                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     General Benjimane Dayspring filed the report at the Grey Tower, anxious to get
the entire business over with.  Jhadzia and Chi'en were waiting for him outside the
tower; with the rest of the companions he'd spent the last two years with already at
the White Tower in Andorak.  They were all to be debriefed in Princess Samarra's
office by Khalli Dyr'eel, Spymaster of Andorak and King Mickeal's Chief Councilor,
Arrion Bohr.  He was even more anxious to get back to Sammy and discover where things
stood between them.
     At one time, he had thought they were destined to be together; the most envied
couple in all of Andoria.  He had spent years courting her, waiting for her to fall
in love with him, and when she finally had they had begun a life of bliss, happier
than he'd ever imagined possible.
     Then, it all fell apart around him.  King Rylian had ordered Samarra to marry
the Karnhorn, Prince Zarhed of Jurine, to seal a treaty with the rival kingdom.
Benjimane's world had come crashing down around him.  He then had an on-again off-
again affair with the Princess, with her husband's full knowledge if not his full
approval.  The respect the young prince held for his wife had diminished over years
of her wanting another man.
     Benjimane's respect for himself dwindled away as he viewed their actions in a
more and more dishonorable light.  He began to take on only the most perilous
missions, hoping somehow to find himself in the dangers he faced; hoping to restore
his lost sense of self that was so closely tied to his honor.  Finally, he'd accepted
the mission that had kept them all away for so long.  At long last, he thought he'd
figured out who he really was...the man outside the constraints the "storybook" honor
he had wrapped himself in.
     He walked back out into the sunlight to find Jhadzia and Chi'en already mounted.
He could tell by the way their horses were agitated under them that they were eager
to be off.  He quickly mounted Starmantle, the warhorse that had taken him nearly two
decades of careful breeding to produce, and with a nod to the others headed off away
from the Grey Tower.  It would be late afternoon before they reached Andorak, and he
wanted to get the debriefing over with as quickly as possible.

<more to follow next cycle>

 ***********************************************************************************

     Well, it looks like we are getting some story time after all, Andorak!  How
about some volunteers for the New Adventures of Andorak?  Any takers?  If so, please
send a self-addressed e-mail to khallidyreel@aol.com and I'll work you in.  Census
information not a must, but helps.
     Let's take a look at the very few challenges for the cycle, then I'll have a few
more words for you as we enter the New Year:
     PEPSI (68-8510) (58-30-0,206) of OVERWORLD challenged PUSSYCAT (14-3701) (55-62-
1,212) of THE DOGHOUSE.  PEPSI devastated PUSSYCAT in a action packed 1 minute
mismatched Challenge fight.  Up 6.  Seems like whenever there's a Pepsi challenge,
Pepsi wins.  Doesn't matter who the opponent is.  Congrats to Pepsi on a well fought
and honorable duel!
     VISION (26-1573) (53-30-2,193) of HEADBANGERS challenged SALINE LAMORAK (11-
4261) (38-65-0,204) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  VISION viciously subdued SALINE LAMORAK in a
popular 8 minute Challenge match.  Up 11.  Another victory for Vision, who also seems
to be doing a lot of winning.  Another loss for Armalias Skyhawk's unattended masses.
I guess I should be glad he's not paying attention and running all bloody like he
used to do in Tarrgir back in...uh-oh...what was that?
     RED CEDAR (44-2451) (34-33-0,186) of SHERWOOD FOREST challenged WARLOCK (66-
2473) (72-114-2,188) of X-FORCE.  RED CEDAR viciously subdued WARLOCK in a popular 5
minute gory Challenge contest.  Up 2.  Thank you, Red Cedar, for the issue of this
challenge...and congratulations for the victory.  You were certainly giving up a lot
of fights in this one.  Drinks are on me!
     SWEET TOOTH (11-3248) (25-22-0,162) of GERFEL'S FRIENDS challenged SMITH (14-
1282) (50-100-4,175) of MIKES.  SWEET TOOTH demolished SMITH in a 3 minute mismatched
Challenge competition.  Up 13.  Will any of our challengers lose this cycle?  A big
win for Sweet Tooth, keeping Smith from climbing any closer to a .500 record.  Of
course, he'd have to win a record number of fights in a row to pull off that kind of
turn around.
     HOMELESS PRINCE (22-6012) (31-19-1,173) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged GOKU (46-
3655) (36-38-2,203) of DRAGONBALL Z.  HOMELESS PRINCE was vanquished by GOKU in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Up 30, for our biggest challenge of the cycle!
Homeless really went for it, showing us all what he's made of, as Goku veritably cut
the man to ribbons!  You could see just about everything inside the Homeless one,
including what he'd had for breakfast.  A word of advice:  blood on a purple robe
will stain just as badly as it does the white sands of Andorak.
     And the battle for the King's Sentinel:
     MICHAEL HONORBLADE (11-3300) (106-60-0,311) of KNIGHTS OF VIRTUE fought JESUS
(82-5459) (47-30-3,208) of RISEN FROM THE DEAD.  MICHAEL HONORBLADE viciously subdued
JESUS in a popular 4 minute gory Title duel.  A random matchup, with a difference of
103 point in favor of the winner.  Jesus is lucky not to be rising from the dead yet
again after this mismatch.  Gory indeed.  Congratulations to the winner, who will no
doubt favor us with a Column next time out.
     Well, I'm looking forward to hearing the Companions of the Great Glacier give
their report.  There will no doubt be lots of little tidbits of information for all
of us to enjoy.  And what's going to happen with the General and the Princess,
anyway?  Stay tuned for the next exciting episode of, Andorak!!!

