                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     It was, like, Zontani with his sharp eyes which look, you know, totally strange.
The points.  Because they're sharp.  I bet it hurts, too.  Round is better.  Besides,
he is so, you know, prying and nosy with is "inside sources" and his "deep con caves"
and stuff.  Oh, well.  He just gets to go on the endless paths of Alastari, which can
be, you know, a bit of the same old same old sometimes.  But *I* get to go to Hawaii.
Sun and surf and sand, stuff like that.  Which is why I won't be here NEXT time, but
the time AFTER that, I'll tell you all about it.
     But right NOW, I'll tell you about today's fights, which isn't as much fun as
tropical beaches, but it's what we've got, right?
     Zontani says Blackest Pride is the team to beat, which is not what he MEANS, you
know.  Because Demons of Darkness isn't trying to beat them, they're trying not to
fight them at all.  That isn't the same thing, is it?
     And he says Elvis has enemies, which I think means lots of challenges, unless it
really means those space aliens.  They're trying to abduct him, you know.  And the
air force--that would be the Delarquan pegasus corpse, right?  They're helping the
aliens.  Which just SHOWS.

     So, here's some fights.
     U.S. STEEL (49-3369) (19-20-0,75) of THE BONDS fought WHITE TRASH (17-5485) (1-
2-0,10) of S.C.O.T.S.  U.S. STEEL overpowered WHITE TRASH in a 1 minute one-sided
bout.  I like white trash cans, is this the same thing?  Because if they're white,
you can tell when they're clean.
     BEER (71-3539) (26-35-0,83) of STUFF I BROUGHT fought WHITEWING (13-4346) (21-
36-0,74) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  BEER overpowered WHITEWING in a 1 minute uneven fight.
So maybe he shouldn't drink?
     FLESH RIPPER (74-3375) (12-6-1,50) of LUROCIANS XI fought LUCIFREYJA (103-40)
(19-21-1,90) of Other People.  FLESH RIPPER savagely defeated LUCIFREYJA in a popular
3 minute gruesome fight.  And Luci wasn't happy about it, but that's the way it IS
for standbys sometimes.
     PLACES THE LOTION... (98-909) (7-4-5,30) of ARCANE BEACH DAY fought LOPING WOLF
(56-1796) (61-107-0,86) of REDHORSE.  PLACES THE LOTION... was handily defeated by
LOPING WOLF in a 1 minute contest.  And the lotion was in the wrong place afterward,
too.  That's bad.  The lotion is important.
     LOKI (71-3798) (18-17-1,91) of ARCTIC GUARDS fought LULU (32-3523) (24-30-1,57)
of FISHERMAN'S WHARF.  LOKI overpowered LULU in a 1 minute uneven fray.  Aren't you
GLAD she didn't get to use her lucky skillet?  It's plus four.
     RED BARON (33-1092) (33-36-3,141) of LUROCIANS II fought HELYSE (103-36) (45-35-
5,165) of Other People.  RED BARON defeated HELYSE in an exciting 1 minute duel.  But
he's taking her out for pizza afterward, so it's okay.
     TIGRESS (13-4471) (30-28-0,115) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought BLUE (33-5776) (27-17-
1,120) of BLADES OF GRASS.  TIGRESS was devastated by BLUE in a 1 minute one-sided
contest.  Blue is TOTALLY not her color, you know.
     TESEN (12-4211) (45-51-1,168) of DEMONS OF DARKNESS fought LORD FIREFLASH (33-
2966) (31-33-0,112) of LUROCIANS II.  TESEN beat LORD FIREFLASH in a crowd pleasing 1
minute fight.  So does this mean that the Demons of Darkness think the Lurocians are
the team to beat?
     SUE (22-5828) (26-26-1,178) of WOMEN OF REALITY fought REDFOX (13-4197) (52-72-
0,120) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  SUE was subdued by REDFOX in an exciting 2 minute bout.  I
saw a fox once, but it was more of a brown color.
     SMUG BUG (55-2900) (41-76-0,155) of RHYME TYME fought WRATH OF ONE (82-11628)
(15-3-1,138) of LUROCIANS XII.  SMUG BUG was devastated by WRATH OF ONE in a 1 minute
one-sided fight.  Which is a lot of wrath.
     HERMES (58-6016) (22-10-0,183) of MYTHICAL fought LORD REDMOND (12-4109) (34-24-
1,165) of LUROCIANS IV.  HERMES handily defeated LORD REDMOND in a crowd pleasing 1
minute mismatched bout.  With his hands.  That's how you do handy defeating.  If it's
just plain defeating, you have to use your feet.
     LUMP O'GORE (13-1212) (99-90-5,205) of ILLFANG PACT fought HELYSE (103-36) (45-
35-5,165) of Other People.  LUMP O'GORE bested HELYSE in a 1 minute duel.  Twice in
one day.  That's totally the pits.
     LORD LIGHTSPEED (33-2928) (38-30-3,196) of LUROCIANS II fought FRAIL WHALE (55-
1968) (112-163-3,195) of RHYME TYME.  LORD LIGHTSPEED was handily defeated by FRAIL
WHALE in a 1 minute uneven fight.  Did you know that a whale's bones are sort of
soft, or at least they bend?  Like stays.  For corsets.  Like that, not that corsets
bend a lot, but at least it isn't CEMENT.
     PANIC ATTACK (9-3624) (32-23-1,196) of DSM4 fought SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543)
(65-100-2,168) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY.  PANIC ATTACK demolished SUPERIOR FORCES in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided brawl.  So do we change the name to Second-Class
Forces?
     PARANOIA (9-4557) (29-7-1,246) of DSM4 fought FUNNY BUNNY (55-1862) (92-130-
1,189) of RHYME TYME.  PARANOIA demolished FUNNY BUNNY in a crowd pleasing 2 minute
mismatched competition.  And afterward, Bunny wouldn't go to the arena Infirmary,
because the orderlies were out to GET him, and he just hid in the corners and stuff.
     HOUSE MOUSE (55-221) (118-183-2,226) of RHYME TYME fought JULIUS (64-3641) (74-
89-2,182) of UNDER DURESS.  HOUSE MOUSE overpowered JULIUS in a 1 minute one-sided
fight.  So, is Julius an elephant?  Because who else could a mouse overcome?
     TYVIN (60-5382) (55-47-1,215) of DEMONS OF DARKNESS 2 fought ROYLAND (56-3380)
(72-50-0,190) of REDHORSE.  TYVIN overpowered ROYLAND in a 1 minute uneven match.
Good!

