                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

     Oh, crap.  Here we go again.  I've worn out numerous pairs of combat boots, not
to mention scimitars, kicking the butts of big mouths who think they are the baddest
of the bad and all they do is talk a lot.  Usually they don't show.  Okay Matrix, if
you read this, bring on Chaos.  You said "FEAR CHAOS INC."  I laugh.  Ha, ha, ha, ha,
ha, etc.  (Yawn!!! -- oops, that slipped out.)

                    Atonement, ready and waiting

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Do you get tired of the same old thing sometimes?  Well, as Debby Tonte would 
say, "Fergit it, this is the Crysalis spy report."  Same old fights, same old fight 
report.  Well, more or less the same.
     We start with Drinking Buddies being avoided by Andorian Knights.  Carla of 
Drinking Buddies got the most challenges.  Given that out of a mere twenty-five 
fights we had only seven challenges (none of them tv challenges), "most" could be no 
more than two.  Twenty-five fights is fifty warriors, but three were standbys, so 
that's only forty-seven warriors active here today.  Where has everybody gone?
     Our longest fight was seven minutes, which is respectable--barely, but I've seen 
much longer ones.  Here, as a matter of fact.
     Nobody died, which is good.  Deaths are depressing, more often than not, even if 
you DO get resurrected.

     The fights--
     PROOKIE (78-2345) (19-11-1,46) of PBA fought ALASTARIAN DESERTER (106-1) (0-0-
0,30) of Crysalis Poets' Society.  PROOKIE vanquished ALASTARIAN DESERTER in an 
action packed 1 minute one-sided match.  The crowd was well pleased with this, though 
the announcer didn't say so.  But if you'd heard the Deserter's "poetry," you 
wouldn't wonder at their glee!
     NORM PETERSON (39-2745) (41-69-0,72) of DRINKING BUDDIES fought SPLIT (78-2347) 
(21-12-0,67) of PBA.  NORM PETERSON was subdued by SPLIT in a popular 3 minute fight.  
Norm Peterson is always doing stuff like that--being subdued.  He told me once that 
he felt practicing was a mistake, because it cut into the time he had for SERIOUS 
business: drinking.
     SNOWFALL (45-3473) (24-12-0,59) of NORTHERN LIGHTS fought ZOOLANDER (39-3523) 
(13-6-1,46) of WITLESS WONDERS.  SNOWFALL was viciously subdued by ZOOLANDER in a 2 
minute gory contest.  I bet Snowfall's wondering if coming to the Isle was such a 
good idea after all....  Many Lord Protectors stay home on their "graduation lands" 
and help defend their home regions, and a worthy thing that is, too.
     GWEN RYDER (9-4867) (18-6-0,50) of DREAM PARK fought LUMBERING WAIF (8-4346) 
(14-9-0,51) of HAPLESS WAIF.  GWEN RYDER was overpowered by LUMBERING WAIF in a 1 
minute uneven fray.  Obviously, "lumbering" is not a handicap to a vicious-minded 
Waif.  An awe-inspiring performance.
     UNCERTAIN OMELET (47-3786) (12-4-0,40) of MYSTIC ORC FEAST fought BINGE N PURGE 
(45-3567) (16-9-0,55) of EMETICS.  UNCERTAIN OMELET was narrowly defeated by BINGE N 
PURGE in a 3 minute fight.  I am confused as to how an omelet could be uncertain, but 
no doubt a mystic Orc could manage it if anyone could.
     PINE (78-2350) (21-5-1,54) of TREE PEOPLE fought RIRORNI SOLDIER (106-3) (0-0-
0,30) of Crysalis Poets' Society.  PINE slimly lost to RIRORNI SOLDIER in a 2 minute 
contest.  The Soldier is well known for his epic poetry; a mere two minutes didn't 
give him time to get started.
     RANDOM MATCHUP (96-1048) (8-3-3,59) of OVERRATED fought DEBBIE DAHMER (45-3579) 
(22-6-1,83) of MORDRED'S MADMEN.  RANDOM MATCHUP was overpowered by DEBBIE DAHMER in 
a 1 minute mismatched fight.  I suppose it's appropriate that Random Matchup should 
fight in such a bout.  But imagine going through your dueling life with such a name!
     SIR YDER (31-4353) (23-8-0,100) of WILLBENDERS fought PIXIE BLIGHT (73-4427) 
(15-12-0,86) of DARQUE FORCES VIII.  SIR YDER demolished PIXIE BLIGHT in a 1 minute 
one-sided bout.  Does this mean that Pixie's will was bent?  And how can you tell?  
Is will always straight, normally?  I've never seen this diagrammed, and if anybody 
knows, I'm curious to hear about it.
     EVE (72-4596) (12-2-0,94) of DARQUE FORCES fought DANNIA TYL SIO (52-3393) (32-
21-1,79) of SAND DANCERS.  EVE devastated DANNIA TYL SIO in a 1 minute one-sided 
fight.  "Devastated darquely," no doubt.  Fairly impressive work here.
     MERCY (54-1797) (18-10-0,114) of THE BLACK COMPANY fought ZORRO, THE GAY BLADE 
(106-8) (0-0-0,110) of Crysalis Poets' Society.  MERCY overpowered ZORRO, THE GAY 
BLADE in a 1 minute mismatched brawl.  And it was a mercy to us all, as well.  If 
you'd had to LISTEN to Zorro's poetry...!  The good poets don't come out to fight as 
standbys, you see.
     TYRE (31-3713) (29-20-0,146) of DARQUE FORCES fought DOLLFACE (39-2372) (57-76-
1,135) of DRINKING BUDDIES.  TYRE was outwaited by DOLLFACE in an action packed 7 
minute duel.  Our longest fight, and I have a question.  If one person is a Dwarf of 
the male persuasion, and the other is an Elf of the female persuasion, can they be 
attracted to each other?
     MIRTA (51-4033) (44-27-1,152) of SAND DANCERS fought FEATHER (54-1742) (18-15-
2,103) of THE WHITE COMPANY.  MIRTA was overpowered by FEATHER in a 1 minute one-
sided duel.  Gives new meaning to the statement "his blows were as light as a 
feather," doesn't it, Mirta?
     SIR PLUS (10-4316) (30-23-1,192) of SIR AGLIO fought SIDON (31-3712) (32-22-
2,193) of DARQUE FORCES.  SIR PLUS beat SIDON in a crowd pleasing 1 minute conflict.  
I'm surprised it ended that fast, as this was a very close match.  We really need 
Debby's Instant Replay to appreciate it properly.
     SANDBLASTER (11-3899) (51-52-3,192) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS fought BALCLUTHA (14-
3169) (25-34-1,208) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  SANDBLASTER was viciously subdued by 
BALCLUTHA in an exciting 3 minute bloody battle.  I am sometimes surprised by what 
excites the fans.
     JUAN (41-2304) (26-15-0,203) of DREAM TEAMS fought DUNEDIN (14-3703) (29-35-
0,206) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  JUAN was savagely defeated by DUNEDIN in a crowd 
pleasing 4 minute bloody match.  Ah, it would appear that these Otago people are 
really cleaning up today!  It is, of course, a good day for cleaning up--every day is 
good for that.  Dirt is Bad, after all.
     SANDMAN (11-3923) (50-54-2,186) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS fought SNOOPER (1-5154) (35-
18-3,196) of MIKE'S MISFITS.  SANDMAN was overpowered by SNOOPER in a popular 3 
minute gory uneven match.  Is it true?  I couldn't hear, but the gossip is that that 
Snooper taunts his opponents with the results of his snooping.
     BUTCH (70-6657) (33-23-2,212) of A UNIT fought SIR LY (10-4116) (39-30-0,192) of 
SIR AGLIO.  BUTCH was defeated by SIR LY in an action packed 3 minute gory duel.  And 
Sir Ly scowled the whole time, too.  If he doesn't watch out, his face will FREEZE 
that way.
     KITALA THE BOLD (78-875) (81-101-2,232) of SAND DANCERS fought TASHIA (11-2740) 
(28-33-1,183) of DEADLY DE-PARTED.  KITALA THE BOLD vanquished TASHIA in a 1 minute 
uneven duel.  Which makes Tashia vanquished but not departed, no doubt an improvement 
on her state at other times.

