Rithakar:

     Onuphre had disarmed the man and was now holding him in an iron grip to prevent
him bleeding to death from the stump.  Seeing that he had his companions' attention
again, the Shew said, "I thought we might want to ask this fellow some questions."
     "What an excellent idea!" Tamea Soulkeeper purred.  She moved closer to the
Shew's prisoner and examined him curiously.  "He appears to be of a race unknown in
Alastari," she murmured, then glanced at the blood leaking from the stump of the
man's arm.  It was an unusual shade of red, almost coppery.  "Of an unknown species
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.

The Isle of the Eye:

     They didn't get to see Sheila Greywand, which was a surprise.  Some sort of
secretary told them that she was "very busy."  They should take their trophy, which
might or might not be the Eye of the South, to the Stronghold Academy and turn it
over to Senior Wizard Tanrith.  Then he shut the door in their faces.
     "You would think," Mr. Testosterone muttered angrily, "that after sending us--
personally sending us, at that--on a special mission of 'surpassing importance',
she'd want to at least hear our report in person and ask us some questions."
     "One might think that," Bellerophon agreed.  "I suppose she might be occupied
with more pressing matters," he went on slowly, staring at the shut door.
     "We were given to understand that there WERE no more pressing matters than
finding out what happened to the Eyes," Tamea Soulkeeper growled.  "But not only are
we turned away at her door, we could barely get onto the Isle at all!"
     "That might be one of the more pressing matters," Skirnir suggested.
     "Ha!  I know when I've been insulted."  Tamea glared at the door.  "It would
serve her right if we didn't take the Eye to the Academy."
     "No, WE should do things properly, even if SHE is too busy," E.A. Polecat cut
in.  "Besides, what would we do with the thing?"  He looked at the towel-wrapped
bundle uneasily.
     "And even if we, you know, get away with it now," Debby Tonte predicted, "SHE
will notice later on, and then we'll be in trouble.  SHE always notices sooner or
later."
     "What's the point in arguing?" Onuphre asked.  "We're going to take it to the
Stronghold Academy, to this Senior Wizard, so let's just do it.  I want to go back to
my guildhouse, take a hot bath, get a good meal, and a night's sleep in a real bed
for a change."  He glanced sideways at Debby.  "Not that the Rithakar Hilton wasn't
okay, but I want my own bed."
     "I agree," Natasha Knight said from the back of the group.  "Let's just get rid
of the thing and be done with all this.  Where is the Stronghold Academy from here?"
She moved to the outer door and peered into the fog uncertainly.
     Debby tugged her beach jacket more securely around her well-tanned figure and
stepped out into the fog.  "It's right down there."  She gestured at nothing visible
to the others.
     The gladiators glanced at each other.  Bellerophon shrugged.  "She always lands
on her feet," he murmured.  "She probably does know where the Academy is, and we want
to get rid of this.  Let's go."
     They went.
     Ten minutes brisk walk brought them to a stout brick wall topped with iron
spikes.  The porter at the heavy gate, a pale, weedy specimen who looked more like a
student of magic than any kind of guard, let them in without argument, and directed
them to Tanrith's workroom.
     Tanrith looked old, as befitted a senior wizard.  He also looked tired, but that
was not their problem.  He took the towel-wrapped stone from them, set it on a bare
table, and unwrapped it.  The stone was a sphere a little bigger than a man's head,
chalky white, smooth but dull of surface, and faint shadows cast by nothing visible
moved just under its skin.
     The wizard sighed.  "This was, indeed, one of the Eyes," he said.  "It's beyond
recovery now, poor thing.  Best to put it out of its misery...."
     "You make it sound like something alive," E.A. Polecat muttered.
     "It is.  Or it was.  The records state plainly that when Lady Greywand created
the Eyes, each was built around the soul, spirit, or whatever you want to call it, of
a living person.  I'm surprised they lasted as long as they did."
     "Why?"  Tamea Soulkeeper leaned forward intently.  "Why should they not survive
for even longer when preserved by spells?"
     "Nothing but the vast mind of a Great Dragon lasts without decay for more than a
few hundred years in nature.  Spells may extend that period to as much as a thousand
years, but beyond that point...no."  The old man sighed.  "Oh, to be sure, you can
keep it GOING with spells, but it changes.  Memory frays away, personality twists
into new channels, and the resilience of the healthy mind is lost.  The mind may
retain function, indeed, it may be quite powerful, but it isn't sane by any measure."
     Nobody said anything.  Bellerophon didn't look at the other gladiators, but in
his mind was the awareness that Sheila Greywand was considerably more than a thousand
years old.  Was this man saying SHE was insane?  Impossible...or was it?
     "That's two of the Eyes recovered," Tanrith went on.  "The East and the South.
Good work."
     "And luck," Bellerophon said.  "Luck, and help when we needed it."
     "If the Eyes are useless now," Tamea asked, "what happens to the Arcanum and
magic?"
     "Nobody knows for sure," the old wizard said.  "Disruption of normal life, at
the least.  Beyond that, we must wait and see."

