                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     Greetings, connoisseurs of Bonsur.  Here in the arena life as well as that of the 
shops, we are about the essentials, the staples, the luxuries that enable life to go 
on, enhance it at critical moments, and end it at others.  We are in the cusp of the 
waking moment.  Yes, we see the ebb and flow of kings, whose movements and 
machinations change elements of the life flow.  But it is our decisions, our movements 
here at the level of the sand where truth is experienced.  The moan of the lover, the 
cry of the newborn, the roar of the warrior, and the death rattle of the passing, it 
is all in the grain of sand.  The sand witnesses all, kings and beggers and all 
between. 
     What story are you telling the sand?

                                          Yours in good taste,
                                          Madame I.M. Madame,
                                          Ladies of Quality

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     * Perches her muscular backside on the throne *
     Better.  Gotta spend time in this chair, it is all about the cushions.  High 
quality backside deserves nothing less.  Anyway, the Ladies are about good taste.  Not 
only are you a tasty mechanism, Scone Golem, that was a clash of titans.  Armored  
behemoths whaling on each other.  That is a crowd pleaser.
     So, who's next?

                                          -- Spice, Ladies of Quality

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in BONSUR this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
THE MENTORS 12 is pushed out of top team by SENTINELS, who came from 2nd with a 2-3-0 
this turn.  And let's see, MS. REFINEMENT fought NORTH STAR and gained 25 points and 
contributed to LADIES OF QUALITY's 3-2-1.  NORTH STAR has lost to MS. REFINEMENT, 
falling 11 points, while helping make SENTINELS a 2-3-0 turn.  And not without some 
honor, SILVER PINNACLE now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of BONSUR.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Welcome Wench?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the LADIES OF 
QUALITY stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on BONSUR, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided LADIES OF QUALITY stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was SHEWISH PICNIC.  Anyone surprised?   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in BONSUR, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in BONSUR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
