Andor:

     Herlas enjoyed scrying.  True, it wasn't totally reliable as a way to gather
information, but there were compensations.  To be able to direct his vision anywhere
within a range of fifty or a hundred miles, to skim it above the landscape like a
bird, ah!  It was almost as good as flying.  And one thing this government job had
given him was enough money to buy the very best scrying crystals.
     He paused with his hand on the sphere, reminded by the word "crystal" and a sort
of twinge of concern.  Should he keep an eye on Crystal Fireblade?  She was by way of
being his partner in this, and the night was full of dangers, and he had been around
Korneth long enough to have a better idea how his mind worked....  No, the lady would
consider his watching her, however well-intentioned, to be prying.  Best to leave
that for some later discussion, or a certainty of immediate danger.
     He forced thought of the woman out of his mind and placed the crystal ball on
its working stand, polishing it carefully to remove any fingerprints or specks of
dust.  Amazing how much distortion you could get from little things like that.  He
admired the perfect crystal for a moment, then smiled, flexed his fingers, and
muttered the spell to activate it.
     Andor at night, seen from above.  Rings of light around the palace, Korneth
didn't stint on the oil for the watchlights.  A few lamps along the main streets and
in the courtyards of the best inns.  Mostly a carpet of textured darkness threaded
with the silver of moon-reflecting water.  By day or night, the view from above was
always breathtaking.  But personal indulgence was not his concern at the present.
     He muttered an addendum to the spell, altering what he saw and how he saw it.
Concentrations of magic, that's what he was looking for now.  The view shifted to
shades of gray.  A gossamer ring of lavender, barely visible, marked the outer watch-
spell of the palace.  No spark to indicate that the golem-king was active; it must
have been shut down for the night.  That made sense; as long as it was active,
someone had to be providing power to it.  Some golems were self-powered, eating just
as real people did to provide them with energy, but Herlas knew that this one was not
that sophisticated.  Barely good enough to do the job, and no frills at all.  He felt
contempt; he was no specialist in golem construction, but even he could have done a
better one.  Oh, well.
     No magicians other than himself here in Andor.  That always surprised him.
There had used to be other mages here.  But even a magician who wasn't using his
powers would show up at this range, and there was nothing.  Had Korneth ordered them
killed, or driven off in some way?  Wouldn't that have been too obvious?  No, maybe
not, after all, he himself hadn't noticed their absence until he went looking for
them.  He shrugged, uneasy, and widened his search.  There were bound to be other
magicians somewhere, Fratsfa and, if he could see that far, Zensu, and probably
scattered around the countryside.  Of course, any of them who was paying attention
would feel his scry-spell pass, but that shouldn't cause alarm, magicians did this
kind of thing all the time, to keep an eye on the competition.
     He set his viewpoint moving in widening circles like a soaring bird.  His mouth
twitched in amused recollection.  The first time he'd tried this, he had kept the
circles tight and moved too fast; it had made him so dizzy that he'd fallen on his
face.  Well, he'd been young.  He knew better now.
     The landscape opened before him like a shadowy map.  Andor, the river.  Straight
south to start with, to the northern end of the Daggerspine Mountains.  Few people
lived in that rock land, but there were some, and he recalled... had there not been a
Lord Montar, an independent ruler back before the formation of the Andorian League;
rumor said his only son had taken up the study of magic.  And the castle would still
be there.  Somewhere around... there?  A blank spot?  How odd.  He should probe it
more deeply--  No, he should not.  At least, not now.  Thirty or even twenty years
ago, he would have dropped his current survey to pursue that puzzle, but he had
learned a few things since then.  Finish one job before starting another.  He could
come back to that blank spot later.  Maybe it was some kind of old static defense
around Montar's castle, in which case it wouldn't go away.  And if it did disappear,
that would tell him something in itself.
     Sweep through the western arc of his range--these things were generally easier
if done clockwise, for some reason.  Tarrgir, with a faint smudge of magic hanging
over it like smoke.  North, the mouth of the river, Kati-Tei, the bay.  East.  Forest
there, dark but webbed with faint light.  The forest always showed that blue-lavender
web, he had never figured out why.  But there were bright sparks within it.
Magicians or magical creatures of some kind.  He would have to focus on one and dive
his viewpoint as close as possible to work out which, and it didn't matter.  Whatever
he was looking for, it wouldn't be in the Shewish Forest.
     Through the southeast quadrant, across Fratsfa and back toward the mountains.
Ah!  Fratsfa looked like a bed of hot coals under the spell.  This must be where the
magicians of Andor had gone.  He narrowed his focus, trying for more detail.  Many
different power signatures, most of them low in energy or skill but, as he had
learned the hard way, not to be ignored.  When magic was involved, a strong
motivation could make up for a lot.  He adjusted his spell to scan them more closely.
     Hmm.  A typical unsorted population of magicians, this.  Mostly self-absorbed
and not particularly good or evil.  A few, even on this quick examination, made him
uneasy, and when he was younger, he would have dropped everything to challenge--  But
not now.  Now he had work to do.
     A stronger signature, the strongest he could detect in Fratsfa, and one he
recognized:  Fandil of Ardivent.  He'd never actually met the man, in fact, he had
avoided doing so because of their different orientations, but he would not be
mistaken in identifying him.  Odd to find Fandil up here, he usually stayed closer to
Ardivent.  But given the circumstances and Herlas's present intentions, perhaps the
old mage would make a valuable ally.  Perhaps he should contact--
     It was like running at top speed and going head-first into a wall.  The scrying
crystal shattered.  Where had the barricade come from?  Herlas groped for his mental
balance and failed to find it, collapsing among the shards of crystal,

