                      Reflections by the Keeper of the Runeblade

     Again.  Here I am.  Oh dear.  With all of my experience, I probably should be in
Primus, although even now, I don't even have a winning record.  But if I went there,
I would spend the rest of my long, long life at the very bottom of the heap.  I SO
don't want to go there.
     I fought Zakau.  It was a random match.  If I had challenged, I would have gone
for Elayron, except, of course, he's inactive and can't be challenged.  Being the
Keeper of the Runeblade is an honor, truly, but it is one I no longer wish for.
     Oh well.  We don't always get what we want, do we?  I wish you all a grand
fortnight.  May you practice hard, raise your skills, and defeat me.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     (5-4087) (45-42-2,207) of JOHNS fought FATALITY (7-5820) (28-14-0,172) of BRUTAL
LEGION.  LENNON was demolished by FATALITY in a popular 1 minute one-sided melee.
Fatality is our top-ranked Striker.
     MARK (5-4088) (66-152-3,200) of JOHNS fought FERD THE TOWER (104-27) (120-15-
8,280) of ARENA STAND-INS.  MARK was vanquished by FERD THE TOWER in a popular 1
minute mismatched brawl.  Mark is our hottest Parry-Lunger, which I've been told is a
difficult style.
     MEN WORKING (38-4189) (77-238-1,182) of JUST BECAUSE fought TOLAIS DEEPHEART
(42-1620) (135-147-0,210) of HIGHLANDERS.  MEN WORKING was overpowered by TOLAIS
DEEPHEART in a 1 minute mismatched match.  Men Working is top Basher, while Ms.
Deepheart is our premier Wall of Steel and Overall Popularity Leader.
     ZAKAU (5-4623) (57-62-0,193) of JOHNS fought SOLACIA (104-24) (68-32-0,225) of
ARENA STAND-INS.  ZAKAU was vanquished by SOLACIA in a exciting 1 minute mismatched
fight.  Zakau is top Lunger, and Solacia isn't an easy opponent.
     JUSTIN (6-6179) (35-53-3,155) of THE LADY'S LIST fought ANGRY BOOKIE (104-11)
(15-10-0,150) of ARENA STAND-INS.  JUSTIN was bested by ANGRY BOOKIE in a popular 4
minute gruesome competition.  Justin was voted this turn's favorite fighter.
Probably because it's his birthday and he handed out cupcakes.

     SATCHEL (6-6215) (49-42-2,156) of THE LADY'S LIST fought PELIS THE TRUE (42-
3469) (40-55-0,142) of HIGHLANDERS.  SATCHEL was vanquished by PELIS THE TRUE in a
action packed 1 minute uneven duel.
     CLIVE (6-5215) (53-50-5,176) of THE LADY'S LIST fought SHADOWMANE (104-28) (0-0-
0,200) of ARENA STAND-INS.  CLIVE was defeated by SHADOWMANE in a action packed 3
minute gory duel.
     GAR & BRILL (38-4252) (90-161-1,146) of JUST BECAUSE fought ZEUS (62-4010) (33-
11-0,150) of LEGION OF LEGEND.  GAR & BRILL overpowered ZEUS in a popular 2 minute
gory uneven match.
     ZANE GREY (21-4810) (48-78-2,130) of AUTHORS fought M. CHARDINEE (104-8) (0-0-
0,110) of ARENA STAND-INS.  ZANE GREY was subdued by M. CHARDINEE in a crowd pleasing
4 minute bloody match.
     ALOYICIUS (6-5045) (29-56-2,111) of THE LADY'S LIST fought M. CHARDINEE (104-8)
(0-0-0,110) of ARENA STAND-INS.  ALOYICIUS was devastated by M. CHARDINEE in a 1
minute one-sided battle.

     HOFFA (5-4299) (23-85-0,107) of JOHNS fought DESIREE (104-23) (20-15-4,150) of
ARENA STAND-INS.  HOFFA was overpowered by DESIREE in a popular 1 minute mismatched
conflict.
     2 + 2 = 4 (38-4190) (56-159-1,93) of JUST BECAUSE fought KHALHUMS DWARF (104-10)
(0-0-0,150) of ARENA STAND-INS.  2 + 2 = 4 lost to KHALHUMS DWARF in a crowd pleasing
3 minute gruesome bout.  2 + 2 = 4 is our top Total Parry.
     HOFFA (5-4348) (21-152-0,59) of JOHNS fought PHILTHRY (42-2079) (36-35-0,84) of
HIGHLANDERS.  HOFFA viciously subdued PHILTHRY in a crowd pleasing 3 minute bloody
bout.
     HOFFA (5-4622) (44-75-0,40) of JOHNS fought COCKY SPECTATOR (104-3) (0-0-0,0) of
ARENA STAND-INS.  HOFFA was viciously subdued by COCKY SPECTATOR in a exciting 4
minute brutal fight.  This Hoffa has the distinction of being the only one listed on
both the popularity list and also the UNpopularity list.  Well done.

     It is sad to note that the arena stand-ins went 8-0 this turn.

     I'm off to see my young lady.  Back in fourteen!
