                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

     Greetings, glorious Crysalis!  I am honored to once again be the Chief Tower
Guard.  I salute Scum #1 for an intense battle for the title.  Well fought and
salute, warrior.
     It is good to see some lively personals.  I hope you'll note that The Icelord
and The Council of Lords would like to sponsor "Crysalis Craziness" on turn #150.
That turn we hope to see ALL warriors fight with no weapon, armor, shield, or helm.
A little hand-to-hand action will be fun.  It kind of reminds me of my younger days
in the mead halls in northern Polaris.  If an old guy like me can go for it, I'm sure
you younger warriors will be chomping at the bit for some bare-handed action!
     Now, I return to defend my title.  I haven't learned a skill or trained a stat
in a long while, but experience counts, so I'm ready.
     This turn I'll be challenging one of Crip's warriors.  Strong steel and salute!

Fengar II

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     The Unknown Spymaster takes lousy notes.  Natural enough, I suppose, since he 
can't see anything with that bag over his head.  But I hate having to work from them.  
Even a master such as myself finds them inadequate.  Ah, well, it isn't like YOU are 
going to notice anything....  No, I take that back, this IS one of the better arenas 
on the Isle.  Which is not, perhaps, saying all that much, but you do seem to pay 
more attention to what happens, which is more than I can say for the denizens of, 
say, Home Guard.
     Such facts as I can glean from the Unknown's (I could tell you his real 
identity, but it's more fun to bleed him with blackmail demands) incoherent notes are 
these:
     Royal Flush was avoided by The Stormguards.  Unknown seems to feel that personal 
hygiene was an issue in this, but as he has no concept of personal hygiene, I do not 
consider him an adequate judge.
     Snooper may--I only say "may," because the note is even less specific than 
usual--have been most challenged.  But it's plausible.  Nobody likes a snoop, and if 
a person is so stupid as to admit to that activity publicly, by taking such a name, 
well, what can he expect?
     Thirty-nine fights, which is better than many arenas can show these days.  
Nineteen challenge matches, which is, relatively speaking, excellent.  No deaths, a 
disappointing factor, but I suppose you can't die EVERY day.  Try for some deaths 
next time, however.

