                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

Hello, connoisseurs of Bonsur.  We Ladies of Quality are proud of our Spice.  She, 
young, tall, voluptuous, with pepper hair, got her first taste of blood.  After the 
fight, when asked how the victory tasted, she said, "Needs salt."  When you are the 
spicy daughter of a condiments merchant, such fussiness is expected.  Tango in taste.

                                          -- Madam I. Madame

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
BONSUR.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We now 
have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  CINDERBONE CLAN now holds the 
crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for JOHN'S MA, 
who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing MAUNA LOA like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
MAUNA LOA lost to JOHN'S MA and drops 9 points.  Our battling duelmaster METAL BRACE 
has managed to hold the title, fending off KHALHUMS DWARF's none too subtle advances. 
Better luck next time, BONSUR.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a 
day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad LADIES OF  QUALITY?  Big bad 
LADIES OF QUALITY.  Big bad LADIES OF QUALITY.  BONSUR's afraid of the big bad LADIES 
OF QUALITY.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch THE MENTORS 
12's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from LADIES 
OF QUALITY.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, PINATUBO would be 
president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' 
category, DRAGNIGHT was mashed by CHAITEN, who let DRAGNIGHT know that killing 
members of CINDERBONE CLAN is a no-no.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you can pick your 
friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
