                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

     Thanks to Javelin for stepping aside and allowing me the chance to say my final
farewell to this arena before retiring in Primus.  Since most of the top contenders
are supposed to be going off to Primus this turn, my stablemate Dutch Treat will be
challenging Javelin, with the expectation that the winner of this fight will take the
throne on recognition.  Of course, someone else may appear post-split with more
recognition and stumble into the throne themselves.

     "Final Farewell"

King Uvdahell
Royal Flush
Tower Guardian of Crysalis

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, we have snow, we have fights, and we have the solstice barreling down on
us.  What shall I talk about?  Ah... the fights.  Okay.
     You've done well, Crysalis.  Forty fights--no regional is matching that these
days.  Four standbys, not a bad percentage.  Fourteen challenges, one of them TV.
This is all good.
     I note that Hagar Bluetooth had the largest point gain at twenty-two points.
     Seci had the largest drop, at fourteen points.  Not too bad, really.
     Black & Blue was most avoided, with Royal Flush doing most of the avoiding.
     Huntsman got the most challenges.

A quick run-down on the challenge matches:
     HAGAR BLUETOOTH (10-5850) (22-3-1,73) of VIKINGS challenged SCUMMY BOY (73-3371)
(16-7-0,90) of THE FAMILY TREE.  Up 17.  HAGAR BLUETOOTH savagely defeated SCUMMY BOY
in a popular 8 minute Challenge duel.  A rewarding fight for Hagar, and we salute
him.
     LORD EXETER (81-932) (22-14-0,71) of DRAGONBANE GUILD challenged SECI (28-4464)
(22-17-3,83) of PHANTACITY.  Up 12.  LORD EXETER demolished SECI in a crowd pleasing
1 minute one-sided Challenge brawl.  Exeter didn't do so badly here, and we salute
HIM, too.
     GURU GNU (38-4784) (12-1-0,97) of HILLTOP GURUS challenged CRIMSON MIST (8-5047)
(31-21-1,129) of BLOOD RITES.  Up 132.  GURU GNU was overcome by CRIMSON MIST in an
exciting 1 minute Challenge contest.  The guru business doesn't seem to prep a man,
or at least a gnu, for the Isle, hmm?
     KRONOS GRIMHOLT (7-6011) (22-9-1,148) of SENTINELS challenged ZOOLANDER (39-
3523) (27-19-1,149) of WITLESS WONDERS.  Up 1.  KRONOS GRIMHOLT subdued ZOOLANDER in
a crowd pleasing 3 minute Challenge match.  Maybe Kronos should change his name to
GRIN-holt.  He certainly had a big one when he left the sands today.

     BASE ON BULLS (73-3101) (30-11-4,172) of THE BULLS challenged LAPHROAIG (31-
4529) (29-24-0,175) of SINGLE MALTS.  Up 3.  BASE ON BULLS beat LAPHROAIG in a
popular 3 minute gory Challenge melee.  Ah, bulls, you can pretty much count on them
to "bull through" to whatever they want.
     BULL FROG (73-4547) (31-14-0,176) of THE BULLS challenged ROXANNE DE'MORRE (50-
3449) (46-44-0,177) of DRUID'S GROVE.  Up 1.  BULL FROG won victory over ROXANNE
DE'MORRE in a popular 2 minute Challenge fight.  Even when they're half frog.
     MONKEY BUSINESS (25-4040) (34-18-1,190) of PRIMATES-R-US challenged YOUNG JOAN
(28-3534) (40-48-1,193) of DODGE BULLETS.  Up 3.  MONKEY BUSINESS viciously subdued
YOUNG JOAN in a popular 2 minute Challenge duel.  That Joan, she's too strait-laced,
doesn't know how to deal with monkey business, you know?
     HUNZICKER BOWL (23-4182) (43-24-2,192) of SKI TAOS challenged SERB SMASHER (71-
1393) (24-17-2,194) of DOGS OF WAR.  Up 2.  HUNZICKER BOWL overcame SERB SMASHER in
an action packed 1 minute Challenge melee.  For some reason, I keep connecting Serb
with feta cheese.  Weird, but the unconscious mind is like that.

     HARI-KARI (73-3049) (45-8-0,190) of WAY TO GO! II challenged BLACK FLAG (82-
46046) (43-34-3,200) of TONGUE N CHEEK.  Up 10.  HARI-KARI slimly won victory over
BLACK FLAG in a 4 minute Challenge competition.  So, when Hari finished, we had
sliced tongue for sandwiches.  I never cared much for it myself, but maybe I haven't
had the right kind?
     GENERAL PUBLIC (31-3112) (25-22-1,182) of MILITARY MAYHEM challenged LOOGIE CLAP
(82-46049) (32-27-2,191) of TONGUE N CHEEK.  Up 9.  GENERAL PUBLIC was devastated by
LOOGIE CLAP in a 2 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  The Public is always being
devastated by something.  Just got to ignore 'em.
     BULL DURHAM (5-4324) (35-20-1,188) of PARTY ANIMALS challenged GALENA (28-3505)
(28-20-0,190) of BOXOROX.  Up 2.  BULL DURHAM defeated GALENA in a crowd pleasing 3
minute Challenge match.  And everyone's invited to the party afterward.
     BODDINGTON'S (21-5035) (25-15-0,189) of REAL BEER challenged TAMMY FAYE (39-
3520) (26-20-0,190) of WITLESS WONDERS.  Up 1.  BODDINGTON'S vanquished TAMMY FAYE in
a popular 1 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  Ah, well, you can't expect a woman to
hold her beer.  Ah, some women, anyway.

