                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

     Still?  There must be some mistake, you know.  The She-Puppy's warriors just
don't...
     Oh!  Hello.  Nightcap here.  Actually my name is Fairwind ten Solat.  Yes,
"Fairwind" is odd for a given name.  Someone said it must mean I had hippie parents.
No, not at all.  They dressed in odd, flowing clothes, drank strange teas, and often
gave flowers to strangers on the street, but their hips were of normal size.
Unfortunately they stuck me with the nickname "Windy."  And some very unkind
schoolmates called me "Fairy."  I thought that was unfortunate, until I joined the
Darklings and people started calling me "Nighty."
     John Tyler, you lasted into the third minute.  Personally I think they should
have awarded you the win for that.
     There are five Grand Challenger Champions who can reach me.  I'm hoping it will
be Superior Forces.  I don't do well against that style, I think.
     That's all for now.  I hope you enjoyed the results of today's fights, and for
those who didn't, maybe you'll do better in two weeks.

With best wishes,
Nightcap

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Wow, we had RAIN!  And not just a little rain, either, it was like the gods
turned on a faucet.  It made me want a boat or something, you know?
     But now we have fights.  And a guy with a bag over his head taking notes, which
makes you wonder--the bag--how he can SEE to take the notes, doesn't it?
     Biggest point movements:  Redthorn up thirty-six, Krystal Meyers down twenty-
six, same fight.
     Most avoided, Darklings.  Most avoiding of Darklings, Devil Advocates.
     Most challenged, I think Jeo the Songsmith, but what with that bag over his
head, not Jeo's, the Unknown (Ha!) Spymaster's, it's hard to be sure.
     Twenty-two fights, two standbys, seven challenges.

     KING COREY (43-4620) (24-15-1,88) of LUROCIAN ROYALTY fought WHITEBRAID (15-
2110) (34-62-1,87) of GREENWARDENS.  KING COREY was viciously subdued by WHITEBRAID
in a popular 1 minute brutal contest.  Whoa!  Whitebraid won a fight!  This is news!
     BRAVO (96-3034) (10-10-3,66) of PHONETIX fought LUCIFREYJA (103-40) (19-21-1,90)
of the College of Mimes.  BRAVO savagely defeated LUCIFREYJA in an action packed 4
minute gruesome bout.  Well, Luci's used to that.
     FLESH RIPPER (74-3375) (21-12-1,124) of LUROCIANS XI fought SLEEPWALKER (74-
2843) (52-108-1,140) of DARKLINGS.  FLESH RIPPER devastated SLEEPWALKER in a popular
1 minute gruesome one-sided contest.  Lot of ripping out there.
     KRYSTAL MEYERS (43-4635) (31-14-0,164) of POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE fought REDTHORN
(15-4943) (29-28-0,131) of GREENWARDENS.  KRYSTAL MEYERS was overpowered by REDTHORN
in a 1 minute mismatched fight.  This was the big point movement fight, of course.
     CONTROVERSY (64-3914) (41-47-1,171) of UNDER DURESS fought MOSSROCK (15-4871)
(39-39-2,127) of GREENWARDENS.  CONTROVERSY demolished MOSSROCK in a 1 minute one-
sided bout.  Some people just can't take an argument.

     JOHN TYLER (5-4420) (45-14-0,208) of I'M HISTORY fought SAVORY (32-4143) (34-27-
1,165) of DEAD WE SUCK.  JOHN TYLER defeated SAVORY in a 2 minute bout.  So?  They're
both dead anyway.
     DANISH (74-2451) (77-34-0,187) of THE ALPHABET fought WOODEN ARROW (15-4619)
(32-31-0,163) of GREENWARDENS.  DANISH devastated WOODEN ARROW in a 1 minute
mismatched brawl.  I've been wondering, is this Danish a pastry?  That would be good.
     THE QUICKLING (70-1669) (103-247-3,182) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought SCAPA (35-
4198) (24-8-1,180) of ON THE ROCKS.  THE QUICKLING was viciously subdued by SCAPA in
an action packed 2 minute brutal duel.  It's tough being a fossil when a young
hotshot comes along.
     ARGUMENT (64-3915) (38-50-0,201) of UNDER DURESS fought SANDMAN (74-2896) (55-
89-3,193) of DARKLINGS.  ARGUMENT overpowered SANDMAN in a 2 minute one-sided duel.
And some people can't take any kind of controversy, either.
     GOLEM (35-1485) (86-56-1,210) of THE PHILANTHROPISTS fought S. MARY ROSE (78-
2313) (60-72-1,172) of HABIT.  GOLEM devastated S. MARY ROSE in a crowd pleasing 2
minute mismatched bout.  Is this what philanthropy is about?

     KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (130-172-5,201) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES fought REM (74-2853)
(89-67-0,203) of DARKLINGS.  KOOKABURRA handily defeated REM in an exciting 1 minute
one-sided contest.  That's the thing about cookies in bed, you think you've got it
covered, but you still get crumbs.
     SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) (160-187-3,288) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY fought SMUG
BUG (55-2900) (110-189-0,186) of RHYME TYME.  SUPERIOR FORCES demolished SMUG BUG in
a 1 minute mismatched match.  Well, I guess this is good.  Two fossils bashing each
other around.
     GAZELLE (56-3701) (97-102-0,227) of REDHORSE fought STUMP (15-4882) (30-57-
0,181) of GREENWARDENS.  GAZELLE overpowered STUMP in a popular 5 minute gory uneven
match.  Just... jumped right over him.
     MARTIN BLANK (82-28434) (31-7-0,215) of BLOOD TITANS fought GIMME SOME SUGAR
(19-4936) (50-38-0,218) of ARMY OF DARKNESS.  MARTIN BLANK vanquished GIMME SOME
SUGAR in an action packed 3 minute uneven fight.  Well, you know, sugar... it lets
you down.
     UNFORGETTABLE (78-2306) (19-2-3,230) of THE WILLBURYS 78 fought HATHU (103-32)
(5-1-0,250) of the College of Mimes.  UNFORGETTABLE lost to HATHU in an action packed
1 minute duel.  The other standby, and a winner.  This makes the standbys happy.

The challenges:
     OBAN (35-4213) (16-6-1,87) of ON THE ROCKS challenged JEO THE SONGSMITH (1-3260)
(57-129-0,75) of BLUE EYRIE.  Down 12.  OBAN was outwaited by JEO THE SONGSMITH in a
slow 13 minute Challenge competition.  I suppose we have to have long fights now and
then, I used the time to go out for a sandwich.
     REPUGNANT (97-3677) (15-8-4,104) of SONS OF SATAN challenged TREEFROG (15-4177)
(28-32-0,114) of GREENWARDENS.  Up 10.  REPUGNANT vanquished TREEFROG in an exciting
1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Poor Frog, always getting smashed.
     LORD FIREFLASH (33-2966) (49-50-0,180) of LUROCIANS II challenged MACHINE (56-
3795) (36-33-0,168) of DIRTIE.  Down 12.  LORD FIREFLASH demolished MACHINE in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge competition.  Well, you know, machines.  They break down
for any reason at all.
     GARY M. REAPER (32-2502) (66-36-1,189) of DEVIL ADVOCATES challenged SERGE (32-
3549) (44-41-0,189) of ASSORTED.  Straight across.  GARY M. REAPER bested SERGE in a
popular 1 minute Challenge fight.  Fast but, you know, pretty good, for a fight.
     LADY EMILY (33-6626) (40-33-1,190) of LUROCIANS II challenged SEKHAT (7-2251)
(46-82-2,190) of CASTAWAYS.  Straight across.  LADY EMILY demolished SEKHAT in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  It's the cat hair.  Some ladies
really can't stand the cat hair.
     RED BARON (33-1092) (58-55-3,243) of LUROCIANS II challenged FEEL THE BUZZ (35-
2490) (27-15-1,211) of ON THE ROCKS.  Down 32.  RED BARON vanquished FEEL THE BUZZ in
a 1 minute uneven Challenge battle.  This was, like, totally not a surprise.

For the title:
     BILBO BAGGINNI (9-5508) (35-15-0,234) of MIDDLE ITALY challenged NIGHTCAP (74-
2745) (200-131-0,317) of DARKLINGS.  Up 83 or something like that.  BILBO BAGGINNI
was devastated by NIGHTCAP in a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.  You see, this is
what happens when you write columns.  You keep titles.  Well, not always, but often.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Feel the Buzz -- Oh, that's depressing.  I don't feel any buzz.  I think my "buzz"
nerves got old and tired.  Go away. -- Sandman

John Tyler -- Hmm.  Here on the Isle, you should try to move more quickly. --
Nightcap

Gary M. Reaper -- Now THAT was a great surprise!  A fighter of your style, with a
winning record, attacks me... and I win?  Not supposed to happen.  But I'll take it.
-- Gazelle

S. Mary Rose -- I think you need to attack more. -- Rem

Controversy -- Pssh!  My team has an unexpected winning streak, but do I benefit from
it?  Nooo, of course not.  Must be doing something wrong... a black cat did cross my
path.  He's one of my teammates, one of those Castaways -- Sleepwalker

Savory -- Healing magics, eh?  Not a potion?  What did they do exactly, if you can
remember? -- Sekhat

Whitebraid -- Although you are a groundgrubber and therefore I do not like you, you
fought well. -- Jeo the Songsmith

Treefrog -- That is very suspicious. -- Jeo the Songsmith

So.  Personals.  Ever think how unfair it is that we have to fight for our very
lives, and then limp over to a table and write nice about it?  Jorja wants personals,
she can write 'em, is what *I* say. -- Whitebraid the Disgruntled

Jeo the Songsmith -- Oh... I thought they said you were "eerie," and I'm against that
kind of thing.  It was my job back in Malcorn, see, looking for eerie stuff in the
woods and STOMPING it. -- Whitebraid

Krystal Meyers -- *I* wouldn't have minded being surprised.  Like, with a WIN. --
Redthorn, also disgruntled

Machine -- Debby missed the boat on OUR fight.  Not woodchips this time, this time
we've got broken gear-teeth, snapped belts, and overheated engines.  Works for me. --
Stump

The Quickling -- Well... at least it was quick. -- a battered Treefrog

Serge -- What do you say we get together and light a fire in the arena?  We could
break up some of the benches for wood, squeeze some fat bookies for grease to get it
going, and have a party. -- Wooden Arrow

Repugnant -- Yep, that about covers it:  caught by a rock in a hard place.  I smote
you hip and thigh. -- Mossrock

Sekhat -- I didn't think you were a Fratsfan, they don't usually have tails, by what
I hear.  But I thought you might have been one of those Andorian cat-people. --
Wooden Arrow
