Zuwayza:

     Tankesh parried the guard captain's thrust and riposted, cutting the man's sword
arm.  Minor wound, wouldn't stop him, wouldn't even slow him down.  Damn.  He parried
again.  This guardsman was too good, he had no business being this good!  Off to the
side, Kasarya gave a sudden squeak, and the sounds of struggle there ceased.  Tankesh
still couldn't turn to look, but he had the uneasy feeling that one of the other
guardsmen was going to sneak up on him from the side, if he couldn't take this one
out of the fight in a hurry.  The guard captain knew it, too, and pressed him harder.
     There was a soft explosion, a nearly silent puff of air, but the ground shifted
under his feet.  Tankesh sprang back, disengaging automatically, and the guard
captain did likewise.  Both men looked around quickly.
     At first glance, nothing seemed changed.  At second glance...nothing seemed
quite the same.  The building Tankesh was facing across the street, of sooty red
brick imperfectly plastered, turned browner and somewhat cleaner, though still
imperfectly plastered.  The air, usually cool and damp even in summer, was suddenly
hot and dry.  Excited voices called out in a language that sounded like Akhaddic
but...not quite the same; Tankesh didn't recognize many of the words he was hearing.
He stared at the guard captain, who stared back at him, wide-eyed.
     The ground rocked again, and there was a sound, or not quite a sound, like
ripping silk.  Dirty red brick and damp, cool air.
     Before the guardsmen could react to the second change, Tankesh whirled and
grabbed Kasarya's arm, jerking her away from the man holding her, and plunged down a
convenient alley...which he didn't remember being there before, but he wasn't going
to look this gift horse in the mouth.  With any luck, the guardsmen would be too
shaken to pursue them.  Not that GOOD luck had been a prominent feature of his day so
far.  Which meant it was about time for that to change, dammit.  He was due some good
luck!  The alley turned sharply and plunged into a tunnel formed where the second
stories of the buildings on either side reached out to touch each other.  He watched
alertly for open doors or gates, anything to get them into more shelter and
concealment, because the guardsmen would have recovered quickly, and he thought he
could hear them behind, stumbling over barrels in the alley and pounding on doors.
No, wait, there hadn't BEEN any barrels in the alley....
     Worry about that later.
     The immediate need was to get away.
     The alley took another sharp turn and opened out into a little courtyard filled
with harsh, hot sunlight.
     Not Zuwayza.
     But there were enemies here, just the same.  Men in robes and turbans and the
dark, hawk-nosed faces characteristic of the Karnhorns turned at the sound of running
feet, hands going automatically to the curved swords that each wore at his waist.
Tankesh darted sideways, dragging Kasarya after him, in the hopes of finding an exit
or at least putting a wall at his back.  Tripped over something--he heard the sharp
yapping of a dog as he fell.  His head slammed against something else, hard, and that
was all he knew.

Iaye and beyond:

     Goff's boat was not what they'd expected.  Raoul admitted to himself that the
big manager had looked like someone who would own a rowboat for the fishing.  But
this...was a worthy vessel.  It had a mast and sails--probably all with technical
names, not that Raoul cared.  It was a trim vessel and fit to cross the Trier, which
was what counted.  It actually had a crew of two who did things to the sails, took
them up and down, changed their angle, and so on.  Sailor stuff.  They seemed to
enjoy what they were doing, but as far as he was concerned, a boat was
transportation, and that was all.
     "How far is it to Istoreth?" Raoul asked.
     "A hundred twenty-five, maybe a hundred fifty miles, I haven't measured."  Goff
shrugged.  "The wind's against us, it always is this time of year, but even so, it
shouldn't take more than a few days."

Istoreth:

     "But this is the goods!" Peranis protested.  He knew his voice was getting
shrill, but he couldn't help it.  These S'varni were maddening.  They didn't CARE.
"With this book," he urged, trying to speak more calmly, even though this was the
third of the city's princes he'd made his pitch to, "you'd have the entire Andorian
intelligence network under your hand, and the power to coerce many of the Andorian
lords into obedience, as well."
     Lord Haluren, a FARMER, for the gods' sake, the Sealord and the Spelllord having
already turned him down, shrugged.  "Why would I want the Andorian intelligence
network?  Would it bring rain in season, or prevent the malformed births of sheep and
cattle?"
     "But..." Peranis swallowed, "but you could sell it to the Osksi, if nothing
else!  They'd give you a good price for it, more than I'm asking."
     "Sell it to the Osksi yourself, then," Haluren advised.  "I understand the winds
are favorable for sailing to Osksi at this season.  Have a good trip."
     Peranis found himself outside the door, with no clear notion of what he was
going to do next.  His dreams of wealth and power were not materializing.  The Black
Book WAS valuable, but if he couldn't find a buyer...he wasn't sure that he could use
that information safely himself.  Certainly not from a base in Andoria.  There were
enough assassins left that his survival would be measured in days, weeks at the most,
once he made his first approach.  Probably not in Osksi, either.  They were the
enemies of Andoria, but they had their own code of honor and nothing but disgust for
a traitor, which is how they'd see him.  He reconsidered his original plan, to take
the Book to the Karnhorns, then shook his head.  Better to leave them out of it.
They had no honor at all, and if someone--Kaliv Jhuizkhal of Kurukar, for example--
decided he wanted the Black Book, he would simply order Peranis' death and take it.
     Which meant staying in Skaithvarn.  But not in Istoreth, apparently.  Well,
there must be someone, some prince of a small kingdom who would like to increase his
power.  Maybe a prince with a daughter he could marry.  Yes, that had appeal.
     With renewed confidence in his glorious future, the assassin set out for the
waterfront.  He would find a boat to take him south along the peninsula, to one of
the other kingdoms.

