                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Hail, Warriors of Free Blades!  I have returned after a relatively easy bout last
turn against Darlina.  I will keep this brief, as time is of the essence today...
This turn's challenges go out to Pungent Stench and Nightcap.  Avoids go out to the
Aimed Blows, as usual.  Hey, doesn't a pungent stench often follow a nightcap?  Like
the Sake Gods settling in, a pile of sushi in your stomach and trip to porcelain
heaven???

Caesar is preparing his ladies for their Blood games melee.  Hopefully, someone will
survive and join us here in Free Blades soon.  Best of luck to all in both the
tourney and Bloodgames!  I would also like to wecome back an old time friend and
ally, a heavy handed manager with a love of cigars and vodka, Mad Max of Arvat!
While he won't be here for a while, you can stop by and meet him for Happy Hour in
Arvat, crown jewel of the Free Blades cities.  We again would like to take the time
to encourage anyone interested in a great basic arena to join us in Arvat.  You won't
be disappointed.  As a matter of fact, I would like to head back there... You know,
become Duelmaster, challenge down, kill, etc.  All of the things that make this game
worth playing...

That's a wrap for this time out.  Maybe I will be here next turn, maybe not...  Sure
wish I could get my final will train.  I'd be willing to give up the title for
that...  And see, Ms Debby T., a column was written.  Although I still feel that they
should swap you out with a bubble headed bleach blonde spy reporter...  You've got
too many miles on your engine and too much excess baggage...  Time for something more
pleasing to the eyes...

Long Live Caeser!  Long Live the Roman Heroes!

Romulus, Roman Heroes
Lord Marshall

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Welcomem FREE BLADES.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Okay, maybe not 
THIS place, since it's now being in held the physical arena at Lirin Kiv.  Many the 
fights have I fought here.  I don't know why I say that, since I did all my fighting 
in Talahya and Darkholm.  Must be the cue cards.  Whatever.  Debby and I are 
switching for a while, maybe only one fight day each, maybe longer, who knows?  She 
said she was "tired" of Free Blades, and you guys made to much work for her.  That 
kid doesn't know when she's got it good, but hey, I'm not going to argue about it.  
Now I've got it good.

     So, let's see what we've got here, besides cold, ah, fingers and noses.  What's 
with MUDVAYNE?  That's a name?  Well, I guess it takes all kinds.  (This is the golem 
notes, of course, you get me personally later.)  He actually beat SCARLET KNIGHTS' 
THE QUICKLING, and walked away with 40 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
SCARLET KNIGHTS.  THE QUICKLING lost 35 points to MUDVAYNE.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe THE QUICKLING will provide more easy wins...  Probably a safe guess.
     Apparently FREE BLADES isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  
The Dreaded Duelmaster (aka the Lord Marshal, or maybe the Lordly Marshal?) got 4 
challenges this turn!  Another fighter (KING LOVE 53-41-2) challenged another 
Duelmaster (ROMULUS 63-46-3).  Life goes on.  KING LOVE was reminded on the sands why 
ROMULUS is Duelmaster (or Lord Marshal).  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!  That's Debby's business, and I 
can't read her notes here.
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  Actually, this is not proven 
for ALL times and places.  There's some question as to the dueling that may or may 
not go on between neighboring hermits in the deserts of Ratan.  The most avoided team 
was FEAR FACTORY.  The bums at I, CLAUDIUS couldn't face the challenges from FEAR 
FACTORY!  No excuse for that!  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind 
of fights that SCOOBY DOOM gets in.  He fights people like COERCE, 9 points below.  I 
thought SCOOBY DOOM showed great skill and promise when he was defeated by COERCE.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!  Ah, actually, I don't much care who 
Scooby fights.  Let him eat cake, if that's what he wants.

     To descend from the golemic hyperbole to some actual details:  thirty-three 
fights, only two involving standbys.  There are regional arenas on the Isle that 
can't boast thirty-three WARRIORS, much less fights.  Nine challenge matches, one of 
them a TV challenge.

