                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Well, darn.  We've got personals from THREE guildhouses, but no challenges and
no avoids.  I guess we just can't have everything.
     Stump got the most points, up 38.  His winning streak is with him today.
Manipulator had the biggest drop, 36 points.  Same fight.
     No challenges, no avoiding, I said that, didn't I?
     Fourteen fights, and three standbys.

     JULIETTE (81-1630) (26-15-1,86) of SUMMERBORN fought BITTER ALMOND (103-41) (14-
16-4,50) of the College of Mimes.  JULIETTE vanquished BITTER ALMOND in an action
packed 1 minute mismatched bout.  And Almond is really bitter about it, too.
     MOSSROCK (15-4871) (49-64-2,169) of GREENWARDENS fought XHUGHA KARGARIT (103-38)
(32-28-1,130) of the College of Mimes.  MOSSROCK was savagely defeated by XHUGHA
KARGARIT in a 6 minute conflict.  Well, you know, a karragit.  Spelled differently,
but I can tell.  They like moss.  They collect it.
     SAVORY (32-4143) (49-47-1,173) of DEAD WE SUCK fought KING COREY (43-4620) (34-
40-2,150) of LUROCIAN ROYALTY.  SAVORY demolished KING COREY in a 1 minute mismatched
match.  Anti-royalist.  You know the kind.  Fanatic.
     MANIPULATOR (64-3490) (48-94-6,180) of UNDER DURESS fought STUMP (15-4882) (34-
88-0,117) of GREENWARDENS.  MANIPULATOR was overcome by STUMP in a 2 minute contest.
This is just amazing.
     SERGE (32-3549) (52-68-0,197) of ASSORTED fought SEKHAT (7-2251) (55-108-3,169)
of CASTAWAYS.  SERGE was overpowered by SEKHAT in a crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided
match.  And does Serge actually care?  As if!

     S. MARY ROSE (78-2313) (80-87-2,200) of HABIT fought SANDMAN (74-2896) (72-107-
3,180) of DARKLINGS.  S. MARY ROSE was savagely defeated by SANDMAN in an action
packed 5 minute gory match.  After which, she got to take a nap.  That sounds really
good to me.
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (231-135-0,202) of DARKLINGS fought TREEFROG (15-4177) (35-
60-0,166) of GREENWARDENS.  NIGHTCAP overpowered TREEFROG in a popular 1 minute
uneven duel.  Probably another elm tree.
     KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (151-186-5,203) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES fought LORD FIREFLASH
(33-2966) (74-60-1,200) of LUROCIANS II.  KOOKABURRA won victory over LORD FIREFLASH
in an action packed 1 minute duel.  It always surprises me how much action some
people can pack into a minute.  I mean, that isn't even long enough for your nail
polish to dry!
     SMUG BUG (55-2900) (130-204-0,181) of RHYME TYME fought CONTROVERSY (64-3914)
(57-66-1,178) of UNDER DURESS.  SMUG BUG was handily defeated by CONTROVERSY in an
action packed 1 minute uneven fight.  And there was NO controversy about that, except
to wonder why Smug didn't get inducted again this time.

     RED BARON (33-1092) (76-72-3,211) of LUROCIANS II fought ARGUMENT (64-3915) (56-
67-0,206) of UNDER DURESS.  RED BARON was vanquished by ARGUMENT in an exciting 1
minute bloody mismatched fight.  I'm surprised that worked.  I would've thought,
well, something stronger than just arguing, you know?
     FLESH RIPPER (74-3375) (43-25-2,229) of LUROCIANS XI fought ROBIN OF SHEW-WOOD
(103-33) (1-0-1,220) of the College of Mimes.  FLESH RIPPER overpowered ROBIN OF
SHEW-WOOD in a 2 minute bloody mismatched match.  And did Robin like this?  No!
     WOODEN ARROW (15-4619) (43-55-0,211) of GREENWARDENS fought REM (74-2853) (113-
78-0,214) of DARKLINGS.  WOODEN ARROW was overpowered by REM in a crowd pleasing 1
minute gory mismatched duel.  I heard Wooden say he was going off to take a nap, too.
     WHITEBRAID (15-2110) (49-82-1,220) of GREENWARDENS fought SLEEPWALKER (74-2843)
(70-125-1,195) of DARKLINGS.  WHITEBRAID was vanquished by SLEEPWALKER in an exciting
1 minute uneven battle.  And probably another nap!  Everyone's got 'em.  *I* want
one!

For the title:
     MARTIN BLANK (82-28434) (57-16-0,241) of BLOOD TITANS fought REDTHORN (15-4943)
(41-51-0,223) of GREENWARDENS.  MARTIN BLANK bested REDTHORN in a crowd pleasing 4
minute Title fight.  Congratulations and all that.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Serge -- Not that it really matters since you're immortal, old chap, but sorry that I
decided to kill you mid-fight.  I just had a bit of a flashback to some Trolls and
something about a ring, and, well, there it was! -- Bilbo Bagginni

Wooden Arrow -- THAT was embarassing.  I need to pick things up.  Or maybe get myself
a boomstick... -- Gimme Some Sugar

Flesh Ripper -- I have to attribute that loss to rust.  Haven't fought in nearly two
years.  My manager was holding me out in the futile hope that I might drop down a
class, but it just didn't happen.  So I'm back. -- The Lion King

Juliette -- Looks like I've tied our guild's record for wins to start a career.
Thank you, my lady.  Let's see if I can break that record, now... -- Donkey Hotay

Yo, Martin!  Go back to Grosse Point! -- I want the title! -- Noreaster

All right, fighting a stand-in is bad enough.  Getting beaten by one is much worse!
Although Helyse is pretty, as humans are judged.  More fur would have helped her. --
Sekhat

Savory -- That was a pretty unfavorable matchup for you.  And I hope you're feeling
better. -- Sleepwalker

Lord Fireflash -- You fought well.  I... had a bad day.  Congratulations. -- Sandman

Manipulator -- Ouch!  Very bad matchup for you.  Sorry. -- Nightcap

Controversy -- Um, I think you need to use a different weapon and come out faster. --
Rem

Absolution -- You got me when I was really annoyed.  Jorja KNOWS I need to start
training stats, and she keeps putting it OFF.  I was glad to have someone to HIT. --
Whitebraid

Gimme Some Sugar -- No!  It's BAD for you. -- Wooden Arrow

Tia Matte -- You rolled me right over and peeled off the moss.  It's too cold to go
without moss! -- Mossrock

Segue -- Good try, but I had my tree with me.  Makes all the difference if you have
your *own* tree, you know.  Random trees are better than no trees at all, but... eh.
Some of them are elms.  Beh. -- Treefrog

Headless Norseman -- That was weird.  I was all set to hit you, and I couldn't seem
to find an appropriate place.  Not that I *wanted* to hit you on the head, but with
no head, I just couldn't seem to get the rest of you into focus. -- Stump

Gary M. Reaper -- Ah, that one went very well!  It makes my week. -- Redthorn
P.S.  It even makes my solstice!

Rem -- No, what I need to work on is retiring.  It could take YEARS to persuade
Jorja, so the sooner I start, the better. -- Redthorn

Sleepwalker -- You could avoid me. -- Stump
