     Phantasm had just dismissed Ookazi to the guild house and now his next agent had
arrived to give his report.  Phantasm remained seated at the wooden table and did not
turn to greet Umi as he entered the tavern door.  Normally he would not let his
agents, or anyone for that matter, approach his back, but the Spymaster always made
it a point to have his back to Umi whenever the opportunity arose.
     Three years earlier, Phantasm was following a mark in the city of Bonsur.  Umi
had come upon him in a darkened alley and attempted to mug Phantasm.  Umi's limp was
a stark reminder of that mistake.  The once agile young man did not move through the
darkness and alleyways as he once did.  Luckily, Phantasm recognized Umi's quick wit
and domineering spirit.  The Spymaster recruited the young man on the spot.  "If you
make it to the Isle, the Witch can fix your limp," is the promise Phantasm always
gave to Umi.  The thought of Sheila Greywand granting him immortality and mending his
broken hip functioned as a strong motivator for the young agent.
     "The night is passing quickly," Phantasm waited as Umi seated himself, "give
your report so we both may take our rest for the night."
     "As you wish," Umi nodded.  "The northerners are a very secretive group.  They
do not take too kindly to strangers either," Umi began.  "The tribes that inhabit the
Badlands are the worst, but I knew all the vital information I needed would be
provided by them."
     "Skip the introduction," Phantasm warned.  "I know all about the Badlanders.
There is only one Badlander I sent you to investigate.  Tell me everything you
uncovered concerning Maximillian."
     "As you wish," was once again the reply.  "All the information I could gather
began...

                       *******************

     "For crimes against the tribe, Maximillian, we of the Tribal Council find you
guilty.  You are hereby stripped of privilege and citizenship offered to every member
of this tribe.  You are hereby stripped of your rank among our people.  Maximillian,
son of Morgul, you are exiled from our lands to the lands of the Southerners.  Should
you ever choose to return, you will be executed," the voice broke through the wintry
chill of the night.  The speaker, Jord Ironbull of the Tribal Council, rolled the
animal skin with the Council's judgment upon it and placed it in Maximillian's hand.
     Jord Ironbull was the elder member of the Council and Maximillian could see in
the old man's eyes that he did not take pleasure in his pronouncement.  Jord was as
old as the northern mountains, an elder among the people.  He would no doubt still be
the Badlander's chief if age had not taken its toll upon his body.  It was now Jord's
wisdom he offered to the Badlands tribe and not strength of arms.  That privilege
belonged to Ymir Bloodgrin.
     If Jord Ironbull was as old as the mountains, Ymir Bloodgrin was as tall and
strong as those same mountains.  His massive frame dwarfed even the largest warrior
of the Badlands tribe.  His arms and chest looked to be chiseled from stone and his
muscular frame was detailed under the heavy animal skins he wore.  He wielded a large
greatsword, fashioned in the ways of the Badland's tribe, but it bore a striking
resemblance to the southern Mordant greatsword.  The greatsword, or Polar-biter as it
was referred to among the Badlanders, was a few inches short of six feet with a keen
double edge.  A sturdy cross-tee hilt was adorned with rubies and emeralds.  Ymir
wielded the greatsword often with one hand and effectively.  His strength and skill
with the sword made him the Badland's chief and head of the Tribal Council.
     Maximillian was shocked at the verdict.  He knew his own failure and the crime
that had now cast him from his homeland forever.  He expected a death sentence.  "I
deserve a death sentence," he thought.  He then remembered the events that brought
him to the fate now before him.
     A force from southern city, Kurukar had sent a troop into the Badland
territories.  The group was nothing more than a band of mercenaries hired by a
wealthy merchant to seek out spoils in the tribal lands of the Badlanders.
Maximillian, War-Master of the Badlands tribe, led his men to face the intruders, but
in the midst of the skirmish with the mercenaries, a second group, hired by the same
merchant from Snowbound came upon them.  Maximillian's forces were decimated on the
snowy hills of the Badlands.  He and his men were left for dead, yet when the scene
was discovered three days later, Maximillian, and only Maximillian, was still alive.
He was carried back to the Badlander's camp and nursed back to health for one
purpose; he was to stand trial for his failure as War-Master.
     Ymir Bloodgrin stood as Jord Ironbull returned to his seat.  "You look shocked
at the mercy this council has bestowed upon you nephew."  Ymir circled Maximillian as
he spoke, "Know this, your punishment is exile instead of death for one reason--I
willed it to be so!  You are the son of my sister, and I do not wish for the grief of
your failure to be a burden to her.  Depart from us!  Never return!"  Ymir turned
Maximillian to the tent entrance and pushed him through the opening.
     Maximillian picked himself up from the snowy ground.  The tribe had gathered
outside of the Tribal Council's tent.  No one would look at Maximillian.  As the
former War-Master made his trek to exit the camp, the Badlanders would turn their
backs to him.  Someone, his mother perhaps, had gathered his belongings and placed
them at the exit of the camp.  His winter furs and weapons were bundled together.  A
later discovery of dried meat, cheese, and water would confirm Maximillian's
suspicion that his own mother had prepared the travel pack of his possessions for
him.
     Maximillian traveled south, first to the land of Kurukar.  A wealthy merchant
was found dead some weeks after his arrival, but Maximillian was gone before he could
be questioned by the city's authorities.  He traveled further south through the
swamps of North Fork eventually moving southwest to Fratsfa.  From there he went to
the city of Arkers.  The snowcapped mountains reminded Maximillian of the northern
lands he once called home.  Here he would begin his new life among the Southerners he
so despised.  Here in Arkers, Maximillian would build his legacy.

