                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

     Only 7 stylemasters, they say.  So, we need a ripper, a waste, and a basher.  I'm 
sure Hagar Bluetooth would love to join us and provide the waste.  The other two might 
need someone else to offer up.  We shall see.  The arena as a whole could use some 
more activity, but 11 fights isn't terrible.  I think Nomad provided 7 warriors to the 
mix.  The arena would probably look a bit bigger if everyone that fought actually 
showed up in the newsletter.  Both Sigurd and Stay Puft fought for our squad this turn 
but neither seems to be listed in the rankings.  They are both a bit perturbed by 
this.  Somehow I think neither would be bothered as much had they lost last turn.  Can 
we get some help putting these guys back into the rankings?  
     Meanwhile I shall enjoy my stay at the top.  I suspect it will last until Crip 
shows up again with his army.  That will add to the numbers a bit and bring in some 
warriors with tons of FE and crazy records.  But while I am your Tower Guardian I 
shall endeavor to bring honor to the position.  I'd challenge, but those are my 
teammates below me.  Good luck to everyone on the sands this turn!

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Hey there!

We saw thirteen fights today, which is an improvement.  Nobody died.  There was one 
challenge.

SYMGARA (54-3300) (15-13-3,43) of LEGIONS OF FATE challenged HAPPY (50-3399) (16-22-
1,43) of STRANGE TUNES.  SYMGARA was devastated by HAPPY in a 1 minute mismatched 
Challenge fight.  Symgara was the only fighter who posted avoids.  According to Debby 
Tonte, Striker Force was the only team avoided.  According to somebody else, Symgara 
avoided Dark Toads.  Well, since Dark Toads isn't even on the team list, somebody's 
lying, eh?

Thank you, Huntsman, for writing a column.  HUNTSMAN (7-5837) (79-55-1,271) of 
SENTINELS fought HOPALONG CASSIDY (72-7839) (37-38-0,197) of COWBOY CROONERS.  
HUNTSMAN handily defeated HOPALONG CASSIDY in a 1 minute one-sided Title match.  
Huntsman is top Slasher and overall popularity leader.  And, of course, Tower 
Guardian.  Cassidy is top Parry-Lunge

Hreidman the Red is our leading Aimed Blow.  HREIDMAR THE RED (10-6148) (46-22-0,218) 
of VIKINGS fought TAMMY FAYE (39-3520) (47-105-0,197) of WITLESS WONDERS.  HREIDMAR 
THE RED devastated TAMMY FAYE in a popular 1 minute one-sided contest.  And Tammy Faye 
is top Striker.

Baldassare is top Parry-Strike.  BALDASSARE (7-6003) (61-53-0,225) of SENTINELS fought 
UNCLE FESTER (59-2768) (53-62-1,198) of TALL TALES.  BALDASSARE demolished UNCLE 
FESTER in a action packed 1 minute mismatched competition.

HAGAR BLUETOOTH (10-5850) (55-46-1,186) of VIKINGS fought G W BUSH (59-2764) (48-67-
2,158) of TALL TALES.  HAGAR BLUETOOTH overpowered G W BUSH in a crowd pleasing 1 
minute one-sided struggle.  Mr. Bluetooth is our best Wall of Steel.

KING MIDAS (59-2770) (47-62-1,153) of TALL TALES fought SUPERSIZE ME (47-8110) (25-15-
2,160) of FAST FOOD.  KING MIDAS handily defeated SUPERSIZE ME in a 1 minute uneven 
fight.

Johnny Appleseed is top Total Parry.  KNOS THE AXE (74-4394) (27-7-1,165) of BATTLEAXE 
STAMPEDE fought JOHNNY APPLESEED (59-2767) (41-74-0,112) of TALL TALES.  KNOS THE AXE 
vanquished JOHNNY APPLESEED in an action packed 3 minute gory uneven duel.

SWEET REVENGE (8-5378) (33-10-0,171) of PEASANT REBELLION fought SOUTHPOINT (52-3492) 
(24-5-0,174) of OHIO.  SWEET REVENGE vanquished SOUTHPOINT in a popular 1 minute one-
sided duel.

ETERNAL REST (72-8626) (20-7-0,126) of FEAR FACTORY 2 fought STAY PUFT (20-144) (20-
10-1,126) of PHANTOM REGIMENT.  ETERNAL REST was overpowered by STAY PUFT in a 1 
minute one-sided melee.

The top Lunger today is Peristylium.  PERISTYLIUM (71-7014) (22-19-0,99) of FEAR 
FACTORY 5 fought STRUCK (62-5002) (15-10-1,49) of STRIKER FORCE.  PERISTYLIUM 
overpowered STRUCK in a 1 minute one-sided match.  Poor Struck was voted today's least 
favorite fighter.  Guess folks thought he should have lasted longer.

SUFFOCATING SIGHT (71-6978) (21-20-0,87) of FEAR FACTORY 12 fought RIRORNI SOLDIER 
(106-3) (0-0-0,30).  SUFFOCATING SIGHT was devastated by RIRORNI SOLDIER in a 1 minute 
mismatched conflict.

JINX (47-7951) (36-33-1,86) of TEAM TOONS fought GARGLE SPEW (45-3902) (20-16-1,85) of 
EMETICS.  JINX subdued GARGLE SPEW in a popular 1 minute brawl.

LOFTIS (35-4571) (15-10-0,51) of HOUSE JHEREG fought SIGMUNDR (10-6525) (26-12-1,78) 
of VIKINGS.  LOFTIS handily defeated SIGMUNDR in a 1 minute one-sided conflict.

Huntsman said that neither Sigurd nor Stay Puft were listed in the rankings last turn.  
And he's right, they weren't.  I don't know why.  I don't think Sigurd fought today, 
but Stay Puft did.  And again, neither one is listed.  Dang it!  Fighters should get 
recognized for their deeds.  I'm going down to the Commission offices to yell at 
somebody.

Okay, that's all.  Gotta go do some yelling now.  Better warm up my voice first.  Do-
re-mi-fa-so....

                        SUMMER FACE-TO-FACE IN TAMPA, FLORIDA

We have planned our summer FTF for July 19-21, 2019, in Tampa, Florida.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Tampa Airport Westshore.  Room rates are $125 per night, 
1-2 occupancy.  There's free wireless throughout the property as well as a fitness 
center, outdoor pool, and business center, as well as a resturant and bar inside the 
hotel.  They have the usual Embassy Suites amenities we know and love: complimetary 
cooked-to-order breakfast and evening reception, plus there's a free airport shuttle 
and parking is only $4/day.  The rooms are blocked -- ask for the Reality Simulations 
block (RSS).  Reservations must be made by 6/20.  

                    Hotel site:  https://tinyurl.com/FFSummer2019
       (As always if you have issues making reservations, please let us know!)  

Look for the tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in June.  We hope 
you're all looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
