West of Fratsfa:

     "Now what?" Elosjon asked.
     "Now we make a plan," Fandil said.  "I suppose you don't know anything about the
castle, or any more about the magician there except that he's probably the son of the
last lord of Mountain Home and went somewhere far away to study?"
     Elosjon shook his head.
     "Not a problem, we can work with what we've got already," Fandil said, patting
his shoulder.  "And really, the hint of Chaos Magic is enough."  The old mage's face
set grimly and suddenly looked a lot older than seemed possible.  "He's been studying
Folstrom materials, even if he didn't find the Folstrom themselves to study with."
     Folstrom!  Elosjon shuddered.  The Folstrom, who had nearly destroyed Alastari
once--with Chaos Magic--were the monsters who lurked at the back of every
Alastarian's mind, the ultimate image of evil and depravity, never to be forgiven.
How could anyone seek out their learning?  He asked the question aloud.
     "Some people would go into the very heart of wickedness in search of power, and
vengeance is a strong motive, too," Fandil said.  He sighed and sat down on a tree
root.  "He will not be easy to defeat, but we have learned a few things since the
Folstrom were driven away.  Sit down, boy, so I don't have to strain my neck talking
to you.  I am going to tell you spells that you will never, on pain of worse than
death, repeat, nor even use if it isn't the most desperate last chance."
     "Why?"  Elsojon slid down to sit beside him.  "Why keep them secret, why not use
them, why tell me at all?"
     "Because these spells are as dangerous in their way as Chaos Magic, because
there is a good chance that using them will destroy you, and because someone has to
know them and be ready to use them as the final reserve.  This is a battle to death
and beyond, young man, and we must make what preparations we can."
     The young mage took a deep breath, rubbed his suddenly-sweating hands down his
robe, and nodded.  "Okay."
     Fandil leaned closer to him, dropping his voice to a near whisper, and began to
describe spells.
                         *****   ***   *****   ***   *****
     Elosjon blinked, wondering where the day had gone.  How could it be evening
already?  Or maybe it was evening of the next day, or even two or three days later--
he felt stuffed with arcane knowledge, and it might have taken a long time to pour
all that into him.  He was afraid to move suddenly lest all that magic slosh around
and confuse the spells.  Or spill out uncontrolled.  He couldn't say he'd LEARNED
them, but he was full of them as a bottle might be full of wine.  He understood
Fandil's warnings now.  He would rather carry live coals in his bare hands than the
spells now lodged in his mind.  Still, it was his job to do.  Fandil, a mage with a
towering reputation, was trusting him to do it.
     He looked at Fandil, sitting beside him.  "Now what?"
     "Now we sleep, because darkness favors our Enemy, and we cannot give him that
advantage.  And because we need sleep if we are to be at our best."


     The portal was just a portal and presented no bar to their passage.  Sizzling
Sunflower blinked around at the run-down section of the city to which they had
returned.  It seemed unexpectedly ordinary.  Orderly, despite the litter.  The
buildings were all... square, or at least rectangular, all stone-colored, or brick.
The people all human.  She shook her head.  "I hadn't realized that things were so
conservative," she muttered.
     "Predictable," Lenpro agreed.  "Just as well.  Humans were not meant to live in
     "There were people back there--"  She turned back toward the portal, but there
was nothing to see now.  Just a street, cracked pavement, grubby house-fronts,
drooping trees.
     "People," the manager admitted, "but not humans.  And I would guess not for
long.  That pocket universe is inherently unstable.  But it may not be the only one
of its kind, and I can't believe that it's good for our universe to have those
clustered on it like leeches, so we'd better find my brother and tell him about it.
Fandil will know what to do with a magical problem of that kind."
     "I guess.  But it was an interesting place to visit, if you don't have to live
there."  She started along the street in what she figured was a westerly direction,
toward the better part of the city.  After a moment, she added, "There was a mob here
when we went in.  I kind of thought they'd wait."
     Lenpro glanced up at the sky.  "It's late morning now, and we went through the
portal in the afternoon.  So it's been nearly a day, at the least.  Most mobs don't 
have that much patience."
     "That long?  It didn't seem more than an hour or two that we were in there!"
     "Some day when you have a week to spare, ask Fandil to explain 'temporal
discontinuity' and 'meta-subjective time' to you.  We're probably lucky--I hope we're
lucky--we didn't get back BEFORE we left."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZORPUNT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see SERGEANT 4 win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KUNG-FU MASTER 
beat BUBBA LOY and BUBBA LOY lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ZORPUNT may be getting bland, as WILD FIRE stays top 
dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  
You want to know what's new, don't you, ZORPUNT?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
ZORPUNT, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  KRILL CAVALRY the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like DISASTER avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  
TCHUMP LOY was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZORPUNT's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Wild Fire -- Yes, well, those grapes were sour anyway.  I mean, I didn't want to be
duelmaster.  Not really. -- Lormin Garde

Twister -- Mighty curly of you, but I hid in the cellar until you were tired, then
popped out and finished you off.  This is the kind of thing we do who live in Tornado
Alley. -- Bubba Loy

It's always a pleasure to defeat the Kung-Fu Master.  He gets so uppity, with his "I
don't need weapons" bit.  Bah. -- Tchack Loy

Earth Quake -- Couldn't you syncopate that beat?  Then we could get some music to go
with it, and we'd be set. -- Tchump Loy

Sergeant 1 -- Ah, we wondered if we were going to meet any of you guys.  Not that I'm
thrilled it was me, but that's the breaks. -- Colin Poole
