     Without thought, responding to the same trained impulse, every gladiator present
drew his or her sword, turning to face outward from their group.
     Blackwind more than half expected to see floods demons and monsters pouring
toward them from every direction.  If so, they must be invisible, all he could see
were the shadows that filled the valley.  He squinted.  "Is it my imagination, or is
it getting darker here?"  That would be bad.  Darkness would make it harder to fight.
     "Valley of Shadow," Math op Owain said.  "We should have realized--"
     "So you should," Uncle Wolf answered.  "In this place, the shadows are as
dangerous as what casts them."
     "More dangerous," Lord Malcorn corrected.
     The old shaman shrugged and nodded.  "Perhaps.  At that level of danger, the
distinction is unimportant."
     "How do we fight shadows?" Redfox asked.  "You must have had something in mind,
or you wouldn't have drawn us here."
     "The light is behind the... creatures that cast the shadows," Wolf pointed out.
"That makes the shadows advance toward you, ahead of the creatures.  You must make of
yourselves lights to drive the shadows back on their creators."
     "How can we--?"
     "No, 'Fox, I think I see what he means!"  Math drew the gladiators aside.  "Come
over out of the way, and I'll tell you.  Let them deal with the Door."
     "He's right," Necroma said before Math could begin his explanation.  "We *are*
lights if we know it."  She paused, selecting words.  "Here, even if it isn't exactly
the Spirit Lands, the spirit is what matters the most.  Sure, we're here physically--
and we can die physically--but just as the body dominates in the Mortal World, so the
spirit dominates here.  If our spirits are strong and bright, they'll be like lights
here!"
     "That's easy to *say*, and it sounds good," Blackwind objected, "but what are we
supposed to *do*?"
     "It's like... ah!  Like the meditation exercises they teach us on the Isle, to
increase our Will or our Wit," Math said.  "That kind of focus, but we concentrate on
light and life and warmth--"
     "Well put," Necroma said.  "And we'd better do it right now."
     "Not forgetting," Young Joan was actually beginning to glow as she concentrated,
"that we will have to deal with physical creatures once we have vanquished the
shadows."
                      ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     Gladiators muttered as they concentrated, mantras that had helped them meditate
on the Isle, or curses when their minds wavered and they lost the focus,
encouragement and advice to themselves and each other.
     Uncle Wolf's mouth quirked.  "They'll do," he said.  He turned his full
attention back to the Door they had to close.
     Malcorn hadn't heard his comment.  He was running his hands up and down through
the air as though feeling along a wall that stood between them and the Doorway and
doing some muttering of his own.  He pressed against it with both hands and the full
weight of his big body, snapping out three words that crackled with power.  Nothing
visible happened.
     The old shaman adjusted his perceptions to "see" the wall.  Still no response to
Malcorn's efforts.  He sighed.  "If it was easy," he muttered, "it would need us to
do it."
     Malcorn smiled grimly.  "True."  He knocked on the wall of air.  "I think this
may be more in your line than mine."
     Wolf squinted.  "Some kind of elemental," he decided.  "Air elemental--wind?"
He laid his own hands on the invisible wall.  "No, too static.  Even when a wind
elemental stays in one place, it moves, spins."
     "Then I thank the gods it isn't one.  A tornado would do us no good at all,"
Malcorn said.
     "Mmm."  Wolf shifted his attention, feeling for any chink or facet of identity.
A tornado would have been easier to deal with, because it could have been identified.
Perhaps even torn from the control of whoever was guarding this Gate and then turned
against--
     Heat blasted out of the unchanging air.  Both men jumped back, and Wolf cursed
softly, blowing on burned fingers.  "Heat waves," he gasped.  After a moment to get
himself back under full control, he added, "Partly heat waves.  Even that should show
motion--"
     "It isn't the world we know," Malcorn said.  "So it may not follow any of the
rules we know."
     Wolf snorted.  "Going to teach me to suck eggs, boy?  The rules of the world,
no, of course they can't be counted on.  But elementals have their own rules, and
unless the entity causing this has the power of a god, the elements must perform
according to their natures."
     Malcorn took three long paces to the side, then looked back at the wall on a
slant.  "No heat-wave motion," he said.  "Not even a ripple."  He squinted.  "What if
it isn't an elemental, what if it's... a specialized demon of some kind?"
     "That would be... tricky."  The shaman looked at him.  "How can there be
'specialized' demons?"
     "I've heard of some breeding experiments."  Malcorn shrugged.  "The consensus
was that they couldn't possibly succeed, but no one actually knows.  And this might
be such an experiment.  Half demon, half elemental."
     "So what do we do about it?"  Wolf put his hands on his hips and glared at the
invisible wall.  "I can handle an elemental--probably.  A demon, only sometimes."
     "If our opponent is being creative, then we must be also."  Malcorn frowned.  "I
have an idea...."
                      ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     All five of the gladiators had managed at least some degree of light, but they
were finding it harder than they'd expected, and they hadn't expected it to be easy.
Math op Owain repeated his mantra yet again, trying to get past his embarrassment at
a lack-luster performance.  Each of the others *else* was glowing like a lantern, and
he was barely a candle, and a dim one at that.
     "Is it my imagination," Necroma asked, "or am I doing especially poorly here?
Maybe because I studied necromancy--"
     "You're doing great!" Blackwind said.  "It's me that is being a dim--"
     "Ah!"  Young Joan nodded.  "I see it now, each of us can only see outside our
own light--"
     "Like trying to see the backs of our own heads," Redfox broke in.  "We can see
the light from the others, but not our own.  Well, good, I thought I wasn't managing
to do this at all.  Thought I was going to let the rest of you down."
     Math looked toward the advancing shadows, now advancing more slowly.  But they
seemed denser, darker.  They even seemed to have a form of sorts, as though they
were... creatures composed entirely of shadow.  As though they had substance and were
obstacles that the light was flowing around as water flows around rocks.  His hand
tightened on the hilt of his sword, and he forced himself to relax and loosen the
grip; there isn't much you can do if you're gripping so hard your muscles are locked.
     A Shadow on the edge of the pack, it was hard to think of them as anything but
creatures now, rushed forward suddenly, elongating.  Its shape changed from upright
and vaguely man-like to leaping-wolf to a thick spear--aimed at Blackwind, who was on
the left end of the line the gladiators had formed.  The Malcornishman threw himself
down and to the side--to the left, leaving a gap between himself and his companions.
There'd been no other obvious way for him to go, Redfox was too close on his right,
just over arm's length away.  But two more Shadows followed the first, toward that
gap, and the one Blackwind had evaded doubled back on itself, returning to a wolf-
like shape that was mostly gaping jaws and fangs like dark daggers.

