Krael:

     An explosion could not have been more disruptive of the activity in the plaza.
There were several work-parties engaged in clearing it, and the magicians commanding
them immediately began directing their laborers against the newly arrived Lord
Protector.  And no matter how good a fighter a Lord Protector may be, he cannot hold
out forever against overwhelming numbers.  Not with them coming from all directions.
     "We have to help him!" Fandil said.  He spun his magician's staff as a warrior
might spin a quarterstaff, and the end traced a wheel of flame in the air.  With a
word of command, he released the flames.  The wheel flew toward the struggle.
     Adie spoke, and shafts of sunlight flashed outward from the center of the wheel
like scythes.
     The first of the Kraelian magicians it encountered screamed and threw up his arm
to shield his eyes.  He staggered blindly across the plaza, still screaming and still
covering his face, and fell over the line of broken stones that marked an ancient
wall.  The laborers he had been controlling stood numbly.  When the expanding rim of
fire and light passed them, they fell silently.  Those who were Aruaki by blood began
to take their feline shapes, but slowly.
     Cho touched her lightly on her shoulder.  "You could do no otherwise, Lady, and
your clean sunlight may yet bring them recovery."
     "I know," she said, wiping at the tears on her face.  "I wish..." she sighed and
shook her head, following the burning wheel's progress.  "At least we can hope to
prevent any others from being taken by these...fiends."
     As the wheel neared the gladiator Eclipse, he flung up his shield.  A flash and
a crack of thunder.  The wheel turned, deflected; it was only a circle of fire now.
The sunlight had been...absorbed by the dark barrier of his shield; it was Adie's
turn to stagger at this unexpected interruption of the power moving through her.  A
tiger who had once been Aruaki lurched to its feet, jumped through the burning hoop
and ran across the plaza and into the fringe of buildings that separated Krael from
the peninsula.
     Steel rang behind them.  Adie risked a glance over her shoulder.  Cho was
engaging two swordsmen.  They were bigger than he was, younger than he was...and
utterly over-matched by the old Adantri.  The tip of his blade was beginning to trace
bright lines in the air--bright lines and sprays of scarlet blood, because he was
doing more than drawing a web with it.  Adie jerked her gaze away before she could be
trapped by that glittering pattern.  It was a spell of some kind, but she didn't need
to know more.  Not right now, anyway.
     More sunlight, that's what she needed, but NOT to send anywhere near the warrior
named Eclipse.  She reached for the light and realized that it was...dimmer.
Clouded, somehow, as though it had to come through a dirty window.  But it was
sunlight, and she needed.  Now.  The Kraelian mages had recovered their focus and
were taking steps.  Sending ALL the workers toward the three intruding mages and the
lone gladiator.  What did that make the odds, twenty to one?  Thirty to one?  More?
And these laborers were not the guilty ones.
     Cho cut down the first to reach them.
     "No!" Adie said.  "They're innocent, tools, you can't punish the tools for--"
     "Precisely tools," Fandil said grimly.  "Look at them, look one in the eye,
Adie.  They have lost soul and self, they are no more people than a hammer is."  His
staff was spinning again, lashing out, sweeping and thrusting.  It was a weapon now,
and not a magician's tool; there was no time to set up a proper spell.
     "Zombies, of a sort," Cho said, his sword darting and flashing.  "There are
worse fates for these than death, and no better ones."
     "I know," Adie said.  "But I don't like it."  Still, there were things she could
do; a priestess of the sun didn't have to establish a formal spell structure.  She
could direct the power of the sun--what there was at this time and place--as a
gardener direct water with a hose.  And Fandil and Cho were right.  The Kraelians had
sucked the last humanity out of their slaves when they sent them to fight.  If you
could call this stumbling wave of bodies a fight.
     She went back to back with her companions as the wave curled around them.  Okay,
it was a fight.  And with something filtering out the strongest rays of the sun, it
was a hard fight.  She couldn't see the gladiator any longer and hoped he had found a
defensive position.

