                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Well, here we are.  Some of us, anyway.  Twelve fights?  If we don't watch out,
they'll close us down!  Of course, it could be worse, there was only one satndby.
Two actual challenges, even.  Military Mayhem avoided Collusion, which sounds like a
plan to me.  Snotman got the most challenges, which may simply mean the slimey dude
was double-challenged by one person.  Who knows?

     JAMES MADISON (99-1268) (15-11-3,51) of DEAD PRESIDENTS, YO fought SUI GENERIS
(38-4444) (17-8-0,83) of ALL FINESSE.  JAMES MADISON demolished SUI GENERIS in a 1
minute mismatched match.  It takes an extra something to get elected when you're
dead.
     I OF THE KNEE DOLL (71-3532) (13-11-1,51) of HAZAARDS OF CLONING fought ROISIN
DUBH (47-6038) (20-13-1,74) of GAELIC STORM.  I OF THE KNEE DOLL was overcome by
ROISIN DUBH in a popular 3 minute bout.  Ho!  If you want to stump an opponent,
Roisin, invite them to play gwyddbwyll.  Or even just to pronounce it.
     BLOODY BRAINLESS (96-2206) (17-19-4,92) of BLOODY RANDOMNESS fought HUW AP HUW
(35-3030) (20-53-0,42) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  BLOODY BRAINLESS overpowered HUW AP HUW
in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  That made a matched pair out on the sands, you know.
Both of 'em brainless and bloody.
     JOHN WAYNE HAMMER (42-4213) (21-33-2,100) of KLK RANGE HAMMERZ fought MEAN
SPIRIT (101-5) (0-0-0,70) of Guys Who Always Show Up.  JOHN WAYNE HAMMER was
overpowered by MEAN SPIRIT in a 1 minute uneven duel.  And Mean laughed.  A tough
cookie.

     OWAIN HARLSON (35-3130) (27-39-1,127) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought DON KING (47-
5374) (24-21-2,142) of ROYAL FLUSH.  OWAIN HARLSON was vanquished by DON KING in a 1
minute uneven duel.  That Owain!  He just doesn't pay attention.  And he drinks the
night before the fights.
     CADAL (35-1370) (45-91-4,131) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought URG GUTSPILLER (59-
2561) (26-16-1,117) of VILE REAVERS.  CADAL viciously subdued URG GUTSPILLER in an
action packed 2 minute gruesome fight.  I could think of lots of ways to subdue an
Urg Gutspiller, most of them involving large, unwisely chosen meals followed by a
kick to the belly.
     WRETCHEDMISERY (33-7255) (35-25-0,164) of CHAOTICDISORDER fought TAVIS CADFALSON
(35-1419) (35-91-2,165) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  WRETCHEDMISERY was devastated by TAVIS
CADFALSON in a 1 minute mismatched match.  Always good to see a gladiator getting
what he or she is searching for.
     BLOOD PIE (96-1918) (24-23-5,161) of WHY SELL THIS? fought GAR & BRILL (38-4252)
(64-94-0,154) of JUST BECAUSE.  BLOOD PIE was devastated by GAR & BRILL in a popular
1 minute uneven brawl.  A question arises:  Could B. Pie devastate U. Gutspiller?  It
seems one of those matches with mythic proportions.
     HEAD CHEESE (96-1920) (31-16-3,203) of WHY SELL THIS? fought MATH OP OWAIN (35-
1418) (43-83-1,155) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  HEAD CHEESE defeated MATH OP OWAIN in an
exciting 6 minute fight.  And here I thought Math was some kind of Big Cheese
himself!

     COMMANDER SPUD (31-5149) (14-10-1,50) of MILITARY MAYHEM challenged SANDMAN (97-
2610) (13-3-3,72) of COLLUSION.  Up 22.  COMMANDER SPUD was murdered by SANDMAN in a
1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  Ah, really bad luck, Spud.  But maybe you can
come back and avenge your own death next time?
     AARON (56-3636) (19-8-3,33) of AVERAGE GUYS challenged SNOTMAN (97-2611) (12-4-
5,49) of COLLUSION.  Up 16.  AARON was viciously subdued by SNOTMAN in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute Challenge fight.  And to think that Aaron (probably) most-
challenged S.man for this privilege!  Sometimes it's hard, being a gladiator.

     For the title:  TENACIOUS (7-5337) (67-34-1,220) of BATHTUB ARMADA fought
SCRAPPLE (97-1961) (28-19-3,206) of WHY SELL THIS?  TENACIOUS narrowly defeated
SCRAPPLE in a crowd pleasing 8 minute bloody Title duel.  And Tenacious clins,
tenaciously, to the title.  Congratulations to both.
