                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     I'd almost like to chuck the whole mess and go on vacation, maybe do like the
ducks and Debby Tonte and fly south for the winter.  But SHE has a long arm, and my
job is to put together something that might, at a casual glance, look like a spy
report.
     Zontani Sharp Eyes took the notes, and sometimes I wonder how meaningful the
"Sharp Eyes" business is, you know?
     Eleven fights, three standbys.
     One challenge:  Cadal was the "most challenged" today.
     No avoids that I could see.  Right, I went back and checked with the clerks in
the Commission office:  no avoids.

     SNOTMAN (97-2611) (18-10-5,86) of COLLUSION fought PRISONER 0327 (82-40997) (14-
12-2,37) of DUNGEON CELL 66.  SNOTMAN overpowered PRISONER 0327 in a crowd pleasing 1
minute bloody one-sided match.  Ah, but Snotty, imagine what it would have been like
if they'd let the Prisoner out of the Dungeon Cell before the fight!  That might've
been a different set of striped longjohns.
     OWAIN HARLSON (35-3130) (29-50-1,60) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought HERMY (101-4)
(0-0-0,50) of Assorted Deadbeats.  OWAIN HARLSON was overpowered by HERMY in a 2
minute one-sided melee.  Er, um, I did sort of let Hermy think that the "deadbeats"
designation was Owain's idea.  It seems to have annoyed her.
     HUW AP HUW (35-3030) (21-65-0,48) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought BILGE RAT (51-5334)
(18-4-1,59) of SEA DOGS.  HUW AP HUW was vanquished by BILGE RAT in a popular 1
minute one-sided duel.  I hear that Huw has a tee-shirt in his locker that says "Born
to Lose."  Simple truth.
     MATH OP OWAIN (35-1418) (48-91-1,139) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought KATRINA (101-9)
(0-0-0,170) of Assorted Deadbeats.  MATH OP OWAIN vanquished KATRINA in a popular 1
minute uneven duel.  Math blamed the "deadbeats" comment on Owain, too, and while
Katrina was distracted... whammo!
     GWYN AP NUDD (41-1210) (30-6-0,172) of CAER SIDHE fought JAMES MADISON (99-1268)
(24-15-3,149) of DEAD PRESIDENTS, YO.  GWYN AP NUDD was overpowered by JAMES MADISON
in a 1 minute uneven melee.  How embarrassing.

     BLOODY BRAINLESS (96-2206) (24-25-4,153) of BLOODY RANDOMNESS fought GAR & BRILL
(38-4252) (67-104-0,119) of JUST BECAUSE.  BLOODY BRAINLESS was overpowered by GAR &
BRILL in a 1 minute mismatched brawl.  Well, you'd have to be brainless to lose to
Gar.
     SILHOUETTE (26-2006) (31-11-1,204) of MENAGERIE fought SCRAPPLE (97-1961) (36-
24-3,205) of WHY SELL THIS?  SILHOUETTE was devastated by SCRAPPLE in a 3 minute
bloody one-sided duel.  And we still don't know why anyone sells this.
     BLOOD PIE (96-1918) (33-27-5,229) of WHY SELL THIS? fought SOUL SCOURGE (25-
1223) (29-12-2,183) of THE ILLUMINATI.  BLOOD PIE was devastated by SOUL SCOURGE in
an exciting 1 minute one-sided fight.  Does Blood Pie even HAVE a soul?  I saw a
blood pie once, and I personally doubt it.
     HEAD CHEESE (96-1920) (41-19-3,225) of WHY SELL THIS? fought SHARON SHEW (101-
25) (0-0-0,181) of Assorted Deadbeats.  HEAD CHEESE defeated SHARON SHEW in a crowd
pleasing 4 minute duel.  She stepped on the Cheese, slipped and fell.  It happens.

Our only challenge:
     SANDMAN (97-2610) (20-8-4,100) of COLLUSION challenged CADAL (35-1370) (49-100-
4,125) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  Up 25.  SANDMAN was devastated by CADAL in a 1 minute
mismatched Challenge fight.  Sometimes, experience shrieks and bites.

For the title:
     TENACIOUS (7-5337) (76-37-1,212) of BATHTUB ARMADA fought TAVIS CADFALSON (35-
1419) (41-98-3,213) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  TENACIOUS subdued TAVIS CADFALSON in an
exciting 2 minute Title melee.  Huh.  Zontani didn't even call it a "one-sided"
match.  That must be a hint, but don't ask me what.