     He was looking for one.
     Dropping out of that deserted Country of the Mimes into this was a shock.  He
didn't know where he was, but people were making noise, so it wasn't Mime-Land.  And
they were attacking him, which was the pits but not something he couldn't handle.
Provided he could find a wall or something to put his back against, because the odds
were...not good.  True, the attackers were fighting dumb.  Just ordinary tools,
shovels, crowbars, that kind of thing, instead of weapons, no armor, no indication
that any of them were trained to fight.  But the numbers would overwhelm him even so,
if he didn't get his back to a wall.
     There were walls around, broken but sufficient for his needs.  On all sides, so
which way to go?  As he pondered this, his blade darted in and out, slashed and
hacked and stabbed, and he smashed his dark shield into arms and faces and bodies.
He could see, through temporary breaks in the crush of bodies around him, another
cluster of battle at the edge of this open space, on the down-slope side.  Try to
join them, or go another way?
     The up-slope edge of the plaza was closer, and he really needed something at his
back.
     He began to edge upward.

     Lady Protector Stepharoo sat on a bench with her back against the main cabin of
the ferry.  She sipped from a bottle of Marvelous Elixir and tried to make sense out
of what had happened.
     "I was on the Ardivent Peninsula," she said.  "And there was a Black Tower,
something to do with the Tarot Mimes.  So me and Eclipse--another Lord Protector from
Ardivent--went do something about that.  And we were in the Tarot Mime world, and we
had to split up, and then... I was here.  I don't know what happened, and I don't
know where Eclipse is, and I don't LIKE this.  We were a TEAM."
     The alchemist patted one of her hands, and the politician patted the other, and
they both made soothing noises.
     "Maybe your friend got brought back to Ghea, too," the other woman, Gissanniah,
suggested.  "How far apart were you?  Maybe he's that far away here?"
     Stepharoo looked out over the lake, suddenly alarmed.  "He could drown!"
     "He could be, I don't know, in Point, maybe, just as likely as out in the lake,"
Gissanniah countered.
     Steph considered this.  "The distance might be about right," she admitted, "but
I have no idea at ALL about directions."  She looked east, toward the mainland that
was rapidly getting nearer.  "I suppose that's a place to start looking."

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Dr Steinburger continues to balk at writing his required DM Column.  He
has much to learn in the area of Humility, although there do seem to be small
advances daily.  With that in mind, I shall help him out this round.
     So you wonder what the Fandils looked like at birth?  Look no further.
ST -  9, 10, 10, 10, 13
CN -  4,  9, 10, 13, 17
SZ - 10, 10, 13, 16, 17
WT -  7, 14, 15, 15, 15
WL -  9, 10, 15, 16, 17
SP -  5,  6, 11, 16, 16
DF -  7, 10, 10, 14, 21
Now that is a collection that SHOULD understand HUMILITY!
          Fandil The Wise

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARDIVENT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, CYNICAL DELUSIONS.  But how many friends do you have now?  Ya gotta 
be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
FANDILS is now ranked 1st with a 3-1-1 turn.  What's with HAMMER?  He actually beat 
INFERNAL LORDS' BROQUS, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at INFERNAL LORDS.  BROQUS lost 11 points to HAMMER.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe BROQUS will provide more easy wins...  SPARROW-BLASTER was reminded 
on the sands why DR STEINBURGER is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live 
subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, CYNICAL DELUSIONS!  
The bums at FANDILS couldn't face the challenges from CYNICAL DELUSIONS!  No excuse 
for that!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  BECKER COLLIN, with his forgettable 14-32-1,  was killed by 
MARY CATHERINE in a forgettable match.  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS didn't seem to mind very 
much.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Lady Adie -- It was pleasant to finally see your ads.  Glad to see you do your
"personal" duty. -- Fandil The Wise

Rhythm Wizard -- I was never good at that dancing stuff.  Why, I was the first voted
off "Dancing With The Stars". -- Juanita

Stepharoo, Senator Sedalia, Old Doc Circ, Fandil The Wise--PLUS Eclipse, Adie, Cho,
and Gissanniah all in the same spot!?  The Scribes have been busy! -- The Consortium
Elders

Galoot -- Jeez!  You were too enduring.  Note:  I DID NOT say endearing. -- Davy
Privette

Glaver -- I was apparently quite "on" this day.  I did myself proud, luck and all. --
Mary Catherine

