                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Greetings, my fellow Free Blades fighters!

     I know what you're thinking.  How could I possibly have anything left to say,
after all these columns?
     Last turn, I fought Golem of the Philanthropists.  (I'm not sure how his warrior
name fits in with the team theme, are you?  Anybody?)  I'm a Parry-Lunger, and Golem
is... something else.  He... (yes, he has a gender), has a winning record so he must
be fairly good at what he does.  But that day, he just wasn't in the mood, I guess.
     You do need to be in the right sort of mood, to fight well in the arena.  Not
angry, by any means!  Cheerful, upbeat, confident of doing well... but aggressive.
Kind of cheerfully mean, I guess.  Wow-- that sounds like the mindset of a serial
killer or something.  But it's what works, in the arena.  For me.  Other people's
minds may work differently.
     Anyway, Golem wasn't cheerful.  It... sorry, he... seemed down about something.
Later, when I wasn't in serial killer mode, I asked, and learned that the heroic
dwarf after whom the golem had been modeled is coming to town.  Nothing like having
your nose rubbed in the fact that you're a copy of somebody, eh?  I would say that
Golem has won his own name and his own reputation, and proved his own worth.  But
sometimes it's hard to see that.
     Everyone, turn to the golem next to you (and there probably is one), and tell
him/her/it, "You're a person and you matter to me."

With regards,
Lord-Marshall Nightcap

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, here we are, and I'm already tired because of being really busy doing
other stuff, so, kinda quick, okay?
     Jeo the Songsmith had the biggest point gain:  30.  Machine had the biggest
loss:  24.  Same fight.
     On the Rocks was most avoided, Middle Italy avoided them the most.
     Feel the Buzz got the most challenges.
     Twenty-three fights, two standbys, nine challenges.
     We could be doing worse, and some arenas on the Isle are.

     KING COREY (43-4620) (24-18-1,64) of LUROCIAN ROYALTY fought BITTER ALMOND (103-
41) (14-16-4,50) of the College of Mimes.  KING COREY overpowered BITTER ALMOND in a
1 minute one-sided duel.  Bitter is more of a poisoner than a swordsman.
     KRYSTAL MEYERS (43-4635) (32-16-0,174) of POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE fought WHITEBRAID
(15-2110) (36-63-1,109) of GREENWARDENS.  KRYSTAL MEYERS overpowered WHITEBRAID in a
1 minute one-sided match.  Oh, cheese louise!  Can you say "way big point
difference"?
     MACHINE (56-3795) (36-36-0,156) of DIRTIE fought JEO THE SONGSMITH (1-3260) (60-
129-0,112) of BLUE EYRIE.  MACHINE was overcome by JEO THE SONGSMITH in an action
packed 5 minute bloody duel.  The major point movements.
     SLEEPWALKER (74-2843) (53-110-1,160) of DARKLINGS fought MOSSROCK (15-4871) (41-
40-2,172) of GREENWARDENS.  SLEEPWALKER was unbelievably bested by MOSSROCK in a
popular 3 minute match.  I believe it.  After all, I'm nearly a sleepwalker myself!

     SANDMAN (74-2896) (56-91-3,171) of DARKLINGS fought SAVORY (32-4143) (34-30-
1,150) of DEAD WE SUCK.  SANDMAN was beaten by SAVORY in a 2 minute fight.  Tastes
better, anyway.
     FLESH RIPPER (74-3375) (24-12-1,165) of LUROCIANS XI fought CONTROVERSY (64-
3914) (42-49-1,163) of UNDER DURESS.  FLESH RIPPER overpowered CONTROVERSY in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute mismatched conflict.  Good.  That's what I like to see happen to
controversies.
     S. MARY ROSE (78-2313) (60-75-1,155) of HABIT fought THE QUICKLING (70-1669)
(103-250-3,168) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  S. MARY ROSE demolished THE QUICKLING in an
exciting 1 minute one-sided bout.  Couldn't have happened to a more deserving
opponent.
     REM (74-2853) (89-70-0,202) of DARKLINGS fought REDTHORN (15-4943) (31-29-0,163)
of GREENWARDENS.  REM devastated REDTHORN in an exciting 1 minute one-sided brawl.
It must be those tricky eye movements.
     RED BARON (33-1092) (59-57-3,203) of LUROCIANS II fought STUMP (15-4882) (31-59-
0,177) of GREENWARDENS.  RED BARON devastated STUMP in an exciting 2 minute bloody
uneven duel.  More foundation work, I guess.

     KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (131-174-5,193) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES fought BILBO BAGGINNI
(9-5508) (36-17-0,198) of MIDDLE ITALY.  KOOKABURRA handily defeated BILBO BAGGINNI
in a popular 1 minute uneven fight.  It's probably the "be prepared" thing.
     SUPERIOR FORCES (33-4543) (163-187-3,308) of DUPLICATE REDUNDANCY fought JOHN
TYLER (5-4420) (48-14-0,224) of I'M HISTORY.  SUPERIOR FORCES was luckily beaten by
JOHN TYLER in a popular 6 minute bloody brawl.  Didn't look like luck to me, looked
more like clean living.
     LORD FIREFLASH (33-2966) (51-51-1,230) of LUROCIANS II fought ARUNDA ROCKTROLL
(103-35) (60-40-2,190) of the College of Mimes.  LORD FIREFLASH viciously subdued
ARUNDA ROCKTROLL in a 4 minute conflict.  Way to go!  Arunda won't mind, just, um,
avoid dark alleys for a while.
     DANISH (74-2451) (80-34-0,216) of THE ALPHABET fought SEKHAT (7-2251) (47-84-
2,195) of CASTAWAYS.  DANISH handily defeated SEKHAT in an exciting 1 minute brutal
one-sided bout.  Ha.  That's all I'm going to say on this one.  Just, Ha.
     ARGUMENT (64-3915) (40-51-0,215) of UNDER DURESS fought MARTIN BLANK (82-28434)
(33-8-0,216) of BLOOD TITANS.  ARGUMENT was defeated by MARTIN BLANK in an exciting 2
minute fight.  And the arguments are losing today.  Everything is harmonious.