     The fights:
     GRINNON BEARIT (47-2955) (22-14-3,83) of THE BEAR'S PAW fought BINGE N PURGE 
(45-3567) (21-11-0,83) of EMETICS.  GRINNON BEARIT overpowered BINGE N PURGE in a 1 
minute uneven bout.  Rumor around the arena has it that Grinnon fortified 
him/her/itself for this fight by drinking a complete bottle of some disgusting pink 
stuff.
     SIR PELLEAS (31-4352) (20-17-1,75) of WILLBENDERS fought DANNIA TYL SIO (52-
3393) (35-25-1,77) of SAND DANCERS.  SIR PELLEAS was subdued by DANNIA TYL SIO in a 2 
minute duel.  Pelleas, Pelleas, do I know this man?  Hmm, nothing in the standing 
notes.  Or the sitting ones.  Ah, well.  The Sio wench... Adantri.  Snappy dressers, 
if you like elaborate, but rather over-burdened with concepts of honor.  It makes 
them tedious companions.  Stiff-necked.
     BISMARCK (34-2400) (24-20-2,92) of D-DAY SQUAD fought NORM PETERSON (39-2745) 
(43-74-0,59) of DRINKING BUDDIES.  BISMARCK subdued NORM PETERSON in a crowd pleasing 
2 minute match.  Not to denigrate Bismarck's victory, but the evidence would indicate 
that Norm--as usual--was very nearly falling-down drunk when he staggered into the 
arena.
     U.S.S. ARIZONA (34-2643) (22-17-1,100) of D-DAY SQUAD fought RANCID WAIF (8-
4413) (17-12-0,57) of HAPLESS WAIF.  U.S.S. ARIZONA beat RANCID WAIF in a popular 2 
minute fray.  My spies--I have spies, you know, so I don't have to do all the work 
myself--report that after the fight, Arizona through Rancid into the ornamental horse 
trough out front of the arena and held the Hapless Waif under for ten minutes.  The 
Infirmary staff, who had to deal with the result, say it made no difference.  How 
glad I am not to be a member of the Infirmary staff, eh?
     SUNFLASH (45-3474) (25-18-1,95) of NORTHERN LIGHTS fought BEARNICE (47-2847) 
(16-17-6,65) of THE BEAR'S PAW.  SUNFLASH was overpowered by BEARNICE in an exciting 
1 minute bloody one-sided struggle.  Always a crowd-pleaser, fights between women.  
They have rather simple tastes, our crowds.  Boobs and blood.
     SNOWFALL (45-3473) (28-15-0,92) of NORTHERN LIGHTS fought MAEGOLOS (50-3312) 
(23-18-1,72) of DARK SIDHE.  SNOWFALL was demolished by MAEGOLOS in a 1 minute uneven 
contest.  By which we may assume that this Maegolos person was, as the hoi polloi put 
it, "hot."
     TAMMY FAYE (39-3520) (18-8-0,94) of WITLESS WONDERS fought UNCERTAIN OMELET (47-
3786) (12-5-0,44) of MYSTIC ORC FEAST.  TAMMY FAYE was beaten by UNCERTAIN OMELET in 
a 1 minute fray.  And anyone who would eat a dubious omelet deserves everything she 
gets.  Pure idiocy.
     JACK SPRAT (47-2954) (50-57-4,145) of ROYAL FLUSH fought DOLLFACE (39-2372) (60-
80-1,135) of DRINKING BUDDIES.  JACK SPRAT was luckily beaten by DOLLFACE in an 
exciting 7 minute brutal fight.  Amazing, really, that Dollface--or Jack, for that 
matter, given his irrational diet--could maintain "exciting" for seven minutes.  I 
would not have thought either of them capable of it.  Of course, there was a certain 
amount of excitement in watching Dollface as we all wondered whether her costume 
would, or would not, survive the next movement....
     PIXIE BLIGHT (73-4427) (18-16-0,106) of DARQUE FORCES VIII fought AVONSIDE (13-
3927) (32-44-1,149) of KIWI CONNECTION.  PIXIE BLIGHT was overpowered by AVONSIDE in 
a 1 minute one-sided match.  Now, THIS is outrageous.  Kiwis?  A revolting fruit, I 
assure you, and paradoxical besides.  What other fruits are ripe when they're green?
