                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Hello Everyone,

     Here I am again!  Jeanne d'Arc, you don't need to keep getting matched against
Gazelle.  You could challenge me.  Hmm... but you'd probably lose... never mind.
Superior Forces and Cort Nightjewel--come on, give it a try.  I fight with a low kill
desire so you have little to lose.  So what the hell, go for it!
     This past time, I was matched against D. Moe Gorgon.  He started the fight by
whacking me in the head with an edged weapon.  Blood was running into my eyes and I
didn't think I could go on.  Mostly unable to see, I waved my sword around
frantically.  It seems the sun was at the exact right angle to keep blinding D. Moe
with a strobe-effect as it reflected off my sword.  Hypnotized, he just stood there
while I slashed him to doll rags and then poked him like a pincushion.  Screaming a
primal scream, I did the sewing-machine thing, pokey-pokey-pokey, for twenty or
thirty times.  Well, maybe not that much, but he had a lot of holes in him when I saw
him in the infirmary.  Sorry about that, Moe.
     That's all I've got to say for now.

With best wishes to you all (especially those in challenge range of me),
Lord-Marshall Nightcap

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     On the eve of the tourney, we have another round of fights here in Free Blades.
Only eighteen, of 'em, though, which is just depressing.  Andorak had more, and they
were almost dead for a while.  Guess it must be our turn to be almost dead, but I
don't like it.
     You'll note in the personals that Caesar has made his position clear.  That's
good, clear is good.  I always figured that any arena gets the kind of atmosphere
it's prepared to put up with and encourage, so now it's over to the rest of you:  How
do you feel about that?  It doesn't put a bug in my drink either way, I get paid to
write this stuff whichever.  Although if Caesar gets the "alone in the arena" he's
talking about, the Commission will shut it down.  Then I get an extra day at the
beach.

The notes I've got here say:
     Marlenus got the biggest point increase for defeating a standby:  thirty-four
points.
     Looks like The Quickling lost the most at eighteen.
     Angels of Pain was Most Avoided by Do It Again.  Wait a minute, aren't these two
teams under the same management?  How could they avoid each other?  WHY would they
avoid each other?
     The Quickling got the most challenges.
     Of our eighteen fights, three involved standbys.  Could be worse, I guess.  And
eight were challenges, but none of them were tv challenges.

     QUINTUS (17-6913) (20-16-3,59) of FIELDS OF ELYSIUM fought LUCIFREYJA (103-40)
(19-21-1,90) of the College of Mimes.  QUINTUS beat LUCIFREYJA in a crowd pleasing 1
minute bloody fight.
     MARLENUS (31-6184) (14-4-1,51) of CAESAR'S POOL HALL fought ROSELLA (103-39)
(26-25-0,100) of the College of Mimes.  MARLENUS savagely defeated ROSELLA in an
exciting 2 minute brutal match.
     FEEL THE BUZZ (35-2490) (16-4-0,68) of ON THE ROCKS fought MADNESS (32-4980)
(15-4-1,80) of ANGELS OF PAIN.  FEEL THE BUZZ was devastated by MADNESS in a popular
1 minute mismatched brawl.  Does this mean Madness wasn't drinking?  Or he was
drinking, and it made him madder?
     MARCELLUS (32-5133) (22-4-0,112) of ROMAN HEROES fought SEKHAT (7-2251) (33-54-
2,125) of CASTAWAYS.  MARCELLUS devastated SEKHAT in an exciting 1 minute uneven
duel.
     KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (109-152-4,175) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES fought FALLING ROCK
(29-4286) (39-59-0,142) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  KOOKABURRA handily defeated FALLING ROCK
in a popular 1 minute uneven fight.  Some people shouldn't even LOOK at cookies.

     GERMANICUS (17-6999) (27-9-1,154) of GLADIATORS fought DOOMSDAY DEVICE (65-4854)
(26-27-0,129) of REIGNING DOOM.  GERMANICUS demolished DOOMSDAY DEVICE in a 2 minute
bloody one-sided brawl.
     SMUG BUG (55-2900) (93-165-0,207) of RHYME TYME fought GAZELLE (56-3701) (71-87-
0,189) of REDHORSE.  SMUG BUG overcame GAZELLE in an exciting 5 minute contest.  At
least Gazelle didn't fight Jeanne d'Arc this time.
     DREAD (32-4666) (29-17-0,187) of ANGELS OF PAIN fought DREHVIN (103-34) (75-45-
7,200) of the College of Mimes.  DREAD overpowered DREHVIN in a crowd pleasing 1
minute one-sided match.  Do you suppose standbys feel dread?
     D. MOE GORGON (32-2395) (77-37-2,206) of DEVIL ADVOCATES fought CORNELIUS (31-
3485) (43-9-1,187) of CAESAR'S POOL HALL.  D. MOE GORGON beat CORNELIUS in a popular
1 minute melee.
     SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) (127-179-3,249) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY fought CORT
NIGHTJEWEL (78-196) (124-145-0,229) of THE DRAGON FIST.  SUPERIOR FORCES was
vanquished by CORT NIGHTJEWEL in a 1 minute one-sided duel.  A contest between two
fossils.  Who cares?

