On the plains:

     Redfox turned in his saddle to look back toward Rocanis, but it had already
fallen out of sight behind the curve of the last hills.  There was nothing to see
except that rolling of the grassy land in all directions, nothing moving that he
could see.  A bird, maybe, at the limit of his vision.  He twitched his shoulders,
not quite a shrug.  "I think it's probably safe to talk now," he said.  He raised an
eyebrow at Barudai.
     Barudai, who called himself a scout and had functioned as a spy at need,
shrugged.  "We have to take some chances anyway," he said.  "But for the moment, yes,
probably no spies to hear us here."  He looked at Redfox, the oldest of the four
Rirorni.  "The shamans put you in charge.  What is our plan?"
     The older man laughed.  It sounded bitter.  "Plan?  You can't have a plan
without some facts."  He sighed and rubbed his face.  "Sorry, not your fault.  I
suppose we head for the last known location of the damned sword."
     "Taegskel?"  Shanks Pony sat a little straighter in his saddle.  "I've always
wanted to see that place."
     "Get a spyglass and turn it wrong way around, then look at a midden or an
anthill...or both," Ghost Dancer suggested.  "I have seen it, and I am not eager to
return there."
     "Then why go?  We're all volunteers," Shanks Pony began.  The other three
laughed.  He looked from one to another.  "We're not?"
     Ghost Dancer smiled a little.  "You are."
     "But--"
     "I've been on an 'adventure' before," Redfox said.
     "Right, that's why Uncle Wolf wanted you to go.  I heard him say so," Pony said.
     "Yeah, but you didn't hear me volunteering, did you?"
     "That's a selfish attitude," Shanks Pony said, but he sounded unsure of it.
     "No.  There are tens of thousands of gladiators on the Isle," Ghost Dancer said.
"Packed in like sardines in some parts of Talahya, and it would be GOOD for them to
get out and adventure, instead of leaving it to us few."
     Redfox laughed suddenly.  "No, if that's what they--or their managers--want to
do, I say let 'em do it.  They aren't hurting anyone else.  The Grey Witch seems to
be okay with it.  As for us...we're probably going to get into deep trouble at some
point, but today the sun is shining, it isn't cold or hot, we've got a lot of open
country to cover and good horses to cover it on, so let's enjoy--  Look out!"
     At which point Redfox, with better reflexes than many warriors his age could
boast, threw himself off his horse as a dark shape came screaming down out of the
sky.  The other three hit the ground seconds later, and their horses bolted, leaving
them afoot.
     Shanks Pony rolled over, trying to drag his sword free of its scabbard, and his
eyes widened.  It was big for a bird, but it had never hatched out of any natural
egg.  A flying war machine, maybe, made by a demented magician.  Vaguely bird-shaped,
claws like grappling hooks, even at the outer joint of the wings, and its wing-
feathers glittered along their edges like sword blades.  At least there was only one,
and the other three members of their party might be able to kill it while it was
destroying its first target.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

An arena stand in it was.  Sorry about that, Kung-Fu Master.  My scimitar was
mightier than your hand, I guess.  As of right now the only active warrior in range
of me is my teammate, so it looks like I'll be fighting the weaponless wonder once
again.  Till next time.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ROCANIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, GET, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see IN HIDING win a fight and gain 27 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, IN HIDING beat GODGET and GODGET lost 24 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  WISHLIST challenged ROCANIS' Duelmaster for a shot at the throne. 
And if variety is the spice of life, ROCANIS may be getting bland, as ZIPPER stays 
top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you 
this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, ROCANIS?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  BAD 
APPLES, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was GET.  Ha ha ha ha!  GRAY COLT was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have VESTIGIAL TAIL in a challenge, going down 8 points 
for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought VESTIGIAL TAIL showed great skill and promise 
when he overcame WINDSWEPT.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ROCANIS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ROCANIS to get a drink than The Wanton 
Troll!  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

Temb -- Sorry. -- JE

Eats Grass -- You bent me real good, wait no you didn't.  You just sat there.  You
should try swinging back once in a while.  I guess you don't really need to when I
can't hit you. -- Bent

Pieface -- Wow did I get lucky. -- Dale

Windswept -- I gotta stop drinking right before my fights. -- Meabeer

Evilution -- Welcome! -- JE, manager of Rescue Rangers and Get

Philanthropists -- Welcome to you as well!  Although I suspect you are only here for
the tourney prepping. -- JE

Godget -- I knew all that.  (reflective pause)  If I knew all that, and you didn't,
why didn't *I* win? -- Large Dog

It -- No, can't say I do. -- Jonna Thane

Dale -- I'll get you, see if I don't!  Chipmunk pie! -- Pieface

Gray Colt -- AND, I can kill houseplants. -- Treekiller

Wisdom Teeth -- You think wisdom is Bad? -- Thorn

Dale -- Not a bit of sense.  He likes having pies thrown at him.  He collects them.
-- Jonna Thane

Chip -- If my tooth WASN'T okay, I would return it to the manufacturer for a refund
AND a replacement. -- Pieface

Gray Colt -- I demonstrated lots of stuff.  You weren't paying attention. -- Jonna
Thane

Temb -- Sorry to spoil your perfect record, but at least you learned something from
it. -- Yul

Bent -- I scummed you!  Gee.  I didn't think 2-1-3 was a very scummy strategy.  You
need to work on your endurance. -- Eats Grass

Temb -- It's all right.  I'm willing to take on taller opponents.  I'm an equal
opportunity endurance event. -- Eats Grass

Treekiller -- Ow.  It's so hard to put together a strategy from flat on one's back in
the sand.  I need to work on that. -- Gray Colt

Aldaldon -- You have a funny name.  To make it even funnier, you could change it to
Aldaladla. -- Red Filly

Meabeer -- I LIKE your name!  While you're up, get ME a beer too! -- Windswept (not a
sissy despite the name.  The first thing my mother set eyes on when I was born was a
shelf of romance novels.)

Treekiller -- Maybe you like gladiating better after a win? -- Windswept

The Olympics have arrived!

The Mordanti Olympics, having been gone for six years, have returned to the Mordanti
Alliance, sponsored by Amicitia Primoris.  Teams have competed against each other for
recognition and notoriety four times in the past.  It is far past time for the fifth
Mordanti Olympics to be held.  The Mordanti Olympics shall be held in the Mordant
arena (DM-1) from May 1st (T544) through Oct 30 (T557).  There will be a
'registration period' lasting until T543, where teams will be allowed to register by
activating in Mordant and declaring their participation in the personals.  Rules will
be posted in the Mordant arena (DM-1) newsletter no later than T543, but shall be
available online before then.  An announcement will be made as to where they will be
posted.  Prizes will be awarded to the winners.
