                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Greetings all and well met!  Before a few turns ago it had been an age and a day
since my last Title.  I don't even believe that my home arena exists any longer
that's how long it has been.  Only Julius is still around from Kurukar.  I remember
tangling with him a few times back in old Kurukar.  He was a worthy warrior.

I have achieved the Title of Lord Marshall of Free Blades by defeating my former
alliance mate Nebuchandnezzar in an epic battle.  I had long desired to test myself
against him as he is one of the finest of his style that I have ever known.  I've had
some success against those of his style in the past and I wanted to see if I could
continue my fortunes against him.  Fortunately for me after a long and brutal battle
I was able to come out on top.

I escaped from the land of Primus almost a year ago now.  Now that I am out I plan on
staying out for as long as is possible.  I do have some room to improve and still
stay comfortably in my current classification.  I shall need to improve as well
considering my poor performance of 3-3 in this most recent Face to Face tourney in
Atlanta.  I hope to do much better in the Mail In in October.

This turn's challenges go out to Party's Over as a welcome back to Mr Mojo to the
ranks of the active and I think to Funny Bunny though I can't remember after taking a
few too many blows to the head at the face to face.  I need to go train now if I am
to retain my title of Lord Marshall.

Tom Bombadil, Lord Marshall

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     It has been a busy day and a busy week.  I make no excuses and no apologies.
Things are as they are.  But we do not need this pig, this Snide Clemens, to do a spy
report here.
     We thank Tom Bombadil, loyal citizen of Kurukar, for his Lord Marshall's column,
and we wish him the best of fortunes in the future.
     We note that Blades of Wonder were avoided by the Eastern Horde.  It is presumed
that there were reasons for this.
     We note further that Drizzt, the Andorian interloper, received the most
challenges.  This is as it should be.
     There were thirty-one fights, of which several involved standbys.  I mislaid
that note, but I think it was six.  Thirteen challenges were carried through, one of
them being a tourney victor's challenges.
     There was a death.

Let us examine the details:
     ENLIGHTENED BEING (26-4642) (23-10-0,85) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought COMRADE KOOK
(12-6339) (25-19-1,85) of CULTS-R-US.  ENLIGHTENED BEING demolished COMRADE KOOK in a
1 minute uneven contest.  Andorians and Shews.  Who can fathom their motives or their
desires?
     YAMA (82-11638) (14-11-0,86) of DEATH HORDE VI fought ROSELLA (103-39) (26-25-
0,100) of the College of Mimes.  YAMA savagely defeated ROSELLA in a popular 3 minute
gruesome bout.  Though Yama is an Eg, we salute him for dealing firmly with this
mime.  Nobody likes a mime.  I don't care how much the mimes are educated.
     MORLENA (56-2163) (19-10-1,137) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS fought MALT-O-MEAL (60-
7527) (24-10-1,147) of CHILDHOOD TRAUMA.  MORLENA was luckily beaten by MALT-O-MEAL
in a popular 3 minute gory match.  It was not luck, no, it was the favor of Kjarran,
for these islanders from Aradi are beginning to look with favor upon the way of the
Glorious Empire.  And who can feel concern for caravan raiders, which are all that
come out of Rocanis.
     MACHINE (56-3795) (18-11-0,109) of TOOLS OF TORMENT fought MAREI (103-37) (38-
32-2,150) of the College of Mimes.  MACHINE overpowered MAREI in a popular 1 minute
uneven duel.  It is a difficult question to decide which is less objectionable, the
caravan raider or the mime.  Let both of them be gone from my sight.  I cannot abide
it.

