On the Isle of the Eye:

     "Four steps and we're lost," Senator Sedalia muttered.  "This is worse than
     "They do say that the Isle is larger than the Lake and touches other waters,"
Gissanniah answered.  "What do we do?  Just start walking until we get somewhere--
     "It may come to that, but I'm not ready to give up yet."  The senator looked
around again.  "Hmm.  How about if I stand still, right here, and we hold hands--no,
that might not give us enough distance."  He undid his necktie and handed one end to
his companion.  "I'll stand here and hold my end, you go out to the farthest end of
the tie and your arm--no fear of it breaking, silk is very strong--and walk around me
in a wide circle.  We haven't come so far as all that.  You should be able to reach
the edge of the woods at some point on that circle.  Then you stand still and tug on
the tie until I join you."  Of course, it was possible that the edge of the woods was
no longer four steps away, or that any edge they found would be the one they'd come
from.  You could never tell, with magic.  But since neither he nor Gissanniah could
do anything about those possibilities, the senator saw no point in mentioning them.


     "That's a big fire," Lenpro said.
     Fandil squinted ahead.  It was certainly a lot of smoke.  "Maybe... they're
burning brush in the fields before planting?" he suggested.
     "Late in the season to plant."
     "It's been a wet spring, planting has been delayed in a lot of places."
     "Maybe," Lenpro said, "but that smoke is rising over the city of Tarrgir.  It
might be buildings burning, instead of brush."
     "If that's so, perhaps we can help them put the fire out," Fandil said.  He
urged his horse to a faster pace.
     "If they want the fires put out," Lenpro muttered.  "I have a feeling about


     Herlas backed up two steps before he even thought about it.  "You can't parade
that golem through the streets and claim it's the king!"
     Hesselbod raised his eyebrows.  "Of course we can."  He gestured at the golem
who stood obediently, dressed in royal garments and awaiting a command.  "The artist
who modeled the face and figure has caught the appearance of the last king quite
well, the artificer who constructed the golem was the best Lord Korneth could hire,
and with your magic to cast a glamor over the whole, no one will doubt that this
truly is the king."
     Herlas gaped in silence for a moment, stunned by the magnitude of Lord Korneth's
ambition and of the royal scribe's misunderstanding.  "The best illusions will not
fool everyone," he said, "and without illusion, that is obviously a golem.  You'll
have a firestorm of outraged citizens--"
     "That is not your concern," Lord Korneth said coldly, entering the room.  He
dismissed the scribe with a flick of his eyes.
     Herlas turned to face him squarely.  He was not afraid of Korneth of Sengir, who
had come from nowehre and styled himself Chief Minister of Andoria, but he was deeply
wary.  There was too much unknown about this man for anyone to feel relaxed around
him, starting with where Sengir might be found and what Korneth wanted with the
Andorian states.  Herlas had thought, originally, that Korneth was driven by a simple
ambition to rule.  Ambition, he could understand, and as the man was no magician,
their goals should not conflict.  Now, though... he wasn't sure.  Ambition, yes, but
not simple.  "Why not produce the real king?" he asked.  "Even drugged or enspelled
to be your puppet, he would be more convincing than that golem."
     Korneth's lip curled in a sneer.  "The 'real king' no longer exists, and he was
pathetic to begin with."  He dismissed the point with a wave of his hand.  "And it is
not your concern.  Do not think to usurp authority to question or command.  Your only
business is to do as you are told.  In this case, to cast the glamor."

On the Isle of the Eye:

     Sedalia waited, holding one end of his tie and turning slowly in place.  He was
fairly sure he was still in the same place.  And beginning to suspect that he had
made more than one complete turn.  Blast these trees!  They all looked alike.
Somewhere out of sight, Gissanniah hesitated.  Not the first time.  What was she
seeing?  The young woman was observant and intelligent, but he wanted to be seeing
for himself.  Still, he shifted his grip to accomodate another turn, she was the more
nimble of the two of them and better suited to dodging around trees.
     Two definite tugs.  The signal.  Senator Sedalia began to follow his silk tie
through the trees.


     Half the city was in flames.  The two managers sat their horses on the rise at
the edge of the river valley, looking down at smoke and ruin.
     "At this point, there isn't a thing we could do," Fandil said.  He shook his
head.  "Not even with magic.  They seem to have it under control--not spreading
further, at least--but I can't imagine how it spread so fast!"
     "Arson," Lenpro said.  "Fires started in several places at once."  He squinted
down at the city.  "Looks like the Military Academy was about in the center of the
burned area; it's all gone now."
     "I don't understand how people can do that," Fandil muttered.  "Arson--blind
     Lenpro was silent for a long moment, then started his horse forward and down the
slope.  "Maybe not so blind," he said over his shoulder.  "If someone wanted to
destroy the Andorian League, it looks like there's been a good beginning made."
     Fandil urged his horse to catch up.  "Just burning down the Academy won't--"
     "And driving a wedge between the Aruaki and the normal humans," Lenpro reminded
him.  "And more things, I have no doubt, that we haven't found yet."
     "Who would want to destroy the League, and why?" Fandil demanded.  "Surely even
the Delarquans or the Karnhorns wouldn't--"
     "Why not?" Lenpro asked.  "And there are probably other enemies out there that
we don't happen to know about."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

You know Joe, I'm sure that you had all the best intentions, but after seeing what
happened to Caylon with Moldraun's barbeque, I had to pass.  I'm sure that you put
great time and effort into that grilled tuna melt, but I wasn't taking any
chances...had to pass.  And now I see Suzette is laboring over her stove to surprise
me with a special sauce for her always miraculous pancakes.

