     The branch, the branch, the branch in his mind all she could think was the
branch as she leaped to the branch which overhung the small garden plot.  Down she
dropped till she could touch the board leaning against the tomato cages.  Forge,

     Fredrick Scorsetro, while leaning over his bucket mixing ink for tomorrow's
edition of "Lapur a shop Keepers Prospective.", Motioned for Scribe Bertrand to come
     "Sir, I have found something of note.  I checked the archives of the city and
have the minutes of a meeting on a civil contract with the city of Lapur," said
Scribe Bertrand enthusiastically.
     "Let me see it," said Fredrick adjusting his glasses.

 Contractee X signed by Farnon Garthin, Secretary to Council of Lapur

 Contractor x Quiflex for Black Kelts

     "Sir this is a ridiculous contract.  I checked with some local contractors and
some old contractors at the time.  They said that with only 400 marks a month they
would be limited to 3 people 30 marks per week each and 40 marks for materials.  It
was ridiculous Sir so I checked and the contract was fulfilled.  And look at this I
wrote down the follow up contracts though for more money till the current 1 year
contract which is held in the name of some Guy Tiffinal and a Lord Protectorate named
Human Sacrifice.  Those Warriors sure chose strange fight names.  He was/is a manager
for Black Kelts.  So they have been cleaning the streets all these years.  His
operation runs out of a facility that backs up to the Black Kelts Market Square.  I
even found a map of the Square," said Bertrand all in one breath.
     "Whoa there Scribe, Catch a breath.  This looks very interesting.  I think you
have two lines of inquiry and you do know that the Black Kelts are here now!" said
Fredrick with a smile on his face.
     "Sir, I know they are here but, well, I mean, which way do you want to go.  I
can get current info on what they're doing or follow this." Said Bertrand feeling he
knew what was about to happen.
     "Well from the papers prospective a New/old Market square reopening is your top
priority," said Fredrick firmly.
     As Bertrand headed to the Black Kelts Market square things where already in
motion.  At the Square Wagons where arriving through the once locked gates of the
square.  Chestnut Street was crowded with wagons, drivers, tenders and miscellaneous
onlookers.  The smell of cooking was already wafting out as food was brought out to
the waiting wagons.  How could 100 wagons fit in there?  They went in but did not
come out.  Hawkers Way would occasionally be blocked then the commotion would start
     Trista stood in the horde of people selling "Lapur a Shop Keepers Prospective."
To anyone who was buying.  In the last two days she had made more than she usually
makes in a week.  She could not believe her good fortune.  She was also mystified at
the orderly progression with which the carts rolled into the North Prize Street
entrance to the Black Kelts Market square on Chestnut Street.  It seemed like the
Black Kelts where here to stay.  She hungered to go inside and see the activities but
losing a sale was not in her best interest.  So she continued to hawk her paper as
she saw Bertrand running breathlessly towards her.  She waved to him and tried to
garner his attention.
     Bertrand made a bee line for the young news girl.  "Hello Trista," said Bertrand
nearly out of breath as a bead of sweat dripped from his aquiline nose.
     "Hey Bertrand you out here for information for a story line." Replied Trista as
she made change for a customer.  You have it."
     "Know anything?" queried Bertrand.
     "Well all I know is there is a ton of people and wagons here and they go in but
none come out.  Are you going inside?" retorted Trista.
     "Defiantly!" said Bertrand as he hustled of to the gate.
     As Bertrand approached the gate he saw that the Wagon master was picking certain
wagons to come through and as he looked through the gate down the Prize Street alley
he saw that the gate at the South entrance was closed.  The wagon he followed began
its journey into the street as a man in a white robe leaned out to him with a very
sharp extremely menacing rapier to bar his path.  Bertrand swallowed noisily as he
looked over this lean faced man in sheer white robes.  Something was not right about
him.  His skin was smooth too smooth and nearly featureless.  The hands of the man
that extended from the robe where as white as fine marble veins and all.  Bertrand
was about to bolt when another man appeared quickly to interject himself.
     "Can we be of some assistance Sir?" asked Tiffinal the Arena manager for the
Black Kelts.
     "Umm yes, yes Sir I was wondering if I might gather some information for the
paper I write for." said Bertrand with hesitation not knowing if the straight
approach was the way to go.
     "What Paper do you write for." said Tiffinal in a mater of fact way.
     "Lapur a shop Keepers Prospective. Sir." Said Bertrand quickly.
     "Excellent, Excellent Please come with me and I shall give you the tour." Said
     Bertrand could not believe his good fortune as he asked the man his name 
