                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     In some ways, today is a great step forward:  TWELVE fights, and only two
involving standbys.  BUT--there's always a "but"--no challenges and no avoids, what
were you thinking?

     SNOTMAN (97-2611) (16-9-5,74) of COLLUSION fought BLACK DOG (26-1920) (17-4-
1,56) of ADSGH.  SNOTMAN handily defeated BLACK DOG in a 1 minute one-sided contest.
This team, Adsgh, is new here, or at least new in these times, and we welcome them.
Write personals, strike up relationships with other managers and gladiators.  It's
part of the experience and enhances it for all.  If you speak up, someone will
answer.
     HUW AP HUW (35-3030) (20-63-0,43) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought IRIS (26-4228) (17-
7-1,59) of ADSGH.  HUW AP HUW defeated IRIS in an exciting 3 minute bloody match.
Specifically, these Children will answer, it's in their contract.  As to other
managers and teams, well, they'll do what seems best.  Who can tell what forces may
be acting on them?
     SANDMAN (97-2610) (18-7-4,85) of COLLUSION fought YYZ (26-1899) (18-6-1,61) of
ADSGH.  SANDMAN overpowered YYZ in a 1 minute one-sided melee.  Ah, any relation to
Xyz?  I knew her down in Mordant, years ago that was.  A lot of woman.
     BILGE RAT (51-5334) (16-3-1,52) of SEA DOGS fought OWAIN HARLSON (35-3130) (28-
48-1,43) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  BILGE RAT vanquished OWAIN HARLSON in a 1 minute gory
one-sided duel.  And are we surprised?  Not much.
     BLOODY BRAINLESS (96-2206) (23-23-4,143) of BLOODY RANDOMNESS fought KATRINA
(101-9) (0-0-0,170) of Willing Fans.  BLOODY BRAINLESS was vanquished by KATRINA in a
1 minute one-sided duel.  Seems to me that Bloody Brainless must've been, well,
brainless to lose this fight.
     MATH OP OWAIN (35-1418) (46-90-1,145) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought GAR & BRILL
(38-4252) (67-101-0,114) of JUST BECAUSE.  MATH OP OWAIN handily defeated GAR & BRILL
in a 1 minute uneven melee.  Do my ears deceive me, or did I hear Math laughing after
that one?

     JAMES MADISON (99-1268) (21-15-3,119) of DEAD PRESIDENTS, YO fought NINJA FERD
(101-30) (0-0-0,130) of Willing Fans.  JAMES MADISON savagely defeated NINJA FERD in
a crowd pleasing 5 minute gory brawl.  And quite right, too!  We don't need Ferd
ninjing around here in black pajamas.
     GWYN AP NUDD (41-1210) (27-6-0,161) of CAER SIDHE fought CADAL (35-1370) (49-97-
4,121) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  GWYN AP NUDD viciously subdued CADAL in a popular 5
minute bloody duel.  Ooooh, bad omen, Cadal!  Aren't you one who's about to go out
with minions of the Wild Hunt on some kind of desperate mission?
     SCRAPPLE (97-1961) (34-23-3,207) of WHY SELL THIS? fought SILHOUETTE (26-2006)
(30-9-0,175) of MENAGERIE.  SCRAPPLE defeated SILHOUETTE in an exciting 4 minute
bloody fight.  Yes, well, it's the kind of thing that happens, even to a tough
gladiatress like Silhouette.
     BLOOD PIE (96-1918) (30-27-5,209) of WHY SELL THIS? fought THE SINGING BANDIT
(11-6349) (34-41-0,172) of GERFEL'S FRIENDS.  BLOOD PIE overpowered THE SINGING
BANDIT in a crowd pleasing 2 minute mismatched duel.  Haven't seen any of the Friends
around lately, glad to have you back and hope you stay a while, Singing Bandit.
     TAVIS CADFALSON (35-1419) (39-97-3,219) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought SOUL SCOURGE
(25-1223) (28-10-2,189) of THE ILLUMINATI.  TAVIS CADFALSON demolished SOUL SCOURGE
in a 1 minute one-sided melee.  Hmm, Tavis is getting pushy!  Has someone changed his
training diet, maybe included a little raw meat?

     TENACIOUS (7-5337) (74-36-1,214) of BATHTUB ARMADA fought HEAD CHEESE (96-1920)
(39-18-3,225) of WHY SELL THIS?  TENACIOUS viciously subdued HEAD CHEESE in a
unpopular 205 minute Title fight.  Damned right it was unpopular!  Three and a half
hours in a pouring rain, surely you could have come to some settlement sooner?  Ah,
well, congratulations anyway.
