                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     It must be the season.  Everything's moving in slow motion, including me.
Molasses in January?  Racing madly by comparison.
     Biggest point gain, Bedder, 27 points.  Biggest drop, Lhisson, 23 points.  Same
fight.
     Most challenges, Froo-Froo, the Champion of the Horn.
     Most avoids (in theory), Color Me Suave, by Nomadic Tribe.
     Twelve fights, two challenges, NO STANDBYS!

     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (38-29-0,72) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought CAJETAN (7-6036)
(18-18-1,68) of SENTINELS.  JELLO KNUCKLES was overcome by CAJETAN in a 3 minute
contest.  Well, of course.  Haven't you ever heard of whipped jello?
     PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (37-42-0,150) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought VIRGINIA, NO
SANTA (65-6623) (29-37-1,118) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS.  PINCH BLISTER subdued
VIRGINIA, NO SANTA in a 3 minute competition.  Tis the season.
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (29-29-0,169) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought 1977 AMC MATADOR (42-
4116) (56-39-0,125) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  AZAGHAL viciously subdued 1977 AMC MATADOR in
a popular 5 minute brutal bout.  Azaghal was the most popular warrior this turn.
     GAD (18-9239) (36-41-1,192) of SHEPHERDS fought RINDEL (29-5346) (40-37-0,176)
of MID EARTH.  GAD slimly won victory over RINDEL in a popular 4 minute brutal fight.
Gad is our top parry-lunger.
     LHISSON (29-5456) (41-38-0,184) of MID EARTH fought BEDDER (18-10043) (27-24-
2,156) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  LHISSON was vanquished by BEDDER in an action packed 1
minute one-sided duel.  This was the fight with the biggest changes in ranking.

     THE BRIDE (45-4180) (39-24-2,193) of DARQUE FORCES fought HEINRIK (81-1257) (39-
40-1,205) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  THE BRIDE overpowered HEINRIK in an action packed 1
minute uneven melee.  The Bride is our leading lunger.
     ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496) (57-36-0,194) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought SHINY PENNY (32-
3789) (72-124-2,203) of FOUND IN THE SAND.  ALMOST PRETTY beat SHINY PENNY in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute brawl.  Almost Pretty is our steeliest wall, AND the overall
popularity leader.  Shiny Penny is the boss basher.
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (72-44-4,210) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought FAN ZHEN (81-
1288) (31-24-2,195) of DARQUE AGES.  MOIST TOWELETTE vanquished FAN ZHEN in a 1
minute mismatched fight.  Moist Towelette is the most striking striker.  I note in
passing that this arena still does not count a parry-striker in its numbers.
     EVANGELION (59-2340) (36-28-1,214) of IMPROVED ILLUSION fought THE HYPHEN-DASH
(42-4499) (35-21-1,202) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  EVANGELION narrowly defeated THE HYPHEN-
DASH in a crowd pleasing 4 minute match.  Evangelion is the leading parry-riposte.
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (31-25-1,213) of SENTINELS fought JOSH (18-9109) (27-29-0,195)
of SHEPHERDS.  OBROJOBO was vanquished by JOSH in a popular 1 minute mismatched
brawl.  Josh is our Mr. Accuracy today, the top-ranked aimed blow.

A challenge:
     WALLI WEEBLE (21-6935) (38-27-0,185) of NOMADIC TRIBE challenged RAGGEDY ANN
(45-4148) (48-22-0,187) of DARQUE FORCES.  Up 2.  WALLI WEEBLE was savagely defeated
by RAGGEDY ANN in a 601 minute Challenge melee.  Call this The Fight Most Likely To
Lead To Warriors Being Stoned By The Fans.  Although most of the fans went home and
took a nap when they saw how it was shaping up.  Raggedy Ann is our most impervious
total parry, and Walli Weeble is the least popular warrior this turn.

For the title:
     LORD EXETER (81-932) (34-21-1,215) of DRAGONBANE GUILD challenged FROO-FROO (18-
9589) (63-35-4,244) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  Up 29.  LORD EXETER was devastated by FROO-
FROO in a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.  A good try, Lord Exeter, but no seegar.
Froo-Froo is the, among many other good things, the master of slice and dice, top
slasher.  Congratulations.