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     As you see, we're here again.  Every time, I'm surprised, although I suppose not
as surprised as Olaf is when Home Guard has another fight day.  Today, snow on the
ground, sun in the sky, icicles hanging off the edges of the seats, we have twenty
fights, only three of them involving standbys.  There were seven challenges, all of
them posted by Kellumbo's Kids.  Nobody was Most Challenged, which makes sense.  That
Totally Sucks! was Most Avoided, by... Kellumbo's Kids.  What a surprise, eh?

So we have:
     GOLDERIE (26-4657) (30-32-1,82) of GOLDEN CANYON fought MGRWONTHE1STTOGS! (60-
8618) (17-7-1,59) of SUPERIOR FORCES 1601.  GOLDERIE was handily defeated by
MGRWONTHE1STTOGS! in a 2 minute uneven duel.  She shouldn't have stopped and tried to
pronounce it.
     LORIS KEY (26-4706) (23-34-1,68) of GOLDEN CANYON fought YOGONITH (105-5) (0-0-
0,90) of The Standbys.  LORIS KEY slaughtered YOGONITH in a 1 minute one-sided match.
And I bet she'll still refuse to make calamari.  Some people just aren't adventurous.
     BABY (43-2863) (26-45-2,43) of DARK SIDE fought GO-FER (26-4444) (25-41-2,78) of
GOLDEN CANYON.  BABY was devastated by GO-FER in a 1 minute one-sided bout.  Never
choose this guy for a babysitter.
     CLEMMIE (26-4630) (28-45-1,104) of GOLDEN CANYON fought TARIN SHARPEYES (105-3)
(0-0-0,100) of More Standbys.  CLEMMIE overpowered TARIN SHARPEYES in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute mismatched fight.  She blunted his eyes, in fact.
     SARINA (26-4220) (30-37-1,147) of GOLDEN CANYON fought VAN HELSING (11-6338)
(52-64-1,126) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II.  SARINA was overpowered by VAN HELSING in an
exciting 1 minute one-sided match.  Pickled herring, I bet.
     100% (14-4429) (21-14-2,124) of NO-HALF STEPPING fought FRY GUY (40-3655) (28-
14-0,121) of TACO GODS.  100% devastated FRY GUY in a popular 1 minute mismatched
brawl.  I've been meaning to ask, Fry Guy, do you use the Good Fats?  Whatever they
are, sounds kind of like no-calorie sugar, doesn't it?

