONG to negotiate with the ship captain!  She glanced around at her
companions, wondering if she could have organized her resources better for this
frantic rush back to Alastari.  No, probably not.
     Vurand and Jammies were keeping both eyes on Herlas; the Fratsfan mage hadn't
given them any trouble...yet, but he might.  He would, when he thought he had a
chance to win.  Werre was organizing their luggage and supplies (desperately slim
now) as fast as they were off-loaded from the mules.  Zakar...she didn't know what
Zakar was doing, and she wasn't sure she wanted to.  He was on their side, more or
less, but...today had seemed to be a "less" day.  And Rughal was at her side,
supporting her as weariness ate at her bones.
     Ashon Chang was gesturing them forward to the ship.  Before Shania could gather
her strength to walk, Rughal lifted her and carried her down the dock.  "It is
agreed," Ashon Chang said.  "This man, Kaldinar, will sail us across the Trier to

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ARDIVENT.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
VALLEY-JO, who pummelled KHORNE SHADOWSPAWN, to pocket 18 points.  KHORNE SHADOWSPAWN 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to VALLEY-JO and losing 
13 points in the process!  Can you believe it?  SILVER FURY apparently has better 
things to do as ARDIVENT's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  Now I can't insult 
BOBBI, as she has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me 
if I lay it on too thick) So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last 
week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
CYNICAL DELUSIONS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As 
a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of DEATHTONGUE, so did that sorry team 
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure 
of writing Spyreports for ARDIVENT?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Berke -- Now that was a good fight, you still hit hard when it counts, lucky I snuck
a few more in there this time, different strategy. -- Silver Fury

Well because of the slow mail system, someone else will have the honours next turn,
sorry I couldn't stay, but I will see who's in next and put my challenge in good
luck. -- SFury

Solaris -- I hit hard but need more hits that count to beat you.  Maybe soon. --

Palanthisaaaa and so on -- Bashers should be sticking together, so many fast styles
out there, that may do us in.  TP's look out. -- Rusted Soul

Virgil -- I couldn't help that challenge.  I had to do it now before you get that
master of attack and beat me good. -- Break Point

Valley-Jo -- I had you but this hot chick in the stands distracted me, so not fair,
let's do this again some time. -- Eclipse

Sorry to have written no personals last time.  The occurrence of the Face to Face,
though I don't go to it, always disrupts my schedule.  We'll try to make it up to
you, though. -- Leeta, Bluvalley Warriors

Eclipse -- Boy, are you ever a delusion!  I went to attach something to my lightning
pigeon the other day, and it simply would NOT stay on.  Talk about a delusion, those
e-clips were the worst! -- Valley Jo

Big Dave Diode -- A golem, hmm?  I suppose that explains the sparks that kept
flashing back and forth across your, er, face or whatever you'd call that.  Top front
surface?  Spooky, but I bet it would be REALLY interesting at night. -- Flint Hills
P.S.  That's not a hint.

Khorne Shadowspawn -- And the sooner you go back to the shadows that spawned you, the
happier I for one will be. -- Bernina Collin

Reagan -- Given that you're a golem, I should think you'd avoid bathtubs.  Of course,
I'm a golem, too, and very clean besides, but then, I'm not a lightning golem.  I'm
just your basic... Gneiss Guy

I don't think that constable was trying to be FRIENDLY, I think he was just plain
pushy, and I don't like that in a man.  I mean, what part of "no" is hard to
understand?  So I, you know, slapped him. -- Debra Collin

Poised to Kill -- I'll make a note of that: next time, use the zigzag stitch. --
Bernina Collin, always willing to oblige, within limits

Berke -- Congratulations on getting your invitation to the Isle. -- the Bluvalley

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!

The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
