                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

     Back on top!  Very cool for me.  I was told I have to write a column this turn,
which is not really what I wanted to do.  Both other times I wrote a column I lost
the following turn, so I'm more the dark, silent type...
     It's been stormy here on the Isle, which is, of course, my favorite type of
weather, but not only the weather has been turbulent.  We've had a lot of change at
the top recently.  I'd rather just settle in and hold the title for a while, but we
will see how that works out.
     Looks like a bunch of my guild-mates are logjamming up behind me, but it's too
bad for them.  No title shots for any of them until I get kicked out of here.
     Apparently 16 of 27 fights last turn involved one of us.  That's a very high
percentage...
     Yes.  I'm aware that I'm just rambling now, I just don't have a lot to say.  It
would be kind of lame if I just did one of those 'I'm great and you all stink'
columns, because they have both been done and they are probably even more boring.
Last time I gave you all the definition of my name.  Which was both a bit of
plagiarism AND boring.  So this is the best I can get for you.
     Eh.  Now I'M bored.  Back to practicing.  I need to win this week.
     Later Free Blades.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     This is, like, totally too much!  Rain!  Why should water fall out of the sky?
That's, you know, wasteful.  It should sit still in lakes or something.  You should
just all be glad we had an indoor arena to have the fights in.  Ha.  And people said
it was too expensive, but they're laughing out of, like, the other sides of their
mouths now.  So there.

The facts:
     Most points gained, REM, 31.  Most lost, Redthorn, 12.
     Most avoided, Darklings, by Devil Advocates.  Most challenged, Treefrog.
     Twenty-three fights, eleven challenges, three standbys.
     Most rain, everywhere.

     LUCK DEVIL (15-5162) (18-4-1,85) of THE DEVIL'S OWN fought ROSELLA (103-39) (26-
25-0,100) of Our Finest Standbys.  LUCK DEVIL overpowered ROSELLA in a 1 minute one-
sided bout.
     TRUST BUSTER 1 (32-5443) (17-0-0,84) of DEVIL ADVOCATES fought ROSELLA (103-39)
(26-25-0,100) of Our Finest Standbys.  TRUST BUSTER 1 overpowered ROSELLA in a 1
minute uneven fight.
     ERTL WISESTAFF (84-7570) (20-11-1,147) of PHILANTHROPISTS17 fought MAREI (103-
37) (38-32-2,150) of Our Finest Standbys.  ERTL WISESTAFF overpowered MAREI in a 1
minute uneven fight.
     That's oh and three for the standbys.

     FLESH RIPPER (74-3375) (49-31-2,196) of LUROCIANS XI fought MAKADOS (29-4704)
(29-18-0,162) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  FLESH RIPPER vanquished MAKADOS in a popular 2
minute brutal mismatched fray.  And why not, after all?  Makados had flesh, it got
ripped.
     REM (74-2853) (123-80-0,207) of DARKLINGS fought MARTIN BLANK (82-28434) (65-20-
0,210) of BLOOD TITANS.  REM viciously subdued MARTIN BLANK in a popular 3 minute
gruesome match.  This is the big point gain.
     ARGUMENT (64-3915) (62-73-0,200) of UNDER DURESS fought PATIENCE (35-2005) (37-
31-1,178) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  ARGUMENT devastated PATIENCE in a popular 1 minute
one-sided contest.  Well, you know, that kind of thing happens a lot.
     KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (157-192-5,205) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES fought SLEEPWALKER
(74-2843) (74-133-1,200) of DARKLINGS.  KOOKABURRA overpowered SLEEPWALKER in a 1
minute mismatched fight.  Experience, I guess.

     LORD FIREFLASH (33-2966) (78-68-1,181) of LUROCIANS II fought SAVORY (32-4143)
(55-53-1,195) of DEAD WE SUCK.  LORD FIREFLASH beat SAVORY in a 2 minute bout.  Fried
him.  Or her or it.
     RED BARON (33-1092) (84-76-3,229) of LUROCIANS II fought SEGUE (13-5394) (31-14-
0,223) of THE DEVIL'S OWN.  RED BARON devastated SEGUE in an exciting 2 minute one-
sided fight.  With exciting music.
     THE LION KING (35-4124) (19-7-0,220) of IN THE JUNGLE fought MOZART (35-3756)
(22-8-1,183) of PHILANTHROPISTS 3.  THE LION KING handily defeated MOZART in a crowd
pleasing 3 minute mismatched bout.  Music that did not soothe the beast, right?
     DRIZZT (40-4146) (46-52-0,228) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought SEKHAT (7-2251) (60-
115-3,196) of CASTAWAYS.  DRIZZT vanquished SEKHAT in an action packed 1 minute
mismatched bout.  I guess you don't have to be philanthrophic if you're not fighting
an anthrope.
     NYZEIL OGLATA (17-6753) (48-31-1,261) of PHILANTHROPISTS fought CONTROVERSY (64-
3914) (62-73-1,205) of UNDER DURESS.  NYZEIL OGLATA handily defeated CONTROVERSY in a
1 minute one-sided conflict.  No surprise.

4871) (52-73-2,149) of GREENWARDENS.  Up 10.  TIA MATTE subdued MOSSROCK in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute gory Challenge match.
     PAM DEMONIUM (32-5551) (20-8-1,130) of DEVIL ADVOCATES challenged STUMP (15-
4882) (35-99-0,120) of GREENWARDENS.  Down 10.  PAM DEMONIUM demolished STUMP in a 2
minute bloody mismatched Challenge competition.

vanquished MANIPULATOR in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.
     JERK O'LANTERN (33-7742) (21-5-0,158) of HALLOWIENERS challenged WOODEN ARROW

exciting 1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.

2313) (85-94-2,193) of HABIT.  Down 18.  REPUGNANT was overpowered by S. MARY ROSE in
a 1 minute mismatched Challenge match.
     GIMME SOME SUGAR (19-4936) (80-54-0,228) of ARMY OF DARKNESS challenged

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Bilbo Bagginni -- Andorian?  They called me an Andorian?  I'm extra-Ghean, but when
we landed on this world, we became Bonsur residents.  Anyway... that was a productive
fight.  The Commission says I'm stronger now.  I don't like your style, but it was
over quickly. -- Sekhat

Noreaster -- Wow, you ended up Lord Marshall.  If I'd known it was a title fight,

maybe I would have fought harder at the end.  But it was a good fight, wasn't it? --
Rem
P.S.  And congratulations!

Martin Blank -- I've still got a sore muscle in my back from all that twisting and
snakelike curving I did in our fight.  You were doing the same.  We must have looked
pretty weird!  And I do apologize for the mismatch.  Should've challenged.  I don't
know that I'll get a chance to do so this time either--got some other stuff to do
first.  Anyway, well fought. -- Nightcap

Lord Fireflash -- Eh, my style beats yours, pretty consistently.  Although from your
record, I'd guess that you're actually a better fighter.  Better luck next time. --
Sleepwalker

Arunda Rocktroll -- Oh!  You're a stand-in.  I guess they don't let trolls become
regular gladiators.  Anyway, any time a fight lasts six minutes, I guess one has to
say, "Well fought!" -- Sandman

     Why?

An oh-fer turn, five of the six losses to Devil Advocates and company.  What a
surprise. -- Greenwardens
