                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     I was going on vacation, and I really needed it, se?  Surf, sun, drinks with
umbrellas in them....  But what do those bums say?  "Hit the road, Debby Tonte.  FREE
BLADES needs a spy report."  Talk about idiots!  I mean, I was IN Free Blades when 
they talked to me.  Oh, well.  MVP award for FLYING HELLFISH?  Everybody's flying
these days.  CARNIVAL OF CHAOS' proud of him after beating TREEFROG and getting 32
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  TREEFROG's match with FLYING HELLFISH cost him
a loss of 29 points, AND he got knocked out of his tree!  Oh, wow, like the Lord
Marshall must be the most popular guy in all FREE BLADES.  He got the most
challenges.  (But what about proposals?)  Like, ABSOLUTION must be pretty gutsy!  He
challenged the Lord Marshall from THE MONGOLOIDS.  Does this guy have a death wish or
what!  This Lord Marshall is like something else!  WILLY LIV stopped ABSOLUTION dead
in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said FREE BLADES' Lord Marshall was paying
for drinks at The Cooler?  Don't look at me!
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just
wing this stuff.  FEAR FACTORY was the most avoided team.  Is a 295-317-5 record
really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why ANGELS OF PAIN's been avoiding
FEAR FACTORY so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Ooh!  Did NOREASTER
really know what he was doing when he TV challenged SAVORY?  A 104-40-2 speaks
volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  I don't know what it means.)  [Encyclopedia Alataria
volume three]  (They've got three volumes?  I didn't know that.  Thanks.)  Do you
think NOREASTER knew something before he challenged SAVORY?  He got a win and 13
points.  What will the guy do next?  See if I ever talk to WHITE LION again!
RETROVIRUS was so low when He challenged he.  And the clerk who wrote that down did
NOT have an umbrella in his drink.  The umbrellas soak up the alcohol, you know.
Hhmph!  If WHITE LION can't beat a warrior 27 points below himself, that he
CHALLENGED, he oughtta be selling food in the stands!  Some fights are really unfair.
How do you think SLEEPWALKER feels about being challenged by FLYING PIG, 22 points
above him?  I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in FREE BLADES.  FLYING PIG got
2 points after beating SLEEPWALKER, 22 points below him.
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All FREE BLADES ever talks about is fighting!
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Corey the Moose -- You bent my shield, and now it is totally useless; I expect you to
pay for the damage.  Shall I have my people call your people? -- White Lion

     You mean, like, seconds?  Cool!  I've never seen that kind of duel.

Pyg -- A Blood Games Victor, from the land of midgets!  Perhaps you can give my
teammate Cowboys (currently in Home Guard) some tips on how to win.  He is finding
ADM to be a tough go. -- Wailin' Van Halen

Sekhat -- How kind of you!  As you know, fingers are especially important to a guitar
virtuoso such as myself. -- Wailin' Van Halen

Flying Pig -- Took me a while to catch my breath after that fight.  You fly
beautifully. -- Sleepwalker

Murderous Malno -- Sorry about the teddy bear remark.  Sorry about your arena name,
too.  Tsk tsk. -- Sekhat

Bah.  Pfui.  Other exclamations as required.

     Zeb Karan around the big table.  Arena staff of all ranks and titles sat and 
stared at each other:  arenamasters, standbys, Dark Arena warriors, stewards and 
infirmarians, even the maintenance crew.  This was not the first time they'd met like 
this, and it probably wouldn't be the last.
     "So this is it again, is it?" Lew Voth asked.  "Less than seven years since they 
closed Dwes Eg to new teams, and now they're closing Blackstone?"
     "Only to new teams," one of the spymasters pointed out.  "And it's necessary.  
There are several file rooms we haven't been able to enter in months because they're 
too full of team records."
     "Nothing you couldn't fix with a lighted match," Jame Rinvar suggested.  
Technically he should not have been there, since he'd taken over full time as the 
arenamaster of Shadowspire.  But no one wanted to tell him to leave.
     "We may NEED those records one of these days," Chief Steward Hesselrod protested.  
"We can't burn RECORDS."
     "I could," Rinvar said.
     "But you won't."  Voth pinned him with a stare.  "Don't stir up trouble for its 
own sake, Jame."
     Rinvar raised his hand in a gesture of surrender.  "I'll be good, Lew."
     "When are they shutting down Blackstone?"
     "To new teams only, remember--the old ones will keep fighting if their managers 
want to pay the fees.  This week.  Maybe next week.  Hard to be sure, when you travel 
from Alastari to anywhere else, there's a time distortion effect.  But probably this 
week.  Same operating rules as Dwes Eg (82):  no new teams in, but the old ones can 
recruit new members.  New teams will go to the new place--"  Zeb Karan cast a look of 
enquiry around the room.
     "Jasper Gulch," a steward said.
     "Right.  New teams will go to Jasper Gulch.  I'm not sure the day for it, probably 
'opposite' Blackstone in the schedule.  A regular two-week cycle.  Teams can be 
transfered in from regular arenas, I suppose, but not OUT."
     Voth nodded.  "We can work with this."
     "Beats not working."
