     Arenamaster Harkon stared into the rain, hands on hips.  Madame Lu's palanquin
had vanished as though it had never existed, and certainly never on this dark and
dripping street.  "THERE is a clishay, if you want," he growled.  "The mysterious
mistress-mind, the slant-eyed schemer from a distant land, all that--"
     Jorge Black Orc, who had been trying without success to put his shining sword
back into its scabbard, looked up in surprise.  "You think MADAM LU might be a
Clishay?"  That possibility was appalling, because Madam Lu was probably the most
powerful person on the island.  If she was the enemy, they were doomed.  And they
weren't doomed, he felt that in his bones, so she couldn't be.  "She couldn't be," he
said.
     Harkon shrugged.  "Maybe not.  Probably not.  But she'll use the Clishays, and
any clishay of a role, if it serves her purpose."
     Now the Black Orc shrugged.  "So?"
     "Her purpose is world domination, man!  You know that, as Good Guys, we can't
allow that!"
     Jorge narrowed his eyes and tried not to see the True Blue Light of Goodness
that was still blazing from his sword.  "Who you calling GOOD, Mr. Two-Shoes?"
     Harkon put a hand on his own sword.  "Do not start on me tonight, Jorge," he
warned.
     Jorge considered challenging the arenamaster, but not for long.  He sometimes
thought he could take Harkon...but what if he was wrong?
     With exquisite timing, a woman screamed, breaking up the possible fight before
it became a probable one.
     Harkon tipped his head to one side, listening to the echoes dissolving into
rain.  "That sounded...almost perfunctory.  As though she was reading a cue card, and
said: scream."
     Jorge, who felt a certain gratitude toward her for giving him a good reason not
to fight Harkon, shook his head.  "Maybe it just sounded flat because she's been
screaming for quite a while now, and nothing's come of it.  We should go see if we
can find her.  She might really NEED rescuing."
     "Don't let that blue sword go to your head, Jorge," Harkon warned.  "You ARE the
Black Orc, remember!  Dangerous, unsympathetic.  Villainous."
     "I get awfully tired of that clishayed role," Jorge growled.  He sliced his
blade in a vertical line, cutting the curtain of rain, and then swept back one side,
peering through the gap.  Behind the curtain, there was moonlight, and it was much
easier to see.  "There's a Dark Temple down that alley!" he reported.  Why had he
never seen it before?  Odd, that.  But no time to think about it now.  Another
scream, and it was coming from the Dark Temple.  "Our help is needed!"  He pushed
through the slit in the curtain and charged down the alley, shouting, "A rescue!  A
rescue!"

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hail, Rio Vistans!  It is I, your Duelmaster, Asshe-master!  Well, you all have
Soultaker to thank for this particular humiliation, so make sure you let him know
your true feelings.  But seriously, if anyone has seen Soultaker we are seriously
worried, so call the Creepster Free Press if you have any leads (someone said he had
quietly switched teams and now manages AARP, but so far this is unfounded).
     This turn's challenges:  Sandy Beach & Tsunami (I'm in love)
     This turns avoids:  Cherubic Stud & Karate Wrecker (where's Brick Summoner?)
     You gotta love in-FONZ challenging!!!
     That's it for me, hopefully in a few more turns of this and I'll be sippin' a
scrod-tini on a beach somewheres and catching the TOGS results in the paper!

