                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Hello again!

So, I keep expecting to be inducted any day now.  And I think it's finally, finally
about to happen.  Which makes me happy and sad.  Happy because I don't have to train
so hard, and I don't have to look forward to probably getting horribly injured every
fortnight and then miraculously healed up again, the better to take more injuries the
next time around.

Sad because this means retirement.  I'll be getting a stipend, and I don't have to
work at all.  That sounds great at first, but when you think about it... this could
get pretty boring.  So I'd better come up with some kind of work, hadn't I?

That decided, I've resolved to write my memoirs.  Not that I've had a lot of
adventures.  Oh, one or two.  But I think I'll write about what it's like to be a
gladiator -- not a big star, just an okay gladiator who takes a great-axe to the
forehead every so often.  Something that'll be published back in Lirith Kai to warn
the young studs what it'll be like if they become gladiators and actually make it all
the way to the Isle.  With some notes about Sheila Greywand, whom I've met a few
times when she personally healed me.  Scary woman.

I talked to an agent about my plan, and he said, "No, no, half the gladiators on the
Isle end up writing memoirs.  There's a whole section of that in the library."

I was surprised by that, based on the number of personal ads and Lord-Marshall
columns I see.  Let's have a show of hands.  Do you plan to publish written material
of any sort about being a Lord Protector?

...Scooby Doom.  Well, good for you!  I'll buy a copy when it comes out.

I'd like to thank Debbie Tonte for being... well... all blonde and curvy.  Thank you.

I'd like to thank Nebuchadnezzar for the TV challenge.  That, sir, was an honor.  You
fought very well.  And I am happy to go out with a win for my final fight.

At least, I think it's my final fight.  Is it?  Or am I still here?

                                                                Lord-Marshall Jammies

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Well, we've had the Split!  Banana, with nuts and chocolate syrup.  Pretty good.
Some people have left, and others are still here.  It's pretty much always like this.
     So, let's see.  Twenty-five fights, with two standbsy.  Seven challenges, two tv
and the rest radio.  Most avoided, Knights of Rocanis.  Most avoiding, Devil
Advocates.  Most challenged, Superior Forces (of Duplicate Redundancy).

     FALLING ROCK (29-4286) (20-34-0,36) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought ROSELLA (103-39)
(26-25-0,100) of the College of Mimes.  FALLING ROCK was overcome by ROSELLA in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute bout.  This made Rosella happy, even though the other mimes
made rude gestures because they didn't think much of beating Falling Rock.  Ha.
     STONETOOTH (29-4560) (26-36-0,40) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought ARTEMIDORUS (17-6864)
(21-6-1,69) of FIELDS OF ELYSIUM.  STONETOOTH was vanquished by ARTEMIDORUS in a 1
minute one-sided fray.  Yep.  It was like that, even though I didn't, you know,
totally watch, because my nail polish was drying.
     MANDORALLEN (56-2288) (22-14-1,60) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS fought SAVORY (32-4143)
(17-6-1,46) of SARATOGA GLORY.  MANDORALLEN demolished SAVORY in a 1 minute one-sided
melee.  Somebody told me this was unsavory.  I'm not seeing that.  It looked to me
like it was Savory all over.
     TURNIP TORNEDO (82-35257) (16-2-1,148) of GARDEN OF EVIL II fought TALL TREE
(29-4380) (25-43-0,117) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  TURNIP TORNEDO overpowered TALL TREE in a
popular 1 minute gory uneven fight.  Wow, this is totally such a surprise.
     MILLHOUSE (55-1324) (24-26-0,128) of THE SIMPSONS fought COMRADE KOOK (12-6339)
(34-30-1,115) of CULTS-R-US.  MILLHOUSE overpowered COMRADE KOOK in a popular 1
minute gruesome one-sided match.  Is this like a mill that grinds Small?  Not that I
ever knew one.  Most of the mills *I* know grind wheat or something.  Small is a bug.
I read that.
     MAGGIE (55-637) (34-46-1,159) of THE SIMPSONS fought NATAS (11-6531) (20-10-
0,136) of DO IT AGAIN.  MAGGIE lost to NATAS in a crowd pleasing 2 minute fray.  And,
you know how it goes, Natas probably will do it again.  I guess it's in his job
description.

