Mallory decided the best way to supervise was to get a view of the action from the water, on top of a planchette-shaped pool float. Her outfit tonight was nothing more than a bikini and sunglasses, tropical drink in hand while she made sure Phil had everything under control.

Hello, everybody! I, Phil Goshawke, was fortunate enough to call tonight's challenge for the Tower of Water, under the supervision of Mallory Maeda. Tonight's challenge featured the Tower of Water's Keeper Xanth Van Bokkelen (who has held every Tower and been Archmage, wow!), facing off against one of the Isle's newest Mages, Michelle Montoya. This challenge took all three matches, and was filled with exciting action on the waters just off the shore of Twilight Isle. In the first match, Michelle came from behind to win 5-4 in eight rounds. The second match saw Xanth jump to an early lead and hang on to win 5-3 in 10 rounds. The final duel of the challenge was a classic, a back-and-forth affair with several lead changes and a nail-biting finish. In the end, Michelle won 5-4 in 10 rounds, and is now the Keeper of the Tower of Water. Congratulations, Michelle, and well-reigned, Xanth!
