                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Hail Caesar!  Hail Warriors of Free Blades!  After a more difficult fight with
Darlina from our first outing, I have triumphed once again.  Not that anyone cares or
is actually reading this rubbish...

I would like to welcome back Auguatus I of the famed Augustinian Dynasty of Arvat.
An old sentimental favorite that Caesar decided to bring back to the games.  Not much
to cover this turn and due to the laggards that deliver Daesar's correspondence, no
much time to report it as well.  We have repeatedly been forced to send our scrolls
into the Arenamaster via express carrier pigeon.  A turbo charged pigeon that travels
at accelerated velocities...

This turns challenges go out to Nightcap and Kelos.  Avoids go to Scarlet Knights and
Blades of Wonder.  Perhaps the gods will look favorably upon me and allow my final
will train to occur.  This has been a long trining drought and it would be nice to
actually learn something as well as move on to a new area...  We shall see.

I see that slacker Debby T. turned the Spyreporting over to Alarond the Scribe...
How typical, always taking the easy route.  I say bring back Leadfoot Mango Kilgore!
That was the golden era of Spyreporting... The old grey beard here could attest to
that.

Not much else going on... Caesar is very, very busy.  Being an evil "fatherless
child" is not an easy job!  It takes time and commitment.  He has been on a whirlwind
tour of far off, mystical places and is a bit fatigued from a strange illness called
jet lag and time zone changes???

Anyway, that's a wrap for this time out.  Maybe I'll be here next time, maybe I
won't... Maybe I'll be killed off in the games...  One never knows...

Until next time, I leave you with a quote from a mythical figure named General
Patton:  "A good plan violetly executed now is better than a perfect plan executed
next week."

I remain...

Romulus, Lord Marshall
Roman Heroes (17)

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Romulus, get used to it.  It's me or the golems.  That guy you mentioned?  He
doesn't work here any more.
     Fear Factory was avoided by I, Claudius.
     T-Bone got the most challenges.
     Nobody died.
     Thirty fights with three standbys, which is bad.  Home Guard did better!  Or
maybe it was Crysalis.  I forget.  But somebody did better.  Twelve challenges.

     JAVELINO (56-3728) (35-45-0,70) of REDHORSE fought COMRADE KOOK (12-6339) (21-
12-1,69) of CULTS-R-US.  JAVELINO overpowered COMRADE KOOK in a 1 minute one-sided
bout.  Not cultic, Javelino.  I wonder why?  It could be fun.  Of course, they're all
sleepwalking over there.
     MECHANISM (56-3796) (14-7-1,50) of TOOLS OF TORMENT fought NYZEIL OGLATA (17-
6753) (18-5-1,76) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  MECHANISM overpowered NYZEIL OGLATA in a
popular 1 minute one-sided match.  Oh, hey, you want to know a REAL tool of torment?
Some Assembly Required.
     ANNABEL BLACKHEART (65-6769) (15-6-2,53) of POSSE fought MACHINE (56-3795) (15-
7-0,52) of TOOLS OF TORMENT.  ANNABEL BLACKHEART overpowered MACHINE in a 1 minute
uneven duel.  She just got here, and look at her, you know, go!
     REPREHENSIBLE (82-27850) (3-7-0,90) of THE BROTHERHOOD 91 fought BITTER ALMOND
(103-41) (14-16-4,50) of the College of Mimes.  REPREHENSIBLE viciously subdued
BITTER ALMOND in a 2 minute gory bout.  This is why Almond is Bitter.

     TRADEMARK (32-4114) (22-5-3,102) of SARATOGA GLORY fought SAMSARA (75-3055) (14-
14-0,121) of I AM SAM.  TRADEMARK was overpowered by SAMSARA in a crowd pleasing 1
minute one-sided fray.  Why was the crowd pleased?  Who knows?
     DRIZZT (40-4146) (24-18-0,135) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought SISTER X (12-6340) (22-
10-0,112) of CULTS-R-US.  DRIZZT vanquished SISTER X in an action packed 1 minute
uneven bout.  You know, if a cult worships a, like, god or something, and the god
doesn't help you win fights, and fights is what you do, why go to the cult at all?
     DAMORETH STENN (65-6105) (61-82-1,155) of SAND DANCERS fought THE QUICKLING (70-
1669) (71-163-2,138) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  DAMORETH STENN was viciously subdued by THE
QUICKLING in a popular 1 minute fight.  So, what else is new?
     GOSSAMER (35-3656) (45-37-1,210) of PHILANTHROPISTS 2 fought DREHVIN (103-34)
(75-45-7,200) of the College of Mimes.  GOSSAMER overpowered DREHVIN in a 2 minute
gory one-sided duel.  A standby's life is hard.

