Near Barikala:

     The pillar of light over Barikala was not an attack in any obvious way, but
Artemisia found no comfort in that.  It was probably magical.  No, it was definitely
magical.  No one had been able to explain it in the months, the years since the
Invasion, but they'd figured out that early on.  Well, what else could it be?  And
it, or something connected to it, was deadly dangerous, because no ship or single
visitor had returned from Barikala after the pillar first appeared.  Those ship
captains who normally used Zukal's port had long since worked out the limits of
safety in the waters around Barikala, and The Golden Moon was well outside that 
limit.  But...the zombies were something new on the chart.
     A man screamed behind her, along the ship's other rail, and she whirled.  There
was movement beyond the rail, black on near black, hard to make out.  Lanterns lit
the ship's deck but cast no significant light beyond it.  She could see one of her
sailors staggering toward the rail with some kind of dark cable wrapped around the
middle of his body, but not what lay beyond and pulled him.
     She didn't need to see.  She crossed to that side of the deck, her cutlass
whistling down on the cable.  The blade bit, but not deeply, the cable was more
rubbery than a normal rope.  It wasn't a rope, of course.  She saw with disgust
rather than fear that it was a tentacle, though what creature would have a tentacle
four inches thick at any point was not something she cared to think deeply about.
The Lady Protector hacked downward again.
     There were more cries.  Fear, loathing, terror.  More tentacles reaching up and
over the ship's side.  Tentacles on one side of the ship, zombies on the other.
Neither group of sailors could abandon their own task to aid the other.  Both
attacking forces were stronger than Artemisia had expected.  She began to wonder if
her crew and her ship would survive at all.

Niatoli Island:

     Lord Protector Ghenis walked along the waterfront of the island's only real town
and looked over the shipping on hand.  He wasn't sure what he was looking for, but he
figured he'd know it when he saw it.  Some people might have taken him for a tourist
and considered robbing him, or selling him the kind of trash that hustlers always
sold to strangers and rubes, but...not here.  This town had an arena, and they knew
that kind of walk, that assured and dangerous stance.  He could be a hick with hay
growing out his ears, but as long as he was a Lord Protector, no one would mistreat
him so.  At least, no one but another Lord Protector.  And since he wasn't such a
hick....  He smiled, a baring of his teeth that drove human rats out of his path.
     Ah.  There was a man on the street ahead of him, talking to a probably ship
captain.  A man who, like himself, was unmistakably a Lord Protector.  Tall, hard,
maybe not quite human, although Ghenis couldn't put his finger firmly on the
difference.  Something in the way he stood, maybe.  Not that it matter.  This looked
like a man he could work with.
     When the man turned away from the sailor, Ghenis was there, nodding his head in
a move as close to a bow as he ever got.  "I'm Ghenis, from Zukal," he said, and
raised a questioning eyebrow.
     The other frowned.  Odd, at this close distance, he seemed almost...scaled.
"Agro, Lapur," the man said shortly.
     Ghenis noted that the sailor was moving away, clearly dissociating himself from
the two gladiators.  "I have control of a ship," Ghenis said, "and I am minded to
make a raid on the invaders at Monuntial.  You look like a man who might be
interested in that."
     Agro's frown deepened, but he smiled, baring pointed, over-large teeth.  "I'm
interested," he agreed.


     Lady Protector Eleven Blade, Leven to her friends, stood on Spirit Ridge and
stared southward.  What should have been rolling, increasingly arid grasslands to the
distant horizon was now a bank of...fog, maybe.  Dark, sharp as a wall at its base,
the top of it working like porridge boiling in a pot.  And no more than fifteen miles
away, probably less.  Ten.  "I've never seen anything like it," she admitted.
"Strange weather...if it is weather."
     "It's partly weather," her companion said slowly, "but not entirely."  He was a
Lord Protector from Morya, Ghost Dancer by name.  "I have been studying it for two
months now.  It began...I don't know where.  Somewhere in the far south.  It was a
hundred miles south of here when I first saw it."
     Leven glanced at the man sharply.  She didn't really know him, but there was
nothing in his face or manner that suggested he was lying.  "It's moved ninety miles
in two months?  At that rate, it could be on Rocanis within a week!"
     "Its speed is irregular," Ghost Dancer said.  "Some days it moved scarcely a
mile, other days it raced north like wildfire.  But yes, it could be on Rocanis...
any time."  He was silent for a moment, as though debating whether he should say
more.  With a faint shrug, he went on, "I have not been able to find an end to the
line of it and get around behind.  I have no idea what lies behind in the ground it
has already covered.  But I would not expect to find anything really GOOD where that
has passed."
     Obviously not, Leven agreed silently.  The unknown never seemed to be
benevolent.  It was probably a natural law.  "You couldn't get around an end," she
said.  "Did you try going straight through?"
     Ghost Dancer paled a little.  "Yes," he said very quietly.  "I survived, but I
didn't get very far into it.  Or I would never have come back, I think.  It was like
being caught in a whirlwind, in part.  But I was not the only thing in the grip of
the walking storm, and the others were....  Some of them were beasts, mad with terror
and striking blindly.  Others were," he hesitated, "things.  The sort of things a
priest of the Mytori might call out of the Darkness."
     "Do you believe it's a natural phenomenon?" Eleven Blade asked.
     "Good.  If it's unnatural, it was made by men.  Or something like men, anyway.
And what men can make, they can undo.  Let's find out how, and then...undo."