     LU-LIGHTNING (13-4900) (21-10-1,87) of KIRKWOOD 1 fought SISTER X (12-6340) (20-
9-0,83) of CULTS-R-US.  LU-LIGHTNING was devastated by SISTER X in a popular 1 minute 
brutal uneven bout.  And the good Sister IS indeed devastating.  Seldom have I seen a 
chainmail bikini so effectively combined with cultic jewelry and really good moves.
     MALT-O-MEAL (60-7527) (17-4-1,56) of CHILDHOOD TRAUMA fought DRIZZT (40-4146) 
(21-18-0,86) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  MALT-O-MEAL was devastated by DRIZZT in a 1 minute 
one-sided battle.  If you ask me, these two deserve each other.  In fact, Drizzt even 
SOUNDS like Malt-o, and he was probably raised on the grueling stuff.
     PITSPAWN FOULDOG (61-3121) (20-15-1,70) of FEAR FACTORY fought COMRADE KOOK (12-
6339) (20-10-1,79) of CULTS-R-US.  PITSPAWN FOULDOG handily defeated COMRADE KOOK in 
a 1 minute mismatched match.  This means that Pitspawn does not have to shave his 
fur, and at such a season, this can give him a big advantage when it comes to hanging 
out in drafty secret temples.  (All secret temples are drafty, it makes for more 
dramatic torch flames.)
     KJARRAN'S HAMMER (61-3372) (19-11-0,59) of FEAR FACTORY fought LUCIFREYJA (103-
40) (19-21-1,90) of the Louts Local 103.  KJARRAN'S HAMMER beat LUCIFREYJA in a 2 
minute gory bout.  A different hammer, perhaps?  Good work, KH.

     MOUSE NOYLE (17-6252) (42-71-0,100) of MIDDLE WAY fought REPREHENSIBLE (82-
27850) (2-5-0,62) of THE BROTHERHOOD 91.  MOUSE NOYLE demolished REPREHENSIBLE in a 1 
minute one-sided fight.  One-sided in favor of a mouse?  That was, indeed, 
reprehensible of you, Brother.
     CANNIBAL CORPSE (61-2373) (30-31-4,109) of FEAR FACTORY fought HELYSE (103-36) 
(45-35-5,165) of the Louts Local 103.  CANNIBAL CORPSE was handily defeated by HELYSE 
in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  This is the sort of thing that gives the standbys a 
bad name.
     KNUCKLE JAW (77-2129) (45-51-2,141) of GWAR fought JAVELINO (56-3728) (35-42-
0,121) of REDHORSE.  KNUCKLE JAW overpowered JAVELINO in a 1 minute uneven fight.  I 
would guffaw, but they tell me that's uncouth.  Above all, I wish to be couth while 
I'm here.  But this is surely a case of pig's knuckles!
     LOPING WOLF (56-1796) (88-143-0,168) of REDHORSE fought MARILYN MANSON (61-1993) 
(38-27-2,148) of FEAR FACTORY.  LOPING WOLF savagely defeated MARILYN MANSON in an 
action packed 3 minute competition.  I've heard it bandied about that when all else 
fails, one should check the id numbers of the warriors and upchallenge based on that.  
This was not, of course, a challenge, but it caused me to think of the point.  People 
will try anything.
     DAMORETH STENN (65-6105) (61-79-1,153) of SAND DANCERS fought NINE INCH NAIL 
(61-2273) (36-32-3,180) of FEAR FACTORY.  DAMORETH STENN was viciously subdued by 
NINE INCH NAIL in a popular 4 minute fray.  Definitely, this is a man who needs to go 
NOW to open his fishing hotel.  Although the weather isn't the best for it, unless he 
can get up some ice fishing.

