                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

     Hey!  We were avoided!  How's that for a compliment!  And I was challenged, too.
Thank you, Himey the Pimp.
     Well...  *sigh*  I'm still here.  It's an honor and all that, but I'm afraid I'm
teetering on the brink of getting inducted.  When that happens, I'll retire and
probably go back to Lirith Kai.  Or... maybe someplace new.  I grew up there, have
spent several years here... I like new places.  Maybe I'll go to Ferencia.  Or tour
the Rirorni lands.
     I had given up trying to find miscreants to be the scourge of.  And then, two
nights ago--I stopped a mugging!  I was so glad to do it that I actually thanked the
mugger as I escorted him to the lockup.  And then the constables thanked me.  Imagine
that!  The mugger's victim didn't thank me.  She glared at me and said she could have
beaten the guy herself.  Perhaps she could have, but she wasn't doing it yet, and I
couldn't just stand around and watch, you know?  So, I'm very pleased.
     Other than that, which is no small thing, I have nothing to say.  Except, see
you next turn.

With best wishes,
Nightcap

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well
fergit it, 'cause this is the spy report for FREE BLADES.  I'm just going to, like,
touch up the golem report and then list the fights, okay?  It's too hot to do more.
MVP award for MOSSROCK?  GREENWARDENS' proud of him after beating REM and getting 36
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  TREEFROG got smashed by BITCHIN' BEAST, and
lost 26 points!  This Lord Marshall is like something else!  I don't know what else,
but something.  NIGHTCAP stopped RED BARON dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy
that said FREE BLADES' Lord Marshall was paying for drinks at the Wolf's Head?  Don't
look at me!
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just
wing this stuff.  DARKLINGS was FREE BLADES' most avoided team.  Is there some award
for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why DEVIL ADVOCATES' been avoiding
DARKLINGS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Okay, probably not that.
Can CASTAWAYS' SEKHAT be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is
that really the same?  (Of course not!)
     Speaking of challenging 27 points above did you hear about WILD THANG! of STREET
WALKERS vs. LUROCIANS II's LORD FIREFLASH?  (And how was that intro!)  Like, was that
some fighting on WILD THANG!'s part, or what?  And she got 21 points out of it!
(besides getting in my report)  Poor LORD FIREFLASH.  Ooh!  Did HIMEY THE PIMP really
know what he was doing when he challenged FLESH RIPPER?  A 65-46-1 speaks volumes.
(Zontoni said that.  I don't know what it means.) Maybe it means loud.  Do you think
HIMEY THE PIMP knew something before he challenged FLESH RIPPER?  He got a win and 19
points.  What will the guy do next?
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job,
that's what!!!
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be
a famous spy reporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really
should stop.  It's been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

     We had nineteen fights, one standby, seven challenges.  This is really good!
Let's keep it up.
     ABSOLUTION (32-5301) (18-4-2,78) of ANGELS OF PAIN fought BITTER ALMOND (103-41)
(14-16-4,50) of the College of Mimes.  ABSOLUTION demolished BITTER ALMOND in an
exciting 1 minute gory one-sided bout.
     BITCHIN' BEAST (33-5228) (15-8-0,105) of DIVINE HERITAGE fought TREEFROG (15-
4177) (31-52-0,141) of GREENWARDENS.  BITCHIN' BEAST devastated TREEFROG in a popular
1 minute brutal mismatched brawl.
     SAVORY (32-4143) (43-41-1,162) of DEAD WE SUCK fought KING COREY (43-4620) (32-
30-1,129) of LUROCIAN ROYALTY.  SAVORY vanquished KING COREY in a 1 minute one-sided
fray.  The least popular fighter this week was KING COREY 43-4620.  Probably because
he's from Veastian.
     THRASHER MALONE (72-4847) (23-19-0,167) of TOURNEY TEAM fought REPUGNANT (97-
3677) (18-9-4,143) of SONS OF SATAN.  THRASHER MALONE defeated REPUGNANT in a 1
minute struggle.
     S. MARY ROSE (78-2313) (73-82-2,165) of HABIT fought TIA MATTE (32-5321) (24-8-
0,134) of DEVIL ADVOCATES.  S. MARY ROSE handily defeated TIA MATTE in a 1 minute
uneven fight.

     THE WITCH-KING (15-4029) (26-19-0,160) of WILD BOYS fought WHITEBRAID (15-2110)
(44-75-1,177) of GREENWARDENS.  THE WITCH-KING bested WHITEBRAID in a crowd pleasing
1 minute bout.
     REM (74-2853) (104-75-0,199) of DARKLINGS fought MOSSROCK (15-4871) (47-54-
2,169) of GREENWARDENS.  REM was unbelievably bested by MOSSROCK in an exciting 3
minute brutal contest.  Mossy's the top total parry, and this looks like his winning
streak!
     CONTROVERSY (64-3914) (52-59-1,182) of UNDER DURESS fought SLEEPWALKER (74-2843)
(64-119-1,176) of DARKLINGS.  CONTROVERSY demolished SLEEPWALKER in a 1 minute
mismatched match.  Controversy is the top slasher, that sharp tongue, you know.
     MACHINE (56-3795) (47-45-0,191) of DIRTIE fought WOODEN ARROW (15-4619) (37-49-
0,161) of GREENWARDENS.  MACHINE was beaten by WOODEN ARROW in a 2 minute fight.
     SISSY CHRISSY (29-1347) (48-44-3,192) of STREET WALKERS fought STUMP (15-4882)
(33-77-0,180) of GREENWARDENS.  SISSY CHRISSY overpowered STUMP in a 2 minute
gruesome one-sided fight.  Sissy is most striking.  I knew that.
     KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (142-183-5,207) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES fought REDTHORN (15-
4943) (37-43-0,189) of GREENWARDENS.  KOOKABURRA overpowered REDTHORN in a 1 minute
uneven duel.  Kookie is the top basher.

