                               Zalcon Gossip Column #10

I am taking a break from my usual format to do a "Halfway To Graduation?" analysis of 
the stylemaster competitions.

Aimed Blows:  This has been a two man race so far.  Alejandro Pena and Vincent Crabbe 
both have 8-2 records along with 5 PPs.  Vincent has the advantage of collecting his 
PPs from being Duelmaster and the FID winner, just in case neither accumulates the 
needed PPs.  Alejandro has the advantage of a TV challenge, at least until the Summer 
FtF.  No other AB is on pace to graduate by round 20 of the Zalcon.

Bashers:  With Blackout taking the turn off, and it being rumored that Shadowgate is 
quitting the contest, the Basher competition is turning into a two man race as well.  
Bobby and Songbird are both on pace to get the 14 wins, but I think PPs are going to 
be hard to come by for these guys.  They are bashers, after all.  Songbird currently 
has the edge with 5 PPs and a TV challenge, while Bobby has the better record and 
higher recognition at the halfway point.  Something I am sure Songbird is looking to 
change this turn.

Lungers:  This one is still wide open.  Constantine looked to be making a break out 
run but has stalled at the top, just shy of getting any PPs.  Plus Constantine is 
missing a fight so will be one round behind everyone else.  Lord Voldemort is moving 
up in the ranks but has yet to get to the top.  The pair to watch in this race are 
Ganglare and Putz who both just managed to TV and are the only Lungers with any PPs 
yet.  Unfortunately for them they are going to need to use those TV challenges 
effectively since their records are not yet on a twenty turn graduation pace and they 
will need to do some quick climbing to start getting more PPs.

Parry-Lungers:  Glaerikim is the leader here but has yet to translate his 8-2 record 
into a spot in the Champions.  Oscar Sevilla could give Glaerikim some competition if 
he can improve on his slow start.  Other then these two this class looks weak.  If 
Glaerikim stumbles, I think this class with fail to produce a graduate during the 
Zalcon.

Parry-Ripostes:  This group was decimated by early deaths and has yet to recover.  
Prip of Stylists is on a 14-6 pace but has yet to climb high enough in the ranks.  
The PPs will be hard to come by for this group and I don't expect we will see a 
graduate until the very end of the competition, and perhaps not even then.  Although 
Ablaer Blyth might pull it out at the end after a late start.  A 4-1 record with 5 
PPs from a TV bode well for this warrior's chances to steal the title at the end.

Parry-Strikers:  Kirk Gibson and Tony Tavler have both started off on pace but I do 
not expect either will be able to get the political points.  Peacies is the highest 
ranked PS, but has only a 50% record.  That might be enough for this group, though, 
since this will likely be won by the first to be Duelmaster or the highest ranked 
warrior at the end. 

Slashers:  Mickey Hatcher and Adalius are the leaders here.  With the tough strikers 
at the top, though, it is going to be hard for either of these guys to bust through 
and get the Duelmaster's spot in time to graduate before the end of this thing.  That 
leaves room for a young slasher to come up and snatch the victory.  Santiago is 
looking impressive at 5-0 but it remains to be seen if he can perform against the top 
warriors.  But if Mickey or Adalius is learning their decise, one of them might be 
able to surprise one of the strikers.

Strikers:  Tom Riddle, our resident TC, is head and shoulders above the other 
strikers.  His record is well on its way to the required wins, I expect he will be 
challenging for the Duelmaster's spot this turn (and he did just beat Syr-Davan two 
turns ago).  With a TC in the bag and already collecting PPs for being in the 
Challenger Champions, this category is his to lose.  The only question is how will he 
juggle his Zalcon desires and his tournament potential.  Will he sit out and perhaps 
give another striker a chance to graduate before him?  If anyone can do it, Crazy 
Larry would be the only one with a realistic chance.  But he will need to improve his 
record a bit if he is going to take advantage of a possible opening. 

