In the Far West:

     "Roofs?"  Herlas leaned across the rail and peered down into the water.  "I've
heard of the Drowned Land, of course, but I hadn't realized it would be on our
course, and so close to the surface--"
     Ashon Chang grabbed the wizard's belt and hauled him back.  "You can't swim,
remember?  And we aren't stopping here to explore, even if you can.  We have more
important things to do."  He glanced across at Werre.  "As soon as the wind changes,
we should be able to get loose."
     The Adantri nodded.  "Sooner, I think.  You might not realize it, but even here
in the middle of this sea, there are tides, and the tide is rising.  We should float
off any time now."  He frowned at the plain of water around them, and the distant
line of darkness on the horizon that was probably land.  "I just hope we don't hit
any other...roof before we get away from this place."
     "So do we all," Vurand growled.  "Roofs instead of reefs!  Drowned cities!  The
sooner we get our feet back on dry land, the happier I'll be."
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     "You could never pass yourself off as Tzaltakkan," Zakar said.  "Your coloring
is wrong--we could fix that, maybe, but your face is the wrong shape, too.  And
everybody in this city who isn't Tzaltakkan by blood is a slave.  Besides, you don't
speak the language."
     Shania Silverstar scowled, already not liking where this seemed to be going.
"There must be, I don't know, traders from other lands?  Travelers--big cities always
have foreign travelers--"
     "Not in Zinaco-Lal.  No foreigner gets into this city as a free man.  Traders
and travelers don't get past the outer harbor and the Foreigners' Quarter.  We're in
the heart of the city here, woman.  And no matter when we leave the shrine, you will
be seen.  Count on it.  So you have to be--to at least look like--something that
won't raise questions.  The slave of someone of true Tzaltakkan blood.  And," he went
on before she could answer, "people will be looking for you.  You specifically--
blonde, fair-skinned.  So we have to make you unmemorable.  As much as possible,
anyway.  So we'll dye your hair black and darken your skin as much as we can, too."
He studied her, frowning.
     Shania could see that now he had forgotten whatever personal pleasure he took in
the thought of her posing as his slave and was considering the practical aspects.
She turned her own thoughts to the practical aspects.  Distasteful as the proposed
ruse was, Zakar was probably right when he said it was the only thing that would work
here and now.  She could change her appearance magically...no, better not.  That
change could be made as well with simple physical means.  Better save what magical
energy she had at the moment for a serious need.  "Soot will do for my hair if you
can't find anything better," she said briskly.  "Red ochre, maybe, for my skin?  And
tea or something like it, to take the white out of this shift."
     He nodded.  "I've got a contact who can get what we'll need."  He smiled without
humor.  "In a brothel."  He moved to the exit from the shrine.  "It shouldn't take me
long to get the stuff.  Stay here and stay out of sight until I get back."
     He was gone before she could utter any of the remarks that sprang to mind, such
as that she was smart enough not to go out and be recognized, and wasn't his servant,
and....
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     It was the tide that finally got their ship off the roof.  Imperceptible so far
from shore, the waters rose.  The only sign of it was the slow drag and the final
lift that freed the vessel.  Though it was late in the day, Werre sent the ship
shoreward--according to their charts, at least--as quickly as possible.  He put
Jammies and Vurand in the bow to watch for other obstacles so long as there was light
enough to see them.  But apparently the tower that had caught them was the tallest
building left in the drowned city.  By sunset, there were no more roofs to be
glimpsed in the water.
     "Some day," Herlas muttered, "I will come back here.  There are spells that
would permit exploration of that which is sunken, if it does not lie to deep.  To be
the first man in millennia to look upon the towers of vanished Melantea...."
     "There are probably lots of western wizards who've dived on these ruins," Ashon
Chang countered.  "Why not?  It's right in their back yard."
     "Never!" the Fratsfan responded immediately.  "The gods could not do that to
me--"
     Vurand's scornful laughter cut across his words.  "Why should the gods care if
you're the first or the ninety-first?"  The Orc squinted at the shore, red hills and
black shadows in the sunset light.  As far east along it as he could see, at the
limit of the light was an area where the shapes of light and shadow were straight-
edged, square-cornered.  "Will we try to reach that city tonight?"
     "No.  Too dangerous to go sailing around here in the dark," Werre answered.
"Rocks, ruins, or reefs, we don't want to hit anything else."

