                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Hail, Free Blades,

     Yes, I know, I neglected to get a column together last cycle--mainly because of
a variety of random delays.  By the time I got around to thinking about writing one I
was getting called in to fight.  So I made sure to get it on my calendar to write one
early.  Not that I have that much to say...
     I took the title last turn against Martin Blank.  It was a good fight, but I'm
finally getting myself up there in terms of fighting skills.  Takes a while to learn
and get into position, but I'm no longer the weakling I was when I arrived here on
the Isle.  This turn I managed to beat Flesh Ripper.  He had beaten my teammate The
Lion King several times in really unusual fights, so I wanted to see if there was
really something special about him.  Turns out, not so much.  Apparently Lion King
just stinks...
     Next interesting tidbit is that the tournament will take place before you read
this.  I'm not going, but some of my teammates are.  Should be an interesting time.
I'm going to get myself into position and MAYBE get an Elligibles run by the end of
the year.  So we'll see how that goes.
     Maybe next time, if I manage to hold the title here, I'll get my act together
and tell a story.  I have some good ones.

So everyone root for me, okay?

Noreaster
Lord Marshall

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, okay, okay, a spy report.  I don't want to do one today, okay?  I mean,
the sun is shining.  That's a rare thing in January, and I want to go OUT.  But,
okay, first a spy report.  So, um...
     Drizzt got 34 points, which was more than just about anybody.  Maybe entirely
more than anybody, I don't know.  I have to, like, trust the scribes on this.  And S.
Mary Rose lost 32 points.  Different fight.
     Darklings was or were most avoided by Devil Advocates.  That's no surprise,
Devil Advocates and, you know, the rest of the Dark One's teams are the only guys
doing anything... what's that word?  Right, proactive.  They're the only ones here
who are proactive.  Mossrock got the most challenges.
     We had twenty-four fights, with only two standbys, which is pretty good.  And
ten challenges, all by the Dark One's teams.  And I'm Just going to fly through this
(more of a glide, maybe), because I want to get out in that sunlight.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Most challenged again?  What a surprise.  Everyone on our team got challenged.  That
must mean something, probably that we're regarded as easy wins and good teachers.
But as noted last time, it beats digging ditches for a living.  Just. -- Whitebraid

Bilbo Bagginni -- I thought of a lot of different things I could say to you, but the
wait for my turn--we start at the bottom of our list and work up--was so long that I
forgot. -- Redthorn

Gary M. Reaper -- You like frog blood, do you? -- Treefrog

Absolution -- Well, I am NOT going to absolve you, so there! -- Wooden Arrow

Gimme Some Sugar -- Hyperactive in the Infirmary, not a good plan.  The orderlies are
real sticklers about the patients holding still.  Some people have been NAILED to the
beds. -- Whitebraid

Headless Norseman -- You might want to get a prosthetic head.  Makes it easier to see
where you're going.  Of course, that would also make it harder for me to trip you
up.... -- Mossrock

Segue -- I suppose it's just as well that the magical field here on the Isle has a
morphic effect.  The more wooden and stump-like I get, the less it hurts to get
whacked up. -- Stump

Sleepwalker -- I would prefer not to hang at all. -- Whitebraid

The Lion King -- That, now that strikes me funny.  When my opponent says, "Give up!
You can't possibly win!"  And then I beat them.  And the spectators threw flowers at
me.  Take that. -- Sekhat

Lord Fireflash -- Not so flashy this time.  Sorry, I've got no call to gloat.  You
had a crummy day. -- Rem

Martin Blank -- Augh.  Talent.  I hate it when my opponent has that. -- Sleepwalker
P.S.  Well, actually, I like to see talent, but not when it's hurting me.

Drizzt -- You gave me a pretty good fight, which is saying something, considering how
much less experienced you are, and without a winning record. -- Nightcap

Aldaldon -- Heh.  You defeated me while I was still cocking my head to the side and
asking you to repeat your name. -- Sandman
