                      Reflections by the Keeper of the Runeblade

Fellow Willow Beachians,

     Hey, there.  It's Tolais Deepheart again.
     Rabbits ate the new buds off all of my baby fruit trees!  And in some cases the
bark, too, probably dooming the trees.  I'm going to put little fences around them
and see if they'll manage to come back.  Damn it!  I could do a bigger fence and let
the dogs in there, but one of our dogs is a plant molester too.  That's why there are
no fruit trees, or other such items, in the dog yard.  Argh!
     I've offered her lettuce and broccoli.  The dog, you know.  She just turns up
her nose.  Guess she prefers something that is currently trying to grow.  Again,
argh!
     I fought Mark, as I often do.  It wasn't a bad fight, just quite repetitive.  Oh
well.
     I tried to convince Philthry to pee in a jar so I can drip it around all of my
trees.  Maybe that would mark the trees as orc territory and keep the rabbits away.
No luck, though.  He just laughed.
     That's all I've got to say.  See ya!

Tolais Deepheart

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Greetings, ghosts!

     That must be what we are, right?  Since this is a ghost town?  Or at least, a
ghost arena.

     Tolais Deepheart is our Keeper of the Runeblade, again.  TOLAIS DEEPHEART (42-
1620) (147-153-0,216) of HIGHLANDERS fought MEN WORKING (38-4189) (85-248-1,212) of
JUST BECAUSE.  TOLAIS DEEPHEART bested MEN WORKING in a crowd pleasing 1 minute Title
fight.  Top Wall of Steel, top Basher.
     LENNON (5-4087) (53-52-3,208) of JOHNS fought FATALITY (7-5820) (37-23-0,176) of
BRUTAL LEGION.  LENNON vanquished FATALITY in an exciting 1 minute uneven battle.
Top Slasher, top Striker.
     SATCHEL (6-6215) (57-52-2,189) of THE LADY'S LIST fought BLIND BEGGAR (104-26)
(40-35-0,200) of The Invincibles.  SATCHEL was overpowered by BLIND BEGGAR in a 1 
minute mismatched duel.  Hmm... that was kind of pathetic for a reasonably good
fighter.
     MARK (5-4088) (75-161-3,191) of JOHNS fought ZEUS (62-4010) (44-18-0,154) of
LEGION OF LEGEND.  MARK devastated ZEUS in a 2 minute brutal one-sided fight.  Mark
is top Parry-Lunger.
     CLIVE (6-5215) (59-62-5,206) of THE LADY'S LIST fought DIRK CHOLERA (104-29)
(80-50-4,250) of The Invincibles.  CLIVE was devastated by DIRK CHOLERA in a popular
1 minute uneven brawl.

     ZAKAU (5-4623) (68-69-0,194) of JOHNS fought SOLACIA (104-24) (68-32-0,225) of
The Invincibles.  ZAKAU was devastated by SOLACIA in a 1 minute mismatched match.
Zakau is top Lunger, and Solacia is too dangerous for this arena.
     PELIS THE TRUE (42-3469) (46-67-0,159) of HIGHLANDERS fought HOFFA (5-4299) (25-
101-0,149) of JOHNS.  PELIS THE TRUE handily defeated HOFFA in an action packed 1
minute uneven fight.
     ZANE GREY (21-4810) (55-89-2,176) of AUTHORS fought M. CHARDINEE (104-8) (0-0-
0,110) of The Invincibles.  ZANE GREY lost to M. CHARDINEE in a popular 1 minute
gruesome duel.
     MIKEL (6-6190) (46-57-3,120) of THE LADY'S LIST fought OLD SAILMAKER (104-7) (0-
0-0,110) of The Invincibles.  MIKEL vanquished OLD SAILMAKER in an exciting 1 minute
one-sided fight.
     2 + 2 = 4 (38-4190) (58-175-1,135) of JUST BECAUSE fought KHALHUMS DWARF (104-
10) (0-0-0,150) of The Invincibles.  2 + 2 = 4 slimly won victory over KHALHUMS DWARF
in a popular 5 minute brutal bout.  Mr. + 4 is our top Total Parry.

     GAR & BRILL (38-4252) (96-173-2,131) of JUST BECAUSE fought ANGRY BOOKIE (104-
11) (15-10-0,150) of The Invincibles.  GAR & BRILL subdued ANGRY BOOKIE in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute bloody competition.  Gar is both our Overall Popularity Leader and
this turn's favorite.
     JUSTIN (6-6179) (41-65-3,130) of THE LADY'S LIST fought CAPTURED CUTPURSE (104-
6) (0-0-0,130) of The Invincibles.  JUSTIN savagely defeated CAPTURED CUTPURSE in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute gory match.
     HOFFA (5-4622) (44-93-0,28) of JOHNS fought PHILTHRY (42-2079) (47-42-0,81) of
HIGHLANDERS.  HOFFA was overcome by PHILTHRY in a popular 3 minute conflict.  Philtry
is top Parry-Striker.  And I heartily applaud his policy of not peeing on trees!
     HOFFA (5-4348) (27-164-0,49) of JOHNS fought BONHAM (21-7738) (16-9-1,68) of
MASTERS OF MELODY.  HOFFA was vanquished by BONHAM in an action packed 1 minute
mismatched bout.  Bonham is our arena's top Aimed Blow, long may he wave.
     ALOYICIUS (6-5045) (34-69-2,45) of THE LADY'S LIST fought COCKY SPECTATOR (104-
3) (0-0-0,0) of The Invincibles.  ALOYICIUS viciously subdued COCKY SPECTATOR in a
crowd pleasing 2 minute bloody bout.  Nothing to see, move along.

     So that's it?  I think it is!  Have a good two weeks then, and haunt away!