                       *******************

     "Interesting.  Interesting," Phantasm mumbled.  His mind was racing trying to
find a connection between Kat and Maximillian.  In truth, he finally conjectured,
there was not a concrete connection between the two.  They both had similar
backgrounds, but Phantasm wondered how many other gladiatorial managers were exiled
from their homelands or were covering a shady past.  Kat, an Aruaki, had fled from
his homeland under threat of death to the free city of North Fork.  Maximillian, a
barbarian of the Badlands tribe from northern Alastari, had been exiled from his
tribe and relocated to Arkers.
     If no personal connection could be made between the two, Phantasm would have to
explore their professional connections.  Maybe then he could find the information he
was searching for and uncover why the Krypteia had approached both men.  The
Spymaster dismissed Umi and stood to leave the tavern.  There was more information to
gather and many more plots to set in motion before the night was over.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

To all Turf War junkies, I thought when I get here it would be something to boast
about; yet I just don't have it in me to talk down to all you Billy Bad a$$e$!  So to
any who care might I suggest using Delarquan strats by hitting them where it hurts;
right in the scum.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Take a look at OF WOLF AND MAN's act, as they have a 4-1-0 week and 
gain 11 places in the team ranking.  Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread 
(okay, I admit it's corny) is DRAKE'S COMICS, who swept up 19 places in the ranks.  
Take a look at THE LAST RESORT's act, as they have a 3-2-0 week and gain 15 places in 
the team ranking.  Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread (okay, I admit 
it's corny) is I HATE THEM, who swept up 19 places in the ranks.  Take a look at DARK 
PINNACLE's act, as they have a 3-0-0 week and gain 19 places in the team ranking.  
Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread (okay, I admit it's corny) is 
DESOLATE ONES, who swept up 13 places in the ranks.  Take a look at RONIN's act, as 
they have a 4-1-0 week and gain 23 places in the team ranking.  What goes up, must 
come down.  Watch out DOUBLE-X!  BLACK STORM may fall on you as it crushes past the 
teams below it to fall on the 20th spot.  Suffering under a 2-3-0 record and dropping 
from 4th to 24th place were the THE OPERA.  Keep trying!  A seasoned team is steady 
in the lists.  But to ABYSMAL RITES, which fell to 27th, it's what you soak in before 
going to the Dark Arena.  Suffering under a 0-5-0 record and dropping from 10th to 
32nd place were the TIMELY HEROES.  Keep trying!  What goes up, must come down.  
Watch out DOUBLE-X!  CHEERS may fall on you as it crushes past the teams below it to 
fall on the 33rd spot.  A seasoned team is steady in the lists.  But to GAELIC STORM, 
which fell to 35th, it's what you soak in before going to the Dark Arena.  Suffering 
under a 2-3-0 record and dropping from 29th to 44th place were the X-MEN II.  Keep 
trying!  NATURAL B. KILLERS 2 is no joke as it posted a 4-0-0 week advancing from 
25th place to 18th place.  Hey everybody, watch out for MALICIOUS, who flew up 26 
points in the rankings after mashing NIGHTCRAWLER like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  RED DEVIL was 
defeated by DON KING and drops 18 points.  What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man 
have in common?  They are both the most challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey! 
CUP OF TOE got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than 
anxious to kick OPAI's tail out of the throne!  Going for the gusto and coming up 
with aught but bloody knuckles was MYSTIC ORC FEAST's CUP OF TOE, who was turned away 
from the Duelmastership by OPAI.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion 
a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid OF WOLF AND MAN, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does DOUBLE-X really have that 
many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause 
CHEERS beats feet every time OF WOLF AND MAN smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  In a 
mismatch, our friend MEDEE of THE OPERA got heroic notions and challenged HUMBUG.  
What did it get him?  A 14-4-0 record, that's what.  This week MEDEE 14-4-0 fought 
HUMBUG 24-16-1 and in losing gained 4 points.  I know several gladiators who could go 
for a few fights like that.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, DRAMA 
QUEEN went after ORC PLAGUE, who was higher by 18 points.  Well, when the dust 
settled, DRAMA QUEEN overcame ORC PLAGUE.  BLACKENED of OF WOLF AND MAN had better 
have a good reason for challenging down 14 points in a challenge which he won.  I 
thought BLACKENED showed great skill and promise when he defeated MY PILLOW.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Big deal, so PSYLOCKE got mashed in the Dark Arena.  With 
hers face she was more at home with the trolls than with us. (Waka waka).  For those 
of you who missed it, Death showed up, grabbed GALIUS by the ear and took him away to 
a place where he won't need a coat.  The audience likes blood and there was plenty of 
it covering NIGHTCRAWLER as he was driven to an early grave by MALICIOUS of the 
DOOMWOLVES.  Big creature!  COURT JESTER kills GALIUS.  Who ya gonna fight next, 
COURT JESTER--Minnie Mouse?  I hope KNIGHTS TEMPLAR has a good enough fighter to beat 
the snot out of COURT JESTER.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your 
ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you can pick your 
friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The