and position.
     "My name is Tiffinal and I am the general assistant to the Purple Sage and
manage his team and assets here in Lapur. I am a man of many hats at the moment." 
Stated Tiffinal with a sigh.  "Now as you can see this is Prize Street which is the
avenue of entry to our market square which has its entrance in the middle of the
street off to the right.  As we pass through this gated archway we enter the open
court yard of the market square where we have many shop spaces for lease." Continued
Tiffinal as they negotiated through the street and arch past the wagons as they moved
towards the southern corner of the facility where a huge ramp was constructed going
over a wall into another area blocked from sight by the 5 meter walls.
     Bertrand could not help but remark as he saw the awesome walls and buildings
within the market square and their layout to support a shopping environment. He could
not help but smell the cooking coming from a building to the north and the noise of
hammering coming from a building just ahead and to his right.  He also became curious
of the circular tower which stood in the center of the square in his point of view
till he moved closer to the obvious kitchen where the smells where coming from he
realized the Tower was connected by a balustrade to another tower in the other
courtyard and that it was off center.  It was positioned to allow a cart to turn
right or left while entering the Square and most of the carts seemed to have turned
left to go up the ramp in that corner.
     "This is Luca's Kitchen and food is free for the moment. When I finish the tour
I recommend you have a bite to eat.  Going past Luca's Kitchen there where four large
20Mx20M buildings with the contents of carts lain inside.  He could see into them for
they all had what appeared to be open fronts however he saw sheets and sheets of
unbelievable amounts of glass to be placed in the openings.  The buildings all seemed
to be of sturdy stone with a smooth finish that he could not believe.  These stones
had no joints and no sign of being stacked it was like they had been iced like a
cake.  Two no three smaller independent buildings stood out in the more central part
of the market to allow traffic all around them.  Along the back wall of the 100Mx100M
Market were 4 more buildings and one of them seemed to already be occupied with
Sculptures of varying sizes.
     Tiffinal remarked as they neared the building, "This is Lord Protectorate Virgin
Blonde's studio.  He is a sculptor of some renown."
     They now made the turn back west towards the entrance of the Market square and
the huge ramp that was being used to move many wagons into the other courtyard.
Three buildings to his left and 4 buildings to his right seemed to make another walk
way however the fourth building and another building directly ahead seemed to be
unfinished since the huge ramp was in there place.  "It's much too dangerous to take
you to the ramp and that is merely storage, living facilities, and training grounds
for the Team and Staff." Said Tiffinal.
     Bertrand could not believe his good fortune and quickly asked a question before
his moment might slip away.  "Sir can I ask when you intend to reopen this facility."
     "We already are open and are merely finishing up some of the general touches.
We are looking for interested parties who would like to move or establish their
business in this Market in Shrieve Ward.  We believe that a secure shopping
environment in a one stop shop will attract many of the customers who do not wish to
run all over looking for their weekly purchases.  We believe that a secure market as
opposed to the transient tent cities that litter many cities will attract people and
their families to relax and enjoy shopping from all over Alastari." Said Tiffinal
with a broad smile on his sharp featured face and Pointed ears as though it was a
rehearsed statement ready for print in a Market Paper.
     Bertrand could feel the pull of this man who was a leader and felt that he was
being honest.  Bertrand asked and what of the existing merchants won't you be cutting
into their business." said Bertrand trying to draw Tiffinal out.
     "Yes," replied Tiffinal succinctly with another broad smile.
     "Oh," Stammered Bertrand quickly recovering to add a follow-up question.  "I see
all these wagons will you be running your own supply train also."
     "No," Laughed Tiffinal.  "We are decommissioning most of the wagons and will
merely use the leftovers to replace the ones we have in our street cleaning
business." Added Tiffinal.
     As they once again approached the Noisy Smithy and Luca's Kitchen Bertrand
ventured another question.  "And Sir will you be selling any of these
     "No, not at this time." Replied Tiffinal.  "Please enjoy the food at Luca's
Kitchen.  I must be off," Finished Tiffinal as he moved off to talk to some men and
seemed to point out Bertrand to them.
     Bertrand sauntered over to Luca's Kitchen to see what he might learn.  He was
feeling mighty pleased with himself all thoughts of contracts and street cleaning
merely a murmur in his brain.

