                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Yes!
     Darkholm saw another TV challenge this turn, as well as three other challenges, 
all thanks to the same guild, whose manager's name I do not know.  Speak up, sir!
     Anyway, there were 12 fights, four of which involved stand-ins, which is not bad 
as these things go.  The stand-ins scored two wins.
     GLAMDRING (33-2328) (55-44-1,183) of OBSIDIAN HALL TV challenged MIKEL (6-6190) 
(83-93-3,202) of THE LADY'S LIST.  GLAMDRING bested MIKEL in a crowd pleasing 1 minute 
Challenge fight.  Glamdring is our top Total Parry while Mikel is, as usual, top 
Slasher.
     WARDRA (82-56471) (26-10-1,178) of BLOODHAMMER CLAN challenged PHILTHRY (42-2079) 
(84-78-0,195) of HIGHLANDERS.  WARDRA vanquished PHILTHRY in an exciting 1 minute 
uneven Challenge battle.  Philthry is our top Parry-Strike, Wardra is top Lunger.
     AELFWINE (82-23244) (15-6-0,56) of BLOODHAMMER CLAN challenged PAC-MAN (21-8191) 
(27-24-1,66) of DEAD LEGENDS.  AELFWINE defeated PAC-MAN in a crowd pleasing 1 minute 
Challenge duel.
     SIR YVAIN (60-9076) (17-7-2,82) of MYTHICAL KNIGHTS challenged ASSASSIN (96-1802) 
(28-17-4,97) of BLOODY LEGION.  SIR YVAIN viciously subdued ASSASSIN in a popular 2 
minute brutal Challenge fight.
     ASSUR (18-7821) (103-144-2,236) of ARROGANCE fought DIGITALIS (33-6862) (36-42-
1,187) of OBSIDIAN HALL.  ASSUR viciously subdued DIGITALIS in an action packed 5 
minute gory Title brawl.  Assur is top Basher and quite good at what he does, but he 
should write columns.  However, he was the most popular fighter this turn.  Digitalis 
is our top Parry-Riposte.
     ZEUS (62-4010) (74-61-0,193) of LEGION OF LEGEND fought MAN-MOUNTAIN (7-3853) 
(36-43-1,155) of WASTELAND II.  ZEUS devastated MAN-MOUNTAIN in a crowd pleasing 1 
minute gory mismatched match.  Zeus is our top Wall of Steel, which is why everyone 
likes him.
     WYVERN (33-2457) (43-46-0,193) of OBSIDIAN HALL fought SHEWISH GIANT (104-25) (0-
0-0,181) of  .  WYVERN was handily defeated by SHEWISH GIANT in an action packed 1 
minute uneven melee.
     PELIS THE TRUE (42-3469) (71-115-1,168) of HIGHLANDERS fought FATALITY (7-5820) 
(58-75-0,135) of BRUTAL LEGION.  PELIS THE TRUE overpowered FATALITY in a popular 1 
minute gory uneven duel.  Fatality is top Striker, and Pelis the True is the overall 
popularity leader.
     CROW HELM (82-56829) (18-6-0,47) of CRESCENT SHIELD fought WINNING SIDE (6-4276) 
(16-6-1,55) of OINGO BOINGO.  CROW HELM beat WINNING SIDE in a popular 1 minute melee.  
Winning Side is not a stylemaster yet, but I suspect he soon will be.
     SIR LUCAN (60-9077) (16-11-0,41) of MYTHICAL KNIGHTS fought COCKY SPECTATOR (104-
3) (0-0-0,0) of  .  SIR LUCAN was overpowered by COCKY SPECTATOR in a 1 minute one-
sided match.
     BATTLE BANSHEE (47-7979) (10-8-1,73) of SPECTRAL STEEL fought a different COCKY 
SPECTATOR (104-3) (0-0-0,0) of  .  BATTLE BANSHEE viciously subdued COCKY SPECTATOR in 
an exciting 2 minute contest.
     KYLROI (40-4534) (22-3-0,90) of GRIZZLED VETERANS fought DRUNKEN FISHERMAN (104-
1) (20-20-0,50) of  .  KYLROI devastated DRUNKEN FISHERMAN in a crowd pleasing 1 
minute mismatched bout.  Kylroi is our top Aimed Blow, but he doesn't seem too scary 
at the moment.

     And that, sweet friends, is all I can report today.  Have a delightful two weeks, 
and cheerio!

Kylroi -- You're a natural, kid.  You'll go far.  Me?  I'm just seeing the sights.  I 
won this vacation in a contest.  (Don't ask me which one.)  Say, where is that tanned 
guy going with my beach babe? -- Winning Side

All -- I'm new here...  Hi.  Why did I come here?  The natives were friendly.  Really?  
No.  People seemed to talk here.  All two of you. -- Winning Side
