                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     And here we have another hot summer day.  Those who get to stay inside an
airconditioned office might call it a "fine" day.  Those of us sitting in the stands
watching the fights, not to mention those down on the sands fighting, have other
words for it, but I'm not allowed to say them in my spy report.
     Snide Clemens, a man or golem I would not trust farther than I could throw an
elephant by the tail, says that Heinrik had a significant point gain of 27 points.
Virginia, No Santa had a significant loss of 22 points.  Whether these are maxima, I
don't know.  Snide also spoke of "most avoided," but since no one made use of avoids,
I'm going to ignore that.  Evangelion was most challenged.
     We had fifteen fights, one challenge (thus Evangelion's "most challenged"
status), and four standbys.

     COPERNICUS (81-163) (26-13-2,55) of DARQUE AGES fought UNEMPLOYED PERSON (107-5)
(0-0-0,70) of Fine Imported Standybs.  COPERNICUS was devastated by UNEMPLOYED PERSON
in a 1 minute one-sided brawl.  Don't ask me why this Person remains Unemployed.  If
you do, I'd have to tell you.
     JOAN OF ARC (81-165) (23-20-0,39) of DARQUE AGES fought RIRORNI SOLDIER (107-3)
(0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standybs.  JOAN OF ARC vanquished RIRORNI SOLDIER in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided fray.  Yes, well, a soldier in battle needs a
slightly different set of skills.
     HUGH CAPET (81-690) (26-33-4,51) of DARQUE AGES fought CAPTURED PIRATE KING
(107-2) (0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standybs.  HUGH CAPET was handily defeated by
CAPTURED PIRATE KING in a 1 minute uneven fight.  Hey, the King was angry, he
expected an easy life lolling around in a dungeon.
     PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (41-56-0,113) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought RUTH (18-10121)
(33-25-0,132) of SHEPHERDS.  PINCH BLISTER was bested by RUTH in a crowd pleasing 6
minute bout.  She was ruthless.
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (47-38-0,163) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought CAJETAN (7-6036)
(25-25-1,160) of SENTINELS.  JELLO KNUCKLES handily defeated CAJETAN in an exciting 5
minute one-sided contest.  A salute to the squishy one.

     VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-6623) (35-49-1,159) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS fought POCKET
NEWS (19-5364) (20-16-0,133) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  VIRGINIA, NO SANTA was
demolished by POCKET NEWS in a 1 minute mismatched match.  Bit of an upset, that one.
     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (62-51-0,172) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought THE BLACKSMITH
(107-22) (0-0-0,181) of Fine Imported Standybs.  1977 AMC MATADOR savagely defeated
THE BLACKSMITH in a popular 2 minute gory melee.  After seeing what the Blacksmith
did to his wheels, I'm not surprised at Matador's savagery.
     JOSH (18-9109) (37-37-0,192) of SHEPHERDS fought ANZAHANZEK (7-6204) (26-15-
0,169) of SENTINELS.  JOSH vanquished ANZAHANZEK in a popular 1 minute one-sided
duel.  And Josh gets a winning record!  Bet you didn't expect to see that again.
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (37-36-1,200) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought THE UPRIGHT MAN (10-
5185) (29-32-0,172) of ALASTARIAN IDOL.  AZAGHAL vanquished THE UPRIGHT MAN in a
popular 1 minute uneven duel.  If a win is all, the Upright Man got nothing today.
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (81-133-2,202) of FOUND IN THE SAND fought THE HYPHEN-DASH
(42-4499) (41-33-1,191) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  SHINY PENNY was defeated by THE HYPHEN-
DASH in an action packed 1 minute melee.  It figures:  you can't get anything for a
penny today.

     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (36-34-1,200) of SENTINELS fought LHISSON (29-5456) (49-48-
0,191) of MID EARTH.  OBROJOBO devastated LHISSON in a crowd pleasing 1 minute
mismatched match.  I think it's some kind of trick involving all those Os.
     HEINRIK (81-1257) (50-47-1,212) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496)
(71-40-0,199) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  HEINRIK demolished ALMOST PRETTY in an action
packed 1 minute mismatched competition.  And Heinrik, already high-ranked, shot up
higher.  This kind of thing happens.
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (88-46-4,318) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought FAN ZHEN (81-
1288) (43-30-2,230) of DARQUE AGES.  MOIST TOWELETTE vanquished FAN ZHEN in a popular
1 minute gory mismatched brawl.  But at least Fan Zhen's face is clean.

The challenge:
     GAD (18-9239) (45-50-1,195) of SHEPHERDS challenged EVANGELION (59-2340) (44-38-
1,203) of IMPROVED ILLUSION.  Up 8.  GAD slimly won victory over EVANGELION in a
crowd pleasing 8 minute Challenge fight.  Good work, Gad.

For the title:
     FROO-FROO (18-9589) (79-37-4,290) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought THE BRIDE (45-4180)
(54-27-2,226) of DARQUE FORCES.  FROO-FROO demolished THE BRIDE in a popular 1 minute
one-sided Title melee.  No surprise there, but we salute the silent Froo-Froo anyway.
