     Fandil started by simply opening his magical awareness, a sort of sixth sense,
to the city.  This was not the most pleasant experience, because Fratsfa was a very
old city that had been steeping in magic of many kinds for centuries.  The background
was a muck of bits and pieces of spells accumulated, pressed together by the addition
of more magic on top of it, deformed by that pressure and by age, uniting into
compound magical structures that no magician had ever visualized, almost breeding
with each other.  Fratsfa had the highest incidence of spontaneous magical activity
of anyplace other than Chaos-contaminated ground such as the marshy plain near Delarq
Tor.  And when it was happening without the guidance of even a deranged mind, you
didn't need the residual effect of Chaos Magic to twist the results into strange
forms.  Some parts of the background magic here were alive.
     Against this background, real, living, practicing magicians moved like thieves
in a crowd:  sometimes you saw them, sometimes you didn't.  Picking out possible
allies and enemies wasn't easy.  Fandil snorted.  If it was easy, they wouldn't need
     He began to sort and filter his impressions, and the first thing he discovered
was another magician, also scanning.  Younger, though no child.  Not a clear
signature, male, human, mixed motives.  But strong, and even with mixed motives, he
might be willing to make himself useful--
     A blast of energy like a portculis falling, like a guilotine.  Like being hit in
the head with an axe, but not, Fandil decided as he picked himself up off the floor,
quite as bloody and final.  What had happened was clear enough:  some magician of
considerable power had broken the beginning of contact between Fandil and the young
mage before it had a chance to develop.  Possibly had killed the young man, which
would be unfortunate.
     The old mage extended his magical sense again, not as easily--even thinking hurt
at the moment.  The magical background was seething, the Fratsfan magicians had
either gone into hiding or were doing the equivalent of standing on their doorsteps
shouting at each other.  Not helpful.  Well, looking back at the brief contact, it
was not Fandil's impression that the young man was HERE.  Within fifty miles,
probably closer, but not right here in the city.  North and west.  Maybe in... Andor?
A hopeful thought, they could use a contact in the capital.  He reached out--and came
up against a wall of magic.  No contact with Andor was possible from here.  He would
have to go closer physically if he wanted to pursue that connection.  Or wait until
the arcanum cleared, this kind of barrier took amazing amounts of energy to sustain.
     But he had a feeling, growing stronger by the moment, that they didn't have the
time to wait.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I have so little to say.  I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and
hope I will not be here, having already been graduated, for the latter.
     Iaye is always in my prayers.
          Brother J.J., D.M.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for MOONDOG, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing AMBITIOUS 
GUARD like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top 
ten was SIR CARLSON, who dropped 11 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with OUT OF TIME.  Our battling duelmaster BROTHER J.J. has managed to hold the 
title, fending off BAINES' none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, 
GAMEHENDGE.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming 
at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that RED DOG GANG was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of RED DOG GANG's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who 
like math, try this one:  RED DOG GANG + Weapons That go Boom = LENPROS + Avoid City. 
And who is this OUT OF TIME you ask, with 111 points and a 23-30-1 record.  Ooh, the 
tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide 
Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
