                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hey, what's going on?  I've been enjoying my retirement from arena play.  It turns
out some other manager sent my identification number to the commission instead of his
own warrior's number, so away I went.  Bah.

I need to get back to that hot craps table, pronto.

Vegas, Baby!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but BEACH BABES will tell you 670-1000-20 is nothing to laugh at...  
Practice pays for TAI-PAN, who pummelled GOOD GODFREY, to pocket 23 points.  GOOD 
GODFREY certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to TAI-PAN and 
losing 16 points in the process!  Can you believe it?  VEGAS, BABY! apparently has 
better things to do as BONSUR's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a 
greater victory?  N'ORLEANS NORA has taken hers place as the top, as BONSUR's new 
Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in BONSUR avoid WASTELAND II.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of SENTINELS, so did that sorry team shy from 
WASTELAND II If challenges were horses, SEXY SALENA ROCKS could open up a fast food 
joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in BONSUR is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Hey!  I was supposed to fight!  I even saw Nomad submit the paperwork!  How could I
miss out on my last fight here?  Thank goodness Nora had some good vin to take the
edge off of the irritation.  Thanks for the party--the many parties, actually--I
await you at the Isle! -- Lord Protector Obrojobo

Paula -- Didn't expect that did you?  What, was Neanderthal not in your range? --
Chios

Ladies of the Church -- I really do appreciate all of the easy wins, but your
inexperience does make it hard to learn anything.  But I guess I'd rather have the
wins anyway.  Challenge away! -- Your favorite local cave-dweller, Neanderthal

Lila -- Wow.  Given the experience edge, I was a bit surprised by that outcome.  At
least I knew I could count on a more experienced lady to teach me something. --
Oliander

Vegas -- Out of the blue and I almost won.  I'm willing to try that again sometime.
-- Erasmus

Betterthanever -- I might debate that point, in fact, I *would* debate that point, if
I had the time.  But I'm in charge of the banana leaves for the barbecue, and this is
not a small responsibility.  Do you know how HARD it is to find banana leaves in
Bonsur?  I don't think the darned things grow within a thousand miles of here, and
probably farther.  If I hadn't found a guy with a hothouse who grows a couple of
banana plants, we'd've had to make do with wrapping the darned pig in SPINACH leaves!
Shocking, that would have been. -- Teri Towyl

Geri -- Didn't I just get a letter from you about--?  Ah, right, a different Geri.

Since it wasn't you making those unrealistic suggestions, you get a pass and are
permitted to survive and go on your way.  Heck, I'll even bring a covered dish to
your next social. -- Palemtta Patty

The Khalhums Dwarf?  All those active teams on the front of the newsletter and I have
to fight a standby?  I can see that I am *really* going to miss Obrojobo.  Which I
knew, but I was thinking of other aspects of his presence that I'd miss.  Darn. --
N'Orleans Nora

The Venomous Gigolo is wuss.  A pushover. -- Pensacolita
P.S.  And bad-tempered, too.

Oliander -- Listen, kid, you don't want to go shooting up the ranks so fast,
especially not while the arena's full.  Save it for a while, most of these people
will clear out again after the tourney. -- Long Beach Lila

Erasmus -- Well, I do use cranberries in the smash.  That would have to be counted as
"healthful," wouldn't it? -- Pensacolita
