Iaye:

     Lenpro scanned the front page of the Andorian Star quickly and frowned.  On his
lean and hawk-like face, the expression was intimidating.  "I did not think it was a
good idea to allow that gadfly from the Star an interview," he said.
     Senator Sedalia, not one to be intimidated, shook his head.  "He struck just the
right note," the Lord Protector argued.  "Concern but not suspicion or alarm--yet.
After all, there may be a reasonable explanation for the king's failure to act.  We
have given them an opening to make that explanation."  He leaned back in his chair
and propped his heels on footstool.  Nowhere but at the Lenpro guildhouse was there a
chair so perfectly suited to him, and he intended to enjoy it while he could.  All
too soon, he would be headed back for Andor and the Royal Palace.  The rain drumming
on the roof did not make that an enticing prospect.  Memory of the shiftyeyed clerks
and minor ministers he'd met on the last trip was also depressing.
     "That insolent puppy of a reporter even quoted me!" Lenpro growled.
     Sedalia picked up his own copy of the tabloid and scanned the short article
quickly.

Iaye:
     In an interview yesterday, Senator Sedalia stated that he had gone to Andor with
the intention of requesting the King's aid for the coastal areas battered by the
dramatic and tempestuous waves resulting from the sinking of Krael.
     "I and my colleagues felt that the devastation along the coast is properly a
matter for the King's attention," the senator and lord protector said.  "We did not
go seeking a hand-out, but only a helping hand."
     A spokesman at the Royal Palace, who declined to identify himself when queried
on Sedalia's visit, said that the matter had been "taken under advisement."  No
further development of this position could be obtained in Andor.
     Senator Sedalia's manager, Lenpro of Iaye, told this reporter that, "We will
pursue this matter."
     Anyone with information that might be of assistance is invited to communicate
with the Andorian Star office.

     "There is such a thing as bad publicity," the senator acknowledged, "even though
some people claim otherwise.  But this is not it.  Concerned and firm.  All cats are
still in their bags."
     Lenpro snorted laughter.  "Have you ever tried to bag a cat and keep it there?
Word that we're up to something will be all over northwestern Alastari faster than
horses can gallop."
     "I've often thought carrier pigeons should be roasted and eaten," Sedalia
agreed.  "Besides, those rumors will work in our favor.  Anyone who even thinks they
know something will be getting in touch."
     "Tchh!"  Lenpro stood suddenly.  "Are you so much of a fool, Sedalia?  The
Assassins' Guild has been dissolved--officially.  But it has long been an arm of the
King of Andoria, and I do not believe that he--or whoever is behind him--has
dispensed with it now."
     "As a Lord Protector--" Sedalia began.
     "--You are subject to the whims of the Grey Witch," Lenpro finished.  "There is
a strong possibility that she is involved in this business.  Do you think that a Lord
Protector assassinated for prying into her business would be resurrected by her
magicians?"
     Sedalia shifted uncomfortably.  As a politician, conspiracy theories came
naturally to him, but to involve the premier magician in Alastari with one did
seem... risky.  "There are powerful magicians who aren't on her payroll," he said.
"Fandil of Ardivent, Lady Adeolar of Aruak City, Master Cho--plenty of them.  And,"
now Sedalia stood, as well, "I have been involved in politics for a lifetime and
survived it.  I am no easy target for an assassin."
     Lenpro was silent for several minutes, staring past his gladiator at the rain-
curtained window.  Finally he sighed.  "The time for caution and second thoughts has
passed," he admitted.  "We have already begun, and the blades will fall where they
may.  Be careful."

