                                The Story of Crusher

     Suicide met Crusher at the town Convent beating a man down with a small club.
After the beating Crusher went back inside and Suicide followed.
     Suicide stood by the single door as Crusher went behind the altar and turned to
the crowd.
     "All will be sent to heaven, even if I gotta beat you there."  He pointed to a
woman and her eyes almost bulged from her head.  "See, the devil fears the lord and I
will beat him out of whoever he enters."
     The crowd applauded and Crusher continued his sermon as Suicide rubbed his chin
from under his cloak.
     After the crowd left, Suicide went into Crusher's chamber.  "I could use you to
cast demons out from the arenas."
     Crusher looked Suicide up and down.  "I don't quite follow."
     "Simple really," Suicide said.  "When my warriors enter the arena I want those
who oppose us to feel the wrath of your words and make them understand."
     "You sound good, but I still don't follow your meaning."
     "Those who oppose me are evil!"
     Crusher's eyes narrowed.  "I will go with you and bash the evil from them,"
Crusher said.  "And do it with pleasure and understanding."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of STORMCROWE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  There were bitter words at A DEAL'S 
DEAL's guildhouse after a 0-5-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 10th. 
Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week MORDRED'S MADMEN went 3-2-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  Did 
only my eyes note the 3-0-0 record which SUPERIOR FORCES managed to post this round?  
I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  MYTHING LINK caught the eye 
of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested WRECKER and was 
awarded 17 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KHALHUMS 
DWARF put down DAGORA SAVON, causing her to lose 14 points of recognition in the 
process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on HOT LIPS as she 
bore arms against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster ZINDELLA AZRON.  Not for 
nothing has ZINDELLA AZRON in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and 
this week she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources 
claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed 
weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city STORMCROWE.  STORMCROWE, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of 
thy guilds is EMETICS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Apparently the stalwarts of AVID FANS are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  THE SMELL OF IT take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in STORMCROWE.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of 
KOTHAS JAPFIN who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 9 points below in 
the rankings.  I thought KOTHAS JAPFIN showed great skill and promise when it 
defeated TECHNICDOR YAWN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one 
reward--death.  This past week DOOR # 3, at 5-11-1, departed STORMCROWE forever.  
Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in STORMCROWE as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle 
walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

Omnimancer -- An in-terestin fighter.  I'm sure I could've gotten it killed, once or
twice.  A tight rein would seem obvious...um? -- Applejack

Boom Boom -- Looks like it just...ain't your day.  You has met the Whim of Whammy and
it's mighty glad to make your acquaintance we is, too. -- Flamin Florrie

Francine Kruger -- That one's worth mullin over. -- Concertina

Vor'iev Tavers  -- New generation, eh?  I kind of like it, (not you) but let's hold
off judgment until we see what your contemporaries think. -- Jill

Near Myth -- Disgustatory.  But, welllll pull up and swap honors any old time. --
Door # 3

Kothas Japfin -- (sitting up wearily)  Thanks for not burying me in the sand to add
insult to injury.  Oooooh, I feel awful, and I'll bet it will be worse when the
numbness wears off.... -- Frostbite

Swingandamyth -- You Karnhorn!  Take that, and THAT!  YES! -- Walrus, driven to a
frenzy for some unknown reason (it isn't that he usually LIKES Karnhorns, you
understand, but this vehemence is new)

Myth Ology -- I used to date a girl with that name.  Astra Ology, quite the starry-
eyed beauty, and a lot of fun when the moon was full.  Any kin of yours? -- Shard

Technicdor Yawn -- Weird name, that.  I just couldn't concentrate on the fight, what
with the Commission having made a weird spelling error in MY name, and me feeling not
quite the thing, and all that stuff. -- Frostflare
P.S.  Err, try to control that wild attraction to me, okay?  It's not that I have
anything personal against Orcesses, and I know I'm fantastically Attractive, but if I
can't keep my lunch down around you, well, that wouldn't make much of a date, would
it?

Jane the Ripper -- You nasty Orc!  I always KNEW you people were barbarous and
violent!  Hateful! -- Icelinia
P.S.  Shameless, too, just FLAUNTING yourself like that in front of everybody.

Hot Lips -- Managers are the pits, aren't they?  I'm sure we could do better without
them. -- Sunflash
P.S.  The important thing is to have survived to graduate at all, so who cares about
a final loss?

