                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     No doubt about it, spring has arrived.  The sky is blue, the ground is not
covered in snow, and young women are walking around in skimpy clothing get
chillblains on unusual spots because it isn't WARM yet.  Still, these are all things
that make me feel good about life.  Or in my case, unlife.  Don't forget, *I* never
do, that I'm dead.  Do you know, there are actually people in Alastari who would tax
my unlife if I didn't have the best lawyer on the Isle at my shoulder?
     But you don't want to hear about that, you want to hear about fights.
     One hundred two fights, which is ridiculous, but I figure it's tourney
preparation.  Tourney managers and their warriors do what they gotta do, and the rest
of us work around it.  Eight challenges, and only nineteen standbys.  I guess a lot
of those mega-managers have ended up fighting each other.  Good!  The standbys
COMPLAIN so when they feel overworked.
     Significant point movements, Captured Pork up 42, B'ziadul down 31.  Same fight.
Apparently Job was most challenged.  Nobody was most avoided, so far as I can tell,
possibly because no avoids were posted.  That would tend to do it.
     So, here are the top twenty-four fights, including the title match, the
challenges, and fifteen others.

     BURIED TREASURE (33-7722) (48-16-0,190) of SEA DOGS fought CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC
(22-7035) (26-30-0,178) of ARE YOU ?.  BURIED TREASURE overpowered CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC
in a popular 1 minute uneven fight.  Really makes you wonder what was buried in that
Treasure, doesn't it?
     SHE'S A JAR (33-7804) (40-32-0,184) of SUMMERTEETH fought HARBOR MASTER (18-
10008) (39-18-1,199) of SEA DOGS.  SHE'S A JAR was overpowered by HARBOR MASTER in a
1 minute uneven fight.  I dunno if I'd call her a JAR, looked more like a bottle with
a message in it, to me.
     SUBPRIME RIB (81-1567) (47-43-1,188) of OTTO'S DINER fought CERES (99-3866) (26-
25-4,210) of DODEKATHEON.  SUBPRIME RIB was vanquished by CERES in a popular 1 minute
brutal mismatched fray.  Ceres looked at the Subprime and banquished it, demanding
something FULLY PRIME instead.
     SLITHERING IDIOT (10-6105) (41-16-0,188) of SERPENTS' HOLD fought DANG LEN (62-
4694) (33-23-0,153) of GARBAGE PAIL KIDS.  SLITHERING IDIOT vanquished DANG LEN in an
action packed 1 minute one-sided match.  That's the thing about slitherers.  You
think they're just lying there being inert, and the next thing you know, they've
thrown a couple of loops around your neck and you're in serious trouble.
     URA GONER (8-5214) (31-17-2,196) of YOU PAY I SLAY fought BLIND BLAKE (6-6814)
(30-19-2,169) of BLACK AND BLUES.  URA GONER was devastated by BLIND BLAKE in a
popular 1 minute one-sided contest.  It's her name.  She's cursed.

     ONE MIC (36-7580) (41-13-1,208) of STILLMATIC fought JUSTIN CREDIBLE (21-6514)
(32-22-2,200) of D.R.I..  ONE MIC overpowered JUSTIN CREDIBLE in a 1 minute
mismatched fight.  Incredible, isn't it?
     ARCHERS OF LOAF (43-4837) (35-21-0,185) of UNC COLLEGE RADIO fought HERO
SANDWICH (24-5021) (31-11-0,162) of SHEWISH BUFFET.  ARCHERS OF LOAF subdued HERO
SANDWICH in an exciting 1 minute bout.  Hey, the archers were REALLY HUNGRY.
     STICKY FINGERS (42-4523) (34-8-1,189) of DUNGEON CELL fought ONUPHRE (31-3385)
(44-68-1,191) of WHAMMO & THUDDA 4U!.  STICKY FINGERS was devastated by ONUPHRE in a
popular 1 minute mismatched brawl.  And the worst thing is, the Fingers were forced
to WASH in the Infirmary.
     SKIP JAMES (6-6579) (40-41-0,224) of BLACK AND BLUES fought DAGAN (21-7201) (54-
41-0,205) of BLOOD AND SAND.  SKIP JAMES was devastated by DAGAN in an exciting 1
minute uneven duel.  Black and blue and blood red on the sands.
     RUTH (18-10121) (53-47-0,219) of SHEPHERDS fought LORD'S PRAYER (35-4456) (27-
19-1,187) of FOOT OF PRIDE.  RUTH slimly won victory over LORD'S PRAYER in an action
packed 6 minute gory fight.  And "slim" looks very good on the lady, too.

     MANNY LEHMAN (51-5074) (48-50-1,224) of COLLEGE RADIO fought SHARON SHEW (101-
25) (0-0-0,181) of the Louts Local 101.  MANNY LEHMAN was bested by SHARON SHEW in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute bout.  The only standby in this batch of fights, and she WON.
Somebody should be ashamed of himself.  Where's your stamina?
     ETHER (36-7552) (42-27-1,211) of STILLMATIC fought HAMMERHEAD (35-4129) (57-66-
3,190) of SEA DOGS.  ETHER handily defeated HAMMERHEAD in an exciting 1 minute one-
sided contest.  Hammerhead just seemed to fall asleep.
     SURLY DECKHAND (21-6568) (80-75-1,215) of SEA DOGS fought KURT COBAIN (46-4253)
(43-34-0,221) of THE 27 CLUB.  SURLY DECKHAND defeated KURT COBAIN in an exciting 2
minute bloody match.  The Deckhand hurled scowls and unfriendly remarks the whole
time.
     ELEVENTH (12-6963) (44-32-0,220) of BLUE NOTE fought TWIGGY RAMEIZ (82-7105)
(28-19-1,198) of FEAR FACTORY II.  ELEVENTH was defeated by TWIGGY RAMEIZ in an
action packed 5 minute gory match.  And you know what, it worked, at the end of the
fight, when Twiggy went to shake his had, Eleventh was AFRAID.
     KULGAN (56-4268) (42-50-3,220) of MEN OF STEEL fought GOPHER BAROQUE (2-3359)
(96-82-0,197) of CREAM OF THE SLOP.  KULGAN was luckily beaten by GOPHER BAROQUE in
an action packed 7 minute gory duel.  Once the gophers move in, anything can happen,
and most of it bad.

