                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, we've got fights.  No personals from the warriors or managers, but we DO
have fights.  Thirteen fights, is that a lucky number?  Three challenges, one
standby.  Could be worse.
     Biggest point gain, The Bride, sixty-seven points.
     Biggest point loss, Fan Zhen, forty-one points.
     Most avoided, Mid Earth.  Most avoiding of Mid Earth, Nomadic Tribe.
     Most challenged, Almost Pretty.  It says here that she got "more challenges than
the duelmaster."  Since our Champion of the Horn didn't get ANY challenges, this was
not hard.

The fights:
     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (51-39-0,75) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought LUPUS MAJOR
(21-7146) (21-20-2,47) of NOMADIC TRIBE.  1977 AMC MATADOR bested LUPUS MAJOR in a 2
minute conflict.  This is bad!  You can see why wolves are endangered, being run down
like this.
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (35-27-0,38) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought ALASTARIAN
DESERTER (107-1) (0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standbys.  JELLO KNUCKLES outlasted
ALASTARIAN DESERTER in an exciting 7 minute match.  Well, a long fight always gives a
chance to get some hotdogs and a fresh beer.
     FAN ZHEN (81-1288) (28-22-2,180) of DARQUE AGES fought JOSH (18-9109) (24-27-
0,118) of SHEPHERDS.  FAN ZHEN was overpowered by JOSH in a popular 1 minute uneven
match.  And it's no wonder this caused Fan Zhen to drop so far.
     BEDDER (18-10043) (26-20-2,166) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought LHISSON (29-5456) (37-
37-0,128) of MID EARTH.  BEDDER lost to LHISSON in a 1 minute fight.  It's got to be
a tad embarrassing to lose to someone ranked so much lower.
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (68-123-2,205) of FOUND IN THE SAND fought PINCH BLISTER
(18-9859) (37-37-0,162) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  SHINY PENNY viciously subdued PINCH
BLISTER in a 2 minute gruesome fight.  Fair enough, a blister's vicious in itself.

     THE BRIDE (45-4180) (37-21-1,185) of DARQUE FORCES fought RINDEL (29-5346) (40-
32-0,207) of MID EARTH.  THE BRIDE assassinated RINDEL in an action packed 1 minute
gruesome uneven melee.  Killing pays, a lesson I'm not sure I would want to learn.
But it gave The Bride the biggest point gain today.
     RAGGEDY ANN (45-4148) (46-19-0,189) of DARQUE FORCES fought OBROJOBO (7-5869)
(28-25-1,174) of SENTINELS.  RAGGEDY ANN was viciously subdued by OBROJOBO in a crowd
pleasing 3 minute match.  It's the red hair, some people just can't stand redheads.
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (68-43-4,200) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought HEINRIK (81-
1257) (37-37-1,194) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  MOIST TOWELETTE devastated HEINRIK in a 1
minute one-sided duel.  Wiped the smile right off Heinrik's face.
     DELAWARE RUN (42-4400) (94-59-5,206) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought AZAGHAL (81-1223)
(28-27-0,170) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  DELAWARE RUN savagely defeated AZAGHAL in an
exciting 3 minute bloody fight.  Ran him down, in fact.  Around and around and around
the arena.

The challenges:
     VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-6623) (28-33-1,150) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS challenged
ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496) (54-34-0,177) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Up 27.  VIRGINIA, NO SANTA
was subdued by ALMOST PRETTY in a 2 minute Challenge fight.  Nothing like the weight
of experience coming down on the back of someone else's neck.  Wham, and Virginia is
down.
     WALLI WEEBLE (21-6935) (36-25-0,169) of NOMADIC TRIBE challenged THE HYPHEN-DASH
(42-4499) (33-18-1,190) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Up 21.  WALLI WEEBLE unbelievably bested
THE HYPHEN-DASH in a 4 minute Challenge battle.  Believe it!
     GAD (18-9239) (35-37-1,198) of SHEPHERDS challenged FOUR OF SPADES (42-4234)
(83-44-3,283) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Up 85!  Bold, indeed.  GAD was devastated by FOUR
OF SPADES in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  I can hardly feel surprised at
this result.  I hope that Gad received plenty of skills.

For the title:
     EVANGELION (59-2340) (33-26-1,242) of IMPROVED ILLUSION fought FROO-FROO (18-
9589) (59-34-4,214) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  EVANGELION slimly won victory over FROO-FROO
in a 2 minute Title contest.  No change.  Congratulations to Evangelion yet again.

One initiative, slightly damaged.  Appears to have been stepped on.
