                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Well, this is a fine how-de-do!  Thirty fights, which is respectable in these 
degenerate days, and only one stable talking?  Okay, maybe that's a bad way to put 
it, because if I was walking down the street and a stable started talking to me, I'd 
worry.  But still, how'm I going to give you clever backchat and sparkling repartee 
if you don't say anything?
     Oh, you don't WANT all that clever stuff?  Just the dry old bones?  Well, okay, 
I can give you that, too.  Easier.  Just switch off the old brain and see what the 
Zontani golem has to say....

     I pass on the self-touting, and go straight to fights it deems worth of mention:

"LONE WOLF caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested KAIDEN and was awarded 32 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, LONE WOLF put down KAIDEN, causing her to lose 30 points of 
recognition in the process."  Actually, nobody at the Commission was paying any 
attention, just the golems.  Hey, we can't watch ALL the fights, that's why we HAVE 
golems.
     KAIDEN (35-3108) (91-88-2,190) of VIOLENT FEMS fought LONE WOLF (31-162) (29-29-
1,151) of AVENGERS.  KAIDEN was overpowered by LONE WOLF in a 1 minute uneven match.

"This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail MOD COD, Duelmaster of 
HOME GUARD!"  Yes, and there's a fine how-de-do, too, a FISH (in tall boots and a 
miniskirt!) for Captain of the Guard?  Ye gods.

"Mighty among the names of thy guilds is BLADES OF STEEL, a guild shunned and avoided 
by many in the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of GERFEL'S FRIENDS are 
catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the 
avoids."  If anybody's telling jokes at the challenging board, I want to hear 'em.  
Anything to liven up the day.

"Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  TICKLES take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in HOME GUARD."  Which is Zontani's 
obscure way of saying that Tickles got the most challenges.  I think.
     EXILE (7-4618) (28-24-1,174) of BLADES OF ICE challenged TICKLES (9-3486) (50-
71-1,175) of MY PETS.  Up 1.  EXILE was viciously subdued by TICKLES in a 2 minute 
gory Challenge match.

"At the gambling halls I have started to bet money on PINK BEAR.  She has got the 
courage it takes.  Witness her challenge this turn against FEAR!  To be sure the 
battle was a losing one.  But I like to think PINK BEAR at least gave FEAR a run for 
her money."  And as to Zontani putting money down on ANY warrior, well, the Gaming 
Commission wants to ask him a few questions.
     PINK BEAR (36-5883) (31-13-1,101) of LITTLE GIRLS LIKE... challenged FEAR (82-
10416) (22-38-1,132) of 4-LETTER ANXIETY.  Up 31.  PINK BEAR was devastated by FEAR 
in a 1 minute uneven Challenge brawl.

"For some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how 
LEFTISTS BLOW of THE CONFUSED challenged down 39 points to SKI MASK.  Few would not 
have guessed the outcome of the bout as SKI MASK was beat by LEFTISTS BLOW."  I never 
found a victory to be particularly empty.  It sure beats being dead.
     LEFTISTS BLOW (3-6356) (20-3-2,76) of THE CONFUSED challenged SKI MASK (58-5869) 
(39-69-0,37) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES.  Down 39.  LEFTISTS BLOW handily defeated SKI MASK 
in a 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.

"As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of its heart.  True, BAD 
ACID?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of GAR & BRILL?  All the city knows the 
duel went in favor of BAD ACID."  Actually, most of the city is probably cheering, if 
they've noticed.  Gar & Brill was notorious for spreading food poisoning.
     BAD ACID (21-5700) (19-7-0,84) of COSMIC FREAK OUT challenged GAR & BRILL (38-
4252) (26-43-0,59) of JUST BECAUSE.  Down 25.  BAD ACID savagely slew GAR & BRILL in 
a action packed 1 minute gory Challenge duel.

"A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that RAISON 
D'ETRE posted a challenge against the more highly recognized MOD COD.  The results, 
you ask?  Well, the firebrand RAISON D'ETRE was overcame by MOD COD."  Why this 
should raise eyebrows is beyond me, but then, there's nothing new in that.
     RAISON D'ETRE (7-5311) (28-17-3,200) of BATHTUB ARMADA challenged MOD COD (55-
2638) (59-83-2,225) of RHYME TYME.  Up 25.  RAISON D'ETRE was devastated by MOD COD 
in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge Title duel.

     Which is the sum total of what Zontani found worthy of comment.

Toofless -- Well, you were a disappointment.  I was hoping for a real troll, you
know, a big, tough, scaly sort of monster.  And I got a neutered cat instead?  With
no teeth, even.  Disappointing. -- Hallie O'Dene

Satoshi Kuno -- I expected you to speak kung-fu or something during the fight.  Maybe
little monkey-noises?  I mean, the "strong and silent type" never appealed to me. --
Delice the Red

Putz'n Along -- Drunk again, I see!  When will you learn?  You cannot "putz along" in
the arena with a belly full of beer. -- Carrie Nation

Infamous!  I was THROWN OUT of the Bash and Glug simply for being a Duck!  I will
SUE. -- Ski Mask, Founder and President of Persecuted Ducks with Swords

Battle Royal 4
     The Battle Royal arena contests are one of the purest tests of manager skill
available. The rules are simple.  The scoring is simple.  The updates are live.  If
you would like to participate, simply get a team ready in Talcama in the next month
and announce in the personals that you're in.  The prize is bragging rights and
having your name along side previous winners (Doc Steele, Manray Frothingslosh, and
Manager).  It is a brutal contest, but it is a lot of fun!
     Basic rules:  No avoiding other contest teams.  Score = Wins + Kills - Losses.
Only fights against other BR teams count.  First team to 25 wins!
     BR4 begins in Talcama (DM 18) on turn 502, due on Jan 29, 2005.
     Visit http://www.geocities.com/assurnasir/br4 for more information.

                                FACE-TO-FACE XXXIV

     Our next Winter Face-to-Face will be held on Martin Luther King weekend, Friday 
through Sunday, 14-16 January 2005, at the Embassy Suites in Tempe, Arizona (4400 S 
Rural Rd--this is the same hotel as last year).  Room rates are $139.00 per night, 
1-4 occupancy, which includes breakfast.  The rooms are blocked.  The reservations 
number is 480-897-7444; tell them you're with the "Reality Simulations Face to Face 
Convention" block.  Our room block will be released in mid-December, so please make 
sure you reserve your room before then! 
     Room rates include a full cooked-to-order breakfast and a complimentary two-hour 
manager's reception.  There is a free shuttle to the airport, as well as free parking.  
The hotel is located down the freeway in Tempe.  All rooms have high speed internet 
(for an extra charge).  There is a fitness center, jacuzzi, and pool, and of course a 
bar and Mexican restaurant inside the hotel.  And there's Denny's right across the 
street.  Look for transportation info in the tournament information sheet.
     The tournament information sheet/strategy sheet should be out sometime in late 
November/early December. 
     If you haven't been to a Face-to-Face before, you're overdue.  If you have, 
you'll be back.  Don't miss this one, it'll be a blast!  See you there!
