                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Novgorodny Vir again.  Bah.  Look on his works and despair?  Definitely.  
Practically nothing, a handful of snow melting away.  Yep, we had snow again here.  
Cold stuff, but it melted fast.
     A fairly quiet day here, except for the injured gladiators screaming, the 
spectator roaring, stuff like that.  Twenty-five fights, no challenges or avoids, no 
deaths, three standbys.  It's probably pushing myself and the spy report too hard to 
talk about all the fights, but I'm gonna.  We had a personal!  A really good one.  I'm 
all excited, and I WILL talk.

For the title:
     CAT IN THE HAT (24-3103) (195-120-1,246) of THE SEUSS HEUSS fought B'ZIADUL (71-
3311) (67-45-1,237) of WRATHMEN XIV.  CAT IN THE HAT was viciously subdued by B'ZIADUL 
in a 3 minute Title fight.  And the Cat is OUT (and hatless).  Congratulations to 
B'ziadul.

     SACRIFICE (82-12669) (26-14-2,220) of GAMES PEOPLE PLAY fought EVENING STAR (60-
8819) (37-53-0,191) of SUPERIOR FORCES 60.  SACRIFICE demolished EVENING STAR in a 
popular 1 minute one-sided melee.  Really?  I thought it was just the effect of the 
overcast.
     OHMYGOD (63-2147) (64-34-1,224) of WRATHMEN fought INNY MEANIE (24-4656) (32-24-
0,190) of MONEY PIT.  OHMYGOD vanquished INNY MEANIE in a 1 minute mismatched brawl.  
When it's a random match, you can't complain about a mis-match, can you?  Although in 
the absence of tourney information, you can't really know anyway.
     BARBARIAN (12-4783) (82-79-0,238) of SUPERIOR FORCES 22T fought HIDDEN DOOM (82-
12390) (28-19-2,208) of HAUNTED CASTLE.  BARBARIAN defeated HIDDEN DOOM in a exciting 
3 minute bloody fight.  Well, um, good.  Barbarians don't go in for that "doom" stuff.
     MARS (52-2609) (109-73-0,259) of INCARNATIONS fought GHRYSHAN (105-25) (0-0-
0,181) of the Guys.  MARS devastated GHRYSHAN in a crowd pleasing 1 minute brutal one-
sided duel.  That, I can call a mis-match without fear of contradiction, since we all 
know that Ghryshan has no hidden tourney fights.  Good thing, too.  You can see that 
he has no tentacles HIMSELF, but he hangs out with those who do.

     POSITIVE (26-3633) (162-109-0,246) of WARCKERS fought BELA LUGOSI (40-4114) (54-
63-1,209) of SUPERIOR FORCES.  POSITIVE unbelievably bested BELA LUGOSI in a popular 2 
minute competition.  Positively unbelievable?  No... I don't think there was ONE WORD 
of unbelievability.
     FURTIVE RETURNS (29-4186) (112-257-1,202) of SUPERIOR FORCES 5R fought SHAVED 
MONKEY (71-5133) (54-38-0,201) of SECOND CHANCES.  FURTIVE RETURNS was handily 
defeated by SHAVED MONKEY in a 1 minute uneven melee.  Listen, this is Andorak.  We 
don't do "furtive" here.
     COLYN SHEA (30-5368) (27-11-2,193) of WRATHMEN fought DREAM CATCHER (74-3177) 
(45-40-1,152) of SECOND CHANCES.  COLYN SHEA was overpowered by DREAM CATCHER in a 
popular 1 minute uneven duel.  This is about the only fight Vir talked about (he did 
notice the change in the King's Sentinel, but just in passing.)  He said, "SECOND 
CHANCES had cause to celebrate, after DREAM CATCHER got 40 points by beating COLYN 
SHEA.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, DREAM CATCHER was winsome, after 
beating COLYN SHEA and seeing him lose 29 points."
     SAVORY (32-4143) (92-112-1,181) of DEAD WE SUCK fought SECRET DOOM (82-13973) 
(19-11-2,186) of HAUNTED CASTLE.  SAVORY was overpowered by SECRET DOOM in a 1 minute 
uneven match.  Probably the beans.  I've got a brother who swears that beans will 
cause secret or not-so-secret doom.  Ah, for those who don't know, beans are seasoned 
with savory.  And if you give green beans to my brother, he WILL throw them up.  
Disgusting.
     LLUPERIOR (33-6529) (78-94-1,201) of SUPERIOR FORCES 2Y fought SILENT DOOM (82-
12389) (26-14-0,204) of HAUNTED CASTLE.  LLUPERIOR luckily beat SILENT DOOM in a 
exciting 3 minute brutal fight.  Doom everywhere.  There are days like that, and with 
snow drifting down over the arena, well, I'm not surprised.

