     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.

     Well, shucks, it is very nice to be Duelmaster of The Red Sands.  I am honored.
I am not so much of a talker, but I do want to give acclaim to my fellow teammate,
Anna Beatrice, who is now a Lord Protector.  I wish I were more like her, so let me
tell you about her.

     +1 decise, -2 riposte, -2 initiative

          lo = 13-59-6
          other = 3-27-0
          favorites guess is LO, high/low, learns attack
She will make a great Lord Protector and will probably retire on The Isle.
     She would have made a better Duelmaster than me, but for now, I am down on my
knees praying for the ability to repeat and hold this lofty crown.  Come and get me.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Our battling duelmaster BROTHER JEROME has managed to hold the title, 
fending off BETTY's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, DEATHTONGUE.  
Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid DEATHTONGUE, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does ARDIVENT really have that many 
liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause FANDILS 
beats feet every time DEATHTONGUE smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about 
everybody wants a piece of TANIA PARK, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  
In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, UNCLE BOB went after BINGO LITTLE, who 
was higher by 22 points.  Well, when the dust settled, UNCLE BOB defeated BINGO 
     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?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ARDIVENT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends 
and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown

Fandil The wise

Tournament?  Mailer?  A laugh at Lily C. who had a "great" tournament for us at 0-2
and 2 skills learned.  Now, that is a typical Fandil!  Abba B was far better at 2-3

I shall post Anna Beatrices favorites when they are published. -- WOF

Brother Jerome -- Oh, good!  The title is such a burden, you know, and I just wasn't
up for that along with everything else.  Life is getting complicated again.  Or maybe

If that "Friendly Constable" puts his hand THERE again, I will cut it off at the
shoulder.  The very idea! -- Katerina Collin

Fandil -- Jennimys has told us, in a privately channeled communication, that she has
no intention of fighting anywhere, she says she going to retire to "the kind of place
Debby Tonte would like."  Sometimes I wish I could go with her! -- Jorja

Khsanth -- It would seem that Lily Catherine is taking care of the color of the

Our congratulations to Anna Beatrice. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors
