    '##/###' Avoid teams by their Team Id     '-'  Team did not fight this turn

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Yes, well, it's a spy report.  Sort of thing you expect to see on the front page
of a newsletetr, hmm?  Oh, not in the old days, maybe, then you might see the account
of somebody's adventure, something they got into that they shouldn't've messed with.
Happens all the time.  But these days, people don't like to talk about it.  Seems
boastful.  So on the front page, we get the spy report.  This is it.
     Ah, news flash:  If exactly six [unspecified living things] die in duels this
week [don't know if it's the week beginning today, ending today, or straddling this
day], the whole city [what city is not specified, but apparently the suburbs go, too]
shall perish.  Fire?  Flood?  Barbarian hordes pouring through a Gate?  It is the
habit of seers not to be specific.  Harder to prove 'em wrong.  Although I've heard
of a few seers who got the axe on nothing but a reasonable suspicion.
     What the heck?  The Stormguards most avoided The Stormguards?  Sounds like a
good trick.  Let me check the raw data here, some of the clerks can't cook....  Huh,
The Stormguards WERE the Most Avoided team, and some of the avoiding WAS done by The
Stormguards, but there was a scattering of other teams involved.  Party Animals, Ski
Taos, and Sparf! to name three.  As to why the warriors of The Stormguards were
avoiding each other, well, maybe we should draw the veil of privacy over that one.
Who knows what goes on in some of these overheated guildhouses, eh?
     Lini Dawnwind got the most challenges, too bad she doesn't get to pick which one
to accept.
     Nobody died.  There were twenty-five fights, with only TWO standbys involved--
way to GO, warriors of Home Guard.  Ten challenges, none of them tv.  Oh, well.

     So, the fights.
     UNZOE THE SHAMAN (31-4940) (16-5-0,67) of THE STORMGUARDS fought HARLEY THE
CADAVER (18-5366) (21-41-3,67) of STREET PIZZA.  UNZOE THE SHAMAN, having
successfully avoided his teammates, was beaten by HARLEY THE CADAVER in an action
packed 3 minute duel.  Is this a sign of trouble in the Spirit Land?  Can a shaman's
license to practice be revoked by anything short of a mob waving pitchforks?
     BLOOD PIE (96-1918) (11-8-5,79) of WHY SELL THIS? fought REVANENT (15-4770) (17-
8-2,61) of BLOODSWORN.  BLOOD PIE was overpowered by REVANENT in a 1 minute gruesome
one-sided bout.  Revanent was justly incensed (myrrh?) by this profaning of the
sacred substance and really ripped the Pie apart.
     MOUNTAIN GOAT (56-3700) (46-65-3,71) of REDHORSE fought HERMY (101-4) (0-0-0,50)
of Anonymous Dancing Partners.  MOUNTAIN GOAT was beaten by HERMY in an action packed
2 minute fight.  Rumor has it that Hermy was acting as an agent for Debby Tonte of
Free Blades, who seems to have conceived an extremely negative attitude with respect,
or disrespect, to all members of this team.  Take it up with your manager, Goat.
     BROKEN TOE (56-3683) (46-69-1,67) of REDHORSE fought HEAD CHEESE (96-1920) (12-
7-3,69) of WHY SELL THIS?  BROKEN TOE was luckily beaten by HEAD CHEESE in a 2 minute
one-sided fight.  This is what happens to gladiators who make rude jokes about their
opponents.  I don't think Head Cheese found the "cheese grater" joke amusing.

