                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Well, hullo there!

There were 13 fights today, including 4 challenges.  No one avoided, so the three 
stand-in fights can't be blamed on that.

AELFWINE (82-23244) (38-23-0,228) of BLOODHAMMER CLAN challenged JOE MAMA (21-6771) 
(63-75-1,288) of D.R.I..  AELFWINE viciously subdued JOE MAMA in a 3 minute Challenge 
Title fight.  Oddly, Aelfwine still isn't a stylemaster although he is, of course, the 
Keeper of the Runeblade.

SIR YVAIN (60-9076) (35-26-2,196) of MYTHICAL KNIGHTS challenged PHILTHRY (42-2079) 
(103-99-0,196) of HIGHLANDERS.  SIR YVAIN demolished PHILTHRY in a popular 1 minute 
one-sided Challenge melee.  Philthry continues as top Parry-Strike.

WARRIOR WIGHT (47-7978) (23-9-0,196) of SPECTRAL STEEL challenged PELIS THE TRUE (42-
3469) (95-131-1,210) of HIGHLANDERS.  WARRIOR WIGHT devastated PELIS THE TRUE in a 1 
minute one-sided Challenge contest.  The Wight is our top Lunger.  Mr. True is still 
our overall popularity leader.  Strangely, that's not the same as recognition points, 
is it?

RAMYL (85-4491) (10-8-2,40) of DARK CONSTRUCTS IX challenged SPICE (7-6640) (33-33-
5,55) of LADIES OF QUALITY.  RAMYL demolished SPICE in an action packed 1 minute 
mismatched Challenge competition.  No stylemasters in this one.

MIKEL (6-6190) (101-115-3,209) of THE LADY'S LIST fought RYANATOR (33-3462) (43-43-
0,193) of OBSIDIAN HALL.  MIKEL viciously subdued RYANATOR in a crowd pleasing 6 
minute bloody match.  It was the longest fight this turn.  Mikel is still, of course, 
top Slasher.  He was voted this turn's favorite fighter.

SIR LUCAN (60-9077) (35-32-0,182) of MYTHICAL KNIGHTS fought ASSUR (18-7821) (124-163-
2,196) of ARROGANCE.  SIR LUCAN was overpowered by ASSUR in an action packed 1 minute 
uneven melee.  Sir Lucan is our premier Aimed Blow, while Assur is top Basher.

JHAARAN (10-2017) (34-40-2,210) of THE HOLY LEGION fought THE TEACH (7-6621) (37-28-
4,163) of LADIES OF QUALITY.  JHAARAN was vanquished by THE TEACH in an action packed 
3 minute one-sided duel.  The Teach is our best Parry-Riposte.

KANEN VILESTAR (31-6601) (28-21-0,189) of SHADOWHOLD fought SOLACIA (104-24) (68-32-
0,225).  KANEN VILESTAR was savagely defeated by SOLACIA in an exciting 4 minute 
gruesome fight.  Well done!  Solacia is a tough opponent.  And Mr. Vilestar is our 
best Wall of Steel.

BATTLE BANSHEE (47-7979) (26-30-2,180) of SPECTRAL STEEL fought THE RAVEN (51-3875) 
(28-14-2,122) of COLLEGE RADIO.  BATTLE BANSHEE overpowered THE RAVEN in an exciting 1 
minute one-sided fight.  The Banshee is top Striker, and The Raven was voted this 
turn's least favorite fighter.  Hmm.

KYLROI (40-4534) (37-28-0,151) of GRIZZLED VETERANS fought KHALHUMS DWARF (104-10) (0-
0-0,150).  KYLROI was unbelievably bested by KHALHUMS DWARF in a 3 minute conflict.

KILLER KARCH (69-5668) (25-22-2,169) of SAND KINGS fought SYLKE (16-6221) (36-13-
0,121) of FANGDOR HOLD.  KILLER KARCH was luckily beaten by SYLKE in a popular 2 
minute bloody brawl.

ZYRO (33-8118) (33-36-0,93) of OBSIDIAN HALL fought GOLDEN SPIKE (1-1856) (23-25-0,66) 
of OBELISK 005.  ZYRO overcame GOLDEN SPIKE in a 2 minute fight.

MAJOR CINNAMON (97-6894) (12-13-4,44) of UNLIKELY HEROES 18W fought INKEEPER'S SON 
(104-4) (15-15-0,40).  MAJOR CINNAMON lost to INKEEPER'S SON in a crowd pleasing 4 
minute bout.

That's all, except for Zontani Sharp Eyes boasting about his stout legs.  So until 
next turn, cheerio!

Battle Banshee -- One hears other people make that bathtub remark, and it sounds 
stupid, but somehow, at the end of a fight, one sometimes can't help saying it.  It's 
a kind of temporary insanity, I guess. -- Pelis the True
