                                Hammer the WordSmith
                                   Minister of War

     "The Lord shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before
your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways."
-- Deuteronomy 28: 7  Amplified Bible

     Previously in Swamp Scribbling:
     An unusually eerie mist was rising from the fetid marshes of the North Fork
swampland as the blood red sun rose once again upon the denizens of the dank.
     The fate of an early riser was unceremoniously sealed as curiosity drew the
unsuspecting one near to a disheveled figure that lay prone upon a charred plank of a
once proud warrior vessel.
     Prone does not necessarily mean unguarded as the swamp echoed the cries of a
slashed throat as a deadly scimitar swipe met its mark amid the early morning mists.
     "Oh! That felt good!"
     Soon the unsuspecting swamplanders would shiver at the discovery that The Red
Haired Infidel had unceremoniously landed upon the shores of their beloved swamp!
     SWAMP BURP HAMMER WAS PRESENTLY lurking around the interior of the swamp where
few others would dare to tread.
     He enjoyed these times of solitude when he was able to leave the rigors of the
arena competition behind like a fading memory; choosing to stalk wild prey among the
denizens of the swamp that few others would bother to hunt for fear of dank danger.
     Whether by accident or by divine design, it was SWAMP BURP HAMMER who found the
decaying carcass of an unfortunate victim near a charred plank of a once proud
warrior vessel.
     "What the [BURP!] is this [BURP!] foul stink?"
     Closer examination revealed the tell tale slice of a deadly scimitar swipe that
had separated the surprised head from its vulnerable throat.
     SomeWhere in the swamp the blade of a deadly scimitar was finding its mark on
yet another unsuspecting victim; marking a tell tale trail of blood in the wake of
The Red Haired Infidel who had a score to settle with old foes!

     Hello there, it is me again for one last time.  I was looking over what I had
written in this spotlight and I realized that I wasn't clear about what was bothering
me.  To those I may have inadvertently offended I apologize.  (Yes, even you
Abraxis.)  To be clear I never said anything about potty humor (Snarky).  I may find
most of it crude and juvenile, but sometimes it does make me laugh.
     What I have a problem with (and this is something I've seen in other arenas over
the last two or three years) is one manager writing a spotlight and assaulting (for
lack of a better word) another manager's persona without permission.  I don't care
how much trash is talked in the personals because that's all it is, talk.  BUT my
persona is who I am here, and what is done to it is (in a sense) done to me.  Then
there is the fact that I pay money to play this game and my persona is just that,
MINE.  The things done to Hammer in a spotlight were just out of control.  I've seen
it before and I'm more than likely to see it again.
     Well, that's my opinion and I'm entitled to it.  This is the last you'll hear
from me until I get my finances in order (no matter what lies Abraxis tells).  Anyone
who wishes to diplo me can find me in Fratsfa (Bleak Legion (364).  Any new manager
who wants help only needs to ask.  (I do know how to play the game when I try.)
Farewell and good luck.

                                                                 The Expatriate

				              "Heathen's Cafe"

     To answer Heathen's question regarding Parry-Lungers:  here is my input:
     Examples:  11-11-9-15-17-6-15 or 9-9-5-17-21-4-15.
     Plungers have WWL, DF, and WT as priority attributes:  in that order.  Since
this is a defensive style with offensive capabilities...PAR and ATT are at a premium
in these attributes.  Would suggest no lower than 15 in DF and WT, and no lower than
17 in WL; SZ is unimportant as long as it's lower than 15; CN...needs some.
     Running Plungers is rather simple:  best Dodge is the game and are equally well-
suited to Lunge and Parry Tactics.  OEs range from VL to HI, while ALs run from LO to
VH.  Most wind up with MO/MO faves.  Fave weapons are:  LO, SH, SS, SC, EP and LS.
Warriors can use the shields for parrying, but none are favorite weapons.
     Armour is negotiable:  ARM or ACM with a Brain Bucket.  Remember though...the
heavier the armour, the more endurance will be burned.  Best to stay within
encumbrance level...better yet--go one range lower.

