Istoreth, Skaithvarn:

     The guards hustled them away from the waterfront and up a steep street to the
next level of buildings.  They weren't hostile or aggressive toward their charges,
but it was plain that they meant to be obeyed.
     Raoul cocked an eye at Berdan, who was walking next to him and breathing a
little heavily.  "You know who this Lord Dankilvan is?  What his position is here in
Istoreth?"
     The ex-assassin shook his head.  "Not to be sure of it.  Istoreth is ruled by a
council of lords, and I suppose he's one of them, but...I don't know which one."
     "Looks like we'll find out soon," Jeri remarked as the leading guards turned
through a gateway.
     They passed through a courtyard lined with small evergreen trees that had been
pruned into the shapes of fantastic creatures.  The building beyond was large and
foreign-looking.  Windows and doors had pointed tops and elaborate fretwork filled
with sly faces around them, the columns of the portico were shaped like tree-trunks
and done with such care and detail that it was possible to identify the type of tree
used as a model.  They were hurried through halls so filled with rich-colored carpets
and rich-colored tapestry wall hangings and richly inlaid furniture made of rich and
exotic woods that everything became a blur, a sort of visual indigestion.  Only the
occasional detail penetrated the dazzle:  an exquisitely curved vase the color of the
sky in a dream that stood quietly in a niche, a single white rose lying on a table, a
statue of a slim dog like a miniature greyhound that suddenly stood up and stepped
toward them, ears cocked curiously.
     They came out on a terrace that looked over the harbor and the Trier Sea beyond.
There were trellises of roses, and overhead screens to make shade, a fountain
rippling and flinging rainbows into the air, and benches, a table, a decanter of wine
and several glasses, and Lord Dankilvan.
     It was impossible to guess his age.  For one thing, he looked like having a lot
of elven blood.  High elven blood, the kind that was tall, thin, and blond, Araoi.
After the extreme richness of the furnishings in the house, he was dressed with
surprising plainness.  Silk, of course, but subdued in color, maybe gray or some
grayed shade, it was hard to tell because it kept changing subtly in the changing
light, but plain.
     Raoul noticed that the guards didn't follow them onto the terrace.  Either this
man was very trusting, or he figured he could handle any trouble they made.  It would
make a difference which.
     "You declared yourselves Andorian when you docked," he said.  "Very well.  Tell
me about this man Peranis and what he is up to."
     "You met him?" Berdan asked.
     "He...approached me.  With a book he wanted to sell.  I have books of my own and
did not desire his.  He became angry.  Desperate, too, I think.  What is he doing,
what is he likely to do if pushed to it?"
     "He's making trouble," Raoul said flatly.  "He's a renegade assassin--"
     Dankilvan's expression chilled.  "Any trouble Andoria gets into because of its
foul Assassins' Guild is well deserved.  But I will not have you drawing Istoreth
into it."
     "We're trying to prevent that," Raoul said quietly.  Was there any point in
telling this man that King Mickeal had outlawed the Assassins' Guild?  Probably not.
After all, it had been outlawed once before and had come back.  "We want to catch
Peranis and destroy his book."
     "Not keep it for your own use?"
     "No."
     Dankilvan was silent for a long moment, one hand resting lightly on the stopper
of the decanter.  Raoul noted that the stopper was formed from some kind of crystal
as full of rainbows as the falling water and wondered if it had magical properties.
Finally the Istorthene said, "I turned this Peranis from my presence once he had said
his piece.  The other Lords of Istoreth, advised by me, gave him no hearing at all.
Eventually he was ordered to leave the city as a pernicious nuisance.  He did leave.
There was no boat departing for Alastari at that time, and a man answering his
description passed out through the south gate and took the road to Leemith."  An
expression of distaste passed across the Istorthene's face.  "They may have met his
demands in Leemith.  The Leemin are capable of anything."  With emphasis, he
repeated, "Anything."
     Raoul sighed.  "Then I guess we follow him to this Leemith place.  Can you tell
us anything about it?"
     "I can provide you with an escort who has some knowledge of the place,"
Dankilvan said.  "We employ Alastarians here--gladiators--for special jobs.  I offer
you a Delarquan woman, Hallie O'Dene.  You will find her knowledgeable, and reliable.
If you can bring yourself to work with a Delarquan."
     Before Berdan could utter the protest Raoul saw developing, the gladiator said,
"I'll work with anyone who can help me get the job done."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ZENSU.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  NEUROMANCERS after a 
sorry 1-1-1 might want to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 
'Can't fight no more' blues!  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe you 
didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to EXOTIC TASTES.  In the interest of 
complete reporting, ACHAIANS got a 3-2-1 last week, on their first time around.  THE 
DISC had cause to celebrate, after CMOT DIBBLER got 18 points by beating JOPHAN.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 14 
points to GAUCHO.  (Discrete enough, CRYSOPHASE?) WARRANT found out that ZENSU isn't 
a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior 
seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of BATTLE SCHOOL, alone and unchallenged.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of EXOTIC TASTES, so did that sorry team 
shy from BATTLE SCHOOL If challenges were horses, ARNIE EL SHEW could open up a fast 
food joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in ZENSU would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  ZENSU, I leave you 
now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Victory Tavern.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

