                                   HAMMERZ HERALD
           Maximillian's Morya Madness Round Eighteen Edition/DM 28 T-245
                                      by Hammer

         He who walks uprightly shall be safe, but he who willfully goes in double
and wrong ways shall fall in one of them.  -- Proverbs 28:18  Amplified Bible

     {Hammer Note: Last issue the scripture verse should have been verse 17 of
Proverbs 28 and NOT verse 16 as printed as I overlooked changing the number when
editing the Spot!]

     GIMLEE DROPPED THE FLOWERS SHE WAS ARRANGING AND HER FACE BECAME WHITER THAN ASH
as she listened to the recounting of the recent dangerous adventure as told by Lady
Martilyo; who had found herself deposited inside Hammerz Flower Shoppe after being
teleported by the Elven Orbs of Transport from the scene of battle with the Dark Spot
Cult Trolls.
     Lady Martilyo instinctively knew that a deep rooted trauma buried deep within
GimLee had been suddenly exposed!
     Shaking uncontrollably with tears running down her face...GimLee choked upon her
halting words as she revealed her secret to Lady Martilyo....

     HAMMER KNEW THE TIME HAD COME TO DISBAND THE CRIMSON ASCENSION FAMILY because
forces were in motion that would require a re-arranging of managerial priorities.
     Rook had vanished from the Madness sands...quite possibly(?) by falling into
some sort of mischief from stepping into the Elven Looking Glass Dimensional Portal
that Hammer had presented to him as a gift in the wake of RED ORCHID HAMMER's Death!
     Lady Martilyo was needed to protect GimLee...which would require the Healer and
High Priestess to take refuge in the newly constructed Crimson Ascension Temple on
the grounds of Hammerz Flower Garden Morya Manor Estate on the Lake!
     Yes...it was time to disband the Vendetta Cartel Crimson Ascension Family...to
usher in a new VC Tribe of Managers Who would Live by the Feud of Vendetta!
     Hammer summoned a special courier to alert Lady Martilyo as to what must be
done...for by now GimLee must have revealed her secret to Lady Martilyo as Hammer had
expected...for it was by His Design that Lady Martilyo was deposited in Hammerz
Flower Shoppe after their Victory over the Dark Spot Cult Trolls!
     Now Hammer could focus more attention to the Death Fest in DM 59...as the newly
anointed Vendetta Cartel Captain; WordSmith and WeaponSmith of the Vendetta Cartel
Tarantula Tribe!
     Searching for Tarantula Tribe members of the Vendetta Cartel would take some
time...but Hammer was a patient man...first contact would be made with Maximillian
and Firehawk...offering them Lieutenant positions in the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula
Tribe....

     MEANWHILE.....STILL PERCHED HIGH IN THE MOUNTAINS BEYOND MORYA.....A DARK
CLOAKED FIGURE CONTINUES PLOTTING HIS MOVE AGAINST MORYA.....CONVINCED THAT MADNESS
HAS MISGUIDED HAMMER.....NOT REALIZING HAMMER THRIVES ON MADNESS.....

