Til Death Do Us Part
spotlight for DM 65

     A clear wineglass flew through the air, shattering into pieces as it hit the
wall of old books.  "What do you mean, they lost the girl?!"  Tenerus looked around
for something else to throw to vent his frustration.
     "Well, sir...."
     "Don't answer that!  I'm surrounded by idiots!"
     "Be careful with your choice of words."  The voice echoed strangely in the room.
It was...creepy.  A figure emerged from the shadows where Tenerus would have sworn
nothing and no one had been a moment ago.  A figure more unnatural and unnerving than
the voice had been.  "You never know who is listening."
     "Oh!  Hobgoblin."  Tenerus suppressed his urge to shudder.  He had known the
half-demon for years and still had not gotten used to him.  To his voice, his trick
of appearing unexpectedly, and to the hellfire glow of his eyes.  "I didn't mean YOU,
Hobgoblin.  You know I didn't mean you."
     "Of course you didn't."  Hobgoblin's voice was so neutral that it was impossible
to tell what he really thought.  "What has happened?"
     "Eidolon failed to reach the girl in time.  Now they are in pursuit of her."
     Hobgoblin hissed.  "Eidolon is a fool.  We can't afford to let him mess this one
up."
     "How hard could it be to capture one small girl?"
     "Never underestimate a sword-bearer," the half-demon warned him.
     "I agree."  He thought for a moment, considering the people he had to work with
and where they were.  "Will you go?  To see that it is done right."
     "Consider it done."  Abruptly, Hobgoblin was not there anymore.
     Tenerus looked back at the messenger.  "I feel better about this already."

Dal Shang:

     Triss was alone in her room.  In her special room.  It was never rented out to
anyone but her.  It was a place where she could forget her secrets, for a time.  Of
course, it had a secret of its own.  And before she could allow herself to relax, she
wanted to make sure that the room's secret, her secret, was still safe.
     Inside the closet on the right side was a small trap door.  Two feet wide, four
feet long, and the carpenter who made it had been skilled, you had to know it was
there to see it.  Triss opened it and sighed in relief as she pulled out a bundle
wrapped in a dark gray cloak.
     She carried the bundle over to the bed and unwrapped it.  Mirror-polished steel
reflected her smile.  She ran her hands along the runic symbols etched into the blade
until the came to the black hilt with golden trim.  It was truly a beautiful sword.
Triss brought the sword up and hugged it against her.  "Thank the gods you're safe,
Windsong."
     Someone banged on the door.  She jumped and looked around quickly for a place to
hide the sword.
     "Room service!"  The voice was muffled behind the closed door.
     "Just a minute."  She scrambled to hide the sword, slipping it under the pillow,
then opened the door for the waiter.  The aroma of well-cooked food filled her
nostrils, reminding her that her last meal had been hours ago.  It held her attention
so that she almost missed the clue:  just as she was closing the door behind the
waiter, she saw the toes of a second man's boots barely poking around the corner.  It
could be chance... or a trap.  She forced herself to smile at the waiter--if he was a
waiter--and positioned herself between him and the bed.  "So, what's for dinner?"
     "For you?" he paused and smirked, "you won't need it."  There was suddenly a
dagger in his hand, and he slashed at her.
     Triss threw herself backward onto the bed, her hand sliding under the pillow and
closing around the hilt of her sword.  She barely blocked the second attack, but the
force of the parry broke the dagger.
     Jerik cursed at his broken weapon and threw it aside.  The door slammed open
again, and the second man burst into the room, sword drawn.
     "Who are you?" Triss demanded.  She edged toward the other side of the room,
away from the bed, trying to keep enough space around her to allow free movement in
any direction.
     "Don't worry about that.  Just hand over that--"  Jerik's eyes widened as he
recognized the sword she was holding.  "Tirol, that's Windsong!"
     Tirol moved between Triss and Jerik.
     Triss shifted her footing.  "Stay back."
     Jerik moved backward to lock the door and wedge a chair under the handle.
"There's no escape.  Hand over that sword."
     Tirol moved closer.
     "I'm warning you!"  Triss started waving the sword through the air.
     Tirol ignored her words.
     "Tenerus ordered us to bring back the sword you stole," Jerik said.  "That
sword."
     Her movements were become fluid, assured, almost as though the sword was
controlling her now.
     "He also wanted you brought back... alive or dead."
     Tirol lunged.
     Triss vaulted the bed, twisting in mid-air.  Windsong plunged into her
attacker's back.
     Jerik's eyes widened in shock as his partner fell, lifeless.  He backed up a
step.
     Triss's eyes came to him.  "Now for you."
     Jerik had a sword in the scabbard on his belt, but his only reaction was to run.
He tossed the chair away from the door and pulled on the handle.  Locked... damn!
     "Unfortunately for you," Triss said, her voice calm, "I'm not going back."  She
lunged forward, perfectly balanced, and ran the sword through him.
     Jerik fell.
     Triss backed up to the bed and sat down, panting.  She pressed one hand to her
chest, feeling it heave as everything came back into focus.  Two dead men on the
floor.  They found me....
     Knocking on the door again.
     She stiffened, her grip tightening on the sword.
     "Triss, are you okay?"
     "Oh, gods..." her eyes ran around the room and settled on the only window.  "I
have to get out of here.

