                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Going Back In Time...

     Let's go way back to 1988.  I was a sophomore at Colgate University in Hamilton,
NY, and had recently returned from my Thanksgiving vacation.  I'd brought a couple of
west coast friends home with me for the holiday and we played a bit of football and
some basketball for the heck of it.  Unfortunately I broke my ankle while rebounding
and was stuck in my dorm room except when I ventured out to go to class or for some
food.
     That year at Colgate the snow came early, and the paths were covered with ice
regularly, making it especially difficult to hobble around with crutches and a big
plastic boot on my foot.  It was a very, very depressing time.  I'd taken to
hoovering a large pizza nightly and my only real enjoyment was the occasional
roleplaying or board game with my friends.
     One evening my friend Steve came over for some Dungeons and Dragons and he
brought with him the rules to a cool game he had heard about.  Steve had some friends
at Johns Hopkins who were playing this game called Duelmasters and he said they were
all pretty obsessed with it.  We all took turns reading the rules and by the end of
the evening we decided that the five of us would start a team with each one of us
managing one warrior.  Our dorm room that year was called HELL.  It's too long a
story to go into...
     So we named the team Hell Force and we all picked names for our guys.  There was
Shift, the Aimed Blow, Dartwieen, the Basher, a PL called Something the Gray and
another Aimer who I can't remember the name to.  I was fascinated by the write-up of
the Wall of Steel Style in the rules, so I named my guy Natas the Quick (because, of
course, he had a 3 speed) and made him a Wall of Steel.
     We sent in our rollup and a little while later we got back our overviews and we
filled out our first strategy sheets.  A couple of weeks later we got back our first
turn and we went 2-3-1.  My carefully thought out WOS strategy was thwarted and I
lost.  But Natas learned a couple of skills and I was hooked.  We had another couple
of turns, but then for some reason we had a turn get lost in the mail, my friends
were losing interest and I decided that I wanted to run my own team.  So I sent away
for my own rollup sheet and made the Devil Advocates team which was placed in Arvat.
Thus began the addiction!
     However a few years back I got a bug to re-use some of my old warrior names in
an effort to get some of those names to ADM.  The first name I picked was Natas.  Of
course I dropped the Quick part.  And this time he was a lunger and not a wall of
steel.  But I liked the warrior and ran him out.
     And now he's part of an obsession with a game that's lasted over 20 years...
All hail Natas!

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     So, no tanning weather, but it's good to ski.  Snow and snow and more snow.
     Today's fights.  Well, we're doing okay, but not as good as Andorak, and that's
just, well, I can't tell you what it just is, because of this being a family
newsletter.  We had twenty-three fights to their twenty-two, but they only had one
standby, and we had seven.  Bummer.  Seven challenges, none of them TV that I can
see.  The longest fight was fourteen minutes, which is respectable, I mean, two
digits.  That's better than one, right?
     Jadra got the most points for an increase, thirty-three.  Quintus lost the most
at twenty-eight.  These two did not fight each other.
     Gorgeous Goblins were avoided by Angels of Pain, and if I were the Goblins, I'd 
be glad of that.  Who needs pain?
     The Quickling got the most challenges but was not elected president.

     SNOTMAN (61-3157) (11-0-0,33) of I HATE THEM TOO fought MAKADOS (29-4704) (19-6-
0,63) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  SNOTMAN viciously subdued MAKADOS in a popular 2 minute
gruesome match.  Vicious snot?  Euwh.
     SUPERCHICK (96-2999) (6-14-3,47) of KEYS 2 THE KINGDOM fought QUINTUS (17-6913)
(22-16-3,83) of FIELDS OF ELYSIUM.  SUPERCHICK demolished QUINTUS in a 1 minute one-
sided fight.  This is where Quintus "dropped like a basher in the top ten."  It would
depend on the basher, wouldn't it?
     DARKNESS ABOVE (65-4856) (25-16-0,131) of REIGNING DOOM fought MAREI (103-37)
(38-32-2,150) of the College of Mimes.  DARKNESS ABOVE slimly lost to MAREI in a
crowd pleasing 4 minute gory fray.  Ooooh, lost to a standby!  Bad boy, Darkness.
     KRYSTAL MEYERS (43-4635) (24-5-0,134) of POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE fought HELYSE
(103-36) (45-35-5,165) of the College of Mimes.  KRYSTAL MEYERS was viciously subdued
by HELYSE in a popular 1 minute gruesome match.  Wow, another standby win!  You need
to get to work on your guys, Zalgor, they should do better.
     HAWK NELSON (43-4636) (25-3-0,111) of POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE fought ROSELLA (103-
39) (26-25-0,100) of the College of Mimes.  HAWK NELSON unbelievably bested ROSELLA
in a popular 8 minute gory contest.  This is better.
     DOOMSDAY DEVICE (65-4854) (27-28-0,141) of REIGNING DOOM fought XHUGHA KARGARIT
(103-38) (32-28-1,130) of the College of Mimes.  DOOMSDAY DEVICE was savagely
defeated by XHUGHA KARGARIT in a popular 4 minute match.  And this puts the standbys
at 3-1 against Zalgor's guys.  Not so good.

     KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (110-153-4,180) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES fought BIONIC BUFFALO
(11-6570) (47-45-0,179) of DO IT AGAIN.  KOOKABURRA overpowered BIONIC BUFFALO in a 1
minute one-sided match.  Well, you know how it is, when a cookie's been lying around
on the shelf for ten years, it's going to be TOUGH.
     ALE'CHAI TALLSKY (35-4026) (31-6-0,180) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought MARCELLUS (32-
5133) (24-4-0,151) of ROMAN HEROES.  ALE'CHAI TALLSKY devastated MARCELLUS in a 1
minute one-sided brawl.  I saw a tall sky once, it had storm clouds in it, and
lightning and stuff.
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (166-126-0,195) of DARKLINGS fought ANTONIUS (19-5063) (34-
13-0,173) of IDES OF MARCH.  NIGHTCAP vanquished ANTONIUS in a crowd pleasing 1
minute one-sided fray.  Experience counts.
     JADRA (61-3379) (31-19-1,191) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought DREHVIN (103-34) (75-45-
7,200) of the College of Mimes.  JADRA handily defeated DREHVIN in a popular 2 minute
bloody uneven fight.  Oh, cheese, Jadra got the high point gain for beating a
standby.  Well, at least it was a good win.
     GAZELLE (56-3701) (71-89-0,188) of REDHORSE fought JOHN TYLER (5-4420) (37-10-
0,201) of I'M HISTORY.  GAZELLE was narrowly defeated by JOHN TYLER in a popular 14
minute bloody brawl.  This was the longest fight.  I heard Gazelle say he never did
like studying history.

     DRIZZT (40-4146) (34-42-0,207) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought ROBIN OF SHEW-WOOD
(103-33) (1-0-1,220) of the College of Mimes.  DRIZZT demolished ROBIN OF SHEW-WOOD
in a 2 minute mismatched competition.  And some people would call that philanthropy,
too.  But Robin's okay, if you have stuff on a very high shelf you want to get down.
     NYZEIL OGLATA (17-6753) (33-25-1,185) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought ROBIN OF SHEW-
WOOD (103-33) (1-0-1,220) of the College of Mimes.  NYZEIL OGLATA overpowered ROBIN
OF SHEW-WOOD in a popular 2 minute one-sided melee.  Of course, Robin's not lucky in
the arena lots of times.  He's mostly just an old soft shew.
     DREAD (32-4666) (30-18-0,190) of ANGELS OF PAIN fought SHEN (65-4973) (26-14-
0,159) of BATTLE SCHOOL.  DREAD overpowered SHEN in a popular 1 minute gory uneven
duel.  This is, like, no surprise, considering.
     JEANNE D'ARC (70-68) (38-29-0,218) of GORGEOUS GOBLINS fought ALDALDON (56-3913)
(32-23-1,195) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  JEANNE D'ARC vanquished ALDALDON in a 1 minute
uneven duel.  Jeanne was just too gorgeous for Aldaldon, he couldn't keep his mind on
the job.  Some days are like that.
     D. MOE GORGON (32-2395) (79-37-2,253) of DEVIL ADVOCATES fought CORNELIUS (31-
3485) (44-10-1,204) of CAESAR'S POOL HALL.  D. MOE GORGON overcame CORNELIUS in an
action packed 3 minute gruesome fight.  And why not?  Besides, Moe is kind of cute.

The challenges:
     FEEL THE BUZZ (35-2490) (16-6-0,62) of ON THE ROCKS challenged MARLENUS (31-
6184) (16-4-1,96) of CAESAR'S POOL HALL.  Up 34.  FEEL THE BUZZ was devastated by
MARLENUS in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge match.  Good try, Buzz.  I like it when
the new guys have, you know, courage.
     LUCRETIUS (32-4687) (40-14-3,171) of ROMAN HEROES challenged JEO THE SONGSMITH
(1-3260) (46-101-0,150) of BLUE EYRIE.  Down 21.  LUCRETIUS devastated JEO THE
SONGSMITH in a 2 minute gory uneven Challenge brawl.  Some days, experience does NOT
count.
     GERMANICUS (17-6999) (29-9-2,173) of GLADIATORS challenged SEKHAT (7-2251) (33-
56-2,120) of CASTAWAYS.  Down 53.  GERMANICUS was defeated by SEKHAT in an exciting 1
minute Challenge fight.  A mean cat, Sekhat.
     ARTEMIDORUS (17-6864) (56-16-1,187) of FIELDS OF ELYSIUM challenged SUPERIOR
FORCES (33-4543) (128-180-3,198) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY.  Up 11.  ARTEMIDORUS was
vanquished by SUPERIOR FORCES in a 1 minute Challenge brawl.  Hey, did you think the
name was a joke?
     GIMME SOME SUGAR (19-4936) (29-21-0,193) of ARMY OF DARKNESS challenged THE
QUICKLING (70-1669) (94-217-3,187) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  Down 6.  GIMME SOME SUGAR
subdued THE QUICKLING in a 2 minute Challenge fight.  This is Quickling the Most
Challenged, but not always Quickling the Most Quickest.
     DEFIANCE (32-4619) (48-15-1,213) of ANGELS OF PAIN challenged SMUG BUG (55-2900)
(94-166-0,203) of RHYME TYME.  Down 10.  DEFIANCE devastated SMUG BUG in an action
packed 1 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  Right!  Smash the bug!

For the title:  NATAS (11-6531) (47-29-0,254) of DO IT AGAIN challenged CORT
NIGHTJEWEL (78-196) (126-145-0,257) of THE DRAGON FIST.  Up 3.  NATAS was bested by
CORT NIGHTJEWEL in a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.  Bummer, Natas, but you might
want to write a column anyway.  I don't really expect one from Cort.
