                       Reflections by the Champion of the Horn

     I beat Darkmoon Blackfell, and vicious does not even begin to cover how I felt 
while doing it.
     And then there's how I felt afterward, which was Triumphant.

                                        Khora the Small

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Well, here's a thing.  I get back from vacation, and what do I find?  A mere 
eighteen fights, which is bad enough.  No personals, unless we count the Sand 
Dancers.  One challenge.  One avoid.  And that's IT.  So tell me, why did anybody 
show up at all?  Just for the free burgers and beer, I bet.
     Oh, well, I hope ALL of you had good vacations, and that you're now ready to 
buckle down to it here in Lirin Kiv.  And elsewhere.  There are other places that 
would appreciate active warriors, active managers, and personals.  But not till we've 
got our share.  Charity is not the only thing that begins at home!

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

We don't have our fights to do comments with immediacy and relevance, but in the 
interests of keeping a dialog going, here are some semi-random comments. -- Li Dan 
and the Sand Dancers

Bat -- Damn.  If I have to keep losing, I wish it would be to somebody who noticed 
and appreciated it.  Maybe I should consider retiring.  There are bound to be plenty 
of young warriors ready to step in. -- Tairikia

Shylock -- You know, I believe Tairikia may have a point.  I'll have to look into it. 
-- Toryn tyl Dageda

Tom Riddle -- (heavy sigh)  This is "paying my dues," isn't it? -- Essina tyl Vern

Uhlek -- Aha!  Good loss.  Handy, as the saying goes. -- Damoreth Stenn

Gregory Goyle -- Sometimes I wonder why I keep doing this.  Softening of the brain, 
probably. -- Darlina

Tom Riddle -- Better be quick, then, because I am thinking seriously about 
retirement.  If it is a burning ambition in you, say the word and I'll stick around 
until you DO beat me. -- Tairikia, feeling generous

Vincent Crabbe -- Everyone is happy when he wins, but I am not, I hope, so small-
minded as to rain on your parade.  Good luck to you. -- Darlina

Vincent Crabbe -- I wish!  Have YOU ever tried job hunting here on the Isle?  There 
are THOUSANDS of inactive gladiators trying to make ends meet, and anyone who comes 

between them and a paycheck gets beaten up promptly.  I actually get by less 
painfully as a standby on a basic subsidy who only gets beaten up occasionally. -- 
Samal, the Unemployed Person

Rillion -- Good luck on your goal of graduating all five original warriors.  After 
fortifying myself with garlic (fends off the undead), I will attend the next Dead 
Tourney and cheer you on. -- Larkin
P.S.  Anybody have an idea how many other currently active managers have achieved 
this?

                            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!

Cartel Tarantula Tribe
