Til Death Do Us Part guildhouse:

     Lightning crashed across the sky.  Man-O-War hunched under the rain and fumbled
for the door of the guildhouse, remembered the little jiggle the unfamiliar latch
required, and pulled it open.  His companion Sitha Nisanli stepped through; he
thought she muttered something about "a couple of drowned rats," as she shook the
water off her cloak.  He shook his as well and hung both on the waiting pegs.  "Not
completely drowned," he said.  "The meeting room is through here."
     She followed him into a room off the entrance hall, where the rest of the Til
Death Do Us Part stable waited.
     Stopping just inside the doorway, he looked around at the crowded room.  "Okay,
you can start now."
     Across the table, Triss looked at Sitha and frowned.  "Who are you?" she asked
     She inclined her head in a slight bow.  "I am Sitha Nisanli, a Sand Dancer from
     "You can trust her," Man-O-War added, frowning in turn.  "She is a Lord
Protector and my wife-to-be."
     That didn't erase the frown on Triss's face, but she shrugged a little and took
a deep breath, looking around the meeting room in her turn.
     Everyone was in the room.  Joy and Synthia leaned against the wall, Longshot and
Valarion sat at the table to her left, Chianna and Kraj to her right.  Man-O-War and
Sitha stood by the doorway still, but it was shut behind them.
     Triss took another breath and let it out, almost a sigh, then pulled out her
sword and placed it on the table in front of her.  Her eyes darted around the room,
checking the reactions.  Most just sat still, waiting for more information.
Valarion, being a blacksmith himself, was interested and didn't try to hide it.
     "This is Windsong," she began.  "There are four others like it.  It's a sword of
     "'Sword of power'?" Valarion repeated.
     "What do you mean, 'sword of power'," Man-O-War asked.
     "Well, it--"
     "What kind of power?" Long Shot asked.
     "Everyone!"  Killjoy's voice cut across their rising interest.  "Just let her
     "Thank you, Joy.  Maybe I should start over."  Triss thought for a few minutes.
"When I was a child, my father would tell me stories.  Wonderful stories about
dragons and knights and magic.  Father told me that it was very important that I
never repeat any of the stories he told me."  She stopped, her eyes swelling as she
held back tears.
     "Please, just take your time," Sitha said in a comforting voice.  "We won't rush
you, and there will be no more interruptions."
     Triss took a deep breath and let it out slowly, then began again.  "This is what
I was told:

     "A long time ago, even before Sheila Greywand settled on the Isle of the Eye in
the Lake of Mists, there were dragons.  They didn't come from Lirith Kai or Alastari,
or even from Ghea at all, for that matter.  They came from another world.  Now, these
dragons were not the kind you have heard about ravaging the land and hoarding lots of
treasure.  No, these dragons were smarter than that.  Quite intelligent, actually.
They worked with the knights who rode on their backs.  It was a perfect union of
between dragon and human."

     "Wait!  Did you say people rode the dragons?  Like on horses?" Man-O-War asked.
     "Well, kind of.  The dragons were definitely not under the control of their
humans.  They worked together as a team, as friends.  They helped each other out."
     Man-O-War nodded understanding.

