     >)]H[(< + -----:----- + >)] The Free Cities #77 [(< + -----:----- + >)]H[(<

Near Barikala:

     The Golden Moon, Lady Protector Artemisia commanding, was approaching the Urt
Delta from the northeast as the day drew to a close.  Her goal was Zukal, but as soon
as the ship came within sight of land, she would anchor and wait for daylight.  The
maze of channels and islands that formed the delta was not something to attempt at
night.  At least, not now.  A decade ago there had been an intricate network of
beacons that a skilled and familiar pilot could use to reach the city's docks at any
hour, but the invasion from the East had put an end to that.  The defenders had
destroyed the beacons to hamper their foes, and the triumphant invaders of Zukal had
neither the knowledge or desire to restore the system.
     Artemisia's lip curled.  The Easterners called the people of Alastari
barbarians, because many of their cultures were young.  But if the 'civilized' old
cultures of the East didn't--or couldn't--restore safe shipping, who was the true
     The lookout shouted that land was in sight, and Artemisia turned to squint into
the setting sun.  But she was lower than the man on the mast and couldn't see the
dark line of the shore yet.  With a shrug, she turned to look the other way,
searching the sky for a warning of the sudden storms that had given this great lake
its name.  That horizon was clear, also.  She didn't quite trust it, but...the sky
was clear and the wind was steady.  Good enough, for now.
     When she turned to the west again, she could see land herself, the long, dark
hump of Barikala Island, silhouetted against the crimson sky.  The sun vanished from
sight, and its light was replaced by the broad, slightly greenish beam that shot
straight upward from the center of Barikala.  Around her, the sailors moved to place
the ship in a safe position and run out the anchors for the night; her first officer
needed no instructions to handle that.
     That beam of light over Barikala was also new since the invasion, and Artemisia
wished her friend Beag Magda were here.  The Elf understood such things.  Or at least
knew how to think about them, because nobody understood just what that blazing beacon
was...other than dangerous.  No one who had landed on Barikala in the last few years
had returned from there to tell what they'd seen.
     The lookout called down something else that she couldn't hear over the bustling
sounds of sails being lowered and anchor chains creaking off their drums.  One of the
sailors halfway down the mast below him shouted up, got an answer, and came hurrying
     "Koro says there's something coming out through the delta," the sailor reported.
"He isn't sure what, the light's about gone, but it might be a group of canoes.  They
aren't in a main channel, anyway."
     Artemisia glanced to the side.  Her first officer was there, as he should be.
"We may have an attack coming up," she said quietly.
     He nodded and moved off to make sure the crew was ready.
     Artemisia tapped her fingers on the hilt of her cutlass, reviewing
possibilities, then shrugged.  It was useless to speculate without more information,
and dangerous to formulate plans under such circumstances.  She would have to wait
upon events.


     Ghenis glared down into the alley where the last of the soldiers were marching
past.  Nothing had happened.  The dark god he had believed he served had not
responded.  The Ferencian was lying to them all.  But somewhere, he knew, there was
such a dark demongod, and he vowed to find it.  And the Ferencian liar would be the
first sacrifice....
     He withdrew carefully from the roof above the alley.  It would be a good idea to
get out of Zukal for a while.  Out from under that liar Pelishtekan's eye, so that he
could think and lay his plans in relative safety.  Niatoli Island, that's where he
would go.  The false cult already had a 'mission' there, and Cousin Og would be his,
Ghenis's, first recruit.

The Isle of the Eye:

     Beag Magda sat at a small table near the back of the Two Lilies and swirled the
last of the tea in her cup moodily.  She had no fault to find with the Lilies, they
knew her here and always gave her the same table.  And the tea, as usual, was
excellent.  Something was wrong somewhere, but it was less definite--and more
important--than a problem with the service, or a mediocre cup of tea.  She was almost
afraid to look into her cup.
     That was nonsense.  It was only the unknown that should be feared, and once she
read the tea leaves, the problem would not be unknown.  Well, it would not be
completely unknown, but tea leaves were a very imprecise method of diagnosis and
prognostication.  With a little shake, she threw off the dark mood, emptied the last
swallow of tea into the saucer, and peered into the cup at the leaves clinging to its
bottom and sides.
     She could feel the hair trying to rise on the back of her neck.  The leaves
seemed to be swimming in a web of shadows.  The patterns they formed all indicated as
plainly as tea leaves could that something very dark was impending.  But nothing was
clear.  Who was menaced, and by what?  How soon?
     Beag Magda set the cup down very carefully, because her hand was trying to
shake, and laid coins beside it to pay for the tea.  She needed more information, and
she couldn't get it here.


