                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     We're in kind of a rush here today, on account of the tourney.  I didn't go, you
didn't go, but still, everyone is rushed. And the Hands are cramping and threatening
to quit on me.  Plus about half of the gladiators here are lazy, too.  Thank you for
admitting that, Lazy Lookout!
     So, in brief, here are the details:  The Bride had the biggest point gain at 17.
1977 Amc Matador had the biggest loss at 20.
     Mid Earth was avoided by Shepherds.  Apparently no one was most challenged.  I
note here that not only were Shepherds (and associated teams, no doubt,
Assurnasirbanipal's guys) the most avoiding, they were also the only challengers.
This is known as "using all the available management tools," and it works, folks.
Really.
     Seventeen fights, embarrassingly, six involved standbys.  Three challenges.

     LHISSON (29-5456) (28-27-0,59) of MID EARTH fought BEDDER (18-10043) (18-9-2,65)
of CENTER FOR OLDS.  LHISSON was overpowered by BEDDER in an exciting 1 minute one-
sided match.
     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (41-30-0,82) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought R.O.U.S. (107-
4) (0-0-0,50) of Again, the Standbys.  1977 AMC MATADOR was viciously subdued by
R.O.U.S. in a crowd pleasing 5 minute brawl.  Hence the Matador's big point drop.
     THE HYPHEN-DASH (42-4499) (19-13-1,79) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought ALASTARIAN
DESERTER (107-1) (0-0-0,30) of Again, the Standbys.  THE HYPHEN-DASH bested
ALASTARIAN DESERTER in an action packed 2 minute brutal duel.
     FAN ZHEN (81-1288) (20-11-2,100) of DARQUE AGES fought JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554)
(30-13-0,29) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  FAN ZHEN defeated JELLO KNUCKLES in a popular 2
minute duel.

     THE BRIDE (45-4180) (28-11-1,132) of DARQUE FORCES fought FLOYD (107-10) (0-0-
0,150) of Again, the Standbys.  THE BRIDE viciously subdued FLOYD in a crowd pleasing
2 minute bloody bout.  And here is the major point gain.
     PLANKTON (18-9748) (29-28-2,160) of SEA DOGS fought RAGGEDY ANN (45-4148) (33-
13-0,105) of DARQUE FORCES.  PLANKTON viciously subdued RAGGEDY ANN in an exciting 3
minute brutal contest.
     LAZY LOOKOUT (42-4504) (34-27-1,153) of DUNGEON CELL fought DOMINATRIX (81-583)
(29-16-3,150) of OF WOLF AND MAN.  LAZY LOOKOUT subdued DOMINATRIX in a 2 minute
competition.
     GRATH (81-581) (33-15-1,179) of OF WOLF AND MAN fought RINDEL (29-5346) (30-23-
0,175) of MID EARTH.  GRATH outlasted RINDEL in an exciting 9 minute fight.

     HEINRIK (81-1257) (30-25-1,176) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought EVANGELION (59-2340)
(22-18-1,143) of IMPROVED ILLUSION.  HEINRIK vanquished EVANGELION in an exciting 1
minute gruesome one-sided fight.
     TING-TING (81-776) (33-17-0,171) of FUCHI OWNED fought ARIOCH (81-996) (27-23-
3,134) of OF WOLF AND MAN.  TING-TING vanquished ARIOCH in a 1 minute uneven fight.
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (52-40-4,259) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought VERMICIOUS KNID
(107-30) (0-0-0,240) of Again, the Standbys.  MOIST TOWELETTE was unbelievably bested
by VERMICIOUS KNID in a 4 minute melee.
     FOUR OF SPADES (42-4234) (66-41-2,215) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought RIRORNI COOK
(107-24) (0-0-0,181) of Again, the Standbys.  FOUR OF SPADES devastated RIRORNI COOK
in a crowd pleasing 1 minute mismatched match.
     FROO-FROO (18-9589) (43-31-4,218) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought THE BLACKSMITH (107-
22) (0-0-0,181) of Again, the Standbys.  FROO-FROO demolished THE BLACKSMITH in a 1
minute mismatched competition.

Ah, the challenges!
     JOSH (18-9109) (21-10-0,100) of SHEPHERDS challenged ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496)
(39-30-0,133) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Up 33.  JOSH was demolished by ALMOST PRETTY in a 1
minute uneven Challenge fight.
     GAD (18-9239) (30-22-1,99) of SHEPHERDS challenged PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (31-
24-0,150) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  Up 51!  GAD viciously subdued PINCH BLISTER in an
exciting 4 minute gruesome Challenge duel.  I'm not surprised Josh lost the previous
match, but I *am* surprised that Gad won this one.
     VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-6623) (25-16-1,115) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS challenged
ZEVRAN (81-1258) (24-29-1,138) of OF WOLF AND MAN.  Up 23.  VIRGINIA, NO SANTA bested
ZEVRAN in a 1 minute Challenge fight.

For the title:
     DELAWARE RUN (42-4400) (79-54-5,278) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought SHINY PENNY (32-
3789) (59-112-2,184) of FOUND IN THE SAND.  DELAWARE RUN was devastated by SHINY
PENNY in a 1 minute one-sided Title contest.  And I hope that something else will be
found in the sand:  A Champion's column.  Good work, Penny.