I will just have to try to resist until the fight is over.  But she does make a
pretty good pancake.  I hope I can manage.


                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SOLDIER 22, who flew up 12 points in the rankings after mashing 
KETTELMAN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  SHORT ORDER JOE lost to BORDERLINE and drops 7 points. 
It's a proud day for the MENAGERIE stable, as their warrior, IRIS, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and 
avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, HEART BREAKER would be president.  
Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, 
CNUT CNUKLZ was mashed by FLESH FLAYER, who let CNUT CNUKLZ know that killing members 
of ULTRA-VIOLENT is a no-no.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your 
ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in CALEAM have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Kettleman -- Wow, I surprised myself with that fight.  I think that may be my
favorite weapon.  Don't take that loss to heart. *grin*  I've seen what you can do
when you get the initiative. -- Heart Breaker

Short Order Joe -- Mmm...pork cracklins.  Rendered out pork fat with skin attached
and salt.  The best ones still have hair on 'em. -- Flesh Flayer, amateur butcher

Cnut Cnuklz -- If you hadn't stood on Bone Crusher saying 'Touche!' he might have
made it to the infirmary on time.  Enjoy sucking his bones. -- Deep Thought

Ultra Violent -- Hey, I only hit him in the leg!  He looked okay when they took him
out.  How was I to know that Bone Crusher had a glass thigh.  Just to make up, I'm
sending you a case of apples.  I hear they keep the doctors away.  Yeah. -- Cnut

Moldraun, et al -- We was told that the all-basher arena is a regular arena, not a
contest.  Of course they keep talking about prizes in the forums, so who knows. --

Kettleman -- would that be winter borscht or summer borscht?  And don't forget the
shashlik!  I'll bring the vodka. -- Cnut

Soldier 22 -- Another clone!  Enough with the clones already! -- Justin Thyme

Corot Toro -- I've come to the conclusion that red is not my color, but I did notice
that it looked good on you.  Not perhaps so much red, though. -- Dink (everyone's an
art critic) Gruntling

Skrumpy -- Sorry pal.  You just had too many strikes against you.  But you can always
prove me wrong.  Good luck. -- Calvata

Dink Gruntling -- Ha.  I'll give you gruntling, major DIS-gruntling.  Perfectly
decent stewed chicken.  So it would've been better with garlic, onion will do.  But
now!  Rice, peas, carrots.  Orange, blah-green.  Ordinary color choices, obvious,
hackneyed, totally without interest.  It should have something like... red peppers,
as red as you can get them and perhaps some purple eggplant.  Maybe yellow squash,
but maybe not, it needs a sharper yellow.  Difficult.  Lemon peel?  It will make the
taste, ah, unusual, but too bad.  Black beans on the side, perhaps?  Pearl onions (no
rice, don't want conflict in shades of white); varnish them and prop them up on
toothpicks, carefully placed to balance the colors.  How can people not understand
that the visual component of a dish is critically important? -- Corot Toro

Calonymus -- No way I'm going to do grilled kidneys.  Liver, maybe, if you get me a
fresh one (not MINE, dammit) and some really good onions. -- Short Order Joe
P.S.  And no, I will NOT do mountain oysters.  Gods, the things some people ask for!

Flesh Flayer -- Hard to peel a thing pancake, isn't it?  But if you're nice, I'll do
you a filleted trout.  I could've sworn there was only one ell in deboned trout.  Oh,
well, if you want it with two ells... maybe I will and maybe I won't.  Let me think
about this. -- Suzette Creppay

Heart Breaker -- (reeling back, aghast)  Catsup?  You would put CATSUP on my roast
beef with rosemary and red wine?  Gods, woman, you broke my heart! -- Kettelman

Homer Wise -- MINCE meat?  For PIE?  Not a chance, sugar daddy.  I'm a pastry cook,
not a garbage man. -- Spitzin

Calonymus -- I know ginger's tricky, but I had to try something or I would've ended
up with my sister--you do NOT want to eat at her house--sneaking in curry powder.
For waffles?  I don't THINK so! -- Suzette

Calonymus -- Actually, though my clientele don't go for it, I favor stir-fry.  Just
not the Mongolian kind. -- Short Order Joe

Caylon -- Zither?  What an intriguing notion!  Perhaps you should get together with
my sister, who does wooden xylophone. -- Moldraun

Calvata -- If you want to discuss the early Seam archives with the Saint, Keeper of
All Kinds of Stuff, she might be glad to get 'em. -- Temp Ed.

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
