     Fandil stared out over Fratsfa from his high window, then shook his head and
turned away to finish stowing a few necessary items into a carpet bag.  And told
himself, again, that Lenpro could take care of himself and was probably following up
some hot tip.  That he was not, in fact, his brother's keeper, and Lenpro wouldn't
thank him for this dither and fuss.  And that he himself had a hot tip to
     He pulled the carpet bag shut and buckled the strap.  All this dithering was
silly, pointless, insulting to his brother, and most of all, not like himself.  He
shook it off.  It was just a mood, and he didn't need it.  He picked up his bag and
glanced out the window one last time.  Odd how noisy a city could be--
     By all the gods, that wasn't just city noise, it was a mob!  Men with clubs were
standing in front of the Flower Shoppe, shaking their fists and shouting!  He
couldn't make out the words up here under the roof, so turned and plunged down the
stairs to find out what was going on.
     Lady Fern met him at the bottom of the stairs.  "Relax, Fandil," she said before
he could speak.  "This is just a rented mob, and I've dealt with them before.  You
have important work to do, so go and do it."
     "I can handle this."  She raised an eyebrow.  "Do you doubt me?"
     The young Fratsfan mage, Elosjon, came from the front room, face white and eyes
staring.  "They're calling for 'Fandil the Traitor' to be released to them!" he said.
The look he turned on the older mage was worried.
     Fandil cursed mentally but allowed no sign of his annoyance to show in face or
voice.  "That is just what people would call me who want to stop me.  It is only
words, Elosjon, not truth."
     "Did you hear any details?" Fern asked.  "Who hired the mob, for instance?"
     "Hired...?"  The young man blinked and looked over his shoulder.  "They were
hired?  But why?"
     "To make trouble, to stop me finding the magician behind the current
disruptions," Fandil said.  "It isn't an unusual move for a politician, you know."
Could this young man be so naive?  Hmm, if he'd been head down over the spell-books 
since he was old enough to understand them, yes, he probably could be.  Was.  "We'd
better get going."
     "It's Lord Orboj," Elosjon said.  "He's the richest man in Fratsfa.  Nobody
crosses him--if he names me a traitor, too, I'm through here!"
     "Well, if the city and your colleagues are so fickle and easily swayed, you
might do better elsewhere anyway," Fern said.  She snorted.  "Orboj--he doesn't come
here.  I don't cater to his tastes and never will."
     Fandil opened his eyes wide.  Fern catered to many tastes, if Orboj wanted
something different, he must be strange indeed, and notably perverse.
     There had been a lot of coming and going of the Flower Girls while they talked,
but Fandil only noticed it now because one stopped.  A redhead of statuesque
proportions and discretely indiscrete garb.  She leaned close to Elosjon, linking an
arm through his.  "You won't mind going out with ME, in fact, I know you'll like it,"
she half-whispered.  "And no one will notice if old Fandil trails along behind us."
She kissed his ear.  "I can hardly wait."
     Lady Fern laughed.  "Be good, Ravishing Redbud!  This--"
     "I am ALWAYS good," Redbud answered.
     Fern laughed again, and Elosjon had turned as red as the woman's hair and seemed
incapable of speech or even thought; he allowed her to pull him out the back door and
didn't notice Fandil following.
     "Take care," Fern said as Fandil passed her.  "And don't worry about me here, or
about Lenpro either.  Ours is a family that copes, you know that."  She pushed him
out and shut the door behind him.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My thanks, Izzco, that seems to have been just what I needed.  My assumption at
this point is that I'm going into retirement, but who can read the future?


