Rocanis:

     "No, you don't understand," Barudai the Scout said.  "This is what I found out,
and no one takes time to LISTEN.  Volundagh THOUGHT he had the Black Sword.  But--"
     Rain Caller, the old shaman of the southern Rirorni tribe of the Haimgedai,
stared.  "He LOST it?"
     The young scout shrugged.  "No one knows exactly what happened, but the priest
of Mytori who was sent to get it...didn't come back with it."
     "Did he come back at all?" Uncle Wolf asked.
     "No.  But the other priests don't think he took the Sword himself and, er, did
anything.  They didn't seem to know whether he couldn't find it, or had it taken from
him after he did find it, or just, well, lost it himself."
     "Hmm."  Wolf half-shut his eyes, listening to things that only another shaman
could hear.  "The Sword is awake, there is no question there."
     The other shamans, Rain Caller and Windrider, nodded.  "We hear it, too."
     "But it is not yet...active.  Has not chosen its Hand and gone to war,"
Windrider added.  "There is time to find it and stop it."
     "Find it, yes.  We must, of course," Wolf agreed.  "As to stopping it...how?  We
can't destroy the thing, it's the sword of a god.  It is beyond the strength of any
mortal."
     "Bind it and hide it--" Rain Caller began.
     "That is what was done before, according to the tradition I learned," Wolf said.
"It does not seem to have worked."
     "It worked for a while, for three generations," the older shaman said.  "That
may be all we can do, and it is better than doing nothing."
     "Better than letting Bluesnake get hold of it," Windrider added.
     After a moment of silent resistance, Wolf sighed and bowed his head.  "This is
true," he admitted.  "I could wish for a way to make a complete end to it, but there
is none that we could encompass."  He turned to the scout.  "What have you learned
that might suggest where to look for the sword?"
     The young man shrugged, looking uncomfortable with what he would have to say.
"It has been said that it was found near Taegskel some years ago, and then lost
again, or taken into hiding."
     The others all nodded.  Taegskel was a den of thieves on the coast south of
Bonsur; there were many renegade and refugee Rirorni there.  A few years ago, there
had been some very strange rumors about the place, but nothing obvious had come of
them, and the talk had died down.
     "After that, last summer it would have been, talk started about Volundagh and
what a great leader he could be, how he could unite the tribes and sweep the
Alastarians away--"
     "We tried that, fifteen years ago," Rain Caller said.  "It did not prove so
easy."
     "People want to believe it," Wolf said.  "And the young men now, those who are
seeking to establish their names, they don't remember that time."
     Barudai shrugged.  He barely remembered it himself, he had been no more than
five summers when the War had ended.  "The priests of Mytori said that a sign had
been given that Volundagh was blessed by their god--you heard?"
     "It was what started our worries again," Rain Caller said.  "We--I, at least,
hoped that the rumors of the Sword before were just talk."
     "It has still been no more than talk," Barudai said.  He sounded unconvinced, as
though he was only saying those words to be fair, not because he believed them.
     "So you did not see the Black Sword," Wolf said, "and you believe that no one
else in Volundagh's camp has seen it?"  When the scout nodded, he went on, "We must
find it before they do, and you may be sure they are looking."
     "If we go rushing off, it will look suspicious.  To Bluesnake if to not others.
We dare not raise questions," Rain Caller said.
     "WE cannot go rushing off," Wolf said, baring his teeth in something too hard to
be a smile.  "But...if a few gladiators were to go off, who would notice?  Gladiators
do that.  Especially those who have become Lord Protectors."  He fixed his eyes on
Redfox, who had been silent up to now.  "If you, and...two or three others, were to
go off, who would notice or care, eh?"
     "I knew this was coming," Redfox muttered.  He sighed.  "Okay.  I could probably
find some others.  Shanks Pony here in Rocanis--he's too young to realize what he
would be getting into, or too reckless, but he's graduated from the arena and is
available.  And I might find somebody else here, or in Trocar, or....  Hmm.  Yeah, I
can find the men, young enough to be willing, old enough to be of some use.  Where
would we go?"
     "Start at Taegskel.  You will have to track the sword by rumor, and by the signs
of its passage--by the men it has killed."  Wolf glanced around and bared his teeth
again.  "And take Ghost Dancer.  He is no shaman yet, but he knows enough to be of
use."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

