South of Andor:

     Outcast Orchid looked at her companion.  He had given his name as though it
should mean something to her, but she'd never heard of him.  "Herlas of Zensu?"
     "Yes, to my shame, I am."
     She shook her head.  "That doesn't mean a thing to me, but I can tell you that
as far as I'm concerned, saving my life makes up for a lot."  She looked ahead.  The
farm track they were following wandered into a field and stopped.  "Where do we go
from here?  How long before we can get back on the main roads?  I don't like being
lost."
     "We aren't lost," Herlas said.  "I know where we are, and how to get to Fratsfa
from here--if the Chaos monsters haven't gotten there ahead of us."  He guided her to
the left, into an overgrown woodlot.  "If they have... no reason to go there at all.
Or not to, of course."
     "Well, at least you aren't suggesting that we flee Andoria to escape the
monsters--"
     "What would be the point?  Once they've conquered Andoria, which is their goal,
I think, they will go on to the rest of Alastari, and from there the rest of Ghea."
     "Lady Greywand might have something to say about that."
     "Or she might not.  She's insane, after all."
     The woodlot was small, and on the other side of it was another overgrown track.
     "How can you say that?" Orchid demanded, pulling a twig from her hair.
     "Based on the available evidence," Herlas answered quietly, "but let's not go
into that now."  He gestured slightly, indicating something ahead of them.  "We're
about to have trouble."
     Orchid looked.  One of the monsters was waiting in the middle of the field.  She
drew her sword, unwilling to give up without a fight.  A limb of the thing
transformed into a sort of blade in response.  She foresaw difficulty with an
opponent who could change forms at will.
     Beside her, heat and flickering lights and a smell of ozone as her companion
cast a spell.  Herlas said, "I think I can hold it to one shape, but be quick."
     She nodded and danced forward, her sword beginning to trace the dangerous
patterns of her style.  Sunlight flared along the edge of the blade, clean as
morning, and the monster shied back.  She whirled past it, moving constantly without
pause, slicing and dicing methodically.  Ichor flowed thickly.
     It made a sound.  Why should a Chaos monster that looked a little bit like a
person on a horse make a sound like wind chimes and sea gulls?  Well, why not, it was
chaos, right?  Anything goes, that's what chaos was all about.  Except that she got
the feeling it was upset.  Good!  It should BE upset.  Coming here and trying to take
over HER world--the very idea!  She spun back twoard it, she had a second sword now
in her other hand, didn't know where she'd gotten it, but that didn't matter.  She
hit it like a veritable wall of blades, and every gobbet of flesh she hacked off
burst into flames before it could hit the ground and was destroyed.
     Destroyed utterly.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  DISASTER?  Who?  MEDAL OF HONOR Z3 is the top 
team these days, buddies!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a 
perceptive observation?) as MEDAL OF HONOR Z3 can attest...  Practice pays for EARTH 
QUAKE, who pummelled TCHUMP LOY, to pocket 16 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking 
of which, SERGEANT 3 was winsome, after beating MOHAWK JOE and seeing him lose 9 
points.  WILD FIRE successfully staved off a grab for the roses by LORMIN GARDE of 
KRILL CAVALRY.  Does ZORPUNT have no one talented enough to dethrone it?  So who's 
the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a 
PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Everyone is famous for fifteen 
minutes, and COLIN POOLE is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't KRILL 
CAVALRY proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Justice was served as CAPTAIN BONES fought SERGEANT 2 in bloodfeud.  Well done, 
PIRATE'S COVE!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after 
you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZORPUNT is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ZORPUNT?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