     BULL DURHAM (5-4324) (22-10-0,92) of PARTY ANIMALS fought SCRAPPLE (97-1961) (9-
10-3,69) of WHY SELL THIS?  BULL DURHAM was unbelievably bested by SCRAPPLE in a 1
minute uneven duel.  Unbelievable doesn't even begin to describe it!  Here we've got
a bull, and I can tell you, bulls are not pushovers any way you slice them, and he
loses to what is basically corn meal mush with pollutants.  Is this reasonable?
     KONGOL (7-4524) (50-51-2,149) of BLADES OF ICE fought FAT BACK (96-1610) (23-19-
4,97) of KILLING ME SOFTLY.  KONGOL lost to FAT BACK in a popular 1 minute match.
There's a little personal history behind this one, but unfortunately (for you) it
isn't the kind of thing I can write about in a family newsletter.  So you'll just
have to guess.
     REDDI WHIP (97-1636) (26-16-7,177) of KILLING ME SOFTER fought BODDINGTON'S (21-
5035) (21-11-0,140) of REAL BEER.  REDDI WHIP viciously subdued BODDINGTON'S in a
popular 5 minute gory contest.  The amount of foam generated by this was an eye-
opener.  Worst when you got it IN your eyes, of course, and some people, especially
in the first three rows, DID, but they were all provided with, what?  Good gods, this
can't be true!  Well, they were provided with a suitable fluid for washing it out
again, and we'll let it go at that.
     PORK ROLL (97-1634) (23-19-5,158) of KILLING ME SOFTER fought ADAM'S APPLE (52-
3203) (23-9-0,102) of OTTO'S PARTS.  PORK ROLL overpowered ADAM'S APPLE in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute one-sided match.  We all knew that something dire was up when Pork 
turned out with an apple corer.  The gusts of evil laughter were over the top, but
some people really get into their work here.
     HUMMINGBIRD (56-3475) (46-54-0,164) of REDHORSE fought TYMARIS RAVENSWOOD (53-
5637) (29-32-0,146) of PUERCO'S PINATA.  HUMMINGBIRD overpowered TYMARIS RAVENSWOOD
in an exciting 1 minute one-sided bout.  Rumor has it that someone explained to the
Bird, right before the fight, how pinatas are treated on their own ground, and the
old caravan raider decided to give it a try.  Not necessarily a good plan, because a
raven can take a hummingbird in a fair fight.

     AEDON (7-4295) (54-51-1,161) of BLADES OF ICE fought HELM HAMMERHAND (31-5025)
(42-33-0,137) of LORDS OF VALHALLA.  AEDON was savagely defeated by HELM HAMMERHAND
in a crowd pleasing 3 minute brawl.  Helm was demonstrating to Aedon a) why a blade
of ice is not a good thing as the season gets warmer, and b) why he isn't called
powderpuffhand.  Names can be important.  Think of sympathetic magic.
     HALLIE O'DENE (58-6018) (85-103-0,197) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES fought FEALOST (1-
3916) (67-88-2,206) of MOSSRUNNERS.  HALLIE O'DENE savagely defeated FEALOST in an
action packed 1 minute gruesome struggle.  Apparently Hallie found out what Fealost
was "up to," and as a faithful follower of the Obsessed Avenger, dealt with him
approprately.
     MOD COD (55-2638) (91-112-3,195) of RHYME TYME fought RIPPY BRICKBOY (101-1) (0-
0-0,200) of Anonymous Dancing Partners.  MOD COD was overcome by RIPPY BRICKBOY in an
action packed 1 minute fight.  Good to see, bad to smell.  Imagine, if you will, an
over-ripe fish smashed under a load of bricks.  You can't get at it to clean things
up, and the day is hot....
     BUCK (1-2291) (62-122-0,211) of MOSSRUNNERS fought STREET RAT (11-3116) (32-21-
1,196) of GERFEL'S FRIENDS.  BUCK was savagely defeated by STREET RAT in a popular 3
minute bloody brawl.  And speaking of powderpuffs... get a look at Buck!  That was
pathetic, even for him.
     BECKY (17-5782) (41-23-4,211) of BLADES OF STEEL fought YOU'VE GOT SEATTLE (82-
31563) (29-18-1,195) of IT'S THE SAME MOVIE!  BECKY was overcome by YOU'VE GOT
SEATTLE in an exciting 1 minute contest.  Not entirely her fault, she was expecting
Honolulu.

