In the mountains west of Fratsfa:

     After a while, maybe half an hour, Fandil stood.  Elosjon shivered again.  This
was it.  Ultimate battle, powerful enemy, no quarter.  They were probably going to
die.  HE was probably going to die.  As he stood and tried automatically to brush the
dirt off his robe, he found himself thinking that it was a shame he hadn't ever
visited the Flower Shoppe in Fratsfa for its primary purpose.  Some magicians claimed
that doing so would impair the vital forces, but others claimed it was energizing.
He wished now that he had take the time to formulate his own opinion and test it.
Well, too late for that, but if he DID by some chance survive, he would--  He
remembered Ravishing Redbud who had started out with them, and blushed.  But if he
survived, he WOULD.  With her.
     Fandil glanced at him and said, "Remember, you are present as a back-up.  Not to
throw yourself into the forefront of the battle and get killed for nothing, but to
hold ready for that instant when just a little extra power on my side will tip the
     Elosjon opened his mouth to protest what he saw as coddling, but the older mage
stopped him with a glance.
     "No, I'm not slighting your ability, my young colleague.  It isn't ability that
you lack, but simple experience.  Some things only come with long practice, and the
timing that is critical in a magical battle, or any other kind of battle, is one of
them.  I'm not giving you the 'easy' job, either.  When your assistance is needed, it
will be needed desperately, and you will have to be ready to give without hesitation
or limit."  The older man's beard twitched in what might have been a smile.  "And if
any of the watchdogs show up while I'm busy, I trust you will deal with them."


     "What I want to know," Sunflower said, "is what this Korneth guy thinks he's
going to get out of it all."
     "Power," Herlas said.  "A crown."
     "Yes, but how?  Even if the old king is gone for good, how does all this..." she
stirred her hand around as though mixing a pot of trouble, "how does it make HIM into
the new king?"
     "That's how a man becomes a king," Lady Fern said.  "By seizing a chance when it
comes along--and often enough by making the chance in the first place.  He will argue
that there is no one else at hand who can do what needs to be done, and point to the
'Karnhorn Menace' or some other made-up danger and say that no time can be lost, the
Andorian League--"
     "He'll make it a kingdom, not a league," Herlas put in.
     She nodded.  "That seems a logical step for him.  That Andoria needs a strong
hand on the reins now of all times.  None of the other 'lesser' rulers will do: the
Baron of Ardivent is too little known to the population as a whole, and he's an elf,
the leaders of the Clanholds are Aruaki, the Thane of Convincia is too old, the
Raltumans are out of the question since Aradi's defection--"
     "What about Emperor Alonj?" Orchid asked.
     "Easily discredited.  He used to seem half-mad, though he wasn't, and many
people will believe that he really is."  Fern snorted.  "His wife may have something
to say about that, true, but Alonj doesn't want to rule Andoria, and she may not push
him into something he doesn't want."
     "He's right about one thing," Lenpro said.  "Somebody has to take control."
     "Why?" Herlas asked.  "Why not go back to being independent units: Ardivent and
Fratsfa, the Clanholds, Convincia, and Raltumas.  It isn't like the League is some
ancient tradition, or the separate parts will turn on each other without the
framework of the League to make them work together."
     Lenpro and Fern spoke together:  "No."  Fern gestured for Lenpro to carry on
with the explanation.  "Only in a perfect world will people work together without
rules and leaders, and this is not a perfect world.  People--petty nobles, great
nobles, military leaders, wealthy merchants, ambitious priests--they'll see a power
vacuum and try to step in to fill it.  There will be fighting, and sooner or later a
union again.  We should bypass that if we can:  Better a bad ruler than no ruler."
     "Not always," Lady Fern said.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     M. Chardinee wasn't much of a challenge.  Disappointing.


                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in AMEN-TEI this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, BONNIE BARROW fought LADY 
CHUCK and gained 2 points and contributed to BAD GIRLS' 1-0-0.  YALO TACTSIE has lost 
to M. CHARDINEE, falling 10 points, while helping make WAYFARERS a 1-2-0 turn.  
Defending hers title for another turn, VALNAKORINE kept AMEN-TEI's warrior, NOBLE 
ASSASSIN, from claiming the throne.  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.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  This is not good to see.  Why pray tell has DA2 been sent to the Dark Arena 
by MEDAL OF HONOR J3?  And why with a 2-0-1 record??  We'd like to remind certain 
teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's 
considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
