     >)]H[(< + -----:----- + >)] The Free Cities #76 [(< + -----:----- + >)]H[(<

Various places in Zukal:

     "There are warriors coming.  Several of them from Free Blades, in fact," Kitala
the Bold, Lady Protector of Crysalis, reported.  She picked with most comfortable
chair in the Blue Moon guildhouse's common room with an unerring instinct and settled
into it.  "Maybe one or two from Crysalis, as well.  Me, anyway.  I'm getting bored
on the Isle."
     "When?" Jorja asked.  She didn't much like Kitala--they'd trained on the same
team in Lin Tirian years ago--but she could work with the woman.  Kitala had a
deserved reputation for getting things done.  Things no one else wanted to do, and by
Mantor's Shining Sword, dealing with Sekahos was not something Jorja wanted to do.
She hated politics.  "The sooner we get started, the sooner we'll be done with it."
     "Couple of weeks, probably," Kitala said after a moment's thought.  "These
things don't happen all at once.  People have to cancel their dental appointments,
sublet their apartments, find someone to walk their dogs, stuff like that.  Some of
'em even consult their managers!"  The Lubanese woman shook her head as at an
inexplicable marvel.
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     Ghenis crouched on a roof and looked down at soldiers marching through an alley.
They were some of Sekahos's men, heading for a brothel, not that it mattered.  Any
soldiers would do for this test.  When they were all in the alley and in his sight,
Ghenis clutched his talisman and muttered, "Stop these men, make them helpless to
prevent anything I would inflict on them in Your Name."  Then he held his breath,
waiting to see if the Dark God of the cult would answer his request.  If the Demongod
answered, then he would know that the cult was real, whatever fripperies Pelishtekan
dressed it in.  And if there was no answer....  The gladiator bared his teeth in a
silent snarl.  There was, somewhere, just such a Demongod.  He knew it.  And he would
find that Demongod and unleash it on the Ferencian and the others who would propose a
false cult, just for the money and power it gave them.  Let all false prophets
beware!
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     In the principal hall of Zukal's grandest palace, the man who was now calling
himself Prince Sekahos scowled at his advisors.  "It's outrageous!  Intolerable!
It--"
     "It has happened, even so, Prince," Amar Yayoi said.  He was the Prince's
battlemage and chief adviser.  "Some fool among the benighted heathen of this land
has let loose a tribe of Old Ones, dregur as they are called here, against us.  We
must re-bind--"
     "Why can't we get them on our side?" the Prince demanded.  "If these local
yokels bound them before, then the dregur must hate them even more than they hate us.
Why not form an alliance?"
     "A novel idea," the mage said slowly, "but I would recommend against it.  The
Old Ones are not noted for their willingness to accommodate to we who are the Younger
Peoples."  He watched closely as Sekahos considered this and felt a sinking in the
pit of his stomach.  His Prince was going to demand that the attempt be made.  It
could lead to the deepest disaster, and even if an alliance successfully forged, it
could not be depended upon.  The Old Ones were masters of that special treachery
which was produced by following agreements to the exact letter.
     Whatever Sekahos might have said next was swept aside by the entry of Vilardet,
the Prince's master of spies and assassins.  The dark-faced intriguer (he was half
Ferencian and half Kannar) sketched the formal sequences of bows and salutes and
plunged quickly into his report.  "The assassin sent against Kinnishan of Chimlevtal
failed, Prince.  Bad enough in itself, of course, but worse that it has alerted the
cursed Chimlevtans against further attempts."  What Vilardet did not say, but Yayoi
knew quite well, was that the spymaster had argued against that precipitate action.
But he was wise enough not to say "I told you so," not to THIS prince.
     "Kinnishan must die!" Sekahos shouted.  "He's a reactionary!  A cursed populist!
He is blocking my path of expansion, refusing to pay tribute, providing a base for my
enemies--"
     "All this is true," Yayoi said calmly, "but there are other ways to slay a tiger
than by charging it with a spear."
     "Let us set a trap for your enemy, Prince," Vilardet agreed.  "Let us lead him
to destroy himself, and not only himself but those who would ally with him against
you."
     "This would be a great coup," the mage urged, taking up the argument in his
turn.  "Not only would your immediate enemies be removed, but their purpose in
opposing you would be so discredited that others will hesitate to rise against in the
future."
     "And in the doing of it," Vilardet went on, "another danger might also be
reduced...if Kinnishan is brought to attack the Light of Barikala, for instance?"
     Even Sekahos hesitated over that suggestion.  Inzolas had dispatched men to take
Barikala early in the invasion.  They had succeeded, but soon afterward had ceased to
communicate.  Spies sent to that great island in the years since had never returned.
Ships passing too close to it had vanished without a trace.  No one knew what,
precisely, was happening there.  The only thing to be seen which might have a bearing
on the disappearances was a pillar of light, vast, brilliant, and unaccountable, that
rose from the center of the island.  What that pillar meant, was, or did was unknown.
"Would he be such a fool?" the Prince asked finally.
     The spymaster shrugged.  "It doesn't matter.  A situation can be contrived where
he has no CHOICE but to approach the Light.  That, or lose his throne and his allies,
which would serve our purposes well enough."
     There were several minutes of silence while all considered the possibilities.
"Do it," Sekahos said finally.

