                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

     This time, I was matched against Black Wolf.  A Cardow Hunter.  You know they
never challenge.  It's a philosophical thing, I've heard--something about remaining
receptive to the winds of fate.  I never challenge either, but that has more to do
with laziness.  I hit Wolf in the leg and dropped him.  And then hit him while he was
down, ending the fight.  I know that some Alastarians consider it poor sportsmanship
to attack an opponent while he is down.  But in Lirith Kai, this is considered a good
strategy.  Especially if one's opponent is culturally conditioned not to expect it.
     And so, here I still am.  I'm looking forward to a challenge from Defiance,
Superior Forces, or Natas, any of whom could beat me (and who would then be
responsible for writing a column).  Come on, bring it!  Do I have to say nasty, rude
things about your mothers?  True things, mind you!
     *blushing*  Well not really, as far as I know.  But I don't know your mothers,
so those things I didn't say COULD be true!  Ha!  You'd better challenge me then, for
the honor of your mothers.  Of whom I would never speak ill, naturally.

     I have so little to say.  Challenge me!  Please!

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Only seventeen fights!  That's fewer than Andorak had.  Listen, you guys, it's
fine for Andorak to do better, but WE shouldn't do worse.  Get out there on the sands
and do something, okay?  Only seventeen fights....  At least there was only one
standby.
     Madness had the biggest point gain at 37, after defeating Quintus, who had the
biggest drop, at 31.  Okay for them, I guess.
     Blue Eyrie was most avoided by Roman Heroes.  Weird, but I guess it takes all
kinds.
     Six people were challenged, and Jeo the Songsmith got the most challenges.

     MADNESS (32-4980) (14-4-1,43) of ANGELS OF PAIN fought QUINTUS (17-6913) (20-15-
3,90) of FIELDS OF ELYSIUM.  MADNESS devastated QUINTUS in a 1 minute one-sided
fight.  This is the "most moving" fight, and you can, like, see why, right?
     FEEL THE BUZZ (35-2490) (15-4-0,49) of ON THE ROCKS fought MARLENUS (31-6184)
(14-3-1,58) of CAESAR'S POOL HALL.  FEEL THE BUZZ overcame MARLENUS in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute bloody bout.  Feel is new here and looking good, and Marlenus,
well, it wasn't a one-sided fight, so he must be looking good, too.
     MARCELLUS (32-5133) (21-4-0,100) of ROMAN HEROES fought ROSELLA (103-39) (26-25-
0,100) of the College of Mimes.  MARCELLUS vanquished ROSELLA in an action packed 1
minute mismatched bout.  That's our standby for the day.
     DOOMSDAY DEVICE (65-4854) (26-26-0,146) of REIGNING DOOM fought FALLING ROCK
(29-4286) (38-59-0,122) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  DOOMSDAY DEVICE was savagely defeated by
FALLING ROCK in a 1 minute conflict.  Some rocks fall really hard.
     BIONIC BUFFALO (11-6570) (45-44-0,168) of DO IT AGAIN fought KOOKABURRA (33-
4151) (108-152-4,168) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.  BIONIC BUFFALO was subdued by
KOOKABURRA in a crowd pleasing 1 minute match.  I do sooo want to see Kookaburra go
to Primus.

     GIMME SOME SUGAR (19-4936) (28-19-0,199) of ARMY OF DARKNESS fought SMUG BUG
(55-2900) (92-165-0,189) of RHYME TYME.  GIMME SOME SUGAR was savagely defeated by
SMUG BUG in a 2 minute competition.  And Smug Bug, too.  Over two hundred regular
arena fights, you'd think the Bug would HAVE to go, wouldn't you?  I mean, it's
almost a kind of sandbagging.
     BLACK WOLF (29-4194) (54-52-2,200) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought JOHN TYLER (5-4420)
(35-9-0,195) of I'M HISTORY.  BLACK WOLF was beaten by JOHN TYLER in an exciting 5
minute fight.  I guess Black doesn't "do" history, you think?
     DREAD (32-4666) (29-16-0,194) of ANGELS OF PAIN fought THE QUICKLING (70-1669)
(93-215-3,188) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  DREAD was defeated by THE QUICKLING in an action
packed 1 minute match.  And with more than THREE hundred regular arena fights, why
hasn't Quickling gone?  I mean, this guy's been here on the Isle for more than ten
years.  I don't wish him ill, you know, but I'm tired of trying to think about
something to say about him.
     CORNELIUS (31-3485) (42-9-1,183) of CAESAR'S POOL HALL fought CEDAR (29-4319)
(33-48-2,156) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  CORNELIUS vanquished CEDAR in a 1 minute one-sided
duel.  Did you know that the arena steward said a pool cue is, like, a kind of
quarterstaff?
     JEANNE D'ARC (70-68) (36-28-0,214) of GORGEOUS GOBLINS fought GAZELLE (56-3701)
(71-86-0,195) of REDHORSE.  JEANNE D'ARC vanquished GAZELLE in a popular 4 minute
uneven duel.  Didn't these two just do this?  We need more people here.

