                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

I am Absolution and I am your Lord Marshall.

Hail Free Blades.

     I'm not really sure how I ended up here, other than I pounded S. Mary Rose who
had pounded Bilbo Bagginni the turn before.  Bilbo is far better than I am, so I'm
not sure how that worked out, but I am glad to take it.
     I'm not the writer that Bilbo is, so you won's get a big fancy story, you just
get some observations and thoughts, and I hope that is enough for you.  If I stick
around a bit I will get you a short story, in any case.
     My first thought was that Free Blades has been really odd the last couple of
turns.  First, Jorja brought back her small army, which was  awesome.  Like most of
the regional ADM arenas, Free Blades is very small  these days and that big influx of
warriors allowed us to fight actual warriors  instead of stand ins.  Plus it wasn't
like our stable and the stable of Otis the Drunk fighting each other 100 times...
     This past turn, I guess her crew didn't fight and it was back to business as
usual.  I think our squad fought 8 NPCs or something.  I hope she does find the time
to issue orders to her crew, as it will make things more interesting.
     Otherwise, not much is going on.  The Dark One's stable in Free Blades is up to
21 active warriors, which is by far a record.  He has made a commitment to becoming a
strong ADM manager and it definitely is starting to come together.  We have some real
young talent here, which  is a lot of fun.  I guess we'll see where it takes us.
     So at this point I need to get back to my workout.  I'll bid you all a good few
days until we get back out on the sands again.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     We've got, like, fog!  That is so cool.  Of course, it's fog, it's supposed to
be cool.  Warm fog would be strange and probably full of, you know, monsters or
something.
     The Unknown Spymaster made some notes about today's fights, but he had a bag
over his head, so who knows what he missed?  He said Sir Tristam went up 35 points,
and Peter Bond went down 33 points.  Different fights.  And Devil Advocates avoided
Darklings, and Djaik got the most challenges.
     And I got a clerk to count things, and HE says, thirty-five fights, six
challenges, five standbys, and yes, Jorja's guys did fight, about twenty of them like
she said.  We'll have to see if they fight again next time!

     PING (17-3787) (17-5-1,51) of G.O.L.F. fought WIND RIDER (15-4876) (25-30-0,46)
of GREENWARDENS.  PING demolished WIND RIDER in a 2 minute gory one-sided duel.  I
guess the wind wasn't blowing the right way.
     BILL P. GORE (32-5114) (21-1-1,82) of DEVIL ADVOCATES fought SANDY (1-6821) (23-
48-1,67) of HOMICIDAL MANIACS.  BILL P. GORE demolished SANDY in a 1 minute
mismatched match.  Oh oh!  She might have something to SAY about that!
     LASH LARUE (43-3806) (35-27-0,46) of THE FAMILY fought NEWT ROCKNE (19-5179)
(20-3-1,87) of MAN OR BEAST?.  LASH LARUE was devastated by NEWT ROCKNE in a popular
1 minute uneven bout.  So far the "new strategies" Jorja mentioned aren't helping,
are they?
     LANI TYL KOGAN (65-2804) (30-28-1,72) of CHAN CHI MONASTERY fought SIR TRISTAM
(33-3277) (15-9-2,65) of KNIGHTS OF LEGEND.  LANI TYL KOGAN was savagely slain by SIR
TRISTAM in an exciting 2 minute struggle.  Well!  That's no way to welcome a woman
back to town!

     XARA (78-2254) (20-13-0,50) of SAND DANCERS fought BITTER ALMOND (103-41) (14-
16-4,50) of the College of Mimes.  XARA handily defeated BITTER ALMOND in an action
packed 1 minute mismatched match.  I guess it's better to beat a standby than nobody.
     JONATHANNIE (56-3747) (20-12-0,93) of BAD APPLES fought NAHTALEE (9-4871) (16-
13-0,84) of THE MONGOLOIDS.  JONATHANNIE narrowly defeated NAHTALEE in an exciting 3
minute gory bout.  I got hit with an apple once.  It left a bruise!
     BLACK DOMINO (58-6062) (26-16-1,95) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES fought BITTER ALMOND
(103-41) (14-16-4,50) of the College of Mimes.  BLACK DOMINO was overpowered by
BITTER ALMOND in a 1 minute one-sided match.  That's gotta make a guy feel stupid,
you know?
     L.A. WOMAN (65-6317) (23-23-1,118) of KILLER TUNES fought COUNTER OFFER (84-
25636) (24-5-0,100) of VIKING LINGO.  L.A. WOMAN was overpowered by COUNTER OFFER in
a popular 1 minute uneven duel.  Well, you know, he offered a Porsche.  That's
tempting.
     CEDAR (29-4319) (33-51-2,149) of CARDOW HUNTERS fought MAREI (103-37) (38-32-
2,150) of the College of Mimes.  CEDAR won victory over MAREI in a popular 1 minute
bout.  Okay.

