The idea to change the name from "The Tower Guardian" was complete as The Icelord and
his Overlords suggested "Captain of the Guard" which was selected and used for the
Duelmaster.

The cities of Mordant and Zuwayza sent in the most Lord Protectors: 5
The Spymaster was Westwind

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Agh!  Zontani Sharp-eyes and the destruction of the city.  He get's tedious
about that.  Well, I can understand, actually.  It can be boring, being a spy
reporter.  Sure, fights are exciting, though less so if you're not personally
involved.  But after the hundredth or so fight in a day, well... you may not have
seen EVERYTHING, but you've seen a lot.  Things begin to blur.  I'd destroy cities,
too, if I thought I could get away with it.

     Party Animals avoided The Stormguards.  Does this mean that they aren't going to
be at the big Bash to Glug up whatever's available?  Their loss.
     Kookaburra got the most challenges.
     Nobody died.
     There were twenty-six fights (three of them involving standbys), of which twelve
were challenge matches (none of them involving standbys).

     KALEN (12-6418) (21-11-1,80) of STEEL THUNDER fought BRICK WALL (1-7478) (37-40-
0,72) of HOMICIDAL MANIACS.  KALEN was outlasted by BRICK WALL in a dull 14 minute
brutal competition.  Not a promising beginning to the day's session.
     PINE LEAF (24-4580) (31-45-0,60) of KRILL CAVALRY fought VAXTON (17-2689) (19-
28-0,57) of STEEL WOLVES.  PINE LEAF vanquished VAXTON in an action packed 1 minute
one-sided fray.  And how much action can you pack into a minute?  Lots.
     SCRAPPLE (97-1961) (8-7-3,29) of WHY SELL THIS? fought MEAN SPIRIT (101-5) (0-0-
0,70) of the Louts Local 101.  SCRAPPLE was demolished by MEAN SPIRIT in a 1 minute
one-sided melee.  How embarrassing... for Scrapple.
     BLOOD PIE (96-1918) (9-6-5,18) of WHY SELL THIS? fought HERMY (101-4) (0-0-0,50)
of the Louts Local 101.  BLOOD PIE was vanquished by HERMY in a 1 minute one-sided
fight.  And for Blood Pie.
     YOU'VE GOT SEATTLE (82-31563) (25-18-1,100) of IT'S THE SAME MOVIE! fought SLICK
STEPHAN (101-11) (0-0-0,150) of the Louts Local 101.  YOU'VE GOT SEATTLE overpowered
SLICK STEPHAN in a popular 1 minute one-sided duel.  But not for You've.  This wraps
up the standbys very quickly.  I understand they petitioned to be early on the
schedule in order to get away for some big "do" they're having on the other side of
town.
     MISCHIEVOUS IMP (1-7627) (28-15-3,99) of SWEORDMASTERS fought HARLEY THE CADAVER
(18-5366) (21-37-3,63) of STREET PIZZA.  MISCHIEVOUS IMP slimly won victory over
HARLEY THE CADAVER in a 4 minute bout.  Harley, you're letting down the side for us
Dead Guys.
     KONGOL (7-4524) (49-48-2,151) of BLADES OF ICE fought HEBEE (38-4359) (26-24-
0,127) of ALL FINESSE.  KONGOL overpowered HEBEE in an action packed 1 minute uneven
fray.  No finesse, just action.