DeGotti -- There is only one Dwayne The Dog.  (Even though he sometimes goes by
Rageman, Manager, Manalger, Managerr, etc.)  Surprisingly, he teamed with our weird
Creepster in the last TOGS and they almost pulled it off. -- The Consortium Elders

Zellit -- All right!  Maybe there is something worthwhile in me after all. -- Earl

Becker Collin -- That was no easy win for the title.  You put up a battle worthy of a
Duelmaster. -- Dr. Steinburger

That WAS Dr. Steinberger speaking, wasn't it? -- WOF

Adie -- Responding to one of your on-line questions, it is true that TigToad is no
longer competing.  You saw Jon Snow (TC ripper) running under the protectorship of
The Consortium flag. -- WOF

Jhezra -- Thanks for the match, hope we can battle longer next time. -- Sparrow
Blaster

Mary Catherine -- Well I stand in awe, you're definitely much more skilled then I.
Till next time, maybe during a title match. -- Glaver

Davy -- I'm sure that the next match will indeed be different.  A more different
strategy that is.  I had to slow your advance a bit and give everyone a chance to
catch you. -- Galoot

Annette T -- Ouch, quit jabbing me, your skill level is growing quickly, I'm hoping
it won't pass mine anytime soon. -- Quar-Ral

I apologize for not defending my title but a bad bad Andorian Flu caught me off
guard, it was a pleasure fighting in this arena, good luck to all. -- Break Point

Dr. Steinburger -- Congrats on another win as Duelmaster. -- Adie

Sparrow-Blaster -- Good challenge and win. -- Jhezra

Hey, WAIT A MINUTE!  Since when does a team that was TOTALLY inactive the turn before
have the right or ability to challenge?!  The Commission is a FRAUD!! -- Jhezra

Quar-ral -- Figures. -- Annette

Sorry WoF and DeGotti, other worlds are keeping me busy, I have to take a break, but
I will be back soon. -- Adie

Wow what nice surprise going 3-0 last turn.  Guess I can only go down hill from
there! :) -- DeGotti

WoF -- You know we have always had a great respect for you and the rest of the
Consortium.  I am always glad to be in an arena with you. -- DeGotti

WoF -- All those avoids don't help much with random match ups now do they? -- DeGotti

Eclipse -- You have been rather quiet the last few turns.  Perhaps you have been too
busy doing tourney prep? -- DeGotti

Shteffi Graaf -- Did anybody ever tell you that it's really, like, lots easier to
talk if you swallow the mashed potatoes first?  I mean, no offense, but I don't even
know what you SAID, there at the end. -- Debra Conklin

Euroq -- I didn't understand at first, but now I see your true nature and all.  I
think it was when you burst into flames and laid an egg in the arena that did it.
Very startling. -- Jacinthe

Earl -- Ha, I've got YOUR number now.  You're just a sinister, left-handed
troublemaker, that's what YOU are.  I hate that in a man. -- Zellit

Dr Steinburger -- Just call me "Trainer of Champions" Collin, eh?  (sigh)  I suppose
SOMEBODY has to do it. -- Becker Collin

Broqus -- Ah?  Cool!  I didn't think it would be that easy, especially at the
beginning.  But...cool. -- Pellozoen

Dr Steinburger -- But you are, now, very clean.  This is important. -- Lori Collin

Juanita -- Really?  When I want to hit a chart, I usually grab a flyswatter. -- Debra
Conklin

Jhezra -- Nah, I could NOT have hit you first.  It would be ungentlemanly of me, and
I am as polite as I can be, you know. -- Becker Collin
P.S.  If it's lame, it isn't a tirade, it's a jeremiad.

Lothar -- You call that...bit?  Cheese. -- Jacinthe

DeGotti -- Oh, okay.  Um, white rum or dark? -- Zellit

Ed. -- A dwarf with no beard is not a dwarf.  Hard, but there it is.  A beard is a
critical defining characteristic.  This also explains why, when the Commission sees
ANYONE with a beard, they're liable to label him, her, or it a dwarf. -- Kurli
Kegbiter, Dwarf of Khalhums

     I think someone needs to work at changing that narrow definition!  Dwarves
     should be allowed more freedom of expression! -- Ed.

     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

I received a Gift Certificate from someone.  I'm assuming it's for entry into the

Thanks.
