                       Reflections by the Captain of the Guard

     That is one clever Immoveable Object.  I ducked left, he did nothing.  He's
probably lulling me into a false sense of security.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, nineteen fights and only one standby.  This is good.  Seven challenges!
Almost a third of the fights.  This is also good.  And our Captain of the Guard wrote
a column.  Well, if you stand it on end, it's a column.  And it's there, which is
what counts.
     Sugarbeet had the greatest point increase at 34.  Prisoner R02 had the greatest
loss at 32.  Same fight.
     Serpents Hold was avoided by Royal Flush.

     RUIN (21-6862) (21-25-1,89) of DARK AT HEART fought HALIBUTT (5-4866) (25-23-
0,74) of WIZARD'S WRATH.  RUIN was overpowered by HALIBUTT in a 2 minute one-sided
duel.  Well fish.  They'll overpower anything.
     MONTY PYTHON (22-5939) (21-8-0,66) of SERPENTINE INC. fought TIFFINAL (5-4865)
(24-22-2,78) of WIZARD'S WRATH.  MONTY PYTHON was handily defeated by TIFFINAL in a 1
minute mismatched competition.  The snakes, always with the snakes, and this one
isn't even from the Hold.  Ah, well, he got a laugh out of the audience.  That isn't
easy.
     HAMMERHEAD (35-4129) (23-22-2,66) of SEA DOGS fought MONKEY DO (25-4152) (22-18-
2,85) of PRIMATES-R-US.  HAMMERHEAD was overpowered by MONKEY DO in a 1 minute one-
sided match.  Ack, who wouldn't be?
     DOMINION (98-2058) (15-22-3,65) of ZOMBIE SQUAD 3 fought CELTIC DRUID (7-5043)
(14-6-0,71) of ARCANE POWER.  DOMINION beat CELTIC DRUID in an exciting 3 minute
match.  Hmm, I suppose a wielder of arcane power can handle a mere zombie.
     ASSUR (18-7821) (27-78-2,107) of ARROGANCE fought SURLY DECKHAND (21-6568) (46-
54-1,117) of SEA DOGS.  ASSUR overpowered SURLY DECKHAND in a crowd pleasing 1 minute
gory mismatched brawl.  Sometimes arrogance is earned.  Which sounds odd when I say
it, but you know what I mean.
     PRISONER 0484 (82-49671) (33-53-1,119) of DUNGEON CELL 97 fought FAST-FINGERS
FRED (101-7) (0-0-0,110) of the Louts Local 101.  PRISONER 0484 savagely defeated
FAST-FINGERS FRED in a 5 minute struggle.  The only standby fight.  At least 0484 had
the good sense to win.

     OWAIN HARLSON (35-3130) (53-97-1,116) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought AFRICAN QUEEN
(47-6424) (18-15-0,91) of ROYAL FLUSH.  OWAIN HARLSON was handily defeated by AFRICAN
QUEEN in a 1 minute uneven fight.  Always susceptible to the ladies, Owain is.
     PRISONER R02 (82-51078) (44-42-1,172) of DUNGEON CELL 4 fought SUGARBEET (7-
5219) (35-38-1,129) of SUGAR AND SPICE.  PRISONER R02 was demolished by SUGARBEET in
a crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided brawl.  This is the fight with the most ranking
change.
     SAN YANDO (30-576) (33-31-1,197) of YAMA BUSHI fought RUBBER BULLET (54-2503)
(26-6-1,171) of USELESS TOOLS.  SAN YANDO slimly lost to RUBBER BULLET in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute brutal conflict.  With a record like that, how can Rubber be a
truly useless tool?
     TAVIS CADFALSON (35-1419) (65-145-3,190) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought MANIPULATOR
(64-3490) (42-65-5,171) of UNDER DURESS.  TAVIS CADFALSON savagely defeated
MANIPULATOR in an exciting 3 minute brutal fight.  Ah, well, Tavis said he'd be
paying attention today.
     MATH OP OWAIN (35-1418) (78-132-1,199) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought PHONELESS CORD
(54-2018) (37-22-0,205) of USELESS TOOLS.  MATH OP OWAIN was overpowered by PHONELESS
CORD in a 2 minute uneven match.  Not surprising.  Old people often have trouble with
new technology.
     CHATTY CABALIST (42-4488) (49-21-3,212) of DUNGEON CELL fought SMOKE (68-5868)
(38-27-0,201) of ZOMBIE SQUAD II II.  CHATTY CABALIST vanquished SMOKE in an action
packed 1 minute gory uneven fight.  Blew him away, eh?

The challenges:
     GOSSAMER (98-407) (8-9-4,40) of PERFECTION QUEST challenged HOFFA (18-8478) (15-
79-1,40) of ARROGANCE.  Straight across.  GOSSAMER won victory over HOFFA in a 3
minute gruesome Challenge duel.  I should hope so.
     JACK KNIFE (47-6694) (15-11-1,51) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged THOME (22-6848) (19-
0-0,84) of SERPENTS HOLD.  Up 33.  JACK KNIFE unbelievably bested THOME in a popular
3 minute Challenge competition.  The bookies are upset about this one.
     A.O. HELL (54-2523) (24-11-2,50) of USELESS TOOLS challenged DILL WEED (7-5241)
(14-5-0,52) of SUGAR AND SPICE.  Up 2.  A.O. HELL devastated DILL WEED in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  A.O. gets 'em all.
     PUMPING ON STEELE (82-33221) (19-25-0,128) of NO RESPECT II challenged HOFFA
(18-9369) (23-46-0,131) of ARROGANCE.  Up 3.  PUMPING ON STEELE was outlasted by
HOFFA in an exciting 9 minute Challenge fight.  It takes a lot of not-doing to lose
to a Hoffa.
     WARHEAD (82-13913) (29-11-0,148) of PYROMANIA challenged HUW AP HUW (35-3030)
(44-113-1,152) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  Up 4.  WARHEAD overpowered HUW AP HUW in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute mismatched Challenge duel.  So much for Huw's winning streak.
     DON KING (47-5374) (28-28-3,172) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged BLACKMAIL (64-3917)
(38-51-0,175) of UNDER DURESS.  Up 3.  DON KING demolished BLACKMAIL in a 1 minute
one-sided Challenge melee.  Good.  Never pay blackmail.

For the title:
     IMMOVEABLE OBJECT (59-2110) (36-13-1,215) of NOT QUITE challenged SPARE ANCHOR
(18-9610) (59-28-1,304) of SEA DOGS.  Up 89.  IMMOVEABLE OBJECT viciously subdued
SPARE ANCHOR in a 183 minute Challenge fight.  This was our longest fight, today and
for some time past--you guessed that already, didn't you?  And we have a new Captain
of the Guard.  How about a longest columng, which wouldn't take much?  Anyway,
congratulations to two gladiators with superior stamina.
