                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Hey you guys,

     Here's how I got roped into this:  Debby Tonte was going on vacation, see?
Surf, sun...so what do those Sheila say?  "Hit the road, Keel Woodhaven.  Home Guard
needs a spyreport."  "That's great," I say, "why don't ya pull one out of yer--"  And
then she points her wand at me and, I think tries to turn me into something, but
magic never works right on me and instead it turns me all...nice, for a minute.
(gag!)  So I change what I was going to say, "--list of old discarded boyfriends.
Sure, I'll be glad ta do that for ya, Sheels."
     As soon as it wore off I mounted up to go on vacation, too (surf and sun
wouldn't be so bad, at that), but damn it, she cast a spell on my horse and Old Brown
brought me right here.  So what the hell.  Actually, it was kinda fun to watch you
guys whacking each other on the head for a couple hours.
     Second Bananas were avoided by Tuft Tuggers.  Good going there, Banana boys.
     Well, it looks like your Captain of the Guard didn't get any challenges, or if
he did, he successfully avoided those teams.  NUTCRACKER (38-4380) (36-25-2,267) of
ALL FINESSE fought R IS FOR REPUGNANT (99-1155) (29-15-4,259) of GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.
NUTCRACKER savagely defeated R IS FOR REPUGNANT in a 3 minute Title match.  I suspect
Nut didn't challenge because his only option was down.  Nut is one of them Aimed Blow
warriors so you can't really like him, but he fought a good fight against a far less
pudly warrior who I didn't like, either.  So, good job.
     Old Fart was most challenged.  PIT FIGHTER (51-4297) (17-17-1,42) of RONIN
challenged OLD FART (1-1723) (16-9-0,63) of DEATH'S DOOR.  PIT FIGHTER demolished OLD
FART in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge competition.  You know, looking at his
record, Old Fart isn't an old fart at all.  And he's your top Parry-Lunger, which can
be a dangerous style if it's done right.  That was a good challenge and a good win.
Nice job, Pit Fighter.
     Nobody died.  That's good.  You don't want to get rezzed by Sheila, really you
don't.
     What happened to Sparf!?  I like their name, it's one of my favorite cusswords
spelled backwards.  Last turn there were a whole bunch of teams in the Sparf guild
and the guild was active.  This turn, there's just Sparf and it's inactive.  What the
fraps?  Come back!
     Heh...there were only twenty-six fights altogether, which means that we're
really missing Sparf.  I guess it wouldn't hurt to at least mention the stats for
each fight.
     REDEMPTION (4-4868) (36-29-2,196) of BLADES OF MIST fought TICKLES (9-3486) (66-
92-1,151) of MY PETS.  REDEMPTION handily defeated TICKLES in an action packed 1
minute one-sided conflict.  Tickles is our top basher.  There aren't too many bashers
out there these days, are there?
     EXILE (7-4618) (35-33-1,191) of BLADES OF ICE fought KATRINA (101-9) (0-0-0,170)
of EX-SPYREPORTERS.  EXILE was overpowered by KATRINA in an action packed 1 minute
uneven struggle.  She always was a devious wench...I don't think that was really her,
though.  She got herself a stand-in.  Probably a retired Home Guardian with 300
fights.  So don't feel bad, Exile.
     BECKY (17-5782) (26-14-3,155) of BLADES OF STEEL fought MOD COD (55-2638) (77-
102-3,163) of RHYME TYME.  BECKY overpowered MOD COD in a 1 minute mismatched brawl.
Mod Cod is the overall popularity leader, but you wouldn't know it from this fight.
He was coasting.
     DESPERADO (77-2459) (33-16-2,180) of POSSE fought CROOKED HOOF (56-3493) (40-31-
0,149) of REDHORSE.  DESPERADO devastated CROOKED HOOF in a 1 minute one-sided fight.
     AEDON (7-4295) (44-37-1,130) of BLADES OF ICE fought KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (66-
100-4,125) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.  AEDON was savagely defeated by KOOKABURRA in an
exciting 3 minute brutal bout.
     SPATHA (31-4996) (33-20-2,106) of SOL INVICTUS fought KONGOL (7-4524) (40-37-
2,147) of BLADES OF ICE.  SPATHA narrowly defeated KONGOL in a crowd pleasing 2
minute bloody conflict.
     BUCK (1-2291) (49-111-0,129) of MOSSRUNNERS fought HELM HAMMERHAND (31-5025)
(32-19-0,146) of LORDS OF VALHALLA.  BUCK luckily beat HELM HAMMERHAND in a 2 minute
fight.
     MOOSE (56-3459) (28-36-0,122) of REDHORSE fought BRICK WALL (1-7478) (32-25-
