                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     From heat wave to cool snap in a mere two weeks!  Weather is amazing.
     Also amazing is Home Guard--fifteen fights today, up two from last time, only
one standby, down two from last time.  I think--if my math is up to it--that this
means six more gladiators fighting today.  Good!
     In the notes provided by the golems, it says, "MATH OP OWAIN caught the eye of
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DON KING and was awarded
24 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MATH OP OWAIN put
down DON KING, causing him to lose 25 points of recognition in the process."  What
really caught people's eyes was Math winning at all.
     Wizard's Wrath was most avoided, by Royal Flush.
     Dominion got the most challenges and was advised to "watch his back."  Why?  It
isn't doing anything interesting.

So, fifteen fights, one standby, and four challenges.  Here we go:
     HOFFA (18-8478) (15-75-1,55) of ARROGANCE fought HAMMERHEAD (35-4129) (20-21-
2,67) of SEA DOGS.  HOFFA was handily defeated by HAMMERHEAD in a 1 minute one-sided
conflict.  Hoffa makes the Children of Llyr look like winners.  I didn't think that
was possible.
     MARCH MADNESS (10-4145) (20-8-0,54) of TERRAPIN STATION fought PITER DEVRIES (2-
5392) (17-15-0,77) of MASTERS OF SAND.  MARCH MADNESS was demolished by PITER DEVRIES
in a popular 1 minute mismatched match.  Probably not a surprise, at least the
bookies weren't surprised.  They have ways of knowing.
     HALIBUTT (5-4866) (24-21-0,66) of WIZARD'S WRATH fought HERMY (101-4) (0-0-0,50)
of the Louts Local 101.  HALIBUTT was demolished by HERMY in a crowd pleasing 2
minute bloody mismatched match.  The lone standby on the sands today, and she WINS?
Better work on that, guys.
     PRISONER 0484 (82-49671) (31-51-1,111) of DUNGEON CELL 97 fought OWAIN HARLSON
(35-3130) (53-93-1,123) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  PRISONER 0484 overpowered OWAIN HARLSON
in a popular 2 minute gory uneven match.  As all can see (who look), Owain's main
skill is in losing.  He does have flair.
     YELLOWBEARD (18-2149) (31-17-0,161) of SEA DOGS fought HOFFA (18-9369) (23-42-
0,134) of ARROGANCE.  YELLOWBEARD vanquished HOFFA in a 1 minute one-sided duel.  To
be a gladiator and called Hoffa is to be... less than stellar.

     PRISONER R02 (82-51078) (41-41-1,156) of DUNGEON CELL 4 fought IMMOVEABLE OBJECT
(59-2110) (33-13-1,180) of NOT QUITE.  PRISONER R02 lost to IMMOVEABLE OBJECT in a 2
minute fight.  Ah, "not quite" doesn't mean "easy," R02.
     SMOKE (68-5868) (37-24-0,202) of ZOMBIE SQUAD II II fought BLACKMAIL (64-3917)
(37-48-0,177) of UNDER DURESS.  SMOKE outwaited BLACKMAIL in an action packed 7
minute duel.  Seven minutes is nothing.  A couple of total parries in good training
can go HOURS.
     DON KING (47-5374) (28-25-3,204) of ROYAL FLUSH fought MATH OP OWAIN (35-1418)
(76-130-1,179) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  DON KING was handily defeated by MATH OP OWAIN
in a 1 minute uneven fight.  This is the fight that caused the most movement in the
rankings.
     HORTATOR (1-7791) (45-40-3,199) of SEA DOGS fought MANIPULATOR (64-3490) (40-63-
5,165) of UNDER DURESS.  HORTATOR devastated MANIPULATOR in a 1 minute mismatched
match.  One of the bookies assured me that a hortator is a specialist in growing
horts.  Which just goes to show what one of the bookies knows.
     CHATTY CABALIST (42-4488) (47-19-3,219) of DUNGEON CELL fought TAVIS CADFALSON
(35-1419) (64-142-3,198) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  CHATTY CABALIST was bested by TAVIS
CADFALSON in a popular 1 minute duel.  Didn't they just do this, the other way
around?

The challenges:
     JACK KNIFE (47-6694) (15-9-1,55) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged DOMINION (98-2058)
(12-21-3,71) of ZOMBIE SQUAD 3.  Up 16.  JACK KNIFE was bested by DOMINION in a
popular 4 minute Challenge contest.  Dominion was most challenged, perhaps because of
his record.  But he's working on that.
     ULDI SHOON (3-4951) (19-9-1,89) of SORCERY COVENANT challenged ASSUR (18-7821)
(26-75-2,100) of ARROGANCE.  Up 11.  ULDI SHOON was defeated by ASSUR in a 1 minute
Challenge duel.  Some people have cause for their arrogance, it seems.
     AFRICAN QUEEN (47-6424) (17-13-0,72) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged SURLY DECKHAND
(21-6568) (44-52-1,88) of SEA DOGS.  Up 16.  AFRICAN QUEEN lost to SURLY DECKHAND in
an action packed 3 minute Challenge battle.  But her decks were cleaned.
     TIFFINAL (5-4865) (24-20-2,95) of WIZARD'S WRATH challenged HUW AP HUW (35-3030)
(41-112-1,124) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  Up 29.  TIFFINAL was devastated by HUW AP HUW in
a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Bad luck, Tiff.  Looks like Huw had
"something to prove," as the saying goes.

For the title:
     SPARE ANCHOR (18-9610) (55-28-1,277) of SEA DOGS fought PERFECT TEN (47-4218)
(34-29-1,182) of ROYAL FLUSH.  SPARE ANCHOR luckily beat PERFECT TEN in a crowd
pleasing 5 minute Title match.  I don't know about that, does luck last five minutes?
In any case, congratulations, again, to Spare Anchor.