     SANDS (11-4123) (70-143-3,178) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought TORNADO CXCVI (60-5111)
(20-33-0,147) of DEATH STUDS VII.  SANDS vanquished TORNADO CXCVI in a 1 minute one-
sided fray.  So, no sandstorm today, I see.
     SMITH (14-1282) (99-152-4,193) of MIKES fought CONNOR MACLEOD (11-5532) (69-84-
0,169) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II.  SMITH handily defeated CONNOR MACLEOD in a popular 1
minute bloody uneven fight.  Leaving Connor a scarlet knight indeed.
     GOKU (46-3655) (96-79-2,210) of DRAGONBALL Z fought HUMMEL (14-1404) (96-153-
7,193) of MIKES.  GOKU demolished HUMMEL in a popular 1 minute bloody mismatched
match.  I figure Hummel wasn't paying attention.  There's a lot of that going around.
     VAJRA VALMEJAR (11-4928) (73-90-0,206) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought DEATH FOG (45-
4017) (68-31-0,192) of SUPERIOR FORCES.  VAJRA VALMEJAR subdued DEATH FOG in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute bloody competition.  I've never figured out how to subdue a fog,
and I think Vajra was just lucky.
     NAFISAH (22-6612) (38-18-1,199) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS fought LUKARIAN LAMORAK (11-
4841) (70-98-1,190) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  NAFISAH was overpowered by LUKARIAN LAMORAK
in a popular 1 minute one-sided melee.  Hmm, do you think experience had anything to
do with this?
     HERO, HERO (68-446) (26-38-0,221) of DIAMONDS & RUST fought MASKED GUILDMASTER
(105-6) (0-0-0,201) of Yet More Standbys.  HERO, HERO was vanquished by MASKED
GUILDMASTER in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  Who was that masked man?

The challenges:
     SALEM (82-42046) (16-8-0,91) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS06-23 challenged SOLARIS (46-
3759) (35-96-0,43) of RUBY DRAGONS.  Down 48.  SALEM vanquished SOLARIS in a 1 minute
uneven Challenge duel.  It's a sad thing to think that with Solaris's record, it will
be YEARS before he's sucked off to Primus.
     DARNESHA (82-42015) (21-4-1,177) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS06-17 challenged WARDUKE (11-
5930) (59-76-3,157) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II.  Down 20.  DARNESHA devastated WARDUKE in
a 1 minute one-sided Challenge competition.  A challenge a day keeps losses at bay?
So I've been told, anyway.
     JACKSON (22-6649) (31-5-0,171) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged WHERE'S MY TOURNEY?
(82-2893) (36-6-0,205) of THAT TOTALLY SUCKS!  Up 34.  JACKSON devastated WHERE'S MY
TOURNEY? in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  Tourneys, bah, who needs 'em.

     BLIND GIRL (22-6041) (59-25-0,204) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged BLACKRAZOR (11-
4091) (68-147-2,205) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  Up 1.  BLIND GIRL defeated BLACKRAZOR in a
crowd pleasing 3 minute Challenge match.  Excellent work, Blind Girl.
     GRANDPA RAT (22-6549) (52-31-3,187) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged KHORNE
SHADOWSPAWN (46-3809) (59-67-1,182) of RUBY DRAGONS.  Down 5.  GRANDPA RAT vanquished
KHORNE SHADOWSPAWN in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  Do rats eat corn?
     MAXIMUS (22-5966) (67-43-3,211) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged WOLVERINE (66-
3871) (72-123-6,202) of X-FORCE.  Down 9.  MAXIMUS demolished WOLVERINE in a popular
1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  Maximally.  That's a word, isn't it?
     TEEVELLA (82-24954) (26-5-1,213) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged NIXIE SEASPRITE
(11-4992) (69-84-1,190) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  Down 23.  TEEVELLA devastated NIXIE
SEASPRITE in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  A fit of foreseeing has come
upon me, and I foresee Nixie's record headed for the deepest trenches.

For the title:
     SNAKE CHARMER (22-6169) (55-23-0,256) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS fought TALISMAN
SHIELDGUARD (11-4304) (84-117-0,221) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  SNAKE CHARMER unbelievably
bested TALISMAN SHIELDGUARD in a 4 minute Title fight.  I not only believe this, I
expected it.  Congratulations.

Salem -- Sarina warned me you were changing the seasonings on that pie.  It was a bit
of a surprise, but it certainly worked.  Maybe with whipped cream on the top, too? --
Golderie

Van Helsing -- I will not cook fish. -- Sarina

Fry Guy -- I wish... ah!  Fresh fry breads hot out of the pan.  Some other time, I
guess. -- Clemmie

Solaris -- Bwahaha. -- Go-Fer

Baby -- I'm glad you liked the pie, but no way am I making another one with nuts and
bolts in it. -- Loris Key

Ardane -- Yes, exactly. -- the Golden Canyon chefs
