     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
DWES EG brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, KELLUMBO'S KIDS 26, 
since BIG 10 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  With any luck, 
I can sneak into The Dripping Blade and join KICK THAT STYLE's celebration over their 
good record this turn.  2nd place, not bad.  If The Dripping Blade is buying drinks 
for ADVERBS II's good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 1-0-1 
makes for a big thirst.  With any luck, I can sneak into The Dripping Blade and join

KELLUMBO'S KIDS 23, who went 0-1-0 and dropped 20 into 23rd.  Here's my pity, for 
what it's worth.  With any luck, I can sneak into The Dripping Blade and join NUTS' 
celebration over their good record this turn.  24th place, not bad.  Look out below!

Look out below!  ?? is on the way down, falling to 105th from 52nd with a 0-1-0!  Ha 
ha ha ha!  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see SALTY SUSAN win a fight and 
gain 27 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SALTY SUSAN beat SHARK BAIT! and SHARK BAIT! 
lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the 
new, as PUD 135 takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  The Dripping Blade, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where 
do they get this stuff?  From DWES EG's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  DWES 
EG, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  M IS FOR ... the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like INQUISITION 0314 avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  RYAN 
was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but PHP has 
challenged up by 29 in an attempt against EHH.  And The Dripping Blade has banned EHH 
from service until next turn for losing to PHP and giving him 27 points in the 
process!  Ha!  Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, HOPE was challenged by 14A 9D, 
who was ranked 28 points below him.  Well, ok, the upstart knave (where've I heard 
that before?) won this match and gained 25 points to boot!  Ha ha ha, HOPE.  Now 
here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, POOK challenged up 28 to take on 
YELLOW POST-IT of WORK WITH THIS.  And sure, POOK lost alright, but gained 1 
recognition for hers pains.  And pains they may indeed be!  I suspect either a 21 
will or a 21 ego on this one, but XYLOPHONE has challenged up by 26 in an attempt 
against DESCARTES.  My sides still hurt from laughing about DESCARTES losing and 
giving XYLOPHONE 18 points of recognition.  Ha ha ha ha!!  Looks like time for 
laurels or hemlock, TWIG was challenged by VAGABOND, who was ranked 27 points below 
him.  But here's a pretty tale--VAGABOND did lose the fight, but gained 4 worth of 
recognition.  Some long shots can pay off, I guess.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Nipped in the bud, you might say, was EVIL PRINCE of 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS 23 this turn.  Course, I wouldn't say that, so much as have a belly 
laugh.  Heh heh.  And now a passing thought on a warrior dying young (WRATH of THE 
BROTHERHOOD 40):  You had your chance and now you're dead.  Oh well...  Nipped in the 
bud, you might say, was VANILLA PEPSI of SOFT DRINKS this turn.  Course, I wouldn't 
say that, so much as have a belly laugh.  Heh heh.  Titanium shields and bamboo 
daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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.  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

                            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