In and around Kurukar:

     He who was now known as the Black Kaliv stood behind the altar, waiting.  No
moon shone on Kurukar, nor had it since the Kaliv had come into his full power.  But
there was something in the sky which gave a blood-colored light.  The Kaliv said,
"Come."
     A woman walked toward him through the icy night.  She had been a gladiator once,
before the closing of Kurukar's arena.  She was not afraid of pain and death.  But
she was afraid now.  Terrified, not for her life but for her soul.  She would have
run screaming into the dark forest had the spell not bound her limbs to the Kaliv's
will.  She would not have survived such a flight, for the men--the CREATURES--who
served the Black Kaliv were behind her.  But it would have been a cleaner death.
     She reached the altar and stopped, staring across it and awaiting the next
command.
     "Disrobe."
     Fingers half numb with cold fumbled at the fibula holding the white cloth around
her.  Like a winding sheet, it was.  She willed her fingers to seize the clasp, to
drive the long fang of metal into her own flesh and end it all now.  Her fingers
dropped the fibula onto the cloth at her feet.
     She could sense the creatures close behind her.  They were foul things, even the
one who was human.  But she wished one of them--any one of them--would reach out and
take her life.  Now.  Before it was too late.
     "Lie on the altar," the Kaliv said.
     She did so.
     The four creatures came forward, and each of them seized one of her limbs,
holding her in place though she wasn't struggling.  The Kaliv raised a dagger over
her; it burned red in the light of the not-moon in the sky.  With a single word, he
released the spell that bound her limbs to his will.
     She screamed and fought.
     Until the dagger came down.
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     Kholzern, Commander of the East for the Black Kaliv, stepped aboard his
flagship.  He wore a form that was nearly human, but his sailors were not deceived.
They had seen Kholzern in the heat of battle, when he wasted no energy on such
disguises.  But he always won those battles, so they accepted his alien origin, even
when it made their blood run cold.  Not that they had a choice.  Those who had
protested serving under Commander Kholzern had...vanished.
     "North," Kholzern said, "then east through the canal to Aljafir Bay.  Aljafir
and Stormcrowe must be subdued so that we may secure out outlet into the Storm Sea."
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     Tashart, Commander of the West, was not at all human and made no effort to
disguise that fact.  He gestured with a tentacle to the helmsman of his flagship.
"South," his piping voice ordered.  "All shipping which does not bear the standard of
Jhuizkhal is to be destroyed.  Three ships to blockade the mouth of North Fork's
river, the rest to invest Veastian.  Not a ship shall move along this coast without
my leave."

     And they call ME a bum!  Anyone look closely at the Khalhums Dwarf lately?

