entirely.  I wonder where the Folstrom found him?"
     "Stop wondering and ask your questions," Onuphre suggested.  "He isn't going to
last long, as much blood as he's lost."
     Tamea gave the Shew a look that would have put a dagger to shame for sharpness
and addressed a brisk question to the prisoner in a language none of the other
gladiators recognized.
     The man stared at her blankly, then mumbled a few words.
     The witch frowned and rapped out another question in what sounded like a
different language.
     The man shook his head feebly.
     "Those other people make my head spin," Debby Tonte announced.  She was glaring
at the main body of lancers, who were still rippling and fading in and out of
solidity.  "They make me feel like I forgot the umbrella in my drink, or, you know,
no olives.  I don't like it."
     Bellerophon and Mr. Testosterone turned to look at the larger group again.  It
didn't appear to offer much danger, if the lancers couldn't even rejoin the active
universe.
     "That sphere the banner-man is carrying!" Mr. Testosterone said suddenly.
"Could that be the Eye we're looking for?"
     Ultraist* squinted at it and nodded once.  "It could be," the big Aruaki
admitted.  "It looks pretty much the way the Eye looked--if it was the Eye--when I
saw it last.  But how would they come to have it?"
     "If that's the Eye of the South," Bellerophon answered briskly, "it doesn't
matter how they got it.  We have to get it back."
     This declaration gathered the attention of the whole group that had originally
set out from the Isle.  After the delays and disappointments experienced so far, the
possibility of actually being able to accomplish their task was invigorating.
     "How do we get it from them?" E.A. Polecat demanded.  "They aren't all here, I
mean, they're not in this world completely, and if they can't touch us, we can't
touch them, right?"
     "We can get right in among them with our swords drawn," Skirnir suggested.
Holding his blade at the ready, he moved forward as he spoke.
     The others rushed to join him, out of loyalty and duty and from a simple desire
to have, finally, a clear fight that they could win.  Because they were going to win.
At their near approach, the lancers seemed to get a firmer grip on reality and become
solid, or nearly so, but at the same time many of them began to age with appalling
swiftness, as though all the years they had slept through were falling on them at
once.  Skirnir, who found himself paired with Black Skull, the retired Rocani Lord
Protector, headed for the banner man who had what was probably the Eye of the South.
Bellerophon and Natasha Knight targeted the leader of the troop, and the other
gladiators spread out to do as much damage as they could.
     The man with the banner and the Eye shouted when he found himself beset by two
warriors, and others rallied to his side, including the leader.  The battle was brief
but fierce, the end inevitable.  Though they had the advantages of numbers and of
being mounted, the lancers were weary and confused, and when one of them took a
deadly wound, he rapidly collapsed into a pile of bones that crumbled to dust.
     Black Skull looked over the seen of the battle, shaken.  Nothing remained of the
men they'd fought, who had fought them with the fierceness of desperation, but dust
drifting away on the wind, and a few pieces of age-weakened metal--spearheads, a
helmet or two, a buckle....  "That was..." he shook his head, unable to think of a
word to describe his feeling.
     "It was as bad, in its way, as though we'd lost," Bellerophon said grimly.  "But
we won."  He stepped carefully through the dust to the spherical stone, white and
dead as the moon, that might be all that remained of the Eye of the South.
     "Better not to touch it!" Ultraist advised, coming up beside him.
     "Right!  Remember what it did to that poor dragon!" Debby Tonte added, joining
them.  She rummaged in her straw bag and pulled out a large towel.  "Roll it into
this, so you can carry it safely.  We can take it back to HER, and then forget about
it.  And the sooner the better, too!"

*Ultraist is now known as Sylvester Frothingslosh.

Talahya?

     Scarlatti knelt on the stony beach and scooped a hand through the water, sniffed
it, then touched his tongue to it.  "Salt.  This is weird.  Only something really
strange could change a freshwater, inland lake to salt water."
     "Unless," Fizban repeated, "it's not the lake we remember."
     "Well, that'd be pretty strange, too."
     Rogan cleared his throat.  "That isn't all that's strange," the blind man said.
     "You sense it, too?" Moonjumper asked.  "But of course, you would--"
     "We aren't in Talahya," Rogan confirmed.  "At least, in no part of Talahya I've
ever encountered, and we were walking a known route.  I sense a different pattern of
buildings and open spaces around us."
     "We passed through some sort of Gate," Moonjumper added.  "I sense quite a
different pattern of energies around us, as well.  So what do we do now?"  She turned
to Fizban and Carris Fallstar.  "How do we go about investigating...whatever it is
that makes this not the Isle?"
     Before the old wizard could answer, Carris said, "We were headed for the ferry
docks on the Isle, and we've come to a shore.  Maybe there are ferries near here.
Let's find 'em."
     "Why?" Scarlatti asked.
     "Why not?" the elf countered.  "It's a place to start."

