                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Mantor on a mangonel, you people, did you forget what day it was?  I bet every 
warrior who fought today (all twenty-seven of you) was on maintenance and not getting 
a bit of manager input!  Fourteen fights TOTAL, no challenges, no avoids, no deaths, 
no Champ's column, and damned nearly no personals.  At least Free Blades DOES get 
challenges and avoids.  I can see why some other spy reporters get so bored they let 
the golems carry it.  But I have taken a vow:  Today the spy report shall be of 
interest, if nothing else is.  And it'll probably be the LONGEST part of the 
newsletter, too.

     ARIA (75-3012) (25-28-1,75) of DARK TOADS fought GREGORY GOYLE (74-3497) (32-38-
1,88) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  ARIA was bested by GREGORY GOYLE in a 4 minute bout.  This 
was an amazing crime against good taste, as Greg was wearing this really horrid 
yellow-green tunic in a pattern of overlapping shingles--  Oh, really?  A snake's 
scales?  Well, it was still a rotten color.  Look what it did to his complexion!  
Those Kannari should never wear, um, acid green.  Better a blue-green.  Remember that 
next time, Greg.  In fact, ask Aria about it, as she seems to have a much more 
flattering color.
     MOCKINGBIRD (75-3073) (24-14-0,121) of DARK TOADS fought DESPERADO (77-2459) 
(22-10-2,96) of POSSE.  MOCKINGBIRD was viciously subdued by DESPERADO in an exciting 
4 minute brutal contest.  Well, what can you expect, eh?  The Ratani ARE vicious, or 
they wouldn't spend all that time and energy fighting among themselves.  And, of 
course, by his very name, one knows that Desperado is going to be vicious to begin 
with.  Or to end with.
     VINCENT CRABBE (74-3498) (39-32-2,161) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE fought JAMMIES (74-
2829) (71-79-1,157) of DARKLINGS.  VINCENT CRABBE was savagely defeated by JAMMIES in 
an exciting 3 minute bloody match.  One could call this a "home-town match," but 
these two warriors never crossed swords in Dayla Kiv.  Good thing, too, as I can just 
imagine the effect it would have had on Jammies's temper if Vince had made some of 
the cracks THERE that he opened the fight with HERE.  And, really, if that, um, 
outfit is pajamas, I'll eat it with mayonaise.  Or however that is spelled.  Maybe I 
should stick to ranch dressing.
     CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-196) (62-94-0,174) of THE DRAGON FIST fought TORYN TYL 
DAGEDA (74-2777) (70-80-4,142) of SAND DANCERS.  CORT NIGHTJEWEL beat TORYN TYL 
DAGEDA in a popular 1 minute melee.  Not a surprise, really, as these Fistic people 
are known to be strongly anti-Rirorni.
     DAMORETH STENN (65-6105) (48-57-0,164) of SAND DANCERS fought TOM RIDDLE (74-
3501) (38-32-2,177) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  DAMORETH STENN was vanquished by TOM RIDDLE 
in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  That was fast!  Is this a case of Tom's famous red-
headed temper getting out of hand?

     KHORA THE SMALL (78-519) (133-143-3,201) of SAND DANCERS fought THOMAS (82-
14150) (18-25-2,167) of TOADS OF KRONDUR II.  KHORA THE SMALL won victory over THOMAS 
in an action packed 3 minute fight.  They tell me that with Khora, maybe with all fox 
women, I wouldn't know, this kind of thing is a courting gesture.  Though why a woman 
like Khora would court a neuter golem I can't imagine, so maybe I'm wrong about it.
     WAIS (65-6447) (29-42-0,185) of DARK TOADS fought NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (81-96-
0,197) of DARKLINGS.  WAIS was vanquished by NIGHTCAP in a 1 minute uneven duel.  In 
a much-appreciated (by Wais) move, Nightcap did NOT attempt to pry the jewel out of 
the Toad's forehead.  Can anyone enlighten us as to the purpose or significance of 
that magnificent ruby, by the way?
     DRACO MALFOY (74-3500) (42-19-1,194) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE fought NIGHTFALL (74-
2421) (112-102-4,202) of DARKLINGS.  DRACO MALFOY was handily defeated by NIGHTFALL 
in a 1 minute uneven fight.  Bad timing for you, Draco, as the moon was rising 
(somewhere) just as your fight began, and we all know that Nightfall (who wanted to 
have her name changed to Moonrise but it didn't come off) is very sensitive to that 
sort of thing.  Sort of lunotropic.  Selenotropic?
     TAIRIKIA (51-4247) (88-85-0,190) of SAND DANCERS fought THE QUICKLING (70-1669) 
(61-135-2,163) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  TAIRIKIA overpowered THE QUICKLING in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute one-sided struggle.  Hmm.  We all have heard, of course, that the 
Rirorni have no use for dwarves, but unless the crowd was composed entirely of 
Rirorni, how do we explain the appeal of this victory?  Can it be that other people 
share this antipathy?

