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
     "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."


     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

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
AMEN-TEI.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to WAYFARERS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the SAFE 
HAVEN stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for SHADY LADY, who flew up 18 points in the 
rankings after mashing VISITING ORC like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  PASSER BY lost to DEEVINE 
and drops 9 points.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 
'Challenge me'!  ERICKA BEARICKA made a challenge against JHANA this week.  Our 
battling duelmaster ERICKA BEARICKA has managed to hold the title, fending off 
JHANA's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, SAFE HAVEN.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the AMEN-TEI arena.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the AMEN-TEI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye. 
(Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Sorry to have written no personals last time.  The occurrence of the Face to Face,
though I don't go to it, always disrupts my schedule.  We'll try to make it up to
you, though. -- Leeta, Wayfarers

Deevine -- A good match, as such things go, and I was really glad it was you.  I've
been wanting to ask you, where do you get your nails done?  They're wonderful!  I'd
like to give it a try myself. -- Hobo-Jo
P.S.  Oh, wait, that was for last time, wasn't it?  Well, I still want to know!

Tindel -- (admiringly)  You're very tall, aren't you?  (pause, frown)  But I don't
understand why you didn't wake up till days later.  It isn't like I hit you in the
HEAD, after all. -- Hobo-Jo
P.S.  There isn't any permanent damage, I hope?

Frean -- I gotta tell you, boy, you make me cold.  Odd, that.  Every time I hear your
name, I get the shivers.  Wonder why? -- Joe Chill

Deevine -- (leans close to inspect the manicure mentioned by Hobo-Jo)  It IS quite
striking.  Of course, it wouldn't be so, um, worn-looking if you hadn't tried to bury
me in the sand...hard on your nails, burying somebody in the sand.  Bring a shovel
next time. -- Selaunah
P.S.  So, who DOES do your nails?

Wow, I've never known a Dwarf with such a nasty temper.  I don't know why he was mad
at me, I only asked how things were in Khalhums this summer, and he up and started
swinging.  So what could I do but swing back? -- Passer By, absolutely an innocent
party in this

The Ambitious Guard laughed.  He will regret that.  I do not allow fools and
strangers to take such liberties. -- a very annoyed Shady Lady

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!

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
