                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Candy Cane fights.  Candy Cane sits out.  Candy Cane fights.  Candy Cane sits
out.  You might think that this means we won't see the Candy again until after the
winter tournament, but who knows?  Maybe next turn, Candy Cane fights.
     But for whatever reason, here I sit.  No matter the size of the arena, it is
still an honor to be here.  Bonsur remains one of the greatest cities in Alastari.
We just need to convince a few more of the managers out there of that fact.  Perhaps
if the Babes sent a nice holiday package of smash to every manager?  (Don't forget
those already here!)  You know, let the world know what we have to offer.
     As for the fights, that was hardly the first time I faced Venus.  Quite the
pretty little gladiator she is and a worthy opponent to boot.  Who do I get this next
turn?  Candy Cane?  Or not Candy Cane?

Blueburn, Duelmaster of Bonsur

                                      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...  Like, SENTINELS had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by CHURCH LADIES!  Way to go CHURCH 
LADIES!  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 1 after going 4-1-0.  
Keep it up, BEACH BABES!  MVP award for PELARGIR?  SENTINELS' proud of him after 
beating SARAH SUNDANCE and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SARAH 
SUNDANCE's match with PELARGIR cost her a loss of 3 points!  And I was just getting 
used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome PALMETTA PATTY.  Aren't 
BEACH BABES proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said BONSUR's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Dripping Blade?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  CHURCH LADIES was the most avoided team.  Is a 97-97-13 record 
really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why SENTINELS' been avoiding 
CHURCH LADIES so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is SARAH 
SUNDANCE popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of BONSUR!  She's got 
a 1-3-0, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All BONSUR ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What a bummer!  HAYMAKER got wasted by SUZIE!  But with a 4-5-0, 
I guess SENTINELS aren't too bummed.  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Suzie -- That wasn't a very nice challenge.  No indeed.  Didn't like it one bit. --
Haymaker

Sarah -- I still have work to do, but I'm beginning to figure out a few things,
anyway.  Thanks for the dance. -- Blago

Queenie -- I get the feeling we will probably do that more than once.  And I don't
think you will win them all. -- Cajetan

Geri -- That was not how things were supposed to begin.  But there will be other
opportunities. -- Pelargir

The arena may be small, but an arena with no Total Parries can't be entirely bad.

M. Chardinee?  That's all I get?  Darn. -- Saltilla

Blueburn -- I can't grudge you that win after the enjoyment you've brought me at the
cabana. -- Little Venus

No, no, and no.  I will not learn Kung-Fu. -- Palmetta Patty

Blago the Axe -- Careful!  I've already died once, and that was enough.  More than
enough, actually. -- Sarah Sundance

Cajetan -- You're just a pussycat, aren't you? -- Queenie
