Istoreth, Skaithvarn:

     The guards hustled them away from the waterfront and up a steep street to the
next level of buildings.  They weren't hostile or aggressive toward their charges,
but it was plain that they meant to be obeyed.
     Raoul cocked an eye at Berdan, who was walking next to him and breathing a
little heavily.  "You know who this Lord Dankilvan is?  What his position is here in
Istoreth?"
     The ex-assassin shook his head.  "Not to be sure of it.  Istoreth is ruled by a
council of lords, and I suppose he's one of them, but...I don't know which one."
     "Looks like we'll find out soon," Jeri remarked as the leading guards turned
through a gateway.
     They passed through a courtyard lined with small evergreen trees that had been
pruned into the shapes of fantastic creatures.  The building beyond was large and
foreign-looking.  Windows and doors had pointed tops and elaborate fretwork filled
with sly faces around them, the columns of the portico were shaped like tree-trunks
and done with such care and detail that it was possible to identify the type of tree
used as a model.  They were hurried through halls so filled with rich-colored carpets
and rich-colored tapestry wall hangings and richly inlaid furniture made of rich and
exotic woods that everything became a blur, a sort of visual indigestion.  Only the
occasional detail penetrated the dazzle:  an exquisitely curved vase the color of the
sky in a dream that stood quietly in a niche, a single white rose lying on a table, a
statue of a slim dog like a miniature greyhound that suddenly stood up and stepped
toward them, ears cocked curiously.
     They came out on a terrace that looked over the harbor and the Trier Sea beyond.
There were trellises of roses, and overhead screens to make shade, a fountain
rippling and flinging rainbows into the air, and benches, a table, a decanter of wine
and several glasses, and Lord Dankilvan.
     It was impossible to guess his age.  For one thing, he looked like having a lot
of elven blood.  High elven blood, the kind that was tall, thin, and blond, Araoi.
After the extreme richness of the furnishings in the house, he was dressed with
surprising plainness.  Silk, of course, but subdued in color, maybe gray or some
grayed shade, it was hard to tell because it kept changing subtly in the changing
light, but plain.
     Raoul noticed that the guards didn't follow them onto the terrace.  Either this
man was very trusting, or he figured he could handle any trouble they made.  It would
make a difference which.
     "You declared yourselves Andorian when you docked," he said.  "Very well.  Tell
me about this man Peranis and what he is up to."
     "You met him?" Berdan asked.
     "He...approached me.  With a book he wanted to sell.  I have books of my own and
did not desire his.  He became angry.  Desperate, too, I think.  What is he doing,
what is he likely to do if pushed to it?"
     "He's making trouble," Raoul said flatly.  "He's a renegade assassin--"
     Dankilvan's expression chilled.  "Any trouble Andoria gets into because of its
foul Assassins' Guild is well deserved.  But I will not have you drawing Istoreth
into it."
     "We're trying to prevent that," Raoul said quietly.  Was there any point in
telling this man that King Mickeal had outlawed the Assassins' Guild?  Probably not.
After all, it had been outlawed once before and had come back.  "We want to catch
Peranis and destroy his book."
     "Not keep it for your own use?"
     "No."
     Dankilvan was silent for a long moment, one hand resting lightly on the stopper
of the decanter.  Raoul noted that the stopper was formed from some kind of crystal
as full of rainbows as the falling water and wondered if it had magical properties.
Finally the Istorthene said, "I turned this Peranis from my presence once he had said
his piece.  The other Lords of Istoreth, advised by me, gave him no hearing at all.
Eventually he was ordered to leave the city as a pernicious nuisance.  He did leave.
There was no boat departing for Alastari at that time, and a man answering his
description passed out through the south gate and took the road to Leemith."  An
expression of distaste passed across the Istorthene's face.  "They may have met his
demands in Leemith.  The Leemin are capable of anything."  With emphasis, he
repeated, "Anything."
     Raoul sighed.  "Then I guess we follow him to this Leemith place.  Can you tell
us anything about it?"
     "I can provide you with an escort who has some knowledge of the place,"
Dankilvan said.  "We employ Alastarians here--gladiators--for special jobs.  I offer
you a Delarquan woman, Hallie O'Dene.  You will find her knowledgeable, and reliable.
If you can bring yourself to work with a Delarquan."
     Before Berdan could utter the protest Raoul saw developing, the gladiator said,
"I'll work with anyone who can help me get the job done."

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hello, Iaye!

