                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, it's raining, it's windy, it's darned cold.  This is, after all, Storm
Rock, on the shore of the aptly named Storm Sea.  And I chose to come here, so I've
got no ground for complaint, right?  Right.  I have to remind myself of that from
time to time.  Usually as I'm about to start a spy report.  Hey, so I'm lazy, sue me.

     Significant point movements:  Pocket News up thirty-three.  1977 Amc Matador,
down twenty-two.  Same fight.
     One challenge.  No avoids, despite what the clerks claim.  They're still
nattering on about Sentinels avoiding Color Me Suave.  Not happening.
     Fifteen fights, one challenge (yes, it's Gad and Evangeline), three standbys.

     COPERNICUS (81-163) (27-17-3,32) of DARQUE AGES fought RIRORNI SOLDIER (107-3)
(0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standbys.  COPERNICUS was demolished by RIRORNI SOLDIER
in an exciting 1 minute one-sided bout.  Who let the Soldier bring that horse into
the arena?
     HUGH CAPET (81-690) (29-35-4,47) of DARQUE AGES fought RIRORNI SOLDIER (107-3)
(0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standbys.  HUGH CAPET viciously subdued RIRORNI SOLDIER
in a popular 1 minute brutal brawl.  Ah.  Deprived of his horse, the Rirorni Soldier
is not so tough, eh?
     OZAWINDIB (7-6212) (26-20-0,86) of SENTINELS fought JOAN OF ARC (81-165) (27-21-
0,63) of DARQUE AGES.  OZAWINDIB was overcome by JOAN OF ARC in a crowd pleasing 2
minute bout.  Has the Commission fixed this, or is Joan still running sneaky?
     THE BRIDE (45-4180) (55-31-2,176) of DARQUE FORCES fought VIRGINIA, NO SANTA
(65-6623) (35-54-1,136) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS.  THE BRIDE overpowered VIRGINIA, NO
SANTA in a crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided duel.  And, comparing records and ranks,
is anyone surprised?

     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (49-41-0,159) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought THE UPRIGHT MAN
(10-5185) (29-37-0,153) of ALASTARIAN IDOL.  JELLO KNUCKLES was bested by THE UPRIGHT
MAN in a crowd pleasing 2 minute bloody bout.  Jello is now the Horizontal Man.
     HEINRIK (81-1257) (53-49-1,205) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought CAJETAN (7-6036) (27-
28-1,175) of SENTINELS.  HEINRIK devastated CAJETAN in an exciting 1 minute brutal
mismatched conflict.  Not an even match, but that's what happens in life, and in the
arena if you don't challenge and avoid.
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (40-38-1,208) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought PINCH BLISTER (18-
9859) (43-59-0,161) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  AZAGHAL savagely defeated PINCH BLISTER in
an exciting 4 minute brutal fight.  Another such case.
     THE HYPHEN-DASH (42-4499) (43-36-1,181) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought JOSH (18-9109)
(41-38-0,202) of SHEPHERDS.  THE HYPHEN-DASH was overpowered by JOSH in a 1 minute
uneven match.  A little closer here.

     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (65-53-0,185) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought POCKET NEWS
(19-5364) (23-18-0,158) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  1977 AMC MATADOR was vanquished by
POCKET NEWS in a 2 minute uneven fight.  Thus causing all those point movements.
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (83-136-2,202) of FOUND IN THE SAND fought ANZAHANZEK (7-
6204) (29-17-0,188) of SENTINELS.  SHINY PENNY overpowered ANZAHANZEK in an action
packed 1 minute gruesome uneven melee.  Experience makes a difference.
     ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496) (75-41-0,240) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought WALLI WEEBLE (21-
6935) (42-38-0,200) of NOMADIC TRIBE.  ALMOST PRETTY viciously subdued WALLI WEEBLE
in a crowd pleasing 3 minute match.  I heard Walli make a slighting comment about her
looks.  That'd do it.
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (93-46-4,381) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought THE BLACKSMITH
(107-22) (0-0-0,181) of Fine Imported Standbys.  MOIST TOWELETTE demolished THE
BLACKSMITH in a 2 minute mismatched competition.  Ah, good, I wondered where the
other standby had gone.
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (39-36-1,223) of SENTINELS fought RUTH (18-10121) (36-27-
0,191) of SHEPHERDS.  OBROJOBO vanquished RUTH in a popular 1 minute gory mismatched
brawl.  Remember:  challenge and avoid to prevent this kind of mismatch!

The challenge:
     GAD (18-9239) (48-52-1,196) of SHEPHERDS challenged EVANGELION (59-2340) (46-41-
1,206) of IMPROVED ILLUSION.  Up 10.  GAD viciously subdued EVANGELION in a crowd
pleasing 5 minute Challenge fight.  Yet another chapter in a long tale.

For the title:
     FROO-FROO (18-9589) (84-37-4,370) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought FAN ZHEN (81-1288)
(45-33-2,215) of DARQUE AGES.  FROO-FROO demolished FAN ZHEN in a popular 1 minute
one-sided Title melee.  And our congratulations to the more experienced, and
victorious, Froo-Froo.  Sometimes being old is good.  So they tell me, anyway.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Mr Matador -- Hey!  I won that one! -- Walli

Joan of Arc -- Hey!  Where'd you go?  I know you were there, on the sands.  And I
beat you.  I SAW you!  But you aren't listed in the rankings.  I thought they caught
all the local ghosts.  Maybe it was that whole burning thing?  You're a little less
solid afterwards? -- Ozzy

     'Tis the season for stealth, apparently.

Pinch Blister -- I think I might have gotten a blister on my sword hand.  Lots of
swings will do that to a guy.  The things I do for a win... -- Cajetan

Fan Zhen -- Not so good that time.  There is a line in this arena.  Below it I can
manage.  Above it, I think I'm a bit overmatched.  Give me another 40 fights or so.
-- Anzahanzek

     Okay.

The Bride -- The win was a very nice gift you gave me.  But I always thought that
when you go to a wedding the bride gets the gift. -- Obrojobo

     This was the darque version.

Ruth -- Most challenged, but mine got through!  Lucky me! -- Azaghal

Josh -- I will not complain if you leave for Primus.  And may I name a few others you
could take with you? -- Azaghal, the not-yet-ready-for-Primus
