                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Hail Free Blades,

I'm baaaaack.

Absolution here, your Lord Marshall.

     Those of you who have not held the title before, realize that there's way more
to it than the glitz and glamor of presiding over the games for the Free Blades
regional.  In addition I'm the head of the Free Blades contingent of the Army of
Alastari.  Which means there is a LOT of paperwork.  Tons of it.  Running a small
army is not easy, and even though there are tons of clerks and assistants to handle
all the real work, it all requires the signature of approval that can only be given
by the Lord Marshall.
     So every day I have like 200 documents to read and sign.  You can't just sign
without reading, as all kinds of things end up on your desk.  You definitely have to
read them all.
     I'm not even sure how some of the... ahem... lower wit warriors to hold this
title have managed it.  I guess they just rubber stamped everything, which is why
there are crates of rotting oranges in the mess hall, we have a huge collection of
Bronze age weapons in the armory and maybe why we have an official insurance company
for Free Blades.
     We're immortal!  Who needs insurance???
     In any case, we have the tournament coming up and I am leading our small caravan
over to the tourney grounds.  There should be a good turnout of Free Blades warriors
this time.  I believe last mail in we had the most Tournament Champions, which is
quite a feat.
     We're looking to repeat it.

So I am off, and I wish you all best of luck at the tournament.

Hopefully I'll be back again next turn.

Absolution

Lord Marshall

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, we've got notes--Olaf Modeen did them.  Then he went off to take his
medication.  Ha!  I heard what he was going after:  a rootbeer float!  I wouldn't
mind medication like that!  With, you know, aged vanilla.  I don't know what they
MEAN by that, exactly, but it's good.
     Well, anyway, here's stuff about the fights.  Sekhat went up 38 points.  Dijanna
went down 22 points.  Different fights.
     Darklings was most avoided by Devil Advocates.  Cedar got the most challenges.
     Thirty-seven fights, eleven challenges, eight standbys, something like six
action packed fights and seven exciting ones.  I might be wrong about those last two
numbers.  I mean, there's just so many numbers I can think about at one time, and
that was more that I usually do.  But lots.  Not like SOME Advanced arenas I could
mention.  Oh, and I want to thank Absolution for the column, and Jorja for the
personal.  That's better than the other regionals do, too.

     PING (17-3787) (18-5-1,61) of G.O.L.F. fought SANDY (1-6821) (23-49-1,66) of
HOMICIDAL MANIACS.  PING was subdued by SANDY in a 2 minute competition.  She does
that, you know.
     LASH LARUE (43-3806) (35-28-0,51) of THE FAMILY fought BILL P. GORE (32-5114)
(22-1-1,88) of DEVIL ADVOCATES.  LASH LARUE was vanquished by BILL P. GORE in a 1
minute mismatched bout.  Good work, Billy.
     BLACK DOMINO (58-6062) (26-17-1,62) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES fought BITTER ALMOND
(103-41) (14-16-4,50) of the College of Mimes.  BLACK DOMINO beat BITTER ALMOND in a
2 minute bout.  I should hope so!
     LANI TYL KOGAN (65-2804) (30-29-1,68) of CHAN CHI MONASTERY fought NAHTALEE (9-
4871) (16-14-0,84) of THE MONGOLOIDS.  LANI TYL KOGAN was narrowly defeated by
NAHTALEE in an exciting 4 minute conflict.  You know, I don't think Lani is doing too
well.
     TWIGGY RAMEIZ (82-7105) (16-7-0,55) of FEAR FACTORY II fought XARA (78-2254)
(21-13-0,61) of SAND DANCERS.  TWIGGY RAMEIZ slimly won victory over XARA in an
exciting 8 minute fight.  Eight minutes?  Just for a slim victory.  I mean, it should
be faster, or else more dramatic, or something?

     DIJANNA (76-1992) (42-47-0,140) of SAND DANCERS fought L.A. WOMAN (65-6317) (23-
24-1,104) of KILLER TUNES.  DIJANNA was narrowly defeated by L.A. WOMAN in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute brutal match.  Looks like Dijanna isn't sophisticated enough.  I
mean *I* could have told her that her clothes were ALL WRONG, but did she ASK?
Nobody asks me stuff like that.
     COUNTER OFFER (84-25636) (25-5-0,120) of VIKING LINGO fought PETER BOND (49-
3089) (27-34-0,110) of THE BONDS.  COUNTER OFFER devastated PETER BOND in a 2 minute
bloody one-sided duel.  And now Peter is making paper airplanes and wondering, like,
where did he go wrong?
     THE SICKLY DWARF (84-24303) (21-4-1,147) of MILWAUKEE RULES fought JONATHANNIE
(56-3747) (21-12-0,101) of BAD APPLES.  THE SICKLY DWARF savagely defeated
JONATHANNIE in an action packed 2 minute bout.  Gotta be careful about those bad
apples, Sickly.  Some of them tear you down even when they're building you up.
     THE SHADOW (61-2742) (35-52-0,150) of FAVORITE GUYS fought ROSELLA (103-39) (26-
25-0,100) of the College of Mimes.  THE SHADOW overpowered ROSELLA in a 1 minute one-
sided fight.  This is proper.
     TREEFROG (15-4177) (38-74-0,133) of GREENWARDENS fought SAVORY (32-4143) (64-67-
1,131) of DEAD WE SUCK.  TREEFROG was handily defeated by SAVORY in an exciting 1
minute one-sided fight.  I have to wonder why, you know, Treefrog came BACK.  It
can't be fond remembrance, can it?

