Between Point and Aruak City:

     Captain Tollisker kept them moving at a steady walk-trot-walk which chaffed
Adie's nerves even as she recognized that it was going to give them the most distance
covered in the least time.  If they'd been able to count on changing horses, things
would have been different, but since they couldn't....  They were arguably on the
King's Business, cleaning up the mess Khaldren had made of the Clanholds, and they
should be able to get spare horses from the royal posting stations.  If there had
been any horses to get.  They passed two such stations between Point and Aruak City;
one had been completely deserted and showing signs of vandalous attack, the other was
doing duty as a farmhouse-and-fortress, and there were only two heavy plowhorses in
the corral.
     Adie watched the countryside flow past as they rode and wondered how things had
gotten so bad so quickly.  Except, some of the damage done to buildings, bridges,
roads, fields didn't look like quick work.  Some had plainly been done the year
before, or even longer ago, and never repaired.  Even if he could not reach into the
heart of the Clanholds at this time, the King should be doing something!  What was he
thinking to let things go like this?  He was playing right into Khaldren's hands.
"We'll have to talk to him," she muttered, glaring at another abandoned farmstead.
     "There are lots of people we'll have to talk to," Fandil answered.  The old man
sounded weary and grim.  "It's figuring out what to do first that'll be the problem.
The king, the clanlords...Lady Sheila?  Other magicians and priests?  Do we start
working on the effects of the shapeshifter plague first, or tackle the political and
governmental mess first, or--"
     "Or square off against Khaldren first," Adie said.  "He's the root of the
problem."  When the old magician didn't answer immediately, she sighed.  "I know Cho
said we shouldn't act rashly against Khaldren, but we have to DO something and fast.
And...Fandil, can we trust Cho?"
     "Trust his judgment in the matter of attacking Khaldren?  Yes, no question about
it."  Another of those silences that she had come to know meant he was figuring out
how to say something she might not want to hear.  "Khaldren is the root of our
current problems," he said finally.  "But the real, deepest, original root is Lady
Sheila, Adie."
     The sun priestess had several different reactions to that statement, and they
whirled through her so quickly she couldn't decide which to pick first.  Finally, she
just said, "How is she a problem?"
     "How many days have we got to list the ways?" he asked.  Then he swept the
question away with a gesture.  "Doesn't matter right now.  Root or no, it's like the
old saying, you know the one.  How it's hard to remember, when you're up to your, ah,
hips in alligators, that your initial objective was to drain the swamp.  First things
first, and we have to get to Aruak City and start killing alligators.  Later for
draining the swamp."
     "But not too much later," Adie said.
                        ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     They had stopped at sunset, still fifteen miles short of Aruak City.  A
farmhouse with hex signs painted over every door and window, a wary family, a watch
kept through the night, on the way again at sunrise.  Two more hours to the city.
     A wary city.  The main gates were closed, with travelers being admitted one at a
time through secondary gates after a careful scrutiny.  Name, occupation, residence,
reason for traveling, and do you have any local references?
     And when they got in, the mood of the city was...odd.  Unexpected.  Some
wariness, yes, they'd expected that.  But there was a bright, almost eager
heedlessness, a hunger for violence near the surface, that was as shocking as the
blood-splashes on the walls.
     "I wish Tollisker had come in with us, him and his twenty good men, instead of
heading back to Point right away," Fandil muttered.
     "This is Aruak City," Adie protested.  "The heart and soul of Andoria!"  She
flinched as an argument over the price of onions at a market booth erupted into
blows, escalated to the use of clubs and daggers, spread like fire in dry grass
across the market square, then faded out.  Faded, except for half a dozen men and
women limping and a body being dragged away down an alley.  "What is WRONG with these
     "Alligators," Fandil answered grimly.


     The chosen tunnel descended steadily.  Gissanniah could tell that from the way
her legs ached, but she found it hard to judge the angle of the slope.  Steeper than
the fall of land between Point and Krael, she thought.  Had they come far enough to
actually be under the ruined city?  She touched one wall.  Wet stone.  The other
wall.  She could touch them both at once.  Even with Doc Circ's elixir she felt
confined.  Trapped.  But the elixir prevented a full-blown attack of claustrophobia,
so it was probably good.  Another hundred-foot-marker knot slipped through her hands.
The eighteenth one since they'd tied the rope near the entrance.  Eighteen hundred
feet...they hadn't gotten far, then.  More than a quarter of a mile, less than a
half, she didn't try to do the math in her head.
     The men in front of her came to a stop and bent over the map again.  Why?  There
was no junction here.  No sudden change in direction.  When they stood close
together, most of the light was blocked, leaving her in darkness.  In darkness, the
walls moved closer.  She couldn't prove that they actually did squeeze in, but...she
wasn't at all sure that they did not.  There was all that weight of land overhead.
Maybe the ceiling of the tunnel was being forced down.  She breathed in and breathed
out, filling her lungs and emptying them at a steady pace, counting, fighting the
urge to hold her breath and listen for the walls coming closer, which she would not
be able to hear, it would come silently when it did.  Resisting the urge to breathe
too fast as though in preparation for running.  Running wouldn't help, anyway, there
was nowhere to run to.
     What were they DOING that was taking so long?  Why didn't they get moving again?
     Master Cho was feeling along the left-hand wall.  The left side was sinister,
wasn't it?  Hadn't she heard it called the Lefthand Path when people did things the
dark way?  And Cho was strange, maybe even sinister, anyway: he was Adantri, and yet
a magician.  Everyone said there were no true Adantri magicians.  Of course, he
LOOKED Adantri, but--
     The wall faded away under his hands, showing the tunnel angling off to the left
and down more steeply.  "This way," he said, his voice echoing.