Best Challenges:  AB, PS
Best Avoids:  TP, SL, PR

     I was hoping someone would pick up the slack and report the rumors, innuendoes
and trash.  Thought Boca Merda would do it, but he's went wimpy on us.  Then I
thought the Expatriate might but he ran outta town so fast I got dizzy.  Where's
Eddie the Gimp and that Bob the Bard when you need them?  Ah well, guess I'll have to
do it myself....
     Didja see Historian's group of thugs squeak into Current Top Team?  How'd that
happen?  To top it off...they also took Newbie Career Honors!  Man, somebody gotta
knock them down a peg.  Maybe then I'll be able to get it, ya know (grin!).
     Noticed Asmo's Baatanar'Ritezu dropped like a hot rock from 17th to 30th.
Sheesh!  Bet he's pissed!  Although, Maximillian had his scrawny chest pumped out
'cause his Killers jumped from 23rd to 17th.  And, would you look at that midget
Tripwire struttin' around 'cause his team pumped up to 15th from 21st!  Some guys get
all the luck ('cause we *KNOW* it ain't skill!).
     Amazing.  Simply amazing...SCOMS Tower has raised both a horn of victory and a
smell of dirty socks...I mean...defeat.  Father O'Malley (bless him) and his brothel
of Old Habits went 5-5-0 and the Ozzers dropped to an 0-5-0.  (Bet ya don't laugh at
the Knights again eh, Oz?)
     Seems that Abraxis is still trying to get under someone's skin.  Tell us, good
sir...who's wearing the Panties of Dodging?  Especially since they're dodging me!
Believe me, I'm waiting in anticipation for the outcome of your storyline.  (Even if
our Arena Conscience, Expatriate, doesn't like it!)
     And to think I believed Raven was a nice lady.  What'd I do?  Threatening me
with a Taser?  Oooooooohhh...do ya promise!?  I think I'm in love!
     Speaking of our illustrious lady managers...(and I'm being completely serious
here)...does anyone know anything about Sensei Jan?  I know that she lives (IRL) in
Louisiana.  With Hurricane Rita passing through there, those of us whom are spiritual
people might want to lift up prayers for her and her loved ones.  And Jan, if you're
reading this...let us know of your situation.  We are *VERY* concerned!
     Okay, as my habit has been, these are Baphomet's Awards for T229 (although they
won't get ya any points...they might make you chuckle):

Best Warrior:  Kramer.  He's been outsmarting folks his whole career.
Who'dathunkit!?

Best Manager:  Father O'Malley with his 5-0-0 turn.

Best Joke:  Raven with her quip on the taser (you *WERE* joking right?  Please say
*NO!*)

Most Playful:  Mr. Oz for cracking on my team while flopping with his!  (Yeah, you's
was noted too!)

Most Observant:  Snarky...yep, I want TOP Team right *NOW!*  (waaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh)

Carefulwhatyouaskfor Award:  Steal Shank.  For inviting Tarantella to a fight and
then getting killed.  Sheesh!

     Well folks, that's it for this turn.  Just remember...this is for
"entertainment."  Take it with a grain of salt.  It ain't personal; it's just
business.

     Suicide walked out of the glowing crypt of the graveyard where Liam the Goth and
Hammer stood.
     "I guess the news is true," Hammer said.
     Suicide pulled back his hood to reveal his scaly head as smoke billowed out, "I
do not really trust that Sir Chester is willing to throw it all away."
     "He seemed really depressed; he downed seven ales in less than an hour," Hammer
said.  "Sure, he was down too, but can anyone really be that sour?"
     Suicide smiled.  "One minute you quit, the next you are ready to rule the world.
We'll rain fire like no one has ever seen before."
     "Fire and brimstone forever!" yelled Liam.
     A raven flew overhead and perched on a dragging branch.
     "Talan has great plans, Baphomet has light in his eyes and we will bring pain
and misery to all our foes," Suicide said casting a fireball into the raven.
     The trio nodded as Suicide continued, "They'll see the tide turn from light to
darkness, and then in a flash the gates of Hell will burst forth, burning everyone in
its path."
     Liam nodded, "Let it bring total chaos to those who think they can outrun it."

