Fratsfa:

     The slum they were in decayed into a worse slum, and that faded into an area
that was half ruins and half buildings that just managed to stay upright.  There were
people in the ramshackle structures even so.  Sizzling Sunflower saw one woman
dressed in rags--literally in rags, and it was impossible to guess her age--staring
at them as though they were the most alien and fantastic beings imaginable.  Perhaps
they were, here.
     Lenpro touched her arm.  "Don't stare at them," he said quietly.
     "How can they live like this?" Sunflower demanded.
     "A wise man once said to me that if you don't know where people are coming from
and where they're going, you can't judge the route they've chosen."
     "That sounds, I don't know, profound or something, but what does it mean?"
     "It means you should let be, until someone actually asks for help, or at least
until you know more."  They turned a corner--there were no long straight avenues
here--and approached the crumbling wall that enclosed the Old Ruins.
     Lenpro frowned.  The wall was shimmering, faintly but unmistakably.  Or maybe it
weren't, maybe it was just heat waves or sun reflecting off snow.  Both at once?  It
was an odd thing, anyway, and probably magical, and as such it should be approached
with caution.  And preferably with a mage in hand, but Fandil wasn't here.  Lenpro
didn't think they had time to waste going back to get him.  He glanced at Sizzling
Sunflower.
     She was staring at the wall, wide-eyed.  "Weird!" she said, and smiled.  "This
should be something new, let's try it!"
     Lenpro shook his head.  It was a long time since he'd been that young.  But
maybe hers was the right attitude anyway.  "Yes, let's."  He stepped up to the
gateway.
     The sensation was a familiar one: they had stepped through some kind of
dimensional gateway.  And if he'd had any question about that, what he saw beyond it
would have made all certain.  They were not on Ghea any more.
     The buildings were as ruined as he had expected in this oldest part of Fratsfa,
if it still was based on that city.  But heaps of rubble reared into narrow mounds of
unnatural height, and broken walls loomed and tottered, seeming to hang in mid-air
when they should be collapsing.  The flagstoned streets lay at unexpected angles, and
sometimes there was nothing at all between the stones.  They say people, more than
Lenpro had expected, but not one who appeared normal.  He began to wonder how he
appeared to them and glanced over at Sizzling Sunflower.
     She looked half plant, or maybe like a sunflower that was half human.  She
touched his arm with one leafy green hand.  "This is so neat!  It's a whole other
world here!"  When she smiled, her teeth were striped like sunflower seeds.
     "It is that," Lenpro agreed.  He glanced back to check on their line of retreat.
They didn't have a line of retreat, there was no sign of the gateway through which
they'd come.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TOBIR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
PITCH, who pummelled HELENA, to pocket 16 points.  DALMORE certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to VIRGINAL CONCUBINE and losing 27 points in 
the process!  Now I can't insult WHOLE MUTT, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  
Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team 
in TOBIR is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Little Big Mun -- I can't complain, I haven't had such a good romp in DAYS.  You
really know what to do with a frisbee. -- Whole Mutt

George Foremun -- If you were an orc, you might be more fun. -- Mr Fang
P.S.  But probably not.

Mun Over Board -- You're not supposed to go OVER the board, you're supposed to hang
onto it so you don't drown, silly! -- Lady Nip

Bombay -- Aw.  Come snuggle down with me and I'll kiss it and make it better.  That's
an advantage us dogs have, bigger tongues so we can do bigger kisses. -- Floormat

Helena -- There was no reason for you to blow your top like that! -- Pitch

Our congratulations to Rain Mun. -- Jorja and the Doghouse pack

     If there were supposed to be more personals here, our apologies.  Hal spent a
     night on the tiles, and we're still trying to catch up with the mail.  They
     should, well, they might appear next time.