0,100) of HOMICIDAL MANIACS.  MOOSE was unbelievably bested by BRICK WALL in a
popular 4 minute gruesome match.  And Moose was this turn's favorite warrior,
according to the spectators.  They got no taste.  Watching somebody hack at a brick
wall until they fall down isn't something that gets ME all a-flutter.
     REDDI WHIP (97-1636) (11-7-6,94) of KILLING ME SOFTER fought DRANDUS DE'VIR (71-
4909) (16-9-0,80) of REALMS TUFTS.  REDDI WHIP was vanquished by DRANDUS DE'VIR in a
popular 2 minute mismatched fray.
     PORK ROLL (97-1634) (7-11-5,41) of KILLING ME SOFTER fought BROKEN TOE (56-3683)
(34-57-1,78) of REDHORSE.  PORK ROLL was overpowered by BROKEN TOE in a 1 minute
uneven fight.
     YOU'VE GOT SEATTLE (82-31563) (15-8-1,54) of IT'S THE SAME MOVIE! fought 
WRETCHEDMISERY (33-7255) (22-15-0,63) of CHAOTICDISORDER.   YOU'VE GOT SEATTLE
overpowered WRETCHEDMISERY in a popular 1 minute uneven fight.
     SOUL SCOURGE (59-2589) (21-3-0,86) of VILE REAVERS fought CAT IN THE HAT (24-
3103) (26-10-1,90) of THE SEUSS HEUSS.  SOUL SCOURGE savagely defeated CAT IN THE HAT
in an action packed 4 minute match.
     MOUNTAIN GOAT (56-3700) (36-51-3,54) of REDHORSE fought PINE LEAF (24-4580) (27-
29-0,61) of KRILL CAVALRY.  MOUNTAIN GOAT vanquished PINE LEAF in a 1 minute one-
sided fray.
     GAR & BRILL (38-4252) (40-66-0,64) of JUST BECAUSE fought LINI DAWNWIND (11-
5865) (20-18-1,34) of KRILL CAVALRY.  GAR & BRILL overcame LINI DAWNWIND in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute bout.
     Then there were the challenge matches, which are always a little more
interesting.  You guys who fought in the random matches, you should challenge.  If
you put some thought into it, you'll win more.  Some were up-challenges and some were
down-challenges.  It's easy math, you can do it yourself if you want to know.
     ZLATINA ANGUELOVA (11-4856) (40-35-1,218) of TUFT TUGGERS challenged HALLIE
O'DENE (58-6018) (70-94-0,218) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES.  ZLATINA ANGUELOVA bested HALLIE
O'DENE in a crowd pleasing 1 minute Challenge fight.  Zlatina is your top Wall of
Steel warrior, which is a good style, plus I just like to see a couple of babes
fighting.  I kept hoping they would throw down their weapons and start wrestling, but
no luck this time.
     JOHN LONGSHORE (11-4197) (36-44-0,185) of TUFT TUGGERS challenged AGLIBOL (12-
5848) (31-20-0,196) of DARKMOON.  JOHN LONGSHORE vanquished AGLIBOL in an exciting 1
minute uneven Challenge battle.  It's good to know John Longshore is male and not a
golem.  I mean, good to know in kind of a not-my-personal-business way, but he did
mention it in the ads.
     BRANFORD HAWKE (11-5077) (32-31-0,164) of TUFT TUGGERS challenged MAD DOC
WILLIAMS (77-2432) (35-17-0,191) of POSSE.  BRANFORD HAWKE savagely defeated MAD DOC
WILLIAMS in a 5 minute Challenge duel.
     KALIDOR THE BOLD (11-6441) (24-8-0,153) of TUFT TUGGERS challenged BRIARTHORN
(12-5671) (32-27-1,171) of DARKMOON.  KALIDOR THE BOLD savagely defeated BRIARTHORN
in an exciting 3 minute Challenge fight.
     KRAMER (47-5191) (21-8-0,151) of SECOND BANANAS challenged RAUNI (31-5035) (29-
15-0,176) of SOL INVICTUS.  KRAMER devastated RAUNI in a crowd pleasing 4 minute
brutal one-sided Challenge duel.
     TENACIOUS (7-5337) (38-18-1,132) of BATHTUB ARMADA challenged FEALOST (1-3916)
(53-78-1,142) of MOSSRUNNERS.  TENACIOUS was viciously subdued by FEALOST in a 4
minute Challenge competition.
     SEX CAMEL (82-25548) (20-24-4,128) of SWEET NOTHINGS challenged QUEEN AMAZONIA
(12-4796) (42-57-1,126) of DARKMOON.  SEX CAMEL vanquished QUEEN AMAZONIA in an
action packed 1 minute uneven Challenge duel.
     HELLACIOUS (1-7541) (20-3-1,95) of MANNEQUIN'S BEST challenged HUMMINGBIRD (56-
3475) (35-41-0,103) of REDHORSE.  HELLACIOUS was narrowly defeated by HUMMINGBIRD in
a 3 minute Challenge duel.  This was another babe-on-babe fight.  Good stuff, good
stuff.
     HEBEE (38-4359) (16-14-0,56) of ALL FINESSE challenged FAT BACK (96-1610) (9-9-
4,53) of KILLING ME SOFTLY.  HEBEE overpowered FAT BACK in a 1 minute uneven
Challenge match.
     CEER (96-1537) (11-7-4,68) of THE BLOODGUARD 2 challenged DEMONICHELLION (33-
7038) (21-18-2,74) of CHAOTICDISORDER.  CEER was overpowered by DEMONICHELLION in a 1
minute one-sided Challenge fight.
     Well, that's pretty much it.  I hope Deb is back next time, but if not, I don't
mind you guys if you don't mind me.  It's been...albendranius.  (snort!)

