                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Citizens of Free Blades, I bid you greetings!

My name is Scooby Doom and I'mon BAAAAD dog.  Unfortunately there are a large number
of bigger and more skilled dogs on this block, but somehow I managed to retain my
title and I get this fun opportunity to write a column for you all once again.

How did I get into the dueling gig?  Well let me tell you--one day we were all out
for a cruise in the Mystery Mobile, me, Flamin' Freddy, Violent Velma, Dangerous
Daphne and my ol' buddy The Shagginator.  As usual, Freddy forgot to get gas before
we left and Shaggy and I were busy chowing down on a double mocha, caramel pizza, so
we didn't notice either.  So of course the car conks out on some deserted back road
in the middle of nowhere.

Velma and Freddy instantly decided to march over to this creepy, disgusting old
house.  Deserted, as usual.  And we went in.  The typical zaniness ensued.  Lots of
running, chasing and a howling,crazed ghost.  Velma came up with a crazy plan that
involved a giant fan, a feather pillow, some motor oil and a carrot...

While the plan was coming unraveled, I decided to hide in a closet.  Of course I
notice the glowing archway a little too late and the next thing I know I'm in a lab
run by some guy called the Dark One.

He offered me unlimited pizza for life if I let him experiment on me and the next
thing I know I'm a gladiator.  If could be worse.  At least I don't have to deal with
Fred and Daphne's unrequited lust, Velma's BRILLIANT plans and Shaggy eating all the
good food...

So that's me.  See you all next turn, with any luck!

Scooby Doom

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     It's windy and rainy and all the neighbors are out watching floods and my head
aches.  That's probably the clouds.  And trying to understand why not having a floor
sander means the carpenter can't finish the basement stairs or the windows in the
upstairs hall.  I'm just totally not seeing this.  The stairs don't get sanded, the
windows don't get sanded, so why not do them while he's waiting for the sander?

     Zontani says that "Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!"  Why?  What's wrong
with pantyhose?  Besides getting snags in them sometimes and a few things like that.
But why shouldn't somebody wear them?
     Roman Heroes were avoided by Holiday Horrors, and I think they should be GLAD.
     Barbarian Knight got the most challenges.
     Nobody died.
     We had thirty-one fights, with only two standbys, which is GREAT!  And fifteen
challenges, two tv and the rest radio.

     WILD THANG! (29-2393) (17-15-0,46) of STREET WALKERS fought BITTER ALMOND (103-
41) (14-16-4,50) of the College of Mimes.  WILD THANG! overpowered BITTER ALMOND in a
popular 1 minute gruesome one-sided bout.  This is, you know, why Almond is bitter.
     DIRTY SANCHEZ (29-4802) (19-10-0,67) of STREET WALKERS fought FALLING ROCK (29-
4286) (20-32-0,31) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  DIRTY SANCHEZ overpowered FALLING ROCK in a 1
minute one-sided match.  Have these two guys done this before?  It sure looked like
they've been practicing.
     SHEA TANN (32-4623) (18-3-0,57) of DEVIL ADVOCATES fought CEDAR (29-4319) (20-
16-1,43) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  SHEA TANN was overcome by CEDAR in a 1 minute fight.
Shea is new, so this is, you know, dues.
     GOKU (96-2399) (10-2-4,49) of D B Z fought DEFIANCE (32-4619) (15-0-1,46) of
ANGELS OF PAIN.  GOKU was overpowered by DEFIANCE in a 1 minute uneven fight.  It's
just amazing how many pickles there are on the Isle.  Maybe that's because SHE is so
sour most of the time?
     FREIZA (97-2823) (11-1-3,68) of DB2 fought GOLDIE (29-4805) (20-9-4,73) of
STREET WALKERS.  FREIZA was handily defeated by GOLDIE in a 1 minute one-sided duel.
Wow, this is something or other, when a regular arena gladiator has more kills than a
bloodgamer!

