                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Well, this is, like, totally something!  I mean, here I am, um, somewhere, don't
ask me exactly where because nobody tells me stuff like that, and here is a scribe to
write down my spy report, and a lightning pigeon to carry it, and they are being SOOO
uncooperative!  It's worse than in famous, it's...out famous.  But I'll get something
to you, even if I have to send it by umbrella!
     Anyway, here's some news about the fights, which I was kind of hoping you
wouldn't do so much fighting after being arched with, like, the biggest arch.  The
Lawmen were avoided by somebody.  Um, Colgate Days.  Probably habit.  Too much beer.
It's hard to get a glass of beer that looks really good with an umbrella in it.
     I don't think anyone was MOST challenged, except that a lot of people seem to
have been, you know, too challenged to write personals.  Is this a problem?  Should
we send kits?  Anyway, in twenty-nine fights, we had nine challenges.
     And one warrior actually killed another one!  This is, like, totally ferocious.
I didn't expect it.
     Well, now I'm going to give you about the fights, but upside down, because this
scribe that is writing it down for me keeps standing on his head and he won't get UP.
He says he IS up.  What does he know, huh?
     GOLEM (35-1485) (49-38-1,232) of THE PHILANTHROPISTS challenged THE BLOB (11-
1730) (53-29-0,203) of HORROR FILMS.  Down 29.  GOLEM was viciously subdued by THE
BLOB in a crowd pleasing 14 minute Challenge fight.  Well, you know, GOOD.  This
should be what HAPPENS when you downchallenge, unless you do an upchallenge right
away next to balance it.  We have to be balanced because of being in between Andorak
and Darkholm.  It's our job.
     PARANOIA (9-4557) (47-11-2,254) of DSM4 challenged GROGGY DOGGY (55-223) (142-
189-0,299) of RHYME TYME.  Up 45.  PARANOIA demolished GROGGY DOGGY in a popular 1
minute one-sided Challenge melee.  This is good TOO, because that dog is just such a
NUISANCE mooching around and shedding everywhere.
     CAPTAIN CAVEMAN (56-3753) (29-5-0,198) of LAFFALYMPICS challenged JULIA (60-
4651) (33-36-0,198) of ROMPER ROOM.  Straight across.  CAPTAIN CAVEMAN devastated
JULIA in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge contest.  Oh, good!  Straight across is very,
um, Free Bladesian?  Not up, not down.
     SAMPSA (31-4233) (31-37-4,163) of SOL INVICTUS challenged WHITEWING (13-4346)
(31-51-0,167) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 4.  SAMPSA was defeated by WHITEWING in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute Challenge match.  They tell me only ONE of the Sampsa brothers
turned into a cockroach, and I'm glad this isn't him.  I don't like cockroaches.
     VICTIM OF SOCIETY (55-3179) (26-29-2,116) of PHILANTHROPISTS challenged TIGRESS
(13-4471) (34-49-0,140) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 24.  VICTIM OF SOCIETY devastated
TIGRESS in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  So what are you if you're the victim
of a victim?  There should be a different word for that.
     DYNAMO (82-24403) (16-5-1,143) of PERPETUAL MOTION challenged ARTEMISIA (12-
5096) (35-39-0,142) of DARKMOON.  Down 1.  DYNAMO was devastated by ARTEMISIA in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge match.  What I want to know is, what does Darkmoon do
when the moon is full?  Is there a Brightmoon?
     WE LIKE THE MOON (25-5013) (23-11-4,67) of SPONGMONKEYS challenged LULU (32-
3523) (27-52-1,65) of FISHERMAN'S WHARF.  Down 2.  WE LIKE THE MOON was handily
defeated by LULU in a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  Lulu SAID, after the fight,
that it was the sponge that did it.  She couldn't whack it flat with her skillet.  A
skillet is just a warhammer with a wide head.