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 Captain of the Guard

     Well isn't this odd, Primus rules Home Guard.  My how things have changed since
the regional tourneys, when the Home Guard contingent ruled all.  Many thanks to
Caffeine Achiever for choosing me as the fortunate one who got to fight for the
throne.  I don't know who I'll fight this turn, as Crip always fights blind in fast
arenas.  I know I've got a double challenge in against Caffeine Achiever, but as he
got knocked out of the Challenger Champions, that challenge will be null and void.  I
could tell you who I'm challenging and avoiding next turn, but alas, that would take
away some of the surprise.

     For those of you familiar with Tales of the Crip, you will remember that Crip
has been known to take out Moose with subcompact vehicles.  Well, a decade after the
that incident, we know now that this is like a game of Rock-Scissors-Paper.  Crip in
Vehicle destroys large mammal on road.  Crip (admittedly another large mammal) on
road destroys F-150 truck not occupied by Crip.  The only thing left to determine, is
who would win in a showdown between an F-150 and a Moose.  My money's on the Moose.
(If this sounds like complete Gibberish to you, seek out Crip at the Philly Phacer,
and he'll explain the story).

     Finally, why am I on the throne.  I've heard there are entries into the Adepts
tourney that have higher skill totals than I do.  Ah, such is life in Home Guard.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Debby dropped by today, guess she was on her way to somewhere the sun is 
shining.  Her skin's going to dry up and turn to leather by the time she's forty, but 
what the heck, if she's having fun now, who am I to complain?  Besides, she looks 
great in a bikini.  It's hot today, which is no surprise.  But maybe that's why our 
longest fight--actually, three tied for it--was five minutes.  Nobody could stand to 
go longer.  Forty-three fights all told, gods, think what it would've been like if 
EVERYBODY had gone longer!  We'd've been out there for days, maybe until the 
Andorians came along to bump us out of the arena at the end of the week.  You know, I 
can see the savings in having only one arena here in Talahya and using it for 
Talahya, Home Guard, Primus, Free Blades, Anodrak, and Crysalis, but any little in 
the way of time over-runs can really make problems.  Talahya's the worst, of course, 
what with trying to cram so MANY fights into one day.  They never do it, and always 
Primus and Crysalis, and sometimes Free Blades end up having to find somewhere else 
to hold their fights.  First choice is Lirin Kiv, 'cause it's closest, and it isn't 
like it gets USED much.  They never run over!  But when Crysalis turns out to fight, 
ON the same day as Talahya, mind you, Crysalis grabs off Lirin Kiv, and half the time 
Primus ends up down in Darkholm.  I suppose there isn't anything WRONG with Darkholm, 
exactly, but it's a tough crowd.  They tend to throw rotten fish if they don't like 
the way the fights are going, and that annoys the maintenance crew.  Combing all 
those fishbones out of the sand is the pits.  And since some of the maintenance crew 
doubles as standbys, well, you can imagine how gnarly they are!  I don't suppose any 
but the Primus warriors could handle that crew.
     But I digress.  Where was I?  No fights longer than five minutes, check.
     Biggest point gain (I think, but Debby's notes are, hmm, is that suntan oil on 
'em?  Whatever.  Biggest point gain, or as she puts it, Man Voted Prettiest, was Fili 
Liu with thirty-three points.  Carny or Drake, is that the world record?  Somehow I 
don't think so.
     Royal Flush was most avoided, by The Stormguards, who probably know what they're 
doing.
     Sorrow of Sweordmasters got the most challenges, the Captain of the Guard didn't 
get one.  Don't we have anybody here with ambition?
     Forty-three fights, of which twenty were challenge matches.  Only one was a TV 
challenge, and there's a story in THAT fight.

