                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail BONSUR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, BIG BAD DADDY JR fought BALDASSARE and gained 22 points and 
contributed to WESTNMAFIA's 2-1-0.  BALDASSARE has lost to BIG BAD DADDY JR, falling 
19 points, while helping make SENTINELS a 4-1-0 turn.  We should ask WHOLLY MOLLY 
about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, 
she's now the one to ask.  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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the WESTNMAFIA 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on BONSUR, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided WESTNMAFIA stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was CHURCH 
LADIES.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, BONSUR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in BONSUR, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in BONSUR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Candy Cane -- I had to try.  I must admit I always thought candy would be sweeter.
You have one hell of an after taste. -- Baldassare

Patty -- I'll let the match-makers decide if we meet again, but so far I have found
our meetings on and off the sands quite enjoyable. -- Hieronymus

Kung-Fu Master -- Yah gotta like anyone who is willing to kick a scimitar.  It makes
the whole "fight" concept a lot easier. -- Epee

Rose -- No, they are not knitting needles.  An epee has quite a keen blade on it.
There are 17 people so far who can attest to that.  It has quite a bit of mystery to
it. -- Epee Mystique

Chaotic Death -- Keep trying.  It is good to have your manager here. -- Blueburn

Little Venus -- Indeed there is no reason to be conceited about your record.  Your
other charms, however, are quite worthy of a complement.  Quite a little goddess you
are, and time is on our side. -- Kronos

Hieronymus Zigg -- I don't know what it was with Candy Cane, but *I* don't see any
falling off of your ability on the sands.  Or elsewhere, your ability to put away a
mug of smash is just amazing.  Anyway, I guess this should count as a "good fight,"
shouldn't it?  There were parts that weren't bad, but I prefer, well, a more intimate
setting, and just the weapons nature gave us, you know? -- Palmetta Patty

Big Bad Daddy Jr -- Oh, for pete's sake!  It's the height thing, the "napoleon
complex," isn't it?  Cheese Morris, guy, get over it.  Life can be just fine for a
short guy.  Embrace your shortness and make the most of it. -- Rose o' the Reef

Ambitious Guard?  Is this the best Bonsur can come up with?  Captain Ansaal Treans,
Commander of the City Guard, you need to get with the recruiting and the training.
We here in the arena will help you bring up a new generation of guards, of course,
but you have to take the first steps.  Which are, as indicated above, recruiting and
basic training.  Get busy, man, we could be invaded any day now! -- Saltilla

Kronos Grimholt -- Far be it from me to say it often, but I think maybe Saltilla has
something with her "we may be invaded any day now."  Okay, maybe not, too, but would
YOU care to take that chance?  What do you say we help out--recruiting, maybe,
patrolling the borders, there must be something we can do.  After all, we live here,
too. -- Little Venus

Venus -- So, you're saying that Hieronymus and I should be doing something "useful"
instead of checking for spiders in the shadows behind the cabana?  I don't know if
I'm ready for that kind of thing.  What does one WEAR to patrol the borders? -- Patty

What? -- Or when, as the case might be. -- Deanna Delite

Chaotic Death -- I pity you a manager who is so stringent. -- Deanna Delite

Chaotic Death -- Besides, you aren't a babe, and I bet you don't tan well. --
Saltilla

Baldassare -- If not, well, I'll help bring you back up to speed afterward. -- Patty