     THE QUICKLING (70-1669) (71-160-2,176) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought MUDVAYNE (61-
3039) (24-22-0,112) of FEAR FACTORY.  THE QUICKLING was savagely defeated by MUDVAYNE 
in an action packed 2 minute match.  You've already had the "color" on this match, up 
at the beginning, right?  Mudvayne did good here.
     RETROVIRUS (70-6086) (45-33-0,210) of FEAR FACTORY IV fought GRETH (32-4321) 
(21-7-1,164) of RILL'S GCSC2.  RETROVIRUS overpowered GRETH in a popular 2 minute 
uneven fight.  Greth is now beginning a course of treatment which should allow 
several of the Infirmarians to publish landmark articles.
     ALVIN (16-3927) (44-25-1,194) of AARON'S ANGELS fought SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) 
(95-133-2,192) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY.  ALVIN subdued SUPERIOR FORCES in a popular 1 
minute gruesome fight.  Proof, it was needed, that a gladiator doesn't always live up 
to his name, eh?
     TRYURLUCK (61-1029) (102-75-1,198) of BLOOD KNIGHTS fought FLATTUS MAXIMUS (77-
2125) (48-49-2,152) of GWAR.  TRYURLUCK handily defeated FLATTUS MAXIMUS in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute uneven duel.  Ah, too bad.  I was looking forward to a 
demonstration of FM's signature move.  Perhaps next time.
     RILLION (36-5545) (43-29-1,198) of THE CHADS fought BIONIC BUFFALO (11-6570) 
(26-8-0,160) of DO IT AGAIN.  RILLION luckily beat BIONIC BUFFALO in an exciting 1 
minute gory duel.  I don't see where the luck enters into this.  Rillion (tW) had it 
all his own way, and a very fast way it was.

     VICTIM OF SOCIETY (55-3179) (49-43-2,203) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought ROYLAND (56-
3380) (113-72-0,197) of REDHORSE.  VICTIM OF SOCIETY devastated ROYLAND in a 1 minute 
one-sided contest.  Debby left a note to say that this would be a good thing to 
happen, guess she doesn't care for Royland.
     FUNNY BUNNY (55-1862) (132-153-2,194) of RHYME TYME fought KAZMOGORATH (70-972) 
(26-9-1,191) of ANCIENT LORDS.  FUNNY BUNNY overpowered KAZMOGORATH in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute one-sided match.  Do you suppose we can force the Bunny to retire 
when he hits three hundred fights?  Debby's got it right about the fossils.
     KELOS (55-30) (88-129-4,199) of ROCANIS RIDERS fought REDFOX (13-4197) (73-114-
0,196) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  KELOS was beaten by REDFOX in an exciting 2 minute match.  
This must have been exciting for both of them, hmm?
     TAIRIKIA (51-4247) (115-93-2,203) of SAND DANCERS fought NIGHTFALL (74-2421) 
(139-110-4,185) of DARKLINGS.  TAIRIKIA was devastated by NIGHTFALL in a 1 minute 
one-sided brawl.  I've been sorry to see the sun set myself, now and then, but I 
wouldn't say I was devastated by it.  Seems extreme.
     CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-196) (78-113-0,204) of THE DRAGON FIST fought CLAUDIUS (13-
2860) (42-31-2,171) of I, CLAUDIUS.  CORT NIGHTJEWEL overcame CLAUDIUS in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute bout.  Bummer.  I can see that this Cort fellow is a fossil 
himself.

