Slam's site, alias NAB.net, needs very little introduction here. Do check out his various pages. The best idea used to be to subscribe to his newsletter, so that when he does an update, particularly one adding new maps, you get to hear about it fast, but nowadays, just check at weekends for the latest - or go to his idrive account. For insight into the NAB maps, and how to create or adapt such highly desirable items, let Captain Mellow be your guide! The Blast Zone, Tiggy's site, is worth visiting regularly (though it is currently having problems, so may not be accessible). Tiggy brought us the 007TempleRemix, and more recently Thunder. Icedude has started his own site now, and is working on some remixes and other stuff, so is worth visiting, while Ions, who provides the "13th Monkey" server, with the built-in "fat boy" mutator, has got a site as well, though not one that is updated at all regularly.
To enjoy the fine, traditional sport of "whack-a-rat", you do need to have shockwave installed; if you do not have it already, it may be a 10/15 minute download, but it is worth having. With it, you can also explore the full range of William "Captain James T. Kirk" Shatner's acting prowess with the "Sim Shatner" web page. Visit America's premier organ of irony, The Onion, thanks to our thoughtful link. Just remember that, if you want to come back to the quieter reaches of cyberspace, your trusty back button can get you back here...
Tweety's site is well worth visiting, especially for the bios and stories. Sadly, he has not have the time to update it for many months now. As for what I have called "somebody else's nerf site", I don't know a lot about it, I just found it when searching through Homestead using "nerf" as the keyword. It is probably long forgotten by its maker, but has some interesting screenshots. It also had a useful link to an excellent review of Nerf ArenaBlast, which we have put on the next button down for you. We still have our link up for the site for Falcon (Player4), previously known as Peppy4, while Ranger's site used to be well worth a look, though really only created as a "work in progress" - expect something more substantial eventually! Zech's Nerf Page seemed mainly concerned with a mapbuilding project, so take a look and, if you would like to be involved, get in touch with him. Justin's site is hardly ever updated now, while Skippy had some time on his hands while he waited for a replacement for the processor he fried - visit him, but be aware that it is probably, sadly, another site that may never be updated again...
On the Nerf Fiction front, as well as "Into the Arena" and our revised version of "The Loneliness of Command", we now have "Downtime" to offer you - check out the appropriate blue button, and let us know what you think. Tweety has a number of fast-moving stories on his site, and DRC member Renegade has also been moved to write a tale called "Happy Halloween" - at least, I think the web page template he selected gave him the title, but he provided us with a spine-chilling tale in good time for that particular festival. Who needs Buffy and Xander when you can read about Phoebe and Todd? Readers of a nervous disposition are advised to keep their pointers well away from that particular button! Icedude has started an interesting serial, too, and is asking for suggestions on how the story should proceed.
There are so many websites out there, and so many search engines. If you have the time and the energy, why not do a search for nerf sites? You will mainly find sites devoted to the "paintballing" style real-world game, and most Nerf ArenaBlast references the search engines turn up tend to just lead you to the same three or four magazine reviews, but if you find something interesting, do let us know, and we will add the appropriate button to this page. Of course, if you have a site, tell us about that! Please don't be shy, we will be happy to add your link. While we would be glad if you put up a link back to us (http:www.NerfArena.com), that isn't a condition of the deal - we just want this to be the best Nerf ArenaBlast links page around!

We like to think that this is the biggest and best Links page for Nerf ArenaBlast sites - but if you know of any other ones that we should add, let us know! We don't deal with the "real-world" Nerf sites, except for our token link to NERF MAYHEM, run by kindly old Dr Genius - he has a pretty good links page of his own you can use to go in that direction! Lucky's site is mainly "real-world", so he asked not to be linked; you can find the address in the "ReadMe" files that come with his excellent map remixes. Sean's site is mainly "real-world", come to that, but we link directly to his main NAB page, for your convenience. We also have the WEB RING banner at the foot of this page, which makes a convenient way to browse through the various NAB sites. Sharpknux has started an excellent NAB FORUM, with various topics moderated by various players - do check it out, and sign up! But we are going to have to do a sorting-out soon, as too many of these sites have not been updated for months. We will at least give the active sites greater prominence... The first step is to changed the inactive site links to grey, rather than orange... Now maybe we should update this page's text a bit, too!
Boomslang used to be called Missing. His site is one of the top NAB venues, with downloads, news, and even a chat room, plus other keen stuff, so be sure to visit! And I couldn't pass on without a mention for the DRC CLAN PAGE, since we used to actually host it on this site; it is a different kind of site, which some people love and others hate! A newer clan is Dragon Clan; their rather classy pictures of dragons take a while to download, unless you have a broadband connection, though. Assasinator has a site, too, with his maps for download, plus background and news (and screenshots) of his new projects. And we have added FeEdiKo's maps downloads page, FeeMapsOne! B-Ball's site has a lot to offer, including general news, his own maps, and reports on the construction of maps coming soon, plus some excellent screenshots.
The Iron Wolves may have disbanded as a clan, but Reaper, their leader, made a new site of his own which was very frequently updated, and an excellent source for downloads. Now that he has, sadly, retired, Sharpknux and Lucky are responsible for keeping it updated. Tmon's site is another good place for such things, especially the remixes that he and his father, Tux_the_Penguin, are doing. Alfie used to have his own website, and a much-visited and well-loved one it was too, but he has given it up. He started the less ambitious, but still interesting, Red Storm Clan site, but that seems to have died, followed by a similarly short-lived "Ice" site. Agent007 had got a useful new site, including news, downloads, and tips on how to "tweak" written clearly and expertly. Well, it explained stuff that I didn't know! Unfortunately, his computer now refuses to run NAB. Mr Bobbo's site contained some interesting "back to basics" map-making tutorials, and he had his maps available for download, including BigBo and more...but he has left us now. And Galen99 has his own site, home page for the JLG (Jesus Lover Guys, or Girls) clan. He may well have a new map or two to post there soon, so keep checking... And Black Dragon has his large site up now, with more than 20 pages and some interesting screenshots! Followed by CurtSquirt, who got off to an interesting start - new maps on his idrive, regular updates by him and/or Mikesmaf, certainly somewhere to visit regularly!