The challenges:
     GIMME SOME SUGAR (19-4936) (65-46-0,199) of ARMY OF DARKNESS challenged SEKHAT
(7-2251) (52-99-3,196) of CASTAWAYS.  Down 3.  GIMME SOME SUGAR overcame SEKHAT in an
action packed 1 minute Challenge fight.
     HIMEY THE PIMP (29-730) (64-46-1,210) of STREET WALKERS challenged FLESH RIPPER
(74-3375) (36-20-2,274) of LUROCIANS XI.  Up 64.  HIMEY THE PIMP overpowered FLESH
RIPPER in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge struggle.  Is that reckless, or what?
Himey's the steeliest wall.
     NOREASTER (35-3896) (47-28-1,206) of DIRT DEVILS challenged SMUG BUG (55-2900)
(126-196-0,216) of RHYME TYME.  Up 10.  NOREASTER luckily beat SMUG BUG in a crowd
pleasing 4 minute Challenge competition.  The most popular warrior this turn was SMUG
BUG 55-2900.  Not with me.
     WILD THANG! (29-2393) (38-30-0,194) of STREET WALKERS challenged LORD FIREFLASH
(33-2966) (66-56-1,221) of LUROCIANS II.  Up 27.  WILD THANG! vanquished LORD
FIREFLASH in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  Wild is the leading lunger.
     GARY M. REAPER (32-2502) (79-46-1,202) of DEVIL ADVOCATES challenged SERGE (32-
3549) (49-59-0,197) of ASSORTED.  Down 5.  GARY M. REAPER overcame SERGE in a popular
1 minute Challenge match.  Gary's other name is Mr. Accuracy.
     BILBO BAGGINNI (9-5508) (48-25-0,183) of MIDDLE ITALY challenged SANDMAN (74-
2896) (68-99-3,181) of DARKLINGS.  Down 2.  BILBO BAGGINNI lost to SANDMAN in a 2
minute Challenge battle.  Sandman is the top parry-ripper.
     MARTIN BLANK (82-28434) (47-14-0,235) of BLOOD TITANS challenged ARGUMENT (64-
3915) (49-62-0,247) of UNDER DURESS.  Up 12.  MARTIN BLANK bested ARGUMENT in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute Challenge fight.  Martin's the top piker, in one sense of that
word.  He isn't a piker in the bars.

For the title:
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (222-132-0,475) of DARKLINGS fought RED BARON (33-1092) (70-
66-3,223) of LUROCIANS II.  NIGHTCAP slimly won victory over RED BARON in an action
packed 1 minute Title duel.  Not only is Nightcap the Lord Marshall, he's the top
parry-lunger and the overall popularity leader.  So there.  AND he writes columns.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Nightcap -- I didn't expect to win on that challenge, but every now and then you have
to challenge yourself.  Besides a little humility every now and then isn't a bad
thing. -- Himey

Flesh Ripper -- YOu'd think someone with an advanced master in defense would at least
attempt to dodge an attack every now and then. -- Wild Thang

Lord Fireflash -- I hoped that lived up to all your expectations. -- Sissy Chrissy

Hey I was most challenged again!  Wait, does that mean I'm really liked or really
hated, I'm confused. -- Sissy Chrissy

     I never have figured that out, either.

Debbie -- We read the newsletter and we care, and just so the Greenwardens don't feel
completely alone, we promise to try and be a little more vocal. -- Roadkill and the
Street Walkers

     Thank you.  I've wondered.

Mossrock -- *wink*  I don't know what you mean.  *blink* *hairy eyeball* -- Rem

Himey the Pimp -- Thanks for the challenge!  You have some nice moves. -- Nightcap

Gary M. Reaper -- The kind of fight that brought you here, eh?  I suppose it was a
good one.  I really couldn't figure out how to block you or parry you. -- Sekhat

     You should have used your tail.

Argument -- Hmm.  I'm not convinced. -- Sandman

Redthorn -- How on Ghea did you come back from that first hit?  And the second one?
I applaud your desperation strategy! -- Sleepwalker

Stump -- I hate your armor.  Scraped and dented it pretty good, didn't I?  Although
it took me a while to create a weak spot that I could exploit.  You should work on
twitching your eyes, or some other odd-looking mannerism, so you can distract your
opponents. -- Rem

We really wanted not to do personals this time, we were READY not to do personals,
and then... Jorja found out.  So, personals:

Savory -- Don't you DARE bring me flines, I mean FLIES, in the Infirmary! --
Treefrog, hoping to retire in the foreseeable future and become human again

Controversy -- Let us keep our argument private, where it belongs.  Debby is a nice
kid, but she talks too much. -- Wooden Arrow

S. Mary Rose -- Nonsense, don't listen to Debby Tonte.  I'm not an habitual loser,
you know.  My winning streak is developing quite well. -- Whitebraid

Rem -- What IS it with the twitching, anyway?  It must be some kind of trick. --
Stump
P.S.  Probably magic.

Sleepwalker -- I didn't put anything on the thorns!  Honest, really, I didn't. --
Redthorn, shifting his eyes around

King Corey -- That's what ambition will do to you.  Along with me. -- Mossrock