The challenges:
     COWBOYS (97-5301) (7-5-4,20) of DEAD MAN'S HAND challenged CRIPPLE CREEK (84-
30907) (21-45-1,34) of LAST WALTZ.  Up 14.  COWBOYS was viciously subdued by CRIPPLE
CREEK in a 2 minute Challenge fight.  Seems odd; I thought they were a natural
pairing.
     FRONTAL ASSAULT (57-1800) (24-19-0,92) of STRAGETY, DAMMIT! challenged CHIRON
(17-4235) (25-24-3,100) of STRONGMEN.  Up 8.  FRONTAL ASSAULT was beaten by CHIRON in
a 1 minute Challenge brawl.  Yup.  Chiron isn't called a strongman for nothing.
     KID DYNAMITE (32-6091) (26-23-2,94) of STRAGETY, DAMMIT! challenged KINGU (50-
3575) (20-16-0,96) of MESOPOTAMIA.  Up 2.  KID DYNAMITE narrowly defeated KINGU in a
2 minute Challenge struggle.  Dynamite strategy, Kid.
     BOA (1-8830) (27-37-0,136) of SERPENTS' HOLD challenged JOB (18-6129) (29-159-
0,173) of SHEPHERDS.  Up 37, I think.  This is the Most Challenged match.  BOA was
bested by JOB in an action packed 3 minute Challenge brawl.  Job may have a strange
record, but he's no push-over.

     SUICIDE KING (35-3104) (25-22-1,119) of ONE MAN GANG challenged INCREDIBLE SPEED
(75-476) (34-43-0,147) of CRITICALS.  Up 28.  SUICIDE KING slimly lost to INCREDIBLE
SPEED in a popular 2 minute Challenge fight.  I'd call that challenge almost...
suicidal.
     SLICE CONSTRUCT (56-3181) (25-22-1,130) of ANYWAYUSLICEIT challenged BIG BILL
BROONZY (6-6640) (35-34-0,135) of BLACK AND BLUES.  Up 5.  SLICE CONSTRUCT defeated
BIG BILL BROONZY in a crowd pleasing 1 minute Challenge duel.  Slice him and dice
him.
     TAL (46-3106) (21-17-2,112) of WE GOT GAME challenged XYLOID (65-7141) (31-30-
1,112) of SCRABBLE.  Straight across.  TAL vanquished XYLOID in an exciting 1 minute
uneven Challenge battle.  Ha!  You thought Tal only did chess.  Now you know better.
     FEZZIK (45-814) (24-14-1,133) of MAX'S MIRACLE challenged KICK INTHE TEETH (82-
7173) (29-29-3,139) of GWAR.  Up 6.  FEZZIK devastated KICK INTHE TEETH in a 1 minute
mismatched Challenge fight.  A name like "kick in the teeth"?  It's an invitation is
what it is.

And for the title:
     ERIK (56-3399) (51-73-0,258) of MEN OF STEEL fought ARTHUR DENT (11-7305) (42-
47-0,214) of THE HITCHHIKERS.  ERIK vanquished ARTHUR DENT in a 1 minute uneven Title
duel.  And Erik holds onto his title.  Good work, Erik.  Keep it up.

     Zeb Karan around the big table.  Arena staff of all ranks and titles sat and 
stared at each other:  arenamasters, standbys, Dark Arena warriors, stewards and 
infirmarians, even the maintenance crew.  This was not the first time they'd met like 
this, and it probably wouldn't be the last.
     "So this is it again, is it?" Lew Voth asked.  "Less than seven years since they 
closed Dwes Eg to new teams, and now they're closing Blackstone?"
     "Only to new teams," one of the spymasters pointed out.  "And it's necessary.  
There are several file rooms we haven't been able to enter in months because they're 
too full of team records."
     "Nothing you couldn't fix with a lighted match," Jame Rinvar suggested.  
Technically he should not have been there, since he'd taken over full time as the 
arenamaster of Shadowspire.  But no one wanted to tell him to leave.
     "We may NEED those records one of these days," Chief Steward Hesselrod protested.  
"We can't burn RECORDS."
     "I could," Rinvar said.
     "But you won't."  Voth pinned him with a stare.  "Don't stir up trouble for its 
own sake, Jame."
     Rinvar raised his hand in a gesture of surrender.  "I'll be good, Lew."
     "When are they shutting down Blackstone?"
     "To new teams only, remember--the old ones will keep fighting if their managers 
want to pay the fees.  This week.  Maybe next week.  Hard to be sure, when you travel 
from Alastari to anywhere else, there's a time distortion effect.  But probably this 
week.  Same operating rules as Dwes Eg (82):  no new teams in, but the old ones can 
recruit new members.  New teams will go to the new place--"  Zeb Karan cast a look of 
enquiry around the room.
     "Jasper Gulch," a steward said.
     "Right.  New teams will go to Jasper Gulch.  I'm not sure the day for it, probably 
'opposite' Blackstone in the schedule.  A regular two-week cycle.  Teams can be 
transfered in from regular arenas, I suppose, but not OUT."
     Voth nodded.  "We can work with this."
     "Beats not working."
