                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

     Salute, mighty Lord Protectors and managers of Crysalis!  Well met indeed.
First, I salute Kalandra for a bold challenge for the title.  Well fought, Kalandra.
     After 5 straight turns as your Chief Tower Guard, the Gladiatorial Commission is
doing what none these past several months could:  removing me from this glorious
throne in my beloved Crysalis.  Yes, I got the dreaded visit from the G.C. and off to
Primus I go.  I go from being on top (and all the bennies that go with it) to being
just another gladiator in Primus.  I am sure there are those who are glad I'm out of
here, but I'm not one of them.  I'll take the sands in Primus a time or two, but it
just may be time to finally retire once and for all.  We shall see.
     It was great dueling here.  This is a special arena.  I hope you all make it
even better.  Fair winds and following seas, warriors.

Lord Protector Fengar II
Chief Tower Guard
The Council of Lords

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     And here we are again, another day sitting out in the rain watching the fights, 
another cold in the head.  And elsewhere.  Cold everywhere, yes.  I seriously 
considered letting the Zontani golem take this report, but then I saw in the notes 
that he things the fights are held here on a weekly basis.  Obviously an idiot.  
Can't have an idiot reporting.  Well, we CAN, but we're not going to.

     Royal Flush was avoided by The Stormguards.  A question:  Do the Stormguards 
guard the storms, or guard people FROM the storms?  I could use some protection from 
storms here.
     Talos seems to have gotten the most challenges, although the golem is about as 
clear as week-old coffee on the topic.
     There were twenty-eight fights, of which some were challenge matches and some 
weren't.  I think it says here somewhere:  Two deaths.  The longest fight was fifteen 
minutes, which was too long to sit in the rain.  Why don't we get a roof on this 
thing?  Oh, sure, I know there's something up there that LOOKS like a roof, but if 
the rain comes through, it is NOT a roof.  Where was I?  Ah, the fights, etc.  The 
College of Mimes was out in force today, which is not a thing I like to see.  Why 
doesn't their white face-paint wash off in the rain?
     Oh, well, the fights, and then a hot toddy and a warm bed.  That's the ticket.