Total Parries:  Most observers expected Manager to walk away with this class after 
having two TP TVs to start off the competition.  But due to a missed turn, both 
Eraser and Cookie Jones are one turn behind.  Meanwhile Dreihden TP has managed to 
start off 10-0 to give the other TPs something to worry about.  Dunderhead and his TV 
have struggled while Erik and Holding Warg have good records but have yet to get out 
of the Initiates.  I predict this class will go to whichever TP can work its way up 
into the CCs and catch a lunger holding the throne.  If any of these guys gets a 
Duelmaster title and the PPs that come with it, they will be the Stylemaster.

Wall of Steel:  Woss and Durany have gotten out to respectable starts but neither yet 
looks ready to make a move for the top.  Although Woss is the top Challenger Adept 
and could cause some trouble for all the strikers that are huddled at the top.  Once 
again I think the PPs are going to be hard to come by for this group, leaving it open 
till the end.

Overall:  There are a couple warriors in each style that have shown the ability to 
get the wins needed to graduate but I doubt there will be enough Political Points to 
go around.  With the exception of a couple classes, it is going to go down to the 
last turn.  Good luck to everyone!

     Suicide was sitting in the recliner reading the reports when he heard a knock at 
the door.  Talat came running and opened the door.
     "How many times do they have to be reminded of knowing who is at the door before 
they open it?" Suicide thought.
     Talat closed the door.  "That was some weird thing."  He looked at Suicde and 
shrugged.  "There was no one there."
     Suicide's eyes became slits.
     "I picked this off the steps," Talat said holding out a scroll to Suicide.
     Suicide nodded to Talat and he undid the scroll and began reading.  "It says 
someting about demons are in hell calling for a reprisal of old deeds that need to be 
settled.  A boat at an empty dock a skulls will take thy to the beginning of the end 
or the end of your souls."  Talat looked up from the scroll.  "It don't make no 
sense."
     "Keep reading," Suicide said.
     "Well let's see.  Oh yea, something about the old ones who were run out are 
trying to make a comeback and you and your allies have been seeked and recommended."  
Talat rolled up the scroll.  "That's it."
     Suicide nodded.
     "Does it make sense to you?"
     Again Suicide nodded.  "A long time ago the so called wise men of the underworld 
wanted to make peace with the surface dwellers and it backfired in their faces, so 
when the younger ones came to power the old timers again wanted to make amends so to 
speak, but we tossed the grave seekers into the abyss and thought we would be done 
with them forever and now they want to try a comeback."
     "So what are you going to do?" Talat asked mesmerized by what he heard.
     "We are going to see what Fahkry has to say, but I am going to the black dock 
and then go to the dwelling of the demons."
     "The black dock is unused and mostly destroyed," Talat said.
     "And that is why that one is used because no one else will be there.  I hope for 
the moron's part that no one is there."

               ________________________________________________________

     Inside the Rusted Blade Fahkry, Ivory, Snake Face and Hisser were at a corner 
table talking about the toll that was being taken on them.
     "All this talk about not being able to go all out is bull," Hisser said.
     "I agree one hundred percent," Ivory said.  "I mean, like come on, I do not get 
paid by the minute."
     "Totally," agreed Hisser.
     A man came over.
     "No we do not need any more ale," Fahkry said.
     "I am not here for that.  Some person in a blue coak asks for you in the far 
corner over there," the man said pointing to a place where visibility was very 
limited.
     "I don't like it," Snake Face said.
     "Don't worry," Fahkry assured them.  "Probaly someone asking about the fights or 
something."
     "I don't like it," Snake Face said.
     Fahkry walked over to the spot, but no one was there.  He looked around as the 
man who told him someone was over here came up beside him.
     "There was a person sitting in that chair," the man said pointing to the chair 
in the corner. 
     Fahkry walked over to the chair and found a scroll.  He picked it up and tucked 
it under his padded leather.
     "If I see that person again I'll call you right over."
    Fahkry shook his head.  "I doubt that'll be necessary."
     The others at the table looked at Fahkry as he came back.  
     "Well who was it?" asked Hisser.
     "Nobody," Fahkry said.
     "Never heard of him," Ivory said twirling her hair.
     Fahkry shook his head.  "I found this and I think it is from the demons of the 
underworld."  He pulled out the scroll.  "Just what I thought.  It seems the old ones 
are trying to over take the outer regions of hell and force the inhabitants back to 
places not known to them."
     "Hold up," Snake Face said.  "You trying to say demons are being run out of 
their dwellings?"
     Fahkry nodded.
     "Man that's just hogwash," Snake Face said.
     "A long time ago the old ones who were supposed to be watchers of the underworld 
started to take control.  Then they wanted outsiders to dwell with us, but it didn't 
work out that way.  Good thing we were able to take back the control and we thought 
we got rid of the watchers but it seems they are back.  A boat is goign to be at the 
black dock and we set sail for no man's land."
     "Hold up," Hisser said standign up.  "You telling me that we are going to a 
place where humans should not be."
     "In so many words," Fahkry said.
     "Oh hell no!" Hisser said, shaking her head.
     "Don't worry..." Fahkry managed to get out.
     "Don't worry says you," Hisser said.  "I got a lot to worry about."
     "It's not like you are going in alone.  Hell who says you're going in?"
     She looked at her manager.  "Oh now you don't want me to go.  John said you 
would do this to me."
     "Who the hell is John?" Fahkry asked.
     "I don't know. It was the first name that popped into my head."
     "Look, we are going to see it all the way through," Fahkry said taking a swig of 
ale."
     "I'm right behind you," Snake Face said.  Ivory agreed.  
     Fahkry got up.  "It is time we got back to the penthouse to show Suicide this."
     "I do not think he is going to like it," Hisser said.
     They started to walk out when UpInYa and Drips came in.
     Snake Face pulled out a scimitar.  "I hope you make a move."
     "Awl, does the little boy wanna play," Drips said.
     Fahkry pulled out his longswod and swung and Drips who managed to avoid the blow 
by inches. 
     "This ain't fair," UpInYa said backing towards the door.
     Ivory grabbed a chair and carcked Drips in the back, sending him forward into 
Fahkry who bashed in his mouth with the hilt of his longsword.
     UpInYa ran out the door without looking back.
     Drips lay motionless on the floor.
     "Well I guess we know who his top warriors are," Ivory said.
     "Yea and why UpInYa never actually fights," Hisser put in.
     "Let's go," Fahkry said and they headed out of the door.

