                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     We had a GOOD day, despite the fact that it was cloudy and windy and darned
cold.  Maybe that's more than one fact.  Well, anyway.  Besides, the clouds mostly
blew away in the afternoon.  Of course, that made it colder, but what the heck.

So here's some stuff to think about, if you like to think about this stuff:
     Barbarian Knight of Disposable Heroes (not the other one) probably got the most
points advancement, 46.
     Knights of Rocanis were avoided more than any other team, and Do It Again
avoided them most.
     Nightcap got the most challenges.
     We had thirty-three fights with four standbys, which is like thirty-one fights
with none.  Fifteen were challenges, two tv and the rest radio.

     BELA LUGOSI (40-4114) (15-6-1,52) of MEN OF 1,000 FACES fought ROSELLA (103-39)
(26-25-0,100) of the College of Mimes.  BELA LUGOSI handily defeated ROSELLA in an
exciting 1 minute one-sided fight.  Rosella got excited when Bela changed faces in
mid-fight and dropped her initiative.  You know how easy it is to lose an initiative
in the sand.
     WONDER BUBBLE (56-3522) (16-11-2,47) of INCONSISTENT FURY fought THE GREEK GUY
(47-5478) (11-4-0,37) of I HATE THEM.  WONDER BUBBLE was demolished by THE GREEK GUY
in an exciting 1 minute mismatched match.  Still, at least you got to lose to
somebody else, Wonder.  That's got to be a change, right?
     CENTURION (56-4024) (19-4-0,56) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS fought THE WITCH-KING (15-
4029) (20-13-0,83) of THE BLACK RIDERS.  CENTURION was demolished by THE WITCH-KING
in a popular 1 minute uneven contest.  I've heard about this Witch-King person.  He
does this.  You need to send a woman gladiator against him.

     MARTIN BLANK (82-28434) (13-2-0,41) of BEING JOHN CUSAK fought ROSELLA (103-39)
(26-25-0,100) of the College of Mimes.  MARTIN BLANK overpowered ROSELLA in a 2
minute uneven bout.  Wow, Rosella must've been, you know, off her game.  Because of
fighting before.  Or maybe Martin is just really good.  Sometimes you can't tell.  I
mean, almost anybody can graduate these days!
     BLACK WOLF (29-4194) (40-37-1,119) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought NAKHA ADIASO (56-
2615) (22-22-0,93) of INCONSISTENT FURY.  BLACK WOLF demolished NAKHA ADIASO in an
exciting 1 minute one-sided fight.  Wow, you feed a wolf some blood, and there's no
holding him back.
     FLAMING FLEA (70-499) (24-25-2,136) of MIDNIGHT HOUR fought STONETOOTH (29-4560)
(31-45-0,105) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  FLAMING FLEA handily defeated STONETOOTH in a 1 
minute one-sided fight.  And why not?  Would YOU like to be confronted by a flaming
flea?  Scary or something.
     POINT (56-633) (33-46-1,171) of INCONSISTENT FURY fought JEO THE SONGSMITH (1-
3260) (39-76-0,106) of BLUE EYRIE.  POINT savagely defeated JEO THE SONGSMITH in a
popular 2 minute gruesome fight.  Do you suppose this is "wings" thing again?  I
mean, if he's going to wear them into the arena, he should put armor on them, right?
     SAM (70-466) (20-17-0,171) of CHEERS fought NYZEIL OGLATA (17-6753) (25-14-
1,150) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  SAM overpowered NYZEIL OGLATA in a 2 minute uneven
competition.  This is probably because Sam doesn't have a cough.  I'm sorry Nyzeil,
but your identity as a cough syrup is, you know, blown.  Or coughed.