     EGAN FORN (39-3295) (25-41-0,50) of THE MIDDLE WAY fought R.O.U.S. (106-4) (0-0-
0,50) of the College of Mimes.  EGAN FORN handily defeated R.O.U.S. in a popular 1 
minute gory one-sided duel.  I hear he's taking a day job as Rat Catcher.  Plenty of 
them around this town.
     SNOWFALL (45-3473) (29-18-0,60) of NORTHERN LIGHTS fought CAPTURED PIRATE KING 
(106-2) (0-0-0,30) of the College of Mimes.  SNOWFALL overpowered CAPTURED PIRATE 
KING in a 1 minute one-sided fray.  Pirates are tropical, you see.  They have no idea 
how to fight in snow.  Strange and beautiful to watch... from a safe distance.  Kind 
of like watching a fair-weather driver in a snowstorm.
     SIR PELLEAS (31-4352) (21-20-1,70) of WILLBENDERS fought ANGELOST (39-3415) (14-
7-1,50) of DARQUE ANGELS.  SIR PELLEAS beat ANGELOST in an action packed 2 minute 
duel.  Yep, Sir took and bent his will right over Angelost's pointy little head.  
Boom.  Or words to that effect.  I wonder what they put in this toddy?
     FEDIFENSOR (59-379) (20-15-1,70) of DAMAGE INC. fought NORM PETERSON (39-2745) 
(44-77-0,74) of DRINKING BUDDIES.  FEDIFENSOR was overpowered by NORM PETERSON in a 1 
minute one-sided bout.  This is outrageous.  Norm Peterson is not supposed to go 
winning fights--look at his record!  And in a single minute?  Is the sun rising in 
the west tomorrow?
     HOFFA WITH HAIR (59-2297) (19-2-0,91) of IMPROVED ILLUSION fought SUNFLASH (45-
3474) (25-22-1,65) of NORTHERN LIGHTS.  HOFFA WITH HAIR viciously subdued SUNFLASH in 
a popular 1 minute gruesome match.  That Hoffa with Hair is a vicious person.  
Dangerous.  Probably not sane, even by gladiatorial standards.  Note to all:  Avoid 
Hoffa with Hair.
     Or without.
     FOGGY (72-4595) (12-3-2,109) of DARQUE FORCES fought CARLA (39-2428) (62-79-
2,138) of DRINKING BUDDIES.  FOGGY was demolished by CARLA in a 1 minute one-sided 
fight.  There's a note here that says "Carla drank Foggy under the table last night."  
But you know how it is with these marginal notes.  Can you trust them?  What table?  
Where?  Why?
     PIXIE BLIGHT (73-4427) (20-18-0,105) of DARQUE FORCES VIII fought RANDOM MATCHUP 
(96-1048) (14-8-3,97) of OVERRATED.  PIXIE BLIGHT viciously subdued RANDOM MATCHUP in 
a crowd pleasing 2 minute gory fray.  Random is now going around claiming to be 
"pizilated."
     DANNIA TYL SIO (52-3393) (39-25-1,138) of SAND DANCERS fought DOLLFACE (39-2372) 
(62-82-1,124) of DRINKING BUDDIES.  DANNIA TYL SIO vanquished DOLLFACE in an action 
packed 3 minute one-sided match.  Some people just can't stand another pretty face.
     GRINNON BEARIT (47-2955) (26-14-3,158) of THE BEAR'S PAW fought MATADOR (11-
4139) (48-35-2,133) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS.  GRINNON BEARIT was devastated by MATADOR in 
a popular 1 minute one-sided contest.  Grinnon shouldn't have come out in a horned 
helmet.  Some things are instinctive.
     BEAUTY QUEEN (47-3352) (40-41-3,162) of ROYAL FLUSH fought DEBBIE DAHMER (45-
3579) (29-10-1,138) of MORDRED'S MADMEN.  BEAUTY QUEEN overpowered DEBBIE DAHMER in a 
1 minute mismatched fight.  Debbie, you have to quit the "madwoman" stuff.  It isn't 
YOU.
     DISCO QUEEN (47-1992) (37-17-1,177) of ROYAL FLUSH fought BEARNICE (47-2847) 
(18-19-6,123) of THE BEAR'S PAW.  DISCO QUEEN demolished BEARNICE in a 2 minute one-
sided bout.  After first blinding her with the reflections off that crown.
     TASHIA (11-2740) (31-41-1,161) of DEADLY DE-PARTED fought GERTRUDE (44-2582) 
(22-10-0,133) of DARQUE FORCES.  TASHIA devastated GERTRUDE in an exciting 1 minute 
one-sided brawl.  I wonder about that "de-parted" business, sometimes.  People say, 
"Oh, they're dead."  Not the same way Oaf Modeen is dead, they aren't!  Have some of 
their parts been removed?  Or what?  Inquiring minds, and so forth.
     FIGHTER ACE (47-1189) (56-44-6,195) of ROYAL FLUSH fought ARENAMASTER SANDAVOL 
(106-28) (0-0-0,200) of the College of Mimes.  FIGHTER ACE vanquished ARENAMASTER 
SANDAVOL in a 1 minute one-sided fray.  This is embarrassing--for Sandavol.
     SIR PLUS (10-4316) (33-31-1,189) of SIR AGLIO fought SANDBLASTER (11-3899) (56-
58-3,206) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS.  SIR PLUS was overpowered by SANDBLASTER in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute one-sided duel.  And Sir now needs repainting.  That blast of sand 
went right through his armor.
     SNOOPER (1-5154) (43-21-3,193) of MIKE'S MISFITS fought STONEWALL (11-3900) (55-
59-2,173) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS.  SNOOPER viciously subdued STONEWALL in a crowd 
pleasing 4 minute bloody bout.  Ah, no wall without a loophole to let a snooper get 
to work, eh?
     JACK VALTRAEDS (47-407) (88-61-2,255) of ROYAL FLUSH fought VILLAINOUS INFORMER 
(106-23) (0-0-0,181) of the College of Mimes.  JACK VALTRAEDS handily defeated 
VILLAINOUS INFORMER in a 1 minute one-sided contest.  And we all THANK Jack for that, 
I promise you.  You cannot imagine what a pain that Informer is, how AWKWARD he can 
be, sometimes.
     KING UVDAHELL (47-1643) (36-17-1,216) of ROYAL FLUSH fought VILLAINOUS INFORMER 
(106-23) (0-0-0,181) of the College of Mimes.  KING UVDAHELL demolished VILLAINOUS 
INFORMER in a 1 minute mismatched match.  This was just to make sure that the 
Villainous Informer got the point, yes?
     DAIRY QUEEN (47-2685) (65-38-3,256) of ROYAL FLUSH fought PRINCE OF AR (31-3625) 
(16-16-1,195) of THE STORMBRINGERS.  DAIRY QUEEN beat PRINCE OF AR in a 1 minute 
fight.  They tell me black-and-white cows go with everything.  I don't know if that's 
relevant, but it's a comment.  Hmm, I wonder what IS in this toddy?
     GROLSCH (21-5029) (39-4-4,253) of REAL BEER fought CRYSALIS GUARD (106-29) (0-0-
0,200) of the College of Mimes.  GROLSCH defeated CRYSALIS GUARD in an action packed 
4 minute match.  And that is not to be wondered at.  The Guards here are very 
susceptible to beer.
     PRIMUS (21-4975) (41-13-0,215) of REAL BEER fought KITALA THE BOLD (78-875) (88-
105-2,205) of SAND DANCERS.  PRIMUS defeated KITALA THE BOLD in an action packed 6 
minute gory duel.  And perhaps Kitala is susceptible to beer, also?  Or just 
unwilling to look good in relation to a Primus of any type at all.