     PUNGENT STENCH (61-2458) (44-29-1,230) of FEAR FACTORY fought KYRLANIA (70-2327) 
(102-117-1,196) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  PUNGENT STENCH was overpowered by KYRLANIA in a 
5 minute one-sided duel.  They do say that even the strongest stench fades if you 
wait.  I guess five minutes is enough for this one to wear out.
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (106-106-0,243) of DARKLINGS fought GOLEM (35-1485) (72-52-
1,214) of THE PHILANTHROPISTS.  NIGHTCAP viciously subdued GOLEM in a crowd pleasing 
4 minute bloody bout.  Ah, well, a golem, who cares?  There are too many golems 
around here as it is.
     JAMMIES (74-2829) (96-89-1,253) of DARKLINGS fought KIMO (70-6089) (39-38-4,209) 
of FEAR FACTORY IV.  JAMMIES viciously subdued KIMO in an exciting 2 minute brutal 
contest.  Oops.  Mug him in an alley, Kimo!  Take his teddybear!
     VINCENT CRABBE (74-3498) (56-50-2,219) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE fought GOSSAMER (35-
3656) (44-35-1,181) of PHILANTHROPISTS 2.  VINCENT CRABBE subdued GOSSAMER in a 1 
minute competition.  Oooh-kay.  If this is what it takes, go for it, Vince.
     NEBUCHADNEZZAR (22-5821) (52-47-0,278) of BLADES OF WONDER fought JULIUS (64-
3641) (107-119-2,202) of UNDER DURESS.  NEBUCHADNEZZAR overpowered JULIUS in a 
popular 3 minute brutal one-sided melee.  Oooo, brutality!  Gotta love it.  What, you 
didn't know that gladiating is all about brutality?  And savagery, and other stuff 
like that.  Listen up, people get dead from this.  That's brutal.  At least, it is at 
first.  After a while, if you're philosophically inclined, you begin to see "dead" as 
a very positive state.  I like it.

     The challenge matches:
     SANGUINE (40-4135) (19-4-1,134) of BLOOD ANGELS challenged MIMOSA (32-4294) (18-
11-0,128) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Down 6.  SANGUINE was vanquished by MIMOSA in a 1 
minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Done in by a tree with pink umbrellas on it!  The 
ignominy!
     NOREASTER (35-3896) (23-5-1,175) of DIRT DEVILS challenged 3 FISTED RAT BOY (70-
6130) (37-52-3,176) of GWAR.  Up 1.  NOREASTER slimly won victory over 3 FISTED RAT 
BOY in a 3 minute Challenge duel.  Yep, one of these days, we're going to see him 
listed as Five-Fisted Rat Boy, and watch his record soar.
     SCOOBY DOOM (12-6021) (23-9-1,174) of HOUNDS OF HELL challenged COERCE (78-1577) 
(30-25-1,165) of FEAR FACTORY.  Down 9.  SCOOBY DOOM was luckily beaten by COERCE in 
an action packed 2 minute Challenge melee.  It's that choke collar.  Does it every 
time.  Well, nearly every time.
     SAMARIUM (75-3071) (29-17-1,199) of I AM SAM challenged PROPANE TORCH (61-2524) 
(36-33-1,207) of FEAR FACTORY.  Up 8.  SAMARIUM devastated PROPANE TORCH in a 1 
minute mismatched Challenge match.  What devastates a propane torch?  Besides using 
up the propane.  Inquiring Minds want to know.

     RIDDLER (61-1856) (71-54-1,189) of FEAR FACTORY challenged SMUG BUG (55-2900) 
(61-119-0,186) of RHYME TYME.  Down 3.  RIDDLER devastated SMUG BUG in a 1 minute 
one-sided Challenge duel.  Something about the first four words of that sentence 
tickles my fancy.  You wouldn't think it after all these years, but my fancy IS 
rather ticklish.
     REQUIEM (11-4472) (27-20-0,181) of BALLAD OF THE BLADE challenged JELIAH BIGABO 
(35-3676) (45-23-2,186) of PHILANTHROPISTS 3.  Up 5.  REQUIEM was savagely defeated 
by JELIAH BIGABO in an exciting 1 minute Challenge fight.  Wow, Requiem, can you say 
"error in judgment"?
     MORTIFICATION (61-2333) (49-40-4,221) of FEAR FACTORY challenged T-BONE (13-
3139) (39-24-0,225) of LEGION OF DUMB.  Up 4.  MORTIFICATION defeated T-BONE in a 
crowd pleasing 3 minute bloody Challenge duel.  It was probably that peppery stake, 
er, steak sauce that did it.
     DARTMAN (33-7161) (47-21-3,192) of COLGATE DAYS TV challenged DARLINA (74-2995) 
(59-61-3,194) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 2.  DARTMAN vanquished DARLINA in an exciting 1 
minute uneven Challenge battle.  And congratulations to Dartman for having the TV 
challenge to use, as well as for beating Darlina.  Ah, vanquishing Darlina, sorry.

