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."

Somewhere in the Far West:

     "She's sick!"  The voice was male, unfamiliar, annoyed.  The language was
unfamiliar, too, but Shania understood it.  Part of her gift for knowing, she
supposed.  The gift had declined of late, as a part of the decay of the Arcanum; that
it had come back in part was doubtless significant...of something.  She didn't want
to think about it right now.  "A sick woman is no use to us!"
     Shania kept her eyes closed, stayed relaxed.  The man was talking about her, but
she felt no need to discuss her health with a stranger.
     "She's sick because she is closely linked with the Arcanum, and the Arcanum is
sick."  A different voice, probably male, but older, tireder.  "She is less useful
than she would have been a month ago, but there is no value in lamenting what has
passed.  And no one else would be of any use at all."
     The first voice muttered what was apparently a curse.  Footsteps departed.
     "I know you are awake," the tired voice said, "and that you can understand me.
You may as well admit it."
     Shania opened her eyes.  The man looked to be of medium height and might once
have been physically powerful, but all that was left now was broad bone structure and
withered hide.  He didn't appear to be of any race known to her, being bronze-skinned
with a brutal beak of a nose, high cheekbones, narrow black eyes, and iron-gray hair.
His mouth was narrow, almost lipless.  The dominant characteristics in his face were
a fierce intelligence and an implacable will.  He would make a bad enemy.
     "What do you want of me?" she asked idly.  She thought it unlikely that she
would help this man in anything, but no harm in asking.
     "Your aid in healing the Pillar of the West."  A gesture indicated something
just out of her line of sight.
     She shifted, noting that she was on a narrow pallet rather than a real bed, far
enough to look in that direction.  A massive dark stone had been carved into the
likeness of a man squatting and holding his hands cupped against his chest.  Held in
the hands was a sphere of crystal, dull gray in color except as flashes of livid
reddish light shivered across it.  The Eye of the West, and barely functional.
     "I have little power at present," she said.  "What can I do that you cannot?"
     "Your power is of no value," the man answered flatly.  "The stone is dying
because the spirit that inhabits and animates it is dying.  As you are the person
mostly closely attuned to it at this time, you are the obvious one to replace the
dying spirit.  By the gods' favor, you may survive long enough for us to find and
attune a younger, stronger woman to assume the burden."
     Shania had not expected to be so surprised, but that this old man proposed to
sacrifice her to the stone in order to preserve its function for a few days or weeks
longer came as a shock.  "Does my position on this make any difference?"
     "No."
     "Not even if I know of other ways to stabilize the stone?  Non-fatal ways?"
     "There are no other ways.  If you will not accept your role as the honor it is,
you will accept it anyway.  The time for choice is long past."

Talahya?

     "I'm not sure that would be a good idea," Fizban said cautiously.  "We don't
know where we are, but we DO know that the Gate we came through must be near here.
If we go farther away, we could lose track of our route home."
     Moonjumper patted his hand.  "It's okay, we're as lost as we'll ever be
already!"
     "What wonderful news."  The old wizard sighed.
     "Besides, we're Lord Protectors," Scarlatti pointed out, straightening up from
his examination of the water.  "Part of our DUTY is to explore new realms."
     "And our pleasure, as well," Carris Fallstar agreed.  "Let's see if there is a
boat, a ferry or some other boat.  I feel like sailing!"
     Fizban looked from one to another of his companions, shook his head slightly,
and sighed.  Maybe it was a sign of his age, but he really didn't like the idea of
getting completely lost.  At least here, there was the illusion that by retracing
their steps, they could find the Gate they'd come through and return to the Isle.
     Rodan leaned closer to him.  "It will be okay," the blind gladiator murmured.
"I can retrace a long route as easily as a short one.  And it is better to do
something, even something wrong, than to do nothing."

Lirin Kiv?

     The carriage moved through the streets slowly, as though the driver was feeling
his way in the fog.  The fog wasn't heavy enough to justify that kind of groping
progress, but Shylock kept quiet.  No point in berating the driver.  Besides, the
Lord Protector was also making full use of the chance to stare around.  So was
Clemenda, he noted, well, that was okay.  He didn't normally like people around him
to be TOO alert, but in this peculiar situation, no telling what might be significant
and who might notice it first.
     The temple to Somebody Who Wasn't Mantor vanished behind them.  Shylock counted
turns and blocks and finally set his teeth against possible disaster and looked
toward where the arena should have been.  Hmm.  Not the same structure, but there
were points of similarity.
     It might be an arena.

