Fratsfa:

     Fandil stared out over Fratsfa from his high window, then shook his head and
turned away to finish stowing a few necessary items into a carpet bag.  And told
himself, again, that Lenpro could take care of himself and was probably following up
some hot tip.  That he was not, in fact, his brother's keeper, and Lenpro wouldn't
thank him for this dither and fuss.  And that he himself had a hot tip to
investigate.
     He pulled the carpet bag shut and buckled the strap.  All this dithering was
silly, pointless, insulting to his brother, and most of all, not like himself.  He
shook it off.  It was just a mood, and he didn't need it.  He picked up his bag and
glanced out the window one last time.  Odd how noisy a city could be--
     By all the gods, that wasn't just city noise, it was a mob!  Men with clubs were
standing in front of the Flower Shoppe, shaking their fists and shouting!  He
couldn't make out the words up here under the roof, so turned and plunged down the
stairs to find out what was going on.
     Lady Fern met him at the bottom of the stairs.  "Relax, Fandil," she said before
he could speak.  "This is just a rented mob, and I've dealt with them before.  You
have important work to do, so go and do it."
     "But--"
     "I can handle this."  She raised an eyebrow.  "Do you doubt me?"
     The young Fratsfan mage, Elosjon, came from the front room, face white and eyes
staring.  "They're calling for 'Fandil the Traitor' to be released to them!" he said.
The look he turned on the older mage was worried.
     Fandil cursed mentally but allowed no sign of his annoyance to show in face or
voice.  "That is just what people would call me who want to stop me.  It is only
words, Elosjon, not truth."
     "Did you hear any details?" Fern asked.  "Who hired the mob, for instance?"
     "Hired...?"  The young man blinked and looked over his shoulder.  "They were
hired?  But why?"
     "To make trouble, to stop me finding the magician behind the current
disruptions," Fandil said.  "It isn't an unusual move for a politician, you know."
Could this young man be so naive?  Hmm, if he'd been head down over the spell-books 
since he was old enough to understand them, yes, he probably could be.  Was.  "We'd
better get going."
     "It's Lord Orboj," Elosjon said.  "He's the richest man in Fratsfa.  Nobody
crosses him--if he names me a traitor, too, I'm through here!"
     "Well, if the city and your colleagues are so fickle and easily swayed, you
might do better elsewhere anyway," Fern said.  She snorted.  "Orboj--he doesn't come
here.  I don't cater to his tastes and never will."
     Fandil opened his eyes wide.  Fern catered to many tastes, if Orboj wanted
something different, he must be strange indeed, and notably perverse.
     There had been a lot of coming and going of the Flower Girls while they talked,
but Fandil only noticed it now because one stopped.  A redhead of statuesque
proportions and discretely indiscrete garb.  She leaned close to Elosjon, linking an
arm through his.  "You won't mind going out with ME, in fact, I know you'll like it,"
she half-whispered.  "And no one will notice if old Fandil trails along behind us."
She kissed his ear.  "I can hardly wait."
     Lady Fern laughed.  "Be good, Ravishing Redbud!  This--"
     "I am ALWAYS good," Redbud answered.
     Fern laughed again, and Elosjon had turned as red as the woman's hair and seemed
incapable of speech or even thought; he allowed her to pull him out the back door and
didn't notice Fandil following.
     "Take care," Fern said as Fandil passed her.  "And don't worry about me here, or
about Lenpro either.  Ours is a family that copes, you know that."  She pushed him
out and shut the door behind him.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I sneaked in a carrier pigeon message while we were all out travelling
with Lenpro.  I'm here for you, you know?  A Duelmaster has some responsibilities.
     I see that another of my Little Rocky fights was published.  I like the little
guy, but, once again, I was top dog.  Perhaps it is the names?  I mean Sir Carlson
sounds more Duelmasterly that Little Rocky, don't you think?
     And Sway and Legs were wiped out in the Dark Arena?  What will I have to look
forward to?  I admit to being a leg man.  Long, lovely, luscious... well, you get the
idea.
     Good luck to all.  You will need it because we Lenpros are on a roll.

                          Sir Carlson, Duelmaster

                                      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 BAINES, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing LITTLE 
ROCKY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to 
walk out on the sands.  LITTLE ROCKY was bested by BAINES and drops 11 points.  Well, 
everybody's pal SIR CARLSON moved his record to 22-4-0 by defeating SPUD in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 2 recognition points.  Can you believe they are 
paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the IAYE arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad GAMEHENDGE?  Big bad GAMEHENDGE.  Big bad 
GAMEHENDGE.  IAYE's afraid of the big bad GAMEHENDGE.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I 
may not be funny, but catch LENPROS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from GAMEHENDGE.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were 
votes, HELP ON THE WAY would be president.  Although it may be a contest it doesn't 
want to win.  BROTHER DOBBIN of LENPROS had better have a good reason for challenging 
down 14 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought BROTHER DOBBIN showed great 
skill and promise when he subdued DIGGITY DOG.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in IAYE have no sense 
of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Going pretty blind this turn.  Sorry for the inadequate personals. -- Lenpro (off to
see the grandkids--Max and Clara)

If I am still Duelmaster (I hope.) I apologize for no column.  I was roped into
babysitting. -- Sir Carlson

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  And good luck in The Mailer. -- Lenpro

Sir Carlson -- You're a brute and a bully, but what can I say?  I'm a dog, and I
don't care.  You throw the frisbee, scratch my ears, I gotta love you.  It's a dog
thing. -- Little Rocky

Brother Dobbin -- It isn't RIGHT to tease me like that! -- Diggity Dog

Help on the Way -- And not a minute too soon.  Listen, I need you to hold that end of
the string over there so I can pull this end snug here and... yeah, okay.  We're
good, this is a string and a half long.  That's all I needed to know.  Thanks. --
Spud

This Ambitious Guard person?  I don't like him.  He smells wrong.  I think he
probably drinks that yucky stuff, not water, you know?  Why do humans do that? --
Moondog

Major Martin -- Ah, just what I wanted, an experienced man to show me how to go on
here. -- Fifi Delite
P.S.  More skills would have been good.  I'm not stupid, you know.

Lenpros -- It's the arena.  Death happens.  I can, so to speak, live with that. --