     And the challenge matches:
     EGOTISTIC DUKE (28-2779) (19-10-1,52) of ABYSMAL BEHAVIORS challenged 300 (78-
2346) (17-15-0,70) of PBA.  Up 18.  EGOTISTIC DUKE was viciously subdued by 300 in a 
2 minute Challenge fight.  And what, in the end, can one say about a warrior with a 
name like 300?  Three hundred WHAT?
     MATADOR (11-4139) (39-33-2,90) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS challenged EGAN FORN (39-
3295) (24-31-0,51) of THE MIDDLE WAY.  Down 39.  MATADOR savagely defeated EGAN FORN 
in an exciting 2 minute bloody Challenge struggle.  No surprise here.
     BIRAN (54-1927) (15-6-1,48) of THE WHITE COMPANY challenged SCOOTER (54-118) 
(17-7-1,86) of THE MUPPETS.  Up 38.  BIRAN was demolished by SCOOTER in a 1 minute 
mismatched Challenge competition.  Muppets, here?  Er... so they are....
     LEVITICUS (54-1687) (17-17-2,100) of THE WHITE COMPANY challenged STONEWALL (11-
3900) (47-56-2,126) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS.  Up 26.  LEVITICUS was devastated by 
STONEWALL in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  A bold try, Leviticus.  Better 
luck next time.
     HANNYA (73-4350) (25-8-1,146) of BLOOD LUST challenged CARLA (39-2428) (59-71-
1,146) of DRINKING BUDDIES.  Straight across.  HANNYA savagely defeated CARLA in an 
action packed 4 minute bloody Challenge fight.  Ooooh, people keep TELLING Carla not 
to drink before the fights, but she keeps on DOING it.
     SANDPAWN (11-4169) (46-21-1,178) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS challenged KYRA (51-3774) 
(41-41-1,172) of SAND DANCERS.  Down 6.  SANDPAWN vanquished KYRA in a 1 minute 
uneven Challenge battle.  Again, no surprise here.