                             Notes from the arena champ.


YES!  Two turns of domination!  Ok, so the Kung-fu master isn't the greatest
contender around, but I'm tellin' ya, that guy's had some moves!  Just not enough.
<smile>  So like, one more turn, and if I'm still up here, I might be gone. <gasp>
No way!  Really?  Hey Davy, come here, I need to smack you around again.  I guess
good luck to me next turn, the other Fandils like to beat me up and take snippets of
my hair.  I think if I was a guy, I'd have to shave my head.  That's what happens
when you're on one of Adie's 'tuft' teams.

Ok, back to important stuff.  Oh, and the rest of you...don't die, but fight hard!
You're all great. Ardivent is great, because of you.  We're part of why Andoria is
great.  Ok, done rambling.

P.S.  Do I have to be a mistress or master?  How about...Duelgoddess...?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ARDIVENT will ever be the same.  And let's see, BONE MILL fought JACINTHE and 
gained 23 points and contributed to WOE TO WHITECHAPEL's 3-2-0.  LOTHAR LIGHTSWORD 
has lost to EARL, falling 12 points, while helping make TUFT-TASTIC! a 1-4-0 turn.  
DAVY PRIVETTE challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone 
TUFT-TASTIC!'s warrior.  Defending hers title for another turn, JHEZRA STEELBLADE 
kept FANDILS' warrior, DAVY PRIVETTE, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that 
our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Seaside Manor?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the INFERNAL LORDS stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on ARDIVENT, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided INFERNAL LORDS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was FANDILS.  Anyone 
surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that BANNIR PARK from BLUVALLEY WARRIORS 
was ARDIVENT's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, LIBERTINE from 
WILD OATS challenged up 21 points to fight JUANITA from the FANDILS stable.  
LIBERTINE perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was subdued by JUANITA and 
ended up with 57 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  THE BEARS II has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you kill your 
fighter, UNBEATABLE, who had a record of 2-0-1?' Is it really true that ARDIVENT has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ARDIVENT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARDIVENT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ARDIVENT again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

500!  Wow!  That was exciting!  Now I really feel like an old mage. -- Fandil The Wise

Soultaker was here.  You couldn't recognize him with that wig. -- WOF

Saw Death Stud also; but most of you probably missed him as he is so short and
unnoticeable. -- WOF

There was Falconier, too.  Did you see him?  He was hooded when he landed and quickly
flew away into the sunset. -- WOF

Hey!  Wasn't that Technogeek?  The one reading the book, hiding in the corner? -- WOF

Degotti, Soultaker & Mannequin's rendition of "Islands In The Stream" at The Red
Sands Brewery & Fine Food was a hoot.  I liked their encore of "Sail Along Silvery
Moon" too.  That's the biggest moon I ever saw! -- WOF

DeGotti -- Have had problems with lack of Hal confirmations for almost three weeks.
Suddenly, today it was aok again! -- Fandil The Wise

Bluevalley Warriors --Thanks!  I'll bet you are the ONLY ones to congratulate the
pompous Dr Steinberger! -- WOF

Hey, Libertine -- I'll have some fun in the bathtub with just about anyone.  (wink)
But you have to wipe off all that blood of yours and close your wounds first.
(AGAIN) -- Juanita

Temptation -- That was too tempting, you being a Lord and all.  (wink) -- Davy

Terrence Wycliff -- I knew I could do it on MY challenge, but otherwise...I think I
shall avoid. -- Earl

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Beware the curse of The Red Sands. -- Fandil The Wise

Sons Of Tull -- Welcome to Ardivent, the Arena Of The Red Sands.  It is a wonderful
and precarious place to be, and has been our home for years.  Thank you for the
beautiful diplo note introducing yourselves and your manager, Gerald Bostock.  We
enjoyed your comment "relish the opportunity to do battle with the best teams
Ardivent has to offer and you are high on that list!"  I only ask that you be gentle
with my woeful warriors.  Good luck to you.  May your stay in Ardivent be long and
successful. -- Fandil The Wise

Gerald Bostock -- Let me double check...good, spelled your name right.  It doesn't
look tricky, but those two O's had me doing double takes.  Welcome to Ardivent, it is
great to have another manager come to this fine city.  This is home to the Arena of
the Red Sands, and though this place had a pretty bloody past, don't let it fool you.
It's very Andorian, nobody likes to kill around here.  The sand...it's just the red
iron rich sands we find in the local rocks and soil here.  Good luck. -- Adie, Mgr.
Tuft Tuggers