     HEADLESS NORSEMAN (33-7758) (36-24-0,176) of HALLOWIENERS fought MOUSE NOYLE
(17-6252) (55-82-0,144) of MIDDLE WAY.  HEADLESS NORSEMAN overpowered MOUSE NOYLE in
a 1 minute uneven fight.  For a guy with no head, that Norseman is pretty cool.
     GREEN KNIGHT (33-2536) (25-20-1,169) of KNIGHTS OF LEGEND fought VARINA FIREHAIR
(78-1404) (31-32-0,140) of SAND DANCERS.  GREEN KNIGHT handily defeated VARINA
FIREHAIR in a 2 minute one-sided duel.  Complimentary colors.
     SLEEPWALKER (74-2843) (84-146-2,177) of DARKLINGS fought WHIFF (3-7295) (25-11-
1,171) of LEGIONS' OF HELL.  SLEEPWALKER handily defeated WHIFF in an exciting 1
minute uneven bout.  Hey, in your sleep, you can't smell, you know, anything at all.
     DONKEY HOTAY (19-5187) (40-14-1,210) of MAN OR BEAST? fought ROBIN OF SHEW-WOOD
(103-33) (1-0-1,220) of the College of Mimes.  DONKEY HOTAY was vanquished by ROBIN
OF SHEW-WOOD in a 1 minute uneven bout.  Oops.
     SANDMAN (74-2896) (90-124-3,205) of DARKLINGS fought ROOSTER (65-1414) (26-22-
1,172) of KILLER TUNES.  SANDMAN overpowered ROOSTER in a popular 2 minute brutal
one-sided duel.  The Rooster snores when he sleeps.

     SERGE (32-3549) (63-92-0,202) of ASSORTED fought LUCK DEVIL (15-5162) (29-16-
1,207) of THE DEVIL'S OWN.  SERGE defeated LUCK DEVIL in an exciting 1 minute duel.
That's probably experience.  People talk all the time about experience making a
difference.
     COREY THE MOOSE (84-19615) (35-16-0,187) of DRAFT DODGERS fought HELYSE (103-36)
(45-35-5,165) of the College of Mimes.  COREY THE MOOSE devastated HELYSE in a
popular 1 minute one-sided bout.  Yes, okay.
     JERK O'LANTERN (33-7742) (34-15-0,201) of HALLOWIENERS fought ROBIN OF SHEW-WOOD
(103-33) (1-0-1,220) of the College of Mimes.  JERK O'LANTERN demolished ROBIN OF
SHEW-WOOD in an action packed 1 minute uneven bout.  Sometimes the standbys try to
win, EVEN THOUGH their contracts don't encourage it.  That takes, like, totally a lot
of nerve.  SHE doesn't like that kind of thing.
     PAM DEMONIUM (32-5551) (30-20-1,191) of DEVIL ADVOCATES fought HELYSE (103-36)
(45-35-5,165) of the College of Mimes.  PAM DEMONIUM narrowly defeated HELYSE in an
action packed 2 minute fight.  Another good one.
     TRUST BUSTER 1 (32-5443) (34-6-0,200) of DEVIL ADVOCATES fought DREHVIN (103-34)
(75-45-7,200) of the College of Mimes.  TRUST BUSTER 1 handily defeated DREHVIN in a
1 minute mismatched competition.  Drehvin almost TURNED on that one and smashed Trust
Buster!  He was, like, totally wound up.

     TIA MATTE (32-5321) (47-30-0,193) of DEVIL ADVOCATES fought BELA LUGOSI (40-
4114) (25-19-1,180) of SUPERIOR FORCES.  TIA MATTE was overpowered by BELA LUGOSI in
a 1 minute one-sided match.  Yes, well, he SAID he was a superior force.  You didn't
think he was LYING, did you?
     WILLY LIV (9-2930) (35-21-2,243) of THE MONGOLOIDS fought S. MARY ROSE (78-2313)
(94-108-2,197) of HABIT.  WILLY LIV was devastated by S. MARY ROSE in an exciting 2
minute one-sided fight.  This is the experience thing again, right?
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (264-137-0,694) of DARKLINGS fought THE LION KING (35-4124)
(33-15-0,198) of IN THE JUNGLE.  NIGHTCAP beat THE LION KING in a crowd pleasing 2
minute brawl.  It's just, like, completely TOTALLY ridiculous for anyone here to have
that much recognition.  I bet if they showed recognition in Primus, there'd be people
there who didn't have that much.
     MARTIN BLANK (82-28434) (81-27-1,221) of BLOOD TITANS fought SEKHAT (7-2251)
(71-127-3,209) of CASTAWAYS.  MARTIN BLANK was vanquished by SEKHAT in an action
packed 1 minute mismatched bout.  Sekhat got a lot of points for this, I don't know
why.
     SEGUE (13-5394) (45-22-0,216) of THE DEVIL'S OWN fought HATHU (103-32) (5-1-
0,250) of the College of Mimes.  SEGUE was handily defeated by HATHU in a 2 minute
one-sided conflict.  That's just weird, you know?  We've got standbys closer in rank
to Segue, but do THEY get called out?  As if!