     JAMMIES (74-2829) (107-92-1,209) of DARKLINGS fought MILLHOUSE (55-1324) (19-11-
0,170) of THE SIMPSONS.  JAMMIES handily defeated MILLHOUSE in a popular 1 minute
one-sided duel.  Ah, what can one say?  You hear talk of the honor of the Adantri,
but did not this Jammies come into the battle bringing the crushing weight of his
experience?
     NIGHTFALL (74-2421) (147-116-4,182) of DARKLINGS fought DARK JUSTICE (56-2004)
(21-15-0,171) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  NIGHTFALL executed DARK JUSTICE in a 1 minute
one-sided fray.  And again, as before.  Who is this Nightfall with so many more
fights than Dark Justice (caravan raider though he may be) to deal so harshly with
him?  Can we allow this?
     NOREASTER (35-3896) (28-14-1,199) of DIRT DEVILS fought SISTER X (12-6340) (26-
17-0,165) of CULTS-R-US.  NOREASTER was viciously subdued by SISTER X in an action
packed 2 minute gruesome bout.  Barbarians the two of them.  There is little to
choose between Riztab and Murska.
     KYRLANIA (70-2327) (110-123-1,187) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought DREHVIN (103-34)
(75-45-7,200) of the College of Mimes.  KYRLANIA overpowered DREHVIN in a popular 2
minute brutal one-sided duel.  An academic curiosity, this match.  One watches and
shakes the head.  There are gladiators here who have not had managerial attention in
years, and yet they continue to show up and fight as last commanded to do so.  Do we
commend their steadfastness or marvel at their foolish hopes?

     THE QUICKLING (70-1669) (76-169-2,197) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought ROBIN OF SHEW-
WOOD (103-33) (1-0-1,220) of the College of Mimes.  THE QUICKLING was defeated by
ROBIN OF SHEW-WOOD in an action packed 2 minute fight.  This is one occasion when a
mime and a Shew may be saluted, for this Quickling person has annoyed Debra.  She
will not say why, but such annoyance is unacceptable.  Especially from someone who
cannot defeat a Shew.
     TRYURLUCK (61-1029) (112-79-1,204) of BLOOD KNIGHTS fought TRADEMARK (32-4114)
(28-8-3,178) of SARATOGA GLORY.  TRYURLUCK handily defeated TRADEMARK in an exciting
1 minute one-sided contest.  How is it that this gladiator from Jurine of the
Thousand Fountains would beat a horse?  It seems unworthy.
     REDFOX (13-4197) (79-122-0,198) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought ALVIN (16-3927) (52-31-
1,181) of AARON'S ANGELS.  REDFOX was overpowered by ALVIN in a 1 minute uneven fray.
Quite proper.  The Dullards must know their place.
     ROYLAND (56-3380) (121-78-0,195) of REDHORSE fought JULIUS (64-3641) (116-124-
2,186) of UNDER DURESS.  ROYLAND overpowered JULIUS in a 1 minute one-sided duel.
Unfortunate indeed, and Julius shall bear the wrath of many for this Royland is an
evil man who has been stalking Debra!

     BARBARIAN KNIGHT (56-2006) (25-10-2,205) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS fought
WWW.QUAM.COM (82-4467) (31-34-4,175) of EASTERN HORDE 2.  BARBARIAN KNIGHT handily
defeated WWW.QUAM.COM in a 1 minute mismatched competition.  Barbarians all, if the
truth be told.  I have no sympathy for them.
     FUNNY BUNNY (55-1862) (143-156-2,229) of RHYME TYME fought MAGGIE (55-637) (27-
33-1,184) of THE SIMPSONS.  FUNNY BUNNY overpowered MAGGIE in a 1 minute one-sided
match.  To be fallen on by this overweight rabbit is doubtless unpleasant, but both
are Khalanians, and there may be old quarrels between them.
     BIONIC BUFFALO (11-6570) (32-16-0,213) of DO IT AGAIN fought HARVESTER OF PAIN
(56-1412) (30-28-4,217) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  BIONIC BUFFALO was overpowered by
HARVESTER OF PAIN in a 1 minute one-sided match.  Undoubtedly this Harvester is or
has been a raider of caravans, but if he will trounce the Andorian, do we care?
     SANGUINE (40-4135) (26-10-1,216) of BLOOD ANGELS fought ROCK A BYE (33-4653)
(52-36-3,209) of EASTERN HORDE.  SANGUINE was bested by ROCK A BYE in a crowd
pleasing 3 minute gory brawl.  It is widely said, and with truth, that the people of
Niatoli are pirates, no more and no less, but at least they are doughty in battle.  A
strange concept which seems to imply the occurence of bread somewhere.
     SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) (100-142-2,220) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY fought LOPING
WOLF (56-1796) (95-150-0,194) of REDHORSE.  SUPERIOR FORCES bested LOPING WOLF in an
action packed 3 minute brutal duel.  Yes, well, when one antique fights another, and
neither is of the True Race, what can we do but shrug and enjoy the show?