     I have a few questions if you guys could find the time to answer them
"PLEASE!!!"  First on the list, "Favorite rhythm."  What the hell is fav rhythm?
What does it give, do, how does it work, etc.  (I have a guess, way out from left
field, but I want to know what do you think and know) and by running higher or lower
from those numbers what happens?  Do you lose skills and boost others?
     Second, kill desire.  I run three to seven mostly three to four for accurate
hits and parries?  Am I wrong?  What is the best KD?  Five?
     Third and last.  I have no access to any computer so I don't know what's been
posted, hooked up or visit any of your personal or open sites.  I am totally old
school, put a stamp on an envelope snail mail type of guy.  So I am hella behind.
     On that note, you guys keep up the fun.  Remember it's a game.

     Well, another round down and we all seemed to be having a great time.  Before I
jump into the scores, got a couple of clarifications to make:

1.  Asmo...you were correct and I fixed it. Sorry, no extra bonus points 'cause
you're on my team and I don't want to hear anyone accusing me of any inappropriate
scoring practices.

2.  Blackstorm...unfortunately, M.M. isn't eligible to be a champion.  He went higher
than Adepts bracket.  Once that happens...it's a done deal.  You said that if he
wasn't eligible, make Eviscerator your champ.  I did that.

3.  Heathen...your declaration was noted and scored.

4.  Sir Chester...sadly, as you request.

5.  Oz...I received your diplo. There is NO WAY I could refuse your request.  So, you
got the points.  And...I'm leaving the other team with theirs since they won the
fight.  Yours was a mistake beyond your control.

     Okay, let me get the scores:

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Take a look at THE BEAR'S PAW's act, as they have a 3-2-0 week and 
gain 12 places in the team ranking.  Suffering under a 0-4-0 record and dropping from 
2nd to 13th place were the KNIGHTS TEMPLAR.  Keep trying!  Rising in the ranks like a 
loaf of armored bread (okay, I admit it's corny) is SALEM'S LOT, who swept up 11 
places in the ranks.  Take a look at ADULT SWIM's act, as they have a 3-1-0 week and 
gain 21 places in the team ranking.  Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread 
(okay, I admit it's corny) is MAESTUS MORTALES, who swept up 11 places in the ranks.  
A seasoned team is steady in the lists.  But to OF WOLF AND MAN, which fell to 34th, 
it's what you soak in before going to the Dark Arena.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
JACK MCFARLAND, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing AHURA MAZDA like 
a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
AHURA MAZDA, who dropped 19 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
JACK MCFARLAND.  ART PENDRAGON got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he 
was more than anxious to kick KRAMER's tail out of the throne!  Well, everybody's pal 
KRAMER moved his record to 15-5-0 by defeating ART PENDRAGON in the Duelmaster's 
Title Bout and gaining 8 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect 
the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad ADULT  SWIM?  Big bad ADULT 
SWIM.  Big bad ADULT SWIM.  SCOMSS SWAMP's afraid of the big bad ADULT SWIM.  Tra la 
la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch ALL SWAMP HAMMERZ's act in the 
arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from ADULT SWIM.  Well just 
about everybody wants a piece of JACK & JILL, who was this week's most challenged 
warrior.  In a mismatch, our friend FIGHTING TREE of LAND OF OZ got heroic notions 
and challenged BOMBADIL.  What did it get it?  A 10-12-1 record, that's what.  This 
week FIGHTING TREE 10-12-1 fought BOMBADIL 19-11-0 and in losing gained 7 points.  I 
know several gladiators who could go for a few fights like that.  Getting lots of 
flowers from sympathetic fans was TRISTAN, who was successfully challenged by APPIUS 
who had a mere 20 points more than TRISTAN.  Definition of petty:  APPIUS won victory 
over TRISTAN, a mismatch of 20 points.  BENDER of ADULT SWIM had better have a good 
reason for challenging down 15 points in a challenge which it won.  I thought BENDER 
showed great skill and promise when it won victory over DON KING.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Well, the arena is no place for 
slow learners (and hopefully T.P.s) and DROPSHOT demonstrated that very violently on 
FREMAN's body.  GOTHIC MINISTRY has one more week to get their bloodfeud off.  I 
talked to the manager, but he could only grunt 'INCUBUS who?'.  Ya gotta luv em!  
Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the 
trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

0-5, yet we net +2 points.  It is great being a wizard!  Life is grand in The Emerald
City. -- Oz The All Humbled

