Xochithlan, the royal palace:

     Tirisha Dulake leaned closer to her cousin, King Feyen, and pouted.  "You can't
be so hard hearted, Pootles," she cooed.  "It isn't like I'm asking a LOT from
you...."
     Feyen was too dark skinned to blush noticeably, but he felt himself getting
rather warm under the collar.  "Don't call me that!" he hissed.  [It is a gift in the
royal family of Xochithlan to be able to hiss words which contain no esses.]  "You're
the only one who remembers that Mother used to call me that!  But what if someone
overhears?"  He peered around nervously.  Eavesdropping was the national pastime in
Xochithlan, but he thought his throne room was reasonably secure.  Still, if anyone
heard her say that name....  He shuddered.
     "If you'll give me the soldiers, dearest cousin, I'll be so busy and so far
away, I'm sure I'll forget."
     "But Tirisha, I can't!  If I sent Xochithlani Royal Guardsmen into Mordanti
territory, it could start a war, or at LEAST," he shuddered again, "Samir would send
that battlemage of his to 'make an official protest' and the man has NO sense of
style at all.  His hair, his beard!"  King Feyen stroked his own perfect little
mustache.  "It's impossible, Tirisha, you must see that!"
     "No, it is NOT impossible."  Her coo was getting ragged around the edges,
letting the iron determination show through.  She took a deep breath, noting that,
as with every other man who saw her do that, she had riveted Feyen's attention; after
all, they were only second cousins on one side.  "You don't need to send the whole
Royal Guard.  I'm sure I won't need a thousand men in Rodeki.  It's such a LITTLE
place.  A hundred will be enough to protect me, DEAR Feyen."  She blew in his ear.
     Feyen took his own deep breath and managed not to melt on the spot.  "Well...a
hundred men, then, but no more!  And not in Royal Xochithlani uniform, either!"
     "Of course not, coz."  She patted his arm as she straightened up.  "I wouldn't
want anyone to get the idea they were on YOUR business."  She slid out of reach just
a little ahead of King Feyen's reaching hands.  "You won't have any trouble at all
over this, dear coz."
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     Arenamaster Xoron, a practitioner of the Ancient Elvish Martial Art of Seelie-
Khuei, was deeply resistant to feminine wiles.  He was, however, extremely interested
in cash.  Tirisha had plenty of cash.
     "I guess I could find you a few gladiators to serve as a personal bodyguard," he
muttered, mentally fingering the coins Tirisha had placed on the table between them.
"I couldn't vouch for their reliability, though."
     "I will attend to that," Tirisha said briskly.  "Twenty ounces of gold for every
gladiator you can find me.  Payable when they sign up."

Warriors and managers are invited to accompany Tirisha Dulake to Rodeki, or wherever
she may end up going.  A note in the personals addressed to Scribe, or an email to
Livia@reality.com will do it.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

I, Ishinomori, winner of 2 TV's and the best tournament warrior Shocking Toad has
ever had, reign supreme upon the throne of Bonsur.  Shocking Toad started here 19
years ago and I am his first Duelmaster in Bonsur.  It shows how hard this arena is
and how poorly he's done here.  Well, with myself, Satoshi Kuno, and Jakuchu Ito
we've increased our master's record from a lowly 38% W/L to 44%.  Still not anything
to write home about but it is a nice change of events for our wondrous master.

Well, I now head off to Home Guard and Satoshi Kuno will join me right away.  Nazgul
will meet a beastie and surely die.  Jackuchu Ito will hang around until the next
tournament so he can arrive in that wondrous state of immortality.  As this all
transpires at once please have patience with Ninjas as our stable will once again
rebuild.  It is doubtful my decedents will do as well for the Master as the current
band of brethren; however, Master Shocking Toad will do his best to get this stable
to a 50% W/L record.

All Hail Shocking Toad.  All Hail Bonsur.

