                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                      Reflections by the Keeper of the Runeblade

Not all that sure why Desiree wanted a Column on a fight where I just demolished Rob
A. Ree, but, well, here's what I have.  I just came from Home Guard where my brother
in arms, Jakuch Ito, and I ruled for the last bunch of turns.  With Time Square the
three of use held down Captain of the Guard off and on.  We are all fast LU's, it
seemed to come down to who was more decisive.  As Jakuchu Ito is 7' tall and does a
whole bunch of damage he seemed to get the better of Time Square.  As I wouldn't
challenge Jakuchu he held the throne longer than I; however, now that we are in the
toughest arena in Alastari I expect I'll hold the Runeblade much more than he.  I
feel badly for those below us as we should hold the Blade for the majority of our
stay here.  I was Runner-Up in Champions and Jakuchu Ito is just a BEAST.

Well, that's all for now.  I am pleased to reign in Darkholm and look forward to
competition.

Tum

P.S.  To clear up any confusion, my manager is Shocking Toad, NOT Tum.  I was named
in honor of the great manager and Shocking Toad appreciates all Manager Tum did for
him at his first Face to Face!

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Brave men and women (and golems) of Darkholm!

TUM (18-7380) (35-19-2,258) of FROM THE FACE challenged DARK GUMBY (7-4694) (64-41-
1,287) of WASTELAND II.  TUM was handily defeated by DARK GUMBY in a 1 minute one-
sided Challenge Title match.  Interestingly, this was a lunger vs. waste fight and
although DG has a lot more fights showing, I would've bet on Tum.  Tum, I thank you
much for the DM column and it's too bad you were beaten by Dark Gumby because I
suspect he won't write one.  Good luck getting up to the top again.

In his column, Tum mentioned Jakuchu as someone likely to take the title.  Let's see
how he did....  JAKUCHU ITO (7-5102) (39-16-1,307) of NINJAS challenged SPEEDI (58-
3029) (112-86-3,249) of SHAMROCKS.  JAKUCHU ITO devastated SPEEDI in a popular 1
minute one-sided Challenge contest.  Well, that's a step in the right direction.

Just two TV challenges went through this turn:
    NUMBERED WON (18-7434) (30-33-0,155) of NEXT GENERATION TV challenged TOLAIS
DEEPHEART (42-1620) (97-106-0,194) of DELVERS.  NUMBERED WON was bested by TOLAIS
DEEPHEART in a 2 minute Challenge fight.  Going for skills I'm sure.
     WIGGLER (18-8088) (21-6-1,99) of THUNDR + LITENING TV challenged BRADEN (6-4867)
(60-100-1,49) of THE LADY'S LIST.  WIGGLER devastated BRADEN in a 1 minute one-sided
Challenge duel.

Wasteland II avoided Thunder + Litening.  Okay.  I might do the same if I were a team
like that.

Our most challenged warrior was Tornado.  CHIEF STORMCLOUD (51-4306) (32-11-1,191) of
RAINDANCE challenged TORNADO (6-2249) (35-52-2,192) of ACTS OF NATURE.  You could
make a play on words out of that--storm cloud, tornado.  But I'll spare you since I'm
tired. CHIEF STORMCLOUD was demolished by TORNADO in a 1 minute Challenge
competition.

A seer predicted that if nobody was killed in the arena this turn, it would rain.
MUCKER (42-3596) (62-70-1,205) of DELVERS fought PEGASUS (6-4161) (29-40-1,156) of
KREWE OF DRUID.  MUCKER executed PEGASUS in a popular 1 minute uneven duel.  But it
rained anyway.

How about that!  You don't expect an overall popularity leader to ever be on the
winning side of the word "outwaited."  And yet, CRACK IS CHEAP (82-18422) (28-14-
0,175) of NEGATIVE CASH FLOW fought LINK (6-5144) (29-54-2,148) of SUPER BASH
BROTHERS.  CRACK IS CHEAP outwaited LINK in an action packed 7 minute gory bout.
Must have outwaited him in a very unexpected way, by standing on his hands perhaps.
I wouldn't know; I had stepped out for a break.  Actually I was told that he mimed
what Link was doing--staggering around and so on.  The audience liked seeing every
action echoed.  Link, I understand, was seriously pissed off.

And this turn's favorite was Bass, but it wasn't a scum sympathy vote.  BASS (5-3666)
(62-101-2,216) of JOHNS fought ONE A DAY (98-799) (28-23-3,209) of MY DRUGS.  BASS
was unbelievably bested by ONE A DAY in an exciting 5 minute bloody fray.

There was a try at the endurance record.  MUMPHY CHICK (1-5487) (26-1-0,165) of
LEGENDS OF STEELE challenged RED FUSION (6-5480) (32-7-0,123) of IT'S NEW!.  MUMPHY
CHICK viciously subdued RED FUSION in a slow 1070 minute Challenge competition.
Almost eighteen hours, not a record by any means but a good try.  Of course the crowd 
wasn't very pleased and there were things thrown.  The worst was a diaper.  Well
filled.

That's all.  I want to go to bed now.  See you in fourteen!
