     Fandil started by simply opening his magical awareness, a sort of sixth sense,
to the city.  This was not the most pleasant experience, because Fratsfa was a very
old city that had been steeping in magic of many kinds for centuries.  The background
was a muck of bits and pieces of spells accumulated, pressed together by the addition
of more magic on top of it, deformed by that pressure and by age, uniting into
compound magical structures that no magician had ever visualized, almost breeding
with each other.  Fratsfa had the highest incidence of spontaneous magical activity
of anyplace other than Chaos-contaminated ground such as the marshy plain near Delarq
Tor.  And when it was happening without the guidance of even a deranged mind, you
didn't need the residual effect of Chaos Magic to twist the results into strange
forms.  Some parts of the background magic here were alive.
     Against this background, real, living, practicing magicians moved like thieves
in a crowd:  sometimes you saw them, sometimes you didn't.  Picking out possible
allies and enemies wasn't easy.  Fandil snorted.  If it was easy, they wouldn't need
     He began to sort and filter his impressions, and the first thing he discovered
was another magician, also scanning.  Younger, though no child.  Not a clear
signature, male, human, mixed motives.  But strong, and even with mixed motives, he
might be willing to make himself useful--
     A blast of energy like a portculis falling, like a guilotine.  Like being hit in
the head with an axe, but not, Fandil decided as he picked himself up off the floor,
quite as bloody and final.  What had happened was clear enough:  some magician of
considerable power had broken the beginning of contact between Fandil and the young
mage before it had a chance to develop.  Possibly had killed the young man, which
would be unfortunate.
     The old mage extended his magical sense again, not as easily--even thinking hurt
at the moment.  The magical background was seething, the Fratsfan magicians had
either gone into hiding or were doing the equivalent of standing on their doorsteps
shouting at each other.  Not helpful.  Well, looking back at the brief contact, it
was not Fandil's impression that the young man was HERE.  Within fifty miles,
probably closer, but not right here in the city.  North and west.  Maybe in... Andor?
A hopeful thought, they could use a contact in the capital.  He reached out--and came
up against a wall of magic.  No contact with Andor was possible from here.  He would
have to go closer physically if he wanted to pursue that connection.  Or wait until
the arcanum cleared, this kind of barrier took amazing amounts of energy to sustain.
     But he had a feeling, growing stronger by the moment, that they didn't have the
time to wait.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Oh boy, I can't believe I'm finally here.  King of the Hill, head of the list, cream
of the crop...a number one.  Sorry, getting a little carried away.  I'm so happy to
be here, and so is Deep Thought, as this gives him the DM in two of his three arenas,
the third being the all basher in DM 20.  Anyway, I hope everyone had a good
Christmas and have a Happy New Year. -- Heart Breaker

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for CALEAM.  What was the name of that team 
who got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 185-96-11 you ask?  (Sure)  MENAGERIE's their 
name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for KNEE BREAKER?  ULTRA-VIOLENT's proud 
of him after beating SUZETTE CREPPAY and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  DEATH RATTLE got smashed by JEREMY, and lost 21 points!  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think HEART BREAKER should let HERSHEL WILLIAMS be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said 
CALEAM's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Welcome Wench?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  ULTRA-VIOLENT was the most avoided team.  Is a 
67-36-1 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are MEDAL OF HONOR 
F7?  ULTRA-VIOLENT, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept 
an invitation!  Can GOLDEN CANYON's SUZETTE CREPPAY be more popular than me?  She was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Knee Breaker -- You're going to have to re-think your interpersonal strategy.  I
don't actually mind that you like to hit on people, sometimes I do, too, but the
bruises!  The colors are very unsatisfactory.  Unharmonious and rather muddy, when
you get down to it.  I'm sure if you and I worked on body painting together, we could
come up with something much more exciting. -- Corot Toro
P.S.  Even the "paint it blue with woad" business was better than the muddy purples
and greens of simple bruises.  You must see this.

Death Rattle -- You're getting a good rhythm there, and it's true that I could get
into banging out a percussion line on the big kettles (what else IS a kettledrum but
kettle with a lid, hmm?), but...I don't know.  It would take a lot of work to put
together something that wouldn't be booed off the stage--  Wait, if the audience
could be induced to throw usable vegetables, it might be worth the effort anyway.  My
first love will always be soups and stews, you see.  Always.  Um, probably always,
unless I find a woman who is really good with dumplings. -- Kettelman

Hershel Williams -- Shellfish.  No.  I don't care for shellfish.  I figure if it's
something that you have to be really hungry to want to eat, then it isn't my bowl of
pancake batter. -- Suzette Creppay
P.S.  Yes, okay, I *have* heard of some kind of pancakes with clam sauce type of
thing, or maybe it's some other dish, clam sauce with pasta, I don't know.  But you
see, that's the whole deal:  I don't know and I don't want to.

Flesh Flayer -- How about "fish filleter"?  I could do some good stuff with filleted
catfish in a tempura batter.  Pop 'em in the deep-fat frier and serve 'em hot with
tartar sauce, coleslaw on the side. -- Short Order Joe

Homer Wise -- Ah!  And does your wisdom, especially as applied to the Home Arts,
which I would guess from your name to be your field, does this wise-ness tell you
that one of the wise men *actually* had filled his casket or treasure chest with
butter cookies?  I bet you didn't know that, but it's seasonal, and what else would
you take a kid but cookies?  Well, there are other things I suppose, but the old
"gold, frankincense, and myrrh," for a KID?  I don't think so. -- Spitzin
P.S.  And if I can shift the darned cat out of the good chair, I will demonstrate the
superiority of butter cookies by eating a handful of them right there, with a glass
of milk.  Ha!

Knee Breaker -- (snorting soup out his nose)  Good one! -- Kettelman

Short Order Joe -- Sorry about the "brutally attempting to slay her foe," I wasn't
fighting any differently than usual.  Aunt Flo must have been visiting.  I'll take
some idol before our next fight. -- Flesh Flayer

Suzette -- Mmmm, pancakes make my mouth happy, but you can hold the nut sauce,
that's filthy. -- Death Rattle

Any chance of combining these tiny arenas into one?  Three teams will get old
quickly.  I quit running my team in DM 4 because it was just me and Jorja, and my
fighters were getting smoked. -- Deep Thought
