                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Again!  Again only nine fights.  No standbys, which is a faint blessing, but
only nine fights!  Where IS everybody?  You've all had time to recover from the
tourney now.
     Of those nine fights, five were challenge matches, the most challenges going to
Cadal.  Heh, if you want to talk about "most challenged," Cadal's whole team got more
challenges than any other.  Probably a clue in there.
     Bloody Randomness was most avoided, by Menagerie.  On the whole, this shows
excellent sense.  Amazing.

     JAMES MADISON (99-1268) (19-13-3,88) of DEAD PRESIDENTS, YO fought JOHN WAYNE
HAMMER (42-4213) (24-36-2,75) of KLK RANGE HAMMERZ.  JAMES MADISON vanquished JOHN
WAYNE HAMMER in a 1 minute one-sided duel.  Presidents rate higher than range
hammers, it seems.  Are range hammers rougher and more "natural" than feedlot
hammers?
     SCRAPPLE (97-1961) (31-22-3,207) of WHY SELL THIS? fought MATH OP OWAIN (35-
1418) (46-86-1,194) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  SCRAPPLE overpowered MATH OP OWAIN in an
action packed 1 minute uneven melee.  Yeah, I heard him complaining about digestive
problems lately.
     BLOOD PIE (96-1918) (28-25-5,195) of WHY SELL THIS? fought TAVIS CADFALSON (35-
1419) (37-95-3,185) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  BLOOD PIE was bested by TAVIS CADFALSON in
a crowd pleasing 2 minute bloody match.  The maintenance staff is upset about
splatters on the walls of the arena, but ehy always find something to complain about.

The challenges:
     SANDMAN (97-2610) (16-6-4,76) of COLLUSION challenged OWAIN HARLSON (35-3130)
(27-45-1,88) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  Up 12.  SANDMAN overpowered OWAIN HARLSON in a 1
minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Collusion and conspiracy, I have no doubt.  Ain't
it great?
     SNOTMAN (97-2611) (13-9-5,46) of COLLUSION challenged HUW AP HUW (35-3030) (20-
59-0,61) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  Up 15.  SNOTMAN vanquished HUW AP HUW in a 1 minute
mismatched Challenge brawl.  More collusion.  You hardly need it for this guy.
     GWYN AP NUDD (41-1210) (24-5-0,100) of CAER SIDHE challenged CADAL (35-1370)
(47-95-4,138) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  Up 38.  GWYN AP NUDD was overcome by CADAL in a
popular 3 minute Challenge match.  Amazing!
     SILHOUETTE (26-2006) (26-9-0,144) of MENAGERIE challenged GAR & BRILL (38-4252)
(67-97-0,147) of JUST BECAUSE.  Up 3.  SILHOUETTE won victory over GAR & BRILL in a 2
minute Challenge battle.  Good.  No reason, just because.
     SOUL SCOURGE (25-1223) (25-9-2,157) of THE ILLUMINATI challenged BLOODY
BRAINLESS (96-2206) (21-21-4,110) of BLOODY RANDOMNESS.  Down 47.  SOUL SCOURGE
devastated BLOODY BRAINLESS in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  I guess you
don't need a brain to have a soul?  Odd, I'd've said it was the other way around, at
least for some people.

For the title:
     TENACIOUS (7-5337) (72-35-1,230) of BATHTUB ARMADA fought HEAD CHEESE (96-1920)
(36-17-3,214) of WHY SELL THIS?  TENACIOUS slimly won victory over HEAD CHEESE in a
dull 31 minute gory Title brawl.  Half an hour, and it was a "slim" victory?  What
would a fat victory take, a couple of weeks?  But congratulations to Tenacious
anyway.

     So is your shape.  Just an observation.  I may be dead, but not, you know,
     totally dead. -- Olaf

Silhouette -- This means I had the position facing the sun, right?  No wonder I
couldn't see you. -- Cadal

Something already grated, maybe, or processed. -- Math op Owain
