                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Who knows about the facts?  Debby Tonte pulled them together, complaining all
the time:  she wanted to be on her way to the Bahamas for a vacation with surf and
sun.  I can sympathize with that.  Surf, I can take it or leave it, but sun... I'll
take it.  We've got snow falling right now.
     She says that The Hyphen-Dash rose fourteen points, Obrojobo dropped ten points,
all on the same fight, and this is significant.  Don't ask either of us how it's
significant.
     If there was avoiding, Sentinels was doing it and Color Me Suave was receiving
it.  If there were challenges, none of them went through.
     Nine fights, no challenges, and NO standbys.  This is good!  Eighteen active
warriors here.  They tell me that Andorak can't match that, and Darkholm has to pull
in a lot of Hoffas.  Ha.

     OZAWINDIB (7-6212) (29-21-0,118) of SENTINELS fought ARUGULA (3-7180) (25-20-
2,93) of VEGGIES.  OZAWINDIB defeated ARUGULA in an exciting 6 minute fight.  It was
alarming to watch.  Ozawindib actually started to EAT Argula during the fight!
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (50-44-0,175) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought CAJETAN (7-6036)
(27-32-1,145) of SENTINELS.  JELLO KNUCKLES viciously subdued CAJETAN in an action
packed 6 minute gruesome fight.  Cajetan was later heard to mutter that he had been
"slimed."
     THE UPRIGHT MAN (10-5185) (32-39-0,172) of ALASTARIAN IDOL fought PINCH BLISTER
(18-9859) (43-63-0,165) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  THE UPRIGHT MAN viciously subdued PINCH
BLISTER in an action packed 2 minute melee.  No pinching.
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (43-39-1,203) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought POCKET NEWS (19-5364)
(25-20-0,194) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  AZAGHAL bested POCKET NEWS in a popular 1
minute competition.  Is the News a dragon?  Check in next turn to find out.

     ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496) (78-42-0,210) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought VIRGINIA, NO
SANTA (65-6623) (38-56-1,182) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS.  ALMOST PRETTY devastated
VIRGINIA, NO SANTA in a 2 minute one-sided duel.  There's probably a hidden story in
this, but it's hidden from me.
     RUTH (18-10121) (39-29-0,186) of SHEPHERDS fought ANZAHANZEK (7-6204) (30-20-
0,189) of SENTINELS.  RUTH narrowly defeated ANZAHANZEK in an exciting 11 minute
bloody fight.  Eleven minutes?  Looked more like a broad fight to me, not a narrow
one.
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (41-38-1,182) of SENTINELS fought THE HYPHEN-DASH (42-4499)
(43-40-1,171) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  OBROJOBO lost to THE HYPHEN-DASH in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute brawl.  This was, you will remember, a fight which produced
"significant" point movements.
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (86-138-2,202) of FOUND IN THE SAND fought 1977 AMC
MATADOR (42-4116) (66-56-0,171) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  SHINY PENNY vanquished 1977 AMC
MATADOR in an exciting 1 minute gory uneven battle.  Uneven, I can believe, but I
wasn't excited by it.  Maybe I blinked at the wrong minute, or the falling snow
obscurred some critical move?

For the title:
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (96-47-4,222) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought HEINRIK (81-
1257) (56-50-1,218) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  MOIST TOWELETTE was devastated by HEINRIK in
a 1 minute mismatched Title fight.  *I* wouldn't have called it "mismatched," but I
don't make those judgments.  Good work, Heinrik.  Give us a couple of words from the
top, eh?  Or maybe a few more than two.
