                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Hullo!
     Oh dear, just eleven fights today, including five that involved stand-ins. That 
means only 17 gladiators took part.  At least there were three challenges, including 
one by the indefatigable Winning Side.
     Sweet Child didn't show up, and so lost the Runeblade.  However, Glamdring made a 
brave challenge, and it was... a pretty good fight, if you like blood and gore, which 
I don't.  GLAMDRING (33-2328) (62-50-1,210) of OBSIDIAN HALL challenged MIKEL (6-6190) 
(89-100-3,211) of THE LADY'S LIST. GLAMDRING bested MIKEL in a crowd pleasing 4 minute 
gruesome Challenge Title fight.  And so, Glamdring is our premier Total Parry, while 
Mikel is still top Slasher. 
     WARDRA (82-56471) (35-14-1,197) of BLOODHAMMER CLAN challenged ASSUR (18-7821) 
(110-150-2,217) of ARROGANCE.  WARDRA subdued ASSUR in an exciting 1 minute Challenge 
melee.  Assur is top Basher.
     WINNING SIDE (6-4276) (16-18-1,64) of OINGO BOINGO challenged ZYRO (33-8118) (23-
19-0,52) of OBSIDIAN HALL.  WINNING SIDE was savagely defeated by ZYRO in a 3 minute 
Challenge duel.  I wish it had gone better for you, Win.
     DIGITALIS (33-6862) (39-52-1,183) of OBSIDIAN HALL fought LOCAL CONSTABLE (104-
22) (0-0-0,181) of  .  DIGITALIS savagely defeated LOCAL CONSTABLE in an exciting 5 
minute bloody fight.  Well done, Didge, you top Parry-Riposte, you -- and this turn's 
favorite, too.
     AELFWINE (82-23244) (23-11-0,159) of BLOODHAMMER CLAN fought CAPTURED CUTPURSE 
(104-6) (0-0-0,130) of  .  AELFWINE devastated CAPTURED CUTPURSE in a crowd pleasing 1 
minute one-sided duel.  Aelfwine is the top-ranked Lunger.
     BATTLE BANSHEE (47-7979) (15-14-2,158) of SPECTRAL STEEL fought LOCAL CONSTABLE 
(104-22) (0-0-0,181) of  .  BATTLE BANSHEE overpowered LOCAL CONSTABLE in a popular 2 
minute mismatched brawl.  The Banshee is top Striker. 
     SIR YVAIN (60-9076) (19-15-2,121) of MYTHICAL KNIGHTS fought CAPTURED CUTPURSE 
(104-6) (0-0-0,130) of  .  SIR YVAIN vanquished CAPTURED CUTPURSE in an action packed 
1 minute uneven duel.  Look at that!  Four of five stand-ins were defeated.  Well 
done, my friends!
     KYLROI (40-4534) (29-9-0,128) of GRIZZLED VETERANS fought PHILTHRY (42-2079) (89-
86-0,111) of HIGHLANDERS.  KYLROI was overpowered by PHILTHRY in a 1 minute uneven 
duel.  Kylroi is the top Aimed Blow.
     PELIS THE TRUE (42-3469) (77-122-1,149) of HIGHLANDERS fought JHAARAN (10-2017) 
(27-20-2,148) of THE HOLY LEGION.  PELIS THE TRUE savagely defeated JHAARAN in an 
exciting 2 minute gruesome fight.  As usual, Pelis is the overall popularity leader.
     SIR LUCAN (60-9077) (21-19-0,98) of MYTHICAL KNIGHTS fought DESIREE (104-23) (20-
15-4,150) of  .  SIR LUCAN was overpowered by DESIREE in an exciting 1 minute bloody 
one-sided fight.  She isn't the real Desiree, but she's pretty tough to beat, eh?
     THE TEACH (7-6621) (22-19-3,88) of LADIES OF QUALITY fought KANEN VILESTAR (31-
6601) (16-6-0,51) of SHADOWHOLD.  THE TEACH was overcome by KANEN VILESTAR in a 2 
minute contest.  Mr. Vilestar is our premier Wall of Steel.
     This brings us to the end of our tale of... hmm.  All right, I'm gone.  Cheerio!
