"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players.  They have their 
exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts." -- William 
Shakespeare from 'As You Like It'

     Hammer watched the results of his Ah Tongues Of Fire guild from a secluded 
vantage point in Seam Arena, before employing his Elven Orb of Transport to make a 
surprise visit to Hammerz Flowered Shoppe near Morya Arena.
     Violet, Daisy and Rose were busy preparing orders as the veteran manager made his 
sudden, dramatic entrance inside their establishment.
     "I have urgent matters to attend to," explained the veteran manager, "and I have 
no idea as to when I will return to Morya Arena!  I trust the three of you to make 
sure things continue to run smoothly here!"
     The Half-Elf Triplets said their appropriate 'Good Byes!' with assurances that 
the Flowered Hammerz guild would be well taken care of during his absence.
     "I must return to Seam Arena and my Tongues Of Fire Resort for some final 
preparations, before I must embark on a journey of Great Importance!"
     Then the veteran manager went into a secluded room deep beneath the Hammerz 
Flowered Shoppe to procure an item most vital to his journey, before employing his 
Elven Orb of Transport yet another time: to shift and flow between time, space and 
dimensions; returning to Seam Arena and the celebrations that were ongoing at his 
Tongues Of Fire Resort.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly MORYA games.  Former top team FORCE OF FIVE was 
unseated this week as THE ANIMANIACS moved up from 10th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon DIZNEE this time out 
who this turn suffered a fall into 7th position in the wake of a 1-4-0 round.  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
THE ANIMANIACS went 3-2-0 to move up 9 in the rankings.  My praise to BASH BROS BODY 
for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round 
deserving of notice!  PINK SHIRT caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested SPRAIN and was awarded 30 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, PINK SHIRT put down SPRAIN, causing him to 
lose 25 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, DRUNKEN DONUT has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory 
fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail THE HIEROPHANT, Duelmaster of MORYA!  
Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole 
city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city MORYA.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in MORYA these 
days is NORTHERN BADLANDS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding NORTHERN BADLANDS.  Indeed it was OTTO'S MECHANICS.  Loose talk 
at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after BRIAR STEM HAMMER.  Watch your back!  I cannot but express pride for the 
fearlessness of WHITE DEVIL who cast caution to the winds and challenged THE 
HIEROPHANT, a fighter 29 points higher.  Truth to tell, WHITE DEVIL did not come out 
of the fight a winner, but he managed to capture much attention, gaining 4 in 
recognition.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  HUB CAPP has sworn to take up religion 
upon living to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing 
indeed!  My hearty congratulations STUMBLE DUCK, for thy revenge upon SONNY ROOF, 
slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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

Morya -- Not that anyone should really care, but Hub Capp leaves us as a 14(2)-16(1)-
15-9(2)-19(2)-7-11 TP, Longspear fave, VL/LO rhythm, and learns defence.  Total Skills 
should be at 62 at the moment, with his AdEx in Parry, and Expert in Defence picked up 
this last turn (either -1 or -2).  Noteworthy item in his development is that he was 
3-9 vs other TPs here in Morya, so if it weren't for that, his record would probably 
look a lot better.  -- Crip, mgr of Otto's Mechanics

P.S. Thanks again for running the Morya Madness, so long ago!  Was awesome.
