    '##/###' Avoid teams by their Team Id     '-'  Team did not fight this turn

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Olaf made such a MESS here, it's amazing one man could do it.  Is it because 
he's dead?

     One of the golems took some notes, I forget which one.  Not that it matters.  
They never say anything NEW, you know.
     Gwar was avoided most of any team.  That's the Rat Boy, right?  I don't know why 
people would avoid him, he's kind of sweet.  But, anyway, Do It Again didn't want to 
fight him.  Okay, if that's the way they feel about it.  Oh, and it's Flattus, too.  
He isn't sweet, but he's very, you know, impressive.
     Smug Bug got the most challenges, and the golem told him to watch his back.  Ha!  
Golems may be able to watch their backs, but people can't, which just shows you how 
little golems know!  The only way Smug could watch his back would be if somebody cut 
his head off and put it behind him.  Which is actually not a bad idea.  But people 
never do stuff like that any more.
     We had thirty-five fights, which is cool.  And only two standbys.  We're still 
ahead of everybody except Talahya and Primus.  But Crysalis is catching up.  
Actually, this is good.  If arenas get too small, there wouldn't be enough work for 
us spy reporters, so we like them totally big.  Fifteen challenges, on tv and the 
rest radio.
     Nobody died.
     That's all the real news, if it IS news, and the rest is just, you know, 
details.

     So, here are some details:
     THE MAD CARROT (40-3862) (9-1-0,28) of GARDEN OF HORRORS fought ROSELLA (103-39) 
(26-25-0,100) of the College of Mimes.  THE MAD CARROT overpowered ROSELLA in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute one-sided duel.  I haven't seen this Carrot around before, which 
means it's a new thing.  This is good.
     SISTER X (12-6340) (21-9-0,100) of CULTS-R-US fought KJARRAN'S HAMMER (61-3372) 
(20-11-0,81) of FEAR FACTORY.  SISTER X demolished KJARRAN'S HAMMER in an action 
packed 2 minute one-sided conflict.  She's tough, Sister is.
     JAVELINO (56-3728) (35-43-0,116) of REDHORSE fought SAMSARA (75-3055) (13-13-
0,94) of I AM SAM.  JAVELINO was handily defeated by SAMSARA in a 1 minute one-sided 
fight.  I could feel sorry for Javelino, but lots of gladiators have managers who 
don't pay attention.  It happens all the time.
     THE QUICKLING (70-1669) (71-161-2,141) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought MARILYN MANSON 
(61-1993) (38-28-2,149) of FEAR FACTORY.  THE QUICKLING was subdued by MARILYN MANSON 
in an exciting 2 minute struggle.  Good work, Marilyn!
     SERIAL MURDERER (9-990) (26-30-0,134) of THE MONGOLOIDS fought MOUSE NOYLE (17-
6252) (43-71-0,102) of MIDDLE WAY.  SERIAL MURDERER viciously subdued MOUSE NOYLE in 
a crowd pleasing 8 minute fight.  Eight minutes?  I could get FROSTBITE in eight 
minutes!  What were you THINKING out there?

     3 FISTED RAT BOY (70-6130) (37-53-3,178) of GWAR fought XHUGHA KARGARIT (103-38) 
(32-28-1,130) of the College of Mimes.  3 FISTED RAT BOY overpowered XHUGHA KARGARIT 
in an exciting 2 minute uneven bout.  Of course.
     GRETH (32-4321) (21-8-1,166) of RILL'S GCSC2 fought BIONIC BUFFALO (11-6570) 
(26-9-0,170) of DO IT AGAIN.  GRETH was defeated by BIONIC BUFFALO in an exciting 1 
minute fight.  How about if you don't do it again, Bionic?  I mean, it was messy.
     REDFOX (13-4197) (74-114-0,204) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought FLATTUS MAXIMUS (77-
2125) (48-50-2,161) of GWAR.  REDFOX overpowered FLATTUS MAXIMUS in a 1 minute one-
sided match.  Yes, well, fossils.  Maybe you shouldn't wait for the Split, Redfox.  I 
mean, if you're going to start winning fights and all.  There's a kind of threshhold 
or something where even bad warriors, sorry, but you ARE, have so much experience 
they can beat anybody but other very old bad warriors like themselves.  I think maybe 
you're getting there.
     SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) (95-134-2,193) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY fought MUDVAYNE 
(61-3039) (25-22-0,152) of FEAR FACTORY.  SUPERIOR FORCES overpowered MUDVAYNE in an 
action packed 1 minute uneven fight.  The magic of a name.
     RILLION (36-5545) (44-29-1,202) of THE CHADS fought LIMA BEAN FLAMBE (70-3118) 
(37-27-0,189) of HEAVE HO!  RILLION overcame LIMA BEAN FLAMBE in an exciting 1 minute 
duel.  I think flambe-ing is a good thing to do to lima beans, actually.  They taste 
like powdered library paste.