     Tiberious, newly made a Lord Protector in Aljafir, looked at the capital city of
the Glorious Empire with curiosity and unease.  While he was a citizen of the Empire
in good standing, he was also a Dwarf, and the races which weren't strictly human
were regarded with suspicion throughout most of the Empire.  Especially here at its
ancient heart.  He hadn't wanted to come here.  But a new law ruled that all Lord
Protectors desiring a grant of lands or other honors must apply to the Great Palace
of the Satrap for them, and he WAS a Dwarf.  He would not lightly forego this portion
of the reward for which he had striven so long and at such risk.  He took a firmer
grip on the battle axe which custom required all Dwarves to carry and strode up to
the Western Door.
     Decent metal work, he noted professionally.  To be honest, excellent metalwork,
although he could not (and this surprised him) even guess at the source.  It was
unlike anything he'd seen before, not the work of Elf or Human, and certainly not
Dwarven work.  He was an educated man, in the Dwarven sense, and he would KNOW.  Very
old, you didn't get that kind of patina on bronze in a day, not even if you employed
an alchemist.  He leaned closer, trying to make out the individual symbols that
formed a tangled whole on each panel.
     "Too close a study of those doors can be injurious to your health."
     Tiberious whirled, raising the axe automatically.  But the speaker was an old
man in the long robe of a Karnhorn scholar, no threat unless he was a wizard.  On
closer look, it seemed like he probably was a wizard.  There was something about the
eyes that marked them, as though they saw things that others couldn't.  Probably they
did.  "If the doors are so dangerous, why use them?"
     "Because of the danger, perhaps, but mostly because they are old, and old things
lend a legitimacy to what is younger."  The old man shrugged slightly.  "You are a
gladiator, I think?"
     "Right, from Aljafir, come to see about my Lord Protector grant."
     "Good!  I am Vekhirn, chief wizard to the Satrap, may his days be long, and I
have need of a gladiator."  He gestured, and the door swung open.  "Come into my
sanctum, and I will explain what must be done."


     Lord Kinnishan, ruler of Chimlevtal, looked up from a litter of reports as his
chief adviser entered the study.  "If it's more about the assassination plot--"
     "No, that is grave enough, but we have other problems," Shau'nin Snowbeard said.
"Deeper ones, perhaps, in the long view.  Have you seen the Ruin Reef lately?"
     The shipping hazard known as the Ruin Reef lay two miles off shore to the
southeast from Chimlevtal.  It was a rocky barricade just below the surface of the
lake (most of the time).  When the water was clear, or when wind and waves exposed
them, the rocks could be seen to resemble a line of ruined buildings, but without a
closer examination that was normally possible, no one could say if that was a true
seeming.  There were natural formations that could give that appearance.  The Reef
was visible from Chimlevtal in good weather, but not from this room.  Without
comment, Kinnishan got up from the desk and went out onto the balcony, peering
southward past the end of the building.
     Shau'nin didn't follow him; he already knew what was to be seen.  "It would
appear that the Reef actually is formed on ancient ruins.  Or was."
     "It would appear," Kinnishan said grimly, "that they are ruins no longer.  I
presume you have a report from closer observation?"
     "Some gladiators are investigating now," the old Adantri said.  "Others are
traveling to Arvat and Zukal, even to Monuntial, to discover the faces behind the
assassination plot.  We should have information soon."
     "And then we will have to make plans.  I will not lose this city-state to the
forces of Chaos, come what may."

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  MURSKA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  I don't wanna hurt 
anybody's feelings or anything, but CHILDREN OF LLYR really goofed with their 0-5-0.  
The guys at THE BEARS like really pulled together to get a 3-0-1 this turn, moving up 
by 4.  MVP award for PADRE?  THE BEARS' proud of him after beating LYN SAIN and 
getting 22 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  BRUTE got smashed by WICKED 
WANDA, and lost 3 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think 
TOM THUMB should let SPELLSINGER be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about 
it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of LOST CAUSE must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are DEVILS OF THE DEEP?  LOST CAUSE, an easy 
team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