     KYRA (51-3774) (42-47-1,139) of SAND DANCERS fought EVIL INPUTTER (106-7) (0-0-
0,110) of Crysalis Deadbeats.  KYRA slimly lost to EVIL INPUTTER in a 2 minute fray.  
And let that be a lesson to you all: NEVER cross the Evil Inputter.
     TEN COMMANDMENTS (47-3843) (39-36-0,178) of ROYAL FLUSH fought KISSYFUR (67-
2187) (24-11-1,107) of ALL-STAR NANA'S.  TEN COMMANDMENTS overpowered KISSYFUR in a 1 
minute one-sided fight.  And an entirely good thing it is, too.  "Kissyfur"?  What 
kind of name is that for a warrior?  It sounds more like mud wrestling at Joe's Bar.
     BURGER KING (47-4152) (32-27-2,168) of ROYAL FLUSH fought CARLA (39-2428) (61-
76-2,132) of DRINKING BUDDIES.  BURGER KING was overcome by CARLA in a 2 minute duel.  
Clearly, this was Burger's ill-judged onions.  Onions make Carla mad, and when in 
battle against a madwoman....
     SCUM #1 (50-2743) (50-54-0,207) of DARK SIDHE fought ARENAMASTER SANDAVOL (106-
28) (0-0-0,200) of Crysalis Deadbeats.  SCUM #1 viciously subdued ARENAMASTER 
SANDAVOL in an action packed 7 minute bout.  And a salute to Scum #1 for this victory 
over a TRUE deadbeat.  I hear that out in the basic arenas, the Arenamaster is a 
figure of respect.  Here on the Isle...?  No.
     DISCO QUEEN (47-1992) (35-16-1,189) of ROYAL FLUSH fought PRINCE OF AR (31-3625) 
(15-13-1,176) of THE STORMBRINGERS.  DISCO QUEEN was demolished by PRINCE OF AR in a 
2 minute gruesome one-sided melee.  A queen demolished by a prince.  Are we looking 
at a palace coup here?  Inquiring minds want to know!
     HANNYA (73-4350) (29-11-1,201) of BLOOD LUST fought SIR PLUS (10-4316) (33-27-
1,210) of SIR AGLIO.  HANNYA won victory over SIR PLUS in a popular 1 minute fight.  
Although, since the effusion of blood was not mentioned by the recorder, this fight 
may have been less than satisfying for the blood-lusting Hannya.  Still, it's a win.
     DUNEDIN (14-3703) (30-41-0,193) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS fought TALOS (31-2069) (53-
27-0,189) of THE STORMGUARDS.  DUNEDIN lost to TALOS in a popular 6 minute match.  
What can you expect, eh?  Highlands are always bad places to meet with storms.
     JUNINHO (7-4001) (25-14-1,210) of IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS fought WHEEL OF FORTUNE 
(25-2529) (46-41-2,171) of DUELING FOR DOLLARS.  JUNINHO overpowered WHEEL OF FORTUNE 
in a popular 1 minute one-sided match.  Ah... the orderlies--they were somewhat 
closer to the action--tell me that Juninho the Footballer mistook the Wheel for a 
Ball and (wince) kicked it hard.
     DAIRY QUEEN (47-2685) (63-37-2,214) of ROYAL FLUSH fought SIR LY (10-4116) (43-
33-0,204) of SIR AGLIO.  DAIRY QUEEN was viciously subdued by SIR LY in an action 
packed 4 minute bloody duel.  It would appear that this is not the day for queens, 
but then, what are queens doing in the arena anyway?  They should be at home in the 
castle, keeping their kings happy.
     KALANDRA (50-2443) (61-57-3,255) of DARK SIDHE fought FIGHTER ACE (47-1189) (56-
41-6,215) of ROYAL FLUSH.  KALANDRA vanquished FIGHTER ACE in a 1 minute one-sided 
match.  (raised eyebrow)  Apparently this is not the kind of fighting that Ace is an 
"ace" at.
     WILLIE MAKIT (73-514) (104-38-3,268) of MISTAKEN IDENTITY fought WEINERMUN (37-
2635) (55-46-3,222) of ALL THE MUN'S MEN.  WILLIE MAKIT devastated WEINERMUN in a 1 
minute one-sided bout.  I hear there was mention of... buns.  Grills.  Pickle relish.  
Sounds kinky to me.  What a depraved lot you are!

