                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Well!  This is TOTALLY gazebo!  I am so mad I could just SPIT, but I'm not mad 
at you guys, so I won't.  At least, not right NOW.

     Fear Factory was avoided by Exactly!  Why not.  Somebody's got to do it.
     Whitewing got the most challenges.  He's having a yard sale.  Two challenges for 
the price of one.
     Twenty-one fights, twelve challenges (one TV), and nobody died.

     REPRISAL (82-14465) (10-4-1,35) of THE BROTHERHOOD 10 challenged JAVELINO (56-
3728) (27-20-0,48) of REDHORSE.  Up 13.  REPRISAL overpowered JAVELINO in a 1 minute 
one-sided Challenge match.  More roast pig.  Or maybe even burned pig.  See if *I* 
care.
     COLOSSUS (22-5820) (23-13-0,92) of BLADES OF WONDER challenged PROPANE TORCH 
(61-2524) (24-18-1,113) of FEAR FACTORY.  Up 21.  COLOSSUS overpowered PROPANE TORCH 
in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  How do you overpower a torch?  Water 
buckets?
     SAMARIUM (75-3071) (18-7-1,91) of I AM SAM challenged TIGRESS (13-4471) (36-55-
0,144) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 53.  SAMARIUM lost to TIGRESS in a popular 2 minute 
gory Challenge duel.  This is silly, Sam.
     SATAN CLAUS (6-5878) (23-8-0,100) of HOLIDAY HORRORS challenged MOUSE NOYLE (17-
6252) (32-51-0,87) of MIDDLE WAY.  Down 13.  SATAN CLAUS vanquished MOUSE NOYLE in a 
popular 1 minute uneven Challenge duel.  Found somebody you could beat and now you 
won't let go, huh?  Why not.  We might as well be Darkholm East here.  See if *I* 
care.
     VICTIM OF SOCIETY (55-3179) (30-33-2,150) of PHILANTHROPISTS challenged 
WHITEWING (13-4346) (33-57-0,162) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 12.  VICTIM OF SOCIETY 
overpowered WHITEWING in a 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.  Everybody does it.
     WE LIKE THE MOON (25-5013) (29-13-4,137) of SPONGMONKEYS challenged U.S. STEEL 
(49-3369) (35-37-1,140) of THE BONDS.  Up 3.  WE LIKE THE MOON beat U.S. STEEL in a 
crowd pleasing 1 minute Challenge brawl.  What if we want TWO moons?  Can we clone a 
moon?
     GOSSAMER (35-3656) (31-19-1,164) of PHILANTHROPISTS 2 challenged MORTIFICATION 
(61-2333) (37-25-4,164) of FEAR FACTORY.  Straight across.  GOSSAMER slimly won 
victory over MORTIFICATION in a popular 3 minute Challenge duel.  See who's mortified 
now.
     JELIAH BIGABO (35-3676) (29-10-2,180) of PHILANTHROPISTS 3 challenged 3 FISTED 
RAT BOY (70-6130) (30-32-3,181) of GWAR.  Up 1.  JELIAH BIGABO subdued 3 FISTED RAT 
BOY in a 1 minute Challenge competition.  Isn't it hard to buy gloves for three 
fists?
     RETROVIRUS (70-6086) (31-20-0,200) of FEAR FACTORY IV challenged KELOS (55-30) 
(76-111-4,203) of ROCANIS RIDERS.  Up 3.  RETROVIRUS devastated KELOS in a popular 1 
minute one-sided Challenge contest.  Well, that kind of thing happens a lot.  You 
need more umbrellas in your drinks.
     RIDDLER (61-1856) (58-40-1,190) of FEAR FACTORY challenged SMUG BUG (55-2900) 
(55-95-0,190) of RHYME TYME.  Straight across.  RIDDLER luckily beat SMUG BUG in an 
action packed 2 minute Challenge fight.  You shouldn't need luck for this, Riddle-
boy.

     NEBUCHADNEZZAR (22-5821) (45-38-0,184) of BLADES OF WONDER TV challenged TEXAS 
GLITTER (35-3509) (33-16-0,190) of EXACTLY!.  Up 6.  NEBUCHADNEZZAR bested TEXAS 
GLITTER in a crowd pleasing 3 minute Challenge fight.  You know crowds.  They'll 
laugh at anything.

     And for the title:  DARTMAN (33-7161) (33-13-2,262) of COLGATE DAYS misjudged 
and challenged FUNNY BUNNY (55-1862) (114-141-1,221) of RHYME TYME.  Down 41.  
DARTMAN was vanquished by FUNNY BUNNY in a 1 minute uneven Challenge Title battle.  
Funny won't write a column, but then, neither did Dartman.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Tryurluck -- Nice cutting.  You're pretty quick. -- Loping Wolf

Dartman -- You almost didn't get the jump on me.  But for an overconfident young 
punk, you've got a lot of ability.  Well done. -- Kelos
P.S.  Whew!  I just realized our fight was the title fight.  GOOD going, man.  I look 
forward to reading your column.  Glad I didn't have to write one!

     Ha!

House Mouse -- Ow.  Still got a headache from that. -- Mila

Hey I beat Arunda Rocktroll, a TP stand-in.  She was good though.  And someone should 
tell her manager to change her trains. -- Royland

     Standbys don't HAVE managers, and they don't get to keep their trains, either.

Count me in for the barbecue at the Fisherman's Wharf!  And the rest of Redhorse and 
Rocanis Riders, of course.  We never turn down free food. -- Royland, who is bringing 
two loaves of garlic bread and a tub of potato salad

Debby Tonte -- I am seldom savage and nasty, never unreliable, and my eyes are not 
too close together.  You like me.  Admit it. -- Royland

     As if!

Debby -- Last turn you used the word "gazebo" in at least three statements:
     1.  "Nobody tells me anything.  It's all gazebo." (context implying it's a bad
      thing)
     2.  "This time of year is totally gazebo."  (context implying it's a very good
      thing)
     3.  "I can't say it here.  It's too gazebo.  Sorry." (context implying it's a
      shocking thing.)
Now, far be it from me to pin you down to a precise definition, but could we maybe 
agree on whether being gazebo is good or bad? -- Royland
P.S.  I was just thinking where is the best sort of place to sip drinks with little 
umbrellas in them.  If I were to build you a little platform out in your back yard -- 
say, next summer --  with a roof over it and some built-in seats on the inside and 
fancy lattice work around the outside, what would you like to call such a structure?

     A summerhouse.

Lulu -- Thanks for the skills, pretty lady. -- Javelino

Satan Claus -- Okay, so you don't like me stirring on the night before you-know-when.  
Well, BIG HAIRY DEAL.  I'm gonna do it. -- Mouse Noyle

Texas Glitter -- Blinding. -- Whitewing

Mortification -- Lose to me once, okay, it could happen.  Lose to me twice and you'll 
deserve your name.  Everyone here will tell you what a pud I am. -- Redfox
P.S.  I didn't set out to be a pud.  It just happened.

Outfoxed?  I like that! -- Redfox

Superior Forces -- Heck. -- Tigress

Pungent Stench -- I have a nose of steel. -- U.S. Steel

Javelino -- Well, it IS a good day for roasting a pig. -- Lulu
P.S.  Not EVERYBODY, Debby, there are too many people on the Isle, even for a six-
foot dwarf.

     Better a six foot dwarf than a four foot Shew.

Kelos -- Or maybe I should try going to bed earlier the night before. -- Tigress
