                              I bruised Jello Knuckles.
                               There were no chuckles.

                                    I did not balk.
                             Now I've been here three turns. 
                                 I wish I got learns.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Hail and driving rain, brave warriors of Storm Rock!
     Ha!  I made a play upon words, although this is not my native tongue.  Most 
seriously, I am glad to address you all once again.
     There were just nine fights today, two of them challenges.  Three fights involved 
stand-ins.  Which means that fifteen actual gladiators participated.  I grieve!  But I 
would like to congratulate Suave's guild for having five stylemasters this turn.  
And... let's all give a big welcome to the Ladies of Quality, and that team's sole 
representative, Spice, who has also earned a stylemaster title today.
     INIGO MONTOYA (33-8054) (34-25-2,151) of BIG LAKE BANDITS challenged CHATROOMMATE 
(18-10034) (35-33-0,130) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  INIGO MONTOYA devastated CHATROOMMATE in 
a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Mr. Montoya is the highest-ranked Slasher, 
while Chatroommate is not a stylemaster this turn.
     BURM WOLFSNARL (81-113) (41-22-0,176) of BIG LAKE OUTCASTS challenged BEDDER (18-
10043) (61-102-3,196) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  BURM WOLFSNARL subdued BEDDER in an 
exciting 2 minute Challenge melee.  Bedder is the top-ranked Striker of Storm Rock.
     MOD COD (55-2638) (274-188-4,335) of RHYME TYME fought THE HYPHEN-DASH (42-4499) 
(87-80-1,276) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  MOD COD overpowered THE HYPHEN-DASH in a 1 minute 
mismatched Title duel.  And so, Mod Cod is still the Champion of the Horn, top Lunger, 
and overall popularity leader.
     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (118-89-0,190) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought SYE THE 
BEARDED (81-801) (38-20-1,182) of BIG LAKE OUTCASTS.  1977 AMC MATADOR overpowered SYE 
THE BEARDED in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  The Matador is our premier Wall of Steel.
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (93-86-0,210) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought THE BLACKSMITH 
(107-22) (0-0-0,181) of  .  JELLO KNUCKLES devastated THE BLACKSMITH in a crowd 
pleasing 4 minute one-sided duel.  Jello Knuckles is the supreme Total Parry of this 
arena.
     HARD KNOCKS (42-4555) (31-30-0,163) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought FLOYD (107-10) (0-0-
0,150) of  .  HARD KNOCKS viciously subdued FLOYD in a popular 2 minute gruesome 
competition.  Hard Knocks is Storm Rock's reigning Aimed Blow.
     TANTRUM YOGA (42-4563) (34-28-2,150) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought EVIL INPUTTER (107-
7) (0-0-0,110) of  .  TANTRUM YOGA won victory over EVIL INPUTTER in a 2 minute duel.  
Mr. Yoga is Storm Rock's best Parry-Lunge.
     I'M POWERLESS (59-2629) (33-60-0,58) of BASHAHOLICS ANON fought SPICE (7-6640) 
(19-14-4,75) of LADIES OF QUALITY.  I'M POWERLESS lost to SPICE in a popular 1 minute 
duel.  Spice has taken the honor of top Basher away from I'm Powerless!
     DIRTY DIAPERS (38-5071) (36-49-2,49) of BASH BROS CHILDREN fought THE ANXIOUS MAN 
(8-5589) (18-14-1,33) of HOYT FOUNDATION.  DIRTY DIAPERS won victory over THE ANXIOUS 
MAN in a popular 1 minute duel.
     And that, courageous ones, is all the news that I can scrape together. Please 
bring your friends to fight in this arena.

  Armsilbar liked being Master of the Stronghold Academy, all except for one part.

He had to talk to Sheila Greywand at least once a week, usually oftener.  She was 
getting more erratic.  More chaotic.  That would be the effect of the Grey Wand.  It 
was a powerful chaotic artifact, and she kept it with her always.  She had turned his 
predecessor into a frog--or 164 frogs--and then summoned all the members of the 
Academy to a frog-leg dinner.  That had been, ah, bad.  Yes, very bad.
     But here he was entering her chambers.  With, well, it couldn't be called GOOD 
news.  And the look she turned on him--she was in an orcish mood today, all scowling 
black brows and bared fangs--that made him nervous.  But some things had to be done.  
He cleared his throat, which seemed to have a frog in it, and said, "It's about the 
next tourney prize, Lady.  I know it's more than two months away, but this isn't too 
soon to start thinking of some new, exciting prize--"
     "I have no intention of thinking about 'new, exciting prizes'," she snapped.  Or 
was that a snarl?  "These managers are getting above themselves.  They act like I 
created the arena system for their amusement!  There will be one standard prize for 
all the tourneys.  Just one."
     He had a horrible vision of all the managers walking out in a mass.  Perhaps it 
wouldn't be that bad, but it wouldn't be good.  And if he said the wrong thing, well, 
the next frog-leg dinner might be him. "Er, ah, perhaps a specific prize for each 
tourney--a spring prize, a summer prize, and so on?  The managers expect--"
     She exploded.  A literal explosion, the force of the blast blew his hair off.  
She said several things in an obsolete dialect of orcish.  He stepped backward, then 
again.  The blast had blown the door open behind him.  If he could make it out before 
something else happened--
     "Ribbit!  Ribbit!"
