     Well, what are you looking at, IAYE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens before? 
Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  And if variety is the spice of life, IAYE may be 
getting bland, as DARK STAR 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, IAYE?  
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  I 
guess I can give a little credit to THE GOOSE of RUNNERS for challenging up by 18 to 
H. HATRACK.  THE GOOSE won to get 54 points of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for IAYE's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

P.S.  And why do you have seven on each hand?  Twenty-one fingers is too much for
anyone to control.  No wonder they do crazy things.

Walt Weiss -- Given your team name, I'd expect you to lose oftener. -- Freeda
P.S.  But thanks for the skills, anyway.
P.P.S.  And for not killing me, but then the skills would be useless, so what's the
real point in a separate thanks?  Managers are weird.

                       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!
     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 stable is listed as the

     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.

you would like to participate, simply get a team ready in Talcama in the next month
and announce in the personals that you're in.  The prize is bragging rights and
having your name along side previous winners (Doc Steele, Manray Frothingslosh, and
Manager).  It is a brutal contest, but it is a lot of fun!
     Basic rules:  No avoiding other contest teams.  Score = Wins + Kills - Losses.
Only fights against other BR teams count.  First team to 25 wins!
     BR4 begins in Talcama (DM 18) on turn 502, due on Jan 29, 2005.
