                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Yes, well, it's spy report time again.  I can't imagine why.  This whole
periodicity question is a crock of it, you know.  It has been both longer and shorter
than two weeks since last we met here, and any thinking person realizes the truth of
this.  Even the Unknown Spymaster has a clue, though he doesn't know what to do with
it.  Of course, neither do I, but why should I?  I just work here.
     So, last cycle, whether it was recent or in the distant past, we had an invasion
of Monsters from Beyond.  This invasion continues, or something like that.  We have
fewer obvious monsters (only four), but since they work by possessing the bodies of
"natives," that seems logical.  Nineteen fights.  NO challenges.  Is this a monsterly
influence at work?  One death, definitely a monsterly influence.
     Surprisingly, avoids were used by The Plague, against fellow Kati-teians the
Wanderers.  Is there a secret history hidden in this?

     Well, nothing for it:  the fights.
     MARS (41-3989) (22-15-0,58) of WANDERERS fought OHRLAM (105-2) (0-0-0,60) of
Monsters from Beyond.  MARS devastated OHRLAM in a 1 minute one-sided bout.  Always
good to see a monster bite the sand, even when it's unexpected.  Maybe especially
when it's unexpected.
     SATURN (41-3990) (17-65-0,47) of WANDERERS fought SHINORR (105-1) (0-0-0,60) of
Monsters from Beyond.  SATURN was overpowered by SHINORR in a crowd pleasing 3 minute
bloody one-sided match.  How... inevitable.  I have to wonder, how did Saturn ever
manage to graduate?  And why?
     LURLINE GRACE (41-4164) (19-21-0,61) of WANDERERS fought YOGONITH (105-5) (0-0-
0,90) of Monsters from Beyond.  LURLINE GRACE overpowered YOGONITH in a 1 minute one-
sided match.  Ah, the tentacles finally yield to her!  I'm sure she is delighted by
this unless, of course, what it actually marks is the successful invasion of her
Grace-ful form by old Yog.
     SOLARIS (46-3759) (25-65-0,35) of RUBY DRAGONS fought PARNIAN (41-4138) (23-32-
1,66) of WANDERERS.  SOLARIS was devastated by PARNIAN in a 1 minute one-sided brawl.
If he keeps on at this rate, in a year or so Parnian might actually have a winning
record.  But will he know what to do with it?  That is the question.
     DEATH FOG (45-4017) (40-22-0,164) of SUPERIOR FORCES fought FLUTTERLEE (41-4153)
(23-26-0,121) of WANDERERS.  DEATH FOG vanquished FLUTTERLEE in a crowd pleasing 1
minute one-sided fray.  Yes... I have noticed that she seems to be in a fog much of
the time.
     WARDUKE (11-5930) (44-50-3,166) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II fought BUTTERHEAD (105-11)
(0-0-0,150) of Monsters from Beyond.  WARDUKE was narrowly defeated by BUTTERHEAD in
a popular 2 minute bloody duel.  "Butter-head"?  How does it come about that a
monster, or even a standby, has a name like that?

     CONNOR MACLEOD (11-5532) (51-61-0,174) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II fought LUCIAS CLAY
(22-6359) (39-30-0,174) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  CONNOR MACLEOD was viciously subdued by
LUCIAS CLAY in a crowd pleasing 2 minute bout.  Ah, vicious.  Yes, the crowds like
that.  It makes you wonder about the crowds, does it not?
     BLIND GIRL (22-6041) (33-10-0,187) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS fought LUKARIAN LAMORAK
(11-4841) (59-68-1,190) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  BLIND GIRL unbelievably bested LUKARIAN
LAMORAK in an exciting 3 minute brutal contest.  I find this completely easy to
believe.  I look forward to seeing it happen again, in fact.  You will note that
Blind Girl's arena number is the double that of her opponent?  It means she's twice
the warrior he is.  Or so I've heard.  I believe there are other factors involved, as
well.
     TALISMAN SHIELDGUARD (11-4304) (72-88-0,196) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought HUMMEL
(14-1404) (74-134-3,193) of MIKES.  TALISMAN SHIELDGUARD subdued HUMMEL in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute match.  One of the assistants supplied a possible comment on this
match, but... I'm not touching that one.  Strange minds some people have.
     SANDS (11-4123) (62-110-3,201) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought SMITH (14-1282) (76-
134-4,189) of MIKES.  SANDS was handily defeated by SMITH in a 1 minute one-sided
bout.  I knew an aimed blow with a favorite of Kick once, he defeated everybody
footily.
     GRANDPA RAT (22-6549) (29-13-2,187) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS fought KHORNE SHADOWSPAWN
(46-3809) (45-40-1,158) of RUBY DRAGONS.  GRANDPA RAT slaughtered KHORNE SHADOWSPAWN
in a 1 minute brutal one-sided fight.  Well done, Rat!  For this Khorne is, clearly,
the Spawn of Shadows or, as it might be, Monsters, and should be removed from the
field at every opportunity.  Why would anyone want to boast of being a spawn of
shadows, anyway?  I'm really not getting this.
     SHADOW OUT OF TIME (41-1622) (30-17-1,192) of THE PLAGUE fought VAN HELSING (11-
6338) (43-32-1,170) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II.  SHADOW OUT OF TIME won victory over VAN
HELSING in an action packed 1 minute fight.  Again, well done!  I must agree with
whoever it was who spoke out against crooners.

