Zuwayza:

     Tankesh didn't waste time cursing, he had a decision to make, and fast:  fight 
or flight.  He could take the two men that were supposed to "teach him better 
manners," and their captain and the rest of his men as well, come to that.  He wanted 
to.  But would it forward his mission, which was to get into the Kashka, kill the 
traitor, restore Kasarya to her rightful position, make sure the Andorian League came 
out of the whole mess looking good, and get out safely himself?  Or run, change his 
appearance yet again, and try a different approach?  Prudence said he should run, but 
he didn't want to.
     "You leave him alone!" Kasarya screeched.
     Tankesh half sighed, half grinned.  That would do it!  No guard liked taking 
orders from a civilian, and damned few Karnhorns could bear to take orders from a 
woman, and then when you throw in the apparent difference in class....  He turned, 
dropping into a hand-to-hand fighting stance.  No point in killing these men if he 
didn't have to; they were just doing their jobs.
     Party of five, two men dismounted and carrying clubs.  Okay, clubs he would 
fight bare-handed until he could grab one and turn it on the other.  But if either 
one drew a sword, they were dead men.  He feinted to the left, wove right, and then 
darted toward the left-hand man and grappled briefly, seizing his club in time to 
turn and parry the other fellow.  The right-hand man staggered a little when his blow 
met unexpected resistance, but he recovered fast.  So did the one Tankesh had 
disarmed, grabbing him from behind in a bear hug.  Tankesh slammed his head back, 
butting the bear-hugger in the face, stamped on the man's foot, and twisted free.
     By this time, the other two guardsmen had gotten their mouths closed and were 
dismounting, drawing swords.  So much for Mr. Nice Guy.  His sword slid into his hand 
as he turned and moved to put the wall at his back.  If the women had any sense--and 
Kasarya, at least, should--they'd get out of the way.
     Taynisya took a step forward and said, "Do not kill him!  This is the man for 
whom the Vizier has been searching, and he must be delivered to the Kashka alive."
     Tankesh took note, in the back of his mind, that this had been a trap all along.  
Taynisya would pay for that, but later.  Right now... nobody told him that he had to 
keep these Karnhorn Palace Guards alive.  Especially not that captain, sitting on his 
horse and waiting for his men to "teach the peasant manners."  Afraid to do his own 
dirty work?  Or did he just feel that he was above such things?  Whichever, he was 
going to find himself in trouble soon enough....
     Tankesh took out the first swordsman before the man could get set, with a 
slashing sweep to the sword arm that crippled it.  Then spun back to drive off one of 
the club-wielders he'd fought first, back to the second swordsman....  The action 
flowed into a blur guided by instinct and years of training, years that even the best 
of these guardsmen couldn't match.  They were probably good enough to dominate 
peasants, but that wasn't good enough to take HIM.
     Which the captain seemed to recognize, finally.  He drew his own sword and 
leaped down from his horse.  Off-hand shortsword for parrying, Tankesh noted, and 
steel back- and breast-plates instead of the leather worn by his men.  The captain 
moved like a man who knew what he was doing, too, probably trained in one of the 
better local schools, maybe even a local duelist... but could he equal a gladiator?  
And would the other men, the two that weren't badly hurt, stay out of it?  He heard 
the sounds of a scuffle off to the side, and Kasarya cursing, but couldn't turn to 
look.  With luck, she had taken out one of the guardsmen; at the least, she was 
keeping the man busy.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KYR'TERR once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, 
SHADOW GOLD.  But how many friends do you have now?  Hmmmph!  I always thought SHADOW 
MAGIC was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 1-1-0!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n 
down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, DARQUE 
FORCES' 1st moved them up to 4-1-0 place.  What's with MORROLAN E'DRIEN?  He actually 
beat KYR'TERR's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 20 more points from the 
fight.  I'm sure KYR'TERR is excited about BEER, the new Duelmaster from STUFF I 
BROUGHT.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters 
with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was CASTLE BLACK.  In my day, no team with a 75-52-3 would scare me 
off!  What's the problem, DARQUE FORCES IV?  How well I know the feeling of being the 
most challenged warrior, SHADOW HAWK!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that 
ALIERA gets in.  He fights people like LOKI, 8 points below.  I thought ALIERA showed 
great skill and promise when he lost to LOKI.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

To All -- Fellow managers, I humbly request your help.  My team (Ex Oblivione) was
started in Monuntial (DM 34) back in '92.  They were active for seven months.  I have
lost all early traces of them.  If any of you can help with copies of relevant
newsletters or, if you fought one of my warriors, copies of the fights, I would
greatly appreciate it.  I only have one of my original warriors left from the early
team now active in DM 60.  You can diplo me with any info here in the wonderful city
of Aradi.  Thank you in advance. -- Enigma, manager Ex Oblivione