     The fights--
     KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (38-52-1,78) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES fought ANGAR (10-4933) 
(15-13-1,62) of WAR HAWKS.  KOOKABURRA handily defeated ANGAR in an action packed 1 
minute brutal mismatched bout.  Let that be a lesson to you, Angar, never challenge 
cookies that hang out in Old Gum Trees.  They can present a sticky problem.
     LUNA TYCK (33-5761) (27-26-1,79) of DRAKE'S PETTING ZOO fought THE FRATSFAN CHEF 
(30-4385) (14-4-0,46) of ANDORIAN UNIVERSITY.  LUNA TYCK was demolished by THE 
FRATSFAN CHEF in a popular 2 minute gory uneven fight.  Remind me NOT to eat this 
Chef's lentil soup!  The possibilities in this give me a sick feeling in my middle.
     PERFECT TEN (47-4218) (20-16-1,54) of ROYAL FLUSH fought NO CHASER (33-6490) 
(24-17-0,72) of JOYS OF BOOZE.  PERFECT TEN was savagely defeated by NO CHASER in a 2 
minute gory match.  Is this perfection?  Is this sane?  Gods, can I keep this up for 
the whole day's fights?  We'll see.  PT, try not to accept strong drink from your 
opponents before the fight, not even the night before the fight!
     MOD COD (55-2638) (37-66-1,74) of RHYME TYME fought KYLIE (18-6057) (18-16-1,71) 
of UNTOUCHABLES.  MOD COD was overcome by KYLIE in a crowd pleasing 1 minute melee.  
If I go into the Bash and Glug tonight and they offer me codfish stew, I'm going to 
be deeply suspicious.  Of course, I'm always deeply suspicious of their food, but 
still.
     NASTY NITTERS (63-2383) (15-19-2,68) of TOMATO ENFORCER fought KATANA (62-3769) 
(9-8-0,70) of SAMURAI KIDS II.  NASTY NITTERS viciously subdued KATANA in a crowd 
pleasing 4 minute brutal fight.  Ah, the Tomato Twins back to back, win one, lose 
one.  I could really stand to know how one enforces a tomato.  Not a joke, I'm 
curious.
     AVARICIOUS AVON (63-2388) (17-14-0,34) of TOMATO ENFORCER fought SPRING SHOE 
(30-4178) (17-23-2,56) of CARNIVAL.  AVARICIOUS AVON was subdued by SPRING SHOE in an 
action packed 1 minute conflict.  I've got an idea that springs in the shoes may be 
sharp practice.  You think?  Not exactly illegal, but sneaky.  Underhanded, or would 
that be underfooted?
     OURS ROUGE (3-6049) (15-19-1,43) of THE REDBAERS fought LETHE (9-4782) (22-14-
2,65) of BLUE MOON.  OURS ROUGE was vanquished by LETHE in a 1 minute mismatched 
duel.  Was that a bearskin rug I saw Lethe walking out with?  Or a cuddly bear that 
wanted a soothing hand on its brow?
     FILI LIU (2-4968) (16-15-0,30) of RESURRECTION fought MEN IN BLACK (49-3157) 
(39-88-1,80) of RPG'S.  FILI LIU beat MEN IN BLACK in an exciting 2 minute fight.  
Ah, yes, this is the win that netted the biggest point gain.  Now there's an odd 
phrase.  Is a point gain like a fish, that you have to catch it with a net?
     ROGAN (97-980) (5-9-4,47) of BLIND LUCK fought SKI MASK (58-5869) (24-45-0,42) 
of CIRQUE DU MASQUES.  ROGAN was handily defeated by SKI MASK in an action packed 1 
minute mismatched match.  Rogan, how could you let this boastful bird defeat you?  
Come back at him with a challenge and roast him in orange sauce!
     NEVERMORE (1-5260) (16-17-2,93) of LAB EXPERIMENTS fought KHARN (51-2997) (32-
33-4,98) of COLD STEEL.  NEVERMORE was overpowered by KHARN in a popular 1 minute 
uneven bout.  I knew a man once who did lab experiments.  They mostly involved making 
his wine stronger, or maybe covering up the vinegar taste.  Awful stuff.  He favored 
really cheap wine.  His liver revolted and left him to go live with a teetotaler.
     JACK SPRAT (47-2954) (43-49-4,137) of ROYAL FLUSH fought SPAZZ (33-6207) (30-23-
0,123) of SNOTZI'S II.  JACK SPRAT was handily defeated by SPAZZ in a 1 minute uneven 
match.  Looks to me like you've got some kind of basic problem, Jack.  Maybe you 
should try a change in diet.