     Senator Sedalia stood at the ferry boat's rail and waited for the mists ahead to
clear.  It was always like this when one approached the Isle of the Eye:  a bit of
mist over the water when you left the mainland, and then, faster than seemed
reasonable, you were sailing through a dense fog.  He had never really understood how
the ferry master kept a straight course through it--or if he did.  And then, the fog
thinning to mist and fading away until--
     "The Isle of the Eye," he said, waving his hand.
     Beside him, Gissanniah was silent for several minutes.  Finally she said, "I
hadn't expected it to be so... gray."
     Sedalia blinked and looked again.  He had seen the Isle before several times,
and he realized that he not really looked at it since the first time.  Though the
mist had cleared, the sky overhead was cloudy.  What light got through was, indeed,
gray.  And Talahya, THE city on the Isle (only Free Blades in Lirin Kiv and Darkholm
in Willow Beach were located elsewhere than in Talahya), was, at best, "picturesque."
It was too crowded to be beautiful now, if it ever had been.  Crowded with gladiators
who had, the senator knew, many virtues which did not include civic housekeeping.
The city was crowded, dirty, and on the waterfront run-down.  Under this leaden
sky... he glanced sideways at his young companion and tried to imagine what it was
like to see Talahya for the first time in this gloomy light.  Not inspiring, that
much was clear.  "It's better when the sun shines," he offered.
     Gissanniah shrugged.  "I guess.  Not that it really matters.  It isn't like I'm
going to be STAYING here.  We just want to talk to the king and then go home.  But
what I do NOT understand is why HE stays here."
     "No more do I," Sedalia said.  "The business of the Isle is dueling and nothing
else.  That the king should visit an arena occasionally is one thing.  But to take up
residence here?  The king's business is to govern the Andorian League, and every day
spent on the Isle is a day he's not doing his job.  And he's been here now for...
years.  I don't even know how long!"  The senator's mouth set in grim lines.  "Time
to remind him of his duty."

     They arrived on the Isle at midday, and it took most of the rest of that time to
work their way through the layers of petty officials to the final secretary, an
elderly part-elf by the name of Arkinsutram, who was able to grant them an
appointment with King Mikel.  "Tomorrow morning at eleven, and see to it that you're
on time.  But no more than half an hour, mind!  The king is very busy."
     Sedalia bit back his first impulse, which was to ask, "busy doing what?"  And
his second impulse, which was to question the king's name.  "Mikel" sounded almost
right, but not quite....  Maybe he had forgotten, so long as it had been since the
king had done anything for his people.  Or maybe it was this "simplified spelling"
movement that came and went.  Not that it was likely to matter.  If he was, indeed,
the king they were to see on the morrow, he could call himself Rumplestiltskin for
all Sedalia cared.  "We will be here," he said.  "We'll be early."

     Senator Sedalia spent the evening visiting with other Consortium gladiators on
the Isle.  And why not?  They were here, they were in some degree colleagues of his,
and you could never know when a few extra votes would make the difference between
victory and defeat.  Or who might have noticed some little detail that would provide
the key to handling the situation.
     As it happened, it was Brujah, a newly arrived graduate who had not yet fought
on the Isle, who raised the critical question.  "What about the oath, Senator?" she
asked.  Seeing his raised eyebrows, she went on, "I have not fought here yet, so I
have not yet taken the oath which all MUST take before entering an arena on the Isle.
But I've heard others take it, and seen more than I heard.  That oath is... binding.
Seriously binding.  Everyone who takes it is pledged, by magic even more than honor,
to obey the Grey Witch in her every command.  I suspect that this is how she's
controlled the whole Andorian situation so far.  Anyone who takes the oath, if told
that this King Mikel is THE king of the Andorian League and that his decisions are
not to be questioned must be unable to question them.  She--or anyone properly
designated by her, I would suppose--must be able even to command a Lord Protector to
attack his own manager or teammates and be obeyed.  All of Alastari, through
believing her at first to have their best interests at heart, and then through not
paying attention to the details, has put this terrible weapon in the Grey Witch's
hands.  How will you fight it, Senator Sedalia?  You have fought here, you have taken
the oath."
     The senator cleared his throat and blushed a little.  "I'm a politician," he
said.  "Oaths..." he snapped his fingers.  "I'm not making light of your warning, I
will definitely remember it and take it into account, but it is very nearly
impossible to bind a politicial with an oath.  I believe I have free action in this
matter, and I know that my companion, Gissanniah, has never fought here and so has
taken no oath."
     "Such might see to your own free will," Lady Huntsman said.  She was a graduate
of his own team, the Lenpros of Iaye.  "But what will you do if I, or Cardinal
Arizpe, or some other is commanded to attack you?"
     "I believe you underestimate the slipperyness of a politician, my lady," the
Cardinal said from across the room.  "I've no doubt he would fight if we cornered
him, but that is easier said than done, eh?"
     Sedalia nodded.  "Just so.  And the oath may not bind you all with equal
strength, or any of you quite so much as you think."
     "True," Brujah conceded at once.  "We won't know until it's tested.  And then it
will be too late if the binding IS strong enough to compel us."
     "So we will evade the need for that test for as long as may be," the senator
said.