               ________________________________________________________

     Inside the penthouse Suicide, Luna Vachon, Talat and Snake Bite were packing a 
couple bags.  
     "We are taking just the bare essentials," Suicide said, looking over things.
     Snake Bite looked at her list.  "Let's see, twelve torches, rope, flint, wine 
skins, four bottles of scotch, seven bottles of jin and four jars of jelly, plus we 
have our weapons."
     "And skills," Luna Vachon put in.
     Stevie Ray came in.  "I picked up the items you asked for."
     Sucide nodded.  "We have everything."
     "Yea and I had a little left over to rent a wagon."
     Suicide studied Stevie Ray.  "You what?"
     "Uh, rented a wagon."
     Suicide smiled.  "A wagon," he said softly.  He took a step closer to Stevie 
Ray.  "Why the hell would we want a stinkin' WAGON!"
     Stevie Ray fell over the love seat and scooted to the wall to help himself back 
to his feet.
     "In my list I said nothing bout a wagon," Suicide said calmly.
     "No," Stevie Ray said.
     "So why did you get a wagon?"
     Stevie Ray straightened up.  "I thought it would be easier to carry all this."  
He waved his hand at the six bags and other items that lay on the living room floor.
     The door opened up and Fahkry, Ivory and Hisser came in.
     "Man I got some news," Fahkry said.
     "We're going to the underworld to reclaim what is ours," Suicide said.
     Fahkry nodded.  "Now this is what I..."  He looked at Suicide.  "Who told you?"
     "Got a scroll," Suicide said.
     Fahrky pulled out the scroll in his padded leather.  "Me too."
     "We're leaving tonight," Suicide said.
     "What about dinner?" Luna Vachon asked.
     Talat came into the living room with the scroll that was laid on the front step.  
"My guess is they were sent by the same person."
     "Oh, you think," Fahkry said.
     "Look, tonight we leave.  Stevie Ray brought a wagon.  We'll ship the things in 
that."  Suicide looked at the others.  "What?"
     "Just a wagon, no horses," Talat said.
     "I didn't have enough for horses," Stevie Ray said.
     Fahkry shook his head, "Talat go russel up some horses."
     "Why me," Talat asked.
     "Cause I said so."
     Tlat nodded.  "Good reason."
     "Get this gear ready," Suicide said, "cause tonight we ride."
     Fahkry looked at his scroll.  "It says when the sun is black and the moon is 
red."
     "Sun out," Suicide said.
     "What does that mean?" Luna Vachon asked.
     "When the sun can't be seen, but the heat from it makes the moon look red."
     "On," Luna Vachon said.
     Ivory put the bag in order by size.
     "Just grab some bags and take them to the wagon," Suicide said.
     Snake Bite came from the kitchen with a couple slices of toad's pie.  "Who said 
something bout dinner?"
     "Never mind that," Suicide said.  "We have to get to the dock before it's too 
late."
     "Aren't we being too hasty.  I mean it ain't like they'll leave witout us," 
Fahkry said.
     "You kiddin right?" Suicide sked.  "Not only will we be left behind but it'll be 
long while before we are able to show our faces in the underworld again and by the 
time that does happen the ninth generation'll be taken over."
     Fahkry nodded and grabbed the last bag.  "Hopefully Talat is on his way back by 
now."
     Stevie Ray shook his head.  "Probably had to ask what a horse was."  He looked 
at the others.  "Come on you gotta admit that was funny."
     Ivory shook her head.
     Fahkry started pacing the floor.
     "Come on man," Suicide said.
     "I was hoping he would be back by now," Fahkry said.
     "He just left not too long ago," Suicide said.
     "In a couple he shoudl be back," Fahkry said going to his snake skin high back 
chair.
     "Python can manage the gear along with me," Stevie Ray said.
     "Oh no," Ivory said.  "No way we put you two together to trash the boat and 
anything else you two think you can destroy."
     Talat came in.  "I stole two fairly good horses."
     "Very good; let's go," Fahkry said.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hardly an ideal match for you, Death Strike, but then, there ARE no ideal 
matches.  The longer you fight, the more clearly you will realize that.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of DAIYLA KIV!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  DAIYLA KIV 
watched with glee as STYLISTS got knocked off top spot by SLYTHERIN HOUSE!  You know 
what they say about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  GREEN COBRAS moved up 
11 places, to 14th.  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not NOPE's opponents, 
after watching them shoot up the ranks from 33rd to 20th.  Phhbltt!  Too much 
drinking and too little dodging gave ARENA FELINES a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out 
of it!  Some people say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat 
myself.  I ramble.  Well PARTY GEEKS moved up 5, to 13th.  What's with GONIF?  He 
actually beat SUPERIOR FORCES ZC's <FOLGER'S CRYSTALS>, and walked away with 25 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at WIMPS OF CARNAGE while they watched GONIF 
clobber <FOLGER'S CRYSTALS>.  He lost 23 points and got bruised from objects thrown 
from the stands.  Another fighter (TOM RIDDLE 9-2-0) challenged another Duelmaster 
(SYR-DAVAN 15-17-2).  Life goes on.  I'm sure DAIYLA KIV is excited about TOM RIDDLE, 
the new Duelmaster from SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  (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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, SUPERIOR FORCES ZC!  The bums at CRIMSON EAGLES couldn't face the 
challenges from SUPERIOR FORCES ZC!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling 
of being the most challenged warrior, DREIHDEN TP!  Don't make idle boasts, they may 
come back to haunt you.  DREIHDEN TP didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he 
received from NOVICES of TC'S ARE US, who is 25 points below him.  NOVICES perhaps 
got his just desserts, seeing as he lost to DREIHDEN TP and ended up with 43 
recognition points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights 
that INGVAR gets in.  He fights people like KRAZY KAT, 14 points below.  I thought 
INGVAR showed great skill and promise when he was subdued by KRAZY KAT.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of DAIYLA KIV unite.  You have only your games to lose!  PEST of WIMPS 
OF CARNAGE didn't know when to quit.  When you've got a 6-5-0, that's a good sign.  
Now he's dead.  BOBBY was plum wore out after DREIHDEN PLUNGER pounded 'im silly in a 
Bloodfeud.  FORCE OF FIVE'll have to get a little better before going after DREIHDEN 
PLUNGER again!  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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

