                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     This'll be our last meeting before the tourney, and a good thing, what with so
many people on hold until then.  Sixteen fights, five against standbys.  Could be
worse, but it isn't good.  Only two challenges.  Bah.
     Sea Dogs was avoided or were avoided by All the Mun's Men.  Works for me.  The
Mun was the only manager doing any managing this time, both challenges were from his
boys, too.  So it goes, you get out what you put in, all that kind of stuff.  I've
got a book full of quotes like that.

The fights:
     KNOTHANDLER (21-6555) (17-10-2,32) of SEA DOGS fought MEAN SPIRIT (101-5) (0-0-
0,70) of Tired Old Standbys.  KNOTHANDLER was devastated by MEAN SPIRIT in a 1 minute
one-sided brawl.  Puny, definitely puny.
     HUW AP HUW (35-3030) (22-67-0,56) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought PRISONER BG11 (99-
1620) (7-8-4,33) of DUNGEON CELL 508C.  HUW AP HUW viciously subdued PRISONER BG11 in
an exciting 4 minute bloody uneven duel.  What's this?  Huw isn't supposed to go
winning fights, even when they're uneven.  How that man graduated is a mystery to me.
     PATCH (36-7297) (19-14-0,79) of SEA DOGS fought ABBOTT (14-4131) (19-7-2,51) of
OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  PATCH defeated ABBOTT in a popular 1 minute duel.  Ah, where's a
standby when you need one, eh, Abbott?

     PRISONER 0327 (82-40997) (15-14-2,46) of DUNGEON CELL 66 fought MEAN SPIRIT
(101-5) (0-0-0,70) of Tired Old Standbys.  PRISONER 0327 was viciously subdued by
MEAN SPIRIT in a crowd pleasing 3 minute bout.  The second win by the Mean Spirit,
who seems to be feeling especially mean today.
     BILGE RAT (51-5334) (21-4-1,72) of SEA DOGS fought HERMY (101-4) (0-0-0,50) of
Tired Old Standbys.  BILGE RAT viciously subdued HERMY in an exciting 2 minute brutal
contest.  Vicious, huh?  I won't ask what's behind that.
     PRISONER 0103 (82-33733) (29-59-0,47) of DUNGEON CELL 21 fought LAKE SAILOR
(101-2) (0-0-0,30) of Tired Old Standbsy.  PRISONER 0103 was killed by LAKE SAILOR in
a crowd pleasing 1 minute match.  Ouch, talk about embarrassing!
     SHEWISH WHALER (18-9272) (27-15-1,93) of SEA DOGS fought OWAIN HARLSON (35-3130)
(31-51-1,74) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  SHEWISH WHALER overpowered OWAIN HARLSON in a
popular 1 minute one-sided melee.  Does this mean Owain is a whale?
     BLOODY BRAINLESS (96-2206) (26-26-4,140) of BLOODY RANDOMNESS fought GAR & BRILL
(38-4252) (68-106-0,116) of JUST BECAUSE.  BLOODY BRAINLESS was vanquished by GAR &
BRILL in a popular 1 minute one-sided duel.  Tedious.  Why?  Oh, just because.

     BALLAST (1-7727) (30-42-0,173) of SEA DOGS fought CADAL (35-1370) (51-101-4,142)
of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  BALLAST outwaited CADAL in a popular 8 minute duel.  Eight
minutes?  That's nothing, real scum can go for hours and even days.
     U.S.S. ARIZONA (34-2643) (26-19-1,153) of D-DAY SQUAD fought MISS TEAK (1-8015)
(30-26-1,126) of SEA DOGS.  U.S.S. ARIZONA overpowered MISS TEAK in an action packed
1 minute uneven melee.  Sank her.  Sunk her?  Whatever.  Down she went.
     MATH OP OWAIN (35-1418) (50-92-1,158) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought PRISONER 0118
(82-33748) (22-54-0,114) of DUNGEON CELL 24.  MATH OP OWAIN was luckily beaten by
PRISONER 0118 in a 2 minute bloody brawl.  I dunno, I don't think I believe in luck.
Not this kind, anyway.
     GOLDENBEARD (21-6202) (29-7-1,204) of SEA DOGS fought KISSYFUR (67-2187) (28-16-
1,156) of ALL-STAR NANA'S.  GOLDENBEARD devastated KISSYFUR in a popular 1 minute
bloody uneven brawl.  Beard to beard, so to speak.
     TAVIS CADFALSON (35-1419) (41-101-3,199) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought HUNGRY
HAROLD (101-29) (0-0-0,200) of Tired Old Standbys.  TAVIS CADFALSON defeated HUNGRY
HAROLD in an exciting 1 minute fight.  But he bought him a sandwich afterward.
Harold's easy if you know how to handle him.

The challenges:
     KARATIA (73-3624) (22-6-1,108) of KIWI CONNECTION challenged MAKESHIFT ANCHOR
(1-7724) (32-42-0,112) of SEA DOGS.  Up 4.  KARATIA was narrowly defeated by
MAKESHIFT ANCHOR in a 8 minute Challenge melee.  There's probably some nautical
comment that should be made here, but I can't think of it.  Not a lot of specifically
nautical stuff in the Book of Words.
     BATMUN (37-2634) (37-15-0,204) of ALL THE MUN'S MEN challenged JAMES MADISON
(99-1268) (27-15-3,217) of DEAD PRESIDENTS, YO.  Up 13.  BATMUN was devastated by
JAMES MADISON in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  People keep underestimating
dead guys.  Works for us.

For the title:
     HEAD CHEESE (96-1920) (44-19-3,253) of WHY SELL THIS? fought HORTATOR (1-7791)
(31-33-3,200) of SEA DOGS.  HEAD CHEESE vanquished HORTATOR in a 2 minute mismatched
Title brawl.  It's still the Cheese on top.  Congratulations.
