In the mountains west of Fratsfa:

     Elosjon had almost all his attention on the spell he was using.  A little on the
bear-golem itself, too, but spells had to be watched closely or they ran away from
you and did things you didn't expect.  And he didn't have to worry about secondary
attacks, not with someone like Fandil to watch his back.  That was just amazing--
Fandil, who had a high reputation among the experienced magicians of the Andorian
League, was watching HIS back!  If he survived, he'd have something really impressive
to tell his friends.  But that was for later; for now, he had to hold his ball of
lightning steady as it flew into the arms of the bear-golem.  It was getting a little
loose, trying to unravel.  He remembered his instructor warning him about that:
warning him that lightning didn't really want to form a ball, so he was going to have
to hold it together with his own will.  He could do that... if his attention didn't
stray.  He tightened it up and resisted the temptation to push it a little faster.
"Speed is the enemy of coherence in a lightning spell," his instructor had said.
Move it too fast and it would come apart.
                         *****   ***   *****   ***   *****
     Fandil watched the youngster for a moment and then nodded.  Elosjon lacked
experience, but his instincts and training were good.  If he survived this
expedition, he would be a fine magician, someday.  One to be reckoned with.  And for
the matter in hand, he was doing very well.  The boy could be left to it while he
himself did other things.
     Such as watched for other guards.  True, he had said this bear-golem had been
made almost casually to frighten away ordinary people.  He believed that.  But he
also believed that there would be at least one genuine, dangerous watchdog.  Maybe a
real demon, maybe a more carefully-made golem--
     A sudden scent of sulfur-and-something announced the arrival of the real guard.
Fandil scanned the hillside quickly and saw it condense out of a drift of mist or
smoke.  A true demon--it had the classic markers: red skin, hooves, horns, tail,
wings, nasty disposition.  Not an impressive demon, probably one of the lowest rank.
But still, a demon, and even the least of them required careful handling.
     Try simple things first.  He had dealt with true demons before and knew the
drill.  First a spell of banishment, with a little extra magical muscle behind it.
It... twitched.  Twitched?  Fandil's mustache bristled.  The demon should have
vanished in a cloud of saffron smoke!
     He took a deep breath and coughed a little at the sulfur fumes.  Not just as
simple as it looked, then.  Well, he could STILL handle it.  Fandil narrowed his eyes
and traced out the patterns, the ripples, in the Arcanum that had resulted from the
encounter between demon and spell.  Odd.  A flat in the key of aleph, a kink in
gimel, and... a medusa-knot in the tertiary subtext?  That should not be possible.
Medusa-knots were totally incompatible with the key of aleph.  No one but a Chaos-
mage would even attempt--
     Fandil's mind stumbled.  A Chaos-mage.  He had been worried about one earlier,
but he'd let that concern lapse.  Big mistake.  Maybe very big mistake, if this semi-
demon was alert and skillful enough to grasp him through center of the medusa-knot.
No time to try to close it now, even if he could.  The important thing was to get OUT
of the key of aleph before--  No.  He brought his unruly thoughts under control.
Don't even think about what could be done against him, because a truly skilled
opponent could pluck that right out of his mind.  More than one mage had defeated
himself that way.
     Key of epsilon, that's what he wanted.  Seven right-hand sharps and a tremolo.
Twist of lemon if there's time... yes!  There came the counter through the medusa-
knot:  the three-legged asp.  It rammed into the epsilon shield, was shredded,
twisted, and sent back.  Strong, though.  Even stopping it depleted his energies.
     The demon's form shifted, flowing through a truly disgusting ape into something
unearthly but compellingly female.  Fandil took refuge in humor, which no demon
understood:  What would his sister Fern call this?  A Calamitous Calla?  The shape
wobbled and fell in on itself.


     "Okay," Lenpro said, "not better a bad ruler than none.  How do you propose to
make sure we get a good ruler, though?  Or even tell if someone will make a good
ruler or not?"
     "Emperor Alonj of Fratsfa--"
     "Will not be acceptable to most people, because they believe he's either crazy
or a half-wit."
     "He is NOT crazy or a half-wit," Fern answered.  "And he has one thing that
others don't: legitimacy.  It would be legitimate for Alonj to govern the whole
     "But he doesn't want to," Sizzling Sunflower protested.  "We've all heard that."
     "And sometimes we have to do things we don't want to," her teammate Outcast
Orchid said.  "We've all heard that, too.  If Emperor Alonj can hold off whatever
this Korneth is trying to do until Andoria finds its feet, well, I figure he's got a
     Sunflower ignored that.  Pointedly.  "And if Emperor Alonj doesn't want to do
something, his wife will back him up," she went on.
     "Unless she sees it as his duty," Orchid said.  "Very strong on duty, Empress

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of KATI-TEI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain 
in KATI-TEI, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new 
top team--THE PLAGUE.  Good things come to those who fight well, as WANDERERS can 
attest, moving up by 0.  You could cut the tension with a scimitar as HELL HOUND of 
DA DOG POWNDAZ met the Duelmaster.  Now I can't insult HELL HOUND, as he has 
gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on 
too thick) So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging 
dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE STORM FRONT, alone and unchallenged.  
As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of THE PLAGUE, so did that sorry 
team shy from THE STORM FRONT If challenges were horses, VALARELLE could open up a 
fast food joint!  Take heed KATI-TEI, of the unprincipled action of HARBINGER OF WOE. 
By challenging COUNTRY RHODES, 29 points below him, HARBINGER OF WOE besmirches the 
noble art of dueling.  Bookies and HARBINGER OF WOE were more than a little 
surprised, as COUNTRY RHODES snatched an easy victory from HARBINGER OF WOE, gaining 
16 points.  FOUR PAWZ challenged TYEFOON TURMOIL!  Who says DA DOG POWNDAZ are just a 
bunch of wimps!  FOUR PAWZ of DA DOG POWNDAZ kept his wits as he bested TYEFOON 
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

though.  And I'll try to hold up the banner for us pikers! -- Tyefoon Turmoil

Grim Lurcher -- Good thing your "grimness" isn't contagious!  I was actually quite
happy after our fight. -- El Nino

Fratsfan Noble -- Why was I the least popular last turn?  Our bout was actually quite
amusing for me.  But then again some of my hobbies are watching grass grow and seeing
paint dry.  Oh, well. -- London Fogg

R.I.P. Assisd Rane.  Nothing great (8-11-13-15-17-13-7), but still a vast

Balin Chane -- No problem.  It isn't exactly fan mail, but mail is mail, right?  I
did send something to one of your stable mates this turn though. -- Stormy

The Wait -- NINE minutes?  Not a chance.  I don't have that much patience. -- Country

Angel of Arkham -- Does that mean you walk around with a lamp ministering to the
wounded and suffering?  If so, I think... I'll pass on that.  You already ministered
to me, and I don't want any more. -- Balin Chane

El Nino -- I'm going to tell your sister what you've been up to, and THEN you'll be
sorry! -- Grimm Lurcher

Hell Hound -- You beast!  Get off that table!  Leave that cake alone!  AAUUGH! --
P.S.  For your sake, I hope that chocolate really DOES make you sick.  Bad dog!

Ubba-Sathla -- With a name like that, how can anyone take you seriously? -- Marlin

The Wait -- "Somehow" definitely describes it.  I looked EVERYWHERE for those attack
skills.  High and low, under and behind, EVERYWHERE.  And they still weren't enough.

Ghost of Assid Rane -- Maybe you could burn a hole in the wall between here and the
"other side" and come visit? -- Balin Chane
