Aruak City:

     If Segallion and Nila were under the control of the spell or spellcaster who had
seized her mirror, then they had to be stopped.  Without needless injury--they had
not chosen to do Khaldren's will, after all.  But her own mind, though free from
outside control, was weary and slow.  She was fumbling as badly with her spells as
Segallion was with his sword.  There wasn't going to be TIME for her stop him gently.
A word of Command formed on her lips.
     The warrior staggered into her so that they both fell in a tangle of flailing
limbs.  And his sword struck the blood-faced mirror, splitting the frame and
shattering the glass.
     The glass exploded away from the mirror stand, bloody shards flying outward on a
wave of sound so shrill as to be barely audible.  If Adie, Segallion, and Nila had
not all been on the floor, they might have been badly injured, even killed.  Was it
chance that they were all below the deadly glass?  Adie thought not.  They were each
worshippers of the sun in their different ways, and she suspected the hand of the god
in their survival.
     Rolling away from Segallion, Adie sat up, brushing at her hair and her robe
absently.  When the mirror broke, she had felt a shadow lifting; that was the first
she had known that there was a level to the enemy spell below the obvious.  She
shivered.  She hadn't even suspected that deeper spell, and it could have done...
anything, it had taken her so completely by surprise.  But she would not be surprised
a second time.

On the road from Ardivent:

     "Health, humility, and honor will not solve all problems," Master Cho said
flatly.  He had rejected the idea of hiring a horse and was making surprisingly good
time for an elderly-looking man on foot.  "You know that as well as I do, Fandil!
Sometimes you need cunning, as well, and a willingness to take losses."
     "I know that."  Fandil the Wise sounded testy, and in truth he was very
irritated.  On the most immediate level, by Cho's present attitude and by the ease
with which the Adantri kept up with Fandil's horse.  "But young Adeolar is not a loss
I'm prepared to accept."
     "Of course not, or why would we be rushing toward Aruak City instead of sitting
at home with beer?"  Cho squinted at the forest on their right.  There was a bad
feeling to it today.  Most of the land that lay between the environs of Ardivent and
the beginning of the Aruaki lands was forested.  Despite the hunger for agricultural
land in Andoria, no one had made an attempt to clear this forest and put the land
under the plow.  Nobody offered reasons, it was just "not done."  It didn't take a
master of the subtle arts to figure it out, though.
     The forest was haunted.
     Through a sweep of land twenty miles wide stretching from near Lyratilan to near
Mordant, the forest concealed a scattering of ruins.  Not the Van ruins of northern
Andoria, or not entirely--who could know for sure at this late date?  The ancient
city of Celestinvael was the best known in modern times, but there were other things
hidden by those dark and tangled trees.  Maybe worse things.  Things that might be
wakened by the same spell that was stirring Celestinvael.
     It was not a situation to make an old man sleep soundly at night.
     "I just hope we're in TIME to help Adeolar," Cho muttered.
     "She's strong and skilled," Fandil protested.  "Our fears may be completely
unfounded!"
     "So you'll back Adeolar's young strength and skill against Khaldren's ages of
experience and cunning?  I hope you're right, because at our best pace," he glanced
scornfully at Fandil's horse, "and with no problems, it'll take us two more days to
get to Aruak City."

Skaithvarn:

     Shania Silverstar did her best to be patient, but it seemed to be taking Ashon
Chang so LONG to negotiate with the ship captain!  She glanced around at her
companions, wondering if she could have organized her resources better for this
frantic rush back to Alastari.  No, probably not.
     Vurand and Jammies were keeping both eyes on Herlas; the Fratsfan mage hadn't
given them any trouble...yet, but he might.  He would, when he thought he had a
chance to win.  Werre was organizing their luggage and supplies (desperately slim
now) as fast as they were off-loaded from the mules.  Zakar...she didn't know what
Zakar was doing, and she wasn't sure she wanted to.  He was on their side, more or
less, but...today had seemed to be a "less" day.  And Rughal was at her side,
supporting her as weariness ate at her bones.
     Ashon Chang was gesturing them forward to the ship.  Before Shania could gather
her strength to walk, Rughal lifted her and carried her down the dock.  "It is
agreed," Ashon Chang said.  "This man, Kaldinar, will sail us across the Trier to
Zorpunt."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is an honor to sit at the top of Aradi, I mean "Loopholes."  Too bad I
couldn't get the throne during the TOGS IV.  My manager Judge and wimpy finished
sixth--respectable, but not what we hoped.
     Judge hates my fighting style and only let me fight in an effort to improve his
TOGS record.  That did not end up working out too well.  Hopefully, he will let me
graduate.  After all, I am Legalese's first Duelmaster in Aradi.  Hopefully, I will
be here next turn.

