                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Greetings, Free Blades.

Title defense number 2 went well.  This turn, I TV Challenged Nightcap, the top
contender.  We've not fought before, so I look forward to the challenge.

I apologize for my brevity, but Nebuchadnezzar and I did not perform well in the
recent tournament and The Sandman is calling us to extra training sessions.

Until next turn,

King Love

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Aren't you GLAD we aren't still up in Talahya, using the same arena and staff
as, well, Talahya, and Home Guard, and Primus, and Andorak, and Crysalis?  Well,
maybe not the same standbys, but everything else.  I heard that the Infirmary people
are making, you know, bets on how long it takes gladiators to recover.  I wouldn't
trust them, if it was ME.  And they've got MONSTERS up there, it started in Andorak,
but I heard that even Crysalis had some monsters.  WE don't have monsters.  Of
course, that might mean we'll have to go rescue them one of these days.  They'd
probably get annoyed, but it's, like, a hero thing, you know?  Rescuing people.  I
mean, I've read the manual, so I KNOW about it.

     But today, it's just a regular fight day.  Thirty-four fights, this is good,
isn't it?  I forget sometimes.  They had more in Crysalis, but they had TWELVE
standbys (or monsters) fighting, too.  We only had TWO standbys fight.  And fourteen
challenge matches, but only radio, no tv.  And I don't think we've been split yet,
either.
     Fear Factory was most avoided, and I, Claudius (actually, not *I*, but HIM
Claudius, but you know how the arena scribes are) avoided them the most.
     Propane Torch got the most challenges, and it was more than the Lord Marshall
got.
     And somebody died, you'd think this was Darkholm or something!  I forget who,
but we'll see when we get there.

     ACID BATH (33-7373) (17-4-0,64) of DEATH PENALTY fought COMRADE KOOK (12-6339)
(22-15-1,65) of CULTS-R-US.  ACID BATH was savagely defeated by COMRADE KOOK in a 2
minute brutal conflict.  I heard of someone who tried to bathe in grapefruit juice
once, because of getting rid of wrinkles.  And lots more besides!  It must be, you
know, like this Acid Bath stuff.
     KJARRAN'S HAMMER (61-3372) (21-13-0,79) of FEAR FACTORY fought NYZEIL OGLATA
(17-6753) (18-9-1,44) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  KJARRAN'S HAMMER was devastated by NYZEIL
OGLATA in a popular 1 minute uneven bout.  Well, gosh, it's a good thing Koris
Zarloff isn't here!  I saw him up in Talahya last week, but I ducked out, you know?
I don't think he saw me, and he probably doesn't know we moved down here to the Lirin
Kiv arena.  He really doesn't like it when Karnhorns lose fights.  Even to other
Karnhorns, I guess.
     JADRA (61-3379) (16-3-1,52) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought ROSELLA (103-39) (26-25-
0,100) of the Stalwart Lads and Ladies.  JADRA devastated ROSELLA in a 1 minute one-
sided battle.  I don't think Rosella liked being devastated, but at least she isn't a
Monster from the, like, Black Lagoon or something.
     CORRUPTION (82-22745) (9-2-0,29) of THE BROTHERHOOD 40 fought ALDALDON (56-3913)
(15-7-1,53) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  CORRUPTION devastated ALDALDON in a 1 minute one-
sided duel.  Well, it happens.  Lots of people just aren't READY for corruption.
     FLATTUS MAXIMUS (77-2125) (48-53-2,144) of GWAR fought SISTER X (12-6340) (23-
13-0,118) of CULTS-R-US.  FLATTUS MAXIMUS narrowly defeated SISTER X in a 2 minute
brutal fray.  And just, you know, Watch OUT for Cults, Flattus, because Sister has
FRIENDS in mysterious places.

