                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, we have fights.  We have paper and pen.  We have daylight.  We have...
action!
     Biggest point movements:  Fan Zhen, up fifty.  Almost Pretty down thirty-seven.
Same fight.
     Center for Olds was most avoided, and Nomadic Tribe avoided them the most.  Gad
got the most challenges.
     We had fifteen fights (how about some recruiting, you guys?), involving two
standbys and three challenges.

     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (44-35-0,36) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought RIRORNI SOLDIER
(107-3) (0-0-0,30) of Standard Imported Standbys.  1977 AMC MATADOR devastated
RIRORNI SOLDIER in an exciting 1 minute uneven duel.  A confusing image:  Did Matador
run over the Soldier in a chariot, or distract him with a red cape and stab him?
Suave, can you tell us what happened here?
     THE HYPHEN-DASH (42-4499) (25-15-1,71) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought LHISSON (29-
5456) (31-32-0,83) of MID EARTH.  THE HYPHEN-DASH handily defeated LHISSON in a
popular 1 minute uneven fight.  That fight was about as long as a hyphen.
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (32-19-0,40) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought UNEMPLOYED PERSON
(107-5) (0-0-0,70) of Standard Imported Standbys.  JELLO KNUCKLES was bested by
UNEMPLOYED PERSON in a 2 minute bloody bout.  Understandable given the different
ranks, but embarrassing anyway.  I have often wondered why this Unemployed Person
hasn't been hired as a gladiator.  Anyone have a clue?
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (24-24-0,136) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought BEDDER (18-10043)
(24-11-2,100) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  AZAGHAL bested BEDDER in an exciting 3 minute
battle.  Yet another example of how little effort (apparently) the handicapper puts
into getting a truly balanced match.
     PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (33-30-0,138) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought VIRGINIA, NO
SANTA (65-6623) (26-24-1,119) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS.  PINCH BLISTER bested
VIRGINIA, NO SANTA in a 3 minute conflict.  If blisters are what you get for
Christmas, then definitely no Santa!
     ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496) (45-32-0,177) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought FAN ZHEN (81-
1288) (24-15-2,108) of DARQUE AGES.  ALMOST PRETTY was beaten by FAN ZHEN in an
exciting 2 minute brutal fight.  The fight that resulted in the most movement.
Clearly, Fan Zhen is a warrior to watch.  From a safe distance.

     GRATH (81-581) (36-20-1,184) of OF WOLF AND MAN fought OBROJOBO (7-5869) (24-22-
1,174) of SENTINELS.  GRATH was savagely defeated by OBROJOBO in an exciting 2 minute
gruesome fight.  Underdog win here, always popular with the fans and sure to annoy
the bookies.
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (63-117-2,199) of FOUND IN THE SAND fought HEINRIK (81-
1257) (33-30-1,184) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  SHINY PENNY overpowered HEINRIK in a 1 minute
uneven duel.  These long-bearded types are suckers for a shiny trinket, I guess.  Not
to mention the experience difference.
     DELAWARE RUN (42-4400) (86-56-5,220) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought THE BRIDE (45-
4180) (32-15-1,184) of DARQUE FORCES.  DELAWARE RUN vanquished THE BRIDE in an action
packed 1 minute uneven duel.  Not a runaway bride, so... a runaway groom?  All the
way to Delaware.
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (58-42-4,228) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought ZEVRAN (81-
1258) (30-31-1,194) of OF WOLF AND MAN.  MOIST TOWELETTE devastated ZEVRAN in an
action packed 1 minute one-sided competition.  Many wolves are unnerved if you wash
their faces.  Of course, first you have to get close enough and survive it....
     FROO-FROO (18-9589) (49-33-4,222) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought DOMINATRIX (81-583)
(31-22-3,196) of OF WOLF AND MAN.  FROO-FROO vanquished DOMINATRIX in an exciting 1
minute mismatched fight.  News flash!  The Dominatrix can't face marabou.  Come to
that, I don't think I've ever seen armor trimmed that lavishly with ostrich feathers.
It's... unnerving.

The challenges:
     LORD EXETER (81-932) (31-19-1,141) of DRAGONBANE GUILD challenged RAGGEDY ANN
(45-4148) (37-17-0,143) of DARQUE FORCES.  Up 2.  LORD EXETER overpowered RAGGEDY ANN
in a 3 minute mismatched Challenge duel.  He *told* her to come dressed in her
best....
     JOSH (18-9109) (23-17-0,150) of SHEPHERDS challenged RINDEL (29-5346) (34-27-
0,170) of MID EARTH.  Up 20.  JOSH was overcome by RINDEL in a 2 minute Challenge
match.  Not especially surprising.  I hope the skills were good, Josh.
     WALLI WEEBLE (21-6935) (32-21-0,139) of NOMADIC TRIBE challenged GAD (18-9239)
(33-28-1,152) of SHEPHERDS.  Up 13.  WALLI WEEBLE was devastated by GAD in a 5 minute
mismatched Challenge fight.  If it took Gad five minutes to win, that suggests that
Walli wasn't so over-matched as all that.

For the title:
     FOUR OF SPADES (42-4234) (73-43-3,206) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought EVANGELION (59-
2340) (27-21-1,217) of IMPROVED ILLUSION.  FOUR OF SPADES overpowered EVANGELION in a
1 minute mismatched Title match.  Having the fifth ace definitely WAS an illusion.
Good work, Four.  Write and tell us about it.
