                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Listen, you guys, when I find out which one of you started calling me
"RE-Volto," there will be blood spilled.

                                    Volto Leeni

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JADE MOUNTAIN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
DONAL PINES?  SAND DANCERS' proud of him after beating VERN and getting 18 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  VERN got smashed by DONAL PINES, and lost 8 points!  
This Duelmaster is like something else!  VOLTO LEENI stopped JADE MASTER dead in his 
tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said JADE MOUNTAIN's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Green Axe?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Lord Protector Volto Leeni -- Er, um, well, congratulations, anyway.  I don't think
there are going to be any lands forthcoming, unless you want to petition for some
howling wilderness on the border where you'll have to spend all your time fighting
off barbarians.  And I really don't think you want to mention this to Lord Kendar at
all.  He's been very, um, testy lately. -- Reldesinar, Arena Steward

                             HAMMER ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

     Be it known from the highest mountains to the darkest alleys of Alastari that
the veteran manager known far and wide as Hammer has now officially retired from
sponsoring contests as of September 15, 2005.
     What a long time ago was a fun motivated activity to help promote our common
DM/D2 gaming interest in an effort to promote the growth and competitiveness of
selected arenas has become a far from fun experience.
     In other words Hammer has had it!
     The combination of real life situations interfering with the time needed to
effectively sponsor a contest, plus the attitudes expressed during such sponsorship
interference has led to Hammer closing his personal coin coffers and retiring from
his planned sponsorship of any future contests.
     There are others in our close knit gaming community who are well able to step up
to the plate and continue sponsoring contests that make the basic game a fun
experience for all those who choose to compete and interact in such future endeavors.
     Hammer thanks all managers both active and inactive who helped to make the
Hammer sponsored contests a historical and entertaining experience well worth the
time, effort and money spent over the past several years.
     May the Cheers and the Jeers of future contests build upon the legacies of those
who have paved the way in years gone by to help make this game what it is today.
     Hammer has no regrets for the part he has played in that history.

19 September 2005
I'd like to say hello to everyone I know that is still around after my being gone for
five years.  Hope to see you all on the sands, and may your weapons strike true and
your shields protect you (except, of course, against MY warriors *grin*)!! -- Lord
Xiang, D2-101

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