Near Vithicar:

     The spell didn't work.  Master Darque resisted the impulse to lash out at the
nearest person, his bodyguard Tyre.  To punish the non-responsible for the failure of
a spell was the mark of a minor magician; he would not stoop to that.  But it should
have worked.  It was such a *basic* scrying spell.  He had been using it for
centuries, he could cast the damned thing in his sleep.  This failure would have
driven a normal man to cursing, but he was always careful about that.  As a half-
demon, his curses had power, and a competent magician did not waste power.  Not
unless he was *really* angry.
     He knew what the problem was, of course.  That idiot down in Kurukar, messing
around with "dark powers."  As if any human could hope to control them!  Without a
heritage like his own, the powers would eat any fool who tried, and the sooner the
better.  Necromancy!  Master Darque's lip curled in a sneer.  It had its uses, he had
done a little in that line himself, but it was ultimately a minor magical art.
Inherently messy, as anything involving human nature would always be.
     He sighed, laid down the wand he had been using, and turned to look at Tyre.
The dwarf was expressionless, pointedly not paying attention to the spell-workings.
"We're going to have to do something about Kurukar," Master Darque said.
     Tyre brightened at the prospect of action.  "Good!  When?"
     "Now."

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     I know it's tourney prepping, but there is still a lot of pleasure in noting
that we had FIFTY-FOUR fights today.  Eleven standbys--they went 3-8.  Eleven
standbys isn't much out of FIFTY-FOUR fights.  Obviously, I can't talk about all the
fights, not when we had FIFTY-FOUR, but I'll mention all the NINETEEN challenges
matchs.  Except for Talahya and Primus, nineteen is a good number for total fights.
Ha!
     One non-challenge I will mention:  NECROMANCER (78-2520) (26-6-1,196) of MAGIC
ARTISTS fought SERB SMASHER (71-1393) (23-17-2,151) of DOGS OF WAR.  NECROMANCER was
overpowered by SERB SMASHER in a 1 minute one-sided duel.  This led to the greatest
movement in the rankings, with Serb going up forty-three, and Necromancer going down
thirty-one.
     Most challenged today was our Champion Gladiator, Javelin, holder of the
Crysaline Helm, who got fourteen challenges.  Ha!  There are arenas on the Isle that
would be glad to have fourteen FIGHTS!
     Common Joe's was most avoided, with Royal Flush doing most of the avoiding.

