                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Kung-Fu Master is an elf, and you can't expect me to go easy on him.  As if!
Those elves are too sneaky as it is, they shouldn't be allowed to study Kung-Fu, too.

                                      Saltilla

                                      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, SENTINELS, since BEACH 
BABES took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see GATEWAY win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, SARAH SUNDANCE beat ETUGEN KHAN and ETUGEN KHAN lost 13 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS GIGOLO, and 
SALTILLA has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With SALTILLA clearing the throne, 
BEACH BABES of LITTLE VENUS takes a proud seat as BONSUR's new Duelmaster, by virtue 
of recognition points.  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.  What's 
the big D?  CHURCH LADIES was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was SENTINELS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully 
impressed, L'DY DEATHSTRIKE was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego 
swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for BONSUR's 
morgue.  More variety.  WORDS THAT END IN O has cause to pause today, as BARRIO was 
sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, I'll wager.  
A big yahoo goes out to CAJETAN this turn, for revenging SENTINELS' bloodfeud against 
CHURCH LADIES' warrior SUZIE.  Heh, heh, heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it 
only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this 
one.   
     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

Welcome back to Bonsur, Reavers!  It is always good to see a veteran team return.
Hopefully this can be a long term stay and not just some tourney timing.  But either
way, your presence here is welcome. -- Nomad and the Sentinels

     This is true.

What!  Palmetta Patty si graduating!  It seems like we hardly knew you!  Here and
gone in a flash!.  But seriously, your have persevered throughout your dueling career
here in Bonsur.  We think it is now time for us all to persevere through a few mugs
of smash in your honor! -- Sentinels

Scalp-Hunter -- Oh no.  Don't go trying to mess with this hair!  I'll show you what
you can do with that little razor! -- Bariloche

Harpoon -- Ouch!  Watch what you do with that thing!  Or maybe, I should have been
watching a little more closely. -- Pelargir

So much ambition, so little skill.  Really, it is quite sad. -- Cajetan

Bonsur -- I'm baack!!! -- Chase mgr, Reavers

     Hi.  Welcome back.

Queenie -- Listen here, weenie, next time the Arenamaster won't save your behind. --
Scrambler

Sarah Sundance -- I love turning my foes into a pincushion and not even getting
touched.  Well, if you ever feel froggy again I'll be waiting. -- L'Dy Deathstrike

Pelargir -- I thought I'd killed you when I hit you in the neck that last time.  Oh
well, maybe next time. -- Harpoon

Bariloche -- Now that was damn close.  Might have to try that again. -- Scalp-Hunter

M. Chardinee?  Silly man.  He'd do better to sell insurance. -- Little Venus

I think I'll have to agree with Venus on that one.  Not much to the fight, when you
get down to it.  He just stood there and let me slice him into fajita strips. --
Palmetta Patty

Scrambler -- Oh, no, say it isn't so!  I meet a guy who isn't bad looking, and he
turns out to be a golem--how depressing. -- Queenie
P.S.  Good thing I don't "do" depressed.

L'dy Deathstrike -- Nasty-tempered wench, aren't you?  It'd probably help if you got
totally mokus. -- Sarah Sundance

Blueburn -- I'd better not find you "busy" with any of those wenches! -- Patty

Blago -- But how could I develop my tan? -- Sarah

Our congratulations to the absentee Barrio. -- Jorja and the Beach Babes

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now i'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old frienes and enemies alike.
-- Fizban the Famous
