                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                       Reflections by the Captain of the Guard

Well, suprise, suprise, suprise!!  I got my challenge thru, and I took the Captaincy 
in a short and sweet fight.  You need more than finesse to stay up here, Nutcracker, 
and with only 9 TPs currently active, you are at a slight disadvantage.  At least 
until Primus.

I\'m not claiming much in the way of dominance, either.  I just saw a nice style 
matchup and went for it.  I may hold on to being Captain of the Guard for a while, 
but I see at least one warrior close by that could dethrone me.  I won't push it, 
tho, and will refrain from issuing any challenges.  Then again, I won't avoid, 
either.  If you want me, come and get me.

Sinclair,
Captain of the Guard

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     It's raining.  Do you know what a problem rain can be for someone like me?  
Mildew!  I hate that stuff.  I have to keep myself awash in alcohol just to prevent 
mildew.  It's purely medicinal, you see.

     Ah, the fights.  The golem was good enough to produce the skeleton of the spy 
report, so let's just put a little dead meat on those bones.
     "Welcome HOME GUARD.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well."  Naturally, 
since I was here just two weeks ago doing a spy report.  "Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...."  Actually, I only fought in 
Talahya.
     "What's with NUTCRACKER?  She actually beat BLADES OF MIST's REDEMPTION, and 
walked away with 59 more points from the fight."  Why is this a surprise?  It's what 
she's supposed to do, although she may have gone just a little far (see below).
     "Laughs were big at KILLING ME SOFTLY while they watched FAT BACK clobber BARAK.  
He lost 40 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands."  Oh, yeah, 
the unpleasantness of having ladies throw their hotel-room keys at you, it's just 
terrible.
     "Apparently HOME GUARD isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  
The Dreaded Duelmaster (aka Captain of the Guard) got 2 challenges this turn!  (I 
think this must mean the Captain was the Most Challenged with two.)  TUFT TUGGERS' 
hatred of WIND STORM surfaced again as SEGALLION SUNDANCER challenged HOME GUARD's 
top dog."  Hatred?  That's a strong word.  Is it called for here?  Surely not!  Other 
teams, other gladiators, they're your comrades in arms, are they not?
     "Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners."  I'm not getting this one.  Is it 
suggesting that you spend your practice time hacking up corpses?  Surely not!  As for 
"convicted prisoners," those are called Standbys.
     "No matter the time or place, men will always duel."  Depends on how you define 
"duel," of course.
     "How well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  (I was a host 
in myself.)  Don't fall out of practive, ROYAL FLUSH!  Management must be dealin', as 
the boys at TUFT TUGGERS ain't reelin'!  ROYAL FLUSH's mad!"  Does this actually mean 
anything?  Sure, we all know what it signifies, but does it MEAN anything, just 
taking the words that are written down there?
     And so on.  I weary of it.
     Thirty-eight fights, eleven of them challenge matches.  About four standbys, 
unless I missed one.  Some days they're all a blur.  Especially when it rains.

     Thirty-eight fights, I said that, didn't I?  Here's the first, an unimpressive 
piece of work.  TORYN (78-71) (17-26-2,44) of LETHAL HERITAGE fought MEAN SPIRIT 
(101-5) (0-0-0,70) of Louts Local 101.  TORYN was vanquished by MEAN SPIRIT in a 1 
minute mismatched bout.  Granting that the Mean Spirit is REALLY mean, this was a 
shameful showing, Toryn.
     WALKER (1-6127) (28-18-1,77) of WIND STORM fought SOUL SCOURGE (59-2589) (20-2-
0,74) of VILE REAVERS.  WALKER viciously subdued SOUL SCOURGE in a 10 minute gory 
bout.  Better, definitely better, but to have the longest fight of the day also be 
the second is not good organization.  This should have been in the middle.  
Nineteenth, maybe.  Hmm, probably the rain discouraged fighters later on the schedule 
from going to this extreme, and a good thing.

