                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

     A Tower Guardian Column?  It seems the reports have from here have been vacant
for a while.  It as certainly been a while since I reported in.
     Life is still great fun at The Flower Shoppe.  My backlog is long, and so are
most of the weapons brought to my room.  (giggle)  I do try to let some of the newer
girls have most of the action, but I find myself unwilling to pass up on the fun.
Ravishing Redbud and I often work together, and that is cool.  I love sandwiches!
     I have been working the tournaments of late, and my recent results at ADM have
been 5-3, 8-3, 7-3, and 5-3.  The TV was from The Winter Face in Tempe, so it is
still in effect.  That helps, as I can often get to pick my favorite clientelle.  Oh,
yeah!
     I think it was pretty neat that Devil's Advocate and I took 71 minutes before we
were done.  Wow!  That one wiped me out!  He can go and go and go.  I like that in a
man!  Oh, yeah!  I wonder if he is busy tonight?  (wink)
     Well, enough for now.  You know where to find me.  Come on over and let me show
you what I've got.  It is very nice, if I say so myself.  All of it.  (wink)
          Whacking Willow, Tower Guardian and Flower Girl Extraordinairre

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Bleh.  Don't know what I ate last night, but I won't eat it again if I see it
first.  Horrid night, morning not much better.  Still, someone made notes on the
fights, and I'll see what I can do with 'em.
     Numbskull had the biggest point gain at fifty-one.  Confession had the biggest
drop at twenty-five.  Tongue N Cheek was avoided by Flower Girls.  Avonside got the
most challenges.
     Thirty-three fights, which is respectable, especially with only one standby.
Seven challenge matches.

     CAJETAN (7-6036) (15-9-1,38) of SENTINELS fought KENYA (4-6484) (25-1-1,84) of
KIWI CONNECTION.  CAJETAN was savagely defeated by KENYA in an exciting 2 minute
gruesome struggle.  Cajetan now feels like Mt Kilimanjaro fell on him.  Maybe it did.
     QUEEN (75-3316) (15-4-1,50) of KIWI CONNECTIONS fought AMELIA (28-3417) (40-29-
1,90) of DODGE BULLETS.  QUEEN was defeated by AMELIA in an exciting 2 minute
struggle.  Is this any way to welcome a new arrival?
     WATERLOO (75-3317) (21-1-1,55) of KIWI CONNECTIONS fought LILAS KEELER (73-5840)
(19-11-1,60) of MIDDLE WAY 18.  WATERLOO demolished LILAS KEELER in a 1 minute uneven
contest.  Well, that's Waterloo for you.  Always demolishing expectations.
     QUITA REMMING (83-294) (16-15-0,52) of MIDDLE WAY 21 fought DOMJON (50-3554)
(28-40-3,67) of DRUID'S GROVE.  QUITA REMMING overpowered DOMJON in a 1 minute uneven
bout.  And now, we hope, Quita feels better about being here.
     ORRIE POLLAS (83-295) (16-16-2,53) of MIDDLE WAY 21 fought LORD EXETER (81-932)
(25-17-1,80) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  ORRIE POLLAS was overpowered by LORD EXETER in a 1
minute one-sided fight.  Good gods, does this mean that Orrie, and ordinary fellow if
I ever saw one, is secretly a dragon?

     GERRICK GRIMM (50-3530) (27-51-1,101) of DRUID'S GROVE fought MOSQUITO (5-5011)
(20-13-1,132) of BLOOD SUCKERS.  GERRICK GRIMM was vanquished by MOSQUITO in an
exciting 2 minute brutal one-sided fray.  You hang out in the woods, Garrick, and a
grove is simply a small woods, and the bugs will GET you.
     CONFESSION (83-47) (47-5-1,150) of OLDIES fought NUMBSKULL (52-2948) (13-5-
2,116) of OTTO'S PARTS.  CONFESSION was handily defeated by NUMBSKULL in a popular 2
minute one-sided duel.  The fight resulting in the most point movement.
     GABBER KNIGHT (77-2243) (12-1-0,158) of 500 BPM fought CRIMSON MIST (8-5047)
(33-25-1,108) of BLOOD RITES.  GABBER KNIGHT overpowered CRIMSON MIST in a 1 minute
one-sided fray.  An odd fight.  I'm not sure what to make of it.  Does it turn out
that C. Mist is a vampire?  Did Gabber have garlic on his breath?
     MISS ZING (8-824) (67-51-3,191) of LADIES IN WAITING fought STINGRAY (30-2264)
(34-32-0,174) of STEEL BLADES.  MISS ZING beat STINGRAY in an action packed 1 minute
duel.  Zinged him, in fact.
     BULL FROG (73-4547) (32-14-0,186) of THE BULLS fought KRONOS GRIMHOLT (7-6011)
(24-13-1,165) of SENTINELS.  BULL FROG was overpowered by KRONOS GRIMHOLT in a 2
minute gruesome one-sided bout.  Some people like frog legs for dinner.  I never
could see it myself, too hard to get ENOUGH, but... what do I know, eh?

