The fake CC Arbitration Team. How did the real CC handle them?

Yes, that works. And since the glamour is known, it will be easy for the fake team to use it.

It would be amusing if Wencit had kept his planned treachery secret from and announced to his own troops that a CC team would be turning up, so the real team could sweep through un-opposed.

Why does the fake CC arbitration team have to be Deryni?

The arbitration team, if real, would have ensured that there was no cheating and that the duel was properly engaged in. Wencit only wanted them present to make it look like he was following the rules. Since he assumed (I think) that Kelson didn't have any REAL (trained) Deryni on his side, Wencit may have assumed that Kelson's side would not know if he cheated. He could have made his fake arbitration team four Torenthi soldiers or four anybodies!

They would have to be Deryni to cast the outer circle ward that went around the Kelson's ward.

Yes, of course. Thank you!

I bet Wincet would have thought Kelson would not know that the CC would cast another circle, since they didn't at his duel with Charissa. They didn't count on Arilan being there, who at least "Rhydon" knew to be ON the CC.

IIRC, Arilan specifically says that the plan would be to ambush Kelson with extra magical might - but even if that is what is written, there's no way Arilan could know what Wencit was planning, so that isn't proof.

I'm inclined to agree with him though. There's simply no upside to using humans. If they are outed as humans, it reveals the trick; as Deryni they can help kill Kelson.
