Malarbor Says
Malarbor says: The so-called War of Nicki's Minaj has shuddered to a halt in the face of the Mingshi Emperor's "ingenious" defensive strategy of having his defenders commit suicide under the supervision of omnipresent meditative monks, before deleting the evidence in a fit of pique. The Emperor and the returning Diwang then mutually suicided each other bringing us up to the present stalemate. The Alexandrian's have liberated Penguin Island while the Realm of Passio-Corum has placed a sizeable slice of Jingdao's oversea's territory under its own "protection". To accommodate all of these occurrences within a single narrative, where Jingdao is somehow utterly triumphant, has resulted in a display of sophistry that is quite dazzling in its dissonant brilliance. We welcome the advent of the curiously familiar sounding Kuominliantang and the fantastical efforts of an empire to appropriate for itself the rhetorical mantle of anti-imperialism. The only people who are fooled are the ones who want to be fooled (hello, Jack).

Elsewhere the Kaiseress has departed for Athlon on "family business", leaving the somewhat disengaged Steward Dravot in charge once again. As for the nature of that family business, while it is not Malarbor's place to pass judgement (it ought to be though) it does appear that once again, a Kalirion has allowed sentiment to overcome judgement and that a massacre will inevitably ensue. Let's be honest, the only plot twist will be if the daft mare survives.

Meanwhile, there are strange burbling noises emanating from Amokolia. Malarbor assumes that the Nordic yokels are drunk again.

    Expatriates and Prel-Stik

    "Have some more fish, Elsio."

    "Er, no thanks, Mom, I don't want to be too weighed down when we get to playing prel-stik later," Elsio demurred. "I've missed playing with all you guys... is the court up the road still open?"

    "Oh, you must miss prel-stik," said her brother. "Don't they play weird foreign sports up there - ball in a basket, that sort of thing?"

    "It's not 'ball in a basket'. But yeah. I can still play prel-stik, though. There's a decent Mevwani population in my part of my town. Some of us got together and refitted a building to suit. It's just informal, unisex, no spectators except for the occasional player's boyfriend or girlfriend, but playing at family reunions is informal too. I was never heading for a pro position."

    "Damn," said Elsio's uncle. "Was going to tell you that if you want to run a restaurant and have a chance to play I could ask my sister if she wants to let you run a franchise..."

    Elsio laughed. "I'm happy with the restaurant I have," she said. "And with the league I have. Go Green Ribbons!"

    "Green Ribbons, seriously?" asked the nearest cousin.

    "I didn't vote for that team name," Elsio admitted. "We had to please a bunch of people including some who aren't exactly happy with being expats - there's this man who moved with his wife and she likes Safiria and he really doesn't - but - well."

    "Do the other teams have names that dumb?" the same cousin inquired.

    "Depends on what you think makes a dumb name. There's, let's see. Sister Nanthi's Nine. Least Cosash. The Squids -"

    Her mother butted in. "Are these all about where they're from - you're on the normal Mainlander team and then there's Islanders and Cosashi and Lake Province people - or -"

    "No, there's two Islanders and a Cosashi on the Green Ribbons," Elsio said. "But I guess the majorities did fall out that way. Except there's one more team, with a mix of players and no regional hint in what they call themselves."

    "What're they called?" asked Elsio's cousin.

    "Just, The Stikkers."

    I hope that if you're asked "How is Prel-Stick played?", the answer won't be "With gusto!"