Zuwayza or Somewhere Else:

     "Ah, you are awake then?"
     The voice seemed unreasonably cheerful, given the way Tankesh's head was
pounding.  It was speaking Akhaddic...of a sort.  Understandable, since it was
speaking slowly, or maybe the odd accent was becoming more familiar.  He opened his
eyes cautiously.  He was in a dimly lit room, on a sort of divan or daybed such as
the Karnhorns used.  The walls were pale above, and something simple and dark below,
painted plaster, maybe.  Plainer than the walls in any upper class Karnhorn house
he'd seen.  A two-branched candlestick of bronze provided the light.  The man sitting
beside him and holding the candlestick had the expected dark, hawk-nosed face,
typical Karnhorn.  But he was wearing an unfamiliar sort of headgear, a cap like an
inverted flowerpot, of black patterned with gold, and he had a swathe of green cloth
twisted around the base of it.
     "Where...?"
     "In the house of Taran in'Dalbi, a merchant, and fortunate for you that you
occurred here, and not in the hands of some worshipper of bloody Jakarran.  We see
few Elves here in Wazara, and most view them with deep suspicion.  Taran is a more
cosmopolitan man, however, why, he has even been to Ys!  He knows well that an Elf is
just a man, and not some dark spirit come to work harm."  The man's mouth twitched
between mustache and pointed beard.  "Very fortunate you are.  For if you had been
received next door, in the house of Zaldin in'Varash, you might be stretched on an
altar by now!"
     Tankesh frowned and tried to heave himself up on one elbow.  The room shimmied
around him alarmingly, but he could see his sword lying on a side table, which told
him that he wasn't a prisoner here.  Wherever "here" was.  "Where?" he demanded
again.
     "Ah, of course.  I was forgetting for a moment that you are a...Visitor.
Wazara, as I said, capital of Valkoril.  This is one of the most famous ports on the
Middle Sea, the last port on the Southern Shore before one comes to the Pillars of
the Sun."
     "Visitor?"
     "From another time, or another world."  The man waved one hand negligently.  "I
am no philosopher to probe into such details, but a mere physician.  But you are not
the first Visitor to come to Valkoril of late, nor even the first to visit Golden
Wazara, so once he had recovered from the shock of your arrival, Taran understood
what was happening."
     "More'n I do," Tankesh muttered.
     "This is your first experience at Traveling?  Then it is no wonder you are
confused, especially if you have known no other Travelers."  The physician tapped his
knee thoughtfully with the fingers of one hand, then nodded.  "Very well, then, let
me see if I can explain--so far as my understanding goes.  The worlds that sprang
forth from the First Cause are as numerous as the grains of sand in Southern Waste,
as like and as different from each other as such grains may be.  When the wind swirls
over the Waste, grains of sand may strike one another, move from one place to lie in
different company, whatever metaphor you wish."  His fingers flicked in a dismissing
gesture.  "At such times of contact, Travel becomes possible, by will or by chance--
in your case, I assume that it must have been chance."  He raised an eyebrow
inquiringly.
     Tankesh started to nod and thought better of it.  "Yes.  The woman with me, what
happened to her?"
     The man shrugged.  "When you fell, you lost your grip on her hand.  At once, the
road that you had Traveled together split.  I do not know whether she would return to
the world where your journey began, or go on to some other on her own."
     Someone tapped on the door to the room.
     The doctor rose at once and crossed to it, opening it a hands' breadth.  "What
news, Taran?"
     "The worst, Russem!  We must get rid of the fellow at once!"  The man in the
hallway had a gasping voice, or in the grip of strong emotion.  "Zaldin's pet
astrologer has worked out that there was an Occurrence, and he knows I must be
harboring a Visitor!"
     "Say rather, he suspects it, Taran.  But you are correct, the Visitor cannot
remain here any longer, unless he wishes to decorate an altar to Jakarran."  The
doctor glanced over his shoulder at Tankesh.  "We have neither the knowledge nor the
power to return you to your original world, but we shall send you to one who may
help.  But you must go at once, without delay--"
     A deep drumming sound echoed through the house.
     "That will be the Sultan's men--or the Temple Guards, even!--at the door," the
merchant muttered.  "I dare not refuse them entry."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARADI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always 
around the corner!  Witness how this week DEMONS OF DARKNESS 2 went 4-0-0 to move up 
8 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-1 record which WIMPS OF DEATH 
managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  
MICHAEL J'EH FOX caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested ERUPTION and was awarded 26 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, LUCIFEROUS HOPE put down WINKER X, causing him to lose 16 
points of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior 
on the challenge boards this week was none other than Duelmaster CROW himself.  
Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster CROW TV challenged ONOMOTAPOEIA 
last week in a match to decide the fate of the throne.  Not for nothing has CROW in 
the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat 
skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained 
their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  ARADI, city of gladiators!  Mighty 
among the names of thy guilds is WILD CARDS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in 
the weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed 
to find any of WIMPS OF DEATH last week.  Busy avoiding WILD CARDS?  A match that 
raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that BOWGUSS AIMS posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized KLUTOG.  The results, you ask?  Well, 
the firebrand BOWGUSS AIMS overcame KLUTOG.  Remember warriors, this is the 
discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some guilds are strict but few are as heartless as BROKEN SPIRITS.  
Witness, last turn they sent SORBERE POENA, a 6-3-0 fighter, to the Dark Arena!  The 
warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past 
week ERUPTION, at 15-21-0, departed ARADI forever.  My sources at BLACK FRIARS stable 
claim they've never seen the guild bitterer.  This as a result of the untimely demise 
of TROILUS.  Beware AMBITIOUS GUARD!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in ARADI as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Cordelia -- You're a man!  (snap, snarl, bite)  You shouldn't be a man with a name
like that!  (growl, snap) -- Teacup Terrier, another good dog who likes things
regular