     Lord Protector Ipecac stalked ashore and glared around for someone to share his
outrage.  Anyone who recognized him in time--and Stormcrowe was a small island with a
limited population who generally DID recognize one another--departed hastily.  Lady
Protector Snowfall wasn't quite fast enough.  "Do you know what HAPPENED?" Ipecac
     Looking distinctly queasy, Snowfall shook her head.
     "My ship was ATTACKED," the warrior from Emetics snapped.  He didn't notice when
the shapely woman flinched from his vehemence; people were always doing that around
him.  He stalked closer, dropping his voice for privacy.  "Monsters," he hissed.
"Demons out of the waves.  Half shark, half man, you might say.  Others like kraken.
They were summoned by a dark wizard on a black ship.  We have to do something about
     Snowfall swallowed a couple of times, then said, "Why?  And how?"
     Ipecac raised his eyebrows.  "You want to live on nothing but fish caught in the
harbor?" he asked.  "They could blockade us!  And what if they decide to come ashore
and attack us here on the island?"  He frowned thoughtfully.  "Probably it's part of
some Karnhorn plot, and if we don't nip it in the bud, they'll be all over us,
murdering and enslaving.  Can't have that."
     "No," Snowfall agreed faintly, "we can't have that.  But how do we stop them?"
     "We fight, of course!"  He hesitated, perhaps realizing that such a plan was
lacking in useful details.  "All the ships will have to be armed with...catapults,"
he suggested.  "And...none of them going out alone.  Yes.  And we need to find any
wizards on the island and recruit them to help fight, and more importantly to find
out what we're up against.  That's a beginning."  He nodded firmly.  "We need to
start right away!"
     Snowfall turned quickly to the rail at the edge of the dock and fed the fish her
lunch, then straightened.  "Yes, I can see that.  Wizards, catapults, convoys.  No
time to waste...."

     Well, what are you looking at, JURINE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  JURINE saw the first turn for FORCE OF 
FIVE, a 3-1-0, and some teams are scared, others are too arrogant to notice.  Take 
note friends, take note.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see LARGE MARGE 
win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, M. CHARDINEE beat FREDDIE and 
FREDDIE lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to 
defend the throne, TAIL IN THE AIR has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting 
that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as FREDDIE takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and 
bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their 
fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  ARENA 
FELINES, 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 it looks like SATAN'S AQUARIUM 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  DELORES 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.  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.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

     Mongo, aka Matt McIntosh and ex-Warden of the Dark Circle, is auctioning off his
entire collection of Duelmasters warriors and stables.  Don't miss out on this chance
to own some fantastic warriors!  There are ADM warriors available in every class from
Primus to Freshmen, as well as over a dozen Basic stables.
     Does a Slasher with +4 attack, +4 decisiveness, +3 initiative and +2 riposte
sound good?  How about a Lunger who received the benefit of a TC prize, has TVed
three times after graduating--and still hasn't maxed out his skills!?  How about a
Striker in the Freshmen class who has decisiveness for a favorite learn and the MAUL
for a favorite weapon!?
     Or perhaps you prefer playing in Basic.  Then how does a stable with four Adept
class warriors who have a combined record of 41-19-9 sound?  Or maybe a stable with
three 21-Will warriors?  Or perhaps a stable with four Initiates and a Rookie who
have a combined record of 23-6-1?
     The quality of the lots is excellent.  All you need to view and bid on the lots
is go to:
     If you want to be on the mailing list to receive regular updates on the auction,
just send an e-mail to JVMerlino@aol.com. Merlin, aka John Merlino and also an ex-
Warden of the Dark Circle, will be running this auction for me.  I just moved to New
Orleans and am likely currently stumbling around the French Quarter...because it's
Mardi Gras!  So I have named my auction in honor of this occasion.
     The auction will start on Saturday, March 13th, 2004, and will continue for
several weeks.  But you should get your bids in early if you want your best chance at
owning any of these fantastic warriors and stables.
     Many thanks to all for your interest and your bids,

     The years have slipped by and many DM Managers have come and gone since the last
Hammer's Handbook was compiled and printed.
     There is now a stirring within me to begin writing and editing yet another
Handbook with a distribution date sometime in 2005.
     This Handbook will be made available via Email with a possibility of burning the
info to a CD for distribution.
     Special arrangements will be made to provide the information via printed page to
those contributors who are serving sentences behind bars.
     The working title of this new Handbook is "Style Masters Symposium Hosted by
     Distribution of this Handbook is projected to be MAINLY for those DM Managers
who contribute information/articles to Hammer by June 2004.
     Informative and entertaining articles should focus on insights regarding Any or
All 10 Style Masters for both the Basic and ADM arenas as well as Tourney
     Articles focusing on Weapons/Armor are also encouraged for inclusion.
     Whether you are a Newbie Manager without a clue or a Jaded Veteran; everyone has
discovered something about this gaming experience that is both Insightful and
     Email Your Articles to HammerDM@fastermail.com or send them via Diplo to either
Flower Hammerz (372) in DM 28 or Casino Hammerz (576) in DM 33.
     Length and Content of the Style Masters Symposium Hosted by Hammer will be
Determined by the Quality and Quantity of Contributors Combined with the Literary
Efforts of Hammer who is currently overseas for an indefinite period of time.
     Articles Contributed for this Project should be of Sufficient Length and Content
to Warrant being Included to Receive the Finished Document when Hammer has completed
this literary work to His satisfaction.
     Managers contributing articles are also requested to include a DM Bio of
Themselves along with any Notable Successes and/or Failures during Their DM Career in
Basic, ADM and/or Tourney Play.
     A listing of Active Stables would also be Helpful for Anyone Seeking to Reply to
