Aruak City:

     Conversation in the Bulldog Inn stopped as the ground shifted slightly
underfoot, then resumed.  A little faster, a little more shrill.  There had been a
lot of earth tremors lately, and in one way, people were getting used to them.
Nobody rushed outside in alarm.  Nobody talked about moving to some other area.
There was a betting pool on when the next tremor would occur.
     But in another way, they weren't getting used to them at all.  Earthquakes in
Aruak City were WRONG.  In Seam, okay, if they were mild and didn't happen very often
(although lately they had been frequent and devastating).  You expected strange earth
movements in Seam, because of the hot springs.  Hot springs meant things like that
might happen.  But not HERE.
     "It's because of Krael rising," explained Thermodynamics, a gladiator from Point
passing through the city.  "The balances are disturbed.  You see, Krael came from the
bottom of the Trier, which is very cold.  Therefore, some place else has to become
very hot to balance it."  He paused and frowned.  "Or maybe some other place has to
sink, a down to balance the new up, so to speak."
     Adeolar, listening to him, sighed with exasperation.  "It isn't that," she
muttered.  "Oh, maybe the bit about some other area sinking to balance the rising of
Krael--I've got people watching for that, all along the coast.  But the 'hot and
cold' business--"
     "Let him talk," Kennelworth said, gauging the mood of the crowd.  "It's an
explanation people can accept, and they'll feel less alarmed by it.  We don't want a
riot, and there's nothing they can do about things right now, so...?"  He looked back
at the flame-haired manager.  "There isn't anything, is there?"
     Adie grimaced.  "I don't know.  I don't think stopping Khaldren in Zorpunt will
be enough to stop what's happening, now.  The spell he started has taken on a life of
its own.  I'm trying to discover a counterspell--that won't make things worse in some
other way!  But until then, just...treat the symptoms.  Fight the monsters, help the
people displaced," she shrugged, "the obvious things.  And keep arena deaths down,
because the blood feeds the spell."  She began to twist a lock of hair around her
finger, tugging on it thoughtfully.  "I've been thinking about a counterspell.  The
original magic came from Krael, however it got to the present.  Maybe the
counterspell can be found there."
     "Searching Krael for the spell that would sink it again will be dangerous," the
old innkeeper and manager warned.  "The reports say that there are people there who
are ready to defend it."
     "That's what gladiators are for, isn't it?" Adie asked.  "Protecting Alastari.
Stopping this spell that is bringing the past to life falls under that heading."

Iaye:

     Great Dane looked over the improvised barricade that divided the island of Iaye
from the risen city of Krael and whistled.  "You said they were regular people," he
commented, scanning the muddy approach.  "Those are, I guess they're zombies."
     Goff shrugged.  "I guess the regular people I saw when the city first rose were
wizards, at least some of them.  And there must have been plenty of dead around for
them to turn into zombies.  Damn.  How do you kill something that's already dead?"
     Great Dane glanced back at the people straggling toward the barricade from
Iaye's side.  "That isn't going to be our first problem.  The first one is, how do we
get our defenders to stand fast against them?  Those are fishermen, farmers,
shopkeepers.  You think they're going to fight zombies?"
     "Gladiators, too," Goff protested.
     "Not enough, if the wizard in charge of those zombies knows anything about
battle."

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Khalli seems to have been waylaid, Debby is still at the beach, and the other 
spy reporters came up with an assortment of creative reasons not to do this, so we're 
going with the golem today.  Sorry.

