     Fandil paced in the cramped back room of the Flower Shoppe.  The information
he'd gotten from the young Fratsfan mage Elosjon should be followed out.  It could be
an important clue.  It felt urgent.  But Lenpro wasn't back yet.
     Lady Fern looked up from the geranium she was repotting.  "Sit DOWN, brother!
All this stomping around doesn't accomplish anything except to disturb the plants."
     "There's something I need to check on--quickly, mind you--outside Fratsfa, but I
can't leave until Lenpro returns."
     "Why not?"
     Fandil blinked at her.  "Ah--we started this together, you know, and I don't
feel right about going off without--"
     "You're both grown up," Fern said, "at least as much as men ever are.  If Lenpro
hasn't returned, it's because he feels what he's doing is important, too.  When he
does get back, I'll tell him where you've gone and why.  Where is the difficulty
here, Fandil?"
     "And take that youngster Elosjon with you before he sinks through the floor in
embarrassment.  The girls are having too much fun teasing him."


     Lenpro didn't mention the disappearance of the gate they'd come through, but
Sizzling Sunflower turned to look also.  "It isn't like we need a way out," she said.
"This is a great place, really good soil for the roots, and plenty of sunlight!"
     Lenpro looked at her, suddenly worried.  "Is this what you want for your life,
to become a sunflower completely and stand in the light with your feet in the dirt?
Bees to pollinate you and birds to harvest your seeds?"
     She turned her face, which was rounder and more like the flower she was named
for with every passing moment, toward him, and her eyes opened wide.  "Bees?"
     "I seem to recall that's how sunflowers do it."
     "BEES?"  She blinked at him, startled and dismayed.  "No!  Surely I wouldn't
become a PLANT."
     "Look at yourself," Lenpro said.  "Listen to what you've been saying."
     "The lady wants to be a plant, you shouldn't butt in," someone growled.
     Gladiator and manager turned.  Something that was half man and half feline faced
them, ears laid back and whiskers bristling.  "And this was your choice?" Lenpro
asked, indicating the hybrid form.  "To be neither one thing or the other, unwelcome
in either group?"  To ask such questions here and now was probably dangerous, the
creature looked to be balanced on knife-edge of temper, but he wasn't feeling
diplomatic.  A good fight might clear the--  No, he couldn't push things that far,
what was he thinking?  Was this place getting to him, too?  He had responsibilities,
and they did not include getting himself killed here in some pocket dimension.
"Sorry, not my business.  But the young lady is my business."
     The man-cat looked at them for a long minute, while others of this place
gathered behind him.  Other man-cats, but no two alike, something that might have
been a sort of werewolf, and many stranger forms.  Some were clearly not far from
their human beginnings, but others--he assumed they had started as human, but now it
was hard to believe that.  "You need to see the king," the man-cat decided.  "We will
take you there."
     So, a king.  Not the anarchy he had thought at first.  Was this good or bad?  A
king meant authority he could appeal to in order to get the kidnapped women returned.
But if the king said no, it meant authority on the other side, no recovery of the
women, and maybe no escape for himself and Sunflower.  Well, you played the hand you
were dealt.  He watched the denizens of this place move to surround them and herd
them through the chaotic jumble of buildings and ruins.  They weren't going to be
given a choice to decline.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZORPUNT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SERGEANT 2 caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 
20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ICE STORM put 
down TCHACK LOY, causing him to lose 2 points of recognition in the process.  Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, BUT TCHENI LOY is still the 
Duelmaster because she has the most recognition points!  Would you believe that over 
half of the old women in ZORPUNT seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ZORPUNT.  ZORPUNT, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is KRILL CAVALRY, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding KRILL CAVALRY.  Indeed it was DISASTER.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  TCHACK LOY take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in ZORPUNT.  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty 
victory.  See, gladiators, how PAUL WIEDORFER of MEDAL OF HONOR J4 challenged down 17 
points to BUBBA LOY.  The weight of the challenge fell hard upon BUBBA LOY and 
predictably he lost to PAUL WIEDORFER.  This is how to arouse the anger of an entire 
guild!  I can not but mention with disdain the name of SERGEANT3 who this week posted 
a challenge to a warrior a full 11 points below in the rankings.  I thought SERGEANT3 
showed great skill and promise when he overcame LORMIN GARDE.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in ZORPUNT as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--
