     Outcast Orchid looked down the hill at the jumble of buildings crowding along
the river and heaved a sigh of relief.  "Almost home, and I am *so* glad--I really
need a bath--all this lying around in ditches to hide just isn't--"
     "We cannot enter the city openly," Herlas said.  He sound scandalized by the
very idea.  "I doubt that I would be given free passage, and even if I were, you
should not be seen with someone having such a dark reputation--"
     "Oh, pooh!  *I* never heard of you, and probably most people haven't, and
besides, what makes you think I care?"  She squinted at him and opened her mouth to
make another comment, then closed it with the observation unspoken.  Maybe he did
secretly enjoy his reputation as being a "bad boy of magic," but there was no need to
force him to admit it.  Men were silly about things like that.  "I know the back-
streets really well," she said.  "And we're dirty enough no one will want to get
close and find out more."
     She could see him wanting to argue and was glad when he changed his mind and
just followed her.  She wove through narrow streets, narrower alleys, avoiding
people--who were avoiding them, so it was easy--and picking up familiar landmarks.
Getting close to the Flower Shoppe.
Sizzling Sunflower and the manager Lenpro came into sight, almost running, heading
for the same goal.
     Orchid looked at her teammate and blinked.  To Herlas, she said, "Does it seem
to you that Sunflower is... glowing?"
     He hesitated.  "She is certainly... radiant," he answered finally.  "You mean
that isn't normal for her?"
     "Maybe it's just the light."
     The two pairs came together at the back door to the complex of buildings that
formed the Flower Shoppe.  Orchid and Sunflower hugged each other, babbling about
"amazing things to report."  Lenpro looked at Herlas and raised an eyebrow, then
gestured for the younger man to precede him into the building.  Going first and
having people with unknown intentions at his back didn't appeal, but Herlas reminded
himself... well, he was sure there were extenuating circumstances, but he'd think
about them later.  Simply getting out of sight of the hordes of ill-wishers produced
by his imagination--they were bound to show up any minute now--was good enough for
now.  He went in.
     Lady Fern hustled them into her private quarters (leaving a full house of Flower
Girls crowding the nearest rooms eager for news).  She pushed them into chairs, waved
at a tray with bottles and glasses and plates of snacks, and sat down herself.  On
the edge of her chair.  "What has been HAPPENING?" she demanded.  "You've been gone
for DAYS--"
     "Days?  Really days?" Sunflower asked.  "It didn't feel like that long--"
     "A pocket universe," Lenpro said.  "Not particularly dangerous to Alastari in
itself, so far as I can tell, but it might indicate problems to come.  What if more 
of them form?  We should probably do something about it.  Where's Fandil?  He'll know
whether we should worry."  He waved to the others for their report.
     "There was a golem in Andor," Orchid said, "and it was killed by gladiators, and
then the gladiators were killed by a mob and it probably isn't safe to be a gladiator
around there right now.  And a chaos monster on the road when we were getting away."
     "A Lord Korneth who describes himself as being 'from Sengir', a place I have
never heard of, is in control of Andor," Herlas added.  "Most of the bureaucrats
support him, though whether that is from conviction or to safeguard their jobs I
don't know.  A golem was made to look like the king--I did the illusions--supposedly
to allay worry about him.  No one knows exactly what happened to the king, mind you,
but the people most likely to know anything at all believe that he is gone--wherever
and however--for good.  The later stuff, killing the golem and giving gladiators a
bad name, increasing the size of the standing army, vilifying elves and Aruaki," he
hesitated and shrugged.  "I believe that Korneth is using all this to distract or
pacify the general population while he takes complete power."
     "And the chaos monsters!" Orchid reminded him.  "Somebody sent real chaos
monsters to chase us when we left Andor.  We need to tell Fandil about them, he'll
know what to do."
     "I'm sure he will," Fern said.  She looked suddenly older.  "But Fandil is not
here.  He left days ago to track down a magician in the mountains, and we have heard
nothing since Ravishing Redbud, who accompanied him part of the way, returned."

