                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Well!  This is a fine how-de-do!  Here we are with thirty-one fights, which 
sounds respectable, and then I count FOURTEEN mimes out there!  It's a flaming 
disgrace!  Despite the padded fight schedule, we only have forty-eight warriors on 
the sands today.  The shame!

     Flower Girls were avoided by Royal Flush, a very avoiding group of warriors.  
Like to pick their fights, I suppose.
     Despite ending up in a random match, General Public was the most-challenged 
warrior.  And yes, we DID have challenges that went through, so it wasn't what you're 
thinking.  Only seven, but that's better than no challenges at all.  Or than fourteen 
standbys!  I can't stop marveling at that.  FOURTEEN.  Gods.  It's a disgrace.  Very 
nearly twenty percent of the warriors out there!  Mimes.  Gods, that was awful.  I 
almost let Olaf take the spy report when I saw that.  And five of them WON.  How 
could you do this?

     SNOWFALL (45-3473) (37-25-0,86) of NORTHERN LIGHTS fought CAPTURED PIRATE KING 
(106-2) (0-0-0,30) of the College of Mimes.  SNOWFALL savagely defeated CAPTURED 
PIRATE KING in a 2 minute bloody match.  Good.  This was proper.  The Pirate Kings 
are getting uppity.
     HOLLAN INNIS (50-3388) (21-25-0,46) of MIDDLE WAY 6 fought CHAOS WARRIOR (8-
1779) (26-19-0,74) of CHAMPIONS OF STEEL.  HOLLAN INNIS was vanquished by CHAOS 
WARRIOR in a 2 minute mismatched fight.  Two managed warriors, nothing remarkable.  
Keep it up.
     ELLITA FESS (50-3392) (26-26-1,78) of MIDDLE WAY 6 fought CAPTURED PIRATE KING 
(106-2) (0-0-0,30) of the College of Mimes.  ELLITA FESS overpowered CAPTURED PIRATE 
KING in an exciting 2 minute uneven bout.  Another Pirate King learns his place.  Or 
maybe the same one, but who cares?
     EGAN FORN (39-3295) (31-50-0,56) of THE MIDDLE WAY fought RIRORNI SOLDIER (106-
3) (0-0-0,30) of the College of Mimes.  EGAN FORN was overpowered by RIRORNI SOLDIER 
in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  With "warriors" like this, it's no wonder Xochithlan 
is still half in ruins from the Rirorni War.
     CUBA (26-3917) (18-8-0,80) of HERE TO PHOENIX fought SUNFLASH (45-3474) (29-33-
1,63) of NORTHERN LIGHTS.  CUBA vanquished SUNFLASH in an exciting 1 minute brutal 
one-sided fray.  And may you reach Phoenix any day now.

     PHILLIP THE BIRD (40-3708) (14-7-0,100) of CRUEL PET NAMES fought SENATOR 
SEDALIA (30-4245) (21-8-0,94) of LENPROS.  PHILLIP THE BIRD viciously subdued SENATOR 
SEDALIA in a popular 2 minute gory bout.  There are points beyond which even a Bird 
will not endure.
     GILIA HARN (50-3391) (25-28-0,97) of MIDDLE WAY 6 fought IT FELT GOOD (31-5093) 
(18-9-0,63) of WHY DID I DO IT.  GILIA HARN was handily defeated by IT FELT GOOD in a 
2 minute mismatched bout.  Well, I'm sure It thought so.
     GENERAL PUBLIC (31-3112) (18-14-1,127) of MILITARY MAYHEM fought SHARD (45-3507) 
(22-30-1,97) of NORTHERN LIGHTS.  GENERAL PUBLIC was vanquished by SHARD in an action 
packed 1 minute gory uneven bout.  This is apparently our Most Challenged General 
Public and I have no idea why the match turned out to be random.  Some evil 
influence, no doubt.  Lots of them around.
     MICHAEL J'EH FOX (60-5263) (26-13-2,176) of INGRATE WHITE NORTH fought ORPHAN 
(72-5463) (22-11-2,126) of X-POSSE.  MICHAEL J'EH FOX overpowered ORPHAN in a 1 
minute one-sided bout.  And now Orphan is truly "lone, lorn."
     BEERVAHNA (60-4292) (31-30-3,192) of INGRATE WHITE NORTH fought WHACKING WILLOW 
(52-3167) (33-8-1,152) of FLOWER GIRLS.  BEERVAHNA vanquished WHACKING WILLOW in an 
action packed 1 minute one-sided match.  Whacked that Willow upside the stem?  But 
was she a pussywillow?  Inquiring minds, etc.

