                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in BONSUR this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, BARTEZ fought HIERONYMUS ZIGG and 
gained 35 points and contributed to IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS' 5-0-1.  ROSE O' THE REEF 
has lost to KRONOS GRIMHOLT, falling 16 points, while helping make BEACH BABES a 
2-3-0 turn.  Well done, BONSUR, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Perhaps WHOLLY MOLLY is not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  EPEE 
MYSTIQUE challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone AMEN!'s 
warrior.  And not without some honor, EPEE MYSTIQUE now claims the title and throne 
of Duelmaster of BONSUR.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the CHURCH LADIES stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on BONSUR, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided CHURCH LADIES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
SENTINELS.  Anyone surprised?  In a brave attempt, SISTER SINISTER from AMEN! 
challenged up 19 points to fight BLUEBURN from the SENTINELS stable.  SISTER SINISTER 
perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she was defeated by BLUEBURN and ended up 
with 48 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A farewell moment, if you please, REV. JIMMY of AMEN! has been sent 
to the Dark Arena, and was carried out on his shield.  Banners at half mast, 
warriors, SENTINELS has lost HIERONYMUS ZIGG, and you might say all of BONSUR has 
felt the loss, except maybe IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in BONSUR and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in BONSUR again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Paula -- Damn.  Is it the clothes?  Or me saying "damn" and you not?  I mean, I never
figured that kind of stuff mattered, you know?  But what if I'm wrong?  Maybe I
should try to cuss less.  Takes a lot of the fun out of things, but maybe it would
make a difference. -- Palmetta Patty

Epee Mystique -- Oh, sh-- shucks, girl!  Not the sand, I hate getting sand in my
armor. -- Rose o' the Reef

Blueburn -- My!  You really do pay attention.  I like that in a man. -- Saltilla

Chaotic Death -- I've thought and thought and thought, when I had some time to spare
from important stuff like clothes, and men, and smash, and sometimes training, and
stuff like that.  And I still don't see how one death is more chaotic than another.
I mean, any kind of death is sort of like the triumph of entropy, isn't it? -- Little
Venus

The Preacher -- You talk too much. -- Deanna Delite

Hieronymus -- But more enjoyable off the sands. -- Patty

Our congratulations to Wholly Molly. -- Jorja and the Beach Babes

Wholly Molly -- We congratulate you on your advancement, and Queen Gemra urges that
we find some Going Away gift for you.  Could you not conisder staying instead of
going?  I've been through and through the back room at the arena in search of
anything that might do as a gift for anybody, and matters there are not promising.
If you stay, you won't need a Going Away gift, however, so do consider this option.
-- Alainensiel, Highest Elf of Bonsur
P.S.  This is not a proper job for me.  Elves do not "give things away"!