     Ah, the challenge matches.
     MECHANISM (56-3796) (18-11-1,100) of TOOLS OF TORMENT challenged MOUSE NOYLE
(17-6252) (48-79-0,66) of MIDDLE WAY.  Down 34.  MECHANISM was subdued by MOUSE NOYLE
in a popular 2 minute bloody Challenge brawl.  Long has it been said that the
barbarians of the South have no honor, and though Noyle is a Mouse, he is a Mouse of
the Glorious Empire.  This was well done.
     D (82-44) (23-15-0,149) of EASTERN HORDE 4 challenged DRIZZT (40-4146) (29-24-
0,180) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Up 31.  D overcame DRIZZT in an exciting 1 minute
Challenge contest.  It is acceptable.  Who could mourn the losses of someone whose
name suggests the worst weather of the winter and the illnesses arising therefrom?
     DR MAX (73-5311) (25-4-0,164) of RACE THE WIND challenged DAMORETH STENN (65-
6105) (63-91-1,176) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 12.  DR MAX overpowered DAMORETH STENN in an
exciting 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Entirely what we have come to expect of
this Adantri.  At least he has been known to accept his losses with good humor.
     NEBUCHADNEZZAR (22-5821) (62-50-0,205) of BLADES OF WONDER challenged NIGHTCAP
(74-2745) (118-108-0,243) of DARKLINGS.  Up 38.  NEBUCHADNEZZAR savagely defeated
NIGHTCAP in an exciting 4 minute Challenge fight.  Though this Nebuchadnezzar is an
Andorian, we salute his victory as an underdog.  One who can be victorious when at a
disadvantage is truly favored by Kjarran.

     ANTHRAXUS (33-5723) (28-19-1,196) of DEATH HORDE challenged STYLISH (32-4116)
(25-11-1,200) of SARATOGA GLORY.  Up 4.  ANTHRAXUS was vanquished by STYLISH in a 1
minute uneven Challenge fight.  Another victory well won, for all must strive against
disease.  It is true that some priests claim disease comes as a judgment of the Dark
God on sinners, but it may be that this is not so.
     SCOOBY DOOM (12-6021) (28-18-1,202) of HOUNDS OF HELL challenged CORT NIGHTJEWEL
(78-196) (85-120-0,193) of THE DRAGON FIST.  Down 9.  SCOOBY DOOM lost to CORT
NIGHTJEWEL in an action packed 1 minute Challenge duel.  On the whole, not to be
wondered at.  Riztablets were always fools.
     SAMARIUM (75-3071) (35-22-1,200) of I AM SAM challenged SMUG BUG (55-2900) (65-
129-0,200) of RHYME TYME.  Straight across.  SAMARIUM overcame SMUG BUG in an action
packed 2 minute Challenge fight.  Ah, very good!  I cannot abide bugs, though it is
said they have some purpose in their existence.
     KING LOVE (40-3748) (62-44-2,193) of GARDEN OF HORRORS challenged TAIRIKIA (51-
4247) (122-100-2,193) of SAND DANCERS.  Straight across.  KING LOVE was narrowly
defeated by TAIRIKIA in an exciting 7 minute Challenge struggle.  Andorians and
Rirorni, they are both barbarians.  Who can choose between them?

