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

     Okay, I was surprised.  Match-ups are whatever they are, but I didn't expect to
WIN this.  It's a rotten precedent.  If I keep on winning, I might get booted out of
Home Guard at the next Split!  And I BELONG in Home Guard.
     Although I wouldn't mind having a Charles come in to do MY column.  Oh, well.

                                    Huw ap Huw

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     I told the clerks we should take a "snow day" and stay home.  No fights.  They
weren't listening, although to be fair, they had Green Eyes glaring at them.
     Shark Bait, biggest rise, 29 points.  Assur, biggest drop, 28 points.  Same
fight.
     No challenges, no avoids.
     Seventeen fights, two standbys.  Coulda been better, but I've seen it worse.

     KURTAL DUCK (78-2861) (27-38-1,51) of SAND DANCERS fought B&G BOUNCER (101-3)
(0-0-0,30) of Louts Local 101.  KURTAL DUCK was overpowered by B&G BOUNCER in a 1
minute one-sided match.  Which just goes to SHOW that Ducks were not meant to hold
swords.
     KHYLAR (36-4613) (23-13-0,89) of WRATHMEN fought SULU (29-5705) (25-21-0,69) of
TREKKERS.  KHYLAR was overpowered by SULU in an exciting 1 minute one-sided bout.  If
I were Khylar, I'd be wrathful about that.
     JACK DANIELS (41-3947) (18-6-0,79) of I C DRUNK PEOPLE fought PIETROS (21-7137)
(26-22-1,73) of BLOOD AND SAND.  JACK DANIELS was devastated by PIETROS in a 1 minute
mismatched brawl.  But Jack was drunk, so he didn't notice.
     LI KUI (52-851) (17-11-1,63) of WAH CHING fought HOFFA (18-8478) (25-105-1,73)
of ARROGANCE.  LI KUI was unbelievably bested by HOFFA in an action packed 5 minute
brutal duel.  Hoffas are not SUPPOSED to win.  Pull up your socks, guys, and BEAT
them.
     RED ALERT (50-139) (31-22-0,59) of PUBLIC ENEMY fought WHAT'S A VOLKSIE? (38-
4563) (24-13-0,61) of TEAM FLOYD.  RED ALERT was handily defeated by WHAT'S A
VOLKSIE? in a 1 minute uneven fight.  Ah.  Red Alert doesn't know the answer, either.
     NASTY NES (50-142) (27-33-1,61) of PUBLIC ENEMY fought ROTTING ROLAND (32-5437)
(22-7-0,78) of THE WALKING DEAD.  NASTY NES was subdued by ROTTING ROLAND in a
popular 3 minute bloody brawl.  Two of a kind, if you ask me.

     MANNY LEHMAN (51-5074) (20-20-1,60) of COLLEGE RADIO fought HOFFA (18-9369) (31-
74-0,59) of ARROGANCE.  MANNY LEHMAN slimly lost to HOFFA in a crowd pleasing 3
minute brutal conflict.  Another Hoffa winning!  The world is coming to an end!
     OHMYGOD (63-2147) (20-4-1,92) of WRATHMEN fought CAPTAIN KIRK (29-5754) (20-11-
1,72) of TREKKERS.  OHMYGOD overpowered CAPTAIN KIRK in a 1 minute one-sided match.
Expectable.  Good work, but not a surprise.
     HORSE D'OEUVRE (61-3635) (19-1-3,91) of SHEWISH BUFFET fought NERO (29-5707)
(22-24-0,48) of TREKKERS.  HORSE D'OEUVRE savagely defeated NERO in an action packed
2 minute gory match.  I've heard this Horse guy is a tough meal.  Or snack.
     HAMMERHEAD (35-4129) (40-41-2,93) of SEA DOGS fought BASS (21-5262) (14-2-3,85)
of REAL BEER.  HAMMERHEAD was vanquished by BASS in a 1 minute one-sided duel.  And
afterward, he felt like someone was hammering on his head.  Y'know, if you wrote
personals, I would have something more to do than make plays on your names.
     OWAIN HARLSON (35-3130) (72-114-1,148) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought RUPTURE (99-
3463) (12-5-4,100) of BLOOD GANG.  OWAIN HARLSON won victory over RUPTURE in a
popular 1 minute uneven duel.  Owain's winning streak continues!

     INKED PIG (15-5112) (21-2-0,126) of INK & STEEL RETRO fought THRESHPACK (50-138)
(29-23-0,96) of PUBLIC ENEMY.  INKED PIG handily defeated THRESHPACK in an action
packed 1 minute uneven fight.  Pigs have hands?
     ASSUR (18-7821) (41-100-2,164) of ARROGANCE fought SHARK BAIT (33-7652) (35-34-
0,126) of SEA DOGS.  ASSUR was devastated by SHARK BAIT in a 1 minute mismatched
match.  This is the one with the most point movement afterward.
     LAZY LOOKOUT (42-4504) (47-39-2,198) of DUNGEON CELL fought CAO ZHENG (54-85)
(33-34-6,192) of ASIAN INVASION.  LAZY LOOKOUT devastated CAO ZHENG in a popular 1
minute uneven brawl.  Trying to make it back to the top, Lazy?
     BAKED CONVINCIA (98-2341) (28-19-4,181) of SHEWISH BANQUET fought SYSTEM OF A
DOWN (38-4451) (35-19-1,165) of TEAM FLOYD.  BAKED CONVINCIA was devastated by SYSTEM
OF A DOWN in a 2 minute one-sided contest.  You can do a lot if you've got a good
system.
     SURLY DECKHAND (21-6568) (64-72-1,202) of SEA DOGS fought HUNGRY HAROLD (101-29)
(0-0-0,200) of Louts Local 101.  SURLY DECKHAND was viciously subdued by HUNGRY
HAROLD in a popular 3 minute match.  The standbys are going to get swelled heads.

     HUW AP HUW (35-3030) (56-137-2,227) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought RALTUMAN OMELET
(78-2857) (20-5-2,194) of SHEWISH BUFFET.  HUW AP HUW was devastated by RALTUMAN
OMELET in a 1 minute mismatched Title fight.  Well, Huw didn't want to do another
column.  Congratulations to the Omelet.
