                           Flowered Hammerz Nearly Hammered
                               by Hammer the WordSmith

     Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their
hand; -- Psalm 149:6

     GimLee put the finishing touches on the Bouquet of Blood Stained Violentte
Violetttes to send to the Dodge Bullets stable for the untimely demise of
Stonewalker.  She had already sent a Blood Stained Black Rose to Theriault of the
D'Haran Empire for slaying Stonewalker.  Red Roses had also been sent to Omega
(manager of the Phantacity stable) and Mars (manager of the Sons Of Mars stable) for
successfully revenging blood feuds!
     The beautiful Shagornan Elf smiled with great satisfaction at the finished
product and breathed a sigh of relief that no more flower arrangements were required
to commemorate any deaths on the Morya Arena sands!  However, she placed some more
orders for the required flowers in case more gladiators were slain in the next series
of arena battles!

    [TIME JUMP]

     ElGon the Half Elf, Grimm Dorr the Warrior Dwarf and Hammer the Morya MadMan had
made their way from the Morya Arena to Hammerz Flowered Shoppe unhindered and unseen
by means of an Elven Staff of Seclusion that ElGon had added to his prized
possessions during his Morya Madness wagering campaign.  The staff had allowed Hammer
and his friends to silently and secretly attend the debut of his Flowered Hammerz
stable without being noticed in their Hammerz Flowered Shoppe Suite atop Morya Arena.
     Hammer was still weak from his ordeal, but the veteran manager had insisted upon
attending the arena fights to view first hand the performances of his Flowered
Hammerz stable.  The trio made themselves comfortable in one of the secret chambers
that Hammer used as a war room of sorts whenever he was secluded away inside his
Hammerz Flowered Shoppe.  Helping themselves to generous tankards of Elven Ginger
Ale, the three friends began their analytical discussion of how the Sisters of the
Sword had fared upon the arena sands.
     "I won a small fortune in gold pieces for wagering that Black Rose Hammer would
seize the Morya Arena Throne," beamed ElGon the Half Elf.  Then he scowled as he
spat, "I would have won much more had she bested blades against that no show
Anferrous!"
     Grimm Dorr let loose a hearty laugh as Hammer smiled, suppressing a laugh
himself, knowing that the Half Elf was always looking to add more gold to his already
abundant Madness Wagerz coffers.
     "She gave her foe Chandalen no quarter!" bellowed the Warrior Dwarf and Hammer
nodded his approval at her successful performance.
     ElGon then praised the performance of Venus Trap Hammer who had garnered him
several more gold pieces, not to mention a mighty fine emerald necklace, for her
victory against Tezcatlipoca.
     This had been especially satisfying for Hammer because the gladiator hailed from
the stable of his long ago friendly competitor Le Pentarque. The veteran manager had
thoroughly enjoyed the performance of his favorite styled gladiator.  Even Grimm Dorr
grunted his satisfactory approval of how the lady warrior had used her weapons wisely
to defeat her opponent before a screaming audience!
     Although ElGon had lost money on Briar Stem Hammer, the Half Elf was not as
disgusted with her performance as was Grimm Dorr.  The Warrior Elf wanted to banish
her to the Dark Arena for her apparent laziness, but Hammer was rather fond of the
Kannar and held to the belief that she would better serve his stable as potential
Blood Feud Bait.
     Next under discussion was Thorn Stem Hammer.  ElGon had covered his bets wisely
enough that he had a marginal profit in spite of her loss.  Grimm Dorr would work
more closely with her to improve her fighting prowess and Hammer was pleased enough
with her entertaining performance.
     Poison Ivy Hammer was another loss of coins for ElGon and he advised a change of
tactics so his wagering purse could bulge more.
     Grimm Dorr also suggested a change of tactics, but Hammer pointed out that she
had almost made it possible for a Blood Feud against Lizard, but had managed to
survive the infirmary nightmare!  "Give her another opportunity," Hammer furrowed his
eyebrows and leaned forward with a twinkle in his eyes, "to see if someone is foolish
enough to slay her in the arena?"

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Minions of Morya Arena --

     I was told that years ago my manager Hammer had a knack for reactivating stables
and being rewarded by one of his gladiators claiming the DM Throne!  Thankfully I was
able to do just that and did not disappoint Hammer for his confidence in my
abilities!
     I salute Chandalen for surviving my onslaught and not going to the infirmary!
Thanks for the part you played in my claiming the DM Throne!  Too bad that Anferrous
went inactive and vacated the Throne without facing me blade to blade!  There is no
guarantee that the previous DuelMaster will have a shot at reclaiming the Throne!
     Not with New Meat on the Throne!
     You wrote that 'the pickings are getting awfully thin up here', but you are no
longer up here on the Morya Arena Throne!  Crictor, your teammate Valerian, Rental
Car and Blood Hawk all have their eye on this Throne!  Not to mention my own teammate
Venus Trap Hammer also desires to take my place up here!
     But this is all a moot point if your manager sent you to the Florida Facer and
you met the same fate that Violet of Flower Power met when she held the Morya Arena
Throne and was slain at the Tempe Facer those many long years ago!
     I Am Enjoying the View from the Top!

-- Black Rose Hammer, the unexpected DuelMistress on the Morya Arena Throne

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MORYA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  SONS OF MARS turned their 3-2-0 turn 
into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  I can just hear all the boasts coming in MY GENERATION's next 
personal ads.  Their first turn they went 4-0-1.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see PATTE DE SAGUAR win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
PATTE DE SAGUAR beat PYRITE and PYRITE lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
BLACK ROSE HAMMER challenged BLOOD HAWK for MORYA's Title this turn, and guess what 
happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, MORYA may be getting bland, as BLACK 
ROSE HAMMER stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am 
I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, MORYA?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  SONS OF MARS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
it looks like FORCE OF FIVE avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, VENUS TRAP HAMMER was 
this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I suspect 
either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but SCARLET has challenged up by 27 in an 
attempt against VENUS TRAP HAMMER.  Not that I'm surprised or anything, but SCARLET 
lost to VENUS TRAP HAMMER, leaving the latter lower for recognition points.  Now 
here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, SHUPALJ challenged up 29 to take on 
LUCIUS SULLA of SONS OF MARS.  And sure, SHUPALJ lost alright, but gained 2 
recognition for his pains.  And pains they may indeed be!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for MORYA's 
morgue.  More variety.  Gee, THE PENTARCHY, ain't it past due for sending LOURDEPATTE 
Dark Arena?  What took ol' '7-10-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  Let's see, 
17-10-0.  Pretty good record for a living warrior.  A sad one though, for a dead one. 
Such is the case for BLOOD HAWK of DODGE BULLETS.  Tsk.  Honor is like a chainmail 
shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me 
on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