Fandil -- Jhezra was ecstatic to get your compliments.  Davy beat her before, but she
put her newest skills to good use. -- Adie

Davy -- Sissy boy?  Uh...no comment.  I have no recollection of...well, whatever I...
I mean, whoever said that. -- Jhezra

DeGotti -- Do you not like chatting at a hairstylist's place with women like me?
<frown>  I thought you and Fandil were the social and caring type. -- Adie <wink>

Well, it may not be much, but it's nice to say Tuft-tastic! had the throne and top
team for turn 500.  A small but worth while bonus bit of history for my teams and
management. -- Adie

WOF -- A few cute tufts?  Are there specific locks of my hair you are enamored with?
Maybe I will give you a free snippet to always remind you of our long friendship.
You know, for those days when we're not out adventuring together.  <smile> -- Adie

Cadmus -- You know, if you don't find it beneath you, those AB warriors with the fist
I bet you could trade (sell) for a pretty penny to some other managers who would be
more than happy to develop them at the upper levels.  If you're so displeased with
them and you do not plan on managing teams beyond basic or lower ADM.  In any case,
certainly don't let the activities of various managers at the top of this game ruin
it for you here in the basic arenas with all of us.  We enjoy having you here.
Please stay, and enjoy. -- Adie

Earl -- Ouch.  Nicely done. -- Terrence

Jacinthe -- You should be a lot better since the last time we fought...shouldn't you?
-- Tuvuld, a youngin'

Kung-Fu Master -- "Everybody's into Kung Fu fightiiiing..."  Love that disco song!
Wooyeah! -- Jhezra

Smash Hit -- Wow.  I guess I picked the wrong guy for the bloodfeud!  Let's see how
my team fares in round two.... -- Gerald Bostock (manager, Sons of Tull)

Fear Vector -- Sorry about the two hits in the buttocks.  I was aiming for your head.
*playful wink* -- Crosseyed Mary

Dead Duck -- Either you were purposely swinging for vitals, or you have horrible aim.
Either way, you won. -- Anderson

Bannir Park -- The audience might have been bored to death, but my manager loved
every minute of our marathon match.  He would have preferred a happier ending for our
team, but such is our lot in life. -- Barre

All -- Sorry but I will have to miss this turn due to ongoing house repairs.  I am
currently out of my residence and don't have access to my DM stuff.  I shall be back
next turn.  I hope. -- DeGotti

All -- I hope you all enjoyed the 500th turn celebration!  I know I did. -- DeGotti

Juanita -- Some girls just refuse to be swept off their feet. -- Libertine

WOF -- Surprised?  Nope.  Challenged?  Yup.  This is fun but, if Juanita tires of
Libertine's advances, please avoid him. -- Cadmus

Decker Cobb -- Aren't I just the cutest thing? <eyelashes aflutter> -- Tater Tot

Doane -- It's not the size of the dog in the fight.... -- Smash Hit

Anderson -- I think I know where this broadsword came from.  Nasty thing. -- Dead

Reaper -- Looking good.  My stable mates shall be following your career with
interest. -- Severance

WOF -- It's always good to hear the Andorian spirit reaffirmed.  Did you see that
Aradi finished second in percentage kills at the last tourney?  In this graceless
age, one appreciates Ardivent all the more. -- Cadmus

Jorja -- I'm currently in 12, 22 (home), 46, 60, 78, 82 (big time), 100, & 102.  I
believe the shared count stands at five?  If I stay with the game, I'll leave 12 and
60 in a few months and eventually return to 18.  What's a huraches? -- Cadmus

Adie -- What's with this tuft stuff?  Are you and WOF pulling up each other's lawns?
-- Cadmus

Tuvold -- Ouch!  If you've GOT to have a lock of hair, CUT it off, don't pull it out
by the roots! -- Jacinthe

Tater Tot -- Oh, pocket Venus, eh?  I never thought to see a Fratsfan so short, but
on you, it looks good.  Of course, you could be more friendly and I wouldn't MIND....
-- Decker Cobb

The Honest Merchant?  But I didn't want to fight the Honest Merchant!  He, you know,
talks too much.  On and ON.  And I don't even want to buy, um, well, what he's
selling.  No need to say what, right?  I mean, you can go and see if you really have
to know, but I'm not going to, you know, lower myself to talk about it.  As if! --
Debra Conklin

Up from the Sea -- And very pleasing you are to look at as you stand there on your
half-shell, clad in nothing much.  Quite a picture.  But I fear you're cold, and I
don't mean due to the lack of clothing.  I believe it would not be a good thing for
me to get involved with you, hmm? -- Caddo Scot

Barre -- Sorry to end things so quickly, but I forgot to pack a lunch. -- Bannir Park
P.S.  Wear a helm.  The head is vulnerable and vital.  Protect it.

Dr Steinberger -- And a smirk back to you.  Didn't you notice that it WAS a hen you
were dealing with?  My stand-in. -- M. Kingfisher Chardinee
