[no spoiler space, just spoiler warning :-]

This may have been discussed earlier, but it's my turn to re-read
_Dragon_, so I'm going to ask about/mention it anyways.

In _Dragon_, during the denument, Vlad says (about sneaking up on

	Morrolan spotted me, although I was awfully close when he
	did; he probably doesn't know how I did that, or maybe he just
	thinks he was concentrating too hard on Fornia.

This seems to indicate that whatever Morrolan thinks about how Vlad
did that...he's wrong.
Now...Morrolan -knows- Vlad is awfully good at sneaking. So that can't
be it.
And if it were some kind of sorcery, it probably wouldn't have worked,
and certainly wouldn't have been a secret from Morrolan, certainly not
when the story is dictated, while Vlad is courting Cawti and has been
friends with Morrolan for years.

Anyone have ideas?  I think Vlad's been eating well by this point, so
it wouldn't be a Taltos thing, if so...unless I'm wrong; he -has- lost
a lot of time, and might have missed enough meals for this to be an
issue, I guess.