Dal Shang arena:

     "I want to thank you all for showing up so quickly," the Silver Bullet said.  He
looked around at the small group of people.
     The redheaded woman called Irish Cream smiled at him.  "I never wanted to
leave."  Her accent made the words almost a song.
     "Same here," Bacardi added.
     "Well, good.  So let's go out there and show them what Stumblin' Drunk is all
about, then."  There were giggles, even laughter, from the group of gladiators.
"Cooler, you're up next."
     She had been sitting on the table.  Now she hopped down and picked up her
scimitar.  "I'll see you all at the winners' circle," she said.  She ran out the door
and up the hall to the sands.
     "Screwdriver, you're on after her," Bullet said.
     Screwdriver nodded without saying a word.
     Bullet turned his attention to a large man standing in the corner.  He was
fumbling with some of the straps on his armor.  "D.U.I." Bullet called out.
     "Uh...."
     "You gonna be alright?"
     "Aye... just a few more shots, and I'll be as right as rain."  He would always
get as drunk as he could before a fight.  He said that it would help him not feel the
other warrior hitting him.  Bullet wasn't sure if that was the smartest thing, but it
had earned him a tournament victory, so Bullet let him do as he wanted.
     "Okay, guys, let's go watch Cooler."  Just then, cheers erupted from the crowd
in the arena.  Bullet glanced back at the rest of his team and raised an eyebrow.
"That was fast...."

A few days later at the Til Death Do Us Part guildhouse:

     "And here's to starting new," Killjoy finished her toast.  The guild had been in
their new home for a week, their rooms were unpacked, and a new member had been added
to the team, a local man named Kraj."
     "Cheers!"  The team clanked their cups together.
     "Well, everyone, I must be off," Man-O-War said, standing.  "I'm meeting Sitha."
He hurried out the door and almost ran over a cloaked figure.  "Oh, sorry...."  He
paused and looked more closely.  "Triss?  How are you doing?"
     Triss was hunched into her dark cloak.  The tail of it flapped in the wind.  She
looked up, and there were tears running down her face.
     "What's wrong?" Man-O-War asked, this time with concern in his voice.
     She looked ashamed and miserable.  "I need to ask for your help," she said.

Not far away at the Drunken Dragon:

     It was a slow night, so the Stumblin' Drunk guild sat around a table telling
stories.  Funny ones from the past, sad ones about their fallen teammate Bacardi.
They all had drinks in front of them, but were not drunk.
     The swinging doors flew open, and two men walked in and right up to the table
where Silver Bullet was sitting.  The young man was dressed very well, his garb
understated but not cheap.  The older one wore the ordinary clothing of a working
man.
     "Silver Bullet!" the young man said.
     He glanced up without standing.  "Yes?"
     "I'm with the Gladiatorial Commission," he said, his voice crisp and
professional.  "I have two announcements for you."
     "Okay.  Announce 'em."
     "The first one is the enrollment of a new member for your team."  He gestured,
and the older man stepped forward.  The old man looked rough and gruff, as though
he'd been through a few wars.
     Bullet looked him over, glanced at the young man, then turned back to the old
one.  "Are you sure you want to do this?"
     The old man shrugged.  "I have lived a long time and seen a lot of things," he
said.  "Either I'll make it to the Isle, or I'll die now with no regrets."  He
coughed a couple of times and then was quiet.
     "Okay...."  Turning back to the young Commissioner, Bullet asked, "What else?"
     "Congratulations are in order."  He turned to the young woman called Tropical
Cooler.  "It seems that you have met the requirements.  You are going to the Isle."
He handed her a scroll.
     Cooler opened it, smiling widely.  "I DID IT!!!" she screamed, jumping up and
down.  "I can't believe this!"  She ran around the table, giving everyone hugs and
kisses.
     "Thank you for your time."  The young man bowed and left the tavern.
     "WOOOOOHOOOO!!!"  Cooler was dancing around the room now.
     The old man smiled a little as he watched her, then turned to Silver Bullet.
"Call me Gray Goose," he said.

To be continued.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for DAL SHANG.  Like, SAND DANCERS had to be 
so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by POSSE!  Way to go POSSE!  Cut this 
out and put it in your scrapbooks, POSSE!  'Cause they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 1st! 
MVP award for JERI TAVAN?  SAND DANCERS' proud of her after beating DUI and getting 
19 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  MAN-O-WAR's match with LONER cost him a 
loss of 9 points!  Was that a tear I saw in LONG SHOT's eye, as he took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't DEADWOOD fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of POSSE must be getting lonely.  They 
were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What 
kind of warriors are GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS?  POSSE, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is KO LAO-DEN popular, or what?  
He was challenged the most in all of DAL SHANG!  He's got a 20-19-2, is that good?  
YOUNG GUN must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged 
KRAJ.  14 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought YOUNG GUN 
showed great skill and promise when he overcame KRAJ.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All DAL SHANG ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  DAL SHANG is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

choice from the What's All This Then Tavern. -- Gift Certificate

What happened to the ghost town that was formerly known as Dal Shang?!?  Welcome
everyone!  It's actually looking like an arena. -- Assurnasirbanipal (Manager of Got
it for Christmas)

Hemorrhage -- I figure you must be some kind of dirty, rotten magician, the way you
just HUMMED and I started bleeding!  They had an AWFUL time getting it to stop when I
got to the Infirmary. -- Jaego Sarl
P.S.  One thing I seemed to hemorrhage was skills.  I should charge for that.

Dui -- Try coming into the arena sober next time, hmm? -- Kassal ten Dru

Long Shot -- Well, dammit, you're not supposed to SHOOT in the arena.  No missile
weapons.  It says so...somewhere, doesn't it? -- Jeri Tavan

Tropical Cooler -- Odd, I've always found tropical to be hotter. -- Ko Lao-Den

Lucien -- We'll be here when you come back. -- Sand Dancers

Tropical Cooler -- Congratulations. -- the Sand Dancers

Deadwood -- So where do you bathe, then?  Surely not in the lake! -- Gobarl

that we may ambush them some autumn. -- Ghost of Skordahl

Ugly Duckling -- Well, *I* like "viciously subdued."  It makes me sound...
impressive. -- Gobarl

P.S.  I am numerically unimpressive, which is probably why I'm still alive.

All -- Sorry about the missed turn.  Snail mail SNAFU.  (Being a UPS driver, my
opinion on the USPS is a little biased, though.) -- Woody
P.S.  The challenges are a turn old, hopefully none of them are now down-challenges.

Oltimal the Lame -- Do they pay you standbys very good?  I sure hope so. -- Man-O-War

Six Killer -- Wow that was a bad choice of weapons for me.  I thought it was a good
one.  Guess not.  Good fight. -- Valarion

Another Brick pt 2 -- Did they say start?  I didn't hear him say start....  Did he?
-- Kraj

Young Gun -- Oooh, you're a nasty one. -- Chiana

Hail Dal Shang -- This is Silverbullet, manager of Stumblin' Drunk.  Party at the
Drunken Dragon. -- SB

All -- Well sorry I won't be staying long but I was told I need to go to the Isle of
the Eye.  Still feels funny to be called Lord Protector.  9-6-8-17-21-9-15 scimitar

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