     LIMA BEAN FLAMBE (70-3118) (42-34-0,195) of HEAVE HO! challenged DARLINA (74-
2995) (64-70-3,207) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 12.  LIMA BEAN FLAMBE was bested by DARLINA
in an action packed 1 minute Challenge brawl.  This Darlina eats lima beans?  Remind
me to avoid her at all costs.
     TRASH QUAM (19-3751) (30-26-2,188) of EASTERN HORDE 3 challenged T-BONE (13-
3139) (45-32-0,189) of LEGION OF DUMB.  Up 1.  TRASH QUAM bested T-BONE in a popular
4 minute brutal Challenge fight.  Natural enough, for Trash is a true son of the
Eternal City, after all.
     REQUIEM (11-4472) (33-27-0,243) of BALLAD OF THE BLADE challenged MOJO-JOJO (12-
3867) (49-38-1,225) of EASTERN HORDE.  Down 18.  REQUIEM overpowered MOJO-JOJO in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge duel.  The presence of these Andorians is distressing.
Even if they have converted to the True God, they must be lesser for lacking the Pure
Blood, is this not so?
     DARTMAN (33-7161) (57-25-3,270) of COLGATE DAYS challenged PARTY'S OVER (75-
2179) (39-31-0,222) of EASTERN HORDE.  Down 48.  DARTMAN was subdued by PARTY'S OVER
in an exciting 1 minute Challenge melee.  Pirates, one and all.  Did I not say so?

     Our tourney victor, CORRUPTION (82-22745) (14-3-0,115) of THE BROTHERHOOD 40 TV
challenged JAVELINO (56-3728) (43-48-1,139) of REDHORSE.  Up 24.  CORRUPTION
devastated JAVELINO in an action packed 2 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  It is
good to see this porcine caravan raider defeated, even though it is an Egg who does
it.  I salute the Tourney Victor.

     For the title:  TOM BOMBADIL (64-3936) (55-27-0,253) of MAIAR fought KELOS (55-
30) (97-134-5,214) of ROCANIS RIDERS.  TOM BOMBADIL handily defeated KELOS in a
popular 1 minute uneven Title fight.  This is well done, for it is known that these
"Rocanis Riders" have spent many years raiding the caravans in the south.  And while
we do not care so much what happens among the southern barbarians, still, to raid the
caravans is a Bad Deed.  So Tom Bombadil, loyal son of the Glorious Empire, deserves
our salute for turning back this unworthy contender.

I will HIT HIM OVER THE HEAD with my skis!  FIND MY SKIS.  This is IMPORTANT.  I will
get a Shew to hold him while I hit him with my skis!  Two Shews, or some Orcs!

     It is this association with gladiators that makes her violent.  I will have to
     keep her away.  There is no help for it.

The tongues found under one of the seats here in the arena and NOT claimed for WEEKS
have passed beyond the point where any sane person could use them, alas.  Frankly,
they're more than a bit whiff.  If your tongue was among those taken by the Cat and
abandoned, well, too bad.  I vote we deposit them all on the doorstep of the Caravan
Raiders' guild, ah, that would be Redhorse and the Rocanis Riders.  If they can eat
"aged" Mini Misty Livers, they can eat well-ripened managerial tongues.  I wash my
hands and fumigate my office of them. -- Betty Lu, Arena Lost and Found

     This is irresponsible.  If these Caravan Raiders, though I find no such team
     listed here, will eat the tongues, then they must pay for them.  The arena is
     not made of money, to give away food to unsocial raiders.

To whatever wag is responsible for the latest outrage on the beach:  leaving behind
unmentionable female undergarments was disgusting.  Leaving unmentionable male
undergarments right beside it was Worse.  Hanging a row of diapers beside them is NOT
FUNNY.  A guard will be kept on this tree, and any further additions will be Sternly
Punished.
