                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in BONSUR a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as BEACH BABES is pushed out of top team by SENTINELS, who came from 2nd 
with a 5-0-0 this turn.  And all eyes were on LORD T. JEEBUS this turn as he ascended 
to the throne of Duelmaster.  BONSUR has a new victor!  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Dripping 
Blade until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  BONSUR BABES ROCK has cause to stand tall, as they were 
BONSUR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding BONSUR BABES ROCK more than any other team we find SENTINELS.  BONSUR, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that NEANDERTHAL from SENTINELS was BONSUR's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a 
brave attempt, HAPPY SINGH from APPLICANTS challenged up 22 points to fight LITTLE 
VENUS from the BEACH BABES stable.  HAPPY SINGH perhaps got his just desserts, seeing 
as he beat LITTLE VENUS and ended up with 20 recognition points.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that BONSUR has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in BONSUR again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Rev. Jimmy -- You need to spend more time on the beach.  Forget preaching and just
live the joyful life, you know?  Surf, sand, smash, the good things. -- Palmetta
Patty

Bonsur Babe Rocks -- Just don't throw them at people!  Or leave them lying around,
we're trying to keep a clean beach here. -- Rose o' the Reef

Chaotic Death -- You know, I think I'll pass on that. -- Little Venus

Oh, cool, I'm an orcess!  That means cleavage to burn and I'll have somewhere to
stash my pocket flask of smash even in the absence of pockets. -- Saltilla

Tom -- Well, you have to look for someone with a pushy manager, I guess.  Someone who
insists that gladiators move up faster. -- Patty

Pensacolita -- Sorry, Babe...I couldn't save you from having to write this turn's
column.  Hopefully you put as much effort into it as you do your smash.  But don't
forget to make the smash! -- Lord Protector Chios

The Rockin' Babes are back!  I knew this was my kind of town!  Welcome back! --
Neanderthal

Wholly Molly -- Did you check out the point differential on that fight?  You might
want to think about continuing to avoid us. -- Epee Mystique

Candy Cane -- Nice win.   The frustrating thing is that I really think I could have
won that one.  Next time. -- Hieronymus

Sexy Salena -- Now, the sexy thing almost distracted me.  And your FE advantage was
substantial.  But this [cut off by HAL]

Rose -- Child, I do not know in which 'other areas' your talents lie.  Perhaps you
can come to my confessional to discuss the matter.... -- Rev. Jimmy

Rose -- Whatever you do, do NOT go to the good Reverend's confessional.  Trust me, I
should know. -- Molly

Epee -- You almost had me.  That slight strat tweak seems to have done the trick. --
Molly
