South of Andor:

     Outcast Orchid looked at her companion.  He had given his name as though it
should mean something to her, but she'd never heard of him.  "Herlas of Zensu?"
     "Yes, to my shame, I am."
     She shook her head.  "That doesn't mean a thing to me, but I can tell you that
as far as I'm concerned, saving my life makes up for a lot."  She looked ahead.  The
farm track they were following wandered into a field and stopped.  "Where do we go
from here?  How long before we can get back on the main roads?  I don't like being
lost."
     "We aren't lost," Herlas said.  "I know where we are, and how to get to Fratsfa
from here--if the Chaos monsters haven't gotten there ahead of us."  He guided her to
the left, into an overgrown woodlot.  "If they have... no reason to go there at all.
Or not to, of course."
     "Well, at least you aren't suggesting that we flee Andoria to escape the
monsters--"
     "What would be the point?  Once they've conquered Andoria, which is their goal,
I think, they will go on to the rest of Alastari, and from there the rest of Ghea."
     "Lady Greywand might have something to say about that."
     "Or she might not.  She's insane, after all."
     The woodlot was small, and on the other side of it was another overgrown track.
     "How can you say that?" Orchid demanded, pulling a twig from her hair.
     "Based on the available evidence," Herlas answered quietly, "but let's not go
into that now."  He gestured slightly, indicating something ahead of them.  "We're
about to have trouble."
     Orchid looked.  One of the monsters was waiting in the middle of the field.  She
drew her sword, unwilling to give up without a fight.  A limb of the thing
transformed into a sort of blade in response.  She foresaw difficulty with an
opponent who could change forms at will.
     Beside her, heat and flickering lights and a smell of ozone as her companion
cast a spell.  Herlas said, "I think I can hold it to one shape, but be quick."
     She nodded and danced forward, her sword beginning to trace the dangerous
patterns of her style.  Sunlight flared along the edge of the blade, clean as
morning, and the monster shied back.  She whirled past it, moving constantly without
pause, slicing and dicing methodically.  Ichor flowed thickly.
     It made a sound.  Why should a Chaos monster that looked a little bit like a
person on a horse make a sound like wind chimes and sea gulls?  Well, why not, it was
chaos, right?  Anything goes, that's what chaos was all about.  Except that she got
the feeling it was upset.  Good!  It should BE upset.  Coming here and trying to take
over HER world--the very idea!  She spun back twoard it, she had a second sword now
in her other hand, didn't know where she'd gotten it, but that didn't matter.  She
hit it like a veritable wall of blades, and every gobbet of flesh she hacked off
burst into flames before it could hit the ground and was destroyed.
     Destroyed utterly.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in AMEN-TEI a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as BAD GIRLS is pushed out of top team by MEDAL OF HONOR J3, who came 
from 2nd with a 2-0-0 this turn.  The WAYFARERS guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, LADY CHUCK fought BONNIE BARROW and gained 17 points and 
contributed to WAYFARERS' 3-1-0.  BONNIE BARROW has lost to LADY CHUCK, falling 16 
points, while helping make BAD GIRLS a 0-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and SERGEANT 3 remains AMEN-TEI's top warrior for another 
turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The 
Swinging Aardvark uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  WAYFARERS has cause to stand tall, as they 
were AMEN-TEI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And avoiding WAYFARERS more than any other team we find BAD GIRLS.  AMEN-TEI, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  BAD GIRLS has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you kill your 
fighter, HEIDI FLEISCH, who had a record of 3-0-1?' A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, AMEN-TEI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in AMEN-TEI and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in AMEN-TEI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
