                                (Consortium recent grads May 2008)

     This information and these numbers are posted for informational purposes only.
Mainly developed for training/learning in DM93, The Newby Arena, the posting is also
being made in selected other arenas.
     This collection of appx 25 warriors includes the most recent, without exception,
ADM Consortium graduates.  Most have zero or limited tournament fights, but a couple
of the "better" warriors do have reasonable tournament time.  All of these warriors
were developed and "played" in varying active DM arenas.

                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

     Have you ever tried embalming a porcupine?  With all those quills?  It is 'yucky
work" as we call it in the trade. but I persevered.
     A little history lesson for you.  I was originally created in DM2 under the
Intimidator stable (Consortium) and Mr. T was my manager.  I had some fine successes.
After a 9-0 start, my very first loss was to Amber of G&L, a slasher.  I graduated at
32-4 having held 16 DM titles.  Back then, tournaments were not the thing, so I only
attended two, with no TVs.  Moving on to Crysalis, I have since fought many, many
times.  I have TV'd ADM twice and Eligibles twice.  (The Consortium's first ever
Eligible TV.)  I have held the Tower Guardian title on five different occasions.
(For 2, 1, 5, and 1 so far times.)  In all cases except one, where I sat out the
throne, one of Crip's warriors has beaten me for the title or kept me from winning
the title.  The rat!
     I have come a long way from my original 11-18-9-7-19-7-13 makeup, and have
always fought far better than the numbers might indicate.  It was all because of the
teachings of my first manager, Mr. T.
     Somewhere along the ADM way, The Consortium gave up the show, retiring from DM
and sending all warriors and teams to Soultaker.  To this day that dastardly
Soultaker owns the rights to Mr. T and The Intimidators.  When The Consortium Elders
convinced Soultaker to return me to them, after their short hiatus, I had to take on
a different team name, and RSI assigned me to the Dark Toads stable in which I now
reside.
     So here I am, ready to wrap you in swaddling clothes and stuff you in a coffin.
Gotta love this occupation!

            Mortician, Tower Guardian Of Crysalis

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     This is not a good day for me to be sitting here writing a spy report, probably
something to do with the fish fry last night (I never did care for fish), but my
dedication is great, and also they pay me to do this.  They do not pay me to lie
around feeling crummy.  So, in somewhat brief, here is the report:

The Family Tree was most avoided, and Royal Flush avoided them more than any.

Our Tower Guardian, Mortician, holder of the Crysaline Helm, got the most challenges,
numbering five.

We had twenty-seven fights, three of them involving standbys.  Fourteen were
challenge matches, and three of them involved tv challenges!  Excellent!

     MAGNETO (34-1665) (15-18-0,52) of X-MEN fought DESPERADO (28-1152) (27-31-1,71)
of DODGE BULLETS.  MAGNETO was beaten by DESPERADO in an action packed 1 minute
competition.  I'm sure Desperado was thrilled at this unusual outcome.
     GLUM (54-2766) (17-7-1,61) of JANIX fought GHOST DANCER (28-3365) (29-19-0,84)
of DODGE BULLETS.  GLUM was handily defeated by GHOST DANCER in a 1 minute uneven
bout.  This is what happens when a team cuts itself off from its roots in Basic.  Or
so some theorists claim.
     NECROMANCER (78-2520) (16-3-1,52) of MAGIC ARTISTS fought CAPTURED PIRATE KING
(106-2) (0-0-0,30) of the College of Mimes.  NECROMANCER overpowered CAPTURED PIRATE
KING in an exciting 1 minute uneven match.  Is this an omen for the adventuring Magic
Artist?
     WYVERN (82-29373) (13-5-0,70) of DARK TOADS 04W fought TOTTI (17-5991) (16-7-
2,85) of ITALIAN FOOTBALL.  WYVERN overpowered TOTTI in a popular 1 minute uneven
fight.  Who are these people?  Where (besides Aljafir and Dwes Eg) did they come
from?  Will they stay?  Will they talk?  Time will show.

