                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

     Well, well, well, Hagar BlueTooth.  Or should I say Hagar Black and Blue Tooth?
It was a good fight but a mere 6 minutes.  Really not even worth my time.  Maybe I
should have challenged someone.  These random matchups are so tiring.
     Cannonball, I hope you fight since it looks like you will be the random matchup
that I am assigned to.  Unless Crip and Consortium stop cowering in fear and reactive
a couple of warriors.
     Your Random Guardian,
          Random Matchup

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     What, already time for another spy report?  Where does the time GO?
     Debby Tonte dropped by and told me that blood on a purple robe may stain.  From
which I draw the logical advice that you should not wear your purple robes into the
arena.
     Significant point movements:  K. Carson, up 32.  Dart, down 25.  Same fight.
     The Opera was avoided by most gladiators because, really, are gladiators the
kind of people who like Opera?  Officially, it was Battleaxe Stampede who did most of
the avoiding.  Grizz Grimhult got the most challenges.  He's making a collection.
     Seventeen fights, three challenges, two standbys.

     DART (8-4586) (25-18-1,71) of X-FORCE fought K. CARSON (8-3609) (11-4-0,37) of
SUPERIOR FORCES.  DART was handily defeated by K. CARSON in a 1 minute mismatched
bout.  Thus the point movements.
     BIKINI ATOLL (47-7799) (19-16-0,46) of NUKE TEST fought GRIZZ GRIMHULT (19-5083)
(12-1-1,73) of BATTLEAXE STAMPEDE.  BIKINI ATOLL unbelievably bested GRIZZ GRIMHULT
in a crowd pleasing 1 minute bout.  Apparently Grizz avoided all those challenges,
and good work, too.
     SKI MASK (58-5869) (70-116-1,55) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES fought YOURBAGD FOREVER
(47-6968) (4-2-0,63) of THE OPERA.  SKI MASK was handily defeated by YOURBAGD FOREVER
in a 1 minute one-sided conflict.  Are we surprised?
     G W BUSH (59-2764) (35-30-1,49) of TALL TALES fought RIRORNI SOLDIER (106-3) (0-
0-0,30) of Our Standard Standbys.  G W BUSH demolished RIRORNI SOLDIER in a popular 1 
minute mismatched match.  No more than we expected.  Or less, either.
     KING MIDAS (59-2770) (33-26-1,84) of TALL TALES fought PARNS (41-4707) (21-11-
2,76) of LAZY SUNDAY.  KING MIDAS devastated PARNS in a 1 minute mismatched conflict.
Some days, "lazy" doesn't pay.
     HOGSHEAD (74-4372) (18-10-1,56) of COUNTRY PIE fought JOHNNY APPLESEED (59-2767)
(23-42-0,30) of TALL TALES.  HOGSHEAD savagely defeated JOHNNY APPLESEED in an
exciting 9 minute brutal fight.  Hogs like apples.
     MY LITTLE GTO (47-7745) (21-13-0,93) of OBG! fought GOODY TWOSHOES (5-5328) (13-
1-1,71) of HISTORICAL KOLACT.  MY LITTLE GTO beat GOODY TWOSHOES in a 1 minute melee.
It's Goody's name.  Paints the picture of an easy win.

     HREIDMAR THE RED (10-6148) (23-10-0,93) of VIKINGS fought KAT (71-3531) (21-40-
2,65) of NIGHTHAWKS.  HREIDMAR THE RED won victory over KAT in a popular 1 minute
fight.  No purple robes here!
     TAMMY FAYE (39-3520) (37-65-0,143) of WITLESS WONDERS fought LEPER MESSIAH (72-
3954) (17-3-1,93) of DEADLY RAGE.  TAMMY FAYE vanquished LEPER MESSIAH in an action
packed 1 minute one-sided duel.  Not so witless after all, eh?
     AMELIA (28-3417) (54-65-1,167) of DODGE BULLETS fought UNCLE FESTER (59-2768)
(40-25-1,144) of TALL TALES.  AMELIA overcame UNCLE FESTER in an action packed 1
minute melee.  Not happy with Fester's advance, I see.
     LORD FOUL (59-1395) (29-38-2,154) of BLOODGUARD fought ARENAMASTER SANDAVOL
(106-28) (0-0-0,200) of Our Standard Standbys.  LORD FOUL was bested by ARENAMASTER
SANDAVOL in a popular 1 minute competition.  You don't want to know what Sandavol
said after that fight.
     YOUNG JOAN (28-3534) (54-90-1,188) of DODGE BULLETS fought HAGAR BLUETOOTH (10-
5850) (43-33-1,203) of VIKINGS.  YOUNG JOAN was vanquished by HAGAR BLUETOOTH in a 2
minute brutal mismatched fight.  Blue teeth do not move Joan.  Except into retreat.
     STIGMA OF STUPID (31-4948) (51-29-1,231) of UNFIT TO BE ORCS fought BALDASSARE
(7-6003) (43-41-0,195) of SENTINELS.  STIGMA OF STUPID overpowered BALDASSARE in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute mismatched match.  Stupidity can overpower just about
anybody.
     TOADKILLER DOG (47-1103) (53-20-1,297) of WASTED SCUM fought HUNTSMAN (7-5837)
(54-44-0,205) of SENTINELS.  TOADKILLER DOG viciously subdued HUNTSMAN in a 2 minute
gory contest.  Another case of "not a toad," followed by intense frustration.

The challenges:
     MINDQUAKE (72-5861) (24-22-0,100) of TWISTED SISTERS challenged GLACIER (58-
5887) (48-58-0,148) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES.  Up 48.  MINDQUAKE was demolished by
GLACIER in a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  A case of bad judgment, Mindquake.
Never tell a woman she looks ready to calve.
     ORPHAN (72-5463) (27-33-2,189) of X-POSSE challenged GHOST DANCER (28-3365) (58-
78-0,192) of DODGE BULLETS.  Up 3.  ORPHAN was vanquished by GHOST DANCER in a 1
minute uneven Challenge battle.  This one surprised me.

For the title:
     CANNONBALL (72-5313) (40-53-3,253) of X-POSSE challenged RANDOM MATCHUP (96-
1048) (42-19-4,258) of OVERRATED.  Up 5.  CANNONBALL was bested by RANDOM MATCHUP in
a 1 minute Challenge Title fight.  And the Random One remains our leading warrior.
Congratulations, sir.

     On behalf of the mailroom slaves, please, please, put your arena number on 
everything, including your personals and diplos!  
     All diplos must show the recipient's name, team name, and arena number.  
     Sometimes stuff gets misfiled, delayed, not printed, or not delivered because we 
don't know where it belongs.  Thank you.