The challenges:
     GERMANICUS (17-6999) (26-9-1,149) of GLADIATORS challenged SEKHAT (7-2251) (33-
53-2,124) of CASTAWAYS.  Down 25.  GERMANICUS overpowered SEKHAT in a 1 minute one-
sided Challenge struggle.  Don't you wish sometimes that tourney FE showed in the
records, too?
     ANTONIUS (19-5063) (31-13-0,156) of IDES OF MARCH challenged STONETOOTH (29-
4560) (34-71-0,150) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 6.  ANTONIUS demolished STONETOOTH in a
1 minute mismatched Challenge competition.  Antonius is practicing to be a dentist.
Someone told me that.
     ARTEMIDORUS (17-6864) (54-15-1,173) of FIELDS OF ELYSIUM challenged TALL TREE
(29-4380) (27-84-0,133) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 40.  ARTEMIDORUS viciously subdued
TALL TREE in a popular 2 minute gory Challenge contest.  I don't know why this took
Artie two minutes.
     LUCRETIUS (32-4687) (37-14-3,163) of ROMAN HEROES challenged JEO THE SONGSMITH
(1-3260) (46-98-0,135) of BLUE EYRIE.  Down 28.  LUCRETIUS subdued JEO THE SONGSMITH
in an action packed 4 minute Challenge fight.  This is what happens to Most
Challenged guys.
     NATAS (11-6531) (45-28-0,227) of DO IT AGAIN challenged CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-196)
(123-145-0,214) of THE DRAGON FIST.  Down 13.  NATAS lost to CORT NIGHTJEWEL in an
action packed 1 minute Challenge battle.  And Cort's another guy who should be moving
on.
     DEFIANCE (32-4619) (46-14-1,248) of ANGELS OF PAIN challenged SUPERIOR FORCES
(33-4543) (126-179-3,227) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY.  Down 21.  DEFIANCE was bested by
SUPERIOR FORCES in a crowd pleasing 1 minute Challenge fight.  Like there wasn't an
experience difference?

For the title:
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (164-125-0,273) of DARKLINGS fought D. MOE GORGON (32-2395)
(77-36-2,269) of DEVIL ADVOCATES.  NIGHTCAP viciously subdued D. MOE GORGON in an
action packed 2 minute Title fight.  Well, there it is, Nightcap, the column is still
your job.

See you guys all next year, and I hope it'll start better than this one ended.

                                       Debby T.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Jeanne d'Arc -- that was predictable, wasn't it?  I even predicted that they would
call me a golem.  Are you really a Harkeny? -- Gazelle

Lucretius -- For some reason they gave me platinum chainmail.  I would so much have
preferred steel!  That heavy metal really slowed me down.  Still, my equipment
problems weren't as bad as yours.  It was unfortunate that you were issued a faulty
blade.  I don't like to compliment groundlubbers, but... you fought superbly. -- Jeo
the Songsmith

Germanicus -- You're an able student.  Schedule another lesson, if you feel so
inclined.  I have more to teach you. -- Sekhat

Black Wolf -- I wish you had surrendered BEFORE I had to do that.  Sorry. -- Nightcap

Antonius -- Yeahyeahyeah, win at any cost.  Why aren't you in Darkholm? -- Tall Tree
P.S.  Okay, we throw better parties here, but still.

Cornelius -- I was using my new tactic: withhold skills.  It worked, eh? --
Stonetooth

Nightcap -- Better you to do the column than me. -- Black Wolf

Smug Bug -- We are so tired of fighting you.  I wish you'd go for a bug-flight,
smugly not watching where you were going, and fall off the edge of the world. --
Cedar

Kookaburra -- Yeah, what she said. -- Falling Rock