     For the rest, here are the challenge matches:
     GURU GNU (38-4784) (10-1-0,46) of HILLTOP GURUS challenged CREDIT CARD (5-4052)
(18-7-0,83) of BLOOD SUCKERS.  Up 37.  GURU GNU demolished CREDIT CARD in a 1 minute
uneven Challenge bout.  Not surprising, one would not expect genuine gurus to be in
favor of credit cards.  The ones who encourage you to pay for your meditation classes
with your card are not genuine.  That's how you can tell.
     NUMBSKULL (52-2948) (12-4-2,100) of OTTO'S PARTS challenged D'URVILLE (39-3800)
(22-11-1,101) of KIWI CONNECTION.  Up 1.  NUMBSKULL devastated D'URVILLE in a popular
1 minute one-sided Challenge contest.  One-sided?  D'Urville, what were you THINKING?
     BALLIOL BLACKMOON (81-614) (28-18-0,132) of DRAGONBANE GUILD challenged
ZOOLANDER (39-3523) (26-18-1,128) of WITLESS WONDERS.  Down 4.  BALLIOL BLACKMOON was
beaten by ZOOLANDER in a 3 minute Challenge fight.  That's got to be embarrassing for
Balliol, but then, life is like that.  You win some and you lose some, and often
where least expected.

     KRONOS GRIMHOLT (7-6011) (21-8-1,150) of SENTINELS challenged GERRICK GRIMM (50-
3530) (27-43-1,153) of DRUID'S GROVE.  Up 3.  KRONOS GRIMHOLT beat GERRICK GRIMM in a
2 minute Challenge bout.  Good thing that was a short fight, the grimness quotient of
the arena rose dramatically when these two met.
     SMIRK (39-3606) (32-10-0,143) of CHEAP SHOTS challenged TUNDRA (45-4280) (29-20-
1,145) of ARCTIC WASTES.  Up 2.  SMIRK outwaited TUNDRA in an exciting 15 minute
brutal Challenge fight.  My complete sympathies for Tundra, who had to endure fifteen
minutes of that repellent expression.
     HUNTSMAN (7-5837) (32-14-0,165) of SENTINELS challenged BASE ON BULLS (73-3101)
(30-10-4,179) of THE BULLS.  Up 14.  HUNTSMAN viciously subdued BASE ON BULLS in a
crowd pleasing 3 minute Challenge bout.  Does this mean you'd be better off basing
whatever it is on bears?  Or, for that matter, cows.  Cows give milk, after all.
     TRASH CAN (50-3403) (18-3-3,178) of OPEN SESAME challenged LAPHROAIG (31-4529)
(28-23-0,179) of SINGLE MALTS.  Up 1.  TRASH CAN vanquished LAPHROAIG in an action
packed 2 minute mismatched Challenge bout.  It took two whole minutes to get
Laphroaig canned?  Somebody isn't working very hard here.
     PHILLIP THE BIRD (40-3708) (19-16-1,173) of CRUEL PET NAMES challenged U.S.S.
ARIZONA (34-2643) (39-27-1,173) of D-DAY SQUAD.  Straight across.  PHILLIP THE BIRD
beat U.S.S. ARIZONA in a crowd pleasing 1 minute Challenge conflict.  This is what
happens when you're cruel to your pets, they turn around and make trouble all over
the place.

     BULL DURHAM (5-4324) (35-19-1,194) of PARTY ANIMALS challenged DEVIL'S ADVOCATE
(68-4666) (25-23-1,203) of BLOOD 4 THE MASSES.  Up 9.  BULL DURHAM was handily
defeated by DEVIL'S ADVOCATE in a 3 minute Challenge contest.  Why would someone
advocate a devil?  I've often wondered that.  I grant you, they win fights, which is
good, if you're on the same side, but they tend to have unpleasant habits.
     CUBA (26-3917) (32-12-0,187) of HERE TO PHOENIX challenged YOUNG JOAN (28-3534)
(39-47-1,190) of DODGE BULLETS.  Up 3.  CUBA overpowered YOUNG JOAN in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute one-sided Challenge match.  Looks like bad luck for the
adventurers, does it not?  They may not make it to Phoenix.
     GENERAL PUBLIC (31-3112) (25-21-1,184) of MILITARY MAYHEM challenged GALENA (28-
3505) (27-19-0,188) of BOXOROX.  Up 4.  GENERAL PUBLIC was savagely defeated by
GALENA in a 2 minute Challenge match.  I have occasionally wondered how good a
general the Public actually is.  Perhaps not very?
     THE REFEREE (45-1091) (74-49-4,198) of AVID FANS challenged BLACK FLAG (82-
46046) (43-32-3,203) of TONGUE N CHEEK.  Up 5.  THE REFEREE defeated BLACK FLAG in an
action packed 5 minute gory Challenge duel.  Whoa!  Since when did referees get in on
the fighting?
     LITTLE SIR GRUNGE (25-948) (80-63-4,210) of CRYPTICS challenged MAD CAT (7-2965)
(68-49-6,224) of INSP GADGETS MINIONS.  Up 14.  LITTLE SIR GRUNGE handily defeated
MAD CAT in a 2 minute uneven Challenge melee.  At last, a use for dirt!

