Near Jhans:

     Barudai was not in a position to look across the river at Jhans.  He was on the
other side of the hill, and near the bottom.  He did not want to see Jhans, and even
more, he did not want anybody from Jhans to see him.  The Rirorni considered himself
a scout, but he knew that many people--from Jhans--might well call him a spy.  And
nobody like spies much.  They probably wouldn't believe him if he said that his...
scouting had no object that was hostile to Jhans.  He wouldn't have believed it in
their place, even though he knew that this time it was the truth.  In fact, if he got
his information back to the gathering of shamans near Rocanis in time for them to
act, his mission would be of great benefit to Jhans and all southern Alastari.
     That prospect was not as comforting as he had hoped.  He still had to get back
to Rocanis, after all, and the renegade's men were hunting him.
     He studied as much of the sky as he could see from his shelter under an
overhanging rock.  Definitely a storm coming, and not a little one, either.  This
would be the kind of storm that menaced the life of anyone fool enough to be out in
it.  Hail like fists.  Floods of rain.  Lightning like the end of the world.  He
tried to back farther into his inadequate shelter, but his horse was behind him--not
a foolish beast!--pressed against the slanting stone.  Still, when he wasn't moving,
he was leaving no tracks, and the renegade's men would have to take shelter somewhere
also--or die under the flail of the storm.
     The clouds covered the sky, blocking stars and moon, but lightning shredded the
darkness.  The rain held off.  To Barudai, that meant that when the waters finally
came, they would be devastating.  Every little fold of the plain would be a roaring
stream.  Flat lands would be lakes.  Travel would be impossible, tonight and for days
to come.
     The last was an uneasy thought.  The renegade's men could have magical aids;
there were shamans in his camp, too.  He had glimpsed a feather cloak in one tent,
and that meant flying.  A man could fly above the waters.  Where as he, Barudai, had
only his own two feet, and his horse.
     Movement caught his eye, and he stared out anxiously.  If one of the renegade's
assassins found him here--  His sword was in his hand as he searched for an attacker.
     Wheeling below the clouds, dodging the lightning, bird-shaped but without a
bird's grace.  Impossible to judge size against the sky, but he thought it was too
big for any mortal bird.  Trust the renegade to inspire men to dare even such a
storm!  The flying figure circled again and aimed toward the hill, that much Barudai
could see.  And it was getting larger, which meant lower.
     The clouds burst like a ruptured waterskin, cutting visibility to nothing.  Even
a true bird would have trouble flying in that...wouldn't it?  Yes, of course.  There
was as much water as air in the sky now, it was hard to breathe.  Flying must be
impossible.  If the flyer crashed to the ground, all would be well.  But if it
managed to land....
     He stared at the blind wall of falling water.  Sometimes it turned bright white
with lightning, other times it was black.  Nothing was visible beyond it.  Nothing to
do but wait.  He hated waiting.
     The ground trembled under his feet, and his horse screamed, barely audible over
the storm.  The animal's warmth was gone from behind him, replaced by a cold wind.
     Turning slowly, shaking with cold and fear, Barudai stared into a tunnel where
there had been solid rock before.  It was not completely dark, though the light was
faint, without color or visible source.  Unfamiliar symbols crawled on walls as
smooth as glass, colored purple, and poison green, and red as blood.
     In the depth of the tunnel, shadows moved.


     It was a clear day when they stepped through the Gate, unusual for this early in
the spring.  Ghost Dancer sat down immediately and began to rummage in his pack for
food and drink.
     "Leave it," Wolf said.  "We'll eat in Rocanis, and we may need our travel-fare
     Ghost Dancer considered protesting that he was hungry NOW and could always buy
more jerked meat and dried fruit down in Rocanis, but the old shaman didn't look like
a man prepared to tolerate argument right now.  Wolf didn't look like a man prepared
to yield to the needs of the flesh for any reason right now.  Didn't HE ever get
hungry and thirsty?  Ghost Dancer sighed and closed his pack, stood, and followed the
old man down the trail toward Rocanis.
     Although it was hard to believe Wolf was old, even with his white hair.  The
shaman was setting a hard pace, and he seemed as tireless as the wind.  It made Ghost
Dancer aware that he had become somewhat soft while living on the Isle.  True, he had
sparred every day, and with warriors better than he was, but this kind of endurance
test had not been part of his life in years.  It was the boast of the Maengedai that
when raiding, they could go forty or fifty miles a day on their own feet.  He
couldn't do that today.  Still, the man--or demon--that they were pursuing couldn't
be up for such a long run, either.  And he (Master Darque) was barred from using the
Spirit Land as a shortcut just as Wolf and himself now were.
     They walked in silence for several minutes, picking a careful way down the slope
from Spirit Ridge.  Ghost Dancer studied the town below, a frown taking shape on his
face.  "Aren't there a lot more tents than usual down there?"
     "Yes."  Wolf's voice was hard, angry.  "And more of them than should be are
flying shaman's ribbons."
     "A council?"  There hadn't been a shaman's council for ten, maybe fifteen years,
maybe twenty.  Not since sometime around the Rirorni War.  It took something dire to
draw shamans from all the tribes into a meeting; without the use of the Spirit Land,
some of them would have to travel for months to get back to their tribes.  "What
could have spawned this?"
     "Something bad."  Wolf snorted.  "Something that anyone who paid attention would
have KNOWN was coming, but most of them would rather hide their heads under their
blankets and hope it would go away."
     Knowing his tutor, Ghost Dancer figured this meant that Wolf had warned them of
some impending danger and been ignored.  He searched his own memory.  If Wolf had
mentioned a danger to him, and he'd forgotten about it...but he couldn't recall any
such warning.  "What is the danger?"
     "Have you heard of the Black Swords of Mytori?"
     "Just a bare mention," Ghost Dancer admitted.  "Not even the legends have
anything about them."  He considered what he knew of the cult of Mytori Iron-Hand and
winced.  Any sword "blessed" by Mytori would be very bad news indeed.  "What about
your pursuit of Master Darque and the sigil?"
     The old shaman's hands clenched and unclenched.  When he answered, it sounded
like he was talking through teeth that were also clenched.  "It will have to wait.  I
swore an oath to serve the Maengedai, and I cannot in good conscience ignore the
danger of a Black Sword."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hi everyone,