The challenges:
     OBAN (35-4213) (17-8-1,89) of ON THE ROCKS challenged BRAVO (96-3034) (12-11-
4,100) of PHONETIX.  Up 11.  OBAN slimly lost to BRAVO in an action packed 3 minute
gruesome Challenge fight.  Slim is good, and so is "still alive."
     MAKADOS (29-4704) (23-12-0,94) of PHILANTHROPISTS challenged TREEFROG (15-4177)
(29-34-0,105) of GREENWARDENS.  Up 11.  MAKADOS slimly won victory over TREEFROG in
an action packed 3 minute Challenge duel.  More slim!
     REPUGNANT (97-3677) (17-9-4,124) of SONS OF SATAN challenged WOODEN ARROW (15-
4619) (32-34-0,140) of GREENWARDENS.  Up 16.  REPUGNANT handily defeated WOODEN ARROW
in a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  This time, handy instead of slim.
     GIMME SOME SUGAR (19-4936) (51-40-0,187) of ARMY OF DARKNESS challenged SERGE
(32-3549) (44-44-0,192) of ASSORTED.  Up 5.  GIMME SOME SUGAR bested SERGE in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute Challenge match.  Just an ordinary sort of win, not slim or handy.

     SCAPA (35-4198) (26-9-1,189) of ON THE ROCKS challenged SMUG BUG (55-2900) (112-
190-0,189) of RHYME TYME.  Straight across.  SCAPA was viciously subdued by SMUG BUG
in an action packed 2 minute Challenge brawl.  I *knew* that Bug was vicious.
     UNFORGETTABLE (78-2306) (20-4-3,186) of THE WILLBURYS 78 challenged ALDALDON
(56-3913) (37-28-1,209) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Up 23.  UNFORGETTABLE devastated
ALDALDON in an exciting 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Bet Al forgets anyway.
     GOLEM (35-1485) (88-57-1,208) of THE PHILANTHROPISTS challenged GAZELLE (56-
3701) (100-102-0,274) of REDHORSE.  Up 66.  GOLEM outwaited GAZELLE in a 17 minute
Challenge brawl.  Really, this was too long.  Not only did my nail polish dry, it
weathered and started to grow out!
     GARY M. REAPER (32-2502) (68-37-1,206) of DEVIL ADVOCATES challenged FEEL THE
BUZZ (35-2490) (29-16-1,221) of ON THE ROCKS.  Up 15.  GARY M. REAPER was vanquished
by FEEL THE BUZZ in a 2 minute uneven Challenge battle.  This was Buzz the Most
Challenged.  I think.  I'm not going back to look.  Sorry, but it isn't that kind of
day.

For the title:
     PHIL PHILANTHROPIST (20-3330) (32-58-2,220) of PHILANTHROPISTS challenged
NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (203-131-0,377) of DARKLINGS.  Up 157.  PHIL PHILANTHROPIST was
devastated by NIGHTCAP in a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.  Good try, but it'll
still be Nightcap doing the column.

THE DEAD                   W   L  K TEAM NAME              SLAIN BY                  TURN

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Bilbo Bagginni --  That was a good fight.  *sigh*  Which is saying something,
considering I've got 202 fights under my belt and you've got 53.  So... you lost, but
well fought. -- Gazelle

     Probably tourney fights, too, though.

Redthorn -- Glad I was able to teach you something.  And it might interest you to
know that at no point was I aiming for either of your legs. -- Sekhat

Danish -- I've never been good at resisting pastries.  Good thing I have such a high
metabolism! -- Rem

Helyse -- ...oh.  You're a stand-in.  Uh, lucky matchup for you against my style? --
Sandman

Wooden Arrow -- Guess I hit an artery?  That was an awfully short fight. --
Sleepwalker

Makados -- The audience liked us both, after a nine-minute fight.  Thanks to me.
With my flashy moves, I pushed you beyond your skills and made us both look good.
You're welcome. -- Jeo the Songsmith

Debby -- I don't see why you have to single me out and make me conspicuous by
mentioning my point drop.  It could happen to anybody! -- Wooden Arrow

     Well, if Anybody has the biggest drop, I'll mention him, too.

Controversy -- Ha!  Nothing controversial about that win, it's part of my new
winninger profile. -- Mossrock
P.S.  If Talahya can pause to look at their clothing, somebody should surely look at
yours.  Not that they'd have to PAUSE, because that combination of screaming orange
and electric blue will stop anyone in their tracks.  You should at least put the
orange out of its misery, the screaming is getting on my nerves.

Sleepwalker -- Well, you LOOKED like you were asleep.  Especially with that record.
How was I to know differently? -- Wooden Arrow the Sadly Maligned and Unjustly
Singled Out

Sekhat -- Darned Fratsfans, always lording it over people!  The Shews mopped up the
forest with you. -- Redthorn

Superior Forces -- You can stand there with a sneer on your face, but it won't do you
any good.  I *am* working on my winning streak.  I'm laying a foundation.  I never
expected to DEFEAT someone with three times my fights, but I can learn, and I *will*.
-- Stump

Oban -- I suppose it was too much to expect you to teach me skills, too?  Still, I'll
take the win.  It'll make a fine addition to my winning streak. -- Whitebraid

Repugnant -- You just HAD to do that, didn't you? -- Treefrog, going for the dashed
and dashing line of wins

Debby -- I'm not slimy or repugant. -- Treefrog
