                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Why would Snide Clemens be glad to see the back of this place?  *I* have seen 
it, and it is not a winsome sight.  Alleys generally aren't.  Even when the trash has 
been picked up--not something that happens every day, I can promise you!--they 
look... dirty.  Of course, Snide is right at home in such a setting.
     On this day shortly before the tourney, and I do mean *shortly*, we had thirty 
fights, five challenges, and two standbys.  I'm a little surprised by the challenges; 
managers get wrapped up in tourney prep.  So far as I can tell, nobody was avoiding 
anybody.

Running quickly through the fights, we see:
     TICKLE ME TIGER (11-7391) (21-15-2,46) of FURRY FURY fought BOA (1-8830) (18-15-
0,56) of SERPENTS' HOLD.  TICKLE ME TIGER handily defeated BOA in a 1 minute 
mismatched match.  Life in the jungle, eh?
     NERO (29-5707) (33-40-1,60) of TREKKERS fought ARDSHEAL (9-4183) (18-16-0,51)of 
RED FURY.  NERO was overpowered by ARDSHEAL in an exciting 1 minute gory one-sided 
fight.  It's that fury.  The red kind is the worst.
     BRITISH SEA POWER (32-5370) (16-10-0,50) of COLLEGE RADIO fought SHIV (26-5006) 
(15-12-1,43) of SERPENTS HOLD.  BRITISH SEA POWER beat SHIV in a 2 minute match.  And 
then sat down and had a cup of tea.
     FURIOUS FROGPALER (35-4309) (16-12-0,63) of BATTLE FROGS fought HOPE (29-3988) 
(21-14-1,55) of THE TAKEN.  FURIOUS FROGPALER defeated HOPE in an action packed 1 
minute gory duel.  I've noticed that hope is often like that:  defeated, and then you 
turn around and it's back again.
     DARGON (52-4264) (20-8-0,68) of DRAGONS GUARD II fought URCHIN (42-4522) (15-1-
0,87) of DUNGEON CELL.  DARGON was vanquished by URCHIN in a 1 minute one-sided bout.  
Does this mean that Urchin now threatens the dragons?  If he can take out the guards, 
what's next?

     NAKED LUNCH (78-2917) (25-22-0,69) of SHEWISH BUFFET fought ARCHERS OF LOAF (43-
4837) (20-4-0,69) of UNC COLLEGE RADIO.  NAKED LUNCH overcame ARCHERS OF LOAF in a 
crowd pleasing 1 minute bout.  The Archers didn't know where to look.  The Loafers 
are modest.
     CAT N TONIC (81-1870) (17-17-2,54) of FURRY FURY fought ZANDER (14-4759) (13-6-
1,78) of ZOMBIE SQUAD.  CAT N TONIC vanquished ZANDER in a 1 minute one-sided fray.  
So... this means that furry fury is just as bad as the red kind?  Or as good, 
depending on where you're standing.
     MONTY BURNS (82-55805) (20-32-0,59) of NUCLEAR WASTES fought B&G BOUNCER (101-3) 
(0-0-0,30) of the Louts Local 101.  MONTY BURNS was overpowered by B&G BOUNCER in an 
exciting 1 minute uneven match.  And the fact that the Bouncer won tells you how much 
Monty had been drinking, eh?
     FIDDLESTICKS (84-27559) (18-16-0,76) of ANCIENT CURSES fought STICKY FINGERS 
(42-4523) (22-5-1,75) of DUNGEON CELL.  FIDDLESTICKS was narrowly defeated by STICKY 
FINGERS in a popular 3 minute duel.  There's a tale in this one, but no time to 
relate it--we're talking pages of words here.  And all for an awkward play on words!  
I'll pass today.
     INNARD SKINARD (98-3573) (11-9-4,62) of T-3 fought GIRL SCOUT COOKIE (61-3633) 
(16-9-1,74) of SHEWISH BUFFET.  INNARD SKINARD narrowly defeated GIRL SCOUT COOKIE in 
an action packed 9 minute fight.  More than one cookie, if it took Innard that long 
to polish it off.

     VULCAN (99-3864) (8-11-4,26) of DODEKATHEON fought URA GONER (8-5214) (14-3-
0,74) of YOU PAY I SLAY.  VULCAN was vanquished by URA GONER in a popular 1 minute 
brutal mismatched fray.  Mismatched... yes, I think you could say that.  It isn't 
easy, being a Bloodgamer:  you sweat and bleed and kill, you come out in front of the 
pack, and then... warriors with more experience hit you upside the head.
     LI KUI (52-851) (28-27-1,95) of WAH CHING fought MR. YUCK (29-3994) (16-7-0,63) 
of THE TAKEN.  LI KUI demolished MR. YUCK in a 1 minute uneven bout.  I should hope 
so!
     HULL SCRUBBER (33-7823) (21-1-1,100) of SEA DOGS fought GRAVITRON (19-5369) (15-
3-1,58) of THE MOTHERSHIP CC.  HULL SCRUBBER overpowered GRAVITRON in a 1 minute 
uneven fight.  Gotta keep that hull CLEAN.
     TOXIC SLUDGE (13-5511) (23-22-2,96) of MMM BEER! fought HARBOR MASTER (18-10008) 
(18-8-1,78) of SEA DOGS.  TOXIC SLUDGE was overpowered by HARBOR MASTER in a 1 minute 
mismatched conflict.  That sludge has to be hauled OUT of the harbor; let it poison 
fish no one can see.
     HARE BINGER (81-1790) (27-19-2,148) of FURRY FURY fought YELLOWBEARD (18-2149) 
(33-20-0,133) of SEA DOGS.  HARE BINGER savagely defeated YELLOWBEARD in an exciting 
3 minute brutal bout.  Defeated and then SHAVED the dirty Dog!

