                             Notes from the arena champ.

Oy... Well I don't know what to say... It's an honor to assume the throne here once
again!  Ma Jeebus once told me:  "It's a nary how ye play the game, it's whether ye
win or lose!"  So with that, I'll grant me thanks to all ye great teachers who made
me what I am:  Ma and Pa of course, all of the gream aim-lows who came before me, the
old guys Slammer and Moses, our fine somewhat anonymous leader, and the many great
teachers of this fine arena.  I may be a wee lad, but the Jeebus clan is stout of
heart!  Pa Jeebus once told me:  "You're a puny fish in a big pond... so eat the big
fish and they'll respect ye!"

As far tokens, I suppose I'll leave behind me tin can of a helm.  I think it's caused
me more trouble than it's worth!

Your Duelmaster,

Lord Tund'rin Jeebus

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
BONSUR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, AMEN!, since SENTINELS 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see LITTLE VENUS win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, PAULA beat ROSE O' THE REEF and ROSE O' THE REEF lost 6 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, LORD T. 
JEEBUS has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as CANDY CANE takes the Title and last week's bar 
tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why 
am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, BONSUR?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  BONSUR, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  CHURCH LADIES the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was SENTINELS.  Ha ha ha ha!  DUNE 
DAISY was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of BONSUR.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Dear Venus -- When a lovely lady says "Baldy" with the right tone of affection (And
we all know it can not be said of me seriously!) then I am pleased.  When a man
unworthy of the term "gentleman" attempts to use the expression, they receive an
altogether different reaction.  It is all in how you say it, and who says it.  You,
for instance, will always sound beautiful when calling my name. -- Baldy

Candy Cane -- Yeah, it was a bit unfair, but as I said in the column, I wanted the
.500 record.  And Tom deserved some respect.  Others may repeat if they want the
matchup, but justice has been served. -- Lord Protector, Neanderthal

Babes -- Now that was a party.  Nothing like going out with a bang!  I shall have to
return and enjoy your hospitality again! -- Lord Protector, Neanderthal

Vicious Pirates, Captured Pirates, the local harbor patrol must have been busy
lately! -- Epee and Zigg

     Just Unsung Heroes, that's us. -- the Bonsur Harbor Patrol

Mary Ann -- That was not how I planned to begin my career.  I have no time for such
nonsense. -- Kronos

Wholly Molly -- Well... that's probably good.  I wouldn't want you to be half someone
else.  I guess. -- Palmetta Patty
P.S.  You really suck up the skills.

Rev. Jimmy -- Maybe you should try doing the sermon thing out on the beach.  Get more
people and all. -- Rose o' the Reef

The Preacher -- You guys are just overrunning this town, and we didn't used to be
that kind of town at all.  What gives? -- Saltilla

Chaotic Death -- Oh, good, someone with a violent, secular name!  Totally acceptable,
especially since you lost.  I like that in an opponent. -- Little Venus

Sister Sinister -- Have you tried standing on your head?  That might help.  Or maybe
getting totally mokus on smash. -- Dune Daisy

Neanderthal -- It's true that immortality and smash are a good match, but don't
forget that you have to have a babe to go with it and make the package complete. --
Pensacolita
P.S.  I'm set up to make smash on the Isle, and I'm sure we could find a good cave in
the vicinity.

Ghost of Tom the Lion -- Maybe you can get an Early Reincarnation? -- Rose

Baldassare -- Well, Pensacolita does beat me out on Charisma, but I'm more Attractive
than she is, and Charisma isn't everything. -- Venus
P.S.  I think discussions at the cabana would be great, but forget the dueling, there
are more interesting topics.  Tell me about yourself, eh?  What do you like to do,
where do you come from, all that stuff.  They tell me I'm a good listener.

I hope someone shakes the toner cartridge before the next newsletter prints.  This is
difficult to read. -- Jorja

Patty -- Well now, I almost regret the comment about you stealing Daddy's weapon and
armor, since you were so nice as to teach me 5 skills.  Keep teaching like that and
you can wear anyone's armor you like! -- Molly

     Is this a generous offer, or what?

Daisy -- Sorry... I get a little overzealous sometimes.  Hope you aren't having
trouble sitting down. -- Sister Sinister
