                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

First off, the boss sends his apologies for not having me write a column the past two
cycles.  Says something about a hectic life.  Personally, I dont' see it--he gives us
marching orders every two weeks, and the rest of the time he sits there sipping some
bizzare sort of ale he calls "Olde Frothingslosh".

Anyway, I may not fight as an aimed blow, but I'm not entirely a slouch, as Claudius
just learned.  In fact, the Commission notified the boss that I will shortly be
restricted to the Primus arena only.  I'm not entirely sure how long until I'm re-
registered and fighting there, but until then, let's see if I can keep this throne.

Ichabod is apparently too under the weather to file the paperwork, so Nebuchadnezzar,
this cycle's your shot at regaining the throne: no challenges, no avoids.  Let's see
if I can do better than my teammate Melkor fared, should you challenge me.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Listen!  I've been think about this a lot, and what I think is, winter should be
optional.  And shorter.  And somewhere else.  I mean, I don't mind going to the
mountains to ski, but I don't want ski weather HERE.  Oh, well, nobody listens to me.

     Knights of Rocanis were avoided by Do It Again.  I guess they did it again.
     Comrade Kook got the most challenges.
     We had twenty-seven fights with three standbys.  Twelve challenge matches, two
of them tv.

     NAKHA ADIASO (56-2615) (21-22-0,80) of INCONSISTENT FURY fought LUCIFREYJA (103-
40) (19-21-1,90) of the College of Mimes.  NAKHA ADIASO viciously subdued LUCIFREYJA
in a popular 5 minute brutal fray.  Listen, this was probably consistent.  You might
want to watch that.
     CEDAR (29-4319) (24-27-2,95) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought WONDER BUBBLE (56-3522)
(16-10-2,44) of INCONSISTENT FURY.  CEDAR overpowered WONDER BUBBLE in a 1 minute
one-sided fight.  Challenge and avoid, Bubble.
     DAGA TERS (56-2627) (22-11-1,120) of INCONSISTENT FURY fought MANDORALLEN (56-
2288) (31-18-1,133) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  DAGA TERS was narrowly defeated by
MANDORALLEN in a 3 minute competition.  How wide is a narrow defeat?  I never did
figure that one out.
     JEO THE SONGSMITH (1-3260) (39-75-0,113) of BLUE EYRIE fought BLACK WOLF (29-
4194) (39-37-1,108) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  JEO THE SONGSMITH lost to BLACK WOLF in a
popular 2 minute gruesome fray.  That's a wolf for you.
     JADRA (61-3379) (21-9-1,164) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought MAGGIE (55-637) (40-53-
1,152) of THE SIMPSONS.  JADRA was overpowered by MAGGIE in an exciting 1 minute
uneven match.  It confused the bookies, too.  Good.

     CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-196) (103-135-0,204) of THE DRAGON FIST fought SEKHAT (7-
2251) (26-30-1,164) of CASTAWAYS.  CORT NIGHTJEWEL overpowered SEKHAT in a popular 1
minute uneven fight.  Some people really should retire.  But maybe he'll get
Inducted.
     GIMME SOME SUGAR (19-4936) (22-5-0,190) of ARMY OF DARKNESS fought RETRIBUTION
(74-2982) (32-23-1,195) of BROTHERHOOD.  GIMME SOME SUGAR was savagely defeated by
RETRIBUTION in a popular 2 minute fight.  This is very something-or-other.  Poetical?
I don't see how that can be it, even if one of the Commission scribes suggested it.
I didn't hear any, you know, rhymes.
     DARK JUSTICE (56-2004) (32-37-0,188) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS fought DREHVIN (103-
34) (75-45-7,200) of the College of Mimes.  DARK JUSTICE viciously subdued DREHVIN in
a crowd pleasing 2 minute gory fray.  Good!  Get those mimes coming and going.
     JUDGE (56-119) (56-39-2,202) of INCONSISTENT FURY fought SUPERIOR FORCES (33-
4543) (111-164-3,194) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY.  JUDGE viciously subdued SUPERIOR
FORCES in a popular 3 minute gruesome match.  Okay, this is good.  The fossil thing
again.
     SAMURAI (75-3119) (35-17-1,262) of I AM SAM fought SMUG BUG (55-2900) (79-148-
0,210) of RHYME TYME.  SAMURAI devastated SMUG BUG in a popular 2 minute one-sided
contest.  Squish that bug!  He's probably a Japanese Beetle in disguise.

     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (139-120-0,247) of DARKLINGS fought MOTHER MARY (70-691) (44-
34-3,203) of SPREAD THE DISEASE.  NIGHTCAP savagely defeated MOTHER MARY in a popular
1 minute bloody match.  Wow, a mother-beater!  Listen, everybody, throw veggies at
Nightcap!
     NECROMANCER (48-1041) (37-20-2,227) of NIGHT'S GUARDIANS fought BIONIC BUFFALO
(11-6570) (44-37-0,193) of DO IT AGAIN.  NECROMANCER beat BIONIC BUFFALO in an
exciting 2 minute match.  Somebody told me this involved dark magic, moving around,
like, souls and stuff, but I don't get it.  Does the Bionic Buffalo HAVE a soul?
     JULIUS (64-3641) (141-132-3,221) of UNDER DURESS fought DESERT GYPSY (56-2105)
(29-12-3,212) of INCONSISTENT FURY.  JULIUS viciously subdued DESERT GYPSY in a crowd
pleasing 4 minute gory brawl.  And how is this a surprise?  I mean, if you look up
"fossil" in the dictionary, there's a picture of Julius.  Not a good picture, it was
taken a long time ago, but still.
     MORLENA (56-2163) (31-31-1,216) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS fought DREHVIN (103-34)
(75-45-7,200) of the College of Mimes.  MORLENA overpowered DREHVIN in an action
packed 1 minute brutal uneven struggle.  Brutal, huh?  I don't know if I'd have
called it brutal.  Sure, Morlena smiled, but she's supposed to smile, she won.
     MELKOR (13-1821) (43-18-0,216) of SILMARILLIAD fought DREAM WEAVER (56-1959)
(29-19-1,205) of INCONSISTENT FURY.  MELKOR slimly won victory over DREAM WEAVER in a
popular 4 minute gruesome conflict.  No more dreams, just headaches.

The challenges:
     PREATORIAN (56-4005) (22-12-1,79) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS challenged STONETOOTH
(29-4560) (30-45-0,93) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 14.  PREATORIAN was devastated by
STONETOOTH in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge battle.  That's weird.  I heard
Stonetooth was going for a root canal next week, and *I* thought he'd be distracted.
Guess not.
     CORNELIUS (31-3485) (18-3-1,58) of CAESAR'S POOL HALL challenged FALLING ROCK 
(29-4286) (24-43-0,75) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 17.  CORNELIUS demolished FALLING ROCK
in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge competition.  Would you believe, falling gravel?
Maybe sand.
     ALDALDON (56-3913) (22-12-1,112) of PHILANTHROPISTS challenged TALL TREE (29-
4380) (25-56-0,119) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 7.  ALDALDON viciously subdued TALL TREE
in a popular 2 minute brutal Challenge bout.  Well, it's the season to be cutting
firewood, after all.
     SAM (70-466) (19-17-0,141) of CHEERS challenged THE QUICKLING (70-1669) (84-194-
2,178) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  Up 37.  SAM vanquished THE QUICKLING in an exciting 1
minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Fossil chips.  I like mine with ranch dip.  Or
sour cream and onions, maybe.
     NYZEIL OGLATA (17-6753) (25-13-1,159) of PHILANTHROPISTS challenged COMRADE KOOK
(12-6339) (37-40-1,164) of CULTS-R-US.  Up 5.  NYZEIL OGLATA was slaughtered by
COMRADE KOOK in a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  Wow!  Talk about "unnecessary
roughness"!  Good thing this is the Isle and we can expect to see our Comrade out
there again next time.