     BEAUTY QUEEN (47-3352) (43-47-3,194) of ROYAL FLUSH fought IMPRISONED SPY (106-
9) (0-0-0,170) of the College of Mimes.  BEAUTY QUEEN demolished IMPRISONED SPY in a 
2 minute one-sided fight.  Good!  I wish she'd killed him.  A creep of the first 
order.
     DAIRY QUEEN (47-2685) (72-40-3,221) of ROYAL FLUSH fought ARENAMASTER SANDAVOL 
(106-28) (0-0-0,200) of the College of Mimes.  DAIRY QUEEN was viciously subdued by 
ARENAMASTER SANDAVOL in a 3 minute fray.  An arenamaster is nobody to trifle with.  
Trifle is too rich for his old arteries.
     DISCO QUEEN (47-1992) (42-21-1,223) of ROYAL FLUSH fought CRYSALIS GUARD (106-
29) (0-0-0,200) of the College of Mimes.  DISCO QUEEN won victory over CRYSALIS GUARD 
in a popular 4 minute gruesome match.  And what was he guarding, before she blinded 
him, eh?  Anybody see?
     JACK SPRAT (47-2954) (57-62-4,218) of ROYAL FLUSH fought CLOTTO (106-25) (0-0-
0,181) of the College of Mimes.  JACK SPRAT was unbelievably bested by CLOTTO in a 
popular 2 minute gory contest.  I believe it.  I don't LIKE it, but I believe it.  I 
saw, after all.
     FIGHTER ACE (47-1189) (65-45-6,289) of ROYAL FLUSH fought ARENAMASTER SANDAVOL 
(106-28) (0-0-0,200) of the College of Mimes.  FIGHTER ACE overpowered ARENAMASTER 
SANDAVOL in a 2 minute bloody one-sided match.  Ah, old Sandoval is good for one 
fight, but not two.

     JACK VALTRAEDS (47-407) (96-63-2,231) of ROYAL FLUSH fought ARENAMASTER SANDAVOL 
(106-28) (0-0-0,200) of the College of Mimes.  JACK VALTRAEDS devastated ARENAMASTER 
SANDAVOL in an exciting 2 minute one-sided fight.  Or three.
     KING FORADAY (47-3762) (53-45-4,238) of ROYAL FLUSH fought RIRORNI CAPTAIN (106-
26) (0-0-0,200) of the College of Mimes.  KING FORADAY handily defeated RIRORNI 
CAPTAIN in a 2 minute mismatched bout.  Ah!  Now, this is the style that won the War, 
which fortunately did not get all the way up to North Fork.  If only it had started 
in the north and worked south....
     TEN COMMANDMENTS (47-3843) (48-39-1,217) of ROYAL FLUSH fought VERMICIOUS KNID 
(106-30) (0-0-0,240) of the College of Mimes.  TEN COMMANDMENTS was unbelievably 
bested by VERMICIOUS KNID in a 2 minute bout.  Knids don't take commandments well.  
Or at all.  It makes 'em testy.
     JUNINHO (7-4001) (32-17-1,214) of IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS fought SANDBLASTER (11-
3899) (67-62-3,197) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS.  JUNINHO was savagely defeated by 
SANDBLASTER in a crowd pleasing 2 minute conflict.  Ah, well, there are days like 
this.  It's one of the rules of Life.

     NEWT GINGRICH (5-3399) (71-25-0,242) of PARTY ANIMALS fought STIGMA OF STUPID 
(31-4948) (24-7-1,190) of UNFIT TO BE ORCS.  NEWT GINGRICH devastated STIGMA OF 
STUPID in a 1 minute one-sided battle.  But the question arises, what is stupider 
than an orc?  A tough one, there are so many choices....