     TRADEMARK (32-4114) (28-10-3,163) of SARATOGA GLORY fought SMUG BUG (55-2900)
(72-142-0,177) of RHYME TYME.  TRADEMARK lost to SMUG BUG in a popular 1 minute
gruesome match.  Oh!  That BUG!  I wish THAT bug would get ground small.  I think
even rotten gladiators should get inducted after two hundred fights.  It isn't like
that would make things WORSE in Primus, they're already packed like coconuts over
there.
     THE QUICKLING (70-1669) (80-185-2,161) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought MACHINE (56-
3795) (19-12-0,143) of TOOLS OF TORMENT.  THE QUICKLING was viciously subdued by
MACHINE in a popular 3 minute gory contest.  Yes, and The Quickling can go, too.  Is
there anybody here who hasn't fought him?  He just goes on and on.
     REQUIEM (11-4472) (45-35-0,198) of BALLAD OF THE BLADE fought NIGHTCAP (74-2745)
(129-117-0,189) of DARKLINGS.  REQUIEM was overpowered by NIGHTCAP in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute one-sided match.  And look at Nightcap!  Two hundred forty-six
fights plus this one, it's just, you know, too much.
     HELEN OF TROY (8-4603) (22-12-0,182) of DAPHNE'S LADIES fought DARK JUSTICE (56-
2004) (27-29-0,179) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  HELEN OF TROY was overpowered by DARK
JUSTICE in an exciting 1 minute one-sided bout.  Are you sure this is justice?  Maybe
if Helen worked on her tan for a while?
     BIONIC BUFFALO (11-6570) (40-28-0,182) of DO IT AGAIN fought CORT NIGHTJEWEL
(78-196) (95-130-0,195) of THE DRAGON FIST.  BIONIC BUFFALO was bested by CORT
NIGHTJEWEL in a crowd pleasing 1 minute brawl.  Well, pooh.  There's another one who
should have been inducted.  Maybe we need something besides Primus to induct these
fossils to?
     NOREASTER (35-3896) (39-23-1,206) of DIRT DEVILS fought JULIUS (64-3641) (131-
129-3,203) of UNDER DURESS.  NOREASTER was overpowered by JULIUS in an action packed
2 minute uneven struggle.  And Julius, too.  I'd like to duress him!  With a hot
iron, maybe.  He's got wrinkles, he's so old.

     KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (94-123-4,186) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES fought NEBUCHADNEZZAR
(22-5821) (75-54-0,205) of BLADES OF WONDER.  KOOKABURRA was handily defeated by
NEBUCHADNEZZAR in a 1 minute one-sided conflict.  That's the thing about really old
cookies, is they either get very hard, or they crumble at a single whack.
     STYLISH (32-4116) (27-11-1,232) of SARATOGA GLORY fought ROBIN OF SHEW-WOOD
(103-33) (1-0-1,220) of the College of Mimes.  STYLISH savagely defeated ROBIN OF
SHEW-WOOD in a crowd pleasing 2 minute gory match.  Oh, well, Shews.  They don't HAVE
any style, you know?
     SCOOBY DOOM (12-6021) (37-29-1,215) of HOUNDS OF HELL fought SAMARIUM (75-3071)
(49-28-1,210) of I AM SAM.  SCOOBY DOOM demolished SAMARIUM in a crowd pleasing 2
minute bloody mismatched match.  Oh, well, big dogs do that, don't they?
     GLAURUNG (67-2324) (40-14-0,223) of FATHER OF DRAGONS fought CLAUDIUS (13-2860)
(55-41-2,199) of I, CLAUDIUS.  GLAURUNG overpowered CLAUDIUS in a 1 minute one-sided
fight.  That's because fathers have to be like that.  Fierce, you know?  And besides,
Glaurung probably had a lot of little dragons at home to feed.
     SAMURAI (75-3119) (26-13-1,224) of I AM SAM fought BARBARIAN KNIGHT (56-2006)
(32-23-2,189) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  SAMURAI was vanquished by BARBARIAN KNIGHT in
an action packed 1 minute uneven fight.  That's what Conan said once, you know.  That
barbarians always win in the end.  Or maybe someone said that to him.  I forget.