     DARK JUSTICE (56-2004) (26-28-0,166) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS fought COMRADE KOOK
(12-6339) (34-28-1,150) of CULTS-R-US.  DARK JUSTICE vanquished COMRADE KOOK in an
action packed 1 minute one-sided fray.  So, is this justice, or what?  Don't ask me!
     SAM (70-466) (14-7-0,155) of CHEERS fought SMUG BUG (55-2900) (71-141-0,147) of
RHYME TYME.  SAM luckily beat SMUG BUG in a 2 minute brutal melee.  I don't care if
it's luck or not, just do it.
     BUD THE SPUD (29-1300) (39-29-2,192) of STREET WALKERS fought AZREAL ELS (55-
3117) (26-17-4,167) of EASTERN HORDE.  BUD THE SPUD overpowered AZREAL ELS in a
popular 1 minute one-sided duel.  Does this mean Bud is western?
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (128-116-0,194) of DARKLINGS fought SISTER X (12-6340) (31-
30-0,178) of CULTS-R-US.  NIGHTCAP won victory over SISTER X in a 2 minute match.
Gosh, is anybody surprised?
     BIONIC BUFFALO (11-6570) (39-27-0,205) of DO IT AGAIN fought MAGGIE (55-637)
(34-44-1,158) of THE SIMPSONS.  BIONIC BUFFALO overpowered MAGGIE in a popular 1
minute one-sided match.  These two are both strange, and they probably deserve each
other.

     MORLENA (56-2163) (25-22-1,200) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS fought CORT NIGHTJEWEL
(78-196) (94-129-0,196) of THE DRAGON FIST.  MORLENA lost to CORT NIGHTJEWEL in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute fray.  Well, too bad, but this kind of thing happens.  Lots.
But someday, Cort will get Inducted and we won't have to trip over him every two
weeks.
     NOREASTER (35-3896) (37-23-1,188) of DIRT DEVILS fought THE QUICKLING (70-1669)
(80-183-2,176) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  NOREASTER subdued THE QUICKLING in an action
packed 2 minute bout.  Good to see.  I mean, a record like the Quickling's makes me
twitch, and I hate twitching.
     SANGUINE (40-4135) (34-20-1,212) of BLOOD ANGELS fought ARUNDA ROCKTROLL (103-
35) (60-40-2,190) of the College of Mimes.  SANGUINE was unbelievably bested by
ARUNDA ROCKTROLL in a popular 6 minute bout.  I didn't want to believe it, either,
but there it is.
     JULIUS (64-3641) (130-128-3,337) of UNDER DURESS fought KING LOVE (40-3748) (69-
52-2,195) of GARDEN OF HORRORS.  JULIUS was overcome by KING LOVE in a 2 minute
competition.  Well, you know, I don't actually like King Love a lot, I mean, he's
gooey, you know?  But this was good anyway.
     HIMEY THE PIMP (29-730) (42-33-1,215) of STREET WALKERS fought KOOKABURRA (33-
4151) (94-121-4,187) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.  HIMEY THE PIMP beat KOOKABURRA in a
popular 1 minute match.  Crumbs everywhere, and a stupid bird squawking.

     And here we are already at the challenge matches!
     CATASTROPHE (71-6273) (8-2-0,76) of THE BROTHERHOOD 98 challenged MANDORALLEN
(56-2288) (21-13-1,46) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  Down 32.  CATASTROPHE devastated
MANDORALLEN in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  How did Catastrophe get here
with so few fights?  It must be something strange, like being a Champion of the Dead
or something.
     ARTEMIDORUS (17-6864) (20-5-1,76) of FIELDS OF ELYSIUM challenged STONETOOTH
(29-4560) (26-34-0,50) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 26.  ARTEMIDORUS devastated
STONETOOTH in an exciting 1 minute uneven Challenge duel.  Way it goes some days.
     NATAS (11-6531) (18-10-0,91) of DO IT AGAIN challenged BLACK WOLF (29-4194) (32-
29-1,81) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 10.  NATAS overpowered BLACK WOLF in a 1 minute
one-sided Challenge duel.  Just call us Darkholm North, you know?
     TURNIP TORNEDO (82-35257) (14-2-1,136) of GARDEN OF EVIL II challenged TALL TREE
(29-4380) (25-41-0,118) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 18.  TURNIP TORNEDO demolished TALL
TREE in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge brawl.
     MEGALODON (82-32285) (15-3-0,109) of DEVILS OF THE DEEP challenged YAMA (82-
11638) (21-16-0,117) of DEATH HORDE VI.  Up 8.  MEGALODON was devastated by YAMA in
an exciting 1 minute mismatched Challenge conflict.  Well, I guess now we see why all
the down challenges, huh?

