                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     The leader of teh Dead Circus is quickly approaching.  Behind it--a demented,
twisted illusion of a carnival.  This traveling wind of human nightmares consists of
games and rides that would be considered torture to those of a mortal life, but to
the gods of judgements, 'tis a show which every wicked soul must eventually witness
and endure, for the eyes that see are the eyes which will no longer be.
     Your ticket has arrived--make way for the Ringmaster, manager of the Insane
Clown Posse, Vilent J and Shagge 2 Dope, for  the Professor under who's tutelage come
the tournament victor the Red Viper and Stong Belwas, and last but obviously not
least, Brienne, the countess of the damned, who is managed by but one man--the
Postman!

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is I, who is none other than the champ; Sir Finbar Galedeep wish to send my
biggest nod of appreciation to my manager Lord Scorpio himself!!
     Scorpio said I am his first Duelmaster so that means I shall aim to be the first
Lord Protector for Aradi under his liege.
     May the challenges continue for my war flail is thirsty for more blood!!

The champ is here!!!

                         Sir Finbar GAledeep
                         Duelmaster of Aradi

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARADI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  LADY AKSANA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested THE 'STIFF and was awarded 15 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LADY AKSANA put down THE 
'STIFF, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Most watched of 
the fights this week, the spotlight was on THE BLUNDERDOG as he bore arms against the 
challenge of reigning Duelmaster SIR FINBAR GALEDEEP.  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail THE BLUNDERDOG, Duelmaster of ARADI!  Heed this!  A 
seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall 
perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ARADI "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
ARADI these days is UNNAMEABLES.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding UNNAMEABLES.  Indeed it was THE ELITE.  Loose talk 
at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after DUCKETT.  Watch your back!  As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip of fear 
lays hold of his heart.  True, ZOLO?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of 
DUCKETT?  All the city knows the duel went in favor of ZOLO.  I shall not fail to 
spread the word in other cities of this "mighty" victory.  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that KITANA SUKI posted a challenge against 
the more highly recognized ALLAWALLA.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand 
KITANA SUKI lost to ALLAWALLA.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Look no more for FOURST DAG in the arena or on the 
streets of ARADI.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 
8-10-0.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets 
enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ARADI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, 
indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await 
me!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The 
wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Well done Sir Finbar!!  Hold the crown!! -- Scorpio

Ye ain't gonna be the Elite's first Lord Protector!!  I am you Nimrod. -- Zolo

This is supposed to be an Andorian Arena!  Let us act like it.  New teams:  Favorite
Sayings and Metal Meltdown, introduce yourselves! -- Scorpio

     No, the island of Aradi seceded from the Andorian League years ago, and no one's
     tried to get it back.  We like it this way. -- Arenamaster Harkon

We wag a tail for the tourney participants. -- Spot and the pack

Three-two.  I think three-two, but maybe it was two-three?  If it was dog biscuits,
I'd be sure, but... eh.  Not that it matters to us.  Chasing things, chewing on
things, and then a nap.  Life is good. -- Spot
