                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, I'm still here.  No thanks to Bhagwandass.  He didn't get his bloodfeud
challenge.  He ended up fighting Adara.  That must have been fun for him.  I ended up
fighting Veteran Mercenary.  Which turned out to be a good move.  I got some good
learns out of him.  This turn the match up between me and Bhagwandass is on.  Adara
promised me she wouldn't interfere.  So I should be here again next turn.  I should
start thinking about what I need to graduate.  May Kjarran guide your blades!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZUWAYZA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  ZUWAYZA watched with 
glee as JAGUAR WARRIORS got knocked off top spot by VALHALLA!  What's with ELLE?  She 
actually beat VALHALLA's YMIR, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS while they watched ELLE clobber YMIR.  He 
lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  What a role 
model for ZUWAYZA's young 'uns!  DING HAO becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to 
fight no more!  I'm sure ZUWAYZA is excited about TMARACK, the new Duelmaster from 
THE SIERRAS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, FUNKY FOLK!  The bums at SWEDEN couldn't face the challenges from FUNKY 
FOLK!  No excuse for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...--

allowed to hit back, you know. -- White Wolf

Deo Volente -- Well, YOU are not supposed to hit ME.  So STOP. -- (Plain Wrapper)

Jill Oppy -- I was so startled when your fender fell off that I never saw your bumper
headed for me!  Ouch. -- Elle

Surtur -- Aren't you in the wrong place? -- Sports Ill.

Deo Volente -- What?  Tell me you're not working for one of those scandal sheets like
the Free Enquierer! -- Elle
P.S.  And what were YOU doing there, eh?

Sforno Obadja -- They SAID one hundred fights, but they LIED.  A warrior just reached

Odin -- Last of the Overlords, you need not worry about my fighters.  They are doing

not. -- Noachian, Servant of Kjarran, mgr. Jaguar Warriors

Master Odin -- You honor me with your words.  "The ultimate expression of the great

words like a crown.  Thank you, master.  All duty is to Our Lord Kjarran. -- Sforno

All -- Well, I'm kind of pressed for time here, so let me just dig into my files for
a base, general insult.  Insult # 25: "You all suck!  Your warriors couldn't beat a
chickmunk!  You shall bow to my warriors and my superior intelligence!!  I do the

can't deny!  When a girl with walks in with an ittie bittie thing and a round thing
in your face you get sprung!!...What the ????  Damn it Jekyll!  Have you been
screwing with the Foundation Files again?  This isn't funny!  Yeah it was funny when
you filled Carnage's shoes with Shewish Giant's crap and then Carnage put the shoes

                                    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
     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
     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
     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:

Is there anybody in the DM game who is incarcerated that has had to litigate in order
to continue playing?  Or anyone in the free world who may be able to help me with
case law or legal advice?  The Administration has already taken "D&D type games" from
us once (though I recently had that decision overturned).  I believe it's only a
matter of time before they try it again and I am prepared to file a lawsuit if need
be.  I enjoy DM and any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated!  I

contest ever to grace the arena sands!  Intrigue, personal wars, you name it...we got

Rules will be printed in the DM 47 newsletter at least until the contest starts. --
