                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     It is not often that I spotlight The Bulldogs as a team in Aruak City.  True, we
have been present a long, long time.  And it is true that we love Aruak City, the
Heart and Soul of Andoria.  We have seen the many changes of time, yet we Aruakians
remain true to the honor that is Aruak City.
     But that is not my message today.  I come to speak and spotlight two important
members of The Bulldogs who have taken a path of significant honor.
     First is Puppy Love.  Last turn Amy of Khans Of Calamity ended Love's life in a
well fought random match.  Puppy Love has now headed to that Great Arena In The Sky
to fight for eternity.  We will miss her.  She was a 9-9-12-13-7-13-21 Aimer, who was
blessed with great damage and +2 attack.  She knew her life could be precarious in
the arena, but she chose the way.  She died with honor, just as Amy won the match
with honor.  We offer a salute to the fallen Bulldog.
     Next is Tenderloin, who has chosen to leave the arena life through The Dark
Arena.  Tenderloin knew from the beginning that he would have much to overcome to be
a competitor in the arena, as he was born with so many handicaps.  He worked
diligently to strengthen his weaknesses and to accentuate his minimal strengths.  He
did so with great honor and humility.  Now, his request for The Dark Arena has been
honored.  Tenderloin, heading into that dark place is a 15(+2)-8(+1)-11-9(+2)-17(+2)-
12(+2)-21 basher who was further hosed with normal damage at the start and -3 or 4
defense.  He worked hard to compile the near 50% record (7-8) that he did.  His
experiments with weapons did little, yielding 0/26/1ML, 1/21/0WH, 5/29/0GA, and
4/38/1MA.  We also offer a salute to Tenderloin for his choice of the path of honor.
     Times are difficult as there are those who through jealousy or spite feel the
need to disrupt, or even destroy, the Aruak City way of life.  We Bulldogs salute all
of you, like our fallen comrades, who have chosen the way of Health, Humility, and
Honor.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARUAK CITY to 
see what's new.  I couldn't believe it.  Did BRAT PACK II really go up by 11?  If 
only those guys didn't have so may missing teeth...  Gross!  I don't wanna hurt 
anybody's feelings or anything, but ANIMAL FARM really goofed with their 1-3-0.  One 
team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 3-0-0.  Keep it up, 
SKASMONAUTS!  MVP award for DARX?  EXTREME TV's proud of him after beating BLUNDER 
DASH and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  FUZZBALL got smashed by 
BONNIE RAITT, and lost 15 points!  Like, LONNIE JOHNSON must be pretty gutsy!  He 
challenged the Duelmaster from THE BLUES.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  
This Duelmaster is like something else!  T-BONE WALKER stopped LONNIE JOHNSON dead in 
his tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  
They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  NEVERWAKE was the most avoided team.  Is a 41-40-4 record really 
that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are COLORIFIC?  NEVERWAKE, an easy team to 
beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is BRANFORD 
HAWKE popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ARUAK CITY!  He's got a 
11-9-0, is that good?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out ALMOND 
ALBATROSS challenged RAINSONG.  After all, haven't ANIMAL FARM and ELFQUEST had a 
long standing duel in ARUAK CITY?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but 
RAINSONG wants me to write about it since she beat ALMOND ALBATROSS.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  I hear BULLDOGS sent TENDERLOIN to the 
Dark Arena.  What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  What a bummer deal for EMILIO 
ESTEUEZ!  He just barely was getting his "fighter feet" but got kill by WARDUKE of 
SCARLET KNIGHTS II!  Those're the breaks, I guess.  I was SO depressed when I heard 
SLAG got killed.  He was just a kid, and didn't get a fair chance in ARUAK CITY, or 
anything!  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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

Doc Steele -- So it begins with you down-challenging one of my gladiators.  Pretty
low and dirty from somebody who professes so much arrogance, especially when you
lose!  I won't be down-challenging you, as I will not stoop to sullying my good name
as you have.  Not that you have or had a good name, but the sullying bit...you know.
-- Tankesh

Well, if the remaining Invaders are too chicken raise their hands to call us
(defenders) out, weeding you from the bunch will not be too hard.  I already know two
downchallengers <cough> Neverwake <cough> Snugglebunnies....  Plus I've already got
Kellumbo's number.  If there are any other wannabes out there who'd like to prove
their honor, or at least their manhood, feel free to raise your hand and say 'I am
proud to be an Invader'. -- Tankesh, Mgr. Tuft Tuggers, Devoted Defender of Aruak

Kennelworth -- Well, I suppose just this once, I can set aside my own arrogance,
which I'd never admit to of course.  Let's start at 0-0 this turn and see how the
tuft collection goes from there.  Good luck! -- Tankesh

Dik-Dik -- I wouldn't be surprised if you chalk everything up to luck.  But if you're
going to be so narrow minded, might as well chalk your winning record up to luck too.
-- Segallion

Billy Gibbons -- Sorry about that, I went for the easy win. -- Segallion

Lonnie Johnson -- I just couldn't get possession of the puck, despite my excellent
defense, which of course left me without even a shot on goal.  Well done. -- Zlatina

Bonnie Raitt -- I'm surprised your record is even as good as it is! -- Branford

Cyclone -- I was the downdraft that snuffed your convection.  Of course, I didn't
expect the down challenge from a manager that supposedly prefers to not have the
ability to do so in the game. -- Eliza
P.S.  That's one tuft in our favor.  1-0.

