Hullo!

It's cold and gray, it's about to start sleeting, and it's time for another Darkholm
spy report.  Joy!

     There were two challenges today, no deaths, and ten fights which included two
stand-ins.  Li'l Red, Omaha, and Tolais Deepheart had the distinction of appearing
both on the popularity list and the unpopularity list.

     KING OF DARKHOLM (12-4856) (66-43-1,355) of THOSE WHO RULE challenged TOLAIS
DEEPHEART (42-1620) (161-159-0,210) of HIGHLANDERS.  KING OF DARKHOLM viciously
subdued TOLAIS DEEPHEART in a 1 minute Challenge fight.  Ms Deepheart is our top-
ranked Wall of Steel.
     E AHO LAULA (21-4224) (69-44-0,288) of WIDER IS BETTER challenged MIKEL (6-6190)
(57-66-3,184) of THE LADY'S LIST.  E AHO LAULA subdued MIKEL in an exciting 1 minute
Challenge melee.  Mikel is top-rated Slasher.
     LI'L RED (43-3200) (60-21-2,229) of RIDERS OF THE HOOD fought ADOLPH EICHMANN
(84-37835) (34-27-0,182) of MY MAIN MEN.  LI'L RED overpowered ADOLPH EICHMANN in a 1
minute mismatched Title duel.  Li'l Red is top Lunger.
     ZAKAU (5-4623) (75-82-0,194) of JOHNS fought WYVERN (33-2457) (30-34-0,172) of
OBSIDIAN HALL.  ZAKAU overpowered WYVERN in a crowd pleasing 1 minute gruesome
mismatched match.
     GLAMDRING (33-2328) (37-20-1,193) of OBSIDIAN HALL fought SHEWISH GIANT (104-25)
(0-0-0,181) of The Invincibles.  GLAMDRING was defeated by SHEWISH GIANT in an
exciting 1 minute struggle.  Despite losing, Glamdring is the highest-ranked Total
Parry.

     FATALITY (7-5820) (44-36-0,163) of BRUTAL LEGION fought OMAHA (42-4796) (23-12-
1,132) of DEALER'S CHOICE.  FATALITY was devastated by OMAHA in an action packed 1
minute one-sided competition.  Fatality is top Striker, while Omaha is our best Aimed
Blow.
     PELIS THE TRUE (42-3469) (55-78-1,161) of HIGHLANDERS fought STING (10-429) (23-
23-2,121) of THE HOLY LEGION.  PELIS THE TRUE lost to STING in an action packed 2
minute gruesome duel.  No stylemasters here.
     PHILTHRY (42-2079) (59-50-0,119) of HIGHLANDERS fought ZEUS (62-4010) (52-30-
0,142) of LEGION OF LEGEND.  PHILTHRY savagely defeated ZEUS in an action packed 3
minute gory duel.
     RYANATOR (33-3462) (37-36-0,145) of OBSIDIAN HALL fought ANGRY BOOKIE (104-11)
(15-10-0,150) of The Invincibles.  RYANATOR luckily beat ANGRY BOOKIE in an action
packed 5 minute gory match.
     KODICROME (84-37861) (17-15-1,71) of IN THE LONG RUN fought JHAARAN (10-2017)
(18-8-1,84) of THE HOLY LEGION.  KODICROME savagely defeated JHAARAN in an exciting 3
minute bloody match.

In all, it was a rather unexciting turn.  I watched hopefully for the appearance of
Dirk Cholera as a stand-in, since his appearance generates drama in more than one
way, but he was evidently busy.  I also hoped for the Desiree stand-in because she
always shows a lot of cleavage... but no.

So, that seems to be it.  This is a good day for folks on the Isle to stay in.  Keep
warm, and see you in a fortnight!

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Wyvern -- You didn't stand a chance.  It might ease some concerns, though, to know
that in our fight, I hardly even hit what I was aiming at.  I didn't TRY to hit you
in the neck, or in the groin. -- Tolais Deepheart

Mikel -- Well fought!  And you seem to be very fast, or at least... perhaps we're
both equally slow. -- Pelis the True

Ryanator -- That was... long.  But you're not really scummy.  Actually you're rather
aggressive.  Well fought. -- Philthry
