Istoreth, Skaithvarn:

     From the ship, Istoreth was a city of spires, white marble and dark pines
climbing a cliff together above a crowded harbor.  Silent, beautiful, not quite
familiar.  Close up, with the Iayen ship moving restlessly against the worn stone of
a wharf, it was more familiar, less beautiful, and not at all silent.  The basic
nature of a waterfront is not changed by the language of the people inhabiting it.
     Goff was arguing with somebody who acted official, probably a harbormaster,
Raoul decided.  No doubt there would be docking fees or something of that kind, and
they might have to identify themselves and their purpose, register somewhere as
visiting foreigners.  None of that stuff was his problem.  Goff could handle the
harbormaster, he was doing that already.  And Berdan could make himself useful
dealing with any other officials.  The Fratsfan looked like somebody who could deal
with officials, maybe even enjoyed it.  If he'd been a gladiator, he would probably
have been a total parry....
     The ex-assassin was talking to another man a little farther along the dock.
Raoul saw money change hands, and Berdan accepted a package from the stranger.  The
gladiator frowned, watching the stranger walk away quickly.  Berdan wasn't supposed
to know anybody here...except the other assassin, Peranis.  And that man was not
Peranis.  Was this an indication of the wide contacts Raoul had suspected all along
that Berdan had?  Probably.  But was it a sign of treachery, or at least that Berdan
was playing his own game as well as theirs?  Possibly.  The man was an ex-assassin,
which automatically made him...not exactly untrustworthy, perhaps, but someone to be
watched carefully.  The assassins had been spies, as well as killers.  Concealing
their purposes was second nature.  And he was a Fratsfan, besides, a race noted for
the labyrinthine complexity of their thoughts and schemes.  But he and Jeri and Goff,
and by extension King Mickeal, had to trust somebody.
     Still, Raoul watched very closely as Berdan came back toward Goff's boat.  The
man was holding his package, still unopened, very carefully, on the palm of his
opened hand and well away from his body.
     "I need a bucket of water," Berdan said quietly.  "I need it rather quickly," he
added when the others gaped at him.  "I don't think this will explode until I open
it, but I can't be sure...."
     Jeri jumped and reached for a bucket, Raoul took it from her and dunked it over
the side, then held it out.
     "Set it over there, away from us all," the ex-assassin said.  "There are even a
few explosive devises which are activated by water, though I don't think this is
one."  He wasn't quite whispering.  "They're...tricky to handle, and Peranis had to
leave this in the hands of a stranger who might be careless.  It should be something
simple, perhaps not even magical."  When the bucket was positioned to his
satisfaction, and Goff had drawn the staring harbormaster out of the way, Berdan
lowered the package gently into the water and sprang back.
     "If it's magical, what difference will water make?" Jeri asked.
     "More than you might think," Berdan answered.  "Water is amazing stuff and
washes out many things."  The bucket suddenly erupted into a plume of dark foam.
"Ah!  I wondered what Peranis might have available.  That he would risk using black
ice tells us that he is truly desperate."  As he spoke, the plume reached the height
of a man, collapsed, and dissolved the end of the dock before falling into the
harbor.
     "The other ships!" the harbormaster exclaimed, looking around frantically.
     "They're not in danger," Berdan said.  "The black ice has exhausted itself.  You
see?"  He pointed downward.  "It is dissipating."
     "You said it would be safer to put the package into water," Jeri muttered in a
shaky voice.
     "It is, it was, young lady.  Had black ice been exposed to air before water, the
results would have been disastrous."
     "It's disastrous as it is!" the harbormaster wailed.  "My dock!"  He turned on
Berdan fiercely.  "You brought this here--"
     "I did nothing of the sort," the ex-assassin answered coldly.  "It was handed to
me but moments ago by one of YOUR men."
     Before the harbormaster could respond, a squad of soldiers thundered onto the
dock.  "Everyone here is to see Lord Dankilvan immediately!" the leader commanded.

