                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Sorry for the delay, I had to get my hair cut.  NOT my idea, what do I need with
haircuts?  I'm dead.  But people were insistent.  It was easier to do it than keep
arguing.
     So, the fights.  Significant point movements:  Pires up 37, Slap Yourself Silly
down 31.  Same fight.
     Most avoided, Asian Invasion.  By Trekkers.  At least, that's what the clerks
say.  Most challenged, Hoffa, though I don't know which one.
     Hot flash, there are more dishwashers per capita (which I presume means per the
capita of the entire city's population) than fighters.  Works for me.  Clean dishes
are important.
     Twenty-six fights, four challenges, three standbys.

     HOFFA (18-9369) (33-95-0,42) of ARROGANCE fought TICKLE ME TIGER (11-7391) (19-
13-2,55) of FURRY FURY.  HOFFA was handily defeated by TICKLE ME TIGER in an exciting
1 minute uneven bout.  Obviously not the Most Challenged Hoffa.  Hoffas are like
fruit flies, always more of them around than you think.
     THE DARK FROG (35-4347) (17-6-2,62) of BATTLE FROGS fought HAMILCAR (21-7575)
(16-11-2,57) of BLOOD AND SAND.  THE DARK FROG demolished HAMILCAR in a 1 minute
gruesome one-sided melee.  I'm beginning to worry about this creeping invasion of
frogs.  There are even more of them than there are Hoffas!
     INNARD SKINARD (98-3573) (10-6-4,60) of T-3 fought MONTY BURNS (82-55805) (19-
29-0,67) of NUCLEAR WASTES.  INNARD SKINARD was overpowered by MONTY BURNS in a
popular 1 minute gory uneven fight.  I've had burning innards now and then.  Not fun.
     FROG FRACTURE (98-3813) (12-5-3,32) of MURDEROUS FROGS 3 fought URA GONER (8-
5214) (11-2-0,74) of YOU PAY I SLAY.  FROG FRACTURE was overpowered by URA GONER in a
1 minute uneven fight.  Anybody surprised by this one?
     DAEMYN (71-2940) (9-4-0,65) of WRATHMEN XXV fought ARDSHEAL (9-4183) (18-15-
0,57) of RED FURY.  DAEMYN devastated ARDSHEAL in a 1 minute one-sided bout.  It's
all that wrath.  Potent stuff, wrath.
     ARTHUR DENT (11-7305) (25-29-0,87) of THE HITCHHIKERS fought FURIOUS FROGPALER
(35-4309) (15-9-0,54) of BATTLE FROGS.  ARTHUR DENT handily defeated FURIOUS
FROGPALER in a 1 minute uneven duel.  He paled the frog, in fact.

     WELL DON (16-6079) (19-2-0,59) of GARBAGE PAIL KIDS fought CAT N TONIC (81-1870)
(16-14-2,64) of FURRY FURY.  WELL DON overpowered CAT N TONIC in a popular 1 minute
one-sided duel.  Quite right.  Tonic is better with gin than with cat.
     KEISHA (11-7584) (18-8-0,58) of WRATHMEN DM 20 fought NERO (29-5707) (31-38-
1,77) of TREKKERS.  KEISHA was bested by NERO in a 2 minute bout.  You'd think the
handicapper could come up with closer matches, wouldn't you?  But this wasn't one-
sided.
     SEAM (71-3319) (17-3-2,84) of ARENAS III fought ZANTOS (38-3000) (17-5-0,46) of
SOUL WARRIORS.  SEAM defeated ZANTOS in a crowd pleasing 1 minute conflict.  I hear
that a zanto, or maybe a zante?, is a kind of dried fruit.
     KUNG PAO KOLACTAN (63-2882) (27-15-2,91) of SHEWISH BUFFET fought LI KUI (52-
851) (25-26-1,90) of WAH CHING.  KUNG PAO KOLACTAN demolished LI KUI in an exciting 1
minute one-sided bout.  Next time, bring chopsticks, Li Kui.
     NASTY NES (50-142) (42-41-1,150) of PUBLIC ENEMY fought THEATRE BUM (101-6) (0-
0-0,130) of the Louts Local 101.  NASTY NES devastated THEATRE BUM in a popular 2
minute brutal mismatched brawl.  Good.  Who cares about the Bum?
     RED ALERT (50-139) (41-35-0,122) of PUBLIC ENEMY fought KATRINA (101-9) (0-0-
0,170) of the Louts Local 101.  RED ALERT dispatched KATRINA in an exciting 1 minute
fray.  Forceful guy, Red.

     RABID TOAD (98-2767) (18-22-4,147) of BLOOD FROGS 2 fought B'ZIADUL (71-3311)
(31-20-1,149) of WRATHMEN XIV.  RABID TOAD was vanquished by B'ZIADUL in a 1 minute
mismatched bout.  The value of experience.
     HARE BINGER (81-1790) (25-17-2,118) of FURRY FURY fought SINCEMILLA (71-3308)
(22-8-0,122) of WRATHMEN XIV.  HARE BINGER was overpowered by SINCEMILLA in a popular
1 minute mismatched conflict.  Did Sincemilla hand out a hare cut?  If I have to get
one, so can the Binger.
     XAVIER (75-2071) (22-7-2,143) of RUNEBLADES fought THRESHPACK (50-138) (33-42-
0,104) of PUBLIC ENEMY.  XAVIER demolished THRESHPACK in a 1 minute mismatched match.
Threshed and thrashed.
     ASSUR (18-7821) (53-111-2,176) of ARROGANCE fought WHAT'S A VOLKSIE? (38-4563)
(33-27-0,122) of TEAM FLOYD.  ASSUR bested WHAT'S A VOLKSIE? in a crowd pleasing 1
minute conflict.  So, anybody going to tell us what a Volksie is?
     SLAP YOURSELF SILLY (21-4697) (45-44-0,169) of SORE LOSERS fought PIRES (7-5665)
(21-7-0,119) of IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS.  SLAP YOURSELF SILLY was overpowered by PIRES
in an exciting 1 minute one-sided fight.  And thus the major point movements.

     IRONIC TWIST (65-7198) (32-3-1,189) of THE MOTHERSHIP CE fought RUPTURE (99-
3463) (23-17-4,182) of BLOOD GANG.  IRONIC TWIST was overpowered by RUPTURE in an
action packed 1 minute one-sided fight.  Yep, if you twist hard enough, you WILL
rupture stuff.
     SHARK BAIT (33-7652) (53-39-0,204) of SEA DOGS fought BATTLING BOB (101-26) (0-
0-0,200) of the Louts Local 101.  SHARK BAIT was overpowered by BATTLING BOB in a 1
minute uneven duel.  That Bob is fairly shark-like himself.
     ROTTING ROLAND (32-5437) (33-19-0,187) of THE WALKING DEAD fought OHMYGOD (63-
2147) (31-10-1,188) of WRATHMEN.  ROTTING ROLAND was handily defeated by OHMYGOD in a
1 minute uneven melee.  Roland needs more corpse perserver.
     CAO ZHENG (54-85) (46-44-6,216) of ASIAN INVASION fought DAGAN (21-7201) (34-26-
0,191) of BLOOD AND SAND.  CAO ZHENG overpowered DAGAN in a popular 1 minute
mismatched brawl.  This one doesn't move me to words.
     HORSE D'OEUVRE (61-3635) (36-7-3,228) of SHEWISH BUFFET fought PHIL HELLMUTH (1-
7842) (34-12-1,184) of POKER GREATS.  HORSE D'OEUVRE vanquished PHIL HELLMUTH in a 1
minute mismatched fight.  I've heard you should avoid eating those things.

The challenges:
     VULCAN (99-3864) (8-7-4,48) of DODEKATHEON challenged NAKED LUNCH (78-2917) (23-
20-0,58) of SHEWISH BUFFET.  Up 10.  VULCAN was demolished by NAKED LUNCH in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge competition.  At the buffet tonight, remember not to take
too much, because if you can't eat what you've chosen, IT will eat YOU.  Starting
with the Lunch.
     MANNY LEHMAN (51-5074) (29-34-1,89) of COLLEGE RADIO challenged HOFFA (18-8478)
(29-124-1,44) of ARROGANCE.  Down lots.  Forty-five?  Something like that.  But hey,
it's a Hoffa.  MANNY LEHMAN viciously subdued HOFFA in a popular 2 minute gory
Challenge contest.
     JACK DANIELS (41-3947) (31-16-0,196) of I C DRUNK PEOPLE challenged GOPHER
BAROQUE (2-3359) (77-66-0,194) of CREAM OF THE SLOP.  Down 2.  JACK DANIELS handily
defeated GOPHER BAROQUE in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge match.  Now Gopher is
baroquen.

For the title:
     CAPTAIN KIRK (29-5754) (39-15-1,258) of TREKKERS challenged RALTUMAN OMELET (78-
2857) (34-14-2,230) of SHEWISH BUFFET.  Down 28.  CAPTAIN KIRK was devastated by
RALTUMAN OMELET in a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.  That's one tough egg.  Good
work.

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

    There was a line outside the Gladiatorial Commission's registry office.  There 
often was, but surely not now?  Alarond the Scribe, who had drawn office duty today, 
frowned at them.
    A stocky, fit, moderately handsome gladiator stepped up to the counter.  "I want a 
name-change," he said.  "How can I do my best known as," he shuddered, "'Dangling 
Eyeball'?  My name is Joe, and I want to use it."
    A small and very shapely woman stepped up beside him.  "And I am really tired of 
being known as 'DA Bait'."  She smiled, causing Alarond to sway where he stood.  "I'd 
like to be known as... Aphrodite, I think."
    The others crowded forward, each advancing a claim, the babble of voice rising to 
a roar, the crowd beginning to look like a mob--and every member of it armed and 
dangerous.
    Alarond raised his hands to quiet them, without much success.  He raised his 
voice, too.  "We'll do it!  A Name-Change-O-Rama, as soon as we can get the paperwork 
lined up!  Two or three months, maybe--"
    The gladiators howled in protest at the delay.
    "No, listen!  The files here are HUGE, it will take time to get everything 
straight.  You've got to be patient.  It WILL happen!"