Not Talahya:

     Carris Fallstar glanced around the interior quickly.  The light was red and
seemed dim, though it was hot.  Five free-standing hearths burned aromatic wood, or
maybe it would be better to say that aromatic woods smoldered on the hearths.  There
was more smoke than flame and light coming from them.  What little he could make out
seemed slightly blurred--three large lizard men and some anonymous pieces of
furniture.  It smelled strange, spicy, musty, cloying without being sweet, an acrid
undernote.  Reptilian, he supposed.  "I suppose those three are the leaders, chiefs
or captains or whatever--"
     "But they aren't reptiles," Moonjumper murmured, standing close behind him.  Not
that she would have been overheard, as Thristle was making a long statement in his
own language.  "At least, not what we'd call reptiles--they're warm-blooded."
     "Then why do they keep it so blasted hot?" Scarlatti growled in his other ear.
     "Must be what they're used to from their own world," Rogan suggested.  "And...
there are more than three of them and Thristle here.  I can sense several more at the
back of this space."
     "Can't see 'em," Carris said after a moment.  "The light's too dim, and all this
smoke...."  He sneezed.  "Not that I'm doubting you."  Before he could say more,
Thristle's introduction came to an end.
     One of the three lizard men they could see made a gesture.  Thristle stepped
aside, allowing the man to face the gladiators without obstruction.  "The young one
tells me that you are warriors in your own land," he said.  His voice was deep, his
words heavily accented, but clear enough.  "That you wish to return to your own
land."
     The tone of the last sentence made it a question.  "This is true," Carris said.
"It seems that our world is in some ways much like this one, but in others much
different.  And the biggest difference is that this is not...home."
     A sort of whistling sigh ran around the room, every lizard man sharing in it.
     "We understand this distinction," the leader said.  "We also feel it.  If you
will help us to regain our Home, our Great Triliske, which is primarily a matter of
fighting, then we will call upon the priests and power-workers of Great Triliske to
help you to your Home."
     "Seems like a fair deal," Scarlatti muttered quietly.
     "There is more to it than shows," Fizban whispered back.  "Else they would need
no help."
     Carris Fallstar nodded very slightly.  "I see that your men are all warriors,
and Thristle has told us that you are trained to it," he said, "and I wonder what
difference a few more could make."
     The lizard man's head dipped in acknowledgment.  "It is true that we are
fearsome in battle.  But we cannot fight until we have reached the battlefield, and
the way to it lies through a realm of such cold that we would be nearly helpless.  We
know this because we have made the attempt, and nearly half our number died in it.
We need those who can withstand the cold long enough to open the door for us."
     "Presumably after fighting our way TO the door," Carris murmured.  "And in
return for this, you will ask your wizards to open OUR door."
     "That is the bargain we offer you," the big lizard agreed.  "Of course, our
'wizards' cannot serve you until we have fought our way through to Great Triliske,
and your aid in that fighting may also be important, but..." the man spread his hands
in a curiously human gesture, "that is the best we can do--for you AND for
ourselves."
     "It's difficult to be sure with an unfamiliar life form," Rogan said after the
silence had stretched into a full minute, "but I think, if this man is holding
anything back, it is not a critical fact or..." the blind Aruaki hesitated and then
shrugged, "not something of critical importance.  I think he is truly offering the
best deal he can."
     There was no need to consult his companions formally.  Carris could feel that
the humans were in agreement.  Probably it was an aspect of their short lives that
they made up their minds so quickly.  The elf shrugged in his turn.  "We'll take your
deal," he said.  "When do we start?"

