                             Notes from the arena champ.

      Obviously, the Khalhums Dwarf could not be allowed to take the title!  It was
my plain duty to cut the tedious little fellow off at the ankles, or in his case, at
the waist.

                                     Umbrella Man

P.S.  Nick informs me that "the name of my game" is "Born to Scum."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for BONSUR.  The guys at ERRATA like really 
pulled together to get a 0-0-0 this turn, moving up by 3.  I just can't say enough 
good things about WORDS THAT END IN O.  They went 2-1-1 their first time, don't 
slouch, and they've got good oral hygiene!  MVP award for BARRIO?  WORDS THAT END IN 
O's proud of it after beating CONDEMNED PIRATE and getting 20 points.  And I was just 
getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome TOTAL DISASTER 
1.0.  Aren't WASTELAND II proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their 
warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of WASTELAND II must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what 
HATE's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from WASTELAND 
II, that's fer sher.  Can HATE's DANCING COWBOYS be more popular than me?  She was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?  Ooh!  Did DANCING COWBOYS really 
know what she was doing when she challenged LAGUNA LIL?  A 7-6-0 speaks volumes.  
(Zontoni said that.  I don't know what it means.) LAGUNA LIL won victory over DANCING 
COWBOYS, and was I surprised (right!).  But its a good thing LAGUNA LIL could stop 
laughing long enough to give DANCING COWBOYS a good pounding.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  BONSUR is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Total Disaster 1.0 -- (sigh)  Yeah.  About like that new hat I got with the curled
ostrich plume on it.  Not a good choice. -- Laguna Lil
P.S.  I don't know how it happens.  That hat looks FINE on the hatstand, but put it
on my head, and it looks like I've got a fat chicken brooding a clutch of eggs up
there.
P.P.S.  The second time I tried it, which is to say, after I got it home, I could
have SWORN I heard it cluck.

Dancing Cowboys -- A regular chorus line of twinkle-toes.  Gah. -- Salton Seahorse

Vegas, Baby! -- Your designer is sick.  Anyone who would make a golem that bites off
your finger, slaps you on the head, rolls all three eyes, and then spits out bits of
bone is certifiable. -- Sandy Shore

I might feel sorry for the Fratsfa Slave if he weren't such a wuss.  Or should I say
if he WASN'T such a wuss?  Either way, he's worthless. -- Beach Betty

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