     PRIMUS (21-4975) (50-14-0,234) of REAL BEER fought TELGOR (106-27) (0-0-0,200) 
of the College of Mimes.  PRIMUS was savagely defeated by TELGOR in a crowd pleasing 
5 minute bloody match.  Primus, what do you MEAN by saying you "didn't know he could 
hold it that well"?  Of course he could!  Telgor wins PRIZES for how well he holds 
his beer!
     MONKEY BUSINESS (25-4040) (29-17-1,213) of PRIMATES-R-US fought RIRORNI COOK 
(106-24) (0-0-0,181) of the College of Mimes.  MONKEY BUSINESS savagely defeated 
RIRORNI COOK in a popular 2 minute gory melee.  I see it now, monkey gizzard stew for 
every meal for a month....  Next time, try not to annoy the cook?
     GROLSCH (21-5029) (46-7-4,221) of REAL BEER fought CRYSALIS GUARD (106-29) (0-0-
0,200) of the College of Mimes.  GROLSCH was viciously subdued by CRYSALIS GUARD in a 
popular 3 minute gory duel.  Another heavy drinker.  What else do the standbys have 
to do, if not to drink day in and day out?

     Ah, the challenge matches.  At least there will be no mimes among them.
     ZIT (8-4385) (16-2-0,64) of Z GLADIATORZ challenged BALDER (28-3778) (18-15-
3,65) of VALHALLA.  Up 1.  ZIT unbelievably bested BALDER in an action packed 5 
minute gruesome Challenge fight.  What is this "unbelievable" business?  We see it, 
and they tell us we can't believe?  Or is it the bookies trying to weasel out of 
paying up on long shots?
     CANNONBALL (72-5313) (22-13-1,146) of X-POSSE challenged KYRA (51-3774) (53-55-
1,175) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 29.  CANNONBALL overpowered KYRA in a crowd pleasing 1 
minute one-sided Challenge struggle.  No overwhelming surprise.
     MELTDOWN (8-4353) (24-13-0,110) of X-FORCE challenged BEAR ACUDA (47-4995) (22-
11-1,151) of THE BEAR'S PAW.  Up 41.  MELTDOWN was savagely defeated by BEAR ACUDA in 
a 5 minute Challenge competition.  That is a mean bear, Melty.  Or maybe a real bear 
of a fish.
     TAOS (26-4042) (17-10-1,102) of HERE TO PHOENIX challenged BEARNICE (47-2847) 
(20-27-6,105) of THE BEAR'S PAW.  Up 3.  TAOS defeated BEARNICE in a 2 minute 
Challenge fight.  Must've been that Taos Lightning.

     ROTTEN LIVER (52-2902) (32-13-1,199) of OTTO'S PARTS challenged MIRTA (51-4033) 
(55-42-1,199) of SAND DANCERS.  Straight across.  ROTTEN LIVER overpowered MIRTA in a 
crowd pleasing 1 minute mismatched Challenge duel.  It was the stench that did it.  
Bring onions next time.  Even the stewards commented.
     BURGER KING (47-4152) (38-33-3,189) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged DANNIA TYL SIO 
(52-3393) (47-32-1,193) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 4.  BURGER KING demolished DANNIA TYL 
SIO in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  Ah, probably too greasy.  Or maybe 
"forgot" to hold the onions.  Whatever works.
     RAVISHING REDBUD (52-3197) (30-7-0,211) of FLOWER GIRLS challenged GRINNON 
BEARIT (47-2955) (35-20-3,217) of THE BEAR'S PAW.  Up 6.  RAVISHING REDBUD 
unbelievably bested GRINNON BEARIT in a 3 minute Challenge fight.  But Grinnon loved 
every minute of it.