Ishinomori

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon BONSUR, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in BONSUR, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--WASTELAND II.  
ERRATA posted a nice gain, to come in 5th.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice 
pays for RED NO. 40, who pummelled BUBBA, to pocket 19 points.  ADAM certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to RAISON D'ETRE and losing 8 points in 
the process!  Duelmaster ISHINOMORI from NINJAS is going for the gold, as she TV 
challenged BEACH BABES' ALOHA ALICE.  Ooh, the excitement!  Those who hoped for a new 
Duelmaster were disappointed by ALOHA ALICE, of BEACH BABES, who despite a 25-26-0 
couldn't overcome BONSUR's Number 1.  Word has it one team in BONSUR is using 
psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in BONSUR avoid FLAGG'S CHAMPIONS.  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of WASTELAND II, so did that sorry team shy from FLAGG'S 
CHAMPIONS If challenges were horses, BUBBA could open up a fast food joint!  Word has 
it LIRIEL suffered a romantic setback.  Note how she challenged GINGER, 31 points 
hers senior.  Soopreyes, soopreyes!  LIRIEL emerges from the fray 1 points the 
richer.  Good show, LIRIEL!  Mismatched by 8 points, PTI was bested by SATOSHI KUNO.  
Is this really worth noting?  I thought SATOSHI KUNO showed great skill and promise 
when he overcame PTI.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Citizens of BONSUR, 
be sure to settle your debts with ¤ of DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES.  It's relocating to 
the Dark Arena and has other things on its mind!  Q:  What's a record like 10-13-2 
get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  This week's winner:  NAZGUL of NINJAS!  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for BONSUR?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Raison d'Etre -- "Taking the lead in the battle" is not enough, tall and handsome.
You have to keep it.  (bats eyes)  But you were such a pussycat, I had no trouble
talking you out of it. -- Aloha Alice

Pti -- Darn.  Can I claim an input error because my tactic "withhold skills" wasn't
used? -- Tallahasse Tina

Tasty Hangnail -- I know you're just, like, totally upset about losing, but I had no,
you know, choice.  I mean, hangnails are nasty, ugly things.  So I couldn't let you
win.  It would be two uglifying. -- Terri Towel

Thyme -- You probably need Parsley, Sage, and Rosemary to do the job right. -- Sweet
Tommy
P.S.  Although I'm partial to Basil, myself.

Rogue -- Well, I DO!  I really hurt, because you were so MEAN to me. -- Sandbar Sally

Kalkin -- Some days, cleaning out a stable can be a true Labor of Hercules.  I hope
you don't have to divert a river through it. -- Surfer Sam

Shocking Toad -- So we meet again! -- Kalkin

Mannequin -- Hopefully, we'll meet again...this turn! -- Kalkin

Let it be known far and wide, that the Warrior TUM 18-7380, the Champions Runner-Up
for the recent Tournament, is managed by none other than Shocking Toad.  I named this
fabulous warrior after my friend and mentor, TUM, a.k.a. Don!  Sorry TUM didn't get
me my first TC; however, a runner-up with all those sandbaggers is pretty impressive,
if I do say so myself. -- Shocking Toad, The Manager

13 November 2003
All -- This is to announce that I am no longer a member of the Vendetta Cartel
Alliance.  I have enjoyed my time there, and I've made some great friends.  Their
company will be missed, but they will endure.  I wish them well. -- Apex

Greetings!  I would like to invite everyone to Jhans (DM 36) for the first annual kLk
St. Valentine's Day Massacre (kill contest).  We will start the contest off with the
ceremonial burning of the Andorian flag on turn 450.  (Six turns away.  Roughly mid-
February.)  The contest will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461, 3 separate victors will
be announced.  Team with the most kills, warrior with the most kills, and alliance
with the most kills.  Prizes will be awarded to the manager of the team with the most
kills and to the manager of the warrior with the most kills.  The prizes will
probably be team roll-ups.  The number of roll-ups has yet to be determined.  The
contest is sponsored by Jhans' newest, (but by the time the contest starts) largest
alliance, the kLk (pronounced "klick"). -- Polarius, mgr. of Blitzkrieg DM 36