Hanta -- I had my chance, but you were the best.  Well done. -- Dainty China

Congratulations Kramer!!!!  Duelmaster and Chartered Recognition Leader.  Mannequin
should be proud. -- Oz The All Covetous

Baphomet -- Some feel high damage overcomes parry in greater and greater degrees. --
Oz The All Helpful

Sister Mary Sarah -- I thank you for matching up with Fighting Tree and allowing him
the best point gain of the Ozers--even in the loss. -- Oz The All Thankful

I am NOT thankful, Oz.  I say she worships false gods!  So there! -- Fighting Tree

Art Pendragon -- I blew it!  I had my chance and I, like, uh, bah! -- Humbug

Xerxes -- I gave it my all, but you held on and won.  Curse you, I say! -- Magic Wand
(waving)

5-0, Father?  Spank those Sisters more often!  (wink) -- Oz The All Humorous

Swamp Citizens -- By the time you read this P-ad, Hammer will be in the Philippines
ministering the Word of God.  All paperwork for exiting Qatar, plus the final salary
settlements were completed a few short weeks ago!  Looking forward to visiting family
and friends in the months ahead! -- Hammer; the Illuminati Ice Pick of International
Information Updates and Minister of War

THE KURGEN -- [BURP!] [BURP!] [BURP!] [BURP!] [BURP!] [BURP!] [BURP!] -- SWAMP BURP
HAMMER
P.S.  My special [BURP!] thanks to one and all who made it [BURP!] possible for me to
[BURP!] be listed in the [BURP!] Style Master Rankings last cycle!  This was quite an
unexpected [BURP!] accomplishment to be honored with my [BURP!] stable mate SWAMP
LILY HAMMER last [BURP!] cycle!

Maximillian -- Authorities over here in the phone company have blocked the internet
access for making long distance phone calls via computer.  My apologies for not
phoning you again, but such are the struggles to communicate from overseas! --
Hammer; the Illuminati Ice Pick of International Internet Blockage Angst and Minister
of War
P.S.  Glad to see you managed to send a stable to Dullens for ZalCon3 and have also
managed to irritate Baphomet over  here in the swamp!

Mr Coffee -- You should have received a letter or two by now.  You are not forgotten
and I will Snail Mail another one from Cebu, my friend! -- Hammer; the Illuminati Ice
Pick of International Information Distribution and Minister of War

Baphomet the Believer -- Sent a couple of letters to you also, my friend!  Let me
know where you are stationed and we will see what God works out in the coming months!
Snail Mail letter from Cebu will also be finding its way to you! -- Hammer; the
Illuminati Ice Pick of International Alliance Information Distribution and Minister
of War

Coffee the Confessor and Baphomet the Believer -- Snail Mail letter sent as promised
sent from Bulacan, Philippines which should arrive prior to this newsletter! --
Hammer; Minister of War

Drow  -- I couldn't beat a Harpy, much less a dark elf with an effort like that.
Well done. -- Louie

Jenkins -- Thanks for standing still long enough for me to work on my technique. --
Lowell

Swamp Trap Hammer -- What the--?  Didn't I see that strategy in my last fight?  Have
you and Blackened been talking?  -- Wilson

Morwhen -- I just knew all those Initiative skills I've been learning were going to

Sir Galahad -- Consider our fight a friendly reminder that our stable OWNS your

Mr. Ree -- (snuffs candle, sneers in your general direction) -- The Kurg

Ace Metric -- I just couldn't hold the stance as long as you did. -- Jabberwock

(...ahhh but hast thou *slain* the Jabberwock? -- SNARKundaunted)

Oh Toto's a hairy old dog:
a tax on Hairy's attacks and parries,
his new master logged and learned, too,
a trick (or four!), a treat!
               -- Bombadil, unharried

Black -- Roam free, marauder; may our paths never cross. -- Freman

(..."rotten" Tower's over thattaway! -- SNARKscout)

Little Big Man -- Come in, door open!  We "smoke 'em peace pipe"? -- Tarzan

(C'mon.  How Max. -- SNARKsmoke'em million)

Yeah, Expatriate, off back...but seriously...your point about inappropriate sexual
comments is provocative:  I suppose female warriors provoked them, or did comments
cause the entry of women fighters?  Whether "chicks" or comments came first, lady
gladiators are right unnatural:  Sister Mary Elephant and those anorexic orc witches
are proof of that...heh heh. -- SNARKoldschool (I got serious there once...didn't
care for it.)

