In the Far West:

     Ashon Chang studied the coastline.  It was barely visible in the twilight, but
close enough that he could smell turned earth and mown hay.  "We're taking a risk
anchoring here," he murmured.  "Even if we're not seen from the land, I would expect
passing ships...."
     "You have a better idea?" Werre growled.
     Startled, the samurai glanced over his shoulder.  He hadn't realized that anyone
was near enough to hear him.  "No, I was talking to myself.  Worrying out loud."
     "Plenty to worry about," the Adantri agreed.  "But it's a wasted effort.
Doesn't change anything.  Know the risks and what could go wrong, know what your
options are in dealing with them, and then relax."
     Ashon Chang glanced farther along the rail, to where Rughal was pacing and
looking about as relaxed as a tiger in a cage.  "Easy to say, not so easy for some to
do...."
     Werre followed his gaze and laughed.  "Too bad there's no way to harness that
energy!  The people who took Shania had better watch out--Rughal will be nearly
berserk by the time we get there."
     "Assuming we can find her," the samurai said somberly.  "We don't have much to
go on."
     Werre laughed again.  "We can use Rughal as a hunting dog, if we have to!"  Then
he sobered, too.  "If she's still alive, we'll find her.  But I wish we knew more
about the people we'll be dealing with."
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     "These people are insane!" Shania muttered.  She kept her head down for the
properly submissive appearance, but that didn't stop her from seeing and hearing
enough of what was going on around her.  They were crossing a medium-sized plaza
overlooking the inner harbor.  It was crowded with jostling merchants and sailors and
housewives shopping, petty nobles surrounded by their retinues of servants and
soldiers.  A colorful crowd, and a noisy one, and a crowd that seemed unmoved by the
sacrifices being carried out on a raised platform to one side.  "They're killing
children," she hissed.  "Babies!"
     Zakar, who had one hand locked around her wrist, pulling her forward steadily,
shrugged slightly.  "They're desperate.  And most of the babies wouldn't live to
their second birthday anyway.  None will, if the Arcanum isn't stabilized.  End of
the world as we know it.  Besides, being sacrificed is an honor.  Ask any of the
priests."  He towed her into an alley behind the sacrificial platform, along the
narrow way at a fast trot that left her breathless, and out into another, smaller,
plaza.
     "They're killing babies.  It isn't--"
     Zakar stopped, forcing her to look at him.  "Fair?  Is that what you were going
to say?  LIFE isn't fair.  We couldn't have saved any of those babies, woman.  We'd
just have added our deaths to theirs--which might have amused the gods, but it
wouldn't have accomplished anything worth doing."
     "But--"
     "They tell me you're centuries old, elf woman.  How did you last so long without
recognizing the facts?  Life is HARD, woman.  The universe is a cannibal.  It brings
us to life, and then it eats us without a qualm.  There is no such thing as 'fair' in
life."
     "If you really believe that, why do anything at all?  Why not just curl up and
die?"
     "Because I won't give the universe, or the gods, or the priests, or ANYBODY the
satisfaction of seeing ME surrender.  I am nobody's easy meat!"  Apparently
considering the subject closed, he glanced up at the sky, gauging time by the stars.
"Almost dawn.  We wouldn't get ten steps trying to leave the city before dawn, but
after it...we've got a chance."
     "Good!  The sooner I'm out of this city, the better I'll feel," Shania muttered.
     Zakar laughed.  "Me, too!  I feel like a mouse trying to move inconspicuously
through a crowd of cats."  He glanced around the plaza, which was nearly deserted,
and picked a doorway to darkness on the left, heading in that direction.
     Once through the arch, the darkness was as complete as blindness.  The air was
cold, uninhabited, and smelled faintly of old blood.
     "We can wait for dawn here," Zakar said.  "No one will disturb us.  You said you
can contact your companions, if you have a place to be quiet and concentrate.  This
is it.  Tell 'em we're leaving the city on the west side and will move along the
shore till we meet them."
     "I may be able to contact them," Shania corrected him.  She reached out her free
hand, found a wall, and slid down to a sitting position.  "I will try, but I make no
promises."

