                                      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.  What was the name of 
that team who got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 713-1051-21 you ask?  (Sure)  BEACH 
BABES' their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for UTAKU KAMOKO?  CALL TO 
THUNDER's proud of her after beating BALDASSARE and getting 13 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  BALDASSARE's match with UTAKU KAMOKO cost him a loss of 11 points! 
Was that a tear I saw in PENSACOLITA's eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And 
wasn't LORD T. JEEBUS fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to 
his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  BEACH BABES was BONSUR's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are 
SENTINELS?  BEACH BABES, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to 
accept an invitation!  Like, is NEANDERTHAL popular, or what?  He was challenged the 
most in all of BONSUR!  He's got a 21-22-0, is that good?  SISTER SINISTER must not 
be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  She challenged SALTILLA.  8 is a big 
difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought SISTER SINISTER showed great 
skill and promise when she was beat by SALTILLA.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All BONSUR ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Everyone has problems, but why did CALL TO THUNDER send MATSU to 
the Dark Arena?  She had a 3-1-0, and I thought she looked neat on the sands...  
Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Jeebus -- Chainmail?  Since when do I wear chainmail?!  I think you only on because
of an error by the armorer!  And speed.  You might be a bit faster.  And your attack
is a bit better than mine.  And you're a good learner.  Ok, maybe it was more than
just the mail, but that didn't help any. -- Neanderthal

Venus -- Now, I don't know what your teammate was talking about with "octopus hands". 
I needed every hand I could muster against you.  You are a charming little thing and
unless a gentleman gets a firm grip, well, you're likely to slip away!  And in the
arena that could be dangerous! -- Baldassare

Wholly Molly -- Wow.  Parry.  I really need to work on my parry.  But the change in
armor seemed to work out well.  It is always good to be the challenger. -- Epee

The U Merchant -- You might want to stick to business, although we appreciate the
service you render in the arena by giving out easy wins. -- Hieronymus and Tom

Come on Jeebus, write a column!

Rev. Jimmy -- You're a bad boy, Jimmy!  A lot too familiar with a non-consenting
female, you know?  Sure, I consented to the FIGHT, not like my manager left me much
CHOICE, but the other stuff, well, it isn't like I MIND having you pat me on the
behind to "encourage" me before the fight and give me a little hug of congratulations
after and all that, but it's just the PRINCIPLE of the thing.  I mean, you're a Rev!
Should you be doing this stuff? -- Palmetta Patty

Baldassare -- Should a dwarf be taller than me?  Of course, a man should always BE a
couple of inches or so taller, if he can manage it, because it makes kissing easier,
not as much trouble with the noses, you know?  But the beard puts me off. -- Little
Venus
P.S.  Maybe if you scented it with something other than wine and tobacco?

What the heck?  I'm graduating, and I just get a Veteran Mercenary to fight?  I
suppose he did his best, or the best the Commission allows him to do, anyway, but
still.  Oh, well, a graduation is not to be blown off, right?  Party at the cabana
tonight. -- Pensacolita

Chaotic Death -- Something I would prefer to avoid, though I don't mind defeating
you.  It might even send some sort of good message to the Gods, help keep me alive,
you know? -- Rose o' the Reef
P.S.  I was trying to uphold the chaotic theme of your name by hitting all over the
place.  Either that, or I really need more attack skills.  If you could teach me
some, it would help.

Happy Singh -- With a name like that, do you expect me to BELIEVE that you weren't
laughing?  I definitely heard a chortle, and there's no argument that you were
smiling.  I didn't even know humans HAD that many teeth.  It was impressive, in its
way. -- Saltilla

Jorja says I'm "so-so" and headed for retirement, probably, so if anyone wants to
know my vital statistics (24-18-24, I'm an elf, you know, and insanely charismatic as
well--the Commission, bless their little hearts, said so), just ask. -- Pensacolita

Baldassare -- Well said!  Do come around to the cabana--down the beach from town and
about a quarter of a mile inland, amongst the vins, anyone can tell you where to find
it--for Pensacolita's party. -- Saltilla

Epee -- It *can* get nasty, but it doesn't *need* to.  We can just have fun. -- Patty

Pensacolita -- It'll be a shame to see you go, not that a lovely lady won't come
along to fill the roster, but still.  Am I invited to the party? -- Rondo the Black,
Mercenary of Long Standing, whose feet hurt and who would like to sit down sometime,
preferably with a drink

Tom the Lion and Hieronymus Zigg-- Yet again proof that I am unsuited for this
position. -- Sam #392, also known as The Userous Merchant

The Preacher -- Enough!  I repent! -- Pual Vergas, Versatile Scribe

Sister Sinister -- Ah, just the kind of woman I like!  Feel free to "overpower" me at
any time.  I am yours. -- Jax'n Curr, Condemned "Pirate"