     JAVELINO (56-3728) (39-45-1,110) of REDHORSE fought ENLIGHTENED BEING (26-4642)
(20-6-0,99) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  JAVELINO overpowered ENLIGHTENED BEING in a 1 minute
one-sided bout.  I think this was totally gross of Javelino, but then, he's a caravan
raider in a funny hat, so what can you expect?  I mean, he hangs out with Royland.
     CANNIBAL CORPSE (61-2373) (30-35-4,105) of FEAR FACTORY fought HELYSE (103-36)
(45-35-5,165) of the Stalwart Lads and Ladies.  CANNIBAL CORPSE was overpowered by
HELYSE in a popular 1 minute one-sided match.  Well, why not?  Helyse has a right to
defend herself, doesn't she?
     THE QUICKLING (70-1669) (73-165-2,170) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought SERIAL MURDERER
(9-990) (29-33-0,142) of THE MONGOLOIDS.  THE QUICKLING was narrowly defeated by
SERIAL MURDERER in a 9 minute fight.  Defeated AND pushed through a small knothole
backward.  That's the narrow part.
     JAMMIES (74-2829) (101-91-1,205) of DARKLINGS fought KIMO (70-6089) (39-42-
4,185) of FEAR FACTORY IV.  JAMMIES overpowered KIMO in an exciting 1 minute uneven
competition.  It was the off-hand teddy bear, right?  It messes people up.  Probably
because it's only got one eye, but that eye GLOWS.  Probably a Monster of some kind.
     JELIAH BIGABO (35-3676) (49-26-2,194) of PHILANTHROPISTS 3 fought DAMORETH STENN
(65-6105) (62-85-1,166) of SAND DANCERS.  JELIAH BIGABO viciously subdued DAMORETH
STENN in a popular 2 minute gruesome fray.  Totally not surprising.

     DARLINA (74-2995) (62-65-3,205) of SAND DANCERS fought GOSSAMER (35-3656) (46-
38-1,190) of PHILANTHROPISTS 2.  DARLINA was defeated by GOSSAMER in an action packed
4 minute brutal match.  It's the cobweb thing.  Some people just can't STAND cobwebs,
you know?  I mean, they get in your EYELASHES, even!  Really gross.  And they tickle.
     JULIUS (64-3641) (112-121-2,202) of UNDER DURESS fought KNUCKLE JAW (77-2129)
(47-53-2,152) of GWAR.  JULIUS overpowered KNUCKLE JAW in a 1 minute one-sided duel.
Well, of course.  Is anyone surprised?
     PUNGENT STENCH (61-2458) (45-32-1,189) of FEAR FACTORY fought NOREASTER (35-
3896) (25-10-1,172) of DIRT DEVILS.  PUNGENT STENCH savagely defeated NOREASTER in an
action packed 4 minute brutal fight.  Sometimes you just can't, like, blow it away,
right?
     TRYURLUCK (61-1029) (107-77-1,193) of BLOOD KNIGHTS fought RIDDLER (61-1856)
(73-56-1,191) of FEAR FACTORY.  TRYURLUCK viciously subdued RIDDLER in a popular 3
minute brutal contest.  Do you know, there's a Riddler in Crysalis, too?  We should
get them to challenge each other to riddle game!  And then we could sneak away and go
water-skiiiing.
     KELOS (55-30) (92-132-5,196) of ROCANIS RIDERS fought ALVIN (16-3927) (48-28-
1,191) of AARON'S ANGELS.  KELOS was demolished by ALVIN in an action packed 1 minute
uneven bout.  This is what old men tell stories about when they sit on benches in
front of the stage station.  You know, youth and skill, old age and cunning.  That
sort of stuff.