The TV challenge:  THE REFEREE (45-1091) (76-49-4,223) of AVID FANS TV challenged
AVONSIDE (13-3927) (44-59-1,247) of KIWI CONNECTION.  Up 14.  THE REFEREE was
viciously subdued by AVONSIDE in a 2 minute Challenge fight.  Fighting isn't like
being a ref.  Harder work, and it hurts.

For the title:  2) DUTCH TREAT (26-1841) (128-38-2,329) of WORLDWIDE GORE challenged
JAVELIN (82-33234) (18-5-0,250) of THE WEAPONS.  Down 79.  DUTCH TREAT subdued
JAVELIN in an exciting 4 minute gory Challenge Title melee.  A broken spear, a new
duelmaster, and we prepare to enter the new year.  Greetings to all present and a
salute for your dedication in BEING present.  See you in 2011.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

     I'm not sure if some of you are writing personals in dialect, or what, but the
     rule here is:  When in doubt, leave it as you find it. -- Ketchum

Uh, well, we are in a confused state at the moment.  Surely we will fix our persad
situation and strategize some more warriors soon.  The Primus competition has us
somewhat befuddled. -- The Consortium Elders

The Referee -- I thought that you were suppost to be fare in a fight, but I know
there was some dirty punches in are fight. -- Devil's Advocate

Fighter Ace -- Luckily you are not that good on the ground. -- Avonside

Taos -- How does it fill to have your skin peeled back the way I do it. -- Skin
Peeler

Hagar Bluetooth -- Your Vikings skin is to tough for me. -- Mosquito

Lord Exeter -- I guess you are all payed up on you bills. -- Credit card

Primus -- This is a great last fight for us.  Beer and Hot Dogs. -- Weinermun

All -- Like Crip, I am losing 3 of my guys to Primus.  Weinermun, Pat, and Skin
Peeler will be leaving, but as you can see I have others coming up to take there
place. -- the Mun

Devil's Advocate -- I'm no judge, but gotcha! -- The Referee

Avonside -- Okay, so maybe Crip's not so surprised anymore. -- Fighter Ace

Young Joan -- You are making me feel like an old Pope. -- Paul II

Skin Peeler -- I feel as if I've tumbled across some moguls. -- Taos

Anvil Ironfist -- Who says I wield a useless weapon? -- Disco Queen

Blue Blood -- You, monsieur, make a terrible pirate. -- Black Jack Shellack

Galena -- Sorry about that, but it's not too often one can sit in the Challenger
Champs with more kills than losses.  I think Grolsch was Crip's last to accomplish
the feat for him, and I'm only his 3rd to do so. -- Trash Can

Binge N Purge -- Too much butterscotch schnapps perhaps??? -- Slippery Nipple

     Euwh.

Crimson Mist -- Wow, I didn't expect to get whacked around like that -- Numbskull

Tundra -- Okay, that puts me at 1-9 against lungers now.  You'd think I'd learn to
quit sticking my neck out where it doesn't belong. -- Adam's Apple

Weinermun -- Now you can have a reprieve from my grinning quarterstaff. -- Primus

Thelonius -- You really must be pissing off the matchup gods. -- Grolsch

     No good offerings in months! -- MUG #48734

Black Flag -- We've not been liking the stats you've been improving of late. -- King
Uvdahell

Tammy Faye -- I wish I could fight in the tournaments like that. -- Land Of Flush

Haze -- Be careful, we bashers are not the easy prey we are always made out to be. --
Totti

Loogie Clap --  I didn't hear you singing. -- Miss Zing

Ghost Dancer -- You should really be a lot harder to hit than that. -- Jive

Pope Paul II -- Mind you don't call ME a heretic! -- Young Joan

Jive -- That was totally confusing. -- Ghost Dancer

Kronos Grimholt -- Hey, when you've been at it as long as I have, you know you can be
grimmer than anybody.  I can be grimmer than anybody.  That's what desperation does.
-- Desperado

Oban -- Tasty, very tasty. -- Billy Lilly

The Smell of It -- Beyond doubt. -- Amelia

Cuba -- An idiom unfamiliar to me.  What exactly did you have in mind? -- Young Joan
P.S.  I seldom hop, why would it be better or more fun on an island?

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 14-16, 2011.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-894-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), free 
airport shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--please make your reservation by December 22 
before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and people have been
unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the tournament info 
sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all looking forward to 
it and that we will see you there!