Lirin Kiv?

     The town that finally emerged from the fog bore some resemblance to Lirin Kiv,
but it was definitely not the Adantri town.  The architecture they could see was
similar in style, but different in detail, the streets were laid out in different
curves and lined with different trees, some of them totally unfamiliar to Shylock and
Clemenda.  Where the Temple of Mantor should have been was a temple to...somebody
else.  By the symbols on the facade, some kind of solar deity, Shylock thought.
     The carriage came to a stop, and the driver dismounted again, to peer anxiously
through the window at his passengers.  "I don't know where we are," he admitted, "but
it's nowhere I've been before.  Now what?"
     "See if there's anything like an arena here," Shylock ordered.  "If there is,
it'll be a point of contact, I think."
     "Where do I look?"
     Shylock bit back an exasperated comment which wouldn't help.  The man was
stupid, but it would do no good to rub his nose in that dismal fact.  "Look where you
would expect to find the Lirin Kiv arena, if this were Lirin Kiv and that was the
Temple of Mantor."
     The driver clambered back onto his perch and set the horses in motion.
     "Something this strange, Lady Sheila would have to know about it, wouldn't she?"
Clemenda asked.  "I've always understood that she knows about every bit of magic
that's performed on the Isle."
     "Maybe she's not paying attention," Shylock answered.  His eyes gleamed at the
possibilities opened up by Sheila not paying attention.  "She's got other things on
her mind, I suppose--the decline in the Arcanum and all that...."  He frowned
slightly.  "Wherever we are, THIS Arcanum hasn't declined!"

                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

Hello, all!

Last turn was a fine example of out with the old, and in with the new as I took the
throne away from that muncher, Grass Munch, in a pretty exciting fight that was back
in forth, but finally ended in my favor.  It's nice to know that every now and again
I can beat a lunger!!  It will be interesting to see who this turn's fight will be
against.  I'm not sure how many TV challenges there are out there, but I know Killer
Joe has one for sure.  He's the same style as me so that could be an interesting
match...he's from one of those blood-thirsty arenas and I'm from fun-loving Aradi
where nobody kills anything on purpose (or at least, that's how I remember it).
Whomever I fight, I hope you go down in flames...die, Die, DIE!!!!

If I am lucky enough to win my next fight, I will try and go a bit more into my past
and let you know how I've become the successful warrior who addresses you today.  Of
course, much of this came from the astute managerial skills of Destitute Noble (at
least that's what he told me to say), some also came from inherent skill, but a lot
of my success is derived from my armor.  That's right, my armor!  Usually, only
scummy warriors benefit from their armor selection, but I do feel that wearing a nice
suit of leather, or padded leather really gets me in the proper state of mind to do
battle.  Even when I've donned ringmail (which is not often) I wear some leather
underneath, just to give me that "at-home" feeling.  It was this fondness of the
material that helped spawned my fighting moniker many years ago (at least my first
name...the last came from my penchant to rebel against Noble's rather strict training
practices and curfews).

I do plan on representing our arena in the upcoming tournament as an "eligible-rated"
warrior.  Eligible for what, I'm not sure...likely eligible to be beaten to death by
many lungers, but I'll give it a good try.  If I can keep on my toes and keep my
longsword in my hand I'll take my chances against just about anybody.  It may be my
last tournament before being inducted to Primus, where I will retire and give up
immortality (if Sheila lets me) to live out the rest of my natural life.  I've heard
tell that this is possible, but I'll wait 'til I get the chance to speak with her
myself...!  Good luck to all this upcoming turn and tournament!!

