                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

     Well, this is a bit of a surprise, and I hope it isn't a bad omen for Induction.
Next Split, maybe, but not, I hope, this one.  I want a few cycles to enjoy being one
of teh best in the arena, and I sure won't have that in Primus!
     I salute Draco Malfoy for his challenge and his efforts.  It could have been one
of those "style advantage" matches, but I never did like doing things the ordinary
way.  Hang in there, Draco, and you may return to this position... if you don't
suffer premature Induction.

                                       Tairikia

P.S.  Change your training.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Oh, hi.  It's just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out Free Blades to 
see what's new, besides somebody putting bananas in the drinks.  Bananas are, you 
know, o-KAY, but not really happy the way pine apples are.  Or kiwis.  Or even, like, 
a tomato.  A tomato is a fruit.  No, really, it IS.  People get the little ones with 
the, you know, good flavor and put them in, um, well, in Bloody Marthas.  With 
umbrellas.  So they look like beachballs, you know?  Some of them wear shades.

     Anyway, this is supposed to be about the fights, so here is some stuff about the 
fights.  Such as, Flattus Maximus got MVP, which I think maybe means More Valuable 
Points than any other gladiator today.  Or not, I don't know, people don't TELL me 
these things, darn it.  But he got twenty-seven, even though Jealous Jodi didn't LOSE 
twenty-seven, so it's a puzzle where the rest of them came from.  I mean, *I* don't 
know.
     I don't go into deep con caves, you know, not when I want to find out stuff.  I 
just ask the scribes in the office, and they tell me.  One said that Fear Factory was 
avoided more than anybody today, and that of the people who avoided them, Drake's 
Bar-B-Q did it the most.  Don't ask me why.  I already said people don't tell me 
things.
     Propane Torch got the most challenges.  I really don't understand that, unless 
people were challenging with fire extinguishers.  Fire is very dangerous, and you 
have to be CAREFUL with it.
     There were thirty-nine fights, which is up, and no standbys at ALL, which MEANS, 
we have more active warriors than, well, Home Guard and Crysalis together, maybe.  
This is just TOTALLY tubular.  Also, nobody died, which is good, because people dying 
is depressing, even if they're resurrected right away.
     And there were fourteen challenges, but all radio, no tv.  When do we get the tv 
challenges?  I'm sure lots of people here should have them.
     Well, I have to be a little bit fast about this stuff, because of somebody going 
postal.  Or maybe a postal holiday, I'm not sure which.  So I got a bunch of 
nutshells for the fights.

     MIMOSA (32-4294) (14-10-0,56) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought WILD THANG! (29-2393) 
(17-12-0,63) of STREET WALKERS.  MIMOSA demolished WILD THANG! in a 1 minute uneven 
conflict.  I like mimosas best when they have chunks of oranges in them, and maybe, 
hmm, some honey.  And not an umbrella, but a parasol with lace.  That's the best way.
     JAVELINO (56-3728) (33-39-0,89) of REDHORSE fought MOUSE NOYLE (17-6252) (38-70-
0,73) of MIDDLE WAY.  JAVELINO lost to MOUSE NOYLE in a crowd pleasing 1 minute duel.  
I thought it was elephants that were scared of mice, not pigs?
     BIONIC BUFFALO (11-6570) (23-6-0,94) of DO IT AGAIN fought SISTER X (12-6340) 
(17-7-0,58) of CULTS-R-US.  BIONIC BUFFALO vanquished SISTER X in an exciting 1 
minute one-sided match.  Well, you better just WATCH OUT, Bionic, because you might 
find yourself at, you know, a cult meeting, and those can be SOOO kinky.
     CANNIBAL CORPSE (61-2373) (29-28-4,144) of FEAR FACTORY fought BACKSEAT BECKY 
(29-2005) (27-16-0,134) of STREET WALKERS.  CANNIBAL CORPSE was handily defeated by 
BACKSEAT BECKY in a 1 minute mismatched match.  I heard that Cannibal Corpse got to 
help clean up after the tourney.  Yuck-O!
     JELIAH BIGABO (35-3676) (41-22-2,166) of PHILANTHROPISTS 3 fought KNUCKLE JAW 
(77-2129) (43-49-2,119) of GWAR.  JELIAH BIGABO overpowered KNUCKLE JAW in a popular 
1 minute uneven bout.  I don't know why this was popular.  I kind of like Knuckle, 
you know?  She understands the importance of a good tan.  Not everybody does.