Boy, talk about a lousy opening act.... -- Dan Steel

Braised Buffalo -- Very impressive workout you had there.  Mind giving me the name of
your personal trainer? -- Charlie Freak

Chunky Monkey -- How do you learn so much from doing so little? -- Razor Boy

Sentinel -- Ok, this has got to cease.  Your guy Fry Guy keeps getting matched up
with my low level guys.  The only good part is Fry Guy isn't learning much fighting
fighters with a third as many fights.  Why not have him challenge someone up the

list?  It will give him a better chance to learn and best of all keep him away from
my newbies and enable them to fight warriors near their own experience.  With your
pull, I know you can "fix" things. -- Wimpy

Fry Guy -- Go pick on someone your own size and experience.  Your 17 arena fights to
my 6 didn't leave me with much of a chance.  But thanks for the skills. -- Crazy Loon

Tiger Elf -- Wimpy told me anyone could beat you.  How come you suddenly got things
together when you face me? -- Mud Duck

Chopped Camel -- You sure weren't chopped liver.  Keep up the good work. -- Turkey
Lurkey

Exotic Tastes -- You should get together with that Cruel Pet Names guy.  What a pair
you would make. -- Wimpy

All -- Boy have got a fighter for you.  Next turn please welcome Old Biddy to the
Wimps Most Fowl.  You will just love her. -- Wimpy

Oy there Mr. Teris Sir!  Thank you for the nice skills.  I'll make a great deal on a
sausage....  Inna bun! -- CMOT Dibbler

Cassius -- Now try and rememba dat! -- Crysophase

Kid C. -- Oh geez, now it's kids....  Gotta run! -- Rincewind

Whipped Weasel -- Ha!  Youz be! -- T.E.

Leadfoot -- (startled look)  I taught you all that?  I don't even KNOW most of those
things. -- Arnie El Shew

Susan Sto Helit -- As embarrassing losses go, that one rates right up near the top of
the list. -- Jophan

CMOT Dibbler -- (crossly)  It looks to me like you already had all the initiative you
needed. -- Teris

Mud Duck -- A-HA!  I will not be mocked, foul fowl! -- Tiger Elf

King Love -- I don't find you lovable.  Odd, is it not? -- Sianna

Technogeek -- (dutifully)  Welcome to this fine arena. -- Graciela and Leeta, Beyond
the Pale
P.S.  We'd be more enthusiastic if we had a chance of beating any of your
warriors....

Crazy Loon -- (recoiling)  What a horrid notion!  You are indeed as crazy as a loon!
-- Tiger Elf

29 September 2003
All -- Let it be known that the Firm accepts SOL into its ranks.  The Firm is:
SunGod, Dark Spirit, Youngblood, Tripwire, and SOL.