Various places in the Multiverse:

     The Dwarf scowled across his desk, a slab of polished granite that would have
looked over-large in front of a giant.  His chief wizards looked back at him calmly.
Their employer was a hard man, but he didn't penalize messengers for the bad news
they brought.  Usually.  "It's HER, isn't it?  This it the kind of low, underhanded,
nasty action I'd expect from someone who's part Orc and part Elf.  The two worst
races you could find!  How bad is it?"
     "She's found all the obvious gates," the wizard Skaefin said.  "From the power
flux, I assume she plans to close them.  This will cause more problems for her than
for us, but still..." his frown was almost as formidable as the Dwarf's.  "It's a
matter of principle!  We should strike back!"
     "Could be dangerous, that," the sorceress Lilinith murmured.  "Now that she's
terminating her Kaikwok project, she'll have the manpower to do...many violent
things.  We don't NEED that kind of trouble.  Sir."
     "The real problem will be our manpower."  The lizard mage Frilz's voice was dry,
as always, but there was a hint of genuine concern.  "Those of our people who
immigrated here from Ghea may find themselves dragged back against their wills.  It
could weaken our defense."
     "She can retrieve the immigrants?"  The Dwarf visibly shrugged off his anger to
concentrate on the immediate threat.  "What are the parameters?"
     "Not as bad as it might be," Skaefin said promptly.  "My researches indicate
there's a time limit.  I don't know what, exactly, that limit is--the flux between
dimensions makes it difficult to--"
     "Don't make excuses," the Dwarf snapped.  "I assume you did your best.  What's
the approximate time limit?"
     "Six months or so, I think."  Skaefin glanced at his fellow wizards for
confirmation.
     Both nodded.
     "More or less," Frilz confirmed.  "It depends on how much of her own power she
wants to expend.  Those who came of their own choice and were properly integrated
will be resistant even if they haven't been here long.  The ones who stumbled through
gates accidentally...."  He spread his hands in the gesture that served his race for
a shrug.
     "Loss of the involuntary immigrants won't be a problem," Lilinith agreed.  "But
there is a chance, a good one I believe, that people who are closely associated with
them when they are, shall we say, retrieved may be hauled away with them."
     "And because they came by chance, we don't know where they are," the Dwarf
finished, "or who they're with."  He shrugged.  "If that's all she can do, we'll be
fine.  She needs us more than we need her.  But she's got more than one trick up her
sleeve.  The situation will have to be watched closely."
     The Dwarf's fourth adviser, the giant Hadrubal, stirred finally.  "We might send
a counter-force into HER universe," he rumbled.
     "No."  The Dwarf's voice was emphatic.  "Right now, we're in the right.  WE
aren't taking hostile actions, we're the DEFENDERS.  That gives us a potent edge in
the forum of multiversal opinion.  I won't risk that unless I can be sure that such a
stance would gain us much more.  There will be no invasion from here.  Not now,
anyway."

     Scarlatti had expected them to go by ship to some other island, or to the
mainland of this world, whatever it was.  But the lizard men were leading the way to
high ground, and from the arrangement of the trees and stones on that knoll, he
realized that the transportation was going to be magical.  Teleportation, perhaps--he
had to remind himself that the instability that made teleportation on Ghea so
dangerous did not apply here.  Wherever here was.  Possibly a true Gate.  Would that
mean that the home of the lizard folk was in a different world, just as Ghea was in a
different world from this one?
     "If they can open this Gate," Carris Fallstar muttered, "they can open a Gate to
Ghea."
     "It's easier to open a Gate that is already there," Fizban pointed out.  "As
this one which will lead us to their home clearly is.  The Gate to OUR home will have
to be found or created first.  We must do this their way--their Gates first."
     "That is the bargain we agreed to," Rogan added.
     "I wasn't suggesting we break it," Carris snapped.  "You humans are too damned
touchy about things like that--which shows your race's basic unreliability.  I was
just making an observation."
     The oldest of the lizard men, the one that might be a wizard, though his regalia
of bones and shells and odd bits of this and that seemed more like the gear of a
witchdoctor, gestured them forward.  They took positions at his direction, along with
an equal number of lizard warriors.
     The old lizard shook his rattle and whistled a call into the sky.  Power rippled
around him.  Around them.  The world faded to gray.