     There was such a bustle from Arthur's Smithy to Luca's Kitchen.  Wagon and herd
tenders scattered all over the open grounds with the ambrosia of delicious smells
from all over Alastari emanating from their plates.  Conversation seemed minimal as
the sound of spoons scooping food from the plate was heard.  The only noise was
located in two spots in the courtyard around Luca's Kitchen.  The line that leads
into the kitchen was full of men and women with huge smiles on their faces raising
jubilant voices fantasizing as to what to do with their riches.  The cause of the
riches was the second source of the noise from the line of people carefully
controlled by ropes and fierce warriors in front of the paymaster.  This elaborate
system seemed equal to only some of the largest banks of Alastari or mayhaps the
treasury of its greatest lords thought the Scribe Bertrand with little true reference
points to draw on but his imagination. There where no great bags of coinage or sacks
of precious gems.  No the pay master sat at his station behind his table on which sat
nothing other than a gleaming guillotine.  The scribe Bertrand nearly stubbed over a
man eating as he pondered the Pay-Masters set up.  Bertrand moved closer to observe
the goings on oblivious to the overwhelming hunger he had earlier felt.  He moved
closer to observe the pay master and as he did the warriors shifted position with one
warrior moving directly in his line of sight to the table.  Bertrand moved to get a
better angle and was astonished to see the actual paymaster in action.  Bertrand
leaned against the wall of the Smithy watching the efficiency of the pay master.  As
a worker would step to the front of the line he would give his name to beautiful long
haired lass with a large book resting on a stand.  The worker would converse with the
women and then the women would shout to the paymaster 1 portion, 1 1/4 portions or
some other numerical statement.  The paymaster would then set an ingot of gold or
silver under the guillotine and slice a weight from the piece.  He would then place
the slice upon a scale to weigh it.  He would then grab small leather bag and add
jerries to the bag.  He would then place the slice in the bag and the worker would
approach.  The worker would then check the bag and its contents freely able to use
the scales if he so desired.  Once satisfied he/she would sign a book upon the pay
masters table followed by the paymaster's signature and one of the warriors initials.
Bertrand noticed the pay master's hands while reaching across the table to the book.
He had one short index finger.  This was obviously a learning experience for any
apprentice with this unusual pay system.
     Bertrand's stomach grumbled as he realized his hunger had not been abated.  He
began to make his way once more into the line at Luca's kitchen.  At the door way he
could see the lean man behind the serving line directing all the traffic through his
establishment.  He recognized some of the younger citizens of Lapur acting as the
wait staff and Luca he looked so familiar.  He was a tall thin man with a balding
head and a look of years upon him.  Bertrand was sure he had seen him here in Lapur
before in one of the open air markets selling his wares.  As Bertrand moved closer in
the line his stomach visibly grumbled as though it was anxious for this food.  All
manner of meat was cooked in the grill behind the counter and a plethora of pots
containing aromatic mixtures could only contribute to the hunger he felt in his soul.
Bertrand approached the serving line and was given a large tray.  Upon this tray
where placed a large plate, a small plate, a bowl, some silverware and a mug.
     Bertrand moved forward and began to choose some of the most succulent food he
had seen.  He selected a meat he had never heard of that the server called Turduken
and some potatoes that where sliced and baked in cheese.  A portion of long green
spears with a lemon butter mix was placed upon his plate.  In the smaller plate a
small loaf of bread with herbs baked into the crust.  Into the bowl a strange soup
which seemed to be white with pieces of some seafood in it and a hint of spice.  At
the end of the line was a large Barrel with a tap in it.  Some glorious brew filled
his mug with a foaming top.  This he recognized right away and could not help taking
a sip as he made his way to a place to eat. He was going to like researching this
Black Kelts team.