               Your Duelmaster,
               Loches

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in LOOPHOLES a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor. 
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for 13TH CIRCLE, whose 0-0-0 this turn 
dropped them by 4 into 11th.  JOKA MASHER! stable has parlayed this turn's 2-0-0 into 
a 9 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 7th place.  Good work, guys!  
The INGRATE WHITE NORTH guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the 
future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, INSISTANT 
BEGGAR fought THE SPOTLIGHT and gained 18 points and contributed to BUMS 'R' US' 
1-4-0.  OBITER DICTA has lost to AVIENDHA, falling 12 points, while helping make 
LEGALESE a 1-3-0 turn.  And all eyes were on SANDSTORM this turn as he ascended to 
the throne of Duelmaster.  LOOPHOLES has a new victor!  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Blind 
Cyclops Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  NATURAL DISASTERS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were LOOPHOLES' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And guess who avoided NATURAL DISASTERS stable the most?  Believe it 
or not, it was INGRATE WHITE NORTH.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take 
notice that TOSSED SALAD from HIT ME WITH... was LOOPHOLES' most challenged warrior 
this turn.   
     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.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in LOOPHOLES again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Aradi -- I know that it is the obligatory post-TOGS burnout period, but could we show
a little life and have some communication around here?  I see new players on the RT
asking about arenas to go where there is lively interaction and I don't suggest Aradi
to them because, if they looked at the newsletter for themselves, they would think I
was lying to them.  It is sad to be embarrassed by our arena like that.  As fun as
the TOGS is, the idea of it is to make Aradi more fun and more interested.  And while
that goal is accomplished for a few months, I really hate to see the price be total
silence for several more months.  Do we all really want Aradi to be just another
arena where the only personal ads are written by the ever-faithful Red Dog Gang and
their manager?  Anyone have any suggestions for something to get people interested
and interacting again?  Round-robin story?  Limerick contest?  Stirring up some
trouble in the arena?  Anything? -- Death Stud

     A silly hat contest? -- Ed.

All -- I hope that everyone did well at the tournament.  My congratulations to
Sandman for pulling yet another TC!  I am sorry that it had to come at the expense of
Mad Max as both managers are very deserving of success, but that is the nature of
direct competition. -- Death Stud

Verdict -- Ha!  (soft growl)  I know what to do about your kind when you come
sniffing around MY house.  And if you'd been just a little shorter, I would have
taken you by the snuff of the neck (that's where sneezes start) and shaking you like
the rat you are! -- Queenie

Busted Nuts -- Did you actually think you could TRICK me by throwing that rock?  That
I would chase it?  Not when I'm on guard, sister!  A Red Dog is true to her trust. --
Pretty Boy the Faithful

Dead Meat -- Well, you had the right idea, I really did want to roll on you, but that
old poop of an Arenamaster had to butt in, didn't he?  Oh, well, perhaps we can get
together some other time and I can relish that wonderful fragrance. -- Flower, a dog
from her nose to her toenails

Twee -- I like the way you squeak when I bite you.  It really tickles my whiskers. --
Needletooth

Naturally, the Polite Beggar couldn't teach me anything.  I'm a DOG, after all.
There isn't anything worth knowing about begging that I don't know already, including
when to forget the wistful looks and just grab the steak and run. -- The Tail

Ed. -- Probably the cat did want to sleep on the couch.  Cats are encroaching.  But
so what?  I'm bigger than a cat, and I'm a DOG.  Dogs have privileges that cats can
only dream about. -- Pretty Boy

     What privileges are those? -- Ed., just curious

Ack Ack -- Congratulations on your victory in your 30 point downchallenge.  How proud
you must be. -- Obiter Dicta

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!

The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
