                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Well, heck.  Darn.  Drat.  (Anything stronger is censored in the scribal 
office.)  I come RUSHING back across VAST distances in the RAIN, JUST so I can do you 
a spy report, and what do I find.  Very little.
     Sixteen fights (one involving a standby), TWO challenges and NO avoids.  No 
deaths, but I'm not the bloodthirsty wench down in Darkholm; I don't mind if nobody 
dies.  Who'd want to?

     For what it's worth, here are the fights:
     GREGORY GOYLE (74-3497) (30-38-1,70) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE fought ALEX GRIFFIN (9-
4856) (16-14-1,83) of DREAM PARK.  GREGORY GOYLE bested ALEX GRIFFIN in a 2 minute 
brawl.  And the fans (both of them) were shouting "Go, Greg!"  Good fans, Greg.  
Ah... your brothers, perhaps?
     MOCKINGBIRD (75-3073) (23-13-0,96) of DARK TOADS fought FLOYD (107-10) (0-0-
0,150) of Bored Fans.  MOCKINGBIRD was handily defeated by FLOYD in a 1 minute 
mismatched bout.  You can see why Floyd was bored.  We expect better of our Lord 
Protectors here.
     THE QUICKLING (70-1669) (60-134-2,136) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought KING LOVE (40-
3748) (37-37-2,150) of SUNNYLAND.  THE QUICKLING was defeated by KING LOVE in a 
naction packed 2 minute struggle.  Lots of naction in that match, which is always a 
pleasure to see.
     UHLEK (38-4234) (21-20-3,165) of DARK TOADS fought TOM RIDDLE (74-3501) (37-31-
2,171) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  UHLEK was handily defeated by TOM RIDDLE in a 1 minute 
one-sided conflict.  Tom, Tom, we're annoyed with you!  How can such a match have 
been "one-sided"?  Oh... (blushes), wait a minute, I read that wrong.  You won.  
Well, okay, that's a lot better.
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (79-96-0,177) of DARKLINGS fought TORYN TYL DAGEDA (74-2777) 
(70-78-4,175) of SAND DANCERS.  NIGHTCAP demolished TORYN TYL DAGEDA in a popular 1 
minute mismatched match.  And why, we ask, was this result popular with the "crowd"?  
Inquiring minds, and all that.

     CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-196) (62-92-0,184) of THE DRAGON FIST fought KHORA THE SMALL 
(78-519) (131-143-3,196) of SAND DANCERS.  CORT NIGHTJEWEL was bested by KHORA THE 
SMALL in a crowd pleasing 1 minute conflict.  And, as they say, what else is new?
     WITCH (75-3088) (26-8-1,196) of THAT'S US fought THOMAS (82-14150) (18-23-2,152) 
of TOADS OF KRONDUR II.  WITCH subdued THOMAS in a 2 minute match.  Betwitched him, 
er, it, in fact.
     KYRLANIA (70-2327) (77-105-1,196) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought JAMMIES (74-2829) 
(71-77-1,169) of DARKLINGS.  KYRLANIA overpowered JAMMIES in a popular 1 minute gory 
uneven match.  Ah, well, Jammies didn't really NEED a winning record, did he?
     VINCENT CRABBE (74-3498) (39-30-2,185) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE fought DAMORETH STENN 
(65-6105) (47-56-0,158) of SAND DANCERS.  VINCENT CRABBE was vanquished by DAMORETH 
STENN in a 1 minute one-sided duel.  Vince, you have been lying down on the job here.  
Sure, Stenn's a friendly guy, but a super gladiator he is not.
     DARLINA (74-2995) (48-35-3,202) of SAND DANCERS fought DEADBOLT (70-1664) (94-
107-2,189) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  DARLINA lost to DEADBOLT in a popular 1 minute duel.  
Probably too bored to realize the fight was going on.

     CYLADIA (51-1122) (109-119-1,185) of SKAITHVARN fought BRAND (82-13289) (24-22-
1,200) of TOADS OF AMBER III.  CYLADIA was handily defeated by BRAND in a naction 
packed 2 minute uneven fight.  Was she branded?  Or just afflicted with amber warts?
     BAT (74-2742) (86-90-1,205) of DARKLINGS fought WAIS (65-6447) (28-41-0,161) of 
DARK TOADS.  BAT vanquished WAIS in an exciting 1 minute bloody mismatched fight.  
What was exciting was the bit after Wais surrendered, when she had to battle to keep 
Bat from cutting the jewel out of her forehead.  No good taking it, Bat, because 
toad-jewels don't survive separation from their hosts.
     TAIRIKIA (51-4247) (87-84-0,211) of SAND DANCERS fought NIGHTFALL (74-2421) 
(111-101-4,200) of DARKLINGS.  TAIRIKIA overpowered NIGHTFALL in a crowd pleasing 1 
minute mismatched match.  It amazes me that this Rirorni has no kills yet.  Is she 
"soft"?
     And our challenge matches:
     DESPERADO (77-2459) (21-10-2,70) of POSSE challenged ARIA (75-3012) (25-26-
1,100) of DARK TOADS.  Up 30.  DESPERADO demolished ARIA in a popular 1 minute one-
sided Challenge melee.  Good work, Desperado.
     MAD DOC WILLIAMS (77-2432) (28-6-0,193) of POSSE challenged ZALMARDARIN (78-312) 
(60-98-3,206) of THE DRAGON FIST.  Up 13.  MAD DOC WILLIAMS was viciously subdued by 
ZALMARDARIN in a 2 minute Challenge fight.  Ah, well, Zalmardarin is widely known for 
his vile temper.  But our salute to the manager of Posse for making the challenges in 
the first place.

     And for the title:  DRACO MALFOY (74-3500) (41-18-1,241) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE 
fought TALON WARSMITH (99-101) (89-92-8,218) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  DRACO MALFOY was 
vanquished by TALON WARSMITH in a 1 minute mismatched Title brawl.  This happens to 
people who don't write columns or use challenges and avoids.
