                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Twenty-three fights on a gray day at the bottom of the year.  Well, it could be 
worse, I suppose.  Give me a couple of hours and I'll figure out how.  Oh, no, wait, 
I can do it faster, it could be SNOWING.  Brrr!
     But it isn't, so let's take a look at what we've got here.  We've got Kellumbo's 
Kids exercising their Commission-given rights to pick their fights, avoiding the 
Maniacal Tufts and challenging people.  What will they think of next?  Nobody else 
avoided, nobody else challenged.  Well, if that's the way you all want to be about 
it, there it is.
     Wait, I mis-spoke.  The manager of The Plague, sorry I don't have your name at 
my fingertips, was also using his management tools.  Congratulations, sir or madam.
     Warpath got the most challenges.  It must be that target painted on his armor.
     Twenty-three fights, five of them involving standbys, which means forty-one 
active warriors.  This is UP!  Great, really great, keep on doing this, whoever is 
out there.
     Nobody died.
     There were six challenges issued.

     Without further ado (I'm saving the ado for a bigger audience), the fights:
     PARNIAN (41-4138) (18-24-1,55) of WANDERERS fought SOLARIS (46-3759) (24-53-
0,83) of RUBY DRAGONS.  PARNIAN demolished SOLARIS in a 1 minute gruesome one-sided 
fight.  Okay, Parnian has earned a non-slighting comment here.  Ah, let me think.  
How about, "Good work, Parnian, and keep practicing, because this guy was a 
pushover"?
     SATURN (41-3990) (16-53-0,57) of WANDERERS fought SHINORR (105-1) (0-0-0,60) of 
Miscellaneous Staff.  SATURN was handily defeated by SHINORR in a crowd pleasing 2 
minute gory uneven duel.  Saturn should come from a team named Losses R Us.  Can 
nothing be done for this warrior?  For instance, retirement?
     VAN HELSING (11-6338) (35-27-0,116) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II fought TARIN SHARPEYES 
(105-3) (0-0-0,100) of Miscellaneous Staff.  VAN HELSING vanquished TARIN SHARPEYES 
in a 1 minute one-sided match.  That always tweaks Tarin's temper, and he becomes 
Tarin Sharptongue.  Good thing I don't have to hang out with him between fight days.
     LUKARIAN LAMORAK (11-4841) (51-63-1,127) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought FLUTTERLEE 
(41-4153) (23-13-0,113) of WANDERERS.  LUKARIAN LAMORAK viciously subdued FLUTTERLEE 
in a popular 1 minute gory contest.  This is what happens when young warriors climb 
the ranks too fast.  It's called "dues."  Or by some people, "mis-match."  Although I 
note that the clerks didn't call it a mis-match.  Odd.  Maybe there's something TO 
this Flutterlee person.
     WARDUKE (11-5930) (36-45-3,103) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II fought SONIC TACO (30-
4337) (29-24-1,135) of TRIP OUT.  WARDUKE overpowered SONIC TACO in a 1 minute 
mismatched fight.  This is, obviously, not the Most-Challenged Warduke, that's a 
different one.  A tad confusing to have two warriors with the same name here, but 
that does happen.
     KHORNE SHADOWSPAWN (46-3809) (41-31-1,152) of RUBY DRAGONS fought BERYL (105-26) 
(0-0-0,181) of Miscellaneous Staff.  KHORNE SHADOWSPAWN was overpowered by BERYL in 
an exciting 1 minute one-sided match.  And no doubt this comes under the heading of 
"Was my face red!" for Khorne.  And, yep, as I look more closely (opera glasses), it 
IS red.

     SANDS (11-4123) (58-101-3,177) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought DEATH FOG (45-4017) 
(33-16-0,147) of SUPERIOR FORCES.  SANDS was devastated by DEATH FOG in a 1 minute 
one-sided brawl.  Interesting, I thought death fogs were outlawed as "proscribed 
weapons of war," not that anyone listens when they REALLY want to make war.  But the 
key question here, to my mind, is, Did Sands get buriend in the sands?  And if so, 
how do you separate him out again?  Or should we even try?
     VAJRA VALMEJAR (11-4928) (49-60-0,192) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought HUMMEL (14-
1404) (67-128-2,169) of MIKES.  VAJRA VALMEJAR was overcome by HUMMEL in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute bout.  This is the life of storage arena:  Fights between fossils 
and graybeards, and nobody paying attention except me, and me only to sneer.  Okay, 
sneering is, perhaps, a little unkind, a dirty job, one might even say, but 
somebody's got to do it.  So why not me?  It can be fun.  Trust me on this.
     CONNOR MACLEOD (11-5532) (49-50-0,184) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II fought SOLAR SISTER 
(71-5609) (27-10-0,193) of THE FURIOUS FIVE.  CONNOR MACLEOD lost to SOLAR SISTER in 
a crowd pleasing 2 minute gruesome bout.  Never fight with a sister, Connor, they 
don't fight fair.  I've been told it's a "sister thing," and I believe it.  You 
should see MY sister.
     GOKU (46-3655) (63-58-2,194) of DRAGONBALL Z fought MEYK (105-24) (0-0-0,250) of 
Miscellaneous Staff.  GOKU savagely defeated MEYK in a crowd pleasing 2 minute gory 
conflict.  Easy for the crowd to be pleased, they don't have to put up with Meyk 
stomping around the office making unsupportable statements about the conduct of the 
match.
     CADDY JACKKNIFE (11-4288) (50-29-1,190) of GERFEL'S FRIENDS fought TALISMAN 
SHIELDGUARD (11-4304) (66-81-0,198) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  CADDY JACKKNIFE bested 
TALISMAN SHIELDGUARD in an exciting 3 minute bloody battle.  So, the jackknife is 
more powerful than the talisman?  This is good to know:  adventurers take note.  
Compact and easily carried, too, although not on airplanes.  Ah, but you don't know 
what airplanes are, do you?  Cherish your good fortune in that!