     The challenge matches:
     MANZANITA (78-2276) (19-4-0,51) of TREE PEOPLE challenged MOSGIEL (14-3836) (21-
10-1,52) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  Up 1.  MANZANITA was overcome by MOSGIEL in a 2 
minute Challenge competition.  Naturally.  Stick to stablizing the hillsides, 
Manzanita.  You're better at that.
     GUTTERBALL (78-2344) (20-18-1,76) of PBA challenged LAPHROAIG (31-4529) (19-14-
0,76) of SINGLE MALTS.  Straight across.  GUTTERBALL was beaten by LAPHROAIG in a 
popular 2 minute Challenge match.  "Single malts"?  We're talking strong liquor here, 
are we not?  And what gladiator--or manager, for that matter--can resist strong 
liquor?
     STIGMA OF STUPID (31-4948) (13-4-1,44) of UNFIT TO BE ORCS challenged BLANK (78-
2374) (15-10-2,41) of TREE PEOPLE.  Down 3.  STIGMA OF STUPID overpowered BLANK in an 
exciting 1 minute one-sided Challenge bout.  Yes, stupid will do that nearly every 
time.  The only wonder is that it hasn't happened oftener.
     PROOKIE (78-2345) (22-15-1,74) of PBA challenged EGAN FORN (39-3295) (25-37-
0,81) of THE MIDDLE WAY.  Up 7.  PROOKIE savagely defeated EGAN FORN in a crowd 
pleasing 2 minute Challenge brawl.  Prookie.  Gods, that's a hideous name for a 
gladiator!
     SIR LANCELOT (72-4997) (15-13-2,79) of KNIGHTS TEMPLAR challenged ZOOLANDER (39-
3523) (18-8-1,87) of WITLESS WONDERS.  Up 8.  SIR LANCELOT was vanquished by 
ZOOLANDER in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge bout.  Witlessness is like stupidity, 
it's everywhere and it always wins in the end.  The world is in bad shape, very bad 
shape.
     RANDOM MATCHUP (96-1048) (11-7-3,76) of OVERRATED challenged PINE (78-2350) (22-
11-1,56) of TREE PEOPLE.  Down 20.  RANDOM MATCHUP slimly won victory over PINE in a 
2 minute Challenge fight.  It seems almost indecent for a warrior named (improbably) 
"Random Matchup" to issue a challenge, doesn't it?
     SPLIT (78-2347) (24-16-0,110) of PBA challenged DEBBIE DAHMER (45-3579) (27-8-
1,138) of MORDRED'S MADMEN.  Up 28.  SPLIT demolished DEBBIE DAHMER in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute one-sided Challenge brawl.  I would judge that this Debbie person 
was handicapped not only by being female but by being on a team named "MadMEN."  It 
should have been "Madpersons."
     300 (78-2346) (22-17-0,140) of PBA challenged LUMBERING WAIF (8-4346) (19-11-
0,147) of HAPLESS WAIF.  Up 7.  300 was unbelievably bested by LUMBERING WAIF in a 3 
minute Challenge conflict.  Amazing, I didn't think Lumbering could count to 300.  
Ah, I see--being unable to count that high, Lumbering sliced 300 into smaller 
numbers....
     MATADOR (11-4139) (45-34-2,106) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS challenged SINYAMEGIL (50-
2952) (25-23-0,125) of DARK SIDHE.  Up 19.  MATADOR savagely defeated SINYAMEGIL in 
an exciting 3 minute brutal Challenge fight.  So, Sinyamegil, are you a bull in 
disguise?
     STONEWALL (11-3900) (51-59-2,144) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS challenged TASHIA (11-
2740) (29-39-1,150) of DEADLY DE-PARTED.  Up 6.  STONEWALL defeated TASHIA in an 
action packed 2 minute Challenge match.  By falling on her.  Very painfully, having a 
stone wall fall on you.
     KRAC D'CHEVALIERS (31-4345) (21-27-0,169) of THE STORMGUARDS challenged MIRTA 
(51-4033) (49-29-1,179) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 10.  KRAC D'CHEVALIERS savagely defeated 
MIRTA in an action packed 4 minute Challenge duel.  Four minutes of savagery?  Were 
there exciting turn-arounds?  Dramatic moves?  I stepped out for a drink about then 
and missed it.
     SIR YDER (31-4353) (27-11-0,155) of WILLBENDERS challenged BALCLUTHA (14-3169) 
(29-37-1,193) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  Up 38.  SIR YDER was vanquished by BALCLUTHA in 
a 2 minute uneven Challenge duel.  So, Sir Yder, maybe you need to straighten out 
your will.  Bent is not always good.
     SANDBLASTER (11-3899) (54-56-3,203) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS challenged BEAUTY QUEEN 
(47-3352) (39-39-3,209) of ROYAL FLUSH.  Up 6.  SANDBLASTER overpowered BEAUTY QUEEN 
in a 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.  And another queen loses today!  Did I not say 
this was a bad day for queens to be on the sands?
     SANDPAWN (11-4169) (50-24-1,196) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS challenged KITALA THE BOLD 
(78-875) (86-103-2,198) of SAND DANCERS.  Up 2.  SANDPAWN unbelievably bested KITALA 
THE BOLD in a 6 minute Challenge match.  What is to doubt?  We saw this with our own 
eyes.
     KING FORADAY (47-3762) (43-41-4,190) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged JUAN (41-2304) 
(29-19-0,201) of DREAM TEAMS.  Up 11.  KING FORADAY viciously subdued JUAN in a 2 
minute gory Challenge duel.  And so the King's reign resumes.
     SANDMAN (11-3923) (55-56-2,218) of ANDORIAN KNIGHTS challenged PAUL (35-2349) 
(37-39-2,225) of COMMON JOE'S.  Up 7.  SANDMAN defeated PAUL in a crowd pleasing 3 
minute Challenge match.  As to why the crowd was pleased, who can guess?  Crowds are 
fickle and unaccountable.  But a pleased crowd returns another day, thus swelling the 
arena coffers and, incidentally, my fee for making this report, so it is all to the 
good.
     CRUSADER LORD (31-3946) (43-32-6,241) of THE STORMGUARDS challenged SNOOPER (1-
5154) (42-18-3,281) of MIKE'S MISFITS.  Up 40.  CRUSADER LORD was vanquished by 
SNOOPER in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  Makes you wonder what the nosy 
fellow has been into, doesn't it?  I refer, of course, to most-challenged Snooper.
     JACK VALTRAEDS (47-407) (85-61-2,211) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged BELGOROTH (50-
3175) (35-29-1,297) of DARK SIDHE.  Up 86.  JACK VALTRAEDS demolished BELGOROTH in a 
popular 3 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  So, are we looking at a "Jack the Giant-
killer" here?  Not that anybody died.  But did towers topple and wizards wince with 
Jack's victory?  Inquiring minds, as usual, want to know!

     FENGAR II (20-61) (114-79-2,305) of OVERLORDS challenged KING UVDAHELL (47-1643) 
(35-15-1,211) of ROYAL FLUSH.  Down 94.  FENGAR II devastated KING UVDAHELL in a 1 
minute mismatched Challenge Title fight.  How can a Title fight be mis-matched?  
We're talking serious honor and all that stuff.  Or at the least, serious chances to 
snap up the perquisites.  Ah, well, a good fight though a brief one.

THE DEAD                    W   L  K TEAM NAME              SLAIN BY              TURN

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

High Lord Bosk -- Well met, my brother. -- The Icelord

Spymaster Ketchum -- Uh, OK. -- The Icelord

Ten Commandments -- Thoust mayest not be. -- Crusader Lord

Crysalis -- Who is ready for a little "Crysalis Craziness?"  Who is ready to have
their warriors fight with no armor/weapons/helm/shield on turn #150??  My warriors
will do so.  Also, it looks like High Lord Bosk, Sultan, AK47, Crip and Baphomet are
in.  Who else wants to hear the sweet sound of knuckles, knees and elbows connecting
with noses, teeth and jaws??  The crowd will be going wild!  I invite you, mighty
managers of Crysalis, to join in on this one turn event.  Not only will it be
historic, it will be fun!  Salute. -- The Icelord

Crip -- I can't remember the last time you were so verbose on a topic.  You know me,
when it comes to down-challenging, I think there is a time and place for it.  In war,
it should be expected.  Remember the old saying:  "The best offense is an ambush."
Having said that, I would agree that Jorja and The Middle Way should not be the
targets of this here in Crysalis.  I have nothing but respect for Jorja and her
warriors.  AK47 may feel justified, but perhaps he doesn't really know Jorja.  I
would ask him to cease his DCing of her.  Ultimately it is his choice.  I will wait
and see what transpires this next turn.  I also think you may be right that if the
COL and VC would be "sort of on the same side", then a snowstorm must be brewing in
the lower realms! -- The Icelord

     A snowstorm in the lower realms sounds like a good plan to me! -- K.