P.S.  Oh, good heavens!  War flail, high/low, slash?  What nonsense!  If you want to
know: 13  12  6  11  15  17  10.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for ABBOL, who pummelled 
JENNIMYS COLLIN, to pocket 12 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, ABBOL 
was winsome, after beating JENNIMYS COLLIN and seeing her lose 12 points.  The arena 
was more crowded than usual this time, as IZZCO faced ARDIVENT's Duelmaster.  Now I 
can't insult IZZCO, as it 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 ARDIVENT is 
using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in ARDIVENT avoid DEATHTONGUE.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of INFERNAL LORDS, so did that sorry team shy from 
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ARDIVENT farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Congratulations to newly ordained Lord Protectors Izzco and Jacinthe.  Well deserved!
You will make a great pair heading off to The Isle. -- Fandil The Wise
P.S.  Izzco, how kind of you to give her the 14th so she could graduate also.  What a

A salute to the mighty Duelmistress--Jacinthe! -- WOF

Ah to be young again.  We shall see what the inexperienced mage, Elosjon, can do.  To
the quest....  Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Fandil The Wise

Mungo Burke -- You again?  I do not seem to "have it" against you.  You must be my
daddy? -- Uncle Bob

Polite Beggar -- Thank you for being so nice. -- Sis

We really enjoyed your DM Columns, Izzco.  Keep up the good work in The Big Time. --
Fandil The Wise

DeGotti -- An event to attract attention to The Red sands?  Hmmmmm.  You youngsters
just might be good for something yet.  Good idea!  Let's do it!  I would be glad to
assist. -- WOF

All -- Pardon the delay and amount of Fandil warriors on the sands.  We have two
Rookies starting in The Mailer and Anna Beatrice is entering the Inits at 10FE.  Soon
The Red Sands will be filled with Fandils.  (That read rather bloody, didn't it?) --
Fandil The Wise

You all are so rude!  I lose the throne and my team is the biggest losers! -- DeGotti

I figured I'd be doing this from a DM column, but hey crap happens: Here is the
design that is Izzco, I am only going to give his numbers and fav weapon just in case
I decide to run him some time; 15-17-9-13-7-6-17 SS.  I would really like to thank
Mannequin for his help on the design and suggestions on how to run a Ripper.  This is
style 9 out of 10 for me overall.  The last style is the damnable PS! -- DeGotti

Fandil -- Sometimes you just have to cut them loose!  Shanamanda went out as a
winner!  Which is more then Abbol is at the moment! -- DeGotti

Fandil -- You should know better!  I will always write a DM column as long as I am
able to! -- DeGotti

Temptation -- You're so sneaky!  I always surrender to temptation, because it so
often involves chocolate.  Er, do YOU have any chocolate for me? -- Jennimys Collin

Alf Mushpie -- You Rirorni sure have strange names! -- Tania Park

Uncle Bob -- You could probably killed by a moderately aggressive houseplant. --
Mungo Burke

Betty -- Listen, old bean, I didn't mean to hit you with that muffin, I was just
thinking of passing it and someone made a remark that startled me so my hand jerked
and, well, you see the result.  Not that being hit by a muffin is bad, but I'm afraid
it did have rather a lot of butter on it.  Healthy stuff, butter, good for the
complection, I hear.  Please don't cry. -- Bingo Little
P.S.  I don't want to hear about how when a rabbit sneezes a fairy is born, or any of
that stuff.  It makes me queasy.

Oh, no!  Shanamanda is leaving us?  Who will I talk to about hair styles? -- Tania

Betty -- I wouldn't dream of it!  That kind of thing leads to trouble. -- Bingo

DeGotti -- I agree that more managers would be good but, honestly, I don't think a
contest would do more than cause a short-term surge.  Contest managers just don't
care about the arena and they don't stay.  Not to mention that contests bring in such
a low crowd! -- Jorja
P.S.  As an example of how contests don't help in the long run, look at Aradi.
P.P.S.  Yes, I know, this doesn't help.  I do have some ideas, for what they're
worth, my own and those that other players have mentioned to me now and then, and if
you would like to contact me directly, Fandil has the address of my lightning-pigeon,
we might discuss things and put together a proposal for the Commission.

Our congratulations to Izzco. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors
