     Lord Jerrofil, whose manor was near Point, supplied the horses and--he insisted
on it--an armed escort.  "The roads aren't safe," he said.  "There's been a lot of
banditry, random violence," he sighed, "and beggars everywhere.  I can't remember a
time like this, not here.  Down south, during and right after the Rirorni War, but
not here."
     "We aren't helpless," Adie told him sharply.
     "I'm sure you're not," Jerrofil agreed, "but unless you want to exhaust
yourselves by fighting hourly, you will accept the escort, my lady.  Then you might
not have to fight at all; few of the bandits are so desperate--yet--that they will
attack a party of armed men.  Also, well, you might need a guide.  The earth tremors
have disrupted the roads, and some areas are impassable now."
     Fandil raised an eyebrow.  "I hadn't realized the tremors were so severe, away
from Krael.  The ones three days ago--"
     "Were not the only ones, or the worst ones," Jerrofil said.  "Things have been
especially bad around Seam, but according to the latest news from travelers, anywhere
within sixty miles of Point and Krael has been hit to some degree.  Some buildings
have fallen or are no longer stable, trees have come down here and there, at least
one stream has changed course, but the worst are the bridges.  Most of them are
fallen or unsafe."
     Adie frowned, one hand going automatically to twist a lock of hair.  It was
perhaps forty miles from Point to Aruak City, a day's ride if they met no problems...
though it was well into the morning, and she had hoped for an early start.  But it
was beginning to sound like "forty miles over good roads" was too optimistic.  Her
mouth set in a stubborn line.  If anyone... such as Khaldren, thought such obstacles
would turn her aside, that person was in error.  But maybe it would be better if old
Fandil didn't have to undertake what sounded like a wearing journey, and besides,
someone should keep an eye on Cho.  She turned to Fandil.
     "Don't even think it," the Ardiventi mage said.  "I'm coming with you."
     Adie looked at him for a minute, then shook her head.  Not in denial, but she
knew an immovable object when she saw one.  Fandil was coming.  So be it.
     "And best if we get moving quickly," the old man went on.  "We've got a window
here where we can leave unobserved, we should take it."
     "How--?" Jerrofil began.
     "Cho is creating a distraction.  We don't figure it will hold the Kraelians's
attention for more than an hour, though, so...."
     "Yes, of course.  I commend you to my Captain of Horse, Tollisker," Lord
Jerrofil said, "and he to you.  May you guard each other for safe journeying."
     The captain, a young man who looked Convincian rather than Aruaki, nodded
soberly and signaled to his men,  Five horsemen led the way out of Point, two fanned
out to the right and two to the left, and another five brought up the rear, Tollisker
riding with the two mages in the middle of the mounted group.  "Have you a preferred
route, my lady and lord?"
     "Whatever will get us there most quickly," Adie said.
     Tollisker looked to the side, though she didn't think he was studying the
overgrown field.  After a moment, he looked back and said, "We will begin by trying
the straight road, then, and diverge only when we must."

     Cho had only promised Fandil an hour to get clear in, and he was glad of that. 
The illusion he had created to distract the Kraelian mages was fighting his control
like a live thing, and he feared it might become one if he fed any more power into
it.  That was the trouble with doing any kind of magic in an area where the lines
power and reality were so tangled together:  you could never be sure what would
     He forced his unreal leviathan back from the seawall that protected lower Krael
from the lake.  Cursed his tendency to build in too much detail; it made the illusion
more convincing, but also gave it more reality from within, and this... thing he had
made was absorbing the chaotic energies around the drowned city and becoming more...
solid.  But he was no apprentice to lose his grip on a spell, and he pinned it with
his will and began to dismantle the web of forces that sustained it.

     They rode for an hour without problems, though less rapidly than Adie wished. 
Tollisker held them to a steady pace, walk and trot and walk again.  He said that
they could not count on finding remounts short of Aruak City, therefore they weren't
going to ride these horses into the ground, that the time gained at a gallop would be
lost when they were afoot.  Adie acknowledged the sense of that, but she chaffed at
the delay.
     Along the Point peninsula, through land which, Tollisker said, was all under the
wardenship of Lord Jerrofil.  If so, it spoke well of Jerrofil's stewardship.  There
were fields that had been abandoned, one saw them everywhere in recent years, but
fewer than she'd expected.  Farmsteads and hamlets occupied and in good condition,
people who paused in their work to watch the troop pass and raised a hand in greeting
and salute to Jerrofil's banner.
     "Things are better here than I expected," Fandil said quietly.
     Tollisker shrugged.  "Most of the people here are Convincian, not Aruaki.  And
Point arena is closed.  So we haven't been hit as hard as the Clanholds.  It's bad
enough, though.  You'll see, soon."
     "See what?"  Adie glanced around, looking for the unexpected or the out-of-
place.  But it was much the same as they'd seen all the way from Point, fields and
patches of woods, a farmstead tucked under a hill.  Watchers on the hilltops.  More
hilltops than farther west, the land rose into a chain of rugged hills at the end of
peninsula, then would fall away into the river valley where Aruak City was located.
     "Around the next hill," Tollisker said.  He was tense, Adie saw, like a man who
is not only ready for trouble but actually expects it at any moment.
     It made her tense, too, and she began gathering sunlight against... whatever
need might arise.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out IAYE to see 
what's new.  Too bad, THE A'S -- LOSERS II, but RED DOG GANG was just too good to be 
stopped.  GAMEHENDGE like really fought hard to move up to 3rd from 8th.  Way to go!  
MVP award for MAPT?  RANDOM's proud of him after beating DR TRINAIRE and getting 22 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  DR TRINAIRE's match with MAPT cost her a loss 
of 12 points!  Like, LADY HUNTSMAN must be pretty gutsy!  She challenged the 
Duelmaster from CRYSTAL PALACE.  Does this gal have a death wish or what!  And I was 
just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome LADY 
HUNTSMAN.  Aren't LENPROS proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real 
snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  THE A'S -- LOSERS II was IAYE's most avoided team.  
Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are LENPROS?  THE A'S -- 
LOSERS II, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can RED DOG GANG's BIGFOOTS be more popular than me?  He was challenged 
the most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All IAYE ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear 
from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
