Thane Tolimanj urges the people to stay off the waterfront at night.  There are
monsters out there.  Really!  They are dangerous.  This is not a spectator event.

A usually reliable source in the Andorian capital has suggested that the apparitions
off the coast of Convincian may be due to some plot between the traitorous Raltumans
and the Black Kaliv of Kurukar.  Citizens are urged to regard all Raltumans as
potential enemies of Andoria.

Thane Tolimanj announced today that no actions would be taken against Raltumans in
his shire.  "Raltumas as a whole has not withdrawn from the Andorian League," he
said.  "Only Aradi has done that, and we see few Aradians here, for which we are
grateful.  Anyone making an unprovoked attack on a Raltuman, or vandalizing Raltuman
property, will be treated as a common criminal.  This whole matter has been referred
to the King, and we expect a clear policy statement from him at any moment."

     Lenpro scanned the front page of the Andorian Star quickly and frowned.  On his
lean and hawk-like face, the expression was intimidating.  "I did not think it was a
good idea to allow that gadfly from the Star an interview," he said.
     Senator Sedalia, not one to be intimidated, shook his head.  "He struck just the
right note," the Lord Protector argued.  "Concern but not suspicion or alarm--yet.
After all, there may be a reasonable explanation for the king's failure to act.  We
have given them an opening to make that explanation."  He leaned back in his chair
and propped his heels on footstool.  Nowhere but at the Lenpro guildhouse was there a
chair so perfectly suited to him, and he intended to enjoy it while he could.  All
too soon, he would be headed back for Andor and the Royal Palace.  The rain drumming
on the roof did not make that an enticing prospect.  Memory of the shiftyeyed clerks
and minor ministers he'd met on the last trip was also depressing.
     "That insolent puppy of a reporter even quoted me!" Lenpro growled.
     Sedalia picked up his own copy of the tabloid and scanned the short article

     In an interview yesterday, Senator Sedalia stated that he had gone to Andor with
the intention of requesting the King's aid for the coastal areas battered by the
dramatic and tempestuous waves resulting from the sinking of Krael.
     "I and my colleagues felt that the devastation along the coast is properly a
matter for the King's attention," the senator and lord protector said.  "We did not
go seeking a hand-out, but only a helping hand."
     A spokesman at the Royal Palace, who declined to identify himself when queried
on Sedalia's visit, said that the matter had been "taken under advisement."  No
further development of this position could be obtained in Andor.
     Senator Sedalia's manager, Lenpro of Iaye, told this reporter that, "We will
pursue this matter."
     Anyone with information that might be of assistance is invited to communicate
with the Andorian Star office.

     "There is such a thing as bad publicity," the senator acknowledged, "even though
some people claim otherwise.  But this is not it.  Concerned and firm.  All cats are
still in their bags."
     Lenpro snorted laughter.  "Have you ever tried to bag a cat and keep it there?
Word that we're up to something will be all over northwestern Alastari faster than
horses can gallop."
     "I've often thought carrier pigeons should be roasted and eaten," Sedalia
agreed.  "Besides, those rumors will work in our favor.  Anyone who even thinks they
know something will be getting in touch."
     "Tchh!"  Lenpro stood suddenly.  "Are you so much of a fool, Sedalia?  The
Assassins' Guild has been dissolved--officially.  But it has long been an arm of the
King of Andoria, and I do not believe that he--or whoever is behind him--has
dispensed with it now."
     "As a Lord Protector--" Sedalia began.
     "--You are subject to the whims of the Grey Witch," Lenpro finished.  "There is
a strong possibility that she is involved in this business.  Do you think that a Lord
Protector assassinated for prying into her business would be resurrected by her
     Sedalia shifted uncomfortably.  As a politician, conspiracy theories came
naturally to him, but to involve the premier magician in Alastari with one did
seem... risky.  "There are powerful magicians who aren't on her payroll," he said.
"Fandil of Ardivent, Lady Adeolar of Aruak City, Master Cho--plenty of them.  And,"
now Sedalia stood, as well, "I have been involved in politics for a lifetime and
survived it.  I am no easy target for an assassin."
     Lenpro was silent for several minutes, staring past his gladiator at the rain-
curtained window.  Finally he sighed.  "The time for caution and second thoughts has
passed," he admitted.  "We have already begun, and the blades will fall where they
may.  Be careful."

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, heck in a handbasket!  I never did want to study kung-fu, I don't have the
reflexes for it.  But the Commission keeps throwing this guy at me and insisting that
I learn.  I really don't go for being pushed like that, you know?  It makes me dig in
my feet.
     Which isn't what I actually wanted to say.  I was going to just be non-committal
and hand over to Gilgor, who should be doing this column if the world was fair.  But
then, who said anything was fair?

                                    Rambling Ox

     The Ox is a good enough person, for a human, though stupid.  But then, he's a
human.  I can't hold him to blame for that, I suppose.  But if he put as much effort
into studying Kung-Foot and the other martial arts as he does into resisting those
studies, he would not have had cede this column to me.  Overgrown, dumb, and short-
sighted.  But at least he's courteous.

                                 Gilgor Hammerfoot,
                                 Master of Kung-Foot and Other Arts

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  KATI-TEI needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for LADY 
GRACE HAMMER?  TEMPLARZ HAMMERZ's proud of her after beating GHETTO DEFENDANT and 
getting 19 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  GHETTO DEFENDANT's match with LADY 
GRACE HAMMER cost him a loss of 12 points!  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to 
KUNG-FU MASTER, BUT RAMBLING OX is still the Duelmaster because he has the most 
recognition points!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours 
sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     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!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  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
