                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

     What does one say in a Tower Guardian's Column for an encore?  Heck if I know!
I'm just a fighter and a lover, and not necessarily in that order.  (chuckle)  I know
my xs and os of strategic combat and I know the REAL Xs and Os of life.  (wink)  Come
on over.  Try me out.  In the arena or , even better, in my luxurious and loving room
at The Flower Shoppe.  You will be mighty glad you did.  Oh, yeah!
     Since I am heading to the Orlando Face with some of my fellow Consortiumites, I
thought I might give a plug to my fellow Crysalis mates, and former Crysalis mates,
who are traveling with me.
Freshman:
     Confession
     Five Golden Rings
     Grinch
ADMers:
     Smithers
     Tiny Tim
Eligibles
     Queen
     Whacking Willow
Contenders
     Mortician
And in a surprise move, we have accepted Baron Cockroach, Land Shark, Touchstone, and
The Wyvern of Primus (and definitely not Crysalis leaning) to travel with us.  Who'd
have thought The Boss would have authorized that?!
     Hoping to see y'all soon....
          Wacking Willow XOXOXOXO

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Here we are, high summer, more fights, and I'm dripping sweat on this parchment
so fast it keeps blotting what I write.  So I'd better write fast, eh?
     Confession got the most points, 31, for defeating a Trash Can.
     Uncle Fester lost the most, 30, due to being defeated by a standby, Zorro, the
Gay Blade.  Pshah!
     Royal Flush were most avoided, with Sentinels doing most of the avoiding.
     Amelia got the most challenges.
     We had twenty-two fights, six challenges, one standby.  Not bad, even if it IS
tourney prep.  A pre-tourney fight is just as good as any other fight.

     DORSAL FINN (42-1662) (10-6-1,88) of NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC fought FRASIER (47-
6224) (19-14-0,71) of CHEERS.  DORSAL FINN handily defeated FRASIER in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute uneven duel.

(19-1-1,76) of I HATE THEM.  SKI MASK was overpowered by SLUGBAIT in an exciting 1
minute gory uneven fight.  I expect some comment on this one.  The Duck isn't one to
lose with dignified silence.
     BATWAMBA (21-7118) (21-33-0,35) of NOMADIC TRIBE fought LORD FOUL (59-1395) (18-

minute competition.

0,48) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES.  SMITHERS demolished GLACIER in an exciting 1 minute gory
one-sided bout.  Smithereens of ice?
     R BAGGIO (17-4867) (16-7-1,83) of ITALIAN FOOTBALL fought TEMPTRESS (47-6671)
(12-8-0,57) of LUROCIAN DEVILS.  R BAGGIO devastated TEMPTRESS in a 3 minute one-
sided fight.

(106-8) (0-0-0,110) of the College of Mimes.  UNCLE FESTER was overpowered by ZORRO,
THE GAY BLADE in a 1 minute mismatched brawl.  For shame, Uncle Fester!

     SLIPPERY NIPPLE (59-2323) (43-27-1,205) of HANGOVERS fought KRONOS GRIMHOLT (7-

1,161) of OLDIES.  TRASH CAN was luckily beaten by CONFESSION in a popular 5 minute
duel.  Was it luck, or... skill?

(52-62-0,166) of DODGE BULLETS.  ACE FREHLEY overpowered GHOST DANCER in a 1 minute
mismatched conflict.
     THE LION KING (47-6360) (30-10-0,194) of ROYAL FLUSH fought BALDASSARE (7-6003)
(34-30-0,201) of SENTINELS.  THE LION KING handily defeated BALDASSARE in an exciting
4 minute one-sided contest.

19-0,182) of DARK TOADS 05Q.  BULL DURHAM was handily defeated by QUEEN in an
exciting 1 minute one-sided bout.  Dark warts, eh?  Try not to leave them lying
around in the locker room, Bull.

LIVER in a 2 minute uneven duel.  Drinking too much?

(35-12-1,234) of CRAZY CREEPS.  THELONIUS viciously subdued TINY TIM in a popular 5

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Hey, I see some CC (Crip's Crap) here.  Is it The Return Of The Native? -- The
Consortium Publicist

Cannonball -- That was fun.  What I like best about you is the big cannon, but the
balls were cute, too. (wink and giggle) -- Wacking Willow, Chief Tower Guardian

Zorro, The Gay Blade -- That is just a lot disgusting to royalty such as me.  Hence,
I just felt the need to give you a lashing. -- Queen

R Baggio -- That wasn't fair, you know?  I thought you wanted to play REAL football.
-- Grinch

Ririni Soldier -- I appreciated the reprieve. -- Smithers

Lord Foul -- You really look good with all those warts all over you.  Har, har. --
Brock of Dark Toads

Looking forward to The Orlando Face.  I suspect we Consortiumites will be first
reading these results on Fri. eve in Orlando.  I hope we don't match up with Crip's
Crap much as they always seem to sprack the daylights out of us at Faces. -- The
Consortium Elders

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  And a song in your heart. -- The Consortium

Thelonius -- You've gotten better in our absence. -- African Queen

Kronos Grimholt -- You too?  And soon you'll actually be able to properly wield a
weapon.  What will we do then? -- London Quireboy

Uncle Fester -- You look like a good stout receiver. -- Bull Durham

Glacier -- That certainly wasn't a slow moving object coming at me. -- Lar'Eh Walker

Grinch -- Sorry to steal your Christmas Thunder, but it's not December anymore. -- R
Baggio

     Unfortunately.

Balliol Blackmoon -- It was an eclipse. -- Young Joan

Hagar Bluetooth -- I hope your tooth rots right out of your head. -- Amelia

Baldassare -- Yep, not the season, or the place, either, for ghosts.  Still, I do
what I can. -- Ghost Dancer
P.S.  Greywand has cold hands.

Lar'eh Walker -- Anyone can be icy if he gets far enough north.  Being icy at a low
latitude takes skill.  *I* can do that. -- Glacier
P.S.  I was NOT rude about polar ice.  It's fine, in its place.

Katana -- The difference in experience matters not in the least.  You mammals take
advantage, why should I not? -- Ski Mask, Founder and President of Ducks with Swords

Smithers -- Better my face than yours. -- Ski Mask, Founder and President of Ducks
with Swords