     TAIRIKIA (51-4247) (119-96-2,225) of SAND DANCERS fought 3 FISTED RAT BOY (70-
6130) (39-54-3,202) of GWAR.  TAIRIKIA overpowered 3 FISTED RAT BOY in a 2 minute
uneven fight.  So next time, he needs to bring a fourth fist, only the Steward might
think there were two of him--are two of him  Whatever, and make him leave the extra
fists behind.
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (112-107-0,250) of DARKLINGS fought FUNNY BUNNY (55-1862)
(138-154-2,215) of RHYME TYME.  NIGHTCAP overcame FUNNY BUNNY in a crowd pleasing 1
minute competition.  When fossils fight, you know what you get?  Gravel.
     SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) (98-137-2,212) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY fought SCOOBY
DOOM (12-6021) (25-14-1,181) of HOUNDS OF HELL.  SUPERIOR FORCES was savagely
defeated by SCOOBY DOOM in an exciting 2 minute gory bout.  Good dog!
     RETROVIRUS (70-6086) (47-35-0,212) of FEAR FACTORY IV fought CORT NIGHTJEWEL
(78-196) (83-115-0,220) of THE DRAGON FIST.  RETROVIRUS slimly won victory over CORT
NIGHTJEWEL in an exciting 3 minute fight.  I hear that Retro has been dieting; he
looks very good, doesn't he?
     ROMULUS (32-3047) (68-47-3,232) of ROMAN HEROES fought NIGHTFALL (74-2421) (144-
112-4,200) of DARKLINGS.  ROMULUS overpowered NIGHTFALL in a 1 minute mismatched
brawl.  So... is it morning again?

     And here are the challenge matches, all fourteen of them.  This means more than
halfway to the end, so those of you who have read this far, well, you don't have as
far to go as you've come.
     MALT-O-MEAL (60-7527) (20-8-1,87) of CHILDHOOD TRAUMA challenged MOUSE NOYLE
(17-6252) (45-75-0,93) of MIDDLE WAY.  Up 6.  MALT-O-MEAL savagely defeated MOUSE
NOYLE in a 3 minute Challenge struggle.  Gosh, I didn't know mice were allergic to
Malt-O-Meal.  That's probably something that would make a fortune if you could, you
know, bottle it.  But I guess mostly they just avoid it.
     Oh, here's the death.  I knew we'd come to it sooner or later.  NINE INCH NAIL
(61-2273) (38-34-3,140) of FEAR FACTORY challenged SMUG BUG (55-2900) (63-124-0,169)
of RHYME TYME.  Up 29.  NINE INCH NAIL put to death SMUG BUG in an action packed 1
minute Challenge fight.  I've often wanted to nail a bug to the wall like that.  Lots
of times.
     ANNABEL BLACKHEART (65-6769) (19-6-2,122) of POSSE challenged MUDVAYNE (61-3039)
(26-24-0,162) of FEAR FACTORY.  Up 40.  This is, like, crazy, you know?  ANNABEL
BLACKHEART was bested by MUDVAYNE in a crowd pleasing 1 minute Challenge bout.  Maybe
some other time.
     SANGUINE (40-4135) (23-7-1,177) of BLOOD ANGELS challenged LOPING WOLF (56-1796)
(92-146-0,169) of REDHORSE.  Down 8.  SANGUINE was bested by LOPING WOLF in an
exciting 2 minute Challenge battle.  Like this is a surprise?  I mean, Loping is such
a fossil!
     BIONIC BUFFALO (11-6570) (28-13-0,174) of DO IT AGAIN challenged DRIZZT (40-
4146) (28-18-0,172) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Down 2.  BIONIC BUFFALO was demolished by
DRIZZT in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge match.  I did hear once that buffalo hump
is totally good to eat, for steaks, you know?  Is this true?  Will we get to test it?

