                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Fellow Immigrants to Talahya, greetings!

     Here's what your spyreporter can tell you that couldn't be deduced from a close
study of the newsletters:  Gordon was our most challenged warrior, and Neognosis
avoided Color Me Suave.  Not much to tell, is it?
     Since Gordon was also our Tower Guardian, let's take a closer look at that
fight.  MARCO (51-5008) (34-15-2,264) of BOY O'S TV challenged GORDON (36-4536) (44-
16-1,284) of BARNYARD BRUTES.  MARCO devastated GORDON in an action packed 1 minute
mismatched Challenge Title fight.  Now, that is the Commission's official record of
the fight.  Let's take an even closer look at it.  From the Arenamaster's signal to
begin to his signal to stop, the fight lasted forty-one seconds.  Six blows were
attempted, five of them by ace lunger Marco, and four of Marco's blows landed.
Gordon, an aimed blow, spent a little too much time choosing his opportunity and a
little too little time dodging.  I'd say it served Gordon right after slaying the
popular Dali Parton last cycle and then not writing a column, not to mention the fact
that he actually walked out on the sands in a yellow quilted jacket.  Mind you I am
not a fashion expert, but to the best of my ability to judge, that was a honking ugly
garment, and I'm not even counting the big smiley face on the back.  Brrrrr!  And
this fight returned Belial to his old post as our top aimed blow, following his match
against Magma.  BELIAL (7-3838) (94-69-2,256) of WICKED MARTYRS fought MAGMA (75-
2049) (61-42-0,189) of FORCE OF NATURE.  BELIAL overpowered MAGMA in a crowd pleasing
1 minute mismatched bout.
     Of course, our overall popularity leader is Ho-Chan the Axe.  He was also this
cycle's most popular, which means that his fight was a real doozy.  DOMINO (17-3227)
(51-38-2,212) of THE OFFENDERS fought HO-CHAN THE AXE (75-670) (101-141-2,197) of
SAND DANCERS.  DOMINO savagely defeated HO-CHAN THE AXE in an exciting 13 minute
gruesome brawl.  Obviously if it took thirteen minutes it wasn't all that savage or
gruesome, but it had at least a moderate amount of action throughout all the minutes
except maybe the fifth.  Ho-Chan is a very gymnastic fighter and several times leaped
over Domino's weapon, which always thrills the crowd.
     Now, if you like really long fights you would be in the minority, because Hotta
Watta was voted our least popular warrior this cycle.  PERSONAL BEJEEZUS (12-5451)
(14-4-0,69) of ESTIMATED PROPHETS fought HOTTA WATTA (10-5038) (18-6-0,60) of
TOWNSVILLAINS.  PERSONAL BEJEEZUS outwaited HOTTA WATTA in a crowd boring 19 minute
bloody fray.  It was bloody, but boring.  The public is so hard to please.
     Just one of our number died this cycle.  EARTHQUAKE (75-1663) (81-53-1,200) of
FORCE OF NATURE fought WHITE WATER HIPPO (18-7050) (41-33-3,163) of CENTER FOR OLDS.
EARTHQUAKE assassinated WHITE WATER HIPPO in a 1 minute gruesome uneven fight.
Hippo, please accept this potted century plant as a gesture of sympathy from the
Commission.  I am sure you will receive some commiseration, as well, from your
teammate Dali Parton.
     Last cycle we saw Narcissistic Nun at the bottom of the rankings but I did not
mention her as such because she was inactive.  This cycle she fought, but remained at
the bottom.  OREL HERSHISER (74-3180) (13-11-0,50) of 1988 DODGERS fought
NARCISSISTIC NUN (69-8644) (5-2-0,19) of ODD SQUAD.  OREL HERSHISER devastated
NARCISSISTIC NUN in a 2 minute bloody uneven match.  That lets Swingdaddy-O off the
hook although he didn't do too well this cycle.  BIG BROTHER (3-5568) (43-63-0,42) of
FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT fought SWINGDADDY-O (42-3921) (19-25-0,35) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  BIG
BROTHER unbelievably bested SWINGDADDY-O in an exciting 4 minute brawl.  At least it
was unbelievable.  The Daddy must be doing better.
     There were just two successful TV challenges this cycle.  One was Marco's
challenge of Gordon and the other was COMFORTABLY NUMB (96-855) (21-8-5,134) of
FLOYD'S PINK BRO' TV challenged SEITAN (17-4403) (30-32-1,144) of KINDRED OF KAOS.
COMFORTABLY NUMB narrowly defeated SEITAN in an exciting 3 minute gory Challenge
melee.  We liked it, yes we did.  That was a thrilling fight.
     It's time to wrap up the report.  Enjoy the holidays and try to remember that
it's all about finding a spirit of warmth and benevolence in your heart, not about
decorations and gifts.