                                        The Bum

P.S.  15-5-12-15-10-12-15 SL, GA, very high/very low.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JURINE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
JURINE may be getting bland, as THE BUM stays top dog in the city.  The Warty Toad, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
JURINE's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  D.A.X.'S RUNNERS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like BLADES OF TERROR avoided them the 
most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, ELKIN HEMROCK was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but 
KIT-KAT has challenged up by 27 in an attempt against A BELL AZIZIZI.  My sides still 
hurt from laughing about A BELL AZIZIZI losing and giving KIT-KAT 27 points of 
recognition.  Ha ha ha ha!!  I guess I can give a little credit to TAIL IN THE AIR of 
ARENA FELINES for challenging up by 20 to MARTINE.  TAIL IN THE AIR won to get 83 
points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of JURINE.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

Tail in the Air -- Well, tickle my chin! -- Freddie

Elkin Hemrock -- That name sounds strange, like you had a mouth full of soybeans.
Oh, well, for five skills, a strange name is endurable. -- Henry Deare

Nobody had any reason to mourn the Fratsfa Slave, I hope.  He was worthless and weak
and didn't belong here. -- A Bell Azizizi

I think the Venomous Concubine should REMAIN buried in the sand until her temper
improves. -- Martine

Only three active "teams," and five fights for the whole arena.  Sad. -- Jorja,

                                    CHAOTIC WINDS
     Once, long ago, the four Winds of Time descended upon Alastari like a TEMPEST of
epic proportions, they slew everything within their all-encompassing reach.  They
left nothing.  In their wake lay smoldering ruins.
     In their haste they sped towards the center of this great land like a colossal
giant would step across an ocean.  The four storms picked up momentum on their way
towards each other.  A collision was eminent.
     The first storm wind, the oldest and wisest of the four was named APEXALUS.  The
second, FLAGGSTAFF, was the quickest and loudest entity ever created.  The third Wind
of Time was MATRIATIN, neither old or young, quick or slow, but fierce and feisty all
the same.  The forth wind, ASSAMITHIUS, the youngest yet most creative in its means
of destruction.
     When finally they merged at the center of ALASTARI, an incredible destructive
explosion occurred.  And when the smoke and debris cleared they were one.  CHAOS was
born.
     And Chaos spread across the diminished lands reeking havoc and doom with its
passing, and destroying allover again that which already lay in ruin.

All -- I send out this invitation to all teams and managers.  A new Alliance has been
formed.  The Living Essences Alliance is being formed to join forces in an effort to
eliminate common foes and to help the joined warriors grow and learn to the best of
their abilities by offering suggestions and advice.  It doesn't matter what arena
you're in, or if you're in another alliance already, as of today.  This Alliance is
open to one and all!  If you are interested in joining, please DIPLO me, or send a
personal ad to DM 93's newsletter.  If you wish to join beyond March 2004, send a PA
to DM 82.  Come join the fun! -- Dagan LifeGiver, mgr. Shadow Warriors (DM 93)

This notice is to formally introduce our young alliance, CHAOS INC.  We consist of
APEX, FLAGG, MATRIX, ASSAMITE, and now RUDE BUDDHA.  If we aren't already there, we
WILL be coming to an arena near you soon!  Hope to see you all at the ZALCON II.

Greeting from Jhans, DM 36 -- In 2 turns the kLk will host our first annual "St.

on turn 450.  It will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461 the winners will be announced.
There will be 3 separate categories, the team with the most kills, the alliance with
the most kills, and the warrior with the most kills.  For the manager of the team
with the most kills a PRIZE of 10 ROLL-UPS will be rewarded (or $50 deposited into
his account).  No need to declare yourself in the personals.  If you are in DM 36,
you will be part of the contest whether you like it or not.  We encourage as much
trash talk as you'd like.  All teams, managers, and alliances invited.  Please
contact Polarius (mgr. of Blitzkrieg) in DM 36 with questions.  Or you can email me
at jamieptmo@hotmail.com.  Good luck and see you in the sands. -- Polarius
