           Maximillian's Morya Madness Round Nineteen Edition/DM 28 T-246
                                      by Hammer

         He who cultivates his land will have plenty of bread, but he who follows
worthless people and pursuits will have poverty enough. -- Proverbs 28:19 Amplified
Bible

     AS GIMLEE AND LADY MARTILYO TAKE REFUGE in the Crimson Ascension Temple on the
grounds of Hammer's Morya Manor Estate on the Lake a.k.a. Hammerz Flower Garden...
Hammer sends his regrets for currently being inactive in the Madness competition.
     Hammer will continue to update his records and print either partial or full
current standings among the ranks of the Madness competitors in this and future
HAMMERZ HERALD Maximillian's Morya Madness Editions.
     Maximillian will also be printing Madness updates via his own Team Spotlight as
the Madness continues down the stretch drive to the finish!
     Special Thanks to Liam the Goth for speaking up in the P-ads and informing
Hammer that the Hammer written Spots drew him to start a stable here in Morya...and
that the competition here forced Liam the Goth to deactivate said stable in favor of
finding a better stable to send to cross blades on the Madness sands!
     The current storyline will resume as soon as Hammer adjusts to his new workload
overseas and is able to type with more regularity!

     FLOWER HAMMERZ are expected to reactivate in either December or January,
depending upon the timeline of salary release and payment delivery to the
Gladiatorial Commission to remove the negative account balance.
     Hammer will be reactivating certain warriors and stables over a period of time,
so FLOWER HAMMERZ may have to wait in a line of priority!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  MORYA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, THE WARLORDS 
II, but OTTO'S MECHANICS was just too good to be stopped.  I don't wanna hurt 
anybody's feelings or anything, but IDIOTIC ICCERS really goofed with their 1-4-0.  
The guys at CLASSIC ARCADE like really pulled together to get a 4-0-0 this turn, 
moving up by 7.  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, BOXOROX!  'Cause they 
got 4-0-1 and moved up to 5th!  MVP award for CUBIC ZIRCONIUM?  BOXOROX's proud of 
her after beating MESMERIC FIEND and getting 26 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  LADY BEATRIZ got smashed by YIP AGAIN, and lost 18 points!  The Duelmaster 
isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  PADDY SWEENEY knows this.  He was 
challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I 
think PEG-LEG BOUCHARD should let PADDY SWEENEY be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said MORYA's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at Arthur's Last Stand?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  THE WARLORDS II was the most avoided team.  Is a 52-41-3 record 
really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why BAD GERMS' been avoiding THE 
WARLORDS II so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is RAY D AYTOR 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of MORYA!  He's got a 17-22-0, 
is that good?  People were asking me did THRAKKLASH REALLY challenge GALENA?  (all 
right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or 
anything, but GALENA wants me to write about it since she won victory over 
THRAKKLASH.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't 
believe how many people were snickering when CUBIC ZIRCONIUM killed MESMERIC FIEND.  
So she had a 10-8-1, that's no excuse!  It was kind of sad, seeing old LADY EMELITA 
stumbling around the arena, before DOLTON MCGUILTY finished her off.  Oh well!  
CENTIPEDE bloodfeuded (is that a word?) GIARDIA for revenge over some guy's bad 
fortune.  Was it really worth it?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would 
like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Hammer -- Fizban declared Napoleon as part of the PS contest on turn 231.  He's
definitely in the hunt. -- Assur

No problem, Luna Knight.  Actually, L'itrangleur is quite tough.  Good luck on the
sands. -- Le Pentarque

Morya -- I totally forgot to announce the newest additions of the Idiotic ICCers (and
entries to the stylemaster challenges):
     Strikers -- Kooky Kiebitz
     Lungers -- Mouthy Microtone
-- THawk

Please enter my newest warrior, Galaxian, into the Aimed Blow stylemaster
competition. -- Street Legal, Classic Arcade
P.S.  Zaxxon was declared as a PS but I didn't see him in the list yet.

Blunt Arrow -- I think I held up pretty well for that particular style match. --

Frogger -- Stay the hell away from me, will ya. -- Grim Blacksmith

Moonshine -- Sorry dude, hate to do that to a friend. -- Maximus Decimus

Pyrite -- Didn't think you'd go down that fast at the end. -- Wasteland Warlord

Morya -- If there is no Spotlight this turn, don't be too hard on me, my work has had
me all over B.C. lately and now after one day back I'm off to the middle of the
Rockies for another week.  I will make certain there is one next time, I will try and
get it in if at all possible. -- Maximillian, Keeper of the Madness

Mot -- Good gods, you are the Mot Unjust!  You took away my winning record, and I
LIKED having a winning record, I really did. -- Nightwind
P.S.  With your record, you should be on OUR team.
P.P.S.  My thanks for the skills.

Don Carnage -- Okay, fine.  Good, in fact.  I'll have my bacon crisp, with eggs over
medium.  Maybe a little applesauce?  Yeah, applesauce sounds good. -- Redwind
P.S.  Do NOT tell me you don't do breakfast, with a team name like that?

Lady Beatriz -- (croaking)  You could have just offered me a mint.  (cough)  That has
a similar effect, without the pain.  (cough) -- Wyatt Burp

Alaric -- (impatiently)  So go find a war and lord over it.  Lord over TWO of them.
See if I care. -- Young Joan
P.S.  And men call US indirect!

Bulwyf Redhammer -- Ah, not a bad match, considering.  Nobody died, and there were a
lot of skills to go around, which is always good. -- Blunt Arrow
P.S.  I like the red enamel on your hammer.  Good idea, keeps it from rusting if you
should ever happen by some strange chance to get a little blood on it.
P.P.S.  I mean, of course, blood rather than your own.

     So if you get your own blood on a hammer, it doesn't rust? -- Ed., slightly
     confused, as is normal

Don Carnage -- No, I do fine the way I am.  I'm a small-game arrow, you see, and
being blunt, I knock them down with concussion, whereas if I was sharp, I'd rip what
little meat they contain to shreds. -- Blunt Arrow
P.S.  At least, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Deadly Date and Dandelion Hammer -- If you are using Ducks as weapons or targets or
in any other disrespectful manner, you will earn the enmity of all Ducks With Swords!
-- Ski Mask, Founder and President, Ducks With Swords, currently Guarding the Home

                            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
Probates are forewarned that membership guarantees instant Friends and instant
Enemies!
     Any prospective Probates who 1.) seek to improve their managerial
insights/abilities under the counsel of Hammer and other Vendetta Cartel members 2.)
desire to be active members of an Active Alliance that WILL NOT Dissolve in a Few
Months; building lasting friendships while enjoying Feuding with Common Enemies 3.)
who enjoy sending their gladiators to Tournaments and would strive to see their
manager name listed among the TV and TC winners in the Mailer Tourney Newsletters as
a member of the Vendetta Cartel MUST DO THE FOLLOWING:
     Send an Email to HammerDM@fastermail.com to introduce yourself and provide
Hammer with a short Bio of your managerial successes/failures and favorite/least
favorite fighting styles; with a listing of your active stable/stables for Hammer to
verify in the online newsletters.
     Hammer will choose the 2 prospective Probates for membership in the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe on the basis of who he decides will be most suited [to
Hammer's purposes as the T-Tribe Captain!] from among those responding to this All
Arena Ad on a first response/first acceptance or rejection basis!
     -- Hammer; Vendetta Cartel Captain/WordSmith and WeaponSmith of the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe
