                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, today we have fifteen fights with only one standby, and this despite the
fact that the cat-of-the-house has dislocated his hip.  Not so bad.  Five challenges,
even.
     Celtic Druid got the most points at twenty-six, with Hammerhead losing the most
at twenty-three.  Same fight.
     Sea Dogs was most avoided by Royal Flush.
     Smoke got the most challenges.

     CELTIC DRUID (7-5043) (13-6-0,45) of ARCANE POWER fought HAMMERHEAD (35-4129)
(21-21-2,75) of SEA DOGS.  CELTIC DRUID overpowered HAMMERHEAD in a 1 minute uneven
struggle.  This was the "Major Readjustment" fight.
     BLACK ARCANUM (63-2509) (3-2-0,34) of THE MOTHERSHIP 6 fought STOWAWAY (18-9722)
(29-29-4,55) of SEA DOGS.  BLACK ARCANUM overcame STOWAWAY in an action packed 1
minute fight.  I'm sure that Stowaway doesn't mind being a toad.
     SURLY DECKHAND (21-6568) (45-52-1,94) of SEA DOGS fought MONTY PYTHON (22-5939)
(21-7-0,70) of SERPENTINE INC.  SURLY DECKHAND devastated MONTY PYTHON in a 1 minute
mismatched bout.  Some people make it a point of honor not to laugh.
     OWAIN HARLSON (35-3130) (53-94-1,107) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought PRISONER 0484
(82-49671) (32-51-1,130) of DUNGEON CELL 97.  OWAIN HARLSON was devastated by
PRISONER 0484 in a 3 minute mismatched conflict.  Anyone surprised?

     ASSUR (18-7821) (27-75-2,107) of ARROGANCE fought WARHEAD (82-13913) (26-11-
0,126) of PYROMANIA.  ASSUR was overpowered by WARHEAD in a 1 minute one-sided match.
Burn, baby.
     YELLOWBEARD (18-2149) (32-17-0,164) of SEA DOGS fought HOFFA (18-9369) (23-43-
0,135) of ARROGANCE.  YELLOWBEARD savagely defeated HOFFA in an action packed 4
minute gory match.  They tell me that this is what Hoffas are for.
     PRISONER R02 (82-51078) (41-42-1,162) of DUNGEON CELL 4 fought HUW AP HUW (35-
3030) (42-112-1,130) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  PRISONER R02 overpowered HUW AP HUW in a
popular 5 minute uneven duel.  Ah, I knew that Huw couldn't keep it up.  Winning, not
other things.
     CHATTY CABALIST (42-4488) (47-20-3,195) of DUNGEON CELL fought NAIHREN (101-27)
(0-0-0,240) of the Louts Local 101.  CHATTY CABALIST lost to NAIHREN in an action
packed 1 minute duel.  Sometimes you talk when you should be listening to your
instincts screaming, "RUN!"
     HORTATOR (1-7791) (46-40-3,201) of SEA DOGS fought MANIPULATOR (64-3490) (40-64-
5,166) of UNDER DURESS.  HORTATOR overpowered MANIPULATOR in a 1 minute uneven melee.
Okay.  Not really sure what there is to say about this one.

The challenges:
     MARCH MADNESS (10-4145) (20-9-0,51) of TERRAPIN STATION challenged HOFFA (18-
8478) (15-76-1,48) of ARROGANCE.  Down 3.  MARCH MADNESS viciously subdued HOFFA in a
popular 2 minute bloody Challenge duel.  And another Hoffa goes down.
     AFRICAN QUEEN (47-6424) (17-14-0,74) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged DOMINION (98-
2058) (13-21-3,78) of ZOMBIE SQUAD 3.  Up 4.  AFRICAN QUEEN was defeated by DOMINION
in a crowd pleasing 4 minute Challenge match.  This is the whole "colonial" thing,
right?
     DON KING (47-5374) (28-26-3,179) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged BLACKMAIL (64-3917)
(37-49-0,180) of UNDER DURESS.  Up 1.  DON KING was vanquished by BLACKMAIL in a
popular 1 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  Kinda makes you wonder what Blackmail
knows, doesn't it?
     PERFECT TEN (47-4218) (34-30-1,192) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged TAVIS CADFALSON
(35-1419) (65-142-3,221) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  Up 29.  PERFECT TEN narrowly defeated
TAVIS CADFALSON in an exciting 4 minute Challenge melee.  Narrowly?  Hmm.
     IMMOVEABLE OBJECT (59-2110) (34-13-1,182) of NOT QUITE challenged SMOKE (68-
5868) (38-24-0,204) of ZOMBIE SQUAD II II.  Up 22.  IMMOVEABLE OBJECT unbelievably
bested SMOKE in a 16 minute Challenge fight.  I don't believe the sixteen minutes.  
On a hot and humid day like this?  Give the fans a break.  Give yourselves a break!

For the title:
     SPARE ANCHOR (18-9610) (56-28-1,281) of SEA DOGS fought MATH OP OWAIN (35-1418)
(77-130-1,203) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  SPARE ANCHOR outlasted MATH OP OWAIN in a crowd
pleasing 9 minute Title brawl.  At least it was only nine minutes.  And there the
Anchor continues to sit.  Good job.  Maybe you can get promoted to Primary Anchor.

Jorja -- We will almost certainly be requiring the services of your warrior, Math Op
Owain, to represent the PS style in the upcoming Regional Tourney.  Welcome aboard!
-- One Armed Bandit

All -- The Home Guard team for the upcoming Regional Tourney is shaping up nicely,
with warriors from myself, Floyd, Jorja, Mannequin, Marmaduke and the Visionist
preparing to represent our fine arena.  If anyone else who is lurking about the arena
would like to join in the fun, we can definitely make room for more!  Just send me a
diplo or make yourself known in the personal ads. -- One Armed Bandit, mgr of Sea
Dogs, Dungeon Cell

Can I sue Olaf Modeen for his slurs on my fighting ability? -- Math op Owain

Prisoner 0484 -- Don't listen to that Oaf Modeen.  Yes, I have flair, but "losing
fights" isn't part of it.  Thaqt's just because of a late night last night. -- Owain
Harlson

Don King -- I don't know that I'd call that fight "handy," but the win is always
welcome. -- Math op Owain

Chatty Cabalist -- I don't mind revisiting a fight, if I get to win. -- Tavis
Cadfalson

Tiffinal -- I don't know about "something to prove," but it was win the fight today
or do dishes in the guildhouse for the rest of the year. -- Huw ap Huw
P.S.  I look terrible with dishpan hands.