                              Khalli Dyr'eel,
                                   Spymaster of Andorak

THE DEAD                    W   L  K TEAM NAME              SLAIN BY              TURN

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Vision -- Nice job getting the throne and posting a column the other turn.  If
Sentinel doesn't write one next turn, you certainly have my blessing to steal it back
from him.  Unless of course an Andorian gets there first and writes a column, such as
Puerco or I. -- Adie
P.S.  I was a bit surprised myself not to get a column from Crystal.

Homeless Prince -- Yes, I am very quick.  It's one of my strongest assets, but by no
means my only one.  How about you? -- Colwyn

SOV -- You know, the train-up gods probably just roll dice to determine whether you
manage one in a turn.  You're just throwing away money by sending it to the
Commission.  They won't even use it to renovate the arena.  That's what girl scout
cookie fund raisers are for! -- Adie
P.S.  Train-up gods, hmm, does that make TUGs to go with the RUGs and MUGs?

Skelos -- A bit biased are we?  Not all Aruaki are heroes, but I can guarantee that
each one might have the potential to be one.  I have seen a few myself actually.  Sir
Richard in fact is one, and he is of House Olharin...a lion shape shifter. -- Adie

Manager, Sentinel, anybody -- Speaking of train-up gods, do you thing warriors can be
natural trainers?  I think I heard it referred to a few times years ago as 'Fireball'

trainers.  You know, something born with them that gives them an edge in training,
kind of like some people are gifted learners?  I don't really believe it, though I
have seen a couple warriors of mine nail 11-12 trains in ADM VERY quickly. -- Adie

Zebrawood -- A familiar experience. -- Schendirk

The Fratsfan Chef -- A dining experience.  But I prefer the simple things, you know.
Starting with sushi-grade tuna.... -- Pussycat

Lukarian Lamorak -- Well, thanks for the skills, anyway. -- Minor Miner

Connor MacLeod -- You don't look it. -- Skelos

Crazy Horse -- I STILL don't think a horse should be allowed into the arena. -- Daisy
January

Carnage XIX -- Too bad I didn't kill you.  I haven't been doing a very good job of
pleasing you-know-who lately. -- Deadpool

Positive -- To be scummed at this level...just terrible. -- Saline

Great Bear -- Careful...I might start to think I can win in Andorak.  Best of luck to
you. -- Vajra

Pronto Pongo -- What kind of name is that, anyway?  Ardiventi?  Karnhorn?  What are
you? -- Blackrazor

Pepsi -- Beat'n by a soft drink.  Ye 'ave no idea how much that 'urts. -- Bruenor

Michael Honorblade -- It was an honor to battle with a warrior as old and respected
as yourself.  Shouldn't you be in Primus soon? -- Goku

Gimethatshield -- I DON'T HAVE A DAMN SHIELD ALREADY!!! -- Warlock

John Rocker -- Beaten by a racist.  Pig. -- Warpath (Rirorni, if you must know)

Duncan -- I once knew a man named Duncan.  I never like him, either. -- Talisman

Intendrid -- Nice fight.  If you like the O'Reilly Factor. -- Sands

Kinky -- That's just sick. -- Wolverine

Dis-Embowel -- I think not.  I will avenge that loss. -- Iriador

Hummel -- You realize, of course, that you never had a chance against me, don't you?
I train in Aruak City. -- Nixie

Minor Miner -- I can't believe I just beat up a kid.  Medic!?! -- Lukarian

Skelos -- I'm Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod.  I'm here for the beer. -- Connor
P.S.  What did you think I was here for?

Sha'uri -- I've been in Eligibles for some time now, but my manager has never had
much success helping me with strategy (I'm his first PR to make it to the Isle).  Any
pointers you'd care to share? -- Saline

Pussycat -- Yes, I'm here...and I'm hungry. -- Wolverine

24 December 2004
Due to requests, the Turf War IV will be postponed until turn 225 (approx May/June
2005).  Sorry about the inconvenience. -- Baphomet, host of TW 4

12 January 2005
On Jhans turn number 476 (due on Feb. 16, 2005) the Second Annual kLk St. Valentine's
Massacre Kill Contest will begin.  The rules are simple; the team with the most kills
on the last turn wins.  Last year's winner was Shocking Toad.  Can he repeat?  Could
DOOMcorps crush all challengers?  Will the kLk prevail?  Or will you be the
independent manager to show that alliances aren't all that?  Come on to Jhans and
let's find out!
     Prizes are:  1st.  Renaming of a Dark Arena monster and five roll-up
                        certificates or $25.00 deposited in your account.
                  2nd.  Renaming of a Stand-In monster.
     Come on and celebrate the Delarquan way!
