                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, after many long turns of frustration I finally pulled one out against Nora.
And nice timing it was, as the win puts me on the throne.  Perhaps she should not
have offered to assist me in my practice?  The smash it seems, can be quite
fortifying.

As for holding onto the top-seat, that is likely to require another match-up against
a Babe.  They all have their own special talents.  I look forward to both the bout
and the after-fight cabana-bash.

Erasmus, Duelmaster of Bonsur

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly BONSUR games.  Former top team BONSUR BABES ROCK was 
unseated this week as SENTINELS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-0 record for the round.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which AMEN! 
managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  
BETTERTHANEVER caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested PALMETTA PATTY and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, BETTERTHANEVER put down PALMETTA PATTY, causing her to lose 17 
points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has ERASMUS in the past laid 
claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in BONSUR seem to feel that 
they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city BONSUR.  BONSUR, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is WASTELAND II, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  If 
you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of 
SENTINELS last week.  Busy avoiding WASTELAND II?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  BONSUR BABE ROCKS take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in BONSUR.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it 
seems that OLIANDER posted a challenge against the more highly recognized N'ORLEANS 
NORA.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand OLIANDER won victory over N'ORLEANS 
NORA.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My condolences to BONSUR BABES ROCK for 
their loss of a very promising warrior, HEFTY HANNAH BABE.  HEFTY HANNAH BABE went to 
doom before the arms of FRATSFA SLAVE, a warrior of BONSUR.  Fate is a fickle 
mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the 
victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in BONSUR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Pensacolita -- Well, that was no good.  No good at all.  I think I may need to crawl
back into my cave.  Well, maybe after a bit of smash. -- Neanderthal

Lila -- I don't think I'm ready to play with the veterans yet.  But those skills you
provided me with should help a lot. -- A fellow battle-babe, Chios

Geri -- Now, that is more like how this whole dueling thing is supposed to work. --
Epee

Vegas -- My apologies if my strat got you stuck into the arena.  I think Erasmus was
even more bummed by the result than you were! -- Obrojobo

Chios -- A bold attempt, I hope not as a result of too much to drink and too little
to eat at the cabana last night!  But no, it couldn't be the vin, not with you
learning five skills in fifty seconds.  Excellent work there. -- Long Beach Lila
P.S.  We take an almost proprietary interest in your team, you know.  Or maybe
auntvuncular.

Erasmus -- Ah, VERY good!  It must be the new secret ingredient in the smash.  This
is great.  Go, man, go, and other cheers to that effect. -- N'Orleans Nora

Neanderthal -- I think your problem is that you're shy.  I know you can do better,
I've seen you do better in practices behind the cabana, but when you get out in the
arena in front of, well, almost everybody that counts, you have an attack of shyness.
Modesty, too, probably.  But you CAN do better. -- Pensacolita

Bonsur Bunny Babe -- The rabbit ears on your helmet look, well, odd.  And when you
hold your shield up to hide them, it leaves a lot of the rest of you exposed.  Bad
tactic.  Why not just paint a bunny on your shield, instead? -- Palmetta Patty

Sexy Salena Rocks -- You're not supposed to THROW the rocks.  Oh, well, I can't say
I'm surprised, it seems to be impossible to keep the cabana in towels, towls, or
towyls.  They just don't last.  Darned if I know why. -- Surfer Sam for the Beach
Babes

Oliander -- Well, I *know*, but try not to shoot up so fast that someone shoots you
down! -- Pensacolita

Flagg!  Get out here.  How can we congratulate your graduating Digger Wasp if neither
you, it, nor the team in question is even HERE? -- Jorja

     A good question!