     FIVE GOLDEN RINGS (16-4331) (41-13-0,206) of GOLDEN GLADIATORS fought EVALON
ELKHORN (50-3553) (33-35-3,154) of DRUID'S GROVE.  FIVE GOLDEN RINGS slimly won
victory over EVALON ELKHORN in a popular 5 minute match.  The finest, sweetest golden
onion rings you can ever hope to see.
     MAD CAT (7-2965) (70-51-6,200) of INSP GADGETS MINIONS fought GHOST DANCER (28-
3365) (48-38-0,177) of DODGE BULLETS.  MAD CAT overpowered GHOST DANCER in a popular
1 minute one-sided match.  Are we surprised?  Not much.  Quite a difference in
experience there.
     HUNTSMAN (7-5837) (35-19-0,193) of SENTINELS fought SITS ON HIS DUFF (73-1810)
(43-24-4,197) of THINGS GEORGE DOES.  HUNTSMAN was vanquished by SITS ON HIS DUFF in
a 1 minute mismatched fray.  Embarrassing.
     JIVE (25-624) (105-66-1,203) of CRYPTICS fought DEVIL'S ADVOCATE (68-4666) (31-
25-1,200) of BLOOD 4 THE MASSES.  JIVE was outwaited by DEVIL'S ADVOCATE in a popular
12 minute gruesome match.  Twelve minutes is nothing, when you come down to it.
     YOUNG JOAN (28-3534) (41-53-1,182) of DODGE BULLETS fought CLEVER (50-2192) (51-
29-2,191) of RANDOM BLADES.  YOUNG JOAN was beaten by CLEVER in a 2 minute fight.
I've heard this kind of thing happens.  Virtuous young woman, clever-tongued man...
you get the picture.

     WYNETT (30-2340) (46-41-2,193) of STEEL BLADES fought GODSMACK (82-48417) (26-
16-0,172) of TONGUE N CHEEK.  WYNETT overpowered GODSMACK in a crowd pleasing 1
minute mismatched conflict.  Quite right.  No one likes to see a god smacked around.
     U.S.S. ARIZONA (34-2643) (42-28-1,209) of D-DAY SQUAD fought DAIRY QUEEN (47-
2685) (97-49-3,180) of ROYAL FLUSH.  U.S.S. ARIZONA was subdued by DAIRY QUEEN in an
exciting 2 minute brutal bout.  It's the smooth texture of the ice cream, you know.
Trumps everything.
     PAUL (35-2349) (45-48-2,209) of COMMON JOE'S fought AMBER WOLFWALKER (106-11)
(0-0-0,220) of the College of Mimes and Little Old Women.  PAUL was devastated by
AMBER WOLFWALKER in a popular 1 minute brutal mismatched brawl.  Our only standby
fighting, and Paul LOST?  What was he THINKING?
     TAMMY FAYE (39-3520) (29-23-0,196) of WITLESS WONDERS fought MOSGIEL (14-3836)
(44-30-2,205) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  TAMMY FAYE was devastated by MOSGIEL in an
exciting 1 minute uneven duel.  Yes, well, wit can be useful at times.
     VIOLATOR (44-2122) (54-41-1,224) of DEMONIC FURY fought BEERVAHNA (60-4292) (37-
33-3,202) of INGRATE WHITE NORTH.  VIOLATOR was defeated by BEERVAHNA in a popular 1
minute duel.  Typical.

