                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly WILLAF games.  Former top team WYLDERNESS WYLD was 
unseated this week as LUST MUPPETS moved up from 6th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at DARK WARRIORS' 
guildhouse after a 1-4-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 7th.  Dark 
Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness 
how this week LUST MUPPETS went 5-0-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  HAPPY FUN BALL 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested 
UNEXPLAINED BACON and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, HAPPY FUN BALL put down UNEXPLAINED BACON, causing him to lose 12 
points of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior 
on the challenge boards this week was none other than Duelmaster HIMEI himself.  This 
time out ANNIE PINKLEY made hers bid for the throne as she challenged HIMEI in an all 
out contest of skill for possession of the title!  Although ANNIE PINKLEY made a 
valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious HIMEI.  
Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without 
pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  DARK WARRIORS is feared.  This 
much I can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of DARK WARRIORS last week.  Busy avoiding DARK WARRIORS?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in WILLAF as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Ruddy Joe -- The same turn we fought you were also listed as a style master so any
manger worth a grain of salt knows what you are.  Any manager worth anything will
also tell you style is only a small factor in a win. -- Diaretic

All -- Seeing that someone thinks that it is a big deal, Ghengis Kahn is a Slasher,
Ophidian is a Slasher, Joan of Arc is a Lunger, and Dark Priest is a Lunger.  Those
are the only styles I train. -- Diaretic
P.S.  That threat means nothing to me; can you say the same?
P.P.S.  I know everyone's style so I could do the same to you "Color Me."  But I'm
above that!

Help -- I still haven't got my fight results for turn 478.  If I fought your warrior
could you personal or diplo me the skills they learned.  It would be greatly
appreciated. -- Diaretic "The Dark Tides"

Anya -- Great fight for a while. -- Pyoa

Caliaphus -- Hung with ya for a bit, hopin' you'd get tired. -- Elesauris

Oran Ji -- Prickly armor, I like that, if you don't mind may have to use that one. --
Por Q. Pine
P.S.  Matter of fact, I'll use it right now.

Kurome -- How about that prickly armor? -- Por Q. Pine

Bluu Gnite -- Don't know what is was, just woke up a little burly. -- Grizz

Moot -- ACK!  I see now what it means when the question is moot.  It means forget it,
there is no way you're going to last long enough to debate that point.  ACK! -- O.
Pun Pleezj
P.S.  Good fight, more or less.

Antezel -- Thank you very much for not killing me (as I could see you WANTED to do),
thus allowing me to get that last pair of political points.  I'm headed straight for

Face Plant -- That means you like to plant yourself in other people's faces? -- Heck
S'Nutt

Bunko -- Your problem is that you're a neuter golem.  True, as some managers
endlessly proclaim, this rules out certain types of distraction.  But it also
deprives you of certain options available to the more conventional models.  You
should try it some time. -- Oran Ji

Murdox -- Is a murdox an ox that commits murder?  If so, it's a good thing I won!
And if not so, it's STILL a good thing I won.  Otherwise I wouldn't still have a
winning record. -- Peach Nutt

Por Q. Pine -- Lemon?  Noooo, I don't think so.  Lemon goes with my cousin Lime.  MY
preference is for (shudder) Grapefruit. -- Oran Ji

Grizz -- (blushing)  Uh...thanks!  I had a great teacher; care to have a drink with
me at the "Puking Warthog"? -- Leena

Readers, and especially those who volunteered warriors -- My apologies for the sudden
lack of episodes.  I've been sick, but expect to be back at the keyboard soon. -- the

                   MONGO'S MARDI GRAS MADNESS DUELMASTERS AUCTION

     Mongo, aka Matt McIntosh and ex-Warden of the Dark Circle, is auctioning off his
entire collection of Duelmasters warriors and stables.  Don't miss out on this chance
to own some fantastic warriors!  There are ADM warriors available in every class from
Primus to Freshmen, as well as over a dozen Basic stables.
     Does a Slasher with +4 attack, +4 decisiveness, +3 initiative and +2 riposte
sound good?  How about a Lunger who received the benefit of a TC prize, has TVed
three times after graduating--and still hasn't maxed out his skills!?  How about a
Striker in the Freshmen class who has decisiveness for a favorite learn and the MAUL
for a favorite weapon!?
     Or perhaps you prefer playing in Basic.  Then how does a stable with four Adept
class warriors who have a combined record of 41-19-9 sound?  Or maybe a stable with
three 21-Will warriors?  Or perhaps a stable with four Initiates and a Rookie who
have a combined record of 23-6-1?
     The quality of the lots is excellent.  All you need to view and bid on the lots
is go to:
          http://members.aol.com/jvmerlino/mardigras.html
     If you want to be on the mailing list to receive regular updates on the auction,
just send an e-mail to JVMerlino@aol.com. Merlin, aka John Merlino and also an ex-
Warden of the Dark Circle, will be running this auction for me.  I just moved to New
Orleans and am likely currently stumbling around the French Quarter...because it's
Mardi Gras!  So I have named my auction in honor of this occasion.
     The auction will start on Saturday, March 13th, 2004, and will continue for
several weeks.  But you should get your bids in early if you want your best chance at
owning any of these fantastic warriors and stables.
     Many thanks to all for your interest and your bids,

Mongo

Style Masters Symposium
Hosted by Hammer

     The years have slipped by and many DM Managers have come and gone since the last
Hammer's Handbook was compiled and printed.
     There is now a stirring within me to begin writing and editing yet another
Handbook with a distribution date sometime in 2005.
     This Handbook will be made available via Email with a possibility of burning the
info to a CD for distribution.
     Special arrangements will be made to provide the information via printed page to
those contributors who are serving sentences behind bars.
     The working title of this new Handbook is "Style Masters Symposium Hosted by
Hammer".
     Distribution of this Handbook is projected to be MAINLY for those DM Managers
who contribute information/articles to Hammer by June 2004.
     Informative and entertaining articles should focus on insights regarding Any or
All 10 Style Masters for both the Basic and ADM arenas as well as Tourney
competition.
     Articles focusing on Weapons/Armor are also encouraged for inclusion.
     Whether you are a Newbie Manager without a clue or a Jaded Veteran; everyone has
discovered something about this gaming experience that is both Insightful and
Entertaining.
     Email Your Articles to HammerDM@fastermail.com or send them via Diplo to either
Flower Hammerz (372) in DM 28 or Casino Hammerz (576) in DM 33.
     Length and Content of the Style Masters Symposium Hosted by Hammer will be
Determined by the Quality and Quantity of Contributors Combined with the Literary
Efforts of Hammer who is currently overseas for an indefinite period of time.
     Articles Contributed for this Project should be of Sufficient Length and Content
to Warrant being Included to Receive the Finished Document when Hammer has completed
this literary work to His satisfaction.
     Managers contributing articles are also requested to include a DM Bio of
Themselves along with any Notable Successes and/or Failures during Their DM Career in
Basic, ADM and/or Tourney Play.
     A listing of Active Stables would also be Helpful for Anyone Seeking to Reply to
Contributors via Diplo, Email or Snailmail.
     May Your Blades Be Sharp And Your Wits Sharper!
