                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Rain, nothing but rain.  Why would anyone (meaning me) give up a quiet life to
come live and work on the shore of the well-named Storm Sea?  But I did it, and I'm
stuck with it, and so you get a spy report.  Besides, if I go back to sleep right
now, I might fall into the same dream--I dreamed I was Olaf Modeen.  Horrible
thought!
     Major point gain, Pinch Blister, 22.  Major drop, Copernicus, 11.
     No avoids, although the clerks assure me that Sentinels were avoiding Color Me
Suave.  Not true.
     Almost Pretty got the most challenges.
     Fifteen fights, three challenge, four fine imported standbys.  We have to keep
importing them because they keep leaving.

     HUGH CAPET (81-690) (23-30-4,54) of DARQUE AGES fought RIRORNI SOLDIER (107-3)
(0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standbys.  HUGH CAPET devastated RIRORNI SOLDIER in an
exciting 1 minute brutal one-sided brawl.  Very good, Hugh.  Though I might just note
that we don't seem to be getting a good quality of Rirorni soldiers these days.  They
used to be fiercer.
     POCKET NEWS (19-5364) (17-13-0,74) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS fought COPERNICUS
(81-163) (23-10-1,77) of DARQUE AGES.  POCKET NEWS vanquished COPERNICUS in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute one-sided fray.  The Science Editor is trying to get my attention,
but I'm ignorning him.
     PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (40-51-0,122) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought FLOYD (107-10)
(0-0-0,150) of Fine Imported Standbys.  PINCH BLISTER won victory over FLOYD in a
crowd pleasing 3 minute bout.  Good work, I guess.  But look at the experience
difference!  Floyd has none at all!
     ANZAHANZEK (7-6204) (23-14-0,141) of SENTINELS fought RUTH (18-10121) (30-22-
0,97) of SHEPHERDS.  ANZAHANZEK savagely defeated RUTH in a crowd pleasing 6 minute
gory conflict.  Not the act of a gentleman.
     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (59-48-0,148) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought FLOYD (107-10)
(0-0-0,150) of Fine Imported Standbys.  1977 AMC MATADOR viciously subdued FLOYD in
an exciting 3 minute bloody battle.  Floyd claims that having to fight twice in one
day exhausted him.

     HEINRIK (81-1257) (46-45-1,190) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought WALLI WEEBLE (21-6935)
(41-35-0,192) of NOMADIC TRIBE.  HEINRIK overpowered WALLI WEEBLE in a crowd pleasing
2 minute bloody one-sided match.  Walli was probably cursed by his name.
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (35-34-1,209) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought VILLAINOUS INFORMER
(107-23) (0-0-0,181) of Fine Imported Standbys.  AZAGHAL overpowered VILLAINOUS
INFORMER in an action packed 2 minute one-sided fight.  Everyone cheered.  The
Informer has no fans and followers.
     THE HYPHEN-DASH (42-4499) (39-29-1,198) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought FAN ZHEN (81-
1288) (38-29-2,193) of DARQUE AGES.  THE HYPHEN-DASH was vanquished by FAN ZHEN in an
action packed 1 minute uneven fight.  Somebody should perhaps have warned Hyphen
about the dangers of dashing in the darque.
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (77-131-2,194) of FOUND IN THE SAND fought JELLO KNUCKLES
(42-4554) (45-34-0,154) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  SHINY PENNY viciously subdued JELLO
KNUCKLES in an action packed 2 minute melee.  Blinding polish on that penny.
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (82-46-4,244) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought LHISSON (29-
5456) (48-43-0,181) of MID EARTH.  MOIST TOWELETTE overpowered LHISSON in a popular 2
minute mismatched brawl.  As smooth a cleaning job as you could wish to see.
     FROO-FROO (18-9589) (73-37-4,216) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought RAGGEDY ANN (45-
4148) (52-30-0,192) of DARQUE FORCES.  FROO-FROO viciously subdued RAGGEDY ANN in a
popular 2 minute bloody duel.  Now Ann has all her raggedy ends "frooed," or in the
more common term, curled.

The challenges:
     CAJETAN (7-6036) (24-23-1,132) of SENTINELS challenged VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-
6623) (33-45-1,157) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS.  Up 25.  CAJETAN slimly won victory over
VIRGINIA, NO SANTA in a 3 minute Challenge brawl.  And this means that Santa is
coming to town, and bringing... smash?
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (35-32-1,203) of SENTINELS challenged ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496)
(66-39-0,207) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Up 4.  OBROJOBO was demolished by ALMOST PRETTY in
a 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  That Suavester is getting prettier by the
minute!
     GAD (18-9239) (41-48-1,213) of SHEPHERDS challenged EVANGELION (59-2340) (42-34-
1,198) of IMPROVED ILLUSION.  Down 15.  GAD was viciously subdued by EVANGELION in a
crowd pleasing 9 minute Challenge fight.  Evangelion is not looking to date a mere
shepherd, Gad.

For the title:
     THE BRIDE (45-4180) (51-24-2,422) of DARQUE FORCES fought JOSH (18-9109) (34-34-
0,225) of SHEPHERDS.  THE BRIDE was overpowered by JOSH in a crowd pleasing 1 minute
one-sided Title fight.  Congratulations.  I hope you're going to take her dancing,
Josh.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Master Darque -- Another incredible bout between Gad and Evangelion.  These are epic
fights and until they turn dull, I'm going to keep the challenges coming! -- Assur

Heinrik -- Thanks.  Back to .500 again.  Hopefully this time I don't go back down. --
Josh

Almost Pretty -- I didn't find that loss even close to pretty.  In fact, I think I
may need a polishing. -- Shiny Penny

1977 AMC Matador -- You are a nice ride for... The Upright Man

Copernicus -- I can only hope this is the start of a wonderful relationship. -- Ruth

Larkin -- Indeed, I am new to Advanced duelling.  I find the plethora of teams who
USED to be active in 107, back when it was Lirin Kiv, that are now listed as my
"teammates," embarrassing.  They aren't here, though I think they're all eligible to
be here--except the ones that got drafted into Primus.  They don't plan to come here,
either--way too many of them!  They're mostly in Free Blades now, and grumbling and
growling a lot, too! -- Pocket News

     If they're grumbling and growling, they can stay away.  We don't need that!