     X THE BOLD (10-16) (51-47-1,142) of WAR HAWKS fought HAPPY JACK (19-4086) (32-
21-2,98) of THE MOTHERSHIP.  X THE BOLD was viciously subdued by HAPPY JACK in an 
exciting 3 minute brutal fight.  Some Jacks do well, some don't.  There seems to be 
no rule on this.  Odd.  It would be a lot easier on the bookies if there was, or 
possible were, a rule.  But then again, what do I care about making things easy for 
the bookies?  Let 'em sweat.
     BURGER KING (47-4152) (27-19-2,105) of ROYAL FLUSH fought COM DOT (65-6217) (32-
19-0,145) of TOO GOOD FOR ME.  BURGER KING was demolished by COM DOT in an exciting 1 
minute mismatched match.  From which you can tell that Com Dot was hungry.  I heard 
him asking the stewards after the fight if he could get a side order of fries.
     VAL BEMERIKI (51-5018) (32-22-3,110) of GENOCIDE fought ROWDY YOBBO (20-3429) 
(19-17-1,91) of SPARF!  VAL BEMERIKI vanquished ROWDY YOBBO in a 1 minute mismatched 
fight.  Good work, Val.  'Cide this yob's gens.  He makes too much noise in the 
barracks after curfew.
     HALLIE O'DENE (58-6018) (36-52-0,127) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES fought FAST-FINGERS 
FRED (101-7) (0-0-0,110) of Local Louts.  HALLIE O'DENE overpowered FAST-FINGERS FRED 
in an exciting 1 minute bloody uneven bout.  The excitement here came from Fred 
running around screaming while Hallie pursued him to break his fingers.  Many people 
whose pockets have been picked cheered at this.
     QRAPPY (10-4761) (27-44-1,174) of QUBIT fought BUDDERCUP (60-5967) (27-21-0,110) 
of BUMS 'R' US.  QRAPPY savagely defeated BUDDERCUP in a popular 2 minute brutal 
fight.  Savagery!  Brutality!  Have we stumbled on some deep-seated animosity here?  
Or just another day in the heat, which will make anyone savage, especially after the 
first minute crawls past.
     CRUSADER LORD (31-3946) (31-18-3,168) of THE STORMGUARDS fought TICKLES (9-3486) 
(32-50-1,140) of MY PETS.  CRUSADER LORD handily defeated TICKLES in a 1 minute one-
sided fight.  Frankly, I don't think Tickles was even trying.  She was just lying 
there giggling.  Disgraceful, I call it.
     SIR CUITOUS (10-4514) (33-19-0,171) of SIR AGLIO fought JOE KING (47-2223) (26-
41-0,104) of ROYAL FLUSH.  SIR CUITOUS overpowered JOE KING in a 1 minute uneven 
fight.  But he did it straightforwardly!  No quibbling, no beating around the bush, 
just came right out and said, "Er, hmm, ah, did you know your shoe is untied?"  You 
can't be more direct than that, can you?
     SPAZ GHOST (47-4161) (36-16-1,175) of DRAKE'S COMICS fought TANNIN (65-4409) 
(36-24-2,156) of CRIMSON PEGASI.  SPAZ GHOST handily defeated TANNIN in an action 
packed 5 minute brutal mismatched bout.  You know, I can barely see the tablet I'm 
writing this on.  Maybe that's a sign I should move faster and get it over with.  I 
suppose it's no wonder Tannin lost to a Ghost.  After all, how do you hit a ghost?
     LUDO (18-708) (49-56-2,190) of THUNDR + LITENING fought KAP N' BELLE (25-4312) 
(25-35-1,184) of CARNIVAL.  LUDO beat KAP N' BELLE in an action packed 3 minute gory 
duel.  These Delarquans!  Tough and mean, I knew it all along.  Good work, Ludo, but 
what are you going to do with the bell?  If you wear it as an earring, the jingling 
will drive you nuts.
     STELLA BLUE (53-6167) (23-12-1,192) of PUERCO'S PINATA fought BLACK RHINO (71-
1834) (34-19-1,198) of EDGE OF EXTINCTION.  STELLA BLUE overpowered BLACK RHINO in an 
action packed 1 minute one-sided bout.  Thus pushing the Rhino that much closer to 
extinction.
     50 SUCKS (60-4129) (46-29-0,212) of JOKA MASHER! fought CAFFIENE ACHIEVER (15-
2429) (34-34-4,203) of DRAKE'S BAR-B-Q.  50 SUCKS narrowly defeated CAFFIENE ACHIEVER 
in an action packed 3 minute fight.  CA, sometimes caffiene is not enough.  Sometimes 
you need sugar and cream, too.

