     "So," Lenpro said, "we have two basic--linked but distinct--problems.  The
chaotic magic, and the civil war.  Is that correct?"
     Lady Fern nodded.  "Over-simplified, but correct."
     "And Fandil is going to have to be the one to deal with the magic--"
     "I have heard of the mage Fandil, of course," Herlas cut in, "and I would guess
he has as good a chance as any and better than most, but... will he do it?  Will he
do it in TIME?"
     "He's working on it now," Fern said.
     The younger man blinked and looked around the room blankly.  "Already?  But how
did he know?"
     Fern laughed.  "That is a question I prefer not to ask my brother, along with
'what are you doing?'.  It is sufficient to know that he is working on it."  She sat
even straighter in her chair.  "Your obvious intention, Lenpro, is to state that we
here in this room must begin to deal with the civil war side of the problem."
     "Preferably before it becomes an outright civil war," the manager from Iaye
said.  "At the moment, it's more of a palace coup.  If we can stop it now--"
     "Ah..." Herlas shifted a little in his chair, "that may not be possible.
Cutting it off before it becomes an outright civil war.  The tensions and irritations
that Korneth has been working with are real enough, and by now they're probably--
almost certainly--inflamed enough that bringing them to a halt short of violence
is....  I don't think it can be done."
     "Just what, exactly, 'tensions and irritations' are you talking about?"  Lenpro
scowled.  "The Andorian League is probably the best place to live in all Alastari--"
     Herlas sighed, looked at Outcast Orchid almost helplessly for a moment, then
squared his shoulders.  Definitely a 'you aren't going to like this' gesture.
"Korneth may have come out of nowhere I've ever heard of, but he gained local support
quickly.  Very quickly--and more than you might think, especially in Convincia.  The
Great Thane has been... cool, but he hasn't made any effort to stop the drift of many
of his lesser thanes into the..." a vague gesture, of one groping for words, "the
isolationist camp, I might call it.  And at a lower level still, among the ordinary
people, farmers, small merchants, the foundation of Convincian strength, there's a
lot of resentment against, well, the Aruaki first.  They don't like how powerful the
Aruaki are in the League.  They don't like Aruaki wanting to marry their sons and
daughters and 'taint' their own family bloodlines.  They just--"
     "They don't like the Aruaki," Fern finished.  She looked thoughtful and glanced
at Lenpro.  "What has been your experience on Iaye?  It is officially under the
government of the Aruaki Clanhold, is it not?"
     "Officially... sort of."  Lenpro got up and started walking around the room,
finding an outlet for his own irritation in the activity.  With obvious reluctance,
he said, "We don't see many of the Aruaki on Iaye, and if some official were to come
and try to give orders... they probably wouldn't be well received.  But that's a long
way from civil war!"
     "It's the soil that a civil war can grow in," Fern said.  "The werefolk are not
welcomed with open arms here in Fratsfa, either, especially since the plague.  Some
of the plague-driven shape-changes and the associated personality shifts were," she
sighed, "frankly disastrous.  But it isn't the fault of the Aruaki themselves!"
     "It doesn't need to be," Sizzling Sunflower cut in.  "It isn't the fault of the
river if someone's house gets flooded, but no intelligent person builds too close to
it even so."
     "Yes, exactly so."  Herlas nodded.  "Even people who aren't hostile to the
Aruaki have taken to avoiding them--"
     "We don't see it in the arenas," Lenpro said.
     "Yes, well, they're avoiding the gladiators, too, I bet," Orchid said.  "Nobody
was giving gladiators the benefit of the doubt up in Andor just recently."
     "There's also hostility toward gladiators," Herlas admitted.  "Many people see
them as tools of the Grey Wand, which they fear outright.  And, again, they resent
the effect of the arenas on their sons and daughters.  That it draws them away from
what their parents consider the proper life and duties--"
     "A lot of jealousy, huh?" Orchid asked.
     Herlas nodded again.  "A lot of people have trouble accepting the typical elvish
lifespan, but at least elves can be killed.  Add in the guarantee of resurrection...
jealousy, resentment, even religious outrage.  There was a lot of dissatisfaction
that Korneth could strike a match to."
     "It's all well and good to SAY these things," Orchid growled, taking her turn to
stamp up and down the room.  "But what can we DO about them?  The Aruaki aren't going
to go away.  The arenas aren't going to go away.  The elves, and the Grey Wand,
aren't going to go away.  All this stuff you're SAYING isn't telling us what we can
     Herlas smiled, though there was little amusement in the expression.  "Korneth's
solution is to kill or 'cast out' the Aruaki--send them back to Ratan, apparently.
Get rid of the arena system, kill Lord Protectors whenever they turn up and destroy
the bodies so that they can't be resurrected, and direct the energies of the
remaining Andorians toward a war with the Karnhorn Empire."
     "Scapegoats," Lady Fern said.  Her expression suggested that if she wasn't a
lady, she'd spit on the floor.
     "Cut off Korneth's legitimacy by providing a ruler that all can accept as--"
     "But can 'all' accept Alonj?" Orchid asked.
     "As an alternative to a civil war, yes, I think so.  If we get the message on
that out before emotions become so inflamed that nobody wants a reasonable
alternative to civil war.  But these irritations... they won't go away, because they
do have a real foundation," Lenpro nodded acknowledgement at the Zensovian mage, "but
they've become exaggerated.  Inflamed," he repeated, liking the word.
"So we need anti-inflammatories."  Fern nodded.  "It won't be easy, but--"
     "Maybe if the Aruaki and the Lord Protectors help out people, all kinds of
people--the ordinary ones you were talking about," Sunflower began.
     "No."  Fern and Lenpro spoke together, and immediately.  Lenpro gestured for his
sister to continue.  "If we add the burden of gratitude to the resentments already
festering, it will make things worse.  No, better if we find some way for the
ordinary mortal human Andorians to help out the Aruaki and the Lord Protectors, that
might do better."
     Sizzling Sunflower looked dubious, but she shrugged and sat back, accepting her
manager's perception as being wiser than her own.  "How, then?"

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ha!  Got you, Major Martin!  I do like a good romp, so let's do it again.

                                    Diggity Dog

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  IAYE needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Talk about hot teams!  
ANGRY BEES goes out, the very first time, and goes 4-1-0!  Like, what do you guys eat 
for breakfast?  MVP award for QORK ORKKIN?  RAGGED EDGE's proud of him after beating 
STRIPE and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  STRIPE's match with QORK 
ORKKIN cost him a loss of 19 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most 
popular guy in all IAYE.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) 
Like, SENATOR WILEY must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from RED DOG 
GANG.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  Was that a tear I saw in SENATOR 
WILEY's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't DIGGITY DOG fit to be tied!  
Who was the wiseguy that said IAYE's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Wharf 
Rat?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  HER BEST ASSETS 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 HER BEST ASSETS, that's fer sher.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
