                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Good morning, my friends!

     HOT HAZEL (98-608) (33-31-4,275) of JUNKYARD WARS TV challenged the puissant
lunger, STONE KILLER (21-5245) (48-13-1,285) of NASTY MOB.  HOT HAZEL was devastated
by STONE KILLER in a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.  And so, Stone Killer remains
our Tower Guardian and he still hasn't written a column.  It is rather distressing.
He's a dynamic fighter, looks like someone who would have something interesting to
say.  We all want to hear his thoughts.
     Top Waste MARCINKO (97-961) (40-22-5,293) of ROGUE WARRIOR TV challenged THE
BEAST (3-5547) (61-78-0,242) of FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT.  MARCINKO savagely defeated THE
BEAST in an exciting 18 minute gory Challenge melee.  This was the longest fight of
the cycle, but as you can see, no one was bored.  The Beast was our most challenged
warrior.
     Center for Olds was avoided by Solaran Berserk.  Well done.
     Unfortunately a couple of warriors died this cycle.  The first was the stand-in
who goes by the arena name of Fratsfa Slave (commemorating those sad days when slaves
were forced to fight in the arenas, at least in the Federation).  CHEESE STEAK (82-
20346) (16-9-0,84) of PHILLY fought FRATSFA SLAVE (100-7) (0-0-0,0) of ARENA STAND-
INS.  CHEESE STEAK butchered FRATSFA SLAVE in an action packed 1 minute one-sided
fray.  Actually Fratsfa Slave is one of those self-righteous anti-Delarquan
activists.  I have of course sent the little blond git a basket of chocolate and
fresh blueberries to ease the resurrection hangover.  I don't play favorites.  As for
our other death, it was suffered by a serious warrior.  PELICAN (41-3949) (16-11-
0,40) of BIRDS challenged CHERRY 2000 (31-4994) (18-9-0,67) of NUMBERS GAME.  PELICAN
was slaughtered by CHERRY 2000 in a popular 1 minute one-sided Challenge bout.
Pelican assured me, while nibbling his chocolate, that death is no less bitter if you
were the one who issued the challenge.
     FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE (98-809) (28-21-4,209) of COLLEGE RADIO challenged top
Striker HO-CHAN THE AXE (75-670) (115-158-2,190) of SAND DANCERS.  FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE
was defeated by HO-CHAN THE AXE in a 3 minute Challenge conflict.  The poor CR
warrior made the mistake of showing up for the fight in a simple knitted shirt and a
pair of practice leggings.  You can't beat Ho-Chan dressed like that.  Our famous
striker was wearing some sort of electric blue kichai with, I think, orange dots on
it.  The pants were some kind of swirling blue and orange pattern.  Black boots with
a glittering fringe.  It was one of his wilder outfits and the clashing colors
literally danced in front of one's eyes, leaving a trail of color as our top Striker
leaped around the arena.  I wouldn't say it was up to Ho-Chan's standard of taste,
but it was an effective exercise in combat couture.  Fountains kept shaking his head,
passing his hand in front of his eyes as though to clear his vision, and more than
once missed his target.  The crowd loved it.  As usual, Ho-Chan is our overall
popularity leader.
     This week's favorite is Nick Nitro.  NICK NITRO (60-4767) (37-43-0,191) of
ARADI'S DEAD challenged W.T. POOH (33-4430) (76-56-0,192) of SNOTZI'S II.  NICK NITRO
was unbelievably bested by W.T. POOH in a 6 minute Challenge fight.
     Our two least popular warriors this cycle made a poor attempt at a scumfest.
Only thirteen minutes?  Come on!  SURFER ROSA (97-1192) (10-1-3,34) of COLLEGE RADIO
challenged MAGENTA (3-5711) (47-77-0,51) of TRANSVESTITES.  SURFER ROSA savagely
defeated MAGENTA in a tiresome 13 minute bloody Challenge fray.  Magenta enjoys the
dubious honor of being the very least liked warrior of the cycle.
     That's about it, and here's some advice.  Every few years, go through your
belongings and throw out or give away some stuff.  Only keep what is useful and what
you love.  Discard or repair anything broken.  Don't leave it all until you have to
move and don't want to take the time to sort.
     With best wishes for the coming cycle,

