                             Notes from the arena champ.

To Every One Striving to Attain the Niytyole Island Duel Master Throne!

     Once again it has been proven as to what Hammer and countless other Managers
say:  "You Do Not Die When You Do Not Lose!" and "You Do Not Score a Kill When You Do
Not Win!"
     BEER BELLY the Basher learned that lesson the hard way according to what was
posted in the online DM 33 newsletter!
     Once again Hammer has NOT received the T-473 newsletter with my victory over my
fallen foe!
     Although Hammer has received the T-242 newsletter with my victory over LADY
KALDRA that was quite satisfactory from the viewpoint of my Veteran Manager!  Hammer
considers himself fortunate for me to have not only bested a gladiator managed by The
Greek Guy, but to have retained the DM 33 DM Throne with the turnabout in our one
minute fight!
     Hammer figures if I am able to retain the DM 33 Duel Master Throne one more time
that I will be Guaranteed my Graduation Notice to the Isle of the Eye!
     Hammer also has a Greater Appreciation for me as a Warrior because I scored my
Second Kill before Graduating.  My first Kill came early when I was an Initiate, but
the information is stored somewhere in Oklahoma and Hammer does Not remember if it
was one of Kellog's warriors that I clocked or some other misfortunate soul who was
Unable to Take an Arm Hit early in my career!
     Obviously I survived the Blood Feud and have had more than my fair share of
visits to the Infirmary!
     The View from the Top gets Better and Better with every Victory!
     Wedding Bells are Ringing for me and my Beloved MAHATSAWD who is busy training
me for another Defense of my DM 33 Title so I can get Graduated, Married and then
pursue WILD CARD HAMMER over in DM 106 to prove who is the Best CASINO HAMMERZ
Ripper!
     Now Who Will Be the Next Victim?

-- LUCKY LADY HAMMER/Current Duel Mistress of Niytyole Island

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, NIYTYOLE ISLAND?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, FOOD FIGHT, since 
ARENA FELINES took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  ARENA FELINES 
turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see LIONESS win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, LIONESS beat IRON 
CHEF and IRON CHEF lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like NIYTYOLE 
ISLAND has some guts at least, LUCKY LADY HAMMER the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as STRAY takes 
the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and 
bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their 
fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  LUROCIANS II was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was FOOD FIGHT.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for NIYTYOLE 
ISLAND's morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what 
brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the NIYTYOLE ISLAND arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens

Hammer Runners -- Looks like LUCKY LADY HAMMER is well on her way to Graduation since
she managed to score a Kill vs. BEER BELLY the Basher!  All she needs to accomplish
is to Continue Winning!  After all, a Warrior will NOT Die if said Warrior Continues
to Win! -- Hammer

16 June 2004
                             Death Fest Begins July 29/DM 59 T-172

     "You drive a hard bargain Hammer," responded Lord Lian Ki Na-Sul, "but the
Gladiatorial Commission has agreed to re-open DM 58 Delarq Tor as a Slow Arena
exclusively for a period of six months to those Death Fest contestants who fight
their stables at least 67 times out of a possible 75 during the 15 rounds of Death
Fest; on the condition that at least 20 stables qualify for the Illis Iron Stable
Award at the conclusion of the Death Fest and those qualifying managers send a New
Stable to DM 58 Delarq Tor without Cannibalizing their participation in the other
arenas where they have active stables!"
     Hammer felt a certain sense of satisfaction as he studied the ghoulish grin
spreading across the face of Lord Lian Ki Na-Sul; proud Arena Master of the once
dying Illis Arena, as the DM 59 Arena Authority signed the Gladiatorial Commission
papers authenticating the arrangement agreed upon by the two parties presiding.
     "You and the Gladiatorial Commission also drive a hard bargain," Hammer replied
as he reflected upon the prospects of Delarq Tor DM 58 being re-opened as a Slow
Arena with at least 20 New Stables by the Managers who fight their stables at least
67 times out of a possible 75 during the 15 rounds of Death Fest. "I also notice the
clause that for Delarq Tor to be open Exclusively for 6 months to the New Stables
managed by the Illis Iron Stable Award Winners that there must be at least 15 stables
Active each cycle. That is a fair bargain for the opportunity to battle for the
Duelmaster Throne each of those six months before Other New Stables are allowed to
enter Delarq Tor."
     This was a Golden Opportunity for both Veteran and Newbie Managers to pave a new
frontier of Delarq history by qualifying their Death Fest stables in DM 59 with 67
fights out of a possible 75; then for the price of running a stable in a Regular
Arena, continuing to be Active in DM 59 and sending a New Team Roll Up to be a part
of "History in the Making" when Delarq Tor would re-open for its First Turn as a Slow
Arena on November 3rd, 2005.
     Death Fest would conclude on T-186 August 25th, 2005 allowing the Illis Iron
Stable Award Winners enough time to be registered with the Gladiatorial Commission;
whereupon they would be able to submit a New Team Roll Up to the GC to start a New
Stable in Delarq Tor; be able to fight those New Gladiators in the Rookies 2005 Fall
Mailer Tourney; then begin competing for the DM 58 Duelmasters Throne in Delarq Tor
right out of the gate with the November 3rd 2005 T-1 Debut Opening Round.
     Hammer of the First Part had also negotiated with Lord Na-Zul of the Second Part
an agreement that All 10 Dark Arena Monsters and 17 NPCs Characters be re-named by
the Top Ten Death Fest Finishers. [See DM 59 T-171 Newsletter Team Spotlight by
Hammer for the complete listing of Dark Arena Monsters/NPCs and the Official Death
Fest Designation for which Top Ten Finishers re-name which characters!]
     Lord Na-Sul could not hide his delight at the prospects of Death being re-
delivered to his once dying arena during the Delarq Death Fest; the DM 59 Arena
Master agreed that these Death Fest Prizes were but a Small Exchange in Comparison to
the Profits to be made by the local Illis business merchants and surrounding
community from the Anticipated Influx into Illis by the Veteran and Newbie
Managers/Gladiators/Stables seeking to make History in the Delarq Death Fest.
     Nor could Hammer conceal his jubilation regarding the Call Across Alistari being
Answered to Cross Blades and Match Wits with the Devious, the Diabolical, the
Dangerous and the Down Challenging who were being drawn to the Delarq Death Fest to
Fulfill their Delarq Dueling Destiny!
