The Isle of the Eye:

     Four steps into the woods and they couldn't see the clearing and the cart, or
hear even the distant murmuring of voices.  It wasn't that the undegrowth was heavy,
it was just... as though there was a barrier of some kind which they had just
crossed.  And it was hotter in here under the trees, with the air absolutely
motionless.  Even to speak here seemed like it would be an offense.
     Whispering, Gissanniah said, "We should go back.  Closer to the edge, where we
can still see out."
     Senator Sedalia considered arguing, good, solid arguments such as that they
didn't want to risk someone seeing in and spotting them.  He shook his head.
Gissanniah was right, the risk of getting lost here was worse.  He looked down.  His
feet were pressed into the leaf mold under the trees, and would leave visible
footprints.  Starting here.  There were no other visible footprints marking their
entry into the woods.  "Which way is back?"

Halfway between Seam and Tarrgir:

     Lenpro looked at Fandil and raised an eyebrow in question.
     Fandil shook his head.  "I've no idea what's going on here.  I can't think of
any reason for a... a guard post on this road.  It isn't a border."
     Lenpro considered that and shook his head.  "It is, though.  The border between
the Clanholds and Convincia must run right along here."
     "Not an external border," Fandil insisted.  "There's no reason to patrol an
internal--"
     "Let's ask them."  Lenpro nodded at the soldiers standing in the road ahead.
"In fact, we'd better go up to them before they decide our hesitation here is
suspicious!"  He nudged his horse with a heel, walking it forward.
     The soldiers formed up to make it clear that no one was to pass without their
approval, and an officer stepped out in front of them to meet the travelers.
     Fandil nodded politely to them all and said, "Good day.  What's afoot here?"
     "We've orders to turn back any Aruaki who try to leave the Clanhold territory,"
the officer said.  He was firm, but not belligerent.  For him, clearly, it was just a
case of doing his job.
     "Why?" Lenpro asked.
     The officer shrugged.  "I am not privy to policy.  All I have are the orders."
     "How do you tell for sure that someone is or is not Aruaki?" Fandil asked,
looking around for a magician.
     "We have been provided with a device."  The officer's tone was a little sour,
now.  He gestured at a framework of three poles, two vertical with the third uniting
the upper ends.  It was about the size of a normal doorway.  "If you pass through
that without setting off the alarm, then you have no Aruaki blood and are free to go 
on into Convincia."
     "Doesn't that seem a little unfair?" Fandil asked.
     "No.  It seems like a very clear order from my superior officer.  I have been
told the Aruaki are still carrying the plague of shape-changing," he added, "and the
gods know how much damage they did among normal people when they Changed and went
berserk."
     Fandil opened his mouth to argue further, but Lenpro stopped him.  "This man has
his orders and must obey them," the Iayean manager pointed out.  Our quarrel, if we
have one--there's a lot of point in that business of the plague, you know--our
quarrel must be with those who established the policy and issued the orders."
     "I don't like it," Fandil growled.  "But you're right."  He sighed, nodded an
apology to the soldier, and dismounted to walk through the test-doorway.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for IAYE.  MVP award for FRANKLINS TOWER?  THE 
WARLOCKS' proud of it after beating MAD CARMENCITA and getting 16 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  HELP ON THE WAY got smashed by RUTHLESS JAYWALKER, and lost 7 
points!  Like THE A'S -- LOSERS II's WORLD CHUMPS is sweating since it got challenged 
by Duelmaster PRIVATE PERNA!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  PRIVATE PERNA 
stopped WORLD CHUMPS dead in its tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob 
to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  RED DOG GANG was IAYE's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what LENPROS' been doing.  
They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from RED DOG GANG, that's fer sher. 
Can RED DOG GANG's FENCE POST be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, 
but is that really the same?  People were asking me did PRINCE POLIOLES REALLY 
challenge FENCE POST?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't 
a spectacular fight, or anything, but FENCE POST wants me to write about it since he 
bested PRINCE POLIOLES.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All IAYE ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  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 gotta leave.  IAYE is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Congratulations to Fence Post, Lord Protector.  Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Lenpro

Little Rocky -- Do you really know who that was you were wacking around? -- Princess
Kurtz

Help on the Way -- You really need it. -- Prince Polioles

World Chumps -- Once again, you prove that winning the big one is beyond you. --

I got the wins! (14)  Six more PP's (political points).  Sorry, no column, on the run
(defensive maneuver). -- Private Perna

Franklins Tower -- You think I care about your petty jealousy, NOW?  Ha. -- Fence

anything

The Noble Assassin should be ASHAMED of himself!  If he was REALLY noble, he wouldn't
be an assassin. -- Mad Carmencita, really annoyed this time

Out of Time -- But then again, maybe not. -- Windsong

Baines -- Good try, but I'm too rich for a lot of people.  Not your fault, just an
inferior metabolism. -- Irish Cream

Princess Kurtz -- You think I'm a tough, scrappy fighter, but really, I'd be
delighted to be a lapdog, in the right lap. -- Little Rocky

I like the riposte tactic?  I wasn't even aware that I *knew* the riposte tactic.
Huh.  Learn something every day, I guess. -- Fence Post
