                       Reflections by the Champion of the Horn

     I'm back from Primus.  Assur says I might not be long for Storm Rock, but for
this split, at least, I'm here.  I'd love to sit on the throne for the entire split,
but I suspect that will not happen.  But I'm sure I'll be here more than a couple
times. -- Gad

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, hmm, Debby Tonte did the preliminary notes.  She watched the fight.  I
watched her.  If there are mistakes, you can figure out why without any prompting
from me.  But just to give you a hint, we had a major storm, even for this stormy
area.  Thunder, lightning, torrential rain, dangerous winds.  Very exciting.

     Significant point movements:  Shiny Penny, up 33.  Pinch Blister down 28.
Different fights.
     Next Generation was avoided by Sentinels.  What's wrong with another generation?
     Twelve fights, no challenges, three standbys.

     DIRTY DIAPERS (38-5071) (15-6-0,51) of BASH BROS CHILDREN fought UNEMPLOYED
PERSON (107-5) (0-0-0,70) of Fine Imported Standbys.  DIRTY DIAPERS was demolished by
UNEMPLOYED PERSON in a 1 minute one-sided brawl.  Little did any of us know that the
Unemployed Person used to be a nanny and knew all about diapers!
     REDDIG (81-1838) (24-9-0,80) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought WONTON NOT NOW (73-6069)
(16-9-0,67) of PALINDROMES.  REDDIG was handily defeated by WONTON NOT NOW in a 1
minute one-sided contest.  No wontons for Reddig.
     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (71-62-0,156) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought JAKLAK (81-
1430) (30-24-0,117) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  1977 AMC MATADOR overpowered JAKLAK in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided match.  Are we surprised?  I don't think so.
     PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (47-70-0,176) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought ARUGULA (3-7180)
(27-29-2,140) of VEGGIES.  PINCH BLISTER was overpowered by ARUGULA in a popular 2
minute uneven match.  You can see why the Blister dropped.
     THE UPRIGHT MAN (10-5185) (35-47-0,164) of ALASTARIAN IDOL fought CHEATING
MANAGER (107-6) (0-0-0,130) of Fine Imported Standbys.  THE UPRIGHT MAN won victory
over CHEATING MANAGER in a popular 1 minute duel.  I should hope so!
     JOSH (18-9109) (44-51-0,204) of SHEPHERDS fought OZAWINDIB (7-6212) (35-24-
0,169) of SENTINELS.  JOSH vanquished OZAWINDIB in a popular 2 minute uneven duel.
It's the names.  "Josh" is so much easier for the announcers.

     RUTH (18-10121) (46-33-0,198) of SHEPHERDS fought RIRORNI CAPTAIN (107-26) (0-0-
0,200) of Fine Imported Standbys.  RUTH was devastated by RIRORNI CAPTAIN in a 2
minute one-sided competition.  He has that affect on many women.
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (91-144-2,209) of FOUND IN THE SAND fought ALMOST PRETTY
(42-4496) (86-45-0,196) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  SHINY PENNY devastated ALMOST PRETTY in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided duel.  No one ever said things would be fair:  to
those going up, more points are given, and to those sliding off the high spots, more
are taken away.
     POCKET NEWS (19-5364) (29-27-0,206) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS fought VIRGINIA, NO
SANTA (65-6623) (43-62-1,209) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS.  POCKET NEWS overpowered
VIRGINIA, NO SANTA in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  Does this mean there IS a Santa,
or just that we're going to hear all about the lack?
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (105-49-4,241) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought OBROJOBO (7-
5869) (44-44-1,197) of SENTINELS.  MOIST TOWELETTE overpowered OBROJOBO in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute mismatched duel.  Did you know that if you wipe someone's face hard
enough with one of those things, you can wipe it RIGHT OFF?  Weird.
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (55-50-0,211) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought ANZAHANZEK (7-
6204) (32-27-0,191) of SENTINELS.  JELLO KNUCKLES subdued ANZAHANZEK in an exciting 1
minute melee.  I've heard of jello with fruit in it, but jello with horseshoes?

For the title:
     GAD (18-9239) (58-58-1,263) of SHEPHERDS fought AZAGHAL (81-1223) (49-42-1,248)
of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  GAD viciously subdued AZAGHAL in a crowd pleasing 4 minute
gruesome Title fight.  Good work, Gad.  You get the title, you KEEP it.
