                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Oh, hi.  It's just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out FREE BLADES to
see what's new.  Which is, not much, you know?  But that's okay, I like you anyway.
MVP award for LORD FIREFLASH?  LUROCIANS II's proud of him after beating NIGHTCAP and
getting 57 points, AND Lord Marshallhood.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SAVORY
got smashed by KOOKABURRA, and lost 15 points!  What a putz!  WILD THANG! fights so
hard to be Lady Marshall, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said she
was a genius...  Okay, maybe she was busy.  That happens, especially with the tourney
and all.  Was that a tear I saw in LORD FIREFLASH's eye, as he took over the Lord
Marshallhood?  No, I didn't think so, either, but it, like, sounded good.  And wasn't
NIGHTCAP fit to be tied!  Nope, he didn't want the title, then he'd have to write a
column.  Is the Lord Marshall really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask
me!  I don't carry stories like that.
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  DARKLINGS was the most avoided
team.  Is a 327-131-1 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why
DEVIL ADVOCATES' been avoiding DARKLINGS so much?  Or is it just that they're too
scared?  Can GREENWARDENS' WOODEN ARROW be more popular than me?  He was challenged
the most, but is that really the same?  And he was challenged the most last time,
too!
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Well, maybe not right
here, but still.  Don't you guys ever give it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that
all you guys can do?
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand
wash.  But if it's one of those fancy Adantri things, send it out to a professional
to be cleaned.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Twenty fights, five challenges, three standbys.

     DONKEY HOTAY (19-5187) (17-0-1,52) of MAN OR BEAST? fought LUCIFREYJA (103-40)
(19-21-1,90) of the College of Mimes.  DONKEY HOTAY viciously subdued LUCIFREYJA in a
popular 4 minute gruesome bout.  He said something about windmills afterward.  I
didn't get that.
     LOATHING (97-4003) (14-2-4,100) of SPAWN OF DARKNESS fought BITTER ALMOND (103-
41) (14-16-4,50) of the College of Mimes.  LOATHING overpowered BITTER ALMOND in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided match.  You can see why Almond's bitter.
     HEADLESS NORSEMAN (33-7758) (17-6-0,99) of HALLOWIENERS fought JULIETTE (81-
1630) (25-13-1,89) of SUMMERBORN.  HEADLESS NORSEMAN was beaten by JULIETTE in an
exciting 1 minute match.  He just couldn't, like, keep his head during the fight.
     REPUGNANT (97-3677) (22-14-4,145) of SONS OF SATAN fought XHUGHA KARGARIT (103-
38) (32-28-1,130) of the College of Mimes.  REPUGNANT devastated XHUGHA KARGARIT in a
1 minute one-sided brawl.  I would've, too!

     ABSOLUTION (32-5301) (25-6-2,170) of ANGELS OF PAIN fought KING COREY (43-4620)
(33-38-2,134) of LUROCIAN ROYALTY.  ABSOLUTION handily defeated KING COREY in a 1
minute mismatched bout.  So was losing the fight penance?
     SLEEPWALKER (74-2843) (67-125-1,163) of DARKLINGS fought STUMP (15-4882) (34-85-
0,110) of GREENWARDENS.  SLEEPWALKER bested STUMP in a 2 minute duel.  Two of a kind,
these guys.  They lose a lot.  They're, like, really good at it.
     WHITEBRAID (15-2110) (47-81-1,195) of GREENWARDENS fought CONTROVERSY (64-3914)
(56-64-1,175) of UNDER DURESS.  WHITEBRAID handily defeated CONTROVERSY in a popular
1 minute uneven fight.  Whitebraid said, "My way or the highway," and Controversy did
it his way, but I don't think it'll last.
     SANDMAN (74-2896) (71-105-3,188) of DARKLINGS fought S. MARY ROSE (78-2313) (78-
86-2,182) of HABIT.  SANDMAN was devastated by S. MARY ROSE in a 1 minute mismatched
bout.  It's this habit she's got.  Winning.
     REM (74-2853) (110-78-0,193) of DARKLINGS fought SEGUE (13-5394) (22-9-0,152) of
THE DEVIL'S OWN.  REM handily defeated SEGUE in an exciting 1 minute one-sided
contest. Plenty of caffeine before the fight.