     Power rippled across the sea, turning blue water to steel gray and the clear sky
to a dome of white glass.
     "Sorcery!" the ship's captain gasped.  He made a sign to avert ill fortune.
     A futile sign, Shylock knew.  The power that gripped this ship, the power he
could feel all around him, was too great for such a simple preventive measure.  There
was power enough here to turn the world inside out.
     And that was what it was doing.

                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Hail, Free Blades!

     Well, where did everyone go?  My team all goes off to defend the Gate and leaves
me as the lone defender and they never come back!  Looks like a lot of the warriors
from here never came back either.  I did hear that they where able to finally close
the gate and my team mates where able to put down eight of the gate monsters in the
process!  Good job guys and also to everyone else who volunteered from our fine
arena!  Wish I had been there but I will have to be happy defending the throne,
especially against the returning warriors with their experience fighting the Gate!

                       -- Sethra Lavode

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Wow!  This is, you know, totally a big change.  Fifty fights!  Albendranious!  
And no standbys, either, which is good because they were all having a morning after 
on account of the new year, only it was a week after and STILL!  Of course, not very 
many of those fights were action packed or, you know, exciting, but we can't have 
everything.  As if!
     Dark Angels were avoided by Darkmoon.  I don't know why.  It's all dark to me.
     Fut Cough got the most challenges, but *I* think he just needed, you know, cough 
syrup.  Or else new socks.  All together, except that they were actually separate, 
there were seventeen challenges, with one being tv and the rest radio or even, like, 
telegrams.  But that's okay.  I mean, if you care enough to challenge, that's what 
counts, right?
     Nobody died, which is good.  Dying is, like, totally not how you want to start 
the new year.
     The longest fight was ten minutes, which is enough for a turtle, if I had a 
turtle, which I don't, because what would I be doing with a turtle?

     They want me to make this short and, like, really fast.  They always want that.  
Maybe today I will because of having to put the finishing touches on my tan for the 
Tourney.  I mean, it has to be good, you know?

(19-15-1,84) of 2ND ARCTIC GUARDS.  Up 17.  TEXAS GLITTER beat CENTURION in an 
exciting 1 minute brutal Challenge match.  What I want to know is, is Texas glitter 
bigger than all the other kinds of glitter?  Like maybe Alaska glitter or, you know, 
any other kind?

(19-24-0,83) of 2ND ARCTIC GUARDS.  Down 2.  LORD FIREFLASH was bested by RAVEN in a

34-1,69) of CROC FILES.  Up 1.  DOC HOLIDAY was beaten by AGRO in a crowd pleasing 4

4198) (51-85-1,177) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 27.  LIMA BEAN FLAMBE overpowered MADBULL 
in a 1 minute uneven Challenge struggle.  Wow, I thought Madbull would eat anything!

gustatory.

(25-23-0,118) of DEMONS OF DARKNESS 2.  Up 6.  MAXWELL SMART was handily defeated by 
VENRIC in a 2 minute uneven Challenge fight.  If lawmen can lose to demons, does this 
mean we're in trouble?  Being invaded, maybe, and no one to STOP it?  I mean, I want 
to know!
     NEBUCHADNEZZAR (22-5821) (23-17-0,139) of BLADES OF WONDER challenged SUPERIOR 
FORCES (33-4543) (59-90-2,129) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY.  Down 10.  NEBUCHADNEZZAR