First of all I am sorry I haven't written a column until now.  I've been really busy
lately, being undefeated sure garners a lot of attention around here.  Speaking of
undefeated, I am really not unbeatable.  In fact I just lost a few fights in the
tourney.  I guess it helps to have friends that are willing to run interference
allowing me to fight stand-ins.  Till next time.

Zipper

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ROCANIS this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  On their very first turn, EVILUTION had a 3-2-0, 
and with this kind of luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to ROCANIS.  And let's 
see, TOE fought ROCANI TURNCOAT and gained 15 points and contributed to GET's 2-3-0.  
TEMB has lost to YUL, falling 10 points, while helping make RESCUE RANGERS a 4-1-0 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ZIPPER remains 
ROCANIS' top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I 
saw last night, cramped under the table at The Grub & Rub Bar and Bistro?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the YIELD stable was the most avoided team 
this turn.  Come on ROCANIS, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding YIELD more than 
any other team we find RESCUE RANGERS.  ROCANIS, are we going to accept, or respect 
this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this turn was BAD APPLES' warrior 
LARGE DOG.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that ROCANIS has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ROCANIS and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ROCANIS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

but then I thought about it.  I figured what would be the sense in that. -- Dale

Yul -- Well done. -- Godget, by the way that o should be an a.

Contraband -- I really didn't want to fight you or Wishlist.  Especially because of
those kills you guys have.  See, until I am on the Isle I don't really want to die.
Good thing the fight went in my favor.  Maybe once I get my invite I'll challenge you
and give you a proper chance to have the throne. -- Zipper

Rironi Saboteur -- I thought my weapon looked a little rusty. -- Chip

Eats Grass -- That wasn't really fair I guess.  I am a lot taller than you. -- Temb

Large Dog -- Good thing I can bend really well, you know because you're large and
all. -- Bent

Rirorni Soldiers -- Uhh, what the heck?  How come two of you got to fight against the
one of me?  That really isn't fair.  Oh.  I won.  Never mind. -- Toe

Eats Grass -- I guess it makes sense if you put the team name first.  Like Get Bent,
Get Toe, Get It?  My manager thinks he is clever or something. -- Toe

Toe -- I am clever, I just haven't gotten the hang of this managing thing yet. -- JE

Pieface -- I don't really like chicken.  And I am sorry about your tooth.  It still
looks okay though.  No really it does. -- Chip

Godget -- That was a bad matchup for you.  I'm glad I didn't kill you. -- Yul

Temb -- Nice fight.  You have a lot of potential, and not as a scum. -- Eats Grass

Jonna Thane -- With so much more experience than me, I'd think you would have taught
me at least one skill.  Poo! -- Gray Colt

In Hiding -- You weren't really trying to kill me, were you? -- Red Filly

Treekiller -- Good hit. -- Windswept

Wishlist -- Well, gods, man, THAT was not on mine! -- Ghost of Privet

Bent -- If that is what you want to get, I would be GLAD to help you!  Delighted. --
Large Dog

Dale -- You sneaky little crunchy critter!  May you slip in the whipped cream! --
Pieface

Gray Colt -- That gets you back down where you should be.  These meteoric rises, you
know, are so often accompanied by meteoric declines.... -- Jonna Thane

Windswept -- If this is gladiating, I don't think I like it after all. -- Treekiller

Shanks Pony -- Not the Spirit Gate right off, I think.  First, cross-country to a
town full of cutthroats.  What fun, eh? -- Redfox
