     Lenpro was no magician, but he could tell that something had happened...even if
two men over in the corner hadn't been screaming and holding their heads.  Something
magical, probably.  He put down his beer, took the glass out of Dandy's hand--he
didn't want to know what weird concoction was in it--and stood.  "We have to get back
to the Flower Shoppe," he said.  "Fandil may need me."
                         *****   ***   *****   ***   *****
     Fandil was okay.  That was a relief, but not entirely unexpected.  His brother
was tough, and experienced; he would know how to defend himself.  Against...whatever
that had been.  He raised an eyebrow inquiringly.
     "I don't know either," Fandil said.  "Some kind of magical barrier, yes.  But
whether it's intended to seal up the magical activity of Fratsfa, or block magical
communication with somewhere else--Andor, for instance, or what exactly was
intended...?"  He shrugged.  "I don't know who, I don't know why.  But I think we
need to go to Andor physically and soon."
     "I thought you were concerned about the safety of Emperor Alonj," Lady Fern
     "We are," Lenpro answered quickly.  "But I would think we could leave that in
your capable hands, sister."
     Fern frowned but nodded.  "I'll take care of it."


     Senator Sedalia looked at his hands and sighed.  The oars had rubbed them into
blisters, despite the gloves he'd worn.  His back ached.  And he loathed the clothing
that went with his costume.  Would anyone here in Amen-Tei seriously believe that he
was an itinerant peddler?  At least the gods favored him in one thing, and Senator
Dole was no longer resident in this town.  He couldn't have fooled Dole for a minute;
one senator always knew another.
     Sedalia had argued with the demon on the Black Ship, Tashkemk, that this
masquerade was unnecessary and would be unconvincing, but arguing with demons turned
out to be monumentally unproductive.  In a human, the senator would have suspected a
simple enthusiasm for the theatrical, but did that apply to demons?  But the worst
was that Tashkemk had insisted that the senator's companion, Gissanniah, remain on
the Black Ship as a hostage for his, Sedalia's, performance.  Dammit, he had given
the demon his WORD.  If they couldn't trust him, why employ him on this fool's
errand?  And when he'd asked what guarantee HE had of the young woman's safety, the
demon had just LAUGHED.
     All of which put the senator in a really bad mood, so that when a dockhand
slouched up and sneered at the wretched little boat, skiff, whatever was the proper
term, why, he let fly with some harsh language that would have blistered the hide on
a rhinoceros.  Which, Sedalia pointed out in a calmer afterthought, the dockhand
rather resembled--big, ugly, stupid, with a misshapen nose, and a singularly unlovely
     It turned out that this was precisely the way one should approach sneering
dockhands, and the fellow tethered the vessel to the dock in some appropriate
manner--Sedalia didn't want to know the details--and helped unload the cargo.
     The senator didn't care about most of the cargo.  Yes, it was valuable, but it
was just stuff, and a man who couldn't pour out wealth to achieve a goal had no
business in politics.  Still, it wouldn't do to let the dockhand think he had secret
agendas, so he asked questions about rental space and then watched closely while the
cargo was loaded on a cart, hauled to a sturdy warehouse, and stored in a sealed
room.  One leather case with a shoulder strap and brass fastenings he kept with him.
     Cargo dealt with, Sedalia's next goal was a dockside tavern called the Pig's
Eye.  He had no great hopes of it but found the place cleaner than he'd expected,
busy but not raucous.  Of course, he had no inherent objection to "raucous,"
political conventions were always like that.  But which of these rather ordinary
looking people was his contact?  What would a demon's contact look like, anyway?  It
couldn't be another demon, surely, not here in the open.

     Well, what are you looking at, KATI-TEI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see ROBERT DUNLAP win a fight and gain 29 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ROBERT 
DUNLAP beat JANIE JONES and JANIE JONES lost 24 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, KATI-TEI may be getting bland, as GHETTO 
DEFENDANT stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how 
else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
KATI-TEI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  THE PLAGUE the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like MEDAL OF HONOR H3 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  STANLOY MEDAR was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now 
was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for KATI-TEI's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in KATI-TEI to get a drink than The Warty Toad! 
Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice!  So 
nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this 
winter-- Snide Clemens

Raise the Abyss -- Oh, yes?  And what do you see this doing to sea level?  Are we
looking at heavy coastal flooding here?  Do we expect the mountains to drop by way of
balancing things?  You people never think about the consequences!  This is not a
small thing you are proposing. -- Gothelcina

Harbinger of Woe -- There's plenty of woe around without anyone harbinging it.  Why
not let it, the woe, I mean, which they say life is full of, just creep up on us and
kind of move in without fanfare?  It's easier to deal with that way, which, I
suppose, now that I think about it, decreases the Woe Coefficient.  From your point
of view, this might be bad, I guess.  But it'd work better for me. -- Balin Chane

Ghetto Defendant -- That's such an ambiguous title.  Are you defending the ghetto, or
are you FROM the ghetto defending yourself, or what?  Inquiring minds, needing
something to talk about, are mildly curious. -- Terrindar

I think the real problem with the Ambitious Guard, who comes out with a warhammer and
starts bashing around with it, is that he isn't a basher by nature.  His normal style
is probably something with "parry" in the name, befitting a guard.  Still, his bad
luck, my good luck.  I can live with this. -- Valarelle

I don't believe in the Honesty of that Merchant, and nothing can change my mind.
Very little will make me be even polite about it, so there. -- Stanloy Medar

Janie Jones -- I suppose you felt you had to do that.  You Fratsfans are always big
on Making a Statement of Rectitude, or whatever you call it.  But even though I
mostly agree that most assassins don't qualify as "noble" except sometimes in the
sense of "born to family considered noble," there are times when it's a fair call,
you know.  Sometimes there's dirty work that has to be done.  Come along on a job
sometime and I'll show you. -- Jerroem Farmer, second-class noble, more or less, and
assassin (third class) by unwilling necessity

Valarelle -- One does as one must.  Meet me behind the arena tonight and we'll so who
must do what then. -- Moro Sullogra, Ambitious Guard

Stanloy Medar -- I will have satisfaction for the debt unpaid by your departed
teammate Flutterlee.  Consider how much happier you would be if you simply paid it
and had done with the matter.  I await your response. -- Londrus Korlins, Merchant of
this City

Sergeant3 -- You military types are always like this.  Always coming along making
trouble.  Walk the streets in my boots sometime and see how much you like people
throwing their weight around with violence, bub. -- Tobie Stone, (usually) Friendly

Sergeant2 -- You're not exactly broke, you could have spared me enough for a meal,
couldn't you? -- Josem Green, Beggar and student of Emma Le Poste