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Aglibol -- Oooo!!! Ouch! You came knocking on a big downchallenge, and then I hit you
with the big hit at center ice. They carried you from the ice to the hospital, and by
the time you woke up, you found your clothes were out of style! Tell Bobby Bigfoot
downchallenging only irks Tankesh. Do it again, regardless of whether you won or not,
and we're going to do more than lay you out on the ice...more like six feet under! --
Zlatina

Mod Cod -- Well, hmm...I feel like I'm getting younger the way I've been performing
lately. Not only did I win against such a superiorly experienced warrior, I got a
skill I was looking for. Thank you. -- Dr. John Longshore, PhD. Geology.

Redemtion -- I'm not sure if you'll still be here by the time I come looking for it
against you.... -- Branford (slow to develop)

Buck -- You've had some good fights against my other team mates, but that was VERY
one sided. Step it up! -- Kalidor

Pine Leaf -- And the point of your name is? -- Drandus

Ed. (or whoever was commenting last turn) -- Err...forgot my glasses?  What makes
Batavia particularly old for you to note that when I called him a 'young man' you
said I needed glasses? -- Dr. Longshore

     Wasn't me. I always sign my comments! -- Ed.

Ah...I didn't jinx the team!  Followed up with a 4-1...very nice.  Unless that IS
being jinxed, but I don't see how I could always go 5-0.  Hmm...that WOULD be nice
wouldn't it, I'll certainly go for it! -- Tankesh

Fealost -- That is a Commission clerical error that had never been fixed. They
thought I was a sexless golem. When I told them I was male, they left the 'it'
categorization. Pretty thick headed of them, eh? -- John Longshore

Desperado -- Did I mean to do what? How could I do something, kidding or otherwise,
when you whack me three times before I can blink? Gods, you're fast! -- Crooked Hoof

Kalidor the Bold -- Sorry I wasn't paying that much attention to our fight. Phetmolge
told me I should be concentrating on picking up skills. So I kept looking for them,
but I didn't see any. If there were any in the arena, I guess they were buried in the
sand. But the Commission guy said you got three of them. Did they stick to your
shoes, or what? I'm gonna put glue on my shoes next time. -- Buck

Kookaburra -- Thank you for the skills. I guess my shoes were sticky today. --
Hummingbird

Reddi Whip -- Ha! You're too soft. -- Fealost
P.S. Get a gender.

Theatre Bum -- Thanks for showing me that parry skill. I have trouble learning those.
-- Moose

Hellacious -- That wasn't surprising but I thought it was uncalled-for.  Old farts
come to Home Guard so they can win once in a while. -- Broken Toe

Broken Toe -- Oh yeah, you had to say that, didn't you? -- Mountain Goat

Old Fart -- Good fight. -- Mountain Goat

Queen Amazonia -- I think the Brick Wall was impressed with your efforts, but perhaps
not pleased, as who would be? Something about "being knocked out of plumb." But you
did well. -- Hallie O'Dene

Hebee -- Well, that was fast. -- Lini Dawnwind
P.S. What else is there to say about it?

Mad Doc Williams -- A classic style match, was it not? -- Hallie O'Dene

Drandus De'vir -- I dislike fighting such small people. You're all so aggressive! --
Pine Leaf

Segallion -- Not here. -- Hallie O'Dene

3 May 2006
All -- I've seen what's on the forum.  So I'm prey, am I, Max.  You and all your
devious buddies will become my prey, even those I thought okay.  I don't have to
explain anything I do, much like yourselves so bring it on.  Feel free to come over
to 31 for a thrashing.  Oh, by the way, I am also in a new alliance.  They tend to
share my sentiments about the VC.  If they follow me or not, we will see; I'm not at
liberty to talk for them.  The VC may be on their last stand!!!! -- Blackstorm

The 2006 Mordanti Alliance Olympics are off to a grand start!  With seventeen teams
declared, running under eight different flags (not to mention six additional non-
Olympic teams present), it is looking to be as tough as any previous Olympiad, if not
more!  Olympians petitioned the Commission to make an allowance for late entries, and
the Commission agreed, and will allow new entrants to partake, as long as they are
active by Round 3 (T546, due May 29th).  So if you wish to enter, please email your
intentions to amicitia@gwi.net with team name, manager name, and affiliation
(alliance name or independent), or show up in Mordant (DM-1) on, or before, May 29th
and place your declarations in the newsletter!

stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!