In the mountains west of Fratsfa:

     The young mage Elosjon wiped sweat from his face.  Though the morning was cold,
they had been walking and climbing since first light, and that was hot work.  For
him, anyway; his studies had not included anything more physical than carrying a book
from shelf to table or lifting a wand.  Fandil seemed to be doing fine.  Pride could
only do so much.  Elosjon gasped, "Can we stop for a few minutes?"
     Fandil glanced around and gestured toward an outcropping with two trees which
would shield them from anyone ahead.  "Surely, and next time don't wait till you're
about to fall down to ask."
     "I wasn't sure it was okay to talk," Elosjon muttered.
     "I doubt that will make any difference," the older mage said, and smiled.  "We
aren't exactly walking silently, you know."  He paused and cocked his head sideways
as if listening to something he alone could hear.  "I don't think anyone--the mage,
at least--is paying attention.  The watchdogs, though... might be different."
     Elosjon shivered, wishing that his imagination didn't paint those possible
watchdogs in such demonic colors.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Talking trash from the throne in Kati Tei...
     It has been a while since that has happened...

     Time to clean out the mess and put down fresh newspaper.
     I guess Lucky Dawg should have ducked me.
     Can't be the best until you beat me anyway

     Besides Harbinger mashed Stanley....
     I have no idea who I will challenge, but I will try to keep it interesting.

Your Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon KATI-TEI, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for HELL HOUND, who pummelled 
VALARELLE, to pocket 17 points.  ASSID RANE certainly had a baffled expression on his 
face, after losing to AMBITIOUS GUARD and losing 5 points in the process!  Can you 
believe it?  THE WAIT apparently has better things to do as KATI-TEI's Duelmaster 
than show up and fight!  Now I can't insult COUNTRY RHODES, as she has gloriously 
dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) 
Word has it one team in KATI-TEI is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a 
charmed life!   
     And how sociable are KATI-TEI's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of WANDERERS, alone and 
unchallenged.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of DA DOG POWNDAZ, 
so did that sorry team shy from WANDERERS Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, BALIN CHANE is the most challenged 
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  I.C. SLEET of THE 
STORM FRONT, possessing a sorry record of 7-14-1, lost his last battle to AMBITIOUS 
GUARD of KATI-TEI.  Young warriors, take note!  Such is a failure's lot!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  KATI-TEI, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Dripping Blade.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Stanloy -- No... don't go....  You need to feed me some more skills. -- Harbinger of

Stanloy -- Congrats on getting the call!!!  I hope Jorja gives us a postmortem on
your design. -- Reaper

DA1 -- Well fought... -- Ubba-Sathla

RU Gods -- What is the deal with this place?  4WT 4DF is really not what I am looking
for.  I shall sacrifice cultists until you provide the appropriate talent. -- Reaper

The Wait -- I can't believe that we even got matched up with one another... the odds
of that were ridiculously small.  If I knew you were coming I surely would have
tweaked things and possibly even out waited The Wait!  LOL... congrats on the win...
keep my throne warm for me. -- Lucky Dawg

Country Rhodes -- Well done... evidently a bad strategy on my part. -- Hell Hound

Valarelle -- <shakes his head in disappointment> -- Four Pawz

Grim Lurcher -- Any relation to lurch himself?  Da da da da... <clap clap> --

The Wait -- I'm coming for you this turn, ya big tin can!  Luckily I own me a big ol'
can opener! -- Red Dawg

Harbinger of Woe -- For a minute there, I heard your name as "Hamburger of Woe," and
I was going to say that I'd met some like that.  But you're somebody else, I guess.
Although, if you're the onions on the hamburger, you might well be harbinging woe. --
Stanloy Medar

Hell Hound -- If I was a city girl, I might have trouble with you, but in the
country, we can get along with hounds. -- Country Rhodes

Four Pawz -- Is that like, "two pawz, four pawz, six pawz, a dollar"? -- Valarelle,
idly curious

London Fogg -- Aren't those Commission clerks the pits?  Any hint of facial hair, and
you're a dwarf, doesn't matter how tall you are.  You'd think they might get a clue
sometime that there's more to being a dwarf than having a soup-strainer under your
nose. -- Balin Chane

Howlitzer -- You're a dog kind of person?  Weird, I could've sworn you were a juke
box. -- Grimm Lurcher

Huh, graduation.  I didn't really expect this.  Two years, you get used to a place,
and now I have to move.  Damn. -- Stanloy Medar
P.S.  9-14-15-11-13-9-13  GS  low/low.  Who'd'a thought?

Red Dawg -- If you're fast off the mark and get to me with a challenge today, I will
do my best to teach well. -- Stanloy Medar

Four Pawz -- In a small arena, you don't always have much choice in challenges.  No
offense taken. -- Country Rhodes
P.S.  Although there probably are limits beyond which offense would be taken.