     KUNG PAO KOLACTAN (63-2882) (29-17-2,143) of SHEWISH BUFFET fought LORETTA (101-
8) (0-0-0,110) of the Louts Local 101.  KUNG PAO KOLACTAN bested LORETTA in an 
exciting 1 minute fight.  She never could handle foreign food.
     RAGGYMAN (38-1588) (24-21-1,133) of SOUL WARRIORS fought WELL DON (16-6079) (22-
3-0,92) of GARBAGE PAIL KIDS.  RAGGYMAN was handily defeated by WELL DON in a 1 
minute mismatched bout.  Snide--remember him?--felt that the point movements in this 
fight were significant:  Well went up 34, Raggy down 26.
     VIPER (36-7544) (32-16-0,134) of SERPENTS HOLD fought NASTY NES (50-142) (43-44-
1,137) of PUBLIC ENEMY.  VIPER overpowered NASTY NES in a crowd pleasing 1 minute 
gruesome one-sided duel.  The clerks listed this as one-sided, but it looked to ME 
like these two were well matched.  Something about the way they circled and hissed at 
each other.
     THRESHPACK (50-138) (34-45-0,101) of PUBLIC ENEMY fought FISHWIFE (33-7822) (22-
20-4,110) of SEA DOGS.  THRESHPACK viciously subdued FISHWIFE in a crowd pleasing 2 
minute bloody bout.  The stewards wouldn't let Fishwife bring her fish into the 
arena; if she could have thrown a swordfish at him, things might have gone 
differently.
     WHAT'S A VOLKSIE? (38-4563) (35-29-0,162) of TEAM FLOYD fought VIPER (3-7087) 
(41-41-0,167) of SERPENTS' HOLD.  WHAT'S A VOLKSIE? was handily defeated by VIPER in 
a 1 minute one-sided contest.  A second victorious Viper!

     NIGHTSHADE (29-3773) (21-14-0,165) of THE TAKEN fought SLAP YOURSELF SILLY (21-
4697) (47-46-0,136) of SORE LOSERS.  NIGHTSHADE was overpowered by SLAP YOURSELF 
SILLY in a 1 minute one-sided match.  The question now is, is Slap a gloating winner?
     RED ALERT (50-139) (42-38-1,169) of PUBLIC ENEMY fought TRIDENT (29-3767) (26-8-
0,107) of THE TAKEN.  RED ALERT savagely defeated TRIDENT in an action packed 2 
minute gory match.  Naturally.  Look at the difference in experience.
     BURIED TREASURE (33-7722) (24-9-0,158) of SEA DOGS fought XAVIER (75-2071) (24-
9-2,132) of RUNEBLADES.  BURIED TREASURE was vanquished by XAVIER in a 1 minute one-
sided duel.  Everybody join Xavier at the Bash and Glug, where he is buying drinks 
all around for as long as the treasure lasts.
     ROTTING ROLAND (32-5437) (36-20-0,207) of THE WALKING DEAD fought MANNY LEHMAN 
(51-5074) (32-35-1,154) of COLLEGE RADIO.  ROTTING ROLAND vanquished MANNY LEHMAN in 
a popular 1 minute uneven duel.  It was the smell, mostly.

Ah, the challenges!
     HAMILCAR (21-7575) (17-14-2,60) of BLOOD AND SAND challenged CERES (99-3866) (8-
11-4,76) of DODEKATHEON.  Up 16.  HAMILCAR was vanquished by CERES in an exciting 1 
minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Ceriously!  Okay, bad pun, but I had to do it.  
Some things can't be bottled up without health risks.
     THE DARK FROG (35-4347) (19-8-2,69) of BATTLE FROGS challenged HOFFA (18-9369) 
(33-99-0,34) of ARROGANCE.  Down 35.  THE DARK FROG savagely defeated HOFFA in a 
crowd pleasing 3 minute Challenge match.  Hoffa was most challenged, and Snide, not 
looking beyond the surface, made, well, snide comments about the downchallenge.  You 
gotta look at the records, too.  This Hoffa is a professional loser.
     FROG FRACTURE (98-3813) (13-8-3,29) of MURDEROUS FROGS 3 challenged HOFFA (18-
8478) (29-128-1,49) of ARROGANCE.  Up 20.  FROG FRACTURE viciously subdued HOFFA in a 
crowd pleasing 4 minute Challenge brawl.  This one, too.  Easy wins.
     ARTHUR DENT (11-7305) (29-29-0,158) of THE HITCHHIKERS challenged RABID TOAD 
(98-2767) (19-25-4,169) of BLOOD FROGS 2.  Up 11.  ARTHUR DENT was overcome by RABID 
TOAD in a popular 1 minute Challenge match.  Never mess with a rabid toad, or a rabid 
anything.
     DAGAN (21-7201) (35-29-0,183) of BLOOD AND SAND challenged ASSUR (18-7821) (56-
112-2,190) of ARROGANCE.  Up 7.  DAGAN was devastated by ASSUR in an action packed 1 
minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Oops!  Not the winner you might have expected.

For the title:
     RUPTURE (99-3463) (27-17-4,252) of BLOOD GANG fought GOPHER BAROQUE (2-3359) 
(79-68-0,190) of CREAM OF THE SLOP.  RUPTURE viciously subdued GOPHER BAROQUE in an 
action packed 7 minute Title fight.  No change.  Congratulations to Rupture.