yours in DMship,

Asshe-Master

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARADI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, ARADI RESORT & SPA, since 
THIEVES GUILD took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Why not, I'm 
having a good day, so I feel sorry for CHEER-O-KEE'S, who went 0-3-0 and dropped 15 
into 28th.  Here's my pity, for what it's worth.  DEATH STUDS VII turned their 4-1-0 
turn into a 11th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you 
get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch CRAZY CREEPS' heads swell from their 4-1-0 
this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  ARADI saw the first turn 
for DILEN'S HORDE, a 3-2-0, and some teams are scared, others are too arrogant to 
notice.  Take note friends, take note.  Middle of the road, COWS, middle of the road; 
you'll get no good words from me, until you get better, or worse.  Break a leg.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see VOLMAX win a fight and gain 59 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SLIPKNOT beat TSUNAMI and TSUNAMI lost 13 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  FALCON XLI challenged ARADI's Duelmaster for a shot at the 
throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as FALCON XLI takes the Title 
and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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, 
ARADI?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  ARADI, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  THIEVES GUILD the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like CRAZY CREEPS avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  MOUSE was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  I could say I saw this coming, but so 
could anyone else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  ORIGINAL SHOCKER's 14-7-2 has earned 
him the Dark Arena.  And sending ORIGINAL SHOCKER to the Dark Arena was supposed to 
be one of your better ideas, WILD CARDS?  Gee, WILD CARDS, ain't it past due for 
sending MISTRESS BOMBTRONIC Dark Arena?  What took ol' '19-12-1' so long?  Hope?  Ha 
ha aha ha!  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone else.  Anyway, this 
turn it came.  HERROL's 9-7-0 has earned him the Dark Arena.  Whoa!  I'll even buy 
DA1 a drink tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on 
his good side!  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, ASSASSIN of 
SILENT WARRIORS has added the final loss to his 6-6-1.  Tee hee!  Bye bye, warrior, 
bye bye...  TALON, a glorious 9-6-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad WING 
HOVE.  Seriously now, is it really honorable for FALKYNOR from THE WILLBURYS 13 to 
kill ASSASSIN and give SILENT WARRIORS the chance to bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be.  
Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless 
cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ARADI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Tidbits From The Crazy Creeps Free Press:
     A big-asshe-master is number one in Aradi.
     FONZ = Foolish Oozing Navel Zits
     Farmer boB has been fined for copyright invasion.
     God is Nuln.
     The hated one has mail and male content issues.
     Soultaker is a favored backstab victim.
     Death Stud has been sleeping alone in his little bed.
     Papa Bear is even older that The Creepster.
     Angus thought The Golden Scrod was prime rib.
     Creep, creep, creep -- The Creepster trying to appease Lady E.
     Mannequin and Lady Elysian are playing.
     White Witch is the queen of Aradi.

Rocky -- I am susceptible to apples.  Give it a try. (wink) -- Snow White

Nice place that PG rated Aradi Resort & Spa; yes, indeed.  For those of you wishing
for X-rated massages and activity, please join my Flower Girls at Fratsfa's finest--
The Flower Shoppe.  Bring your favorite weapon.  Ecstasy is but a short journey away.
-- Lady Fern

Lady Elysian -- The great thing about paying little cherubic Death Stud back for his
expert advice is the very small amount that you need to offer.  Why the Hungaruan
chocolate body treatment will take but one small, silvery wrapped chocolate kiss.
Isn't that wonderful. -- Tiny Tim

NAIMT -- Why, what happened to you?  You seem to have melted into something rather,
well, uh, luscious! -- Certain Consortium Folk

HYQ -- Hah!  Got you, you killer, you.  Now what am I going to do with you? -- Tiny
Tim (wink)

Lord Nuln has an underchin.

Shaman -- You say "loser" like it's a bad thing.... -- Death Loser Stud

Speedy -- Congrats on a nice run in Aradi and scumming some victories away from us
(you fargin bastidge).  Don't let the arena doors hit you in the donkey on the way
out. -- Death Studs

Nuln -- Regarding your email format:

  Desired
Try not to piss of Ed. already, OK?  The TOGS hasn't even started. -- Death Stud

Barnabas -- I appreciate the offer to help me with getting back on track and
increasing my wins, but I can't fight your guys EVERY turn. -- Death Stud

Quote of the week from Barnabas to Inferno:  "...You're not getting soft, are
you?..."  It's just like being at the FTF all over again. -- Death Stud

Indimar -- Welcome back!  Whew, the TOGS just got a little easier for the rest of us.
Now if we could just get Elephant back, too.  That's be like Christmas. -- Death Stud

Lady Elysian -- Glad to help out a (beautiful and engaging) friend.  It's always fun
trying to turn a band of misfits into a fighting unit. -- Death Stud

Son of Bloodlust -- Dang, Pretty Boy's personal ad to you last turn was like soft
porn.  I'm jealous, I never got one like that. -- One-Timer

Nuln -- Congrats on that Duelmaster thingee. -- Death Studs

Congrats and raspberries to all for their performances at the FTF.  It was good to
see everyone again and only eleven months until we meet again! -- Death Stud

Lady Elysian -- I look forward to playing with you, too!  There is no need for your
husband to be jealous--everyone likes to play with a.... Mannequin  :)

Shammy Crockett -- You hit like a girl.  A really strong girl with a nasty
disposition, that is. -- Tay Starle

Barnabas -- Enjoyed the B.S. session.  I had forgotten Aradi was overstocked with Rio
Vistans, I guess one or two more won't matter. -- Indimar

Beerguzzlin'redhead -- I am truly impressed.  Even when knocked to the ground you
never spilled a drop. -- Jamis

Nuln -- Have you ever considered trying an old English/pig Latin cross? -- Indimar

     Yah, just shoot me now, why don't you?  It would be kinder. -- Ed.

