                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Who let the Snide Clemens golem in here?  You're all a bunch of sissies, but you 
don't deserve that.  No one deserves that.  Well, maybe Home Guard.
     Second set of fights in the new year, which bears a strong resemblence to the 
old one, let me tell you.
     The notes tell me that Joe Satriani got the most challenges.  That speaks well 
for somebody's ambition.  I salute those who tried for the title.
     Warckers avoided Kellumbo's Kids more than any other team avoided any other 
team.  No, I take that back.  Because of the way the golems do this, the facts are:
     1)  Kellumbo's Kids got the most avoids.
     2)  Of the teams avoiding them Warckers did it the most.  This might not mean as 
much as it looks like.  Or then again, it might.  Who can tell?  Who wants to tell?
     There were thirty-six fights, involving, among other gladiators, four standbys 
sent over by the College of Mimes.  The Mimes are out to GET us all, you know.  Be 
warned.
     Thirty-six fights, eight of them challenge matches, and one of those challenges 
a TV.  Good work on somebody's part.
     The longest fight was four minutes, but there were several who tied for that.  
Hmm, I make it five at four minutes each.  Ridiculous.  Why not get together and have 
one long fight and four really short ones?

     Here are the "long" matches (note that the longest challenge match was only 
THREE minutes):
     SONIC TACO (30-4337) (26-21-1,121) of TRIP OUT fought NIXIE SEASPRITE (11-4992) 
(38-40-0,142) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  SONIC TACO was defeated by NIXIE SEASPRITE in an 
action packed 4 minute duel.  I've heard of sonic thisses and sonic thats, but this 
is the first time I've heard a taco spend the whole four minutes yelling.  Loudly.  
Nixie was a shivering jelly at the end of the, ah, serenade.
     GUESS MY STYLE (40-3407) (31-15-0,175) of SUPERIOR FORCES fought 0002 (82-12390) 
(5-0-0,101) of OCT 2001 1.  GUESS MY STYLE luckily beat 0002 in an exciting 4 minute 
bloody fray.  I guess Triple Oh-one isn't as hot a number as Double Oh-seven?  Or 
maybe there's something about having a number instead of a name that is 
disheartening.
     BLACKRAZOR (11-4091) (51-89-1,151) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought RACING TURTLE (74-
3180) (17-12-0,112) of SECOND CHANCES.  BLACKRAZOR was savagely defeated by RACING 
TURTLE in an action packed 4 minute fight.  I loved this one.  That savage, vicious 
racing turtle!  Relentless is the name for this dude.
     SNAKE CHARMER (22-6169) (37-14-0,182) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS fought PUSSYCAT (14-
3701) (66-77-1,203) of THE DOGHOUSE.  SNAKE CHARMER unbelievably bested PUSSYCAT in 
an exciting 4 minute brutal fight.  I don't know why people found this hard to 
believe.  I believe it.  Of course, I saw it, and that always makes believing easier.
     CADDY JACKKNIFE (11-4288) (41-19-1,227) of GERFEL'S FRIENDS fought GOKU (46-
3655) (48-52-2,245) of DRAGONBALL Z.  CADDY JACKKNIFE was viciously subdued by GOKU 
in a popular 4 minute brutal fight.  A good try by the over-matched Caddy, but 
naturally Goku won.  Experience counts.  It's like that old saying about age and 
cunning, and youth and enthusiasm.

     One death, and I warn you, there will be TROUBLE over this.
     DREAM CATCHER (74-3177) (21-12-0,59) of SECOND CHANCES fought OHRLAM (105-2) (0-
0-0,60) of the College of Mimes.  DREAM CATCHER slaughtered OHRLAM in an exciting 1 
minute brutal mismatched fight.  It won't do the least bit of good to tell the Chief 
Mime that anyone entering the arena is taking a chance on death.  He, or as the case 
might be she, is not going to take "it happens" for an answer.

