                       Reflections by the Champion of the Horn

     So after our fight, I asked Assur to look up my records against Almost Pretty.
It is more than pretty...  if your manager is Suave.  For myself, it is a very ugly
record.  She has beaten me more times than I'd care to admit!  So a great win for me.
     Heinrik gets my challenge, the youngest warrior available.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, it's hot, it's humid, the lightning pigeons are crashing into buildings,
and things are generally screwed up all across Ghea.
     We had fourteen fights, which means twenty-six people and two Rats of Unusual
Size out there sweating on the sands.  Three challenges.  Nobody was avoided,
Heinrick got the most challenges.

     COPERNICUS (81-163) (23-13-1,42) of DARQUE AGES fought R.O.U.S. (107-4) (0-0-
0,50) of Fine Imported Standbys.  COPERNICUS defeated R.O.U.S. in a 2 minute duel.
Rat number one.
     HUGH CAPET (81-690) (25-31-4,48) of DARQUE AGES fought R.O.U.S. (107-4) (0-0-
0,50) of Fine Imported Standbys.  HUGH CAPET slimly lost to R.O.U.S. in a crowd
pleasing 5 minute bloody bout.  Rat number two.
     POCKET NEWS (19-5364) (19-14-0,121) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS fought RUTH (18-
10121) (31-24-0,119) of SHEPHERDS.  POCKET NEWS was unbelievably bested by RUTH in an
exciting 3 minute brutal contest.  Why is this unbelievable?  I'm not getting that.
     VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-6623) (34-47-1,151) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS fought PINCH
BLISTER (18-9859) (41-53-0,126) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  VIRGINIA, NO SANTA defeated
PINCH BLISTER in an exciting 3 minute bloody match.  Only moderately exciting,
really.
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (46-36-0,163) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought ANZAHANZEK (7-
6204) (25-15-0,143) of SENTINELS.  JELLO KNUCKLES was overpowered by ANZAHANZEK in a
popular 1 minute uneven match.  This fight caused the most point movements,
Anzahanzek up 26, Jello down 17.

     FAN ZHEN (81-1288) (40-30-2,199) of DARQUE AGES fought 1977 AMC MATADOR (42-
4116) (62-48-0,171) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  FAN ZHEN savagely defeated 1977 AMC MATADOR
in an action packed 2 minute gory duel.  That Matador seems to need a tune-up.
     ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496) (68-40-0,191) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought CAJETAN (7-6036)
(25-24-1,153) of SENTINELS.  ALMOST PRETTY vanquished CAJETAN in an action packed 1
minute uneven duel.  Almost pretty, but definitely successful.
     THE HYPHEN-DASH (42-4499) (40-31-1,191) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought THE BRIDE (45-
4180) (51-27-2,188) of DARQUE FORCES.  THE HYPHEN-DASH was devastated by THE BRIDE in
a 1 minute one-sided competition.  If the Bride marries him, will she hyphenate her
name?
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (35-34-1,198) of SENTINELS fought THE UPRIGHT MAN (10-5185)
(28-30-0,164) of ALASTARIAN IDOL.  OBROJOBO vanquished THE UPRIGHT MAN in an exciting
1 minute mismatched fight.  Now he's the Horizontal Man.
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (85-46-4,289) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought LHISSON (29-
5456) (49-45-0,194) of MID EARTH.  MOIST TOWELETTE overpowered LHISSON in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute mismatched match.  All in the interests of cleanliness, you know.
     FROO-FROO (18-9589) (76-37-4,254) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought AZAGHAL (81-1223)
(37-35-1,213) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  FROO-FROO devastated AZAGHAL in a 1 minute one-
sided contest.  How not surprising.

The challenges:
     EVANGELION (59-2340) (43-36-1,191) of IMPROVED ILLUSION challenged GAD (18-9239)
(43-49-1,227) of SHEPHERDS.  Up 36.  EVANGELION was defeated by GAD in a 2 minute
Challenge duel.  Natural enough.
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (79-132-2,202) of FOUND IN THE SAND challenged RAGGEDY ANN
(45-4148) (52-33-0,193) of DARQUE FORCES.  Down 9.  SHINY PENNY viciously subdued
RAGGEDY ANN in a 2 minute Challenge battle.  Okay.

For the title, following through on his statement in his column, JOSH (18-9109) (37-
34-0,288) of SHEPHERDS challenged HEINRIK (81-1257) (48-46-1,215) of CLAN LONGBEARD.
Down 73.  JOSH was devastated by HEINRIK in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge Title
fight.  Our congratulations to Heinrik.