     And for the title:  KING LOVE (40-3748) (53-40-2,305) of GARDEN OF HORRORS TV 
challenged ROMULUS (32-3047) (62-46-3,291) of ROMAN HEROES.  Another TV challenge, 
used appropriately, down 14 to the Lord Marshal.  KING LOVE was bested by ROMULUS in 
a crowd pleasing 3 minute Challenge Title fight.  Way to go, Romulus!

     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another spy report!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

     Romulus, the thing about spy reporting is, there isn't anybody else.  Just me.

Rillion -- My God, sir!  Good fight  Loads of good sparring only to be felled with a
stab to the posterior!  The shame...  No kidding, though, enjoyable fight. -- La Peux

Comrade Kook -- Would I need to shave off my fur to join your cult? -- Pitspawn
fouldog

Drizzit -- Kjarran needs a different tool obviously. -- KH

Debby T -- Well, I AM 7 foot tall.  So flattening people to the max is a good
signature move for me.  Much better than say "The ankle biter" or "The nasty knee cap
buster."  Though I am kind of partial to "The tyranical toe snapper." --  Flattus
Maximus

     Oh.  Well, okay, just checking.  But what do you do when your opponent wears
     steel-toed boots?

Mimosa -- That fight was just like the drink your name is after.  Blech! -- Cannibal
Corpse

The Quickling -- Obviously not quick enough. -- Retrovirus

Golem -- My stable does not like you at all.  Though my manager might be sending some
challenges your way in the future with fighters of your same style. -- Nine Inch Nail

Victim Of Society -- Man, do I suck.  I need a couple more fists. -- 3 Fisted Rat Boy

     Think how hard it would be to get gloves that match.

Gossamer -- Hey, that DOES give me a winning record!!  I'm not buying drinks for
Anybody, though. -- Kimo

     Not even Goss?

All -- I fight all 3 PS, 2 out of 3 TPs, both bashers, and the only PR in this arena.
I have the weaker styles on lock down in this arena!!  I missed last turn in 100 but
I normally have the top ranked PS there too, Mayla Tyl Crena.  She use to fight in
Lirth Kai as some might be able to tell from the name. -- Var

     This is amazingly noble of you!

Romulus -- Huh, can I fight Remus next time?  You seem to have gotten all the nasty
jeans. -- Darlina
P.S.  I'm a little surprised I jumped you, considering.
P.P.S.  And, you know, those do NOT look like my fight numbers.  I wonder whose I
got?

     They look like, you know, cool jeans to me.  They're Levi's.  He's wearing
     shorts.

Requiem -- (groaning)  That's appropriate.  I can tell it's going to be that kind of
year. -- Redfox

Claudius -- I'm surprised a little squirt like you can reach to hit me on the head.
-- Damoreth Stenn
P.S.  'Bout what I'd expect, though.

Funny Bunny -- I do not laugh at your tired jokes.  I make rabbit stew instead. --
Tairikia

Sister X -- Hmm, I suppose it's because you're a midget of a shoe, makes you pushy
and mean, right?  Well, listen up, sister, that stuff doesn't work with me.  I am a
Mouse!  I couldn't care less about shoes! -- Mouse Noyle

     Don't your paws get cold?

Romulus -- But I don't know anything about golf, and I have some experience with
horses.  Maybe I need a partner. -- Redfox

Debby Tonte -- You are half right.  Mice know.  But it isn't because of living in the

walls.  It is our fundamental nature. -- Mouse Noyle
P.S.  The walls business is just simple defense against blundering humans and nasty
cats.

     Then why don't cats live in the walls to get away from dogs?

Debby -- The fishing business, that's me, not Redfox.  He doesn't do boats. --
Damoreth Stenn

     Oh.  Well, he could do a golf course at your fishing hotel, if he did golf
     stuff.

Just so you know, all of us "fossils" are retiring at the next Split, regardless of
status, and making way for younger warriors from our various teams. -- Redfox,
Tairikia, and so on