(32-19-1,181) of THE CHADS.  Up 26.  WYATT EARP was overcome by RILLION in an 
exciting 6 minute brutal Challenge contest.  Wyatt was probably confused, on account 
of the Arenamaster where he comes from in Riztab is Rillion, too, but a different 
Rillion, but still confusing.
     LADY EMILY (33-6626) (23-14-1,175) of LUROCIANS II challenged KELOS (55-30) (56-
82-3,173) of ROCANIS RIDERS.  Down 2.  LADY EMILY demolished KELOS in a 1 minute 
mismatched Challenge match.  But it was totally polite.  Like what Emma Le Post says.  
With tea and, you know, little cakes with pink icing.  Only not ice, it's just CALLED 
icing.
     RED BARON (33-1092) (32-31-3,151) of LUROCIANS II challenged SWEET CHASTITY (35-
504) (36-29-1,148) of 22 ACACIA AVENUE.  Down 3.  RED BARON savagely defeated SWEET 
CHASTITY in a popular 2 minute gory Challenge melee.  Some people can't eat pizza, 
or, you know, airplanes either.  I don't eat airplanes, myself.  As if!
     LORD REDMOND (12-4109) (33-19-1,168) of LUROCIANS IV challenged HOUSE MOUSE (55-
221) (109-176-2,147) of RHYME TYME.  Down 21.  LORD REDMOND was vanquished by HOUSE 
MOUSE in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  Just because House has five times as 
many fights?  That is so, you know, totally lazy!
     PANIC ATTACK (9-3624) (28-17-1,187) of DSM4 challenged GROGGY DOGGY (55-223) 
(116-174-0,193) of RHYME TYME.  Up 6.  PANIC ATTACK lost to GROGGY DOGGY in a 2 
minute Challenge fight.  *I* saw what happened.  That dumb dog, which it IS a dumb 
dog, because it shed all OVER my towel, tripped and FELL on Panic Attack and that's 
when we found out that Panic is, like, allergic.
     LORD LIGHTSPEED (33-2928) (35-27-3,181) of LUROCIANS II challenged KOOSH BALL 
(71-3536) (38-30-0,193) of STUFF I BROUGHT.  Up 12.  LORD LIGHTSPEED was outwaited by 
KOOSH BALL in a 8 minute Challenge melee.  Naturally.  I mean Lord is always dashing 
around, and Koosh is, like, totally round but kind of squashy and relaxed, and Lord 
just got TIRED.  It happens, you know?
     BEAG MAGDA (12-4380) (45-29-2,190) of DARKMOON challenged LUMP O'GORE (13-1212) 
(91-82-5,194) of ILLFANG PACT.  Up 4.  BEAG MAGDA devastated LUMP O'GORE in a 2 
minute mismatched Challenge match.  More little lumps of gore.  This is really messy.
     HAYSEED X-IV (82-6120) (21-13-2,193) of PROJECT HAYSEED challenged TEMPEST (4-
4503) (28-18-1,196) of STORM FRONT.  Up 3.  HAYSEED X-IV demolished TEMPEST in a 1 
minute mismatched Challenge competition.  What I don't understand is, how did we end 
up with a haystack in the middle of the arena afterward?  It was in the way!
     WOUNDWORT (12-4228) (48-34-0,226) of DARKMOON challenged NEBUCHADNEZZER (15-
4097) (42-31-0,230) of GRAVEYARD GLORY.  Up 4.  WOUNDWORT was devastated by 
NEBUCHADNEZZER in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge contest.  What makes a graveyard 
glorious, or, you know, more glorious than some other graveyard?  I've been meaning 
to ask.
     MIMR (82-3783) (50-37-2,248) of SOL  INVICTUS challenged MOONJUMPER (16-3062) 
(60-91-1,252) of PUNNY AMINALS.  Up 4.  MIMR overcame MOONJUMPER in a popular 2 
minute gruesome Challenge match.  Because of Mimr being a Sun person, and the sun is 
brighter than the moon, of course.