     KROETLAN (78-640) (23-20-0,66) of LETHAL HERITAGE fought MOUNTAIN GOAT (56-3700) 
(36-49-3,70) of REDHORSE.  KROETLAN demolished MOUNTAIN GOAT in a 1 minute one-sided 
conflict.  I hear that Kroetlan is planning to make gyros for everybody tomorrow.
     NATASHA (78-1937) (22-12-2,62) of LETHAL HERITAGE fought LAKE SAILOR (101-2) (0-
0-0,30) of Louts Local 101.  NATASHA savagely defeated LAKE SAILOR in a popular 2 
minute brutal fray.  Quite right!  Those sailors need to be taken down a notch or two 
at regular intervals.
     LINI DAWNWIND (11-5865) (20-16-1,63) of KRILL CAVALRY fought HELLACIOUS (1-7541) 
(18-3-1,58) of MANNEQUIN'S BEST.  LINI DAWNWIND was demolished by HELLACIOUS in a 2 
minute mismatched match.  After all, this was Mannequin's BEST.
     PORK ROLL (97-1634) (7-9-5,40) of KILLING ME SOFTER fought SHADOW (67-725) (17-
10-0,64) of ROGUES' GALLERY.  PORK ROLL was viciously subdued by SHADOW in a popular 
3 minute bloody duel.  Oh, and can anybody say, "Mis-match"?
     PINE LEAF (24-4580) (26-28-0,69) of KRILL CAVALRY fought FLAIR (1-6169) (22-22-
0,82) of WIND STORM.  PINE LEAF savagely defeated FLAIR in an action packed 3 minute 
brutal bout.  Don't ask me to explain this one, I have no clue.

     SPATHA (31-4996) (31-20-2,85) of SOL INVICTUS fought FARIN (78-503) (21-33-2,67) 
of LETHAL HERITAGE.  SPATHA overpowered FARIN in a 2 minute one-sided fight.  Ayup.  
When you're named for a sword, you just naturally handle one correctly.
     DEMONICHELLION (33-7038) (20-17-2,66) of CHAOTICDISORDER fought REDDI WHIP (97-
1636) (10-6-6,87) of KILLING ME SOFTER.  DEMONICHELLION lost to REDDI WHIP in an 
exciting 3 minute brutal one-sided fray.  Very... decorative.  Yes, I think that's 
the word here.  It was... decorative.  All that foamy white stuff.
     CAT IN THE HAT (24-3103) (25-9-1,91) of THE SEUSS HEUSS fought KENNY (78-1940) 
(14-12-0,32) of LETHAL HERITAGE.  CAT IN THE HAT overpowered KENNY in a 1 minute one-
sided fight.  Probably stepped on him by accident.
     BARAK (25-2858) (25-24-3,99) of VORTEX fought FAT BACK (96-1610) (8-8-4,27) of 
KILLING ME SOFTLY.  BARAK was beaten by FAT BACK in a 2 minute uneven competition.  
Did the manager and teammates of Fat Back really laugh?  Who knows?  They'd've earned 
it.
     KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (65-99-4,131) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES fought KELDON WARLORD 
(42-2501) (19-11-1,92) of WIND STORM.  KOOKABURRA was vanquished by KELDON WARLORD in 
a 1 minute one-sided fray.  Gods, he's a cookie-monster!

