                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in BONSUR this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for SUGAR AND SPICE, whose 0-1-0 this turn dropped them by 4 
into 10th.  The ESPANA guild has had a 4-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the 
future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, DON 
CORLEON fought TANNED TONYA and gained 23 points and contributed to ESPANA's 4-1-1.  
WAKKO has lost to LAGUNA LIL, falling 8 points, while helping make UNDER JOLLY ROGER 
a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, MAJOR ANGER kept BEACH BABES' 
warrior, UMBRELLA MAN, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Welcome Wench?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  WASTELAND II has cause to stand 
tall, as they were BONSUR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And guess who avoided WASTELAND II stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was SEA DOGS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was SEA DOGS' 
warrior MUTINEER.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  I guess it was coming sooner or later, BEACH BABES has lost TANNED TONYA, 
and BONSUR is bound to miss her.  For a little while, at least.  A brave warrior does 
not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  
Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Turtleface -- (in horrified fascination)  Is that why the elves, um, there's no nice
way to say this, had you...altered?  Because you're so ugly they didn't want you to
breed? -- Tanned Tonya, prepared to be sympathetic up to a point, but no farther

Hailstorm -- Why do you hate me so?  You keep DOING this to my umbrellas, and they
aren't cheap to replace, you know!  Besides, the ladies get so upset when I don't
have a decent umbrella to offer them. -- Umbrella Man

Claritin Junkie -- Who cares what golems are addicted to? -- Salton Seahorse

Dikembe Mutmubo -- You're not jolly at all, in fact, you're really boring!  I'm tired
of seeing you around.  Begone! -- Paulametta

Dr Seuss -- Oh, yes, I laughed like anything. -- Laguna Lil

     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any

     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