     DEAD OF WINTER (41-970) (35-31-2,194) of THE PLAGUE fought BLACKRAZOR (11-4091)
(60-114-1,205) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  DEAD OF WINTER lost to BLACKRAZOR in an action
packed 3 minute duel.  Ah, the season was against DoW.  Too bad, Black took a razor
and, in the words of someone or other, shaved him close.
     POETIC JUICE (66-2975) (55-39-0,218) of ANDORIAN UNIVERSITY fought GOKU (46-
3655) (71-63-2,243) of DRAGONBALL Z.  POETIC JUICE viciously subdued GOKU in a
popular 6 minute gruesome competition.  Six minutes?  That's a LOT of grue.  I'm
surprised there's no note about how the spectators were screaming and jumping up and
down at the goresome sight.
     SOLAR SISTER (71-5609) (34-13-1,218) of THE FURIOUS FIVE fought WOLVERINE (66-
3871) (53-101-4,213) of X-FORCE.  SOLAR SISTER defeated WOLVERINE in an exciting 1
minute struggle.  Nothing like that blaze of solar brilliance.  Way to go, Sister.
     VISION (26-1573) (97-46-4,343) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS fought IRIADOR (50-2481) (63-
43-2,195) of DRUID'S GROVE.  VISION narrowly defeated IRIADOR in a crowd pleasing 2
minute gruesome competition.  When Vision does a narrow defeat, does that mean
squinting?  Maybe the old "steely-eyed glint"?  Very impressive, anyway.
     NIXIE SEASPRITE (11-4992) (54-58-0,223) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought HOMELESS
PRINCE (22-6012) (69-41-1,234) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  NIXIE SEASPRITE devastated
HOMELESS PRINCE in a popular 1 minute one-sided contest.  Homeless, throwing yourself
into the waves is NOT the way to improve your lot.  What were you thinking?
     SWEET TOOTH (11-3248) (35-24-0,212) of GERFEL'S FRIENDS fought WARPATH (66-2926)
(84-139-4,198) of X-FORCE.  SWEET TOOTH was demolished by WARPATH in a popular 1
minute gruesome one-sided melee, and will also be subject to Dental Attack.

     And for the title:  MEMPHIS (82-29598) (34-12-0,392) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS 26
fought VAJRA VALMEJAR (11-4928) (56-66-0,220) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  MEMPHIS devastated
VAJRA VALMEJAR in an action packed 1 minute mismatched Title fight.  Naturally,
Memphis retains the title.  What did you expect?

Van Helsing -- Gods, I hate crooners. -- Flutterlee

Darned standbys.  Urg.  But if I ever start beating them consistently, I guess
that'll mean I'm learning stuff, won't it? -- Lurline Grade

Solaris -- Bwahaha. -- Parnian

There is something very STRANGE about this "Shinorr."  I wonder who or what he really
is? -- Saturn
P.S.  And who he gives his allegiance to....

Heck.  Tarin Sharpeyes, the Dangerous Criminal of standbys in Andorak. -- Mars

Whoa!  The standbys have been taken over by monsters?  Weird! -- the Wanderers
P.S.  Probably Yogonith's doing.  We wouldn't put it past him.  Tentacle marks all
over the place.

a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via

you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