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in MORYA a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as OTTO'S MECHANICS is pushed out of top team by THE WARLORDS II, who 
came from 5th with a 5-0-0 this turn.  Now, what did these guys have for breakfast 
this morning?  CANADIAN BACON has turned a 3-2-0 into 12th place from 23rd.  Give me 
the recipe!  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown 
for RED IRON KNIGHTS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 9 into 23rd.  The THE 
PENTARCHY guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You 
never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, THRAKKLASH fought CUBIC 
ZIRCONIUM and gained 21 points and contributed to LADZ OF LUGBURZ's 2-3-0.  NYALL 
BLOODGRIN has lost to LADY CONSOLACION, falling 18 points, while helping make 
NORTHERN BADLANDS a 2-3-0 turn.  PEG-LEG BOUCHARD challenged for the Duelmastership 
this turn, attempting to dethrone BOXOROX's warrior.  And all eyes were on PEG-LEG 
BOUCHARD this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  MORYA has a new 
victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
Arthur's Last Stand uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  THE WARLORDS II has cause to stand tall, as they were MORYA's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And avoiding THE 
WARLORDS II more than any other team we find OTTO'S MECHANICS.  MORYA, are we going 
to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
OTTO'S MECHANICS' warrior RAY D AYTOR.  More fighters challenged him than challenged 
the Duelmaster!  In a fit of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), 
PADDY SWEENEY challenged FOOLISH FOLGERS today, facing a 30 difference in 
recognition.  And now nobody knows where FOOLISH FOLGERS is right now, after giving 
PADDY SWEENEY 20 points worth of recognition.  As quiet chuckles rise behind me.  
Well now, what do you expect when someone like GIARDIA from BAD GERMS challenges down 
22 points to fight MISSLE COMMAND of CLASSIC ARCADE?  It pains me to see warriors 
take advantage of the system like this.  GIARDIA slew MISSLE COMMAND, as if it 
surprises anyone.  In a brave attempt, CONJUNCTIVITIS from BAD GERMS challenged up 23 
points to fight NJORD from the VALHALLA stable.  CONJUNCTIVITIS perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he bested NJORD and ended up with 47 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  LADZ OF LUGBURZ made what looks to be a tough decision this turn, as 
they sent GROTTRAK THE SNEAK, with a record of 4-11-1, to GROTTRAK THE SNEAK death.  
Farewell, his.  Whatever bright future MISSLE COMMAND may have had, it's all history 
now.  The manager of CLASSIC ARCADE has lost a promising 3-1-1 warrior.  
Congratulations go out to THE PENTARCHY, with LE NETTOYE' revenging a bloodfeud 
against POISONOUS PEACH of FRUITS OF DEATH.  Arthur's Last Stand declares a free 
round for EROTIC EEEK and all of IDIOTIC ICCERS, for having revenged CLASSIC ARCADE's 
ZAXXON for killing one of their comrades.  Is it really true that MORYA has more 
dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, MORYA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MORYA and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Tyger Lily Hammer -- Yes, a big OOPS on my part.  Influenza was supposed to have been
a Parry Lunger.  Unfortunately, we had him out of his petri dish in the lab, doing
some experiments and making sure he was ready to start his nasty task of infecting
the madness and he got put back into the wrong petri dish.  I didn't even think to
check the label when I sent my ad for his declaration.  To fix this mistake and avoid
any possible confusion, Influenza has been exterminated and will trouble the madness
no more! -- Assurnasirbanipal

Slaughter Priest -- Tough turn for you!  Best wishes with your replacements.  I'll
check my side for any input errors, but I'm not too hopeful.... -- Assur

Hammer -- Enter Moonraker into the AB stylemaster competition.  It's late in the
contest, but ABs are frail and die a lot, so who knows. -- The Omnimancer

Pentarchy -- That challenge was supposed to go elsewhere.  Don't get me wrong, I do
down challenge on occasion, but that one was not intentional.  With a win and those
skills, I'm sure you don't mind. -- Luna Knight

Mesmeric Fiend -- Who Mesmerized Who, you fiendish brute. -- Ray D Aytor

Nerf The Softy -- I've always loved my toys to be squeezable and non-bruising. --

Hengist -- I feel like I've been through the car wash fully extended. -- Anne Tenna

Legend -- A while to go before you live up to your name I think. -- Hub Capp

Idun -- Good fight, old girl, helped my manager make a decision about this team.  No
point fighting puds against "super" humans, so he will bring in something with more
bit (and wit) in a month or so. -- Thor lost in thoughts

Crip -- I hope that helps with the loss of Golf.  See you in 72 later this month.
Legend still can't believe he lost. -- Liam the Goth

Hammer -- I enjoy reading your spotlight stories.  They're half the reason I moved a
team here. -- Liam the Goth
P.S.  Thanks for the diplo.  I did not make the DF this year.  Maybe next year.

Sensei Jan -- I'm happy I did not run into any of your guys. -- Liam

Madness Managers -- I have resigned my position with the Vendetta Cartel to help
Hammer achieve new goals to make the Vendetta Cartel a stronger alliance.  My
Filipina Ladyz will remain active during the Madness as my goal is to get them
graduated.  My best wishes are for the members of the Vendetta Cartel to carry on and
become a force to be feared wherever the VC members cross blades.  Thanks to one and
all for their kindness in the P-ads and especially on the sands for not killing my
Ladyz.  :) -- Lady Martilyo
P.S.: My former alliance mates in the Vendetta Cartel are welcome to challenge my
Ladyz for the remainder of the Madness if it suits your purposes.  Please just
refrain from killing.  :)

that will still be standing STRONG year in and year out!  As Captain of the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe, I will be patiently searching for the right chemistry of
managers to fill the T-Tribe roster!  Perhaps you are one of those managers?  The Top
Priority is that You have Active Online Capabilities to Email and Exchange
Correspondence.  If so, contact HammerDM@fastermail.com to discuss the possibility of
being welcomed as a Vendetta Cartel T-Tribe member! -- Hammer/Vendetta Cartel

Cactus Hammer
P.S.  Sad to Hear We are NO Longer in the Same Family!