     Challenge matches next, with sulfur.  Or is it phosphorous?  I never studied
chemistry much.  It was always more fun to go to the beach.
     BINDI (29-4454) (18-9-2,98) of CROC FILES challenged KELOS (55-30) (62-92-3,137)
of ROCANIS RIDERS.  Up 39.  BINDI was vanquished by KELOS in a 1 minute one-sided
Challenge duel.  You have to watch OUT for these caravan raiders, Bindi.  They like
crocodile boots and stuff.
     LOONY LATEKNIGHT (28-3529) (26-9-2,126) of IDIOTIC ICCERS challenged MILA (55-
29) (62-97-0,173) of ROCANIS RIDERS.  Up a lot.  47?  Something like that.  LOONY
LATEKNIGHT was vanquished by MILA in a popular 1 minute uneven Challenge duel.  So if
you have a caravan, Loony, don't let Mila see it!
     DOC HOLIDAY (12-2956) (19-17-1,101) of THE LAWMEN challenged IDIOTIC INDIGO (28-
3528) (27-8-0,144) of IDIOTIC ICCERS.  Up 43.  DOC HOLIDAY overpowered IDIOTIC INDIGO
in a 2 minute uneven Challenge melee.  And pulled out his teeth, too.
     SAMPSA (31-4233) (27-20-2,180) of SOL INVICTUS challenged TRYURLUCK (61-1029)
(59-55-1,181) of BLOOD KNIGHTS.  Up 1.  SAMPSA was beaten by TRYURLUCK in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute Challenge brawl.  Guess it was somebody else's luck.  Whatever.
     KREWKUT SAUSAGE (65-6327) (23-24-0,206) of LINCOLNSHIRE challenged ELVIS (7-612)
(38-29-0,225) of THE ROCKERS.  Up 19.  KREWKUT SAUSAGE viciously subdued ELVIS in a
popular 2 minute bloody Challenge duel.  Gosh, Elvis sausages!  That's, you know, not
very nice!  Even if the hound dog likes them.
     WYATT EARP (12-2168) (30-13-1,188) of THE LAWMEN challenged LADY EMILY (33-6626)
(26-17-1,183) of LUROCIANS II.  Down 5.  WYATT EARP was devastated by LADY EMILY in a
2 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Does this mean Wyatt is, like, a lady's man?
     MIMR (82-3783) (61-42-2,187) of SOL  INVICTUS challenged GROGGY DOGGY (55-223)
(126-180-0,192) of RHYME TYME.  Up 5.  MIMR demolished GROGGY DOGGY in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute uneven Challenge fight.  And the dog didn't even wake UP.
     NEBUCHADNEZZAR (22-5821) (30-23-0,202) of BLADES OF WONDER challenged HEL (82-
14331) (40-40-0,196) of ARCTIC GUARDS.  Down 6.  NEBUCHADNEZZAR was vanquished by HEL
in a 1 minute uneven Challenge battle.  See?  Long names are a handicap.  Because of
taking so long to say them or to hear someone saying, you know, "start fighting," or
whatever.  But short names are easy!

