                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Hi!

     I'm Turk.  Debby Tonte went on vacation again, so I got a chance to write a
spyreport.  Been waitin' for my shot!  Free Blades!  Woot!
     I don't know too much about you guys, but Olaf Modeen made some notes for me, so
that's good....
     Whoa!  Somebody got killed!  DISORDER (65-6419) (29-16-1,64) of PARANOIA fought
DRIZZT (40-4146) (16-7-0,61) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  DISORDER murdered DRIZZT in a 1
minute one-sided match.  Olaf thought that was pretty cool of Disorder.  I don't
know...Drizzt, how you doing?
     It looks like there was a major screwup at Rocanis Riders.  Kelos lost 27 points
to Propane Torch, and that wasn't supposed to happen.  KELOS (55-30) (81-120-4,201)
of ROCANIS RIDERS fought PROPANE TORCH (61-2524) (30-25-1,164) of FEAR FACTORY.
KELOS was overpowered by PROPANE TORCH in a popular 1 minute uneven duel.  Look at
the experience difference there!  Olaf recommended some new strategies and I'd have
to agree.
     So I guess Fear Factory's hatred of Rhyme Time is pretty well known?  RETROVIRUS
(70-6086) (35-29-0,217) of FEAR FACTORY IV challenged FUNNY BUNNY (55-1862) (123-146-
1,260) of RHYME TYME.  RETROVIRUS was vanquished by FUNNY BUNNY in a 1 minute
Challenge Title brawl.  So that was a successful Title defense by Funny Bunny...I'm
looking for a column here...I don't see one.  It must have gotten lost in the mail.
Well, next time.  Oh...I thought that was a TV challenge but it was an IV challenge.
I never heard of that kind before.
     And Fear Factory avoided Philanthropists.  Disgraceful.  I don't mean to be
mean, but what were you thinking?  You guys are warriors!
     Aria was the most challenged warrior.  KNUCKLE JAW (77-2129) (40-42-2,136) of
GWAR challenged ARIA (75-3012) (34-38-1,143) of DARK TOADS.  KNUCKLE JAW was subdued
by ARIA in a 2 minute Challenge match.  Knuckle Jaw's team, Gwar, that's in the Fear
Factory guild.
     Olaf made a special note of this fight:  KIMO (70-6089) (32-31-4,135) of FEAR
FACTORY IV challenged THOMAS (82-14150) (25-37-2,168) of TOADS OF KRONDUR II.  KIMO
was defeated by THOMAS in an exciting 2 minute Challenge match.  Olaf seemed to think
the important thing about this fight is that Kimo gained four recognition points even
though he lost.  Me, I think it's kinda noteworthy that these Fear Factory guys keep
getting their butts handed to them.  Bad day for the guild, huh?
     Now, this is a little confusing.  Olaf says, "Keep challenging up 34 points,
COERCE, and I won't have to write about you much longer.  DAMORETH STENN always
accepts those kind of challenges..."  I guess I don't understand how this works.  Do
warriors get to turn down challenges if they want to?  Anyway, here's how that fight
went:  COERCE (78-1577) (24-17-1,91) of FEAR FACTORY challenged DAMORETH STENN (65-
6105) (55-69-1,125) of SAND DANCERS.  COERCE was handily defeated by DAMORETH STENN
in a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.
     Okay, I guess Olaf tried for some balance here, because he brought up a fight
that Fear Factory won:  NINE INCH NAIL (61-2273) (29-25-2,100) of FEAR FACTORY
challenged THE QUICKLING (70-1669) (65-150-2,132) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  NINE INCH NAIL
won victory over THE QUICKLING in a sensational 1 minute Challenge fray.
     Those were all the fights Olaf thought I should talk about, but I think I should
recognize the stylemasters, too.  These dudes own!
     Okay, Funny Bunny we already talked about.  Top Striker.  And Paranoia, who he
beat:  Top Lunger.  So, epic fight, hey?
     Top Slasher:  Tryurluck.  TRYURLUCK (61-1029) (92-69-1,216) of BLOOD KNIGHTS
fought DREHVIN (103-34) (75-45-7,200) of WHO ARE THESE GUYS?  TRYURLUCK overpowered
DREHVIN in an action packed 1 minute brutal one-sided bout.  Um, I didn't mean the
other team was called "Who Are These Guys?"  I just noticed the team name was left
blank and I wrote a question in the fight list.  The clerk must have thought I was
filling in the blank when they typed up my fight notes.  Oh well, I guess Drehvin's
manager will speak up and announce his team's name next turn.
     Top Aimed Blow:  King Love.  KING LOVE (40-3748) (45-38-2,227) of GARDEN OF
HORRORS fought TAIRIKIA (51-4247) (102-90-2,266) of SAND DANCERS.  KING LOVE
demolished TAIRIKIA in a 1 minute uneven bout.  I didn't SEE him take aim, but then I
guess it's mostly a mental thing.
     Top Wall of Steel:  Superior Forces.  Strange name for one guy.  SUPERIOR FORCES
(33-4543) (85-127-2,216) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY fought JELIAH BIGABO (35-3676) (36-
16-2,197) of PHILANTHROPISTS 3.  SUPERIOR FORCES devastated JELIAH BIGABO in a
popular 1 minute mismatched brawl.  Our stylemasters are doing pretty great so far,
aren't they?  Except for Paranoia.
     Top Parry-Riposte:  Wyatt Earp.  WYATT EARP (12-2168) (38-21-1,197) of THE
LAWMEN challenged WINSTON (75-2600) (51-34-0,195) of DARK TOADS.  WYATT EARP
devastated WINSTON in a crowd pleasing 7 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  Gee, long
fight.
     Top Total Parry:  Fut Cough.  PANIC ATTACK (9-3624) (37-31-2,182) of DSM4 fought
FUT COUGH (17-4815) (49-25-0,203) of IMMORTAL ASYLUM.  PANIC ATTACK was vanquished by
FUT COUGH in a 1 minute one-sided fray.
     Top Parry-Lunger:  Nightcap.  NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (93-103-0,208) of DARKLINGS
fought DARLINA (74-2995) (54-50-3,155) of SAND DANCERS.  NIGHTCAP beat DARLINA in a
popular 1 minute fray.
     Top Parry-Striker:  Mortification.  MORTIFICATION (61-2333) (41-34-4,185) of
FEAR FACTORY challenged T-BONE (13-3139) (31-16-0,193) of LEGION OF DUMB.
MORTIFICATION bested T-BONE in a popular 3 minute gruesome Challenge competition.
     Top Basher:  Flattus Maximus.  FLATTUS MAXIMUS (77-2125) (43-40-2,129) of GWAR
challenged CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-196) (70-105-0,147) of THE DRAGON FIST.  FLATTUS
MAXIMUS was devastated by CORT NIGHTJEWEL in a 1 minute Challenge conflict.  Oh, no!
I thought all of our stylemasters were going to have won their fights, except
Paranoia because he fought another stylemaster.  Flattus, you let the team down!
     Babe of the Week:  Cyladia.  CYLADIA (51-1122) (121-128-1,243) of SKAITHVARN
fought GOSSAMER (35-3656) (36-27-1,185) of PHILANTHROPISTS 2.  CYLADIA vanquished
GOSSAMER in a 1 minute mismatched fray.  Blonde.  Great legs.  Something sexy about
that nearsighted frown.  But Gossamer--you'd think, from the name, that it'd be a
girl.  Nope.  Male dwarf with a beard tucked into his belt.  And I was hoping for a
girl-on-girl fight.  Oh well.
     That's about it.  Maybe they'll let me do this again next turn!  I hope to see
you then!

