                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

What ho!

     It's that time again, and here I am with your Darkholm spy report.  Why do they
call it a spy report?  I don't spy on people.  Anyway... there were fifteen fights,
ten of them involving stand-in fighters.  Which means that altogether, twenty
gladiators participated.  Only one, 2 + 2 = 4, made both the popular and unpopular
lists.  One person died.  Terrible, but not as terrible as it would be if they
couldn't come back.  I'm going to do the usual thing when we have such low
attendance, and mention every fight.

     MARK (5-4088) (68-153-3,231) of JOHNS fought PELIS THE TRUE (42-3469) (42-56-
0,187) of HIGHLANDERS.  MARK devastated PELIS THE TRUE in a 1 minute mismatched Title
fight.  This means that Mark is still our Keeper of the Runeblade and highest-ranked
Parry-Lunger.

     Here's the fight in which somebody died.  CLIVE (6-5215) (54-52-5,185) of THE
LADY'S LIST fought SOLACIA (104-24) (68-32-0,225) of  .  CLIVE was easily killed by
SOLACIA in an action packed 1 minute uneven fight.

     ZAKAU (5-4623) (59-63-0,227) of JOHNS fought SHEWISH GIANT (104-25) (0-0-0,181)
of  .  ZAKAU viciously subdued SHEWISH GIANT in an action packed 2 minute brutal
battle.  Well done!  The Shew is no pushover.  But then, Zakau is our top Lunger.
     CRYSOPRASE (1-3266) (137-142-3,196) of ILLFANG PACT fought GAR & BRILL (38-4252)
(91-163-1,172) of JUST BECAUSE.  CRYSOPRASE overpowered GAR & BRILL in a 2 minute
bloody mismatched duel.  Crysoprase is our top-ranked Parry-Striker, Overall
Popularity Leader, and our main hope for a column in the foreseeable future.
     MIKEL (6-6190) (44-44-3,194) of THE LADY'S LIST fought SOLACIA (104-24) (68-32-
0,225) of  .  MIKEL was overpowered by SOLACIA in a crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided
fight.  Ah, that demoness has brought down many a good man, though Mikel remains our
highest-rated Slasher.
     FATALITY (7-5820) (30-15-0,190) of BRUTAL LEGION fought LENNON (5-4087) (46-44-
2,164) of JOHNS.  FATALITY devastated LENNON in a 1 minute one-sided duel.  Fatality
is our top Striker, while Lennon was voted this turn's least popular fighter.
     TOLAIS DEEPHEART (42-1620) (136-149-0,181) of HIGHLANDERS fought MEN WORKING
(38-4189) (77-241-1,152) of JUST BECAUSE.  TOLAIS DEEPHEART was bested by MEN WORKING
in a crowd pleasing 3 minute match.  Ms. Deepheart, though still our top Wall of
Steel, seems to have been in a slump lately.  Men Working was voted this turn's most
popular.
     ZANE GREY (21-4810) (49-80-2,153) of AUTHORS fought BLIND BEGGAR (104-26) (40-
35-0,200) of  .  ZANE GREY was vanquished by BLIND BEGGAR in a popular 1 minute
uneven duel.  Bit of an embarrassment, that.

     SATCHEL (6-6215) (50-44-2,151) of THE LADY'S LIST fought SHEWISH GIANT (104-25)
(0-0-0,181) of  .  SATCHEL viciously subdued SHEWISH GIANT in a popular 1 minute gory
duel.  Although this was the Shew's second fight of the day, he was still in good
form, eh?
     JUSTIN (6-6179) (36-55-3,166) of THE LADY'S LIST fought CAPTURED CUTPURSE (104-
6) (0-0-0,130) of  .  JUSTIN overpowered CAPTURED CUTPURSE in a 1 minute one-sided
melee.  At last!  The stand-ins were having rather a good day, and I was getting
worried for our chaps.
     2 + 2 = 4 (38-4190) (57-161-1,113) of JUST BECAUSE fought ZEUS (62-4010) (34-13-
0,121) of LEGION OF LEGEND.  2 + 2 = 4 was overpowered by ZEUS in a 5 minute one-
sided match.  2 + is our top-ranked Total Parry, as well as being the only man
(entity?) to be named on both lists.
     HOFFA (5-4299) (23-88-0,100) of JOHNS fought PHILTHRY (42-2079) (36-38-0,68) of
HIGHLANDERS.  HOFFA viciously subdued PHILTHRY in a crowd pleasing 2 minute brutal
conflict.
     HOFFA (5-4348) (24-152-0,88) of JOHNS fought INKEEPER'S SON (104-4) (15-15-0,40)
of  .  HOFFA was subdued by INKEEPER'S SON in a popular 6 minute brawl.
     HOFFA (5-4622) (44-78-0,15) of JOHNS fought DRUNKEN FISHERMAN (104-1) (20-20-
0,50) of  .  HOFFA was handily defeated by DRUNKEN FISHERMAN in a 3 minute one-sided
conflict.
     ALOYICIUS (6-5045) (29-59-2,63) of THE LADY'S LIST fought DEBBY TONTE (104-2)
(20-30-0,30) of  .  ALOYICIUS devastated DEBBY TONTE in an exciting 1 minute bloody
uneven duel.

     Alarond the Scribe said "The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who
cannot lose with grace."  Was he implying that many of the fighters in Darkholm can't
win?  But then, he also mentioned the blood on a purple robe may stain, and offered
to let us all see his quill.  Hmm.

At any rate, the deed is done.  Until next time, cheerio!