Nuln -- Mustard's like fleas, you think you've gotten rid of it, and it comes back
when you aren't look.  And sometimes when you are looking.  Now they're making
mustard leg warmers, not that mustard has cold legs. -- Spot
P.S.  Not that I understand these finer points.  After all, I'm just a dog.

Nuln -- Don't go all frenchy on us!  A chaos lord is one thing, but a FRENCH chaos
lord is something else altogether. -- Merven Dree, Esq.

Ed. -- Exactly. -- Arenamaster Harkon

     Um, right. -- Ed.

You'll all note that NO ONE (except Ghoti, and we know about him!) was thinking about
TOGS last time.  That seems to be a sign. -- Merven Dree, Esq.
P.S.  And Harkon only took the EASY kill.

Mervie baby, all kills are easy for me. -- Arenamaster Harkon, Angel of Death

Onomotapoeia -- You have GOT to be kidding me!  38 minutes on my challenge and you in
plate armor?!?  And I was running 1-1-1 P and face planted?!  I QUIT!  Sultan QUITS!
-- Putz'n Along, but not slow enough, apparently

Baky Parfum -- NEVER apologize to Natural Disasters! -- Sultan

Cerote -- Re:  p-ad to Onomotapoeia -- Than me, not that I.  Obviously, 2 typos. --
Sultan

Nuln -- Fascinating indeed (yawn).  Kinda like a tall tale from Death Stud, a road-
grabbing tire from Snotman, a hare from Soultaker, a warm feeling from the Grate
White North, a... -- Sultan, saying good bye (temporarily) to Aradi and best of luck
to all in the upcoming tourney

                 ANNOUNCING THE RETURN OF STORMCROWE SLAUGHTERHOUSE
     The last Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse was one of the closest and most exciting
contests ever held in Alastari.  Such an epic demands a sequel.  Therefore, Master
Darque and Jack Wolfspider are pleased to announce the return of the Stormcrowe
Slaughterhouse.
     Where?  Stormcrowe DM 45 (slow).  When?  The Slaughterhouse returns on Turn 207,
due August 19.  How can you get into the action?  Bring a team (one per entrant
please) to arena 45 and announce your intention to join the contest in the Personals.
     Rules:  This time around the rules are very simple.  Each warrior win against a
higher rated opponent (one or more points higher in the ratings) brings you 10
points, against even rated opponent 7 points, lower rated 5 points.  Wins against
NPCs or by a warrior who downchallenges are worth 0 points.  Points are doubled for
kills.  All warriors in the arena whether participating in the Slaughterhouse or not
are fair game.  Points are totaled weekly, and the contestant whose team has racked
up the most points at the end of 10 turns is declared Slaughterhouse Champion.
     Prizes:  To be announced; we're still talking with RSI about it.  Figure it will
be something pretty good.  But hey, who needs prizes when the honor of being
Slaughterhouse Champion awaits!
     More info:  Master Darque, MasterDarqueDM@aol.com, or Jack Wolfspider,
russtulp@aol.com.  Or diplo Darque Forces (428) or Dynastic (433) in Arena 45.