Sorry to be so brief, but time and heat is pressing.  More to come, if it rains. --

                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                         Reflections by the Lady's Protector

Hello, Primus....

     I'm here, finally here.  After a horrible mismatch against Iron Princess (Doc
Steele was right, grin) I AM FINALLY HERE!!!!!  And of course we all know why Doc
Steele doesn't like me, (because I am so much better than Iron Princess, no offense,
gal).
     To be honest, I really enjoy being here.  A proof of that is that I'm allowed to
write this column.  I really do want to write some ads every now and then but my
manager just won't let me.  Damn half Greek.
     Now...I will take someone's advice and "bust out the avoids"....  =3D>  Thundr +
Litening....
     FYI, I still have a couple of trains left, thirteen, to be more accurate.  When
this is done (approx 50 years or so) I will probably have a better chance at beating
all you guys up here.
     Next turn's challenge goes to Mendelssohn.  But what do I have to say about
that...tere must be some TVs out there chasing my butt.

Good luck to you all, and I hope to see you again next turn.

Timkord

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Well, here we are yet again.  Here I am, at any rate; I don't know where you
might be.  Not here, or it'd be mighty crowded.  Plus I don't think I've got enough
to feed all of you.  Luckily, at the gathering that's in progress or has just
happened (depending on when you read this), you have to provide your own food.
     The big news this cycle is again the title fight.  One of our three TV
challenges was from WHITE DOVE to TIMKORD.  Though it was a good fight from my point
of view, I doubt Timkord would agree, what with having lost and all.  I guess writing
a column doesn't guarantee a victory.  It does guarantee a happy spy reporter, at
least.  Sleepy, perhaps, but happy.  So Dove, be sure to write a column for us.
     The second TV challenge was from FRAC to the slightly lower ranked but
apparently similarly experienced XOTHUZYL.  I'm sorry to be biased, but I'm always
glad to see XOTHUZYL lose.  It's nothing personal, I just hate trying to pronounce
the name.  How DO you pronounce it, anyhow?
     The third and final TV challenge went from SUG to RAETH.  The two appeared
fairly evenly matched, though the bookies were posting odds in favour of Sug.  Looks
like they knew whereof they posted, as Sug put down Raeth in short order.
     Snide seemed to think the fight between OLIVE DRAB and SLINK was worthy of
mention because of the difference in rank and the subsequent change in rank.  Since
it was a random matchup, I don't know that it really makes much difference.  I mean
to say, Olive Drab did lose and go from 73 to 132 and Slink won and went from 131 to
75, but they didn't do it by choice.  Still, there you have the facts; whatever you
wish to make of them.
     Hmmm...TIMKORD was the most challenged warrior and we've already talked about
that.  THE REVELATION was the most avoided team.  YOUNG JUSTICE was doing the
avoiding.  Some people just don't want to have things revealed....  Actually, make
that some PERSON, since HARM is the only Young Justician running.  I guess the rest
of you are spreading your avoids around.  Harm was the last of the challengers this
cycle (there were a whole nine of 'em).  He chose to fight BEAN and beat the legume
up, down, and sideways.
     We didn't have any real turtles this cycle, just two seven minute fights.  I had
plenty of iced tea, so I didn't mind 'em at all.  BELLEROPHON gave VIOLENT FURY its
179th loss.  I've known this once Lirin Kivian to write personals; maybe it'll happen
again.  The other seven minute fight was between GRIM REAVER and the unfortunate
MUDMINNOW.  Minnows, muddy or not, just don't do well out of the water, especially
when it's this hot....
     Hmmm...no deaths today.  It also looks as though no one fought a standby.
That's always a nice thing from this side of the table.  Can't have everyone getting
free wins, after all....
     I see a note at the end here that says Snide was writing the notes with a
dagger.  That explains a lot.  A pen or pencil would be a lot more legible.  If we
all pitch in a penny, we could buy Snide a new box of pencils.
     Until next time, remember to carry you nice, clean hankie (a box of tissues
works too).

