                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Hullo!

     Here it is again, the end of the fortnight.  This is the season of play, is it
not?  When living, as the saying goes, is easy.  Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is
high.  Though around here one might well worry when the fish are jumping, since so
any of them are man-eaters.  In any case, the Black Chalice serves a nice chilled
pina colada.

     What ho!  Elayron has lost the title!  ELAYRON (51-1492) (103-64-0,289) of BLOOD
+ ORANGES fought CRYSOPRASE (1-3266) (132-141-3,227) of ILLFANG PACT.  ELAYRON was
bested by CRYSOPRASE in a crowd pleasing 4 minute Title fight.  I'm sure we all look
forward to a column from Crysoprase next time around, eh?  Anyway, Crysoprase is our
top Parry-Striker.  She's also our Overall Popularity Leader.  I'm not surprised.  It
was a good fight, and everyone is looking forward to a fresh outlook in the Keeper's
column.
     Since there were no challenges, avoids, or deaths (thank goodness, on the last
one), I'll just mention the stylemasters and this turn's favorite and then we can
adjourn for a round of cooling draughts, eh?

     This turn's favorite fighter is Clive.  CLIVE (6-5215) (52-48-5,203) of THE
LADY'S LIST fought LOCAL CONSTABLE (104-22) (0-0-0,181) of THE MIDDLE WAY.  CLIVE was
defeated by LOCAL CONSTABLE in an exciting 3 minute bloody fight.  In other words, he
pinched the constable's helmet and fled, but he was pursued and caught.  I believe
the gendarmes have been working on their sprints.
     Mark is our top-rated Parry-Lunger.  HIKARAN DAAL (1-2070) (90-99-1,192) of
STORM RIDERS fought MARK (5-4088) (64-151-3,206) of JOHNS.  HIKARAN DAAL was
vanquished by MARK in an exciting 2 minute gory uneven battle.  Hikaran Daal is our
top Total Parry.
     Top Lunger this turn is Zakau.  ZAKAU (5-4623) (55-61-0,207) of JOHNS fought
JERI LOUGH (5-4840) (47-66-0,163) of THE MIDDLE WAY 5.  ZAKAU devastated JERI LOUGH
in a crowd pleasing 1 minute mismatched match.
     Our highest-ranked Slasher is Lennon.  TASHI'SINDAR (1-3249) (88-65-3,190) of
STORM RIDERS II fought LENNON (5-4087) (43-41-2,179) of JOHNS.  TASHI'SINDAR was
vanquished by LENNON in a 1 minute mismatched brawl.
     Our top-ranked Wall of Steel this time is Tolais Deepheart.  TOLAIS DEEPHEART
(42-1620) (132-147-0,186) of HIGHLANDERS fought HELENE JUSTE (5-4875) (37-57-1,155)
of THE MIDDLE WAY 5.  TOLAIS DEEPHEART defeated HELENE JUSTE in an action packed 2
minute melee.  I only liked that fight because it was action packed, not because it
was two attractive women.
     Our top (and only Parry-Riposte is still Hikaran Daal.  JAMMY LARKE (5-4926)
(59-42-0,174) of THE MIDDLE WAY 5 fought HOFFA (5-4299) (23-82-0,101) of JOHNS.
JAMMY LARKE overpowered HOFFA in a popular 1 minute uneven match.
     Top Striker is Zane Grey.  ZANE GREY (21-4810) (47-76-2,174) of AUTHORS fought
PELIS THE TRUE (42-3469) (38-54-0,133) of HIGHLANDERS.  ZANE GREY vanquished PELIS
THE TRUE in a popular 1 minute uneven duel.
     Lastly, top Basher is still Men Working.  MEN WORKING (38-4189) (74-238-1,163)
of JUST BECAUSE fought OLD SAILMAKER (104-7) (0-0-0,110) of SEA DOGS.  MEN WORKING
won victory over OLD SAILMAKER in a popular 2 minute duel.

And that, my friends, concludes our pre-libation festivities.  To the bar!
