                                   HAMMERZ HERALD
          Maximillian's Morya Madness Round Twenty Two Edition/DM 28 T-249
                                      by Hammer

         He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that
poverty shall come upon him. -- Proverbs 28:22 Amplified Bible

     LADY MARTILYO LISTENED INTENTLY AS GIMLEE PROCEEDED TO TELL HER STORY about how
she came into the service of Hammer.
     The beautiful Elven servant girl was actually a freed person, but her personal
debt to Hammer was so ingrained in her heart that she considered herself to be a life
long servant to the Veteran Manager who was responsible for gaining her freedom.
     Lady Martilyo and GimLee were safely secreted in the catacombs beneath the
Hammerz Flower Garden Morya Manor Estate on the Lake; hidden far below the Crimson
Ascension Temple where Lady Martilyo now spent most of her time as the High Priestess
and Healer of the Crimson Ascension Temple.
     She still took time to oversee her FILIPINA LADYZ stable of women warriors, but
Hammer had given her a direct order; actually an impassioned plea, to guard GimLee
from the threat of a bygone terror that had risen its ugly head and whose presence
could be felt lurking somewhere beyond the borders of Morya and the current Madness.
     This is the tale of BluddGrinn the [Mysterious] Darkling Dwarf who founded the
Dwarfs Militia and how one Hammer and a band of his friends came to liberate those
who were enslaved by The Dark Spot Cult.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of MORYA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team OTTO'S MECHANICS was 
unseated this week as THE WARLORDS II moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which LADZ 
OF LUGBURZ managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw 
challengers!  CLAIR BLUE HAIR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as she skillfully bested LADY MARIA and was awarded 23 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, LE NETTOYE' put down BAD MOON RISING, causing him 
to lose 18 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, PEG-LEG BOUCHARD has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail ALARIC, Duelmaster of MORYA!  
Would you believe that over half of the old women in MORYA seem to feel that they 
could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In MORYA "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  MORYA, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is BAD GERMS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Apparently the stalwarts of MAGICAL MADNESS are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  RAY D AYTOR take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in MORYA.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this 
week, it seems that EROTIC EEEK posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
NJORD.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand EROTIC EEEK was defeated by NJORD. 
Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  I must report the passing of LADY MARIA, 
veteran of many duels.  9-13-1 final record Hers was not illustrious--but death plays 
no favorites.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is 
sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in MORYA.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

It's funny, my guys got challenged four times, they all won, and the last one lost.
So I hope more unwise challenges are made, because I didn't receive this turn in time
to challenge or avoid.... -- Le Pentarque

Assur -- Aujald is not gross, he is BIG ("gros")!  But yes he's been using some
antibiotics!

Madness Maniacs -- As the Madness sweeps into the New Year may you all enjoy the
stretch run and friendly competition of the final six rounds! -- Hammer

Fizban -- No Blood Feud this round!  Just did NOT get around to it! -- Hammer
P.S.  Glad to hear you were excited about my return to the Madness, my brother!

Madness Maniacs -- TYGER LILY HAMMER was a 9-9-10-17-17-5-17 Ripper who will be
replaced by GOLDENROD HAMMER in the Plunger category of the Madness whenever I get
around to sending in the replacement! -- Hammer

Maximillian -- It's Great to be Back in the Madness, my brother! -- Hammer
P.S.  Thanks for the candle!

Hengist -- Anything else I can do for you?  Except lose.... -- Wasteland Warlord

Idiotic Iccers -- I thought you might have learned the first time round with Kooky.
Let me guess, Responsiveness tactic???  All it did was get your nice little Striker
killed. -- Nyall Bloodgrin

Hammer -- Good to see you back, my friend. -- Maximillian and the Badlanders

Camshaft -- Uhm...just put that down as a large mistake, I don't think Max will allow
too many more of those. -- Wasteland Warlord

Shaguk -- Seems like my rhythm was better in the beginning, must remember that one.
What's with all my losses coming from my own people? -- Maximus Decimus

Morya -- Someone let me win pleeeaase, I believe this might *sniff* be my last
chance.... -- Bulwyf Redhammer

