                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

My friends,

     Bouncy Bottom was challenged seven times, which is more than anyone else.  Well
done, Talahya!  None of those challenges got through, though because our Tower
Guardian has a TV challenge of her own.
     There were only two TV challenges today, at least two that went through.
          BOUNCY BOTTOM (9-4393) (58-30-2,308) of UNRELATED TV challenged WHITE WATER
HIPPO (18-7050) (38-30-3,213) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  BOUNCY BOTTOM butchered WHITE
WATER HIPPO in a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.  So this fight covers several of my
usual topics in one fell swoop.  Bouncy was most challenged, she made a TV challenge,
and she accounted for the single death in our arena this cycle.  W.W.H. has been sent
an arrangement of cattails, dried eggplant, and milkweed pods which should gracefully
adorn something or other for years to come.  Bouncy did not write a DM column.  I
think White Water Hippo would have done so.  Tsk tsk.
          RUTH OF JUDAH (36-5192) (25-15-1,111) of REVELATIONS TV challenged PEGASUS
(6-4161) (18-17-1,101) of KREWE OF DRUID.  RUTH OF JUDAH was demolished by PEGASUS in
a 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  That was our other TV challenge.
     The Republicans were most avoided and The Democrats avoided them the most.  I'm
from Valamantis myself, but this guy at the Commission office, an immigrant from one
of the chaos realms, said "as well they should."  So I guess those team names
represent two chaotic contingents.
     Everyone likes to watch Ho-Chan the Axe fight, even when he loses.  GRASS MUNCH
(18-3971) (67-47-0,204) of MEET MY MOOSE fought HO-CHAN THE AXE (75-670) (99-137-
2,200) of SAND DANCERS.  GRASS MUNCH viciously subdued HO-CHAN THE AXE in a popular 2
minute gory brawl.
     As always, the audience gave their sympathy vote to a warrior they felt was
scummed.  SIR VIVOR (10-4065) (67-34-0,198) of SIR AGLIO challenged SERVLET SALLY
(82-5895) (27-11-0,200) of SUPERIOR FORCES 7Q.  SIR VIVOR outlasted SERVLET SALLY in
a crowd pleasing 9 minute Challenge match.  That's why Sally is this week's favorite
warrior.
     The crowd didn't think too much of Swingdaddy-O, who lost badly to a lower-
ranked warrior.  S. MARY ROSE (78-2313) (25-25-1,54) of HABIT fought SWINGDADDY-O
(42-3921) (19-19-0,77) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  S. MARY ROSE demolished SWINGDADDY-O in a
1 minute uneven contest.  I don't know, I thought S. Mary looked pretty competent and
certainly she had more experience.
     And down in the basement of the rankings, we find Lawn Dart Goalie.  LAWN DART
GOALIE (17-6214) (18-11-0,44) of SPECIAL ED fought AMBITIOUS GUARD (100-9) (0-0-0,0)
of Arena Stand-Ins.  LAWN DART GOALIE was unbelievably bested by AMBITIOUS GUARD in a
1 minute bout.  Oh, the humiliation!
     Can that be it?  Is that all there is to the spyreport?  Do you want some
advice?  Here you go:  Riding a swaybacked horse causes the horse extreme pain.
However, such a horse can actually be trained to collect up his body with his
hindquarters more or less under him, so he is lifting with his haunches, not with his
back.  Mares that have carried a lot of foals, or any horse that has been too heavily
loaded for too long, or that was born with a long spine to begin with, may develop a
sway back.  Watch for this problem in your horse and try to rest your weight farther
back toward the haunches, where the animal is strongest.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Taxes -- Touche! -- Pla Y. Tex

Al Gore and The Democrats -- We went 2-0 against your tax and spend warriors.  How
did that feel?  We just know that Galen is a Republican! -- Judge, mgr. of the
Republicans and Legalese

Judge -- Well, I didn't enjoy that turn.  I have filed for a stay on any more
challenges.  Hopefully it goes through.  A word of advice, old foe, don't get too
comfy, or my Democrats will get their pound of flesh. -- Al Gore

Hearsay -- One more audit to do and you will be mine. -- Taxes

Comfortably Numb -- Good fight.  Catch you next time. -- C. Canary

Superiorboy -- Superior you may be, but you're still a boy. -- Ho-Chan the Axe
P.S.  And now, you will always be a boy.  Too bad, you're missing a lot of the really
good stuff.

Peace -- Or pieces. -- Similde, frankly gloating

Zagnut -- Seven clashes to start with!  I was exhausted by the time the fight
actually got under way. -- Small Cat

Couch Potato -- I'd really like to see somebody--anybody--make you into couch fries
or hashbrowns. -- Zin
P.S.  Or mashed couch potatoes.

Blue Meanie -- Well named.  (sigh)  And you really clashed with my cerise surcoat,
too. -- Glory

Seitan -- (sigh)  Maybe it's time I retired from the arena and went back to the mud-
wrestling circuit. -- Charlie

D'Weasel Zappa -- Nice dodging there.  Didn't help, but you are as slippery as your
name. -- Khirza

Good Ol' Herb -- I don't know if I've ever almost gotten the jump on your style
before.  It was a pleasure to fight you. -- Fireheart

     Citizens of Ghea (only the ignorant fail to note Lirith Kai is not in Alastari),
no new day is rising, but the sun is setting on just another beautiful evening.
While you were sleeping, an irksome rabble has entered the always fair Aruak City.
Of course they fought alongside our warriors, most not so treasured, as all
gladiators do.  They drank with themselves, and slept with themselves.  Whether they
had masks, who cares.
     Warriors, don't be afraid.  For years Aruak has been one of the safest cities in
Ghea, and that custom has been continually cultivated, and will continue to be by
those who have called it home for years and those who live, fight, and die by the
same ethics.  There is no contest, nor has there ever needed to be one for many
years.  A conflict of personalities has arisen, and the city has been 'invaded' by
pests.
     Any rules that are annouced will be purely for the joy of the lemmings' own
little world.  Those who are being targeted have no interest in participating except
to defend the integrity of an arena that is different from others.  Whether you
choose to come to Aruak, do it for your own reasons, not theirs.
    Competing in Aruak City has never been for the faint of heart or the weak willed.
Combat is combat, wherever you go.  Blood will flow as always, and now many innocents
will be caught in the middle, but those who defend Aruak's traditions never target
those who bring respect of Aruaki customs with them to our home.
    So ignore the private ranting announcement brought by the stuporous
Frothingsloshers.  If you choose Aruak City, do not choose it for an unsanctioned and
bogus 'contest', choose it for the tradition.  Choose it because Aruak is different.

Defenders of Aruak

To any that care -- The CDC is back; our current roster is:
     Malaquar -- Minion of Guardian
     Pip the Troll -- Burly Enforcer Type
     mouse -- Official Sneaky Bastard
     Papa Bear -- Elder Statesmen
                     The Sealer says, "Hi, I'm the dealer."
                     Papa Bear says, "It's not my f****n fault."
Guardian -- Paper Figurehead

An Announcement Concerning the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance:
     I have chosen to withdraw my membership from the Brotherhood of the Blade
alliance.  The years I have spent in the alliance have been the best of my DM career.
I leave the alliance with many great friends and will always remain close to my
former brethren.
     The Brotherhood of the Blade will not skip a beat without my membership.  It
remains in very capable hands and its roster is among the strongest in the game.
With the return on some of its founding members to DM, I know the BOB will continue
to grow in strength and prestige in the years to come. -- The Sandman