Silent Warriors and Ganolus -- Sorry about Ghost, but he was an Aimed Blow, and they
do die A LOT! -- Rascally Rabbit and Falkynor

AARP -- See above. -- RR and Emil

All -- It's nice to be back; still looking for a TOGS partner. -- RR

Crazy Creeps -- Looks like Jack got ripped. -- Sonett

Coyote -- All I can say is wow!  Not exactly the results I expected. -- Noisey
Cricket

Phreak -- Thought I was gonna run out of gas there for a minute.  I'm sure you were
happy with your learns, I almost screamed rape. -- Rip Rap

Mouse -- You should consider sparring till you grow up to be a rat. -- Rocky

Rhys -- Gonna have to try that again someday. -- Little Eddy

Master -- Your Kung-Fu no goooood. -- Sandy Beach

Ed. -- Relax, it's called ten people in a room with three beds; sometimes you got to
do what you got to do.  Hell, we'd even make room for you if need be, all about
affordable rooming.  That's where RSI picks up all those extra team sheet sales and
makes for a very large rookie class. -- Barnabas

     Thanks for the offer, but I'm afraid I'd...inhibit your usual style.  Or
     something.  If that doesn't work, I'll think of another excuse. *grin* -- Ed.

Indimar -- Well old buddy, if the challenges went my way you gonna be swimmin'
against a mighty swift current.  Just had to do it before TOGS started, I couldn't
stand it.  There you were just sitting there, and all of a sudden my pen started
challenging; hope things went well, well for me anyway.  As I told you in previous
conversation, once the old TOGS starts I'll be saying adios for a while so I hope I
kicked your ass!!! -- Barnabas

Fonzettes -- When the hell you boys gonna start firing out with some personals, most
of you are pathetic, weak, whiney, I'm to busy yupped out hmmmmmmmmm, let me think on
this one for a while.  Come on boys, I ain't got time to break out a can of whoop
ass. -- Barnabas

Death Stud -- Do you think I was to harsh?  You've got to monitor the manic gauge and
let me know when it's getting to close to red line. -- Barnabas
P.S.  Did you get the same jealous vibe from Ed. that I did.  >)  Sorry Ed., keep
your vibes to yourself, it's strictly strict in there, minimum 6" gap between bodies.

     It may have been a vibe, but I think you've mis-identified it. -- Ed.

Lord Xiang -- You seem to have an interest about managers in all arenas.  Are you
building a hit list?  I've seen your name elsewhere, hmmmmm, guess I'll have to start
looking back myself.  Delarquan comes to mind, ahhh yes, DM 11 I believe is where
I've seen you before.  Friendly larqs, we'll see if your word is good. -- Barnabas

Son of Bloodlust -- (whimpering softly)  I'll miss you.  I'll miss your great treats,
like three skills and two ratings.  Even a Good Dog knows that this Serious
Appreciation.  And a Good Dog always appreciates, seriously, serious appreciation.
It's part of our basic training, you know. -- Flower

Jim Panzi -- That was very strange, the way you jumped around and made ooking noises.
I knew somebody like that once, and everyone told me that it would be a Bad Thing to
bite him, so I have an inhibition.  This makes it hard for me to respond to you.  If
you'd throw a ball, it would be easier.  I know what to do when somebody throws a
ball. -- Stevie

Inigo -- (puzzled look)  Why does your ball have words on it?  And (sniff) it smells
funny.  Like (sneeze) chlorine.  And it's too big to bite, even for a BIG dog, except
maybe one of those special Really Really Big Dogs that eat whole cows for breakfast.
Which I'm not one.  Just your average bulldog, that's me. -- Bully Boy

Speedy -- (panting)  You must be!  I'm all tired out from trying to keep up. --
Pretty Boy

Karate Wrecker -- (wagging hopefully)  You are going to go wreck some karates, aren't
you?  Can I have the bones?  I would like a good, juicy karate bone. -- The Tail

Son of Bloodlust -- But you smell so good.  All that blood.  My favorite perfume. --
Pretty Boy

Creepster -- No, Sandman wasn't the only FONZ TC...but thanks for noticing. -- Hombre