AK47 -- Normally, I have no complaints about down-challenging.  HOWEVER, I would ask
you to rethink doing so against Jorja here in Crysalis.  I don't know the history
between you two, so I'm not trying to tell you I know best.  However, many feel
strongly on this issue.  Please consider it. -- The Icelord (also, I'm not going to
be a hypocrite and flame someone for a DC because I think DCing in war is justified,
especially against the VC.)

All -- It seems The Icelord's idea of no weapons/no armor on Turn #150 has generally
been met favorably.  Crip's comment of setting up warriors versus weights (0-1) Fist
and (2+) Other Weapons, particularly in conjunction with my own comments of no
avoids/no challenges, should mostly protect our warriors against the rogue warriors/
managers wishing to take advantage of the situation.  Without wishing to impose my
thoughts on the rest of the arena, it seems to me the following guidelines, to which
I personally will abide, are appropriate:
     1.  If challenged strategy -- NO CONTEST!
     2.  For opponents weights (2+) -- NO CONTEST!
     3.  No avoids and no challenges.
     4.  No chastising those not wishing to participate.
                                                                  -- Sultan
P.S.  I think this is a great idea!  Thanks, Icelord.

Sultan -- Sir Vivor?  I assume you mean Sir Plus and Sir Ly?  Good thing someone is
watching out for your warriors. -- Crip

The Icelord -- My "time constraints" comment came after having written spotlights
that were about 4-6 pages long in the newsletter and heavy on number crunching
content, and that comment was sent in before your big push on barehandedness started
up.  I certainly do not have time to lead the contributions, but participating in
your brainstorm won't be a problem. -- Crip

AK47 -- Much better, not a downchallenge in sight last turn, and furthermore, Sandman
showed true honour in going after Kitala the Bold and feeding that Sand Dancer a
significant portion of dirt.  Four challenges through, average challenge +9 in
recognition, including a monstrous +33 for Matador, which results unfortunately, did
not bring a double dose of honour against the Sand Dancers.  Bravo Zulu, hopefully
this is a good sign. -- Crip

Baphomet -- Of course, if AK47 were to have challenged up in the majority of those
fights vs. the Sand Dancers, I doubt anyone would be harassing him now.  But more
relevant figures would have been Downchallenges going through vs. Total Challenges
going through.   Challenges vs. SandDancers vs. all challenges getting through would
also have been interesting, but irrelevant to either sides' case. -- Crip

Crusader Lord -- You keep forgetting, thou shalt not kill. -- Ten Commandments

Avonside -- Frankly, I'm a little surprised by that result.  Flame Broiled if I don't
say so myself. -- Burger King

Krac -- OK, I'll admit the FE mismatch was there, but hey, I am a Basher in the upper
ranks of ADM.  I feel as if I deserve a break somewhere. -- King Foraday

Talos -- You are improving. -- King Uvdahell

Sir Ly and Sir Plus -- A pair of Sirs cancel out a Pair of Queens.  What kind of
poker game is that? -- Dairy Queen and Beauty Queen

Fengar -- Well done on taking the throne, Warrior.  You are indeed a fine product of
The Icelord's training.  Est Sularis Oth Mithas! -- High Lord Bosk

The Icelord -- We are rather curious to see how many in the arena will actually go
bare-knuckled in their skivvies on Cycle 150.  Prince of Ar is washing his best
Sunday boxers for the occasion!  Tal Warrior. -- High Lord Bosk

Icelord -- Going barehanded and turn 150 sounds OK.  Should be good for learning
skills.  But if others wear armor I will use weapons. -- Daehir

Dairy Queen -- True I've been lucky.  But now I fear being run through for I am far
too high in the rankings. -- Belgoroth
P.S.  I still need like 10 skills.