     ROXANNE DE'MORRE (50-3449) (32-26-0,92) of DRUID'S GROVE fought DON FRANCIS (30-
4619) (15-7-0,68) of LENPROS.  ROXANNE DE'MORRE was defeated by DON FRANCIS in a 2
minute duel.  Tell us all about it, Frankie.
     PRIVATE ROOM (31-3620) (23-12-0,156) of MILITARY MAYHEM fought BLACK FLAG (82-
46046) (29-16-3,150) of TONGUE N CHEEK.  PRIVATE ROOM was subdued by BLACK FLAG in a
1 minute fight.  The private room had bugs?  Roaches, maybe?  We try to do better
here.
     RUBBER KNIFE (57-2546) (21-6-1,156) of USELESS TOOLS fought CHUCK NORRIS (71-
993) (18-7-1,126) of BIG BAD BRAWLERS.  RUBBER KNIFE bested CHUCK NORRIS in a 1
minute bout.  The whappity-whap effect, no doubt.  You'd be amazed how fast that
rubber blade flaps back and forth as a result of ONE blow to be parried.
     HARI-KARI (73-3049) (23-5-0,175) of WAY TO GO! II fought SAMURAI STRIKER (71-62)
(20-17-1,125) of DOGS OF WAR.  HARI-KARI won victory over SAMURAI STRIKER in a 1
minute fray.  This has a weird sort of symmetry, although the Striker didn't die in
the match.  Still, we can't have EVERYTHING, can we?

     LAND OF FLUSH (11-4373) (15-12-0,154) of CONSORTIUM CRAP fought YOUNG JOAN (28-
3534) (28-28-1,111) of DODGE BULLETS.  LAND OF FLUSH viciously subdued YOUNG JOAN in
a popular 2 minute gruesome match.  "Viciously subdued"!  I foresee dire consequences
for the Dodger in her adventure.
     AVONSIDE (13-3927) (37-50-1,203) of KIWI CONNECTION fought BOARISH YELTSIN (5-
3109) (72-46-2,203) of PARTY ANIMALS.  AVONSIDE was devastated by BOARISH YELTSIN in
a popular 1 minute one-sided contest.  Some people don't know how to party, and who's
to say they don't have the right idea?  It was partying last night that resulted in
me feeling second rate today, after all.
     RUBBER KNIFE (54-2038) (51-37-1,195) of USELESS TOOLS fought AMBER WOLFWALKER
(106-11) (0-0-0,220) of the College of Mimes.  RUBBER KNIFE was overpowered by AMBER
WOLFWALKER in a popular 2 minute one-sided bout.  A tad embarrassing for the Rubber
one, as the Wolfwalker seems to have taken him for a chewy toy.
     DUTCH TREAT (26-1841) (109-36-2,315) of WORLDWIDE GORE fought CLOTTO (106-25)
(0-0-0,181) of the College of Mimes.  DUTCH TREAT devastated CLOTTO in an exciting 2
minute brutal one-sided brawl.  Providing us with a demonstration of the iron
discipline of the College.  For true to the rules, Clotto didn't scream or even groan
under that brutal punishment.
     RAVISHING REDBUD (52-3197) (36-13-0,228) of FLOWER GIRLS fought JACK VALTRAEDS
(47-407) (114-70-2,196) of ROYAL FLUSH.  RAVISHING REDBUD unbelievably bested JACK
VALTRAEDS in an exciting 9 minute fray.  Why is this hard to believe?  Jaded old men
are susceptible to the likes of the Ravishing One.

Ah!  The challenge matches are upon us, and upon those challenged.
     CAFFREY'S (21-4748) (17-3-1,84) of REAL BEER challenged SERB SMASHER (71-1393)
(18-9-2,89) of DOGS OF WAR.  Up 5.  CAFFREY'S slaughtered SERB SMASHER in a 1 minute
mismatched Challenge bout.  Some people take a very hard line with disrespectors of
cheese.  At least, it seems to be a cheesy issue.
     MIKE TYSON (71-360) (20-8-1,45) of BIG BAD BRAWLERS challenged AMELIA (28-3417)
(23-8-1,65) of DODGE BULLETS.  Up 20.  MIKE TYSON handily defeated AMELIA in a 1
minute one-sided Challenge conflict.  How ungentlemanly of Mr. Tyson!  But it is,
after all, his job.
     FRED BEAR (47-5348) (24-15-0,122) of THE BEAR'S PAW challenged PUPPY ON PATROL
(71-1613) (20-11-0,118) of DOGS OF WAR.  Down 4.  FRED BEAR demolished PUPPY ON
PATROL in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge brawl.  No more than I expected, and perhaps
less.  After all, one hears of bears actually eating bumptious puppies!
     DEVIL'S ADVOCATE (68-4666) (14-4-0,107) of BLOOD 4 THE MASSES challenged BILLY
LILLY (28-3416) (27-20-1,111) of DODGE BULLETS.  Up 4.  DEVIL'S ADVOCATE demolished
BILLY LILLY in a 1 minute Challenge competition.  I would guess from this that Billy
is not going to be favorably disposed toward the advocated devil.
     XYCO (54-2899) (20-11-3,135) of JANIX challenged GERRICK GRIMM (50-3530) (19-21-
1,119) of DRUID'S GROVE.  Down 16.  XYCO overpowered GERRICK GRIMM in a popular 1
minute brutal one-sided Challenge melee.  Will this be followed by an assault on the
grove in question with axes and saws?