     And the challenge matches--
     GOSSAMER (98-407) (8-7-4,68) of PERFECTION QUEST challenged STARBUCK (6-5387) 
(20-14-0,43) of SCIENCE FICTION.  Down 25.  GOSSAMER was vanquished by STARBUCK in a 
popular 1 minute mismatched Challenge fray.  I don't have much to do with gossamer, 
much less perfection, but I know coffee.  And Starbuck's can go through anything 
delicate in no time at all.  Strong!  Okay, okay, I know there's some other allusion 
here, but I don't have the details, and I know coffee, and I have to say something... 
it's in my contract!
     NED THE JANITOR (66-2973) (17-19-0,82) of ANDORIAN UNIVERSITY challenged BABOO 
(74-2711) (39-86-0,83) of WILD AMINALS.  Up 1.  NED THE JANITOR vanquished BABOO in a 
3 minute gruesome one-sided Challenge match.  Gruesome doesn't even begin to cover 
it!  Amazing what you can do with a broom, isn't it?  I knew there was some reason 
for avoiding brooms and mops.  Dangerous implements.
     OSCAR (50-3153) (23-5-0,69) of OPEN SESAME challenged SULTAN (10-4516) (22-7-
0,69) of SIR AGLIO.  Straight across.  OSCAR bested SULTAN in a popular 4 minute gory 
Challenge contest.  Does this mean Oscar gets the golden key?
     CUBA (26-3917) (16-7-0,52) of HERE TO PHOENIX challenged PREACHER (7-5083) (16-
7-2,58) of THRILLZ & KILLZ.  Up 6.  CUBA beat PREACHER in a popular 3 minute bloody 
Challenge match.  That this was "popular" is probably a comment on the basic 
irrevernce to be found on the Isle.  At least, that's what I think.  Either that, or 
the fans just like to see a lot of blood.
     ROT TEN EGGS (47-3099) (27-30-0,77) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged CARRIE NATION (64-
4054) (29-61-0,81) of REFORMERS.  Up 4.  ROT TEN EGGS devastated CARRIE NATION in a 1 
minute one-sided Challenge fight.  I wait with bated breath (only a little bread and 
vanilla, nothing too stinky) to find out why this Egg (do we have a Montague Egg 
here?) was able to defeat the iron-tongued Carrie.
     MIME (2-4966) (19-10-3,100) of HARLEQUINS challenged FOREVER MAN (38-4168) (26-
36-0,100) of SANDS OF TIME.  Straight across.  MIME viciously subdued FOREVER MAN in 
a crowd pleasing 2 minute bloody Challenge bout.  As you've no doubt heard, this is 
the mime that gladiators have seen pretending to fight better than other gladiators.  
And when he stops pretending and gets down to business, look out!
     JUGGLER (2-4965) (21-9-0,94) of HARLEQUINS challenged GREASESPOT (60-5964) (21-
27-0,100) of BUMS 'R' US.  Up 6.  JUGGLER unbelievably bested GREASESPOT in a crowd 
pleasing 4 minute Challenge bout.  Actually, it isn't the victory that's 
unbelievable, it's that Juggler managed to pull it off while keeping six decorated 
eggs and a sour lemon in the air with his off hand.  That takes talent!
     APPLE JACK (47-4011) (25-15-4,92) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged SABLE (2-4950) (24-
10-2,86) of HARLEQUINS.  Down 6.  APPLE JACK was savagely defeated by SABLE in a 4 
minute Challenge conflict.  So, Jack, was this the same strategy that Carrie just 
described?  Spike your water bottle, and then get you moving sideways till you fall 
over?  Inquiring minds want to know.
     STRONGEST #3 (40-173) (42-83-1,141) of SOLARAN BERSERK challenged POPE PAUL II 
(79-1317) (22-11-0,137) of CHAPEL ROCK.  Down 4.  STRONGEST #3 viciously subdued POPE 
PAUL II in an exciting 5 minute Challenge battle.  I never watch fights like this in 
the summer.  The very IDEA of being vigorous for five minutes exhausts me.
     LOOMING BIRD (82-424) (40-53-3,130) of YOU FEEL THAT! challenged MASHER (60-
4553) (28-31-3,115) of JOKA MASHER!.  Down 15.  LOOMING BIRD was demolished by MASHER 
in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge match.  Now, this was amazing.  I wouldn't have 
though the Big Bird could have been mashed THAT flat.  The orderlies rolled him up 
like a rug.
     QUEEN AMAZONIA (12-4796) (29-34-1,111) of DARKMOON challenged BUBBLES (12-4981) 
(21-36-1,117) of POWERPUFF GIRLS.  Up 6.  QUEEN AMAZONIA was beaten by BUBBLES in a 
popular 1 minute gory Challenge melee.  This looks like some home-town quarrel.  Two 
women after the same man, perhaps?  I don't dare suggest what they might be after him 
FOR.  Nothing to his benefit, most likely.
     TALOS (31-2069) (38-16-0,123) of THE STORMGUARDS challenged DELICE THE RED (56-
3401) (36-39-1,147) of BAD APPLES.  Up 24.  TALOS defeated DELICE THE RED in a 2 
minute Challenge fight.  I told Delice that the extra butter on her muffin was a 
mistake, but did she listen?  No, of course not.  Well, she's a woman, which tells 