     BUCK (1-2291) (48-110-0,103) of MOSSRUNNERS fought SHERIDAN (1-6055) (28-24-
2,140) of WIND STORM.  BUCK subdued SHERIDAN in an exciting 1 minute melee.  This was 
only exciting during the last ten seconds, after Buck tore Sheridan's tunic and 
exposed a shapely shape.
     KHEMRA (78-72) (22-14-0,109) of LETHAL HERITAGE fought QUEEN AMAZONIA (12-4796) 
(41-56-1,125) of DARKMOON.  KHEMRA overpowered QUEEN AMAZONIA in a popular 1 minute 
gory uneven fight.  There's a word for this, it will come to me in a minute.  Ah, two 
words.  Lese majesty or something like that.
     MOOSE (56-3459) (27-35-0,111) of REDHORSE fought ZATHRUS (1-5858) (31-35-1,131) 
of WIND STORM.  MOOSE overpowered ZATHRUS in a popular 2 minute gruesome one-sided 
match.  Meese can be startling when encountered unexpectedly, eh?
     HUMMINGBIRD (56-3475) (35-39-0,133) of REDHORSE fought AEDON (7-4295) (43-36-
1,115) of BLADES OF ICE.  HUMMINGBIRD was unbelievably bested by AEDON in an action 
packed 3 minute bloody duel.  What isn't to believe here?
     CROOKED HOOF (56-3493) (39-30-0,143) of REDHORSE fought BRICK WALL (1-7478) (32-
23-0,111) of HOMICIDAL MANIACS.  CROOKED HOOF overpowered BRICK WALL in an exciting 1 
minute gory uneven fight.  Kicked it down.  The maintenance crew are complaining 
about the brick chips mixed in with the sand.

     CARLY (65-2000) (33-37-0,150) of LETHAL HERITAGE fought KONGOL (7-4524) (39-36-
2,123) of BLADES OF ICE.  CARLY was overcome by KONGOL in a crowd pleasing 1 minute 
competition.  Why?  Or as the case might be (don't ask me), why not?
     BROKEN TOE (56-3683) (34-55-1,102) of REDHORSE fought FAST-FINGERS FRED (101-7) 
(0-0-0,110) of Louts Local 101.  BROKEN TOE was overpowered by FAST-FINGERS FRED in a 
popular 1 minute one-sided bout.  You note it just says "popular" here.  Actually, it 
got a standing ovation and roars of laughter.
     TICKLES (9-3486) (65-91-1,170) of MY PETS fought KALIDOR THE BOLD (11-6441) (22-
8-0,111) of TUFT TUGGERS.  TICKLES was beaten by KALIDOR THE BOLD in a 2 minute 
match.  Meanness to cats.
     JOHN LONGSHORE (11-4197) (34-44-0,161) of TUFT TUGGERS fought FEALOST (1-3916) 
(52-77-1,146) of MOSSRUNNERS.  JOHN LONGSHORE devastated FEALOST in a popular 1 
minute mismatched brawl.  Even an old guy can turn out a good performance if he 
really puts his back into it, eh?  Gray Power!
     KAIDEN (35-3108) (108-106-2,190) of VIOLENT FEMS fought BONGO (25-2600) (26-20-
0,179) of VORTEX.  KAIDEN viciously subdued BONGO in an action packed 2 minute brutal 
duel.  And she IS vicious.  Kaiden is as vicious and violent as they come.  Ask 
anybody who's had to deal with her on a bad day.

     MOD COD (55-2638) (77-100-3,191) of RHYME TYME fought GAZELLE (56-3701) (32-29-
0,177) of REDHORSE.  MOD COD lost to GAZELLE in a 2 minute bout.  Down with fish.  
Just speaking generally.
     REDEMPTION (4-4868) (35-28-2,199) of BLADES OF MIST fought NUTCRACKER (38-4380) 
(34-25-1,196) of ALL FINESSE.  REDEMPTION was executed by NUTCRACKER in a popular 1 
minute mismatched conflict.  Now, this was a little harsh.  But these things happen.
     HALLIE O'DENE (58-6018) (68-94-0,194) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES fought DESPERADO (77-
2459) (32-15-2,165) of POSSE.  HALLIE O'DENE narrowly defeated DESPERADO in a 2 
minute bloody match.  So many desperados in the world.  This probably says something 
unkind about our world, but there it is.
     R IS FOR REPUGNANT (99-1155) (27-15-4,245) of GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME fought AYLIAN 
(101-23) (0-0-0,181) of Louts Local 101.  R IS FOR REPUGNANT devastated AYLIAN in a 3 
minute mismatched conflict.  Somebody in the handicapper's office must have been 
really annoyed with Aylian.
     KHEMI (25-2281) (41-36-2,214) of VORTEX fought FIENDISH GLEE (46-1553) (34-22-
5,204) of CLEVER LINGO.  KHEMI overpowered FIENDISH GLEE in a 1 minute one-sided 
match.  And did she feel fiendish glee when she claimed the victory?  Inquiring minds 
want to know.

