Fratsfa:

     It was one of the worst parts of the city.  Calling it a slum would be an insult
to honest slums elsewhere.  Lenpro's first instinct was to hustle the Flower Girl out
of there.  How did she even come to know such an area?  He glanced sideways at
Sizzling Sunflower.  It might be better to ask how she could help finding it.
     Sunflower was leaning close to a man, talking earnestly.  Persuasively, because
his firm gestures of refusal were becoming uncertain.  Very persuasively, because she
finally took him by the arm and brought him over to Lenpro.  As he watched them
approach, the manager was impressed with how carefully the stranger did not attempt
to take any liberties with the Flower Girl.
     "This is Two-finger Tom," Sunflower said.  "He saw what happened, and he'll tell
you what he saw."
     "Yeah, well."  The man squinted at him, looked around carefully, leaned closer.
His breath was bad.  "I seen some of those cat men grab a couple of decent girls.
Dragged 'em off, they did.  I reckon that has something bad in mind."
     Lenpro resisted the urge to step away from this case of walking halitosis.  "We
can't go by what you 'reckon'," he said.  "What do you know for sure?"
     "That a coupla those Aruaki--" Two-finger Tom spat, narrowly missing Lenpro's
boot, "they grabbed a coupla human girls and dragged them off.  Down that way," he
added, jerking his head toward the river.  "No telling what they might do to the
girls.  Cats.  You can't trust 'em."
     "Then we'd best go look for the girls."  Lenpro glanced around at the crowd that
had gathered.  "A group of us are going to look for the girls who were taken," he
said.  "A disciplined group, not a mob."
     Someone in the back of the crowd laughed.  "Sounds to me like a mob--a LYNCH
mob--is what's needed here."
     "Yeah, we can start by killing all those beast-men!  More beast than man, THEY
are!" someone else yelled.  Also someone in the back that Lenpro couldn't see.  The
crowd stirred and muttered, some in agreement and some not, but the agreement seemed
to have the upper edge.
     "No killing out of hand!" Lenpro shouted back.  "That isn't the Andorian Way--"
     The first man took up the argument again, his voice dripping contempt.  "The
'Andorian Way' is just a pretty toy the elves and beast-lovers came up with to hobble
us honest humans!  That 'Andorian Way' isn't worth spit!"
     The crowd stirred and muttered.  A lot of the mutters seemed to be in agreement
with the hecklers.
     "Show yourself!" Lenpro demanded.  "If you have courage in your convictions,
step forward and show your face."
     The crowd stirred and a man came forward.  Was thrust forward, perhaps against
his will, by the people around and behind him.  He looked defiant, truculent.
     He looked Karnhorn.  Lenpro knew that racial stereotyping was often unfair, but
he needed to discredit this man before the crowd became a mob.  "Is this the Karnhorn
party line you've been handing out?" he asked, keeping his voice calm, idly curious.
"It sounds like it, and you look like it."
     More stirring in the crowd, mutters, a wave of suspicion.  If there was a
lynching, this man might be first, and he could see it.  "I'm no Kjarran-lover," he
growled.  "Don't go putting words in my mouth!"
     "Somebody's been putting them there," Lenpro said.  "Somebody with his
headquarters in Zuwayza, I'd guess."  He held up a hand and stopped the surge of the
crowd--for now, at least.  "You didn't want us to wait for facts before lynching
Aruaki, why should we wait for facts before lynching you?"
     "I'm not--!"
     Someone threw a stone, Lenpro couldn't see who.  It arched up over the heads of
the crowd and struck the possible Karnhorn on the side of the head so that he
staggered and fell, blood running down the side of his face.
     The crowd roared and became a mob, maddened and excited by the blood, by having
a target for hostility that had been festering.  Lenpro cursed and pushed Sunflower
back.  He wanted the heckler for questioning, but he wasn't going to get the man.
The mob would see to that--and maybe that mob had been triggered by his accomplice
who didn't want questions asked.  He wanted to go in search of the missing girls, but
he suspected that wasn't going to happen right away, either.  The witness, informant,
that Sizzling Sunflower had found was in the thick of the mob.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZORPUNT will ever be the same.  And let's see, SERGEANT3 fought BUBBA LOY and 
gained 14 points and contributed to MEDAL OF HONOR J4's 4-1-0.  IS RIGHT HANDED has 
lost to LORMIN GARDE, falling 1 points, while helping make MEDAL OF HONOR J4 a 4-1-0 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and TCHENI LOY remains 
ZORPUNT's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I 
saw last night, cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in ZORPUNT, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ZORPUNT again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

What did I do to the Userous Merchant that he had to smack me around like that? --
Lormin Garde
P.s.  Of course, he cost me the title, and that can't be all bad.

If this Captured Orc was such child's play for Lormin, maybe we should've switched
oppontents. -- Tchack Loy

Somebody's been feeding the Fratsfa Slave red meat.  Not a good idea. -- Bubba Loy

Sergeant3 -- They tell me an it's an honor to fight a real opponent, but then "they"
will say anything.  At least I lost to a "real" opponent rather than to a standby.
Thanks, I guess. -- Tchump Loy