you right there.  And you know how it is with extra butter, it leaves you sluggish, 
almost inert, like a self-satisfied pig, than which there is no pig more annoying.  
It's all well and good to score points over Jack Sprat, but use a little moderation, 
girl!
     STEVE MCQUEEN (47-3908) (27-29-1,142) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged HOT HAZEL (98-
608) (15-19-4,161) of JUNKYARD WARS.  Up 19.  STEVE MCQUEEN unbelievably bested HOT 
HAZEL in a 3 minute Challenge fight.  What part of this, exactly, did anyone not 
believe?  After all, Hot Hazel would catch any man's eye, and Steve has moves, 
serious moves.  And maybe Hazel likes a blond.  No law against that, although there 
should be.
     WAHOO (26-3916) (23-13-1,161) of HERE TO PHOENIX challenged W.T. POOH (33-4430) 
(52-37-0,173) of SNOTZI'S II.  Up 12.  WAHOO was overcome by W.T. POOH in an action 
packed 5 minute gruesome Challenge melee.  WT, I gotta hand it to you, I would never 
have thought of jamming a honeypot over Wahoo's head.  That takes "thinking outside 
the box."  But what I want to know is, how did you happen to have a honeypot in the 
arena?
     MUSILAR DE MITTEL (53-5753) (30-14-0,170) of PUERCO'S PINATA challenged ABOUT 
YOUR CAR... (78-778) (94-131-6,171) of BAD NEWS.  Up 1.  MUSILAR DE MITTEL was 
luckily beaten by ABOUT YOUR CAR... in a 1 minute brawl.  Now, this one was 
definitely a case of luck.  Well, you must have noticed, AYC was all over the place, 
weaving right and left, barely under control, skidding on the turns, the whole nine 
yards.  We agree that AYC was bound to hit SOMETHING, but it was pure luck--I don't 
say good or bad, but definitely luck--that it was Musilar that got hit.  A Friendly 
Constable delivered a ticket when AYC lurched out of the arena after the fight.
     SORROW (1-2863) (25-21-2,185) of SWEORDMASTERS challenged ROLEX WATCH (32-3732) 
(36-27-0,195) of LUST MUPPETS.  Up 10.  SORROW vanquished ROLEX WATCH in a 1 minute 
mismatched Challenge fight.  This is, if I mistake not, and of course I haven't made 
a mistake here, the Most-Challenged Sorrow fending off the indelicate attentions of 
the rest of the arena to get a challenge off against Rolex.  Good going, Sorrow.  
Er... who did you have to bribe?
     MISS WORLD (52-2370) (29-26-1,201) of THE FURIOUS FIVE challenged DIRT WORM (82-
2315) (49-22-0,210) of VERMIN!!  Up 9.  MISS WORLD was subdued by DIRT WORM in a 4 
minute Challenge competition.  Clearly, Miss World is not yet ready to challenge the 
Beauty Queen (next up), and will have to work a little harder on her swimsuit 
presentation.  But I'm sure it will come.  Hang in there, Miss!
     WURP (10-18) (44-47-1,203) of WAR HAWKS challenged BEAUTY QUEEN (47-3352) (30-
32-3,205) of ROYAL FLUSH.  Up 2.  WURP was viciously subdued by BEAUTY QUEEN in a 
popular 2 minute Challenge contest.  I heard--mind you, this is only a rumor!--that 
Beauty took exception ot Wurp's continual burping.  Took it as an insult.  Some 
beauties, especially the queens, are very picky about little things like that.
     R'SHANN (20-577) (41-33-3,199) of OVERLORDS challenged FANNY BELT (28-1804) (37-
22-1,237) of OTTO'S MECHANICS.  Up 38.  R'SHANN demolished FANNY BELT in a popular 5 
minute one-sided Challenge melee.  Word is that R'Shann and Fanny were later 
approached by an agent from Bill's Burlesque Shows to take their act on the road to 
some of the night spots here on the Isle.  Don't do it.  The pay is awful.
     UU DOEWANAKNO (73-1414) (18-3-1,100) of DRAKE'S LODGE TV challenged EMERALD 
DRAGONFLY (60-2586) (54-58-1,149) of MAGICK.  Up 49, I think this might be the 
biggest challenge either way today.  UU DOEWANAKNO was dealt death by EMERALD 
DRAGONFLY in a 1 minute Challenge fight.  What's the good of having a TV challenge 
when it gets you killed, eh?  Tough, Uu.  Not even a skill to show for it.
     PRIMUS (21-4975) (30-10-0,220) of REAL BEER fought KAIDEN (35-3108) (68-72-
1,211) of VIOLENT FEMS.  PRIMUS narrowly defeated KAIDEN in a popular 3 minute 
gruesome Title fight.  "Narrowly" defeated.  Somebody--Primus, how about you?  
Somebody define a "narrow" victory (or defeat) for me, okay?  I've wondered about 
this.  And congratulations on your victory over that extremely violent female person, 
Kaiden.  If you knew as much as I do about her habits... well, you'd know how lucky 
you were to come out of that with your life, much less a victory.  Congratulations to 
you.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Wahoo -- Yahoo and wow-wee, Mr. Wahoo!  I'll bet that "BERSERKER FURY" was decisively
fueled.  Nice ambush.  Fare well, sailor. -- #3

