I didn't actually want to spare M. Chardinee's worthless life, but the arenamaster made me do it. Elle SPY REPORT Well, what are you looking at, ZUWAYZA? Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens before? Ah, shaddup and listen to my news. Later days, FUNKY FOLK, since THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news. Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see MODERN MATURITY win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly. And if variety is the spice of life, ZUWAYZA may be getting bland, as ELLE stays top dog in the city. Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights? Skill? Ha! He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward. Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, CAT FANCY was this turn's most challenged warrior. Watch that ego swell, sports fans. And we have CORPSE SITTER in a challenge, going down 12 points for the fight. Guess what? I thought CORPSE SITTER showed great skill and promise when he subdued CAT FANCY. All right, so I slept through it! Big deal! Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals. I volunteer for ZUWAYZA's morgue. More variety. Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use. Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one. What does the ZUWAYZA arena have in common with the inns? It's just as comfortable to sleep in either place. Ha ha ha ha! Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice! So nyaaah! I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME ELLE 4003 11 8 0 94 THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS (241) CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -SUE SHE 4844 6 1 1 68 FUNKY FOLK (405) CHALLENGER ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -JERRY ATTRICKS 4797 8 7 0 58 FUNKY FOLK (405) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME SPORTS III 4812 6 11 1 35 THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS (241) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -DOUG DEEP 4852 2 0 0 21 FUNKY FOLK (405) CORPSE SITTER 4339 2 0 0 20 KARNHORN KARNAGE (310) MODERN MATURITY 4855 1 0 0 13 THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS (241) -PUTRID DEFILER 4323 1 0 0 11 KARNHORN KARNAGE (310) -GELEB FLAMEFINGER 4338 1 0 0 10 KARNHORN KARNAGE (310) HOT ROD 4854 1 1 0 8 THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS (241) CAT FANCY 4853 0 2 0 2 THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS (241) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn.

What a long time ago was a fun motivated activity to help promote our common DM/D2 gaming interest in an effort to promote the growth and competitiveness of selected arenas has become a far from fun experience. In other words Hammer has had it! The combination of real life situations interfering with the time needed to effectively sponsor a contest, plus the attitudes expressed during such sponsorship interference has led to Hammer closing his personal coin coffers and retiring from his planned sponsorship of any future contests. There are others in our close knit gaming community who are well able to step up to the plate and continue sponsoring contests that make the basic game a fun experience for all those who choose to compete and interact in such future endeavors. Hammer thanks all managers both active and inactive who helped to make the Hammer sponsored contests a historical and entertaining experience well worth the time, effort and money spent over the past several years. May the Cheers and the Jeers of future contests build upon the legacies of those who have paved the way in years gone by to help make this game what it is today. Hammer has no regrets for the part he has played in that history. LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS CORPSE SITTER devastated CAT FANCY in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.
