                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                          Reflections by the King's Sentinel

Considering the last time that I fought Warpath, I lost, I must say that the win last
turn was very sweet.  Not to mention, avenging the poor loss that Vision had to him.
I\'ll keep this column short and sweet just like the lady at the tavern last night
considering this is my first turn atop Andorak.  My challenge goes out to Tetriano.
Let\'s see what the low base warrior can do against a tourney lunger.

-Lucias Clay

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     This is a fine day, five inches of snow since midnight, about half the sky clear
and the color of fresh salmon, a LOT of fights here (very GOOD, managers and
gladiators!), and (so I thought) no pressure.  Then a runner comes running in (how
else would he arrive?) from the central Commission office and delivers a note to the
effect that they want this spy report VERY FAST so it can (possibly) mail out before
the end of the year.  So, short and sweet, sorry about that.

     The Exiled Ones were avoided by Kellumbo's Kids.  Doubtless other teams were
avoided, and other teams did some avoiding, but this attracted some kind of attention
in the office, so there it is.
     Stella Blue got the most challenges.
     And speaking of challenges, out of twenty-seven (beat THAT, Free Blades!) fights
involving a mere three standbys, eight were challenge matches.  Ha!  Are we doing
better and better here, or what?  Um, "what" probably being "tourney timing," but
we'll take it.

     Ah, and before I get into the swing of non-commenting the fights here, let me
thank those gladiators who so obviously READ my comments and replied in the
personals, PLUS a BIG thanks to Lucias Clay for the Sentinel's column.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

     These personals were misfiled in Mordant, for some reason.  They may have been
     meant for last turn. -- Ed.

Goku -- Sure seems like a coin flip when we fight.  I keep toying with strategy to
find some edge, but it sure seems back and forth to me. -- Vision

Where's My Tourney -- That loss is simply proof that one small error on the strategy
sheet can cause a loss.  Challenge me again, and taste a loss. -- Blind Girl

     With plenty of mustard.

Leadfoot -- Not even close.  Boy, it sure must have stung, especially on your
challenge. -- Grandpa Rat

Clemmie -- Let's try that again with a different weapon, and see if it makes any
difference. -- Nafisah

Darklock -- Good to have you in Andorak.  Hope you enjoy your time here. -- Detective
Kellumbo

Nafisah -- Hmm, I was THINKING about some sort of fish.  A kind of meatloaf of fish,
or fish patties, or something along that line.  With, as you suggested, lemon peel,

though I have some doubts about the honey.  An egg for binding and moister, and roll
them in corn meal. -- Clemmie
P.S.  Poppy seeds?  Hmm.  Sounds tricky.

     Even dubious.

Hero, Hero -- Listen, I TRIED that, but the whole sandwich fell apart.  Too much
bulk, not enough binding.  Sure, toothpicks will hold it together on the PLATE, but
how many people are going to want to BITE the toothpicks?  No, I just don't see the
"sandwich on an outsized bun" thing.  Pocket bread that BUTTONS SHUT, that's the
ticket. -- Loris Key

Oozing Orifices -- (recoiling in disgust) -- Sarina

Shinorr -- Damned monster. -- Go-Fer
P.S.  Having nine tentacles gives you an unfair advantage.

Baby -- Bland mush?  I'm sorry, but I just can't do that. -- Golderie

HAL, being the simple golem it is, doesn't know what to do with anything other than