     The challenge matches:
     HEBEE (38-4359) (15-13-0,42) of ALL FINESSE challenged GAR & BRILL (38-4252) 
(38-66-0,42) of JUST BECAUSE.  Straight across.  HEBEE was overpowered by GAR & BRILL 
in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  A hometown match, and perhaps an old 
grudge.  Lots of people have grudges against Gar & Brill, and rightly so.
     WRETCHEDMISERY (33-7255) (21-14-0,49) of CHAOTICDISORDER challenged CEER (96-
1537) (10-6-4,62) of THE BLOODGUARD 2.  Up 13.  WRETCHEDMISERY was vanquished by CEER 
in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Thus putting Wretched into a state of 
wretchedness.  Very appropriate.  Be careful what stage names you fight under.
     SEX CAMEL (82-25548) (20-22-4,149) of SWEET NOTHINGS challenged RAUNI (31-5035) 
(27-15-0,150) of SOL INVICTUS.  Up 1.  SEX CAMEL was defeated by RAUNI in a 2 minute 
Challenge duel.  I never know what to say about Sex Camel.  I don't even know for 
sure what SC is.  Or perhaps, is about.
     BRANFORD HAWKE (11-5077) (31-30-0,126) of TUFT TUGGERS challenged TENACIOUS (7-
5337) (38-16-1,157) of BATHTUB ARMADA.  Up 31.  BRANFORD HAWKE vanquished TENACIOUS 
in an action packed 3 minute uneven Challenge duel.  Only three minutes?  That's a 
thin tenacity.
     KRAMER (47-5191) (20-7-0,140) of SECOND BANANAS challenged BECKY (17-5782) (25-
13-3,146) of BLADES OF STEEL.  Up 6.  KRAMER handily defeated BECKY in a 1 minute 
uneven Challenge fight.  Some people can't stand bananas of any kind, first, second, 
third, or massively over-ripe.

     BRIARTHORN (12-5671) (30-27-1,151) of DARKMOON challenged BATAVIA (78-238) (28-
19-0,153) of LETHAL HERITAGE.  Up 2.  BRIARTHORN defeated BATAVIA in an exciting 5 
minute bloody Challenge struggle.  Exciting is hardly the word for it, much to tame 
to describe THIS match.  When the rain plastered their clothes to their bodies, well, 
one can't help but notice.
     MAD DOC WILLIAMS (77-2432) (35-15-0,208) of POSSE challenged AGLIBOL (12-5848) 
(30-19-0,207) of DARKMOON.  Down 1.  MAD DOC WILLIAMS was demolished by AGLIBOL in a 
1 minute Challenge competition.  No doubt there were many skills exchanged here.
     ZLATINA ANGUELOVA (11-4856) (38-35-1,191) of TUFT TUGGERS challenged KERMORVAN 
(1-3116) (29-17-0,193) of LAB EXPERIMENTS.  Up 2.  ZLATINA ANGUELOVA viciously 
subdued KERMORVAN in a popular 3 minute Challenge contest.  Yes... I've heard that 
this young woman is, indeed, vicious.  It's unfortunate that it should be displayed 
before the innocent eyes of our fans.
     SWALLOWTAIL (1-7387) (34-18-2,196) of MANNEQUIN'S BEST challenged EXILE (7-4618) 
(35-31-1,203) of BLADES OF ICE.  Up 7.  SWALLOWTAIL savagely defeated EXILE in a 2 
minute gruesome Challenge fight.  Tickled him gruesomely by fluttering her wings at 
him?  Whatever.

     Our only TV challenge:  SAIONJI (73-4447) (22-8-1,126) of PERFECTION QUEST II TV 
challenged HELM HAMMERHAND (31-5025) (31-18-0,135) of LORDS OF VALHALLA.  Up 9.  
SAIONJI devastated HELM HAMMERHAND in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  As one 
would expect.

