                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Well, Zontani was full of bits and pieces today.  If six people die in duels
this week, the city will perish.  Make that "EXACTLY six."  As opposed to five and a
half, maybe?
     Significant point movements:  Hugh Capet up 44, Ozawindib down 38.  Same fight.
     Most avoided, nobody.  But if anyone HAD been avoided, it would have been Color
Me Suave by Sentinels.  Or so the clerks in the office claim.  They make up stuff
like this when there aren't any facts.
     Most challenged, The Upright Man.  Good posture can be challenging, or need
challenging, or something.  Makes a lot of us embarrassed.
     Fifteen fights, two challenges, three standbys.  One fight was action-packed,
and none were exciting.

     COPERNICUS (81-163) (26-15-2,56) of DARQUE AGES fought RIRORNI SOLDIER (107-3)
(0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standbys.  COPERNICUS viciously butchered RIRORNI SOLDIER
in a 2 minute bloody brawl.  Gotta watch out for that, Copernicus.  Rirorni Soldiers
don't grow on trees, you know.
     JOAN OF ARC (81-165) (25-20-0,54) of DARQUE AGES fought RIRORNI SOLDIER (107-3)
(0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standbys.  JOAN OF ARC overpowered RIRORNI SOLDIER in an
action packed 1 minute uneven struggle.  Well, at least this one survived.
     OZAWINDIB (7-6212) (24-19-0,92) of SENTINELS fought HUGH CAPET (81-690) (27-34-
4,36) of DARQUE AGES.  OZAWINDIB was handily defeated by HUGH CAPET in a 3 minute
one-sided conflict.  Huh, no wonder this resulted in big point movements!
     ANZAHANZEK (7-6204) (27-16-0,178) of SENTINELS fought RUTH (18-10121) (35-25-
0,162) of SHEPHERDS.  ANZAHANZEK devastated RUTH in a crowd pleasing 2 minute gory
one-sided battle.  Why was the crowd pleased?  A little more devastation, and we
might have been Ruth-less!
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (48-39-0,153) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought TELGOR (107-27)
(0-0-0,200) of Fine Imported Standbys.  JELLO KNUCKLES was demolished by TELGOR in a
crowd pleasing 2 minute mismatched match.  Adding the marshmallows to those knuckles
was probably a mistake.
     POCKET NEWS (19-5364) (22-16-0,164) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS fought PINCH BLISTER
(18-9859) (42-57-0,134) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  POCKET NEWS was luckily beaten by PINCH
BLISTER in a popular 4 minute gory melee.  And what, we wonder, will Pocket find to
report about this match?

     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (63-52-0,180) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought VIRGINIA, NO
SANTA (65-6623) (35-51-1,123) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS.  1977 AMC MATADOR slimly won
victory over VIRGINIA, NO SANTA in a 2 minute duel.  Was anyone surprised?
     HEINRIK (81-1257) (51-48-1,201) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought FAN ZHEN (81-1288) (43-
32-2,191) of DARQUE AGES.  HEINRIK vanquished FAN ZHEN in a 1 minute one-sided duel.
The value of experience, no doubt.
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (81-135-2,195) of FOUND IN THE SAND fought THE HYPHEN-DASH
(42-4499) (42-34-1,190) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  SHINY PENNY handily defeated THE HYPHEN-
DASH in a 1 minute uneven melee.  A word of warning:  Never play tiddlywinks against
a shiny penny.  Especially if all YOU have is a hyphen.
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (39-36-1,217) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought ALMOST PRETTY (42-
4496) (72-41-0,208) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  AZAGHAL was devastated by ALMOST PRETTY in a
crowd pleasing 2 minute mismatched match.  Some people say she's beautiful when she's
angry.
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (90-46-4,347) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought OBROJOBO (7-
5869) (37-35-1,198) of SENTINELS.  MOIST TOWELETTE devastated OBROJOBO in a popular 1
minute uneven brawl.  Moist just... wiped his face right off!  Horrible!
     JOSH (18-9109) (39-37-0,220) of SHEPHERDS fought WALLI WEEBLE (21-6935) (41-36-
0,182) of NOMADIC TRIBE.  JOSH viciously subdued WALLI WEEBLE in a popular 2 minute
brutal fight.  Does this mean that Walli Weeble wobbled?

The challenges:
     CAJETAN (7-6036) (25-27-1,154) of SENTINELS challenged THE UPRIGHT MAN (10-5185)
(29-34-0,161) of ALASTARIAN IDOL.  Up 7.  CAJETAN luckily beat THE UPRIGHT MAN in a 2
minute brutal Challenge melee.  Yes, one of Nomad's guys challenged!  Maybe he WILL
write a personal next time?
     GAD (18-9239) (46-51-1,197) of SHEPHERDS challenged EVANGELION (59-2340) (45-39-
1,206) of IMPROVED ILLUSION.  Up 9.  GAD bested EVANGELION in a crowd pleasing 6
minute gruesome Challenge fight.  The latest installment in a long-running contest.

And for the title:
     FROO-FROO (18-9589) (81-37-4,327) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought THE BRIDE (45-4180)
(55-28-2,216) of DARQUE FORCES.  FROO-FROO defeated THE BRIDE in a crowd pleasing 1
minute Title duel.  Froo-Froo defeated the Bride AND she said the bridal gown armor
was tacky.  What can repay this insult?  Perhaps we'll find out next time.
