     And down goes one of the experienced Suavers.  Almost Pretty was almost a tough
fight.  Almost.  This does, at least, mean that I have done one better than Anvil
Ironfist did on turn two - I have successfully defended my throne at least once.
Having defeated one Waste, I now more than likely get another in the Matador.  I like
my chances, but those extra 49FE could give him an edge.  Perhaps.  I can only hope
that Assur's prediction of a bit of "ruling the throne" comes true.  Actually, it
isn't really about hope.  I can do more than just hope.  I intend to do my best to
make sure it happens.

I guess we will see if that happens, but for now I remain 

Azaghal
Champion of the Horn

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     I had a he-- a heck of a time getting the Hands to the desk for this, so I'm
probably going to rush through it instead of giving it the attention it deserves.
But better me than Novgorodny Vir.

     Eight fights, no challenges, two standbys.  Significant point movements
(according to Vir):  Wonton Not Now up 19, Ozawandib down 5.  Different fights.
Sentinels avoided Color Me Suave, and who can blame them?  Obviously nobody was most
challenged.

     DIRTY DIAPERS (38-5071) (17-13-0,21) of BASH BROS CHILDREN fought R.O.U.S. (107-
4) (0-0-0,50) of Fine Imported Standbys.  DIRTY DIAPERS was vanquished by R.O.U.S. in
a 1 minute uneven fight.  R. brought a secret weapon to the fight but, seriously, I
don't think I should talk about it.  I wish I hadn't seen it!
     WONTON NOT NOW (73-6069) (24-19-1,55) of PALINDROMES fought UNEMPLOYED PERSON
(107-5) (0-0-0,70) of Fine Imported Standbys.  WONTON NOT NOW handily defeated
UNEMPLOYED PERSON in a 1 minute uneven melee.  Thus demonstrating why the Person is
Unemployed.
     ARUGULA (3-7180) (34-40-2,177) of VEGGIES fought MAULI LAMA (7-6292) (24-20-
2,158) of SENTINELS.  ARUGULA overpowered MAULI LAMA in a popular 1 minute mismatched
brawl.  That's the trouble with Lamas, they get so enlightened, they forget the
lessons of their childhood:  eat your veggies!
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (51-49-1,202) of SENTINELS fought PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (52-
83-0,171) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  OBROJOBO devastated PINCH BLISTER in a popular 1
minute bloody uneven brawl.  Talk about a pinch!
     VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-6623) (49-74-1,188) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS fought
OZAWINDIB (7-6212) (36-30-0,187) of SENTINELS.  VIRGINIA, NO SANTA defeated OZAWINDIB
in an exciting 3 minute fight.  This is NOT what Ozzie wanted for Christmas.
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (62-61-0,181) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought POCKET NEWS (19-
5364) (38-36-0,208) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  JELLO KNUCKLES was overpowered by
POCKET NEWS in a 1 minute mismatched duel.  Looks like ol' Jello wasn't ready for a
hard-hitting reporter, eh?
     ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496) (97-52-0,196) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought THE UPRIGHT MAN
(10-5185) (41-59-0,201) of ALASTARIAN IDOL.  ALMOST PRETTY subdued THE UPRIGHT MAN in
an exciting 1 minute melee.  Uprightness is probably overrated.

For the title, our speaking Champion AZAGHAL (81-1223) (58-45-1,265) of DRAGONBANE
GUILD fought 1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (82-69-0,218) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  AZAGHAL
devastated 1977 AMC MATADOR in a 2 minute mismatched Title fight.  And the title
remains Azaghal's.  Congratulations!

Jello Knuckles -- Azaghal beats you and gets the throne.  I beat you and get a few
points.  How is that fair?  I gotta work on my timing. -- Obrojobo

Pinch Blister  -- That blister thing has to hurt.  You move around pretty well
considering.  I like sitting around contemplating things when I get a blister. --
Mauli Lama

Arugula -- Eight minutes?  I don't think we've ever gone 8 minutes before.  And
didn't you win the last one?  Glad to get back on the plus side of that matchup.  In
this arena I suspect we shall see each other again. -- Ozawindib

1977 AMC Matador -- Nice paint job.  I guess you needed to cover all those scrapes
and scratches.  Maybe we should add dents next time. -- The Upright Man

Pocket News -- Didn't you used to be the laughingstock of the arena? -- Virginia

Ozawindib -- I hate you as most hate me. -- Arugula
