                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, Moses, we have done this before.  It's too bad you didn't have your
"learning hat" on, as I was demonstrating some great stuff, more than you managed to
pick up.  Busy night last night?  No...probably not.  I have always felt that you
elves just didn't know how to properly enjoy the pleasures of the flesh.  Poetry
readings?  Bah!

                                    Sandy Shore

P.S.  Good gods!  The Commission can't SERIOUSLY think I should carry a GREATSWORD
and fight low/moderate?  That is INSANE.  I won't do it!

P.P.S.  Party this weekend, ALL weekend, at the cabana.  Everyone come!

                                      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.  Later days, BEACH BABES, since 
SENTINELS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see GALVESTON GILLY win a fight and gain 19 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ERASMUS beat PENSACOLITA and PENSACOLITA lost 6 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as FATALITY takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very 
good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't 
you, BONSUR?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  WASTELAND II, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
it looks like SENTINELS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, GALVESTON GILLY was 
this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for BONSUR's 
morgue.  More variety.  Gee, BRUTAL LEGION, ain't it past due for sending CHAOS Dark 
Arena?  What took ol' '8-6-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  Titanium shields and 
bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in BONSUR to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  
Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

What just happened?!  The Beach Babes invite the squad down to the cabana to have a
little party and the entire team is too smashed to show up for the next week's
fights?!  How can the entire team oversleep!  I don't want to ban the team from the
cabana, but if they can't manage to make it back to the arena sands in time for the
fights, and in a condition to fight, then something may need to be done.  The absence
of the Sentinels from last turns duels was not intentional.  You'd think future
immortality would be a big enough prize to keep them focused.... -- Nomad, a rather
disgruntled manager

Pensacolita -- Well, I came to the barbecue.  Perhaps I should stick to ogres.  I
think I was the one that got smashed that time.  What was in that punch? --
Ogresmasher, Punchsmashed.

Nora -- A DAY at the beach!  It was only supposed to be one day!  I guess I solved
that endurance problem. -- Obrojobo

Bubba -- Keeping a low profile until you assemble skills, eh?  It might work.  Of
course, it sounds, well, a little BORING, but....  Good luck with it, anyway. --
Galveston Gilly

Oooh, a Vicious Pirate!  I was TERRIFIED! -- Long Beach Lila
P.S.  Okay, I was NOT terrified, but I was smart enough to wait until the fight was
over to laugh.
P.P.S.  Of course, that still leaves whatever he might do after gets out of the
Infirmary, but it says here that he woke up disoriented, so I'm going to claim that
it was somebody else entirely who beat him up.

I feel a little badly about all those Ambitious Guards.  They come out with such
hopes, or I suppose they have hopes, and then...whammo! -- N'Orleans Nora
P.S.  Only a LITTLE badly, though, because nobody FORCES them to come out onto the
sands.

Dope Boy Fresh -- What kind of name is that?  And dope--for a GLADIATOR?  I hope the
Commission catches you and hangs your ass from the top of the arena.  (And the rest
of you from other locations.) -- Pensacolita
P.S.  But you're certainly FRESH.  It was clearly my DUTY to smack you around.

Ed. -- I've turned over management of the Beach Babes to Jorja.  Too much work, and I
never could understand women anyway.  She'll probably do better, but certainly no
worse.  I'm going to take a page from Debby Tonte's book and head south for a sunny
seashore with palms, hula girls (not on Debby's list, but they BELONG there, you
know), and drinks with umbrellas in them. -- Nick

     What about your other teams? -- The Saint, keeper of lists

Ogresmasher -- This is true.  We do a rather good Cranberry Smash out at the cabana.
Come test it with us this weekend.  Tasty and rather potent, PLUS, it has vitamins.
-- Pensacolita

Obrojobo -- Mmmm, coming along nicely.... -- N'Orleans Nora

Slammer -- That you should win, fine, I can go with that.  You've got your own needs,
no doubt.  But there was no need for viciousness. -- Rondo the Black, Mercenary of
Long Standing (with tired feet)

Long Beach Lila -- Eh?  Do I know you?  What's this "Vicious Pirate" business about,
anyway?  What building fell on me?  Ouch? -- Blackshell, Confused Freebooter of the
Trier

N'Orleans Nora -- Thank you for your assistance in the ongoing efforts to discipline
the City Guard forces. -- Captain Ansaal Treans, Commander of the City Guard

Susie -- Like that was hard?  They make me fight with one hand tied behind my back,
after all. -- Elvisnith, late of Mordant

Debbie -- I never TOUCHED your payroll, dammit!  But I WILL. -- Pual Vergas,
Versatile Scribe, just revived and distinctly irascible

Sandy Shore -- Hmm.  It has not been our practice of late years to hand over lands to
departing gladiators, even after we started taking back the lands of gladiators who
never returned (absentee landlords are bad for the economy and the ecology both).
However, Queen Gemra insists that we "do something nice" for you because you're "so
much fun to party with."  Not a helpful instruction, since she didn't have any idea
what kind of "something" we should do!  Perhaps if we simply offered to finance a
VERY MINOR addition to the Beach Babes' cabana? -- Chancellor Grendal
