                                 Baphomet's Revenge
                                      Part III

     "I have no time to quibble with you, sir," I said while thinking it unlikely I
could live up to these terms and thinking also I must be the one mad to accept them.
"I agree to these terms."
     I literally thought he would begin hopping and dancing at that moment.  He
looked almost cherubic.  As if the greatest of victories could be had with so few
words.  However, I was not of the same mind, disposition, or heart.  My life, up
until this point, had owed allegiance to no man save my sword-brothers.  They at
least, had placed their lives in my hands more than I could count, and I knew without
a doubt I had placed mine in theirs.  This man, other than a few moments and only a
few more words, I knew not at all.  True, I'd crossed paths and blades with more than
a few of his appearing ilk.  Yet, this still could be a deception of the worst kind.
I put nothing past the nobles.  This could very well be a plot to set me at odds and
in greater peril.  Of course, I thought, what could be greater than certain death.
And, if it were a nasty, evil plot, perhaps an opportunity would present itself
whereby I could make my escape.
     I thought this over quickly and concluded, for now, to take him at face value
and accept his offer as sincere and placed my trust in him.  I did not like doing
this, but it was necessary.  If he turned out a trickster, he would die or I would.
And I nearly told him so.  I remained silent though.  Sometimes it is better to
remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove any doubt.
     "I will be back at dusk," he informed me, "be ready to move quickly."
     "For that, you can count on," I said emphatically and trying to sound as if I
believed him.  Which I am not so sure I did.
     During Sir Chester's absence, I thought long and hard about the bargain in which
I'd struck with him.  Live honestly?  With chivalry?  I surely had little experience
with such things.  True, I would deceive nor steal from a sword-brother.  Nor would I
do such things to my men.  Yet, the world was a different story.  Perhaps Hugues
would know how I could accomplish this.  I'd never seen him lie or steal from anyone.
And he did not participate in my criminal activities.  He knew of them, but would not
even accompany me on my forays.  Hugues was older and wise than I.  I was the rash
one.  Not without experience in certain things.  I knew how to inspire and lead men.
But living in this way was beyond my scope of experience.  At least with the general
population.  I certainly hoped Sir Chester did not intend I should give up drinking
and wenching.  Otherwise, either his demise or mine was certain to accompany the
thrust of a sword point.  Fortunately, I learned his intentions were not of this
order at a later date.
     I also pondered his motives for assisting me.  These thoughts nagged my mind
around the edges for the remainder of the day.  No matter how I would try to dispel
the thought, it came back to haunt me.  Why did this gentleman come to my aid?  Who
was I that was so important to be spared death?  Thousands had passed through the
doors into the gallows courtyard and met their fates in death.  Why would I not?
What was this man's motive for assisting me?  From a lifetime of experience, and
especially with dealing with hard and cold men, I knew that rarely will a living soul
offer help who is not thinking of the return for assistance.  There is always the
expectancy of the debt being repaid.  Sometimes sinister, but always returned.
     The remainder of the day passed only be the occasional certain screams and
scufflings of those who were so brutally snatched from the thoughts were interrupted
by the KERPLUNK! of the gallows trap door as it swung to its downward end, and the
snub of the body as it dropped to the end of the rope.  I even imagined the sudden,
bony, SNAP! as the neck twisted sideways and broke.  Or the choking contorted faces
of those who must strangle and swing until they expired.
     The day wore on and as dusk began to settle, my nerves were as twisted and ready
to spring as if I had already been hanged.  I'd spent my last day with only hope and
my imagination to keep me from going stark-raving mad myself.  As night began to
darken and settle, I again heard the scuffing footsteps and jungle of the keepers
keys.  Perhaps an attempt at freedom would be better than waiting patiently for death
to rest its ugly face into mine.
     Set on my course, I moved purposely through the myriad of bodies between myself
and the door.  I would place my life in the hands of fate once again and let whatever
happens happen.  If others escaped, perhaps that would give me the opportunity I
needed to make mine.
     As the door swung open, I grabbed the jailer by his tunic.  As I began the swing
of my fist, I caught a glimpse of Hugues standing just to the right of the door.  I
stopped.  I released the jailer.  But I could still smell his foul breath and the
stench of the clothing he wore.  Must be another of those orcs, I thought.
     The keeper stumbled back.  Recovering, he appeared as if he might make a fight
of it.  Seeing Hugues, I suppose he thought better of it because he checked his
movements rather quickly.  I know I would have.
     Hugues was rather large.  And having a set of blonde curls and blue eyes, the
wenches followed him around like a gaggle of goslings.  They loved him so.  Yet, in a
fight, he was fierce.  Never allowing blood or guts to sway his unceasing ferocity.
     The jailer snapped and snarled.  "I know not what deity you serve, but were I
you, I'd pay tribute.  Your release has been arranged.  You may go," spit flying from
his extending canine teeth.
     He needn't tell me twice.  I was anxious to put this place as far behind me as
possible.  And so Hugues and I left quickly enough.
     "Where do we head," I asked Hugues.
     "To the docks.  A ship by the name of Trident.  Hurry, we've no time to waste.
They are waiting for us," he replied.
     Upon entering the wharf and docks, we kept our heads low and refused to meet the
gaze of others.  We were known here, and we had need of not being recognized.
Fortunately, the darkness was to our advantage.  Hugues led us directly to the ship.
We crossed the gangplank, and were ushered directly to the captain's quarters.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
DRAGONHEAD brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, AGELESS WONDER, since 
FAVORITE THINGS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If The 
Welcome Wench is buying drinks for FAVORITE THINGS' good turn, I'm afraid the place 
will be dry before long.  A 4-1-1 makes for a big thirst.  Now keep the taverns open 
late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for CRIMSON KILLERS, whose 0-0-0 this 
turn dropped them by 6 into 11th.  Ha!  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see EAGLE KEYS win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SOON TO DA beat 
TINY TURK and TINY TURK lost 3 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  2 PHAT challenged 
DRAGONHEAD's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, DRAGONHEAD may be getting bland, as CONSTANTINE stays top dog in the city.  The 
Welcome Wench, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From DRAGONHEAD's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  SNIVELLS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like FAVORITE THINGS avoided them the 
most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  CYOLIS was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have EARLY MORNING in a challenge, going down 8 points for 
the fight.  Guess what?  I thought EARLY MORNING showed great skill and promise when 
she bested CALIBAN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Whoa!  I'll even buy ORPHAN a drink 
tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his good 
side!  It's about time CRAZY TRAIN got beat for picking on warriors like 2 PHAT TOO.  
Bravo, VERMIN.  See you at The Welcome Wench.  We're all going to die in the end, so 
why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of DRAGONHEAD.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back 
of this place-- Snide Clemens

