Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters. It seems so recently people were saying JUST PLAIN BAD was washed up, finished. But 3-0-0 moved them up 1. I guess they're washed no more... What's with HOMEOPATHY? She actually beat THE A'S -- LOSERS II's STEINBACH, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight. Major screwup at THE A'S -- LOSERS II. SIERRA lost 16 points to VISITING ORC. Some new strategies, perhaps? Maybe SIERRA will provide more easy wins... Try as he might, M. CHARDINEE wasn't good enough at persuading DARK STAR to step down from the Duelmaster's throne... Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on? I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners. No matter the time or place, men will always duel. Warriors of IAYE unite. You have only your games to lose! VISITING ORC of IAYE got 0 points for removing another young punk. Tough luck, GAMEHENDGE! Someone told THE WIND that RED DOG GANG never Bloodfeuded, that it'd have an easy kill. Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right sorry. How long have I been here? I got people to see, places to go... Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors. Any plans here? IAYE is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places. Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.

Of course, you're a cat, and cats tend toward the devious even without cause.... 22 October 2004 Youngblood's Three and Out Contest I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what I think will be an awesome contest. If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before, here is your chance. The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see fit to run in the contest. So now that I have your attention, here are the rules (like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later). 1. Any manager participating can enter one team, only. 2. No sandbagging whatsoever. (I will keep up with it, every turn.) 3. No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts. 4. All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are eliminated. 5. If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest. This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of the contest. 6. If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the contest. 7. If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is active in the contest. 8. If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the contest, no questions asked. 9. Challenges are legal, up or down. 10. Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that warrior, of course, is accounted the winner. 11. All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be awarded to the winners of the contest. <<<PRIZES>>> As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded to the first and second place managers. So the majority and minority of the rollups will be determined when all are accumulated. Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be a fierce and challenging contest. <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE CONTEST IS DECEMBER THE FIRST, AND AS I SAID BEFORE, THE TURN BEFORE (NOVEMBER 17TH) YOU MAY DARK ARENA CHALLENGE ONLY!!! ANY WARRIOR WITH ANY FE (FIGHT EXPERIENCE) WHEN THE CONTEST STARTS WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE CONTEST. YOUNGBLOOD of WENSINWASIN 11 November 2004 All you alliance-type people, I'm trying (again!) to get my alliance listing correct and up to date. Either send me a diplo (address it to The Saint) or send your updates to me directly at Sue at solberg-mathews.com. As you may guess, replace the at with @ and you're good to go (I do hate spammy mail and this will end up on the web). I have information on the following alliances: ADIO, Allied Axis, Armada, Brotherhood of Justice, Brotherhood of the Blade, Cadre, CDC, Chaos, Inc., Circle of Order, Company of Brothers, Consortium, Council of Lords, Couple Good Guys, Crimson Vengeance, DOA, DOOMcorps, Enigmafia, Eurosquad, Fascist Federation, FONZ, Frothingslosh Syndicate, GAPPDA, Homeland Alliance, IT Alliance, Jingoists, kLk, Knights of the Covenant, LBA, League Arcane, Legion6, Living Essences, Lords and Ladies of Darkness, Manic Union, Midnight Foundation, Minions of Diana, Monarchs of Montezuma, NCA, NIMROD, R.A.G.E., Seventh Sons, The Firm, The French Connection, Vendett@ United, and the Vendetta Cartel. If you are a member of one of these alliances, let me know. If you are a member of some other alliance that isn't listed, let me know. If you were at any point in your past a part of one of these alliance but are now independent, also let me know. Going inactive doesn't mean you get removed from this list; people are assumed to still be in the same alliance when they return. Even having everyone in an alliance go inactive doesn't change anything. If an alliance is officially disbanding, that's another thing you have to let me know.... The Saint, keeper of lists P.S. If you already responded to my online plea (and I replied), you can ignore this. 17 November 2004 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: (P-ad declarations in parenthesis) [Manager name/Stable name in brackets] followed by their last known W/L recognition ranking Rippers Category Now Closed for Hammer Run as of T-475 01.

Porkey LR (T-463) [Kellog/Pig Battalion] 2-3-0,9 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! Additional Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups Gift Cert Prizes: Five (5) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager whose warrior claims the Duelmaster Throne on T-500. 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 their graduation announcement on T-500. One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed in the Top Warrior Of Each Style newsletter announcement on T-500. One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the Chartered Recognition Leader on T-500. One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the Unchartered Recognition Leader on T-500. One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the Popularity Leader on T-500. One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as This Week's Favorite on T-500. One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose stable is listed as The Current Top Team on T-500. One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose stable is listed as the Number One Team On The Move Point Gainer on T-500. One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose stable is listed as the Top Career Honors Chartered Team on T-500. One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose stable is listed as the Top Career Honors Unchartered Team on T-500. 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.