All -- I would write more ads, but I'm saving up what little creative energy I have
for TOGS.... -- Hombre

Saint -- So ya got an updated manager list for us now?  Things changes quickly in a
turn.  <grin> -- Nuln

     Here's your update.  But only because you DIDN'T ask in the dead language of
     swine. -- The Saint, keeper of lists

AARP -- We were curious if you were managed by Soultaker, or perhaps one of his nice
friends down at the senior center. -- the curious people at the 4000 Blows Guildhouse

Shaman -- Such are the perils of dual-managership, eh?  But you & boB seem to get
along well enough.  Funny tho' how I never see the two of you in the same place at
the same time.... -- Nuln
P.S.  I didn't realize you bore a hatchet for the rest of the FONZ.  Out of curiosity
what's your beef?  Do you by chance find them annoying?  I never knew this bitterness
had been festering silently so long.

interpreter to the Creepster -- You can take me off the mailing list for the Crazy
Creepster Free Press.  I've switched over to the Farmer boB Free Press. -- Nuln

Creepster -- HahahaAhahaHahah!  Your "FONZ =" bit was top rate gut-busting stuff this
past turn, Creepie.  Our chaos helms off to you! -- nameless FONZ manager

Barnabyss -- I hate to sound like a broken record, but you should take a gander over
at the Farmer boB Free Press there.  Just a fine, fine source of news.  Top notch,
really.  Pulitzer worthy. -- Ninnskinullski

Lady Elysian -- Mmmm, all of what you described did sound awfully, awfully tempting
(although I wouldn't trust a Hanguruan Golem further than a lima bean), but what I
was really hoping you would offer, and this is a personal taste I've acquired over
the years, that being a Farfrejan Foot Greulay.  Sticking my aching tootsies into a
giant bowling of steaming greul, ahhh, now that's the stuff! -- Nullllll

Indimar -- Ok, just to be sporting I'll bet 500 scrodbucks you flake out on turn 6.5,
but I of course hope you'll stay longer.  Give regular arena play a chance, it's like
Life cereal. -- Nuln

Death Stud -- Quit giving Lady E advice.  Or at least wait 'til after I've fought her
warriors. -- Nuln

Lady Elysian -- Er, I think you should give up on the story and concentrate on
writing looong, drawn out paragraphs in the personal ads entirely in Pig Latin.  Then
we can practice useful skills like ducking & running as Ed. hunts us down for
retribution.  That would take us to turn 4 or so until we'd have to figure something
else out.  But I'm flexible. -- Nuln

     Not as flexible as you're going to be when I've finished tying your toes around
     your ears. -- Ed.
     P.S.  Then I'm going to roll you down a hill and tell the Red Dog Gang that
     you're a ball.

Tsunami -- I'm sure your head will be on a stick somewhere soon.  Welcome to the
hell-zone. -- Asshe-master

Shanktronic -- Yipes, that was my worst shanking yet.  Stay the shank away from me!
-- Richalds, Chim Richalds, MD

Tay Starle -- I know, I know, you were just fight-throwing for TOGS.  I feel so used.
-- Shmamy Crockett

Flower -- I know your whole team pretty much hates me now, so I'll just pack my bags
and be on my way.  Adios! -- Son of Bloodlust

Analise -- I'd love to.  <blank look>  Did you know that Aradi is ancient Andorianese
for "side of hamhock."  It's true, I swear. -- Dr. Chim Richalds, MD
P.S.  Did I mention I'm a healer?  I heal people with my bare hands?

Snotman -- I heard somebody sayin' sumpin' about you not bein' able to run a scum tp
out of a soiled diaper.  Just, uh, thought you should, you know, know that. -- Nuln

Whomever put the Top Teams of Andorak together -- While many may sing Hallelujah that
I am back, the name of the manager for Aradi Resort and Spa is Lady Elysian, not
Kyrie...although come to think of it, having sung in a choir...maybe you got the
Eleison (sp?) that comes after Kyrie confused.  Either way, I'm just letting you know
so you can correct your records. -- Lady Elysian

     Picky, picky.  It is fixed though. -- The Saint, keeper of often inaccurate
     lists

Dearest Saint -- It's so good to see you again.  I've missed you.  We and A-Sop
really should get together again and have some chicken shwarma with extra garlic
sauce or mayo or cream or whatever that is.  Mmmm, Mmmmm, good. -- Lady Elysian
P.S.  Thanks for the list.  It's very helpful.  At least yours is more accurate as
well. :)

     I'll just take the garlic without any of the trimmings.  I'm feeling antisocial
     today (but only towards those who won't eat garlic with me!). -- The Saint

Soultaker -- Glad to hear you're doing better.  Sorry, but every time I think about
calling you, it's like 2am your time.  I figured that would be too late to call...or
are you still up playing games with your wife? -- Lady Elysian

Pandora -- What games are you playing with Soultaker that has him up all night?
Maybe I could learn something new? -- Lady Elysian
P.S.  Just in case, maybe we should discuss it in person.  This is a PG arena, after
all.  Hey, let's have a girls night out at the spa and share.  That will scare our
men, won't it?

