                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Olaf Modeen said he came out of retirement to give us a spy report!  Who said he 
could retire?  He doesn't even NEED to retire, because he's dead already!  Besides, 
I, me, Debby Tonte, I'm going to give you a spy report, and it will be BETTER than 
his!
     Did you know that dead people don't get tans?  They don't even go to the beaches 
much.  And their drinks never have umbrellas in them.  It just SHOWS.

     Anyway, here's a spy report.
     The Lord Marshall got four challenges, which might be the most anybody got.  
Four is good.  A square number.  Lots of people, well, at least two, because of maybe 
double challenges, want to be Lord Marshall.  Royland didn't, you can tell, because 
he didn't do a column and I bet he didn't even NOTICE he was Lord Marshall.  That's 
just LIKE him.
     The Lawmen were avoided by Sol Invictus.  I don't know why.  Nobody tells me 
stuff like that.
     We had twenty-nine fights, which is just, you know, totally depressing.  We used 
to have fifty or sixty!  The only good thing is that Andorak and Darkholm aren't 
doing any better, and that isn't really GOOD, just not so depressing.  I mean because 
it isn't just us.  It's everybody.  Why are most of the warriors haning out in 
Talahya where they don't get good spy reports?  I mean, really REALLY good spy 
reports like mine!  Because I have, you know, practice.  And I care about you.
     Where was I?  Oh, right, twelve challenge matches--but more than twelve 
challenges, because we know of three that didn't go through right off.  Two TV and 
the rest radio.
     Three standbys fought, and this time they were students sent over from the 
College of Mimes.  You didn't know we had a college for mimes, did you?  But we have 
to.  Because of all those people who know mimes who fight better than some other 
gladiator, you know?  Those mimes have to learn somewhere, and it's HERE on the Isle, 
at the College of Mimes.
     And I think there's a note here somewhere, uh... somewhere here, about somebody 
died this time.  Well, it'll show up.  There's always someone who notices those 
things.

