                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Hello!

     It's Nightcap again.  Bet you're all getting tired of me.  But I'll tell you one
thing for sure:  This beats Primus!

***

     Nightcap paused, his quill poised over the paper, and gazed abstractedly out the
window.  The guildhouse was an older one, built in the days when the casinos still
flourished in Talahya.  And it had a touch of that style, the big plate glass panes
with the carved walnut frames, stained almost black.  He was looking out over the
sloping ground of the town, to the Lake of Mist.
     There were no reptilian heads sticking up out of the water at the moment, but
those were not an uncommon sight.  The Lake was infested.
     He liked this place, even though the casinos and bars were mostly boarded up,
the beach was rocky, swimming was limited to a magically warded area, and boating was
very much not advised.  Once, the huge population of gladiators had overwhelmed the
much smaller population of local fishermen, sheep herders, and their families.  Now,
the smaller and less brash group of Lord Protectors that remained seemed to have made
more of an effort to be good neighbors and be part of the community.  This very
afternoon, as the Lord Marshall, he was supposed to hammer the first nail as part of
a barn-raising celebration.  There would be free food and all the lemonade he could
drink. It was an honor.  He hoped it would be a very good barn.
     With a smile, he turned his attention to the quill and paper again.

***

     My fight with Kookaburra was a random match.  Kookaburra is a golem with no sex
at all.  It doesn't look like a cookie, really.  It looks like... well, a big-
shouldered sculpture.  Humanoid certainly, the color of clay, and wearing a simple
homespun tunic under its fighting accoutrements.  It was not suited to fight my style
(I am a Parry-Lunger).  I felt rather sorry for it.
     I should wrap this up, as I have an important appointment.  So, chat with you in
two weeks-- or sooner, if you go to barn raising and such.

Nightcap

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Here we are, and we are here.  About... forty-four gladiators, me, the
arenamaster and stewards and orderlies (very disorderlie, those guys), bookies, and
even a few managers.  All here.

     Lord Fireflash had the biggest point increase:  38.
     Wooden Arrow, not having a winning streak today, had the biggest drop:  28.
     Half the old women in the area feel that they can fight better than the active
gladiators here, and they might be right, because they're retired from Primus.
     Lurocians II was most avoided, and On the Rocks most avoided them.
     Gazelle got the most challenges.
     There were twenty-three fights, with two standbys and six challenges.

So, some fights, well, all today's fights....
     BRAVO (96-3034) (11-11-3,85) of PHONETIX fought KING COREY (43-4620) (24-17-
1,70) of LUROCIAN ROYALTY.  BRAVO murdered KING COREY in a 1 minute one-sided melee.
Well!  Murder is a serious charge.  Not something to do lightly, you know.  What was
behind this?  I've HEARD that it was a woman, but nobody actually KNOWS.
     MAKADOS (29-4704) (23-11-0,95) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought JEO THE SONGSMITH (1-
3260) (59-129-0,99) of BLUE EYRIE.  MAKADOS was savagely defeated by JEO THE
SONGSMITH in a popular 9 minute gory duel.  Battered about the head and shoulders by
the wings, I bet.
     FLESH RIPPER (74-3375) (23-12-1,147) of LUROCIANS XI fought MAREI (103-37) (38-
32-2,150) of the College of Mimes.  FLESH RIPPER overpowered MAREI in an exciting 1
minute uneven fight.  You'd better avoid Marei for the next few days, Flesh, because
she's mad enough to do some murdering of her own.
     MOSSROCK (15-4871) (40-40-2,159) of GREENWARDENS fought CONTROVERSY (64-3914)
(42-48-1,172) of UNDER DURESS.  MOSSROCK slimly won victory over CONTROVERSY in a
popular 3 minute brutal contest.  The winning streak continues!
     WOODEN ARROW (15-4619) (32-33-0,168) of GREENWARDENS fought SLEEPWALKER (74-
2843) (52-110-1,132) of DARKLINGS.  WOODEN ARROW was overpowered by SLEEPWALKER in a
1 minute uneven fray.  Silly!  Next time you see an opponent who looks like he's
asleep, DON'T BELIEVE IT, you dummy.
     UNFORGETTABLE (78-2306) (19-4-3,173) of THE WILLBURYS 78 fought THE QUICKLING
(70-1669) (103-249-3,176) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  UNFORGETTABLE overpowered THE
QUICKLING in an exciting 1 minute uneven fight.  Always a pleasure to see.  The days
when Quickling had the approval of the fans are long past.  YEARS past.