     NAKED TRUTH (15-5162) (51-42-2,206) of BOOK OF THOMAS fought G.I.I.L. (12-5155) 
(39-60-0,177) of SUPERIOR FORCES 22T.  NAKED TRUTH bested G.I.I.L. in a crowd pleasing 
2 minute conflict.  I'm surprised the fight went into the second minute; it's too cold 
to be out there naked.
     MERCURY RISING (97-1378) (18-19-4,203) of WAR SEEKERS fought JIMI (105-27) (0-0-
0,240) of the Guys.  MERCURY RISING was demolished by JIMI in a 1 minute mismatched 
match.  Good show!  Hey, I work with the standbys a lot, Jimi does the windows here in 
the tower.  Of course I'm glad for him.
     ERICKA BEARICKA (63-2461) (64-55-0,190) of MONSTER CHILD fought TESSHIAN (105-22) 
(0-0-0,181) of the Guys.  ERICKA BEARICKA overpowered TESSHIAN in a popular 1 minute 
mismatched conflict.  Tesshian, eh.  He's a bit of a monster child himself.  *I* think 
he's growing tentacles.  It's the company he keeps.  Tentacles can be contagious.
     ALBINO RAINBOW (11-6238) (68-43-2,199) of WAR-C-KERS fought JULIANNE (84-19630) 
(33-53-0,161) of SUPE FORCES 2A02.  ALBINO RAINBOW vanquished JULIANNE in a action 
packed 1 minute mismatched bout.  Al sliced her into julianne strips, in fact.
     REAL GUANO (75-3088) (56-27-2,207) of SECOND CHANCES fought K. CARSON (8-3609) 
(30-25-0,175) of SUPERIOR FORCES.  REAL GUANO overpowered K. CARSON in a 1 minute 
mismatched brawl.  You know, you want to watch out for things like that.  You can't 
ever tell what might be lurking in guano.

     DARK CHAMPION (4-5689) (62-52-0,175) of DEMON LORE fought SIF (71-3925) (25-20-
0,180) of SUPERIOR FORCES Y3.  DARK CHAMPION viciously subdued SIF in a 2 minute 
brutal fight.  Sometimes I wonder if it's properly Andorian to have a DARK champion.  
He is, after all, from a Delarquan home arena.
     BEAULIEU (41-3057) (57-47-0,171) of WRATHMEN fought ENCHANTED (30-4517) (24-31-
0,102) of CRYSTAL PALACE.  BEAULIEU demolished ENCHANTED in a exciting 1 minute gory 
one-sided bout.  Experience weighs heavily.
     RALLOK (46-2609) (19-7-1,100) of CONQUEST fought VLADIA THE IMPALER (22-4893) 
(16-12-1,61) of SHADOW LANCERS.  RALLOK handily defeated VLADIA THE IMPALER in a 1 
minute mismatched competition.  My deepest sympathies for the graceful, well-spoken 
Vladia.  Another day shall see more success.
     SUPERIOR SNOTLING (18-10095) (8-0-0,98) of SUPERIOR FORCES 6N fought SNOWY SNOW 
(30-4597) (25-19-0,75) of CRYSTAL PALACE.  SUPERIOR SNOTLING vanquished SNOWY SNOW in 
a action packed 1 minute one-sided match.  A crude fellow, the Snotling is.  Euwh.  I 
could tell you tales!
     KEELAN (41-4667) (20-2-0,68) of WRATHMEN! fought JUSTICE (26-4709) (17-17-0,34) 
of WARCKERS.  KEELAN was overcome by JUSTICE in a 3 minute contest.  This seems 
proper.  Not that I have any idea what Keelan might have done to deserve it.

