                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay.

Hullo there, Darkholmers!

Again today, there were five fights.  Since two involved stand-ins, that's eight 
actual gladiators, also the same as last turn.  But were they the same eight who took 
part last time?  You know, at the moment I'm too lazy to check and see.  Let's look at 
the fights, shall we?  Even if you don't want to, because I'm driving this spy report.

ASSUR (18-7821) (95-141-2,224) of ARROGANCE fought PHILTHRY (42-2079) (78-73-0,185) of 
HIGHLANDERS.  ASSUR slimly lost to PHILTHRY in a crowd pleasing 2 minute Title fight.  
Okay!  We have a new Keeper of the Runeblade.  Since Philthry always writes a personal 
ad, I can hope he'll write a column next time.  Anyway, Assur is still the top Basher 
and Philthry is top Parry-Strike.

MIKEL (6-6190) (78-87-3,197) of THE LADY'S LIST fought PELIS THE TRUE (42-3469) (66-
109-1,177) of HIGHLANDERS.  MIKEL vanquished PELIS THE TRUE in an exciting 1 minute 
uneven battle.  Mikel is top Slasher, and Pelis the True is overall popularity leader.  
Mikel is this turn's favorite, though.

ZEUS (62-4010) (67-57-0,202) of LEGION OF LEGEND fought MAN-MOUNTAIN (7-3853) (35-33-
1,158) of WASTELAND II.  ZEUS narrowly defeated MAN-MOUNTAIN in a crowd pleasing 1 
minute bloody duel.  Zeus is the top Wall of Steel.  Oddly, Man-Mountain isn't a 
stylemaster at all.

FATALITY (7-5820) (56-66-0,116) of BRUTAL LEGION fought OLD SAILMAKER (104-7) (0-0-
0,110) of  .  FATALITY was overpowered by OLD SAILMAKER in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  
The Old Sailmaker is pretty formidable, eh? Fatality is our top Striker.

ASSASSIN (96-1802) (18-16-4,71) of BLOODY LEGION fought DRUNKEN FISHERMAN (104-1) (20-
20-0,50) of  .  ASSASSIN bested DRUNKEN FISHERMAN in a 2 minute duel.  And Assassin is 
the top Aimed Blow.

There were no challenges and no avoids.  So that's all there is to say. Until next 
time... wait for it... CHEERIO!

Assur -- The crowd was amazed at our speed?  And we're both Bashers?  How old ARE 
those spectators? -- Pelis the True

Man-Mountain -- They really shouldn't call you a golem.  Clearly you are a natural 
male who suffered some kind of horrible accident.  After all, your name says it.  Man.