     BARBARIAN KNIGHT (70-565) (20-18-0,155) of DISPOSABLE HEROES fought DREHVIN
(103-34) (75-45-7,200) of the College of Mimes.  BARBARIAN KNIGHT overcame DREHVIN in
an action packed 2 minute bout.  This is the guy that got all those points, right?
Barbarian, not Drehvin.
     RAORK ROKIOS (70-1526) (28-16-0,192) of ORKOGRE CASTLE fought ROBIN OF SHEW-WOOD
(103-33) (1-0-1,220) of the College of Mimes.  RAORK ROKIOS demolished ROBIN OF SHEW-
WOOD in a 2 minute gruesome one-sided melee.  I've heard that Robin is actually made
out of some kind of wood, and instead of blood you get sap when you cut him.  Can you
confirm this, Raork?
     CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-196) (104-135-0,206) of THE DRAGON FIST fought MOTHER MARY
(70-691) (44-35-3,201) of SPREAD THE DISEASE.  CORT NIGHTJEWEL was overpowered by
MOTHER MARY in a 2 minute gory one-sided duel.  Good.  Well, maybe not.  Maybe if he
gets more wins, Cort will be Inducted to Primus.  You never know with guys like him.
     BIONIC BUFFALO (11-6570) (44-38-0,196) of DO IT AGAIN fought SEKHAT (7-2251)
(26-31-1,163) of CASTAWAYS.  BIONIC BUFFALO slimly lost to SEKHAT in a 2 minute
match.  Somehow I never thought of a buffalo as "slim."  Maybe it's the bionic part
that does it.
     SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) (111-165-3,197) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY fought
ENLIGHTENED BEING (26-4642) (30-13-0,207) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  SUPERIOR FORCES
demolished ENLIGHTENED BEING in a 2 minute one-sided fight.  That's life for you.
Try to be enlightened, and somebody comes along with a maul and smashes you flat.

     DREAM WEAVER (56-1959) (29-20-1,205) of INCONSISTENT FURY fought KOOKABURRA (33-
4151) (98-133-4,200) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.  DREAM WEAVER vanquished KOOKABURRA in a
popular 1 minute mismatched fray.  I think the Cookie is getting stale.  I mean,
there were crumbs everywhere, you know?  And even the crumbs are stale.
     CLAUDIUS (13-2860) (63-47-2,217) of I, CLAUDIUS fought SMUG BUG (55-2900) (79-
149-0,198) of RHYME TYME.  CLAUDIUS demolished SMUG BUG in a 1 minute uneven bout.
This is good.  Squash the bugs.  They might be Japanese beetles, after all.
     NECROMANCER (48-1041) (38-20-2,237) of NIGHT'S GUARDIANS fought JUDGE (56-119)
(57-39-2,208) of INCONSISTENT FURY.  NECROMANCER devastated JUDGE in an action packed
2 minute one-sided bout.  I heard somebody around here is making, like, a movie up in
Kurukar called Night of the Necromancer.  Maybe you can get a part.
     JULIUS (64-3641) (142-132-3,238) of UNDER DURESS fought MILLHOUSE (55-1324) (31-
33-0,221) of THE SIMPSONS.  JULIUS overpowered MILLHOUSE in a crowd pleasing 1 minute
mismatched fight.  Nothing like getting crushed by ossified gladiators, or maybe I
mean fossilized, but you know what I mean anyway, don't you?
     WRATH OF ONE (82-11628) (30-24-2,211) of LUROCIANS XII fought BARBARIAN KNIGHT
(56-2006) (37-32-2,186) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  WRATH OF ONE savagely defeated
BARBARIAN KNIGHT in an exciting 2 minute brutal match.  This is the OTHER Barbarian
Knight.  It's confusing, although not as confusing as when we had two
Nebuchadnezzars.

Oh, here we are at the challenges already!  Great.
     CORNELIUS (31-3485) (19-3-1,78) of CAESAR'S POOL HALL challenged FALLING ROCK
(29-4286) (24-44-0,60) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 18.  CORNELIUS was devastated by
FALLING ROCK in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  Oops, that "rocks on the
head" business hurts, I bet.
     PREATORIAN (56-4005) (22-13-1,73) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS challenged CEDAR (29-
4319) (25-27-2,97) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 24.  PREATORIAN viciously subdued CEDAR in
an action packed 2 minute brutal Challenge duel.  So much for Cedar getting a winning
record off Wonder Bubble.
     ALDALDON (56-3913) (23-12-1,124) of PHILANTHROPISTS challenged MANDORALLEN (56-
2288) (32-18-1,142) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  ALDALDON was defeated by MANDORALLEN in a
popular 2 minute Challenge duel.  A home-town match, is there a story behind this?
     JADRA (61-3379) (21-10-1,148) of PHILANTHROPISTS challenged THE QUICKLING (70-
1669) (84-195-2,150) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  Up 2.  JADRA demolished THE QUICKLING in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided Challenge brawl.  You'd think with nearly three
hundred regular fights Quickling would be tougher, wouldn't you?
     ARTEMIDORUS (17-6864) (33-7-1,138) of FIELDS OF ELYSIUM challenged TALL TREE
(29-4380) (25-57-0,113) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 25.  ARTEMIDORUS overcame TALL TREE
in an exciting 1 minute Challenge contest.  Seems like some gladiators are just BORN
to lose.