Somewhere in the Spirit Lands:

     "Okay," Cloudrider said, "so we work on Uncle Wolf's project."  He looked around
at the dim landscape of ferny plains.  "How do we do that?"
     Young Joan closed her eyes; he guessed she was consulting her ghost partner,
Selumia.  "There should be a....  Damn, it isn't clear at all.  A zone of
     Cloudrider looked around, pointedly.  There was no variation in the scenery in
any direction.
     "There will be such a zone when we expect it to be there," Nightwind said in the
back of Cloudrider's mind.  "The geography here is not fixed as it appears in the
Outer Lands.  Expectation and belief are critical."
     "Okay," Joan said, and he figured she must have heard the same thing from her
ghost.  "We're climbing a long hill here, and when we get to the top, we'll see the
zone of transition beyond it."
     Looking at the ferny ground ahead of him, Cloudrider saw that it was, indeed, a
long slope with a crest somewhere ahead.  He could almost see a top to it.  This was
a relief, to have a definite, clear goal.  "So, let's get walking," he said.

     The two not-humans, the nighthunter and the other, looked up as Blackwind and
Agro approached.  Blackwind had an idea that hot words had been exchanged, something
in their postures hinted at hostile confrontation between them.  Maybe that would
work in their--his and Agro's and Redfox's--favor, that their enemies weren't likely
to combine against them.  Or maybe the living versus whatever was a stronger factor.
Trying to calculate all the angles made his head ache.
     The taller creature, the Other, fixed a burning gaze on the gladiator from
Malcorn.  Literally burning, it felt like.  Blackwind wondered how long it would take
for his face to blister from the heat.  "Why are you here?" the Other asked.
     The nighthunter laid a paw on Redfox, extending its claws like a cat.  "This is
MINE," it whined, "you bound it, that proves it was meant for sacrifice even without
the Words!"
     The Other's face changed color, going from a not-really-human sort of mauve to
near-black, and its eyes dilated and glowed hotter as it turned on the nighthunter,
teeth--fangs--bared.  "You dared?  You have broken the ancient contract, and you
dared to involve ME in this transgression?"
     The claws flexed and dug in, drawing blood.  "This is MINE!" it said again.
Whining, protesting, obstinate as the stupid and fearful can be.
     The Other roared something in a language the gladiators didn't recognize.  The
nighthunter burst into flames and fled, wailing and screeching, with lingering shouts
of, "MINE!"
     "That is a fool, as it has always been," the Other said.  "But you set a trap
for it, did you not?"
     Blackwind remembered advice from long ago:  if you don't know what lies will go
over, tell the truth.  "Yeah, we did," he said.  "What we were told, things were
getting out of hand, rules were being broken.  We wanted... names."
     "And that gave you mine?"
     "If your name is Arhazul, yeah.  The name was mentioned."
     "A fool, and always a fool.  I will unmake it.  But that is for later enjoyment.
You have my name, one of them.  You have found me.  What do you intend to try here?"
     It occurred to Blackwind that the Other had never once looked at Agro, or
addressed the Croc, and maybe it couldn't even see the cold-blooded gladiator?  Maybe
it thought the "we" referred only to himself and Redfox.  Interesting, but no time to
test it right now.  "Don't know," he said, shrugging.  It was damned hard to maintain
the casual attitude, but he had an idea it was the right one here.  "We were just
told to gather information.  Someone's been messing with, I didn't get this exactly,
but with the way people's souls travel after they die?  Something like that.  We were
sent out to get some names."
     "And that gave you mine?"  The Other seemed to swell with wrath.  "I will unmake
it slowly and use the parts after in ways it will die to regret.  But to you I say, I
swear on the Crimson Gates of Hell, I have not been 'messing' with the movement of
souls.  There are certain rules to which all agree, that existence may continue.  I
do not transgress them."
     And the worst of that was, Blackwind believed it.  Whatever was going on with
the souls, this Other was not part of the problem.
     "Who dared suggest that I might be involved?"
     "Eh?  Well, that nighthunter you chased off.  It was the first one to mention
your name."
     "Not enough.  Who sent you to ASK that one?"
     Oh, shit.  Feuds among the immortal demons?  JUST what they needed to get sucked
into.  Blackwind hesitated.  Maybe he could finesse this--
     "It was a Dark Stranger from the Silent Place near Zuwayza," Redfox said.  His
voice was hoarse but steady.
