On the shores of a lake:

     Senator Sedalia and Gissanniah stood side by side on the shore and looked
around.  Across the water, along the shore each wah, at the woods behind them.
Mostly pine woods, where the forest on the Isle had been mostly broadleaf trees.
     "So, we're not on the Isle anymore, are we?"
     Sedalia shook his head.  "No.  Ah, do you feel that you should, perhaps, have a
small black dog at this point?"
     "What?"  She turned to stare at him.  "Why would I have a dog with me?"
     "Ah.  Well... just a passing thought," the senator said.  "But I do wonder if
we're still even in the same world as the Isle.  Well, we must be, so maybe I should
say, are we still in the same world as... Andor.  Iaye.  The places from which we
have come."
     "That might take some finding out."  Gissanniah looked around again, then
gestured to the left.  "Let's get moving and see what we can find out."
     Sedalia looked and shrugged.  Nothing to distinguish one direction from another,
so what difference did it make which way they went?  "Why not?" he said.

Tarrgir:

     Fandil stared at the man--he claimed to be an officer in a fire-control company-
-in shock and consternation.  "You didn't even TRY to put it out?"
     "Why should we?" the fireman answered.  "That 'military academy' was a hotbed of
beast-men and elves, agents of oppression of the true people of Convincia.  No skin
off OUR nose if they burned down."
     "But... fellow citizens of the Andorian League--"
     "That's a joke!"
     "But--"
     Lenpro put a hand on Fandil's arm.  "Leave it, my friend.  This man will have
good reasons for his position, and argument never changed anyone's mind."
     "But--"
     "The so-called 'Andorian League' is run by the elves and the beast-men," the
fireman said.  His tone was deadly serious.  "They set up a whole GUILD of spies and
assassins to enforce their rule and tried to persuade all us true humans that being
an assassin--that SCUM--was 'noble' and worthy of admiration!  What can you think
about people like that except that they're sick and wicked?"  He gestured at the
smoking remains of the military academy.  "So we're cleaning them out, and high
time."
     Fandil seemed incapable of response, which Lenpro decided was just as well.  The
old mage was a exceptionally idealistic man, and he believed in the Andorian League.
Lenpro believed in the League--or some form of union--also, but he was, he hoped,
honest enough to admit its flaws and inequities.  The League had been conceived as a
counter to the Delarquan Federation, but these days he thought people forgot that it
was not THE counter, not the only possible workable response.  And in a way, this
man's grievances were valid, or at least had elements of truth in them.  The king and
many of the highest lords had elven blood, a lot of it in some cases, and the Aruaki
did seem to be, at the least, very prominent in the military, besides occupying a
large and fertile territory within the League lands.  Add to that the Assassins'
Guild, the blackest blot on the Andorian culture, and he could see how it would look
to a normal human who spent most of his time working on a farm.  And with the total
disinterest shown by the king and the central government in recent problems....  He
sighed.  "I see where you're coming from," he said to the fireman, "but I don't think
the violence of your actions is going to do you much good in the long run."  He held
up his hand to stop the man's protest.  "In the end, violence may be necessary--who
can tell UNTIL the end?  But this is the beginning, and it's a bad precedent to set.
People will see this as bloody rebellion rather than rational protest."
     "The only people we care about are--"
     "What if the Delarquans or the Karnhorns come pouring over the borders to 'quell
turmoil that might spill over into their lands'?" Lenpro asked.  "If you've destroyed
the military, who will you call on for defense?"
     "Oh."  The fireman was silent for several minutes, obviously considering the new
angle.  Eventually he said, "We don't need to worry about the Delarquans, they'd have
to come through Ardivent and the Aruaki Clanholds to reach us.  But the Karnhorns...
might be a problem.  Huh.  Maybe we'd better think about this."
     "Do," Lenpro said.  "And remember that you COULD turn on your Aruaki and elven
allies later and destroy them--an act worthy of any assassin!  But if you destroy
them first, they'll never be allies."
     "We'll think about this," the fireman said again.
     "Do."  Lenpro took Fandil's arm and drew him away before he could make any of
the protests that were visibly forming in his mind.

Andor:

     Herlas cast his spell of convincing illusion on the golem-king, and it was a
good one if he said so himself.  Not that he would say it; for the first time in a
life that had contained many questionable and self-serving acts, he was deeply
ashamed of his work.  He wasn't sure why; he was not, after all, some kind of wild
patriot.  Was he?  Why had Korneth insisted on parading this fake king through the
streets of Andor?  Herlas had to be part of the parade in order to stay close to the
target for his spell, and it made him uncomfortable.  People lined the streets, but
there was no cheering.  No catcalls, either, just sober silence.  Or sullen silence.
Maybe some of them did believe they were seeing the king, but that didn't make them
happy.  The king was a stranger, hadn't been in Andor for years, and had done nothing
for 'his' country during those years.  Why should they be glad to see him?
     The golem rode in a carriage, waving occasionally but attempting nothing more.
Herlas had advised that minimalist stance; the golem just wouldn't have been
convincing if it had tried to smile.  Odd, really.  There were plenty of golems
around these days that couldn't be told from true-born people, so why hadn't Korneth
gotten one of the better ones?  Did he WANT to be found out?
     "That is not the king."  The voice was low, positive, dangerous.
     Herlas's hands twitched on the reins of the horse he was riding just behind the
carriage, but he managed (he hoped) a suitably casual air as he glanced to the side.
Damn.  Lady Protector Sir Crystal Fireblade, a royal knight.  He hadn't realized she
was in town.  Did Korneth know?  More important, what was he, Herlas, going to do?
The lady knight had a formidable reputation and had been pledged to serve the king
directly as his protector.  Hundreds of different calculations of the odds of this or
that tumbled through the mage's brain.  Finally he shrugged.  "No.  I argued against
this display, but..."
     "Where IS the king?"
     "I don't know.  I asked, early on.  Didn't get a clear answer, and... it was
made clear to me that I shouldn't ask again."
     A faint, ladylike snort.  "Probably not."  She was silent for a moment.  "I went
with the king to the Isle--some time ago.  He vanished.  Completely vanished.  I have
been hunting for him since then, on the Isle and in other places that can be reached
from there.  At first, there were rumors that he might have passed through.  Nothing
I could trace.  Then fewer rumors, then none.  Finally I came back."  Her voice was
bitter, and still dangerous.
     "I have heard some people say--whisper--that the king has sought his own
happiness in some other dimension where he can still have his princess wife with
him," Herlas offered.
     "If that should be true, I think the less of him for it," she snapped.  "It
isn't a king's business to seek his own happiness, especially at the expense of his
responsibilities to his people."
     Herlas did not say that such a sense of responsibility was hard to imagine.
Once it would have been, but lately he was beginning to wonder.  Still, if the king
truly was gone--or dead--and without heirs, what was there left?  "What do you
propose to do?" he asked.
     "It was not the king's intention to abandon Andoria, on that last trip to the
Isle," she said slowly.  "Mind you don't let your illusion slip!"
     Herlas adjusted it hastily.
     "So I think someone persuaded him--I do not know what means might have been
used, but it could have been done, I think--and whisked him away.  That person, I
will find."  Her hand clenched on the reins of her mount.  "Oh, yes, I will find him.
Or HER, if it was--"
     It was Herlas's turn to give warning.  The Grey Witch had ears everywhere.  "Do
not mention that person!"
     She took a deep breath and let it out slowly.  "Yes.  No names without proof."
     "And no vengeance without proof."  Gods, the irony that HE, Herlas of Zensu,
should be the one to argue prudence and fair dealing!  "And what good will it do
Andoria, when your vengeance has fallen on the deserving party?"
     "What?"
     "Who will be king then?  Or will the League fall apart and be subject to the
attacks of its neighbors--many of whom do not love it."
     "I hadn't thought beyond--  I don't know who will take the throne," the lady
knight said.  After a moment, she added, "We're facing a civil war, aren't we?"
     "I think so, yes.  That is why, one reason why, I have gone along with this
travesty."  He gestured at the golem.  "It buys a little time."

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, I'm back, and this time the boss is too busy to take my column from me.  Noble
Assassin isn't exactly what I'd call a formidable opponent, and I'm slightly
disappointed that I'll have to fight another stand-in if Calonymous doesn't show.
It's nothing personal, but it's hard to improve when facing the stand-ins.

Overall, we went 3-2 last week, and I think Borderline's bloodlust might be reined in
a bit--he left the boss's office looking awfully pale, anyway.  You'd think a guy who
has already fought his way out of the underworld would be a little less likely to
kill his opponent.

On the flipside, I don't think I've seen the boss flip out as badly as he did when
Dralion lost to the freaking Kung-Fu Master.  Poor guy's been on latrine duty all
week, and boss-man hinted that any more losses to stand-ins could result in the rest
of Dralion's fights being at night.  

Anyway, good luck this week, and I wish everyone who enters the upcoming tournament
the best of luck!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in CALEAM!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Cut this out and put it in your 
scrapbooks, MEDAL OF HONOR F7!  'Cause they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 3rd!  MVP award 
for HERSHEL WILLIAMS?  MEDAL OF HONOR F7's proud of him after beating COROT TORO and 
getting 16 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SUZETTE CREPPAY got smashed by 
HEART BREAKER, and lost 11 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most 
popular gal in all CALEAM.  She got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) 
Like, CALONYMUS must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from MENAGERIE.  
Does this guy have a death wish or what!  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome CALONYMUS.  Aren't STEEL CRUSADE 
proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours 
sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  STEEL CRUSADE was the most avoided 
team.  Is a 155-196-7 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why 
MENAGERIE's been avoiding STEEL CRUSADE so much?  Or is it just that they're too 
scared?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All CALEAM ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  CALEAM is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Borderline -- No, I will NOT make use of "Border Salsa" in my crepes!  Or is that
creppes?  Delicious pancakes, anyway.  I'm not saying I wouldn't do something
substantial with protein for a main dish, but I'm just not into salsa. -- Suzette
Creppay

Alegria -- Brutally attempting to kill the cook will not make your meal appear
faster.  Or better. -- Short Order Joe

Gut Buster -- HORRIS colors.  I can't stand them, and I just about busted my gut
reacting to them.  (covers eyes and half-swoons)  Take them AWAY. -- Corot Toro

Soldier 22 -- If you don't like beans, don't bring your whole crew to my kitchen.
What else could I offer two dozen appetites? -- Kettelman

Homer Wise -- Never again tell me that OLEO is "just as good" as butter. -- Spitzin

Ichabod -- It's probably the salsa.  Some people just can't handle it, get all
inflamed, you know?  Put him on a bread-and-butter diet, no tequila. -- Jorja

Carot Taro -- I don't know why we keep getting paired up, but I'll take the wins,
especially when I get 3 skills a fight.  Thank you teacher. -- Gut Buster
P.S.  Did you like my shoulder to shoulder shirt collar.  Long live the '70's!

All -- Here's a first:  Heart Breaker started out and went through the last tourney
0-3 as a male.  When he came back to Caleam he was a she.  Anyone ever had a warrior

sex change?  Well, he was a pretty boy and hid a love for Cher concerts.  Do I have
the first cross dressing Duelmaster?  Try not to kill him/her, he/she has Primus
numbers. :) -- Deep Thought

     No, it really isn't anything new, all warriors in a tourney are referred to as
     he, reguardless of what sex they truly are. -- NAIEI