     Ah!  Challenge matches.  There seem to be... seven of them.  No TVs in use 
today.
     JACK SPRAT (47-2954) (50-60-4,133) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged KYRA (51-3774) (44-
49-1,139) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 6.  JACK SPRAT handily defeated KYRA in a 1 minute 
uneven Challenge fight.  It occurs to me that by not EATING the fat, Jack has it on 
hand to grease his armor.  Good plan.
     BURGER KING (47-4152) (32-30-2,142) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged MIRTA (51-4033) 
(51-31-1,175) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 33.  BURGER KING butchered MIRTA in a 1 minute 
mismatched Challenge match.  Take note of this, all of you!  Do NOT, repeat, DO NOT 
purchase food off carts operated by "colorful characters."  This may not get you dead 
every time, but it might make you wish for death.
     SIR YDER (31-4353) (28-14-0,164) of WILLBENDERS challenged KING FORADAY (47-
3762) (44-43-4,190) of ROYAL FLUSH.  Up 26.  SIR YDER was unbelievably bested by KING 
FORADAY in a 2 minute gory Challenge duel.  What's not to believe here?
     TALOS (31-2069) (56-28-0,190) of THE STORMGUARDS challenged HANNYA (73-4350) 
(32-12-1,203) of BLOOD LUST.  Up 13.  TALOS defeated HANNYA in a crowd pleasing 4 
minute Challenge match.  Is this "most-challenged" Talos we see getting his own 
challenge through?  Amazing what a little clever footwork will do.
     CRUSADER LORD (31-3946) (43-36-6,189) of THE STORMGUARDS challenged TEN 
COMMANDMENTS (47-3843) (41-37-0,183) of ROYAL FLUSH.  Down 6.  CRUSADER LORD was 
slaughtered by TEN COMMANDMENTS in a 1 minute Challenge brawl.  You have to wonder 
which commandment CL broke that resulted in this dire fate.
     KRAC D'CHEVALIERS (31-4345) (22-30-0,199) of THE STORMGUARDS challenged JUAN 
(41-2304) (31-21-0,221) of DREAM TEAMS.  Up 22.  KRAC D'CHEVALIERS was demolished by 
JUAN in a 2 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  Juan:  Is he a dream... or a 
nightmare?
     SANDPAWN (11-4169) (53-25-1,198) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS challenged R'SHANN (20-577) 
(56-45-3,198) of OVERLORDS.  Straight across.  SANDPAWN was viciously subdued by 
R'SHANN in a 15 minute Challenge fight.  That happens to pawns.  Our longest fight, 
too.

     And for the title, a random match because our former Champion got sucked off to 
Primus, who will not appreciate him.
     SANDMAN (11-3923) (59-56-2,257) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS fought SIR LY (10-4116) (46-
34-0,224) of SIR AGLIO.  SANDMAN won victory over SIR LY in an action packed 4 minute 
gruesome Title duel.  Congratulations to Sandman.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Icelord -- Well organized Craziness on turn 150.  I am only now getting to reading
the results and turn 151 has already posted on-line. -- Crip

Fengar II -- To answer your question, I ran all my Crysalis warriors in the
Craziness.  I figure I also have about 25 warriors retired in Primus, and about 60 or
70 in Home Guard.

Icelord & Sultan -- I'd rather wait for the 50 turn anniversaries for such special
events.  At every 10 turns, I certainly will not fight all my guys, whereas I will
for the 50 turn anniversaries, so long as this game is still going. -- Crip

Krac-head D'Chevaliers -- Tough matchup, you deserved better. -- Willi Makit.

Crip's Craziness Results -- My weaponless warriors -15-13-1
                My opponents weaponless warriors -- 12-15
                      My opponents armed warriors -- 4-10
Had one of my barehanded warriors carry a backup weapon, which he never drew.  Had
one barehanded opponent carry a backup weapon, which he drew in just after the start
of the fight, and shredded my guy to bits. -- Crip

Crip's favourite Crysalis Craziness fights -- Miss Zing vs. Sir Loin, Miss Erable vs.
Sir Ly, King Uvdahell vs. Hannya, Dairy Queen vs. Arrogant (gotta love the elbow to
the face for the kill), Primus vs. Pack Rat, Miss Kay L Qulate vs. Talos, Dark Tower
vs. Boson, Juninho vs. Too Much Con 2 (Two bare handed Aim Blows), Catfish Hunter vs.
Totally Par. -- Crip

Ketchum -- "Collusion?" I resemble...resent that remark. -- The Icelord (are you
trying to insinuate something here?)