     It's me again.  (smiling)  I see they've fixed up the chair.   It's
reupholstered, and the carved initials are filled in with wood putty.  Thank you,
Khel.  Teal, that's a pretty color for a DM throne.  And I really like the feather
     Well, Mechanism challenged me but he was no match for my superb defensive
abilities.  And you know what?  The Commission says I'm not quite clever enough to
use my weapon effectively.  What do they know?
     I still haven't gotten invited to the Isle, though.  How long must I sit on this
lovely teal chair?
     My teammate, Eats Grass, brought up a point worth considering:  the Cult Member
on the arena stand-in team.  Why is he there?  Did he commit any crime other than to
wear a yellow sheet and beg for money outside the bar?  So I used my political
influence as DM, and looked into the question.  Here is what arena manager Khel
Rojida told me:  There is a club of gladiator wanna-bees called the Yellow Toga cult.
They take turns volunteering to be on the stand-in team in the hope that their talent
will be recognized by local gladiatorial managers.  I guess the one Eats fought
didn't make it, and he has to go to the back of the line now.
     Well, I guess I'm fighting either Mechanism or Machine this time around.  You
know, I'd rather fight Privet.  If anyone could give me a run for my money...or,
being a defensive warrior, maybe I should say a "circles slowly, studying his
opponent" for my money, it would be Privet.  Though I've got to say Mechanism almost
beat me in the second minute.  But I managed to hang on.  That's what we do.
     I am Hedgehog, hear me roar!

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ROCANIS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for GLASS JOE, who pummelled 
MACHINE, to pocket 17 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, GLASS JOE was 
winsome, after beating MACHINE and seeing him lose 12 points.  HEDGEHOG successfully 
staved off a grab for the roses by PRIEST OF MYTORI of ROCANIS.  Does ROCANIS have no 
one talented enough to dethrone her?  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in ROCANIS avoid PUNCH-OUT!.  The warriors of 
PUNCH-OUT! found their efforts at combat frustrated as LOST SOULS apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
BITTER VETCH is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't BAD APPLES proud!  
Take heed ROCANIS, of the unprincipled action of MECHANISM.  By challenging BITTER 
VETCH, 21 points below him, MECHANISM besmirches the noble art of dueling.  MECHANISM 
overcame BITTER VETCH with a point difference of 21.  So this is what ROCANIS calls a 
duel.  This will make an interesting tale.  DARK HEART challenged PIEFACE!  Who says 
LOST SOULS are just a bunch of wimps!  DARK HEART of LOST SOULS kept his wits as he 
bested PIEFACE.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ROCANIS is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ROCANIS?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Mechanism -- By hoof and horn, look what you've done!  I'm the Duelmaster again!  I
can't get away from the darned title!  Well, you just have to challenge me again and
take the darned thing back.  With all those skills you learned, you should be able to
do it.  Adjust your challenge strategy to deal with scum and MAKE that challenge,
boy. -- Hedgehog
P.S.  Or let your brother Machine do it, if he's not a Lunger.
P.P.S.  I can't believe I made the popularity list.  The spectators at Rocanis Arena
have strange tastes.

Glass Joe -- Well aimed and nicely fought. -- Shanks Pony

Large Dog -- How did you get to be a Bad Apple?  Or I should say, how did you get an
arena name like that?  Dogs don't even like apples, at least unless they're stuffed
with meat or cheese.

Rotten Core -- Good desperation strategy.  I'd have won if you hadn't started
fighting like a cornered rat. -- Pronghorn

At least the Cult Member was able to teach me a skill...what are cult members doing
on the stand-in team, anyway?  Prisoners captured in the Rirorni War, I can
understand.  They were our enemies (though they're getting pretty old).  But a cult
member?  Are we punishing people for joining odd religions now? -- Eats Grass

Machine -- You win your matches with us with such mechanical regularity that I do
seriously wonder about your nature.  It SAYS you're Shagornan, but *I* think you're a
golem.  Refute that if you can. -- Bitter Vetch

Doom from the South?  Ha!  Meet Victory from the North, aka... Privet

Yul -- I really want to rip your shins to shreds.  If you'd just STAND STILL.... --
Large Dog

Pronghorn -- Ah, the old "rope them around the horns" trick worked!  Excellent.  I
have heard that if you lay an antelope's head on its side on the ground, stand on one
horn, and grab the other and heave upward with all your strength, you can split the
skull wide open.  I've always wanted to try that.... -- Rotten Core

Kid Quick -- Well, at least you WERE quick. -- Pieface

Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!

Amendment for "Fratsfas Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