Stevie Ray -- First of all you are not family and second it was from a lack of trying 
-- Kinslayer

snake face -- yes you may have beaten im just a girl for what she is but you didnt 
beat her because she was a girl, anyways let me ask you this how do snakes well your 
snakes anyways fair against tarapyns? -- YoungBlood

eraser -- sorry for the beat down, had to avenge my loss to you a few turns back. so 
how does it feel to have a suprize challenge that your not ready for. -- tarapyn

suicide, fahrky -- still losing and still running your mouths looks like your getting 
ran straight out of this contest so why even bother any more....losers -- YoungBlood

garfield -- truly sorry for your loss i really do not try to kill warriors with 
tarapyn even though he is well able to i usually just look for the win.  i am however 
looking for your bloodfued you deserve a shot at avenging toonces death. -- 
YoungBlood

Placid -- At least you no longer have to worry about the bloodfeuds.  My thanks to 
you, sir, for taking the challenges well. -- Father William

Ironhand Orc -- My onus with you is abated.  The blood has been satisfied, hopefully 
you have learned your lesson that killing is wrong. -- Santiago

Bobby -- Hey, no fair.  You can't go kill a man and pass me in the rankings! -- 
Songbird

Krazy Kat -- Poor challenge for you.  You should figure out what a woman is learning 
before you make assumptions. -- Virgin Queen

Isandel -- I am a terrible warrior.  What does that make you? -- Black Orpheus

Snake Bite -- Thanks for the kind words.  I'm ready whenever you are. -- Tony Tavler

Mickey -- Wow.  Impressive.  Nice rating too.  Go away. -- Tony T.

Gonif -- Deja Vu? -- Oscar

Mourning Star -- I was relieved that the surgeons were able to put you back together 
in the infirmary.  Apparently it was a very close call... but... I was wondering...  
While they were working on you, were they able to remove that foot from your mouth? 
-- Dreihden TP

Bobby -- Are you ready? -- Dreihden Plunger

Putz -- Thanks... and now I'm really dead. -- Ghost of Dreihden Slasher

All -- My newest creation, Dreihden Lunger, will be entering the Lunger Stylemaster 
competition. -- Dreihdenflahg

Syr-Davan -- Congratulations on becoming Duelmaster.  Time for another of our 
'tedious' (at least for you) bouts. -- Tom Riddle

Syphillus -- You are the disease and I am the cure.  Challenge me again and I will 
eradicate you. -- Lord Voldemort

Tilean -- Thanks, chap.  Seems that strength training finally did me some good. -- 
Draco Malfoy

Apu -- Guess there are a lot of lame blokes here I can beat. -- Gregory Goyle

Hanval the Claw -- Thanks for stepping in to give me an opponent. -- Tom Riddle, 
Duelmaster in waiting

Glaerikim -- Interesting desperation strategy, it almost worked. -- Vincent Crabbe

Zalcon Gossip Columnist -- Hmm...which alliance could you be referring to when you 
say "currently have five of the top ten warriors"?  The Brotherhood of the Blade has 
received no favors or special considerations from the Gladiatorial Commission.  Your 
implication otherwise is libelous. -- Salazar Slytherin

Snake Face -- Yes, you beat I'm Just A Girl, but I don't think you can say the same 
about snakes and tarapyns now could you. -- Young Blood

(Eraser) -- Nothing personal, just thought I would try to even up the score, and 
whatta ya know.  There has been a few changes to Tarapyns wit since we last fought 
and he also ran a little different as well. -- Young Blood

All --I would like to announce Bonecrusher in the Basher contest.- The Greek Guy

All -- I would like to announce Deep Flesh Wound in the slasher competition. -- The 
Greek Guy

<-----------> -- How embarrassing to lose to someone with a name that starts and 
finishes like yours. -- Dunderhead

