                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

From the STEEL WOLVES 4 fighter profile reports, as submitted by Manager and
Overseer, Lobo, to the Commission.
                                       *  *  *
SUBJECT:  XUL YLL T'ARAKIS, Male
SCOUTING REPORT:  Large of stature--imposing, almost.  Very, very few come much
bigger.  Handles his preferred weapon, the shortspear, adequately.  Stereotypically,
larger fighters are associated with slow-wittedness, but T'Arakis seems brighter than
one would expect.  Surprisingly quick.
                                       *  *  *
SUBJECT:  SEPHIROTH GRAY, Male
SCOUTING REPORT:  Agile, quick-witted, and graceful with a practiced deftness.
Handles most bladed weapons well, including the shortsword, the longsword, and
longspear.  Prefers armors which do not inhibit mobility.  Rather well-rounded, with
no overt weakness.  Perhaps a little on the frail side.
                                       *  *  *
SUBJECT:  RALLASTER THORN, Male
SCOUTING REPORT:  Short but stocky, fancies himself the second coming of Dirk
Cholera; although weapon choice is different, fighting approach is similar.  With
training, subject could be less uncoordinated.  Rather tough and tenacious.
                                       *  *  *
SUBJECT:  SELUNE STAREDGE, Female
SCOUTING REPORT:  Possible long-term potential is very good, if she survives initial
fights.  Immediate training should focus on coordination and physical training.
Until then, if heavy armor isn't too cumbersome, consideration must be given to its
use; subject is quite susceptible to damage.
                                       *  *  *
SUBJECT:  Zannah Drake, Female
SCOUTING REPORT:  The quickest recruit so far, and possibly the most intelligent.
Adept with light, parrying weapons that produce quick definite attacks.  Subject must
endear herself to the crowd, as her methods are not typically popular with an
audience who prefers offensive-minded gladiators.  Will rely on her finesse and
maneuverability to rack up wins.
                                       *  *  *
To the Commission:
     Enclosed are the five fighters I have personally recruited for your arena in
Chimlevtal, to bear the Steel Wolves' crest.  All five are eager and, I assure you,
worthy of the sands.  With your permission, I'd like them to engage in combat
immediately.
     Thank you.
     Lobo, mgr. Steel Wolves 4

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     BRING IT ON!  Dutiful, I have seen you fight and you are just not ready to be
Duelmaster.  Wakizashi, you have paid your dues and you can have the top spot as soon
as I leave this arena.  I am planning on parking at this spot for a while as I train
up my new stablemates.  In the meantime, I will be here waiting....

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon CHIMLEVTAL, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in CHIMLEVTAL, with 
changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--MIDDLE WAY 
7.  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to MIDDLE WAY 7.  Like a new team fighting for the first time 
and entering the official rankings, STEEL WOLVES 4 got 4-1-1 to come in 6th.  BAD 
NEWS BEES had cause to celebrate, after DRONE-ON got 19 points by beating WAKIZASHI.  
Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, FLYBY was winsome, after beating ROSEMARY 
and seeing her lose 13 points.  Like a flirtacious debutante, CHIMLEVTAL's Duelmaster 
BUMBLE found himself the man of the hour, being "invited to dance" 2 times!  The 
arena was more crowded than usual this time, as DUTIFUL faced CHIMLEVTAL's 
Duelmaster.  DUTIFUL found out that CHIMLEVTAL isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be 
the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in CHIMLEVTAL is taking speech 
lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in MORE 
DESTROYERS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, THE FARSEERS scurried away from MORE DESTROYERS.  
Oh, the shame!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Sober up, young warriors, and take note of SPARTAN #301's fate!  PANDA ROSS of MIDDLE 
WAY 7 handily did him in.  Experience counts for something on CHIMLEVTAL's sands.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in CHIMLEVTAL would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed 
simile, I now bid CHIMLEVTAL farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Daikkan -- Now I am sure you sealed my fate to the Dark Arena. -- Patience

All -- Time to find a new stable to hold the Duelmaster's throne? -- The Catalyst

All -- What Arenas do you guys have teams running in? -- The Catalyst, mgr. The
Farseers

All -- I read the Catalyst's ad regarding new warriors' potential (or lack thereof)
in last month's newsletter, and I share the same concerns.  When is the Dark Arena
valuable, especially for managers like myself who can't really afford the fighting
fees of losing warriors?  I'd much rather pay for a warrior who's 50% or better, with
a chance of graduating, than a poorly built guy who's somewhere around 2-7-0 on his
win-loss column, right?
     Oh, hello Jorja.  The information packets you sent are manifest in these
Chimlevtal wolves.  Thanks (again).
     Good luck to everyone.  See you on the sands! -- Lobo, mgr. Steel Wolves 3

Corwin -- It happens, and if we needed a reminder of that, some of our colleagues in
other arenas have gone on killing sprees with NO CHANGE IN STRATEGY AT ALL.  There
must be some kind of, ah, blood tide or something. -- Jorja, Middle Way

Shrewd -- That was the plan. -- Rondor Sendal

The Catalyst -- That is probably a good question, but without more specifics, I don't
think I can answer it.  Still, I gotta try--
      Have you made use of the Consortium information packet from Noblish Island to
determine approximate starting skills and other such secondary (to the basic
overview) information?  Is the warrior in question one of the styles that normally
starts slowly?  I'd say those would be AB, PL, PR, PS, WS, most likely.  Both pure
offensives and total parries tend to begin fairly well, or have obvious problems.  Is
the warrior appropriately armed and armored?

      Most important of all, to my thinking, do you enjoy reading the fights even
though you lose?  When you get right down to it, this is a game and it's played for
fun.  If a warrior isn't fun, why pay to keep running him? -- Jorja

Rebekka -- I just can't make it with aggressive women. -- Lumus Nelp

Katana -- I soothe myself with the hope that you have hidden tourney fights that even
up our experience levels.  The gods know there isn't anything ELSE to soothe myself
with. -- Mandin Orwell

An Ambitious Guard, ha.  An Ambitious Fool. -- Rondor Sendal

Aries Kane -- Two things about your performance struck me (or Jorja, I was busy
fighting for my life) as points you should consider:  You should think about reducing
your encumbrance, probably by reducing your armor.  That's why you got tired.  And
you need more attack skills badly, as indicated by the flailing.  It might be worth
training some relevant stats to increase those skills in the fastest way.  I mean,
*I* defeated you, with my (still) marginally suitable weapon.  Which I REALLY want
fixed, but things move so SLOWLY.  Still, it could actually be worse:  I heard of one
case where a lunger was sent out with a warflail!  She died, of course. -- Panda Ross

All -- Thank you for the well wishes for Buzz-Buzz.  I will pass it on. -- Stinger

Catalyst -- Everywhere I look, I see your warriors in my way.  You leave me no
choice. -- Flyby