     SMUG BUG (55-2900) (130-201-0,197) of RHYME TYME fought FLESH RIPPER (74-3375)
(40-25-2,196) of LUROCIANS XI.  SMUG BUG was demolished by FLESH RIPPER in a 1 minute
mismatched match.  Good!  I get so tired of that Bug.  Maybe it'll get Inducted.
     RED BARON (33-1092) (74-71-3,207) of LUROCIANS II fought BITCHIN' BEAST (33-
5228) (20-12-0,207) of DIVINE HERITAGE.  RED BARON was savagely defeated by BITCHIN'
BEAST in a popular 2 minute gory melee.  That upset some bookies!  Upset is good for
them.
     SERGE (32-3549) (52-65-0,185) of ASSORTED fought MARTIN BLANK (82-28434) (54-16-
0,208) of BLOOD TITANS.  SERGE was vanquished by MARTIN BLANK in a 2 minute one-sided
fight.  Just blanked him out.  It was weird.
     SAVORY (32-4143) (48-45-1,201) of DEAD WE SUCK fought KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (149-
185-5,193) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.  SAVORY was vanquished by KOOKABURRA in a 1 minute
uneven fight.  Another one who could be Inducted any time and I wouldn't mind.  I
mean, three hundred fights should be some kind of limit, you know?
     SEKHAT (7-2251) (54-106-3,181) of CASTAWAYS fought THRASHER MALONE (72-4847)
(27-24-0,170) of TOURNEY TEAM.  SEKHAT won victory over THRASHER MALONE in an action
packed 4 minute duel.  And after the fight, Sekhat was searching his armor looking
for feathers.  Thought Malone was a bird, I guess.

The challenges:
     TIA MATTE (32-5321) (26-15-0,158) of DEVIL ADVOCATES challenged TREEFROG (15-
4177) (34-58-0,153) of GREENWARDENS.  Down 5.  TIA MATTE devastated TREEFROG in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  Well, that's kind of too bad.  I
mean, winning fights is what you're all here for, I know that--the clerks remind me
every time I come in.  But Treefrog is kind of cute now that he's got his morphic
field straightened out.  Hard to find frog-shaped armor, though.
     GIMME SOME SUGAR (19-4936) (70-50-0,195) of ARMY OF DARKNESS challenged MOSSROCK
(15-4871) (49-61-2,198) of GREENWARDENS.  Up 3.  GIMME SOME SUGAR devastated MOSSROCK
in an exciting 2 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  I didn't know sugar would do THAT
to moss.  It's gross!
     GARY M. REAPER (32-2502) (84-50-1,188) of DEVIL ADVOCATES challenged REDTHORN
(15-4943) (40-49-0,185) of GREENWARDENS.  Down 3.  GARY M. REAPER demolished REDTHORN
in a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  Oh, well.
     BILBO BAGGINNI (9-5508) (55-27-0,223) of MIDDLE ITALY challenged ARGUMENT (64-
3915) (54-66-0,220) of UNDER DURESS.  Down 3.  BILBO BAGGINNI lost to ARGUMENT in an
action packed 1 minute Challenge battle.  It was, like, a totally albendranious
argument.
     NOREASTER (35-3896) (53-29-1,235) of DIRT DEVILS challenged WOODEN ARROW (15-
4619) (42-53-0,228) of GREENWARDENS.  Down 7.  NOREASTER devastated WOODEN ARROW in a
1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Just, like, blew him away.  That's what the
clerk wrote here on the notes.

For the title:
     LORD FIREFLASH (33-2966) (72-59-1,241) of LUROCIANS II fought NIGHTCAP (74-2745)
(229-134-0,193) of DARKLINGS.  LORD FIREFLASH overpowered NIGHTCAP in a popular 1
minute mismatched Title brawl.  And maybe Nightcap will get Inducted, too.  That
would almost be too bad, because if he was Lord Marshall, he'd write a column.  Of
course, he'd complain about it a lot, so maybe it's better we have Fireflash.  At
least he's warm!

Wild Thang! -- Wow.  Honestly, I didn't think you could do that.  Way to steal the
initiative and hang onto it.  I doff my hat to you, lady. -- Nightcap
P.S.  How about a column?  It's not hard.  Just a paragraph or two.

Lord Fireflash -- Ow.  I don't fight so well when I'm lying on the ground.  Note to
self:  stay on feet.  Anyway, well done. -- Rem

Savory -- I just hate your style.  Nothing personal. -- Sekhat

Kookaburra -- Get a gender! -- Sleepwalker (male)

Mossrock -- And our fight concluded a 0-5 turn for my guild.  Thought I was winning,
though, until the final minute.  Good fight. -- Sandman

What if I didn't WANT the most challenges? -- Wooden Arrow

Gary M. Reaper -- That was a strange experience, and one I'd like to repeat often.
Probably won't happen, though. -- Wooden Arrow

Tia Matte -- I'm probably not quite as bad as my record suggests. -- Redthorn

Absolution -- Don't listen to that... that MAMMAL.  My winning streak is fine.  I
just left it home today, so it could rest rest. -- Treefrog

Biblo Bagginni -- It's okay, I don't really like pasta. -- Whitebraid

Sandman -- You should be ashamed of yourself, losing that!  Not that *I* mind. --
Mossrock

Repugnant -- Debby doesn't seem to understand, but YOU might.  About the winning
streak.  Sure, I'm not working on it today.  Sometimes we need a rest, me and the
winning streak both. -- Stump
