Fratsfa:

     Fandil stared out over Fratsfa from his high window, then shook his head and
turned away to finish stowing a few necessary items into a carpet bag.  And told
himself, again, that Lenpro could take care of himself and was probably following up
some hot tip.  That he was not, in fact, his brother's keeper, and Lenpro wouldn't
thank him for this dither and fuss.  And that he himself had a hot tip to
investigate.
     He pulled the carpet bag shut and buckled the strap.  All this dithering was
silly, pointless, insulting to his brother, and most of all, not like himself.  He
shook it off.  It was just a mood, and he didn't need it.  He picked up his bag and
glanced out the window one last time.  Odd how noisy a city could be--
     By all the gods, that wasn't just city noise, it was a mob!  Men with clubs were
standing in front of the Flower Shoppe, shaking their fists and shouting!  He
couldn't make out the words up here under the roof, so turned and plunged down the
stairs to find out what was going on.
     Lady Fern met him at the bottom of the stairs.  "Relax, Fandil," she said before
he could speak.  "This is just a rented mob, and I've dealt with them before.  You
have important work to do, so go and do it."
     "But--"
     "I can handle this."  She raised an eyebrow.  "Do you doubt me?"
     The young Fratsfan mage, Elosjon, came from the front room, face white and eyes
staring.  "They're calling for 'Fandil the Traitor' to be released to them!" he said.
The look he turned on the older mage was worried.
     Fandil cursed mentally but allowed no sign of his annoyance to show in face or
voice.  "That is just what people would call me who want to stop me.  It is only
words, Elosjon, not truth."
     "Did you hear any details?" Fern asked.  "Who hired the mob, for instance?"
     "Hired...?"  The young man blinked and looked over his shoulder.  "They were
hired?  But why?"
     "To make trouble, to stop me finding the magician behind the current
disruptions," Fandil said.  "It isn't an unusual move for a politician, you know."
Could this young man be so naive?  Hmm, if he'd been head down over the spell-books 
since he was old enough to understand them, yes, he probably could be.  Was.  "We'd
better get going."
     "It's Lord Orboj," Elosjon said.  "He's the richest man in Fratsfa.  Nobody
crosses him--if he names me a traitor, too, I'm through here!"
     "Well, if the city and your colleagues are so fickle and easily swayed, you
might do better elsewhere anyway," Fern said.  She snorted.  "Orboj--he doesn't come
here.  I don't cater to his tastes and never will."
     Fandil opened his eyes wide.  Fern catered to many tastes, if Orboj wanted
something different, he must be strange indeed, and notably perverse.
     There had been a lot of coming and going of the Flower Girls while they talked,
but Fandil only noticed it now because one stopped.  A redhead of statuesque
proportions and discretely indiscrete garb.  She leaned close to Elosjon, linking an
arm through his.  "You won't mind going out with ME, in fact, I know you'll like it,"
she half-whispered.  "And no one will notice if old Fandil trails along behind us."
She kissed his ear.  "I can hardly wait."
     Lady Fern laughed.  "Be good, Ravishing Redbud!  This--"
     "I am ALWAYS good," Redbud answered.
     Fern laughed again, and Elosjon had turned as red as the woman's hair and seemed
incapable of speech or even thought; he allowed her to pull him out the back door and
didn't notice Fandil following.
     "Take care," Fern said as Fandil passed her.  "And don't worry about me here, or
about Lenpro either.  Ours is a family that copes, you know that."  She pushed him
out and shut the door behind him.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Khalhums Dwarf didn't want to be duelmaster, he just wanted to see me sweat,
beast that he is.

                                     M.T. Lane

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  AMEN-TEI needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for DONRIC 
HOLM?  WAYFARERS' proud of him after beating AMBITIOUS GUARD and getting 14 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  ROBERT WILSON's match with VALNAKORINE cost him a loss 
of 7 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think M.T. LANE 
should let THOMAS WIGLE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who 
was the wiseguy that said AMEN-TEI's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Dripping 
Blade?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All AMEN-TEI ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't believe how many 
people were snickering when SERGEANT2 killed HYRAM CARTER.  So he had a 11-28-0, 
that's no excuse!  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear 
from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Sergeant2 -- I suppose I could say "thanks for being there for me," but I don't feel
thankful.  An encounter with a standby would have been preferable, I think. -- Hyram
Carter

Sergeant1 -- Nobody tips anymore. -- Yalo Tactsie
P.S.  One skill?  That barely covers the mileage.

Robert Wilson -- I suppose I should be glad for a good student, and maybe I am or at
least will be.  Let me get a couple of aspirins first, though. -- Valnakorine

That Cult Member is just silly. -- Donric Holm
