Lamentations
   from Hammer the WordSmith

     It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions
fail not.  -- Lamentations 3:22

My apologies for not writing a regular Team Spot for this Arena 28 newsletter For I
have been away from my Home Base the past few weeks.  My prayer is that those who
have been ailing are feeling better And that your bones are free from pains and
creaks.

"May Your Blades Be Sharp and Your Wits Sharper!"

Hammer
Minister of War
Crimson Crusader

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Minions of Morya Arena --

     I Am Still Enjoying the View from the Top!
     Venus Trap Hammer is graduating without taking my place up here!
     No Challenges and No Avoids from me this turn, so whosoever was able to get
their Challenge registered with the Gladiatorial Commission is who crossed blades
with me this turn!
     Hopefully I Survive the Challenge to Graduate!

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

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in MORYA this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for DODGE BULLETS, whose 2-3-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 
8th.  FLOWERED HAMMERZ stable has parlayed this turn's 2-3-0 into a 4 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 4th place.  Good work, guys!  The PHANTACITY 
guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, TEZCATLIPOCA fought VALERIAN and 
gained 20 points and contributed to THE PENTARCHY's 3-2-0.  VALERIAN has lost to 
TEZCATLIPOCA, falling 21 points, while helping make STEEL AND SILK a 1-4-0 turn.  
Well done, MORYA, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps 
BLACK ROSE HAMMER is not as thrilled, being challenged 3 times.  CRICTOR UNGERER 
challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone FLOWERED 
HAMMERZ's warrior.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and BLACK 
ROSE HAMMER remains MORYA's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Arthur's 
Last Stand until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the FORCE OF FIVE 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on MORYA, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided FORCE OF FIVE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was SONS 
OF MARS.  Anyone surprised?  BOOMERANG of FORCE OF FIVE had better have a good reason 
for challenging down 10 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought BOOMERANG 
showed great skill and promise when he bested MADELINE.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Roslynn -- It was a pleasure taking all you had to offer.  I just love collecting. --
Taxes
P.S.  I suppose my 6-3 in Rookies at Orlando helped.  It was fun, but I was almost
voted out of law!

Pop Target -- I suppose you simply did not dodge enough.  Better luck next time. --
Accrued Interest

Lizard -- I was kind of proud of that one.  Who says turtles aren't superior to
lizards? -- Postage

My Generation -- Kudos!  Great point gain!  Well done. -- Finance Manager and The
Expense Accounts

Welcome everyone.  It is nice to see the new teams coming to Morya.  May your stay be
long and prosperous. -- All Us Expense Accounts

Hammer -- Loved the spot!  Really glad to have you back. -- Finance Manager and
Consortiumites everywhere

Hey, everyone!  Don't miss the upcoming Turf War in DM47.  Many of you have
participated before and it is a blast! -- A special ad from The Great And Wonderful
Oz

Time to part, alas!  I'm very happy, though, to leave after a (quite nasty) victory
against my nemesis Anferrous.  Being the popularity leader is also something to be
proud of. -- Crictor Ungerer

With the holidays going on, I'm not sure my guys will be able to fight this turn,
but, if not, don't worry... they will be back for the turn 324! -- Le Pentarque

Condolences for Blood Hawk.  We met him so many times he was almost a friend. -- LP

All -- Okay, that last turn was flat embarassing!  My only win came via a standby?!
Congrats again Black Rose on holding the throne, but shame on you for dealing death
to the Top Dodge Bullets warrior!  A hearty welcome to my generation, and Jester

Crowd if you're staying.  I wish I could have been at the Facer, Hammer, but alas, it
was only account difficulties that caused the lapse.  Until next time! -- Michael
Eldritch

Crictor Ungerer -- I knew that the third time was yours.  *sigh*  Have fun on the
Isle. -- Anferrous

Patte de Saguar -- Ahh, so THAT's my weak side. -- Pyrite

M. Chardinee -- Next time I'll break ya in half, ya tosser! -- Valerian

Poison Ivy Hammer -- I've learned a lot in my first four fights, not the least of
which is how to lose.  *wry grin* -- Garrot

Venus Trap Hammer -- I see now why you have those two Ks!  But I'm partial to my
head. -- Scarlet

Tezcatlipoca -- Thank you for the skills but know I still hate you! -- Chandalen

White Bect -- Sorry about those broken bones.  I got a little carried away there. --
Cascella