     And for the title:
     FATHER OF ALL MUNS (20-2306) (32-42-1,227) of THE FAMILY TREE challenged 
ATONEMENT (82-761) (46-25-0,378) of A UNIT XV.  Up 151.  FATHER OF ALL MUNS slimly 
lost to ATONEMENT in a 4 minute Challenge Title fight.  Boldly challenged, Father of 
All Muns, and briliantly won, Atonement.  I salute you both.

THE DEAD                    W   L  K TEAM NAME              SLAIN BY              TURN

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Ten Commandments -- Commandment #1 -- I shall not challenge thee again.  I'm not sure
the four points of recognition were worth the whipping I took. -- Mercy

Silver Stroke -- Tough turn, bub. -- Woelfe

All -- It looks like there are a lot of new teams here in beautiful Crysalis.  Sorry
that I didn't welcome you all sooner.  So, welcome to all the new teams. -- the Mun

Slugbait -- Welcome to Crysalis.  It was good to meet you at the face.  I had a lot
of fun at our table and I hope that you stay around for a while. -- the Mun

Baphomet -- No disrespect taken.  I have no army of gladiators only the five you see
before you.  I have been away a long time from beloved Aruak City.  I cannot recall
if Leeta was there when I was.  Who hates Aruak City but hides here?  I am on a
manhunt for foes. -- AK47 (wondering why his last week personal ads were not printed)

     No idea about the personals that went missing.  I didn't see the newsletter last
     time at all (hence the computer spy report). -- L

Kyra -- Perhaps not but I could win on you. -- Sandpawn (that makes 4th win in row
off Kyra)

Egan Forn -- Don't take your bare knuckle beatings personal.  It is not your actions
but Kitala the Bold's words of hate which bought your pain to you. -- Matador
(Mailman of Pain)

Kitala The Bold -- Thank you for your kind words.  Does not change a thing but my
stablemate respect your fighting skills.  Our feud goes on until honor is restored.
-- Sandman (tending to his wounds)

Tashia -- You hit me and I hit the floor.  And stayed down for 2 minutes as you poked
holes in me with your little epee.  Do I look like a pin cushion to you?  Yet I still
won without hitting you once.  Am I not the best warrior here from Aruak City? --
Sandblaster (looking for the joker who tied a large shield on his back instead of a
scimitar before the battle)

Ten Commandments -- And for our eleventh commandment:  Thou shall not challenge the
Ten Commandments...I know, so witty of me.  <grin> -- Mercy

Primus -- I have nothing at all against real beer.  And it was a pleasure to fight
you, also. -- Kitala the Bold but Not Unfriendly

Carla -- Well, if you didn't go drinking right before the fight, things might go
better for you! -- Mirta

300 -- A good number, of course, but not an ultimate one. -- Dannia tyl Sio

Pixie Blight -- You blighted wretch!  Ouch. -- Snowfall

Atonement -- I can't speak for others, but I have found that the arrival of Gateway

warriors in Primus, while tedious in some ways, has one benefit:  Gateway skill
training!  Warriors who have been maxed for years are learning skills, and learning
them well.  It's amazing. -- player behind Sand Dancers et al

Baphomet -- Not a problem.  Real life has a way of intruding at the most inconvenient
times!  Better luck next time. -- Leeta

4 February 2004
Greeting from Jhans, DM 36 -- In 2 turns the kLk will host our first annual "St.
Valentines Day Massacre" in Jhans, arena 36.  (Kill Contest)  The contest will begin
on turn 450.  It will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461 the winners will be announced.
There will be 3 separate categories, the team with the most kills, the alliance with
the most kills, and the warrior with the most kills.  For the manager of the team
with the most kills a PRIZE of 10 ROLL-UPS will be rewarded (or $50 deposited into
his account).  No need to declare yourself in the personals.  If you are in DM 36,
you will be part of the contest whether you like it or not.  We encourage as much
trash talk as you'd like.  All teams, managers, and alliances invited.  Please
contact Polarius (mgr. of Blitzkrieg) in DM 36 with questions.  Or you can email me
at jamieptmo@hotmail.com.  Good luck and see you in the sands. -- Polarius

25 February 2004
Readers, and especially those who volunteered warriors -- My apologies for the sudden
lack of episodes.  I've been sick, but expect to be back at the keyboard soon. -- the
Scribe
