                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Panting and dripping--we had fourteen hours of drenching rain--I take keyboard
in hand to rattle out a fast spy report.  Oh, yes, it has to be fast.  The rain
delayed things, and now Home Guard is crowding on my heels.  Talk about bad breath!

     We had twelve fights, no challenges, five standbys.  I'm not sure if there were
any actual avoids posted, BUT if so, Color Me Suave as avoided by Dragonbane Guild.

     WONTON NOT NOW (73-6069) (19-13-1,49) of PALINDROMES fought CAPTURED PIRATE KING
(107-2) (0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standbys.  WONTON NOT NOW was demolished by
CAPTURED PIRATE KING in a 1 minute one-sided brawl.  For this embarrassing
misfortune, Wonton lost 20 points.
     MAULI LAMA (7-6292) (18-19-1,81) of SENTINELS fought OUT FOR A DUCK (83-275)
(16-15-0,35) of BAD SIGNS.  MAULI LAMA overcame OUT FOR A DUCK in an exciting 3
minute contest.  The Sentinels talk of roasting a duck on the beach tonight.
     PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (48-76-0,157) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought THE UPRIGHT MAN
(10-5185) (38-51-0,173) of ALASTARIAN IDOL.  PINCH BLISTER defeated THE UPRIGHT MAN
in an exciting 5 minute bloody match.  Pinch got 16 points out of this win.
     RUTH (18-10121) (47-39-0,184) of SHEPHERDS fought THE BLACKSMITH (107-22) (0-0-
0,181) of Fine Imported Standbys.  RUTH was overpowered by THE BLACKSMITH in an
action packed 4 minute one-sided fight.  Oops.
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (46-46-1,202) of SENTINELS fought JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554)
(57-55-0,171) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  OBROJOBO vanquished JELLO KNUCKLES in an action
packed 1 minute one-sided duel.  Not a day for jello.  Something warmer, maybe.
Jellied consume'?
     LUC STARWALKER (58-6100) (49-44-0,184) of NEXT GENERATION fought IMPRISONED SPY
(107-9) (0-0-0,170) of Fine Imported Standbys.  LUC STARWALKER was overpowered by
IMPRISONED SPY in a 1 minute uneven melee.  Guess who's imprisoned NOW!

     ARUGULA (3-7180) (33-30-2,183) of VEGGIES fought 1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (75-
65-0,192) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  ARUGULA was beaten by 1977 AMC MATADOR in a crowd
pleasing 4 minute brawl.  I knew it was a mistake to let Matador drive over the lawn
when it was so wet.  Argula got trampled into the mud.
     SHINY PENNY (32-3789) (96-146-2,206) of FOUND IN THE SAND fought ARENAMASTER
SANDAVOL (107-28) (0-0-0,200) of Fine Imported Standbys.  SHINY PENNY vanquished
ARENAMASTER SANDAVOL in a 1 minute mismatched fight.  Good work there.  Arenamasters
need to be vanquished now and then, to keep them from getting swelled heads.
     ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496) (90-48-0,216) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought POCKET NEWS (19-
5364) (33-30-0,191) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  ALMOST PRETTY subdued POCKET NEWS in a
crowd pleasing 4 minute competition.  And what news hides behind that simple
statement?
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (52-43-1,227) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought VIRGINIA, NO SANTA
(65-6623) (44-68-1,208) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS.  AZAGHAL vanquished VIRGINIA, NO
SANTA in a popular 1 minute gory mismatched brawl.  I've often thought, well,
sometimes thought, that Azaghal's name is like a saw blade.  I believe Virgina found
a resemblance there, too.
     JOSH (18-9109) (50-52-0,226) of SHEPHERDS fought THE BLACKSMITH (107-22) (0-0-
0,181) of Fine Imported Standbys.  JOSH vanquished THE BLACKSMITH in an exciting 2
minute gory uneven battle.  Revenge for his teammate Ruth?

For the title:
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (112-49-4,316) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought GAD (18-9239)
(64-59-1,216) of SHEPHERDS.  MOIST TOWELETTE was bested by GAD in a crowd pleasing 1
minute Title fight.  And it's good to see Gad on top again.  Not that we have
anything against a Moist Towelette when needed, but Gad may write a column, which may
then be eaten by the voracious and unprincipled hal.  Congratulations, Gad.