     BEAR ACUDA (47-4995) (33-30-1,205) of THE BEAR'S PAW challenged NEWT GINGRICH
(5-3399) (89-31-0,224) of PARTY ANIMALS.  Up 19.  BEAR ACUDA lost to NEWT GINGRICH in
a popular 2 minute Challenge fight.  This one is a mystery to me, mostly because I
had to make a quick exit to a private corner during it.  You know how these things
can go when you eat a bad fish.
     FIVE GOLDEN RINGS (16-4331) (39-10-0,200) of GOLDEN GLADIATORS challenged PAT
(35-2292) (46-47-2,206) of COMMON JOE'S.  Up 6.  FIVE GOLDEN RINGS was viciously
subdued by PAT in a popular 5 minute Challenge duel.  A piece of good work on Pat's
part, and I hope his manager notices.
     KING UVDAHELL (47-1643) (53-30-1,188) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged BLOODY SKIN (20-
1986) (39-35-1,193) of THE FAMILY TREE.  Up 5.  KING UVDAHELL handily defeated BLOODY
SKIN in a 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.  I don't know just how this fits on the
Family Tree, and I don't think I want to.
     VENEMOUS PORCUPINE (44-288) (86-62-0,210) of D.A. REJECTS challenged MAD CAT (7-
2965) (59-38-6,216) of INSP GADGETS MINIONS.  Up 6.  VENEMOUS PORCUPINE savagely
defeated MAD CAT in a 6 minute Challenge brawl.  She really had her quills ruffled,
eh?  And the Cat is now advised to make "pincushion" his day job.  Is there no
respect?
     GROLSCH (21-5029) (51-10-4,241) of REAL BEER challenged WHEEL OF FORTUNE (25-
2529) (52-54-2,242) of DUELING FOR DOLLARS.  Up 1.  GROLSCH bested WHEEL OF FORTUNE
in a popular 3 minute bloody Challenge duel.  When the wheel spins, sometimes to you
win and sometimes you lose.

Ah twice!  The TV challenges, and congratulations to all those gladiators who managed
to achieve a tourney victor status.
     TINY TIM (60-6042) (27-7-1,172) of CRAZY CREEPS TV challenged BALDER (28-3778)
(31-32-3,178) of VALHALLA.  Up 6.  TINY TIM defeated BALDER in a crowd pleasing 5
minute bloody Challenge duel.  Obviously a hard match, but the musical accompaniment
was superb.
     DAIRY QUEEN (47-2685) (79-47-3,196) of ROYAL FLUSH TV challenged DUNEDIN (14-
3703) (33-51-0,198) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  Up 2.  DAIRY QUEEN luckily beat DUNEDIN in
an exciting 2 minute Challenge melee.  Where was the luck in this?  The Queen
obviously knew exactly what she was doing.
     PRIMUS (21-4975) (56-16-0,237) of REAL BEER TV challenged WEINERMUN (37-2635)
(62-58-3,247) of ALL THE MUN'S MEN.  Up 10.  PRIMUS bested WEINERMUN in a crowd
pleasing 3 minute gruesome Challenge fight.  Ah.  This was, I have no doubt, part of
the problem at the fish fry last night.  There were "beer brats."  A mistake.  I'm
not sure they were even suitable for fishbait.