All -- Please note Ray Monroe (47-6173) is my champion. -- JGW, manager of JGW
Perishable, member of Swamp Syndicate

Baphomet -- I am declaring my warrior Scum Fights as the champion for my team. --
Nuln 

Chance -- A rough one for you but like your name everyone has a chance. -- Pilsner

Pestilence -- Well I thought I could take you but you proved me wrong.  Was close for
a while so I dont feel too bad. -- Ale

Lady Peri -- A very nice challenge for you.  I wasn't really expecting it.  We shall
leave it at that for now as we shall meet again I am sure. -- Malt

Abandon Hope -- I hate random matchups but then again I hate being challenged as
well.  Very well done. -- Hops

Jay Monroe -- It was a good effort.  Feel free to give it another try if you think
that wasn't enough. -- High Test

Rookie Confederation -- Not a bad turn but we can do better.  Luck to us all. --
Wretch

SCOMSS -- A very fine turn.  Now may you all trip and stab yourselves in your up
coming fights. -- Wretch

DK Kon -- Rookie this rookie that, in the immortal words of Bruce Campbell "come get
Some." -- Wretch

Blunder Woman -- Belerus had a bad habit.  That habit has been fixed.  I hope this
fight provides you with more fun. -- Bezubub, mgr Infernal Cabaret

George Washington -- Thanks.  Next time you are free let's dance, you and I. -- Catha

All -- Being defeated is a temporary diversion, giving up is total failure.

All -- This is Xoan, and I am informing every one that I will be running with RC, as
the team called Vision of Xoan.  So, greetings and may you spit sand rather than
tulips.  Hey!  Why are the Dark Arena names in this arena still named after those
SCOMSS people anyway?  SCOMSS are are the reigning Turf War LOSERS.  Heck, that Mark
chap hasn't run here in years!  In case people have forgotten, The folks that gave
you Double-X still run the joint.  I demand those Dark Arena names be changed back to
their original names! -- Manager/Impresario

Mannequin -- You rock!  Run most of the Black Guard teams under Pestilence.  Great
match, you so owned Obsession in that one. -- Liam the Goth

Fade to Black -- Yah, just not mine oown flesh, good challenge. -- Rigor

Bog -- I have to say I got help at the Bulldog Inn from a fellow by the name
of...<wink> -- Spectre

Jack -- Well, Jill said a threesome would be fun.  I saw that smile on your face. --
Spectre

Master Beru -- I don't do that E-stuff, but I did send my contact info. -- Liam

Drake -- I see dead people and high-powered sun lamps!  Oh great, you had to put in
sunlamps, gee thanks, kill the sunlamps. -- Liam

Buddy Lee -- Congrat on the DM, know Sensei Jan will be happy to hear of this. --
Liam

Drama Queen -- I can bake muffins and burp the whole alphabet. -- Opai

Oz the Envious -- Definitely befuddled.  So much so that I forgot to bring my Ten Is
Raquet to the center court arena.