     "As with all races," Triss went on, "there were people that sought power for
themselves.  So wars broke out.  Both sides had their heroes.  There was one team of
dragons that stood aside from that, though.  All of the dragons were different in
their own ways, and their powers were different.  The red dragon was fire, the blue
one was water, the white one was wind, the brown was earth, and the yellow was
energy.  All five together were a formidable force.
     "Now, how the dragons got here was never something my father knew.  He guessed
that it was through one of the Chaos Gates, but it was just a guess.  But he did know
who came through first.  It was a rare black dragon, and the very first city it came
to it destroyed without remorse.  The people in that city never knew what hit them,
but the people of neighboring cities did.
     "Not long after the Black Dragon came, the other five arrived.  The brave
dragons and riders were searching for the Black Dragon to bring him back to his home
for, well, trial, or punishment, or whatever they did to a dragon so evil.  But the
people of Ghea didn't see them as saviors, they just saw more of what they were
fighting against.
     "The rider of the Black Dragon had managed to dominate the population of the
world, or at least all of it anyone knew about.  They worshipped him as a god and
defended him against the other dragons when those others found him.  The other
dragons battled against him for many, many years.  There are many stories about those
great battles.  They--the good dragons--would always do their best not to harm the
humans of the world, but sometimes such casualties couldn't be avoided.
     "One fateful day, the rider of the Red Dragon was brought down and nearly
killed, and his dragon was severely wounded.  But during that attack, they had
managed to kill the rider of the Black Dragon.
     "With the black rider dead, and their brother the red rider dying, the dragons
had to make very critical decision.  They could not prevent the red rider's death,
but there was a way to preserve him.  The ceremony that took place was never
described except that the Dragon and the Knight had to be alone.  What happened in
that cave on the Isle of the Eye was amazing.  The result of the ceremony was that
the soul of the knight and the power of the dragon were fused together inside a
sword.  The process did not kill the dragon but made it a guardian of the sword.
     "Years went by.  The Gates were long closed, and there was no word of the Black
Dragon.  But the growing fear and hatred for ALL dragons forced them to go into
hiding.  They decided that it was important for them to stay separated; they didn't
want to cause any more disruption among the people of Ghea.  Eventually the dragons
and their riders all performed the ritual and became on with their swords.  For many
years, the lonely dragons guarded the swords of power, but eventually they grew old
as well.  That's when they had to find guardians for the swords.  My father was a
guardian, and his father, and his father before him."

     Triss pointed at the sword in front of her.  "This is what is left of the White
Dragon and Rider.  Its name is Windsong."  She sat quietly while the team soaked in
all of what she had just said.
     Then Killjoy spoke.  "So, Triss..." she walked over to look at the sword more
closely.  "May I?"
     "Yes," the younger woman answered reluctantly.
     Killjoy picked up the sword and studied it.  "What is it you want us to do?"

Another part of town.
     A dark part of town.

     Four men stood in the rain waiting on someone they really didn't want to see.
     "He gives me the creeps," Maadi said, pulling his cloak tighter around himself 
in the hopes of fending off the rain-soaked wind.
     "He is a professional," Rix said in defense.
     "Yeah... but those eyes."  Maadi shuddered.  "And his laugh.  Have you heard
that laugh?"
     "Shut up!" Eidolon said.  He sounded irritated.  He knew that nothing good could
come from the arrival of Hobgoblin.  And maybe he didn't want to think about the
eyes, and the laugh, either.
     "That's good advice."  Two red eyes popped open in the darkest part of the
     The four men spun around all at once.
     Hobgoblin strolled out to meet them.  "Eidolon.  You talk, the rest keep silent.
What do I need to know?"
     "We have it under control, Hobgoblin.  You can--"  Hobgoblin's dagger placed
firmly against his neck stopped Eidolon in mid-sentence.  The curving blade forced
him to stare up into the rain.
     "Do not assume you are able to tell me what I can or can't do," Hobgoblin said
coldly.  "I won't hesitate to cut your head off and leave you here in this alley."
     "Um... Mr... uh... Goblin, "Maadi started.
     In one move, Hobgoblin pulled out his sword and laid the edge against Eidolon's
neck, replacing the dagger.  The shorter blade he threw at Maadi, and it went into
the man's chest to the hilt.  Rix and Circu stood still and silent as Maadi fell
lifelessly to the ground.
     "What do I need to know!" Hobgoblin repeated, adding a little more pressure on
Eidolon's neck with his sword.  "Don't make me ask again."
     "Jerik and Tirol were found in an inn.  She killed them both."
     "Where is she now?"
     "Missing."  More pressure on his neck made it harder to talk.  "But possibly
with gladiators."
     "Gladiators?  Who?"  Hobgoblin removed his sword from the man's neck.
     Eidolon touched his neck gingerly.  Only a small amount of blood.  Maybe he
would survive this meeting after all.
     "His name is Aranthar.  Arena name Man-O-War."
     "Til Death Do Us Part," Hobgoblin hissed.
     "Yes, that's the one," Eidolon agreed.
     Hobgoblin walked over and pulled his dagger out of Maadi's chest, wiping it
clean on the man's shirt.  Then he turned to Rix and Circu.  "Get yourself a room
somewhere.  I will need the two of you."
     "What about me?" Eidolon asked.
     "Rix, Circu.  Kill him.  Do it now.  I'll meet with you later."
     Eidolon's eyes widened as his two former henchmen pulled out their swords and
advanced upon him.
     Eerie laughter floated through the night.