Lady Consolacion -- Am I supposed to be comforted?  I'm not.  This is no way for me
to start an adventure! -- Young Joan

Bad (erp!) Moon Rising -- You need to (erp!) rise more (erp!) slowly, boy.  (erp!)
(erp!) Patience (erp!) is the (erp!) key. -- Wyatt Burp

Bulwyf Redhammer -- You need to TRY a hammer, maybe.  Or is it your wife's hammer?
Sometimes these old names can be surprising.  What I see is "the red hammer of the
bull's wife."  Okay, maybe that's not what YOU see in the name, but I don't speak
that language, see? -- Nightwind the long-winded

Anne Tenna -- It was amazing the way you kept picking up these messages from out of
the air, telling you how to defeat me expeditiously.  Would you care to go
adventuring with us?  I'm sure your talent would be useful. -- Redwind

The Convicted Thief's a wimpy runt.  Or maybe a runty wimp. -- Blunt Arrow

Ghost Chant -- I'm a werecat, yes, but not actually Arauki.  They were all Ratani
originally, you know.  And I guess some Ratani with the shape-changer blood didn't
leave the south when the Aruaki did.  (shrug)  In fact, not until they married into
my tribe of Rirorni, the Maengedai. -- Blunt Arrow
P.S.  But there are a lot of werecats here in Morya.  Uh, make that, "some, more than
one."  Counting me, I see four on the list of warriors we've fought since July.  I
guess that isn't really a lot, but sometimes it feels like it.
P.P.S.  You know how cats like to wander.

Liam the Goth -- Whether or not you get bored after death depends on what you DO with
your afterlife.  There are many absorbing possibilities, you know. -- Uncle Wolf,
shaman

Peg-Leg Bouchard -- A lot closer than I would have expected, but you still get the
victory.  Perhaps this time, I'll find myself faced off against a much easier
opponent.... -- Rhinovirus

Mystic Zealot -- We really don't like you! -- Bad Germs

Frogger -- I desire to squish you like a bug!  What'll your manager send at me this
time?  Perhaps this time I'll also get a high score and not have to regret you and
your stupid machines giving the ole game over message! -- Giardia

Erotic Eeek -- What's wrong?  Can't see straight?  Awwww, too bad! -- Conjunctivitis

CBA -- You definitely shouldn't have gotten up in the morning!

Max -- GREAT AD!  Loved it every time I've read it! -- Assur

Fizban -- Looks like we may see the wind changing.  Your basher may finally get over
.500 while one of mine may drop down to .500.  Like I said, though, if I get a third
place finish with either one of mine, I'll be more than satisfied. --
Assurnasirbanipal

Maximillian -- After that long winded, albeit entertaining personal ad, I am fully
convinced you were slashed out of your mind after drinking all the beer but with such
entertaining ramblings, how can I stay mad? -- Fizban
P.S.  Your beer's in your belly, Max.

Ray D Aytor -- Next time check your fluid level first, grease monkey.  Hee, hee, hee.
-- Alaric

Dragon Fire -- You think mere dragonfire can defeat me, the semi-mighty Hengist. --
Hengist

Mr Chomp Chomp -- My apologies.  Apparently I forgot my place. -- Cleo

Construct -- That was exciting wasn't it. -- Caesar

Tyger -- My humblest apologies.  Brother or not I await your vengeance.  It would
serve me right for overstepping my own ability. -- Napoleon

Zaxxen -- Our fight was as fun as your namesake.  Good fight.  Sorry about the DC. --
Ghost Chant

Frail Freebird -- Well, you were much nicer our second dance.  What to do, that strat
didn't work.  Good match. -- Paper Flowers

Blunt Arrow -- A Ghost Dancer + a Ghost Chanter = a wild night out. -- Liam the Goth

Hammer -- The south side, more marching for the guys than they would like, but it
should be good for them.  As soon as I get some more info on a few things, I'll get
the next spot out.  Have some writing work to do in 62 with a friend and in 11 to
bring my story full circle with one more spot in 6.  More writing than I would like

but my friends and I are big AD&D fans and role-playing is so fun.  I'm moving my
main operation to Morya, so I should be here as long as I play this wonderful game.

