                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Hullo there!

Malic here, as usual.  There were ten fights today, no challenges, no avoids, and no 
deaths.

Glamdring has successfully defended his right to carry the Runeblade, but he forgot to 
write a column!  Again!  GLAMDRING (33-2328) (69-50-1,261) of OBSIDIAN HALL fought 
MIKEL (6-6190) (89-107-3,185) of THE LADY'S LIST.  GLAMDRING bested MIKEL in a crowd 
pleasing 4 minute gruesome Title fight.  And so, Glamdring is still the top Total 
Parry and Mikel is top Slasher.

PELIS THE TRUE (42-3469) (82-124-1,193) of HIGHLANDERS fought JHAARAN (10-2017) (28-
26-2,156) of THE HOLY LEGION.  PELIS THE TRUE savagely defeated JHAARAN in an exciting 
4 minute gory melee.  Neither of these gentlemen is a stylemaster, but Mr. True is 
overall popularity leader AND this turn's favorite.

AELFWINE (82-23244) (28-13-0,193) of BLOODHAMMER CLAN fought DIRK CHOLERA (104-29) 
(80-50-4,250).  AELFWINE lost to DIRK CHOLERA in a crowd pleasing 3 minute brawl.  
It's no shame, losing to the infamous Bandit Prince.  In fact, beating him would be a 
miracle.  And Aelfwine is our top Lunger.

ASSUR (18-7821) (114-153-2,203) of ARROGANCE fought BATTLE BANSHEE (47-7979) (17-19-
2,172) of SPECTRAL STEEL.  ASSUR was defeated by BATTLE BANSHEE in an exciting 1 
minute fight.  It was a double-stylemaster fight, the top Striker beating the top 
Basher.

DIGITALIS (33-6862) (42-56-1,207) of OBSIDIAN HALL fought LOCAL CONSTABLE (104-22) (0-
0-0,181).  DIGITALIS was bested by LOCAL CONSTABLE in a 2 minute brawl.  Nevertheless, 
Digitalis is still our top Parry-Riposte.  Probably our only Parry-Riposte.

PHILTHRY (42-2079) (94-88-0,169) of HIGHLANDERS fought KANEN VILESTAR (31-6601) (21-8-
0,140) of SHADOWHOLD.  PHILTHRY vanquished KANEN VILESTAR in an exciting 2 minute 
bloody mismatched fight.  Top Parry-Strike, top Wall of Steel.  Mr. Vilestar was voted 
this turn's least favorite, but that doesn't mean much in an arena this small.

SIR YVAIN (60-9076) (23-18-2,155) of MYTHICAL KNIGHTS fought SHADOWMANE (104-28) (0-0-
0,200).  SIR YVAIN viciously subdued SHADOWMANE in an action packed 2 minute gruesome 
fight.  Ah!  Good fight.

KYLROI (40-4534) (31-14-0,127) of GRIZZLED VETERANS fought OLD SAILMAKER (104-7) (0-0-
0,110).  KYLROI lost to OLD SAILMAKER in a 2 minute duel.  Bit embarrassing, eh?

SIR LUCAN (60-9077) (25-22-0,141) of MYTHICAL KNIGHTS fought OLD SAILMAKER (104-7) (0-
0-0,110).  SIR LUCAN won victory over OLD SAILMAKER in an action packed 4 minute 
fight.  Sir Lucan is our top Aimed Blow.

THE TEACH (7-6621) (26-22-3,85) of LADIES OF QUALITY fought ZYRO (33-8118) (25-24-
0,50) of OBSIDIAN HALL.  THE TEACH viciously subdued ZYRO in a popular 3 minute brutal 
fight.

Olaf Modeen said Darkholm is a nice place to live.  Heh!  Willow Beach is nice enough, 
but Darkholm, the actual arena, has almost no windows, no heat, and too many spiders.  
And everything here is black stone -- the seats, even the treatment tables in the 
infirmary.  Some of us sit on cushions, but we have to bring our own.  So... you've 
got to wonder where else Modeen has lived, that's so much worse.

And that's all!  I'm going back to my nice, warm tower.  Cheerio!