     PROPANE TORCH (61-2524) (36-34-1,192) of FEAR FACTORY fought JULIUS (64-3641) 
(107-120-2,195) of UNDER DURESS.  PROPANE TORCH was overpowered by JULIUS in a 1 
minute one-sided fray.  More fissle, I mean fossil stuff.  What keeps a gladiator 
gladiating after 227 fights?  Besides a manager not paying attention, I mean.
     KELOS (55-30) (88-130-4,195) of ROCANIS RIDERS fought KING LOVE (40-3748) (53-
41-2,202) of GARDEN OF HORRORS.  KELOS vanquished KING LOVE in an action packed 1 
minute uneven bout.  You see?  Today is "fossils arise" or something.
     FUNNY BUNNY (55-1862) (133-153-2,215) of RHYME TYME fought RIDDLER (61-1856) 
(72-54-1,198) of FEAR FACTORY.  FUNNY BUNNY overpowered RIDDLER in a popular 3 minute 
brutal one-sided duel.  This is, like, totally excessive brutality, because of 
Riddler beeing too, um, something to have to be forced to listen to the same old 
jokes AGAIN.
     SAMARIUM (75-3071) (30-17-1,213) of I AM SAM fought ROYLAND (56-3380) (113-73-
0,190) of REDHORSE.  SAMARIUM was defeated by ROYLAND in an exciting 1 minute duel.  
Fossils, and besides, Royland is Not Nice.
     VINCENT CRABBE (74-3498) (57-50-2,224) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE fought JELIAH BIGABO 
(35-3676) (46-23-2,197) of PHILANTHROPISTS 3.  VINCENT CRABBE was devastated by 
JELIAH BIGABO in a popular 2 minute one-sided bout.  Why was this one-sided?  We've 
had worse!

     MORTIFICATION (61-2333) (50-40-4,237) of FEAR FACTORY fought TAIRIKIA (51-4247) 
(115-94-2,190) of SAND DANCERS.  MORTIFICATION was savagely defeated by TAIRIKIA in 
an action packed 3 minute fray.  Yes, again the fossils.  They're just all over the 
place.  I don't count Mort, he has less than a hundred fights, after all.
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (107-106-0,261) of DARKLINGS fought ALVIN (16-3927) (45-25-
1,201) of AARON'S ANGELS.  NIGHTCAP narrowly defeated ALVIN in an action packed 2 
minute brutal fight.  This makes Alvin look very good, to have come so close.  Hang 
in there, in fact, come back next time and down that Nightcap!
     KREWKUT SAUSAGE (65-6327) (33-26-0,238) of LINCOLNSHIRE fought GOSSAMER (35-
3656) (44-36-1,183) of PHILANTHROPISTS 2.  KREWKUT SAUSAGE overpowered GOSSAMER in a 
crowd pleasing 1 minute mismatched fight.  It's been a long time since I saw that 
Sausage on the Isle.  Hi.
     KYRLANIA (70-2327) (103-117-1,219) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought JAMMIES (74-2829) 
(97-89-1,262) of DARKLINGS.  KYRLANIA demolished JAMMIES in a 1 minute one-sided 
bout.  A couple of fossils here.  Who cares?  I keep hoping, you know, that a fossil 
manager will read these comments and pull the fossils OUT, because they all have 
younger warriors who would be more fun to have around.
     NIGHTFALL (74-2421) (140-110-4,215) of DARKLINGS fought TRYURLUCK (61-1029) 
(103-75-1,200) of BLOOD KNIGHTS.  NIGHTFALL was devastated by TRYURLUCK in a 1 minute 
one-sided fight.  Hardly worth commenting on, unless you want to hear that they went 
into this match with 428 fights between them, not counting tourneys.