A Talent Scout -- The way my head was aching, I'm surprised I remembered to show up
at the arena at all.  And I wish I hadn't.  But Sunflash's going-away party was good,
very good, and even the hangover wasn't too much to pay. -- Shard

Kothas Japfin -- "Chow"?  Are you offering to buy me dinner? -- Icelinia, looking
arch

Abraxis II -- Don't read too much into my style!  My manager is the original "don't-
care" type. -- Frostbite

Goat -- I've thought of sending you stuff on rippers more than once since you asked,
and something always seems to intervene.  At one point I even set aside a stack of
ripper fights for one or the other of us to look over, though where they are right
now....  (sigh)  It's been a confusing summer.  I have not forgotten, though.  If I
can get it organized in time, I'll see about getting them to send you the Ripper
thing I did for Noblish Island, as a start; it's got most of what I know about the
style. -- Jorja

All -- Just look at my team MOJO P@TROL.  Damn I'm proud of them.  They went 5 for 5.
Wow.  They sure have learned a lot.  CFH taught them a lot along with myself.  I'm
giving them a big pat on the back.  Great job guys.  The ale is one me.  Hell I'm
buying for the whole town.  Now how is that.  That is all. -- VooDoo

All -- Thanks for everyone's support of your new Duelmaster.  I'll try to be a
respectful leader for us all.  I'm Team Leader and spokeswoman for Mojo P@trol when
VooDoo is not around.  Right now he is off gallivanting around in some swamp, and has
eyes for some swamp dwelling xoxxxx.  He needs to get back.  I miss him.  Later. --

                            Invitation to Newbie Managers
                                 by Hammer

     As a Captain of the Vendetta Cartel, Hammer has recently dissolved the Vendetta
Cartel Crimson Ascension Family.  Lady Martilyo and Rook are NO LONGER members of the
Vendetta Cartel.
     The Vendetta Cartel is divided into "Families" under the leadership of Captains;
who have been appointed by the VC God Father known throughout the dueling land as
Master Darque.
     Hammer is now the Captain of the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe and the veteran
manager extends an invitation for prospective membership as a Probate [ONLY 2 Probate
positions are available in the VC Tarantula Tribe at the present time!] to any Newbie
Manager who qualifies under the following conditions:
     1. Newbie Manager MUST have Online Access for Email communications!  [Hammer is
presently living in Qatar and Lieutenants Maximillian and Firehawk are living in
Canada; so Email Communication is a MUST for consideration!]
     2. Newbie Manager MUST have the time and funds to create 2 new stables to be
placed in 2 separate Slow Arenas [the cost of running 1 stable in a Regular Arena!]
to actively participate on a monthly basis with the other 3 T-Tribe members of the
Vendetta Cartel!
     3. Newbie Manager MUST have the DESIRE to be an Active Member of the Vendetta
Cartel as a Tarantula Tribe trainee aka Probate; developing his/her managerial skills
under the mentorship of Hammer and the other VC members; thus proving themselves
worthy to become Vendetta Cartel Lieutenants in the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe!
     The Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe lives by the Feud; thereby prospective
Probates are forewarned that membership guarantees instant Friends and instant
Enemies!
     Any prospective Probates who 1.) seek to improve their managerial
insights/abilities under the counsel of Hammer and other Vendetta Cartel members 2.)
desire to be active members of an Active Alliance that WILL NOT Dissolve in a Few
Months; building lasting friendships while enjoying Feuding with Common Enemies 3.)
who enjoy sending their gladiators to Tournaments and would strive to see their
manager name listed among the TV and TC winners in the Mailer Tourney Newsletters as
a member of the Vendetta Cartel MUST DO THE FOLLOWING:
     Send an Email to HammerDM@fastermail.com to introduce yourself and provide
Hammer with a short Bio of your managerial successes/failures and favorite/least
favorite fighting styles; with a listing of your active stable/stables for Hammer to
verify in the online newsletters.
     Hammer will choose the 2 prospective Probates for membership in the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe on the basis of who he decides will be most suited [to
Hammer's purposes as the T-Tribe Captain!] from among those responding to this All
Arena Ad on a first response/first acceptance or rejection basis!
     -- Hammer; Vendetta Cartel Captain/WordSmith and WeaponSmith of the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe
