                                 A Promise Fulfilled
                                      by Hammer

     HAMMER TOOK A GOOD LONG LOOK BEFORE ADDRESSING the five gladiators who had
assembled themselves together for an audience with the Veteran Manager in his new
guild house in Arkers Arena.
     "So these are the fine specimens that Maximillian has sent to my new guild house
to entice me to fulfill my promise that someday I would enter a stable in Arkers to
compete in Maximillian's Home Arena alongside his Northern Badlands stable," mused
Hammer to himself as he examined the paperwork accompanying each of his newly
acquired gladiators.
     ACID FIRE HAMMERZ was the name that Hammer chose to write in the Gladiatorial
Commission entry form to admit his newly transferred stable to Arkers.
     FAIRY FIRE HAMMER; Gender: Female; Race: Fairy.
     BURPS FIRE HAMMER; Gender: Male; Race: Half Elf.
     ELVEN FIRE HAMMER; Gender: Female; Race: Elf.
     TROLL FIRE HAMMER; Gender: Male; Race: Troll.
     DWARF FIRE HAMMER; Gender: Female; Race: Dwarf.
     "Everything seems to be in order on my end," commented Hammer as he shuffled
more papers that Maximillian had sent along with the new warriors, "now let me see
where Max had this group hidden away before deciding to send them to me."
     Hammer studied the papers as a wide grin slowly crept its way along the outline
of his grimly set jaw.

     BURP!
     The Half Elf BURP FIRE HAMMER involuntarily squirmed under the scrutiny of
Hammer as the Veteran Manager smirked.
     "It is most understandable as to why your masquerade as a female in
Maximillian's former stable failed so miserably to the point where you and your
comrades were dispatched into my services," stated Hammer matter-of-factly with
another grin.
     The paperwork Hammer was so intently studying disclosed the fact that
Maximillian had dispatched a stable that was bound for Dragonhead back to Arkers for
Hammer to add to his numerous HAMMERZ stables that stretched across the fabled land
of Alastari.
     VICIOUS VAMPS were now renamed ACID FIRE HAMMERZ and the former LORI BOBBEDIT
was now named BURPS FIRE HAMMER.
     "I just [BURP!] wanted to [BURP!] be closer to [BURP!] MORTICIA ADAMS,"
explained the Half Elf who was infatuated with the Elf now known as ELVEN FIRE
HAMMER.
     The former CRUELLA DE VILLE was now known as FAIRY FIRE HAMMER and Hammer was
intrigued as to how a Fairy would fare in the gladiatorial arena.
     The Dwarf now known as DWARF FIRE HAMMER had once been known as TONYA HARDING of
Maximillian's VICIOUS VAMPS.
     "We shall see how vicious a fighter you really are," stated Hammer as he studied
each of the warriors in turn.
     Finally Hammer's gaze fell upon the Troll now known as TROLL FIRE HAMMER. It was
obvious to the Veteran Manager that the former DA-1 was extremely grateful for the
opportunity to fight in DM 8 instead of by Torch Light in DragonHead Arena.
     "It was just a case of mistaken identity and misfiled paperwork," explained the
grateful Troll.  "Give me an opportunity in Arkers and I will show you what I am able
to do when given the chance!"
     Hammer merely smiled.
     "I have been known over the years to allow many warriors to prove themselves in
the Basic Arena as a member of my fabled stables," Hammer assured the Troll, "instead
of sending them to certain death in the Dark Arena to fight by Torch Light.  You will
have your opportunity to show Maximillian in person in front of his Home Arena just
what you are capable of accomplishing when given the chance!"
     Hammer dismissed the 5 transferees to settle themselves in their new
accommodation before debuting on the Arkers Arena sands in a few short days.
     "This is NOT the type of stable I would have chosen to send to Arkers," mused
Hammer as he finished signing the paperwork to complete the transaction for the
sanctioned registry with the Gladiatorial Commission, "but then again, it will amuse
me to allow these gladiators to perform in Maximillian's Home Arena to allow my
alliance mate the opportunity to watch his creations progress or vanish by the sword
in the process!"

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Fellow Arkerians,

And so the saga continued.  A champion of steel, indeed a Chaos Warrior 'brought it
on' last cycle.  And lo he was vanquished...but thanks for the challenge (it's always
nice to be wanted), the skills AND the ratings.  You are most welcome any time!!

Will Lethal Justice's minions stick around long enough to take a pop at me?  Who
knows.  If not, then I guess I have another date with a Waif from these parts.  Not
sure how much longer my luck can last; we'll all just have to wait and see!

As wise man once say..."The more I practice the luckier I get."

Time for more practice!

Your Duelmaster of Domination...Goldeneye....

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARKERS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for KILLER TOYS, whose 0-0-0 this turn 
dropped them by 9 into 18th.  Ha!  PHOENIX FIRE turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 4th 
place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit 
lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, LA PENTARCHIE, the 
Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  I can just hear all the boasts coming 
in ACID FIRE HAMMERZ's next personal ads.  Their first turn they went 3-2-0.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see FEORDIS INK win a fight and gain 20 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TOBACCO ROSE beat GEROGE JIM and GEROGE JIM lost 13 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ARKERS may 
be getting bland, as GOLDENEYE stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good 
mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
ARKERS?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  PHANTOM FORCES 2 was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led 
the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
NORTHERN BADLANDS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, YMIR BLOODRAVEN was 
this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I 
can give a little credit to SASHA BAL TOR of NORTHERN BADLANDS for challenging up by 
20 to FRENZIED WAIF.  SASHA BAL TOR won to get 96 points of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Gee, NORTHERN BADLANDS, ain't it past due 
for sending KAMEN THE HUNTER Dark Arena?  What took ol' '8-8-2' so long?  Hope?  Ha 
ha aha ha!  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, LUKE of ENTENTER 
has added the final loss to his 4-6-1.  Tee hee!  We're all going to die in the end, 
so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Well, Zababa, I couldn't myself figure out the tactic of Motel du Lac, so I thought
he would have even more fun in the Dark arena. -- Le Pentarque

Merci, Gravedigger, ga fait plaisir de lire quelques mots de frangais.  Bonne chance
sur le sable, mjme si je crois qu'un de mes guerriers t'a difii.

I don't want to be killed by Goldeneye, I don't want to get killed by Goldeneye....
-- L'orc bleu, getting paranoid

V. Baltimore is considering the dark arena option.  Does anybody in this arena want
him to stay?

Blackstorm -- Welcome back!  Have we not met on the sands before?? -- Spawn, mgr.
Bondage

Mongoose -- Erm....  And what am I supposed to do with all them recognition points???
I'm not ready to be here...yet.  That's a nasty trick! -- Pussy G

Doomstorm, RIP -- Yipes!!!  I'm claiming self defence for that one.  There I was,
minding my own business when you charge at me (repeatedly, don't you know!)
broadsword swinging in that nasty cleaving motion and all.  All I did was step back
and point my tickling stick at you, which you impale yourself upon and die on me.
AND you got my clothes all bloody...sheesh.  AND you had the cheek to curse me for my
troubles....  *sigh*  AND I suppose you're going to set your friends on me now too.
There just is NO justice.... -- Emm...
P.S.  Unlucky!

Luke -- I think in a weird way you did me a favour by knocking me desperate...
thanks! -- Rosa K

Ymir Bloodraven -- Unlucky.  Not the challenge I was expecting.  Question is, will
you try again immediately or let someone else join in?? -- Queue

Frenzied Waif -- I find your name to be apropos; after you went desperate, it really
showed! -- Fire Fly

Falcon -- I feel fortunate to have been able to hang in there; should there be a next
time, I doubt that I will be so lucky. -- Zababa

Arkers -- I regret that I was unable to represent our arena better at the Halloween
tournament.  I miscalculated Zababa's FE, so he stayed out, and Gryphos did not
perform as well as I expected him to.  I thought that either of them might T.V.  I
must give honorable mention to Tobacco Rose for her 7-3 performance in the Adepts
class.  Those of you who know her fighting style can appreciate how well she did, and
if you knew her stats, you'd be really impressed.  If she can learn skills fast
enough, maybe she'll surprise me in the Champions Class. -- Bobby Bigfoot/Phoenix
Fire

All -- The wheel turns eternally, and Yuletide approaches.  May the sanctity and
magick of the season bless all of your lives. -- Bobby Bigfoot/Phoenix Fire

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.

                       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

     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.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed
in the Top Warrior Of Each Style newsletter announcement on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the

     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose stable is listed as the

     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.
