                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Hail and well met warriors of FREE BLADES!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SUPERIOR FORCES caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LORD FIREFLASH and was 
awarded 31 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SUPERIOR 
FORCES put down LORD FIREFLASH, causing him to lose 30 points of recognition in the 
process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on KREWKUT SAUSAGE 
as he bore arms against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster WOUNDWORT.  Although 
KREWKUT SAUSAGE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious WOUNDWORT.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in FREE BLADES these days is BLACKEST PRIDE.  At least, most blades in 
town are looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild 
it was that spent the better part of last week avoiding BLACKEST PRIDE.  Indeed it 
was COLGATE DAYS.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms 
the knowledge that many fighters are after LOPING WOLF.  Watch your back!  I cannot 
but express pride for the fearlessness of PLACES THE LOTION... who cast caution to 
the winds and TV challenged LOPING WOLF, a fighter 71 points higher.  8 points of 
newly earned recognition and a dose of my admiration is what PLACES THE LOTION... 
must now weigh against the defeat which resulted.  For some warriors honor is not 
important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how MIMR of SOL  INVICTUS challenged 
down 46 points to HERMES.  All the city knows the duel went in favor of MIMR.  I 
shall not fail to spread the word in other cities of this "mighty" victory.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Smiling Goat -- I see no reason for a goat to smile.  Nasty, smelly creatures, you
goats.  Not like a Mouse.  WE have things to be proud of.  But goats?  I don't think
so.... -- Mouse Noyle, the Superior Rodent

House Mouse -- Ugh.  I used to think I could take mouses or leave them alone.  Then
we got one in our guildhouse.  A mouse that wants his own room, and cheese on the
menu everyday.  Ugh.  Double ugh. -- Tigress

Sungod Designed Me -- You said that already.  You need a new tune, boy. -- Redfox

Beer -- And very fine beer you are, too.  I would be glad to find a cozy corner with
you.  (leer) -- Whitewing

Rosella -- I hate mimes!  Gods, the things we have to associate with!  Mice.  Ducks.
MIMES.  Gods.  I should QUIT this unnatural life! -- U.S. Steel

Rosella -- I have no sympathy for mimes myself, but it must be hard having to fight
twice in the same day. -- Lulu

Loping Wolf -- Any fight is good if you WIN.  It doesn't look so very fine from the
other side, though. -- Whitewing

Loping Wolf -- Sometimes a woman has to work to get a man's attention, after all. --
Lulu

Nebuchadnezzar -- I don't think you were ready for that fight.  Better luck next
time.  Oh, and remind your manager to change your train. -- Royland

Hel -- Nice riposte there, lassie. -- Lump o'Gore

Debby Tonte -- With my looks, I'm not too likely to find a Mrs. o'Gore.  Unless
you're volunteering. -- Lump o'Gore

Wrath of One -- You're very slippery.  I don't think I'd have the balls to walk into
the arena dressed in nothing but an oiled bodysuit.  At least I hope it was a
bodysuit. -- Mila

Debby Tonte -- The fight may have looked one-sided, but frankly I was taken aback by
that bodysuit and I didn't fight my best. -- Mila

Red Baron -- You dodge pretty well but I guess my experience won out.  Sorry neither
of us learned anything. -- Kelos

Debby Tonte -- No, the Rocanis Riders never joined the Rocani Legion, except for
Mila.  As far as I know, Red Baron isn't a caravan raider or any other kind of
outlaw.  I'd be glad to show him the ropes though. -- Kelos

The Sickness -- Sorry I wasn't up to the fight that day.  I had a lot of aches and
pains.  I think I'm coming down with something. -- Loping Wolf

Debby Tonte -- Nobody has shot me. -- Loping Wolf

11 November 2004
All you alliance-type people, I'm trying (again!) to get my alliance listing correct
and up to date.  Either send me a diplo (address it to The Saint) or send your
updates to me directly at Sue at solberg-mathews.com.  As you may guess, replace the
at with @ and you're good to go (I do hate spammy mail and this will end up on the
web).

I have information on the following alliances:  ADIO, Allied Axis, Armada,
Brotherhood of Justice, Brotherhood of the Blade, Cadre, CDC, Chaos, Inc., Circle of
Order, Company of Brothers, Consortium, Council of Lords, Couple Good Guys, Crimson
Vengeance, DOA, DOOMcorps, Enigmafia, Eurosquad, Fascist Federation, FONZ,
Frothingslosh Syndicate, GAPPDA, Homeland Alliance, IT Alliance, Jingoists, kLk,
Knights of the Covenant, LBA, League Arcane, Legion6, Living Essences, Lords and
Ladies of Darkness, Manic Union, Midnight Foundation, Minions of Diana, Monarchs of
Montezuma, NCA, NIMROD, R.A.G.E., Seventh Sons, The Firm, The French Connection,
Vendett@ United, and the Vendetta Cartel.

