                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly FREE BLADES games.  BLASPHEMY caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DREHVIN and was awarded 29 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HELYSE put down THE 
LION KING, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  As is 
fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none 
other than Duelmaster SEKHAT himself.  This time out ABSOLUTION made his bid for the 
throne as he challenged SEKHAT in an all out contest of skill for possession of the 
title!  Although ABSOLUTION made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious SEKHAT.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in 
duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city FREE BLADES.  FREE BLADES, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is FEAR FACTORY, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of ANGELS OF PAIN are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  WAILIN' VAN HALEN 
must really be harboring a grudge against the DEAD WE SUCK guild!  Merciless, 26 
challenged down SAVORY points this week to duel with he.  Few would not have guessed 
the outcome of the bout as SAVORY was overcame by WAILIN' VAN HALEN.  Is this what 
passes for courage in FREE BLADES?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in FREE BLADES.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the 
spires of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

             ATTENTION:  ALL MANAGERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE FACE-TO-FACE

If you plan to attend the Winter Face-to-Face in Phoenix, please let Customer Service 
know.  We will hold your turns for the few days preceding the tourney, starting with 
anything that would mail out on the previous Saturday.  (This means that games due on 
Thursday the 9th (which would mail on Friday) would probably mail to you, but games 
due on the 10th and thereafter will be held and delivered to you at the tournament.  
This way, you won't have to worry about not receiving a critical turn before you 
depart for Newark, and you also don't have to worry about whether you can get a 
reprint before the first turn of the tournament is due.  

See you there!
