                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  Or maybe not, they do say memory is the
first thing to go.  Or maybe it's the second, I forget.  The younger ones may call me
Olaf Modeen, so long as they're polite about it.  I return to HOME GUARD once again!
What's with JOHN WAYNE HAMMER?  He actually beat AVERAGE GUYS' AARON, and walked away
with 32 more points from the fight.  Nobody ever said JW Hammer was average.  Laughs
were big at CHILDREN OF LLYR while they watched OWAIN HARLSON clobber PUMPING ON
STEELE.  Something of a surprise.  He (presumably Pumping) lost 28 points and got
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure HOME GUARD is excited about
CAT IN THE HAT, the new Captain of the Guard from THE SEUSS HEUSS.  (remember?)  But
when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up
fighting!  Get a job in a sideshow.
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  At least, they will if they
get paid for it.  How well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  I
was a host in myself.  Don't fall out of practive, SWEORDMASTERS!  Management must be
dealin', as the boys at AVERAGE GUYS ain't reelin'!  SWEORDMASTERS' mad!  Don't know
why.
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  I didn't even know we
HAD a time limit.  Do you want the fighters to walk away, or not?  Is it my
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  Maybe some flaw in the
Agelessness Spell?  To die so young, so gloriously... but not on the Isle.  No deaths
here.
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

     We had fourteen fights, three standbys, no challenges.  That's what, twenty-
seven active gladiators?  We can do better than that.  Get it in gear, you managers!

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Cuba -- Good fight. -- Math op Owain
P.S.  But Owain (no kin of mine, mere chance, that name) was correct about the smoke
of burning leaves.  The scent of it clings to you and is less pleasant than many
leaf-smokes are.  You might want to check your grounds for noxious weeds before
burning again.

Vanish -- Good fight. -- Tavis Cadfalson
P.S.  I did try to help you up, but you'd, er, "vanished" before I got my hand there.
Good trick.

Aaron -- Good fight. -- Owain Harlson
P.S.  You are too modest.

Katrina -- Good fight. -- Cadal
P.S.  You're a hard woman.

Mischievous Imp -- Good fight. -- Huw ap Huw
P.S.  I have been asked, in a manner of speaking, to pass to you a message which you
in turn are asked to pass to a colleague by the name of "Swallowtail."  Something
about a wall that is "dry and lonely as a ruin without a soft and enlightening
touch."

                                 THE STOMPING GROUNDS

The new all-basher arena will be in Seam, DM 20.  Only new teams (0FE) may 
participate.  The only rule is that all of your warriors must be bashers.

The first turn of the contest will be due on Monday, April 28.  It will be a slow 
turn-around arena.  If you wish to enter a team, please submit your new team and first 
turn strategies before then.  Only one team per manager, please.  

This arena will stay open indefinitely, providing there is interest (i.e., this is not 
a contest that runs a set number of turns, although there are prizes scheduled after 
the first 15 rounds).  For more information, see details in the first newsletter or on 
the forums.

  Zeb Karan looked around the table at the rest of Dwes Eg's staff.  Arenamasters,

standby and Dark Arena warriors, stewards and infirmarians, even the maintenance crew.  
There was wine and beer on the side-table, even sandwiches, but no one was partaking.
      "Stop looking like your dog died," Lew Voth said.  He had once been the 
arenamaster of Sentern and had taken his turns overseeing the fights in Dwes Eg.  "We 
all knew this day would come.  When are they closing us down?"
      "Immediately after the tourney, according to the information I was given."
      "Short notice," Jame Rinvar, another arenamaster commented.
      "No offense intended, these things just creep up on people.  Tourneys make it 
worse, I suppose, all the new teams being entered."  Zeb grimaced.  "Some of the file 
cabinets have exploded from over-stuffing, you know, and it takes so long to run 
through all the registered gladiators to find those who are planning to fight on any 
given day that the day is OVER by the time we're ready to start."
      "Which is why they closed down Sentern, Cimmeriac, and Firehold," Lew pointed 
out.  "This is the same thing all over again."
      "Cycles," Jame said.  "Things happen, and then later they happen again.  We live 
with it.  And Dwes Eg did last for, what, eight and a half years before it reached the 
explosion point.  That isn't bad.  That's forever, speaking practically."
      "Eight or nine years is not forever--"
      "The only thing that's real is today, and maybe, up to a point, tomorrow.  I 
don't see a problem with this.  What are the new parameters, Zeb?"
      "Dwes Eg remains open, existing teams can run and can recruit new members.  BUT, 
no new teams will be accepted.  New teams will go into a new arena, DM 84, running its 
first turn on the seventh of May.  A regular two-week cycle."
      "So Dwes Eg isn't actually being closed, just closed to new teams.  Okay.  This 
works," Jame said again.  "Number 84... does this mean it'll be out at that Blackstone 
place?  Rotten weather half the year, but I suppose you could say that about any site.  
What about regional allegiance?"
      "None specified in the data I received.  Probably a personal-choice situation," 
Zeb said.
      "Transfers?" Lew asked.
      "I don't know about transfers IN," Zeb said, "but I'd guess yes, they would be 
allowed.  No transfers OUT, though.  None out of DM 82, for that matter.  Once you're 
in 82 or 84, the only way out is death or graduation."
      "That fairly describes most arenas," Jame said.  "Anyone who takes up the 
gladiatorial life has already accepted that."
