                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Hullo again!

ADOLPH EICHMANN (84-37835) (35-29-0,195) of MY MAIN MEN challenged TOLAIS DEEPHEART 
(42-1620) (164-163-0,215) of HIGHLANDERS.  ADOLPH EICHMANN was  devastated by TOLAIS 
DEEPHEART in a 3 minute Challenge fight.  Hmm.  Ms Deepheart remains the top-rated 
Wall of Steel in Darkholm, and the overall popularity leader.  Life of that party, 
that girl.

STING (10-429) (28-25-2,180) of THE HOLY LEGION challenged OMAHA (42-4796) (25-13-
1,195) of DEALER'S CHOICE.  STING handily defeated OMAHA in an action packed 1 minute 
one-sided Challenge match.  Omaha is the most challenged fighter this turn, as well as 
being the most successful Aimed Blow practitioner.

E AHO LAULA (21-4224) (75-44-0,324) of WIDER IS BETTER fought ZAKAU (5-4623) (79-85-
0,217) of JOHNS.  E AHO LAULA bested ZAKAU in a popular 3 minute Title contest.  Mr. 
Laula has retained his title, as well as the honor of being our top Lunger. 

MIKEL (6-6190) (61-69-3,197) of THE LADY'S LIST fought GLAMDRING (33-2328) (39-25-
1,166) of OBSIDIAN HALL.  MIKEL overpowered GLAMDRING in a crowd pleasing 1 minute 
mismatched match.  Mikel is top Slasher.  

WYVERN (33-2457) (32-39-0,186) of OBSIDIAN HALL fought PHILTHRY (42-2079) (63-53-
0,168) of HIGHLANDERS.  WYVERN vanquished PHILTHRY in a 1 minute mismatched fight.  
For that, Philthry was voted least popular this turn, although he is also the top-
ranked Parry-Strike.  Wyvern is our top Basher.

RYANATOR (33-3462) (40-36-0,171) of OBSIDIAN HALL fought KODICROME (84-37861) (20-15-
1,132) of IN THE LONG RUN.  RYANATOR beat KODICROME in a crowd pleasing 4 minute 
brawl.  Ryanator is the best Parry-Strike fighter.

ZEUS (62-4010) (55-34-0,160) of LEGION OF LEGEND fought CAPTURED CUTPURSE (104-6) (0-
0-0,130) of  .  ZEUS defeated CAPTURED CUTPURSE in an action packed 1 minute melee.  I 
should hope so!  The poor fellow volunteered for arena duty this turn, rather than 
jail time.  At least he'll probably think twice before... well, he didn't actually cut 
a purse.  He helped himself to a pocket.  My pocket, if you must know. 

PELIS THE TRUE (42-3469) (55-85-1,134) of HIGHLANDERS fought FATALITY (7-5820) (45-42-
0,109) of BRUTAL LEGION.  PELIS THE TRUE vanquished FATALITY in a popular 1 minute 
uneven duel.  Despite losing, Fatality is our highest ranked Striker.

CONCRETE GOD (18-6429) (20-16-0,56) of MOTLEY CRUE fought BRUNHYLDA (33-8082) (23-11-
1,71) of OBSIDIAN HALL.  CONCRETE GOD lost to BRUNHYLDA in a 2 minute duel.  Brunhylda 
has been voted Darkholm's fashion leader this turn.

MAN-MOUNTAIN (7-3853) (20-13-1,58) of WASTELAND II fought COCKY SPECTATOR (104-3) (0-
0-0,0) of  .  MAN-MOUNTAIN was defeated by COCKY SPECTATOR in an exciting 1 minute 
fight.  Man-Mountain is the winner of the spring carnival pie-eating contest.

According to Zontani Sharp Eyes, The Holy Legion are avoiding Legion of Legend.  Well 
done.
 
And that, fellow Darkholmsians, is the extent of my news.  Just FYI, any watermelons 
you want to grow should be potted by now, in a room with good light, since the growing 
season here on the Isle isn't terribly long.  Cheerio!

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Tolais Deepheart -- Yes I was, very much so.  Unfortunately I am a victim of my 
manager's failures.  Apparently I can't improve in several areas while he felt I still 
had room to do so.  He's corrected our plan.  Now I am spending my spare time throwing 
around large boulders. -- Sting

To All -- Several of my retired ADM warriors (currently 18 in total) have let me know 
they still "have some fight" left in them, and are looking for new homes.  These 
warriors range in development level all across the ADM spectrum--from the Primus class 
all the way down to a few brand new invitees.  Also, please note that some of these 
warriors are quite high in quality with good fighting rhythms and weapons, and blessed 
with significant "skill luck" at creation.  There is a lot of variety as 6 different 
fighting styles are represented. If you are interested in information about these fine 
gladiators you can look for my ad posted on the "Forums - Duel2" (in the "Trade" 
section), contact me on "Chatzy-Duel2," or email me at: chuck.buys_and_sells@yahoo.com 
(note the underscores after "buys" and "and").  Please help these retirees sharpen 
their blades once again in the name of Sheila Greywand!  

And...as always...HAVE A GREAT DUEL!