     ASHAR (30-1777) (54-45-3,268) of STEEL BLADES fought HARI-KARI (73-3049) (46-8-
0,208) of WAY TO GO! II.  ASHAR was overcome by HARI-KARI in a 2 minute conflict.
But not fatally.
     KING FORADAY (47-3762) (63-52-4,263) of ROYAL FLUSH fought KARATIA (73-3624)
(39-18-1,189) of KIWI CONNECTION.  KING FORADAY devastated KARATIA in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute gory one-sided battle.  Some people like minced kiwi.  It takes all
kinds.
     HAZE (82-49272) (29-17-0,218) of NORTHERN LIGHTS fought DISCO QUEEN (47-1992)
(62-27-2,231) of ROYAL FLUSH.  HAZE was subdued by DISCO QUEEN in a crowd pleasing 3
minute competition.  Nothing like those flashing mirrors to dispell a haze.
     LOOGIE CLAP (82-46049) (36-29-2,225) of TONGUE N CHEEK fought ROXANNE DE'MORRE
(50-3449) (48-48-0,188) of DRUID'S GROVE.  LOOGIE CLAP overpowered ROXANNE DE'MORRE
in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  Embarrassed her, no doubt.
     BLACK FLAG (82-46046) (47-36-4,262) of TONGUE N CHEEK fought SODIAC (7-1049)
(29-19-2,189) of SENTINELS.  BLACK FLAG vanquished SODIAC in an exciting 5 minute
gruesome one-sided fight.  I hear Sodiac is a sort of fizzy constellation.  True or
false?

The challenges:
     QUEEN (82-33307) (11-7-0,77) of DARK TOADS 05Q challenged CREDIT CARD (5-4052)
(21-12-0,83) of BLOOD SUCKERS.  Up 6.  QUEEN overpowered CREDIT CARD in a 1 minute
uneven Challenge melee.  Credit cards will do that.
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (17-16-0,36) of DRAGONBANE GUILD challenged KARIN LO (83-292)
(14-18-0,52) of MIDDLE WAY 21.  Up 16.  AZAGHAL beat KARIN LO in a crowd pleasing 1
minute Challenge brawl.  The crowd may have been pleased, but I noted that Karin had
an amazing scowl on her face.
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (17-14-1,96) of SENTINELS challenged SCUMMY BOY (73-3371) (19-
10-0,106) of THE FAMILY TREE.  Up 10.  OBROJOBO was defeated by SCUMMY BOY in a 1 
minute Challenge struggle.  Better drown your sorrows, Obrojobo.
     HAGAR BLUETOOTH (10-5850) (27-4-1,144) of VIKINGS challenged TUNDRA (45-4280)
(33-24-1,169) of ARCTIC WASTES.  Up 25.  HAGAR BLUETOOTH subdued TUNDRA in a crowd
pleasing 6 minute Challenge competition.  Naturally.  Vikings know what to do with
northern terrain.

     ANVIL IRONFIST (81-84) (39-15-0,208) of DRAGONBANE GUILD challenged TABBY (82-
29373) (25-10-0,215) of FELINES.  Up 7.  ANVIL IRONFIST was viciously subdued by
TABBY in a popular 3 minute Challenge contest.  Never get on the wrong side of a cat,
Anvil.  They don't fight fairly.
     RAVISHING REDBUD (52-3197) (45-18-0,235) of FLOWER GIRLS challenged AVONSIDE
(13-3927) (49-60-1,256) of KIWI CONNECTION.  Up 21.  RAVISHING REDBUD was viciously
subdued by AVONSIDE in a 3 minute Challenge match.  This was Avonside-the-most-
challenged who won.
     JAVELIN (82-33234) (20-7-0,211) of THE WEAPONS challenged CRUMBSNATCHER (72-
1842) (56-33-1,251) of ONE GOOD DUDE.  Up 40.  Insane.  JAVELIN devastated
CRUMBSNATCHER in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Though insane, it worked
well for the spear.

For the title:
     WHACKING WILLOW (52-3167) (52-19-1,267) of FLOWER GIRLS fought DUTCH TREAT (26-
1841) (130-38-2,352) of WORLDWIDE GORE.  Up 85, I think, or somewhere around that.

