West of Fratsfa:

     Elosjon hesitated, on the brink of rushing forward, and looked at Fandil.  "I'm
willing to do..." he swallowed, "anything to stop the--"  He swallowed again.  "Even
dying, if that will prevent someone from loosing Chaos Magic here."
     Fandil nodded.  "I expected no less from you."
     Elosjon wasn't sure if that was good or bad.  Did it mean the old mage thought
him noble-spirited, or a fool, or both, or...?
     "But rushing forward blindly will not defeat this enemy.  We must plan a
little."  He squinted up at the looming castle again.  "Though we may have little
time for it.  If the magician is at all alert, he will have noticed us, and even if
he has not, his watchdog will."
     The demonic watchdog.  Elosjon shivered and glanced around quickly.  Would they
smell it when the monster approached, or had they gotten used to smelling the sulfur
now and wouldn't notice until it was too late?  "Maybe we should get out of sight,"
he suggested.
     Fandil shrugged and looked up at the sky.  "I suppose we might as well; it looks
like rain.  But it won't make any difference to our enemy--he will see us wherever we
are once we extend our powers."  He turned and moved toward the trees that grew along
the base of the near-vertical slope.
     "Not into the town?"
     "There is no security for us in the watchdog's lair."
     "Oh... right."  Elosjon hurried to keep up with his mentor, panting.  It was
disconcerting sometimes that the old man could move so quickly and keep going for so
long.  He himself, though young enough to be at least Fandil's grandson and maybe
great-grandson, was exhausted, and he was too tired to care who knew it.
     How could the trees be that far away?  Were they ever going to reach them?  No,
no, that was just tiredness.  Elosjon sneaked a look at the sky, where the clouds
were getting blacker and lower.  And tripped, almost going down flat except that
Fandil caught him and dragged him onward.  Into shelter just as the rain began to
come down.  Elosjon was breathing hard, he had a pain in his side, and sweat was
running down his face and body; he wrapped his arms around a tree in order to stay
upright.  If this was the kind of thing that senior mages had to be ready for, then
he needed a lot more training.
     Elosjon raised his head away from the tree to look at Fandil.  The old mage was
watching the rain coming down and seemed pleased by it.  "Why?"
     "There are dangerous creatures that like being out in rain storms," Fandil said,
"but they aren't sulfur-smelling demonic watchdogs.  One thing we don't have to worry
about.  Of course, our Enemy may have some wet-weather watchdog, too!"
     Elosjon groaned.  "I don't want to know."  Fandil laughed at that, actually
laughed!  If it didn't take so much energy, the young man would have considered that
insulting.  No, of course not.  Fandil wouldn't insult him.  He pulled himself
together.  "Now what?"
     "Now we make a plan.  I suppose you don't know anything about the castle, or any
more about the magician there except that he's probably the son of the last lord of
Mountain Home and went somewhere far away to study?"
     Elosjon shook his head.
     "Not a problem, we can work with what we've got already," Fandil said, patting
his shoulder.  "And really, the hint of Chaos Magic is enough."  The old mage's face
set grimly and suddenly looked a lot older than seemed possible.  "He's been studying
Folstrom materials, even if he didn't find the Folstrom themselves to study with."
     Folstrom!  Elosjon shuddered.  The Folstrom, who had nearly destroyed Alastari
once--with Chaos Magic--were the monsters who lurked at the back of every
Alastarian's mind, the ultimate image of evil and depravity, never to be forgiven.
How could anyone seek out their learning?  He asked the question aloud.
     "Some people would go into the very heart of wickedness in search of power, and
vengeance is a strong motive, too," Fandil said.  He sighed and sat down on a tree
root.  "He will not be easy to defeat, but we have learned a few things since the
Folstrom were driven away.  Sit down, boy, so I don't have to strain my neck talking
to you.  I am going to tell you spells that you will never, on pain of worse than
death, repeat, nor even use if it isn't the most desperate last chance."
     "Why?"  Elosjon slid down to sit beside him.  "Why keep them secret, why not use
them, why tell me at all?"
     "Because these spells are as dangerous in their way as Chaos Magic, because
there is a good chance that using them will destroy you, and because someone has to
know them and be ready to use them as the final reserve.  This is a battle to death
and beyond, young man, and we must make what preparations we can."


