Some of these entries have a question mark where the manager's name should go.  I
don't have an updated version here, and this is cobbled together as best I can do.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Debby Tonte isn't here today.  Nobody knows where she went, but my best guess is
skiing.  Sliding down snow-covered mountains on polished sticks.  That's just about
the kind of thing Debby WOULD do.  She's just asking for a broken leg or a close 
encounter with a snow troll, and who knows which would be worse?  Myself, I try to
avoid both.

     Knights of Rocanis were avoided by Do It Again.  Sounds to me like somebody's
worried the Knights WILL do it again.  Whatever "it" was.
     Samarium may have gotten the most challenges.  It's hard to be sure, because
there's some kind of blot on this page of notes.  Blood, sweat, tears, beer, sausage
grease?  Who can guess?
     Twenty-two fights, involving three standbys.  Ten challenges, one of them tv
and, as Debby would say if she were here, the rest radio.

     MANDORALLEN (56-2288) (20-7-1,68) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS fought FALLING ROCK (29-
4286) (20-25-0,56) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  MANDORALLEN won victory over FALLING ROCK in a
1 minute fray.  Easy meat, Mandorallen, show us something hard!
     BLACK WOLF (29-4194) (30-24-1,96) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought MAREI (103-37) (38-
32-2,150) of the College of Mimes.  BLACK WOLF was demolished by MAREI in a 1 minute
uneven bout.  That's gotta hurt!
     TALL TREE (29-4380) (24-35-0,113) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought HELYSE (103-36) (45-
35-5,165) of the College of Mimes.  TALL TREE was viciously subdued by HELYSE in a
popular 1 minute gruesome bout.  Oho!  This is good, I'm seeing a trend here.  I can
hardly wait for the next match....
     STONETOOTH (29-4560) (26-27-0,115) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought XHUGHA KARGARIT
(103-38) (32-28-1,130) of the College of Mimes.  STONETOOTH was overpowered by XHUGHA
KARGARIT in a 3 minute one-sided match.  Yep!  The standbys went three-oh against
these Cardow Hunters, and there will be celebration tonight in the Mimes' Guildhouse.
     MAGGIE (55-637) (31-40-1,150) of THE SIMPSONS fought COMRADE KOOK (12-6339) (31-
24-1,98) of CULTS-R-US.  MAGGIE overpowered COMRADE KOOK in an exciting 1 minute one-
sided bout.  And is anybody surprised at this?  Surely there were better, evener
matches available?
     THE QUICKLING (70-1669) (80-176-2,191) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought SAMSARA (75-
3055) (19-16-0,186) of I AM SAM.  THE QUICKLING was bested by SAMSARA in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute brawl.  Quickly, yes.  Makes sense.

     FACELESS KILLER (65-4853) (22-13-2,190) of CALM DOWN! fought REQUIEM (11-4472)
(40-31-0,183) of BALLAD OF THE BLADE.  FACELESS KILLER was vanquished by REQUIEM in a
1 minute one-sided fray.  Something here seems strangely appropriate, but I'm not up
for deducing--or inducing--such things tonight.  Just want to get this done.  It
isn't like anybody's going to read it.
     CLAUDIUS (13-2860) (50-37-2,190) of I, CLAUDIUS fought SHEYN (64-4157) (27-7-
2,180) of HEART OF DARKNESS.  CLAUDIUS was overpowered by SHEYN in a crowd pleasing 1
minute one-sided duel.  Makes sense that the "heart of darkness" should be found in
Kurukar.  Strange doings up that way.  Avoid the area, that's my advice.
     SMUG BUG (55-2900) (69-136-0,190) of RHYME TYME fought CORRUPTION (82-22745)
(20-8-0,164) of THE BROTHERHOOD 40.  SMUG BUG was overpowered by CORRUPTION in a 1
minute mismatched conflict.  Good work.  Nobody likes a bug.  Well, I suppose there
are some birds and frogs that like bugs, in a way, but I'm not either a bird or a
frog, so I don't care.
     NOREASTER (35-3896) (34-19-1,208) of DIRT DEVILS fought DARK JUSTICE (56-2004)
(25-22-0,188) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  NOREASTER demolished DARK JUSTICE in a 1 minute
mismatched match.  Doesn't look like there was any justice in this, dark or
otherwise.  But what else is new?  This is gladiatorial combat, it isn't about
justice.
     JULIUS (64-3641) (124-127-2,247) of UNDER DURESS fought FUNNY BUNNY (55-1862)
(152-158-2,245) of RHYME TYME.  JULIUS demolished FUNNY BUNNY in a crowd pleasing 1
minute bloody mismatched match.  Couple of fossils.  I gotta admit, I saw them
flailing away at each other and I laughed.

