                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, they say the heat wave is breaking tomorrow.  That's what they always say.
Tomorrow never comes.  But fight day came, and I've got a report.
     Significant point movements, Ruth up 28, Jello Knuckles down 22, same fight.
     Most avoided, nobody.  No avoids were posted.  But if they HAD been, the clerks
in the office are betting that Dragonbane Guild would have been avoiding Darque Ages.
Make of that what you will.
     Most challenged, Evangelion.
     Fifteen fights, three challenges, four standbys.

     OZAWINDIB (7-6212) (23-19-0,88) of SENTINELS fought COPERNICUS (81-163) (26-14-
2,49) of DARQUE AGES.  OZAWINDIB defeated COPERNICUS in an action packed 4 minute
struggle.  Ozzy refused to revolve around Copernicus.  So would I.  Nothing against
Copernicus, but some fixed pattern of movement just sounds boring.
     JOAN OF ARC (81-165) (24-20-0,48) of DARQUE AGES fought R.O.U.S. (107-4) (0-0-
0,50) of Fine Imported Standbys.  JOAN OF ARC defeated R.O.U.S. in a 1 minute duel.
Why are we importing Rats?
     HUGH CAPET (81-690) (26-34-4,30) of DARQUE AGES fought RIRORNI SOLDIER (107-3)
(0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standbys.  HUGH CAPET savagely defeated RIRORNI SOLDIER
in a 2 minute bloody conflict.  You know, I thought that war was over.
     VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-6623) (35-50-1,137) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS fought PINCH
BLISTER (18-9859) (41-57-0,118) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  VIRGINIA, NO SANTA was subdued
by PINCH BLISTER in a 3 minute brawl.  And Virginia, or possibly Santa, has blisters!
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (48-38-0,175) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought RUTH (18-10121)
(34-25-0,134) of SHEPHERDS.  JELLO KNUCKLES was outwaited by RUTH in a unpopular 16
minute brutal conflict.  Was the wait worth it?  I don't know, it did give me time to
eat three hotdogs and drink a beer.
     JOSH (18-9109) (38-37-0,203) of SHEPHERDS fought FAN ZHEN (81-1288) (43-31-
2,202) of DARQUE AGES.  JOSH overpowered FAN ZHEN in an exciting 1 minute one-sided
fight.  That'll teach you to steal sheep, Fan Zhen!

     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (63-51-0,185) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought AZAGHAL (81-
1223) (38-36-1,204) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  1977 AMC MATADOR was overpowered by AZAGHAL
in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  A new role:  Azaghal as a speed bump.
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (37-34-1,210) of SENTINELS fought THE BRIDE (45-4180) (54-28-
2,201) of DARQUE FORCES.  OBROJOBO was vanquished by THE BRIDE in an action packed 1
minute one-sided duel.  Obrojobo said he just wanted to be friends, no commitment.
That always sets of the Bride.
     THE HYPHEN-DASH (42-4499) (42-33-1,202) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought TELGOR (107-27)
(0-0-0,200) of Fine Imported Standbys.  THE HYPHEN-DASH was handily defeated by
TELGOR in a 1 minute uneven melee.  Punctuation takes a knockout punch.
     ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496) (71-41-0,190) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought VERMICIOUS KNID
(107-30) (0-0-0,240) of Fine Imported Standbys.  ALMOST PRETTY devastated VERMICIOUS
KNID in a 3 minute mismatched match.  I hope so!  That Knid is disgusting.
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (89-46-4,338) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought SHINY PENNY
(32-3789) (81-134-2,192) of FOUND IN THE SAND.  MOIST TOWELETTE devastated SHINY
PENNY in a popular 1 minute uneven brawl.  I guess that wasn't copper polish after
all.

The challenges:
     ANZAHANZEK (7-6204) (26-16-0,166) of SENTINELS challenged THE UPRIGHT MAN (10-
5185) (29-33-0,170) of ALASTARIAN IDOL.  Up 4.  ANZAHANZEK vanquished THE UPRIGHT MAN
in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  Quite the iconoclast.
     CAJETAN (7-6036) (25-26-1,155) of SENTINELS challenged POCKET NEWS (19-5364)
(21-16-0,157) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  Up 2.  CAJETAN was savagely defeated by
POCKET NEWS in an exciting 3 minute Challenge melee.  So much (today) for Cajetan's
efforts to regain a winning record.
     GAD (18-9239) (46-50-1,209) of SHEPHERDS challenged EVANGELION (59-2340) (44-39-
1,195) of IMPROVED ILLUSION.  Down 14.  GAD was viciously subdued by EVANGELION in a
crowd pleasing 6 minute Challenge fight.  I understand this fight was carefully
staged, and I will admit that the painted backdrops were a positive addition.  But
the soundtrack was not ideal.  You might want to tinker with that.

For the title:
     FROO-FROO (18-9589) (80-37-4,315) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought HEINRIK (81-1257)
(51-47-1,239) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  FROO-FROO overpowered HEINRIK in a 1 minute one-
sided Title fight.  No change.  Congratulations to Froo-Froo.

Pocket News -- I've read enough of your trash. -- Virginia

Pinch Blister -- Nice fight! -- Ruth

Larkin -- The battles between Gad and Evangelion are planned events.  The fights, for
the most part, have been epic.  Gad has been getting the upper-hand here lately
though, but even losing does not take away the excitement of our battles. -- Master
Darque

     I shall watch them closely.