Leather Rebel

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

My friends and fellow Talcamans,

     Thank you, Leather Rebel, for a fine Tower Guardian's column.  I don't really
know whether Lady Greywand would revoke your immortality if asked, or not.  I haven't
heard of that request being made, but then, maybe it just hasn't been made publicly
before.
     The Democrats (team ranking 51 this time) avoided the Balrogs (52; they didn't
fight this cycle anyway).
     TAXES (22-1661) (16-12-0,69) of THE DEMOCRATS was first among the crowd of
warriors who challenged RIFF-RAFF (3-5710) (42-40-4,75) of TRANSVESTITES.  TAXES was
defeated by RIFF-RAFF in a 1 minute Challenge match.
     No one, thank goodness, was killed this cycle.  I know it isn't permanent, but I
have heard that being brought back is even more unpleasant than getting killed in the
first place.
     We had but one Tournament Victor challenge, though according to Leather Rebel
there is at least one other Tournament Victor in the arena.  TAPS (96-841) (8-7-5,51)
of MUSIC TO KILL BY TV challenged JONES (14-1283) (17-93-4,44) of MIKES.  TAPS bested
JONES in a 2 minute Challenge fight.
     KILLER JOE (96-611) (28-14-5,309) of AVERAGE JOES has a TV challenge, according
to our presiding warrior.  However, he seems not to have used it as he dueled ROAD TO
DAKAR (15-3978) (32-21-2,202) of KA-POW!.  Or maybe he was successfully avoided?  In
any case,  KILLER JOE was beaten by ROAD TO DAKAR in a 1 minute bout.  If you didn't
use that challenge, Joey-me-lad, use it next time while you still can!
     And speaking of Leather Rebel, our mellow and philosophical slasher has
successfully defended his title yet again.  LEATHER REBEL (60-5400) (43-27-1,282) of
METAL MELTDOWN dueled JEJUNE FLAMINGO (75-1045) (75-61-0,262) of SUPERIOR FORCES.
LEATHER REBEL viciously subdued JEJUNE FLAMINGO in a 3 minute Title fight.
     Hmm....  Once more, our overall popularity leader is Ho-Chan the Axe.  The
brawny Sand Dancer got his well-liked butt kicked but no one seemed to mind.  HO-CHAN
THE AXE (75-670) (97-133-2,184) of SAND DANCERS dueled COOLER (82-7277) (23-7-0,198)
of STYROFOAM.  HO-CHAN THE AXE was savagely defeated by COOLER in an exciting 2
minute struggle.
     And the current favorite is THE BIG 'E' (9-4474) (33-26-0,222) of CAMERON
CRAZIES, who battled DOMINO (17-3227) (45-34-2,194) of THE OFFENDERS.  THE BIG 'E'
savagely defeated DOMINO in an action packed 7 minute brutal competition.  All right.
The crowd seems to go for anyone who fights what they perceive as a defensive
warrior.  That anti-TP bias runs deep, doesn't it?
     Ah, Swingdaddy-O.  In the future try not to lose to anyone with "bunny" in their
arena name.  At least, if you want to win over the stuffed-animals-on-the-pillow
crowd.  Why those folks come to the fights I cannot imagine; to look at each other's
outfits, I suppose.  The price of admission ought to be raised to get rid of the
gigglers.  In any case, SWINGDADDY-O (42-3921) (18-14-0,45) of COLOR ME SUAVE battled
FLUFFY WONDER BUNNY (82-1953) (15-8-0,90) of 2 ALL BEEF BUNNIES II.  SWINGDADDY-O was
handily defeated by FLUFFY WONDER BUNNY in a 1 minute competition.
     And I'm not really sure what was going on here...JAMES FLETCHER (11-3810) (34-
37-0,51) of WAY TOO MUCH BEER dueled H.P. LOVECRAFTED (12-5182) (18-10-0,35) of WISH
YOU WERE BEER.  JAMES FLETCHER vanquished H.P. LOVECRAFTED in a 1 minute mismatched
bout.  H.P.L. now stands in the foundation spot of our rankings, but I'm sure he'll
fight his way up the ranks.  And you know that the spectators (at least the non-
stuffed-animal contingent) hoisted a cold one to honor both warriors.
     Well, that's about it except for the parting advice.  Ah, how about some actual
wisdom this time?  It's something I've learned the hard way in the course of a rather
rocky love life:  Remember that those who love you cannot read your mind.  Don't ever
pull that "If you really loved me you would be able to sense why I am upset" crap.
If you want your significant other to know something about you, tell them, don't wait
for them to learn telepathy.  Of course I'm talking mostly to men here so you already
understand this.  If only I had given this advice to my various lady friends at the
beginning of our acquaintance!