Spy Reporter -- I didn't say every warrior was "rotten."  I said "under developed,
untrained, under skilled, or just plain bad."  For example, my warrior Looming Bird
will be quite good in 10 years when he finishes his training and fights in Gateway,
but right now he is not very skilled by AD standards.  No offense intended to the
fine warriors and managers here. -- Doc Steele

     They all say that--that they'll be great in ten years.  In the old days, Home
     Guard warriors would never have made such a claim, though!

Preacher -- How did you get ahead of me in the standings?  Don't you know I'm the
great -- Spring Shoe

Fratsfan Chef -- Welcome!  What's cooking?  Do you get it?  What's cooking? -- Spring
Shoe

Perfect Ten -- Don't even think about trying to pass me. -- Spring Shoe

Kap N' Belle -- What's this fool Doc Steele saying?  Untrained?  Unskilled?  I've got
27 skills. -- Spring Shoe

     On-coming truck, huh?

Spring Shoe -- How was he to know? -- Kap N' Belle

Olaf -- It was popular because not many people have ever seen a Xiss before, much
less how one fights.  Of course, now that I think about it, they still haven't. --
Luna Tyck

     It's something for them to look forward to, then.

Pope Paul II -- Whatever guise evil may adopt, whatever form it may take, whomever's
mind it shall subvert, wherever safety it may seek; I shall be there to face it and
bring it down to Justice.  It is what I do (because I have no other hobbies) and I
*am* the Obsessed Avenger!

     We're counting on you to keep us clean.

Wurp -- Rats.  Too bad I wasn't able to keep that offensive up a little longer. --
Spaz Ghost

Kookaburra -- Buy you a drink for that resurrection hangover? -- Uu Doewanakno
P.S.  I bet you never expected to be killed by someone using *that* weapon, did you.

Primus -- Well, that was rather short.  Plus I got beaten by one of Crip's warriors.
I'm probably never going to live down the shame of this one. -- Caffeine Achiever
P.S.  I never liked beer anyway.

The Muffin Man -- Well, if it can manage to lose every fight during a semester,
you'll get the record.  As I recall, the 0-14 was during a 15 turn semester, so
doesn't quite count as perfect. -- Drake
P.S.  I've often been surprised at how hard it is to find truly stand-around scum in
Home Guard.  You would think this would be the place for it, though.

     Except during the Scumathon, of course.

Olaf -- Bah, they're just not thinking cleverly enough.  Those large, immobile suits
of armor are great for barbecuing on if it's a hot day.  Plus those large shields
make great serving platters. -- Drake

     This is true.  Plus, they make great gongs.

