                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Warriors of Darkholm,

     Welcome to another issue of the Darkholm Sporting Journal.  I'm glad to see Mahi
Mahi still here as our Keeper of the Runeblade although he FAILED TO WRITE A COLUMN.
He was this turn's most challenged warrior and who knows, maybe Voldric the Blue
would have written us a good column next turn if that worthy Talcaman had won the
title fight.  VOLDRIC THE BLUE (18-6259) (55-42-0,243) of THUNDR + LITENING
challenged MAHI MAHI (18-4899) (77-58-1,368) of BIG MEAN FISH.  VOLDRIC THE BLUE was
devastated by MAHI MAHI in a 2 minute Challenge Title contest.
     In a flurry of weird redundancy, Evil Dead (guild #15 in today's rankings) was
avoided by Dead Evil (12).
     Nobody died.  Pity.
     Oh let's see, there were two TV challenges, both victorious:
        Floating Swiss of Thingsinpug'scooler vs. T-Bone of Dead Evil; F. Swiss in 1.
        Grizzly of Totem vs. He-Man of Tormentors; Grizzly in 2.
     Once again, in the absence of Hansel or that worthless slacker Daion, Lucretia
Borgia of remains our overall popularity leader.  SYPHILIS (19-3085) (81-47-2,208) of
THAT SUCKS! challenged LUCRETIA BORGIA (4-3563) (88-127-0,207) of LETHAL LADIES.
SYPHILIS was bested by LUCRETIA BORGIA in an action packed 3 minute Challenge brawl.
Lucretia is a TP, you know, but she's violent enough to be very well liked anyway.
     This turn's most popular warrior was Blinky, who was perceived as getting
scummed.  AGONY (21-3413) (33-11-0,153) of TORMENTORS fought BLINKY (18-2683) (70-
110-4,176) of SHEPHERDS.  AGONY savagely defeated BLINKY in an action packed 7 minute
bloody conflict.
     And then there was John Ashcroft, a newbie who somehow managed to lose to a more
inept newbie...JOHN ASHCROFT (24-4355) (16-5-2,89) of DOH! fought SLEEPLESS PARANOIA
(82-2252) (8-11-1,63) of PARENTHOOD.  JOHN ASHCROFT was overpowered by SLEEPLESS
PARANOIA in a 1 minute one-sided struggle.  Tsk, tsk.
     The Tricoran Patience plummeted in the ranks today as she got matched against a
Debby Tonte look-alike (and fight-alike) and managed to lose!  Oh, the shame!
PATIENCE (51-4949) (16-23-1,48) of MIGHTY MORALS fought DEBBY TONTE (104-2) (20-30-
0,30) of Arena Stand-Ins.  PATIENCE was handily defeated by DEBBY TONTE in a 1 minute
mismatched contest.  Patience, you must challenge boldly and redeem yourself at once!
     That's all.  I know it's way short, I'm sorry.  I just know that many of you are
really pressed for time and I didn't want you to have to spend too much of it reading
this report.  Until next turn, my friends, remember to do your research before you
sign on the dotted line.  If someone is too anxious to sell you something in a hurry,
there is probably something very wrong with it.

                                                         Desiree (not my real name)

BWD -- Very impressive run with Mahi Mahi.  I'm curious to see how long you can stay at the top of Darkholm, with a striker no less. -- Sultan

Syphilis -- Nice downchallenge!  Some of us youngsters don't like when warriors try to (pat their records) on us.  So you got what you deserve -- your ass kicked!  Slash Master -- T-Bone

Blinky -- Grampa only one parry skill!  You might as well have killed me again. -- Smiles
P.S.  You almost did!

Clouds Away -- Did all I could to avoid Vinya's fate.  Even avoided you.  But alas it was all for not.  (Kind of expected an early death.)  Stats were:  15-7-13-17-9-6-17.  Att was at Par.  But Def was Par +2 skills.  Could have been a little lucky, but n

Shiny Penny -- You should be GLAD that my typist doesn't have time to do JUSTICE to the comments I would make to you if I had the CHANCE. -- Life of Osksi

Silas -- Why, thank you for that challenge, sir. -- Tolais Deepheart

Eli -- Aw, gee, you were supposed to lose, you know.  (sigh)  I guess I gotta try harder. -- Maginot Mike

Lady Stardust -- Mars must be a very strange town. -- Mucker

To All Managers -- I would like to take this time to announce that my alliance, The
Association, is no more.  Due to the dead weight managers of the alliance and their
lack of participation, DarkSpirit and I have formed a new alliance:  The Firm.  We
have taken on two members so far and are looking for a few more.  If you would like
to find out more about The Firm, you can diplo Dark Spirit, Unknowns XX in arena 15
or myself, Sungod, Sadists F2FII in arena 62.

26 July 2003
     Citizens of Alastari, a bright dawn has risen.  While you slept, a pernicious
force has entered the once-fair City of Aruak.  It fought alongside their treasured
warriors, it drank with their fans, and it slept with their women.  Now the masks are
coming off.
     Warriors, be afraid...be very afraid.  After years of Andorian managers ranting
that Aruak is the safest city in Alastari, the Frothingslosh Syndicate has selected
Aruak City as the home for its next epic 'contest'--Murder by Numbers II.  Our spies
have selected the warriors for extermination, and the executioners have had several
months to prepare.  Now a new age of darkness will descend upon Aruak, as the
Syndicate and its allies bring an entirely new level of competition to the arena!
Downchallenges!  Assassinations!  Small poodles as hors d'oeuvres!
     The Murder by Numbers II 'rules' will be announced next cycle.  However, we
invite all managers, from all corners of Alastari, to come to Aruak City and take
part...in one way or another.  Help defend the honor of a long heralded haven for the
pure, or join the forces of change in their siege of the ice-cream and cake
stronghold of the Dukes of Nerf-Dueling!
     This exercise is not for either the faint of heart or the weak willed.  Blood
will flow, brains will leak, and beer will be chugged.  Either way, we welcome you
with open arms and gleaming blades.
     This public service announcement has been brought to you by Frothingslosh Epic
Contests (tm), the number 86, and the letter 'K'.

The Frothingslosh Syndicate
