                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Much has changed in STORM ROCK since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with DELAWARE RUN?  
He actually beat DARQUE FORCES' THE BRIDE, and walked away with 20 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at SHEPHERDS.  JOSH lost 13 points to LHISSON.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe JOSH will provide more easy wins...  Another fighter 
(EVANGELION 33-26-1) challenged another Duelmaster (MOIST TOWELETTE 68-43-4).  Life 
goes on.  I'm sure STORM ROCK is excited about EVANGELION, the new Duelmaster from 
IMPROVED ILLUSION.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't 
it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into 
the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, NOMADIC TRIBE!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at DARQUE FORCES 
ain't reelin'!  NOMADIC TRIBE's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, RINDEL!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you. 
Maybe SHEPHERDS' GAD is one of those guys who likes pain, or something.  That's what 
he'll get next week, after challenging up 76 to FOUR OF SPADES.  GAD found one way to 
advance:  challenging FOUR OF SPADES and losing, but getting 1 points.  No brain, no 
pain.  ALMOST PRETTY didn't quite know what to make of a challenge she received from 
VIRGINIA, NO SANTA of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS, who is 25 points below her.  VIRGINIA, NO 
SANTA perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was overcame by ALMOST PRETTY and 
ended up with 150 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  STORM 
ROCK is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

     Our fights are being held up for the completion of the Freeze, which, as you
     probably know, is in preparation for the upcoming tourney.  I told the
     Commission that since WE don't do the tournies, there was no reason for us to
     wait, but they weren't buying that.  They weren't even taking it as a gift.
     Bummer.  So, in order that the fights shall be fought and reported with all
     possible speed once they DO happen, I am setting this newsletter to go with the
     computer spy report.  This time.  Sorry. -- Larkin

Shiny Penny -- The Medium Shield was a novelty act.  Y'know, kind of like our
fighting style. -- Delaware Run

Assur -- I have neither cash nor credit, so you'll have to accept thin gratitude.
Kind of like writing out advice on paper and giving that as a tip for a waitress. --
Suave

Heinrik -- Congrats on the fluke!  Now you get to hope for flukes against my
superiors.  For what it's worth, they won't let me play up there either. -- Froo-Froo

Ta-da!  Personals!

     And very good ones, too.  Thanks!

Four of Spades -- Thank you so much.  After turn 29, I had questions as to whether
your A+ teaching credential was going to need to be downgraded.  But you made up for
it last turn!  You are the best! -- Gad

Almost Pretty -- I don't understand this challenge to lose thing.  Assur clearly has
something screwy going on in his head.  I'm guessing he's been hit too many times in
practice by his bashers. -- Virginia

Pinch Blister -- I don't have the blisters, but my hands are black and blue from all
the practice I've had hitting weapons with them. -- Josh
P.S.  Assur, please let me use a weapon again!!!

Azaghal -- Thanks for the win.  Always a pleasant experience.  Makes me feel like I'm
worth more than I am. -- Shiny Penny
