Fratsfa:

     Sizzling Sunflower had said that the obstacles on the way back to the true
Fratsfa, three mancats and two more ordinary men, would not be a problem and she
meant it.  After all, she was a skilled gladiator, a Lady Protector, and she had just
defeated the champion of this place, the vampire.  She was confident of her prowess,
and by the way they moved, she could see that her opponents were also confident--of
HER prowess.
     She smiled and moved into the attack, her blade flickering in diffused light of
this place.  Five opponents at once, well, she wasn't alone, either, and though
Lenpro was, from her point of view, old, she knew he was resolute and suspected that
he had considerable skill himself.  They could handle this.
     Her target was the group of mancats, Aruaki, probably, who had been frozen in
mid-change.  She judged them to be the most dangerous, and she was, after all, the
Lady Protector.  They seemed nervous, not at all eager to close with her, which
showed more intelligence than she'd expected of them.  Not that it would do them any
good.
     She grinned and leaped forward suddenly, right into the nearest one.  There was
a bright flash, almost blinding, but she didn't need to see to recognize the feeling
of her blade driving into flesh and bone.  She wrenched it free, blinking away after-
images, and pivoted toward where the next-closest had been.
     He wasn't there!  As her vision cleared, she saw that he was backing away, and
the other had frankly turned and run.  Well, she was going to get at least ONE more!
She bared her teeth in a snarl and stalked after the one still present and on his
feet.  Saw his eyes widen in true fear as he backed faster, apparently afraid to turn
his back on her.  He was blinking and squinting, too, and there was something wrong
with his shadow.
     "Sunflower!  Let him go--the portal is clear--"
     She did a little blinking of her own, shook her head but the voice didn't go
away.  Remembered finally that she had a partner here, and glanced around.
     Lenpro had both his men down, one was dead, she couldn't tell about the other.
He was squinting at her.
     "Let that creature go," he said.  "We have more important things to do.  Ah, you
might sheathe your sword...."
     She looked down at the blade in her hand and realized that it was hot gold,
bright as sunlight.  Reluctantly, it seemed a shame to hide that glorious light, she
slid it into the scabbard.  The world here seemed a lot darker after she did.  Would
it still blaze with sunlight in the ordinary world?  Perhaps not, but there was only
one way to find out.  She squared her shoulders and faced the portal.  "Let's go,"
she said.

South of Andor:

     Outcast Orchid looked at her companion.  He had given his name as though it
should mean something to her, but she'd never heard of him.  "Herlas of Zensu?"
     "Yes, to my shame, I am."
     She shook her head.  "That doesn't mean a thing to me, but I can tell you that
as far as I'm concerned, saving my life makes up for a lot."  She looked ahead.  The
farm track they were following wandered into a field and stopped.  "Where do we go
from here?  How long before we can get back on the main roads?  I don't like being
lost."
     "We aren't lost," Herlas said.  "I know where we are, and how to get to Fratsfa
from here--if the Chaos monsters haven't gotten there ahead of us."  He guided her to
the left, into an overgrown woodlot.  "If they have... no reason to go there at all.
Or not to, of course."
     "Well, at least you aren't suggesting that we flee Andoria to escape the
monsters--"
     "What would be the point?  Once they've conquered Andoria, which is their goal,
I think, they will go on to the rest of Alastari, and from there the rest of Ghea."
     "Lady Greywand might have something to say about that."
     "Or she might not.  She's insane, after all."
     The woodlot was small, and on the other side of it was another overgrown track.
     "How can you say that?" Orchid demanded, pulling a twig from her hair.
     "Based on the available evidence," Herlas answered quietly, "but let's not go
into that now."  He gestured slightly, indicating something ahead of them.  "We're
about to have trouble."
     Orchid looked.  One of the monsters was waiting in the middle of the field.  She
drew her sword, unwilling to give up without a fight.  A limb of the thing
transformed into a sort of blade in response.  She foresaw difficulty with an
opponent who could change forms at will.
     Beside her, heat and flickering lights and a smell of ozone as her companion
cast a spell.  Herlas said, "I think I can hold it to one shape, but be quick."
     She nodded and danced forward, her sword beginning to trace the dangerous
patterns of her style.  Sunlight flared along the edge of the blade, clean as
morning, and the monster shied back.  She whirled past it, moving constantly without
pause, slicing and dicing methodically.  Ichor flowed thickly.
     It made a sound.  Why should a Chaos monster that looked a little bit like a
person on a horse make a sound like wind chimes and sea gulls?  Well, why not, it was
chaos, right?  Anything goes, that's what chaos was all about.  Except that she got
the feeling it was upset.  Good!  It should BE upset.  Coming here and trying to take
over HER world--the very idea!  She spun back twoard it, she had a second sword now
in her other hand, didn't know where she'd gotten it, but that didn't matter.  She
hit it like a veritable wall of blades, and every gobbet of flesh she hacked off
burst into flames before it could hit the ground and was destroyed.
     Destroyed utterly.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
FRATSFA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, FLOWER GIRLS, since 
BLOOD AND GUTS! took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this 
keeps up, OTTO'S PARTS, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 
in the rankings?  BLOOD AND GUTS! turned their 5-0-1 turn into a 1st place rank in 
the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see JOLLY ROGER win a fight and gain 21 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, JOLLY ROGER beat TORTURING TULIP and TORTURING TULIP 
lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  OUTCAST ORCHID challenged FRATSFA's 
Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, FRATSFA 
may be getting bland, as NOVERCAPHOBIA stays top dog in the city.  The Victory 
Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  
From FRATSFA's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  OTTO'S PARTS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
it looks like FLOWER GIRLS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  MELOPHOBIA was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Whoa!  I'll even buy GROUIK a drink 
tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his good 
side!  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to  see ANASTRIANNA and 
THE ORDER at The Victory Tavern tonight celebrating their bloodfeud victory over 
SAVAGE SNOWBALL.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches 
up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the FRATSFA arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Novercaphobia -- Congrats on your DM crown.  Tell your boss there has been a new
"rule" enacted whereby there is a five point loss for no DM Column.  Let's see where
Watch-Out scores next turn.  (chuckle)  Then you can all drown your sorrows in the
pleasures of The Flower Shoppe.  See you then. -- Lady Fern

Melophobia -- That wasn't nice at all!  I did say NO. -- Caustic Crocus

I don't know why I didn't get to fight.  I wanted to gloat! -- Gloating Gardenia

I killed M. Chardinee?!  If I had known that would get me graduated, I surely
wouldn't have done it!  Oh, I reached 18PP?  I guess it was okay that I go out with a
kill. -- Outcast Orchid (Who killed Chardinee because he was doing something he
shouldn't have.  It's all right, Lady Fern; he paid cash first.)

Kung-Fu Master -- You wasted your time in the arena; you would have gotten much more
pleasure from a visit to me at The Flower Shoppe.  Perhaps I would have let you win
that romp.  (wink) -- Torturing Tulip

Ruthless Jaywalker -- You are kinda cute.  Run, don't walk, to see me again at The
Flower shoppe.  This time you can be on top.  (wink) -- Savage Snowball

Two -- Now, a gal is not going to reveal her beauty secrets.  You know that!  (I may
or may not have had a cool ICS--If Challenged Strategy.) -- Savage Snowball

Bold move, youngster!  Man overboard, do you know the meaning of my name?  I'm
slippery... be careful, considering your own name... -- Zoum la Bouse

Toker -- Youhou!  Are you around?  Is someone willing to count while Toker is out of
town? -- Le Pentarque

Savage Snowball... -- I'll come back and melt you! -- Two (times)

For those interested, Outcast Orchid's published favorites are--War Flail, Low/Low,
learns attack. -- Lady Fern</div>

Areopolite -- I'd love a rematch in ten turns, as I need to train my can opener
skills. -- Hot Stuff

Jolly Roger -- I was definitely jolly after our brief encounter, my friend. -- Not So
Hot

Praecisus -- Not a great matchup for me and it showed.  Well done. -- Flame Thrower

Runny Nose -- Let me get you a tissue so we can clean up that mess you left on the
arena sands!  Looks like you might have a fever now too. -- 451 degrees

Anastrianna -- I hate when that happens!  Shoulda woulda coulda I suppose. --
