                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

Greetings warriors of Crysalis!

I figured I would continue the trend of writing a column that Crip and Slugbait have
recently reintroduced to the people of Crysalis.  I think that it is a wonderful
trend.

I have cause for celebration this cycle since I am the first warrior from Master
Darque's stables to achieve an ADM throne!  I feel that it is quite fitting since I
am also Master Darque's favorite gladiator (he won't tell you that, but I know it to
be true).  I also, along with my twin brother Tyre, serve as Master Darque's personal
body guard and go with him on all of his adventures.

If the information is to be believed, I will be leaving Crysalis and heading to
Primus (to be read--RETIREMENT).  I guess I ascended to the Tower Guardian chair just
in time since a tourney is fast approaching.

I think it is appropriate to give just a brief history of my short career.  I began
my career 15-6-6-15-21-10-11 with Great Damage.  As my career progressed I found that
I had a knack for picking up Decise tricks I gleaned from others and I just love the
feel of a Battle Axe in my hand.  I hail from the glorious city of Chimlevtal.  While
in my home city, I attained an Initiates Tourney Runner-Up and of course the elusive
Duelmaster Throne.  I left my city with a 16-7-2 record.  I picked up a second TV in
ADM, but have learned on this long gladiator road that I am not much for the
tournament format.  I think it is the blunted weapons.  I bounced around the ADM
arenas for a time, never truly fitting in at Free Blades or Talahya.  I did however
find a home here in Crysalis.  In fact, I may just retire here instead of packing up
and heading to Primus, or I may help Darque to train his new recruits in my homeland
Chimlevtal.  I'm undecided at the moment.

I will be challenging and avoiding this turn, but it typically does little good for
me.  We will see if I have what it takes to defend this vaulted seat!

Your Tower Guardian,

Sidon

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     You do yourselves proud, Crysalis!  Only Talahya and Primus have more fights
this time around, not even Free Blades is matching this number.  Two days from now,
who knows, but last time, puny.
     And how many fights is "more than the regionals"?  Forty-three, and only one
involving a standby.  No deaths.  Thirteen challenges, one of them a TV challenge.
The longest fight was twenty-one minutes, which is respectable.  Remember, this is
the slow arena, we can handle a slow fight or two here.
     Sidon got the most challenges, very good.  Yes, I know, he wanted to issue his
own, but being the Top Dog means you have a target painted on your armor.  Andorian
Knights got the most avoids, and more of them came from the Flower Girls than anyone
else.

     So... the fights:
     SIPPYCUP SAM (14-4280) (17-13-3,67) of PLAYPEN fought TINY TIM (60-6042) (20-6-
1,89) of CRAZY CREEPS.  SIPPYCUP SAM was overcome by TINY TIM in an exciting 6 minute
brutal bout.  That has to be embarrassing.  A brutal loss to a ukelele player?  Gods.
     LADY CONSOLACION (28-3703) (22-29-2,41) of FILIPINA LADYZ fought FROSTFLARE (45-
4112) (18-16-1,58) of NORTHERN LIGHTS.  LADY CONSOLACION was vanquished by FROSTFLARE
in a 1 minute one-sided match.  Be sure and get those chillblains treated right away,
Lady.
     CANADIAN MIST (50-1136) (35-23-2,89) of CANADIAN CLUB fought WHITE SETTLER (47-
5322) (23-12-1,84) of NATURAL B. KILLERS 2.  CANADIAN MIST handily defeated WHITE
SETTLER in a 1 minute mismatched bout.  It's the gin, downfall of many white
settlers.  When it isn't rum.
     LOSING IS FUN (12-6330) (19-12-0,69) of WHO DA MAN? fought LADY DOMINGA (28-
3702) (17-34-0,49) of FILIPINA LADYZ.  LOSING IS FUN demolished LADY DOMINGA in a
popular 1 minute gory uneven fight.  I hope you can refute this base canard, Lady,
and assure us all that losing is NOT fun.  What an awful thought!
     ELLITA FESS (50-3392) (32-34-1,78) of MIDDLE WAY 6 fought CAPTURED PIRATE KING
(106-2) (0-0-0,30) of the College of Mimes.  ELLITA FESS handily defeated CAPTURED
PIRATE KING in a 1 minute one-sided conflict.  The only standby, and he loses.  Well,
good.  Serves him right.

     HARI-KARI (73-3049) (11-4-0,71) of WAY TO GO! II fought LITTLE DEVIL (14-4359)
(17-13-0,65) of PLAYPEN.  HARI-KARI overpowered LITTLE DEVIL in a crowd pleasing 1
minute one-sided brawl.  Does this mean that Hari has decided someone ELSE should be
the one to go?
     BLUE BLOOD (73-3657) (13-9-1,64) of BLACK & BLUE fought SUNFLASH (45-3474) (31-
45-1,56) of NORTHERN LIGHTS.  BLUE BLOOD savagely defeated SUNFLASH in an action
packed 1 minute bloody conflict.  Too bad, Sunflash, but your natural mediocrity
might be showing.
     FENDER GRALE (50-3389) (22-39-2,83) of MIDDLE WAY 6 fought ROXANNE DE'MORRE (50-
3449) (23-19-0,68) of DRUID'S GROVE.  FENDER GRALE lost to ROXANNE DE'MORRE in a 2
minute struggle.  A home-town match of the more embarrassing sort.
     UNCERTAIN OMELET (47-3786) (17-8-0,98) of MYSTIC ORC FEAST fought MOSGIEL (14-
3836) (24-10-1,89) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  UNCERTAIN OMELET vanquished MOSGIEL in an
exciting 2 minute gruesome one-sided match.  Ah, too bad, Mosgiel, but those omlets
are tricky.  They team up with Sally Monnella, and then... whammo.
     CUBA (26-3917) (21-8-0,100) of HERE TO PHOENIX fought LEVIATHAN OF LARD (47-
5113) (18-5-2,61) of MYSTIC ORC FEAST.  CUBA was overpowered by LEVIATHAN OF LARD in
a 1 minute one-sided competition.  Really messy.  They couldn't even hang onto Cuba
in the Infirmary, he was too greasy.

     SHARD (45-3507) (27-39-1,120) of NORTHERN LIGHTS fought GENERAL PUBLIC (31-3112)
(18-17-1,97) of MILITARY MAYHEM.  SHARD was viciously subdued by GENERAL PUBLIC in a
popular 2 minute gruesome bout.  Public Opinion can be a powerful force, can't it,
Shard?  Not something you can fight in a couple of minutes.
     HUNGRY BONES (31-4720) (19-11-1,136) of UNFIT TO BE ORCS fought SNOWFALL (45-
3473) (44-32-0,140) of NORTHERN LIGHTS.  HUNGRY BONES demolished SNOWFALL in a 1
minute one-sided conflict.  When you're hungry enough to eat snow, you're sliding
down into disaster.  Lowers the body's core temperature or something like that.  Very
bad.
     WRETCHEDMISERY (33-7255) (32-21-0,175) of CHAOTICDISORDER fought BABY DUCK (50-
1984) (26-16-0,136) of CANADIAN CLUB.  WRETCHEDMISERY handily defeated BABY DUCK in a
1 minute one-sided fight.  So, does this duck think it will grow up to be a swan, and
it's wretchedly miserable because there is, so far, no sign of swandom?  Or is it the
looming specter of the roasting pan?
     TEMUJIN (65-3796) (31-11-0,163) of SPLIT INFINITY 2 fought TAOS (26-4042) (19-
11-1,118) of HERE TO PHOENIX.  TEMUJIN savagely defeated TAOS in a crowd pleasing 6
minute brutal match.  Taos (does NOT rhyme with chaos) was split from here to Phoenix
and BACK AGAIN.  Totally split.
     GILIA HARN (50-3391) (33-34-0,163) of MIDDLE WAY 6 fought BEARNICE (47-2847)
(27-34-7,180) of THE BEAR'S PAW.  GILIA HARN devastated BEARNICE in a crowd pleasing
1 minute one-sided duel.  How strange.  This is not the behavior we have come to
expect from the Middle Way.

     BALCLUTHA (14-3169) (30-39-1,203) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS fought RAUNI (31-5035)
(35-24-0,179) of SOL INVICTUS.  BALCLUTHA savagely defeated RAUNI in an action packed
2 minute brutal bout.  This pair, I don't know about.  Savage and brutal.  Makes you
wonder if you WANT to know them.
     CANADA COOLER (50-1904) (26-24-0,190) of CANADIAN CLUB fought WHEEL OF FORTUNE
(25-2529) (47-43-2,174) of DUELING FOR DOLLARS.  CANADA COOLER was demolished by
WHEEL OF FORTUNE in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  If the Cooler is that cold front
that hit us a little over a month ago, I'm GLAD to see it demolished.  Talk about
brutality!
     DUNEDIN (14-3703) (31-43-0,208) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS fought SOUL SCOURGE (59-
2589) (29-11-0,161) of VILE REAVERS.  DUNEDIN was outwaited by SOUL SCOURGE in a
popular 7 minute brutal fray.  And the message here is?
     WEINERMUN (37-2635) (56-48-3,206) of ALL THE MUN'S MEN fought KING UVDAHELL (47-
1643) (47-25-1,193) of ROYAL FLUSH.  WEINERMUN was beaten by KING UVDAHELL in a
popular 1 minute fight.  Well, Weinermun, you should have known to run when he came
at you with mustard in one hand and a bun in the other.  Significant clue there.
     THE WHEAT KING (58-5407) (71-57-2,195) of AUTUMN LIGHTNING fought PHILLIP THE
BIRD (40-3708) (16-8-1,166) of CRUEL PET NAMES.  THE WHEAT KING overcame PHILLIP THE
BIRD in a crowd pleasing 4 minute gruesome bout.  Good.  Phillip is a RUDE bird and
doubtless had it coming.

     LITTLE SIR GRUNGE (25-948) (76-62-4,195) of CRYPTICS fought BEAR ACUDA (47-4995)
(27-20-1,175) of THE BEAR'S PAW.  LITTLE SIR GRUNGE won victory over BEAR ACUDA in a
popular 2 minute fray.  Bear, if Little told you he's met more dangerous foes in the
bathtub, DON'T YOU BELIEVE HIM.  Little never goes NEAR a bathtub.
     BOARISH YELTSIN (5-3109) (62-43-2,268) of PARTY ANIMALS fought SODOM (31-4368)
(32-16-1,200) of DARQUE FORCES.  BOARISH YELTSIN overpowered SODOM in an exciting 1
minute uneven match.  You look at the numbers offered here, and you wonder, "This is
uneven?"  It's such a mild word.
     PAT (35-2292) (40-43-2,221) of COMMON JOE'S fought KING FORADAY (47-3762) (54-
47-4,183) of ROYAL FLUSH.  PAT vanquished KING FORADAY in an action packed 1 minute
gory one-sided match.  Ah, did Mike help, or just jump up and down in the stands
(he'll get a bill for that cracked bracing) and shout encouragement?
     PRINCE APPLE (47-325) (101-69-2,386) of ROYAL FLUSH fought SAMPSA (31-4233) (34-
43-4,198) of SOL INVICTUS.  PRINCE APPLE overpowered SAMPSA in a popular 1 minute
one-sided match.  Tell me, is this Prince Apple any relation to King Crab?
     JACK VALTRAEDS (47-407) (105-66-2,256) of ROYAL FLUSH fought AMPLITUR (65-6440)
(22-5-1,201) of DARK TOADS.  JACK VALTRAEDS was overpowered by AMPLITUR in an action
packed 2 minute uneven fray.  Whoa!  Talk about your upset victory, I bet there are a
few people upset over this one, and I don't mean the bookies (they're always upset).

     MAD CAT (7-2965) (52-35-6,485) of INSP GADGETS MINIONS fought AGLIBOL (12-5848)
(38-29-1,190) of DARKMOON.  MAD CAT devastated AGLIBOL in an action packed 1 minute
brutal one-sided bout.  I don't blame Aglibol for clearing out.  A mad cat is a
fearsome thing.
     WHACKING WILLOW (52-3167) (39-10-1,221) of FLOWER GIRLS fought SPATHA (31-4996)
(38-31-2,194) of SOL INVICTUS.  WHACKING WILLOW overpowered SPATHA in a crowd
pleasing 5 minute one-sided match.  Ah... I don't think I'm going to touch this one.
     RAVISHING REDBUD (52-3197) (33-11-0,212) of FLOWER GIRLS fought NEWT GINGRICH
(5-3399) (81-27-0,194) of PARTY ANIMALS.  RAVISHING REDBUD was savagely defeated by
NEWT GINGRICH in an exciting 2 minute bout.  Is it now Ravished Redbud?
     CRUMBSNATCHER (72-1842) (47-29-1,303) of ONE GOOD DUDE fought *WINTER* (65-3644)
(30-29-1,182) of ANCIENT KNIGHTS.  CRUMBSNATCHER narrowly defeated *WINTER* in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute bloody brawl.  And it didn't hurt that we just had the
equinox here.
     FOUNTAIN TROLL (73-643) (80-26-2,313) of D.A. REJECTS fought ARTEMISIA (12-5096)
(45-45-0,198) of DARKMOON.  FOUNTAIN TROLL vanquished ARTEMISIA in an action packed 4
minute mismatched bout.  This Fountain Troll is obviously a damgerous dude.  Makes
you wonder about the fountain, doesn't it?

     The challenge matches:
     OOKAZI (59-2401) (19-7-1,58) of IMPROVED ILLUSION challenged HOLLAN INNIS (50-
3388) (29-31-0,91) of MIDDLE WAY 6.  Up 33.  OOKAZI was overpowered by HOLLAN INNIS
in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge conflict.  Not the outcome we look for.  Still, it
has the bookies running around screaming, and that is always a pleasant sight.
     TOM SAWYER (8-4281) (20-8-0,97) of SMITHSONIAN challenged URG GUTSPILLER (59-
2561) (23-11-1,96) of VILE REAVERS.  Down 1.  TOM SAWYER was viciously subdued by URG
GUTSPILLER in a 3 minute Challenge battle.  Now Tommy is painting the fence BY
HIMSELF.  Two coats.
     BLUE VELVET (11-6248) (26-10-0,137) of COLORIFIC challenged BALDER (28-3778)
(26-21-3,136) of VALHALLA.  Down 1.  BLUE VELVET subdued BALDER in a crowd pleasing 3
minute bloody Challenge match.  They do say that velvet, regardless of color, is very
soft, but this doesn't seem to bear that out.
     HOFFA WITH HAIR (59-2297) (22-2-0,134) of IMPROVED ILLUSION challenged QUEEN
AMAZONIA (12-4796) (46-68-1,141) of DARKMOON.  Up 7.  HOFFA WITH HAIR handily
defeated QUEEN AMAZONIA in a 1 minute Challenge bout.  She was shocked at the sight.
     LIONESS (33-7222) (19-3-0,108) of CAT IN A HAT challenged DEMONICHELLION (33-
7038) (28-27-2,117) of CHAOTICDISORDER.  Up 9.  LIONESS vanquished DEMONICHELLION in 
an exciting 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Dangerous creatuers, lionesses.
They bite.
     FIVE GOLDEN RINGS (16-4331) (35-7-0,167) of GOLDEN GLADIATORS challenged
CANNONBALL (72-5313) (24-25-1,175) of X-POSSE.  Up 8.  FIVE GOLDEN RINGS unbelievably
bested CANNONBALL in a 11 minute Challenge duel.  The second-longest fight.  Five
challenged Cannonball to blow smoke rings, and he couldn't.  At least, not five of
them.

     EVE (72-4596) (23-11-0,193) of DARQUE FORCES challenged BRIARTHORN (12-5671)
(41-34-2,201) of DARKMOON.  Up 8.  EVE overpowered BRIARTHORN in an action packed 1
minute uneven Challenge melee.  This sounds almost mythic.  Except that mythic
usually takes a little longer.
     TOADKILLER DOG (47-1103) (32-12-1,208) of WASTED SCUM challenged MORTICIAN (2-
3890) (74-19-1,222) of DARK TOADS.  Up 14.  TOADKILLER DOG was savagely defeated by
MORTICIAN in a 21 minute Challenge brawl.  This is the longest fight of the lot,
possibly because Mort kept trying to embalm the still-living--and fighting--Dog.
     RANDOM MATCHUP (96-1048) (29-13-4,207) of OVERRATED challenged JULIA (60-4651)
(38-44-0,221) of ROMPER ROOM.  Up 14.  RANDOM MATCHUP was viciously subdued by JULIA
in a popular 1 minute Challenge duel.  This is what you get when you go against your
name, Random.  Viciousness.
     BRAND (82-13289) (40-30-1,238) of TOADS OF AMBER III challenged MATADOR (11-
4139) (60-52-3,235) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS.  Down 3.  BRAND savagely defeated MATADOR in
a crowd pleasing 2 minute bloody Challenge duel.  No surprise, matadors are trained
on bulls, not toads.  It's a whole different anatomy.
     DUTCH TREAT (26-1841) (98-35-2,394) of WORLDWIDE GORE challenged GRINNON BEARIT
(47-2955) (41-28-3,200) of THE BEAR'S PAW.  Down 194.  DUTCH TREAT won victory over
GRINNON BEARIT in a 4 minute Challenge battle.  Not a surprise outcome.

     Our TV challenge, and congratulations to Abhorrence for having and using it:
ABHORRENCE (4-5568) (17-7-2,96) of GLOOM AND DOOM TV challenged SCORPIUS (45-3752)
(31-15-0,143) of KNIGHT BREED.  Up 47.  ABHORRENCE devastated SCORPIUS in a 1 minute
mismatched Challenge fight.  You can see how Ab came by that TV challenge, can't you?

     And for the title:  STIGMA OF STUPID (31-4948) (31-14-1,216) of UNFIT TO BE ORCS
challenged SIDON (31-3712) (43-27-2,250) of DARQUE FORCES.  Up 34.  STIGMA OF STUPID
was overpowered by SIDON in a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.  I fear that Stigma
demonstrated the justice of his name today.  But it was a bold attempt, and
congratulations go to both warriors.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Crysalis -- Seems we missed last turn because it took 8 days for the mail to get to
RSI.  Had it taken 7, everything would have been alright.  No new strategy sheets are
being sent in, so apologies in advance for any downchallenges that should happen to
occur because of our missing last turn -- Crip's Crap

Sin-Eater -- What?  Are we talking bulimia here?  Or what--regardless, I don't like
the idea at all. -- Shard, Pleasure-Eater

Baby Duck -- You'd be cute, if you weren't such a fine prospect for dinner.  Orange
sauce... maybe, or lemon.  I wonder about lemon, you know? -- Gilia Harn

Davey Boy Smith -- I don't know about "legends," but you're certainly fearsome
enough.  You just melt me. -- Snowfall

Sippycup Sam -- Oh, dear.  You really shouldn't put rum in that cup. -- Hollan Innis

Roxanne de'Morre -- May the snow-trolls eat you. -- Fender Grale
P.S.  They don't derive nourishment from eating people, as far as I can tell, but
they sure do enjoy it.

Abhorrence -- Somebody did a dirty trick on you.  How are you going to get a date,
eh? -- Ellita Fess

White Settler -- You again. -- Sunflash

And the Alastarian Deserter.  I hear he was trying to escape to Serevada, but
somebody caught him at the port. -- Frostflare

The Consortium Scribe -- As if!  That would mean a change. -- Shard, Jorja, and the
Middle Way