     Senator Sedalia and Gissanniah were at the White Tower early.  "Better to spend
some time waiting," the senator said, "than arrive on time and find our appointment
had been preponed and we missed it."
     "Prepone?  Is that a word?"
     "Yes.  Prepone or antipone, either one, they go with postpone as the reverse
case."  He dismissed that issue with a gesture.  "As it is, here we are and--"
     The door at the rear of the waiting room opened.  The man who stood there was
completely unmemorable, a perfect bureaucratic type... except for his eyes.  Dark,
and sharp as nails.  He seemed surprised them, and he frowned.  "Sedalia from Iaye?"
     "In person," the senator said, standing.  "If the king is ready to see us now,
we--"
     "The king cannot see you at all," the bureaucrat said.  "He is unwell and needs
his rest."
     "His kingdom is unwell and needs his attention," Sedalia countered.
     The man's eyes darkened further, sharpened further.  No one but a politician
could have stood up to that piercing scrutiny without a twitch.  "The king cannot see
you," he repeated.
     "So be it, can we see him?"
     "I said--"
     "Just see him, to verify his presence.  Proof of life," the senator said.
"There are people in the Andorian League who have begun to question his continued
survival."
     "I, who am the Master of the White Tower for the Lady Sheila, say the king lives
and is here, but ill.  This is enough.  Who would question me?"
     "Many people across the Andorian League, I should think.  Come now, it would be
a simple matter to just let us take a quick look in on him.  No need to disturb him,
all we need is to SEE him."
     "You are impertinent.  It is impossible.  Leave."  He stepped back into the room
behind him, of which they had no glimpse, and shut the door.
     "That was a very strange encounter," Sedalia said.  "Do you think--?"
     "I think we should do as we were told and leave," Gissanniah said.  "Without
discussion."  Dropping her voice to just above a whisper, she added, "The walls may
have ears."
     "Ah.  Yes, silly of me not to have thought of that."  He held open the outer
door for her.  "It seems a shame to return to Iaye--or wherever--without more
information, but I can't see that we have any other options.  Waiting around here...
I don't think that paper-pusher is going to soften and let us in, do you?"
     "Not in this lifetime!"  Gissanniah turned toward the ferry.  Or, at least,
toward the road that would eventually take them to the ferry.  "I don't like the feel
of this place, and the sooner I'm away from it, the happier I'll be."
     "Quite understandable, dear lady," the senator said.  He fell into step beside
her.  They walked in silence for a block.  Two blocks.  The traffic was lighter than
it had been the day before, the district around the White Tower seeming almost
deserted.  It occurred to Sedalia that this could have a sinister implication, and he
peered searchingly into every alley they passed, every mist-shrouded doorway.
"Something is wrong here," he said quietly.
     Beside him, Gissanniah shivered and put her hand on the hilt of her sword.
"There's going to be an ambush," she said just as quietly.  "That Master of the White
Tower does not want us taking any news to the people of the League."

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TOBIR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see STEWART win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ABBOTT 
beat GINKOR and GINKOR lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is 
the spice of life, TOBIR may be getting bland, as MOLYNEUX stays top dog in the city. 
The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get 
this stuff?  From TOBIR's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TOBIR's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the TOBIR arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Molyneux -- Oh, good!  (unconvincing smile)  I didn't want to be Duelmaster, you
know.  What would I say?  I'm just an ordinary dog-in-the-street type of guy. --
Ginkor
P.S.  You'd think, with all those defense skills, I wouldn't--  Oh, right.

Weston -- That was amazing.  It was as though you were standing there spinning around
in front of me, presenting target after target.  I couldn't refuse your generosity.
-- Echanosarah

Abbott -- You...you dog-kicker! -- a chagrinned Whole Mutt

Bombay -- I didn't want to bite you, they made me do it!  The arenamaster, that's who
it was.  He breathed fire at me! -- Mr Fang

Dead Mun -- You weren't the least bit cooperative.  I wanted you to lie down so I
could roll on you. -- Miss Mutt
