                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     You know, Novgorodny Vir is an ass.  Maybe not as big an ass as Zontani, but 
still, big enough.  I was going to give you chapter and verse on this, but I got 
distracted by other stuff, and now I'm out of time, so you'll just have to take the 
bare statement and believe it.

     Joka Masher! was avoided by Darkmoon, which actually has no resemblence to a 
pup, wherever he might put his tail.  Usually in my face, but that's irrelevant.  Not 
that irrelevance would stop me, if I could think of something to say about it.
     Tickles got the most challenges.  Why?
     Nobody died.
     There were thirty-four fights, eight of them challenge matches, but no tv 
challenges.  There are days like this.  Often.
     No standbys fought!  Amazing.
     The longest fight was six minutes.  Piffling.

And here are the high points:
     The longest fight:  BUCK (1-2291) (41-87-0,164) of MOSSRUNNERS fought RUTHLESS 
(15-4591) (22-12-0,107) of TRIPLE CROWN.  BUCK was viciously subdued by RUTHLESS in a 
popular 6 minute gruesome conflict.  I would have expected a fine figure of a horse 
like Ruthless to be able to trample Buck faster, but what do I know, eh?  I'm no 
horse!

The challenges:
     BRIARTHORN (12-5671) (17-10-1,69) of DARKMOON challenged KOOKABURRA (33-4151) 
(56-78-2,90) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.  Up 21.  BRIARTHORN was vanquished by KOOKABURRA 
in a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  Some people shouldn't eat cookies.  At least, 
they shouldn't try to eat the whole box at once.
     TYMARIS RAVENSWOOD (53-5637) (22-26-0,46) of PUERCO'S PINATA challenged SKI MASK 
(58-5869) (40-73-0,51) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES.  Up 5.  TYMARIS RAVENSWOOD was overcome 
by SKI MASK in a 1 minute Challenge melee.  I shudder to think what this lunatic Duck 
will do with his victory.  And his opponent.
     VALLISNERIA (30-3226) (19-15-1,72) of THE GREENHOUSE challenged FRED (65-5333) 
(24-10-0,80) of MYSTERY MACHINE.  Up 8.  VALLISNERIA devastated FRED in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute mismatched Challenge match.  Now Fred has green stuff all over, 
looks like some kind of algae.  Peculiar stuff, doesn't seem to brush off.  I think 
he's in trouble.
     CIARAN (1-7176) (19-12-1,73) of MANNEQUIN'S BEST challenged CARRIE NATION (64-
4054) (49-85-0,75) of REFORMERS.  Up 2.  CIARAN was bested by CARRIE NATION in an 
action packed 2 minute gory Challenge brawl.  And no doubt our local obsessive will 
have comments to make on this.  But at least she's not a brick wall.
     FIENDISH GLEE (46-1553) (18-10-5,106) of CLEVER LINGO challenged QUEEN AMAZONIA 
(12-4796) (31-38-1,130) of DARKMOON.  Up 27.  FIENDISH GLEE overpowered QUEEN 
AMAZONIA in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  It was the insane laughter that 
really got to me.
     NUTMEG (7-5167) (29-20-1,171) of SUGAR AND SPICE challenged TICKLES (9-3486) 
(53-73-1,179) of MY PETS.  Up 8.  NUTMEG was vanquished by TICKLES in a 1 minute 
mismatched Challenge brawl.  It would appear that Tickles-the-Most-Challenged is not 
a pushover.
     ELENA (63-2356) (25-9-0,213) of SITTIN' ON ACES challenged MOD COD (55-2638) 
(63-84-3,233) of RHYME TYME.  Up 20.  ELENA bested MOD COD in a crowd pleasing 2 
minute gruesome Challenge fight.  And we're always glad to see a fossil cracked.  
Good work, Elena.

For the title, not using a broom:
     NED THE JANITOR (66-2973) (31-29-0,215) of ANDORIAN UNIVERSITY challenged DITCH 
RAT (82-15360) (31-33-5,255) of VERMIN!.  Up 40.  NED THE JANITOR narrowly defeated 
DITCH RAT in a 4 minute Challenge Title melee.  Amazing and heartening, because 
really, who wants a rat for a Captain of the Guard?

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Tank-boy -- Welcome back to the Guard.  The mushroom farm is fine; in fact, it is 
right down the road a bit from where you probably sat and wrote your ads in Aruak.  I 
KNOW you manage from there--I see you at the Bulldog every other Friday night! -- 
Generalissimo Puerco
P.S. Your boss knows where the farm is.  Get her to bring you along some time.

Carrie Nation -- To save you some trouble: yes, I do enjoy beer, and sometimes I even 
over-indulge a bit.  But what business of yours is that? -- Tymaris
P.S. Lighten up, this is Home Guard.

Olaf -- You're daft.  I left the broom in Tarrgir.  I'm hot property here on this 
Isle.  They give me all the cloves I can smoke, and new-fangled magic potions too!  
And they resurrect me no matter how many times I keel over from lung failure!  I had 
to wait awhile, but I think I'm finally seeing some point to being alive. -- Ned the 
(ex-)Janitor

     There's a point to being alive?  Coulda fooled me!