     A sizzling sound.  The Other, too angry even to swear promises of retribution,
fury coming off it like waves of heat off a forge.  "Silent Place!" it said finally.
"It will be silent no longer.  There will be screams!  THEY traffic in souls, never
doubt it, and it is THEY who are breaking the Rules!  THEY will pay for this infamy."
     "Yes, well, we can take that message back to the people in charge--"
     "What people are in charge?  How can humans interfere in this?"
     "Whoever's doing it is interfering with humans," Blackwind pointed out.  "Only
reasonable we should try to get it straightened out."
     "Well... Lord Malcorn, and...."
     "Oh.  Yes, the Malcorn... He would.  Yes.  He has the right, and a right is also
a duty.  He would involve Himself, He must."  The flaming eyes narrowed.  "And He
will see to it that the blame falls on the guilty, and not on those such as myself
who have kept the agreements.  Yes."  A decisive nod.  "I will conduct my own
investigation into this transgression, and you will aid me, human."
     "I will make it a bargain, according to the rules.  The life of this one," it
lifted Redfox easily and shook him as a child might shake a doll, "in return for your
     "Ah, don't these rules say you can't kill him without permission?"
     A mouth full of fangs, in what might be a smile.  "I cannot KILL him, take him
as a sacrifice, without the Words, but any mortal astray in this realm is at risk of
other things.  Many other things.  Which I could do, if I wish, without any Words
being spoken.  Because his presence here at all is a kind of permission."
     "That sounds a lot like the argument that nighthunter was making."
     "The cases differ.  That one was in your world, but you are in MY world.  It
makes a difference, you see it?"
     "Yeah."  Boy, did Blackwind see it.  They were all over a barrel here.  Not just
Redfox, he himself was here where he was at risk of the 'many other things', and Agro
as well, if the Other ever figured the Croc was present.  "Okay, I guess I don't like
the other choice much, so, what do you want us to do?"

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Those betting on EQUESTORS lost their shirt, as EQUESTORS lost their 
fighting abilities:  1-4-0.  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a 
perceptive observation?) as WILL DUEL 4 MEAD can attest...  CLAN CROW posted a nice 
gain, to come in 6th.  Everybody loves a winner...  WILL DUEL 4 MEAD had cause to 
celebrate, after LIME got 24 points by beating COLOSSUS.  COLOSSUS certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to LIME and losing 13 points in the 
process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by CALLISTO, of 
VENUSIANS, who despite a 19-20-2 couldn't overcome LAPUR's Number 1.  Word has it one 
team in LAPUR is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll 
bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of METAL MINCERS should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of X-MEN, so did that sorry team shy from METAL 
MINCERS Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  
Whatever it is, COPPER COMPACTER is the most challenged warrior.  As a confidence 
booster, CUDDLE ME TENDER challenged RED BULL, down 24 points.  Do you also slay 
vicious rodents in your spare time, CUDDLE ME TENDER?  Yes, Virginia, sometimes the 
little guy wins, as RED BULL proved, beating 24 point higher CUDDLE ME TENDER.  
Them's the breaks, COPPER COMPACTER.  Expecting fair challenges from BOHICA is 
evidently too much to ask.  NEEDS SALT bested COPPER COMPACTER.  The whole thing 
leaves a bitter memory.  Take heed LAPUR, of the unprincipled action of RED HOT 
CHILI.  By challenging VINDOCOMUS, 19 points below her, RED HOT CHILI besmirches the 
noble art of dueling.  RED HOT CHILI defeated VINDOCOMUS with a point difference of 
19.  So this is what LAPUR calls a duel.  This will make an interesting tale.  Word 
has it HIMEKO suffered a romantic setback.  Note how she challenged BISHOP, 27 points 
hers senior.  The gods smiled upon HIMEKO, in hers upset fight against BISHOP.  
HIMEKO gets a win, 19 points, and a free drink on me.  (Next week, OK?)  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Fair play must not be 
a credo of FORCE OF NATURE, as A.A. SHOCK permanently removed PUFFY SCRUFF of BOHICA 
from the competition in a mismatched fight.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the 
match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in LAPUR is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing 
Spyreports for LAPUR?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Roadkill -- I have been walking memory lane... this Palin of yours... she reminds me
of another lady friend of yours... Cocaine Katie.  What ever happened to her? -- VV