     And the challenge matches:
     LEADFOOT (40-3516) (23-15-0,168) of TACO GODS challenged DARK CHAMPION (4-5689) 
(26-24-0,166) of BLACK & BLUE.  Down 2.  LEADFOOT vanquished DARK CHAMPION in a 1 
minute uneven Challenge fight.  I am, of course, officially sorry to see a Delarquan 
lose to a dastardly Andorian, but the Really Dark Champion of Jhelum will be glad, 
and one likes to have demons happy.  It tends to lengthen one's life.  Although it 
sometimes makes things more... interesting at the same time.
     KINKY (40-2645) (26-15-0,171) of THE URGE challenged DIESEL (26-4277) (26-39-
0,178) of WARCKERS.  Up 7.  KINKY was handily defeated by DIESEL in a 1 minute 
gruesome uneven Challenge melee.  And what did you expect, Kinky?  Experience COUNTS, 
you idiot.  Or are you one of those REALLY kinky types who enjoys pain?  Gods know, 
you Zensovians are strange anyway.
     GREAT BEAR (74-2851) (30-21-0,199) of TOTEM challenged CONNOR MACLEOD (11-5532) 
(45-33-0,201) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II.  Up 2.  GREAT BEAR devastated CONNOR MACLEOD in 
a 1 minute one-sided Challenge competition.  They tell me--the stewards and 
orderlies--that after it was all over and Macleod was carried out, the Bear tried to 
eat him.  Now, THAT would have been something to see!  Great Bear versus the 
Infirmary Staff.

     SWEET SWEAT (71-3477) (23-21-1,193) of SCENT OF A WOMAN challenged REAL GUANO 
(75-3088) (29-10-1,212) of SECOND CHANCES.  Up 19.  SWEET SWEAT was vanquished by 
REAL GUANO in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Naturally.  How could it have 
been otherwise?
     VISION (26-1573) (68-41-2,198) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged TALISMAN 
SHIELDGUARD (11-4304) (61-65-0,206) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  Up 8.  VISION luckily beat 
TALISMAN SHIELDGUARD in a crowd pleasing 3 minute Challenge match.  Was it truly 
luck, or was there superior strategy involved?  Inquiring Minds want to know, so they 
can bet intelligently next time.
     ASEROTH (71-2821) (54-33-0,194) of THE LAST STRAW V challenged SALINE LAMORAK 
(11-4261) (51-78-0,196) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  Up 2.  ASEROTH overpowered SALINE 
LAMORAK in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge duel.  That did not, in fact, look like 
straws that Aseroth was using out there, but I'm not one to argue a little detail 
like that.  Not unless I'm really, really bored, I'm not.

     The one TV challenge (and we expect to see MANY MORE next time, after another 
tourney has passed):
     WOOHOO-WOOHOO! (40-3504) (37-26-0,198) of TACO GODS TV challenged FREE BOX (60-
4964) (33-21-1,223) of BOXES.  Up 25.  WOOHOO-WOOHOO! was bested by FREE BOX in a 
crowd pleasing 1 minute Challenge fight.  Hey, the box may be free, but the win is 
not.  You have to fight for it.

     And for the title, and let me congratulate Gime for caring enough to challenge 
for it:
     GIMETHATSHIELD (26-1306) (69-53-1,218) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged JOE 
SATRIANI (11-4422) (43-37-2,297) of THE HEADCUTTERS II.  Up some ridiculous amount, 
79, I believe.  GIMETHATSHIELD was viciously subdued by JOE SATRIANI in a 2 minute 
Challenge battle.  This was not a surprise, but you'll note that it was not "uneven" 
or "mis-matched."  A salute to both warriors is due here, I believe, and I do salute 
them.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Dream Catcher -- Huh!  Catch me giving YOU a second chance!  The first was bad
enough. -- Daisy January

Ministry -- Oh, gods, five hours for the sermon?  I can't face that kind of thing.
It's too much. -- Minor Miner

Maximus -- So, you're a neutered Harkeny who hates cats, yes?  Bad Boy! -- Pussycat

John Rocker -- "Death by Stupidity"?  Is that referring to you or (wince) to me? --
Schendirk the clear-sighted and depressed

Lukarian Lamorak -- Ah.  This is good. -- Skelos

The Saint -- Fluffy bunny feet?  (blush)  I thought I was dreaming more quietly.
Sorry. -- Daisy January
P.S.  Try Closys II instead of Listerine.  Recommended by my hygienist, available at
Walgreen's, leaves absolutely NO taste in the mouth afterward.

     It's hard to be quiet about fluffy bunny feet. -- The Saint
     P.S.  But I thought it was SUPPOSED to taste like medicine?

The Saint -- Well, there are slip-ons. -- Leeta

     As long as they're not also slip-offs...when you least expect it! -- The Saint

The Saint -- Of course he isn't!  He's a mere golem (not even a "he" in truth), and
it takes a true demon such as myself to really get INTO the Darkness. -- Nestor Khan,
Demonic Dark Champion of Jhelum

     So, a power outage doesn't do it? -- The Saint, who's been in the dark plenty of
     times

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
