Fratsfa:

     The slum they were in decayed into a worse slum, and that faded into an area
that was half ruins and half buildings that just managed to stay upright.  There were
people in the ramshackle structures even so.  Sizzling Sunflower saw one woman
dressed in rags--literally in rags, and it was impossible to guess her age--staring
at them as though they were the most alien and fantastic beings imaginable.  Perhaps
they were, here.
     Lenpro touched her arm.  "Don't stare at them," he said quietly.
     "How can they live like this?" Sunflower demanded.
     "A wise man once said to me that if you don't know where people are coming from
and where they're going, you can't judge the route they've chosen."
     "That sounds, I don't know, profound or something, but what does it mean?"
     "It means you should let be, until someone actually asks for help, or at least
until you know more."  They turned a corner--there were no long straight avenues
here--and approached the crumbling wall that enclosed the Old Ruins.
     Lenpro frowned.  The wall was shimmering, faintly but unmistakably.  Or maybe it
weren't, maybe it was just heat waves or sun reflecting off snow.  Both at once?  It
was an odd thing, anyway, and probably magical, and as such it should be approached
with caution.  And preferably with a mage in hand, but Fandil wasn't here.  Lenpro
didn't think they had time to waste going back to get him.  He glanced at Sizzling
Sunflower.
     She was staring at the wall, wide-eyed.  "Weird!" she said, and smiled.  "This
should be something new, let's try it!"
     Lenpro shook his head.  It was a long time since he'd been that young.  But
maybe hers was the right attitude anyway.  "Yes, let's."  He stepped up to the
gateway.
     The sensation was a familiar one: they had stepped through some kind of
dimensional gateway.  And if he'd had any question about that, what he saw beyond it
would have made all certain.  They were not on Ghea any more.
     The buildings were as ruined as he had expected in this oldest part of Fratsfa,
if it still was based on that city.  But heaps of rubble reared into narrow mounds of
unnatural height, and broken walls loomed and tottered, seeming to hang in mid-air
when they should be collapsing.  The flagstoned streets lay at unexpected angles, and
sometimes there was nothing at all between the stones.  They say people, more than
Lenpro had expected, but not one who appeared normal.  He began to wonder how he
appeared to them and glanced over at Sizzling Sunflower.
     She looked half plant, or maybe like a sunflower that was half human.  She
touched his arm with one leafy green hand.  "This is so neat!  It's a whole other
world here!"  When she smiled, her teeth were striped like sunflower seeds.
     "It is that," Lenpro agreed.  He glanced back to check on their line of retreat.
They didn't have a line of retreat, there was no sign of the gateway through which
they'd come.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for TERRINDAR, who flew up 28 points in the 
rankings after mashing ROBERT DUNLAP like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ROBERT DUNLAP was overcame 
by TERRINDAR and drops 31 points.  In front of all the crowds, JANIE JONES took the 
Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are 
paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid WANDERERS, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does KATI-TEI really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try 
this one:  WANDERERS + Weapons That go Boom = THE PLAGUE + Avoid City.  Well just 
about everybody wants a piece of BREAK STUFF, who was this week's most challenged 
warrior.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
