                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     It's a sad thing when the Clishay Gang comes along, all set for trouble, takes a
look around, and just... LEAVES.  They said this "isn't the real Aradi."  I couldn't
really argue the point.
     How about we either revive this arena, or close it?  The current "walking dead"
status is painful to watch and frankly embarrassing.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Virginal Gigolo smells funny.  Perfume or something, I guess, I don't know
except that it hurts my nose.  So I hurt his nose.  With my teeth.

                                        Garm

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but BUGS, SLUGS & THUGS will tell you 111-156-9 is nothing to laugh at...  
RED DOG GANG had cause to celebrate, after KOTTER got 14 points by beating FRIENDLY 
CONSTABLE.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, BUT GARM is still 
the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  So who's the team that's 
been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me. 
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARADI is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
