I actually have something ready.  I was going to publish it after next 
issue, so as not to end Powernaut 2011 Part 2 with a big boring piece of 
text.  But if it helps, I can move it.

Commentary by Wyatt Ferguson...  Who'd Win #1!  Leo vs. SHAJAM


This comes down to the source of the SHAJAM powers: Salome, Herodias, 
Athaliah, Jezebel, Asherah, and the Medium of Endor. These are all 
documented in the Bible, so history knows their powers and weaknesses. 
Don't make me look up the references, or else I'll be preaching to you.

-    Salome, Herodias, Athaliah, and Jezebel were Israelite royalty. 
They made their living by influencing kings. But vampires could probably 
impress them, and warriors could overcome them.

-    Asherah was a goddess of the natives and the next nation over, so 
it was multi-cultural and tolerant to let her in. There was even a 
movement to let her marry Yahweh! (insert reference) Goddesses were 
immune to warriors, and they probably *sponsored* vampires, but kings 
could *and did* prohibit their worship.

-    The Medium (also known as The Witch) of Endor could summon 
frightful spirits, even to terrorize kings - and probably warriors and 
vampires too. But she in turn knew that kings could put her out of 
business. Now, what's the most terrifying spirit she could possibly 
summon? Probably the Spectral Torch - which is already working with her! 
Good luck summoning anything else on short notice.

So it really depends on who fights whom. The evil queens and princesses 
could neutralize kings. If Asherah and the Medium of Endor get going 
without a king to restrain them, and the others restrain any kings in 
the vicinity, watch out.