The Isle of the Eye, truly Talahya:

     "The Arcanum with respect to the Isle has stabilized for the moment," the wizard
Tanrith reported.  "But I don't know--"
     "I am not interested in what you don't know," Sheila Greywand snapped.  "Tell me
what you do know.  Where are the gladiators who were caught by wandering Gates during
the first flux?  Or don't you know that?"
     "I'm not certain, but indications are that they ended up somewhere in the
Thallian realm.  It is, after all, one of the other universes most closely tied to
ours."
     Sheila's brows snapped together in a truly formidable frown, one that emphasized
the orcish part of her heritage.  "It's HIM, isn't it?  That damned Dwarf is doing
this to me, and I won't stand for it!  I will take him DOWN."
     "Er...shouldn't we see about getting the displaced gladiators back, first?"
     "Nonsense.  A mere half dozen?  They're easily replaced," she snarled.
"Besides, I need to make an example.  After they way gladiators failed to retrieve
the Eyes--"
     "That was not their fault," the old wizard argued.  "Nothing lasts forever--that
is a fundamental law of the multiverse.  The Eyes have reached the end of their
span."
     Sheila fixed him with a hard stare that had a glint of...almost madness.  "I
could have extended them, IF they had been brought to me in time.  Get me the
coordinates for all the Gates that link Ghea with Thallia.  Do it NOW, old man."

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     This place is too big.  Everywhere I look, there are warriors and fights and 
managers.  Spread out, move into Home Guard and the regionals.  It's no wonder 
Galen's wierd, he's suffocating.  (Especially from that "over-crowded locker room" 
smell.)  By the way, if you don't know already, Galen is visiting family for the 
holiday.  He should return in even wierder mode, that being the general effect of 
family and holidays when combined.  Something for you all to look forward to.
     One hundred four fights?  No way I'm gonna talk about all them.  The challenge 
matches, maybe--three tv and twenty-seven radio.  Other interesting or noteworthy 
fights, like the deaths, and the longest fight (eleven minutes, unless I slept 
through a longer one, which is possible).
     Dark Pantheon was avoided by those notorious atheists, Legalese.  I'm not sure, 
these notes are a mess, but I think Hoffa of Stories got the most challenges.  Gods 
know why.
     Hmm, let's see what else might be worth noting.  Gods, you have SIXTY lungers 
here!  Shocking, totally shocking.  Over twice as many as the next-most-common, walls 
of steel.

minute mismatched Challenge competition.  The first of two deaths.  Why was the crowd 
pleased?  Who can know the mind of a crowd?

45-0,240) of FRUIT PUPPETS.  Down 50.  RICO was defeated by GUAVA NICE DAY in an

     And our three TV challenges (with congratulations to those who won the right to 
use them):
     COMFORTABLY NUMB (96-855) (22-8-5,147) of FLOYD'S PINK BRO' TV challenged PIVOT

(52-30-1,249) of METAL MELTDOWN.  Down 40.  MARCO bested LEATHER REBEL in a 2 minute 
Challenge Title fight.  Besides being Captain of the Guard or whatever you call it 
here, ah, Tower Guardian, right, besides being Tower Guardian, Marco is the top 
lunger out of sixty.  That takes some doing!  And congratulations to him for the 
whole package.

