Under Dal Shang:

     "I admire your will," Hobgoblin said as he lowered Synthia back to the floor.
Her body was badly beaten and bruised.  One of her eyes was swollen shut and black.
A deep bruise around her ribcage probably indicated a broken rib or two and made her
wince when she reached the cold, damp floor of the underground hideout.  "For seven
days you have been my guest."  He pulled a chair closer and sat down, studying her
for any reactions.  "Your family must miss you," he said mockingly.
     She pulled herself up and leaned against the wall.  The chains gave her enough
slack for that when they were fully loose as they were now.
     He leaned in.  "You can make this stop."
     "Die, demon," was all she said.
     "Ha ha ha."  He stood, moved closer, knelt beside her and cupped her chin,
forcing her to look up at him.  "I have done that already."
     She jerked out of his grip and a bolt of pain shot through her from the broken
rib.
     Hobgoblin smiled, baring his teeth.  "Where is the sword, Lord Protector?"
     "Like I said before, I don't know what you're talking about."
     "WHERE IS THAT DAMN SWORD!"  Hobgoblin was furious with frustration.  Synthia
was the one smiling now.  He took a breath and recomposed himself.  "We will see
about that," he said, and walked out.

     Synthia sighed to herself.  It got worse every time he came back, but this was
the first time she had made him that angry.  She would welcome death, if it weren't
for the fact that they would need her body for the resurrection.  Wherever she was
now, it was unlikely that anyone would find her body.  But she would not give up the
location of the sword of power.  Not to anyone, and twice as much not to Hobgoblin.
     So she sat and waited.  There had to be a way to get out of here.
     That's when she noticed Hobgoblin had left his chair within reach.

The Drunken Dragon Tavern:

     Killjoy, Man-O-War, Sitha, Silver Bullet, and Screwdriver had agreed to meet in
the back room every day until something was found.  If there was any news, or any
clue, they would find each other as quickly as possible.
     Killjoy sank into her chair tiredly and looked at Silver Bullet.  "Well, what
have you heard?"
     The gambler shifted and looked away from her.  "I know a lot of... not-so-nice
people in this town," he said, "but nobody knows anything about Synthia."
     "How do you know they're not lying to you?" Killjoy demanded.  Her expression
was a mix of anger, frustration, and... fear.
     "Let's just say we have an agreement," Bullet answered.  "There is no reason
they would lie to me."
     Killjoy's shoulder slumped a little.  "Okay."  She turned to Man-O-War and
Sitha.  "How about you?"
     "Nothing has come up in Harbor Town.  It's quiet," Man-O-War said.
     "Now that the Guards have left, we plan to search the warehouse for clues,"
Sitha added.
     Killjoy was not getting any answers she wanted to hear.  "Speaking of the Guard,
they still have nothing."  Her voice cracked on the last word, and she paused until
she could speak calmly again.  "So we are no closer to finding Synthia, or even
discovering what happened to her."
     Fatigue was showing on all their faces.  None of them had gotten much sleep for
days, and they weren't expecting to get much any time soon.  There was nothing they
could even say to each other that would help, unless they found some new facts.  They
got up.  Bullet and Screwdriver returned to the bar; the others walked outside.
     Joy turned to speak to Man-O-War and Sitha.
     "Ma'am?"  A boy of sixteen years or so stood in front of them, holding a folded
piece of paper.  "I was asked to give this to you," he said, and handed it to Joy.
     She opened it.  A clump of blond hair, stained with some that looked like blood,
fell into her hand.  Her face went white as she read the words on the paper.  "Who
gave this to you?" she snapped at the boy.
     He stepped back and pointed across the street.  "That man over there.
     They all looked, but there was no one there.  Now.
     "What's wrong, Joy?" Man-O-War asked.
     She closed her eyes and took a deep breath.  Man-O-War and Sitha stood silent,
waiting.  She opened her eyes again, exhaled, and said, "Hobgoblin."