                                      Galen Shanmarrik of the Valamantis Shanmarriks

     My fellow duelists I come before you bearing a sad and unfortunate message.
Several months ago our group, the Vendetta Cartel, had lost contact with one of our
friends.  Since he was in contact or correspondence on an almost daily basis there
was concern amongst us.  With some research two of our members discovered why contact
was lost with him.
     On November 10, 2004, Richard Hammes was taken from us in a senseless act of
violence during a robbery attempt at a friend's store where he sometimes worked.  He
was watching the store so his friend could go home to tend to his son who had taken
ill.  You may have known Rich as Abarsis, The Slaughter Priest ; richh10 on the RT;
or gameogre on the Duel2 messageboard.  You may not have known that he spent 13 years
serving the United States in the Navy.
     Rich dearly loved this game and all it encompassed.  He may not have been the
best or most experienced manager but he loved to interact with others and was quick
to offer advice whenever anyone asked for help.  He was always kind and gracious and
tried to strengthen our game, often by helping new players feel welcome or give them
a chance to compete.  With his prolific posting I know that I am simply speaking the
obvious about what he did for our game.  Many, like me, were drawn to him, perhaps
for his kind nature or his sense of humor, and it appears he lived his life as he
played this game.  Always willing to help or do right by others.
     I realize that he had many friends outside the VC so I will include the link to
the news story in case any of his other friends would like to know more of what
happened.  We're all dealt a hand in life but it's not the strength of the hand
you're dealt but rather how you play it that really matters.  Rich played his hand to
the very best of his human ability and for this I admire him greatly.  I know we all
choose to like or dislike managers but I believe deep down we are all good and
decent, in this game, and will drop party (alliance) lines and will show the proper
respect.
     http://www.signonsandiego.com/uniontrib/20041112/news_7m12clerk.html
     Rich was taken from us all to soon and with so much left to offer the community
around him.  He spoke of a desire to run a contest on the Duel2 site which I hope to
uphold in his name.  Some of the people I have spoken with think it would be a nice
gesture to do one final good act in Rich's name, though it could never match what he
would've done within his community, for his community of San Diego.  I hope that with
this contest we might raise a little money to donate to an appropriate charity within
San Diego in his name.
     In conclusion I send a message to Rich:
     "Rich, though I'm sure you gathered this I never really told you how much I
admired you and what a friend I considered you.  I thank you for being my voice of
reason and always reminding me of why we both loved this game so much!  You have
taught me one final valuable lesson in learning more of you.  There are things far
more valuable in life than material possessions such as character and kindness.  That
nothing going on in your life means that you cannot find a way to be kind and giving
to others.  We always spoke of meeting someday and until we finally do know that you
will live on in with me and the rest of your brothers and sisters in the Cartel:
Master Darque, Kat, Bum, Sensei Jan, Maximillian, Hammer, Fizban, Firehawk, Phat
Phat.  You increased all of our enjoyment of this game, you were a true ambassador of
Duelmasters, and the game will not be quite the same without you.  A farewell battle
cry from the ZalCon:  'Confusion to our enemies'.  May your soul rest in peace, my
friend."
     Should anyone wish to correspond about Rich feel free to contact myself, or
anyone else within the Vendetta Cartel.

     Be it known throughout Alastari that Hammer is no longer a member of the
Vendetta Cartel alliance.
     A difference of opinion with another highly respected member of the VC due to my
recent vocal actions in DM 47 can only be resolved by my resignation from the VC as
of January 29, 2005.
     I leave of my own accord, in good standing with all members and with no hard
feelings towards anyone in the Vendetta Cartel.
     There was a time when I felt that my membership in the VC made the alliance
stronger.  I know that my resignation today makes the Vendetta Cartel a stronger
alliance with my absence. -- Hammer

On behalf of the ILLUMINATI Confederation of Alliances (The kLk, CHAOS, Inc. and The
Company of Brothers) I would like to express our sympathies concerning the tragic
loss of Rich Hammes to both the DM community and to the real life world.  Surely our
loss has been Heaven's gain. -- Talon Darkhart, deeply sorrowful

     The winter tourney brought a lot of people to the Isle who didn't appear there 
normally.  This included Commission employees.  Half a dozen arenamasters regarded 
each other warily in the mirror behind the bar at the Pig in a Haystack.  The Pig was 
obscure and mediocre, drawing few gladiators, which is what they had all been looking 
for.  They saw gladiators every day.  Most arenamaster were convinced that this was 
some kind of punishment.
     You could always pick out the arenamasters in a crowd.  There were superficial 
differences:  One of these had clearly Adantri features, one wore an eye-patch, two 
were female.  But there were, in significant ways, alike.  The same size, the same 
hair-trigger alertness, the same deadliness.
     The one-eyed man broke the ice, raising his beer mug in salute.  "I'm Zrof One-
Eye from Zukal.  Sugar of Arvat--"  One of the women bowed slightly.  "I know Sugar.  
The rest of you...?"
     The Adantri matched his salute.  "Dernal of Dayla Kiv."
     "Daiyla Kiv?  Ah...."
     "No, without the 'I' in it.  These damned bureaucrats can't spell, and they 
thought adding an unnecessary vowel was exotic."  Disgust dripped from his voice.
     "Tell me about it!" another man growled in agreement.  "Khagal of Niatoli, and 
what they do to the spelling of THAT simple word--!"
     "I thought Daiyla, I mean Dayla Kiv had a different name right now," 
Arenamistress Sugar said.  "The arena, at least, because of a contest?"
     "Chavez Ravine."  Dernal's tone was the one that substituted in polite company 
for spitting on the floor.
     Zrof blinked, taken aback by the bitterness.  He wouldn't have minded a contest 
in Zukal, and damn what they called the place.  "It's only temporary, though."
     "Temporary, shmiperary," another man muttered.  He seemed well into his drinking, 
although, like all arenamasters, he carried his liquor well.  "They do it all the time 
in Aradi.  No reshpect.  Go around changing thish, changing that.  I wish I could 
change shome thingsh."  He signalled the bartender for a refill.
     The second woman put her hand over his mug.  "You've had enough, Harkon.  Try the 
coffee, instead."
     "You should be mad, too, Ripplesh," Harkon said.  "They're going to do shtuff 
like that in Jahnsh, aren't they?"
     Ripples Dorrigan shrugged.  All the men paused, some with glasses half raised, to 
watch.  "It's the way things are," she said.  "Not much we can do about it."
     "You know," Khagal of Niatoli said, "maybe we could make a few changes.  Fix the 
spelling of Arena 33, for one, change a few standby titles--"
     "The Commission hates changes."  Dernal of Dayla Kiv topped up his glass and 
drained it gloomily.
     "Yes, but if we disguise it," Sugar of Arvat said, excited, "make it... maybe a 
general Name-Change-O-Rama!  Then we could slip OUR changes through and no one would 
notice or mind."

     By popular demand, we are holding a Name-Change-o-Rama during the month of March.
If you wish to change the name of your warriors or teams, please contact RSI Customer 
Service.  The charge for a name change is $1, unless you're in DOOMCorps, in which 
case you take your chances.  (Just kidding, guys! *snicker*)