     CLAUDIUS (13-2860) (53-41-2,179) of I, CLAUDIUS challenged SUPERIOR FORCES (33-
4543) (107-153-3,180) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY.  Up 1.  CLAUDIUS overpowered SUPERIOR
FORCES in an exciting 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  This is good.  This is
good.
     SAMARIUM (75-3071) (47-28-1,190) of I AM SAM challenged BARBARIAN KNIGHT (56-
2006) (32-21-2,183) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  Down 7.  SAMARIUM defeated BARBARIAN
KNIGHT in an action packed 1 minute Challenge match.  Sure.
     CORRUPTION (82-22745) (25-10-0,207) of THE BROTHERHOOD 40 challenged TRASH QUAM
(19-3751) (39-29-2,202) of EASTERN HORDE 3.  Down 5.  CORRUPTION overpowered TRASH
QUAM in a 2 minute gory uneven Challenge duel.
     REPRISAL (82-14465) (21-10-1,205) of THE BROTHERHOOD 10 challenged HARVESTER OF
PAIN (56-1412) (37-39-4,188) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  Down 17.  REPRISAL was viciously
subdued by HARVESTER OF PAIN in a 4 minute Challenge duel.  Ha!
     REQUIEM (11-4472) (44-34-0,200) of BALLAD OF THE BLADE challenged CITY MILITIA
(56-2200) (24-16-0,192) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  Down 8.  REQUIEM devastated CITY
MILITIA in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge competition.

     HAYSEED X-IV (82-6120) (29-20-2,209) of PROJECT HAYSEED challenged ROCK A BYE
(33-4653) (62-38-4,274) of EASTERN HORDE.  Up lots.  Um, 65?  Something like that.
This is insane.  HAYSEED X-IV devastated ROCK A BYE in a 2 minute one-sided Challenge
duel.  But, you know, crazy like a fox insane, I guess.
     MALT-O-MEAL (60-7527) (35-17-1,206) of CHILDHOOD TRAUMA challenged FUNNY BUNNY
(55-1862) (158-159-2,291) of RHYME TYME.  Up 85.  Why do people do this?  MALT-O-MEAL
was devastated by FUNNY BUNNY in a 2 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  And they
aren't even new jokes.
     HELEN OF TROY (8-4603) (21-11-0,182) of DAPHNE'S LADIES challenged ANTHRAXUS
(33-5723) (33-25-1,190) of DEATH HORDE.  Up 8.  HELEN OF TROY was overpowered by
ANTHRAXUS in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge duel.

     And the two tv challenges, for which people get congratulations.
     BLOODY EASTER BUNNY (6-5877) (24-6-3,144) of HOLIDAY HORRORS TV challenged
MILLHOUSE (55-1324) (23-25-0,151) of THE SIMPSONS.  Up 7.  BLOODY EASTER BUNNY was
subdued by MILLHOUSE in an exciting 5 minute Challenge melee.
     SAMURAI (75-3119) (24-13-1,201) of I AM SAM TV challenged PARTY'S OVER (75-2179)
(47-34-0,232) of EASTERN HORDE.  Up 31.  SAMURAI bested PARTY'S OVER in a crowd
pleasing 4 minute gruesome Challenge fight.

     For the title, a random match:  SCOOBY DOOM (12-6021) (36-28-1,245) of HOUNDS OF
HELL fought JAMMIES (74-2829) (122-95-1,222) of DARKLINGS.  SCOOBY DOOM was
overpowered by JAMMIES in an exciting 1 minute one-sided Title bout.  This is too
bad, because Scooby wrote a great column and now I'll have to kidnap Jammies'
teddybear to get him to do one.  But if Jammies is going to Primus, maybe we'll have
Scooby back next time?  Or soon, anyway.

The Mad Carrot -- I like that braided orange beard.  Is that a dwarf thing?  Because
I can't get my facial hair to grow long enough to braid, no way.  Does having it
braided help keep food out of it? -- Nightcap

Anthraxus -- That was an amazing train.  As if you weren't scary enough already!  I'm
throwing a party for you with a Grandmaster cake. -- Jammies
P.S.  Why isn't your record better?
P.P.S.  It's a going-away party for me, too.  I got inducted.  *sad face*

Turnip Tornedo -- Good fight. -- Tall Tree

Megalodon -- Good fight. -- Black Wolf