Dunedin -- 13 hits but 10 were weak shots.  Now is that me being lucky or you being
unlucky?  Or is this the folly of using epees vs. plate? -- Belgoroth

AK47 -- Since you're so keen on this...here's my challenge to you.  A team of 0 FE
warriors in Aruak City for six months.  You vs. me.  Loser leaves Crysalis.  Wins and
losses vs. one another only score.  No avoiding.  Agreed? -- Baphomet (also mgr. of
Dog Soldiers in Aruak City)

Icelord -- AK47 is the perpetrator.  When I brought it to his attention he got
stupid.  Now it's...off with his head! -- Baphomet

Crip -- I'd bang his brains loose if I could get to him.  But...I'm a patient man. 
I'll be there all in good time.  Fortunately for him, your fuse is longer than mine.
-- Baphomet

The Mun -- Now, I'm pretty much a rookie compared to you but...whadda *@?! --
Baphomet

Mosgiel -- Man, if you're not gonna swing...retire! -- Sir Lancelot

Baphomet -- I have my own code of honor not yours.  When Matador was low enough in
ranking to downchallenge Sir Lancelot you chose not to fight him at all.  Your time
to glory yourself will soon come to an end.  Revenge is best served cold.  I accept
your challenge to feud. -- AK47 (seeing Sir Lancelot finally won a fight in Crysalis)

Kitala The Bold -- Your wrath was felt on my flesh but victory was mine.  This ends
our feud with your stable.  Your rudeness to Sandblaster has been forgiven. --
Sandman (being patted on his back by AK47)

All managers -- I am glad to see so many personal ads.  This has got to be good for
Crysalis.  Any personal friend of Hammer is a friend of mine.  Besides Knights
Templar who else will issue a challenge to do some feuding?  Feuding is a great way
to break the monotony. -- AK47 (getting ready for life after turn 150)

Icelord -- It is going to be great to see some bare-knuckles fights for a change.
This is going to be a great way to make turn 150 worthwhile.  Seems like the other
managers are going for it. -- AK47 (wondering how well he will do)

Carla -- Come on, girl!  62 points of recognition above me!  102 FE advantage, and
you teach me one skill, cheapskate! -- Debbie Dahmer

     She was probably too drunk.

Icelord -- Mano-e-mano, bare knuckles, turn 150, I'm there! -- Abraxis

Sandman -- You're getting really boring. -- Kitala the Bold
P.S.  But that's an Andorian for you.

Matador -- Do you sometimes wish all you had to worry about was being gored by a
bull?  Life is tough, isn't it? -- Kyra

Prookie -- And you should be glad!  In weather like this, who wouldn't appreciate
being blanketed by a... Snowfall?

Weinermun -- Heck, and I was all ready with my beans. -- Mirta

Tiger Shark Hammer -- Hmm, I didn't realize I looked like a nail.... -- Sunflash

Bismarck -- (dismayed look)  I wasn't ready for you, because this is a T-day. --
Dannia tyl Sio

Rancid Waif -- Whew!  Pretty ripe there, kid.  How about if I treat you to a trip to
the barber? -- Egan Forn
P.S.  Or maybe even a complete bathhouse package?

King Foraday -- But is not your reign in jeopardy every time the sun sets? -- Mirta

Crip -- Oh, hey, not Noblish!  I've got warriors there, too! -- Jorja

Hammer -- I appreciate your stance, but there's no point to getting bent out of shape
by the Andorian Knights.  I can take it, and so can my warriors, and better he should
be boring me than you! -- Jorja

Baphomet -- Well... he did say he's Delarquan at heart. -- Jorja
P.S.  You should have received a bundle of minovers from me by the time this arena
runs.  Hope they help.

Count us in for a bare-knuckle contest on turn 150. -- Sand Dancers and Middle Way

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.)

a member of the Vendetta Cartel MUST DO THE FOLLOWING:

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
