     Raoul glanced over his shoulder, but Dankilvan's mansion was already out of
sight around one of the street's numerous curves.  He wasn't sure Berdan had even
noticed their departure yet; at least, the Fratsfan wasn't coming along behind them.
He shrugged and turned forward again.  As he'd told Hallie, they could do this
mission without Berdan if they had to, and looked like that was the way it was going
to be.  He looked at the Delarquan.  "Tell us more about these vampires in Leemith,
doll.  Are they going to be a problem to deal with?  Do they attack chance
     "Well...not instantly, anyway."  Hallie pulled a couple of pocket-sized leather
folders from a belt pouch, handing one to each gladiator.  "These are passes signed
by Lord Dankilvan and naming you as being on business for Istoreth.  If you get a
chance to show the pass, that should give you some protection.  Of course, if we meet
someone who's working for, oh, Sharvan or Pantiello, or even Ulm, maybe, then the
passes will get us INTO trouble...."
     "Those being other city-states here, I take it?"
     "Yep.  The Ulmers are probably okay, they've got some kind of trade treaty with
Convincia.  But if the Leemin don't want whatever it is your Peranis is selling, I
bet the Sharvanese will."
     "These Sharvanese have Delarquan ties?" Jeri asked.
     "No, ISTORETH has Delarquan ties," Hallie corrected her.  "Sharvan isn't a
player in Trier politics.  Yet.  But they want to be."
     "And Peranis' book of names and blackmail material would give them their ticket
to the party," Raoul finished.  "Damn."  He scowled at the crowded street and the
city gate ahead of them without seeing any of it.  "What's the political stance of
this Leemith place?"
     "Mostly they just want to be left alone," Hallie answered promptly.  "If they
buy the list of names, it would be some lord doing it for personal profit, I would
guess.  Nobody's ever suggested they want to be a power in the Trier."
     Raoul nodded, his attention returning to his companions.  "So Peranis might be
able to sell it in Leemith if he's in a hurry, but he'd probably get more money, and
cause more trouble for Andorian, if he takes it to Sharvan?"
     "Yes.  That'd be how I see it."  Hallie glanced at Raoul.  "Whose names are on
this list?"
     "According to Berdan, noblemen, politicians, merchants, even some arena
managers--people who make a big noise in Andorian politics and the Andorian economy."
     "People with secrets they'd pay a lot--or do a lot--to keep hidden."
     "Hmm."  Hallie showed her own pass at the city's gate and indicated her
companions with a gesture.  "They're with me."  She led the way through the gate and
onto the open road.
     "We might've asked how long ago Peranis went through," Jeri said, urging her
mount up beside Hallie's.
     "I already did.  Two days.  It's one day from here to Leemith, another day to
Ulm, a third to Sharvan, moving at a normal traveling pace.  Peranis may already have
made his deal in Leemith, if he found a purchaser there."
     Raoul glanced at the sky.  It was midmorning, clear and crisp.  Maybe eight
hours of daylight left, he judged.  "Let's pick up our pace a little, then, so we can
make inquiries in Leemith this evening."
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     The road hugged the coast, sometimes running along the narrow, stony beach,
sometimes veering inland to cross small, steep-sided valleys, occasionally clinging
to a cliff above the water.  They met no one coming from the south, and were
overtaken by no coming from behind them.  There were no villages or inns along the
road.  A dense pine forest covered most of the land near the road.
     "You could BELIEVE in vampires in a place like this," Jeri muttered, twisting to
reach the cloak tied behind her saddle.  The temperature had dropped steadily all
morning, and now, looking north, she saw why.  A bank of clouds filled the northern
sky with shades of slate and charcoal.
     "Of course.  What's to disbelieve?  I never argue with the facts, doll," Raoul
said.  He glanced over at her--they were riding all three abreast--and followed her
gaze northward.  "Damn.  Any place along here where we could take shelter?"
     "Not that I know of," Hallie admitted, squinting at the clouds uneasily.  "We
might come across something, I suppose, but would YOU trust any shelter you found
along here under these circumstances?  Bound to be a disaster waiting to happen."
     "We don't have much choice," Jeri argued.  "If we can find ANYTHING, a house, a
ruin, a CAVE, even, I'm for it!"  She kicked her horse into a better pace.  "We know
there's no shelter behind us, almost all the way back to Istoreth, so--"  The horse
seemed to share her dislike of storms and willingly shifted into a pounding gallop
down the hill into the next little valley.
     Almost hidden among the trees was the curved stone wall of a stubby tower.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to LYRATILAN once again!  Biff!  Pow!  LYRATILAN watched with glee 
as PRIMATES-R-US got knocked off top spot by THE MIDDLE WAY 4!  What's with SIAMESE 
SPY?  She actually beat THE MIDDLE WAY 4's YENTA ZEL, and walked away with 26 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at KITTY KONSPIRACY while they watched 
SIAMESE SPY clobber YENTA ZEL.  She lost 16 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  What a role model for LYRATILAN's young 'uns!  MONKEY WRENCH 
becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure LYRATILAN is excited 
about NOLAN ORGEL, the new Duelmaster from THE MIDDLE WAY 4.  (remember?)  But when 
you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to 
practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of LYRATILAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Ape Wild -- Oh.  I guess that's why grinding the hand-organ didn't make you dance,
huh?  Darn.  Back to the ol' drawing board. -- Nolan Orgel

Monkey Wrench -- OW!  You HIT me with it, and that HURT. -- Xylz Aree
P.S.  Good work, though.

Jungle Jim -- Good try, but no seegar.  Not that I assume you want a seegar.  Horrid
things.  Taste like trash fires, usually.  Ick. -- Tam Ullan

The "Noble Assassin" hit me while I was still in shock at hearing that foul killer so
named.  I call this grossly unfair.  I mean, I was coming out of it, I was AHEAD at
the end of the first minute, and that he did one of his sneaky assassin things, I
still don't know what it was exactly, and I was staggering with exhaustion.  Bound to
have been some kind of trick, right? -- Bron Chollu

Grape Ape -- And to think that we came out of our fairly peaceful retirement to a
tavern in Point just to fight you guys.  Sometimes I'm amazed at the tricks life
plays on us all. -- Yenta Zel

Let it be known far and wide, that the Warrior TUM 18-7380, the Champions Runner-Up
for the recent Tournament, is managed by none other than Shocking Toad.  I named this
fabulous warrior after my friend and mentor, TUM, a.k.a. Don!  Sorry TUM didn't get
me my first TC; however, a runner-up with all those sandbaggers is pretty impressive,
if I do say so myself. -- Shocking Toad, The Manager

13 November 2003
All -- This is to announce that I am no longer a member of the Vendetta Cartel
Alliance.  I have enjoyed my time there, and I've made some great friends.  Their
company will be missed, but they will endure.  I wish them well. -- Apex