Oh, the challenges now!  Great.
     NEWT ROCKNE (19-5179) (21-3-1,94) of MAN OR BEAST? challenged SIR TRISTAM (33-
3277) (16-9-3,100) of KNIGHTS OF LEGEND.  Up 6.  NEWT ROCKNE demolished SIR TRISTAM
in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge competition.  A lot of people don't like newts.
     DJAIK (9-589) (32-46-2,141) of THE MONGOLOIDS challenged CEDAR (29-4319) (34-51-
2,159) of CARDOW HUNTERS.  Up 18.  DJAIK was overpowered by CEDAR in a 1 minute one-
sided Challenge fight.  This was the Most Challenged fight.  I hope there were good
skills, or at least a drink with an umbrella in it at the end.
     BACARDI LIMON (12-5509) (17-15-0,112) of BLACKED OUT ON... challenged HALLAM
(76-2369) (25-33-0,127) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 15.  BACARDI LIMON overpowered HALLAM in
a 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  I guess Hallam doesn't know what to do with
the limon.
     THE SALAMINIZER (65-1413) (25-22-1,164) of KILLER TUNES challenged MANIPULATOR
(64-3490) (56-121-6,172) of UNDER DURESS.  Up 8.  THE SALAMINIZER defeated
MANIPULATOR in an action packed 2 minute Challenge duel.  Manipulation is, like, not
the answer to everything.
     SHADOW (84-26165) (20-9-0,186) of LORDS OF DARKNESS challenged SCOVELLIE (53-
6579) (31-27-2,185) of CHAN CHI MONASTERY.  Down 1.  SHADOW vanquished SCOVELLIE in a
1 minute uneven Challenge duel.  Now, if Scovellie was back in the Andorian arenas,
she could get beaten by somebody ELSE.  But would it be better?
     GUILLOTINE (12-6588) (22-4-1,182) of BLADES OF TERROR challenged CONTROVERSY
(64-3914) (66-92-1,183) of UNDER DURESS.  Up 1.  GUILLOTINE was handily defeated by
CONTROVERSY in a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  I kind of thought this one might
go the other way.  It'd make, you know, more sense.

     WISHI HADA CLUE (9-787) (43-34-1,197) of THE MONGOLOIDS challenged MURDEROUS
MALNO (78-1589) (37-63-0,212) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 15.  WISHI HADA CLUE bested
MURDEROUS MALNO in a crowd pleasing 4 minute Challenge match.  Well, THAT will put
him in a temper.
     BILBO BAGGINNI (9-5508) (84-35-1,210) of MIDDLE ITALY challenged ARGUMENT (64-
3915) (71-87-0,210) of UNDER DURESS.  Straight across.  BILBO BAGGINNI demolished
ARGUMENT in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge competition.  Wine conquers all, right?
     REPUGNANT (97-3677) (44-29-4,203) of SONS OF SATAN challenged RAVEN EYES (12-
2709) (76-92-0,201) of SWEET MAGIC.  Down 2.  REPUGNANT was devastated by RAVEN EYES
in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge contest.  And all she did was LOOK at him.
     NOREASTER (35-3896) (82-37-2,234) of DIRT DEVILS challenged MOONJUMPER (16-3062)
(68-100-1,219) of PUNNY AMINALS.  Down 15.  NOREASTER overcame MOONJUMPER in a
popular 2 minute gruesome Challenge match.  I guess she jumped the wrong way.
     SERIAL MURDERER (9-990) (37-52-0,220) of THE MONGOLOIDS challenged KHORA THE
SMALL (78-519) (142-145-3,232) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 12.  SERIAL MURDERER was
devastated by KHORA THE SMALL in a 2 minute Challenge fight.  Well, foxes.  You know.

For the title:
     ABSOLUTION (32-5301) (51-16-3,238) of ANGELS OF PAIN fought CROWN ROYAL (12-
5507) (22-8-3,230) of BLACKED OUT ON....  ABSOLUTION devastated CROWN ROYAL in a
crowd pleasing 2 minute one-sided Title battle.  Good work, Absolution.
Congratulations.

Good column, Absolution.  Of course, at this point, ANY column would be good, but
still, thanks for the effort. -- Jorja
P.S.  As to active/inactive status on my warriors, there's been some confusion over
who is and who is not on maintenance, whether it's team or individual maintenance,
and so on.  I *hope* they're on individual mainteance/active today, because I don't
have time to do anything with them this week.  Next turn, maybe better here.

I *think* we went 9-11, with a death.  I really did intend to do a little strategy
tweaking, if I could remember how, but Things Came Up.  Sorry about that. -- Jorja