     And then a few fights which were memorable one way or another, or managed to 
tickle my funnybone.
     THE EXPLOITER (22-1226) (48-33-1,223) of THE REPUBLICANS fought SIR CUITOUS (10-
4514) (39-25-0,201) of SIR AGLIO.  THE EXPLOITER was luckily beaten by SIR CUITOUS in 
an exciting 3 minute struggle.  This falls under the heading of "tickled my 
funnybone."  It's the names and the way they play against each other.
     LINDA LOVELACE (43-3149) (39-17-1,251) of BOOGIE NIGHTS fought F-ARUBA (51-4601) 
(48-36-1,198) of PLACES TO GO.  LINDA LOVELACE defeated F-ARUBA in a 2 minute match.  
This one gets noted because Linda Lovelace is the top parry-lunger out of fifteen.
     B HURLEY (9-4350) (46-41-3,226) of CAMERON CRAZIES fought SMALL CAT (13-4200) 
(44-65-1,192) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  B HURLEY demolished SMALL CAT in an action packed 1 
minute gory one-sided conflict. B Hurley is the steeliest wall of steel out of 
twenty-eight, a tough trick.
     PRORIARITY (21-4159) (44-31-3,215) of SCRAGITARIOUS fought SIR VIVOR (10-4065) 
(71-37-0,196) of SIR AGLIO.  PRORIARITY was savagely defeated by SIR VIVOR in an 
exciting 6 minute gruesome fight.  Proriarity is the most popular warrior in Talahya 
today, which means he must have given up that fight very reluctantly.  Unless, of 
course, he's getting the "scummed warrior sympathy" vote.  Either way, there it is.
     EARTHQUAKE (75-1663) (82-53-2,257) of FORCE OF NATURE fought MISTY (1-6840) (37-
25-0,210) of HAWKS.  EARTHQUAKE devastated MISTY in an action packed 1 minute 
mismatched match.  Earthquake is the top striker out of twenty.
     ROAD TO DAKAR (15-3978) (41-25-2,198) of KA-POW! fought SPOTTED PONY (4-3975) 
(40-36-0,184) of TRIBAL COUNCIL.  ROAD TO DAKAR demolished SPOTTED PONY in an 
exciting 2 minute mismatched match.  This one tickled me.  Okay, so I've got a wierd 
sense of humor, so sue me.  But I can just see that Pony staggering down the 
seemingly endless Road....
     TICKLE ME HOFFA (69-6127) (33-29-1,200) of DARK CIRCLE TOYS fought BEAUTIFUL 
THING (51-3874) (40-39-1,162) of PANSY DIVISION.  TICKLE ME HOFFA was handily 
defeated by BEAUTIFUL THING in a 1 minute match.  Obvious ticklement here, but maybe 
I'd better not go into details.
     BARETTA (46-1854) (33-33-0,186) of RIVER WARDENS fought YOUCANKEEPTHEDUCK (18-
7355) (33-17-0,156) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  BARETTA demolished YOUCANKEEPTHEDUCK in a 
crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided conflict.  Baretta is top ripper out of three.
     JOHN HOLMES (69-7255) (51-31-1,187) of GIFTED fought COUCH POTATO (3-2985) (61-
41-1,192) of FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT.  JOHN HOLMES overpowered COUCH POTATO in a popular 1 
minute one-sided struggle.  Wrestled him down off the couch and PINNED him to the 
floor.
     HO-CHAN THE AXE (75-670) (101-142-2,200) of SAND DANCERS fought HATSHEPSUT (51-
4157) (53-64-1,187) of CARTOUCHE.  HO-CHAN THE AXE viciously subdued HATSHEPSUT in an 
exciting 4 minute brutal duel.  As usual, our Well Dressed Overall Popularity Leader.
     KRYTEN (1-6782) (45-31-1,171) of HAWKS fought MEADOW VOLE (35-2944) (43-43-
2,175) of WILD KINGDOM.  KRYTEN was savagely defeated by MEADOW VOLE in an exciting 
11 minute gruesome contest.  The longest fight.
     CHARLIE (61-2873) (49-41-0,158) of FAVORITE GUYS fought VICTORY (75-757) (14-8-
1,150) of SUPERIOR FORCES.  CHARLIE overpowered VICTORY in a 1 minute uneven brawl.  
How can a warrior named "Victory" lose?
     H.P. LOVECRAFTED (12-5182) (24-17-0,128) of WISH YOU WERE BEER fought SUDSY 
DEODORANT (42-3930) (21-22-3,100) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  H.P. LOVECRAFTED overpowered 
SUDSY DEODORANT in a 1 minute one-sided contest.  Myself, I'd've bet on the Sudsy 
Deodorant to be overpowering, but what do I know?
     WIMPY WIND (28-3517) (21-23-1,138) of THE PENTARCHY fought GRAY WIND (6-5201) 
(18-17-1,115) of DARK PANTHEON.  WIMPY WIND slimly won victory over GRAY WIND in a 2 
minute bloody match.  We should've made 'em fight in a wind tunnel.
     FLUFFY WONDER BUNNY (82-1953) (20-15-0,99) of 2 ALL BEEF BUNNIES II fought DARK 
GERBIL (82-6762) (13-6-2,79) of CROSS BREED.  FLUFFY WONDER BUNNY was devastated by 
DARK GERBIL in a 1 minute one-sided melee.  Sounds like one of those sicko comics, 
doesn't it?
     WOUNDHEALER (65-4496) (5-4-0,19) of BOOK OF SWORDS fought KING BEAR (35-3629) 
(19-4-1,86) of THE BEARS.  WOUNDHEALER devastated KING BEAR in a crowd pleasing 1 
minute one-sided bout.  Looks like Woundhealer may not live up to his name.
     THE CURE (38-4085) (20-11-0,47) of EAGLES CLAW fought DUCK RUBBER (18-7196) (27-
39-0,65) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  THE CURE slaughtered DUCK RUBBER in a 1 minute gruesome 
mismatched match.  The second death, and a sure cure for anything.  And no, I'm not 
doing dried flower wreaths.  They make me sneeze.
     IN THE PIG! (96-864) (16-11-5,76) of HOWIE'S DARK PAST fought LAME AIM (22-5656) 
(15-8-1,82) of GLADIATION FOLLY.  IN THE PIG! was devastated by LAME AIM in a 1 
minute mismatched match.  In the Pig is our least popular warrior this week, probably 
due to some unmerited personal bias on the part of our voting public.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

