                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     I saw a guy with a bag over his head snooping around, and I knew in a flash (the
sun is shining, and everything's flashing right now) that it was the Unknown
Spymaster and it was time for a spy report.  So here's the news that was available at
printing time:
     Personals!  The give and take of alert minds!  THREE managers sent in personals
this time, and it's great!  Way better than most arenas on the Isle can do.
     The Upright Man got 44 points today, and 1977 AMC Matador lost 36, same fight.
Somebody was up too late the night before the fights.
     Our Champion of the Horn got the most challenges.
     Color Me Suave was most avoided, and Sentinels did most of that avoiding.
     We had ten fights, one challenge, and only two standbys.  This, too, is good
compared to some arenas on the Isle.

     MAULI LAMA (7-6292) (15-15-1,20) of SENTINELS fought R.O.U.S. (107-4) (0-0-0,50)
of Fine Imported Standbys.  MAULI LAMA was beaten by R.O.U.S. in a popular 1 minute
melee.  Oops.  But Rats Of Unusual Size fight dirty.  It's the only way they know to
go.
     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (69-60-0,178) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought THE UPRIGHT
MAN (10-5185) (34-44-0,127) of ALASTARIAN IDOL.  1977 AMC MATADOR was overpowered by
THE UPRIGHT MAN in a popular 2 minute uneven duel.  An upset victory like this always
stirs the crowd, they actually got into fistfights over it!
     OZAWINDIB (7-6212) (33-23-0,158) of SENTINELS fought ARUGULA (3-7180) (26-26-
2,134) of VEGGIES.  OZAWINDIB vanquished ARUGULA in a 2 minute uneven duel.  Nobody
eats veggies these days.  I blame the internet.
     ANZAHANZEK (7-6204) (32-24-0,193) of SENTINELS fought JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554)
(52-49-0,177) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  ANZAHANZEK was defeated by JELLO KNUCKLES in an
action packed 5 minute melee.  I think it's a kind of martial arts style, Jello-Fu or
something.
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (46-42-1,199) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought RIRORNI CAPTAIN (107-
26) (0-0-0,200) of Fine Imported Standbys.  AZAGHAL devastated RIRORNI CAPTAIN in a
crowd pleasing 2 minute mismatched match.  I should hope so!  Those Rirorni are just
about helpless on foot, and we wouldn't let him bring the horse into the arena.  Too
hard to clean up afterward, you know?

     VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-6623) (41-60-1,195) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS fought PINCH
BLISTER (18-9859) (46-67-0,205) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  VIRGINIA, NO SANTA was viciously
subdued by PINCH BLISTER in a 3 minute brawl.  Pinch will have a santa or know the 
reason why.
     POCKET NEWS (19-5364) (27-25-0,194) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS fought ALMOST PRETTY
(42-4496) (83-44-0,207) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  POCKET NEWS was devastated by ALMOST
PRETTY in a 2 minute brutal one-sided fight.  More bad photos?
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (89-142-2,191) of FOUND IN THE SAND fought THE HYPHEN-DASH
(42-4499) (46-44-1,192) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  SHINY PENNY overpowered THE HYPHEN-DASH
in a 1 minute mismatched duel.  It's a new strategy:  Shiny offers a penny for the
Dash's thoughts, and the Dash, not having any, is stumped.
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (43-42-1,203) of SENTINELS fought MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430)
(101-49-4,201) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  OBROJOBO was subdued by MOIST TOWELETTE in an
exciting 1 minute melee.  Subdued, yes, but very clean.

Our only challenge, for the title:
     RUTH (18-10121) (45-30-0,215) of SHEPHERDS challenged HEINRIK (81-1257) (63-50-
1,373) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  Up 158, I think.  Large numbers stun me.  RUTH was
viciously subdued by HEINRIK in a 3 minute Challenge Title fight.  Despite a valiant
effort (it took three minutes for Heinrik to subdue her), Ruth lost.  So this arena
remains Ruth-less at the top.  Our congratulations go to the silent Heinrik.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

The "Almost Pretty" news update was hilarious.  Whoever writes copy for Pocket News
needs a pay raise! -- Nomad

Jello Knuckles -- I never did understand that name.  And as the spy report noted--
back to a winning record.  Gotta like that.  Well, I have to like that.  You don't.
But I do.  Like the record, I mean. -- Obrojobo

Heinrik -- Before the turn I looked at the standings and saw you on the throne and me
as the only GCC below you.  I knew what was going to happen.  It was sort of like
watching an avalanche in slow motion.  You know it is going to be bad.  But you can't
do anything about it.  So you just hope it doesn't hurt.  And maybe you'll learn
something.  And, besides, it is a title shot, you gotta take that when you can get
it, right?  I mean, you might have forgotten your weapon or something.  Or tripped on
the sand and hit your head.  It could have happened.  But it wasn't likely.  "Favored
by 100 points," I think I heard the bookies say.  I don't even know what that means,
but I don't think it was praise for my chances.  OR the chances of you falling and
hitting your head.  Give me another 50 fights and I'll try again. -- Anzahanzek 

These Pirate Kings are wiser than they look. -- Mauli Lama

Shiny Penny -- That is a crap load of FE you have.  And a bunch of holes in your
hide.  You have those also.  You do seem like a bit of an FE giant in this place
right now.  But apparently FE isn't everything. -- Azaghal

Pocket News -- Why do I not look forward to tommorrow's headline?   At least spell
the name right, please. -- Ozawindib

Spy Reporter Mistaken!  Stewards Are Adamant!

     Some of 'em are brazen, trust me on this.

A Loss for Ozawindib!  Is It His Name?  Story on page 3.

The Hyphen-Dash -- You're no Heinrik. -- Ruth

Heinrik -- I'm back for more.  Show me why scum are worthless against you again! --
Ruth

Azaghal -- Foul, I cry!  I'm supposed to beat you.  Is that your first victory over
me? -- Shiny Penny

Pinch Blister -- And here I thought I was past your scumming ways -- Virginia

1977 AMC Matador -- You're a classic.  I'm unwanted. -- Arugula