Ashzag -- No!  It's not true.  I have never faced a foe in my tub. -- Clair

                       Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups
                                  Hosted by Hammer

     Niytyole Island DM 33 has dwindled to the point where as of T-482 [duedate
November 3, 2004] there were only 2 active stables listed with 3 inactive stables in
a once thriving and lively regular arena.
     During the past 40+ cycles Hammer has been hosting the Hammer Run for the Roll
Ups in DM 33.
     Thus far only the Ripper and Slasher categories have produced winners to claim
the 5 New Team Roll Ups Prize for being the first declared Style Master of their
respective categories to graduate.
     Every contending stable has gone inactive for one reason or another, including
CASINO HAMMERZ, over the past several months.
     Now DM 33 faces the harsh reality that if RSI chooses to close any arenas due to
little or no interest, Niytyole Island could very well head the list of endangered
regular arenas!
     In an effort to preserve his beloved island, Hammer is announcing the
continuation of the Hammer Run for the Roll Ups; combined with the Hammer 500 which
will conclude both contests on T-500 [duedate July 13, 2005] should DM 33 continue to
remain open in the coming months.
     Attention Hammer Runners!
     The Hammer Run is for 0 FE Basic Arena Warriors ONLY.  Participants MUST Be
Declared in the P-ads On or Before their First DM 33 Basic Arena Fight to Qualify as
a Hammer Runner!  Winners of Each Category will receive 5 New Team Roll Up Gift
Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  [On the condition that they
Graduate on or before T-500; see amended rules below!]
     The following Style Master categories remain open with a listing of how many
declared contestants are still entered and their W/L recognition record at the time
of their disappearance from the Hammer Run competition:

     As you can plainly see, the Hammer Run is still wide open in several categories,
depending upon whether or not the deactivated stables are reactivated for the Hammer
500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups contest!
     Any declared warrior who succeeds in graduating by T-500 will win 5 New Team
Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  Gift Certs will be
awarded as soon as possible upon official graduation if the graduation occurs prior
to T-500.
     On T-500 the highest ranked ACTIVE declared warrior in the category(s) without a
Graduate will win 2 New Team Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of
Hammer!

     Two (2) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed
as the highest Active Challenger Champion, Champion, Challenger Adept, Adept,
Challenger Initiate and Initiate on T-500.
     In the event that NO Duelmaster is seated upon the Duelmaster Throne on T-500
there will be Three (3) Gift Certs awarded to the managers whose Active warriors are
tied for recognition points at the Top of the Challenger Champions recognition
standings.  [Therefore, the Top CC will be awarded 3 Gift Certs instead of 2 for
being ranked as the highest CC on T-500].
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) graduate on
T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) receive

     SHOULD RSI CHOOSE TO CLOSE DM 33 PRIOR TO T-500 ONLY THE HIGHEST ACTIVE DECLARED
STYLE MASTER CONTESTANTS WILL BE AWARDED TWO (2) GIFT CERTS AND ALL OTHER PRIZE
CATEGORIES WILL BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID BY HAMMER!!!!!!!!!
     The purpose of this contest is to restore DM 33 to a lively and entertaining
arena!
     Hammer is willing to foot the Prize bill in a last ditch effort to save Niytyole
Island from deletion if RSI and the Gladiatorial Commission decide that more arenas
need to be closed due to lack of participation and interest.
     Should this effort fail to spare DM 33 from deletion, then Hammer is prepared to
transfer CASINO HAMMERZ to another arena if Niytyole Island is closed by RSI and the
Gladiatorial Commission.

The hotel is located down the freeway in Tempe.  All rooms have high speed internet 
(for an extra charge).  There is a fitness center, jacuzzi, and pool, and of course a 
bar and Mexican restaurant inside the hotel.  And there's Denny's right across the 
street.  Look for transportation info in the tournament information sheet.
     The tournament information sheet/strategy sheet should be out sometime in late 
November/early December. 
     If you haven't been to a Face-to-Face before, you're overdue.  If you have, 
you'll be back.  Don't miss this one, it'll be a blast!  See you there!
