     It was a dark and stormy night, and the next time one of Master Darque's
bodyguards mentioned that, the man would be a toad, and to Hell with the magical
     He should have remained in Morya till morning, but the storm had come up with no
warning.  Not even magical warning.  It was an insult.  He should have been warned.
He should have KNOWN there was a storm brewing, especially one like this, clouds
laced with magic, sizzling with raw spell energy.  How had it been possible?
     The half-demon frowned, pulling his hooded cloak more firmly around himself
against the ripping gusts.  Could his Enemy have obscured the early stages of the
build-up, especially to trick him into leaving shelter?  Master Darque had many
enemies, of course, that was a sign of his success.  But at this moment, THE Enemy
was only one person--the wizard Nishtar in Monuntial.  "They" said he was a half-elf,
but what was the other half?  Could he be dealing with the machinations of another
demon-born?  It was beginning to seem all too likely.
     His mount stumbled.  He hadn't wanted to ride a horse, but there had been no
boats leaving Morya for the upriver ports.  The horse hadn't wanted him to ride it,
either, but no lesser animal was going to cause problems when Master Darque did not
want problems.  So if it was stumbling now--  Ah, hailstones.  His cloak was proof
against such simple missiles, but the horse had no such protection.
     "Master!"  One of his dwarves rode up beside him and leaned close enough to be
heard.  "Master Darque, they say there are caves in those hills yonder!"  He gestured
at some low hills barely visible between the road and the shore.
     "They?"  Darque's voice dripped scorn.  Tyre, or it might be Sidon, in this
murk, who could tell? knew better than quote an unspecified "they" as an authority.
     "The people in the last town, at the stable where we stopped for fresh horses."
     "Ah.  You think we should seek this possible shelter, do you?"  Darque squinted
against a sudden burst of lightning.  That was actually not a bad idea.  He didn't
enjoy the weather, even when his cloak and his powers protected him from the worst
effects.  And a demon had to think of his followers just as much as a man did; treat
them badly, and the wretches would return the favor.  "Very well.  Let us seek one of
these caves, then.  Lead on."  Caves.  Pfui!  A resort for beasts.  At least, being
dwarves, his guards should have an instinct for this sort of thing.  They'd probably
feel quite at home in a cave.
     The dwarf rode ahead.  Tyre and Sidon had been as reluctant to mount horses as
he had himself.  Ah, well, if worst came to worst, they could always eat the beasts.
A cheering thought.  The one in the lead signaled to the other almost at once.
Darque nodded.  They DID have an instinct for these things.
     There were trees and uneven ground as soon as they left the road.  The horses
didn't seem to mind.  And then the slopes of hillsides, tipped this way and that.
     And then shelter from the wind and the rain, so suddenly that it was a shock.
Darque sensed enclosure, smelled the raw stone.  A cave, as promised.  He removed
himself from his horse, leaving it for his bodyguards to tend in whatever way seemed
appropriate, and turned to look back out at the storm.
     The cave was near the lake and had a view out across the water.  Just now, the
view of the storm was impressive, if one cared for storms.  Master Darque did not.
He found the sight of all that power going to waste on a mere natural phenomenon
offensive.  Especially now, when the Arcanum was in such a desperate state.
Especially when he could tell that a good portion of the power being expended in
sheets of violet lightning was magical.  Could Nishtar be so profligate?  No.  He
didn't have that much power to waste, whatever his parentage.  NO wizard had that
much power to waste.
     The image of a city that was not Morya hung over the raging waves, rippling like
a painting on silk.  Darque studied it for several minutes.  He had heard of the
"ghost city" of Lake Moruchei.  It was said to have appeared several times in the
past few years.  But it did nothing, portended nothing, and he had not pursued the
matter.  Still, since it was here in front of him, and he had nothing better to do
while he waited for the storm to cease, he would learn what he could.
     Definitely it was not Morya.  The buildings were of some white stone, marble,
probably, which most of Morya was not.  And the architecture was different.  Lighter,
more graceful.  More "elvish," as humans would say.  Slender towers, airy bridges
between them, fluttering banners.  That sort of thing.  No people were visible, but
they wouldn't be at this scale.  The Ghost City was probably as far away, visually,
as the center of the lake from here, ten or fifteen miles, he supposed.  The
lightning flashed around and between the towers.  It struck one of the delicate
bridges, which shattered.  Darque's eyebrows rose.  Amazing.  The storm, which was
definitely in the world of Ghea and Lake Moruchei, was ALSO in the world where the
Ghost City existed.  Because the city must exist, or it could not suffer destruction
of that kind.
     And if the city existed, somewhere, then it was worth knowing more about.  The
half-demon glanced around for a place to sit.  His two bodyguards were staring past
the horses, deeper into the cave; they were silhouetted against a greenish light.  If
there was power there, it was "cool"; he could sense nothing from the light.
     Curious.  Very curious.
     Darque made a gesture of warding, in case there was more to the light than he
could detect.  Well, there must be more to it, if it was there at all.  He left the
cave's mouth and moved past the dwarves and the horses, deeper into the green-lit
darkness.  The source of the light was easy to find, around the first bend.  It came
from a symbol inlaid into the wall of the cave.
     It was not a symbol he had ever seen before, and his knowledge was extensive.
There was a slight resemblance to some sigils he had seen in a Folstrom manuscript
that was four thousand years old.  But this was less cluttered and, he suspected,
more powerful.  What did it do, and why had no one seen it before now?
     Or had it been discovered in the past, and its discoverers destroyed?  Moryan
peasants might have found this cave, perhaps.  Darque snorted.  He had skills and
protections that no Moryan peasant could match.
     A bolt of lightning as brilliant as the sun struck behind him, wrapped in its
thunder, and filled the cave with white light, blinding him even though he was turned
away from it.  Tyre or Sidon cried out, and the horses screamed in terror.  Darque
knew that none of them had been injured, or he would smell the burned flesh.  He
waited for his eyes to recover.
     The brilliant afterimage faded, leaving darkness just brushed with red light
from behind.  A glance behind showed him that a tree just outside the cave was
burning.  Looking back into the depths of the cave there was only darkness.  The
symbol had vanished.
     No matter, it was burned into his memory.  He stretched out the toe of one small
foot and traced the symbol in the sandy floor of the cave.  Yes.  That was correct.
There was an extensive library in the palace in Xochithlan, more extensive than most
people knew.  He would look for the symbol there, in the oldest scrolls.
     This journey had seemed tedious in the beginning, a duty visit to his teams in
Morya, Xochithlan, and Illis.  Now...now he was looking forward to it.