It is with great shock and surprise that I find myself your Duelmistress on the very
turn of my return.  I was just coming back for a few turns to polish up my rusty
fighting skills before the tourney (all those naps and treats I've been indulging in
have dulled my reflexes).  But I guess the commission thought it would be
entertaining to match me against the DM on my first turn back (or it's the complete
lack of challenger champs here).  In any case, I'm the top dog (pun intended).  I
suspect I'll be randomly matched against Sonic Taco or Cherko, there being no
challenger champs to challenge.  I'm hoping it's the later since I expect Cherko is
the better teacher by far.  In the meantime, I intend to enjoy myself.  Anyone know
if the DM gets any perks?  Dinners?  Massages?  Anything?

Duelmistress Gazelle Hound

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to IAYE once again!  It seems so recently people were saying TRIP 
OUT was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved them up 1.  I guess they're washed no 
more...  What's with SONORA SARA?  She actually beat TRIP OUT's HOT JELLO LUV, and 
walked away with 12 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at RED DOG GANG.  
CHERKO lost 8 points to TECK WEE SEAH.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CHERKO 
will provide more easy wins...  IAYE, set your sights on NOBLE ASSASSIN.  He'll be 
happy to entertain all requests after defeating GAZELLE HOUND.  SONIC TACO looked 
pretty Duelmasterlike as she took IAYE's top spot with 98 points.  Now, what will 
GAZELLE HOUND do?  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was GAMEHENDGE.  The bums at KRYNNIANS II couldn't face the 
challenges from GAMEHENDGE!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in GREAT DANE?  
His 4-3-0?  DOG DAY AFTERNOON ain't talkin', but he's got 25 points.  I hate going to 
the effort of writing about the kind of fights that SONIC TACO gets in.  She fights 
people like DUMB, DUMB, 11 points below.  I thought SONIC TACO showed great skill and 
promise when she subdued DUMB, DUMB.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of IAYE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Who will dare fight 
TAR'GYT, after he returned from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 1-2-1 is 33, and has 
he points) Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die 
so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Soultaker -- Hi, cutie!  ;) -- Ivy

Teck Wee Seah -- Thanks for everything...well, I could have done with something more
useful than the parry skills, but I've accepted that those useless things are
actually my favorite learn (sigh) so I don't blame you. -- Gazelle Hound

Supa Dupa Fly -- I guess it's back to the aerobics training for me...then I'll be
back. -- Great Dane

For Sale:  2 Medium Shields.  Never used, and only dropped once. -- Tar'Gyt,
Krynnians II

Tar'Gyt -- You'll get one more use outta them, your early fight today was
postponed...until tonight. -- Kayel'be, mgr. Krynnians II

Gazelle Hound of Dog Day Afternoon is Duelmaster???  Way to go, Dudette! -- Lenpro
(visiting to reminisce)

Wrestlemaniacs...Kyrannians II... -- Don't I remember you guys from "way back"? --
Lenpro

Sloth -- Ouch, you are a tough one.  One of us will get you.  We like a challenge. --
Ping Hao

Firedog -- The first cut is the deepest. -- Pauguk

Dark Chocolate -- Thanks for the offer but we must be careful.  Master is from the
Karnhorn Empire, where slavery is legal.  And where death is the penalty for helping
a slave escape.  This week is a good week.  I killed the Polite Beggar, and master is
pleased with that.  He's even giving me extra food rations this week.  The only thing
I don't like is having to worship the Karnhorn god, Kjarran.  Very distasteful.
We're all slaves here at the Blade and Blood guildhouse. -- Danse Macabre

Sonic Taco -- Ah, I am sure that if he thought of it (only one thought per day, and
he this morning he thought he would eat an egg), Dumb would be grateful for that
loss.  Apparently he has delusions (if a brain so empty can entertain a delusion, or
do delusions amuse themselves?) of challenging Life of Osksi for Most Regular-Arena
Losses upon graduation. -- Goff

Darr -- You're kidding, right?  You walk up, loom over me, smack me a couple of
times, and that's IT?  That's the fight?  Huarache. -- Sonora Sara

I eat Mercenaries for breakfast.  Maybe Dumb should try it, instead of silly old
eggs. -- Cherko
P.S.  Maybe we should tell him that he doesn't have to eat the shell, but it's too
much fun watching him get pieces of it stuck in his teeth.

Pauguk -- Looks like we were a pair, doesn't it? -- Firedog

Abdul Aziz -- Better men than you have abandoned their religion for me. -- Dark
Chocolate
