To the person or persons no longer identifiable who sequestered the chunk of marble
that washed up on the point last month, High Priest Trenilbloie says, "Don't expect
any sympathy from me.  You were warned.  Anyone who couldn't see that a chunk of
marble floating in on the waves was unusual deserves whatever happens to them."

Whoever took the lantern from the Glass Eye Tavern, be warned, you have no more than
four days remaining before the lantern activates automatically and eats you.  Or
whatever it does, but something totally dire.  Return it undamaged, and no questions
will be asked.  There is still time.

     Lenpro scanned the front page of the Andorian Star quickly and frowned.  On his
lean and hawk-like face, the expression was intimidating.  "I did not think it was a
good idea to allow that gadfly from the Star an interview," he said.
     Senator Sedalia, not one to be intimidated, shook his head.  "He struck just the
right note," the Lord Protector argued.  "Concern but not suspicion or alarm--yet.
After all, there may be a reasonable explanation for the king's failure to act.  We
have given them an opening to make that explanation."  He leaned back in his chair
and propped his heels on footstool.  Nowhere but at the Lenpro guildhouse was there a
chair so perfectly suited to him, and he intended to enjoy it while he could.  All
too soon, he would be headed back for Andor and the Royal Palace.  The rain drumming
on the roof did not make that an enticing prospect.  Memory of the shiftyeyed clerks
and minor ministers he'd met on the last trip was also depressing.
     "That insolent puppy of a reporter even quoted me!" Lenpro growled.
     Sedalia picked up his own copy of the tabloid and scanned the short article

     In an interview yesterday, Senator Sedalia stated that he had gone to Andor with
the intention of requesting the King's aid for the coastal areas battered by the
dramatic and tempestuous waves resulting from the sinking of Krael.
     "I and my colleagues felt that the devastation along the coast is properly a
matter for the King's attention," the senator and lord protector said.  "We did not
go seeking a hand-out, but only a helping hand."
     A spokesman at the Royal Palace, who declined to identify himself when queried
on Sedalia's visit, said that the matter had been "taken under advisement."  No
further development of this position could be obtained in Andor.
     Senator Sedalia's manager, Lenpro of Iaye, told this reporter that, "We will
pursue this matter."
     Anyone with information that might be of assistance is invited to communicate
with the Andorian Star office.

     "There is such a thing as bad publicity," the senator acknowledged, "even though
some people claim otherwise.  But this is not it.  Concerned and firm.  All cats are
still in their bags."
     Lenpro snorted laughter.  "Have you ever tried to bag a cat and keep it there?
Word that we're up to something will be all over northwestern Alastari faster than
horses can gallop."
     "I've often thought carrier pigeons should be roasted and eaten," Sedalia
agreed.  "Besides, those rumors will work in our favor.  Anyone who even thinks they
know something will be getting in touch."
     "Tchh!"  Lenpro stood suddenly.  "Are you so much of a fool, Sedalia?  The
Assassins' Guild has been dissolved--officially.  But it has long been an arm of the
King of Andoria, and I do not believe that he--or whoever is behind him--has
dispensed with it now."
     "As a Lord Protector--" Sedalia began.
     "--You are subject to the whims of the Grey Witch," Lenpro finished.  "There is
a strong possibility that she is involved in this business.  Do you think that a Lord
Protector assassinated for prying into her business would be resurrected by her
     Sedalia shifted uncomfortably.  As a politician, conspiracy theories came
naturally to him, but to involve the premier magician in Alastari with one did
seem... risky.  "There are powerful magicians who aren't on her payroll," he said.
"Fandil of Ardivent, Lady Adeolar of Aruak City, Master Cho--plenty of them.  And,"
now Sedalia stood, as well, "I have been involved in politics for a lifetime and
survived it.  I am no easy target for an assassin."
     Lenpro was silent for several minutes, staring past his gladiator at the rain-
curtained window.  Finally he sighed.  "The time for caution and second thoughts has
passed," he admitted.  "We have already begun, and the blades will fall where they
may.  Be careful."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yes, I won, and no, I won't apologize for it.  Sure, I'm glad Celedon didn't die
in the process, what with the fight being so uneven, but whatever it takes, right?
It's the name of the game, and here I am.  It.
     Actually, Celedon should be glad I'm the one who has to clean this place up.
It's worse than the Augean Stables, and for a very similar reason.  Which is no
surprise, considering who's been sitting up here.  They say you can't house-train
'em, and They must be right.


                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  It looks like the guys(?) at BIBLICAL HAMMERZ had a good week as they 
went 4-1-0 to put them in 2nd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch 
out for SURE BET, who flew up 13 points in the rankings after mashing YALO TACTSIE 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk 
out on the sands.  ZECHARIAH HAMMER was subdued by FRIENDLY CONSTABLE and drops 8 
points.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as VIRGINAL CONCUBINE killed the 
Duelmaster, VALNAKAUR, leaving WAYFARERS in mourning.  This incredible death has 
allowed, I might add, ATRION from THE EXILED ONES to ascend to the throne of 
Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  Can you believe they are paying me 
10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the AMEN-TEI arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad THE BIG GUYS?  Big bad THE BIG GUYS.  Big 
bad THE BIG GUYS.  AMEN-TEI's afraid of the big bad THE BIG GUYS.  Tra la la la la!  
And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause OXYMORONS beats 
feet every time THE BIG GUYS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this 
GALATIANS HAMMER you ask, with 19 points and a 3-2-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could 
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the AMEN-TEI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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 Spymaster