Possibly Zuwayza:

     It seemed to take Tankesh forever to fall out of the Gate, his motion slowed to
the point where he wasn't even sure he was moving at all.  And then there was a sort
of soundless click, and the floor came up fast and hard, knocking the breath out of
him as he hit and rolled.
     Voices speaking akkhadic, upper-class accents.  Shouting.  No time to sort
things out.  Gasping for breath but too well-trained to pause, he rolled to his feet
with his sword out, ending crouched and ready for anything.  By the grace of all the
gods, he was face to face with the Karnhorn vizier, Khannarth.  The man who had
betrayed his city and his ruler, plotted with the Satrap's First Wife to turn over
the Zuwayza to the minions of Inzolas, tried to have the Satrap's Second Wife and
Tankesh killed.....  Ah, it was GOOD to be here, now, and ready.
     The Vizier was looking past him and commanding someone to "get him!"
     Right, voices, plural.  Other people in the room.  Probably guards.  Tankesh
took a quick slash at the retreating Vizier; not a killing blow, but he felt the
resistance of clothing and flesh.  Continued the motion into a turn.  Right, guards.
Two...three.  Startled by his arrival out of nowhere, not expecting him to come
around so fast.  The first man would never have a chance to adjust his thinking; the
slash aimed at HIM gutted him and nearly cut him in two.  The second was a little
farther back.  He might recover, if he got the bleeding stopped in time.  But with
only one hand left to use, that wasn't likely.  Shocked by the unexpected and extreme
violence, he was out of the fight.  Khannarth was screaming orders behind him, and
the third man was leveling his spear for a charge.  Stupid weapon to carry indoors,
maybe it was tradition, maybe it was just ornamental, didn't matter.
     Tankesh edged to the right, drawing the spearman's attention with him.  When the
man was fully committed, all his momentum focused into the charge, Tankesh ducked to
the left.  Tripped over his first victim but rolled and came up again, whacked the
spear in two in passing, kicked the man in the belly as his charge brought him within 
range, and turned to face Khannarth again.
     The Vizier was holding his robes against a bleeding chest wound with one hand
and tugging on a bell-pull with the other.  Tankesh lunged closer and cut through
bell rope.
     And then froze as a man with a cocked and ready crossbow appeared in the doorway
behind the Vizier.  More than one man, and several with crossbows.  Karnhorns, of
course.  Damn.  They were all dressed alike, no doubt a uniform, but not the same as
worn by the three guards he'd just dealt with.  Khannarth began babbling out
accusations and orders.
     The first of the newcomers silenced him with a curt word.  "You will BOTH
explain yourself to the Exalted Satrap, may His justice be swift and sure," the man
said.  He gestured them out into the hallway with his crossbow.  "Now."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in KYR'TERR a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for SHADOW TALES, whose 1-3-0 this turn 
dropped them by 7 into 17th.  METACONCERT stable has parlayed this turn's 1-0-0 into 
a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 13th place.  Good work, guys! 
KYR'TERR welcomes a new team to our ranks, unofficially of course, for now.  But 
welcome nonetheless to SHADOW GAMES.  Let's see what you can do.  And let's see, 
POKER fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 21 points and contributed to SHADOW GAMES' 
3-2-0.  GRUBS has lost to JACK THE BODILESS, falling 14 points, while helping make 
WOMBAT DREAMS a 1-2-0 turn.  This turn SHADOW HAWK challenged BATTLEMAGE in what was 
KYR'TERR's Title bout.  And not without some honor, BATTLEMAGE now claims the title 
and throne of Duelmaster of KYR'TERR.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Swinging Aardvark?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  THE LOWLIFES has cause to stand tall, 
as they were KYR'TERR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding THE LOWLIFES more than any other team we find HAZAARDS OF 
CLONING.  KYR'TERR, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was HAZAARDS OF CLONING's warrior I OF THE NEEDLE.  More 
fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, MORROLAN 
E'DRIEN from CASTLE BLACK challenged up 24 points to fight EYE OF THE KNEE DOLL from 
the HAZAARDS OF CLONING stable.  MORROLAN E'DRIEN perhaps got his just desserts, 
seeing as he was overcame by EYE OF THE KNEE DOLL and ended up with 10 recognition 
points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that KYR'TERR has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, KYR'TERR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KYR'TERR and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

An Announcement Concerning the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance:
     I have chosen to withdraw my membership from the Brotherhood of the Blade
alliance.  The years I have spent in the alliance have been the best of my DM career.
I leave the alliance with many great friends and will always remain close to my
former brethren.
     The Brotherhood of the Blade will not skip a beat without my membership.  It

remains in very capable hands and its roster is among the strongest in the game.
With the return on some of its founding members to DM, I know the BOB will continue
to grow in strength and prestige in the years to come. -- The Sandman
