     "Okay," Lenpro said, "we have to go to Andor.  We figured we'd need to do that
eventually.  Why sooner?"
     "Because someone doesn't want us to," Fandil said.  "That, I think, is what the
magical barrier--it's still there, and it must be using an enormous amount of energy
to maintain--that's what it's all about.  Cutting off Andor from Fratsfa."
     "From you?"
     The old mage shrugged.  "I don't know.  Maybe.  Or cutting off a magician there
IN Andor who is seeking help from Fratsfa.  Or both."
     "Or even for some reason you haven't thought of," Lady Fern said, "and the
effects you mentioned are secondary."
     Both men scowled at her.  One may love a sister and still be annoyed at her
unconventional observations and peculiar viewpoint.
     "Yes, perhaps," Fandil said after a moment.  "But we can't base our actions on
'something we haven't imagined'.  We have to work with what we CAN think of.  Which
is that the barrier is a sort of magical 'divide and conquer' effort."
     "Which makes it a reason for you to go," Lenpro said, "but I don't--"
     The door banged open, letting in the smell of flowers from the back room of the
shop and one of Lady Fern's gladiators.  Sizzling Sunflower posed in the doorway,
radiating excitement and energy.  "Someone's kidnapped a couple of girls!  People are
saying it was monsters!"
     "Just 'monsters', nothing specific?" Lenpro asked.
     "Well, the description sounds like a werecat half-changed," the gladiatress
answered.  "I didn't know they could hold themselves at that stage, unless it's the
effect of the shape-changer plague?"
     "There's already widespread distrust of the Aruaki here," Lenpro said, rising.
"People could even just imagine that the kidnappers are werecats, and it would be
enough to bring about attacks on quite innocent people.  I'd better go check on
this."  He shrugged apologetically at his brother Fandil and took Sunflower's arm.
"You can lay most of your plans without my presence, can't you?"
     "Yes, of course," Fandil said.
     As the door slammed shut behind Lenpro and the Flower Girl, Lady Fern said,
"There might be a physical barrier between Fratsfa and Andor, too, as well as a
magical one."
     "What would be the point of that?"
     "It would keep Emperor Alonj from going to Andor and taking control of the
     Fandil sat down with a thump.  "You're right.  I hadn't thought of that.  But is
he ready to go?"
     Fern shrugged.  "That isn't the point.  If the king is truly dead--"  She held
up a hand.  "I know, you're almost certain.  It's just, well, it feels odd to say it.
Like that makes it more real.  Anyway, if there is going to be some new ruler, the
sooner he's in place, the better.  Because whoever gets there first will have an edge
in any, ah, dispute.  If Alonj isn't first--"
     "But there isn't anyone else," Fandil said.  "The people won't accept an elf
from Ardivent or an Aruaki at present, and the High Thane of Convincia is too old.
Raltumas...not a chance, especially not now that Aradi has seceded; their political
credit is no good.  So who else could there be?"
     "Someone you haven't thought of yet," she said, ignoring his theatrical groan.
"Someone who's trying to usurp control, maybe for himself or maybe as an agent for
some enemy--the Karnhorns, maybe.  How should I know?  But there's someone stirring
this pot, Fandil.  That's the person you have to identify and stop."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     There, you see?  Again, your weapon was broken by the blow and you had no
backup, Miss Scarlet.  You really need to do something about that.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in LYRATILAN this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, JESSITA MAUR fought VISITING 
ORC and gained 17 points and contributed to THE MIDDLE WAY 4's 2-3-0.  GRIFLET IRVEL 
has lost to VIRGINAL CONCUBINE, falling 3 points, while helping make THE MIDDLE WAY 4 
a 2-3-0 turn.  And not without some honor, MISS SCARLET now claims the title and 
throne of Duelmaster of LYRATILAN.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Piper's Rest uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  You gotta do what you gotta do.  WE BEE BAD has sent BEE BEE KING to 
the Dark Arena.  The deed is done.  Lift the ale, and toast the memory.  A farewell 
moment, if you please, STEVIE BEE of WE BEE BAD has been sent to the Dark Arena, and 
was carried out on his shield.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the 
graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, LYRATILAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in LYRATILAN and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in LYRATILAN 
again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Bee Bee King -- Can you call it your day job when you play your guitar at night in
the clubs?  Whatever, that's where your greatest talent lies. -- Girflet Irvel

Carol Ling -- Wow, good thing I didn't wear glass armor, you'd've broken it with some
of those high notes.  And I can just imagine what the arena maintenance crew would've
had to say about glass shards in the sand after the fight.  Not pretty. -- Fenella

A Trustworthy Scribe?  IS there such a thing?  I've never found them all that
reliable, myself. -- Jessita Maur

That "Friendly Constable" was seriously offensive.  The nerve, to put his hand there,
and me a guy just like him!  It's no wonder the Chief Constable of the city wants him
in the arena rather than out on the streets. -- Saml Ulron

     Your loss is my gain and all that good stuff. -- Ed.

Worker Bee -- That definitely stung. -- Wolfgang Talman, Ambitious Guard

Stevie Bee -- You're not very hospitable.  I wasn't asking for much, just a bed for
the night (with a woman in it if possible, it's too cold to sleep alone) and
breakfast in the morning. -- Korgut Vur, Orc at Large

Jessita Maur -- You may trust me to await you in some dark alley, feline. -- Churgan
Vurth, Experienced Scribe
