                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Hi!

(grumbling)  Here I am again!  I was challenged by Golem.  It was a brave challenge 
but it seems he forgot how to defend himself... or just wasn't trying.  Golem, did 
you take a dive?  Who's paying these gladiators to keep me on the throne?

It's all right, though.   I took the magic sword, El Cid, for a little trip last 
week.  Actually I went to the Tourney on the mainland and I took Ciddy with me.  A 
shapeshifting sword is kind of handy.  Normally it's kinda fancy looking, but it 
changed to look like a grungy old dagger while I was walking around in the crowd.  No 
temptation to pickpockets.  But the best thing was, when I saw a couple of sleazoids 
drag a young girl into an alley.  I ran to help her, El Cid became a sword, I 
disarmed one of the guys and had the sword at his throat, and El Cid suddenly became 
a mace so I could hit him on the head and move on to the next one, who was coming at 
me with a dagger.  El Cid is a sword again and I get it to the guy's throat, his back 
is against the wall, and suddenly my weapon is a pair of really sharp hedgeclippers!  
Like scissors, you know.  He peed himself.  It was great.

So, this is a really clever weapon and I'd like to hang onto it a while.  If you guys 
wanta keep taking dives, that's fine with me..

Nightfall

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     I was going to a party, lots of people with conversations, pot lucks, that kind 
of thing.  The house with the rainbow on the corner, they said.  And I found it, too!  
But the party's tomorrow, not today, and I could've sworn somebody said today.  Oh, 
well.  I'll just, you know, sit around and wait a while and tomorrow will just turn 
INTO today.  You know how it does that, all the time.  Gazebo!
     But today, we have fights.  This is not as much fun as sitting around talking 
about whose great-great-uncle stole whose third cousin's brother-in-law's pig, but 
it's what we've got here.  So....

     Blackest Pride was avoided by Spongmonkeys.  Somebody, Alarond, I think it was, 
said that this was because Blackest Pride was the team to beat.  But, you know, how 
can anyone beat them if they avoid them?  That's not reasonable.  It looks to ME like 
Spongmonkeys figured Blackest Pride was the team they didn't want to beat.  But, 
well, what do I know, huh?
     There wasn't any most-challenged, probably because everybody got the same number 
of challenges.  Which is probably one each.  Silly.  I guess the excuse is, everyone 
is recovering from the tourney.  Or the taxes.
     Only twenty-nine fights.  This is so embarrassing.  We should have more.  We're 
Free Blades.  We should have MOST.  Except maybe for Talahya.  THEY can have more, I 
don't mind.  Only two standbys, so it could be worse.  I forget who it was who had 
thirteen or something standbys on the sands at once.  Gazebo!  Maybe Home Guard.  I 
just don't remember, okay.  What was I talking about?  Oh, right, twenty-nine fights, 
two standbys.  Nobody died.  But there were only three challenge matches, which is 
almost, you know, insulting.  Doesn't anybody CARE?

     Well, anyway, this is what we've got, so I guess we have to make the most of it.  
I like my most with an umbrella in it, or else chocolate syrup.  Either way.
     CHARLIE (29-4555) (23-30-0,63) of CROC FILES fought ROSELLA (103-39) (26-25-
0,100) of the College of Mimes.  CHARLIE overpowered ROSELLA in a popular 1 minute 
one-sided match.  The Chief Mime is annoyed, because Charlie started to eat Rosella.  
This is not part of the plan.  Do not eat the standbys, okay?  Even when you win.  
Even when they're mimes.
     DIAMOND (82-33259) (6-1-0,91) of DARK TOADS 05D fought JAVELINO (56-3728) (28-
30-0,53) of REDHORSE.  DIAMOND overpowered JAVELINO in a 1 minute uneven duel.  Well, 
there's a note here on the edge of the notes, in the shoulder of the notes, sort of, 
and it says that diamonds cut everything.  Even wild pigs.  I guess so.
     THE QUICKLING (70-1669) (65-147-2,136) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought PROPANE TORCH 
(61-2524) (27-25-1,134) of FEAR FACTORY.  THE QUICKLING lost to PROPANE TORCH in a 
popular 2 minute bout.  The maintenance people are getting upset about this.  They 
don't like little charred pieces of gladiators and armor in the sands, because it 
clogs something.  I don't know what, exactly, but it just clogs 'em awfully.
     ARIA (75-3012) (32-37-1,143) of DARK TOADS fought MOUSE NOYLE (17-6252) (35-59-
0,122) of MIDDLE WAY.  ARIA handily defeated MOUSE NOYLE in a 1 minute mismatched 
bout.  I was really, really glad.  I mean, I don't actually, well, toads are not my 
favorite thing, you know?  But more than mouses.
     THOMAS (82-14150) (23-36-2,146) of TOADS OF KRONDUR II fought ROSELLA (103-39) 
(26-25-0,100) of the College of Mimes.  THOMAS won victory over ROSELLA in a popular 
1 minute fray.  Well, this was kind of unfair, because of Rosella having to fight 
already once, and then get chewed on by crocodile.  She was off her strike or 
whatever it is that people get off of when they have bad days.  And, well, being a 
standby isn't EASY, you know.  I think that's why they joined the mimes.

     LITA (82-27080) (8-4-1,102) of DARK TOADS 04D fought DAMORETH STENN (65-6105) 
(53-68-1,147) of SAND DANCERS.  LITA overpowered DAMORETH STENN in an action packed 1 
minute brutal one-sided bout.  So the question is, can Damoreth retire, quick, before 
he wins another one?
     VICTIM OF SOCIETY (55-3179) (35-39-2,155) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought GISELLA (74-
2704) (31-17-0,140) of DARK TOADS.  VICTIM OF SOCIETY was beaten by GISELLA in an 
action packed 4 minute fight.  Now he, meaning, you know, the Victim, is going to 
change his name to Victim of Gisella.  Except that this isn't a name-change time.
     VALLANT (38-4151) (50-29-2,179) of DARK TOADS fought KIMO (70-6089) (31-29-
4,117) of FEAR FACTORY IV.  VALLANT defeated KIMO in an action packed 1 minute fight.  
Gazebo!  You can tell that Kimo did really well, because the announcer didn't say 
"one-sided" or "mis-matched."  That's good, Kimo.
     JAMMIES (74-2829) (82-84-1,167) of DARKLINGS fought TEMUJIN (65-3796) (27-9-
0,134) of SPLIT INFINITY 2.  JAMMIES viciously subdued TEMUJIN in a popular 3 minute 
brutal contest.  And afterwards, Jammies pasted the infinity back together again.  
Because we don't want any split infinities around here, they just look so untidy, you 
can't imagine.
     REDFOX (13-4197) (66-102-0,199) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought TOM RIDDLE (74-3501) 
(43-43-3,165) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  REDFOX was demolished by TOM RIDDLE in an action 
packed 1 minute uneven bout.  I think that Tom should do something nice for Redfox 
now that he, meaning, you know, Tom, has got a winning record out of the whole deal.  
Everyone tells me that having a winning record is very important.

     CYLADIA (51-1122) (118-128-1,202) of SKAITHVARN fought GOSSAMER (35-3656) (36-
25-1,198) of PHILANTHROPISTS 2.  CYLADIA devastated GOSSAMER in an action packed 2 
minute one-sided bout.  I think this must be on account of the cold hands.  Cyladia's 
cold hands.  They're numb sometimes.  And it's real easy to rip gossamer when your 
hands are numb.  I mean, did any of you ever try to take off sheer stockings, you 
know, really sheer ones, not big old socks, after you've been skiing?  Runs all over.  
It never fails.
     KELOS (55-30) (80-118-4,198) of ROCANIS RIDERS fought WAIS (65-6447) (37-50-
0,203) of DARK TOADS.  KELOS was narrowly defeated by WAIS in a crowd pleasing 1 
minute bloody fight.  So, which one is narrow this time?  Is Kelos narrow, or Wais?  
I saw somebody who was narrow, once.  Tudies mentioned Al, that's what Alarond said.  
Flat as paper.  It was gazebo.  When they were coming and going, I could see them 
fine, but when they went sideways, they just weren't there.
     RIDDLER (61-1856) (62-46-1,190) of FEAR FACTORY fought DARLINA (74-2995) (54-47-
3,192) of SAND DANCERS.  RIDDLER beat DARLINA in an exciting 5 minute brutal match.  
Well, we all TOLD Darlina not to stay up late reading.  It makes your mind foggy.  
She probably needed an umbrella in it.
     SMUG BUG (55-2900) (57-104-0,187) of RHYME TYME fought SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) 
(82-127-2,186) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY.  SMUG BUG was bested by SUPERIOR FORCES in a 
popular 1 minute brawl.  I really, really like to see the silly bug just pasted FLAT 
on the wall.  Smugness is just insuberable.  In soverbull.  In supper hell?  It's 
something I can't stand.  You know.
     LOPING WOLF (56-1796) (83-129-0,195) of REDHORSE fought GOLEM (35-1485) (61-45-
1,195) of THE PHILANTHROPISTS.  LOPING WOLF was devastated by GOLEM in an exciting 1 
minute bloody uneven duel.  So is this the Golem that didn't do anything for the 
title?  Maybe it doesn't want the title,  Maybe it just likes not having to write 
anything.  Some do.  Or is it don't?  Whatever.

     ROYLAND (56-3380) (101-65-0,196) of REDHORSE fought PUNGENT STENCH (61-2458) 
(34-22-1,174) of FEAR FACTORY.  ROYLAND handily defeated PUNGENT STENCH in a popular 
1 minute uneven fight.  Well, okay, he's rude, but I admit that Royland does know how 
to handle a bar of soap.  Some don't.
     ELVIS (7-612) (44-39-0,181) of THE ROCKERS fought RETROVIRUS (70-6086) (33-28-
0,187) of FEAR FACTORY IV.  ELVIS outwaited RETROVIRUS in a crowd pleasing 8 minute 
bout.  This is the longest fight, and it wasn't really a fight.  Retrovirus kept 
making faces, and Elvis just sang about hound dogs and other neat stuff and offered 
to buy everybody a fried banana sandwich.  That's why the crowd loved it.  It isn't 
every day you can get a free fried banana sandwich.
     BRAND (82-13289) (36-28-1,245) of TOADS OF AMBER III fought CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-
196) (70-102-0,186) of THE DRAGON FIST.  BRAND devastated CORT NIGHTJEWEL in an 
exciting 2 minute brutal mismatched conflict.  I know people SAY that Wais is the 
only toad with a jewel in her head, but I bet Brand wants one, and he was trying to 
get it.  You think?  I mean, he was... um, maybe I won't think about that.  It was, 
like, too gazebo.  But I bet he was after the jewel.
     TRYURLUCK (61-1029) (90-68-1,345) of BLOOD KNIGHTS fought MORTIFICATION (61-
2333) (41-31-4,199) of FEAR FACTORY.  TRYURLUCK handily defeated MORTIFICATION in an 
exciting 2 minute brutal one-sided bout.  Handily means "with both hands."  I asked 
Olaf about that, because I kept seeing it in the notes, you know?  And I thought it 
meant, like, look, mom, no sword.  But it's just the both hands thing.
     HOUSE MOUSE (55-221) (144-201-2,256) of RHYME TYME fought WINSTON (75-2600) (50-
32-0,186) of DARK TOADS.  HOUSE MOUSE viciously subdued WINSTON in a popular 3 minute 
brutal fight.  Oh, darn, another mouse.  There are too many mouses here.  Two is two 
many.  That's what it SAYS, right?  Two many.

     MILA (55-29) (90-113-0,215) of ROCANIS RIDERS fought FUNNY BUNNY (55-1862) (120-
146-1,208) of RHYME TYME.  MILA lost to FUNNY BUNNY in an action packed 1 minute 
fight.  I thought of a couple of really funny things to say about Mila, but Larkin, 
who was SUPPOSED to go home to Lirith Kai, is looking over my shoulder, well, he DID 
bring me a fresh drink with pineapple and an umbrella, and anyway, he won't let me 
say them here.  What a party pooper.
     KYRLANIA (70-2327) (90-110-1,278) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought DRACO MALFOY (74-
3500) (55-22-1,205) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  KYRLANIA lost to DRACO MALFOY in an action 
packed 1 minute duel.  Draco's been studying really hard to get good, you know, and 
Kyrlania just wasn't paying attention, and that's what happens.
     JELIAH BIGABO (35-3676) (35-15-2,211) of PHILANTHROPISTS 3 fought TEXAS GLITTER 
(35-3509) (36-23-0,197) of EXACTLY!  JELIAH BIGABO devastated TEXAS GLITTER in a 1 
minute one-sided competition.  Look, I don't get this.  I mean, I've been to Texas, 
right?  And it doesn't glitter.  It's just sand and trees with thorns, and cows.
     BAT (74-2742) (101-93-1,267) of DARKLINGS fought JON SNOW (78-2389) (28-9-2,183) 
of DARK TOADS.  BAT defeated JON SNOW in an exciting 2 minute struggle.  He flew into 
his hair and went "chitter, chitter" the way bats do but most people can't hear it, 
except maybe toads can?
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (91-102-0,242) of DARKLINGS fought 3 FISTED RAT BOY (70-6130) 
(33-39-3,221) of GWAR.  NIGHTCAP bested 3 FISTED RAT BOY in an action packed 1 minute 
brawl.  I never knew what people meant by pulling wool over someone's eyes, I thought 
it was with sheep, but Nightcap did this with just a stocking cap.  Gazebo!

