                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, okay, okay, I'm HERE, okay?  I'm doing the SPY REPORT, okay?  SOME PEOPLE
are NEVER SATISFIED.

     Most points up, Nyzeil Oglata, 39.  Most points down, Savory, 33.
     Most avoided (if anyone was), Darklings.  Most avoiding them, Devil Advocates.
     Most challenged, Mossrock.
     Twenty-two fights, nine challenges, one standby.
     Very few personals, no column.

     ERTL WISESTAFF (84-7570) (17-9-1,132) of PHILANTHROPISTS17 fought PAM DEMONIUM
(32-5551) (19-4-1,100) of DEVIL ADVOCATES.  ERTL WISESTAFF savagely defeated PAM
DEMONIUM in a popular 3 minute gory match.  "Sawagely"?  That's what it looks like to
ME, and I did NOT have lots and lots to drink last night, hardly anything, and it had
an umbrella in it.  And fruit.
     SAVORY (32-4143) (53-50-1,144) of DEAD WE SUCK fought JERK O'LANTERN (33-7742)
(19-3-0,91) of HALLOWIENERS.  SAVORY was vanquished by JERK O'LANTERN in a 1 minute
mismatched fray.  Biggest drop.  Like, you know, "a basher in the top ten."
     MOZART (35-3756) (18-7-1,166) of PHILANTHROPISTS 3 fought LOATHING (97-4003)
(17-8-4,128) of SPAWN OF DARKNESS.  MOZART vanquished LOATHING in an action packed 1
minute one-sided match.  Cool!  But that doesn't always work.  Sometimes NOTHING will
wanquish loathing.  Well, except a quick dagger between the ribs.
     CONTROVERSY (64-3914) (59-71-1,180) of UNDER DURESS fought COREY THE MOOSE (84-
19615) (20-4-0,104) of DRAFT DODGERS.  CONTROVERSY bested COREY THE MOOSE in a
popular 2 minute bout.  The whole, you know, idea of dodging drafts, why should it be
controwersial?  I had a horrid draft blow down the back of my neck three days ago,
and I dodged it like anything.

     SLEEPWALKER (74-2843) (72-130-1,188) of DARKLINGS fought TREEFROG (15-4177) (37-
65-0,192) of GREENWARDENS.  SLEEPWALKER was defeated by TREEFROG in a crowd pleasing
1 minute conflict.  Well, of course.  Sleepy, like, walked right into the tree.
     ARGUMENT (64-3915) (60-70-0,193) of UNDER DURESS fought MAKADOS (29-4704) (27-
15-0,160) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  ARGUMENT savagely defeated MAKADOS in an exciting 2
minute brutal bout.  Some people just don't do arguments well.  especially sawage
ones.
     WOODEN ARROW (15-4619) (43-62-0,186) of GREENWARDENS fought S. MARY ROSE (78-
2313) (84-90-2,191) of HABIT.  WOODEN ARROW was devastated by S. MARY ROSE in an
exciting 1 minute one-sided brawl.  Do you think this will help Arrow get back to
being an old pud?
     SMUG BUG (55-2900) (133-208-0,198) of RHYME TYME fought ROBIN OF SHEW-WOOD (103-
33) (1-0-1,220) of the College of Mimes.  SMUG BUG was unbelievably bested by ROBIN
OF SHEW-WOOD in an exciting 2 minute fray.  GOOD!  Robin STEPPED on that Bug.

     REDTHORN (15-4943) (43-56-0,203) of GREENWARDENS fought FLESH RIPPER (74-3375)
(46-29-2,171) of LUROCIANS XI.  REDTHORN lost to FLESH RIPPER in a crowd pleasing 1
minute bout.  So what good does it do to be maxed, then?
     KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (155-189-5,190) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES fought NIGHTCAP (74-
2745) (237-136-0,205) of DARKLINGS.  KOOKABURRA was overpowered by NIGHTCAP in a
popular 1 minute mismatched conflict.  Oh, I guess nobody ewer tried dunking a Girl
Scout Cookie in, you know, something strong.
     RED BARON (33-1092) (80-75-3,218) of LUROCIANS II fought PATIENCE (35-2005) (35-
28-1,205) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  RED BARON devastated PATIENCE in a crowd pleasing 1
minute one-sided battle.  Didn't need patience at all.
     MARTIN BLANK (82-28434) (62-18-0,233) of BLOOD TITANS fought NYZEIL OGLATA (17-
6753) (43-31-1,182) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  MARTIN BLANK was subdued by NYZEIL OGLATA in
a crowd pleasing 2 minute competition.  Martin made a sound like, you know, a smashed
melon, and Nyzeil got the most points rising.
     GIMME SOME SUGAR (19-4936) (76-53-0,243) of ARMY OF DARKNESS fought LORD
FIREFLASH (33-2966) (77-64-1,206) of LUROCIANS II.  GIMME SOME SUGAR was overpowered
by LORD FIREFLASH in a 2 minute one-sided melee.  Okay.  Sugar burns.  I knew that.

The challenges:
     DONKEY HOTAY (19-5187) (24-2-1,148) of MAN OR BEAST? challenged MANIPULATOR (64-
3490) (49-100-6,131) of UNDER DURESS.  Down 17 or so.  I mean, math, who really cares
that much?  DONKEY HOTAY was vanquished by MANIPULATOR in a 1 minute one-sided
Challenge duel.
     HEADLESS NORSEMAN (33-7758) (22-10-0,146) of HALLOWIENERS challenged STUMP (15-
4882) (35-94-0,128) of GREENWARDENS.  Down 18.  HEADLESS NORSEMAN vanquished STUMP in
a 1 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  I guess you don't need a head for that.  Maybe
they were both headless.
     TIA MATTE (32-5321) (32-18-0,176) of DEVIL ADVOCATES challenged MOSSROCK (15-
4871) (51-69-2,156) of GREENWARDENS.  Down 20.  TIA MATTE overpowered MOSSROCK in an
action packed 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.  Most challenged, remember?  Probably
a double-challenge.  Or maybe just, like, some bored clerk deciding to mark that
down.
     SEGUE (13-5394) (27-13-0,206) of THE DEVIL'S OWN challenged SERGE (32-3549) (55-
72-0,211) of ASSORTED.  Up 5.  Wow, first up!  SEGUE overpowered SERGE in a 1 minute
mismatched Challenge brawl.  Do you suppose Serge serges?  You get a special kind of
sewing machine for that, you know.

     ABSOLUTION (32-5301) (31-9-3,198) of ANGELS OF PAIN challenged WHITEBRAID (15-
2110) (50-88-1,203) of GREENWARDENS.  Up 5.  ABSOLUTION was devastated by WHITEBRAID
in a 1 minute bloody one-sided Challenge duel.  The bookies are upset about this.
Serwes 'em right!
     REPUGNANT (97-3677) (27-18-4,187) of SONS OF SATAN challenged SEKHAT (7-2251)
(58-112-3,182) of CASTAWAYS.  Down 5.  REPUGNANT overpowered SEKHAT in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Sometimes Sekhat IS repugnant.
     THE LION KING (35-4124) (16-5-0,200) of IN THE JUNGLE challenged SANDMAN (74-
2896) (75-111-3,197) of DARKLINGS.  Down 3.  THE LION KING was overpowered by SANDMAN
in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge duel.  Lions don't like sand?  I didn't know that.
     NOREASTER (35-3896) (61-30-2,221) of DIRT DEVILS challenged REM (74-2853) (119-
79-0,235) of DARKLINGS.  Up 14.  NOREASTER was viciously subdued by REM in an action
packed 2 minute Challenge battle.  Bit of a surprise there, huh?

For the title:
     BILBO BAGGINNI (9-5508) (63-28-1,361) of MIDDLE ITALY challenged DRIZZT (40-
4146) (45-48-0,292) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Down lots, but it was from the top.  What
else was there?  BILBO BAGGINNI slimly won victory over DRIZZT in a 2 minute
Challenge Title fight.  Congratulations to Bilbo.  Tell us about your faworite meal!

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Gimme Some Sugar -- You're not at all scummy.  Well fought. -- Sandman

Bilbo Bagginni -- Aha!  Good challenge, good win!  Thank you for taking the title.
Not that it isn't an honor.  But I'd been feeling that I'd had more than my share,
you know. -- Nightcap

The Lion King -- Oops, that was a pretty terrible matchup, wasn't it?  Although you
were actually ranked a point above me.  Anyway... you seemed unprepared.  I think
you've got to be mentally ready for bad matches once in a while. -- Rem

Redthorn -- Remind your manager to change your train, my friend. -- Sekhat

     Don't hold, like, your breath, you know?

Lord Fireflash -- That was to be expected, I think.  I like the way your armor
sparkles.  It kind of hypnotized me. -- Sleepwalker

Greenwardens -- Spring is almost here.  Honest! -- Rem

I'm going to have to give up this "winning streak" business.  I'm no longer Home-
Guard-eligible!  I'm... ordinary!  Can't have that. -- Wooden Arrow

Three of us got challenged and lost.  Good.  I want to thank Absolution, who is
helping me with my goal of becoming an annoyingly ancient fossil of a gladiator.
Plus, three of us not challenged, and two lost.  The winner was Redthorn, of course.
He can't help it, he's maxed, poor fellow.  He isn't Home-Guard-eligible any longer,
either. -- Wooden Arrow