     So here's the fights.
     WHITEWING (13-4346) (22-38-0,69) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought ROSELLA (103-39) (26-
25-0,100) of College of Mimes.  WHITEWING overpowered ROSELLA in a 1 minute one-sided 
match.  Even though she couldn't beat Whitewing, Rosella fights better than lots of 
not-graduated warriors, so she's probably good enough, right?
     LOPING WOLF (56-1796) (63-108-0,69) of REDHORSE fought U.S. STEEL (49-3369) (21-
21-0,75) of THE BONDS.  LOPING WOLF overpowered U.S. STEEL in an action packed 1 
minute uneven fight.  He, I mean Loping, just pretended US Steel was a caravan and 
raided him.
     REDFOX (13-4197) (53-74-0,122) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought HELYSE (103-36) (45-35-
5,165) of College of Mimes.  REDFOX lost to HELYSE in a 2 minute bout.  Helyse is one 
of the BETTER mimes, she's an instructor!  And, you know, lots of people don't expect 
Redfox to win anyway.
     KELOS (55-30) (65-92-3,180) of ROCANIS RIDERS fought SUNGOD DESIGNED ME (43-
4270) (25-5-0,149) of WENSINWASIN.  KELOS overpowered SUNGOD DESIGNED ME in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute one-sided fray.  Oooo, another caravan!  That is so mean of Kelos!  
I mean, Sungod designed this warrior, and you're not supposed to beat him!  It's, 
like, some kind of something or other.  Not a rule, exactly.  I'll think of the word 
any time now.
     NEBUCHADNEZZAR (22-5821) (30-26-0,168) of BLADES OF WONDER fought ARAC IRONFIST 
(67-1944) (22-9-0,131) of RAZOR GRACE.  NEBUCHADNEZZAR vanquished ARAC IRONFIST in an 
action packed 1 minute uneven bout.  It's the zzeez.  Double Z.  Very, you know, 
powerful, a double zzee.
     WRATH OF ONE (82-11628) (16-5-1,163) of LUROCIANS XII fought SMUG BUG (55-2900) 
(42-78-0,135) of RHYME TYME.  WRATH OF ONE assassinated SMUG BUG in a 1 minute one-
sided bout.  Aha!  I knew somebody got killed.  The Bug!  This is SOOO good!  I like 
it.  That Bug was just too smug.  Nobody likes smug, especially with a losing record.  
Zontani told me that.
     WYATT EARP (12-2168) (31-15-1,180) of THE LAWMEN fought LOKI (71-3798) (20-18-
1,106) of ARCTIC GUARDS.  WYATT EARP beat LOKI in an action packed 3 minute fight.  
Wow, and it wasn't even a mis-match!  Good going, Loki.
     Obligation!  That's the word I was trying to think of.
     HEL (82-14331) (42-41-0,196) of ARCTIC GUARDS fought LORD REDMOND (12-4109) (34-
27-1,171) of LUROCIANS IV.  HEL defeated LORD REDMOND in an action packed 3 minute 
fight.  Well, you know, she had to.  Uh, Hel is a she, isn't she?  I think somebody 
said that, but I can't, you know, be sure from here.  Anyway, she had to, or he if 
she's a he, because of getting a little edge to hang onto that winning record.
     JULIUS (64-3641) (75-91-2,193) of UNDER DURESS fought DREHVIN (103-34) (75-45-
7,200) of College of Mimes.  JULIUS handily defeated DREHVIN in an exciting 1 minute 
one-sided contest.  But he didn't get away with it, because Helyse, or, um, somebody, 
I wouldn't know who, really, mugged him in an alley after the fights.
     GROGGY DOGGY (55-223) (127-182-0,187) of RHYME TYME fought SUPERIOR FORCES (33-
4543) (66-102-2,153) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY.  GROGGY DOGGY demolished SUPERIOR 
FORCES in a 2 minute gruesome uneven bout.  So now we know.  They aren't really 
superior, or only a little superior.
     HOUSE MOUSE (55-221) (119-185-2,187) of RHYME TYME fought BLUE (33-5776) (29-17-
1,152) of BLADES OF GRASS.  HOUSE MOUSE was devastated by BLUE in an action packed 1 
minute one-sided bout.  And now House Mouse isn't even stirring, which is a good 
thing!  I mean, who wants a mouse stirring stuff?
     LORD FIREFLASH (33-2966) (33-34-0,188) of LUROCIANS II fought TESEN (12-4211) 
(47-52-1,173) of DEMONS OF DARKNESS.  LORD FIREFLASH was overpowered by TESEN in a 1 
minute mismatched conflict.  I think this must be a, you know, demon thing.  Because 
of them being really good with fires and stuff.  Unless demons of darkness are ice 
demons?  We're going to have an ice age soon, you know.  So there are a lot of ice 
demons around, I guess.
     SAMOO (37-4630) (28-15-1,227) of DARKENED PRIDE fought SEVERUS SNAPE (18-7146) 
(43-26-0,204) of HOUSE SLYTHERIN.  SAMOO was beaten by SEVERUS SNAPE in an exciting 1 
minute bout.  Teachers are always doing that!  With sticks and, like, canes.  But not 
candy canes.
     PARANOIA (9-4557) (32-7-1,277) of DSM4 fought HERMES (58-6016) (24-11-0,202) of 
MYTHICAL.  PARANOIA devastated HERMES in an exciting 1 minute one-sided fight.  Well, 
you know what they say.  Um, I don't know which They, but some They.  About paranoia 
being devastating.  It really is.  Unless they really ARE out to get you.  Sometimes 
they are.
     TITAN (21-5070) (46-28-1,216) of BLACKEST PRIDE fought LUMP O'GORE (13-1212) 
(100-92-5,183) of ILLFANG PACT.  TITAN handily defeated LUMP O'GORE in a crowd 
pleasing 2 minute mismatched bout.  But the janitors weren't pleased, because of all 
the little lumps of gore mixed into the sand.
     SMALL ROOMS (97-606) (19-9-4,213) of THE HASTINGS fought LADY EMILY (33-6626) 
(28-18-1,196) of LUROCIANS II.  SMALL ROOMS vanquished LADY EMILY in an action packed 
1 minute mismatched bout.  She just didn't have room to swing her cat.  Or her 
bustle, either.  That's why I'm not a lady, even though I could be, because I don't 
LIKE a bustle.  It looks funny when you're tanning.
     SCOURGE (74-2857) (31-23-1,212) of DARK ANGELS fought DESECRATION (21-4392) (40-
16-3,336) of BLACKEST PRIDE.  SCOURGE was overpowered by DESECRATION in a popular 1 
minute mismatched conflict.  Gosh, I didn't know Scrouge was... oh.  Scourge, not 
Scrouge.  Okay.  That doesn't make more sense, but it doesn't make less sense, and 
anyway, that's the last random match, which means I'm more than half way done.

