South of Andor:

     Outcast Orchid looked at her companion.  He had given his name as though it
should mean something to her, but she'd never heard of him.  "Herlas of Zensu?"
     "Yes, to my shame, I am."
     She shook her head.  "That doesn't mean a thing to me, but I can tell you that
as far as I'm concerned, saving my life makes up for a lot."  She looked ahead.  The
farm track they were following wandered into a field and stopped.  "Where do we go
from here?  How long before we can get back on the main roads?  I don't like being
lost."
     "We aren't lost," Herlas said.  "I know where we are, and how to get to Fratsfa
from here--if the Chaos monsters haven't gotten there ahead of us."  He guided her to
the left, into an overgrown woodlot.  "If they have... no reason to go there at all.
Or not to, of course."
     "Well, at least you aren't suggesting that we flee Andoria to escape the
monsters--"
     "What would be the point?  Once they've conquered Andoria, which is their goal,
I think, they will go on to the rest of Alastari, and from there the rest of Ghea."
     "Lady Greywand might have something to say about that."
     "Or she might not.  She's insane, after all."
     The woodlot was small, and on the other side of it was another overgrown track.
     "How can you say that?" Orchid demanded, pulling a twig from her hair.
     "Based on the available evidence," Herlas answered quietly, "but let's not go
into that now."  He gestured slightly, indicating something ahead of them.  "We're
about to have trouble."
     Orchid looked.  One of the monsters was waiting in the middle of the field.  She
drew her sword, unwilling to give up without a fight.  A limb of the thing
transformed into a sort of blade in response.  She foresaw difficulty with an
opponent who could change forms at will.
     Beside her, heat and flickering lights and a smell of ozone as her companion
cast a spell.  Herlas said, "I think I can hold it to one shape, but be quick."
     She nodded and danced forward, her sword beginning to trace the dangerous
patterns of her style.  Sunlight flared along the edge of the blade, clean as
morning, and the monster shied back.  She whirled past it, moving constantly without
pause, slicing and dicing methodically.  Ichor flowed thickly.
     It made a sound.  Why should a Chaos monster that looked a little bit like a
person on a horse make a sound like wind chimes and sea gulls?  Well, why not, it was
chaos, right?  Anything goes, that's what chaos was all about.  Except that she got
the feeling it was upset.  Good!  It should BE upset.  Coming here and trying to take
over HER world--the very idea!  She spun back twoard it, she had a second sword now
in her other hand, didn't know where she'd gotten it, but that didn't matter.  She
hit it like a veritable wall of blades, and every gobbet of flesh she hacked off
burst into flames before it could hit the ground and was destroyed.
     Destroyed utterly.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, if I've got to clean a stable, I suppose one that hasn't been used much is
better than a busy one.  But a busy one's more fun.
     Raging Bull, you need to work on that temper.  It is NOT your friend in the
arena.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ARUAK CITY.  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 4-0-0.  Keep it up, ANIMAL FARM!  MVP 
award for TOM SAWYER?  IMMORTALS' proud of him after beating GREEN THUMB and getting 
16 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  HOUND got smashed by DRAYTON FLASHSTONE, 
and lost 8 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all 
ARUAK CITY.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Like, PUP TENT 
must be pretty gutsy!  It challenged the Duelmaster from KRILL CAVALRY.  Does this 
beast have a death wish or what!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's 
habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome PUP TENT.  Aren't BULLDOGS proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was 
the wiseguy that said ARUAK CITY's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory 
Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of IMMORTALS must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys 
know something that I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why ANIMAL FARM's been 
avoiding IMMORTALS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  For sure, I was 
holding my breath when I found out CAUTIONARY ORC challenged TIRLA DANCER.  After 
all, haven't IMMORTALS and KRILL CAVALRY had a long standing duel in ARUAK CITY?  It 
wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but TIRLA DANCER wants me to write about it 
since she subdued CAUTIONARY ORC.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ARUAK CITY is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