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Saint -- I'm pretty sure I wrote my column, I think it just got lost in transit or
something.  Oh well, after two no columns in a row, I deserve to take a beating.
I'll be back, with a column! -- Iron Princess

     Ah, the column was "in the mail", eh? *grin* -- The Saint

Timkord -- Well done.  You got close the fight before, and Doc didn't change anything
and this time you pulled it off.  Can you beat me without a knockdown?  We'll find
out.  Congratulations on getting the Throne.  I hope you respect the title, and write
a column. -- Iron Princess

     Happily, he did.  Write a column, I mean. -- The Saint
     P.S.  And now it's someone else's turn....

Sandman -- You know what is funny is that until I read your ad to Hoffa, you were
absolutely flying under the radar.  But now that you mention it, you record is pretty
damn close to mine, and you have a lot of fights so it won't fall too easily.
Anyway, I didn't ask Hoffa before, but I will now. :) -- Doc Steele

Saluki -- You've got me panting like a dog. -- Trey the Edge
P.S.  I really go for blondes.

Sean Upchurch -- What are you doing here?  Shouldn't you be in Gateway? -- Nelinaria

Paris Green -- I never mess with stuff like that. -- Miha-Tahali
P.S.  Some other shade of green would likely become you more.

Neptune -- Not what I was hoping for.  Well done. -- Rebina tyl Khol

The Saint -- Well, yes, but there's clay, and then there's CLAY.  You know? -- Trey
the Edge

     Yes, but on the other hand, there's *clay*. -- The Saint

Harm -- I stand corrected (because there's a cat on my chair).  You are right,
"Classic" is a much classier descriptor. -- Rebina tyl Khol

Hoffa -- I won't be fighting in Primus for the next two or three turns.  You might
want to put your challenges to better use, rather than waste them on my warriors. --
The Sandman

The Sandman -- Naw, Doc Steele would rather gargle with Super Glue than ask my help.
(Technically, he'd probably rather that I gargle with Super Glue....)  In any case,
my interest in challenging your guys is not because you're a couple of points below
Doc Steele, but because you're a couple of points above ME!  And no small lot of
laziness.  You see, a few turns ago, Sir Boyd wrote me a personal that required a
response.  For my response to be factual, I had to make a few really tasteless
challenges.  And of course, Tremor and Maruc caught my eye and as such, were
prominently represented on my warriors' challenge lines!
     Unfortunately, this flurry of activity exhausted me for some time.  And rather
than redoing entire strategy sheets, I just kept faxing in the same ones.  Over and
over and over...you get the idea.  Anyhow, I suppose that I'll lay off for a while.
After all, I had this kind of BS pulled on me when I first got Primus guys in the top
ranks.  Ultimately, the offending party paid a steep price in the form of endless TV
challenges of ancient and once well thought of warriors who just couldn't hang with
the new class of "super" warriors.  Now, both the warriors and manager are gone from
Primus.  I should probably avoid the same fate.  Or maybe I'm just lying and you
SHOULD avoid.  In any case, good luck to you, too! -- Hoffa

     Gargle with superglue?  There has to be SOME reason that sprang to your mind.
     Do tell. -- The Saint, with 'satiable curiosity

Sultan -- You DOLT!!!  I challenged with Frac because ABT is ranked two classes below
Tamed S--head.  Speaking of that, why do you have TS ranked so high?  Aren't you
afraid some folks will notice that TS has about 35 trains to go and can't possibly
compete at the level he's at?  I'd be worried that he'd get TVed constantly at that
level.  I mean, look, Whirling Fury is RIGHT below him!!!  You must know something
that I don't.... -- Hoffa

     That last comment begs a response, but I shall be strong and resist. -- The
     Saint, trying to live up to the name

Timkord -- And speaking of "way up there".... -- Hoffa

All -- Would you be willing to proxy my lunger Ganglare at the Face-to-Face?  He's
fighting in the champions tourney.  Thanks.  Write:  Michael Rogers #25335-013, PO
Box 6000, Florence, Co 81226 -- Skullagrim

