     "I wouldn't want easy," Sunflower told the vampire.  Not strictly true, all she
wanted right now was out of this... whatever.  Pocket dimension.  But any trick that
could startle her opponent was good.  Vampires were tricky to fight, and there was no
choice here but fight or die; a vampire wouldn't take a surrender.  Well, except to
kill the loser at more leisure.  But she, Sizzling Sunflower, was going to win.
     Which raised a question.  She pondered it as she parried the vampire's dark
blade in a shower of sparks, riposted, lunged and withdrew.  In this pocket
dimension, the nature of reality was, call, it suggestible.  Intuition told her that
letting the "suggestions" get too far with her would be a bad move.  But could she
use just a little?  Use the "Sunflower" part of her arena name against a vampire who
might not be able to bear sunlight?  She had noticed when they first entered this
place that there wasn't any true sun here; the sky was a bright gray, and that was
the source of the "daylight."
     Hmm.  This vampire was strong and fast, but not particularly skilled with a
blade.  Ah, make that, apparently not skilled.  She supposed it could be a ruse.  Her
gladiator's instincts told her it was no trick:  this vampire really wasn't a
swordmaster.  Probably didn't have to be.  Until now.
     Their swords crossed again, shrieking metal and the weight of the vampire's
strike jolting down her arm, but the blade, HER blade, flashed bright as the sun, and
the sparks this time were hot and golden.  The vampire reeled back, shrieking as
loudly as the dark blade had done.
     Sunflower pressed the attack.  A slash, and the vampire shied back, not as
confident as she'd been before.  A lunge.  Further retreat, and a stumble.  Another
lunge, a swerve as the fallen vampire kicked out at her.  Drive forward, keep the
creature on the defensive.  Hamstring, that's what she wanted.  Sunflower feinted for
the torso and then drove her sword--flaring hot gold again--into the vampire's leg.
     A scream such as she never wanted to hear again, a sudden cloud of oily black
smoke, and... nothing left.  The vampire was just gone.

West of Fratsfa:

     Elosjon heaved a sigh of relief when his feet touched firm ground again, and he
didn't care if Fandil heard him or not.  He had been afraid--no, he was afraid now.
In the tree, he had been terrified.  Of falling.  Of failing.
     The old mage gripped his arm, held one hand to his mouth briefly to signal
silence, and then pulled him away from the ravine, deeper into the forest.  Higher up
the mountain.
     After several minutes of silent walking, or at least walking without speech,
Elosjon figured he could risk speech.  "What about Redbud?" he whispered.
     "We keep going," Fandil said.  "She may, probably will, be fine.  And she's
doing a necessary job so that we can go forward and do a different and even more
necessary job.  Let us not waste her efforts."
     "Right, right.  The magician at Mountain Home."  He hesitated.  "I could be
wrong about Mountain Home.  I only have the word of Herlas of Zensu and he's, well,
his reputation isn't exactly--"
     "I feel sure that you ARE correct," Fandil said.  "All my instincts tell me so.
We will find an answer up there on the mountain.  If we get there soon enough."


     Orchid stared back toward the avenue and the slaughter.  "I don't believe it!
Those gladiators were waiting to kill the king--the golem they thought was the king.
How could they do such a thing?"
     "You saw how," the man beside her said.
     "Yes, but--"
     "Gladiators come all kinds, just like ordinary people," he went on.  "Some good,
some bad, and a lot of them on the fence.  And this hasn't been a good town for a
gladiator since the arena closed.  They were probably so glad to have a job that they
didn't look into it closely."
     "You're saying someone paid them to--?"
     "Of course."  He steered her into an alley just before a troop of mounted guards
rushed past.  "Very few people, gladiators or not, are genuine anarchist to kill what
they believe is the king just for... kicks."  He paused at the other end of the
alley, looked both ways, and hurried her across another street into an overgrown
     "But they must have expected the guards, why didn't they have an escape route
     "They were most likely told the guards wouldn't be a problem.  Don't you see?"
He stopped and turned to face her.  "They were set up to kill and to die."  He shook
her a little.  "Believe it, lady!  Lord Korneth doesn't care whose death he ordered,
and you will be a target if anyone noticed and recognized you.  Even if no one saw
you at the parade--any gladiator found in Andor today will be marked for death.  You
have to get out of the city!"

Readers:  I'm using Consortium managers and gladiators here simply because they're
available.  If anybody else wants to be mixed up in this, just say the word, by
personal, email, or diplo. -- the Scribe

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of CALEAM.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain in 
CALEAM, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top 
team--ULTRA-VIOLENT.  Practice pays for DISEMBOWELER, who pummelled SHIFTYEYED 
VOLUNTEER, to pocket 13 points.  In CALEAM, nothing is permanent (except Death), and 
we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, KETTELMAN.  So who's the team that's been walking 
into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of 
writing Spyreports for CALEAM?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Death Rattle -- Have you ever considered that you might actually be allergic to
beans?  That maybe you shouldn't even be trying to eat my Baked Beans with Brown
Bread? -- Kettelman
P.S.  And if you're going to keep doing it, try not to let loose with that cough in
public, okay?  It could give potential customers the wrong idea.

Gut Buster -- You just have no restraint, do you?  It's awesome to watch... the first
time.  After a while, it's more a case of "gruesome to watch." -- Short Order Joe

The Unforgiven -- Damned straight.  You keep winning, and that's unforgiveable. --
Corot Toro

Lithium -- Honest to pete!  I asked you to hand me the powdered sugar, not whatever
this stuff is.  It tastes... metallic, I guess, and it isn't helping the cookies at
all. -- Spitzin

Acid Peel -- Hmm... lemon, yes?  I could do something with lemon peel.  Raisins, a
little cinnamon maybe, rolled into a sweet dough, a sort of cinnamon-swirl bread with
a bit of a bite to it.  That might work. -- Pascella

Our congratulations to Gut Buster. -- Jorja and the Golden Canyon

Gut Buster -- I hear that the Golden Canyon is preparing an all-you-can-eat buffet to
see you off.  I'll bring the wine. -- Arenamaster Tohre