Aye Aye Captain Coffee.  Here's to fillin' this swamp to the rim with brimstone! --
110%SNARK

Heathen -- Heat?  Fire and tarnation!!  Quit ads?  Gods, no, man we're TAPIOHCAS, by
Gods. -- SNARKlander

Abraxis -- I feel your pain in "ad-ville". -- SNARKempathy (on the bright side now I
won't have to buy a dictionary)

(aww Shank, redemption? -- Steel Snark)

Mr. Coffee -- Iced hot cocoa, sounds good.  Will try some next time I go to canteen.
-- Liam the Goth

Dr. Snarkyl/Mr. Snyder -- Yes, fun indeed.  Nice last turn.  Keep winning, good sir.
-- Liam

Abraxis -- NUTS!  My apologies on the DC.  Wrong fighter in the wrong arena.  That's
what I get for running in five arenas in the same month. -- Liam

Heathen -- That was a fun contest between Miss and Kiss, wouldn't you say? -- Liam
P.S.  Suicide gives me much inspiration, he's just warming up.

I Want To Die -- Well that was a suicide attempt if ever I have seen one. -- Bone
Golem

Suicide -- Let's find your center and set it on stun! -- Liam

Wozzeck -- Well bless your wild heart. -- Rigor

Drama Queen -- Well, my boss was a bit confused at that challenge.  But it was good
to see you. -- Rigor

Baphomet -- Well no, the blood was from Erinika, but Greens will be used for a
special siege to the southeast in my home arena. -- Liam

Sir Chester -- What?!  Get your klk butt back here and kill anything that smiles. --
Liam
P.S.  Nice turn in Erinika and Dragonhead!  I only have seven kills in my time in the
game (98-106-7).

Maximillian -- I don't think awesome is the right word, but thank you for the
compliment, coming from a manager of your class it means something to me.  I'm the
one who should be saying awesome with you holding top team and the DM throne, see you
back home. -- Liam

Raven -- I would give you some acetone but my undead Trolls keep eating it all.  On
my way back from Shadow Grove I'll drop off a barrel for you.  Oh, every time one of
my undead give yours a hug they get paint on them.  Red and white lines in a circle.
Go figure. -- Liam

Tarantella -- Hey, no biggy.  Was an honor to be fighting a TC. -- Specter of Incubus

Asmo Dius -- Brother, you have been quiet.  Let's get a drink at the Doll House. --
Liam
P.S.  My treat.

Clintonlikesbush -- Oho!  Now why'd I think you were a Slasher?  Please allow me to
change arms and accept my challenge this turn. -- Marijuana Man

Bombadil -- Methinks there may be a chance fer me.  Can this night get it right the
hallows eve? -- Zombies Ghost

Snarkman -- You do seem to have the better stuff.  By the way, 10-10-1 with the joint
tactic, hasn't been working for MM; try try again. -- Blackstorm

Heathen -- Only 150!!  Gods, they'll need 200 by turn 230 or we'll cream em. --
Blackstorm

Baphomet -- Got it!  I had noticed some nasty straty's, but I haven't paying close
enough attention to what I've been doing lately.  I'm gonna try this turn. --
Blackstorm
P.S.  I believe they prefer to be called Newfoundlanders or 'Newfies' for short.
Crip will confirm, I think.

Ahura Mazda -- Yeah, I saw.  I'm still not walking right. -- M

Tristan -- AEEEARRG!!!  BARRAOUUU!!  ED, AAARG!!!  GRRR! (with lots and lots of
drool) -- Pure Rage

Cappuccino -- A couple of legs slaps and down on my backside.  I didn't really want
to fight anyway. -- Freeborn
P.S.  Too many of "those" skills can mess YOU up.

Swamp Rose Hammer -- You definitely have skills giant.  Your record doesn't reflect
your skill.  Time will tell. -- Eviscerator

Etienne Duplaix -- So that's how it's going to be; your manager seems to have found
something interesting indeed. -- Black Thunder

To One and All -- First off.  Welcome all teams to our glorious and smelly swamp.
The competition has been fierce and challenging.  Let's keep it going till the end.
This is what Duelmasters is all about (I, as many others cannot accept, DUEL 2???).
I sense a bit of change in the air.  Can you smell it? -- Blackstorm of BLACKSTORM
member of T.O.A.T.I.O.A.H.C.