     And for the title:  KING UVDAHELL (47-1643) (43-21-1,245) of ROYAL FLUSH fought 
MATADOR (11-4139) (54-44-3,211) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS.  A random match.  KING UVDAHELL 
viciously subdued MATADOR in an action packed 2 minute gory Title duel.  
Congratulations to the victor, and to the vanquished for making a good fight of it.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

     Sorry there isn't a Slow Arena News this time, but the choice was no news, or
     delay the whole newsletter.  I chose "no news."  It's good news, isn't it? --
     Ketchum

Hollan Innis -- Only when used improperly are the runes considered "letters!"  The
runes are not, nor were they ever, meant for writing per se, but for communication
between gods and men.  Each rune has a deep meaning of its own, independent of one
another, and Mannaz signifies "man" the intelligent, rational mind and describes the
Northern European folk as being the progeny of the gods.  In essence, Mannaz reflects
the perfected man or ubermensch--much like myself! -- Mannaz Thorsson

Phillip The Bird -- Perhaps you just do not understand fight throwing at its optimum?
-- Horrid Holly, Blue Velvet, and Doc

Egan Forn -- Well, humm...it's good because it's bad; it is easy to organize because
you can depend on it being dis-organized.  Or at least Blackstorm knows how to whip
it into something useful, and I guess that's all that matters.  Don't worry about
things that you cannot comprehend for that is chaotic. -- Chaos Warrior (grin)

Welcome to my fellow Arena brothers from Arkers.  Glad Zit and Zig Zag stayed. --
Chaos Warrior
P.S.  Too bad the others left.

Z-man -- Howdy!  Now would you and Curator be pulling a fast one on me?  Are you the
one and the same, or am I crazy as usual? -- Blackstorm

Blue Blazes -- Oho!  A scout.  That was a good try, but I've never lost to one of
your style yet. -- Chaos Warrior
P.S.  Sorry about the neck.

Phillip the Bird -- And slap it into a gilded cage, too. -- Ellita Fess
P.S.  Provided the gilding is over steel bars!  No solid gold, he'd get OUT too
easily.

Primus -- I don't mind real beer being a golem, I can live with that, but I thought
it'd be masculine, not neuter.  Are you sure? -- Mirta

Juninho -- Go kick around an imported football, why don't you? -- Dannia tyl Sio

Sandblaster -- Ah, it's you. -- Kyra

Cannonball -- If I'd let loose the desperate wail sooner, would it have put you off
your stroke? -- Gilia Harn
P.S.  I hate dying.
P.P.S.  And tell Ketchum that I'll complain if I want to!

An Alastarian Deserter?  Whoopee-doo.  That is JUST what I wanted for the Equinox,
which can't get here too soon to please me. -- Hollan Innis

Rat-kebab. -- Egan Forn

Amazing how many rats there are in this place! -- Snowfall

And it's really unfair that the Captured Pirate Kin should learn four skills and me
NOTHING.  He pirated those skills, dammit! -- Sunflash

Fighter Ace -- I don't know whose I'm coming into, but I don't THINK it's my own. --
Mirta

Ed. -- No.  I think the Commission forces him to use an inhibitor. -- Egan Forn

     Aw, where's the fun in that! -- Ed.

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to announce with glad hearts that Heathen
Hatebred is no longer just a friend, but also an alliance-mate.  Heathen brings a lot
with him to our alliance.  His experience, talent, and loyalty will be a great
benefit to us all.  Welcome Heathen; may all our enemies' blood continue to flow
freely! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

The Olympics have arrived!

The Mordanti Olympics, having been gone for six years, have returned to the Mordanti
Alliance, sponsored by Amicitia Primoris.  Teams have competed against each other for
recognition and notoriety four times in the past.  It is far past time for the fifth
Mordanti Olympics to be held.  The Mordanti Olympics shall be held in the Mordant
arena (DM-1) from May 1st (T544) through Oct 30 (T557).  There will be a
'registration period' lasting until T543, where teams will be allowed to register by
activating in Mordant and declaring their participation in the personals.  Rules will
be posted in the Mordant arena (DM-1) newsletter no later than T543, but shall be
available online before then.  An announcement will be made as to where they will be
posted.  Prizes will be awarded to the winners.
