Fratsfa:

     The slum they were in decayed into a worse slum, and that faded into an area
that was half ruins and half buildings that just managed to stay upright.  There were
people in the ramshackle structures even so.  Sizzling Sunflower saw one woman
dressed in rags--literally in rags, and it was impossible to guess her age--staring
at them as though they were the most alien and fantastic beings imaginable.  Perhaps
they were, here.
     Lenpro touched her arm.  "Don't stare at them," he said quietly.
     "How can they live like this?" Sunflower demanded.
     "A wise man once said to me that if you don't know where people are coming from
and where they're going, you can't judge the route they've chosen."
     "That sounds, I don't know, profound or something, but what does it mean?"
     "It means you should let be, until someone actually asks for help, or at least
until you know more."  They turned a corner--there were no long straight avenues
here--and approached the crumbling wall that enclosed the Old Ruins.
     Lenpro frowned.  The wall was shimmering, faintly but unmistakably.  Or maybe it
weren't, maybe it was just heat waves or sun reflecting off snow.  Both at once?  It
was an odd thing, anyway, and probably magical, and as such it should be approached
with caution.  And preferably with a mage in hand, but Fandil wasn't here.  Lenpro
didn't think they had time to waste going back to get him.  He glanced at Sizzling
Sunflower.
     She was staring at the wall, wide-eyed.  "Weird!" she said, and smiled.  "This
should be something new, let's try it!"
     Lenpro shook his head.  It was a long time since he'd been that young.  But
maybe hers was the right attitude anyway.  "Yes, let's."  He stepped up to the
gateway.
     The sensation was a familiar one: they had stepped through some kind of
dimensional gateway.  And if he'd had any question about that, what he saw beyond it
would have made all certain.  They were not on Ghea any more.
     The buildings were as ruined as he had expected in this oldest part of Fratsfa,
if it still was based on that city.  But heaps of rubble reared into narrow mounds of
unnatural height, and broken walls loomed and tottered, seeming to hang in mid-air
when they should be collapsing.  The flagstoned streets lay at unexpected angles, and
sometimes there was nothing at all between the stones.  They say people, more than
Lenpro had expected, but not one who appeared normal.  He began to wonder how he
appeared to them and glanced over at Sizzling Sunflower.
     She looked half plant, or maybe like a sunflower that was half human.  She
touched his arm with one leafy green hand.  "This is so neat!  It's a whole other
world here!"  When she smiled, her teeth were striped like sunflower seeds.
     "It is that," Lenpro agreed.  He glanced back to check on their line of retreat.
They didn't have a line of retreat, there was no sign of the gateway through which
they'd come.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Shucks. I have little to say.  I'm a less ecstatic writer than I am a fighter,
and some of you know how unexcitable that is!  So perhaps, instead, I shall give an
ode to my fallen teammate, General Golf.
     He could drive for show.
     And he putted well for dough.
     But he got whacked.
     Or was it spracked?
     And now he is no mo.
General Golf was a 17-11-3-17-15-10-11 bonused Init Lunger with good damage and
endurance.  In 41 swings, he never critted.
     Good bye, little guy.  May you fight and birdie well in that Great Arena In The
Sky.

                Sir Carlson, DM

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt IAYE will ever be the same.  The RED DOG GANG guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, LEGS fought BROTHER DOBBIN and gained 25 points and contributed 
to HER BEST ASSETS' 1-2-0.  BROTHER DOBBIN has lost to LEGS, falling 13 points, while 
helping make LENPROS a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have 
failed, and SIR CARLSON remains IAYE's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was 
that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Dragon's 
Blood Inn?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  RED DOG GANG has cause to stand tall, 
as they were IAYE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat. 
And guess who avoided RED DOG GANG stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
LENPROS.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in IAYE, but never good to wear out my welcome.  Look 
for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe

I apologize to all for the lack of conversation.  We were indisposed at the time. --
Lenpro

     We're glad you're disposed now.

We enter this turn going blind, so Little Rocky, Baines, Help On the Way, Spud,
Rustie, and Moondog--this is your chance! -- Lenpro

On the agenda for the next Iaye Council Meetings:  Dogs running free in our fair
city. -- Mayor McLay

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Iaye forever. -- Lenpro

Wow, Thighs!  Did you have to do THAT?  Poor General Golf.  And my only Lenpro SZ3
ever.  (sigh) -- Lenpro

Sir Carlson -- No!  Not the... LEASH!  Does that mean I get to go for a walk? --
Little Rocky, panting eagerly

Help on the Way -- Looks like we should swap records. -- Spud
P.S.  Do you carry a keg of brandy fastened to your collar?

Lady Liberty -- Why shouldn't I sit on the furniture?  You sit on the furniture, so
why shouldn't I? -- Rustie

Mayor Mclay -- You're anti-dog, I can tell.  Bad Mayor, BAD. -- Moondog

Brother Dobbin -- You'll never learn to relax and have fun until you embrace dogs. --
Diggity Dog
P.S.  We know the secret.