     Ah, the challenge matches.
     CAULIFLOWER EARS (52-3424) (20-15-0,66) of OTTO'S PARTS challenged PINE LEAF
(24-4580) (34-46-0,77) of KRILL CAVALRY.  Up 11.  CAULIFLOWER EARS was narrowly
defeated by PINE LEAF in a 2 minute Challenge melee.  I don't know about this sauce
made with pine nuts and butter, it sounds strange.  But it seems to have done for the
cauliflower.
     HUNZICKER BOWL (23-4182) (28-18-1,88) of SKI TAOS challenged SNIPPER (66-3518)
(27-24-0,67) of WHIPPERSNAPPERS.  Down 21.  HUNZICKER BOWL won victory over SNIPPER
in a popular 1 minute Challenge fight.  Why was this not one-sided?  Was Hunzicker
distracted by Debby Tonte, up in the stands, yelling something about her skis?  Does
Hunzicker KNOW something about her skis?  Inquiring minds are advised to keep out of
this one.
     JARL FORKBEARD (31-5280) (26-10-1,46) of THE STORMGUARDS challenged BLACK EYES
(46-2820) (18-15-0,59) of THE FURIOUS FIVE.  Up 13.  JARL FORKBEARD lost to BLACK
EYES in an action packed 1 minute Challenge fight.  Now Jarl has, what a surprise,
black eyes.  But these things happen, even in the best-regulated couples.  Or so they
tell me.  I always avoid the best-regulated couples.
     VIKING RAIDER (54-2885) (13-2-1,92) of SPARF! challenged BRICK WALL (1-7478)
(40-41-0,92) of HOMICIDAL MANIACS.  Straight across.  VIKING RAIDER overpowered BRICK
WALL in a 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.  They say that Vikings are uncivilized,
which seems strange to me, what does it take to be civilized?  What does it take NOT
to be civilized?  But whatever the case, they apparently have no trouble dealing with
walls of brick.  Very good time, too!
     ACE METRIC (47-3554) (19-9-0,130) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged LINI DAWNWIND (11-
5865) (30-32-1,136) of KRILL CAVALRY.  Up 6.  ACE METRIC was beaten by LINI DAWNWIND
in a crowd pleasing 1 minute Challenge brawl.  Well, perhaps Lini DID get to pick her
challenger, because the outcome must be accounted one she is likely to have enjoyed.

     BLACK JACK SHELACK (47-4850) (25-20-1,142) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged GAR & BRILL
(38-4252) (56-74-0,168) of JUST BECAUSE.  Up 26.  BLACK JACK SHELACK narrowly
defeated GAR & BRILL in a 2 minute Challenge struggle.  Too bad it was a narrow
defeat, we had hoped to see Gar thoroughly shellacked.  Not a minute too soon,
either.  But so it goes.
     SLIPPERY NIPPLE (59-2323) (25-9-1,160) of HANGOVERS challenged CROOKED HOOF (56-
3493) (51-44-0,171) of REDHORSE.  Up 11.  SLIPPERY NIPPLE was demolished by CROOKED
HOOF in a 1 minute Challenge competition.  For those of you too far from the action
to see, Hoof tripped over a sticky wicket and fell onto his opponent.  It was messy
for a while there, but our janitors are skilled and were able to sort things out and
prepare the sand for the next match in little over half an hour.
     OSCAR (50-3153) (37-12-0,158) of OPEN SESAME challenged DRANDUS DE'VIR (71-4909)
(28-20-0,185) of REALMS TUFTS.  Up 27 or something about like that.  OSCAR was
vanquished by DRANDUS DE'VIR in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  It will be a
week or so before Oscar shows his head in public, as he was scalped.
     POPE PAUL II (79-1317) (26-21-0,198) of CHAPEL ROCK challenged REDEMPTION (4-
4868) (55-34-2,243) of BLADES OF MIST.  Up 45.  POPE PAUL II demolished REDEMPTION in
a popular 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  An odd juxtaposition.  I would have
expected the pope to be quite in favor of redemption.
     DESPERADO (77-2459) (37-19-2,185) of POSSE challenged KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (80-
110-4,214) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.  Up 29.  DESPERADO bested KOOKABURRA in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute gruesome Challenge fight.  Nothing but crumbs remains.

     And for the title:  CAT IN THE HAT (24-3103) (44-16-1,252) of THE SEUSS HEUSS
fought MOOSE (56-3459) (39-49-0,217) of REDHORSE.  CAT IN THE HAT overpowered MOOSE
in a crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided Title match.  A good win, Cat, lucky for the
rest of us.  Imagine having a taciturn moose for top gladiator!  Hardly conceivable.

Cat in the Hat -- Is this the "hat trick"?  I can't say that I care for it.  Worse
than being hoodwinked. -- Hallie O'Dene

Catfish Hunter -- Euwh!  Do you realize what catfish EAT?  Yuck-O!  Not something I
want any part of. -- Lini Dawnwind

Blood Pie -- If that's what it took to get out of eating (shudder) blood pie, well, I
was GLAD.  Baddly battered, but glad. -- Snipper

Ace Bailey -- Wrong tool for the job.  A sledge hammer, that's what you want. --
Hallie O'Dene for the Brick Wall

Broken Toe -- Yes, and I hope it FALLS OFF. -- Pine Leaf

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
