                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Back to back spy reports, JUST what I wanted on a hot summer day.  I'd mention 
how the grass looks dappled by sunlight and shade, but that'd sound Andorian, 
wouldn't it?  Sometimes it's hard, being cosmopolitan.

     Notes by the Unknown Spymaster (who does he think he's fooling with his silly 
bag?).  Pfui.
     Royal Flush avoided by Andorian Knights.
     Tashia most challenged.
     Seventeen fights, five challenges, darned thin if you ask me.  Especially just 
coming from Talahya with one hundred fifteen fights.  They had more challenges than 
we had total fights.  Work on this, people!
     Nobody died, but only that bloodthirsty wench in Darkholm worries about that.

     SNOWFALL (45-3473) (32-22-0,61) of NORTHERN LIGHTS fought MELTDOWN (8-4353) (21-
8-0,54) of X-FORCE.  SNOWFALL overpowered MELTDOWN in a crowd pleasing 2 minute gory 
mismatched brawl.  Froze him.
     MAGOG (31-5031) (19-11-2,80) of DARQUE FORCES fought ALASTARIAN DESERTER (106-1) 
(0-0-0,30) of the College of Mimes.  MAGOG devastated ALASTARIAN DESERTER in a 1 
minute uneven duel.  A fit fate for a deserter.
     GUTTERBALL (78-2344) (20-21-1,67) of PBA fought CHAOS WARRIOR (8-1779) (21-12-
0,75) of CHAMPIONS OF STEEL.  GUTTERBALL was unbelievably bested by CHAOS WARRIOR in 
an action packed 4 minute fight.  Believe it.  And get your mind out of the gutter.
     BALDER (28-3778) (15-10-3,50) of VALHALLA fought EGAN FORN (39-3295) (28-45-
0,57) of THE MIDDLE WAY.  BALDER savagely defeated EGAN FORN in a popular 2 minute 
bloody brawl.  Not a problem, Egan's used to it.
     PROOKIE (78-2345) (26-18-1,136) of PBA fought STIGMA OF STUPID (31-4948) (19-4-
1,107) of UNFIT TO BE ORCS.  PROOKIE was handily defeated by STIGMA OF STUPID in a 1 
minute one-sided contest.  If this is stupidity, more gladiators should try it.
     PINE (78-2350) (27-13-1,110) of TREE PEOPLE fought EVIL INPUTTER (106-7) (0-0-
0,110) of the College of Mimes.  PINE was subdued by EVIL INPUTTER in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute match.  Get her on a "good" day, and the Evil Inputter is a match 
for anyone.
     300 (78-2346) (26-20-0,171) of PBA fought SHADE (47-983) (27-10-2,107) of 
NEMESIS.  300 overpowered SHADE in a popular 1 minute one-sided melee.  And how hot 
was it in the SUN, eh?
     MIRTA (51-4033) (54-35-1,193) of SAND DANCERS fought SIR LY (10-4116) (49-38-
0,197) of SIR AGLIO.  MIRTA was vanquished by SIR LY in a popular 2 minute one-sided 
duel.  She told an orderly that it was the way he twirled his mustaches.
     IRONBAR (47-182) (34-23-0,192) of NEMESIS fought POOH-BEAR (47-1050) (32-30-
0,202) of THE BEAR'S PAW.  IRONBAR unbelievably bested POOH-BEAR in an action packed 
7 minute gory duel.  What's with this "unbelievable"?  Looks reasonable to me.
     SIR PLUS (10-4316) (35-36-1,196) of SIR AGLIO fought DANNIA TYL SIO (52-3393) 
(43-28-1,152) of SAND DANCERS.  SIR PLUS was defeated by DANNIA TYL SIO in an action 
packed 2 minute melee.  She doesn't like mustaches.
     SNOOPER (1-5154) (47-24-3,216) of MIKE'S MISFITS fought SPLIT (78-2347) (28-19-
0,185) of PBA.  SNOOPER overpowered SPLIT in a 1 minute mismatched brawl.  Found out 
his dirty secrets.
     STONEWALL (11-3900) (59-62-2,221) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS fought JUAN (41-2304) (34-
25-0,194) of DREAM TEAMS.  STONEWALL was devastated by JUAN in a crowd pleasing 2 
minute one-sided duel.  Not a dream but a nightmare.

     The challenge matches:
     ORPHAN (72-5463) (16-9-1,73) of X-POSSE challenged SUNFLASH (45-3474) (26-28-
1,75) of NORTHERN LIGHTS.  Up 2.  ORPHAN overpowered SUNFLASH in a 1 minute 
mismatched Challenge match.
     CANNONBALL (72-5313) (16-11-0,58) of X-POSSE challenged BEAR ACUDA (47-4995) 
(16-9-1,71) of THE BEAR'S PAW.  Up 13.  CANNONBALL was devastated by BEAR ACUDA in a 
1 minute one-sided Challenge contest.
     MATADOR (11-4139) (50-40-2,167) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS challenged KYRA (51-3774) 
(48-52-1,185) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 18.  MATADOR subdued KYRA in an action packed 2 
minute Challenge fight.
     SANDPAWN (11-4169) (55-30-1,193) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS challenged TASHIA (11-2740) 
(35-44-1,204) of DEADLY DE-PARTED.  Up 11.  SANDPAWN won victory over TASHIA in an 
action packed 6 minute Challenge battle.

     And for the title:  GRINNON BEARIT (47-2955) (31-16-3,234) of THE BEAR'S PAW 
challenged SANDBLASTER (11-3899) (62-59-3,244) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS.  Up 10.  GRINNON 
BEARIT was devastated by SANDBLASTER in a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.  Hard luck 
for the bear, good luck for the blaster.  Congratulations to both.

Egan Forn -- You can never be too tall and I think non-violent, maybe pacifist
describes me best.  Oh yeah, that would be yes, I'd rather not say, and I take the
Fifth. -- Orphan

Sunflash -- It looks like you flashed too bright for me this time. -- Meltdown

Magoa -- I really hate dwarves!  No really. -- Cannonball

Balder -- No...no, you don't look balder to me.  Your hair looks fine. -- Snowfall

Primus -- I never could work up a taste for beer.  I guess this is what comes of it,
eh? -- Mirta

Juninho -- But your foot doesn't look like a ball.  So what's the deal? -- Kyra
P.S.  With a golem, I would assume that it COULD look like a ball if it was supposed
to.

Shade -- This time of year, I could surely use some! -- Dannia tyl Sio
P.S.  Aren't you kind of SHORT for a Shew?

Meltdown -- Seasonally appropriate, but very messy. -- Sunflash

Alastarian Deserter?  One of the rats leaving the sinking ship, I take it. -- Egan
Forn

Ironbar of Nemesis -- Pants cut off?  Odd image.  Where did it...?  (pause to flip
back through old personals)  No obvious origin, but it IS an intriguing image.... --
Mirta

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

29 Jun 2005
The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