     STOP THINKING TOGS!!!!!  It's here.  Well, almost here anyway.  We're looking at
a start date of the first turn in Aradi (DM 60) following the Fall Mail-In.  This
should give everyone sufficient time to study the new ultra-improved T#%S IV rules 
and prep accordingly.  So without further ado, here is your handy-dandy guide to
winning your very own Golden Scrod (and some other very cool prizes to be announced
officially before the start of the tourney that must not be named):
1.  Each T#%S team consists of two managers.  After the tourney starts, there will be
    no switching partners whatsoever, so choose your partners wisely.  T#%S IV will
    last for 13 turns, so pick a partner you can stand for 6 months or so.  The only
    team I know of so far is last TOGS winners:  Ganolus Oakleaf/Hombre of Blood
    Related/Thieves Guild.  Hey, this is fun!
2.  The T#%S entry fee is 2 team setups per manager.  This means 4 setups per T#%S
    team.  This entry fee is required before the start of the tourney with no
    exceptions being made.  This is to ensure that nobody gets screwed if a team or
    manager decides to back out early.  To pay the entry fee either:
    a) send $10 cash/check/money order/ or whatever to me personally at:
       Andy Salveson
       6812 Romanzo Way
       Elk Grove, CA 95758
    b) get RSI to send me 2 team setup gift certificates.  Sorry, no credit cards and
       no old teams you have lying around will be accepted.
3.  T#%S point system:
    10 points for winning on your up-challenge against another T#%S warrior.
    7 points for winning on your even challenge of another T#%S warrior.
    7 points for winning on another T#%S warriors challenge.
    7 points for winning a random matchup against another T#%S warrior.
    4 points for winning on your down-challenge of another T#%S warrior.
    4 points for winning a random matchup against a non-T#%S warrior.  Do not fight
      your team mate, you will not get any points.  Also, you will not get any points
      if you challenge or get challenged by a non-T#%S team, so use your avoids
      wisely if you think someone is out to get you.
   10 points for being the Duelmaster.  This is in addition to all points listed
      above and will begin turn 1, so prep accordingly.
    5 points for every spotlight written by any team member, 1 per manager per turn.
      The minimum length of a spotlight to receive points is 1/2 column in the
      newsletter (that's 31 lines-each line 85 characters across) and I will be
      completely firm on this.  In addition to the length criteria, spotlights will
      not be given points if they are in any way plagiarized or if they are not
      Duelmasters or fantasy related.  I will be the sole judge of this.  If you're
      unsure if I will judge something to be Duelmasters or fantasy related, then
      e-mail me before you write the spotlight and ask me.  I reserve the right to
      take points away from a spotlight after they are given if I judge at a later
      time that the spotlight has been plagiarized.
   -5 points per manager per turn every time a manager does not at least write one
      personal ad.
   -5 points for being the team that avoided the most.
     If you participated in TOGS III, you'll notice some slight changes in the points
structure.  The main things are points for random match ups against non T#%S
warriors, bonus points for being the Duelmaster, new spotlight criteria, and no
points given for being the most avoided team.
4.  I already mentioned this, but T#%S IV will start the first turn in arena 60 after
    the Fall Mail-In runs and it will last for 13 turns.  There will not be a
    Survivor format this time around, meaning no eliminations.  I will still be doing
    the multipliers at the end, however.  This means that all points accumulated by a
    team on turns 10 and 11 will be multiplied by 1.5 and all points accumulated by
    each team on turns 12 and 13 will be multiplied by 2.
5.  Prizes are yet to be determined, but I'll tell you what I know.  There will be
    prizes given out each turn to whichever team scores the most combined points on a
    given turn.  Tie breakers will go to the team with the most wins on that turn and
    then to the team with most overall points.  I have asked RSI for the same prizes
    as last TOGS which were transferring any warrior to arena 60 and renaming Aradi
    for approximately 6 months, but we'll see what they come back with.  I haven't
    decided how to split the prizes up, partly because I don't know how many teams
    will be entering yet, but I do know the prizes will be split among the top 3
    teams at the end.  I will announce the exact breakdown of everything when I know
    more.
6.  And just like TOGS III, Death Stud and I will be the sole arbiters of any dispute
    that may arise.  Whine all you like, but as Nuln told you last time, that's how
    it is.
7.  M & RR Clause (go ahead, read between the capitals):  I reserve the right to
    disallow entry to this tourney if you have a previous history of being a big fat
    mouth about everything.
     I think that pretty much covers it.  I will be accepting team entries as of now
and then posting them in the newsletters as I receive entry fees.  Please feel free
to e-mail me regarding any questions or comments at Ganolus@aol.com.  So everyone don
your best pair of leg warmers, hop on your favorite farm animal, and ride to Aradi
for the 4th kinda-annual Tournament that must not be named for no apparent reason
whatsoever, or T#%S IV, for short.  See ya'll there!