     And for being Lord Marshall:  WOUNDWORT (12-4228) (61-37-0,301) of DARKMOON TV
challenged SEVERUS SNAPE (18-7146) (41-25-0,233) of HOUSE SLYTHERIN.  Down some, but
if it's for Lord Marshall, that's different, right?  WOUNDWORT was bested by SEVERUS
SNAPE in a 4 minute Challenge Title fight.  So congratulations to Mr. Snape for being
Lord Marshall now.

                                       Debby T.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Loony Lateknight -- (sigh)  I've pulled too many of those lately. -- Redfox

     So push instead.

Venric -- Nobody told me about golems, especially golems who are also dark demons.  I
have no idea how to handle such as you.  Could you give me a hint? -- Tigress
P.S.  The standard claw-claw-bite doesn't seem to be working.

Places The Lotion -- Place it somewhere else next time, hmm? -- U.S. Steel

Flesh Ripper -- Let's pass on that and just pretend you did. -- Whitewing

Beer -- My, you're a big one, aren't you? -- Lulu

Bobby Bigfoot -- Sorry not to have produced a more interesting set of personals this
time, but time is, in fact, the issue--Gencon.  Still, we do what we can.  See you
next turn. -- Jorja

Hermes -- Well, that was pointless.  If you're going to TV challenge an old fart, you
should pick one that knows some of those fancy skills to teach you.  Me, I'm just a
brawler.  I've taken too many beer bottles on the head to pay attention to all those
finicky little technicalities. -- Mila

All -- My presidential fast food joint, the Pit, isn't quite ready to open.  But I
can reveal that there will be iguana tortillas, fried pifflefish with muskgourd dip,
lodgepoles (a cheese-and-honey filled dessert) and other classic Rocani favorites.
Two weeks.  Fourteen days.  The street behind the arena.  Be there. -- Mila

     Or, of course, not.

Woundwort -- The Pit will be offering a Lord Marshall's special dinner:  Beef and
barley pie topped with peppered horse cheese, tender reed heart salad, and your
choice of eight kinds of beer, all you can drink. -- Mila

Sue -- An advanced expert rating, at your age!  I'm not as impressed as I might be,
unless it's your last skill area that's laggin' behind the others.  Still an' all, ye
challenged, and that's somethin'.  Shows you're tryin' at least. -- Lump o' Gore
P.S.  Lose the helm.  It isn't as fearsome as ye think.

Cookie -- How do you fit into a team named "Croc Files"?  Shouldn't you be called
"Scaly" or "Toothy"?  Anyway I noticed that you learned too many skills.  I have it
on good authority that if you learn more than two skills in one fight, they won't
stick.  You'll forget them by next fortnight. -- Loping Wolf

     How come nobody else knows about this?

Whitewing -- Well, it would have been dishonorable if I had challenged you, but I
didn't.  You fought bravely and with some competence, is all I meant.  Sheesh! --
Loping Wolf

Sampsa -- Hmm.  Sorry to put a little chink in your record.  You're fast, and you're
probably pretty good.  Bad matchup for you though. -- Royland

Tigress -- I am not!  She doesn't have me pegged at all.  I don't gossip!  I think
you should give me another chance. -- Royland

     You always say that!

I fought the Xhugha Kargarit.  I learned how to spell it thinking I would have to
write it a personal ad, and then they told me it was an arena stand-in.  Phooey. --
Kelos
P.S.  Somebody should tell the Commission the Xhugha Kargarit has maxed out in
skills.
P.P.S.  The crowd wasn't laughing at me.  That Kargarit is something of a comedian.

     Remember, I won't be here next time, but you can use it to practice writing
     personals so as to have LOTS for when I get back.  I want LOTS of personals to
     come back to! -- Debby T.

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet

                                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!
