                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, I tried to give Cover-Your-Mouth a shot, but it is hard for a challenge to get
through when he doesn't fight.  Oh well, I guess Sandy go another shot at me.  I just
want all of the Babes to know that I have not been issuing repeated challenges.  In
fact, I have been attempting to challenge others.  Sandy has simply been lucky.
Perhaps this time it will be Betty?  Or even the rising cast of Amen!  Well, I did
challenge Cover-Your-Mouth again in case he reactivates, but let's see who gets the
match-up this time?
     The Sentinels Guild has become much younger in recent turns.  Somehow, Erasmus
and I have become the veterans of the squad.  The youngsters are eager to show their
mettle.  Another generation of Sentinels is now preparing to stand guard.

Huntsman, Duelmaster of Bonsur

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
BONSUR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS turned their 
4-1-0 turn into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, 
and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch WASTELAND II's heads swell from 
their 3-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see DOPE BOY FRESH win a fight and gain 23 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DOPE BOY FRESH beat ERASMUS and ERASMUS lost 18 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, BONSUR may be getting bland, 
as HUNTSMAN stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, 
how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  BONSUR, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  BRUTAL LEGION the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, SANDY SHORE was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to 
PIRES of IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS for challenging up by 21 to BEACH BETTY.  PIRES lost to 
get 66 points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in BONSUR to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come 
this winter-- Snide Clemens

TMM -- Well, if Will Ferrell said it, it must qualify as a Wasteland name! --
Neanderthal

Lila -- Well, you certainly don't look like an Ogre.  No, Neanderthal was right when
he said you look...well...uhm...yeah.  Hopefully you won't take the smashing to heart
and we can meet some time on the beach sand. -- Ogresmasher

Nora -- Had to get out after the flood, eh?  Bonsur is a good place to hang.
Starting together, how many times do you think we will end up facing off in our
careers? -- Obrojobo

Moses -- Since when did prophets start trying to take people apart?!  You are one
mean prophet.  And no, that does not make me want to follow you into the desert!  Go
get in a fight with Baby Jesus.  I can see the script now, "In Praise of Folly--the
foolishness of fighting prophets." -- Erasmus

Artis -- Wow!  Where I went to church, the ladies didn't do stuff like that!  I mean,
sure, there was a lot of slicing, slashing, and ripping off of faces all the time,
but it was, you know, bloodless.  Uh, well, except for the metaphorical blood, which
tended to flow very freely.  Actually, I like it better this way.  It's cleaner. --
Pensacolita

Huntsman -- Wouldn't you be up the creek if I got a strategy change!  Not that it's
likely to happen in this century. -- Sandy Shore
P.S.  Cover must've forgotten to uncover his mouth long enough to answer the roll
call here.

Slammer -- You know, I never did like that kind of thing. -- Beach Betty
P.S.  Especially from a dwarf.  I may have to get annoyed.  Hmm, I wonder if we COULD
lobby for strategy changes?  Maybe if we argued that we needed new ways to lose....

Ogresmasher -- This whole THING is just absolutely getting on my NERVES.  I think I
will run twice around the arena screaming, and then petition for a strategy change of
my own. -- Long Beach Lila, distinctly upset

Obrojobo -- Cool-sounding name, probably something voodoo, isn't it?  That's how you
WON, anyway, I'm sure of that.  Mind, I'm not BLAMING you, because if *I* had a
little voodoo in my pocket, well, there's no telling WHAT I might do. -- N'Orleans
Nora
P.S.  At least there's a better beach here than back home.

Slammer -- What!  Put it BEHIND us?  You want us to be FOLLOWED forever AFTER by the
ghost of Galveston Gal?  Better yet, YOU can be followed by the ghost of GG.  Yeah, I
like that best. -- Sandy Shore, speaking for the Beach Babes

Huntsman -- I practice teaching, you know.  There's a special course for it. -- Sandy
Shore
P.S.  We all do.

Slammer -- (with lots of echo effects)  You will never be alone!  I will be with you
always. -- Ghost of Galveston Gal
