                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

     And once again I, Scum #1, rise to the top.  It's been two or three years since
I last sat on top but hopefully I will stay up here for a while.  Five turns would be
nice at least.  Then I'd have a winning record.  Must thank Earth Elemental for his
fine challenge.  Normally I fear warriors in leather armor, but he didn't even hit
me, although he did break two of my shields.  Blame the elves for that.  Always
buying cheap used armor and weapons for the mere human.  For those who care I'm
challenging Balclutha and Fengar II in some vain effort to protect Belgoraoth from
getting himself run through.  Best of luck + learns to all!!

                                        Scum #1

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     All right, all right, you want a spy report.  I could have given you Snide 
Clemens, so you'd better appreciate this.  It has NOT been a fun week, and I don't 
care who knows it!  Forty-five fights is too many to watch on a hot day like this, 
and if you think I'm going to TALK about them all, you've got another think coming!  
Or, as the louts in the top row say, "Fat chance!"
     Only sixteen challenge matches, which is piffling.  No tv challenges.  No 
deaths.  I would've enjoyed seeing someone die today.  Why aren't you killing each 
other?  What's the point of immortality if you don't die from time to time?
     Royal Flush was avoided by Andorian Knights.
     Kyra got the most challenges.
     Big deal.

     SCUM #1 (50-2743) (49-53-0,237) of DARK SIDHE challenged BALCLUTHA (14-3169) 
(29-35-1,237) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  Straight across.  SCUM #1 bested BALCLUTHA in a 
crowd pleasing 5 minute gruesome Challenge Title fight.  Grue is good.  We need lots 
of grue out there.
     KALANDRA (50-2443) (59-57-3,225) of DARK SIDHE challenged BEAUTY QUEEN (47-3352) 
(38-38-3,234) of ROYAL FLUSH.  Up 9.  KALANDRA demolished BEAUTY QUEEN in a popular 1 
minute one-sided Challenge melee.  Demolishing beauty is good.  We don't need 
beautiful gladiators.  What'd be the point?  They spend all their time staring into 
mirror-polished shields.
     HANNYA (73-4350) (28-10-1,198) of BLOOD LUST challenged JUAN (41-2304) (28-18-
0,199) of DREAM TEAMS.  Up 1.  HANNYA vanquished JUAN in a popular 1 minute gory 
mismatched Challenge brawl.  Ah, gore.  Great stuff, gore.  I like to see it, the 
fans like to see it, it annoys the maintenance crew--all is good.
     KING FORADAY (47-3762) (42-40-4,174) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged MIRTA (51-4033) 
(48-28-1,175) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 1.  KING FORADAY was savagely defeated by MIRTA in 
a 2 minute Challenge competition.  Damn straigh!  Down with kings.  Unless they're 
me.
     R'SHANN (20-577) (54-44-3,179) of OVERLORDS challenged SIR PLUS (10-4316) (32-
26-1,205) of SIR AGLIO.  Up 26.  R'SHANN defeated SIR PLUS in a 2 minute Challenge 
struggle.  Naturally.  How could R'Shann be an OVER-lord if he didn't win?  If he 
lost, he'd be an UNDER-lord.
     SPLIT (78-2347) (24-14-0,108) of PBA challenged DOLLFACE (39-2372) (59-79-1,122) 
of DRINKING BUDDIES.  Up 14.  SPLIT was beaten by DOLLFACE in a crowd pleasing 5 
minute Challenge brawl.  Ah, one for the drunks.  That pleases the crowd, too.  They 
like to see drunks win fights, because it let's 'em claim there's nothing wrong with 
THEIR drinking.  Idiots, but then, we knew this.
     PIXIE BLIGHT (73-4427) (18-14-0,103) of DARQUE FORCES VIII challenged CARLA (39-
2428) (60-75-2,161) of DRINKING BUDDIES.  Up 58.  PIXIE BLIGHT was overpowered by 
CARLA in a 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.  An insane challenge, but pixies are like 