     Outcast Orchid got her companion out of the city mostly by dragging him along.
He kept protesting that he wasn't worth her efforts and could buy her time to escape
with his life, but she didn't listen.  Men and their Heroic Gestures!  It was clear
that whatever this fellow had done in the past, he had a good heart.  He'd saved her
before she even realized she was in danger, and Orchid was honest enough to admit
that left to herself, she might not have gotten away from the parade route in time.
Furthermore, if he had been involved with setting up this false king at the
beginning, then he knew stuff that might help defeat the usurpers.  Lady Fern would
know what questions to ask him.
     Orchid didn't relax until they were past the outer circle of estates around
Andor.  It was too bad the city didn't have a wall, that made it so much easier to
tell when you were away from it.  Here, even though there were no more mansions, the
roadside was peppered with smaller houses and big vegetable gardens and orchards
and....  She shook her head.  So maybe they were clear of the city and maybe they
weren't.  Would the people in charge of the palace and the government be watching the
     Drumming hooves behind them.  Orchid had a guilty feeling that she had almost
summoned them by just thinking about--
     Her companion seized her arm and dragged her off the road and through the ditch
beside it, pulling her down behind a bank of reeds.  She did not need his sign to
keep silent.
     Half a dozen horsemen in the palace livery.  One looked like a nobleman, one a
clerk with a bundle of scrolls clutched against his chest and an uneasy seat on his
mount.  The other four were soldiers, no mistaking that.
     When the horsemen were out of sight, Orchid began to get up.  It was wet in the
ditch, and not exactly warm, and there were mosquitoes or something.
     Her companion shook his head and pulled her back down, gesturing toward the city
again.  Puzzled, she looked along the road, saw nothing, and then back at him.  He
gestured for her to wait.  She sighed (quietly) and waited.  Five minutes.  Ten.  A
vague sort of sound, not hoofbeats or anything so definite, but coming from the city
along the road.
     Presently something came into sight.  At first glance it might be taken for a
man on a horse, but it wasn't a man and it wasn't a horse.  Orchid groped for
concepts that would allow her to see it, but the thing was so alien that her eyes
kept sliding away.  She couldn't call it anything but a monster, and knew the word
was inadequate.  And that if she had stood earlier when she'd wanted to, it would
have seen her.  And... eaten her or whatever things like that did.
     It made snuffling sounds.  Could it smell them in the ditch?  She risked a
glance at her companion.  He was tense but not alarmed.  Maybe it wouldn't smell
them, then.
     It passed out of sight to the south in the wake of the earlier group.
     "I know back roads," her companion whispered in her ear.  "I think we will be
safe if we take them.  No telling how many more patrols will come along here."
     Orchid nodded.  Her neck felt stiff.  "What was... that?"
     He shrugged.  "Who knows?  Some kind of Chaos creature."  He paused for a
moment, and she saw that he was blushing.  "I guess you might as well know my name.
I'm Herlas, originally from Zensu.  Magician."
     She caught his hand and shook it.  "Outcast Orchid, gladiator from Fratsfa.  Now
let's go."


     There were people standing around the portal, Sizzling Sunflower supposed they
could be called guards, though they weren't very militant looking.
     Beside her, Lenpro said, "Armed but not alert--they won't be able to stop us
except by the freakiest chance.  Straight on through, girl, and no hesitation."
     "What if we get separated?"
     "You keep going."
     "You keep going, girl."
     "Knowledge of this place, this pocket dimension, is this going to make a big
difference back in the real world?"
     "By itself, probably not.  But that it could exist at all, yes, that's
important.  I don't know what it means--that'll be for my brother Fandil to figure
out--but I know it's important."
     "So we have to get out and tell him.  Okay."  She touched her sword and looked
at the people around the Gate.  Three mancats, two others more ordinary looking.
"Not a problem."

