On the Trier near Dal Shang:

     Lord Protector Amplitur scowled impartially at the mist-shrouded new island off 
the coast and his fellow Dalshani and sometime opponent Damoreth Stenn.  "I never 
heard about any 'lost city' around here."
     "It was lost a long time ago," Stenn said, shrugging.  "Why should you?"
     "You knew it was there!"
     Stenn shrugged and lifted his oars out of the water.  "I knew there was 
SOMETHING there, 'cause it's a navigation hazard," he corrected.  He glanced over his 
shoulder at the risen island, then at the shore, gauging their speed.  "I'd expect to 
find wrecked ships on it, once we get there.  IF we get there.  The current's tricky.  
But I never heard about it being a CITY, and I don't think it is.  That island can't 
be more than a mile the long way, and that's too small for a real city."
     Amplitur, who was facing forward, focused his attention through the jewel he 
wore on his forehead.  Its effect in this instance was to enable him to see through 
the mist that veiled the mysterious island.  "Maybe not a city," he said after a 
moment, "but it's built up--in fact, the whole island from the waterline on up seems 
to be built over.  No bare rock.  Well, maybe... there is a lot of mud.  But I'd bet 
on no unbuilt ground.  Structures--towers--"
     "Probably what wrecked ships when it was sunken."
     "Probably.  Walls, domes, bridges between towers, narrow roads."  He paused to 
examine the approaching island very carefully.  "I don't sense anything living.  No 
warmth.  No... I don't think there's any movement...."
     "Don't second-guess," Stenn advised.  "Just report what you see."
     "It might be mist drifting between the... drifting around.  Or birds.  Gulls?  
They'd be looking for anything edible in the mud, wouldn't they?"
     Stenn checked their position and movement again.  He had stopped rowing, and the 
current was drifting them closer to the island, but not on a direct course to it.  
"Gulls are alive," he pointed out.  "You just said there wasn't anything alive.  And 
gulls are noisy, too.  We'd hear 'em."
     Amplitur opened his mouth to answer, then collapsed with a groan as his jewel 
suddenly flared sun-bright.  At the same time, the boat began moving toward the 
island more rapidly.  Stenn cursed and bent to the oars, battling the sudden current.  
There was no time to check on his friend, not if he didn't want them both shipwrecked 
on the island, but he could see that Amplitur was still breathing.  For now, that 
would have to be enough, because the current was strong and the risk of stranding 
great.  As he rowed, he cursed himself silently.  He should have expected the new 
island to disturb the currents along this coast.  Well, in a way, he had, but he 
hadn't expected a current that drove right toward the island.  It defied logic, not 
that logic had a lot to do with sailing, sometimes.  But... no.  This was too pat.  
This said "planning."  Someone or something wanted them to land on that island, and 
it was his automatic response to resist any such manipulation.
     But the current was very strong.

Dal Shang, Provincial Archives:

     "Okay, let's go over this one more time," Marian of Ravenskeep said.  Her voice 
was tight with controlled irritation.  "There are maps in your files that actually 
SHOW this 'new' island.  It's even got a name: Kaseltor.  But you have NOTHING else 
that tells anything about it, that even mentions it.  No deeds, no tax rolls, no--"
     The archival clerk raised his eyebrows slightly and looked down his nose at her.  
Marian wondered how much of his unhelpfulness was because she had lived in for some 
time (long enough to graduate from the arena) in Mordant, how much was a taste for 
petty tyranny, and how much was actual lack of information.
     Her companion Whatchamacallit laid his axe carefully on the counter and leaned 
toward the clerk.  "It's important she gets the information," he growled.  One blunt 
finger tapped the letter of introduction she had brought with her.  "The Lord 
Governor wants her to find out about this island."  He scowled, bushy eyebrows 
meeting over a hooked nose.  "I wouldn't want to think you were dragging your feet."
     Had the situation been less urgent, Marian might have laughed at the clerk's 
expression.  Whatcha was a Dwarf (or in Adantri terms, a very short, very hairy human 
who liked being underground), and this did not endear him to the most orthodox of the 
city's citizens.  And a clerk in the Archives was bound to be orthodox.  But Whatcha 
was also the Duelmaster, and even those citizens of the city (they were numerous) who 
didn't attend the fights heard about them.  It might be dangerous to annoy a 
duelmaster....  Of course, if Whatcha killed the clerk, he would be arrested, 
duelmaster or no, but what good would that do for a dead clerk?
     "We don't have anything about that island," the clerk muttered, "but you might 
find something at the Ko Shang Monastery."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Murgon, I always seem to learn Decise from you, too bad it was only one this time.  I 
think I need to graduate so I can find some better teachers.  If I've won again this 
turn (knock on wood), I'm just one more win away!


                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to DAL SHANG once again!  What's with DILYS TYL KOGAN?  She 
actually beat DAL SHANG's HELVAN QUICKHAND, and walked away with 19 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at DAL SHANG while they watched MASTER OF THE EDGE 
clobber DURVAN.  He lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Try as he might, MURGON wasn't good enough at persuading WHATCHAMACALLIT to 
step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was REFUGEES.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at TOO GOOD 
FOR ME ain't reelin'!  REFUGEES' mad!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