     And for the title:  SEGALLION SUNDANCER (11-4600) (41-27-1,216) of TUFT TUGGERS 
challenged SINCLAIR (1-6269) (34-9-3,235) of WIND STORM.  Up 19.  SEGALLION SUNDANCER 
won victory over SINCLAIR in a 1 minute Challenge Title battle.  A bold challenge and 
a fine victory.

     And for a few closing words, we will turn to the product of the golem:
     "Warriors of HOME GUARD unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.
     "Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...."

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Fat Back -- You are probably the ONLY warrior I could beat here.  I know how bad I 
am, but when you get a few more FE (okay, a LOT more) under your belt, you will spank 
me like everyone else. -- Toryn

Demonichellion -- Care to try that again? -- Keldon Warlord

Kalidor the Bold -- You seemed very (over)confident about your chances against me, 
even tho you knew I was ranked above you.  You had teammates fight me previously, and 
thought you knew me.  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  You parried the first two strikes, but the 
third knocked you down, and it is difficult to win if you can't stay standing, or 
even regain your feet!  Any time you would care to try again, please, feel free to 
challenge me, but be aware that I will be gone when the Commission splits again. -- 
Batavia

Kaiden -- Well, you showed this ol' fella what a true veteran can do. -- John 
Longshore

Batavia -- You're defining a new definition of the word 'bold'!  Well done!  I will 
have to adjust and try again. -- Kalidor

Sex Camel -- If was not so stubborn and slow to learn, you wouldn't be making such 
easy challenges. -- Branford

Uzi -- My gun was bigger! -- Zlatina

Hallie O'Dene -- I'm on a run, so watch out!  I was at 22-22 not too long ago. -- 
Segallion

     And now you're the Captain.

Base on Bulls -- I give up on you.  On all gladiators.  A bunch of drunkards, every 
one of you.  I'm going to find a community where I can make a difference. -- Carrie 
Nation

Segallion Sundancer -- Very impressive. -- Hallie O'Dene

Blind Illusion -- Little guy, aren't you?  Well, the Brick Wall has no coherent 
concepts for you.  It seems to have completely failed to grasp your nature and is now 
denying your existence! -- Hallie O'Dene, for (or not, in this case) the Brick Wall

Glass Joe -- Stupid mammals.  I'm THROUGH with you.  No more!  Wallow in your 
earthbound mammalianness.  See if *I* care! -- Ski Mask

Ace Metric -- I'm too old to learn new tricks, and metric is definitely tricky. -- 
Lini Dawnwind

Cat in the Hat -- I thought a wall fell on me!  You're as tall as that guy I heard 
of, the troll, in Primus.  And your arms are too long.  You were beating me up and I 
couldn't even begin to reach you! -- Pine Leaf

Rowdy Yobbo -- Thanks for the skill you showed me, which I needed, and you're welcome 
for the one I showed you, which you needed.  Although what you need the most is to 
remember to fight standing up.  That's so important! -- Hummingbird

Desperado -- That was my bum knee already. -- Crooked Hoof

Spatha -- Well, THAT surprised me! -- Moose
P.S.  I was most challenged!  They heard about the merry-go-round thing I guess.

Hebee -- Hey, I did mean to teach you something.  But you have to pay attention. -- 
Mountain Goat

Keldon Warlord -- If you want exotic ethnic food, come on over to the Redhorse lodge 
and we'll give you snake and vulture shish kebab washed down with fermented mare's 
milk. -- Mountain Goat

Steve McQueen -- That was very close, wasn't it?  And I'd call it a really exciting 
fight. -- Gazelle

Kongol -- I'm sorry, but that just really hurt. -- Broken Toe

Queen Amazonia -- You've got to be faster.  Have you tried the decisiveness tactic?
-- Fealost

Reddi Whip -- Oh!  That was amazing!  It was wonderful!  I think I'm getting the hang 
of my style!  You got tired.  You WERE tired, weren't you? -- Buck, luminous in the 
epiphany

Tankesh -- Not this week though, sorry. -- Phetmolge