     GAR & BRILL (38-4252) (53-73-0,153) of JUST BECAUSE fought LINI DAWNWIND (11-
5865) (29-29-1,139) of KRILL CAVALRY.  GAR & BRILL overpowered LINI DAWNWIND in an 
exciting 1 minute uneven fight.  And when, I ask you, are the public health
inspectors going to take notice of this filthy Gar, not to mention the Brill?
     OSCAR (50-3153) (36-10-0,161) of OPEN SESAME fought BUCK (1-2291) (59-121-0,150)
of MOSSRUNNERS.  OSCAR was savagely defeated by BUCK in a crowd pleasing 7 minute
bloody conflict.  Seven minutes?  Good endurance, Oscar.
     DESPERADO (77-2459) (34-18-2,191) of POSSE fought REDDI WHIP (97-1636) (23-15-
7,167) of KILLING ME SOFTER.  DESPERADO demolished REDDI WHIP in an exciting 1 minute
one-sided bout.  With an eggbeater.
     DRANDUS DE'VIR (71-4909) (27-17-0,188) of REALMS TUFTS fought MOOSE (56-3459)
(37-47-0,176) of REDHORSE.  DRANDUS DE'VIR devastated MOOSE in an exciting 1 minute 
one-sided brawl.  Moose doesn't handle excitement well.
     CAT IN THE HAT (24-3103) (40-16-1,196) of THE SEUSS HEUSS fought CROOKED HOOF
(56-3493) (51-40-0,206) of REDHORSE.  CAT IN THE HAT handily defeated CROOKED HOOF in
a 1 minute mismatched bout.  Pulled that one out of his hat, the Cat did.  A Hat
Trick.
     REDEMPTION (4-4868) (51-34-2,184) of BLADES OF MIST fought FEALOST (1-3916) (64-
87-2,210) of MOSSRUNNERS.  REDEMPTION viciously subdued FEALOST in a crowd pleasing 1
minute gruesome bout.  Thus redeeming himself, if not Fealost.

     The challenges:
     HUNZICKER BOWL (23-4182) (26-17-1,78) of SKI TAOS challenged SNIPPER (66-3518)
(26-21-0,91) of WHIPPERSNAPPERS.  Up 13.  HUNZICKER BOWL was demolished by SNIPPER in
a 1 minute mismatched Challenge match.  I understand that Snipper had the Bowl filled
with Chile con Carne.  Very hot stuff.
     ACE METRIC (47-3554) (17-8-0,90) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged BROKEN TOE (56-3683)
(45-66-1,90) of REDHORSE.  Straight across.  ACE METRIC devastated BROKEN TOE in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge conflict.  The Toe can't handle straight stuff.
     ADAM'S APPLE (52-3203) (20-9-0,77) of OTTO'S PARTS challenged FAT BACK (96-1610)
(20-18-4,82) of KILLING ME SOFTLY.  Up 5.  ADAM'S APPLE beat FAT BACK in an exciting
2 minute brutal Challenge fight.  Apple pie, ah....
     BULL DURHAM (5-4324) (20-9-0,69) of PARTY ANIMALS challenged MOUNTAIN GOAT (56-
3700) (45-62-3,70) of REDHORSE.  Up 1.  BULL DURHAM was defeated by MOUNTAIN GOAT in
an exciting 1 minute Challenge fight.  A bull loses to a goat?  Outrageous!
     VIKING RAIDER (54-2885) (10-2-1,42) of SPARF! challenged HEAD CHEESE (96-1920)
(11-4-3,44) of WHY SELL THIS?  Up 2.  VIKING RAIDER viciously subdued HEAD CHEESE in
a 3 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  It's a Viking thing; they collect heads, and
know what to do with them, I guess.
     CAULIFLOWER EARS (52-3424) (20-12-0,91) of OTTO'S PARTS challenged PORK ROLL
(97-1634) (19-19-5,93) of KILLING ME SOFTER.  Up 2.  CAULIFLOWER EARS was overcome by
PORK ROLL in a 2 minute Challenge melee.  Sauerkraut?

