Greetings Connoisseurs of Bonsur,

Another year draws upon us and the sands thirst anew.  But we can take a moment and 
deny the sands.  Only a moment, but a necessary one, for in this moment, in the mind's 
eye, a year passes before us in all its joys and sorrows, agonies and ecstacies, sweet 
howl at the stars ecstacy.  Surely a moment of coming (pun intended) sublime pleasure 
is worthy of enduring transient discomfort?

I surely think so.

Yours in good taste,

Madame I.M. Madame

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, back again.  Guess my power swing is climbing.  Used to be, pounding on a 
Khalums Dwarf felt like trying to break a bounder on a chain gang.  Still does, but 
now I hit hard enough to break boulders.  *flexes a mighty bicep*  Give me my muscles 
and a moment, there is nothing, no one, I can't wreck.  Thanks for leaving my cushions 
here, Pinnace.  They were made custom for my a$$.  This is a superior posterior and 
not just any cushions will do.

                                          -- Spice, Ladies of Quality

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  BONSUR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for THE 
TEACH?  LADIES OF QUALITY's proud of her after beating MOBILE CITADEL and getting 27 
points.  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, 
welcome SILVER PINNACLE.  Aren't SENTINELS proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that 
said BONSUR's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look 
at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of SENTINELS must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Is there 
some deep dark secret why CHURCH LADIES' been avoiding SENTINELS so much?  Or is it 
just that they're too scared?  People were asking me did PENELOPE REALLY challenge 
SUNSPIRE?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but SUNSPIRE wants me to write about it since he was 
defeated by PENELOPE.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All BONSUR ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What a bummer!  MOBILE CITADEL got wasted by THE TEACH!  But 
with a 17-13-0, I guess SENTINELS aren't too bummed.  That was so totally rude when 
THE TEACH wasted MOBILE CITADEL.  I think all you warriors in BONSUR should gang up 
on LADIES OF QUALITY!  SPICE's pretty happy--she wasted ACE and didn't even get a 
Bloodfeud from THE MENTORS 12!  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would 
like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  BONSUR is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