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Paranoia -- That was just obnoxious.  Damn, you're good. -- Nightcap

Pungent Stench -- What happened?  I was winning, and then...but...really good third
minute you've got there. -- Loping Wolf

Marilyn Manson -- That was a good fight, wasn't it?  Fun. -- Javelino

Tom Riddle -- Do I really have three times as many fights as you, or do you do
tourneys? -- Cyladia

Dartman -- Ooh, that was a real unlucky matchup for you.  But don't you wish you'd
been training skills? -- Mila

Bleys -- Wow.  You had me on the defensive from the first second.  That doesn't
happen often.  You're pretty good. -- Royland

The Big Meow -- Actually, if I've got to lose, I like doing it that way (from
exhaustion).  Hurts a lot less.  You're welcome to challenge me anytime. -- Kelos

Julius -- Once you get the jump, you don't share it, do you? -- Jammies

Winston -- Tough match for you.  Er, you caught me at a grouchy time of the month. --
Nightfall

All -- I transferred my army of puds to this arena.  I should have 17 fighters here
next turn:  PSes, BAs, and TPs galore!  Most are from Jurine, which went 10-1 last
turn. -- Var

The Commission -- I see that there are a lot of foreign warriors in this arena.  Does
that mean at the next split I can transfer my 'Larqs here?  Also, what about warriors
from 82?  Can I send them here straight from graduation? -- Var

     Just try it.  If you can't, they'll let you know. -- Turk (who has very little
     contact with that department of the Commission, especially in the wee hours of
     the morning)

Samsara -- You've got it in for me, don't you?  Every time you turn around, you say
to yourself, what can I do to mess up Stenn's life today.  A win!  What do you think
Jorja's going to say next time I try to retire?  She's going to say, "Damoreth, you
beat Samsara just the other day, and him with only a quarter of your fights.  You're
not ready to retire."  And I'll say, "He had a tv challenge, that means he does
tourneys and has more fights than you think!"  And she'll say, "All the more reason
for you to keep fighting, then, if you can beat him."  So I'm screwed, and it's all
your fault! -- Damoreth Stenn

We Like the Moon -- You keep saying that, and then making sure we have no reason to
agree with you.  Damned monkey. -- Darlina

Flattus Maximus -- That's got to be kidney beans.  Heck. -- Mouse Noyle
P.S.  Did you know that a pinto bean is just a kidney bean with skin problems?

Retribution -- You shouldn't remind people that they could come seeking that.
Because then they try and find out what FUN it is. -- Tairikia, retributively

Vallant -- I never had a knack for toads.  Always had a sort of live-and-let-live
policy toward them, so I never practiced hitting them.  Not much point, and besides,
toads are generally small and hard to hit anyway. -- Redofx

Kelos -- Maybe I need to retire.  I've been at this too long. -- Redfox

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
