                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Oh, hullo there.
     We had just 19 fights today -- in or out of the arena, because it was an 
exceptionally peaceful interlude.  No one died, no one avoided, and there was just one 
challenge, thanks as usual to Winning Side.
     WINNING SIDE (6-4276) (16-16-1,40) of OINGO BOINGO challenged DEN'S FAVORITE (33-
3581) (37-29-0,92) of DEMONSPAWN.  WINNING SIDE slimly lost to DEN'S FAVORITE in a 7 
minute Challenge fight.  It was close.  I was rooting for the kid.  And thanks for 
writing an ad, W.S.
     The Title fight was a random match.  I guess Sweet Child doesn't care enough to 
challenge, or to write anything.  SWEET CHILD (53-6040) (65-42-0,231) of EXCELLENT 
TUNES fought MIKEL (6-6190) (88-98-3,193) of THE LADY'S LIST.  SWEET CHILD won victory 
over MIKEL in an action packed 2 minute brutal Title battle.  And so, Sweet Child is 
still our top Parry-Lunge.  Mikel is still top Slasher.
     MAJESTIC (14-5013) (17-2-0,220) of THING OF BEAUTY fought ASSUR (18-7821) (108-
149-2,192) of ARROGANCE.  MAJESTIC was defeated by ASSUR in a crowd pleasing 2 minute 
bloody duel.  Assur is top Basher.
     DIGITALIS (33-6862) (39-49-1,200) of OBSIDIAN HALL fought PHOENIX (10-2616) (72-
68-1,205) of DRAGON LORDS.  DIGITALIS was savagely defeated by PHOENIX in an exciting 
8 minute bloody fight.  Digitalis is top P-R, and he does make the style look good.  
Phoenix was voted this turn's favorite fighter, I suppose because he got tired in a 
dramatic way?
     EBONY (10-3116) (70-53-0,206) of DRAGON LORDS fought WARDRA (82-56471) (33-13-
1,191) of BLOODHAMMER CLAN.  EBONY was viciously subdued by WARDRA in a popular 4 
minute bloody duel.  Sometimes Wardra is a stylemaster, but not this time.
     THE KING (32-5968) (33-34-1,204) of IT'S GOOD TO BE... fought SHEWISH GIANT (104-
25) (0-0-0,181) of  .  THE KING overpowered SHEWISH GIANT in a popular 1 minute 
gruesome mismatched brawl.  Well done!  Giants are hard to bet. The King is top 
Lunger.
     GLAMDRING (33-2328) (60-49-1,204) of OBSIDIAN HALL fought CRUTCH (84-15431) (26-
11-0,166) of ALIBIS.  GLAMDRING viciously subdued CRUTCH in an action packed 4 minute 
gruesome duel.  Glamdring is our top TP, and he always makes his fights last just long 
enough to be interesting.
     THE DOCTOR (47-8142) (29-11-0,188) of D.A. REJECTS fought AELFWINE (82-23244) 
(23-8-0,170) of BLOODHAMMER CLAN.  THE DOCTOR overpowered AELFWINE in a popular 1 
minute uneven duel.
     MARLBORO MAN (47-8145) (23-14-1,158) of D.A. REJECTS fought PHILTHRY (42-2079) 
(88-84-0,141) of HIGHLANDERS.  MARLBORO MAN was narrowly defeated by PHILTHRY in an 
action packed 2 minute gory match.  Philthry is top Parry-Strike.
     PELIS THE TRUE (42-3469) (75-121-1,172) of HIGHLANDERS fought INDIANA JONES (84-
46411) (21-13-0,102) of 80S MOVIES.  PELIS THE TRUE was overpowered by INDIANA JONES 
in a 1 minute one-sided match.  Mr. True is our overall popularity leader.
     SANDY (85-7914) (22-3-2,102) of LOVELY LADIES fought KHALHUMS DWARF (104-10) (0-
0-0,150) of  .  SANDY was overcome by KHALHUMS DWARF in an exciting 3 minute brutal 
contest.  Ouch!  I like Sandy.
     SHELDON (21-8063) (19-14-1,124) of BIG BANG THEORY fought SIR YVAIN (60-9076) 
(19-12-2,118) of MYTHICAL KNIGHTS.  SHELDON devastated SIR YVAIN in a 1 minute 
mismatched bout.
     WOLVERINE (30-5347) (22-13-1,128) of SUPER HEROES fought LAUGHING BARMAID (104-9) 
(0-0-0,170) of  .  WOLVERINE was handily defeated by LAUGHING BARMAID in a popular 1 
minute uneven fight.  That's a mean girl, all right.
     ZOMBIE BABY (84-53039) (18-5-0,144) of SPIRIT'S SPIRITS fought OLD SAILMAKER 
(104-7) (0-0-0,110) of  .  ZOMBIE BABY vanquished OLD SAILMAKER in a crowd pleasing 2 
minute one-sided fray.
     SPECTRE (84-46450) (18-6-0,109) of SPIRIT'S REALM 2 fought DESIREE (104-23) (20-
15-4,150) of  .  SPECTRE devastated DESIREE in a 1 minute one-sided fight.
     BATTLE BANSHEE (47-7979) (14-12-2,118) of SPECTRAL STEEL fought AAGRIVATOR (33-
8248) (41-16-0,142) of DEMONSPAWN.  BATTLE BANSHEE savagely defeated AAGRIVATOR in an 
exciting 3 minute brutal bout.  The Banshee is our top Striker.
     LEONARD (21-8061) (16-8-1,68) of BIG BANG THEORY fought KYLROI (40-4534) (27-8-
0,75) of GRIZZLED VETERANS.  LEONARD overpowered KYLROI in a 1 minute mismatched 
conflict.  Wow!  And Kylroi is our top Aimed Blow.  He's also this turn's least 
favorite fighter, so... the bad comes with the good, I guess.
     SIR LUCAN (60-9077) (19-18-0,47) of MYTHICAL KNIGHTS fought PHANTASM (43-5048) 
(14-12-1,63) of SPIRIT'S REALM.  SIR LUCAN slimly won victory over PHANTASM in a 
popular 2 minute bout.
     LACY (33-8360) (26-19-1,86) of DEMONSPAWN fought ZYRO (33-8118) (23-16-0,81) of 
OBSIDIAN HALL.  LACY won victory over ZYRO in a 2 minute match.  Lacy is our top Wall 
of Steel.
     That's it then.  And I'm off.  Cheerio!
