     The bar was quiet and mostly deserted save for a few regulars and Club Fed, who
were gathered around a small table covered in bottles and half-finished drinks, all
except Glitter Boy.
     Skaven looked over his shoulder and shook his head in disgust, then reached for
a bottle and took a gulp, wiping his mouth with the bakc of his hand, then spoke to
nobody in particular, "Where's Glitter?"
     Vae Victus glanced at Skaven, then turned his attention to an exceptionally
attractive barmaid.  "Who knows, who cares?  You know Glitter, he always was a loner.
I'm sure he's out getting a date for the night.  He'll show up sooner or later."
     "Yeah, a date.  I wonder whose heart he's gonna break this time?"
     "I don't know, I don't care, and I don't want to know.  Glitter will do as
Glitter does."
     Skaven took another gulp fromt he bottle and slammed it back down on the table,
cursing.  "He was supposed to be here two hours ago!"
     Lucifer smiled and laughed.  "Awww, poor Skaven.  Do you miss our little ole
pretty Glitter Boy?  I mean, I know Glitter doesn't go for the ladies, but I don't
think you're his type.  He's real picky about the guys he dates.  Don't tell me you
think he's cute, too?!"
     In a sudden surge of rage, Skaven tipped the table over, throwing bottles and
glasses to the floor where they shattered.  He lunged at Lucifer, fury burning in his
eyes....

     ...The temple was ancient and open to the sky and elements.  Thousands of
towering white marble pillars reached for the sky, glittering faintly from the light
coating of frost they each bore.  Between every pillar hung massive banners of the
most vivid colors:  reds, blues, greens, yellows, and many more.  The banners rippled
gently in the brisk evening air as a very soft snow floated down from above, landing
silently on the blue marble floor.
     Despite the dark of night, the temple was gorgeously lit by countless candles
that burned blue and white, making each snowflake twinke like a tiny star as it fell.
Seemingly from everywhere a choir sang, an angelic song that echoed subtly in a
heavenly lullaby.
     Somewhere deep within, Glitter Boy, clad in the raiment of tears, a small silver
choker around his neck and a loose silver chain about his wrist, walked slowly toward
a large glass altar covered in small candles and small trinkets and coins.
     Offerings...
     Glitter Boy approached somberly and knelt, whispered a prayer, then bowed his
head down to touch the floor lightly with his forehead.  In time he sat upright,
still on his knees, his hair hung in damp strands here and there--some in his eyes,
some spiking here and there, messy, provocative.  Here and there an errant snowflake
would land on him before vanishing into the black fabric of his clothes.  Melting
away.
     A single tear fell from Glitter's eye as he reached forward to light several
small candles and leave a small stack of coins upon the altar.  He closed his eyes as
another tear rolled down his cheek, twinkling in the candlelight before falling on
the floor.
     In time, he began to speak in that strange foreign accent from a continent far,
far to the south and west.  "For all those who no longer walk beside us, I light
these candles in your mrmory.  May the light guide you.  And I wish you knew how much
I miss you.  And for all of us who still walk this path, may the light guide our
steps and warm us, heart and body, mind and soul."
     Glitter Boy stood up, brushed the tears away, opened his eyes and sniffled, his
nose rosy pink from the chill air.  He smiled one of his famous devlish grins.  "And
to all in North Fork, Happy Holidays!"

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ahh, it's good to be me.  And it's good to be you as well, as you need no longer
tremble in fear at seeing my name as your matchup, since I have fought my last fight
in the North Fork arena.  I am Wilhelm Scream, your new duelmaster--the first DM and
graduate from Ottodrome TW.  I'd like to congratulate my alliance-mate Big Mac on his
daring Dark Arena challenge last turn.  I do believe he's started a tradition here at
M*MBO.  I'm planning to follow his lead and take out one of those nighttime nasties.
I gave a mean stare at Black Orc yesterday and he about soiled his loincloth.  With
that I bid you and this fair arena a fond adieu.  Glory or ignominy awaits!