     LAND OF FLUSH (11-4373) (28-18-0,196) of CONSORTIUM CRAP challenged THELONIUS
(21-6631) (29-12-1,201) of NOMADIC TRIBE.  Up 5.  LAND OF FLUSH devastated THELONIUS
in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge competition.  And anyone who looks can see that the
Land is now flushed with triumph.
     BODDINGTON'S (21-5035) (25-14-0,199) of REAL BEER challenged AVONSIDE (13-3927)
(42-59-1,204) of KIWI CONNECTION.  Up 5.  BODDINGTON'S was devastated by AVONSIDE in
a 1 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  Other than observing that experience counts,
I'm going to pass on this one.  Not much to work with.
     ROTTEN LIVER (52-2902) (36-16-1,191) of OTTO'S PARTS challenged SKIN PEELER (73-
5716) (30-9-2,193) of BLACKMAIL.  Up 2.  ROTTEN LIVER was defeated by SKIN PEELER in
a crowd pleasing 1 minute Challenge match.  And a good job it was, there is little so
disgusting as a rotten liver.
     RUBBER KNIFE (57-2546) (33-8-2,214) of USELESS TOOLS challenged MOSGIEL (14-
3836) (42-28-2,223) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  Up 9.  RUBBER KNIFE bested MOSGIEL in a
popular 3 minute Challenge contest.  Not so useless.  I used a rubber knife today,
and very handy I found it for spreading sauce on a bun before I added the meat.
     KING FORADAY (47-3762) (60-52-4,227) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged PAT (35-2292)
(51-55-2,227) of COMMON JOE'S.  Straight across.  KING FORADAY handily defeated PAT
in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge match.  When you're a king, you've got the wind at
your back.

For the title:
     Most Challenged JAVELIN (82-33234) (17-5-0,233) of THE WEAPONS challenged BLUE
BLOOD (73-3657) (36-24-1,215) of BLACK & BLUE.  Down a little in points: 18, up in
fights: 38, I don't count any hidden fights.  JAVELIN devastated BLUE BLOOD in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge Title fight.  Our congratulations to Javelin, writer of
columns.

P.S.  By the time we meet here again, the Tourney will have run, but, probably not
the Split.  We shall see.  Stay if you can!

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

We predict the return of the CC.  (Crip's Crap)  What a mess that will be! -- The
Consortium Elders

Skin Peeler -- It can be easily done with a sharp spear, can it not? -- Javelin

Lumbering Waif -- I rose to the occasion.  That is what flying monkeys do. -- Nikko,
Captain Of The Flying Monkeys

Evalon Elkhorn -- I am surely glad you didn't hit me 'cause I'd be shattered into
pieces! -- China Milkmaid

We hope to see lots of Managers participating in the Turf War in DM47.  Good luck. --
The Consortium Folk

Mosgiel -- Drat.  That is not only embarrassing, it could be dangerous to me and
those counting on me!  Oh, well, it was a good sort of fight anyway. -- Young Joan

Devil's Advocate -- You're not supposed to do stuff like that, you know. -- Desperado
P.S.  Isn't there something in the rules for your style that say you shouldn't hit
people?

Laphroaig -- And I like malts, too.  Chocolate malts especially. -- Billy Lilly

Crimson Mist -- Due to the sunrise, no doubt.  Good thing we aren't sailors, eh?
"Red sky at morning, sailor take warning," all that. -- Ghost Dancer

Gisborne -- Ah!  A pleasant surprise.  Despite our disparity in experience, I was
expecting a loss... glad not to meet one. -- Amelia

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