     CASSIE (29-4574) (17-11-1,80) of CROC FILES challenged MOUSE NOYLE (17-6252)
(29-46-0,58) of MIDDLE WAY.  Down 22.  CASSIE vanquished MOUSE NOYLE in an action
packed 1 minute gory uneven Challenge duel.  I don't know why.  A mouse isn't even a
mouthful for a croc.
     SATAN CLAUS (6-5878) (18-5-0,71) of HOLIDAY HORRORS challenged FURBALL (61-3002)
(22-15-3,94) of ARENA FELINES.  Up 23.  SATAN CLAUS was viciously subdued by FURBALL
in a popular 3 minute Challenge duel.  This is what HAPPENS to furballs, and it's
RIGHT that it happens to them.
     And these are the ones that are NOT challenge matches, starting with the fight
for being Lord Marshall.
     NEBUCHADNEZZAR (22-5821) (45-31-0,307) of BLADES OF WONDER fought FUNNY BUNNY
(55-1862) (109-138-1,280) of RHYME TYME.  NEBUCHADNEZZAR was beaten by FUNNY BUNNY in
a popular 1 minute Title melee.  What *I* think is that Neb should be ashamed of
himself!
     LORD REDMOND (12-4109) (43-40-1,214) of LUROCIANS IV fought ROYLAND (56-3380)
(88-59-0,207) of REDHORSE.  LORD REDMOND overpowered ROYLAND in a crowd pleasing 1
minute one-sided match.  I don't CARE what SOME people say about being him partial
about Royland, I'm GLAD he lost.
     LADY EMILY (33-6626) (37-31-1,244) of LUROCIANS II fought ROBIN OF SHEW-WOOD
(103-33) (1-0-1,220) of the College of Mimes.  LADY EMILY viciously subdued ROBIN OF
SHEW-WOOD in an exciting 3 minute brutal contest.  And Robin is, like, MAD.  So don't
go into the woods, Lady!
     LORD LIGHTSPEED (33-2928) (48-45-3,212) of LUROCIANS II fought DARTMAN (33-7161)
(26-12-2,185) of COLGATE DAYS.  LORD LIGHTSPEED devastated DARTMAN in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute mismatched bout.  And he did it really fast, too.
     RED BARON (33-1092) (47-47-3,201) of LUROCIANS II fought MILA (55-29) (79-105-
0,207) of ROCANIS RIDERS.  RED BARON overpowered MILA in a crowd pleasing 1 minute
one-sided duel.  Well, MAYBE someday Mila will figure out about only drinks with
umbrellas before the fights.  Not beer.
     WRATH OF ONE (82-11628) (24-19-2,191) of LUROCIANS XII fought KELOS (55-30) (72-
107-3,170) of ROCANIS RIDERS.  WRATH OF ONE was slaughtered by KELOS in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute one-sided fray.  This is our really mean, nasty, killing fight.
Gosh, just LOOK at Kelos's record!  He's a horrible killer!  But that's the Rirorni
for you.
     JULIUS (64-3641) (81-107-2,182) of UNDER DURESS fought TRYURLUCK (61-1029) (73-
66-1,190) of BLOOD KNIGHTS.  JULIUS was devastated by TRYURLUCK in an exciting 1
minute one-sided brawl.  Well, you know, I wasn't excited about this.  I really
wasn't.
     THE WHEAT KING (58-5407) (65-48-2,190) of AUTUMN LIGHTNING fought LORD FIREFLASH
(33-2966) (45-44-0,177) of LUROCIANS II.  THE WHEAT KING subdued LORD FIREFLASH in an
exciting 5 minute bout.  What *I* think is that Lord Fireflash is allergic to wheat.
It's awful, being allergic to wheat.  No MUFFINS.
     CHESTER CHEETAH (12-1552) (60-41-1,205) of ARENA FELINES fought PHIL
PHILANTHROPIST (20-3330) (28-51-2,176) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  CHESTER CHEETAH
overpowered PHIL PHILANTHROPIST in a 1 minute mismatched fight.  Why am I, like,
totally not surprised?
