                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     It's a hot summer day here, and I begin to wonder why we don't hold these fights
at night.  Sure, there are bugs at night, but what's a bug or two to a warrior?  Is
it the memory of your earlier dueling years, when a fight at night carried ominous
possibilities?
     Ah, well, hot or not, here we are.  Darque Ages were most avoided, which is what
I was just saying, isn't it?  Or is it?  Nomadic Tribe's been avoiding them the most.
     Fifteen fights, three standbys, four challenges.  Here we go--

     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (47-36-0,45) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought CAPTURED PIRATE
KING (107-2) (0-0-0,30) of the Same Imported Standbys.  1977 AMC MATADOR overcame
CAPTURED PIRATE KING in a crowd pleasing 2 minute bout.  Ran him down in the street
of Storm Rock and smashed him flat.
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (32-23-0,30) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought R.O.U.S. (107-4)
(0-0-0,50) of the Same Imported Standbys.  JELLO KNUCKLES viciously subdued R.O.U.S.
in a crowd pleasing 7 minute gruesome bout.  Gruesome it may have been, but the fans
loved it and voted Jello Most Popular Today.  Nobody likes a rat.
     BEDDER (18-10043) (24-15-2,100) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought LHISSON (29-5456) (33-
34-0,83) of MID EARTH.  BEDDER handily defeated LHISSON in a 1 minute one-sided
conflict.  For reasons which are a mystery to me, Lhisson was the least popular
today.
     GRATH (81-581) (36-24-1,158) of OF WOLF AND MAN fought AZAGHAL (81-1223) (26-25-
0,141) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  GRATH was savagely defeated by AZAGHAL in a crowd
pleasing 3 minute gory match.  Some people really come across as dragons, by reason
of appearance or attitude, and that brings out the dragon bane effect in any worthy
warrior.
     ZEVRAN (81-1258) (30-35-1,176) of OF WOLF AND MAN fought THE HYPHEN-DASH (42-
4499) (29-15-1,105) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  ZEVRAN was demolished by THE HYPHEN-DASH in a
1 minute mismatched competition.  This was the fight that involved the most movement
in the ranks:  Hyphen-Dash up forty-nine, Zevran down forty-two.

     DELAWARE RUN (42-4400) (89-57-5,194) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought FAN ZHEN (81-1288)
(27-16-2,152) of DARQUE AGES.  DELAWARE RUN handily defeated FAN ZHEN in an exciting
1 minute one-sided bout.  I've been meaning to ask, is Delaware Run a river or a
race?
     RINDEL (29-5346) (37-28-0,194) of MID EARTH fought RAGGEDY ANN (45-4148) (40-18-
0,166) of DARQUE FORCES.  RINDEL vanquished RAGGEDY ANN in a popular 3 minute brutal
one-sided duel.  A battle of titans, with Rindel being the top ripper and Raggedy the
leading total parry.
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (26-23-1,186) of SENTINELS fought PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (35-
32-0,160) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  OBROJOBO vanquished PINCH BLISTER in a 2 minute gory
uneven duel.  And what, exactly, was it that Obrojobo offered Pinch to drink just
before the fight?  "Maintaining electrolyte levels"?
     DOMINATRIX (81-583) (33-24-3,221) of OF WOLF AND MAN fought TELGOR (107-27) (0-
0-0,200) of the Same Imported Standbys.  DOMINATRIX was defeated by TELGOR in an
action packed 2 minute melee.  Embarrassing.
     FROO-FROO (18-9589) (53-33-4,272) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought HEINRIK (81-1257)
(34-33-1,185) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  FROO-FROO overpowered HEINRIK in a 1 minute
mismatched brawl.  Froo-Froo is our sharpest slasher.

The challenges:
     WALLI WEEBLE (21-6935) (34-23-0,139) of NOMADIC TRIBE challenged VIRGINIA, NO
SANTA (65-6623) (27-27-1,150) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS.  Up 11.  WALLI WEEBLE defeated
VIRGINIA, NO SANTA in an exciting 2 minute Challenge fight.  There are days like
that.
     JOSH (18-9109) (23-21-0,143) of SHEPHERDS challenged ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496)
(48-33-0,167) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Up 24.  JOSH was bested by ALMOST PRETTY in a 2
minute Challenge contest.  Josh is the leading aimer, and Almost the steeliest wall.
     GAD (18-9239) (35-30-1,188) of SHEPHERDS challenged FOUR OF SPADES (42-4234)
(76-44-3,214) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Up 26.  GAD was demolished by FOUR OF SPADES in a
popular 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  Four was most challenged today, and did
well out of it.  Four is the top lunger, and Gad the leading parry-lunger.  So, is
the message here:  Don't waste time trying to parry?
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (64-120-2,183) of FOUND IN THE SAND challenged EVANGELION
(59-2340) (28-24-1,199) of IMPROVED ILLUSION.  Up 16.  SHINY PENNY devastated
EVANGELION in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Shiny, our highest-ranked
basher, is also the overall popularity leader.

For the title:
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (62-42-4,278) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought THE BRIDE (45-
4180) (35-16-1,213) of DARQUE FORCES.  MOIST TOWELETTE devastated THE BRIDE in a
popular 1 minute bloody uneven Title brawl.  You don't get to be Champ by being easy.
Moist Towelette is our master striker, as well as Champion of the Horn.
Congratulations yet again.

Suave -- If you only knew what your warriors did while you were away...  I'm
surprised there weren't a couple of heart attacks at the Center for Olds, given the
activities that went on. -- Assur
P.S.  Welcome home

Evangelion -- I really thought I had you, girl. -- Shiny Penny

Pinch Blister / Four of Spades / Almost Pretty -- More losses for us, but most skills
for most of us. -- Gad / Josh / Virginia