     The challenges, great stuff, challenges, it means someone is paying attention:
     MALT-O-MEAL (60-7527) (17-5-1,55) of CHILDHOOD TRAUMA challenged COMRADE KOOK 
(12-6339) (20-11-1,66) of CULTS-R-US.  Up 11.  MALT-O-MEAL was viciously subdued by 
COMRADE KOOK in a 2 minute Challenge bout.  Why don't they make some of the other 
kinds any more?  Malt-O-Meal is so pale.
     REPREHENSIBLE (82-27850) (2-6-0,62) of THE BROTHERHOOD 91 challenged LU-
LIGHTNING (13-4900) (21-11-1,78) of KIRKWOOD 1.  Up 16.  REPREHENSIBLE was defeated 
by LU-LIGHTNING in a 1 minute Challenge struggle.  This is going to be, like, totally 
typical of Rep's fights for a while.  Coming in like that, inexperienced, is hard.  
Everyone says so.
     PITSPAWN FOULDOG (61-3121) (21-15-1,91) of FEAR FACTORY challenged DRIZZT (40-
4146) (22-18-0,96) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Up 5.  PITSPAWN FOULDOG was handily defeated 
by DRIZZT in a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  That means Drizzt used his hands.  
Both hands, even.
     KNUCKLE JAW (77-2129) (46-51-2,147) of GWAR challenged MIMOSA (32-4294) (19-11-
0,149) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Up 2.  KNUCKLE JAW was bested by MIMOSA in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute Challenge bout.  Thorns.  What can you do?
     SANGUINE (40-4135) (19-5-1,123) of BLOOD ANGELS challenged CANNIBAL CORPSE (61-
2373) (30-32-4,116) of FEAR FACTORY.  Down 7.  SANGUINE devastated CANNIBAL CORPSE in 
a 1 minute one-sided Challenge battle.  Just so long as CC didn't get EATEN, it's 
okay.  But this cannibal stuff should not be encouraged.

     CLAUDIUS (13-2860) (42-32-2,173) of I, CLAUDIUS challenged DAMORETH STENN (65-
6105) (61-80-1,159) of SAND DANCERS.  Down 14.  CLAUDIUS demolished DAMORETH STENN in 
a 1 minute mismatched Challenge match.  You should go fishing, Damoreth.  Um, ice 
fishing.
     SCOOBY DOOM (12-6021) (23-10-1,169) of HOUNDS OF HELL challenged LOPING WOLF 
(56-1796) (89-143-0,177) of REDHORSE.  Up 8.  SCOOBY DOOM was handily defeated by 
LOPING WOLF in a 1 minute Challenge bout.  So, does this mean that a wolf is meaner 
than a dog?  Or just older.  The "age and cunning" deal.
     PUNGENT STENCH (61-2458) (44-30-1,191) of FEAR FACTORY challenged T-BONE (13-
3139) (39-25-0,201) of LEGION OF DUMB.  Up 10.  PUNGENT STENCH was vanquished by T-
BONE in a 2 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  If T-Bone is dumb, why does he win?
     NOREASTER (35-3896) (24-5-1,184) of DIRT DEVILS challenged DARLINA (74-2995) 
(59-62-3,190) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 6.  NOREASTER was vanquished by DARLINA in an 
action packed 2 minute uneven Challenge duel.  If you're not careful, Darlina, you'll 
get a winning record, and THEN where will you be?  Your teammates probably won't even 
talk to you.
     NINE INCH NAIL (61-2273) (37-32-3,182) of FEAR FACTORY challenged SMUG BUG (55-
2900) (61-120-0,182) of RHYME TYME.  Straight across.  NINE INCH NAIL overcame SMUG 
BUG in an action packed 1 minute Challenge fight.  This is the most-challenged Bug, 
and you know how it is, nobody likes to see "smug," so everyone was cheering for 
Nine.