F-Aruba -- Sorry for scumming you.  I'm just a take-my-sweet-time kinda warrior, I
like to fight but I like plenty of time to plan out my strategy. -- Khirza

All, especially Personal Bejeezus -- My warrior Hotta Watta, who fought against
Personal Bejeezus last turn, wasn't supposed to have even been here.  I intended to
retire him, but somehow, my instructions for HW's last turn in Kolact ended up here
in Talahya.  My apologies to Personal Bejeezus and anyone who tried to challenge
Hotta Watta this turn. -- The Narrator, mgr. Townsvillains and Powerpuff Girls

Krarsht -- You sound like somebody who'd be a follower of Mytori, and you fight like
one, too.  Shierah save us all.  Go away. -- Similde

Leitzith -- All time great what? -- Small Cat
P.S.  Cool id number.

Domino -- Once we passed ten minutes, I knew you were going to win. -- Ho-Chan the
Axe
P.S.  Can we get a turtle for that thirteen minute fight, do you think?

Pivot -- You kept turning this way and that (very smoothly, too) so that I was
confused.  Um, more confused than usual, I mean.  Good fight. -- Zin

Pistol -- Too good for whom?  (curled lip of scorn)  I will shoot you down again, if
you like. -- Glory

Lemon Drop -- Gods, don't tell me there's a DRINK by that name!  How awful.
Blasphemy or something. -- Charlie

Gazelle -- No, it's his ego that's big.  The rest is pathetic. -- Glory

Ankelbiter -- Good fight.  Let me get some more skills and I will try to make a fight
of it. -- C. Canary

Slap Happy -- Thanks for all those lovely skills.  I could make a career out of
fighting you. -- Clinton

Fluffy Wonder Bunny -- Ha ha!  I stole your weapon!  Too bad you don't teach well. --

8 December 2003
Greetings!  I would like to invite everyone to Jhans (DM 36) for the first annual kLk
St. Valentine's Day Massacre (kill contest).  We will start the contest off with the
ceremonial burning of the Andorian flag on turn 450.  (Six turns away.  Roughly mid-
February.)  The contest will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461, 3 separate victors will
be announced.  Team with the most kills, warrior with the most kills, and alliance
with the most kills.  Prizes will be awarded to the manager of the team with the most
kills and to the manager of the warrior with the most kills.  The prizes will
probably be team roll-ups.  The number of roll-ups has yet to be determined.  The
contest is sponsored by Jhans' newest, (but by the time the contest starts) largest
alliance, the kLk (pronounced "klick"). -- Polarius, mgr. of Blitzkrieg DM 36
