                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see KOOCHIE GALORE win a fight and gain 12 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
KOOCHIE GALORE beat CHIOS and CHIOS lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going 
for broke or broken, our Duelmaster FATALITY challenged this turn.  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?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
BRUTAL LEGION, 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 who led the way in this mass 
act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was SENTINELS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, TERI TOWYL was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     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 Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of BONSUR.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Chios -- My name is Koochie...Koochie Galore.  I really don't like fighting.  I used
to be a pleasure slave.  They made me a fighter after some of my customers died.
Hey, they wanted it rough.  I gave it to them. -- Koochie Galore

Teri Towyl -- What house did you work for?  You are adapting much better to this
fighting thing.  Not me. -- Koochie Galore

Susie -- You must be a banshee.  That hurt. -- Moirai Fury

Palmetta Patty -- What are you doing on the sands?  You should be in a kitchen,
cooking me a meal. -- Kyu-Sho Fury
P.S.  Moirai doesn't cook for me at all.

Nora -- What I need is for you to be blinded during the fight.  I might have a chance
that way.  School was in session I guess. -- Erasmus

Lila -- Perhaps that was what Pensacolita meant when she said "Stronger than you
think?"  I don't need a drink named after me, but a little down time on the beach
wouldn't hurt.... -- Obrojobo

Crash -- At least you do have some endurance.  Tough match-up for you.  I'd suggest
checking out the Babes, they're very good at consoling. -- Neanderthal

Virulent -- I sense a style pattern for your team.  A couple of nice match-ups for
us. -- Oliander

Koockie Galore -- You actually let your manager call you that?  You should smack him
upside the head with a war hammer for trying to turn you into a sex object.  The
nerve!  Snap him on the but with your towel.  That's what it's FOR. -- Teri Towyl
P.S.  Among other things.

Kyu-Sho Fury -- Well, listen, you can't come to the party tonight.  You're too
furious!  That never helps, well, it doesn't help OUR kind of party, which is all
about feeling good.  You need to go to a NASTY party, the kind that ends in a brawl.
(virtuously)  We almost never do that at the cabana. -- Palmetta Patty

Obrojobo -- You had me spinning in circles, I couldn't tell if you were coming or
going.  This made it hard to parry your blows!  Well done, but hardly fun.  And to
think we shared such a pleasant evening at the cabana! -- Long Beach Lila

Erasmus -- Oh, my!  You are SUCH a great teacher, I'm just over-WHELMED.  Come out to
the cabana tonight so I can thank you PROPERLY. -- N'Orleans Nora

Truth -- That felt strange.  I mean, I've always known that truth isn't something you
want to go throwing around carelessly, without thought for the consequences.  But I
never thought of it as something to be, well, turned into chopped liver, either.  You
know. -- Pensacolita

Erasmus -- I know, it's so terrible being popular and getting free fights, isn't it?
And those dinner chits for the Gemrald House, what can you DO with them?  All that
fan mail, too, well, I suppose you could use it for fire-starter.... -- Nora

Slammer -- Indeed, yes!  I've thought of lots of curses and non-curses to share with
you over the years ahead. -- Ghost of Galveston Gilly

Our congratulations to Moses. -- Jorja and the Beach Babes (and Surfer Sam, too, but
he's occupied elsewhere and can't get back until next year)

Moses -- Queen Gemra was very taken with Obrojobo's suggestion of "an abstract
sculpture of a burning bush made out of sword blades" for you.  We do not precisely
follow the symbolism, but if such a worthy fellow as Obrojobo thinks it might be
appropriate, and Queen Gemra endorses it, who are we to argue?  There are certainly
plenty of broken swords around the arena after the fights to be used. -- Chancellor
Grendal