The challenges:
     SHEA TANN (32-4623) (19-4-0,49) of DEVIL ADVOCATES challenged CEDAR (29-4319)
(21-17-1,61) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 12.  SHEA TANN handily defeated CEDAR in an
action packed 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.  This is so totally not surprising.
     MEGALODON (82-32285) (16-4-0,146) of DEVILS OF THE DEEP challenged SISTER X (12-
6340) (31-32-0,154) of CULTS-R-US.  Up 8.  MEGALODON devastated SISTER X in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute mismatched Challenge match.  Maybe this is a lucky day for devils
type of deal?
     SANGUINE (40-4135) (34-22-1,198) of BLOOD ANGELS challenged MORLENA (56-2163)
(25-24-1,192) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  Down 6.  SANGUINE demolished MORLENA in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge competition.  Is a blood angel a kind of devil, too?
     MALT-O-MEAL (60-7527) (36-18-1,202) of CHILDHOOD TRAUMA challenged CITY MILITIA
(56-2200) (24-18-0,183) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  Down 19, I think.  MALT-O-MEAL bested
CITY MILITIA in a popular 3 minute Challenge fight.  No wonder about that one! Malt-o
is LIKE that.
     CORRUPTION (82-22745) (27-10-0,235) of THE BROTHERHOOD 40 challenged SUPERIOR
FORCES (33-4543) (108-154-3,201) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY.  Down 34.  CORRUPTION
overpowered SUPERIOR FORCES in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge duel.  Do you suppose
if you leave your forces too long on the shelf, they go bad?  All flabby and stuff.

Here are the tv challenges, and congratulations to the guys who have them.
     DEFIANCE (32-4619) (17-0-1,72) of ANGELS OF PAIN TV challenged BLACK WOLF (29-
4194) (33-30-1,97) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 25.  DEFIANCE demolished BLACK WOLF in a 1
minute one-sided Challenge melee.  So now Black Wolf gets to try out some angelic
pain or something?
     BLOODY EASTER BUNNY (6-5877) (25-7-3,167) of HOLIDAY HORRORS TV challenged SAM
(70-466) (15-8-0,160) of CHEERS.  Down 7.  BLOODY EASTER BUNNY viciously subdued SAM
in a 2 minute Challenge fight.  That Bunny!  It just so... bloody.

     For being Lord Marshall, since Jammies did get Inducted and hauled kicking and
screaming off to Primus now:  TOM BOMBADIL (64-3936) (57-27-0,279) of MAIAR fought 
KING LOVE (40-3748) (71-52-2,217) of GARDEN OF HORRORS.  TOM BOMBADIL overcame KING
LOVE in a popular 3 minute Title bout.  Congratulations to Tom.

                                       Debby T.

Nebuchadnezzar -- Wow, a TV challenge!  And from someone of your style... gotta say I
was pretty nervous going into the fight.  And I've gotta say, you hurt me pretty
badly.  I really recommend that you use an off-hand weapon, though. -- Jammies

Scooby Doom -- Thank you for greatly reducing the chance that I'll succeed Jammies on
the throne.  Good dog! -- Nightcap

Defiance -- Huh, just about what I'd expect from an elf.  Tell everyone you're an
angel and then go around beating up on people who are smaller. -- Cedar

Turnip Tornedo -- Horrible indeed. -- Tall Tree

Artemidorus -- At least I don't have to worry about killing you. -- Black Wolf

Shea Tann -- Oh.  It's you. -- Falling Rock
P.S.  According to the script, I'm supposed to say, "Good fight."  Consider that I
did, but without sincerity.

Mandorallen -- I always knew the Rocani were not to be trusted. -- Stonetooth

Debby Tonte -- There's more to life, even for a gladiator, than winning fights. --
