It seems the training can make the difference, as BEACH BABES is pushed out of top team by WASTELAND II, who came from 2nd with a 4-0-0 this turn. And let's see, MAJOR ANGER fought UMBRELLA MAN and gained 17 points and contributed to WASTELAND II's 4-0-0. UMBRELLA MAN has lost to MAJOR ANGER, falling 13 points, while helping make BEACH BABES a 1-4-0 turn. Defending his title for another turn, GOKU kept BONSUR's warrior, KUNG-FU MASTER, from claiming the throne. Can someone confirm a rumor for me? I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Dripping Blade until they win. Maybe? He who challenges well, fights well. He who avoids without cause, shall lose for good reasons. My mama told me that one. UNDER JOLLY ROGER has cause to stand tall, as they were BONSUR's most avoided team. A smart manager knows this is a team to beat. And avoiding UNDER JOLLY ROGER more than any other team we find WASTELAND II. BONSUR, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing? The most challenged warrior this turn was BEACH BABES' warrior UMBRELLA MAN. More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster! The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace. Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed. A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over. Consider well. Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe. Dare to fight bravely. Well, I'm burning daylight here in BONSUR and I've a long road ahead of me. Happy Trails.

Be careful who you offer green eggs to. To whom you offer green eggs. You know what I mean. The ham was bad enough, but never offer green eggs to a man with a hangover. -- Umbrella Man Hailstorm -- Darn. I should've brought a steel umbrella. Ouch. Etc. -- Laguna Lil P.S. And do NOT offer me your hand after chopping at mine for hours and hours and HOURS. P.P.S. Well, it FELT like hours. Wakko -- Aren't we all. Simply being out here on the sand with sharp pointy things.... (sigh) Sure insanity. No doubt about it. On the sand, we should have beach towels, a little beer, maybe a ukelele. -- Paulametta Mordant Deserter... hmm. Would YOU call it desertion? After all, Mordant doesn't have any beaches. -- Animas Playamate P.S. Not even a playa. Just (shudder) mud. Blipvert -- (uneasily) You're rather... tall for a golem, aren't you? I didn't expect that. -- Tanned Tonya 11 November 2004 All you alliance-type people, I'm trying (again!) to get my alliance listing correct and up to date. Either send me a diplo (address it to The Saint) or send your updates to me directly at Sue at solberg-mathews.com. As you may guess, replace the at with @ and you're good to go (I do hate spammy mail and this will end up on the web). I have information on the following alliances: ADIO, Allied Axis, Armada, Brotherhood of Justice, Brotherhood of the Blade, Cadre, CDC, Chaos, Inc., Circle of Order, Company of Brothers, Consortium, Council of Lords, Couple Good Guys, Crimson Vengeance, DOA, DOOMcorps, Enigmafia, Eurosquad, Fascist Federation, FONZ, Frothingslosh Syndicate, GAPPDA, Homeland Alliance, IT Alliance, Jingoists, kLk, Knights of the Covenant, LBA, League Arcane, Legion6, Living Essences, Lords and Ladies of Darkness, Manic Union, Midnight Foundation, Minions of Diana, Monarchs of Montezuma, NCA, NIMROD, R.A.G.E., Seventh Sons, The Firm, The French Connection, Vendett@ United, and the Vendetta Cartel. If you are a member of one of these alliances, let me know. If you are a member of some other alliance that isn't listed, let me know. If you were at any point in your past a part of one of these alliance but are now independent, also let me know. Going inactive doesn't mean you get removed from this list; people are assumed to still be in the same alliance when they return. Even having everyone in an alliance go inactive doesn't change anything. If an alliance is officially disbanding, that's another thing you have to let me know.... The Saint, keeper of lists P.S. If you already responded to my online plea (and I replied), you can ignore this. 17 November 2004 Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups Hosted by Hammer Niytyole Island DM 33 has dwindled to the point where as of T-482 [duedate November 3, 2004] there were only 2 active stables listed with 3 inactive stables in a once thriving and lively regular arena. During the past 40+ cycles Hammer has been hosting the Hammer Run for the Roll Ups in DM 33. Thus far only the Ripper and Slasher categories have produced winners to claim the 5 New Team Roll Ups Prize for being the first declared Style Master of their respective categories to graduate. Every contending stable has gone inactive for one reason or another, including CASINO HAMMERZ, over the past several months. Now DM 33 faces the harsh reality that if RSI chooses to close any arenas due to little or no interest, Niytyole Island could very well head the list of endangered regular arenas! In an effort to preserve his beloved island, Hammer is announcing the continuation of the Hammer Run for the Roll Ups; combined with the Hammer 500 which will conclude both contests on T-500 [duedate July 13, 2005] should DM 33 continue to remain open in the coming months. Attention Hammer Runners! The Hammer Run is for 0 FE Basic Arena Warriors ONLY. Participants MUST Be Declared in the P-ads On or Before their First DM 33 Basic Arena Fight to Qualify as a Hammer Runner! Winners of Each Category will receive 5 New Team Roll Up Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer! [On the condition that they Graduate on or before T-500; see amended rules below!] The following Style Master categories remain open with a listing of how many declared contestants are still entered and their W/L recognition record at the time of their disappearance from the Hammer Run competition: (P-ad declarations in parenthesis) [Manager name/Stable name in brackets] followed by their last known W/L recognition ranking Rippers Category Now Closed for Hammer Run as of T-475 01.

Porkey LR (T-463) [Kellog/Pig Battalion] 2-3-0,9 As you can plainly see, the Hammer Run is still wide open in several categories, depending upon whether or not the deactivated stables are reactivated for the Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups contest! Any declared warrior who succeeds in graduating by T-500 will win 5 New Team Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer! Gift Certs will be awarded as soon as possible upon official graduation if the graduation occurs prior to T-500. On T-500 the highest ranked ACTIVE declared warrior in the category(s) without a Graduate will win 2 New Team Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer! Additional Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups Gift Cert Prizes: Five (5) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager whose warrior claims the Duelmaster Throne on T-500. Two (2) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed as the highest Active Challenger Champion, Champion, Challenger Adept, Adept, Challenger Initiate and Initiate on T-500. In the event that NO Duelmaster is seated upon the Duelmaster Throne on T-500 there will be Three (3) Gift Certs awarded to the managers whose Active warriors are tied for recognition points at the Top of the Challenger Champions recognition standings. [Therefore, the Top CC will be awarded 3 Gift Certs instead of 2 for being ranked as the highest CC on T-500]. One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) graduate on T-500. One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) receive their graduation announcement on T-500.

SHOULD RSI CHOOSE TO CLOSE DM 33 PRIOR TO T-500 ONLY THE HIGHEST ACTIVE DECLARED STYLE MASTER CONTESTANTS WILL BE AWARDED TWO (2) GIFT CERTS AND ALL OTHER PRIZE CATEGORIES WILL BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID BY HAMMER!!!!!!!!! The purpose of this contest is to restore DM 33 to a lively and entertaining arena! Hammer is willing to foot the Prize bill in a last ditch effort to save Niytyole Island from deletion if RSI and the Gladiatorial Commission decide that more arenas need to be closed due to lack of participation and interest. Should this effort fail to spare DM 33 from deletion, then Hammer is prepared to transfer CASINO HAMMERZ to another arena if Niytyole Island is closed by RSI and the Gladiatorial Commission.
