Somewhere in the hills between Aljafir, North Fork, and Kurukar:

     "It was inevitable," Fool's Gold said.  "I don't say it was the Black Kaliv
himself, but someone up in Kurukar has realized that they're been spied on.  We, ah,
saw to it that the first of their counter-spies 'disappeared'--this is good country
for that.  But we won't catch them all, you know.  And they're likely to catch some
of ours."
     Vekhirn nodded.  He was intelligent enough to draw conclusions from such clear
facts as his spells and his helpers brought him, and his years at the Satrap's court
had taught him a lot about maneuver, concealment, intrigue, all the tools the
traitorous kaliv would be using.  So he knew that the Fool's prediction was not just
likely but certain.
     "I know you have magical defenses around this camp," the gladiator went on, "and
we've got sentries out, but that isn't enough.  We need to separate, establish more
than one camp, maybe half a dozen smaller ones--"
     "And nobody should know where all the camps are," Moonjumper cut in.  So no one
person captured can give away all of us."
     "That will make it hard to coordinate our efforts," Vekhirn pointed out.
     "Right now, coordination is a low priority," she said.  "Yes, all the
information has to come together in one place to be studied, but that isn't the same,
that can be dealt with some other way--"
     "All the information to be sent to Murska, to some 'safe drop' there," suggested
Cadal, a Murskan gladiator.  "Whoever receives the reports not to know who or where
any of them come from."
     "Each independent group to have its own special area and situation to study,
maybe," Fool's Gold added, "along with general observation.  And you get clear out of
this area, go to Murska or somewhere, to analyze the information as it comes to you."
     "I should be in the field investigating with the rest of you!" Vekhirn
protested.
     "No, you should not."  Moonjumper frowned at him.  "You are the only one who
understands enough of the general situation to draw all the threads together and
weave a coherent fabric from them.  And you're getting too old for field work.  You
would be no use to anybody if you died or were captured."
     "Besides, you're the only one the Satrap might listen to, when we have something
to report," Cadal said.
     "If he'll listen at all," Fool's Gold added, frowning in turn.  "After all, the
Satrap IS married to the Black Kaliv's sister.  That might bias him.  Heck, if Lady
Jasryala is 'in on' the Black Kaliv's plot, even only on the edge of it, she might be
influencing the Satrap already."
     "So that when the time comes to take action," Moonjumper said, picking up the
thread smoothly, "we may have to go outside the Glorious Empire for a force powerful
enough and WILLING to do what must be done."
     Vekhirn rubbed his forehead tiredly and looked around at the camp.  As camps in
the wilderness went, it was a good one, secure, well-designed, and not at all
haphazard.  Which is as it should be, after all the months they'd been here.  He
suppressed a shudder, remembering the winter.  But it was still a camp in the
wilderness, and reluctant though he was to acknowledge it, he was getting a little
old for this kind of life.  The rest of his helpers, except for those standing watch,
were gathered in an outer ring around the fire where Fool's Gold and his two henchmen
were presenting their proposal.  They appeared to be in agreement with the
suggestions.
     The magician sighed.  "You may be right, and you're certainly not wrong," he
admitted.  "What did you have in mind for the various 'special projects' which the
various groups might undertake?  I will confess that I have not given much thought to
how it might be broken into smaller tasks."
     "We can't analyze the magical component," Moonjumper said, "but the physical
part of it is clear enough."  She began to count points off on her fingers.  "There
are Black Ships on the Trier, and while some are based in Kurukar itself, many are
not.  That other base or bases needs to be found and studied.  There are Black Ships
in Aljafir Bay.  We don't know where they're based, although the north coast of the
bay seems most likely.  He has land forces.  We don't know how many and we don't know
enough about their composition--there have been confused reports of 'demons' with or
even leading the forces.  We suspect that he has sent agents into the central swamp
south of Aljafir, and also into the swamp between Kurukar and Veastian."  She
switched hands.  "And we know that he has agents at the Satrap's court, even if his
sister Jasryala is NOT involved.  It seems likely that he has agents in other nations
and city-states, for instance, he must have agents in the Andorian League.
Stormcrowe and North Fork, of course.  Murska, Malcorn, maybe on the Isle of the
Eye."
     Vekhirn held up a hand to stop her.  "You have made your point, Moonlady," he
said.  "Organize that as you will, and I will give thought to dividing up the magical
investigations, for it is true that I am only one man.  Sometimes I grow tired, and
the tired mind misses points of importance.  And there must be others with the
awareness of danger and the knowledge to resist.  I shall see to that."

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ZUWAYZA!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for EVEL DEWAR?  FUNKY 
FOLK's proud of him after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 20 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  NIFTY NICKEL's match with PETE MOSS cost him a loss of 13 
points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think DAN STEPPE should 
let LUSCIOUS be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS 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 FUNKY FOLK's been avoiding THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS so 
much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is WHITE CHOCOATE popular, or 
what?  She was challenged the most in all of ZUWAYZA!  She's got a 20-7-0, is that 
good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Ornament -- Perhaps you believe I need ample nurturing.  Well, I'll have none of
that; you or Lois and her matriarchial treachery.  Victory shall be mine! -- Stewart
Gilligan Griffin

Dan Steppe -- No.  Nonono.  This is not the way to give me an interview.  No. --
Times

Jack Hamma -- Very nice.  Thanks. -- Nifty Nickel

Tiberius -- Go stuff a turbot, dammit. -- Hot Rod

Marco Titanius -- I don't think you're ready for any belt.  Of course, with a toga,
you may not need one. -- Black Belt

Bart Simpson -- Ah.  And part of your cunning is that you make yourself look tall,
thus deluding people on all sorts of subjects, I suppose. -- Ornament
P.S.  Because five-foot-ten isn't a "runt" unless you're Shewish.  Which you
apparently are not.

Stewie Griffin -- Not my kind of decoration. -- Ornament

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