If you are a member of one of these alliances, let me know.  If you are a member of
some other alliance that isn't listed, let me know.  If you were at any point in your
past a part of one of these alliance but are now independent, also let me know.
Going inactive doesn't mean you get removed from this list; people are assumed to
still be in the same alliance when they return.  Even having everyone in an alliance
go inactive doesn't change anything.  If an alliance is officially disbanding, that's
another thing you have to let me know....

The Saint, keeper of lists

P.S.  If you already responded to my online plea (and I replied), you can ignore
this.

                       Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups
                                  Hosted by Hammer

     Niytyole Island DM 33 has dwindled to the point where as of T-482 [duedate
November 3, 2004] there were only 2 active stables listed with 3 inactive stables in
a once thriving and lively regular arena.
     During the past 40+ cycles Hammer has been hosting the Hammer Run for the Roll
Ups in DM 33.
     Thus far only the Ripper and Slasher categories have produced winners to claim
the 5 New Team Roll Ups Prize for being the first declared Style Master of their
respective categories to graduate.
     Every contending stable has gone inactive for one reason or another, including
CASINO HAMMERZ, over the past several months.
     Now DM 33 faces the harsh reality that if RSI chooses to close any arenas due to
little or no interest, Niytyole Island could very well head the list of endangered
regular arenas!
     In an effort to preserve his beloved island, Hammer is announcing the
continuation of the Hammer Run for the Roll Ups; combined with the Hammer 500 which
will conclude both contests on T-500 [duedate July 13, 2005] should DM 33 continue to
remain open in the coming months.
     Attention Hammer Runners!
     The Hammer Run is for 0 FE Basic Arena Warriors ONLY.  Participants MUST Be
Declared in the P-ads On or Before their First DM 33 Basic Arena Fight to Qualify as
a Hammer Runner!  Winners of Each Category will receive 5 New Team Roll Up Gift
Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  [On the condition that they
Graduate on or before T-500; see amended rules below!]
     The following Style Master categories remain open with a listing of how many
declared contestants are still entered and their W/L recognition record at the time
of their disappearance from the Hammer Run competition:
     (P-ad declarations in parenthesis)
     [Manager name/Stable name in brackets] followed by their last known W/L

     As you can plainly see, the Hammer Run is still wide open in several categories,
depending upon whether or not the deactivated stables are reactivated for the Hammer
500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups contest!
     Any declared warrior who succeeds in graduating by T-500 will win 5 New Team
Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  Gift Certs will be
awarded as soon as possible upon official graduation if the graduation occurs prior
to T-500.
     On T-500 the highest ranked ACTIVE declared warrior in the category(s) without a
Graduate will win 2 New Team Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of
Hammer!
     Additional Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups Gift Cert Prizes:
     Five (5) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager whose warrior claims the
Duelmaster Throne on T-500.
     Two (2) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed
as the highest Active Challenger Champion, Champion, Challenger Adept, Adept,
Challenger Initiate and Initiate on T-500.
     In the event that NO Duelmaster is seated upon the Duelmaster Throne on T-500
there will be Three (3) Gift Certs awarded to the managers whose Active warriors are
tied for recognition points at the Top of the Challenger Champions recognition
standings.  [Therefore, the Top CC will be awarded 3 Gift Certs instead of 2 for
being ranked as the highest CC on T-500].
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) graduate on
T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) receive
their graduation announcement on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed
in the Top Warrior Of Each Style newsletter announcement on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the

     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose stable is listed as the

     SHOULD RSI CHOOSE TO CLOSE DM 33 PRIOR TO T-500 ONLY THE HIGHEST ACTIVE DECLARED
STYLE MASTER CONTESTANTS WILL BE AWARDED TWO (2) GIFT CERTS AND ALL OTHER PRIZE
CATEGORIES WILL BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID BY HAMMER!!!!!!!!!
     The purpose of this contest is to restore DM 33 to a lively and entertaining
arena!
     Hammer is willing to foot the Prize bill in a last ditch effort to save Niytyole
Island from deletion if RSI and the Gladiatorial Commission decide that more arenas
need to be closed due to lack of participation and interest.
     Should this effort fail to spare DM 33 from deletion, then Hammer is prepared to
transfer CASINO HAMMERZ to another arena if Niytyole Island is closed by RSI and the
Gladiatorial Commission.