     HOUSE MOUSE (55-221) (132-194-2,198) of RHYME TYME fought THE CAT'S MEOW (12-
2073) (44-32-1,182) of ARENA FELINES.  HOUSE MOUSE was devastated by THE CAT'S MEOW
in a popular 1 minute one-sided contest.  We have too many mice in this arena.  Did
you notice?  TWO mice.  And no ducks.
     SMUG BUG (55-2900) (52-90-0,157) of RHYME TYME fought GOSSAMER (35-3656) (27-15-
1,152) of PHILANTHROPISTS 2.  SMUG BUG was unbelievably bested by GOSSAMER in a
popular 2 minute match.  Believe it.  I saw it myself.
     SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) (74-116-2,174) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY fought EYE OF
THE TIGER (33-6780) (23-11-1,146) of ARENA FELINES.  SUPERIOR FORCES handily defeated
EYE OF THE TIGER in a 1 minute uneven duel.  Well, just watch OUT next time,
Superior, because NEXT time, it might be CLAW of the tiger or almost ANYTHING.
     LOPING WOLF (56-1796) (74-119-0,147) of REDHORSE fought U.S. STEEL (49-3369)
(31-33-1,104) of THE BONDS.  LOPING WOLF devastated U.S. STEEL in a popular 1 minute
one-sided bout.  Some people just don't understand about investing.  Heck, I don't
understand about investing!  I mean, if you have money now, you should spend it now.
Not plant it and hope it grows a money tree.
     TROUNCING TORTASHELL (33-6332) (31-16-0,134) of ARENA FELINES fought REDFOX (13-
4197) (58-91-0,125) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  TROUNCING TORTASHELL was savagely defeated by
REDFOX in an exciting 5 minute gory duel.  Well, after all, foxes are just sort of
like dogs.  Of course they'd go for a cat.  What else?
     TEXAS GLITTER (35-3509) (27-14-0,106) of EXACTLY! fought ULTRAMANIAC (21-4876)
(19-10-2,131) of BLACKEST PRIDE.  TEXAS GLITTER won victory over ULTRAMANIAC in a
popular 1 minute brutal fight.  Very flashy.
     RETRIBUTION (74-2982) (21-11-1,113) of BROTHERHOOD fought JELIAH BIGABO (35-
3676) (25-6-1,104) of PHILANTHROPISTS 3.  RETRIBUTION vanquished JELIAH BIGABO in an
action packed 1 minute gory uneven bout.  Wow, I bet when Jeliah figures out what it
was he DID, he won't do it AGAIN.
     BINDI (29-4454) (20-12-2,128) of CROC FILES fought CAT IN THE HAT (12-5571) (25-
17-2,96) of ARENA FELINES II.  BINDI was handily defeated by CAT IN THE HAT in a 1
minute mismatched bout.  I KNEW it.  It's a magic hat.  Otherwise, Bindi would be
having cat-bites, right?  I mean, um, I forget what I mean.  Sorry.
     SAMARIUM (75-3071) (14-4-1,47) of I AM SAM fought LUCIFREYJA (103-40) (19-21-
1,90) of the College of Mimes.  SAMARIUM was beaten by LUCIFREYJA in a popular 4
minute fight.  Lucy does that.  Sorry, Sam.
     SAMSARA (75-3055) (11-1-0,35) of I AM SAM fought CAT FANCY (12-5739) (16-7-1,60)
of ARENA FELINES.  SAMSARA was vanquished by CAT FANCY in a 1 minute one-sided fray.
Is this not a good day for cats, or what?
     COLOSSUS (22-5820) (19-11-0,76) of BLADES OF WONDER fought BITTER ALMOND (103-
41) (14-16-4,50) of the College of Mimes.  COLOSSUS overpowered BITTER ALMOND in a 1
minute one-sided match.  And is Almond ever bitter about it!  Wow.
     Anyway, that's it for this time.  Try to write more personals for next time,
okay?