                                                   Wilhelm Scream

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, NORTH FORK?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  With any luck, I can sneak into The 
Dripping Blade and join DARQUE FORCES' celebration over their good record this turn.  
5th place, not bad.  If The Dripping Blade is buying drinks for SERPENTS HOLD 200's 
good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 3-1-0 makes for a big 
thirst.  Oh, this is too good to be true!  THE WILLBURYS 47A has fallen to 18th place 
after going 2-3-0 this turn.  Who's bragging now?  With any luck, I can sneak into 
The Dripping Blade and join OBG!'s celebration over their good record this turn.  
19th place, not bad.  Why not, I'm having a good day, so I feel sorry for CHEERS, who 
went 1-4-0 and dropped 14 into 30th.  Here's my pity, for what it's worth.  Now let's 
all watch BUBBA'S TW ARMY's heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  
Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see CLANCY 
win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CHICKEN A LA KING beat ASP and 
ASP lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke or broken, our 
Duelmaster FRENCH FRYER Dark Arena Challenged this turn.  And if variety is the spice 
of life, NORTH FORK may be getting bland, as WILHELM SCREAM stays top dog in the 
city.  The Dripping Blade, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do 
they get this stuff?  From NORTH FORK's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  BUBBA'S TW ARMY was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like ROYAL FLUSH avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  ROOT 
WIZARD was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Now look at this.  VENOMOUS CLEMENTINE challenged 
down 21 against OTTODROME TW's DONETO.  What a weasel!  And golly gee, VENOMOUS 
CLEMENTINE killed DONETO.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?  And we have DING 
DONG in a challenge, going down 12 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought DING 
DONG showed great skill and promise when it overcame THE CREEPSTER.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for NORTH FORK's 
morgue.  More variety.  OTTODROME TW has cause to pause today, as WILHELM SCREAM was 
sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, I'll wager.  
Gee, THE BIZZARR, ain't it past due for sending SARAPHINE Dark Arena?  What took ol' 
'5-9-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as the 
next guy, but hey TORUS, whyja send THE SAGE WARD to the Dark Arena, look at his 
record, huh?  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  DONETO, a glorious 5-3-1 fighter, has 
passed away.  Gee, too bad OTTODROME TW.  A big yahoo goes out to ALEX TREBEK this 
turn, for revenging BUBBA'S TW ARMY's bloodfeud against LES TURFISTES' warrior DIRT 
BOGART.  Heh, heh, heh.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in NORTH FORK to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide 
Clemens

Well, I guess we have to scream out a "kudos' to Wilhelm Scream, Duelmaster and Lord
Protector. -- Oz The All Jealous

Dungeon Porter -- You silly guy!  You should not have allowed your dimwit horny goat
of a manager to challenge me.  Why waste your time?  Waste his instead.  But, you
know, tell him 'thanks."  I needed an easy win. -- Zeke, Land Of Oz

Aegre De Miles -- Ding dong, da wicked victus be down. -- Ding Dong, Land Of Oz

The Creepster -- You traitor!  You were The Consortium TOGS rep and now you fight for

the Rillion and the BOBbies?  You were a better manager than you are a fighter.
Rillion, I suspect, is neither. -- Fence, (speaking straightforwardly and stodgily as
only a fence could)

Hornet -- You can't sting a brick, baby! -- Yellow Brick, Land Of Oz

Ultima Regum -- Beware, bad things come in threes, they say.  You have only two to
go.

M*AMBO -- Slow down, folks! -- Oz The All Demanding

M*AMBO = mean and medling bumbling oafs -- Oz The All Informative

Oz Feast Le Bananas -- NOW is the time slide the roadster in gear.  Heavy on the
pedal! -- Oz The All Motivating Emerald, Land Of Oz

Kudos to Mr. Strategic, Madwand, who declared his Lord Protector Duelmaster champion
at the last moment in advance of the final winning DA fight for a huge 20 points.
Wise old Madwand, whom we all hate with great intensity! -- Oz The All Duped

Mannequin -- That act last round deserved an academy award!  No speaky, no fighty, no
pointy.  Just like a true mannequin. -- Oz The All Facetious

Ozers ** I am very proud of your 5-0 last round, even though it did not earn the free
rollup.  Madwand stole that from you. -- Oz The All Praising

All -- Please note that there is a correction to the posted round 5 scoring that is
not reflected in the spotlight above.  (It will show up in future postings.)  All-
Star Nanas have one more kill in their round record and hence totals.  Llikewise
Alliance PMS has the same.  I apologize for the "miss" and not getting it in the
posted data for round 5. -- Oz The All Apologetic (with Master Darque looking on
saying "tsk tsk")

Cherry Bomb -- Ah yes, the lucky shot every fighter inevitably gets dealt.  Good
challenge up and earned learns. -- Turq

Evil One -- I like the matchup, and the pace of exchanges... even thought most were
being received by multiple areas of *my* body.  Not what I'd ever seen with your
style; interesting.... -- Bro'tor

Gautrek -- Not sure how much more I could've stood in that first minute.  Glad I had
near twice the experience to pull me through in minute 2. -- Christos

Old N Bitter -- If you're old and bitter, then I must be young and sweet the way you
ran me over.  I may not've won, and I may not've gained any trains, but learned I did
as a first time out. -- Manowar

Darque Forces -- Dearly beloved, we are gathered here this turn 322, to pay respect
to the unfortunate demise of Grimlock, and to with his killer (fare?) well in
surviving the next four bloodfeud turns; they're gonna be some doozies, I'm sure, as
I look up the ranks of your remaining way-outmatching team.  Well, no guts, no glory.
-- Warthog

It appears that there has been a change in the standings.  After it was realized that
the 'L' in LBA+ stands for Lobotomized, sponsors and fans quickly withdrew funding
and support!  Without these two vital things, investors began to pull out as well.
Enjoy watching one of the greatest free falls of an alliance ever! -- Assur

Wait until the gang fight starts in the park.  Only this time, it'll be a gang
fighting among itself for the scraps of resources it has left.

First half points?  We're just trying to get our warriors into the arena.  They're
threatening a strike. -- LBA+

Crip -- You just made the naughty list for that challenge! -- Assur

Root Wizard -- HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA -- Assur

Bubba -- Given those two challenges, I'd have expected 1-1!  But not which was which.
Oh, and HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! -- Assur

The Sage Ward -- Well fought.  And the loss does hurt as much as -- Sticks and Stones

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
