                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Lord and Lady Protectors, good morning!

     Our strong-but-silent Tower Guardian was challenged today.  Needless to say, he
did not avoid.  He met Crimson Blush with stoic indifference, and methodically
defeated the doughty Vengeance Seeker.  CRIMSON BLUSH (7-5351) (47-29-1,322) of
VENGEANCE SEEKERS challenged LIMPY TWO-SCREWS (42-4048) (65-51-2,316) of COLOR ME
SUAVE.  CRIMSON BLUSH was devastated by LIMPY TWO-SCREWS in a 3 minute Challenge
Title fight.
     No one avoided anyone.  It seems that the population of the Isle has undergone a
sociological change:  Avoiding is considered passe'.  And I don't mean just the
gladiatorial community.  In the last five years, traffic accidents have increased
four hundred percent!  Men often have chance encounters with their ex-wives.  Tax
collectors can find anybody!  It's a sorry state of affairs.  The general attitude
seems to be:  "I'm going the direction I'm going, and if someone wants to find me,
well...they know where."  I applaud the courage...or fatalism...of this attitude, but
personally, I still avoid certain people.  Like Perdina, the Goddess of Lost Causes.
Perdina has it in for me.  Or did, and I don't think it's wise to remind her of my
existence.
     Of course, our Overall Popularity Leader is still the lovely Kaiden.  I think we
are all delighted to have her hold this title as long as she stays in Talahya arena.
KAIDEN (35-3108) (125-134-2,187) of VIOLENT FEMS fought TY DEL-WAVE (29-3539) (51-55-
0,188) of FORCE OF NATURE.  KAIDEN was beaten by TY DEL-WAVE in an action packed 3
minute bout.
     This week's favorite is Falcon.  FALCON (82-11173) (35-29-1,188) of TWELFTH
CIRCLE challenged CHASM OF IGNORANCE (4-4186) (43-36-0,199) of UTOPIA RELIGIOSO.
FALCON was unbelievably bested by CHASM OF IGNORANCE in a 5 minute Challenge duel.  I
heard that Falcon got a sympathy vote because some people were certain Chasm of
Ignorance cheated.  Poison on the blade.  Personally, I don't think CoI is smart
enough.
     That wasn't our longest fight by any means.  There was another five minute
fight, two that lasted into the ninth minute, and one that lasted twelve minutes.
Not very impressive, really, from a defensive-warrior standpoint.
     Here, then, is our longest fight:  STEINBACH (30-4473) (35-55-0,84) of THE A'S
-- LOSERS II fought BOB LE CANADIEN (52-3632) (24-12-0,69) of BLOOD AND GUTS!.
STEINBACH was viciously subdued by BOB LE CANADIEN in a 12 minute battle.  Did these
two warriors at least make the "least popular" list?  They did not.  Go figure.
     Here is our least popular warrior:  Palantiri-etc. PALANTIRIATHALASA (46-3808)
(31-73-2,75) of RUBY DRAGONS fought DELAWARE RUN (42-4400) (19-9-4,88) of COLOR ME
SUAVE.  PALANTIRIATHALASA was vanquished by DELAWARE RUN in a 1 minute mismatched
bout.  I could make a joke about how he was voted least popular because no one could
spell his name.  But in truth...this happens to newcomers sometimes.  Hang in there,
Pally.  It'll get better.
     I'm sorry to say there were two deaths in the arena this cycle!
     * SANDMAN (74-2896) (21-30-2,105) of DARKLINGS fought MADONNA (60-7780) (29-17-
2,133) of THINGS ILL NEVER GET.  SANDMAN was assassinated by MADONNA in a 1 minute
uneven duel.  I have sent Sandman a jug of freshly squeezed orange juice and a bag of
chocolate covered espresso beans.  Good for overcoming that resurrection hangover.
     * PUNH JENTLY (16-5485) (23-33-0,53) of PUNNY AMINALS fought JACKHAMMER (11-
6613) (17-8-5,64) of NEVERWAKE.  PUNH JENTLY was slaughtered by JACKHAMMER in a 1
minute uneven contest.  I think death by jackhammer has to be one of the more painful
ways to go!  I've sent Punh Jently a skilled masseuse, and a harpist who will
accompany the massage with soothing music.
     And that, my friends, is this cycle's spyreport.  I hope you've enjoyed it as
much as I have!  Until next fortnight--cheerio!

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

2301 -- I consider it highly significant, in an obscure and probably dangerously
esoteric fashion, that you are divisible into three superficially equal parts.  I see
the signs of a hidden conspiracy in this. -- N.D. Grasse
P.S.  Would you believe that I'm lulling you into complacency by losing?

