     Lenpro was no magician, but he could tell that something had happened...even if
two men over in the corner hadn't been screaming and holding their heads.  Something
magical, probably.  He put down his beer, took the glass out of Dandy's hand--he
didn't want to know what weird concoction was in it--and stood.  "We have to get back
to the Flower Shoppe," he said.  "Fandil may need me."
                         *****   ***   *****   ***   *****
     Fandil was okay.  That was a relief, but not entirely unexpected.  His brother
was tough, and experienced; he would know how to defend himself.  Against...whatever
that had been.  He raised an eyebrow inquiringly.
     "I don't know either," Fandil said.  "Some kind of magical barrier, yes.  But
whether it's intended to seal up the magical activity of Fratsfa, or block magical
communication with somewhere else--Andor, for instance, or what exactly was
intended...?"  He shrugged.  "I don't know who, I don't know why.  But I think we
need to go to Andor physically and soon."
     "I thought you were concerned about the safety of Emperor Alonj," Lady Fern
     "We are," Lenpro answered quickly.  "But I would think we could leave that in
your capable hands, sister."
     Fern frowned but nodded.  "I'll take care of it."


     Senator Sedalia looked at his hands and sighed.  The oars had rubbed them into
blisters, despite the gloves he'd worn.  His back ached.  And he loathed the clothing
that went with his costume.  Would anyone here in Amen-Tei seriously believe that he
was an itinerant peddler?  At least the gods favored him in one thing, and Senator
Dole was no longer resident in this town.  He couldn't have fooled Dole for a minute;
one senator always knew another.
     Sedalia had argued with the demon on the Black Ship, Tashkemk, that this
masquerade was unnecessary and would be unconvincing, but arguing with demons turned
out to be monumentally unproductive.  In a human, the senator would have suspected a
simple enthusiasm for the theatrical, but did that apply to demons?  But the worst
was that Tashkemk had insisted that the senator's companion, Gissanniah, remain on
the Black Ship as a hostage for his, Sedalia's, performance.  Dammit, he had given
the demon his WORD.  If they couldn't trust him, why employ him on this fool's
errand?  And when he'd asked what guarantee HE had of the young woman's safety, the
demon had just LAUGHED.
     All of which put the senator in a really bad mood, so that when a dockhand
slouched up and sneered at the wretched little boat, skiff, whatever was the proper
term, why, he let fly with some harsh language that would have blistered the hide on
a rhinoceros.  Which, Sedalia pointed out in a calmer afterthought, the dockhand
rather resembled--big, ugly, stupid, with a misshapen nose, and a singularly unlovely
     It turned out that this was precisely the way one should approach sneering
dockhands, and the fellow tethered the vessel to the dock in some appropriate
manner--Sedalia didn't want to know the details--and helped unload the cargo.
     The senator didn't care about most of the cargo.  Yes, it was valuable, but it
was just stuff, and a man who couldn't pour out wealth to achieve a goal had no
business in politics.  Still, it wouldn't do to let the dockhand think he had secret
agendas, so he asked questions about rental space and then watched closely while the
cargo was loaded on a cart, hauled to a sturdy warehouse, and stored in a sealed
room.  One leather case with a shoulder strap and brass fastenings he kept with him.
     Cargo dealt with, Sedalia's next goal was a dockside tavern called the Pig's
Eye.  He had no great hopes of it but found the place cleaner than he'd expected,
busy but not raucous.  Of course, he had no inherent objection to "raucous,"
political conventions were always like that.  But which of these rather ordinary
looking people was his contact?  What would a demon's contact look like, anyway?  It
couldn't be another demon, surely, not here in the open.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Raschi did his best, but it was not to be.  Some other time he may be

                                   Cruzia Gardett

P.S.  Low/very low, lunge tactic?  How odd.  I never did care for slow-motion fights.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for AMEN-TEI.  Like, 1949 YANKEES had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by WAYFARERS!  Way to go WAYFARERS!  MVP 
award for VALNAKORINE?  WAYFARERS' proud of her after beating VISITING ORC and 
getting 16 points.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VIRGINAL 
CONCUBINE, and CRUZIA GARDETT has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  M.T. LANE of 
WAYFARERS takes CRUZIA GARDETT's place.  (But seriously, who could ever take the 
place of CRUZIA GARDETT?  Oh, all right.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob 
to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  AMEN-TEI is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Dreadnaught -- That's probably a handicap, you know.  A little healthy fear, even a
tinge of dread, is a survival aid.  Keeps you on your toes and looking over your
shoulder, and sometimes you SHOULD be on your toes and looking over your shoulder,
although it's easy to fall at a time like that, so you also have to keep a level
head. -- Hyram Carter
P.S.  But don't try to combine it with "shoulder to the wheel, nose to the
grindstone, and ear to the ground," as the two sets are incompatible.

Why am I plagued with the Khalhums Dwarf?  I don't like dwarves.  The hair on their
faces freaks me out. -- M.T. Lane

Billy Johnson -- You're supposed to tip your cabby.  Skills would do. -- Yalo Tactsie

Somehow I expected the Fratsfan Noble to be taller. -- Valnakorine

Bobby Brown -- Does this mean I have not lived in vain? -- M.T. Lane

Cruzia Gardett -- And a very pleasant time was had with the dinner, the dancing, the
quiet drive along the waterfront--  Well, perhaps the last part was a bit chilly, but
we did manage to keep warm! -- M. Golodor Chardinee

Woodling -- You met your end with dignity.  This is rare, and it will reflect
honorably on your teammates. -- the Dark Champion of Amen-Tei
P.S.  So they tell me, at any rate.

M.T. Lane -- You're a fool, boy. -- Gorlok Bonecrusher, Khalhums Dwarf

Valnakorine -- What a violent wench you are.  Not at all ladylike. -- Marenj d'Sul,
Fratsfan Noble
P.S.  I find it rather exciting, actually.