     Uncle Wolf squinted at the sky.  It was pale a blue as a bird's egg, washed
clean by the storm.  The lake reflected it as a sheet of silver.  "You'd think
there'd never been a storm, not so much as a sprinkle of rain," he said.
     Ghost Dancer reined his pony to one side of the road, which was a smooth and
shining ribbon of mud.  He had already ridden into one such patch, and his horse's
legs were muddy to the knees.  "I wouldn't think it.  Why are we out this early?"
     "What's wrong with being up early?  You getting soft on the Isle, boy?  Or up
too late last night, partying?"
     "Uncle Wolf...."
     The old man shrugged.  "I don't know why you're here, but I'm out here because I
need to be.  I don't know why, exactly.  But I haven't survived forty-five years as a
shaman by not listening when my bones talk to me."
     Ghost Dancer looked around uneasily.  Fields and orchards were emerging from the
early mist on their right.  On the left, the surface of the lake rippled as ducks
settled into the water.  There was no breeze.  No other people out yet, nor any sign
of human activity beyond the road itself, and the fence rows.  It should be peaceful.
After a moment, he indicated a tree-clad hill near the shore.  "There's something
over there."
     "Not now," Wolf said.  "But there was something last night.  Or someone."  His
shoulders twitched.  "Something that made a ripple in the Spirit Land.  That's what
you're feeling."  He urged his horse toward the trees.  "That's what got us out
     "If it's gone, whatever it was, what can we do?" Ghost Dancer asked, following.
     The old shaman shrugged.  "We'll see."

     Master Darque glared at the horse.  "We'll abandon it."  Before Tyre could
speak, he added, "And yours and Sidon's as well.  I will convey us to Xochithlan
     "I thought that took a lot of magical power," Tyre said, looking up from his
examination of the horse's leg.  "You said you wanted to save it for--"
     "For the moment when I decide to use it.  That moment is now.  Get anything you
want off your saddles and we'll go now."  Darque frowned into the distance.  There
was no point in cursing the state of the Arcanum.  It had already been cursed, by the
Grey Witch's mismanagement.  "We're in line-of-sight of Spirit Ridge near Rocanis,
that will help.  We'll be in Xochithlan by tomorrow."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh my gosh, I'm Duelmaster!  Even though I lost my fight...something about
Deadfall going on vacation or something?  And I was Vice-Duelmaster so I got elected?
Oh well, I'm Duelmaster, hear me roar!
     Anybody who was not on the most popular AND least popular list, raise your hand?
I like being on both lists.  I feel very noticed.
     Boy oh boy, watch out for Bitter Vetch!  What am I saying? *I'd* better watch
out for him.  If Wishlist sits out the fights again, I'll probably fight a stand-in
but they might pit me against the Champions.
     I think I have the most fights of anybody here.  That's a good thing, isn't it?
     Well, I don't really have anything to say except the obvious:  We need more
teams around here.  You managers, if you have other manager friends looking for a
place to start a new team, you should tell them how lively and competitive Rocanis
is, what an exciting milieu (Royland sent me that word, he sends me a word for every
day) we live in, how they'd be crazy not to start up a team here.  That's right, lie
your tush off.
     Gotta go!  Luv ya, but my adoring public awaits.  I have to go be in a parade I

                                       I am Hedgehog, hear me roar!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ROCANIS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  REDHORSE now holds the 
crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for PRIVET, 
who flew up 13 points in the rankings after mashing RIRORNI ARCHER like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  It's a proud day for the YIELD stable, as their warrior, 
WISHLIST, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, 
but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad REDHORSE?  Big bad REDHORSE.  
Big bad REDHORSE.  ROCANIS' afraid of the big bad REDHORSE.  Tra la la la la!  And 
you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause YIELD beats feet every 
time REDHORSE smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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.  See ya next time I'm on this 
circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

find it to listen to the echoes, though. -- Deadfall

Glass Joe -- Well, so much for being neighborly and not busting you up because we
don't have any good glassworkers around.  See if I'm nice to you again! -- Bitter

Bald Bull -- Ah...I take it your middle name isn't Samson? -- Candy Apple

King Hippo -- I knew a hippo once, but she was really mean.  Probably a witch.  And
she didn't LIKE it when someone called her a hippo, but hey, she had the hips! --
Large Dog

Eats Grass -- And may it give you the runs. -- Rotten Core

Deadfall -- (big, big grin) Sorry about that!  At least you don't have to write a
column this time, it's Hedgehog's turn. -- Javelino, safe and sound on the Isle

Bitter Vetch -- Sure, sure, I believe you. -- Javelino

Rotten Core -- Bwaaa ha ha!  Nothing like watching people fall on their faces!  Hoof
and horn, I love this job! -- Eats Grass

Well, I did a public service--that persistent beggar won't be bothering anybody for a
while--but what are the thanks I get?  Anybody? -- Shank's Pony

Mr. Sandman -- I won and worked myself back up to an even-steven record.  Better than
being a loser.  Thanks, guy. -- Pronghorn

On Jhans turn number 476 (due on Feb. 16, 2005) the Second Annual kLk St. Valentine's
Massacre Kill Contest will begin.  The rules are simple; the team with the most kills
on the last turn wins.  Last year's winner was Shocking Toad.  Can he repeat?  Could
DOOMcorps crush all challengers?  Will the kLk prevail?  Or will you be the
independent manager to show that alliances aren't all that?  Come on to Jhans and
let's find out!
     Prizes are:  1st.  Renaming of a Dark Arena monster and five roll-up
                        certificates or $25.00 deposited in your account.
                  2nd.  Renaming of a Stand-In monster.
     Come on and celebrate the Delarquan way!