                               With very best wishes for your health and happiness,
                                  Galen

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Glory -- In case John Holmes doesn't answer and tell you what he's gifted at...locker
room gossip has it that the gods gifted him in the area of...uhm...big biceps. --
Gazelle

Ed 209 -- That was just silly.  You should not thrust with that kind of force when
you are exhausted.  Bad form! -- Gazelle

Glacier -- I like the way your muscles ripple when you swing that thing.  You're real
hard to parry, too.  But we both looked really good out there.  I was surprised
neither of us made the popularity list.  The crowd was jeering, then cheering, then
gasping in horror...I thought they loved us, didn't you? -- Khirza

Ho-Chan the Axe -- A feathered hat is better than a furry one. -- Khirza

     Not in winter! -- Ed., who suffers from cold ears

Scribe -- I've been following the stories and enjoying them.  Well done! -- mgr.
Castaways

Big Brother -- Remind me to explain the concept of a "weapon" to you sometime. --
Mike Believe

Magellan -- A good try, but my natural feline superiority was enough...that time,
anyway. -- Small Cat
P.S.  I won't teach as well if you come back again.

Sorrow -- You want skills from me, you have to lose the fight.  At least, that's the
way I was taught to do it. -- Zin

Mr. Wrinkle-Free -- (leans close and presses a little crease into his sleeve)  Some
declarations are just too much of a challenge. -- Similde

Just a Job to Do -- Rotten attitude. -- Ho-Chan the Axe

Baretta -- Drat.  Good fight. -- Glory

The Eternal Pledge -- Your furniture always shines, right?  Or is it your floors? --
Charlie

Eastwood -- Good challenge for you.  Thanks for the skills though. -- Al Gore

John -- A nice and easy win that pays out two skills.  Thanks. -- C. Canary

Dropped Soap -- You can use the showers first.  I'll wait till you are done. --
Clinton

Let it be known far and wide, that the Warrior TUM 18-7380, the Champions Runner-Up
for the recent Tournament, is managed by none other than Shocking Toad.  I named this
fabulous warrior after my friend and mentor, TUM, a.k.a. Don!  Sorry TUM didn't get
me my first TC; however, a runner-up with all those sandbaggers is pretty impressive,
if I do say so myself. -- Shocking Toad, The Manager

13 November 2003
All -- This is to announce that I am no longer a member of the Vendetta Cartel
Alliance.  I have enjoyed my time there, and I've made some great friends.  Their
company will be missed, but they will endure.  I wish them well. -- Apex

Greetings!  I would like to invite everyone to Jhans (DM 36) for the first annual kLk
St. Valentine's Day Massacre (kill contest).  We will start the contest off with the
ceremonial burning of the Andorian flag on turn 450.  (Six turns away.  Roughly mid-
February.)  The contest will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461, 3 separate victors will
be announced.  Team with the most kills, warrior with the most kills, and alliance
with the most kills.  Prizes will be awarded to the manager of the team with the most
kills and to the manager of the warrior with the most kills.  The prizes will
probably be team roll-ups.  The number of roll-ups has yet to be determined.  The
contest is sponsored by Jhans' newest, (but by the time the contest starts) largest
alliance, the kLk (pronounced "klick"). -- Polarius, mgr. of Blitzkrieg DM 36