The challenge matches.
     BLOODY EASTER BUNNY (6-5877) (19-4-2,74) of HOLIDAY HORRORS challenged CEDAR
(29-4319) (19-10-1,68) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 6.  BLOODY EASTER BUNNY vanquished
CEDAR in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  You've got to hand it to those
Delarquans, they know how to win.  That's important.
     SAM (70-466) (11-3-0,135) of CHEERS challenged SISTER X (12-6340) (28-26-0,147)
of CULTS-R-US.  Up 12.  SAM was vanquished by SISTER X in a 1 minute one-sided
Challenge duel.  Yes, but did she kiss him at the end?  A sudden darkness descended
on the arena right after the fight, and I couldn't see.
     CITY MILITIA (56-2200) (20-13-0,159) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS challenged KOOKABURRA
(33-4151) (91-117-4,174) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.  Up 15.  CITY MILITIA defeated
KOOKABURRA in an action packed 2 minute gruesome Challenge melee.  And it's amazing
how much of a mess you can make with cookie crumbs!
     MILLHOUSE (55-1324) (21-20-0,158) of THE SIMPSONS challenged MALT-O-MEAL (60-
7527) (29-16-1,170) of CHILDHOOD TRAUMA.  Up 12.  MILLHOUSE was overpowered by MALT-
O-MEAL in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  Some people can't handle wheat.  Go
for oatmeal next time, Millhouse.

     ROWARDENN (16-4105) (29-18-0,196) of SAILS OF CHARON challenged HARVESTER OF
PAIN (56-1412) (34-35-4,210) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  Up 14.  ROWARDENN defeated
HARVESTER OF PAIN in a 2 minute Challenge struggle.  This is the cleverness of 
Harvester, you see?  Even when he (she/it) loses, he gets to harvest some pain.
Win/win, as they say.
     SCOOBY DOOM (12-6021) (31-26-1,186) of HOUNDS OF HELL challenged BARBARIAN
KNIGHT (56-2006) (29-17-2,183) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  Down 3.  SCOOBY DOOM
devastated BARBARIAN KNIGHT in a 1 minute uneven Challenge brawl.  This brings up a
point that has bugged me.  If a society has an order or concept of knighthood, can it
be truly barbaric?  Inquiring Minds want to know.
     JOPPA CLUBFIST (12-3748) (32-29-0,192) of HALL OF GIANT challenged SAMURAI (75-
3119) (21-9-1,190) of I AM SAM.  Down 2.  JOPPA CLUBFIST defeated SAMURAI in an
exciting 2 minute Challenge fight.  But it was VERY exciting, which is always good.
The fans like it, and it's the fans who ultimately pay the bills.
     BIONIC BUFFALO (11-6570) (36-23-0,191) of DO IT AGAIN challenged NIGHTCAP (74-
2745) (123-114-0,190) of DARKLINGS.  Down 1.  BIONIC BUFFALO was overpowered by
NIGHTCAP in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge duel.  Given the difference in visible
experience (no telling about tourneys, though I happen to know that Nightcap has
none), this is not a surprise.
     SANGUINE (40-4135) (31-16-1,207) of BLOOD ANGELS challenged CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-
196) (90-126-0,193) of THE DRAGON FIST.  Down 14.  SANGUINE was demolished by CORT
NIGHTJEWEL in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  I know people say that you have
to trust the ranking system, but there ARE other factors.  I hope you learned a lot,
Sanguine.

     And the TV challenge, for which Morlena is to be congratulated.  MORLENA (56-
2163) (23-17-1,190) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS TV challenged SAMARIUM (75-3071) (43-25-
1,225) of I AM SAM.  Up 35.  MORLENA was devastated by SAMARIUM in a 1 minute
mismatched Challenge fight.  Bold, but one expects boldness from a tourney victory.
A good try, Morlena.

     For the title:  SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) (107-146-3,270) of DUPLICATE
REDUNDANCY fought JAMMIES (74-2829) (117-93-1,288) of DARKLINGS.  SUPERIOR FORCES was
overpowered by JAMMIES in a popular 2 minute uneven Title match.  I'd've said they
were evenly matched, more or less.  A couple of mimes in gladiators' clothing.
Still, congratulations to Jammies.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Kookaburra -- Rats.  Taken down by a cookie!  Or maybe a bird who thinks I'm a gum
tree and finds it hilarious.  But either way, NOT what I wanted to experience.  Why
is a gladiator with two hundred plus fights in the same part of the rankings as me?
-- Tall Tree
P.S.  Okay, "same part" as in, sixty-five points higher.  Still.

Heck, and I get a loss to a standby who out-experiences and out-ranks me, which is
almost like losing to Kookaburra.  Drat. -- Stonetooth

Maggie -- Why are you a guy?  That's offensive. -- Black Wolf, having a crotchety day

Comrade Kook -- I see it coming now, an oh-fer turn, which means that, unlike, say, a
1-4 turn, EVERY member of this team will catch heck from Jorja.  You'd think if she
was going to get so worked up about our losses she'd do strat changes or something.
-- Cedar

Bloody Easter Bummy -- Remind me to fall on you at the first opportunity. -- Falling
Rock