Bulwyf Redhammer -- Thanks for the Dance!  Hammer is Modifying My Strategy as a
Result of Your Victory!  Congratulations!  Perhaps Another Random Match Up will come

Enjoyable One!  Time to Bear Down for the 10 Round Stretch Drive! -- Hammer/Sponsor

Missile Command -- What, arrows and the like?  Useful in their places, no doubt, but
you need faith and staunch followers, too. -- Young Joan
P.S.  And armor!

Sailor Moon -- I see many moons, from the harvest moon to the hungry to the planting
moon and around again, but I have not before seen a sailor's moon.  Of course, I blow
over the plains, not the coast, and that may explain it. -- Nightwind

Erotic Eeek -- I must tell you that all the images arising from your personal name
confirm your team name as fully appropriate.  You are, indeed, idiotic, if possibly
not terribly icy at this season. -- Redwind

Don Carnage -- Didn't your momma tell you not to play with knives that way?  You
could hurt somebody! -- Blunt Arrow

Centipede -- Very (urp!) clever.  (sour look)  You (urp!) had me searching for (urp!)
your extra (urp!) legs, which, (urp!) of course, I couldn't (urp!) see (limited

invisibility?), and while I (urp!) was preoccupied with (urp!) the invisible limbs,
(urp!) you bopped (urp!) me with a visible (urp!) one.  I call that (urp!) sneaky and
underhanded.  The (urp!) sort of thing a Clanton would (urp!) do. -- Wyatt Burp

Twelve columns of contest stats this time, I see.  Too bad we can't manage even half

-- Poisonous Peach

Dandelion Hammer -- Well, I figured one of us had to break our ducks in that one...
fortunately it was me! -- Deadly Date

     Break your ducks?  This is an idiom with which I am unfamiliar.  Were you using
     ducks as weapons or something of the sort? -- Ed. the curious

Galena -- Would you like another easy win; it's worth it for me.  You teach well. --
Maximus Decimus

Mot -- Uhmm!  Sorry about that, brother. --Wasteland Warlord (a bit sheepish)

Yo!  What's up, Tiger Lily. -- Bulwyf Redhammer

challenged the big FE warriors and turns out they're on my side. -- A Regretful
Maximillian

Lady -- I hear you are leaving, say it isn't so. -- Maximillian

Prickly Pear -- Don't think it'll be easy next time; the old genius level is kickin'
in. -- Bulwyf Redhammer

Morya -- No spotlight this turn, there will be one next time.  It just wasn't in the
cards this time round. -- Maximillian, Keeper of the Madness

Hammer -- A new beginning for us.  I look forward to it.  Long live the fighters! --
Brother Maximillian

The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a

                            Invitation to Newbie Managers
                                 by Hammer

     As a Captain of the Vendetta Cartel, Hammer has recently dissolved the Vendetta
Cartel Crimson Ascension Family.  Lady Martilyo and Rook are NO LONGER members of the
Vendetta Cartel.
     The Vendetta Cartel is divided into "Families" under the leadership of Captains;
who have been appointed by the VC God Father known throughout the dueling land as
Master Darque.
     Hammer is now the Captain of the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe and the veteran
manager extends an invitation for prospective membership as a Probate [ONLY 2 Probate
positions are available in the VC Tarantula Tribe at the present time!] to any Newbie
Manager who qualifies under the following conditions:
     1. Newbie Manager MUST have Online Access for Email communications!  [Hammer is
presently living in Qatar and Lieutenants Maximillian and Firehawk are living in
Canada; so Email Communication is a MUST for consideration!]
     2. Newbie Manager MUST have the time and funds to create 2 new stables to be
placed in 2 separate Slow Arenas [the cost of running 1 stable in a Regular Arena!]
to actively participate on a monthly basis with the other 3 T-Tribe members of the
Vendetta Cartel!
     3. Newbie Manager MUST have the DESIRE to be an Active Member of the Vendetta
Cartel as a Tarantula Tribe trainee aka Probate; developing his/her managerial skills
under the mentorship of Hammer and the other VC members; thus proving themselves
worthy to become Vendetta Cartel Lieutenants in the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe!
     The Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe lives by the Feud; thereby prospective