     JELIAH BIGABO (35-3676) (47-24-2,195) of PHILANTHROPISTS 3 fought ARUNDA
ROCKTROLL (103-35) (60-40-2,190) of the College of Mimes.  JELIAH BIGABO handily
defeated ARUNDA ROCKTROLL in a 2 minute one-sided contest.
     ROYLAND (56-3380) (114-74-0,192) of REDHORSE fought STYLISH (32-4116) (21-7-
1,156) of SARATOGA GLORY.  ROYLAND demolished STYLISH in an action packed 1 minute
uneven bout.  You get back in there and fight more, Stylish!  Don't let Royland get
away with this stuff.
     LOPING WOLF (56-1796) (91-143-0,210) of REDHORSE fought CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-196)
(80-114-0,187) of THE DRAGON FIST.  LOPING WOLF was overpowered by CORT NIGHTJEWEL in
a 2 minute uneven fight.  Ha.
     CLAUDIUS (13-2860) (44-32-2,185) of I, CLAUDIUS fought TOM BOMBADIL (64-3936)
(49-24-0,200) of MAIAR.  CLAUDIUS was overcome by TOM BOMBADIL in a crowd pleasing 2
minute competition.  Maybe he was avoiding, you know, the wrong team?
     TAIRIKIA (51-4247) (116-95-2,192) of SAND DANCERS fought BIONIC BUFFALO (11-
6570) (27-10-0,184) of DO IT AGAIN.  TAIRIKIA overpowered BIONIC BUFFALO in a 1
minute one-sided match.  Buffalo steaks.

     FUNNY BUNNY (55-1862) (135-153-2,246) of RHYME TYME fought SUPERIOR FORCES (33-
4543) (96-135-2,189) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY.  FUNNY BUNNY defeated SUPERIOR FORCES
in an exciting 5 minute brutal bout.  Let 'em fight among themselves, is what *I*
say.
     TRYURLUCK (61-1029) (105-75-1,242) of BLOOD KNIGHTS fought REDFOX (13-4197) (75-
115-0,191) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  TRYURLUCK bested REDFOX in a crowd pleasing 2 minute
brawl.  Surprise.
     GOLEM (35-1485) (74-53-1,235) of THE PHILANTHROPISTS fought SMUG BUG (55-2900)
(62-121-0,182) of RHYME TYME.  GOLEM overcame SMUG BUG in a 1 minute bout.  Cool!
     JULIUS (64-3641) (109-120-2,212) of UNDER DURESS fought VICTIM OF SOCIETY (55-
3179) (50-45-2,193) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  JULIUS defeated VICTIM OF SOCIETY in an
action packed 1 minute struggle.  Oh, well.
     KREWKUT SAUSAGE (65-6327) (35-26-0,271) of LINCOLNSHIRE fought JAMMIES (74-2829)
(98-90-1,206) of DARKLINGS.  KREWKUT SAUSAGE was handily defeated by JAMMIES in a 1
minute one-sided conflict.  It's the off-hand teddy bear, isn't it?

     The challenges:
     MALT-O-MEAL (60-7527) (17-7-1,49) of CHILDHOOD TRAUMA challenged ENLIGHTENED
BEING (26-4642) (17-5-0,63) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Up 14.  MALT-O-MEAL luckily beat
ENLIGHTENED BEING in a popular 3 minute Challenge brawl.
     THE MAD CARROT (40-3862) (11-1-0,93) of GARDEN OF HORRORS challenged MOUSE NOYLE

following pledge:

* I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a Tournament, nor will I
  use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this team.
* I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
  preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
* I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
* I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
  the Dark Arena until they are dead.
* I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to the
  Dark Arena until they are dead.

The following are the rules for joining this No-Tournament arena 

1.  No tournament play (Dead tournament or otherwise)
2.  One team per manager
3.  Team starts with new rollup (or a zero fight equivalent team is transferred into
    this arena.)
4.  No tourney prizes allowed to modify warriors in the arena
5.  20 teams required, per RSI
6.  Waivers are required to allow self-regulation on tourney ban, granting RSI
    authority to Dark Arena any warrior that participates in a Tournament (until the
    warrior is dead.)
7.  Rotating council to enforce tourney ban and maintain arena integrity.

Hammer will be the focal point for this arena's Player Committee.
