     "I wouldn't want easy," Sunflower told the vampire.  Not strictly true, all she
wanted right now was out of this... whatever.  Pocket dimension.  But any trick that
could startle her opponent was good.  Vampires were tricky to fight, and there was no
choice here but fight or die; a vampire wouldn't take a surrender.  Well, except to
kill the loser at more leisure.  But she, Sizzling Sunflower, was going to win.
     Which raised a question.  She pondered it as she parried the vampire's dark
blade in a shower of sparks, riposted, lunged and withdrew.  In this pocket
dimension, the nature of reality was, call, it suggestible.  Intuition told her that
letting the "suggestions" get too far with her would be a bad move.  But could she
use just a little?  Use the "Sunflower" part of her arena name against a vampire who
might not be able to bear sunlight?  She had noticed when they first entered this
place that there wasn't any true sun here; the sky was a bright gray, and that was
the source of the "daylight."
     Hmm.  This vampire was strong and fast, but not particularly skilled with a
blade.  Ah, make that, apparently not skilled.  She supposed it could be a ruse.  Her
gladiator's instincts told her it was no trick:  this vampire really wasn't a
swordmaster.  Probably didn't have to be.  Until now.
     Their swords crossed again, shrieking metal and the weight of the vampire's
strike jolting down her arm, but the blade, HER blade, flashed bright as the sun, and
the sparks this time were hot and golden.  The vampire reeled back, shrieking as
loudly as the dark blade had done.
     Sunflower pressed the attack.  A slash, and the vampire shied back, not as
confident as she'd been before.  A lunge.  Further retreat, and a stumble.  Another
lunge, a swerve as the fallen vampire kicked out at her.  Drive forward, keep the
creature on the defensive.  Hamstring, that's what she wanted.  Sunflower feinted for
the torso and then drove her sword--flaring hot gold again--into the vampire's leg.
     A scream such as she never wanted to hear again, a sudden cloud of oily black
smoke, and... nothing left.  The vampire was just gone.

West of Fratsfa:

     Elosjon heaved a sigh of relief when his feet touched firm ground again, and he
didn't care if Fandil heard him or not.  He had been afraid--no, he was afraid now.
In the tree, he had been terrified.  Of falling.  Of failing.
     The old mage gripped his arm, held one hand to his mouth briefly to signal
silence, and then pulled him away from the ravine, deeper into the forest.  Higher up
the mountain.
     After several minutes of silent walking, or at least walking without speech,
Elosjon figured he could risk speech.  "What about Redbud?" he whispered.
     "We keep going," Fandil said.  "She may, probably will, be fine.  And she's
doing a necessary job so that we can go forward and do a different and even more
necessary job.  Let us not waste her efforts."
     "Right, right.  The magician at Mountain Home."  He hesitated.  "I could be
wrong about Mountain Home.  I only have the word of Herlas of Zensu and he's, well,
his reputation isn't exactly--"
     "I feel sure that you ARE correct," Fandil said.  "All my instincts tell me so.
We will find an answer up there on the mountain.  If we get there soon enough."


     Orchid stared back toward the avenue and the slaughter.  "I don't believe it!
Those gladiators were waiting to kill the king--the golem they thought was the king.
How could they do such a thing?"
     "You saw how," the man beside her said.
     "Yes, but--"
     "Gladiators come all kinds, just like ordinary people," he went on.  "Some good,
some bad, and a lot of them on the fence.  And this hasn't been a good town for a
gladiator since the arena closed.  They were probably so glad to have a job that they
didn't look into it closely."
     "You're saying someone paid them to--?"
     "Of course."  He steered her into an alley just before a troop of mounted guards
rushed past.  "Very few people, gladiators or not, are genuine anarchist to kill what
they believe is the king just for... kicks."  He paused at the other end of the
alley, looked both ways, and hurried her across another street into an overgrown
     "But they must have expected the guards, why didn't they have an escape route
     "They were most likely told the guards wouldn't be a problem.  Don't you see?"
He stopped and turned to face her.  "They were set up to kill and to die."  He shook
her a little.  "Believe it, lady!  Lord Korneth doesn't care whose death he ordered,
and you will be a target if anyone noticed and recognized you.  Even if no one saw
you at the parade--any gladiator found in Andor today will be marked for death.  You
have to get out of the city!"

Readers:  I'm using Consortium managers and gladiators here simply because they're
available.  If anybody else wants to be mixed up in this, just say the word, by
personal, email, or diplo. -- the Scribe

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome KATI-TEI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with OF THE 
ORDER?  He actually beat KATI-TEI's FRIENDLY CONSTABLE, and walked away with 13 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at WANDERERS while they watched BALIN CHANE 
clobber HARBINGER OF WOE.  He lost 1 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  STANLOY MEDAR was reminded on the sands why SERGEANT2 is Duelmaster.  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, WANDERERS!  
The bums at THE PLAGUE couldn't face the challenges from WANDERERS!  No excuse for 
that!  What do people see in BALIN CHANE?  His 10-9-0?  WANDERERS ain't talkin', but 
he's got 50 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  KATI-TEI 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