Oscar Sevilla -- Well, you sure took care of my tummy tuck. -- Gonif

Ablaer Blyth -- I feel quite honored to be the recipient of your TV challenge.  I'm 
very sorry that I couldn't make it look like a good fight. -- Pest

Father William -- Fourth time is a charm.  Are you done now? -- Placid

Hafgan -- I was quite surprised to find you as my opponent.  I was sure my TV 
challenge would go thru.  I guess what I have heard is right.  That your first TV 
never goes thru. -- Putz

All -- Well, it sure looks as if we Wimps are doing our job, making you all look 
good.  With a 0-5 turn there are several more looking good.  I haven't heard much in 
the way of thanks for our services.  I hope that we are not being taken for granted.  
Another turn like this last one, without thanks, will lead me to the conclusion that 
we are not wanted.  There are other contests where we will be appreciated. - Wimpy

Alejandro Pena -- You should never have lain down in the street.  That made you easy 
game. -- Street Sweeper

Songbird -- (recoiling)  You're a GUY? -- Pelak ten Zorn

Draco Malfoy -- I can see that the whole idea of me getting a winning record is just 
one of those pipe dreams, isn't it? -- Tilaen tyl Sanh

Stan the Man -- Wow, where did you PUT all those skills?  I didn't even know I knew 
'em to teach 'em. -- Donstan
P.S.  Or did you just make them up?

Tom Riddle -- Naturally.  Why else would you be here? -- Syr-Davan

Kalkin -- For the moment, I'm not starting anything as circumstances have put me in 
Firebird City instead of at home.  Among other things (heat, pollution, not having my 
notes handy), it means extra work.  I meant to send you a diplo last time, but it 
didn't come off.  Probably won't have one this time, either, as I left your diplo and 
preface back home.  In the mean time, your most recent letter received--just as I was 
heading out--and I will pass it along to the relevant people.  But I hope you aren't 
holding your breath. -- Olinda

Darth Declawed -- You are a great warrior, but I'll be back to get my revenge.

Drips -- You got lucky to get my basher, but you will not keep the luck up.  I will 
be looking for you. -- Fahkry

Ageless Wonder -- You have been hiding and running and it seems I caught up to you 
this time.  All your skills mean nothing to me. -- Fahkry

Asneff, Asneff, Asneff, wake up Asneff.  Oh that's right.  You are dead. -- Talat

Kirk Gibson -- Thanks for the good fight.  See you again soon. -- Hisser

Prip -- Nice challenge. -- Snake Bite

Driehden TP -- You just barely got away from me.  I think that I've got you "fine 
tuned" now.  Next turn, if I still live, I'll be back! -- Mourning Star

Auldrymbrei -- Here I come again!  I just hope that you are NOT avoiding me. -- 
Mourning Star

Snake Bite -- Don't you run from me.  Let's dance! -- Sushi-Q

Demon Dunghead. -- You stink! -- Kalkin

Dreihden Plunger -- You broke one of my shields; thankfully my manager let me get 
another one from the local body shop. -- Scum

Fahkry -- All the turn coats.  Is there a sale I'm not aware of or something or is 
everyone just scared. -- Suicide

UpInYa -- You seem to say a whole lot for someone not really into talking.  Be very 
careful that the shadows that are behind you don't get a little too close and whammo. 
-- Suicide

All -- The time for the kill is now.  We are not taking things lying down.  We are 
going for the jugular and not looking back.  Run with the demons or get consumed by 
the flames.  And the demons are for life. -- The Demon Duo    

Luna Vachon and Scum -- Just so you know, it took better men than you to bring down 
Dunvegan.  Here is what you missed:  9-5-19-15-17-4-15, Ambidextrous, High Attack, 
and Low Defense wit comments, can do TREMENDOUS DAMAGE.  Not bad for a girl. -- Lance 
Turbo

Wish I had more time to do this...See you on the sands. * Lance Turbo -- Cat Fight

30 April 2003
All -- Remember to put your arena number on your strategy sheets.  Strategies turned
in without an arena number run the risk of missing the turn. -- NAIEI

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