     SMITH (14-1282) (70-127-4,186) of MIKES fought SALINE LAMORAK (11-4261) (63-87-
0,203) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  SMITH was demolished by SALINE LAMORAK in a crowd 
pleasing 3 minute mismatched match.  Not to be wondered at.  We all know how 
corrosive saltwater can be.
     MICHAEL HONORBLADE (11-3300) (141-72-0,226) of KNIGHTS OF VIRTUE fought BRUENOR 
BATTLEHAMMER (67-917) (113-87-3,190) of FORGOTTEN REALMS.  MICHAEL HONORBLADE was 
handily defeated by BRUENOR BATTLEHAMMER in a 1 minute bout.  I suspect there may be 
some dark comment on the times concealed in this, but this is not the evening for me 
to delve after dark comments.  You'll have to imagine your own.
     MONICA VIRTUESHIELD (11-3208) (158-62-1,215) of KNIGHTS OF VIRTUE fought POETIC 
JUICE (66-2975) (47-35-0,188) of ANDORIAN UNIVERSITY.  MONICA VIRTUESHIELD vanquished 
POETIC JUICE in an exciting 1 minute one-sided fight.  And without even resorting to 
limericks!  This is indeed remarkable.  For other reasons, too, since I'm being PAID 
to remark, but... ah, well.  I won't call Monica a graybeard, since it is clearly of 
the finest golden hue, but isn't it time she moved on?  Don't ask me where, I'm not a 
travel agent.  But we really need something to challenge these, ah, very experienced 
warriors.
     LUCIAS CLAY (22-6359) (32-24-0,223) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS fought NIXIE SEASPRITE 
(11-4992) (49-50-0,208) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  LUCIAS CLAY slimly won victory over 
NIXIE SEASPRITE in an action packed 2 minute fight.  Was Lucius slim?  Was Nixie?  I 
hear that water-dwellers put on fat in the autumn, in order to provide insulation 
against the icy waters of winter.  Not an enticing image, but one must be practical, 
I suppose, since neither is it enticing to think of a seasprite blue and shivering 
with cold.  Are they subject to hypothermia, I wonder?
     IRIADOR (50-2481) (56-37-2,250) of DRUID'S GROVE fought MEYK (105-24) (0-0-
0,250) of Miscellaneous Staff.  IRIADOR won victory over MEYK in an action packed 2 
minute duel.  And here is Meyk losing again.  He's a loser.  We all know that.  
Except him.

     GRANDPA RAT (22-6549) (22-8-1,79) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged MARS (41-3989) 
(16-8-0,63) of WANDERERS.  Down 16.  GRANDPA RAT was devastated by MARS in a 1 minute 
mismatched Challenge match.  A mis-judgment, Grandpa?  It happens.  You find a 
warrior who looks easy, and... he isn't.  Such is life in the arena.
     BLIND GIRL (22-6041) (24-7-0,90) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged LURLINE GRACE 
(41-4164) (15-12-0,56) of WANDERERS.  Down 34.  Is this an effort to generate 
personals?  If so, it's appreciated, but probably futile.  BLIND GIRL outwaited 
LURLINE GRACE in a popular 12 minute Challenge duel.  How can a match that lasts 
twelve minutes be popular, you ask?  Well, when you involve two women, wearing little 
enough that you have to wonder about the risk of frostbite, and the vendors come 
around with warm wine, well... that'll do it.
     VISION (26-1573) (85-45-3,197) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged BLACKRAZOR (11-
4091) (59-102-1,204) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  Up 7.  VISION savagely defeated BLACKRAZOR 
in an exciting 4 minute bloody Challenge fight.  Shave him close, Vision!  Slice and 
dice him!  Ahem, ah... well, I just have this thing about cutthroat razors.  And you 
know that's the kind we're looking at, with all that scarlet blood around.
     DEAD OF WINTER (41-970) (30-24-2,189) of THE PLAGUE challenged WARPATH (66-2926) 
(77-133-4,198) of X-FORCE.  Up 9.  DEAD OF WINTER was vanquished by WARPATH in a 1 
minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  This is most-challenged Warpath, and I wish we 
could take his victory here as an omen for the season to come, ie, winter vanquished.  
But... I think not.
     HOMELESS PRINCE (22-6012) (59-38-1,196) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged WOLVERINE 
(66-3871) (50-91-4,210) of X-FORCE.  Up 14.  HOMELESS PRINCE demolished WOLVERINE in 
a popular 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  So, does this mean that Wolverine is 
out in the cold, and the Prince is moving into his quarters?  Lair or den or whatever 
they use.
     MEMPHIS (82-29598) (23-10-0,195) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS 26 challenged CRYSTAL 
FIREBLADE (66-3153) (122-71-0,257) of DEFENDERS OF VIRTUE.  Up 62.  MEMPHIS was 
viciously subdued by CRYSTAL FIREBLADE in a 1 minute Challenge fight.  Looking at the 
difference in visible experience and ranking here, I can't say that I'm surprised at 
the outcome.  But I salute Memphis's guts.  Which were all over the arena.