Sunlight Splatrz -- Oh, hard luck!  I don't know whether you're a golem incompletely
converted to humanity, or a poor neutered fool, but either way it can't be easy to
fit in as such.  On the whole, I'd advise you to go with the golem bit and forget
trying to appear human.  There would be, I should think, a lot of satisfaction in
being a simple (or complex) prism, spreading light and color into unlikely places. --
Oran Ji

Panther -- I warned Jorja that this wasn't going to work.  That even the meanest
cactus is helpless against the soulless tread of the tank.  But she said I should
give it a try anyway.  I just hope my insurance is up for this, or else you'll find a
lot of little chollas sprouting all around here.  That's one thing I will say for my
family, we can be trashed, but it's darned hard to eliminate us completely. -- O
Puncha, the Bad Cactus

Redolent -- A crude effort, but probably the best you could do. -- Peach Nutt

Wolfbrother -- Do the wolves know there's a golem going around claiming kinship with
them?  If I were a wolf, I might take this as an insult. -- Punh Jently
P.S.  I believe I will recommend that the Wolves of the Isle hire my cousin's
detective agency to look into this matter.

Galen -- The tang is part of it.  He'll smell of oranges for weeks afterward, that
scent is very adhesive, and while the smell of oranges is, in general, a Good Thing,
by the time they start to become...orange wine and orange vinegar and whatnot, it's a
bit overpowering. -- Oran Ji

     True.  You know I often send oranges, or orange juice, to people who've just
     been resurrected.  But never orange wine or *shudder* orange vinegar. -- Galen

Halo -- Damn.  I was ahead, I had you desperate--and then you come back with that.
NICE desperation stragegy. -- Rem

Wall of Glass -- Bad style matchup--for me.  You paid someone to match you up with
me, didn't you? -- Sleepwalker

Everstorm -- Remind your manager to start you on a new training regime. -- Gazelle

Eternal D.J. -- Thank you!  That was a beneficial fight for both of us! -- Sandman

22 December 2007
All -- Just that tired old reminder to check your e-mail settings when you send ads
and such.  Please send stuff as plain text rather than as HTML or formatted text.
HAL, being the simple golem it is, doesn't know what to do with anything other than
plain text.  Note, this also means it doesn't know what to do with "smart" or "curly"
quotes, whether single or double, em-dashes (rendered here as two hyphens "--") or
everyone's favourite ellipsis (..., aka three dots). -- A public self-service
announcement from your Ed.

15 January 2008
                                 Order of Lost Souls

     Where there is a beginning, there is an end.  Where there is a whole, there is a
part.  Where there is light, there is dark.  All these are found to be true and along
with the most important, when something is lost it can always be found.
     Many a person has walked this land in one form or another.  Some truly believe
that here is there and there is here but who really knows?  Among the peoples of this
great land many have felt lost in time and in place.  Some have gone as far as to be
lost of soul....
     Although most are thought to have been born into this world in a mortal way, no
one can be sure.  Life is something they have in a way but a torturous joke to them
in all others.  They live in a sense as they are here and now and having mind and
knowledge.  They are flesh and blood of one sort of another.  They cast a shadow as
all things living do.  Blood courses through their veins.
     These beings have become wraiths drifting here and there, knowing that they
truly belong nowhere.  Searching for that one thing that they seem to be missing or
the one thing in them that puts them beyond others.  These people have become masters
of many things as time seems to have no hold.  For not even time can find those that
are truly lost.  Many of these beings have drifted toward the gladiatorial games.  In
the blood and chaos of the arenas something holds them like no other.  It's the loss
of something they have never had or something they had so long ago it seems to have
never been.  LIFE.
     A few of the more shall we say "human" of these beings have settled into many
arenas around the land.  The loss of life and the crazed emotions of the arenas
giving them glimpses of things they longed for but seemed incapable of attaining.
     A number of these lost ones saw in each other something that might be able to
help the other.  They spent many a day traveling to and fro, for what is time to one
who it doesn't touch.  The more time they spent together the more they seemed to
change.  No one noticed the change in the others but each recognized it in himself.
Years passed and the changes stopped.  Each had been changed in different ways but
all felt more whole.  A discussion ensued between them.  They came to a realization
that in each other they had found parts of themselves that had been missing.  Then
came the next thought.  If they could find more of like minded lost ones they might
eventually find what they always wanted, their true selves.
     The group settled down to think things through.  They finally came up with an
idea they all could accept.  They would form an organization that through their
arenas through out the land they would seek out other lost ones.  If they were of
like mind they would be invited to join the group and seek that special something
they all desired.
     This was how it began and how it still is.  The Order of Lost Souls was formed
and the search began.  The original members numbered six.  They were Baphomet,
Blackstorm, Hammer, JGW, Reaper and Wretch.  These members of the Order spread their
gladiator stables through out the realm seeking others like them.  Through blood and
death they lived through others.  One day hoping to live for themselves.  For as they
all know what is lost must eventually be found....