     HALLAM (76-2369) (24-33-0,125) of SAND DANCERS fought ROSELLA (103-39) (26-25-
0,100) of the College of Mimes.  HALLAM beat ROSELLA in a 2 minute competition.  The
standbys probably aren't liking this, but they don't, you know, get paid for LIKING
it.
     PETER BOND (49-3089) (27-33-0,143) of THE BONDS fought SAVORY (32-4143) (63-67-
1,97) of DEAD WE SUCK.  PETER BOND was overpowered by SAVORY in a popular 1 minute
gruesome uneven duel.  And does anybody believe Savory's team name?
     BACARDI LIMON (12-5509) (17-14-0,117) of BLACKED OUT ON... fought MOUSE NOYLE
(17-6252) (54-82-0,136) of MIDDLE WAY.  BACARDI LIMON was overpowered by MOUSE NOYLE
in a 1 minute one-sided bout.  Oh, great, a drunken mouse.  That is just exactly what
we need!
     THE SHADOW (61-2742) (34-52-0,144) of FAVORITE GUYS fought XHUGHA KARGARIT (103-
38) (32-28-1,130) of the College of Mimes.  THE SHADOW beat XHUGHA KARGARIT in an
action packed 2 minute fight.  At the end there, where the Shadow said he knew?  Knew
what?  Why doesn't anybody tell me these things?
     WHIFF (3-7295) (24-11-1,169) of LEGIONS' OF HELL fought TREEFROG (15-4177) (38-
73-0,121) of GREENWARDENS.  WHIFF defeated TREEFROG in an action packed 2 minute
fight.  I don't get why Treefrog wanted to come back.

     HEADLESS NORSEMAN (33-7758) (35-24-0,174) of HALLOWIENERS fought VARINA FIREHAIR
(78-1404) (31-31-0,138) of SAND DANCERS.  HEADLESS NORSEMAN devastated VARINA
FIREHAIR in a 1 minute one-sided bout.  She fluttered her eyelashes at him, but he
couldn't see 'em.  That's fair.  Why should SHE get away with the eyelashes thing
when others don't?
     ROOSTER (65-1414) (25-22-1,169) of KILLER TUNES fought DIJANNA (76-1992) (42-46-
0,142) of SAND DANCERS.  ROOSTER handily defeated DIJANNA in a 1 minute uneven duel.
What a time to find out you're allergic to feathers!
     SLEEPWALKER (74-2843) (84-145-2,198) of DARKLINGS fought GUILLOTINE (12-6588)
(21-4-1,154) of BLADES OF TERROR.  SLEEPWALKER was savagely defeated by GUILLOTINE in
an exciting 1 minute gory duel.  Wow, Guillotine took the top of his head right OFF.
If he hadn't moved at the last minute, his whole HEAD would've come off.
     WISHI HADA CLUE (9-787) (42-34-1,195) of THE MONGOLOIDS fought GREEN KNIGHT (33-
2536) (25-19-1,160) of KNIGHTS OF LEGEND.  WISHI HADA CLUE viciously subdued GREEN
KNIGHT in a 6 minute competition.  Well, maybe he'll have a clue next time.
     BELA LUGOSI (40-4114) (25-18-1,187) of SUPERIOR FORCES fought SEKHAT (7-2251)
(70-127-3,197) of CASTAWAYS.  BELA LUGOSI was overpowered by SEKHAT in a popular 1
minute one-sided bout.  I don't know what that means, probably something about
experience, you know?

     JERK O'LANTERN (33-7742) (33-15-0,191) of HALLOWIENERS fought CONTROVERSY (64-
3914) (66-91-1,187) of UNDER DURESS.  JERK O'LANTERN devastated CONTROVERSY in an
exciting 1 minute one-sided fight.  Well, that's fair.  Controversy can be
devastating, too.  I mean, look at the arguments over whether we should have
artichokes or asparagus at the special dinner before the tourney!  People were
stabbing each other!  And the eggplant people were just impossible.
     LUCK DEVIL (15-5162) (28-16-1,185) of THE DEVIL'S OWN fought SCOVELLIE (53-6579)
(31-26-2,207) of CHAN CHI MONASTERY.  LUCK DEVIL vanquished SCOVELLIE in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute bloody one-sided fray.  Well, that's luck for you.
     REPUGNANT (97-3677) (44-28-4,199) of SONS OF SATAN fought MARTIN BLANK (82-
28434) (80-27-1,202) of BLOOD TITANS.  REPUGNANT was overpowered by MARTIN BLANK in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided duel.  Martin just, like, blanked him out.
     SERIAL MURDERER (9-990) (36-52-0,212) of THE MONGOLOIDS fought S. MARY ROSE (78-
2313) (94-107-2,199) of HABIT.  SERIAL MURDERER unbelievably bested S. MARY ROSE in a
crowd pleasing 6 minute bout.  I don't know, at the beginning of the fight it might
have been unbelievable, but later, say in minute five, well, it was beginning to look
real.
     TIA MATTE (32-5321) (47-29-0,260) of DEVIL ADVOCATES fought MURDEROUS MALNO (78-
1589) (36-63-0,194) of SAND DANCERS.  TIA MATTE was bested by MURDEROUS MALNO in an
exciting 1 minute battle.  But the arenamaster stopped Malno from jumping up and down
on her body.