     UNSCATHED (30-4516) (23-32-0,44) of CRYSTAL PALACE fought SMOKING MINA (25-5864) 
(14-25-3,56) of EMPYREAN COUNCIL.  UNSCATHED was savagely defeated by SMOKING MINA in 
a popular 2 minute gory match.  And now he's Scathed.  If y'all come to dinner in 
alphabetical order, Scathed now eats earlier.  This is good; the best stuff is often 
gone by the time the end of the line comes up.
     YUCKY TUCKY (26-4460) (18-9-1,66) of SHERWOOD FOREST fought BESTARIUS (11-8024) 
(21-18-2,83) of SCORPIONS.  YUCKY TUCKY viciously subdued BESTARIUS in a popular 1 
minute gruesome match.  There's something incredibly yucky about Tucky.
     DE DE MAO (26-4397) (19-10-2,67) of SHERWOOD FOREST fought DOMINO (25-5865) (21-
22-1,34) of EMPYREAN COUNCIL.  DE DE MAO overpowered DOMINO in a 1 minute one-sided 
bout.  As the dominoes are tipped, so they fall, or something like that.
     SAPPER (26-4243) (18-11-2,79) of SHERWOOD FOREST fought ATHROGATE IRONFORGE (60-
9038) (20-37-1,46) of THE ELITE.  SAPPER vanquished ATHROGATE IRONFORGE in a action 
packed 1 minute gory uneven but.  But what KIND of sap?  I've always wondered about 
that.  Pine sap is sticky, maple sap is sweet, and there's a whole range in between.
     ROSIE THE RIVETER (11-7942) (17-33-2,34) of SCORPIONS fought MERCURY'S SPIRIT 
(97-2218) (16-12-5,74) of WAR SEEKERS'.  ROSIE THE RIVETER was handily defeated by 
MERCURY'S SPIRIT in a 1 minute bout.  Well, of course.  Who can rivet mercury?  It 
just slips away.

And there you have it, twenty-five fights with some sort of comment for each.  Don't 
expect that every time.  It's too much strain.

All -- Hi.  It's me, Vladia.  I'm from Solven.  So, this is Andorak?  Or, The 
Alternative Andorak Circuit as I like to call it.  It's... different.  It's okay, I 
got my big girl panties on, but enough about me.  I hear there's a handsome former 
janitor around here somewhere?  A man of many talents.  A remarkable man, and not just 
for his spy reporting prowess.  I hear he can really clean your drains and flush your 
pipes, too! -- Vladia

     (several minutes of shocked silence)  YES!!!

Congrats to the grads. -- Green Eyes

                          MAKING YOUR CHALLENGES GO THROUGH

     First, you need to be sure you are making your challenges correctly.
     1.  Are you writing down the warrior I.D. number of the warrior you want to 
challenge?
     2.  Is your handwriting clear?
     3.  Is the warrior you are challenging within range of your warrior?  Warriors 
can challenge within their own class and the next higher class, plus the "Challenger" 
classes can also challenge the next lower class.  So, an Adept can challenge Adepts 
and Challenger Adepts.  A Challenger Adept can challenge Adepts, Challenger Adepts, 
and Champions.  (Try not to challenge down, though.  Besides being unsportsmanlike and 
making everyone mad, it isn't advantageous to your warriors.  They need to fight more 
experienced warriors so they will learn.)
     4.  Are your warriors eligible to make challenges?  If they didn't fight within 
the last two turns, then they can't challenge.
     5.  Are the warriors they want to fight eligible to receive challenges?  If they 
didn't fight within the last two turns, then they can't be challenged.

     Next, adjust your choices for the maximum likelihood of getting your challenges.  
There are several things that will help:
     1.  Have each of your warriors challenge two different opponents from two 
different teams.  That way, if the first opponent's team doesn't fight that turn, you 
still might get your second challenge.
     2.  Use your avoids.  Have each warrior avoid the teams of whoever you think 
might be likely to challenge him.  If you can get out of being challenged, that 
increases your chance of getting your own challenge through.
     3.  Don't challenge warriors who didn't fight last turn.  The odds are higher 
that they won't be fighting this turn.
     4.  Don't challenge warriors who might be involved in a bloodfeud (either as the 
killers, or the avengers).  A bloodfeud challenge has priority over all other 
challenges.
     5.  Don't challenge Tournament Victors.  A TV challenge has priority over all 
other challenges except bloodfeuds.  You'll need to do a little research in back 
issues of the newsletter to find out who the TVs are.
     6.  Don't challenge warriors who you know are going to challenge someone else, or 
are going to get challenged by someone else.  Your challenge has a better chance of 
getting through if it is the only challenge to that particular warrior.
     7.  Don't challenge the "easy pickings."  That is, warriors above you who have 
way too few fights or very bad records for where they are ranked.  They will tend to 
get challenged a lot.
     8.  Don't challenge warriors who are likely to be avoiding your team.  This 
includes any warrior your team fought within the last two turns.
     Well, it sounds like I've eliminated just about everybody, doesn't it?  Of course 
you can challenge opponents who fit into one or more of those categories; just try to 
find ones who don't.  Your idea candidate for a challenge is:  A warrior ranked 
somewhat above your warrior in the same class, or in the next higher class, with a few 
more fights than your warrior, and a winning record, who isn't a TV and isn't 
currently at war with anyone.
     I hope this will be of some help to you.
