                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     So, here we are, on a day that started out sunny but is now looking just a
little suspicious.  Well, it IS April.  April showers, and all that.  Next month,
flowers, right?
     Today, our featured team is the Shepherds and their associates.  Why?  Because I
have reason to believe they will notice.  Not everyone does.  And we start with Josh!
He's got the biggest point gain at 17 points.  The biggest drop, if you really want
to know, went to Purple Worm after a loss to a Rat of Unusual Size.
     Nobody was most challenged, nobody was most avoided.
     We had fifteen fights, an angular number, neither round nor square.  Two
challenges, four standbys.

     COPERNICUS (81-163) (23-8-1,71) of DARQUE AGES fought RUTH (18-10121) (28-22-
0,78) of SHEPHERDS.  COPERNICUS was overcome by RUTH in a crowd pleasing 5 minute
bout.  Ruth told me--I interviewed her after the fight--that she just got TIRED of
Copernicus talking about the movement of the earth around the sun, or some such
nonsense as that.  She told me that anyone with a little practical experience could
see that it revolves around the sheep.
     PURPLE WORM (81-1775) (20-21-1,82) of MONSTER MANUAL fought R.O.U.S. (107-4) (0-
0-0,50) of Fine Improted Standbys.  PURPLE WORM was overpowered by R.O.U.S. in a
crowd pleasing 4 minute one-sided duel.  And for this loss, Purple was justly dropped
down in the ranks.
     CAJETAN (7-6036) (22-23-1,100) of SENTINELS fought HUGH CAPET (81-690) (23-28-
4,59) of DARQUE AGES.  CAJETAN beat HUGH CAPET in a 3 minute bloody conflict.  Making
Hugh's age really darque today.

     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (44-33-0,124) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought IMPRISONED SPY
(107-9) (0-0-0,170) of Fine Improted Standbys.  JELLO KNUCKLES was devastated by
IMPRISONED SPY in a 1 minute one-sided battle.  Another victorious standby!
     PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (39-50-0,144) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought EVIL INPUTTER
(107-7) (0-0-0,110) of Fine Improted Standbys.  PINCH BLISTER savagely defeated EVIL 
INPUTTER in a crowd pleasing 3 minute match.  Ah, much better.  We don't want to see
the standbys get notions above themselves.
     ANZAHANZEK (7-6204) (22-13-0,153) of SENTINELS fought VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-
6623) (32-44-1,152) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS.  ANZAHANZEK overcame VIRGINIA, NO SANTA
in a popular 2 minute bout.  Straighten me out here, does this mean that Anzahanzek
played a santa-ly role for Virginia?  A big load of skills, perhaps?  Ho ho ho.
     FROO-FROO (18-9589) (71-37-4,196) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought OBROJOBO (7-5869)
(34-31-1,180) of SENTINELS.  FROO-FROO overpowered OBROJOBO in a 1 minute one-sided
fight.  Yes, well, all that froo can be confusing.
     FAN ZHEN (81-1288) (37-28-2,197) of DARQUE AGES fought 1977 AMC MATADOR (42-
4116) (59-46-0,155) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  FAN ZHEN viciously subdued 1977 AMC MATADOR
in an action packed 2 minute fight.  Sugar in the gas tank?  Why should that be BAD?
What if Matador has a sweet tooth?

     RAGGEDY ANN (45-4148) (52-28-0,185) of DARQUE FORCES fought JOSH (18-9109) (32-
34-0,197) of SHEPHERDS.  RAGGEDY ANN lost to JOSH in an action packed 1 minute duel.
A rousing, and rising, victory for Josh.  If you're nice to him, Raggedy, maybe he'll
offer you some colorful patches for you coat.
     LHISSON (29-5456) (47-42-0,204) of MID EARTH fought AZAGHAL (81-1223) (34-33-
1,188) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  LHISSON slimly won victory over AZAGHAL in a popular 3
minute gruesome competition.  If Lhisson was a dragon, Azaghal would be in trouble.
     THE HYPHEN-DASH (42-4499) (38-28-1,213) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought RIRORNI COOK
(107-24) (0-0-0,181) of Fine Improted Standbys.  THE HYPHEN-DASH overpowered RIRORNI
COOK in a 1 minute one-sided struggle.  Ah!  That puts the standbys at 2-2.  That'll
do.
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (80-46-4,217) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought SHINY PENNY
(32-3789) (77-129-2,193) of FOUND IN THE SAND.  MOIST TOWELETTE demolished SHINY
PENNY in a 1 minute mismatched competition.  Chemical attack!  Whatever was on that
Towelette, it caused a sudden and dire tarnishing of our Shiny Penny.
     HEINRIK (81-1257) (45-44-1,212) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought WALLI WEEBLE (21-6935)
(41-33-0,190) of NOMADIC TRIBE.  HEINRIK viciously subdued WALLI WEEBLE in a popular
2 minute gory contest.  Naturally.  Walli weebled when he should have waffed.

The challenges:
     EVANGELION (59-2340) (41-33-1,203) of IMPROVED ILLUSION challenged GAD (18-9239)
(40-47-1,208) of SHEPHERDS.  Up 5.  EVANGELION viciously subdued GAD in a popular 7
minute gruesome Challenge match.  Two-three for Assurnasirbanipal's warriors today.
At least you made her sweat for it, Gad.  Nobody should have it too easy.

For the title:
     THE BRIDE (45-4180) (49-24-2,378) of DARQUE FORCES challenged ALMOST PRETTY (42-
4496) (65-38-0,229) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Down 149.  THE BRIDE devastated ALMOST PRETTY
in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge Title fight.  This Bride is a real stickler.  Or
something.  No one satisfies her.
