                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

Greetings Connoisseurs,
     It is getting hot in here and on the arena sands.  This makes the dance extra 
slippery.  Extra steamy.  Extra sexy.  So every year, the Ladies of Quality show the 
latest in cutting-edge swimwear.  
     Tonight at the Golden Runway...
     Tallish -- One of our two remaining original members, our tall, lean, tower of
power rocks her curves and powerful physique in a number that looks like metal bands 
in the horizontal, chains in the vertical.  Beauty and power, that's our Tallish.
     The Teach -- Our magistra of matriculation tears herself from her books and 
blades in what appears to be shimmering Osksi silk that strategically moves aside to
reveal the toned sleek form underneath, or a flash of her dark, knowing eyes.
     Ms. Refinement -- Finely dyed cloth from Mordant with the look of a noble, but 
revealing her telling musculature atypical for both a noblewoman and one of her 
finessed fighting style.  What can I say, she loves the weights. 
     Filette Minnie -- A small, suggesting name for a tall warrior woman, one of our 
newest recruits, known for her cruelest cut.  Silver, sleeveless blouse and miniskirt
with chrome high heeled sandals riding to her thighs.  Her hair in a platinum 
ponytail, tied with chrome chord, slashes her way through her walk.
     Ophelia the Fit -- Our other new recruit, an atypical parry-riposte who, like 
Ms. Refinement, is more reliant on her formidible musculature than most, she opted for
the traditional chainmail brassiere and loin cloth and leather boots with studded 
highlights.  Skin glitter completes the classic package.
     Hands up for the Ladies, magical as always.

					Yours in good taste,

     					Madame I.M. Madame

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What's up?
     Well, here in the chair once again.  And after all this time, I finally feel I'm 
getting a handle on the dance.  It is more than power.  It is more than technique.  It 
is a combo of these and more.  I think I'm getting the more part after all this time.

                                          Swingin'

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, BONSUR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, LADIES OF QUALITY, since 
SENTINELS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see MOONSILVER win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, QUOTIDION beat FILLETTE MINNIE and FILLETTE MINNIE lost 10 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as NORTH STAR takes 
the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and 
bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their 
fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for BONSUR's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in BONSUR to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this place-- 
Snide Clemens