Doc Steel -- Well, it's certainly not the same place as it was about 10 years ago
when we had things like the Beer Stein Tourney or the Home Guard Olympics.  There's
more young upstart Freshmen trying to get easy wins for one thing (witness the last
Champs TC running around the place plus we had a Home Guardian TC Freshmen a year or
two ago; Mymid El Naimis as I recall).  As for Darkholm, I ran there back in the
early '90s, but consolidated everything into Free Blades and here.  If you check the
FB newsletter from about a turn back, you'll see I've done a Semester Report there.
I also do Annual Reviews in the slow arenas I'm in. -- Drake

Jinx -- Noted. -- Drake

Shocking Toad -- Happy to oblige. -- Drake
P.S.  So, just which skill of Jinx's is it that everyone fears?

Ski Mask -- Might I suggest starting the Ducks Who Duck organization?  It might cut
down on getting cut down. -- Uu Doewanakno the symmetrical

     Clever, very clever.

     I hate clever warriors.

Carrie Nation -- There was dessert?  I don't remember getting dessert!  I was gypped!
-- Luna Tyck

     No gyps 'em, sorry.

Ho-Chan -- Thankee. -- Drake

Nutt Brittle -- Just what would they like to see their names on top of? -- Drake

Sultan -- Hey!  I'm the supposed to the Master of Mediocrity around here!  How dare
you horn in on my turf.  Harumph.  I'll show you mediocre. -- Drake

Jack Sprat -- I have had it with your superior attitude!  Fat is GOOD for you, it
insulates the liver against slander and vile slurs. -- Delice the Red, eater of fat
(within reason, of course)

     Talk about opening cans of worms, if you end up catching a lot of "fat" jokes,
     don't blame anyone else!  Not that I'd call you fat, just, um, round and softly
     packed....

Sable -- It was all some kind of plot to make me look foolish, *I* know!  You spiked
my water bottle with VILE spirits, and then by your mesmeric gestures (learned from
the nefarious Mime, no doubt!) you got me leaping left, left, left until I FELL OVER
with dizziness!  No good will come of this, young man!  I warn you once, and that is
all! -- Carrie Nation

     Mesmeric gestures?  Darn, I missed that.

Val Bemeriki -- I personally (as opposed to my manager) think that your problem was
your weapon.  Some weapons are simply not suited to use at certain times of day and
in certain weathers.  For instance, try using a longbow during a rainstorm!  But
maybe you need to vary that a little, hmm?  Whatever, good luck. -- Hallie O'Dene
P.S.  Was it a new strategy?

Nasty Nitters -- You foul MAMMAL!  To throw rotten tomatoes--TOMATOES, I say!--at ME,
the Founder and President of Ducks With Swords!  The infamy! -- Ski Mask

Perfect Ten -- But you see, I'm an eleven! -- Lethe

Olaf -- These are my patented Quick-Dodge feet. -- Lethe

     So?  Oh, you mean, "not Isle feet."  Okay, if you say so.

"Big Cheese of Dueling Ducks"?  I love it!  Ski Mask as a pizza...great image, Olaf!
-- Hallie O'Dene, who had to endure Ski's ranting in Delarq Tor, too

Olaf, dear boy, you don't want me to cover up and have a heat stroke, do you?  If the
fans get too excited at my appearance, surely that is THEIR problem? -- Delice the
Red

     Fans are important, too.  After all, there are ALWAYS more gladiators showing up
     on the Isle, but we cherish our fans.  They're harder to replace.

Muffin Man -- "Worst ever"?  That's the kind of claim that brings losers out of the
woodwork, where they had been quietly chewing on splinters.  I know I've got a few
grads with negative bases, though I admit I don't THINK any of them are that bad--

I'll have to go check on it now.  Darn.  And there's an eight-footer over in Lirin
Kiv, though I don't know his bases.  But those sweeping claims just open cans of
worms right and left. -- Ho-Chan

Bubbles -- See that?  It took me a 60+ point downchallenge to teach you one measly
skill.  Who would have thought? -- Sir Cuitous, straight to the point, as always

Looming Bird -- I felt it!  I felt it! -- Mashe(d)

Talos -- Nice learns!!!  (one for each) -- Com Dot

Emerald Dragonfly -- Worth the loss. -- Spazz

Tickles -- What can I say:  I thought a win would be nice for me for a change. --
W.T. Pooh, not too bright

Doc Steele -- Enjoy picking on me here, in Home Guard, where my warriors are weak, I
admit.  Keep it up, though, and I'll just have to return the favor in Primus and
Gateway! -- Sultan, telling it like it is

Strongest #3 -- I don't suppose you'd be willing to go up a class, would you? -- W.T.
Pooh, missing our old fights

                 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!