Sultan -- Oops!  Due to some serious financial problems, I've had to take a hiatus
from my play.  But...I'm back. -- Baphomet

Master Darque -- Is that you?  I'm looking forward to meeting you on the sands.  I
see the V.C. has grown.  Much luck in that venture. -- Baphomet

All -- For those who don't know me, you're probably better off.  Yet, let me
introduce myself.  I've played roughly 2.5 years and have a reputation as a big
mouth, insulting behind.  It's well earned.  Yet, I'm an aggressive player and a true
Delarquan.  I run "killer strats" and occasionally downchallenge when provoked.  I
have but one true Nemesis--Heathen (of the Fascist Federation).  Anything else? --
Baphomet, (Knights Templar, Enab Sreganam and many others here in Dragonhead)

Will -- You asked, I came.  Make your move. -- Baphomet

Sultan -- We are new at this.  Why would sitting out a Bloodfeud tick you off?  You
don't have to Bloodfeud, do you? -- Favorite Things

Maximum Ice -- English Lit thought she was going to win that.  Apparently she didn't
do her homework. -- Favorite Things

Belyn of Ageless Wonders -- Pistachio really, really lucked out there.  It must be
because he's nuts. -- Favorite Things

Caliban -- You ruined our dream! -- Favorite Things

Snivells -- I guess money is not all it takes? -- Favorite Things

Vermin -- I hope you didn't take anything personally.  Now the tourney deadline is
past.  I welcome your Bloodfeud.  So send your best.  If you don't kill me.  You
better teach me well.  My fights are limited anyway.  In this place we don't earn
much.  Sorry about your loss.  So sit back and listen to Ozzie. -- Crazy Train

SNI -- Thank you very much for your teaching.  It looks like I learned a few things.
You can get a rematch in a few months.  I am on vacation. -- Evil Woman

Rapid Rabbit -- You tried, but I was laying back.  When I come back, I will fight a
lot harder and faster.  Even different weapons.  Good try though. -- Atomic Dog

Abberan -- You beat a friend of mine.  So he asked me to take care of you.  And I
did.  I will be dead soon.  But I will have fun till then. -- Soon To Die

The Baker -- My bad.  I made the challenge.  You really took it to me.  I'm so
ashamed. -- Atomic Punk 2

All -- Let it be known that the Firm accepts SOL into its ranks.  The Firm is:
SunGod, Dark Spirit, Youngblood, Tripwire, and SOL.