Til Death Do Us Part guildhouse:

     Octavia sat back in her chair, and Triss sat across from her.  Over the past few
days, most of the team had been away doing who-knew-what, leaving them to take care
of the house alone.  It gave Octavia plenty of time to search the whole building for
the sword.  And still nothing.  Maybe Tennerus was wrong.  Maybe she--Triss--was not
a sword-bearer.
     "Octavia?"  Triss was leaning forward, waving her hand in front of her
companion.
     "Oh... yes.  I'm sorry."  Octavia blinked.  She had been deep in thought and
hadn't heard a word Triss had said.
     "I asked you why you had become a gldaitor?"
     Octavia had rehearsed the answer to that question a thousand times, but now she
went blank.  "Well... I just wanted to."  It was, she acknowledged to herself, a dumb
answer.  But she couldn't give the true one, not to Triss or anyone else here.
     "Oh."  Triss stared blankly for a moment, having no idea what response to make.
     "What about you?  Are you going to be a gladiator?" Octavia asked.
     "Me?  Oh, no.  I'm not a fighter."
     There was a knock on the outer door.
     "I'll get it," Octavia said, rising quickly.  This conversation was off track,
and she was glad to get out of it.  She opened the door.
     On the front porch stood a man of large build, with dark hair and eyes and
something foreign about the shape of his face.  His clothing was not local.
"Killjoy?" he asked.
     "No, I'm Octavia.  She is--"
     He cut her off with a wave of his hand.  "I'm Bobika Vhett.  Show me her office.
I'll wait for her there."  He stepped inside.
     Octavia drew in her breath with a hiss.  Who did this pushy... who did he think
he was?  But maybe he was someone Killjoy was expecting.  How would SHE, Octavia,
know, if nobody told her.  "Right this way," she snapped.

Under the city:

     Circu walked into the chamber where Synthia was being held.  She was sitting
against the wall, watching him.
     "Hey.  You're Circu, right?"
     "Yes, now be quiet."  He saw that a chair had been broken against the wall and
started to pick up the pieces.
     "Why are you working for him?"
     "I said, shut up."  He stopped to look at her.
     "You will end up dead working with him."
     "Everyone ends up dead.  Now shut up."  He was getting angry.
     "Okay, fine.  Your funeral."  She shrugged one shoulder carefully, then spat on
the floor near his feet.
     "I said shut up!" he snarled, turning to walk towards her.
     As soon as he was in range, she pulled a leg of the broken chair out from behind
her and smashed it against his knee.  He fell, clutching the joint.
     "Like I said," and she plunged the jagged end of the leg into his chest.  It
wasn't quite enough to kill him, but it sure got his attention.  She grabbed his
dagger and finished the job.  "You will end up dead working for him."  After a quick
search, she found some keys on his body and unlocked her hands and feet from the
steel cuffs.
     "Very nice."  The demonic timbre of Hobgoblin's voice was unmistakeable.
     Synthia spun to face him, the dagger still in her hand.
     "I see there is some fight left in you yet," he said, walking into the room with
his sword drawn.  He looked down at the dead Circu and curled his lip in a brief
sneer.  "There's someone I would like you to meet."  He waved his hand at Rix, behind
him in the doorway, and a third person with hands tied and a black hood over his--her
head.
     "What is this?" Synthia asked.
     "'This' is the reason you will be telling me everything I want to know."
Hobgoblin pulled the hood away to reveal Killjoy, gagged.  "You see?  You may be able
to be brought back to life, being a Lord Protector.  But I know she can't."
     Synthia's eyes widened in disbelief.
     "Now.  Where is the Sword?"

