Ten Little Warlords

Xena: Warrior PrincessJoxer arrives one night at Xena and Gabrielle’s camp with a message for Callisto. It’s supposedly a message from the god of war, asking for her to come to an island. They soon learn that several other warlords have received the same message and are gathering at a nearby village. Xena also notices that Gabrielle’s behavior has changed, and that of the villagers as well. The people who are normally even tempered, seem to fly into rages fairly easily. They find Ares in a tavern, drunk. He tells Xena that someone stole his sword and with it his powers. That’s the reason all of these people are hostile. The deposed god asks Xena to help him to recover his sword. Xena realizes that it’s the only way she can get Gabrielle and the others to return to normal. She and Ares travel to an island with the other warriors. They discover that Sisyphus is the one who stole the sword. He tells the group that the one who kills the monster, Brakus, will be the next god of war.

The Xena Scrolls

Xena: Warrior PrincessIn 1940’s Macedonia, Dr. Janice Covington, an archeologist, is looking for the Xena Scrolls. After finding a telegram that Dr. Covington sent to her father, Melinda Pappas arrives at her dig to help with the translation of the scrolls. A rival archeologist, Dr. John Smythe, sends some men to their camp to take anything that Janice and her crew have found. But she runs them off before they get the chance. A Lieutenant Jacques from French Intelligence is also snooping around. He tells Covington that he was sent to help her. Smythe appears at the camp with a tablet that could be the key to opening up the tomb that Janice has uncovered. He forces Janice to open it at gunpoint. As they enter the tomb, the stairwell colapses. Janice, Mel, and Jacques are seperated from Smythe and his men. Mel translates the writing that is on the walls as saying that they are in the tomb of Ares. The trio soon discover the hidden scrolls, and with them is half of Xena’s chakram. Janice tries to remove it from the stone that it is imbedded in but is unsuccessful. Mel, however, easily extracts the broken weapon. Once it’s in her hand, it seems to pull Mel toward something. She encounters Smythe and his men. Smythe has found the other half of the chakram.

The Quest

Xena: Warrior PrincessKeeping with her promise she made to Xena, Gabrielle is taking the warrior’s body back home to Amphipolis. Along the way she is met by bounty hunters. They want to take Xena’s body as proof that she is dead to the warlord that has hired them. But Gabrielle fights them, with help from Iolaus who has just appeared. As Gabrielle continues her journey, she is met by Ephiny and a group of Amazons. Her friend convinces the bard to bring Xena’s body back to the Amazon village for them to honor her with a funeral. Ephiny also tells her about Velasca, Melosa’s adopted daughter. Velasca challanged Melosa for the right to be queen of the Amazons and won. She wants the Amazons to resume their war with the Centaurs. But Gabrielle can stop her since she took the rite of caste and became an Amazon princess. After thinking it through, the bard agrees to become the next queen of the Amazon nation. Not far away, Autolycus steals the dagger of Helios. Soon after he begans to hear Xena’s voice.

One Against An Army

Xena: Warrior PrincessXena and Gabrielle stop by a stream to treat the bard’s sprained ankle when a young man, Phiddipides, appears. He says that he just ran from Marathon where combined forces of Greeks and Spartans were unable to defend against a foreign invasion. From the description he gives, Xena realizes that it’s the Persian Army. The warrior sends Phiddipides on to meet the Athenian Army, while she and Gabrielle find a way to divert the Persians.

As the two women are discussing the plans, another man appears wearing a Spartan uniform. Dorian tells them that he was injured and ran from the battle. He agrees to help them. Persian scouts appear, and Xena sends Gabrielle away to safety. When the bard realizes that Dorian is just standing and watching, she turns back to convince him to take cover. But before they can get very far, Gabrielle is struck in the back with an arrow.