Vile Child -- You fought well.  We shall dance again. -- Man Hunter

Bob's Comic Collectn -- Close as it was, I was just too good.  Next time think before
going after a one that is just too much. -- Killer

Yogi Bear -- They say everything is downhill after your first win.  I thank you for
mine. -- Judge

Stuff -- That was, what was...eeww I could not...I--I eww. -- Deadly

Heathen -- There are more ways than one to inspire and expire. -- Suicide, watcher of
Hell's Gate

Sir Chester -- Is giving up really the answer?  Think like a demon, live by the code,
be like the codes! -- Suicide, Watcher of Hell's Gate

Tarantella -- Raven asked if we'd offer to give you a hug.  So, c'mere!  (pulling out
a dagger looking for a soft spot in the target painted on his back). -- Art Pendragon

Raven -- Honest...it ain't personal.  I'm just not gonna let you guys run away with
the show like that.  It's embarrassing.  My motto is:  "it ain't personal:  just
business." -- Baphomet
P.S.  You were joking about the Taser, right?  DANG IT!!

Mr. Oz -- And yes...I noticed yours too! -- Baphomet

Mr. Oz -- Knowing your integrity and impeccable character, explain the situation to
me and I'll do the right thing.  As of now...I haven't received your diplo. --
Baphomet

Suicide -- I work better under extreme duress. -- Baphomet

Snarky -- Hnmmm...frog legs! -- Baphomet

Maximillain -- I get CRS too. -- Baphomet

Raven -- Our congrats were sincere (even if we're now cursing Manager)! -- Baphomet

Buddy Lee -- I think I kicked too hard. -- Baphomet

Blackstorm -- Nay, my friend.  I considered you a superior competition and thought to
test my skill and the skill of my warriors.  I had no idea that I'd hang your brains
out...er...I mean...I was surprised they'd win (grin!). -- Baphomet
P.S.  Careful what you ask for!

Snarky -- In the immortal words of The Stones "you can't always get what you
wanted..."  Heck, I'm still looking for the "Puerto Rican girls just dying to meet"
me. -- Baphomet

Pure Rage -- Chuckle. -- Tristan

Kramer -- And to the winner goes the Throne. -- Sir Galahad

Mannequin -- Either you thought me a worthy adversary, or you're having way too much
fun kicking the crap out of my warriors. (grin) -- Baphomet

Venomous Concubine -- For a moment, I thought they were sending Raven.  Then I
remembered, she ain't poisonous. -- Ahura Mazda

Humbug -- Bah...and to think I'd been avoiding you!  Seriously! -- Art Pendragon

Mr. Oz -- Received your diplo and will credit you the points.  No problem! --
Baphomet

Abraxis -- You ran me off?  You're delusional.  I left Chimlevtal and don't run in
this arena every turn for one reason, and one reason only, money.  Not my record, not
the way people play here (or there), and definitely not you.  I couldn't care less
how bad my record is, that is not why I play the game anymore nor is it how I measure
my self worth.  I'm busily losing the Quest (ok next to last) in Fratsfa, and I'm
having a ball.  I don't expect you to be able to understand that.
     You know what?  I know where you were when CFH found you, and that gives you
away.  I know what kind of person you are, come to DM and be all you want to be.
Sound familiar?  Do you ever get tired of patting yourself on the back?  Do you
really believe that people respect you as a person because you have a winning record
or that you are over 500?  You have to give respect to earn it, and you don't even
show basic human courtesy to those around you.
     The saddest part is that you have some talent as a writer.  Raw talent, but
talent nonetheless and you waste it.  Why don't you try writing something to
entertain someone other than yourself, and doesn't involve attacking another manager.
You might find it to be a more satisfying and worthy use of your ability.
    I changed my persona because after a six month absence my old persona just didn't
fit who I was.  I don't expect you to understand that either. -- The Expatriate

Mr. Coffee -- I'm not on Snarky's back (ugly thought that).  He said something and I
responded.  Nothing more, nothing less. -- The Expatriate

Baphomet -- Diplo on the way (you may have already gotten it). -- The Expatriate

Liam -- I answered yours as well. -- The Expatriate

Baphomet -- Answer the post a note please! -- Buddy Lee

Chester -- What's up with you and candy?  Man!  It don't matter if you lose a hundred
points.  Raven already took the prize single handed.  Let's just make it hurt and
have fun. -- Evil Buddy Lee grin

Raven -- Nice...it was a hard blow to my team but not critical.  All I can say is you
one bad mama!

All -- My apologies.  Bad ass Tarantella is a beast.  Sorry about giving Raven and X
so many points. -- Buddy Lee
P.S.  Steal Shank's # (LU)  12(+1)-5-12-21-15-7-13, good dam, ski -- 28 int, 9 rip,
24 att, 9 par, 25(+5) Def, 15 Dec, 21 FE.  Won a lot a 7-10-4 open, or dodge.  Too
bad he was frail.  I'm gonna send him off to the dead Tourney.  We'll see if he'll
come back.  If not, oh well.

Mr. Coffee -- Buddy ICE?  Is that some new coffee drink people suck in with two
straws on dates?  Sounds French. -- Buddy Lee

Suicide -- Nice spotlight!  Keep them coming. -- Buddy Lee

Abraxis -- I enjoy your spot.  You sure know how to make an imp come to life. --
Buddy Lee
P.S.  I don't think I like imps.  Poor cat!

Snark -- This is my first turn going minus and I feel like crap!  You are definitely
getting the Gandhi!  Now here's the award. -- Buddy running away Lee

Skulli -- My apologies.  Both K.D. were at 4. -- Buddy Lee

Heathen -- What will be will be.  I'm experiencing a rough series, but I'd rather
face good managers then run over inept ones. -- Mr. Coffee/Tipping His Cup

Blackstorm -- I wrote you back, but for some reason it was returned. -- Capt Coffee

Snarky -- Snark 'em! -- Capt Coffee, unleashing the Snarkster

Hammer -- Received your snail.  I'll return it stateside.  God bless you and keep you
and Elma safe. -- Mr. Coffee

Baphomet -- Yes I can receive direct snails.  How do YOU write Blackstorm?  I tried
and it came back. -- Mr. Coffee

Heathen -- Please, continue to write spots and personals.  Sorry Hal ate them, the
typist misplaced them, or the mailman didn't deliver them. -- Mr. Coffee

Anton Levay -- Bet you thought you had that one in the bag eh! Denied. -- White
Settler

Tarzan -- King of the jungle!?  Hmmmf!  Not around these parts. -- Little Big Man

Marijuana Man -- Now wasn't that just too weird!  Careful what you ask for. --
Clintonlikesbush

Darque Forces -- We are sorry for the loss of such a fine man as Curseshock was,
Devout Christian is beside himself.  It's not like killing Illuminati, we can do that
all day but when a real warrior and a member of our own ranks dies, it hits home. --
Maximillian

Raven -- I think, if the blind squirrel ever actually found a nut it would just sit
right where it was and eat it while the hawk he couldn't see swooped down on it and
ate the squirrel and the nut. -- Maximillian

Liam -- Aren't you pulling out of Morya now?!  Not nice to fib. -- Maximillian

Baphomet -- You send diplos to me and my alliance mates telling us we don't run our
warriors properly and then proceed to tell us how to run them.  Have you looked at
the listings?  Every VC member has a better record than your team while you can't
even break 45%.  You should at least be able to win with your own warriors before
handing out advice to your betters.  The time has come to exterminate your warriors
and cleanse their filth from the sands of North Fork.  You're trying not to let this
get out of hand!  What exactly are you gonna do about it?  Besides I'm not giving you
a choice!  Suit up "bappy", the "Killers" are coming. -- Maximillian and the Natural
B. Killers

5 October 2005
To those once of Willaf -- It's time to come back to the sands.  I'm back,
exclusively at Willaf.... -- Kurd the Vivisectionist, Your Better

12 October 2005
Magic Man -- You are a fellow Canadian, are you not?  Where do you hail from?  I live
in Kelowna, B.C. -- Maximillian, 8,13, 28, 47, 54
