                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in BONSUR!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, AMEN!, but SENTINELS 
was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for CANDY CANE?  CHURCH LADIES' proud of 
her after beating THE PREACHER and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  THE PREACHER got smashed by CANDY CANE, and lost 11 points!  And I was just 
getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome CANDY CANE.  
Aren't CHURCH LADIES proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors 
get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  SENTINELS was BONSUR's most avoided team.  Is there 
some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are AMEN!?  SENTINELS, an easy 
team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is 
CANDY CANE popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of BONSUR!  She's 
got a 10-6-1, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All BONSUR ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear 
from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  BONSUR is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Ghost of Rose and the rest of the Babes -- I can't believe that happened.  She wasn't

supposed to die!  And I wasn't supposed to get so busy that I failed to even note her
passing!  It got so crazy around here that Epee even failed to write a column!  Many
a glass of smash has and will be raised in her honor! -- Blueburn

Patty -- See, you can survive such a fight!  Cheers! -- Blueburn

Yeah, about that missed column, sorry about that.  I gave the others some ideas for
when they get a chance to write one.  For now I am off to the Isle, Yankee Rose is
now no longer the only female in Nomad's AD guildhouse. -- Lord Protector, Epee
Mystique  (And for the last time, they are NOT knitting needles!  And my favorite
turned out to be a longspear--trying knitting with one of those!)

     Maybe if you were a Shew, or even better a large troll....

Chancellor Grendall -- A luau at the Cabana is always a fun thing.  Perhaps while we
are there we can discuss those lands I shall be receiving?  "Granted title and land,"
that is what the letter said... -- Lord Protector, Epee Mystique

Preacher -- You seem to be the fire and brimstone type of guy.  Never really liked
those types. -- Kronos

Saltilla -- Now that was a nice little fight.  A little back and forth, tit for tat,
repartee.  It makes the time with a beautiful lady go by so quickly. -- Baldassare

Mary Ann -- Weren't you stuck on an island with Ginger, Gilligan, and some other
folks once?  Don't like boats now and thought you'd stick to the sand? -- Blago

Position Is Empty?  Egad and forsooth!  It seems to be the fault of these wretched
Footballers, going off and abandoning their responsibilities.  No smash for them! --
the Beach Babes

The Preacher's Wife -- What I don't understand is how you came to marry someone so
much shorter than you are.  But whatever the reason that might be, you're developing
well in the arena and I predict that he won't dare to speak harshly to you. -- Deanna
Delite

Blueburn -- You can't have been giving that match your whole attention, or you would
have gotten one more point of recognition (I don't see why anyone had trouble
recognizing you, but what do I know?) and have all sorts of honors. -- Palmetta Patty
P.S.  You probably need more smash.  Maybe we should do something special with the
next batch.

Baldassare -- That was well done. -- Saltilla
P.S.  I'm just not feeling creative in the word department today.  Sorry.

Sister Sinister -- It's all a plot, isn't it? -- Little Venus