that, whether blighted or not.
     BURGER KING (47-4152) (30-27-2,131) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged ZEBRA HAMMER (39-
3170) (22-8-0,135) of JUNGLE HAMMERZ.  Up 4.  BURGER KING viciously subdued ZEBRA 
HAMMER in an action packed 2 minute Challenge duel.  Drat.  I don't want to see kings 
win fights.  Although since he beat a zebra, it might be okay.  This time.
     300 (78-2346) (21-16-0,127) of PBA challenged JACK SPRAT (47-2954) (49-56-4,136) 
of ROYAL FLUSH.  Up 9.  300 won victory over JACK SPRAT in a popular 2 minute gory 
Challenge duel.  I don't know why this was popular with the crowd, unless the 
audience was packed with Fat-Lovers Anonymous.  Which it might have been.  They ooze 
in everywhere.
     SIR YDER (31-4353) (26-10-0,137) of WILLBENDERS challenged KYRA (51-3774) (41-
46-1,145) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 8.  SIR YDER overpowered KYRA in a 1 minute one-sided 
Challenge melee.  An incident that is sure to tweak Kyra's temper, but so what?  
Women don't belong in the arena.
     MATADOR (11-4139) (44-33-2,100) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS challenged EGAN FORN (39-
3295) (24-36-0,61) of THE MIDDLE WAY.  Down 39.  MATADOR savagely defeated EGAN FORN 
in a exciting 1 minute bloody Challenge match.
     PINE (78-2350) (22-9-1,59) of TREE PEOPLE challenged EGOTISTIC DUKE (28-2779) 
(20-14-1,63) of ABYSMAL BEHAVIORS.  Up 4.  PINE was viciously subdued by EGOTISTIC 
DUKE in an exciting 2 minute Challenge contest.  Hey, where'd you think the Duke got 
his ego from?  The guy is good.  And if you've got it, flaunt it, right?
     BOX ELDER (78-2272) (17-4-0,55) of TREE PEOPLE challenged RANDOM MATCHUP (96-
1048) (9-7-3,39) of OVERRATED.  Down 16.  BOX ELDER was unbelievably bested by RANDOM 
MATCHUP in a 3 minute Challenge bout.  And who's over-rated here, eh?
     PROOKIE (78-2345) (22-13-1,70) of PBA challenged DANNIA TYL SIO (52-3393) (34-
24-1,78) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 8.  PROOKIE was defeated by DANNIA TYL SIO in a 2 
minute Challenge duel.  Let the damned Adantri beat each other up and bad cess to 
'em, is what I say.  Besides, who can believe in a warrior named "Prookie"?
     GUTTERBALL (78-2344) (20-16-1,80) of PBA challenged DEBBIE DAHMER (45-3579) (25-
8-1,91) of MORDRED'S MADMEN.  Up 11.  GUTTERBALL was overpowered by DEBBIE DAHMER in 
a 1 minute uneven Challenge struggle.  Nothing like madness to give you an edge, eh 
Debbie?
     BLANK (78-2374) (15-8-2,55) of TREE PEOPLE challenged MAPPATES HAMMER (33-5597) 
(15-11-2,57) of MILCHAMAH HAMMERZ.  Up 2.  BLANK was overpowered by MAPPATES HAMMER 
in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  Who'd name a warrior "Blank"?  That's 
prejudicial to his/her/its future success.  It implies a lack of faith.

THE DEAD                    W   L  K TEAM NAME              SLAIN BY              TURN

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Scum #1 -- Congrats.  Earth Elemental thought he had enough parry to handle you.
Guess not. -- The Icelord

High Lord Bosk -- Salute, warrior.  Was great to see Rush and swill a few ales with
you, my brother. -- The Icelord (if anyone has a chance to catch Rush on this, their
30th anniversary tour, I recommend you do so.  Bosk and I caught them in Dallas and
they were awesome.)

Gladiatorial Commission -- I notice Bosk's team, The Stormbringers, are listed as
"The Stormbrin."  Can their entire name be spelled out?  Thanks. -- The Icelord

     Unfortunately, the space in the newsletter for the team name is not as long in
     an AD arena as it is in the regular arena, at least for the first listed team
     for each manager.  Quite a lot of team names suffer from that at one time or
     another. -- Ed.