Tankesh -- Greetings!  Actually, I don't think Chimlevtal NEEDS more teams, but I 
would sure LIKE to see more to make it even better.  I admit I have a fondness for 
Andoria.  My first team started in Seam in 1985.  I still run 1 Lord Protector from 
that original roll-up sheet in Primus.  I was active in the earliest days in Andorak. 
In the late 80s/early 90s I became a Freeblader.  I have heard many good things about 
Aruak City and will concede that it is the best 2-week Andorian arena on Ghea.  I 
used to be pretty active in Homeguard.  I've been busy in Crysalis, but may return 
here this fall.  Good hunting. -- The Icelord, 1st Mage, The Council of Lords

Tymaris Ravenswood -- If you'd clean the ravens out of that wood, you would find your 
home much quieter, and you wouldn't have to drink strong spirits in order to get your 
sleep at night.  This would undoubtedly improve your performance in the arena. -- 
Carrie Nation

Vallisneria -- (sneezing copiously)  You did dad od purpose! -- Ski Mask, Founder and 
President, Ducks with Swords
P.S.  Foul mammal!

Elena -- Well!  They TOLD me you elves were kinky, but I didn't realize you carried 
into the arena, too! -- Delice the Red

Spazz -- That has got to be some kind of record for lucky spasmodic hits.  Ouch. -- 
Hallie O'Dene

Tankesh -- Fine.  It'll be a relief not to be talking to our echo. -- Hallie O'Dene
P.S.  I think Ho-Chan is still the manager of record for us.

Hummingbird -- Of course I'm a Duck!  How else could I be the president and founder 
of Ducks with Swords? -- Ski Mask

Ruthless -- Ruthless, I'll show you ruthless!  Nobody hits back like a hockey player! 
-- Zlatina

Hummingbird -- So embarassing to be poked to death by a small zippy avian. -- Dr. 
Longshore

Alaric -- I fight weird, don't I? -- Anijia

Broken Toe -- It's hard to break your toe if you've knocked me down! -- Segallion

Nutcracker -- I suppose I can take your name for the 'crack' job I did on you? -- 
Avalyne, trying to be humorous

Are you people talking yet? -- Tankesh

     Only a few.  Resurrections take time.

1 March 2005
                                    The Contract
                         [as retold by Hammer the WordSmith]
     What had begun as a contract for swords and armor between a well known name in
the DM community and the former VC Captain/WordSmith and WeaponSmith of the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe was destined to impact and altar the landscape of the dueling
community for years to come.
     The following is but a condensed retelling of history in the making.

    Hammer continued sipping his tankard of Elven Tonic as the mysterious hooded
figure quietly seated himself across the table from the Veteran Manager whose back
was against the wall; allowing for a subtle, but effective surveillance of the dimly
lit tavern.
     Recent events in both Illis and North Fork/SCOMSS Swamp Arena had stunned the DM
managerial world with the announcement that Hammer had resigned from his position as
a well respected member of the Vendetta Cartel Alliance.
     Those managers and associates closest to Hammer were shocked and dismayed that
there seemed to be NO Rational Explanation for Hammer making such a seemingly
irrational, hasty and extremely illogical decision; by what seemed to be a spur of
the moment reaction following the Declaration of War by Hammer in the DM 47 P-ads.
     This is what stirred the mysterious hooded figure to seek Hammer with a request
that would change the managerial course of both men; ultimately Rocking the
Managerial World of Alastari as a result of the forthcoming decisions reached by the
two Veterans.
     Time passed swiftly as both Veteran Managers discussed how the landscape of the
DM game on the sands of Alastari had changed over the years both in Basic and Tourney
play; producing a new breed of managers who would of necessity band together in an
alliance with a common goal; waging war against antagonists while improving the
managerial skills of each participating member in their glorious quest for DM
excellence.
     Hammer listened intently as his unexpected guest inquired about the situation in
North Fork/SCOMSS Swamp Arena; revealing his desire to participate in the upcoming
Turf War 4 contest in DM 47 with an alliance that would accept him on a more
permanent basis other than for just fighting together as a TW4 alliance to win fame
and Gift Certs.
     Here was a Veteran Manager, seeking the advice of Hammer regarding an alliance
to join on a permanent basis; plus extending a sword arm of friendship and requesting
that Hammer join him as an alliance mate with those who would welcome their
membership.
     The Iron in the Words of Hammer had produced this opportunity as a result of the
recent conflicts witnessed first hand by the manager seated across the table from
Hammer.  This Veteran Manager had been secretly searching and scouting around
Alastari for someone worth his mettle to fight alongside; someone who would know
where to find the perfect gang of rebels who were unafraid of waging war against
anyone.
     Hammer knew exactly where to look and in a matter of days the two newcomers were
welcomed into the ranks of a group of managers who received them as war waging equals
in an alliance that had joined a Confederation of Alliances for the TW4 contest.
     Fighting under the banner of The Illuminati Confederation of Alliances alongside
members of Chaos Inc, kLk and The Company of Brothers during the TW4 was more than
either of the two Veteran Managers had envisioned a few months ago.
     Hammer was now entering a new journey with a new attitude.
     Perhaps you readers may have noticed that new attitude by now since this
announcement by Hammer is uncharacteristically Exclamation Point Free.
     Except for the famous quote by Hammer at the end of this announcement.
     Now that Hammer and the Mysterious Hooded Figure have agreed to join forces with
an alliance whose members have welcomed them enthusiastically; let those who desire
to be antagonistic be forewarned as to the identities of these newly welcomed wagers
of war:

Tripwire
kLk Bringer of Pain

Hammer
kLk WordSmith and WeaponSmith
Minister of War