Keb' Mo' -- That...was cool. -- Kalidor

Congratulations to T-Bone Walker, Duelmaster of Aruak.  Drinks for the DM are on the
Bulldog Inn!  And congrats to he and Cherry Cheetah on their immortality. -- Adie

Wall of Glass -- Someone must have drugged me.  I haven't looked that bad since I was
a lowly initiate! -- Dik-Dik

Skamakaze -- Just like batting practice.  Swing until your tired. -- Steel

Calfskin -- Wow!  You almost had me there!  Just a few more skills and I think you'll
be able to do it!  Don't give up! -- Positive Polyana

Gladius Starstryke -- Maybe you need to concentrate on hitting with a weapon more,
and a star less. -- Ice

Tankesh -- Moron. -- Detective Kellumbo

T-Bone -- Next turn, I'm coming for ya, bub! -- Dik-Dik
P.S.  Which assures you will avoid me, but what the heck, a guy's gotta try.

Tankesh -- You commoner!  You would speak to a Purple People Eater in that way?  So
rash and unfit for you, Buster Brown.  Plenty of steam here with the Proud Colorifics
--just keep reading that newsletter, pal, week after week.  Watch top teams; do you
know where that is?  Blue Blazes, Blue Velvet, Yellow Streak--W, W, W last week.
Losses at zip.  (That means zero, Pal.)  Were you present?  And how did the Tankers
do?  Rather, do you have any steam--or is it all blubber? -- Purple People Eater,
Proud Colorific Manager

Slag -- Oh my!  Oh, I am sooooooooooo sorry that I challenged and ruined that perfect
little record of yours.  Was it painful?  I'm also almost sorry I nearly killed you,
too.  Perhaps you need some more tournament experience to prep you for the real life?
You know what they say, "A Doc a day keeps the apple away."  And they also say, "What
in the......... -- Blue Blazes", Proud Colorific

Samira -- You may be fleet, but I've got the streak. -- Yellow Streak, Proud
Colorific

Skatterbrain -- Geez!  You think you shoulda won that, huh?  My luck is downright
velvet. -- Blue Velvet, Proud Colorific

Doodlebug -- Surprise, surprise!  You looked too dangerous with that record to allow
you to strike first--or last! -- Purple Panther

Dik Dik -- "Chicken"?  Big words from the mouth of one who cannot even stay in the
Challenger Champs to compete for Duelmaster.  Actions speak louder than words, Little
One. -- Cherry Cheetah

Blimey 'n congrats ta yon T-Bone Walker, champeen 'o Aruak City. -- Mino and all The
Critters

Tankesh, my friend, as I stated earlier, I am for the complete posting of oil
renditions of all of our "Tournament Champion Warriors" that embody the spirit of the
best of The Heart and Soul of Andoria.  I must admit that my absence and semi-
retirement caused me to lose track of all that type of important work.  I depend on
my partner, The Lady Adie, to right the wrong.  We must proudly hang paintings of all
our "honored" on the walls of The Bulldog Inn.  Perhaps, if we approach The Lady
(whenever Cho and Fandil find her and bring her home) together, she will place a
priority on this mission? -- Kennelworth, Manager of The Bulldogs, and proprietor of
The Bulldog Inn

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Aruak City, The Heart and Soul of Andoria! -- Kennelworth

Congratulations to T-Bone Walker, a fine champion, and Duelmaster of Aruak City.
Come on over to The Bulldog Inn, Sir Walker, and drink free as our top warrior. --
Kennelworth, Proprietor

Lini -- Gross?  That's just life in the fast lane. -- Bullomia

Memphis Minnie -- You were simply too much woman for me.  Well done. -- Tenderloin

Positive Pollyanna -- It worked!  You remained positive and skinned me late.  Salute!
-- Calfskin

Your Kidz -- I thought for a while that I was dogmeat, then I showed my true make-up.
-- Hot Dog

Taj -- Couldn't do it before; couldn't do it now.  Probably never can.  Shucks.  Well
fought. -- Bullomia, feeling really, really unfulfilled

Kalidor -- What I meant last time was "I didn't have what it takes, but I sure was
lucky." -- Calfskin

Yellow Streak -- (sourly)  Goes with your style, I suppose.  Oh, well, I suppose
somebody's got to do it. -- Samira Fleet

The Singing Bandit -- Oh, I liked that FINE.  Maybe we can sing together some day. --
Rockie Dee

Salena Warsmith -- (listlessly)  Good fight. -- Nila Sundancer

Joe -- That was a calamity, all right.  For me, anyway.  And I would judge it to be
an unnecessary calamity.  I could have lived for YEARS without that.  Happily. --
Ghost of Kadallon

Timmorn Yellow Eyes -- My mama always told me, "Lini, never trust a man with yellow
eyes."  I think she meant my father, but I can see that there is a more general
applicability! -- Lini Dawnwind, limbering up her distrust

Segallion -- (modest smile)  It's perseverance more than skill. -- Nila

Bullomia -- (appalled look)  No thanks, I'll stick with exercise to keep my figure!
-- Lini Dawnwind

The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
