     Larkin took a deep breath and squared his shoulders.  Changes always required
effort, even sacrifice when the changes were large ones.  Even when the changes were,
or he hoped they were, for the best.  He took one more deep breath and walked up to
the doors of the Red Sands, the oldest tavern in Lirin Kiv.
     The doors were beautifully carved of several different woods, and he paused,
remembering the beginning of the tavern.  First a plank table under a tree outside an
armor-smith's forge.  Then a tent.  And now this polished and beautiful building.
The armor maker still had a forge next door, though.
     The chief bartender, Kalloran O'Vaunsas, looked at him and frowned.  "I've heard
a rumor," he said.  "About Free Blades, and Debby Tonte, and--"
     Larkin nodded.  "Nothing is final till it happens, but as matters stand now,
it's merge with Free Blades or close the arena."
     "Well, damn."
     "Yeah.  Way it goes, sometimes."  Larkin took another deep breath, then coughed
at the strong odors of wine and beer, and smoke from the grill.  "Do you know how to
make drinks with umbrellas in them?"

                       Reflections by the Champion of the Horn

     Draco, that was a good try, and I salute you for it.  It is my hope that the
next cycle or two will see both Talon Warsmith and myself retiring or moving out to
some other arena, giving you and other up-and-coming young warriors a chance at the
Horn.  That would be more meaningful than having the top spot monopolized by we who
have been fighting far too long.
     May the variable factors align themselves in your favor.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out LIRIN KIV to 
see what's new.  MVP award for CYLADIA?  SKAITHVARN's proud of her after beating 
UHLEK and getting 35 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  TOM RIDDLE's match with 
CORT NIGHTJEWEL cost him a loss of 15 points!  Was that a tear I saw in ZALMARDARIN's 
eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't KHORA THE SMALL fit to be tied!  Who 
was the wiseguy that said LIRIN KIV's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  SCARLET 
KNIGHTS was LIRIN KIV's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there 
some deep dark secret why SLYTHERIN HOUSE's been avoiding SCARLET KNIGHTS so much?  
Or is it just that they're too scared?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  LIRIN KIV is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Nightfall -- Did you know that Li Dan classes you as a "fossil"?  Because you have
more than a hundred each wins and losses, apparently.  He thinks you should retire.
(wincing)  So do I!  No, seriously, not bad, as fights go.  (which isn't saying much)
-- Darlina

Cort Nightjewel -- You've been staying up too late on the nights before the fights.
Not that *I* mind. -- Tairikia

The Quickling -- Another dwarf.  (sigh)  I once tried to cut a dwarf's head off, or
even just cut his throat (he was trying to mug me at the time), and I simply couldn't
get through the beard.  That's why you wear 'em, isn't it? -- Damoreth Stenn

How odd!  I didn't realize that the Imprisoned Spy is a female golem.  Makes you
wonder what she might be (have been?) spying on, and how she gets/got her
information, doesn't it? -- Toryn tyl Dageda

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!

Amendment for "Fratsfas Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