Til Death Do Us Part guildhouse:

     Man-O-War and Sitha walked out to the guildhouse from the city gate.  Joy was to
meet them here with supplies for the assault on Hobgoblin.  After a week of getting
nowhere, it was good to have some kind of objective again.
     The door to Killjoy's office was open, which was the first surprise.
     "Well, hello, Cousin," the man on the couch said.
     Man-O-War stared for a moment, shocked.  "Bobika!"  He walked forward, arms
reaching, and the man met him half way across the room.  They embraced.  "How long
has it been?"
     "Too long."  The stranger shifted his attention to Sitha, who was smiling at
them both.  "And you, you are as beautiful as Linsiris herself.  What is your name?"
     "I'm Sitha Nisanli," she said.
     "And my wife-to-be," Man-O-War finished.  "What brings you to Dal Shang?"
     "I'm to become a gladiator," he answered.  "Your stories have brought a few of
us down here.  Too much peace in the north, not enough fighting.  So where is
Killjoy?"
     "She'll be here shortly.  It's great to see you, Bobika."
     "You too, Aranthar.  So, is there anything exciting going on around here?

                                      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.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week REFUGEES went 1-2-0 to move up 3 in 
the rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which STUMBLIN' DRUNK managed 
to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  LISSANE 
TYL DRU caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully 
bested CHIANA and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, LISSANE TYL DRU put down CHIANA, causing her to lose 13 points of 
recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has UGLY DUCKING in the past laid claim 
to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  DAL SHANG, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is STUMBLIN' DRUNK, a guild shunned and avoided 
by many in the weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been 
hard pressed to find any of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS last week.  Busy avoiding STUMBLIN' 
DRUNK?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  GOBARL take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in DAL SHANG.  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that REVEREND BLOOD posted a challenge 
against the more highly recognized JAEGO SARL.  The results, you ask?  Well, the 
firebrand REVEREND BLOOD was beat by JAEGO SARL.  Remember warriors, this is the 
discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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 next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

P.S.  Was that an input error?  The weapon.

bad guys! -- Londel tyl Sarh

Ugly Duckling -- I've been watching you closely for signs of turning into a swan, but
nothing yet.  Seems like it might be a clue:  maybe you really are a duck, and just,
you know, really ugly? -- Gobarl
P.S.  But you do learn well.  I guess that's something.

         without having gone above the Adepts bracket at any time...including
         transferred teams.  (I'll be watching for this occurrence!)
Bloodfeuds:
     a.  Bloodfeuds count for all four (4) turns.  However, the same warrior may not
         be used all four turns.  4 turns means 4 separate warriors.  A penalty of
         -10 will be given to the team who violates this.

     b.  If I make a mistake, I'll multiply the points by 2.

         x10.
     d.  Each alliance begins with zero (0) points.
     e.  Dark Arena may be used on the first turn of every warrior with no penalty
         (this means a warrior with 0 FE).
     f.  TVs won after the contest begins gain a 25 point one time score once the
         tourney reports are posted in the NL.
     g.  TCs won after the contest begins gain a 50 point one time score with the
         same conditions as noted for TVs.
     h.  NO switching alliance once verified by an alliance that a team has declared
         for.
     i.  Only 7 teams are permitted per alliance for the Turf War 5.
PRIZES:
     Turf Wars are a "Winner Takes All" type contest.  All prizes and 100% of the RU
Certs will be given to the Captain of the winning alliance and it is his/her
responsibility to give these to the alliance membership.
     I have requested from RSI the following:
     a.  renaming of the orth Fork (DM 47) arena;
     b.  renaming of Dark Arena Monsters;
     c.  known favourite rhythms for one warrior on each team of the winning
         alliance.  This warrior would be in the Initiates or above brackets on the
         last turn of the Turf War (they must have at least one arena fight to
         receive this award).
               Baphomet, Host of TW5
Special Note:  A downchallenge is considered from a higher bracket to a lower
bracket.  Same bracket, more recognition points?  Not a downchallenge!

In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Apex
     Street Legal
     Carnage
     Ghoti
     Roadkill
     Valamond
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