     And for the title:  DALLAS (18-6860) (51-42-0,346) of SUPERIOR FORCES 6N fought 
CRISSY (11-4993) (38-22-4,297) of VIEW ASKEW.  DALLAS handily defeated CRISSY in a 1 
minute uneven Title fight.  Rather a ho-hum encounter, but we take the encounters we 
get.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Flutterlee, Ardane, anyone -- Flutterlee made a reasonable request for more
inexperienced warriors in Andorak, and I think such an infusion would make things
more interesting.  Looking at the rankings, it's clear that far too many warriors are
pooling in one particular category.  Why?  Of the three warriors I currently have
active here, one is far less experienced than the other two.  That inexperienced
warrior is still eligible for Home Guard, yet she is stuck in the same category as
the other two.  I didn't go out of my way to have her challenge competitively, in a
way that would make her fly up the rankings, either.  I can only think that this has
something to do with the "legacy" warriors that camp at the top of the rankings
forever.  I'm not sure what makes me say that, call it intuition perhaps.  And now
the eligibles bar has been raised significantly...  Perhaps it was moved in the wrong
direction. -- Generalissimo Puerco

     There are times, lots of them, when I think there are simply too many warriors
     here on the Isle.  But without mandatory retirement and/or the creation of new
     Advanced arenas, this accumulation is going to continue.  And I can't blame the
     managers who have labored to get a warrior to the Isle and then want to run him.
     That's what it's all about.  Just... there are so many after twenty years.

Ardane "But if you stop, why should anybody else start?" -- Don't try pulling that
reverse psycology bologne on me.  You very well know my participation in this arena
means nothing to the other managers' decisions whether to contribute to the personal
ads.  I am here to talk TO, even when I'm not running in the arena.  My presence in
the ads in Andorak no longer has any influence over whether people chip in or not.  I
am realistic.  Simple. -- Adie

     Reverse psychology is telling you not to do something in such a way as to subtly
     urge you to do it.  All I did was answer your question in the most clear and
     direct fashion I could.

Hummel -- I just hate that "cheeky cherub" look of yours.  I makes me think of
pottery figures that should be smashed to make landfill, the kind that helps
drainage.  And I would be GLAD to do that to YOU, you old fossil. -- Flutterlee

Warduke -- Oh, what a SURPRISE to see you here.  YOU may not have a life outside the
arena, but I DO, so I'm glad you kept that brief.  I have chicks waiting, you know?
-- Mars

     Odd, you don't look like a hen.

Grandpa Rat -- Doesn't feel strange to you to have a rodent name, when you're a cat
at heart?  (wincing)  And a very efficient cat, too.  Ouch. -- Parnian

Yogonith -- Hmm, maybe you should return to Unknown Kadath or wherever you came from?
Because I didn't enjoy meeting you, and this is above and beyond my basic distaste
for tentacles.  Please go AWAY. -- Saturn

Tarin Sharpeyes -- It's a curse you've got, right?  That you have to fight so often
on any given arena day.  And you DESERVE that curse, because I think you're MEAN and
NASTY and (sigh) better than me at this time. -- Lurline Grace
P.S.  The difference in ranking was my first clue.  Aren't there any lower-ranked
standbys around?

Ardane -- Phbttt! -- the Wanderers

     Fortunately, I'm far enough away to ignore that.

Ardane -- Fighting in the arena and mugging in an alley are two very different
activities.  Trust me on this, I know what I'm talking about. -- Parnian

     You may think so.

Ardane -- Not even till I turn blue? -- Flutterlee

     It depends on what SHADE of blue.  Or could you manage lavendar?