        + ]H[ + ---:--- + ]H[ The Andorian Succession #36 ]H[ + ---:--- + ]H[ +


     Sizzling Sunflower had said that the obstacles on the way back to the true
Fratsfa, three mancats and two more ordinary men, would not be a problem and she
meant it.  After all, she was a skilled gladiator, a Lady Protector, and she had just
defeated the champion of this place, the vampire.  She was confident of her prowess,
and by the way they moved, she could see that her opponents were also confident--of
HER prowess.
     She smiled and moved into the attack, her blade flickering in diffused light of
this place.  Five opponents at once, well, she wasn't alone, either, and though
Lenpro was, from her point of view, old, she knew he was resolute and suspected that
he had considerable skill himself.  They could handle this.
     Her target was the group of mancats, Aruaki, probably, who had been frozen in
mid-change.  She judged them to be the most dangerous, and she was, after all, the
Lady Protector.  They seemed nervous, not at all eager to close with her, which
showed more intelligence than she'd expected of them.  Not that it would do them any
     She grinned and leaped forward suddenly, right into the nearest one.  There was
a bright flash, almost blinding, but she didn't need to see to recognize the feeling
of her blade driving into flesh and bone.  She wrenched it free, blinking away after-
images, and pivoted toward where the next-closest had been.
     He wasn't there!  As her vision cleared, she saw that he was backing away, and
the other had frankly turned and run.  Well, she was going to get at least ONE more!
She bared her teeth in a snarl and stalked after the one still present and on his
feet.  Saw his eyes widen in true fear as he backed faster, apparently afraid to turn
his back on her.  He was blinking and squinting, too, and there was something wrong
with his shadow.
     "Sunflower!  Let him go--the portal is clear--"
     She did a little blinking of her own, shook her head but the voice didn't go
away.  Remembered finally that she had a partner here, and glanced around.
     Lenpro had both his men down, one was dead, she couldn't tell about the other.
He was squinting at her.
     "Let that creature go," he said.  "We have more important things to do.  Ah, you
might sheathe your sword...."
     She looked down at the blade in her hand and realized that it was hot gold,
bright as sunlight.  Reluctantly, it seemed a shame to hide that glorious light, she
slid it into the scabbard.  The world here seemed a lot darker after she did.  Would
it still blaze with sunlight in the ordinary world?  Perhaps not, but there was only
one way to find out.  She squared her shoulders and faced the portal.  "Let's go,"
she said.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause 
for celebration, according to SMITHSONIAN.  Say what you will about blind luck and 
dirty fighting, but Z GLADIATORZ will tell you 157-78-0 is nothing to laugh at...  Z 
GLADIATORZ had cause to celebrate, after ZEPHYR got 13 points by beating STRAY 
CATMAN.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 8 points to ALAMO.  (Discrete enough, MEADE?) KERBIN NOTTS found out that 
ARKERS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of HEAVEN'S SHADOW, alone and unchallenged.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, Z GLADIATORZ scurried away from HEAVEN'S 
SHADOW.  Oh, the shame!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ARKERS?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Me Zork.  Get Rudi.  Him run. -- Zork

Kerbin -- I challenged.  I lost.  Perhaps I should go zither.  Or hither? -- Zither
(missing a note)

A salute to Duelmaster Consternation. -- The Z Man

Downtime -- Get rid of Amazonia and Realm 10!  (Our advice is free.) -- The Z Man

Norm -- Yes, we are complicated and stunning!  (chuckling) -- Zither

Korn -- It was a mere skirmish.  Not D-Day.  But every win counts. -- D.D. Eisenhower

Esau Hardgrave -- The indian thinks thanks for the challenge.  All he can personally
say in G E R O N I M O! -- Curator

Congratulations to DM Consternation.  He is a very determined winner. -- Curator

Altar Boys!  Top point Team!  Way to go! -- Curator

Downtime -- You did not sound like an idiot.  That is a good question (How do I
figure certain warrior stats favorite weapon and favorite rhythms?) and one that many
of us used to ponder in the old days of no Internet and no developed charts.  (And
partly still ponder.)  One can only guess at faves from the warrior's performance.
Upon graduation, one does receive notification of the warrior's favorite weapon,
rhythm, and favorite skills to learn/use.  We try to determine the favorite weapon by
keeping track of swings, hits, "critical hits" and "extra value" hits.  For bonuses
to skills or certain physicals on design, it is really, really a good idea to have
access to the data bases on Terrablood.  This info is valuable, but not always so
necessary to a winning performance.  The best way to learm is by trial and error.
(We are still learning thousands of fights later.) -- Curator

Motor Head -- You have the strangest looking head I've ever seen.  All those things
moving up and down and back and forth... weird. -- Hanna Keene
P.S.  Kinda, hmm, "right," in a way, that you come in after Metallica and avenge him.

Consternation -- I feel that often.  Especially in the arena. -- Indior Landis

Zither -- What can I say?  I'm just not musically inclined. -- Kerbin Notts

One Bad Pig -- Bad pig, bad!  Who told you to be a golem, anyway? -- Norm Quesha

Salvia -- Huh, I like sage in my sausage, but I don't like being made INTO sausage by
the sage! -- Kotter Nahl
