Zorpunt:

     Fandil stood on one of the town's three intact wharfs and watched the waves of
the Trier lap around the heap of stones that had been Khaldren's Tower.  Most of the
soot had been washed off by the rains of the spring, but it was still an impressive
scene of destruction.
     A small boat eased up to the wharf, and a lean figure jumped across from the
deck.  "Glad you could meet me here," Lenpro said.
     Fandil raised an eyebrow.  "You said it was important."
     Lenpro nodded.  "But there's a lot of important trouble around right now."
     "This is trouble, then?"
     "Of course!  I sent Sedalia to the Isle to talk to the king--"
     "I'd heard that," Fandil agreed.  "What's the word?"
     "That's the problem.  There is no word, no message at all, and there should be."
     Fandil reviewed the map of Alastari in his mind.  "Three or four days each way,
and with the roads this muddy, maybe longer," he said.  "And it might've taken him a
couple of days to get an audience--"
     Lenpro gave him an impatient look.  "You're forgetting the pigeons."
     Fandil hoped his beard would hide his blush.  He had indeed forgotten the
pigeons.  The Consortium maintained a homing pigeon loft near the mainland end of the
ferry to the Isle.  Messages, if brief, didn't have to wait on travel time.
     "Sedalia sent a pigeon just before he boarded the ferry," Lenpro said.  "It
arrived eight days ago.  Since then, nothing.  Eight days."
     "Ah.  You're correct, there should have been a message, even if only to say
nothing was moving forward."  He turned to look around the waterfront.  There was
nobody near, but sound carried over water, and it was as well to remember that,
sanctioned or not, the king of Andoria had a whole guild of spies and assassins at
his service.
     Lenpro snorted.  "I believe that the time for keeping a low profile is past,
Fandil.  Something is wrong... with the king.  There will be no sweeping this under
the rug."
     "And there's no need to start rumors flying too quickly," Fandil countered.  "We
need more information first--"
     "That," Lenpro growled, "is why Sedalia went to the Isle in the first place!"
     "There are other avenues to pursue," Fandil said, "and they can be done here--at
least, here as in, not on the Isle.  But they are not going to be talked about here,
on this wharf.  That'd be asking for trouble."

On the Isle of the Eye:

     Lord Protector Senator Sedalia looked at the cart with distaste.  It was not
new, though it seemed sturdy enough.  But the main objection was that it had been
used to haul fish from Willow Beach, where Darkholm was located, up to Talahya, and 
it smelled like it.  Still, he glanced down at his clothing which was... extremely
utilitarian, it wasn't like his attire would suffer from contact with it.  And at
least the ride would be brief; the road went through Lirin Kiv on its way to Willow
Beach.  Four miles, maybe five.
     "I can't believe there's no other way to get out of Talahya," he muttered,
climbing in beside Gissanniah.
     "We're not out yet," she said.  "I can't believe THIS way will work, until we're
clear of the last ring of watchers."  She pulled the tarp up to cover both of them.
"I can't believe someone is going to this much trouble just to keep us from reporting
that we didn't get in to see the king."
     "In itself, that is revealing," Sedalia said.  His voice was muffled by the
tarp.  "Presumably our failure to see the king would provoke questions that someone
really, really doesn't want to answer."
     "Quiet," the driver said.  "I could be stopped any time.  Don't provoke 'em to
search the wagon."

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Chief Sitting Bull, in his DM Column, wanted me to comment for him about the
fine new teams coming into Aruak City.  Look at Coffee Rules at 7-2-0!  Great!  And
Techno 8 at 14-6-2? Wow!
     It is terrific to see the influx of fine managers and teams.  Aruak City, The
Heart And Soul of Andoria is honored to have you present.
     While you are at it, bring in your friends.  The more the merrier and the more
pleasure for all!  Health.  Humility.  Honor.
     I would also like to take this time to thank the many many Bulldogs of all ages
for helping this team reach 1000 wins.  It is a goal that was long ago set.  We are
proud to be here to do it.  This makes two teams in one arena for The Consortium with
1000 wins.  A salute also to our friends and critters of Animal Farm.  May we all
make it to 2000!
          Be well.
          Kennelworth, Bulldog Manager & Consortium Elder

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ARUAK CITY a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  Now keep the taverns open 
late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for NEVERWAKE, whose 0-0-0 this turn 
dropped them by 8 into 14th.  SHI-ALOOD stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-1 into a 
6 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 7th place.  Good work, guys!  
And let's see, TRIPPER fought PANGOLIN and gained 27 points and contributed to TECHNO 
8's 2-3-0.  PANGOLIN has lost to TRIPPER, falling 23 points, while helping make 
SHI-ALOOD a 3-2-1 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between WALK THE LINE and 
our Duelmaster CHIEF SITTING BULL, making a challenge.  Defending his title for 
another turn, CHIEF SITTING BULL kept ELFQUEST's warrior, WALK THE LINE, from 
claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the DEADMAN'S HAND stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ARUAK CITY, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding DEADMAN'S HAND more than any other team we find BULLDOGS.  ARUAK CITY, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior 
this turn was HELL'S BELLES' warrior CAT RIO.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, CAT RIO from HELL'S BELLES challenged 
up 23 points to fight BARK from the BULLDOGS stable.  CAT RIO perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he lost to BARK and ended up with 44 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Whatever bright future TWINK may have had, it's all history now.  The 
manager of TECHNO 8 has lost a promising 3-1-1 warrior.  Kudos go out to WISDOM this 
turn, for revenging DAMOONS 2's bloodfeud against IMMORTALS' warrior DIN WHITEBLADE.  
Well done.  Congratulations go out to TARSUS DOLPHINS, with CORTEZ III revenging a 
bloodfeud against TOM SAWYER of IMMORTALS.  A brave warrior does not carry a red 
shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, ARUAK CITY, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet 
again, keep your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in 
ARUAK CITY again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
