       + ]H[ + ---:--- + ]H[ Report from the Tourney #1 ]H[ + ---:--- + ]H[ +

     Larkin here, with a report from the Winter Tourney.  Okay, maybe this isn't
Atlantis, but it's somewhere warm, and if that isn't a beach, at least it's sand,
and, as advertised, there are drinks with umbrellas in them.  And young women with a
lot of suntan showing.  By the time you read this, the tourney will be over, but
while I'm writing it, the tourney is NOT over.  And a lot of you guys reading this
won't have been able to go, anyway.
     I'm interviewing Zalgor Prigg, one of the managers participating in the Old
Valamantis Bloodgames, and let me tell you, Old Valamantis is not a place you want to
hang around if you don't have to.  It's rotten with magic, to begin with--Folstrom
magic, the blackest there is--and then it's got all this blood and violence on top of
it, and it makes for a dark and scary venue.  Anything might rise out of the ruins
around the arena, summoned by the blood and the curses of the managers.
     "Mr. Prigg, could you tell us why you--"
     "It was the play on words," the manager said, overriding the question.  "I
couldn't resist--the chance to call a Bloodgames team Phoenix, you know, the 'rising
from the ashes of death' business.  Of course, then I had to change it to Phonetix,
but that's okay, keep people guessing."
     "I've heard the Commission mages talking about that name, sir, and they seem
alarmed.  One of them said the name was practically a spell in itself, used here."
     "I heard.  That's why I had to change it."
     "Have you considered what might actually rise from the ashes and blood here as a
result?"
     "Well, no, but that isn't my business, you know.  I manage gladiators.  Let the
mages worry about what pops in from some other dimension.  Besides, what if nothing
happens?"
     "But, sir, there have already been reports of zombie rats and tentacled monsters
lurking in the backs of the locker rooms!  And someone is bound to consider that you
have a partial responsibility--"
     "No," Prigg said, "I have no responsibility for that kind of thing.  I'm no
magician, I haven't been reading forbidden tomes...."  He paused, looking thoughtful.
"Maybe it was TigToad with his Obscure Lore...."
     "I don't believe there's a team of that name in this Bloodgames--"
     "No, not here.  Earlier, in Veastian.  He could have been, hmm, preparing for
this, opening contacts if not gates, stuff like that.  Has anybody seen any Dark
Toads around?"
     "Not until they've had six drinks with umbrellas in them.  Tell me, sir, have
you given any thought to the moral implications of the Bloodgames?"
     "What moral implications?" the manager asked.  "This isn't about morals, it's
about survival.  And the way to survive on the sands is to kill your opponents every
chance you get!"
     "Yes, but--"
     "There's a reason they don't hold these contests up in Andoria," the manager
said sternly.  "Good people in their ways, the Andorians, but they just aren't cut
out for this kind of grim business."  He paused to listen to the roar of the crowds
jamming the ancient arena.  Checked the marquee where slaves dangled from ropes and
updated the records of participants.  Nodded, grimly satisfied.  "Another death.
That's good--can't have too many survivors, or it cheapens the victory at the end."
     "But the death toll--"
     "Bah!  Don't get the idea that these gladiators are the flower of Alastarian
youth.  The ones who enter the Bloodgames are the men with no hope.  We offer them a
future they could never have dreamed of, but they have to work for it, sweat for it,
bleed for it, and sometimes die for it.  The survivors..." he bared his teeth in a
grin that would not have looked out of place on a wolf, "they owe us EVERYTHING, and
they'll do anything to repay us."
     "But--"
     "And besides," Zalgor Prigg went on, "if you really want to take up the moral
question, go talk to the Grey Wand.  She's the one set this up, after all."
     "I don't see the point, frankly.  She's got plenty of Lord Protectors, and they
have longer training, skills polished and honed to a--"
     "The Bloodgames victors, they're Her enforcers," Prigg said.  "No polish, sure,
but when a dirty job needs doing, one of these guys will do it, and no questions
asked."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Forty-four fights!  (Nice alliteration, don't you think?)  Those who accuse me
of getting old may be on to something.  But it has been forty-four good ones with no
tournament fights.  Let's see... I started in DM81 and went 7-2 before the transfer.
That means I have gone 29-6 in Snowbound.  Not too bad for an old lady.  Not bad at
all.  The five DM crowns are a nice touch also.
     But since this IS Snowbound, I can say that I did participate in a White (very
white) Christmas.  All The Consortium was visiting family (Grandkids!) in Kansas City
for the Holidays, and we had about 8 inches of the swirling, cold stuff for
Christmas.  It was nice, but it surely felt good to get back to South Carolina.
     I hope The New Tear treats you right.  Luck to all....
             Mrs. Vaughn

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in SNOWBOUND a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor. 
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, DURANGO KID fought 
REFUSE and gained 18 points and contributed to LIFE IMPACTS' 5-0-0.  LORRAINE BOBBITT 
has lost to WHISTLIN' DIXIE, falling 16 points, while helping make CRIMINAL MINDS a 
2-3-1 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between KIRLA LORVIN and our Duelmaster 
MRS. VAUGHN, making a challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have 
failed, and MRS. VAUGHN remains SNOWBOUND's top warrior for another turn.  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  DARQUE FORCES II has cause to stand 
tall, as they were SNOWBOUND's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding DARQUE FORCES II more than any other team we find LIFE 
IMPACTS.  SNOWBOUND, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was MIDDLE WAY 6's warrior KIRLA LORVIN.  More fighters 
challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  FORTISSIMO was sent 
to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  Whatever bright 
future LAND FILL may have had, it's all history now.  The manager of THE HEAP has 
lost a promising 2-0-1 warrior.  Congratulations go out to CRIMINAL MINDS, with TED 
BUNDY revenging a bloodfeud against LAND FILL of THE HEAP.  Is it really true that 
SNOWBOUND has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, SNOWBOUND, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet 
again, keep your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in 
SNOWBOUND again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
