                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Here it is, that day again, and I'm late but it isn't my fault.  It rained.  
Rain does awful things to the roads, and the lightning pigeons won't fly, and it's 
just trouble, but it makes the outdoors smell good.

     So, coming back into the office, here is what the notes have.  Some of it is, 
well, kind of not quite, is what *I* think.  I mean all this about egos swelling, and 
people being cramped under tables at the Wolf's Head, and stuff like that.
     Under Duress was avoided by Colgate Days, who didn't want to fight the same old 
fossils, I guess.
     Golem got the most challenges.  Now, there is somebody with one of those not-a-
secrets, right?
     Twenty-nine fights, and some where challenge matches.  Um, eleven.  All radio.  
Four standbys.  One person got killed dead, but only for a while.  The longest fight 
was seven minutes, which isn't bad when it's raining.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Artemisia -- I tell you, there are some days I wonder why I ever got into this
gladiating stuff.  That was the LONGEST and most unpleasant minute I've experienced
in a while, and there have been some fairly bad ones lately.  I told Uncle Wolf--he's
my manager back back down in the Charter Cities--that I wanted to retire, but does he
listen?  And Jorja--she's the QUEEN of not listening.  Oh, well. -- Tigress

Retribution -- But what did *I* do?  If it's about that strike last month, that
wasn't MY doing, you know!  I have nothing to do with the management. -- U.S. Steel,
just a moneyman

Jeliah Bigabo -- I suppose your silence aids your fighting, as you don't waste any
energy or breath on communication.  But do you really want to be one of those men who
does nothing but fight, has no life at all outside the arena?  Think before you
pursue this course! -- Lulu

Naturally, Rosella didn't speak, but her gestures at the end of our match were most
eloquent.  I shall buy her a drink. -- Redfox, ever the gentleman

Colossus -- The bigger they are, the harder they fall.  Not that you're big
physically, but that massive ego... it's a wonder you can move under that weight! --
Whitewing

Furball -- There are too many damned CATS in this arena!  It's discrimination!
Attempted genocide, even!  I hope you CHOKE on that hairball! -- Mouse Noyle

The Cat's Meow -- Brave challenge.  You're pretty fast, too.  You might beat me next
time. -- Mila
P.S.  I can't stand young hotshots like you.
P.P.S.  Holy stinkin' poot, I'm a Grand Challenger Champion!  Look at the mess you
made!  I could end up as Lord Marshall, and then where would we be?

     In Lirin Kiv, probably.

Debby Tonte -- What do you mean, you wish I'd lost?  Sure I'm an old fossil, but
fossils like to win sometimes, you know?  Or we get depressed. -- Mila

     Well, that's okay.  Get depressed.  See if I care.

Doc Holiday -- The crowd thought you should've beaten me, I guess.  That has to be
why they roared in disapproval when you surrendered.  Certainly you were badly enough
hurt; they couldn't have thought you were a coward.  Oh well, sometimes you've just
got to ignore them.  Hang in there, use your challenges and avoids, try to fight guys
closer to your own experience, and you'll do all right. -- Royland

Debby Tonte -- I NEVER raided caravans!  I was a caravan guard, which is a
respectable entry-level job for an adventurer.  I don't care to say what my father
may have done, but in any case he is reformed now.  He's a lawman himself. -- Royland

     They all say that.

Sampsa -- You're a golem?  If you're not, you shouldn't let those Commission guys
call you that.  Ladies will be thinking you don't have a what d'you call it, a gender
attachment. -- Kelos

     He might be a cockroach, if his first name is Greg.

Debby Tonte -- I'm training my horse for combat.  I have to ride him everywhere so he
gets used to a variety of environments.  I have a permit to ride him in the backstage
areas of the arena.  If the janitor is bothered, I guess I can hire a boy to follow
along with a wheelbarrow and clean up. -- Kelos

     I think there's a union about that.

Lord Fireflash -- Well, as the only member of my team to lose last turn, I was a bit
embarrassed.  You fought well.  I fight like a weenie from flat on my back. -- Loping
Wolf

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.
Street Legal

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!

21 May 2005
Amendment for "Fratsfas Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
