                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     There's good news, and there's bad news.  The good news is, not one single
standby fought here today.  The bad news is, we only had nine fights.  Gods, the
shame!  Or at least the deep irritation as other spy reporters crow over their
greater action.  Oh, well, we may be few, but I like to think we're choice, right?
     Menagerie avoided Sol Invictus.  Okay.  Be that way.
     James Madison got the most challenges.
     Nine fights, no standbys.  Three challenges, none of them tv.

     SANDMAN (97-2610) (15-6-4,72) of COLLUSION fought HUW AP HUW (35-3030) (20-58-
0,58) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  SANDMAN won victory over HUW AP HUW in a popular 3 minute
fight.  Just call 'em trainers, right?
     SNOTMAN (97-2611) (13-8-5,42) of COLLUSION fought JOHN WAYNE HAMMER (42-4213)
(23-36-2,73) of KLK RANGE HAMMERZ.  SNOTMAN lost to JOHN WAYNE HAMMER in an action
packed 1 minute fight.  Yep, that's JW's style.  Winning.  Especially against
colluders.
     OWAIN HARLSON (35-3130) (27-44-1,103) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought BLOODY
BRAINLESS (96-2206) (20-21-4,94) of BLOODY RANDOMNESS.  OWAIN HARLSON was overpowered
by BLOODY BRAINLESS in a 1 minute uneven melee.  His teammates tell me they thought
"bloody brainless" would be a good description of Owain, too.  Teammates know these
things.
     TAVIS CADFALSON (35-1419) (37-94-3,194) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought BLOOD PIE
(96-1918) (27-25-5,179) of WHY SELL THIS?  TAVIS CADFALSON was bested by BLOOD PIE in
a crowd pleasing 2 minute bloody match.  Picky eaters don't make it here.
     HEAD CHEESE (96-1920) (35-17-3,203) of WHY SELL THIS? fought MATH OP OWAIN (35-
1418) (46-85-1,194) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  HEAD CHEESE demolished MATH OP OWAIN in a 5
minute mismatched competition.  As noted above, forget the picky eating habits.

The challenges:
     GWYN AP NUDD (41-1210) (23-5-0,87) of CAER SIDHE challenged JAMES MADISON (99-
1268) (19-12-3,100) of DEAD PRESIDENTS, YO.  Up 13.  GWYN AP NUDD demolished JAMES
MADISON in a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  I hate to see that happen to a dead
guy.  It's so hard to pull yourself back together after a demolishment.
     SOUL SCOURGE (25-1223) (24-9-2,128) of THE ILLUMINATI challenged GAR & BRILL
(38-4252) (67-96-0,169) of JUST BECAUSE.  Up 41.  SOUL SCOURGE viciously subdued GAR
& BRILL in an exciting 1 minute Challenge duel.  Ah, good!  See if you can scour that
filthy brill clean.  It really needs it.
     SILHOUETTE (26-2006) (25-9-0,132) of MENAGERIE challenged CADAL (35-1370) (47-
94-4,146) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  Up 14.  SILHOUETTE bested CADAL in a 2 minute
Challenge fight.  And so it goes.

For the title:
     SCRAPPLE (97-1961) (31-21-3,252) of WHY SELL THIS? fought TENACIOUS (7-5337)
(71-35-1,217) of BATHTUB ARMADA.  SCRAPPLE slimly lost to TENACIOUS in a popular 9
minute gory Title contest.  Congratulations to that familiar face, Tenacious.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Owain Harlson -- Cope. -- Soul Scourge

     Unfeeling wretch, aren't you?  But the advice is good.  Better than whining.

Silhouette -- Difficult to see against the sun, which was too bright considering the
party most of us here in Home Guard went to last night, but shapely none the less.
There are worse fates. -- Owain Harlson
P.S.  And skills are always good.  Thanks.

Horagalles -- Hmm, I know I didn't do anything different, and it seems unlikely that
you did anything different, and yet I won.  Could it be that I won because I actually
bestirred myself to appear briefly in an episodelet in Murska today?  I sincerely
hope not, because that would mean I'd have to submit to more episodes and adventures
if I wanted to win, and while winning is very pleasant, adventures are very not
pleasant. -- Cadal, pondering darkly

Gwyn ap Nudd -- Wow, that makes me glad I've managed to escape the current round of
adventuring.  I mean, there have been dark hints about the Wild Hunt, and by losing
to you, I place myself in a bad position with regard to that.  Horrid things could
happen to me because of this loss!  So I'm staying out of it all. -- huw ap Huw,
hoping he hasn't drawn unwanted attention by his comments, but what the heck, he was
under orders to say SOMETHING today

Scrapple -- That fight was probably too short.  I've been told, don't know from
personal experience, that the grittiness of corn meal is mitigated by long soaking.
Okay, they aren't talking about soaking it in MY blood, and I'd rather not, but
still, maybe in a long fight you'd be a little less abrassive? -- Tavis Cadfalson

Wretchedmisery -- My dear child, you're simply in the wrong line of work.  I'm sure
that we could find something that would fill you with joy. -- Math op Owain
P.S.  Perhaps you could be a foot holder?  If you meet the qualification, of course.

     That's a very personal question you didn't quite ask, bub.