Baphomet and Master Darque  -- Thanks. Let's see what happens on #160. -- The Icelord

Juan -- Uh, never mind. -- Crusader Lord

Sultan -- Thanks. I was disappointed to see some not "get the word" or choose not to
participate.  Not much one can do except challenge those party-poopers and tack some
losses on them.  Let's see what happens on #160. -- The Icelord

Leeta/Nick/Jorja/Li Dan -- Thanks for participating.  Well met. -- The Icelord

Any Thieves World fans out there?  The latest book "Enemies of Fortune" should be out
now.  A must read for all rogues, ruffians and gladiators. -- The Icelord

High Lord Bosk -- Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, my sword-brother!  Tal. -- The
Icelord

Fengar II -- Many salutes and hussahs to you for holding the throne for 6 turns!  You
do honor to The Council of Lords. -- High Lord Bosk

The Icelord -- Merry Christmas, My Brother, and may your new year bring you more
great successes!  Salute. -- High Lord Bosk

Babe-O-Meat -- Did you notice I got all five wins turn 151?  That is what helps my
Win-Loss record more than anything.  55% wins is better than your 12.5% win record.
You have the worst record here.  My advice is to sit down and shut up and if you know
how to write, take notes. -- AK47 (helping out the next guy out of pity)

Icelord -- If the others agree then count my stable in.  I am willing to do some more
bare-knuckles fighting.  Turn 160. -- AK47 (hoping to do better next time)

Sinyamegil -- Good try.  I didn't expect to pull that one off, especially considering
the way the first minute went. -- Dannia tyl Sio
P.S.  So tall and blond!  (sigh)  I wouldn't have minded being tall and blonde
myself, but a blonde from southern Lirith Kai?  As if!

Maegolos -- You elves have always had a down on us. -- Snowfall
P.S.  And besides, you were, much as I hate to admit it, better that day.

Sir Yder -- Do you think you should go around with your will bent like that?  What if
it freezes that way? -- Kitala the Bold and Not Inducted

Tempus -- (surprised look)  Are you really that short?  Or are you just crouching
down?  These details could make a difference. -- Mirta

Foggy -- Oh, I don't know, I don't think I'd go with that dumb fan and call you
stupid.  I think I'd just call you inexperienced and badly matched, yes? -- Kyra

Norm Peterson -- I suppose it's because you were drunk, and falling down didn't hurt
you at all.  But I hate losing to a pud like you. -- Sunflash

Galena -- Ack!  Lead poisoning! -- Egan Forn
P.S.  You came down on me like lead weights.

Baphomet -- I remember your team in Aruak City; I remember AK47's, also.  Whatever
works out for the two of you is fine with me.  I'll be there, as I have all along:
Krill Cavalry. -- Leeta

Battle Royal 4
     The Battle Royal arena contests are one of the purest tests of manager skill
available. The rules are simple.  The scoring is simple.  The updates are live.  If
you would like to participate, simply get a team ready in Talcama in the next month
and announce in the personals that you're in.  The prize is bragging rights and
having your name along side previous winners (Doc Steele, Manray Frothingslosh, and
Manager).  It is a brutal contest, but it is a lot of fun!
     Basic rules:  No avoiding other contest teams.  Score = Wins + Kills - Losses.
Only fights against other BR teams count.  First team to 25 wins!
     BR4 begins in Talcama (DM 18) on turn 502, due on Jan 29, 2005.

                                FACE-TO-FACE XXXIV

     Our next Winter Face-to-Face will be held on Martin Luther King weekend, Friday 
through Sunday, 14-16 January 2005, at the Embassy Suites in Tempe, Arizona (4400 S 
Rural Rd--this is the same hotel as last year).  Room rates are $139.00 per night, 
1-4 occupancy, which includes breakfast.  The rooms are blocked.  The reservations 
number is 480-897-7444; tell them you're with the "Reality Simulations Face to Face 
Convention" block.  Our room block will be released in mid-December, so please make 
sure you reserve your room before then! 
     Room rates include a full cooked-to-order breakfast and a complimentary two-hour 
manager's reception.  There is a free shuttle to the airport, as well as free parking.  
The hotel is located down the freeway in Tempe.  All rooms have high speed internet 
(for an extra charge).  There is a fitness center, jacuzzi, and pool, and of course a 
bar and Mexican restaurant inside the hotel.  And there's Denny's right across the 
street.  Look for transportation info in the tournament information sheet.
     The tournament information sheet/strategy sheet should be out sometime in late 
November/early December. 
     If you haven't been to a Face-to-Face before, you're overdue.  If you have, 
you'll be back.  Don't miss this one, it'll be a blast!  See you there!