Death Stud -- So what are the rules for this TOGS again?  It's been a while and I and
A-Sop have forgotten.  Oh, and A-Sop has agreed to be my partner for TOGS.  Thank
you! -- Lady Elysian
P.S.  Oh, and can we see a posting of all the TOGS participants and their partners as
well?

A-Sop -- I really appreciate you coming to partner with me.  We're going to have such
fun! -- Lady Elysian
P.S.  Cute team name.  You're so bad. :)

Dr. Chim Richalds -- I see you liked my moves of distraction during our fight.
Normally I would love to see your leather bound books, but Lady Elysian reminded me
that you were trained by Nuln and I don't think that would be a good idea.  What kind
of doctor are you again? -- Analise

Death Stud and Nuln -- Hhmmm, I do remember a TOGS rule is one must write ads...do we
not have many players yet?  These ads are kinda sparse for a TOGS, aren't they?  Oh,
wait, we haven't started yet, have we? -- Lady Elysian

     No, things only get worse from here.... -- Ed.

Inferno -- Just because we haven't started TOGS yet is no reason to get mum, my giant
friend.  Don't tell me your lady friend is teaching you to let her do the talking?
Oh, wait, since I haven't seen you in so long, I forgot that you don't say much as it
is. -- Lady Elysian

Nuln -- Death Stud says he really laughed when I wrote that you had an underchin.
You really should talk to him about his sense of humor. -- Lady Elysian

Bully Boy -- Death Stud recommended we challenge you for the skills, and he was right
as usual.  Thanks! -- Inigo, swordsman extraordinaire

Nezumi -- Ouch!  I don't know if I agree with Death Stud on the challenge.  That hurt
even if I did learn.  I hate losing and your jibe at the end wasn't very nice either.
No massages later for you.  Hmmmpfh! -- Manda

Lava Tube -- Unlike Manda, I understand the no pain, no gain philosophy.  Thanks for
the skills and I'll be happy to give you a free backrub any time if you continue to
teach me like that. -- Thalia

De Novo -- Oops, sorry about that.  Didn't mean to hit you so hard. I liked our fight
though.  Thanks for the practice! -- Analise

To all -- I'm looking forward to beating, I mean, meeting you all in wonderful DM 60.
-- King Pin, mgr. Cows

     Not, perhaps, the best team name to have in this arena.... -- Ed.

Lady Elysian -- What a wonderful idea, I'd love to be your partner in TOGS (are we
allowed to use that word in public?).  Terrifying the general populace of Aradi, what
a special idea, I can't wait to start.  Oh, never mind, I think I just did. -- A-Sop

Death Stud -- Now that I've agreed to join your "little" TOGS contest, could you send
me a copy of the rules.  I need to see just how far I can bend those rules before
they break. -- A-Sop
P.S.  Exactly when does this contest start?

Soultaker -- It's been a while since we've been in an arena together, this should
prove interesting. -- A-Sop

All -- Just so everyone knows, I manage Bugs, Slugs, and Thugs.  If you find yourself
listed on the team, you can use your imagination to decide which category you're
listed under; I'll know for certain. -- Lady A-Sop

Karate Wrecker and Tsunami -- NO! -- Arenamaster Harkon
P.S.  If you see Merven Dree anywhere, hit him over the head a couple of times and
throw him this way.  HE should be handling this stuff.

Ed. -- But what if Lomi Lomi is massaged salmon?  It could be, couldn't it? -- Jorge
Black Orc, always interested in food
P.S.  The cookies were delicious.  REALLY delicious.  I ate all but two, which I
shared.

     No, lomi lomi is...marinated but not cooked, if I recall correctly.  Which I
     suppose might describe some sort of body work. -- Ed.
     P.S.  I'm glad they hit the spot.  They're too rich for every day, but just
     right for special occasions.

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.
