     Herlas paced, frowning, glancing out at the dark gardens of the royal palace in
Andor, then at his compaion, Lady Protector Sir Crystal Fireblade.  It was true that
he resented the demands of Lord Korneth, any magician worth his grimoire would resent
them.  Any magician above the skill required to pull a rabbit out of a hat would have
been as resentful and would have had as much trouble as he had trying to make that
pathetic golem believable as the king of the Andorian League.  He wondered again if
Korneth was deliberately setting him up to fail.  It would be just like that
untrustworthy schemer!  But he, Herlas of Zensu, had been, well, not to put too fine
a point on it, rightfully called a "renegade mage" for years, more years than he
cared to count.  Which meant that the declaration he was about to make went against a
lifetime of custom.  It wasn't easy.  He sighed.
     "Yes," he said, "I will join you in wholly supporting the 'good of the Andorian
League' by whatever means necessary.  And pray I don't die in the doing, because my
ancestors would disown me and turn me out of the family tomb."
     "Are you always this gloomy?" Crystal asked.
     "Gods, woman!  This isn't gloom, it's a reasonable appreciation of the
commitment, the risks, and the entanglements I'm undertaking."
     "Not all the consequences will be bad," she said.
     "For you, perhaps.  I'm sure life is much simpler for a warrior.  But for a
magician--"
     She snorted.  "You're enjoying this, aren't you?"
     He paused in his pacing and drew himself up to his full height.  Took a deep
breath, held it for a moment, then blew it out.  "I do like a little drama from time
to time," he admitted.  "There's nothing wrong with that, is there?"
     "So long as it doesn't get in the way of doing the job."
     "Ah.  Yes.  The job....  Let's be specific here.  What, exactly, do you see as
my part in this 'job'?"
     She looked away, silent for the space of three breaths.  Then she sighed.  "I'm
almost certain that the king is gone... or dead.  As certain as I can be without
seeing his body.  But if there's any way you could make sure we're right in that--
scrying or something?  Magic mirrors?"
     "Well, maybe.  Not the Isle of the Eye, though, that's completely shielded."
     "You can make sure he isn't hidden in the palace, though, right?  Or anywhere
around, any estate or--"
     "Yes, I could check those," Herlas said after a moment's thought.  "I could do
that now.  But it would be best if you left before I started."
     "Why?"
     Damn the woman, she was too suspicious.  Well, perhaps not without cause, but
still.  "Because it's dangerous--"  He held up his hand to stop her protest.  "I'm
sure you aren't afraid of danger, but why take an unnecessary chance?  Using magic is
like lighting a fire on a dark night, suddenly the magician is visible to any other
mage around.  And vulnerable, because it isn't possible to project any kind of spell
through a shield, so I will be making an unprotected target of myself... and anyone
near me.  Better to avoid that, don't you think?"
     "That assumes there's another magician around who cares what you do," she
pointed out.  "I haven't heard of one, or seen any sign of one."
     "Nor have I, but there must be some other magician.  Some of the things that
have happened--"  He shrugged.  "I have no proof, I suppose, but I can feel the
presence of another magician, I can taste his interest in this business."
     She frowned, still suspicious, but finally nodded.  "Okay.  I'll leave you to
it, then, and we'll meet to compare notes--there are some lines I can pursue--
tomorrow evening?"
     "Fine.  Ah... yes, that would be fine."  They were going to need a plausible
reason to be meeting often, because as suspicious as the lady knight was, Korneth was
more suspicious.  Korneth didn't trust anyone.  There was one obvious reason for a
man and a woman to get together in the evenings, but Herlas had a feeling that Lady
Crystal Fireblade wasn't going to go for that one.  Well, not tonight's problem.
     He shut the door behind her and turned to his tools.
                         *****   ***   *****   ***   *****
     Crystal Fireblade walked slowly across the grounds of the White Palace.  The
night was cold with an edge of frost, but her cloak was warm enough, and she had a
lot to think about.  She wished for her manager or some of her teammates.  That it
should come to trusting that renegade magician Herlas with the safety of the Andorian
League!  He might as well have "untrustworthy" tatooed across his forehead.  True, he
*said* he had changed sides and would work for the good of Andoria, but can a man who
will change sides once be trusted?  But there was no one else at hand.  Perhaps she
should go back to Aruak City, there must be somebody left she'd know--
     The wind whirled fallen leaves in front of her, startling her out of her
concentration.  Just as well, her thoughts weren't going anywhere but around in
circles.  Odd that the wind should come up so suddenly, though.  She glanced around,
then frowned.  She had spent a lot of time in the palace when the true king had been
in residence, but this was a part of the gardens she didn't recognize.  Of course it
was night, with very little moonlight, but still--
     Half a dozen men, just darker shapes in the darkness, burst out of cover.
Crystal flipped her cloak back to clear her sword for action even as she looked for
escape routes.  She was good, very good, but the odds here were not in her favor, and
she'd grown past the stage where retreat was equated with cowardice.  The wind picked
up again, moaning in the trees and covering any sounds her attackers might be making.
     Blew more clouds across the moon and stars.  Her mouth set in a grim line as the
garden vanished into total darkness.  At least she didn't have any friends nearby to
worry about.  Anyone other than herself moving here was an enemy.  She drew her
sword, dropping into a fighting crouch.  Breathed the night air, waiting.  Wet earth
and the sour tang of fallen leaves and something else, warm and animal, rank and
fetid.  Like the lion cage in a menagerie.
     Aruaki?  But they didn't smell like big cats when in human form, and these had
been man-shaped when they launched their attack.
     No time to think about that now, or think at all.  She couldn't hear them move,
but felt the displaced air as one or more came toward her.  She pivoted, sword moving
without thought.  Felt the jolt as it bit into flesh, sliced through, jammed against
bone.  Backed up, pulling and twisting to free the blade.  Slammed an elbow into a
half-guessed presence to the side.  The wind whistled, whirling up leaves and dust to
sting her eyes, not that her eyes were doing her any good right now, but--  The sword
came free and she turned, slashing across the night.  More strikes, she could smell
fresh blood, but how many she'd hurt and how badly... she couldn't tell.  The wind
seized her cloak, flapping it forward to impede her arms.  She remembered someone
saying to her once that bad luck killed as many warriors as enemies did, while she
tore at the clasp to get rid of the cloak.  Couldn't feel what she was doing with her
fingers numbed by cold.  Warmth coming up behind her, she turned, slashing the cloak
impatiently, stumbled.  A weight across her shoulders.  Pain somewhere behind the
wall of her fighting concentration.  Blood running hot down her arm.  Hot bodies
crowding too closely for her to use her sword skills.  Someone behind her, fingers
closing around her throat.  She slammed her head backward into something hard.  A
yowl of beastial outrage.  The grip on her neck tightening.  No air.  Blackness.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Oh, for the cat's sake!  You call this an arena?  ONE team issues challenges and
avoids, and probably even changes strategies from time to time.  ONE team writes
personals.  And aside from those two, everyone else is asleep at the switch.  They
might as well be running standbys!