     Hail and well met warriors of ANDORAK!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  B. LLUD PITT caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MICHAEL HONORBLADE and was 
awarded 26 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GIGGY put 
down WARPATH, causing him to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  As is 
fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none 
other than Duelmaster MONICA VIRTUESHIELD herself.  This time out PLUTO made his bid 
for the throne as he TV challenged MONICA VIRTUESHIELD in an all out contest of skill 
for possession of the title!  Not for nothing has MONICA VIRTUESHIELD in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat skill 
yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in ANDORAK these days is WARCKERS.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding WARCKERS.  Indeed it was 
HEADBANGERS.  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, 
gladiators, how MERCURY of WAR SEEKERS challenged down 47 points to HOMELESS PRINCE.  
The weight of the challenge fell hard upon HOMELESS PRINCE and predictably he was 
defeated by MERCURY.  This is how to arouse the anger of an entire guild!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in ANDORAK as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Khalli -- Just a question...  How long would you say it took for you to convince SoV 
to play the Andorians way?  I think at least 3 or 4 months.  That is how long I will 
continue to DC him, IF he continues to play in the Andorian style, as you call it, 
then I will play as I have played in the last 10 years (the andorian way). -- Papaiz

Khalli -- I think most people here know my style of play.  I never DC and I am 
usually very quiet.  Don't try to make me look like the bad guy here after months and 
months of being DC'd.  In fact, he is still DCing in other arenas I am in.  I believe 
2 wrongs DO make a right in this case.  Also, why are you making me write PA's to 
explain myself?  I HATE writing PA's and will no longer continue to do so.  Besides, 
I don't think others want to here this BS. -- Papaiz

Monica -- Care for a rematch? -- Je Suis Bien

Khalli -- It is amazing that the few turns I have spent "playing fair", are the turns 
that I have caught the most grief.  Oh well, it was a good try at least... -- SOV

Papaiz -- It has taken me a little while, but I have finally figured out your whole 
tricky ways.  Nice job of staying quiet so I couldn't figure out who you were for a 
bit.  Just remember, what comes around goes around. -- SOV
P.S.  Just make sure you stick around in 26 for a bit.  It has almost turned into a 
ghost town!

Beavis -- Uhhhhhh, that sucked. -- Homeless Prince

Leeta Stormrider -- Nice fight.  Too bad we had to get matched up like that.  Good 
luck in picking up some more wins. -- JSB

Heather -- For a chick, you sure hit hard!  Ouch... -- Giggy

Leeta -- Provoke Doc Steele??!!  Riiiight.  I may be a down challenging rotten kinda 
guy, but stupid is not anywhere in there!  For what it is worth, most of the big name 
managers (Manager excluded) have been very cool about chatting about DM from time to 
time.  Most of them are very understanding about the difference between being a jerk 
in the arena, and being one in real life.  Something that Chaos Inc. obviously has 
difficulty with... -- Sablon-O-Vlad

Je Suis Bien -- No doubt, but I don't have to LIKE it. -- Leeta Stormrider

Duck Butter -- And yet... you're not a Duck.  Why is that? -- B. Llud Pitt

Talisman Shieldguard -- Hmm, our third losing fight in a row today; I think I see a 
trend here.  But: good fight!  What there was of it. -- Schendirk

Blackrazor -- That's the way it goes, little canary. -- Pussycat, trend-breaker

Papaiz -- I feel this overwhelming urge to sic you onto another Andorian elsewhere, 
who is down-challenging solely because of a personal he didn't like, but I have this 
creeping feeling that Ed. will pull the personal. -- Leeta

27 March 2004
     This notice is to inform the DM world that CHAOS INC. has added CHEETO to its
ranks.  He joins APEX, FLAGG, MATRIX, ASSAMITE, and RUDE BUDDHA as the 6th member.
May your chaotic wings spread disaster and CHAOS for all your days!  Welcome CHEETO!!

27 March 2004
     Has anyone seen it in print that the "Goat" is leaving the "Cartel"?  There were
some diplos to the effect of a special branch of the Cartel being formed, like secret
societies, governmental agencies and alliances certain agendas are developed.  To
obtain the desired effect of any agenda only key personnel can be used.  The "Goat"
is "Cartel" so until you see it with me announcing that I am not Cartel, remember,
"The Agenda of the Core is for you to fight for."  I hope this stops the confusion.
-- Goat

8 April 2004
CLICK (KLK) -- Remember, you asked for it.  Chaos is coming....

14 April 2004
CHAOS Inc. proudly announces our newest member, Silver Stroke.  He becomes the
seventh brother of Chaos.  We shall indeed be better for his joining.
