                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, it's hot, it's humid, they tell me the farmers like this weather.  All of
"they" except the farmers, that is.  The farmers want rain.  Good luck to 'em, I
never knew weather to come at anyone's choices.
     I know you guys didn't go to the tourney, not to fight, anyway, but your
managers probably did, and they're taking a few days to goof off and get over the
partying, right?  At least, that's the excuse that comes to mind for the state of
affairs here.
     Fan Zhen got the most points at 28.  Obrojobo lost the most at 23.  Same fight.
     The Commission Compilers of Data tell me that no avoids were issued for today's
fights.  The golem that took the primary notes for this spy report claim that Darque
Ages was most avoided by Dragonbane Guild.  Who to believe, eh?  I go with the
Compilers, since it's well known in spy reporting circles (we tend to go in circles a
lot) that the golems can't stand a vacuum.  If there's a place on the form for
avoids, and no avoids to put there, the golems will make something up.  Almost like
people, eh?  Four of Spades was most challenged.
     We had fourteen fights, three challenges, one standby.  None of the fights were
action-packed (it's too hot), but one was exciting.
     I'm not going to mess with stylemaster today, probably not much change in that.

     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (48-36-0,47) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought ALASTARIAN
DESERTER (107-1) (0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standbys.  1977 AMC MATADOR overpowered
ALASTARIAN DESERTER in a 1 minute uneven struggle.  Actually, this isn't a "fine
imported" standby, this is a ragged, shopworn, desperate standby.  We take what we
can get here.
     LHISSON (29-5456) (33-35-0,80) of MID EARTH fought JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (33-
23-0,48) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  LHISSON viciously subdued JELLO KNUCKLES in a popular 2
minute gruesome conflict.  Does this mean Lhisson gets to choose the flavor of the
jello?  Looked like cherry to me, but it might have been one of the other red ones.
     VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-6623) (27-28-1,145) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS fought ZEVRAN
(81-1258) (30-36-1,134) of OF WOLF AND MAN.  VIRGINIA, NO SANTA luckily beat ZEVRAN
in a crowd pleasing 2 minute gory match.  Not a bad match, as these things go.  But
no Santa for Zevran.
     RAGGEDY ANN (45-4148) (40-19-0,167) of DARQUE FORCES fought BEDDER (18-10043)
(25-15-2,107) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  RAGGEDY ANN luckily beat BEDDER in a crowd
pleasing 3 minute bloody competition.  And is anyone surprised?  No, I didn't think
so.
     PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (35-33-0,158) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought GRATH (81-581)
(36-25-1,146) of OF WOLF AND MAN.  PINCH BLISTER was overcome by GRATH in a popular 4
minute brutal bout.  Ooooh, the jaws that bite!  Grath looks quite the wolf out there
today.  Must be the dark of the moon.

     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (65-120-2,206) of FOUND IN THE SAND fought AZAGHAL (81-
1223) (27-25-0,164) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  SHINY PENNY vanquished AZAGHAL in a popular
1 minute brutal one-sided duel.  A penny for his thoughts?  Penny thought he could
win.  Or she, as the case might be.  Even it.
     EVANGELION (59-2340) (28-25-1,181) of IMPROVED ILLUSION fought HEINRIK (81-1257)
(34-34-1,184) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  EVANGELION was vanquished by HEINRIK in a popular 1
minute uneven duel.  How was this "uneven"?  Are you falling down on your practicing,
Evangelion?
     DELAWARE RUN (42-4400) (90-57-5,200) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought DOMINATRIX (81-
583) (33-25-3,196) of OF WOLF AND MAN.  DELAWARE RUN overpowered DOMINATRIX in a 1
minute uneven melee.  Nothing like a load of grim experience to assist in dominating
a Dominatrix.
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (27-23-1,192) of SENTINELS fought FAN ZHEN (81-1288) (27-17-
2,161) of DARQUE AGES.  OBROJOBO was overpowered by FAN ZHEN in a 1 minute mismatched
brawl.  This is the fight that resulted in the most movement in the rankings, and I
suppose I can see why.
     FROO-FROO (18-9589) (54-33-4,279) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought THE BRIDE (45-4180)
(35-17-1,195) of DARQUE FORCES.  FROO-FROO devastated THE BRIDE in a crowd pleasing 1
minute one-sided duel.  Some brides should keep it simple.

The challenges:
     JOSH (18-9109) (23-22-0,149) of SHEPHERDS challenged ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496)
(49-33-0,169) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Up 20.  JOSH lost to ALMOST PRETTY in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute Challenge brawl.  A worthy try.
     WALLI WEEBLE (21-6935) (35-23-0,151) of NOMADIC TRIBE challenged THE HYPHEN-DASH
(42-4499) (30-15-1,154) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Up 3.  WALLI WEEBLE luckily beat THE
HYPHEN-DASH in an exciting 4 minute gory Challenge melee.  This fight was the most
exciting today, probably because it lasted long enough for the fans to see it
happening.
     GAD (18-9239) (35-31-1,189) of SHEPHERDS challenged FOUR OF SPADES (42-4234)
(77-44-3,225) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Up 36.  GAD was bested by FOUR OF SPADES in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute Challenge fight.  Four was most challenged, remember?

For the title:
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (63-42-4,299) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought RINDEL (29-
5346) (38-28-0,211) of MID EARTH.  MOIST TOWELETTE overpowered RINDEL in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute one-sided Title fight.  Well, not much of a surprise.  How about a
column next time, Moist?
