                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Greetings!           

With weather like this, how grateful I am that I am a spy reporter!  To sit in the 
stands and watch the fights with an ale in one hand and quill in the other, then, 
later, huddled at my favorite table in the Smog Cutter, with more ale, writing my 
final report--this life is not bad, I say.  Especially when that cute little dark-eyed 
barmaid isn't busy and comes to help me proofread! 

We had fourteen fights here in Storm Rock this round, and fewer than half were against 
stand-ins, which is an improvement over last round.  As our new faces settle in, we 
hope this will be a lasting trend!  There were no challenges this round, which 
surprised me, but maybe it's just the season..  

Toe Puppet randomly matched with Obrojobo, the prior Champion of the Horn, and proved 
without doubt that he really is worthy of holding the title.  TOE PUPPET (18-9544) 
(72-41-0,262) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought OBROJOBO (7-5869) (65-52-2,356) of SENTINELS.  
TOE PUPPET bested OBROJOBO in a crowd pleasing 3 minute Title fight.  Toe Puppet is, 
of course, our top Parry-Riposte and we salute him.    

The remainder of the fights:

BEDDER (18-10043) (43-86-3,223) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought WALLI WEEBLE (21-6935) (44-
41-0,186) of NOMADIC TRIBE.  BEDDER was unbelievably bested by WALLI WEEBLE in a 
action packed 9 minute battle.  Bedder is our top Striker.  Walli Weeble advanced most 
this turn, a whopping 15 points.  Nice job.

THE HYPHEN-DASH (42-4499) (62-71-1,190) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought OZAWINDIB (7-6212) 
(39-40-0,175) of SENTINELS.  THE HYPHEN-DASH demolished OZAWINDIB in a 1 minute 
mismatched competition.  The Hyphen-Dash is our new top Lunger!  Salute!

JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (71-74-0,202) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought CRYSALIS GUARD.  JELLO 
KNUCKLES viciously subdued CRYSALIS GUARD in a crowd pleasing 4 minute match.  Jello 
Knuckles is the top Total Parry. 

1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (91-82-0,178) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought RYAK RAZORSAW (81-
597) (22-34-3,103) of BIG LAKE OUTCASTS.  1977 AMC MATADOR overpowered RYAK RAZORSAW 
in a 1 minute uneven melee.

I'M POWERLESS (59-2629) (21-38-0,101) of BASHAHOLICS ANON fought IRON BITCH (72-5859) 
(23-27-2,94) of TWISTED SISTERS.  I'M POWERLESS was vanquished by IRON BITCH in a 1 
minute one-sided duel.

DIRTY DIAPERS (38-5071) (24-27-1,51) of BASH BROS CHILDREN fought HARD KNOCKS (42-
4555) (14-13-0,49) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  DIRTY DIAPERS was overpowered by HARD KNOCKS in 
a 1 minute uneven match.

SPAWN'S BLUE BEER (83-403) (18-8-0,50) of BAD SIGNS fought CHATROOMMATE (18-10034) 
(17-17-0,36) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  SPAWN'S BLUE BEER devastated CHATROOMMATE in a 
exciting 1 minute mismatched conflict.

OUT FOR A DUCK (83-275) (18-26-0,48) of BAD SIGNS fought BURM WOLFSNARL (81-113) (21-
13-0,60) of BIG LAKE OUTCASTS.  OUT FOR A DUCK was subdued by BURM WOLFSNARL in a 
popular 4 minute brawl.

DELAWARE RUN (42-4400), ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496), THE SEAMSTRESS (81-986), and SYE THE 
BEARDED (81-801) all fought stand-ins and won.   

INIGO MONTOYA (33-8054) (20-9-1,84) of BIG LAKE BANDITS fought RIRORNI SOLDIER.  INIGO 
MONTOYA was overpowered by RIRORNI SOLDIER in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  Inigo 
dropped 37 points in the rankings with his loss, and no surprise, losing to a mere 
soldier. 

Parry-Ripostes, Lungers, and Walls-of-Steel are to be congratulated for an undefeated 
turn!    

When the top team is the most avoided, it's no big surprise.  BIG LAKE BANDITS holds 
both honors this round.  BAD SIGNS avoided them the most.  No big surprise there.  
Congrats to Den for holding his 60%+ team record.  

That's all I have this time.  Best of luck in your next matches.  And keep up the 
recruiting for our fine Storm Rock.