     Three challenge matches, right here:  GREGORY GOYLE (74-3497) (41-45-1,143) of 
SLYTHERIN HOUSE challenged WE LIKE THE MOON (25-5013) (33-19-4,144) of SPONGMONKEYS.  
Up 1.  GREGORY GOYLE bested WE LIKE THE MOON in a 2 minute Challenge contest.  This 
was, like, JUST the right time for it, because of the moon being dark today.  And 
it's not only dark today, it won't be around tonight at all.
     VINCENT CRABBE (74-3498) (46-41-2,192) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE challenged JULIUS (64-
3641) (93-114-2,192) of UNDER DURESS.  Straight across.  VINCENT CRABBE was 
demolished by JULIUS in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  This is the "I have 
more experience than, you know, you do" thing.  And duress, all over the place.
     DARTMAN (33-7161) (40-16-3,212) of COLGATE DAYS challenged TAIRIKIA (51-4247) 
(100-89-1,314) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 102.  DARTMAN viciously subdued TAIRIKIA in a 
crowd pleasing 1 minute Challenge fight.  Wow!  Totally tubular.

     And for the title:  NIGHTFALL (74-2421) (125-105-4,288) of DARKLINGS fought 
BLEYS (82-13278) (26-14-2,216) of TOADS OF AMBER.  Just random, you see.  NIGHTFALL 
defeated BLEYS in an exciting 2 minute Title fight.  But you can tell that Bleys is 
good and will be, like, Lord Marshall himself some day, because the fight wasn't one-
sided.  So congratulations to everybody.  Thank you for writing a column, Nightfall.

                                       Debby T.

Golem -- Those are very pretty muscles someone sculpted on you.  Are you complete in 
other details as well? -- Nightfall
P.S.  I sure didn't see any effort out there.  Tell me you didn't take a dive.

Jon Snow -- I bet you thought I meant to attack your abdomen.  Nope. -- Nightcap

Tremor Christ -- That train'll probably help you stop shaking. -- Bat

Ms. Tonte -- No, I don't normally get in ladies' hair.  (smiling)  I don't know if 
they would like it or not.  Do you think I should try it? -- Bat

     Well, it would depend on, you know, the lady.

Tryurluck -- That was a very powerful blow.  Well struck! -- Royland

Debby Tonte -- And why do you go out of your way to say mean things about me?  You 
like me.  You don't want to admit it.  See, I have to believe that because otherwise 
it would break my heart, you're so nasty to me. -- Royland

     Well, I'm TRYING.

Paranoia -- I should have stayed in bed?  And missed that wonderful train?  I don't 
think so! -- Cyladia

     AT&SF

Son of Sam -- You pa didn't teach you to dodge? -- Mila

Fut Cough -- Your first minute strategy sucks, but you did great after that.  Good 
fight! -- Loping Wolf

Delicious -- "Red superiority?"  Are you any relation to Red Delicious from Rocanis? 
-- Jammies

Debby Tonte -- For you, I painted a little umbrella in the hand of the teddy bear on 
my shield. -- Jammies

     And it was, you know, totally gazebo.  Thank you.

Whatcha Want -- It's embarrassing to get one-shotted, isn't it?  Happens to me every 
once in a while, too. -- Kelos

Sin-Eater -- Woot!  I think you've found your calling.  You're a natural teacher. -- 
Javelino

Samsara -- Mantor, man, you LOST!  How could you DO that to me? -- Damoreth Stenn
P.S.  I'm never going to retire when I win.

Samarium -- I suppose it's a learning experience. -- Redfox
P.S.  For both of us.  Even though it was perfunctory.

Vincent Crabbe -- No, no, NO, boy, don't just stand there! -- Tairikia

Wyatt Earp -- Somehow I expected you to be taller. -- Darlina
P.S.  And the pointed ears were a surprise, too.

Tom Riddle -- Damned geeky, red-headed predator!  You're part fox, aren't you?  I can 
tell. -- Mouse Noyle

Debby Tonte -- So!  You are anti-Mouse, are you?  We have places for people like you! 
-- Mouse Noyle, twirling his mustache

     Yes, well, we have places for mouses, too.

Debby Tonte -- Why not?  It makes a change from the day-to-day sameness. -- Redfox

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to welcome two managers to our fold.  Kon of
the Empire Rising, and Osiris!  May they be blessed with the blood of their enemies,
and give no quarter in War! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

11 April 2006
To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and

help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