     CYLADIA (51-1122) (109-121-1,181) of SKAITHVARN fought DARLINA (74-2995) (48-37-
3,191) of SAND DANCERS.  CYLADIA slimly won victory over DARLINA in a 2 minute duel.  
But then, Cyladia is slim, and Darlina, though a fine figure of a woman, is... well 
padded.  So what other kind of victory COULD Cyladia win, eh?  She will be giving 
diet tips at the side door after the fights.
     DEADBOLT (70-1664) (96-107-2,210) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought BRAND (82-13289) 
(25-23-1,190) of TOADS OF AMBER III.  DEADBOLT defeated BRAND in a 3 minute bloody 
match.  Ohhh, somebody is anti-elf here!  Elf blood all over the place.  What a mess!  
But you know, it looks a lot like any other kind of blood....
     ZALMARDARIN (78-312) (62-98-3,243) of THE DRAGON FIST fought VILLAINOUS INFORMER 
(107-23) (0-0-0,181) of the Bored Fans.  ZALMARDARIN vanquished VILLAINOUS INFORMER 
in a popular 1 minute mismatched brawl.  That'll teach the Informer to go shouting 
insults from the stands.  Or maybe not, as they seem very resistant to instruction.
     KYRLANIA (70-2327) (79-105-1,215) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought MAD DOC WILLIAMS 
(77-2432) (28-7-0,191) of POSSE.  KYRLANIA demolished MAD DOC WILLIAMS in a popular 1 
minute one-sided melee.  Well, elves are said to be very down on insanity, and what 
is Mad Doc if not insane?  Heck, what are any of you out there getting carved up 
every two weeks if not insane?

     TALON WARSMITH (99-101) (91-92-8,254) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought BAT (74-2742) 
(88-90-1,212) of DARKLINGS.  TALON WARSMITH devastated BAT in a action packed 1 
minute mismatched Title fight.  Somehow, this did not come as a surprise.  Bat, I 
invite you to write a Runner-Up's Column, which we can print as a warrior spotlight 
but it will at least be SOME acknowledgement of the title match.  Thanks.

This has been Larkin,

Vincent Crabbe -- You've got a lot of talent, but you should lose the armor.  You 
need to speed up. -- Bat

Cort Nightjewel -- It just wasn't your day, was it?  Maybe you're more nocturnal by 
nature. -- Nightcap

Tom Riddle -- Unlike your teammate, I think you're the one who needs more armor. -- 
Nightfall

Deadbolt -- You fought really well considering that you obviously didn't care for 
that weapon you were given. -- Cyladia

King Love -- Well, I didn't like losing to an apparently less experienced warrior, 
but you were looking pretty good out there.  Of course, breaking my weapon helped.  
Anyhow... well done. -- Jammies

Talon Warsmith -- Drat.  I keep hoping to hear that a mountain fell on your hairy 
little head and nobody bothered to dig you out.  Oh, well, it could still happen. -- 
Tairikia

Gods, the Vermicious Knid is redheaded!  I might have known. -- Darlina

Uhlek -- You're supposed to pay attention and learn from me. -- Khora the Small

Wais -- Oh, fine, that's JUST what you need more of! -- Damoreth Stenn

The Quickling -- Bah. -- Toryn tyl Dageda

Nightfall -- I suppose that train was okay, but who wants Amtrack?  I was hoping for 
a classic from the Denver and Rio Grande Western. -- Tairikia

Nightcap -- I didn't get enough sleep the night before. -- Toryn tyl Dageda