     REQUIEM (11-4472) (27-21-0,183) of BALLAD OF THE BLADE challenged COERCE (78-
1577) (31-25-1,183) of FEAR FACTORY.  Straight across.  REQUIEM was luckily beaten by 
COERCE in an exciting 3 minute bloody Challenge struggle.  Was this luck?  I mean, 
really just luck?  I always thought luck didn't last three minutes, and it was 
exciting, besides.  I think it's just Coerce is better than people expect.
     KIMO (70-6089) (39-39-4,200) of FEAR FACTORY IV challenged CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-
196) (79-113-0,209) of THE DRAGON FIST.  Up 9.  KIMO was overpowered by CORT 
NIGHTJEWEL in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge match.  No point going on more about 
this, is there?
     NEBUCHADNEZZAR (22-5821) (53-47-0,291) of BLADES OF WONDER challenged GOLEM (35-
1485) (72-53-1,196) of THE PHILANTHROPISTS.  Wow, down 95!  NEBUCHADNEZZAR lost to 
GOLEM in a crowd pleasing 4 minute gory Challenge brawl.  This has got to be SOOO 
embarrassing!

     Our TV challenge (we congratulate you):  DARTMAN (33-7161) (48-21-3,204) of 
COLGATE DAYS TV challenged VICTIM OF SOCIETY (55-3179) (50-43-2,233) of 
PHILANTHROPISTS.  Up 29.  DARTMAN devastated VICTIM OF SOCIETY in a 1 minute 
mismatched Challenge fight.  And we see how you came to HAVE the TV to use.

     And for the title:  RETROVIRUS (70-6086) (46-33-0,221) of FEAR FACTORY IV 
challenged ROMULUS (32-3047) (63-46-3,306) of ROMAN HEROES.  Up 85.  RETROVIRUS was 
savagely defeated by ROMULUS in a 6 minute Challenge Title melee.  Which leaves 
Romulus still our Lord Marshall, and probably for quite a while yet.  
Congratulations.

                                      Debby T.

Dartman -- Ah, you're too much for this old fossil!  Although out of the arena, my
experience is extensive and I can show you plenty of good moves.  Come on up and see
me some time. -- Darlina

Nightfall -- Not that your manager will notice, but your sword has been infected with
some kind of demon.  First it whistled, which is not something a normal sword does,
and then it displayed untamed berserker energy.  This could get you into lots of
trouble. -- Tairikia

Kelos -- And speaking of fossils.... -- Redfox

Nine Inch Nail -- I knew a guy with nails like that once.  He was some kind of weirdo
even by the standards of the Clawmoon, to which he belonged. -- Damoreth Sten

Reprehensible -- And you have attained the fate appropriate to your nature, too. --
Mouse Noyle

24 January 2007
The Council of Lords would like to propose a rule change in ADM and Primus.  We
propose that Lord Protectors ranked "Grand Champions" and below (ADM) and "The Tower
Guard" and below (Primus) be allowed to fight in the Dark Arena.  This would not
impact the top rankings or title match.  Any managers who never got his fill or shot
at fighting Gateway monsters would have it as an option.  We believe it might spark
some interest in the ADM/Primus realm for some managers.  If interested, speak up in
the newsletters or on forums under the "rules changes" thread and let RSI know.  This
could even be something to try for 12 months and then be re-evaluated.  What say you,
managers of Ghea? -- The Icelord sends....

     HDFA Mission Statement
     "Show me the money!"
     This is the battle cry of a newly formed collection of like-minded individuals:
The High Dolla' Free Agent$.  We are not a tough guy alliance:  No...we offer no
battle without reward.  We search for victory and the prizes and accolades that
follow.  We are motivated by winning and will freely use whatever means necessary to
obtain our currency.  No stuffy rules, no mandates, no constitutions, no leaders,
only a few objectives:
     1) Win as often as possible
     2) Celebrate freely and revel in your victories; the more meaningless the
victory the more we celebrate.  Highsiding and chest thumping are encouraged.
Ostentatious endzone celebrations with prop usage are encouraged, regardless of
fines, penalties, suspensions or arrest by local authorities.  It is important to let
your opponent know how great you are; more importantly, you must let your own
alliance mates know how great you are.
     This is a 1-up alliance, let the performance of your fellow Free Agent$ motivate
you.  If a Free Agent wins a TV, win 2; if a Free agent wins a contest, win a more
prestigious one.
     Current members of the HDFA include:  CFH and Abraxis.  Inquires can be directed
to:  CFH/Rat Salad DM 47