     GRETH (32-4321) (18-5-1,154) of RILL'S GCSC2 fought REQUIEM (11-4472) (25-18-
0,142) of BALLAD OF THE BLADE.  GRETH was demolished by REQUIEM in an action packed 1 
minute one-sided conflict.  I keep thinking that Greth should be a croc, because of 
the team name looking like that when it gets just a little blurry.  And the scribes 
in the office don't use the best ink, you know, because this is all going to be 
thrown away when I'm done with the notes.  And if I just happen to put my drink down 
on it, which sometimes I do because of wet glasses making marks on the furniture, 
well, it gets blurred.
     SAMARIUM (75-3071) (26-15-1,172) of I AM SAM fought SISSY CHRISSY (29-1347) (32-
24-3,127) of STREET WALKERS.  SAMARIUM handily defeated SISSY CHRISSY in a 1 minute 
one-sided fight.  Which just SHOWS that he's a GOOD Samarium.
     DAMORETH STENN (65-6105) (60-75-1,176) of SAND DANCERS fought ANARCHY (49-2279) 
(27-14-2,129) of APOCALYPSE.  DAMORETH STENN demolished ANARCHY in a 1 minute one-
sided struggle.  Gosh, if he goes along WINNING again, he might not get to retire!
     HIMEY THE PIMP (29-730) (39-32-1,188) of STREET WALKERS fought MUDVAYNE (61-
3039) (24-18-0,155) of FEAR FACTORY.  HIMEY THE PIMP viciously subdued MUDVAYNE in a 
crowd pleasing 5 minute brutal fight.  Lots of people can't stay vicious for five 
minutes, but Himey did.
     JAMMIES (74-2829) (91-89-1,190) of DARKLINGS fought GREGORY GOYLE (74-3497) (46-
54-1,176) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  JAMMIES overpowered GREGORY GOYLE in a crowd pleasing 
1 minute one-sided fray.  Oh, gosh darn it.  Somebody better take that teddy bear 
AWAY from him.  I swear, it's got claws a foot long!

     NINE INCH NAIL (61-2273) (35-29-3,182) of FEAR FACTORY fought THE QUICKLING (70-
1669) (70-156-2,181) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  NINE INCH NAIL beat THE QUICKLING in a 2 
minute bout.  Wow, there were actually NINE nails out there, and they were all sharp 
and, like, nailish.  With crimson polish, too.
     ROYLAND (56-3380) (111-69-0,203) of REDHORSE fought RIDDLER (61-1856) (69-52-
1,178) of FEAR FACTORY.  ROYLAND savagely defeated RIDDLER in a popular 4 minute gory 
match.  Huh, I bet Royland didn't REALLY know the answer, I bet he CH--  Uh, he was 
lucky.  Just guessing, you know?  Ha.
     LOPING WOLF (56-1796) (87-139-0,194) of REDHORSE fought MORTIFICATION (61-2333) 
(45-40-4,186) of FEAR FACTORY.  LOPING WOLF was narrowly defeated by MORTIFICATION in 
an action packed 4 minute duel.  Well!  I guess that explains what a narrow defeat 
is.  It's when the winner puts the loser's feet through a, well, one of those holes 
you put mail through, and slams the flapper shut, and it CUTS OFF THE FEAT.  Er, 
feet.  So the loser is totally de-feeted.  Then you don't have to worry about finding 
the other sock, though.
     KELOS (55-30) (86-126-4,208) of ROCANIS RIDERS fought VINCENT CRABBE (74-3498) 
(53-48-2,205) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  KELOS vanquished VINCENT CRABBE in a 2 minute one-
sided bout.  I don't see why.  Vince is okay.  He bought me a shrimp cocktail once, 
except for getting somebody else to pay for it.  Of course, the shrimp had the 
umbrella gripped in its, like, claws, you know how they have, like lobsters?  And it 
wouldn't let GO when I wanted to lick the juice off.
     T-BONE (13-3139) (36-22-0,198) of LEGION OF DUMB fought 3 FISTED RAT BOY (70-
6130) (36-49-3,188) of GWAR.  T-BONE was overcome by 3 FISTED RAT BOY in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute bout.  Just bone splinters, that's all that's left.

     SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) (91-132-2,198) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY fought DARLINA 
(74-2995) (56-59-3,181) of SAND DANCERS.  SUPERIOR FORCES vanquished DARLINA in a 1 
minute one-sided fray.  Some people take being Superior very SERIOUSLY.  I've noticed 
that.
     CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-196) (76-110-0,181) of THE DRAGON FIST fought DRACO MALFOY 
(74-3500) (66-25-1,195) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  CORT NIGHTJEWEL was demolished by DRACO 
MALFOY in a 1 minute one-sided melee.  This was a dragon fight, kind of.  But dragons 
that just use their fists are out of luck when somebody else has a sword.  Everybody 
says that.
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (102-105-0,243) of DARKLINGS fought SAXOPHONE (70-43) (32-16-
0,181) of LACE.  NIGHTCAP savagely defeated SAXOPHONE in a popular 4 minute gory 
duel.  It was kind of like one of those things they put in horn to make them sound 
subdued, you know?  A mule or something.  So Saxophone sounded muley or, like, 
subdued.  Yes?
     NIGHTFALL (74-2421) (137-107-4,297) of DARKLINGS fought KING LOVE (40-3748) (49-
39-2,205) of GARDEN OF HORRORS.  NIGHTFALL defeated KING LOVE in an action packed 4 
minute brutal fight.  Well, that's just WRONG.  Love always wins in the end.  My mom 
told me that, and she wouldn't have LIED to me.
     MILA (55-29) (100-117-0,293) of ROCANIS RIDERS fought REPRISAL (82-14465) (20-7-
1,202) of THE BROTHERHOOD 10.  MILA overcame REPRISAL in a popular 3 minute brutal 
contest.  That's what people SAY, but I tell you, there will BE reprisals in the end.  
You just can't go around in a funny hat forever and nothing happen.

     VICTIM OF SOCIETY (55-3179) (46-41-2,235) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought FUNNY BUNNY 
(55-1862) (129-151-2,197) of RHYME TYME.  VICTIM OF SOCIETY was demolished by FUNNY 
BUNNY in a 1 minute uneven bout.  I don't like Victim, because of that name.  So when 
I say I was glad he got demolished, you just have to remember that if his name was, 
well, Joe or Bill or something I would be sorry.
     RETROVIRUS (70-6086) (42-32-0,256) of FEAR FACTORY IV fought MAYHEM (49-1514) 
(31-22-1,182) of APOCALYPSE.  RETROVIRUS devastated MAYHEM in an action packed 2 
minute one-sided bout.  If Mayhem gets devastated, does that mean no more fighting?  
Because I could get a job modeling swim suits, and you guys could get, um, some kind 
of jobs, and it might all be cool.
     KYRLANIA (70-2327) (99-115-1,224) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought GOLEM (35-1485) (69-
50-1,198) of THE PHILANTHROPISTS.  KYRLANIA overpowered GOLEM in a crowd pleasing 4 
minute bloody one-sided match.  Did you notice that even the CROWD is quiet and 
doesn't talk or do personals?  You could hear pins drop in this place, much less 
golems.  The crowd just waves their hands and throws beer bottles.
     JULIUS (64-3641) (105-116-2,266) of UNDER DURESS fought GOSSAMER (35-3656) (42-
32-1,205) of PHILANTHROPISTS 2.  JULIUS overpowered GOSSAMER in an exciting 1 minute 
one-sided bout.  Shreds, that's all that was left of Goss.  Just shreds of stuff.  
Bloody shreds, even.  Soak in cold water and hand wash.
     TRYURLUCK (61-1029) (99-73-1,240) of BLOOD KNIGHTS fought REDFOX (13-4197) (71-
111-0,199) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  TRYURLUCK handily defeated REDFOX in a crowd pleasing 
1 minute bloody mismatched bout.  (yawn)