     CLAUDIUS (13-2860) (45-35-2,177) of I, CLAUDIUS challenged MARILYN MANSON (61-
1993) (40-29-2,174) of FEAR FACTORY.  Down 3.  CLAUDIUS savagely defeated MARILYN
MANSON in a popular 2 minute gory Challenge melee.  Wait a minute, wasn't I Claudius
avoiding Fear Factory?  Well, I guess it didn't work!
     COERCE (78-1577) (33-26-1,195) of FEAR FACTORY challenged T-BONE (13-3139) (42-
28-0,198) of LEGION OF DUMB.  Up 3.  COERCE was overpowered by T-BONE in a popular 1
minute gory uneven Challenge duel.  This is because of Coerce being vegetarian.  I
only found out about it myself yesterday, at the Wolf's Head.  I wanted extra fruit,
you know?  And Coerce had eaten it all.  But I don't mind, they're getting in some
more.  Pineapple.
     REQUIEM (11-4472) (28-26-0,182) of BALLAD OF THE BLADE challenged PROPANE TORCH
(61-2524) (37-36-1,185) of FEAR FACTORY.  Up 3.  REQUIEM vanquished PROPANE TORCH in
a 1 minute uneven Challenge duel.  This Propane was Most Challenged, remember?  I
guess everyone wanted a scorch.
     SAMARIUM (75-3071) (31-20-1,196) of I AM SAM challenged REDFOX (13-4197) (77-
117-0,191) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 5.  SAMARIUM devastated REDFOX in a 2 minute one-
sided Challenge competition.  I hope you got lots of skills, Sam, because that's why
we keep Redfox here at all.
     NEBUCHADNEZZAR (22-5821) (57-49-0,199) of BLADES OF WONDER challenged ROYLAND
(56-3380) (117-75-0,239) of REDHORSE.  Up 40.  NEBUCHADNEZZAR vanquished ROYLAND in
an exciting 4 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Good!  I was terribly excited.  I
mean, it was Royland, and he was getting vanquished good!

     SAMSARA (75-3055) (18-14-0,206) of I AM SAM challenged KYRLANIA (70-2327) (108-
118-1,245) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  Up 39.  SAMSARA overpowered KYRLANIA in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute mismatched Challenge match.  I don't know why Kyrlania's so
popular, unless it's the coins she throws into the stands.
     DARTMAN (33-7161) (51-24-3,217) of COLGATE DAYS challenged MORTIFICATION (61-
2333) (52-41-4,224) of FEAR FACTORY.  Up 7.  DARTMAN overpowered MORTIFICATION in a 2
minute mismatched Challenge duel.  So, does this mean that Mort is mortified?  It
would be very balanced, so probably not.
     LIMA BEAN FLAMBE (70-3118) (40-30-0,215) of HEAVE HO! challenged MIMOSA (32-
4294) (22-14-1,192) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Down 23.  LIMA BEAN FLAMBE vanquished MIMOSA
in an exciting 2 minute uneven Challenge battle.  Yuck.  Lima beans.  Ick.  Even
toasted and dusted with cayenne, they just aren't really FOOD.

     And for the title:  KING LOVE (40-3748) (58-42-2,273) of GARDEN OF HORRORS
challenged VICTIM OF SOCIETY (55-3179) (53-46-2,246) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Down 27.
KING LOVE was devastated by VICTIM OF SOCIETY in a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.
Actually, it was kind of even.  And fast!  Congratulations to Victim only he can't
call himself a victim now.  He has to call himself a Victor of Society.  And King
Love can go rest.  In case we have to rescue the people up in Talahya from the
monsters.

Requiem -- Well... at least it's QUIET music. -- Darlina
P.S.  And I did give you a chance to breathe.  I didn't realize at the time that's
what I was doing, but it says so right here, and if it's in print, it must be true,
right?

Nightcap -- (sigh) -- Redfox

Julius -- You may THINK you understand duress, but you have barely begun to be
duressed, trust me on this. -- Tairikia

Nine Inch Nail -- (startled look)  I did that?  Well... good.  But using a sword to
drive nails isn't good for the blade, so I probably won't do it again. -- Damoreth
Stenn

Acid Bath -- Sounds like the right way to handle you. -- Mouse Noyle
P.S.  Only a primate would think of something like that in the first place, though.

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