                                                                         Galen

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

     Once again I apologize for not being able to respond to you last cycle.
     However, here are my replies to the nice folks who spoke to me:

     Poppa Balrog -- However, they WILL wake you up. -- Galen

     Mr. Gore -- Thank you!  Good to hear from you! -- Galen

     Sultan -- Hi back...it wasn't so much introductory as remindatory, I guess. --
     Galen

Galen -- Sorry we didn't submit personals last turn.  The guys wanted to talk but I
was on a business trip to a strange and wonderful place called Nyu Orleens and didn't
get the chance to pass along their messages.  I'll try to do better.  As for the rest
of you zombies, what the heck is wrong with you!  We gave the only 2 challenges turn

before last?  And there you are, trudging along without saying a word?  There's a lot
of fun to be had in this game and I, for one, plan to get into all of it that I can!
-- Darkfist (The Iron Legion, et al)

     Darkfist -- Well said!  May your warriors do better than a 1-2 round next cycle.
     -- Galen

Amax -- Well crap.  If that's the kind of abuse I have to suffer through for a measly
skill every 5 fights then I quit! -- Helmut Darksword

     Maybe Grond will do better from now on...though he didn't fight this cycle at
     all.

Grond -- Uh, an AdMaster and a Grand Master in the same turn?  I don't have any of
those.  Wonder why I won so easily? -- Eric the Red

In You Again -- Amazingly tedious.  I hate it when I'm winning and then I don't. --
Ho-Chan the Axe

Bailey's Irish Creme -- Delishush. -- Glory
P.Sh.  Why can't you teash me anyshing?

Marco -- Polo, I presume.  You certainly went exploring. -- Similde

Cassidy Healingankh -- It was an honor to meet you on the sands, ma'am.  I hope you
will be recovered sufficiently to be my guest at dinner? -- Zin

Hoffa -- Ha! -- Charlie

Leitzith -- Yeah, you're great, all right. -- Small Cat

Juiblex -- Nice fight! -- Taxes

Crazed Goblin -- Is not death a warrior's foremost adviser?  Keep vigil always. --
Merry Demente

Glacier -- Not to worry.  I may soon tumble out of the Grand Challenger Champions and
down into the G.C. myself.  But maybe not.  Or maybe I will.  But then again.... --
Woodleg Dancer, Carnival

Woodleg -- Try to make up your mind:  Now I have the advantage in the Grand
Initiates, I cannot drop lower.  How sweet it is. -- Merry Demente, Carnival

Eric The Red -- Have you been away or have I neglected in my mass of statistics data
overlooked you. -- Carny

Ashon Chang -- Waaaooww!  That was a closie.  I was sure you were going to beat me.
Good fight. -- Khirza

Peace -- I can't tell you how much satisfaction it gives me to see a student learn so
much.  Go forth, young one, and prosper. -- Fireheart

27 May 2003
A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists

                 ANNOUNCING THE RETURN OF STORMCROWE SLAUGHTERHOUSE
     The last Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse was one of the closest and most exciting
contests ever held in Alastari.  Such an epic demands a sequel.  Therefore, Master
Darque and Jack Wolfspider are pleased to announce the return of the Stormcrowe
Slaughterhouse.
     Where?  Stormcrowe DM 45 (slow).  When?  The Slaughterhouse returns on Turn 207,
due August 19.  How can you get into the action?  Bring a team (one per entrant
please) to arena 45 and announce your intention to join the contest in the Personals.
     Rules:  This time around the rules are very simple.  Each warrior win against a
higher rated opponent (one or more points higher in the ratings) brings you 10
points, against even rated opponent 7 points, lower rated 5 points.  Wins against
NPCs or by a warrior who downchallenges are worth 0 points.  Points are doubled for
kills.  All warriors in the arena whether participating in the Slaughterhouse or not
are fair game.  Points are totaled weekly, and the contestant whose team has racked
up the most points at the end of 10 turns is declared Slaughterhouse Champion.
     Prizes:  To be announced; we're still talking with RSI about it.  Figure it will
be something pretty good.  But hey, who needs prizes when the honor of being
Slaughterhouse Champion awaits!