So, such facts as we have:
     Vision, former King's Sentinel, sat out, thus losing the title.
     Kellumbo's Kids avoided Death Studs VII.
     Blackrazor got the most challenges, which has to be some kind of joke.
     Sixteen fights, six challenges.

     GOLDERIE (26-4657) (29-31-1,91) of GOLDEN CANYON fought SOLARIS (46-3759) (35-

minute bloody bout.
     SANDS (11-4123) (69-142-3,178) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought TORNADO CXCVI (60-5111)

sided battle.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Ardane -- It most definitely will NOT be sheep's eyes, frozen or otherwise.  Euwh.
In fact, I don't think I'll deal with any part of a sheep this time out, sheep are
such untidy, stupid creatures.  How about... roasted pigeon?  I grant you that they
are also untidy and stupid, but they seem to do rather well stuffed with grapes and
wild rice. -- Golderie

     Stuffed pigeons would do.

Halo -- I don't care for meringue, either, but chocolate pie... that has
possibilities.  I wonder about... thin slices of orange, which have a halo-ish look,
to garnish it.  Hmm.  Let me think about this.  It might work. -- Loris Key

Baby -- I will not force you to eat broccoli.  There are limits to what anyone should
enforce on another.  Broccoli falls outside those limits. -- Sarina
P.S.  But not as far outside as, say kale, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts.

Fry Guy -- Hey!  I just stepped up to point out that your grease was smoking.  Why
the hostility?  I wasn't the one who set the fire too hot. -- Go-Fer

Darnesha -- Sure, I'll do you a feast.  Stuffed ham, glazed sweet potatoes, honey nut
bread, fruit compote, beans in pot liquor, triple chocolate cake with ice cream.
Great stuff, and it'll make you sluggish and slow-moving, too.  Just the thing. --
Clemmie
