I doubt it had anything to > do with not wanting to show the window or anything like that (or if it did > it was trivial). I don't recall the "info"bit above. I preconcurred re "M didn't expect to return" (incidentally I wonder if he told Teldra he was off on a suicide mission), but the idea of M not being in a rush to die seems highly unlikely, also the idea of him wanting to linger in the presence of Vlad. On the other hand, one suspects he could have set teleport beacons (a la Vlad in Athyra) and zapped home instead of sleeping out in the wilderness, so presumably he had some nostalgic desire to rough it - also note that he and V spend the better part giving $kethna-part gambling lessons. On the other hand, perhaps he wanted to get a better feel for whether he could trust V, though V's part in the retrieval of the staff would have been convincing. Dunno, still seems unlikely to me. - Philip ps here's a possible teleport method for crossing featureless land - get a slingshot, a teleport beacon, and you're off.
