MOM -- resetting the high scores

Does anyone know how to reset the Master of Magic Hall of Fame, short of uninstalling and reinstalling the game? I can't figure out where the thing is stored.

I noticed something interesting. There are ten Champions:

Mystic X
Aerie
Deth Stryke
Elana
Roland
Mortu
Alorra
Sir Harold
Ravashack
Warrax

And five colors of magic. It turns out that there are two champions per color, and you can only get champions as a function of which spell books you have. Mortu and Ravashack only appear if you have black. Elana and Roland require white. Warrax requires red. I'm pretty sure that Alorra requires green. I'm not totally sure about which colors the others are associated with, but I am sure that they have them.

I've been messing around with using Warrax as a board-clearer. Once he's up a couple of levels, and properly equipped, he can wipe out anything except that he's helpless against Sky Drakes.

UPDATE: I just did an experiment to check on this, and I was wrong. Mortu and Ravashack do require black, and Roland and Elana do require white, but the others don't align with any color.

1 I had never noticed that.  I would think I've experienced exceptions, but they may have occurred after finding an extra retort.

My favorites are Mystic X and Warrax.  Get them over 30 spell damage, and enjoy your curbstomp.

2 I tried one game where I paired those two and ran around the board with them, and it was indeed impressive -- except that they can't fight Sky Drakes. For those I used summoned Great Wyrms with Flight and Iron Skin.

The other thing I was doing was to run a mismatched pair. Ravashack and Mortu work really well, because they can even take Sky Drakes. It was fun; Ravashack was fast enough to outrun them, and they chased Ravashack and totally ignored Mortu, who killed two Sky Drakes per turn without taking any damage in exchange.

Elana and Roland were exactly the same.

But having Warrax and Mystic X both equipped with major staffs was fun, too. Walk into a battle, hit "auto", and watch them machine-gun the enemies. Pretty cool.
