Acrise & Excess (Ger,Hol)
The coop still continued but without the release of
their magazine Nitro or Sanforized.
Even though they have both been promised, it appears
Nitro will be the first to arrive.

Sush left Laxity and joined in and Creb left Laxity to
remain in the cooperation.
In the meantime Artex got booted for inactivity and
Fli quitted the scene to move to another country.
Bad news with Authentic and Twynn leaving the group
for other ventures, Riddler left them also to
concentrate on his activities within Swedish based
group, Active.
All is not lost however, La * Style/Motiv8 allowed his
board to be used as a support bbs for Acrise & Excess
but never joined them and remains still in Motiv8.
Galactus decided to leave the group and to shut down
his bbs BLUE GALAXY and then try sell the equipment,
so that leaves them without an American board.
Mendrake will release Megamadness edition #11
sometime this summer and is currently helping with
the reconstruction of American group NOT (Noble
Order of Thieves)
Under some confusion, Escic joined in as graphician,
as a rumour was spread he joined Onslaught, but this
turned out to be false.
Nasty Boy and Echo got kicked out in the meantime.
Mail trader H-Bloxx left Scs*Trc to focus on Acrise
and Excess and to also help edit the Nitro magazine,
he is also having some activities on the Amiga scene.
Hopefully more productions will follow soon from this
group, as there is plenty of talent to be used.