     Okay, the challenge matches, which means we're making, you know, progress.  I 
know I said I had to be fast about this, but I can TALK very fast, see?
     ABRA MACABRE VI (29-2331) (24-24-2,86) of TRAIL OF TEARS challenged PATIENCE 
(35-2005) (29-25-1,63) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Down 23.  ABRA MACABRE VI was overpowered 
by PATIENCE in a 1 minute uneven Challenge struggle.  Gosh, that's kind of, you know, 
embarrassing, isn't it?
     DARWIN'S LAW (35-2667) (19-5-0,94) of URBAN JUNGLE challenged DRIZZT (40-4146) 
(19-15-0,85) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Down 9.  Just call this North Darkholm.  DARWIN'S 
LAW was handily defeated by DRIZZT in a 1 minute Challenge conflict.  There's a note 
here about this being Darwinianian.  I don't know what it means.
     NOREASTER (35-3896) (19-4-1,96) of DIRT DEVILS challenged PITSPAWN FOULDOG (61-
3121) (19-12-1,100) of FEAR FACTORY.  Up 4.  NOREASTER demolished PITSPAWN FOULDOG in 
a 1 minute mismatched Challenge match.  I had a noreaster egg once, but it didn't 
hatch.
     CLAUDIUS (13-2860) (39-29-2,147) of I, CLAUDIUS challenged MARILYN MANSON (61-
1993) (36-25-2,121) of FEAR FACTORY.  Down 26.  CLAUDIUS was luckily beaten by 
MARILYN MANSON in a 4 minute Challenge competition.  So which one of them was, like, 
lucky here?
     NEDIAM NORI (31-4069) (28-20-1,147) of CISUM S. EKARD challenged COERCE (78-
1577) (29-22-1,175) of FEAR FACTORY.  Up 28.  NEDIAM NORI handily defeated COERCE in 
a 2 minute brutal one-sided Challenge bout.  I heard somewhere that a co-erse is an 
Irish girl?  I would never have guessed.  Oh, sorry, Scottish.

     THORIK (17-3125) (18-7-0,133) of STEEL WOLVES challenged BUD THE SPUD (29-1300) 
(36-28-2,180) of STREET WALKERS.  Up 47.  THORIK was vanquished by BUD THE SPUD in a 
1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Well, I always KNEW that potatoes weren't good 
for you.  This is PROOF.
     FLATTUS MAXIMUS (77-2125) (45-48-2,114) of GWAR challenged JEALOUS JODI (29-
1982) (28-15-0,127) of STREET WALKERS.  Up 13.  FLATTUS MAXIMUS vanquished JEALOUS 
JODI in a popular 2 minute uneven Challenge duel.  Well, listen, FM could vanquish 
anybody.  It's the beans.
     SCOOBY DOOM (12-6021) (20-7-1,150) of HOUNDS OF HELL challenged SULTRY SUSIE 
(29-1922) (26-20-1,140) of STREET WALKERS.  Down 10.  SCOOBY DOOM viciously subdued 
SULTRY SUSIE in a 2 minute Challenge fight.  I guess this means Susie won't be taking 
that puppy in the window home with her?
     CAFFIENE ACHIEVER (15-2429) (39-47-4,175) of DRAKE'S BAR-B-Q challenged KIMO 
(70-6089) (37-36-4,176) of FEAR FACTORY IV.  Up 1.  CAFFIENE ACHIEVER was overpowered 
by KIMO in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge struggle.  Okay, one of the stewards TOLD 
on, well, it was Carlos the Bookie is what *I* think, that put de-caf in the thermos.

     UU DOEWANAKNO (73-1414) (27-17-1,180) of DRAKE'S LODGE challenged VICIOUS VIVIAN 
(29-1298) (31-30-3,184) of STREET WALKERS.  Up 4.  UU DOEWANAKNO was devastated by 
VICIOUS VIVIAN in a 1 minute uneven Challenge brawl.  You really don't want someone 
to stomp on your feet with spike-heeled shoes.  Or even spike-heeled sandals, either.
     PUNGENT STENCH (61-2458) (40-29-1,191) of FEAR FACTORY challenged SMUG BUG (55-
2900) (60-115-0,195) of RHYME TYME.  Up 4.  PUNGENT STENCH defeated SMUG BUG in an 
exciting 2 minute Challenge fight.  Some of the crowd actually stood up and waved 
their hats in the air, they were so excited.
     ALOPE (29-2114) (32-23-1,209) of TRAIL OF TEARS challenged PROPANE TORCH (61-
2524) (34-31-1,191) of FEAR FACTORY.  Down 18.  ALOPE was vanquished by PROPANE TORCH 
in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  So, does this mean that Alope is done 
playing with fire?
     ALI GATOR (33-5584) (37-43-1,225) of DRAKE'S PETTING ZOO challenged CYLADIA (51-
1122) (130-130-1,233) of SKAITHVARN.  Up 8.  ALI GATOR was vanquished by CYLADIA in 
an exciting 3 minute uneven Challenge battle.  Wow, Cyladia has a winning record!

