West of Fratsfa:

     "Now what?" Elosjon asked.
     "Now we make a plan," Fandil said.  "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?"  Elsojon 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."
     The young mage took a deep breath, rubbed his suddenly-sweating hands down his
robe, and nodded.  "Okay."
     Fandil leaned closer to him, dropping his voice to a near whisper, and began to
describe spells.
                         *****   ***   *****   ***   *****
     Elosjon blinked, wondering where the day had gone.  How could it be evening
already?  Or maybe it was evening of the next day, or even two or three days later--
he felt stuffed with arcane knowledge, and it might have taken a long time to pour
all that into him.  He was afraid to move suddenly lest all that magic slosh around
and confuse the spells.  Or spill out uncontrolled.  He couldn't say he'd LEARNED
them, but he was full of them as a bottle might be full of wine.  He understood
Fandil's warnings now.  He would rather carry live coals in his bare hands than the
spells now lodged in his mind.  Still, it was his job to do.  Fandil, a mage with a
towering reputation, was trusting him to do it.
     He looked at Fandil, sitting beside him.  "Now what?"
     "Now we sleep, because darkness favors our Enemy, and we cannot give him that
advantage.  And because we need sleep if we are to be at our best."


     The portal was just a portal and presented no bar to their passage.  Sizzling
Sunflower blinked around at the run-down section of the city to which they had
returned.  It seemed unexpectedly ordinary.  Orderly, despite the litter.  The
buildings were all... square, or at least rectangular, all stone-colored, or brick.
The people all human.  She shook her head.  "I hadn't realized that things were so
conservative," she muttered.
     "Predictable," Lenpro agreed.  "Just as well.  Humans were not meant to live in
     "There were people back there--"  She turned back toward the portal, but there
was nothing to see now.  Just a street, cracked pavement, grubby house-fronts,
drooping trees.
     "People," the manager admitted, "but not humans.  And I would guess not for
long.  That pocket universe is inherently unstable.  But it may not be the only one
of its kind, and I can't believe that it's good for our universe to have those
clustered on it like leeches, so we'd better find my brother and tell him about it.
Fandil will know what to do with a magical problem of that kind."
     "I guess.  But it was an interesting place to visit, if you don't have to live
there."  She started along the street in what she figured was a westerly direction,
toward the better part of the city.  After a moment, she added, "There was a mob here
when we went in.  I kind of thought they'd wait."
     Lenpro glanced up at the sky.  "It's late morning now, and we went through the
portal in the afternoon.  So it's been nearly a day, at the least.  Most mobs don't 
have that much patience."
     "That long?  It didn't seem more than an hour or two that we were in there!"
     "Some day when you have a week to spare, ask Fandil to explain 'temporal
discontinuity' and 'meta-subjective time' to you.  We're probably lucky--I hope we're
lucky--we didn't get back BEFORE we left."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ARUAK CITY!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, COLORIFIC.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with RAGING 
BULL?  He actually beat ARUAK CITY's KHALHUMS DWARF, and walked away with 16 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at KRILL CAVALRY while they watched IRVIN 
FLETE clobber BLACK BEE.  He lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  Try as he might, STABLEBOY wasn't good enough at persuading PUP TENT to 
step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, IMMORTALS!  
In my day, no team with a 946-1083-75 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
BULLDOGS?  What do people see in TOM SAWYER?  His 15-17-2?  IMMORTALS ain't talkin', 
but he's got 92 points.  YELLOW FEVER of COLORIFIC knows how to pick 'em.  It 
challenged TOM SAWYER of IMMORTALS who is up by 25.  Now was this a wise move?  
YELLOW FEVER perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it bested TOM SAWYER and ended 
up with 109 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ARUAK CITY is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen
