     Lenpro was no magician, but he could tell that something had happened...even if
two men over in the corner hadn't been screaming and holding their heads.  Something
magical, probably.  He put down his beer, took the glass out of Dandy's hand--he
didn't want to know what weird concoction was in it--and stood.  "We have to get back
to the Flower Shoppe," he said.  "Fandil may need me."
                         *****   ***   *****   ***   *****
     Fandil was okay.  That was a relief, but not entirely unexpected.  His brother
was tough, and experienced; he would know how to defend himself.  Against...whatever
that had been.  He raised an eyebrow inquiringly.
     "I don't know either," Fandil said.  "Some kind of magical barrier, yes.  But
whether it's intended to seal up the magical activity of Fratsfa, or block magical
communication with somewhere else--Andor, for instance, or what exactly was
intended...?"  He shrugged.  "I don't know who, I don't know why.  But I think we
need to go to Andor physically and soon."
     "I thought you were concerned about the safety of Emperor Alonj," Lady Fern
     "We are," Lenpro answered quickly.  "But I would think we could leave that in
your capable hands, sister."
     Fern frowned but nodded.  "I'll take care of it."


     Senator Sedalia looked at his hands and sighed.  The oars had rubbed them into
blisters, despite the gloves he'd worn.  His back ached.  And he loathed the clothing
that went with his costume.  Would anyone here in Amen-Tei seriously believe that he
was an itinerant peddler?  At least the gods favored him in one thing, and Senator
Dole was no longer resident in this town.  He couldn't have fooled Dole for a minute;
one senator always knew another.
     Sedalia had argued with the demon on the Black Ship, Tashkemk, that this
masquerade was unnecessary and would be unconvincing, but arguing with demons turned
out to be monumentally unproductive.  In a human, the senator would have suspected a
simple enthusiasm for the theatrical, but did that apply to demons?  But the worst
was that Tashkemk had insisted that the senator's companion, Gissanniah, remain on
the Black Ship as a hostage for his, Sedalia's, performance.  Dammit, he had given
the demon his WORD.  If they couldn't trust him, why employ him on this fool's
errand?  And when he'd asked what guarantee HE had of the young woman's safety, the
demon had just LAUGHED.
     All of which put the senator in a really bad mood, so that when a dockhand
slouched up and sneered at the wretched little boat, skiff, whatever was the proper
term, why, he let fly with some harsh language that would have blistered the hide on
a rhinoceros.  Which, Sedalia pointed out in a calmer afterthought, the dockhand
rather resembled--big, ugly, stupid, with a misshapen nose, and a singularly unlovely
     It turned out that this was precisely the way one should approach sneering
dockhands, and the fellow tethered the vessel to the dock in some appropriate
manner--Sedalia didn't want to know the details--and helped unload the cargo.
     The senator didn't care about most of the cargo.  Yes, it was valuable, but it
was just stuff, and a man who couldn't pour out wealth to achieve a goal had no
business in politics.  Still, it wouldn't do to let the dockhand think he had secret
agendas, so he asked questions about rental space and then watched closely while the
cargo was loaded on a cart, hauled to a sturdy warehouse, and stored in a sealed
room.  One leather case with a shoulder strap and brass fastenings he kept with him.
     Cargo dealt with, Sedalia's next goal was a dockside tavern called the Pig's
Eye.  He had no great hopes of it but found the place cleaner than he'd expected,
busy but not raucous.  Of course, he had no inherent objection to "raucous,"
political conventions were always like that.  But which of these rather ordinary
looking people was his contact?  What would a demon's contact look like, anyway?  It
couldn't be another demon, surely, not here in the open.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My fellow royalty say that it is only right that a prince rises to the top.  I
ray it has been a very, very difficult road.  I have learned a lot on the way.  Most
importantly, I have learned that there are a lot of people out there better than me.
A good life lesson, I think.  But now, with my first title (I lost in three attempts
sometime back--twice to Ozzie Canseco and once to Franklin's Tower.) I have reached
Lord Protectorship status and I will be moving on.  Even princes retire sometimes.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in IAYE.  
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey everybody, 
watch out for HELP ON THE WAY, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing 
SIR CARLSON like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SIR CARLSON was bested by HELP ON THE WAY and 
drops 19 points.  Unlike most arenas, PRINCE POLIOLES managed to get his challenge 
off against the 0-0-0 STONE GOLEM.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as STONE GOLEM 
killed the Duelmaster, PRINCE POLIOLES, leaving LENPROS in mourning.  This incredible 
death has allowed, I might add, OUT OF TIME from GAMEHENDGE to ascend to the throne 
of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  An apple a day keeps the doctor 
away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad RED DOG GANG?  Big bad RED DOG GANG.  Big bad RED DOG GANG.  IAYE's afraid 
of the big bad RED DOG GANG.  Tra la la la la!  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 104 points and a 24-31-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I 
could tell!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
