                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Have you guys ever stopped to ask yourself, "Do we really want a hand-written
spy report?"  You'd get your newsletters sooner without it, you know, and it isn't
like this is a big role-playing arena.  Think about it.

     Snide Clemens says that Virginia, No Santa had the biggest point gain, 41
points.  And Jello Knuckles had the biggest drop at 34 points.  Same fight.
     There were no avoids, but according to Snide and the clerks at the Commission,
if there HAD been avoids, Nomadic Tribe would have avoided Got It for Christmas.  I
don't know how they figured that, but there it is.  Gad got the most challenges.
     We had fourteen fights, but no standbys, so that's better than it might have
been.  Two challenges.

     RUTH (18-10121) (28-21-0,88) of SHEPHERDS fought CAJETAN (7-6036) (21-23-1,89)
of SENTINELS.  RUTH was vanquished by CAJETAN in a crowd pleasing 5 minute bloody
one-sided fray.  So Cajetan was feeling ruth-less?
     DOPPLEGANGER (81-1382) (21-23-0,48) of MONSTER MANUAL fought COPERNICUS (81-163)
(22-8-1,69) of DARQUE AGES.  DOPPLEGANGER was luckily beaten by COPERNICUS in a
popular 2 minute bloody duel.  Tough, Doppleganger, but Copernicus knows how to
handle monsters.
     FLAVOR TO GO (81-1633) (15-7-0,52) of THE MOTHERSHIP 011 fought HUGH CAPET (81-
690) (23-27-4,83) of DARQUE AGES.  FLAVOR TO GO devastated HUGH CAPET in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute mismatched bout.  Floyd!  I don't think I've seen Floyd here
before, but he is certainly get off to a whiz-bang beginning.
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (44-32-0,158) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought VIRGINIA, NO
SANTA (65-6623) (31-44-1,111) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS.  JELLO KNUCKLES was devastated
by VIRGINIA, NO SANTA in a 2 minute one-sided battle.  Well, that explains the major
point movements, doesn't it?
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (34-32-1,200) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought HEINRIK (81-1257)
(44-44-1,196) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  AZAGHAL was overpowered by HEINRIK in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute one-sided match.  I didn't realize you could hide extra weapons in
your beard.
     EVANGELION (59-2340) (40-33-1,194) of IMPROVED ILLUSION fought JOSH (18-9109)
(32-33-0,201) of SHEPHERDS.  EVANGELION beat JOSH in a popular 3 minute melee.  A
back-and-forth match.  Made me dizzy just watching it.

     LHISSON (29-5456) (46-42-0,198) of MID EARTH fought 1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116)
(59-45-0,152) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  LHISSON overpowered 1977 AMC MATADOR in a popular 1
minute gory uneven duel.  Well, of course!  The Matador was a serious anachronism.
     RAGGEDY ANN (45-4148) (52-27-0,196) of DARQUE FORCES fought BEDDER (18-10043)
(29-31-2,178) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  RAGGEDY ANN was viciously subdued by BEDDER in an
action packed 6 minute gruesome duel.  I don't think I want to know the "hidden
story" behind this one.
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (79-46-4,209) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought OBROJOBO (7-
5869) (34-30-1,179) of SENTINELS.  MOIST TOWELETTE handily defeated OBROJOBO in a 1
minute uneven fight.  Wiped the floor with him, then wiped his face.
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (77-128-2,224) of FOUND IN THE SAND fought THE HYPHEN-DASH
(42-4499) (37-28-1,202) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  SHINY PENNY was overpowered by THE
HYPHEN-DASH in a 1 minute one-sided struggle.  Well, a penny isn't good for much
these days.
     FAN ZHEN (81-1288) (37-27-2,250) of DARQUE AGES fought ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496)
(64-38-0,213) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  FAN ZHEN was demolished by ALMOST PRETTY in a 1
minute mismatched competition.  A pretty win.

The challenges:
     ANZAHANZEK (7-6204) (21-13-0,133) of SENTINELS challenged PINCH BLISTER (18-
9859) (39-49-0,156) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  Up 23.  ANZAHANZEK subdued PINCH BLISTER in
an exciting 5 minute gory Challenge melee.  What *I* say is, to subdue blisters, wear
socks.
     WALLI WEEBLE (21-6935) (41-32-0,193) of NOMADIC TRIBE challenged GAD (18-9239)
(39-47-1,196) of SHEPHERDS.  Up 3.  WALLI WEEBLE was viciously subdued by GAD in a 4
minute Challenge fight.  Good Gad!

For the title:
     THE BRIDE (45-4180) (48-24-2,349) of DARQUE FORCES fought FROO-FROO (18-9589)
(71-36-4,276) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  THE BRIDE vanquished FROO-FROO in a popular 1
minute gory mismatched Title brawl.  Still no way to get a date, Bride.  But
congratulations.