     CATASTROPHE (71-6273) (13-2-0,173) of THE BROTHERHOOD 98 challenged CITY MILITIA
(56-2200) (28-27-0,199) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  Up 24.  CATASTROPHE was handily
defeated by CITY MILITIA in a 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.  We need that City
Militia keeping order in other places, too.  These guys are good.
     MILLHOUSE (55-1324) (30-33-0,202) of THE SIMPSONS challenged MALT-O-MEAL (60-
7527) (44-23-1,205) of CHILDHOOD TRAUMA.  Up 3.  MILLHOUSE savagely defeated MALT-O-
MEAL in a crowd pleasing 5 minute Challenge brawl.  Some kids just throw their cereal
on the floor, but Millhouse made a REAL mess.  Although rubbing it into the
Arenamaster's hair was probably, you know, over the top.
     CLAUDIUS (13-2860) (62-47-2,199) of I, CLAUDIUS challenged RAORK ROKIOS (70-
1526) (28-15-0,198) of ORKOGRE CASTLE.  Down 1.  CLAUDIUS devastated RAORK ROKIOS in
a popular 1 minute bloody uneven Challenge brawl.  You know how they say experience
talks?  It also, like, snarls and taunts.
     NATAS (11-6531) (28-15-0,204) of DO IT AGAIN challenged KOOKABURRA (33-4151)
(98-132-4,209) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.  Up 5.  NATAS defeated KOOKABURRA in an
exciting 1 minute Challenge fight.  Good.  That cookie is SOOO stale by now, you
can't imagine.
     BARBARIAN KNIGHT (56-2006) (37-31-2,194) of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS challenged SISTER
X (12-6340) (34-42-0,206) of CULTS-R-US.  up 12.  BARBARIAN KNIGHT was overpowered by
SISTER X in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge duel.  Sister used her wiles, I bet.

The tv challenges, for which we congratulate Defiance and Nebuchadnezzar whose name
is too hard to spell:
     DEFIANCE (32-4619) (26-4-1,185) of ANGELS OF PAIN TV challenged AIN GOBLINBANE
(70-678) (45-23-1,196) of ECCENTRIC DWARVES.  Up 11.  DEFIANCE viciously subdued AIN
GOBLINBANE in a 4 minute Challenge battle.  I dunno, all I can do is look at these
guys and say, "wow."

For the title, also tv challenge:
     NEBUCHADNEZZAR (22-5821) (87-54-0,391) of BLADES OF WONDER TV challenged DREAM
WARRIOR (48-1040) (54-18-1,300) of NIGHT'S GUARDIANS.  Down 91.  NEBUCHADNEZZAR
devastated DREAM WARRIOR in a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.  Which makes Neb our
Lord Marshall again, and we all congratulate him and say, "too bad, Dream Warrior,
but this is what happens if you don't challenge or avoid," or something like that.
But it was a good thing you did writing the column.

And that's it, and I want to get out of here before it actually starts snowing, so...
                   Until next time,
                                       Debby T.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Millhouse -- Thank you for not saying anything rude.  I wasn't humbled, but don't
appreciate bad manners regardless -- Sekhat

Debby Tonte -- I don't drink. -- Sekhat

     You probably should.

Maggie -- The Arenamaster thinks you're a man.  Why is that? -- Jeo the Songsmith

     Because she is.

Artemidorus -- Thank the gods it's someone who won't be likely to speak, so I don't
have to go on and on. -- Tall Tree

     Good.

Aldaldon -- Right, what he said. -- Stonetooth

Ale'chai Tallsky -- Yep.  An arena of non-talkers.  Fortunately, Jorja has agreed we
don't need to get chatty unless there's a chance we might be answered. -- Falling
Rock
P.S.  I'd have argued it the other way, but then we'd have to talk more for even
less.  Phooey.

Sam -- Bah. -- Black Wolf

Wonder Bubble -- Weird looking. -- Cedar
P.S.  You were supposed to fight and defeat Falling Rock, weren't you?