     MAGGIE (55-637) (41-53-1,174) of THE SIMPSONS challenged MALT-O-MEAL (60-7527)
(44-24-1,198) of CHILDHOOD TRAUMA.  Up 24.  MAGGIE was defeated by MALT-O-MEAL in an
exciting 3 minute bloody Challenge match.  Listen, Malt-O-Meal isn't for kids!
     CATASTROPHE (71-6273) (13-3-0,171) of THE BROTHERHOOD 98 challenged DAGA TERS
(56-2627) (22-12-1,125) of INCONSISTENT FURY.  Down 46, I think.  CATASTROPHE
overpowered DAGA TERS in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Not all that much of
a surprise, really.  Catastrophes sweep everything away, right?
     GIMME SOME SUGAR (19-4936) (22-6-0,190) of ARMY OF DARKNESS challenged AIN
GOBLINBANE (70-678) (45-24-1,192) of ECCENTRIC DWARVES.  Up 2.  GIMME SOME SUGAR was
vanquished by AIN GOBLINBANE in a 2 minute Challenge duel.  Oooo!  Does this mean
Gimme is a goblin?  Or just, you know, not up for this one.
     CITY MILITIA (56-2200) (29-27-0,209) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS challenged COMRADE
KOOK (12-6339) (38-40-2,210) of CULTS-R-US.  Up 1.  CITY MILITIA overpowered COMRADE
KOOK in a 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.  It's the whole "standing on the street
corner shouting" thing.  City militias don't like it.
     DREAM WARRIOR (48-1040) (54-19-1,199) of NIGHT'S GUARDIANS challenged NATAS (11-
6531) (29-15-0,212) of DO IT AGAIN.  Up 13.  DREAM WARRIOR devastated NATAS in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge match.  And are you going to do it again?  I mean, this
practically asks for it.

     DEFIANCE (32-4619) (27-4-1,210) of ANGELS OF PAIN challenged DESERT GYPSY (56-
2105) (29-13-3,201) of INCONSISTENT FURY.  Down 9.  DEFIANCE devastated DESERT GYPSY
in a 2 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  I figure it's the snow.
     RETRIBUTION (74-2982) (33-23-1,211) of BROTHERHOOD challenged MORLENA (56-2163)
(32-31-1,244) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  Up 33.  RETRIBUTION was overpowered by MORLENA
in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge match.  I think this means... Morlena didn't do
it?  Whatever you were retributing.
     DARK JUSTICE (56-2004) (33-37-0,217) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS challenged SISTER X
(12-6340) (35-42-0,218) of CULTS-R-US.  Up 1.  DARK JUSTICE was vanquished by SISTER
X in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  I think there's a message in here, but
don't ask me what it is.  Inner meanings aren't my thing, you know?  Totally
albendranious.

TV challenge:
     SAMURAI (75-3119) (36-17-1,272) of I AM SAM TV challenged MELKOR (13-1821) (44-
18-0,229) of SILMARILLIAD.  Down 43.  SAMURAI savagely defeated MELKOR in an exciting
5 minute gory Challenge melee.  Is this more "paying your dues" that Olaf or somebody
keeps talking about?

For the title:
     NEBUCHADNEZZAR (22-5821) (88-54-0,419) of BLADES OF WONDER TV challenged
NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (140-120-0,258) of DARKLINGS.  Down 161?  Something like that, but
it's from the Lord Marshall.  NEBUCHADNEZZAR devastated NIGHTCAP in a 1 minute
mismatched Challenge Title fight.  I think this is probably good.  Anyway, it's done.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Nebuchadnezzar -- Tremendous damage take, full armor, and I still got one-shotted.
That's kind of scary, you know that? -- Dream

     Well, that's the arena for you.  You just never know what might happen.

Mother Mary -- Wow, what a rough matchup for you.  Although I must say, your style
scared me a little bit. -- Nightcap

Cort Nightjewel -- My manager says it's rare for anyone on her teams to fight someone
far more experienced.  So I guess that was an honor.  Certainly I learned more than
usual. -- Sekhat
P.S.  Change your train.

     They never do.

Black Wolf -- You fight without grace, and that apparent victory was invalid.  Blows
to the wings should be against the rules. -- Jeo the Songsmith

     Then don't bring the wings into the arena.

Aldaldon -- Skills are good. -- Tall Tree

Cornelius -- That's the first time I've seen a guy play pool with a cue in each hand.
Amazing. -- Falling Rock

Preatorian -- Always good to keep the lip buttoned, no telling what might fall out if
you didn't, eh? -- Stonetooth

Jeo the Songsmith -- You little guys think you have an edge, don't you? -- Black Wolf

Wonder Bubble -- Still odd looking, but I don't mind the win!  Thanks. -- Cedar