THE DEAD                   W   L  K TEAM NAME              SLAIN BY                  TURN

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Devil's Advocate -- I like a man who can go 71 minutes.  Didn't we have fun?!  What a
climactic ending!  (giggle) -- Whacking Willow

Mosgiel -- How come Willow gets the ones who can go long?  Four minutes?  Is that all
you can do?  Well, maybe you need some more practice?  I like to practice.  (wink)
Meet me at The Flower Shoppe.  Bring cash.  (grin) -- Ravishing Redbud

Attilla Keenblade -- It was MY day.  Kudos. -- China

Rama -- Thanks for being easy on me.  I can't believe they let me fight here.  Don't
tell The King, will you? -- Queen

Baerra -- Well, you certainly had a lot to tell.  Now I have some great gossip to
repeat at our weekly meeting at church. -- Confession

Gojiro -- A great match which luckily went my way.  Let's go have a beer. -- Javelin

Glad to see that Merced Mafia here.  Yes! -- The Consortium Publicist

Milwaukee is the place to be.  See you all there this Summer at The Face. -- The
Consortium Elders

Ketchum thinks HE had a strange day?  We had a strange day, too, so there!  We sat
down to write personals, and all the lights went off.  And they stayed off!  And no,
that was not because it was bedtime and Jorja wanted us to get some sleep before the
fights today.  Like she cares!  They went off everywhere around, as far as we could
see, all except the moon, which is full and will probably mean weirdness. -- Amelia
for the Dodge Bullets team and some Middle Way folks

Queen -- Welcome.  Lose to us. -- Amelia and company

Lord Exeter -- Ketchum had a point there, you know.  Why should it be "unbelievable"
that I won?  It was good, of course, but I had no problem believing it. -- Amelia

Black Flag -- I call that unnecessary. -- Young Joan

Chimborazo -- You're a viking?  How odd, I thought you were a kind of Mexican food
and I was all set to order. -- Ghost Dancer
P.S.  You sure you aren't a cousin to a chimichanga?

Kenya -- I don't think I like being on the Isle, you know?  All I've done since I got
here is LOSE.  This does not make me feel welcome. -- Karin Lo
P.S.  Plus, I ended up first in Talahya.  What's with that?  I came from a slow
arena, I should come here naturally.

Whkapapa -- Bleh. -- Quita Remming

Credit Card -- Nope, no way.  I cut those suckers up. -- Lilas Keeler
P.S.  I don't know if I'm going to be regular here or not.  I don't think even Jorja
knows for sure.  It's all very confusing.

Well, that was unexpected!  Being concerned that I might have not gotten turns in on
time, I requested that my warriors in 106 be run on maintenance for one turn.  Ooops.
I forgot to mention that I only wanted those few who had fought the previous turn.
Instead, when I opened the newsletter I saw that 32 fighters had entered the sands!
It was quite the turn, almost like getting a tournament in the mail.  Some of these
guys had not fought since the 1980s.  For some old strategies were resurrected, for
others... nothing.  So if you fought something or someone a bit unusual last turn,
know that it is because I apparently do not know how to frame a request properly!
Most will be returning to retirement. -- Nomad

Gabber Knight -- Oh, come on!  A plunger fighting barehanded?!  AND going 1-1-1?!  At
least if the boss is going to get me on the sands again he could do it properly! --
Everest

Waterloo -- And there goes the perfect record.  Ouch.  Nice run.  I was not one of
those returning retirees for whom Nomad failed to provide an adequate strategy. --
Guru Gnu

Tom Smith Disease -- I did it!  I won!  And the boss thought I'd never manage a win
here at the Isle!  Just imagine what would happen if I got a third rating! -- Stren-
Thion

Ghost Dancer -- I had been promised that I would remain retired with a winning
record.  So I sat back and relaxed.  I was out of my training routine.  I didn't
expect the fight.  I'm sure that was it. -- Chimborazo

Domjon -- Seriously?!  A lunger with a large shield.  Do you think maybe someone
misread (or miswrote) that?  And now I had to try and use it for a second time during
my surprise fight.  Yeah, lunging with a shield was a surprise. -- Chios

No armor, no weapons, no strategy to speak of.  No wonder I lost to a deserter! --
Dimetreas

Gerrick Grimm -- Look at me!  Back at .500!  Oh, sorry.  Maybe I shouldn't be
celebrating in front of you. -- Spirewolf
