      Pensacolita glanced over her shoulder at the door to the cabana, then leaned
closer to her teammate, Nora.  "Did Sam go off with that troll?"
      "Yep, the troll and the fox."
      "He's going to get into trouble, isn't he?"
      "Bound to.  But look on the bright side, he isn't making us go with him!"  Nora
moved to the next cabinet and bent over to check the bottom shelf.  "Ah!  I knew we
had some of the aged vin somewhere--"  She pulled out two dusty bottles.
      "Don't you CARE?"
      "About the vin, yes, I want nothing but the best we've got for Obrojobo.  About
Sam, no, why should I?  This won't be the first time he's gone off like this.  And he
isn't the one who signs our paychecks, either, so that's okay."  An outraged
squealing came from behind the cabana.  Nora smiled.  "The pig for the barbecue must
have arrived."

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  BONSUR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Cut this out and put 
it in your scrapbooks, BONSUR BABES ROCK!  'Cause they got 4-1-1 and moved up to 2nd! 
MVP award for TIRPITZ?  BATHTUB ARMADA's proud of him after beating WHOLLY MOLLY and 
getting 16 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  WHOLLY MOLLY got smashed by 
TIRPITZ, and lost 18 points!  What a putz!  BARTEZ fights so hard to be Duelmaster, 
then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was 
just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome VEGAS, 
BABY!.  Aren't WASTELAND II proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real 
snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  WASTELAND II was BONSUR's most avoided team.  Is there some award 
for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why SENTINELS' been avoiding WASTELAND II 
so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is NEANDERTHAL popular, or 
what?  He was challenged the most in all of BONSUR!  He's got a 13-10-0, is that 
good?   
     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.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Bartez -- I do hate it when warriors pop in unexpectedly.  Congratulations on the
throne.  I hope you will break with tradition and honor us with a column. -- Obrojobo

Nora -- Too much smash?  No, your observations were correct; I was fine.  But I hate
drinking behind the cabana by myself.  I don't have much time left here in Bonsur;
care to have a little going away party? -- Obrojobo

Lila -- Now the strat changed worked this time.  Nice fight.  See you at the Cabana!
-- Erasmus

Pensacolita -- Blueberries?  Yeah, I think blueberries would be good.  The color
never mattered to me very much.  Now, if the smash were actually healthful in
addition to its other medicinal qualities...now that would be a win all around! --
Erasmus

Church Ladies -- Well, it wasn't intentional, but you ladies need to realize that the

arena isn't the same as a church social.  I think you do know that, but still, these
things happen.  Should vengeance be a part of the creed at your place of worship, I
await your bloodfeud. -- Oliander

Terri -- Wow.  That was the best I've looked since I decided to give this whole
dueling thing a try.  Oliander had told some very impressive stories about your
skills.... -- Chios

Susie -- Hah!  Not only did I defeat another Church Lady challenge, but this time I
even got a skill out of it! -- Your favorite local cave-dweller, Neanderthal

Pires -- That's weird.  I thought everybody as short as you ended up listed as a
dwarf--or a golem--hairy face or not.  Although being a Rirorni isn't a heck of a lot
better, if you ask me.  Sneaky, all you Rirorni. -- Pensacolita

Paula -- That wasn't very ladylike of you!  But if you'll bring that scalloped potato
thing you do so well to the barbecue, I'll forgive even the low blows. -- Palmetta
Patty
P.S.  Use extra cheese.

Erasmus -- Sorry, I just couldn't focus on the fight.  Too busy thinking about the
pies I've been assigned to make for the party.  Lemon, apple, cherry, they're all
good, but the seem so ordinary.  Surely the situation calls for something with more
pizzazz.  Hmm.  Maybe I'll have to send an emergency note up to Caleam, to the Golden
Canyon.  They're the ones who really have a line on cooking. -- Long Beach Lila

Khalhums Dwarf?  (indignantly)  No way will I yield a victory to the Khalhums Dwarf!
All my yielding is for Obrojobo. -- N'Orleans Nora

Chios -- Heck, I didn't expect you to be a woman.  Welcome, Sword-sister!  Come on
out to the cabana for the party.  Come early, and we can do girl-talk first. -- Teri
Towyl

Erasmus -- This is true.  Smash makes everything look better.  It's almost time for
strawberries from the hothouse, I wonder how they will taste in the smash? --
Pensacolita

Oliander -- And there's more to learn where that came from, too. -- Palmetta Patty

Our heartfelt congratulations to Obrojobo. -- All the Beach Babes