     BODDINGTON'S (21-5035) (20-9-0,108) of REAL BEER challenged HUMMINGBIRD (56-
3475) (44-52-0,160) of REDHORSE.  Up 52.  BODDINGTON'S overpowered HUMMINGBIRD in a
popular 1 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  Hang your head in shame, Hummingbird!
     BLACK JACK SHELACK (47-4850) (23-19-1,125) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged HELM
HAMMERHAND (31-5025) (41-30-0,147) of LORDS OF VALHALLA.  Up 22.  BLACK JACK SHELACK
defeated HELM HAMMERHAND in a 2 minute Challenge struggle.  And struggle was the word
for it.
     CEER (96-1537) (18-20-4,172) of THE BLOODGUARD 2 challenged AEDON (7-4295) (53-
48-1,172) of BLADES OF ICE.  Straight across.  CEER overpowered AEDON in a crowd
pleasing 4 minute mismatched Challenge match.  I'm not sure why the crowd was
pleased; they've been in a strange mood lately.
     SLIPPERY NIPPLE (59-2323) (25-6-1,162) of HANGOVERS challenged HALLIE O'DENE
(58-6018) (82-102-0,208) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES.  Up 46.  SLIPPERY NIPPLE lost to
HALLIE O'DENE in a crowd pleasing 2 minute Challenge brawl.  And this is surprising
how?
     POPE PAUL II (79-1317) (25-19-0,196) of CHAPEL ROCK challenged HELLACIOUS (1-
7541) (33-10-1,224) of MANNEQUIN'S BEST.  Up 28.  POPE PAUL II demolished HELLACIOUS
in a 2 minute gory one-sided Challenge melee.  Probably an exorcism.  Is that
permitted under the arena rules?  I'll have to look it up.
     TENACIOUS (7-5337) (51-25-1,195) of BATHTUB ARMADA challenged KOOKABURRA (33-
4151) (78-108-4,204) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.  Up 9.  TENACIOUS unbelievably bested
KOOKABURRA in a crowd pleasing 5 minute Challenge fight.  What's to doubt?  All good
cookies get eaten up.

     And for the title:  MOD COD (55-2638) (89-110-3,224) of RHYME TYME fought BECKY
(17-5782) (38-22-4,233) of BLADES OF STEEL.  MOD COD was overpowered by BECKY in a
popular 1 minute mismatched Title conflict.  Good!  Mod Cod was not representing us
well.  Do better, Becky.

THE DEAD                    W   L  K TEAM NAME              SLAIN BY              TURN

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Pine Leaf -- My thanks.  Salute. -- Unzoe the Shaman

Snipper -- I told him.  Not sure if he listened though. -- Jarl Forkbeard

     Told who?  Me?  Of course I never listen!  I'm famous for it.  That's one of the
     privileges of being dead. -- Olaf

Home Guard -- Turn #450 is rapidly approaching.  Shall we throw a rowdy party at The
Bash & Glug in celebration?  I propose that ALL managers listed run at least 5 Lord
Protectors that turn!  (if you have that many here of course.) Perhaps we can entice
the Bards to tell us great tales of Ferd the Tower!  It should be a cycle worthy of
all those who have dueled here for the past 450 turns!  Any interest? -- The Icelord

Crip -- I know you're busy but let's get a "Crip's Top 20 for all slow arenas"
published again! -- The Icelord

High Lord Bosk -- Tal, 1st Sword!  What transpires this day, Realm Restorer?  I would
indeed like to see Grand champions & below in ADM and Tower Guard & below in Primus
be allowed to fight in the Dark Arena.  It is something that could be tried for 12
months and see what everyone thinks.  I make The Sign of The Hammer AND of The Axe in
your honor! -- The Icelord

guardian -- I run The Stormguards, Overlords and The Stormlords. -- The Icelord

Home Guard -- As The Icelord states, turn #450 is rapidly approaching.  Those who
possess a pair will come forward and battle with a full stable.  I, for one, will run
'em all!  Rowdy parties are "my bag, baby"!  Bring it, if any of you take me down,
I'll be buying at the Bash & Glug!  Not expecting to spend much, though!  Guffawing
at you weaklings!  I say "come one, come all.  Bosk will take any and all of you down

like the slugs you are!  (btw, for you females, you can bring a "pair" as well!
Hardee har har!)  Bring the wench back to me now! -- High Lord Bosk, 1st Sword,
Council of Lords

The Icelord -- I, for one, appreciate your Homeguard Facts.  You have quite the staff
of historians!  Salute Warrior! -- High Lord Bosk

Cumhal Baiscne -- What a mouthful!  A creditable effort for one of your relative
inexperience.  I salute you. -- Hallie O'Dene

Kongol -- That gave me a chill. -- Lini Dawnwind

Jarl Forkbeard -- Did you know you have split ends there?  Gotta take care of that.
-- Snipper

Blood Pie -- Nasty fellow, aren't you? -- Pine Leaf

Vaxton -- It would appear that even a steel wolf cannot chip through a brick wall in
the time allowed.  But we are retiring the wall to some soothing architectural duty
where it will serve well, unless Swallowtail comes near it again. -- Hallie O'Dene

14 February 2007

  the Dark Arena until they are dead.