For the title, the five-times-challenged holder of the Crysaline Helm versus the
unlucky challenger:
     BLOODBATH (60-704) (68-58-2,297) of BASKET WEAVING 101 challenged MORTICIAN (2-
3890) (83-20-1,323) of DARK TOADS.  Up 26.  BLOODBATH was savagely defeated by
MORTICIAN in a 7 minute Challenge Title fight.

     Substitute formaldehyde for blood.  Congratulations to all for being present and
sitting through this spy report.

Look at all those Crip Creations.  Crysallis = Crip? -- The Consortium Elders

Crazy Creeps avoid Bear's Paws because they hate losing.  Get it? -- The Crazy Creeps
Scribe

     What a silly reason.

Little Devil -- It is like a whole organization you are playing with, so be mighty
careful. -- Don Francis

Black Flag -- Thank you for tip toeing through the tulips with me. -- Tiny Tim

Venomous Porcupine -- Now that was NOT easy.  All those quills .... -- Mortician

     She never promised you a rose garden.

Dutch Treat -- Orange Crush is out.  Diet Cola is in.  I am a Tab fan myself. -- The
Consortium Elder's Elder

Jorja -- Of course!  "Rocket up!"  Where is my vocabulary when it is needed? -- Brand

Dairy Queen -- Your useless back up weapon?  Why, I ate it, of course. -- Ravishing
Redbud

Mortician -- I'm not dead yet, no reason to be trying to dissect me. -- Venemous
Porcupine

Loogie Clap -- Don't get depressed.  Retirement can be an honour, though remember,
our style matchups were never meant to be in your favour. -- Hari-Kari

Fred Bear -- Frankly, that was a lot closer than I was expecting. -- Hari-Kari

Bloodbath -- Welcome back to a great name from the past.  Hmm, time to add another
name to the avoiding list. -- Jack Valtraeds

The Wheat King -- Hey, that's supposed to be my Battle Axe ending the fight! -- Sits
on His Duff

Pat -- I'm sure you were a political foe of mine once upon a time. -- Newt Gingrich

Wheel of Fortune -- And still you spin more stat raises.  What's this place coming
to? -- Dairy Queen

     You'd probably feel better not knowing.

Weinermun -- Sure, pick on the big guy. -- Bull Durham

Mad Cat -- Eek!  Another perma-avoid on the horizon. -- Hunzicker Bowl

Chuck Norris -- Your style is of no gain in the pasture of life. -- Base on Bulls

Young Joan -- You remind me of a little spatula I once knew. -- Rubber Knife

Aglibol -- Phew, I'm grateful for your weapon choice.  I don't think I could have won
the fight without it. -- Land of Flush

Gerrick Grimm -- Oh well, thanks for the duel, but it's back to retirement for me. --
Steve McQueen

Puppy on Patrol -- What do you patrol?   Newspapers stretched across the floor? --
Cuba

     Somebody'd got to do it.

Samurai Striker -- A most important skill learn for me, I hope you feel the same. --
Private Room

Devil's Advocate -- The sands are no court of law?  Give me another stat raise and
let's try again. -- Caffrey's

Oberon -- Welcome to Crysalis.  I've heard this place is a little tougher than
Chimlevtal. -- Totti

     It certainly has more personals.

Xyco -- Ouch.  Jorja says that "she misses your team in Trocar."  I think you should
go back to Trocar WITH your team.  That was not an encounter I care to repeat. --
Billy Lilly

Rubber Knife -- Nonsense!  What do managers know?  I'm sure you're just the thing for
spreading mayo on a sandwich. -- Young Joan
P.S.  It could be your day job.

Magneto -- Eh?  One of those strange, elvish names, I suppose.  I hear that Monuntial
is full of elves. -- Ghost Dancer
P.S.  The inner meaning behind my name is classified on a "need to know" basis.  Do
you need to know, Ketchum?

The Rirorni Soldier, who DID steal his daddy's armor to fight, is pathetic.  Maybe
when he grows up--if he lives that long--he'll be dangerous.  Now?  Not much. --
Amelia

Serb Smasher -- So!  You're anti-cheese, are you? -- Desperado
P.S.  Okay, so I got smashed last night, big deal.  I didn't do it on purpose, but
the goat cheese I was served with my pita bread and olives was, ah, strong.
Probably fermented.  Delicious, mind you, but strong.
