                           99 Bottles II Standings, Turn 13

It was a fairly slow turn last time, as our leader Postmaster once again posted (no 
pun intended) a middle-of-the-road turn, picking up 3 wins but no other bottles.  In 
fact, no one in the listings fared better than 3-2-1 this time out.  With Manager, 
Otto, and myself slowly cutting his lead each turn, the question is "Can Postmaster 
hold his lead long enough to win?"  Only time will tell.

His hopes at winning may have been damaged by the icing of another Hero.  That's 2 
deaths in two turns for Postmaster, both at the hands of our own Alfredo 
Frothingslosh.  The high score for this turn was Otto X. Frothingslosh's Undead 
Artists, who managed to gain 5 bottles.  Three teams tied for four bottle turns (Call 
to Thunder, Wish You Were Beer, and Sugar & Spice), and everyone else only managed to 
earn 3 bottles or less.

In order to clean some dead space, Arcane Power has been dropped from the listings.  
Seeing as they have been inactive for some time now and had dropped to the bottom of 
the listings, they were not exactly competing in the contest.

Guido should be back next turn.  After a long conversation that involved our 
erstwhile lackey hanging upside down from the roof of the arena, as well as an 
introduction to the concept of the 'pinata', he and Nunzio agreed that Guido won't be 
taking any more, ah, 'leaves of absence'.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail, and well met, warriors of Bonsur!  It is said, "fortune favors the brave" (as 
well as the incredibly stupid); it appears that there is some truth to this as I find 
myself honored as your newest Duelmaster.  Though it has been many years, I am not 
unfamiliar with such an honor.  I held the throne in Seam for some time, fighting off 
the advances of both Boss Orc and The Consortium.  Were they here now, I am sure they 
would laugh (though mostly curse) to see a warrior as fine as myself once again upon 
the throne.  In this instance I have Rockwell to thank, for both the victory and the 
best laugh of my long and storied career.  The last time I saw a jaw drop to the 
ground like that I was waving a bag of gold coin in Seam's red light district after 
my first successful title fight.  You've got a lot to learn, boy, before you can 
hang with the big boys.

I was under the impression that this would be my final bout in the arena, per my 
manager.  I guess that shows you what he knows (which is next to nothing).  It may be 
some time yet before they send me packing to the Isle.  I could work out a little 
more to increase my skill level, but being the cerebral warrior that I am I prefer to 
increase my skills by studying the techniques and nuances of my opponents.  It is a 
strategy which has served me well to date.  I will not be posting any challenges, 
though I reserve the right to avoid as I see fit.  My manager may tie one hand behind 
my back; I won't allow him to tie them both!

Reigning Duelmaster and 5 WT Genius,

Tenacious

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in BONSUR, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--DEAD SUPERIOR 
FORCES.  WINTER ORCHARD after a sorry 1-4-0 might want to consider abandoning the 
sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  Nothing works for a 
team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as FLAGG'S CHAMPIONS can 
attest...  FLOWER CHILDREN posted a nice gain, to come in 8th.  Everybody loves a 
winner...  Practice pays for TYZOR, who pummelled ARROWROOT, to pocket 27 points.  
Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, TYZOR was winsome, after beating ARROWROOT 
and seeing him lose 15 points.  You could cut the tension with a scimitar as MALT 
LICKER of WISH YOU WERE BEER met the Duelmaster.  Now I can't insult MALT LICKER, as 
he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay 
it on too thick) So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES, alone and unchallenged.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, FLOWER CHILDREN scurried away from DEAD 
SUPERIOR FORCES.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, TALLAHASSE TINA is the most 
challenged warrior.  As a confidence booster, WILL DUEL FOR FOOD challenged ALOHA 
ALICE, down 19 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, WILL 
DUEL FOR FOOD?  Yes, Virginia, sometimes the little guy wins, as ALOHA ALICE proved, 
beating 19 point higher WILL DUEL FOR FOOD.  Take heed BONSUR, of the unprincipled 
action of TOTURI.  By challenging POPCORN MACHINE, 33 points below him, TOTURI 
besmirches the noble art of dueling.  TOTURI will have to start challenging legless 
old maids next, as he was defeated by POPCORN MACHINE.  Good show, POPCORN MACHINE!  
Them's the breaks, COL. KLINK.  Expecting fair challenges from WISH YOU WERE BEER is 
evidently too much to ask.  BREW HA HA subdued COL. KLINK.  The whole thing leaves a 
bitter memory.  TERRI TOWEL found herself challenged by a warrior 19 below:  DANCING 
COWBOYS.  DANCING COWBOYS of HATE kept hers wits as she was defeated by TERRI TOWEL.  
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Admittedly Death waits for no one, but me thinks COMMON CUTS of SPARE-A-DIME SHIFT 
(6-2-1) is being sent off a little prematurely.  Justice was served as LEBEAU fought 
FOUNTAINHEAD in bloodfeud.  Well done, HOGAN'S HEROES!  Ask not a spymaster for 
counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in BONSUR is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
BONSUR?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- Guys n' Gals.  I've come ta a hard realization.  I don' think I'm a gonna win 
dis here contest.  So, I've in mind a bit a rousin and carousin through da final 
chapters, whilst tha antagonism is still rampant.  But first, <big grin> I gotta get 
me some fighters dat wanna fight. -- Applejack, mgr Double Ordealers

Crimson Blush -- And well you SHOULD blush, behaving like that!  Knocking me DOWN, 
even! -- Aloha Alice

<Bottle Drinker> -- I hope you choke on your next bottle, I really do. -- Lucy Luau

Cezanne -- I remember hearing about you--you're one of those "dabby do" painters, 
right?  Lots of little dots?  You need to connect the dots, dear. -- Tallahasse Tina

Sundancer -- Lots of sun-worshippers around this time of year.  Be sure not to stay 
out too long. -- Terri Towel

All -- Remember to put your arena number on your strategy sheets.  Strategies turned
in without an arena number run the risk of missing the turn. -- NAIEI

10 May 2003
To All -- Fellow managers, I humbly request your help.  My team (Ex Oblivione) was
started in Monuntial (DM 34) back in '92.  They were active for seven months.  I have
lost all early traces of them.  If any of you can help with copies of relevant
newsletters or, if you fought one of my warriors, copies of the fights, I would
greatly appreciate it.  I only have one of my original warriors left from the early
team now active in DM 60.  You can diplo me with any info here in the wonderful city
of Aradi.  Thank you in advance. -- Enigma, manager Ex Oblivione