The challenges:
     ANTONIUS (19-5063) (32-13-0,165) of IDES OF MARCH challenged STONETOOTH (29-
4560) (34-72-0,147) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 18.  ANTONIUS won victory over
STONETOOTH in a popular 1 minute Challenge duel.
     LUCRETIUS (32-4687) (38-14-3,165) of ROMAN HEROES challenged JEO THE SONGSMITH
(1-3260) (46-99-0,144) of BLUE EYRIE.  Down 21.  LUCRETIUS outlasted JEO THE
SONGSMITH in an action packed 8 minute Challenge melee.
     ARTEMIDORUS (17-6864) (55-15-1,175) of FIELDS OF ELYSIUM challenged TALL TREE
(29-4380) (27-85-0,148) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 27.  ARTEMIDORUS overpowered TALL
TREE in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge struggle.
     BIONIC BUFFALO (11-6570) (45-45-0,163) of DO IT AGAIN challenged CEDAR (29-4319)
(33-49-2,162) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Down 1.  BIONIC BUFFALO devastated CEDAR in a 1
minute uneven Challenge brawl.  I guess bionic buffaloes are hard to hunt.
     GIMME SOME SUGAR (19-4936) (28-20-0,189) of ARMY OF DARKNESS challenged THE
QUICKLING (70-1669) (94-215-3,204) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  Up 15.  GIMME SOME SUGAR
devastated THE QUICKLING in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Anything that
knocks some of these old fossils around is fine with me.
     NATAS (11-6531) (45-29-0,196) of DO IT AGAIN challenged JOHN TYLER (5-4420) (36-
9-0,205) of I'M HISTORY.  Up 11.  NATAS savagely defeated JOHN TYLER in an action
packed 5 minute bloody Challenge fight.  Experience counting, I guess?
     DEFIANCE (32-4619) (46-15-1,195) of ANGELS OF PAIN challenged BLACK WOLF (29-
4194) (54-53-2,202) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 7.  DEFIANCE won victory over BLACK WOLF
in an action packed 2 minute Challenge battle.  There was a lot of snapping and
snarling during that fight; I hope Black Wolf had his rabies shot first!

For the title:
     JEANNE D'ARC (70-68) (37-28-0,226) of GORGEOUS GOBLINS challenged NIGHTCAP (74-
2745) (165-125-0,302) of DARKLINGS.  Up lots.  About 76.  JEANNE D'ARC was devastated
by NIGHTCAP in a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.  Sorry, Nightcap, it just isn't that
easy to get away from the top.

                                       Debby T.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Gazelle -- Do you get a strange feeling of dij` vu? -- Jeanne d'Arc

All -- Interesting to see that all challenges were down-challenges last turn.  It
seems to have worked for everyone but the Dark One, too. -- Bartender

Gazelle -- A twist and shout performance. -- Jeanne d'Arc

Gazelle -- Do you get a strange feeling of dij` vu? -- Jeanne d'Arc

Debby T. -- Rome cares little for your useless Spymaster commentary.  You are mere
rabble in our victorious eyes!  Come out of your little Moria disneyworld and face
us!  Or is the play in the valley too rough?  We rule here!  We are the masters!  You
are nothing!  Ever forward with the Roman banner!  If the arena fodder cannot handle
it, they should begin using their challenges and avoids, or abandon whatever fragile
hope they still have.  Rome will be here in the long run, will they?  Let them fear
us and flee before our legions.  We care not.  We also don't care if we are someday
alone here.  We need no one, no company.  We can survive alone!  It is all about
winning, and in the long term, no one will remember how the wins were achieved, but
rather only the astronomical victory machine that is the end result.  And let no one
tempt the fury of Rome, as they will be dealt with accordingly.  Remember when you
win and we will always win, it is all about getting there, exploiting the system for
your own selfish personal gains and milking it dry of every last drop for your own
disproportionate bowl of fruity pebbles.  No one cares about the unwashed masses, nor
will they ever.  Let it be known to all that Caesar will spare no prisoners.  We were
here from the ancient days, experienced the major nitwits of the game come and go,
and persevered!  Many are now cast into the dustbin of Alastari history, long
forgotten, but Rome lives on.  We never asked for quarter, and no quarter will be
given! -- It is the Will of Caesar!  Caesar has Spoken!

Artemidorus, Antonius, and Cornelius -- We can't think of anything new to say to you.
Same old same old. -- Tall Tree, Stonetooth, and Cedar

John Tyler -- I was never much good at history, and besides, I can't remember where
Tippecanoe comes into it.  Well, actually, I suppose everything comes OUT of
Tippecanoe.  Don't do it at this time of year, or you'll all get hypothermia. --
Black Wolf

Doomsday Device -- Huh, I didn't expect it to be so easy to fall on someone of your
height. -- Falling Rock

Lucretius -- Actually, the spectators all agreed that I should have won.  I think the
Arenamaster was biased. -- Jeo the Songsmith

Germanicus -- Whoa!  You cost me a recognition point.  Didn't gain any for yourself
though. -- Sekhat

D. Moe Gorgon -- That fight was a toss-up, as far as I was concerned.  And yet, I'm
the one who has to write a column.  *sigh* -- Nightcap

Jeanne d'Arc -- That was well fought, my lady.  And yet... rather redundant, since we
fought the previous turn as well. -- Gazelle