Boomerang -- That was a fluke!  Swing around and get in line again! -- Theriault

Cincinnatus -- That is not acceptable!  We're going to get together again after your
bloodfeud is over. -- Jennsen

Morya Maniacs -- I have been away from Home Base the past month and have not read the
fight sheets fom the previous turn!  Therefore my P-ads will be briefer than usual
for this newsletter! -- Hammer

Finance Manager the Consortium Affiliate -- I Am Indeed THE HAMMER who hung around
the Red Dragon Inn of whom you enquire!  Glad you enjoyed the Spot and I look forward
to writing future Spots for the enjoyment of everyone here! -- Hammer the Mora MadMan

Dodge Bullets and Sons Of Mars etc -- The appropriate flowers have been sent by
GimLee to commemorate your slain warriors! -- Hammer

Chandalen -- I avoided no one this turn, nor did I challenge anyone!  Perhaps you
were able to cross blades with me this turn?  Hopefully I survive to graduate! --
Black Rose Hammer

D'Haran Empire -- Thanks for the Greeting!  Our Bloody Blades Await Your Bloody
Blades! -- Flowered Hammerz

Jorja -- Understandable about the Time Constraints!  My Apologies for the loss of
Blood Hawk last turn!  I usually restrain from challenging your warriors, but it
seemed to be the best choice for a challenge to get Black Rose Hammer graduated
without dying! -- Hammer

Morya Maniacs -- I was unable to list the particulars of Venus Trap Hammer because I
have been far removed from my post office box and am reading the Arena 28 newsletter
online! -- Hammer

Postage -- Okay, I have to admit that I underestimated your expense and ran out of
funds.  No more next-day air -- it's USPS ground only here on out. -- Lizard

Thorn Stem Hammer -- I knew you were soft in the belly -- no thorns there! --
Sabretooth

Briar Patch -- You really gave Jughead a scare at the start of that slugfest but I
think you'd better bring a bigger axe next time! -- Dr. Doom

Theriault -- You didn't show me much there.  I think all that armor is slowing you
down but your boss suited you up in that tin can to keep you from dying young.  Smart
move. -- Boomerang

Brz -- What, is it cold in here!  I personally like it on the hotter side. --
Electric Boogaloo

Bocni -- Thanks for taking me to funky town! -- Funky Chicken

Publius Claudius -- I'm thinking maybe my pearly whites blinded you! -- Colgate Smile

Titus Torquatus -- Didn't think paintball pellets could kill!  I guess we found out
otherwise.  RIP. -- Paintball Junky

Morya -- Thanks for the fine welcome to your fair arena!  Never expected that good a
start, but, hey, I'll take it.  I'm sure you guys won't be so friendly in the future,
but I look forward to crossing blades and chatting with everyone soon.  See ya on the
sands! -- Storm Lord, mgr. My Generation

Black Rose Hamm -- Oh, well, those grapes were sour anyway. -- Ghost of Blood Hawk

Porcupine -- Seems to me I heard someone say you porcupines were "fretful."  Or
something like that.  It doesn't show. -- Madeline

My, that Ambitious Guard is a big fellow, but you know what they say:  the bigger
they are, the harder they fall. -- Cloudrider

Marcus Marcellu -- Didn't your daddy teach you anything except fighting? -- Lily of
Sarmatia

Accrued Interes -- You don't get any interest from me, bub.  The less I see of you,
the happier I'll be, eh? -- Pop Target

Our congratulations to Crictor Ungerer and Venus Trap Hammer. -- Jorja and Dodge
Bullets

     Some managers have attempted to send personals and columns to hal, and hal has
been refusing to acknowledge their content.  I don't know what hal's problem is,
specifically, but for best success, send PLAIN TEXT (dot txt) in the body of the
email.  Not attachments.  Thank you. -- the Editor

POSTED:  Arena recruitment effort, DM 32, Arvat -- seeing as our arena Participation
has dwindled in recent months, we're offering the following incentive to any new
teams looking for a new home arena.  We will GIVE a Free Rollup to any manager
willing to agree to fight in Arvat for the next 10 turns.  We have a number of VERY
solid arena teams stockpiled, and while we don't promise tournament godlings, we are
certain we can come up with teams with 3, 4 or even 5 solid arena warriors to start
out with.
     In addition we'll honor any no-challenge requests by relatively new managers to
help you get off on the right foot.
     If interested, please contact the Devil Advocates via Diplo or contact
theDarkOne via IM on the www DOT reality DOT com site.  We will even give a choice of
teams available if requested.
