Fratsfa:

     The slum they were in decayed into a worse slum, and that faded into an area
that was half ruins and half buildings that just managed to stay upright.  There were
people in the ramshackle structures even so.  Sizzling Sunflower saw one woman
dressed in rags--literally in rags, and it was impossible to guess her age--staring
at them as though they were the most alien and fantastic beings imaginable.  Perhaps
they were, here.
     Lenpro touched her arm.  "Don't stare at them," he said quietly.
     "How can they live like this?" Sunflower demanded.
     "A wise man once said to me that if you don't know where people are coming from
and where they're going, you can't judge the route they've chosen."
     "That sounds, I don't know, profound or something, but what does it mean?"
     "It means you should let be, until someone actually asks for help, or at least
until you know more."  They turned a corner--there were no long straight avenues
here--and approached the crumbling wall that enclosed the Old Ruins.
     Lenpro frowned.  The wall was shimmering, faintly but unmistakably.  Or maybe it
weren't, maybe it was just heat waves or sun reflecting off snow.  Both at once?  It
was an odd thing, anyway, and probably magical, and as such it should be approached
with caution.  And preferably with a mage in hand, but Fandil wasn't here.  Lenpro
didn't think they had time to waste going back to get him.  He glanced at Sizzling
Sunflower.
     She was staring at the wall, wide-eyed.  "Weird!" she said, and smiled.  "This
should be something new, let's try it!"
     Lenpro shook his head.  It was a long time since he'd been that young.  But
maybe hers was the right attitude anyway.  "Yes, let's."  He stepped up to the
gateway.
     The sensation was a familiar one: they had stepped through some kind of
dimensional gateway.  And if he'd had any question about that, what he saw beyond it
would have made all certain.  They were not on Ghea any more.
     The buildings were as ruined as he had expected in this oldest part of Fratsfa,
if it still was based on that city.  But heaps of rubble reared into narrow mounds of
unnatural height, and broken walls loomed and tottered, seeming to hang in mid-air
when they should be collapsing.  The flagstoned streets lay at unexpected angles, and
sometimes there was nothing at all between the stones.  They say people, more than
Lenpro had expected, but not one who appeared normal.  He began to wonder how he
appeared to them and glanced over at Sizzling Sunflower.
     She looked half plant, or maybe like a sunflower that was half human.  She
touched his arm with one leafy green hand.  "This is so neat!  It's a whole other
world here!"  When she smiled, her teeth were striped like sunflower seeds.
     "It is that," Lenpro agreed.  He glanced back to check on their line of retreat.
They didn't have a line of retreat, there was no sign of the gateway through which
they'd come.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  MEDAL OF HONOR J3 had cause to celebrate, after SERGEANT2 got 18 points 
by beating YALO TACTSIE.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 4 points to THOMAS WIGLE.  (Discrete enough, 
VALNAKORINE?) M.T. LANE found out that AMEN-TEI isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be 
the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in AMEN-TEI is using psychics 
to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are AMEN-TEI's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Everyone is famous 
for fifteen minutes, and VALNAKORINE is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  
Isn't WAYFARERS proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in AMEN-TEI is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for AMEN-TEI?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Billy Johnson -- I like to see you working for your title, but listen, you better
watch out!  Do well in the tourney, right?  We'll cheer you on. -- M.T. Lane

Tommy Henrich -- I always heard you should keep your hens poor, but what do I know?
Maybe anxious hens lay addled eggs or something. -- Hyram Carter

Wigle?  Cheese, sorry, I thought it was Wolfe! -- Hyram Carter
P.S.  Must be the light printing.  Or maybe I need new glasses.

Thomas Wigle -- You might as well BE a wolf. -- Valnakorine

Sergeant2 -- Try harder.  Or at least tip harder.  More skills for me, you know?  I
wouldn't mind. -- Yalo Tactsie

Robert Wilson -- Odd name for a Rirorni. -- Donric Holm
P.S.  But now that I think of it, aren't the Rirorni know for their, um,
acquisativeness?
