     "Okay," Lenpro said, "we have to go to Andor.  We figured we'd need to do that
eventually.  Why sooner?"
     "Because someone doesn't want us to," Fandil said.  "That, I think, is what the
magical barrier--it's still there, and it must be using an enormous amount of energy
to maintain--that's what it's all about.  Cutting off Andor from Fratsfa."
     "From you?"
     The old mage shrugged.  "I don't know.  Maybe.  Or cutting off a magician there
IN Andor who is seeking help from Fratsfa.  Or both."
     "Or even for some reason you haven't thought of," Lady Fern said, "and the
effects you mentioned are secondary."
     Both men scowled at her.  One may love a sister and still be annoyed at her
unconventional observations and peculiar viewpoint.
     "Yes, perhaps," Fandil said after a moment.  "But we can't base our actions on
'something we haven't imagined'.  We have to work with what we CAN think of.  Which
is that the barrier is a sort of magical 'divide and conquer' effort."
     "Which makes it a reason for you to go," Lenpro said, "but I don't--"
     The door banged open, letting in the smell of flowers from the back room of the
shop and one of Lady Fern's gladiators.  Sizzling Sunflower posed in the doorway,
radiating excitement and energy.  "Someone's kidnapped a couple of girls!  People are
saying it was monsters!"
     "Just 'monsters', nothing specific?" Lenpro asked.
     "Well, the description sounds like a werecat half-changed," the gladiatress
answered.  "I didn't know they could hold themselves at that stage, unless it's the
effect of the shape-changer plague?"
     "There's already widespread distrust of the Aruaki here," Lenpro said, rising.
"People could even just imagine that the kidnappers are werecats, and it would be
enough to bring about attacks on quite innocent people.  I'd better go check on
this."  He shrugged apologetically at his brother Fandil and took Sunflower's arm.
"You can lay most of your plans without my presence, can't you?"
     "Yes, of course," Fandil said.
     As the door slammed shut behind Lenpro and the Flower Girl, Lady Fern said,
"There might be a physical barrier between Fratsfa and Andor, too, as well as a
magical one."
     "What would be the point of that?"
     "It would keep Emperor Alonj from going to Andor and taking control of the
     Fandil sat down with a thump.  "You're right.  I hadn't thought of that.  But is
he ready to go?"
     Fern shrugged.  "That isn't the point.  If the king is truly dead--"  She held
up a hand.  "I know, you're almost certain.  It's just, well, it feels odd to say it.
Like that makes it more real.  Anyway, if there is going to be some new ruler, the
sooner he's in place, the better.  Because whoever gets there first will have an edge
in any, ah, dispute.  If Alonj isn't first--"
     "But there isn't anyone else," Fandil said.  "The people won't accept an elf
from Ardivent or an Aruaki at present, and the High Thane of Convincia is too old.
Raltumas...not a chance, especially not now that Aradi has seceded; their political
credit is no good.  So who else could there be?"
     "Someone you haven't thought of yet," she said, ignoring his theatrical groan.
"Someone who's trying to usurp control, maybe for himself or maybe as an agent for
some enemy--the Karnhorns, maybe.  How should I know?  But there's someone stirring
this pot, Fandil.  That's the person you have to identify and stop."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This is humiliating.  I'd rather not have the title than have it because, after
losing to the Khalhums Dwarf, I was still the highest-ranked active gladiator here.

                                     M.T. Lane

P.S.  I offered to let the Dwarf write a column, but he declined.

P.P.S.  Rudely.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
AMEN-TEI.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  MEDAL OF HONOR J3 now 
holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  MEDAL OF HONOR J3 seems to 
have it's eye on the top team spot, and if they continue having 4-1-1 weeks they may 
get it!  Hey everybody, watch out for SERGEANT1, who flew up 15 points in the 
rankings after mashing POLITE BEGGAR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  DREADNAUGHT was overcame by 
BILLY JOHNSON and drops 12 points.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to NOBLE 
ASSASSIN, BUT M.T. LANE is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition 
points!  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that WAYFARERS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of WAYFARERS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo 
me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause 1949 YANKEES beats feet every time 
WAYFARERS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were 
votes, DREADNAUGHT would be president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want 
to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     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?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye. 
(Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
