                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

Greetings, connoisseuers.  Well, it is a bit of a new day in our fair city, ol' 
Bonsur.  The Ladies of Quality have their first Duelmaster (Duelmistress).  Now, it 
sort of surprises me that it is Spice.  Not to disparage the tasteful talents of our 
strongest Qualiteen.  But, her style is unorthodox for a team focused on refinement.  
But still, as the saying goes, whatever works.  Spice is every bit the lady.  She is 
as refined in manner and bearing as any in my stable.  Just, though, in the arena, she 
is not a soft touch.  Or subtle.  Not remotely.  This should be interesting.  Now, 
noble warriors, I give you the Titan of Taste, Tower of Titillation, or as some call 
her in whispers, the Grande Damme of Teetons... Spice, it is your spotlight.

                                          -- Madame I.M. Madame

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hm... Growing up, I was considered a bit of a tomboy.  I was known for outwrestling 
all the boys in my village, though as I... grew, they seemed to want to come back for 
later rounds, no matter how badly I bruised or broke something.  It took me a bit of 
time to figure out what they enjoyed.  But I figured it out.  Shoeing a horse all by 
myself and forging weapons is all fine and good, but it impresses few when you are a 
girl.  Then I met Madame I.M. Madame.  She told me she could teach me all the rules of 
high society, how to conduct myself like a lady, and yet use my skills and prowess I 
had already demonstrated.  She also schooled me in just what it was about me that the 
boys seemed to like and how to work it to my advantage.  All weapons in my arsenal.

So look, but don't touch.  I like the touching, but better be sure I'm ok with what 
and who is doing the touching.

Next column, I'll talk about my sister, Sugar.  She should have never played this 
game.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in BONSUR a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  WRATHMEN 2 stable has parlayed 
this turn's 0-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 4th 
place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, TALLISH fought FRATSFA SLAVE and gained 10 
points and contributed to LADIES OF QUALITY's 5-0-1.  Defending hers title for 
another turn, SPICE kept BONSUR's warrior, CONVICTED ASSASSIN, from claiming the 
throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at The Welcome Wench?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