Crysalis -- I suggest we throw a little party on turn #150. How about a little
"Crysalis Craziness?"  I vote for ALL warriors to fight bare-handed on turn #150.
What do you all think?  Sure, AB's would have an advantage but nothing wrong with a
little knuckles in the nose to liven things up!  Who would be willing to have a one
turn bare-handed brawl?? -- The Icelord

Goat -- Neither you, nor any of your pathetic allies have ever been able to put a
"spanking" on anyone, let alone The COL.  Crysalis should be spared from your asinine
blather.  Be silent. -- Lord Protector Krac D'Chevaliers

Hammer -- How are you doing, my old friend?  I no longer answer to Bossman unless
someone is looking to pay out some cash.  I still make folks mad.  Just like old
times. -- AK47 (saluting his mentor)

Andorian Knight Stable -- All five fights were won.  First time ever since I sent you
five to advance Duelmasters.  Just don't stand there.  Go win me five more. -- AK47
(had to check fight report twice to make sure)

Crip -- Don't make me out to be the bad guy.  It was Kitala the Bold who insulted all
Andorians in public.  Did she not get on her knees and beg for this feud to be put
onto her head and the heads of her stablemates?  Have she confessed her sin and asked
to be forgiven?  I say unto you she has not.  Our wrath will be poured out onto her
and her friends who delight in their rudeness. -- AK47 (about to pass out collection
plates)

Icelord -- How about turn 150 we all send our gladiators to battle with no weapons,
armor or shield.  Let them wear nothing but smiles. -- AK47 (hearing from Matador how
much Egan Forn likes to fight naked men)

Tashia -- I am no longer worst gladiator from Aruak City.  You are! -- Stonewall (who
would rather be lucky than good any day)

The Icelord -- Seems last turn turned back in your favour.  Way to save face!  And
while I've done some odd things to spruce up ceremonial turns in the past, I don't
see having the time for this one. -- Crip

The Shadows -- While not officially sanctioned as any type of arena, all managers
except AK47 seem to challenge in search of challenging wins up the rankings, or at
least they have been. -- Crip, mgr. of Royal Flush

Pat -- Aren't you the subject of an old SNL skit? -- Beauty Queen, sans doute

Fengar II & Tempus -- Two wins for the Icelord, but only a 1-0 tally between the
Guard and the Flush. -- King Uvdahell & Burger King

Sir Plus -- I'm hoping that train pushes me up to the next level. -- Dairy Queen

Balclutha -- Darn knockdowns.  Would like to see a fight where everyone stays on
their feet to the end. -- Jack Valtraeds

Leviticus -- Are you sure you couldn't find and older fogie to challenge? -- Jack
Sprat

Kitala The Way too Quick for Me -- Even my armourer wasn't pleased with those
results. -- King Foraday

Carla -- Since when did you push your way up to the upper ranks?  I must have been
sleeping. -- Fighter Ace

Sir Yder -- Welcome to the mid to upper end of ADM, big boy!  Not too many around
here will actually look up to you. -- Disco Queen

AK47 -- I try not to write p-ads when I'm not fighting, but in this case, I'm gonna
make an exception.  You've been warned about the wimpishly cowardly tactics.  It's
your choice in how you respond.  Take it kindly, or not.  Personally I try to be
friendly these days, but...if you keep at it, you'll find it not so personably kind.
Your choice. -- Baphomet

Crip -- Friend, when you take a stand, you *REALLY TAKE A STAND* don'tcha?  Just
remind men not to do anything to bunch up your boxers, okay? -- Baphomet

Leeta -- As always, our highest regards to you. -- Baphomet

R'Shann -- You really should wear a helm if you're not going to protect your head.
Now look at the mess I'm in! -- Belgoroth

Bluegill Hammer -- Five skills must be nice! -- Sinyamegil

Rirorni Captain of team #(1) -- Never seen one of you learn a skill before? --
Kalandra

12 July 2004
All Readers -- Due to the pressures resulting from preparing for and dealing with the
Face to Face, no spotlights will be written until it's over. -- the Scribe

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.

If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!