     So, challenge matches.
     THE SICKNESS (21-5327) (21-8-1,98) of BLACKEST PRIDE challenged LULU (32-3523) 
(24-33-1,45) of FISHERMAN'S WHARF.  Down 54.  THE SICKNESS handily defeated LULU in 
an exciting 1 minute one-sided Challenge contest.  Olaf had stuff to say about this, 
but I won't repeat it.  He's an old grouch, anyway, besides being dead.
     SHEYN (64-4157) (24-2-1,100) of HEART OF DARKNESS challenged FLESH RIPPER (74-
3375) (15-6-1,91) of LUROCIANS XI.  Down 9.  SHEYN demolished FLESH RIPPER in a 1 
minute mismatched Challenge match.  Ripping, and, you know, tearing.  Demons are 
allowed to do stuff like that.
     ROWARDENN (16-4105) (21-11-0,125) of SAILS OF CHARON challenged TIGRESS (13-
4471) (30-31-0,109) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 16.  ROWARDENN handily defeated TIGRESS 
in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge bout.  I bet Tigress won't forgive him any time 
soon, though, because of the way he grabbed her tail.
     SAMPSA (31-4233) (27-23-2,157) of SOL INVICTUS challenged TRYURLUCK (61-1029) 
(60-57-1,165) of BLOOD KNIGHTS.  Up 8.  SAMPSA was vanquished by TRYURLUCK in an 
exciting 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Bummer.  Try never does personals, and 
I LIKE people who do personals.  Sampsa talks.
     DOC HOLIDAY (12-2956) (21-18-1,152) of THE LAWMEN challenged RED BARON (33-1092) 
(35-37-3,168) of LUROCIANS II.  Up 16.  DOC HOLIDAY vanquished RED BARON in a 2 
minute uneven Challenge fight.  It says here, in the notes, you know, that Doc "shot 
him down over France."  I didn't know that was allowed.  I mean, France has her own 
ideas about men fighting over her, and I bet she'll be just as mad at Doc as at Red.
     KREWKUT SAUSAGE (65-6327) (25-25-0,205) of LINCOLNSHIRE challenged FUNNY BUNNY 
(55-1862) (93-132-1,209) of RHYME TYME.  Up 4.  KREWKUT SAUSAGE handily defeated 
FUNNY BUNNY in a 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.  So do we get bunny sausages now?  
Or shaved rabbits?
     JOPPA CLUBFIST (12-3748) (26-22-0,201) of HALL OF GIANT challenged LORD 
LIGHTSPEED (33-2928) (39-32-3,187) of LUROCIANS II.  Down 14.  JOPPA CLUBFIST bested 
LORD LIGHTSPEED in a popular 4 minute Challenge competition.  Does this mean that 
Joppa was faster than light, or did he break light's legs and slow it down, or, you 
know, what?
     THE MADNESS (21-5214) (34-14-1,199) of BLACKEST PRIDE challenged ELVIS (7-612) 
(39-31-0,201) of THE ROCKERS.  Up 2.  THE MADNESS viciously subdued ELVIS in a crowd 
pleasing 5 minute Challenge fight.  And I know WHY.  It's because of the flying 
saucer people.  They're pussy-fists, and they got TO Elvis.  It's, like, very sad.
     PANIC ATTACK (9-3624) (34-24-2,196) of DSM4 challenged FRAIL WHALE (55-1968) 
(113-165-3,192) of RHYME TYME.  Down 4.  PANIC ATTACK was overpowered by FRAIL WHALE 
in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge match.  The whale FELL on top of him or, you know, 
her, as the case might be.  Even a frail whale is heavy.
     MIMR (82-3783) (64-42-2,228) of SOL  INVICTUS challenged MILA (55-29) (65-97-
0,218) of ROCANIS RIDERS.  Down 10.  MIMR vanquished MILA in a popular 1 minute 
mismatched Challenge brawl.  Good!  After all, Mila is Royland's father, and blood 
TELLS.  Everybody says that.
     CAPTAIN CAVEMAN (56-3753) (15-1-0,86) of LAFFALYMPICS TV challenged BEER (71-
3539) (28-36-0,85) of STUFF I BROUGHT.  Down 1.  CAPTAIN CAVEMAN demolished BEER in a 
popular 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  And with a TV challenge, you KNOW 
Captain went to the tourney, and everybody at the tourney TRAINS on beer.  So it's a 
natural.

     And for the title of being Lord Marshall:  WOUNDWORT (12-4228) (63-38-0,234) of 
DARKMOON TV challenged ROYLAND (56-3380) (74-51-0,230) of REDHORSE.  Down 4.  
WOUNDWORT devastated ROYLAND in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge Title fight.  I am 
really happy about this, because of Royland being, you know, not one to write a 
column or even care.  So there.

                                        Debby T.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Debby T. -- Regarding your question about classical myths (Mimr vs. Hel).  Were you
just guessing or had you come across the name Mimr in your reading?  If so, I am
quite impressed with you as a scholar.  And I would be thrilled to read to you out of
some Icelandic sagas over drinks with umbrellas in them at The Pit.  I have a fine
volume of Prose Edda in which Mimr figures prominently. -- Bobby Bigfoot

     Why, thank you!  I would be totally honored. -- Debby T.
     P.S.  I read.  Don't tell.

Panic Attack -- You are pretty fast, but because of the early knockdown, I didn't get
to see your dodge. -- Woundwort

Hel -- You got up off of the ground amazingly fast from two of the three knockdowns.
That last one was tough on you though! -- Mimr

Kelos -- At least you got a win out of it.  I got nothing. -- Sampsa

Places the Lotion... -- (recoiling)  You put it WHERE? -- Whitewing
P.S.  Don't DO that, okay?  You really took me aback.  Way aback.  And it so hard to
get off the armor, too.

Smug Bug -- Gods, I hate it when you're smug.  I wish someone had squashed you when
you were still a larva. -- Redfox

Sungod Designed Me -- And he obviously knew what he was doing.  (sigh)  Oh, well, two
skills isn't to be sneezed at. -- Tigress
P.S.  Except that I'm allergic to 'em, or something.

Flesh Ripper -- I consider that damned unfriendly! -- Lulu

Standbys?  I had to fight a STANDBY?  Has no one here the courage to take a risk with
a fine bond? -- U.S. Steel