     And for the title:  DARTMAN (33-7161) (45-18-3,211) of COLGATE DAYS challenged 
TAIRIKIA (51-4247) (112-91-2,334) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 123.  DARTMAN devastated 
TAIRIKIA in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge Title fight.  This was a very good fight, 
and one person even said, "Good show."  Wow, what enthusiasm!

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Rillion -- The fight didn't hurt as much as the comments.  I think the arena master
has something against me "inept, wild, clumsy, foolhardy".  At least the fans like
the fight. -- Bud the Spud....starting to get a complex

     But simples are cheaper.

Pitspawn Fouldog -- Sit...Roll Over...Play Dead...now stay that way. -- Backseat
Becky

Scooby Doom -- That was no way to try and get my attention! -- Sissy Chrissy

Nine Inch Nail -- Nine inch???  Boy are you dreaming! -- Sultry Susie

Dartman -- What can I say, I'm pathetic. -- Himey the Pimp

Vincent Crabtree -- Would you and your syle just stay the hell away from me. --
Vicios Vivian

Knuckle Jaw -- Gee you broke my GS, what a shock!  I just LOVE having a favorite that
breaks 75% of the time! -- Jealous Jodi (Jealous of all warriors that got a REAL
favorite weapon)

Debby -- I'll tell you what, I'll get a tan when you get a clue. -- Vivian

     Well, I definitely think you should get a tan, but what would I do with clues?
     They're really over-rated.

Don't mind Vivian, she just doesn't appreciate the finer things in life, like
SHOPPING. -- Chrissy

     How sad!

Pungent Stench -- It's a good thing I can completely seal my nostrils at will. -- Ali
Gator

Kelos -- But... But... *I* wanted to go first! -- Uu Doewanakno

Kimo -- You know, at one time I could have sworn I'd learned how to dodge. -- Iron
Maiden

Superior Forces -- Apparently I should have *started* with the dagger. -- Caffeine
Achiever

Mila -- Oh, it's you.  The caravan raider who gets drunk, can't hold it, and doesn't
bathe too often.  Yuck.  Can you wonder that I didn't want to close with you?  Too
ripe by half. -- Darlina the really revolted

Funny Bunny?  Oh, gods, why ME?  What did I do to deserve this?  I want to RETIRE,
dammit, and spend my days fishing and my nights privately. -- Damoreth Stenn
P.S.  I'm a little surprised that Funny isn't a golem.  Yeah, okay, I knew he wasn't
a golem, but his sense of humor, by courtesy so-called, is about what you'd expect of
a golem.  You know, clumsy, heavy-handed, reiterative, and barely there.

Riddler -- Ha!  You didn't think I'd KNOW why the chicken crossed the road, did you?
But I was there, and I saw the fox chasing her.  Heck, I've BEEN the fox chasing her,
often enough. -- Redfox
P.S.  Chickens are really stupid and seem to have the idea that no one will look for
them on the other side of the road.  Ha!

Drizzt -- You're a bit of a surprise, actually.  That name was popular years ago, and
I thought all your namesakes would've washed out of the system by now. -- Mouse Noyle
P.S.  You elves just have no RESPECT for other life forms, do you?

Debby Tonte -- Just so you know, I have never, EVER, run up a clock. -- Mouse Noyle
P.S.  Or back down.

     Maybe not, but you ran up a bar tab just last week!

What, Debby thinks I don't know the answers to any riddles?  I'm not DUMB, even if I
am a gladiator. -- Redfox
