                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     I tell you true, guys, when the scribes handed me today's program, I wanted to
weep.  Fortunately for the dignity of my position, dead men don't weep easily, if at
all.  But I wanted to.
     TEN fights, and two of them involed standbys.  No challenges.  No most-avoids,
though there may have been some, a tie--the Commission's clerks don't acknowledge
ties.  But on the whole, I think probably no avoids, either.

     SURLY DECKHAND (21-6568) (40-48-1,81) of SEA DOGS fought DEAD LEE (8-3142) (12-
8-0,57) of YOU PAY I SLAY.  SURLY DECKHAND was savagely defeated by DEAD LEE in an
action packed 2 minute match.  This fight resulted in the biggest movement in the
ranks, twenty up for winner Dead Lee, sixteen down for loser Surly Deckhand.
     MIRAGE (84-10230) (25-17-1,54) of DRAGON'S GUARD V fought PRISONER 0484 (82-
49671) (23-51-1,42) of DUNGEON CELL 97.  MIRAGE lost to PRISONER 0484 in a popular 1
minute duel.  Rumor has it that Prisoner has gone blind in the dungeon's darkness and
so is not susceptible to mirages.
     DOMINION (98-2058) (11-14-3,68) of ZOMBIE SQUAD 3 fought MEAN SPIRIT (101-5) (0-
0-0,70) of Faceless Standbys.  DOMINION was vanquished by MEAN SPIRIT in an action
packed 1 minute gory uneven duel.  Disappointing.
     OWAIN HARLSON (35-3130) (51-87-1,113) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought SLICK STEPHAN
(101-11) (0-0-0,150) of Faceless Standbys.  OWAIN HARLSON was overcome by SLICK
STEPHAN in an action packed 1 minute fight.  Not at all surprising.  Owain is an
expert at losing.
     PRISONER R02 (82-51078) (34-40-1,124) of DUNGEON CELL 4 fought HUW AP HUW (35-
3030) (37-108-1,106) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  PRISONER R02 overpowered HUW AP HUW in a
crowd pleasing 3 minute one-sided struggle.  So, does this mean the Prisoner gets
out?

     TAVIS CADFALSON (35-1419) (60-138-3,189) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought BUDDERCUP
(60-5967) (55-60-0,177) of BUMS 'R' US.  TAVIS CADFALSON savagely defeated BUDDERCUP
in a crowd pleasing 2 minute competition.  Ah... a marked antipathy to bums?
     GAR & BRILL (38-4252) (82-148-1,197) of JUST BECAUSE fought NO CHASER (33-6490)
(41-43-0,166) of JOYS OF BOOZE.  GAR & BRILL devastated NO CHASER in a popular 1
minute one-sided contest.  Yep, you just never know what's going to move Gar to
viciousness and brutality.  Apparently lack of a chaser was not a sufficient
motivator.  Now, *I* might have been vicious, brutal, and savage in such a case, but
it wasn't mine to fight.
     CHATTY CABALIST (42-4488) (40-18-3,218) of DUNGEON CELL fought MATH OP OWAIN
(35-1418) (75-123-1,197) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  CHATTY CABALIST demolished MATH OP
OWAIN in a 1 minute uneven fight.  Math confides that he never could manage chatty
kids.
     SPARE ANCHOR (18-9610) (48-28-1,224) of SEA DOGS fought SIDEWINDER (21-6883)
(24-4-1,190) of SERPENTS HOLD.  SPARE ANCHOR won victory over SIDEWINDER in a action
packed 3 minute battle.  Imagine what the primary anchor would have done!

For the title:
     JETSAM (1-8172) (49-35-1,303) of SEA DOGS fought SMOKE (68-5868) (33-20-0,213)
of ZOMBIE SQUAD II II.  JETSAM slimly lost to SMOKE in a 15 minute bloody Title
fight.  And so it goes.  Will Smoke (congratulations) write a column?  Will anyone
write a personal?  Stop by next time to find out!