Til Death Do Us Part guildhouse:

     "So you were a part of this group, and you stole this sword from them?" Killjoy
     "It was mine in the first place," Triss answered.  "My father was a guardian,
and when he died, it became my responsibility."  She dropped her eyes to the table
top.  "But I'm no fighter.  Sure, the sword makes me better, but without it... I have
no training."  She was crying again.
     "Ah.  That's why you went to them.  You told them, didn't you?" Sitha asked.
     Triss nodded as she wiped her tears away.  "Tennerus seemed like a good man.  He
made me feel safe.  But that didn't last long when I figured out what he was going to
do.  He wants to gather all the swords."  She looked up at Killjoy.  "We can't let
him do that.  That's too much power for a man like him to control.  Maybe too much
for any man, but definitely too much for him.  And it's my fault.  He knows about
them because of me."  She looked down again.
     "You did the right thing, Triss, in coming to us," Man-O-War said.  "We will
help you.

     Outside, the streets were dark except for the flashes of lightning.  A figure
stood and stared at the guildhouse.  It was raining harder now, but that didn't
bother Hobgoblin.  He knew what needed to be done.  And he knew what he needed to do.

To be continued.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

      Well, I'm sorry, Killjoy, I didn't MEAN to kill Long Shot.  But he wasn't
wearing any armor to speak of, and he ducked right into my blow, and we ARE using
sharp pointy things out here.  Maybe he can be reborn in a new body?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DAL SHANG games.  Former top team POSSE was unseated 
this week as SAND DANCERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 2-3-0 
record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week MIGHTY DUCKS went 4-1-1 to move up 4 in the rankings.  Did only 
my eyes note the 3-1-0 record which REFUGEES managed to post this round?  I don't 
doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  LONER caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BAY RUM and was awarded 22 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, B.B. SAGE put down ANOTHER 
BRICK PT2, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  As is 
fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none 
other than Duelmaster KASSAL TEN DRU himself.  This time out L.A. WOMAN made hers bid 
for the throne as she challenged KASSAL TEN DRU in an all out contest of skill for 
possession of the title!  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All 
hail L.A. WOMAN, Duelmaster of DAL SHANG!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that 
the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?  
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city DAL SHANG.  I cannot but express pride for the fearlessness of ANNABEL 
BLACKHEART who cast caution to the winds and challenged GIFT CERTIFICATE, a fighter 
33 points higher.  Do not the gods reward courage?  ANNABEL BLACKHEART it was that 
claimed victory in the bout, while also rising 26 points in recognition.  A match 
that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that FRIAR DUCK posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized MADE IT HOME.  The results, you ask?  
Well, the firebrand FRIAR DUCK overcame MADE IT HOME.  Remember warriors, this is the 
discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  I must report the passing of M-1 MALLARD, veteran of many duels.  
5-6-0 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  My 
condolences to MARY'S SOAPS for their loss of a very promising warrior, BAY RUM.  BAY 
RUM went to doom before the arms of LONER, a warrior of MIGHTY DUCKS.  Fate is a 
fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the 
victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in DAL SHANG as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, 
and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

The Dark Knights sat at the Dark Table with grim faces.  All present knew that there

turning back, no mercy and no hesitation to do what was necessary.  Teeth gritted and

In response to the Desolate Empire's declaration of war, the Vendetta Cartel offers
the following response:

The members of the Vendetta Cartel can be found in 1, 8, 9, 10,  11, 14, 22, 25, 28,

confront us, but we suggest you learn to win in your own "home" arena (52) first.