     TRUST BUSTER 1 (32-5443) (34-5-0,221) of DEVIL ADVOCATES fought CROWN ROYAL (12-
5507) (21-8-3,209) of BLACKED OUT ON....  TRUST BUSTER 1 was subdued by CROWN ROYAL
in a crowd pleasing 1 minute competition.  Buster was SOOO drunk!
     PAM DEMONIUM (32-5551) (30-19-1,214) of DEVIL ADVOCATES fought MOONJUMPER (16-
3062) (67-100-1,200) of PUNNY AMINALS.  PAM DEMONIUM was overpowered by MOONJUMPER in
a popular 4 minute one-sided melee.  I guess it's that experience thing again.
     KHORA THE SMALL (78-519) (141-145-3,214) of SAND DANCERS fought THE LION KING
(35-4124) (33-14-0,212) of IN THE JUNGLE.  KHORA THE SMALL won victory over THE LION 
KING in a popular 3 minute gory duel.  She bit him!  I didn't expect that.  At the
end of the fight, she bit his neck.
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (263-137-0,670) of DARKLINGS fought DONKEY HOTAY (19-5187)
(40-13-1,195) of MAN OR BEAST?.  NIGHTCAP vanquished DONKEY HOTAY in an action packed
1 minute gory uneven duel.  Well, of course.  I keep expecting to wake up some
morning and find that Nightcap has been Inducted to Primus, you know?
     WILLY LIV (9-2930) (34-21-2,229) of THE MONGOLOIDS fought SHADOW (84-26165) (20-
8-0,189) of LORDS OF DARKNESS.  WILLY LIV devastated SHADOW in an action packed 1
minute one-sided competition.  Okay, so far, still Willy is still living.

The challenges:
     THE SICKLY DWARF (84-24303) (20-4-1,140) of MILWAUKEE RULES challenged DJAIK (9-
589) (32-45-2,142) of THE MONGOLOIDS.  Up 2.  THE SICKLY DWARF defeated DJAIK in an
exciting 1 minute Challenge struggle.  This was the Most Challenged fight.
     COREY THE MOOSE (84-19615) (34-16-0,174) of DRAFT DODGERS challenged MANIPULATOR
(64-3490) (56-120-6,180) of UNDER DURESS.  Up 6.  COREY THE MOOSE devastated
MANIPULATOR in a 1 minute uneven Challenge brawl.  I don't like drafts, either, but I
just go somewhere else.  A sunny beach is good.
     SEGUE (13-5394) (44-22-0,210) of THE DEVIL'S OWN challenged SERGE (32-3549) (63-
91-0,206) of ASSORTED.  Down 4.  SEGUE defeated SERGE in an exciting 1 minute
Challenge fight.  What I think is, Serge asks for it.
     BILBO BAGGINNI (9-5508) (83-35-1,202) of MIDDLE ITALY challenged ARGUMENT (64-
3915) (71-86-0,201) of UNDER DURESS.  Down 1.  BILBO BAGGINNI savagely defeated
ARGUMENT in a crowd pleasing 4 minute Challenge duel.  Argument and Controversy and
all those guys?  I don't have ANY sympathy for them.  They just like to make trouble.
     NOREASTER (35-3896) (81-37-2,223) of DIRT DEVILS challenged RAVEN EYES (12-2709)
(76-91-0,217) of SWEET MAGIC.  Down 6.  NOREASTER vanquished RAVEN EYES in an
exciting 1 minute uneven Challenge battle.  I'm not sure how that one happened, but
good!  That's why these new guys, not that Raven Eyes is a guy, are HERE, right?

For the title:
     ABSOLUTION (32-5301) (50-16-3,230) of ANGELS OF PAIN challenged SANDMAN (74-
2896) (90-123-3,251) of DARKLINGS.  Up 21.  ABSOLUTION bested SANDMAN in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute Challenge Title fight.  Good work, Absolution.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Confusion obviously continued last turn for us, but we *think* that things are sort
of straightened out now.  NEW strategies have been sent in for twenty warriors, which
still feels like an unmanageable number, and they were requested to go on personal
active maintenance.  The request by the said warriors that this be accompanied by a
generous personal allowance was denied, they want money, they have to earn it.  But I
*think* there will be twenty, not quite at random, running this time and henceforward
until I decide to make changes.  They range from Freshmen to Eligibles. -- Jorja,
confused but well-intentioned

Trust Buster 1 -- It worked.  Now I don't trust you. -- Sekhat

Serial Murderer -- It's not okay!  I need a famous detective to yank your collar and
bring you to justice! -- Sleepwalker

Segue -- Hmph.  Good try.  Perhaps you need a strategy adjustment? -- Nightcap

Lucky Devil -- Not this time.  I'm sorry about your ribs and your arm. -- Sandman