     And for being Lord Marshall:  SETHRA LAVODE (71-4060) (28-5-0,280) of CASTLE 
BLACK TV challenged FUT COUGH (17-4815) (35-11-0,270) of IMMORTAL ASYLUM.  Down 10.  
SETHRA LAVODE devastated FUT COUGH in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge Title fight.  
This was something or other, and everybody gets a drink with an umbrella in it, and I 
have to go pack.

                                        Debby T.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Beag Magda -- Have you noticed how completely the announcers get things wrong?
"Berserker fury," HA!  That was merely concentration, with grimaces. -- Moonjumper

     You shouldn't grimace.  Didn't your mother warn you about your face freezing
     that way?

Rillion tW -- You weren't paying attention.  How can you expect to learn anything if
you let your mind wander around in the stands during the fight? -- Raven Eyes

Tempest -- I don't think the train and the rating will mollify Madbull any.  It isn't
like he USES parry skills. -- Redfox

Sweet Chastity -- Fair lady, I feel suddenly more determined and will act on my
desire to have dinner with you and perhaps spend some pleasant time with you.  Will
you join me for dinner and a drive through the park? -- Redfox

Goldie -- Ha!  I'll make myself a pair of crocodile boots and retire, that's what *I*
will do. -- Brangus

Scribe -- All of the following warriors would gladly assist Jorja in adventures, if
asked:  The Lord Protectors Queen Amazonia (12-4796) in Home Guard, Artemisia (12-
5096) in Free Blades regional and Captain of a sleek Man O'War, The Osprey, MIMR (82
3783) in Free Blades regional, Woundwort (12-4228) in Free Blades regional, Beag
Magda (12-4380) in Free Blades regional, and Sampsa (31-4233) in Free Blades
regional; and the regular DM warriors, Briarthorn (12-5671), AGLIBOL (12-5848), Inmar
(31-4388), Spatha (31-4996), Rauni (31-5035), and Mani (31-5102).  All of these fight
or have fought in arenas alongside Jorja's warriors and we appreciate her efforts to
liven things up on the sands and with the personals. -- Bobby Bigfoot, for Darkmoon,
etc...

Moonjumper -- I was wondering, have you seen my advanced master rating in defense?  I
seem to have lost it just before our fight began. -- Beag Magda

Julius -- The drinks are on me, for what was skill #112, huzzah! -- Woundwort

Groggy Doggy -- Cheers to a truly well fought bout; you really know how to wow the
crowd.  I look forward to many more of them with you this split. -- Mimr

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

                       TOURNEY FREEZE CHANGE -- ADVANCE NOTICE

     Beginning at the Winter Face-to-Face in Tempe (January 2004), we will implement 
several changes affecting tournaments.  The tournament announcement for the upcoming 
FTF and future tourneys will reflect these changes.
     First, we will eliminate the tourney freeze for all regular DM warrior classes.  
Regular DM warriors will not be classed ahead of the tournament, but instead will 
fight according to their FE on the date of the tourney.  There will still be a freeze 
for the ADM classes, occurring on the same timeline as before, approximately 6 weeks 
before the tournament.
     In addition to the above change, the warrior classes will be slightly altered.  
The new tourney classes will be as follows:

                DM Tourney Classes                 ADM Tourney Classes
              ======================              ======================
                  0 FE:  Rookies                        Freshmen
                1-4 FE:  Apprentices                    ADM
               5-10 FE:  Initiates                      Eligibles
              11-20 FE:  Adepts                      ---induction---
              21-30 FE:  Champions                      Contenders
                31+ FE:  Challengers                    Primus

     All regular DM tourney classes will remain solely FE based.  All ADM classes will 
now be based on warrior characteristics (i.e., the ADM split algorithm), including the 
Freshmen class.
     The Gateway and Primus arenas will be merging before the FTF to form one top 
arena.  These warriors will be split into two tournament classes, the Contenders and 
the Primus classes, again based upon their characteristics.  More information on this 
will be published in the newsletters for those arenas.
     If you have any questions about the above changes, please contact Customer 
Service.  Good luck in your games.