Tripwire -- Of course you wouldn't understand.  Honour is having the two top warriors
in the arena fighting off mano a man...er...habito for the throne. -- Crip

Da Ting -- I heard you wanted an encore. -- Drama Queen

All -- Greetings everyone.  I hope to have a long and prosperous stay here in North
Fork or whatever it is you all call this arena these days.  I was looking for an
active slow arena to go and mix it up with my friends in.  I originally started this
team in Aradi but once I decided that the Greek Guy(tw) and Nuln(tw) would hang out
in Challengers for a while I decided to move these guys into here to play around
with.  Nuln(tw) got himself killed off in Challengers unfortunately so it was really
just the Greek Guy(tw) that pinhead Anti(tw) and the biggest (or smallest depending
on your perspective) loser of them all Soultaker(tw) left on the team.  I just
recently decided to come active and low and behold I found two more of my most
dislikeable fellow managers to play around with, the Creepster(tw) Slugbait(tw).
Feel free to stop on by and kick them around a bit.  I certainly won't mind. -- Mad
Max mgr. I Hate Them

All -- Before I forget, when ever you see (tw) immediately following a name in the
personal ads it means it was written by the warrior and not the manager.  Just a
heads up to avoid confusion. -- Mad Max

Adder -- Sorry about the rough treatment short one.  I've been inactive for a while
and I decided to take my frustrations out on someone.  Unfortunately for you it was
you. -- Anti(tw)

Bleeder -- Um, like, that name, um, like, where did I put my dentures again?  Oh,
there they are (shuffles off to find his choppers breaking wind the entire time).
-- Soultaker(tw)

Thrusher -- Exceeeeeelent!  Another win for the Crazy Creep, Creep, Creep, Creepster!
Yabba, Dabba, Donkers, Woooh, Hoooo Hoooo!!!!!! -- the Creepster(tw)

Hallion -- I consider myself fortunate that I was able to turn the tide against you.
You'll be eating some avoids from me/ -- Slugbait(tw)

Rumor of the week -- Father O'Malley was seen sneaking out of the Lost Souls
guildhouse.  A sigh of relief was breathed by children everywhere in North Folk.  The
Sheep still remain worried.  More next week.

     I think I managed to extract all the personals from your stew, but it would help
     if you'd send it in plain text.  Thanks. -- Temp Ed.

My Pillow -- I hate!  Lumpy!  Pillows! -- Cystal

Bone Breaker -- Let's trade skills! -- Mirage

All -- No deaths last turn?!?  What kind of Turf War is this, the Andorian kind?? --
Kon

Dark Knights -- Good solid turn, though as expected Scomms came back with a
vengenance.  Buckle down and bring the might of the Desolate Empire to bear on the
swamp!  Show no mercy and expect none in return. -- Dark Knight Kon, Empire Rising,
DEA

Blackstorm -- Heathen will not be able to make it, so bring in your replacement.
Have him announce, you name him as well and I will approve it per the rules.  Keep up
the good work Brother! -- DK Kon

Baphomet -- The team and manager Blackstorm names and declares for the DEA will be
approved to battle for our banner.  I assume his gift certificate will be paid from
those Toker sent for all DEA members. -- DK Kon, DEA
P.S.  I'm glad you received a good replacement and look forward to the bloodfueds.  I
avoid nobody, though from the looks of your team I wish you the best of luck trying
to get those points!

Toker -- Great to see you, Brother!  You should have received my letter by now, so
all is well.  This is our arena Bro!  They just don't know it yet!  Let's show 'em!!
-- DK Kon, DEA

Black -- One down and three to go huh?  Better luck on the next one. -- Dark Knight
Kon the killer, DEA

Wretch -- Did you know that hops (a sedative herb) are actually added and have been
since the signing of the Bavarian purity laws on April 24, 1526?  This were the first
drug laws established for beer!  Hops contain lupiline and estrogen (the cause of
delayed ejaculation and excess fat around the chest in men) can produce melancholy

and actually are the cause of the bitter taste of beer.  As an anti-hop advocate I
prefer the natural mead my ancestors favored.  Though the occasional hemp beer is not
bad either! <big grin> -- Dark Knight Kon, Empire Rising, DEA

Doomwolves -- Great start!  My only hope is that your alliance mates can start
keeping pace.  Keep up the great work! -- Kat

North Fork -- Be proud.  52 teams populated the 'Double-X' arena last turn! -- Kat

"YELLOW SNOW CONE overpowered BEARCLAW" -- You know, even from a snacking point of
view, this fight was disturbing. -- The Calico of Confectionairy -- Kat

SCOMMS -- Nice positioning for the TW.  Strategy certainly seems on your side.  Well
played. -- Kat

Master Beru -- Your guys hit on their SISTERS?!  What kind of freak show are you
running over there? -- Drake

Asp -- You kill Bulk's friend.  Now Asp must listen to Bulk's poetic laminations
about how sad Bulk is at loss of friend.  If Asp fall asleep, Asp must sit through
laminations again. -- The Rampaging Bulk

Drama Queen -- Yah know, I'm 'bout gettin' tired o' seein' YOUR name on th' challenge
sheet. -- Da Ting
P.S.  IT'S AVOIDIN' TIME!!!!

Woody (the warrior) -- I think your cardio could use a little work. -- Fe Male

Oblivion -- Right, more laps for me. -- Blunder Woman

Grim Jack -- It's best not to try to block attacks with your throat. -- Jugglenought