Copper Compacter -- that win was just a loaner... I needed it back. -- Colossus

Iron Impacter -- I decree that from this day forth you shall be known as: Iron
"Billy-Ray Cyrus" Impacter--The One Hit Wonder.  OUCH! -- Kuan

could agree with! -- Dark Uncle

Oremaster -- Next time we dance, I want to lead. -- VV

BOHICA -- We will allow you this one down challenge since the notice was not posted
before your actions.  We have made our post and even 1 pt down challenge is
considered a down challenge by Black Kelts.  FE is irrelevant in a tourney
environment.  Too many warriors have hidden tourney FE. -- Tiffinal of Black Kelts

All, we recommend you stop using the Black Kelts as a free Library.  We would
appreciate it if in addition to skilling up your warriors as we do that you return
with some knowledge of your own if you have any. -- Tiffinal

Luke warm slightly congealed Chilli -- I do not appreciate your down challenge.  Now
that it's an up challenge you may have better luck for the powers that be frown upon
down challenging. -- John Courage
P.S.  You suck as a teacher.

My dear sweet Melissa -- Please Riddle me this what's short and annoying with a
critical eye at Short. -- Sonte Hinge

Yuri -- Well I feel the worse for wear.  Umm all I really must say to that thrashing
is Ouch and good show on the Blood Feud. -- White Robe
P.S.  You suck as a teacher.

All this is a Glorious time for the city of Lapur.  Business shall be good. -- Black
Kelts"Food for Thought Builds better brains" 

Mid Earth -- Congrats laddy on Fhrain graduatin.  None of my team has seen his finess
but if he be the example fer ye undergrads then he be doin a fine job of showin them
da way. -- Owsly

Chrome Cutter -- Nay I dannae have my eye on ya but now that ye pointed yeself out I
may have ta add ya to me list of potential tools to use in me shop.  (Cannae think of
anything to use a chrome cutter on though.) -- Smack O\'malley

Daisy Chains - Need someone to loosen those chains?  <wink>  Enjoy the skills. --
Fhrain the Trainer

Yuri -- Too hotly engaged my arse!  Someone glued the damn dagger to my belt! --
Luhar the Punk'd

Occy -- The only part of me not bandaged is my hands and fingers. -- Gilan the Mummy

Cuddle Me Tender -- I *tried*, dammit!  But you kept hitting me. -- Red Bull

Bishop -- Why do you keep moving off at an angle?  It's confusing.  Straight forward
and back or side to side, that's the way to do it. -- Horn Rock

Himeko -- Mead is over-rated, and besides it isn't good for your complexion.  Also,
it's fattening.  So forget the mead, and let me cuddle YOU tender, eh? -- Mad Dog
P.S.  I promise not to foam at the mouth when kissing you.

Meat Popsicle -- Sounds unpleasant.  What about frostbite? -- Cloudshadow

Necroshade -- An umbrella in a graveyard?  Isn't that bad luck? -- Waterstone
