                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hello Aruak,

My manager assures me that it is a great honor to address you all in this forum; I 
will choose to give him the benefit of the doubt.  I do not consider myself Aruaki, 
but in hindsight I feel certain that I chose the right arena to begin my career in.  
There was little doubt that such a time as this would come for me, when I would be in 
transition to become one of the landed, honored, residents of the Isle of the Eye.  
If it took 14 losses, then so be it--the hardships I've withstood are irrelevant now.  
I still live, and so it seems I will go on living for a very long time.

Your Duelmaster,
Lady Protector Syrlania

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ARUAK CITY needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  The guys at ERRATA 
like really pulled together to get a 2-1-0 this turn, moving up by 4.  One team 
deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 3 after going 3-1-0.  Keep it up, 
GERFEL'S FRIENDS!  MVP award for MONTEZUMA WHIFFLEBAT?  GERFEL'S FRIENDS' proud of 
him after beating LORD BENNETT and getting 27 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  
LORD BENNETT's match with MONTEZUMA WHIFFLEBAT cost him a loss of 21 points!  And I 
was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome 
ENBALMER.  Aren't THE LIVING DEAD proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said 
ARUAK CITY's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Bulldog Inn?  Don't look at me!  
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of GERFEL'S FRIENDS 
must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something 
that I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why ANIMAL FARM's been avoiding 
GERFEL'S FRIENDS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can ANIMAL FARM's 
ONYX OWL be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really 
the same?  HALO must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  She 
challenged THUNDERSTORM.  8 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought HALO showed great skill and promise when she bested THUNDERSTORM.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't believe how many people were 
snickering when DJANGO REINHARDT killed TIMMORN YELLOW EYES.  So he had a 8-12-1, 
that's no excuse!  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ARUAK CITY is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Yo Ho Ho!  Me Panther done slunk off as'n champeen! -- Mino

I finished strong, but was sure wrong on my faves.  GA/VH/Mod--bash/decise. -- Purple 
Panther

Warduke -- Thanks for the last hurrah. -- Purple Panther

Kianna Tom -- Why, thank you.  I like hooting at women. -- Onyx Owl (a real Hooter's 
fan)

Honey -- That was quick! -- Blue velvet, Proud Colorific

Thunderblade -- A mere piker like me?  Is your ego still in tact?  Are you... Green 
With Envy

Lord Kronos -- A tuft?  A mere tuft challenged me?  Thought you had an easy one, huh? 
-- Silver Lining (really feeling the silver lining) Proud Colorific

3-0?  With a tuft?  All in an easy day's work. -- Purple People Eater, Proud 
Colorific 

Treestump -- It was apparently your turn. -- Calfskin

Congratulations to Syrlania, the new Duelmaster.  Duelmasters drink free at The 
Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Eliza, you didn't pick on me.  You gave me a fair chance and I was found wanting. -- 
Calfskin (having just been skinned again!)

Jolith -- I'm taking the fifth! -- Hot Dog

     So that's why there's a gap in the line?  First, second, third, fourth, sixth.

Django -- Perhaps you made a mistake with that challenge?  Maybe you wanted the fries 
but not the Hot Dog? -- Hot Dog

Virginia's Secret -- It still is. -- Big Dog

Rainsong -- Wow!  I may have acted like a buckin' donkey (brayed and sucked), but I 
sure went to school and learned some stuff! -- Bucking Brahma

Syrlania -- Congratulations!  Immortality and free drinks at the Bulldog.  Maybe I 
can whip up something out of your manager's mushrooms. -- Adie

Street Legal -- Okay, you won that round.  There's something fishy going on with my 
challenges.  The 'TV' ones don't ever seem to go through. -- Tankesh

Willie Dixon -- Lucky.  You'd think I'd swing you know. -- Kalidor

Diamondback -- Ha ha!  Take that you evil snake! -- Vilnius

Frank Zappa -- I'm big, I'm new, I've got a whack strat.  What'ya say?  Thank ya? -- 
Jeb

Albino Rainbow -- Well that was hairy! -- Branford

Requiem -- Hmm... you must be from a different solar system, or gotten the end all be 
all of decise rolls on that one. -- Eliza

Azure Asp -- Coward.  Hiding from our bloodfeud.  Don't think it's over. -- Branford

that dagger handy! -- Montezuma Whifflebat

Jolith -- No!  I've got dibs on Hot Dog! -- The Singing Bandit

Leeta -- I hope you don't actually mean that you want me present IN the city of 
Fratsfa.  That's a long ways to travel!  But seriously, I don't know when I'll be 
active again in Fratsfa.  I still have one warrior (String Bean Jean) that I'd like 
very much to get out, but the company to be had there, currently, isn't at all to my 
liking.  Thanks for the heads-up though, I'll be paying attention. -- Generalissimo 
Puerco

     Well, there's always Zensu.  Of course, right NOW, there's also being Temp Ed.
     which puts a crimp in my time.  Sorry no episode today. -- Temp Ed./Scribe

All -- Regarding Syrlania, I'll just say that in hindsight, I'd trade her +4 decise 
for some lucky physicals and do it all over again.  I think she would have been more 
impressively fast if she'd been mode decise, but had it as her favorite learn.  She 
did get some nice scum-hunting favorites, which I hope will balance her physical 
unimpressiveness. -- Generalissimo Puerco

ALL -- I've been busy (you know, fighting the forces of evil).  So I'll be missing a 
turn here.  See you soon. -- Adie

All -- I'm back.  I have been getting the newsletters online so I have been keeping 
track of things.  Hopefully my guys can start getting some wins or else my days here 
are numbered. -- Dartor

Brook Burke -- I gotta tell you, you're too tall.  This is the root of your problem 
getting dates.  A guy likes to be taller than his date, see? -- Windchaser
P.S.  Just so you know.

Tonya Waits -- I wonder whether waiting would have worked for you?  We may never 
know, because you surely didn't do it that time! -- Lini Dawnwind

You'd think, what with getting sent into the arena underprepared and all, that usery 
would die out.  Doesn't look like it! -- Jo Mooncatcher

This whole "captured orc" thing puzzles me.  Where would somebody go to capture an 
]orc?  How would that differ from capturing a dwarf, or a Convincian? -- Rockie Dee

Timmorn Yellow Eyes -- Probably jaundice. -- Jon Fleet

Kalidor -- They probably figure you have something to hide. -- Jo Mooncatcher

1 March 2005
                                    The Contract
                         [as retold by Hammer the WordSmith]
     What had begun as a contract for swords and armor between a well known name in
the DM community and the former VC Captain/WordSmith and WeaponSmith of the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe was destined to impact and altar the landscape of the dueling
community for years to come.
     The following is but a condensed retelling of history in the making.

    Hammer continued sipping his tankard of Elven Tonic as the mysterious hooded
figure quietly seated himself across the table from the Veteran Manager whose back
was against the wall; allowing for a subtle, but effective surveillance of the dimly
lit tavern.
     Recent events in both Illis and North Fork/SCOMSS Swamp Arena had stunned the DM
managerial world with the announcement that Hammer had resigned from his position as
a well respected member of the Vendetta Cartel Alliance.
     Those managers and associates closest to Hammer were shocked and dismayed that
there seemed to be NO Rational Explanation for Hammer making such a seemingly
irrational, hasty and extremely illogical decision; by what seemed to be a spur of
the moment reaction following the Declaration of War by Hammer in the DM 47 P-ads.
     This is what stirred the mysterious hooded figure to seek Hammer with a request
that would change the managerial course of both men; ultimately Rocking the
Managerial World of Alastari as a result of the forthcoming decisions reached by the
two Veterans.
     Time passed swiftly as both Veteran Managers discussed how the landscape of the
DM game on the sands of Alastari had changed over the years both in Basic and Tourney
play; producing a new breed of managers who would of necessity band together in an
alliance with a common goal; waging war against antagonists while improving the
managerial skills of each participating member in their glorious quest for DM
excellence.
     Hammer listened intently as his unexpected guest inquired about the situation in
North Fork/SCOMSS Swamp Arena; revealing his desire to participate in the upcoming
Turf War 4 contest in DM 47 with an alliance that would accept him on a more
permanent basis other than for just fighting together as a TW4 alliance to win fame
and Gift Certs.
     Here was a Veteran Manager, seeking the advice of Hammer regarding an alliance
to join on a permanent basis; plus extending a sword arm of friendship and requesting
that Hammer join him as an alliance mate with those who would welcome their
membership.
     The Iron in the Words of Hammer had produced this opportunity as a result of the
recent conflicts witnessed first hand by the manager seated across the table from
Hammer.  This Veteran Manager had been secretly searching and scouting around
Alastari for someone worth his mettle to fight alongside; someone who would know
where to find the perfect gang of rebels who were unafraid of waging war against
anyone.
     Hammer knew exactly where to look and in a matter of days the two newcomers were
welcomed into the ranks of a group of managers who received them as war waging equals
in an alliance that had joined a Confederation of Alliances for the TW4 contest.
     Fighting under the banner of The Illuminati Confederation of Alliances alongside
members of Chaos Inc, kLk and The Company of Brothers during the TW4 was more than
either of the two Veteran Managers had envisioned a few months ago.
     Hammer was now entering a new journey with a new attitude.
     Perhaps you readers may have noticed that new attitude by now since this
announcement by Hammer is uncharacteristically Exclamation Point Free.
     Except for the famous quote by Hammer at the end of this announcement.
     Now that Hammer and the Mysterious Hooded Figure have agreed to join forces with
an alliance whose members have welcomed them enthusiastically; let those who desire
to be antagonistic be forewarned as to the identities of these newly welcomed wagers
of war:

Tripwire
kLk Bringer of Pain

Hammer
kLk WordSmith and WeaponSmith
Minister of War
Illuminati Idealist