     MARTIN BLANK (82-28434) (32-8-0,203) of BLOOD TITANS fought KRYSTAL MEYERS (43-
4635) (32-15-0,171) of POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE.  MARTIN BLANK overpowered KRYSTAL MEYERS
in a crowd pleasing 1 minute mismatched fight.  So much for Krystal's winning streak.
     SANDMAN (74-2896) (56-90-3,191) of DARKLINGS fought HELYSE (103-36) (45-35-
5,165) of the College of Mimes.  SANDMAN was overpowered by HELYSE in an exciting 1
minute one-sided match.  And Helyse is swaggering around like anything, really
ladying it over Marei.
     DANISH (74-2451) (79-34-0,201) of THE ALPHABET fought REM (74-2853) (89-69-
0,189) of DARKLINGS.  DANISH slimly won victory over REM in a popular 3 minute brawl.
Is there a Danish alphabet?  Letters made of blonde wood, maybe?
     ALDALDON (56-3913) (36-28-1,207) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought S. MARY ROSE (78-
2313) (60-74-1,151) of HABIT.  ALDALDON vanquished S. MARY ROSE in a crowd pleasing 1
minute one-sided fray.  The right side, or the left side?
     SMUG BUG (55-2900) (111-190-0,183) of RHYME TYME fought SAVORY (32-4143) (34-29-
1,152) of DEAD WE SUCK.  SMUG BUG vanquished SAVORY in a 1 minute mismatched bout.
That darned Bug!  I wish he'd go to Primus.

     SEKHAT (7-2251) (46-84-2,186) of CASTAWAYS fought REDTHORN (15-4943) (31-28-
0,169) of GREENWARDENS.  SEKHAT handily defeated REDTHORN in a 1 minute one-sided
conflict.  Isn't that just LIKE an Andorian, to use his superior ranking to defeat
humble Free Blades?
     GIMME SOME SUGAR (19-4936) (51-39-0,203) of ARMY OF DARKNESS fought ARGUMENT
(64-3915) (39-51-0,195) of UNDER DURESS.  GIMME SOME SUGAR was demolished by ARGUMENT
in a popular 1 minute mismatched match.  I've seen that happen lots of times.
     LORD FIREFLASH (33-2966) (50-51-0,192) of LUROCIANS II fought MACHINE (56-3795)
(36-35-0,157) of DIRTIE.  LORD FIREFLASH butchered MACHINE in a 1 minute mismatched
conflict.  This is just weird.  How do you butcher a machine?  Take it all apart and
throw away some of the pieces?  That's probably littering.
     SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) (162-187-3,300) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY fought STUMP
(15-4882) (31-58-0,182) of GREENWARDENS.  SUPERIOR FORCES handily defeated STUMP in
an exciting 2 minute brutal one-sided bout.  Hmm, I guess this isn't Stump's day to
work on his winning streak.
     JOHN TYLER (5-4420) (47-14-0,216) of I'M HISTORY fought RED BARON (33-1092) (59-
56-3,194) of LUROCIANS II.  JOHN TYLER unbelievably bested RED BARON in a popular 5
minute brutal fight.  I don't know why, but somebody said that John went, "ack ack,"
and that's why he won.  Beats me!

The challenges:
     OBAN (35-4213) (17-7-1,92) of ON THE ROCKS challenged WHITEBRAID (15-2110) (35-
63-1,100) of GREENWARDENS.  Up 8.  OBAN was defeated by WHITEBRAID in an action
packed 1 minute gruesome Challenge melee.  Wow, a winning streak starting here!  Or
at least a winning dotted line.
     REPUGNANT (97-3677) (16-9-4,105) of SONS OF SATAN challenged TREEFROG (15-4177)
(29-33-0,121) of GREENWARDENS.  Up 16.  REPUGNANT overpowered TREEFROG in a 1 minute
one-sided Challenge struggle.  I find frogs often repugnant, when they're slimy
because I don't like slime, not even gumbo, but toads more repugnant because they're
ickier.
     GARY M. REAPER (32-2502) (67-37-1,193) of DEVIL ADVOCATES challenged SERGE (32-
3549) (44-43-0,195) of ASSORTED.  Up 2.  GARY M. REAPER demolished SERGE in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge competition.  So, does this mean Serge has been reaped?
Or that he's going gary.  Um, gray.
     SCAPA (35-4198) (26-8-1,198) of ON THE ROCKS challenged PHIL PHILANTHROPIST (20-
3330) (31-58-2,201) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Up 3.  SCAPA was devastated by PHIL
PHILANTHROPIST in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge contest.  Don't ask me whether this
was philanthropy, I don't understand that stuff.
     FEEL THE BUZZ (35-2490) (28-16-1,208) of ON THE ROCKS challenged KOOKABURRA (33-
4151) (131-173-5,209) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.  Up 1.  FEEL THE BUZZ demolished
KOOKABURRA in a popular 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  Cookie crumbs, or maybe
clay chips?  All over.
     BILBO BAGGINNI (9-5508) (36-16-0,219) of MIDDLE ITALY challenged GAZELLE (56-
3701) (99-102-0,256) of REDHORSE.  Up 37.  BILBO BAGGINNI was bested by GAZELLE in a
crowd pleasing 4 minute Challenge fight.  I bet the fight difference isn't QUITE as
much as it looks like.  Hidden tourney fights, you know.

For the title:
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (202-131-0,350) of DARKLINGS fought GOLEM (35-1485) (88-56-
1,232) of THE PHILANTHROPISTS.  NIGHTCAP vanquished GOLEM in an action packed 1
minute one-sided Title duel.  There are too many golems around here.  I'm, like,
totally glad we don't have one for Lord Marshall.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Gary M. Reaper -- There are a lot of disadvantages to that fighting style of yours.
And you felt four of them.  Maybe you should switch to TPing like me. -- Gazelle

Feel the Buzz -- Oh, that was just disgusting.  I don't know why I was so wimpy in
that fight. -- Rem

     Well, your nail polish was chipped.  I wasn't going to mention it, but you
     should understand that these little details have an effect.  And it was the
     wrong color.  Dull.  Blah.  Really, that brownish red is so *ordinary*!  It
     didn't go with anything else you were wearing.

Kookaburra -- I apologize for that pompous line, "I am already victorious, and you
the fool for not accepting it."  Gods.  I need a new speechwriter. -- Nightcap

     That's a big problem on the Isle.  Thousands of gladiators in need of
     speechwriters, and no speechwriters to be found.  I hear they ran screaming when
     the Commission first approached them to work on this.

Danish -- As you could tell, that wasn't my favorite weapon.  Mine is lighter, with a
homing device on the head.  But they won't let me use it in the arena. Anyway, you
fought well. -- Sekhat

Machine -- You broke my shield.  Wow.  Strong guy. -- Sandman

Redthorn -- That was well done.  And I congratulate you on the new rating you
received. -- Sleepwalker

Bravo -- I... won?  Oh.  Of course I won.  As well I should.  You fought well,
though. -- Jeo the Songsmith

Sekhat -- Are you saying that the Commission is LYING?  Wouldn't they KNOW if you're
Andorian? -- Wooden Arrow
P.S.  Besides, the cat people are Andorian.

     Except the ones from Ratan.

Gazelle -- I was trying to teach you to sit still and be patient, but I don't think
that's your "thing." -- Stump

Flesh Ripper -- You try to pull ME apart with a spoon, and I'll smack you with a
ladle! -- Whitebraid

Sleepwalker -- Oh, I dunno.  Maybe it didn't seem exciting to Debby, but I enjoyed
it. -- Redthorn

     Yes, well, enjoyable isn't the same thing as exciting, at ALL.

Debby Tonte -- I write to you, because Smug Bug won't ever read the personals, and I
say, I *am* going to have a winning streak.  It's beginning any day now! -- Wooden
Arrow

     Good luck!

S. Mary Rose -- Many people slip on mossy rocks. -- Mossrock

Controversy -- Nothing unbelievable about that win.  It's my winning streak, you see.
-- Stump

Repugnant -- I feel incredibly smug about that win.  Probably jinxes me, but I do
anyway.  *My* winning streak is beginning, I can tell! -- Treefrog
