                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, that was amusing.  The Kung-Fu Master took offense at our comments last
time, and here he is again, B. C. Li, Master of Kung-Fu, intending to "show me how
it's done."  As if he knows!

                                   Little Venus

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of BONSUR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Not for nothing has LITTLE VENUS in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat 
skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in BONSUR seem to 
feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city BONSUR.  BONSUR, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is SENTINELS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of SERPENTS 
HOLD last week.  Busy avoiding SENTINELS?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  WHIPLASH take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in BONSUR.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it 
seems that SCRAMBLER posted a challenge against the more highly recognized SARAH 
SUNDANCE.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand SCRAMBLER bested SARAH 
SUNDANCE.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can not but mention 
with disdain the name of HARPOON who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 
12 points below in the rankings.  I thought HARPOON showed great skill and promise 
when he subdued REAPER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in BONSUR.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Nomad -- Thanks for the gracious welcome back.  Sorry about L'dy Deathstrike killing
your man.  She's a real pain sometimes. -- Chase

Queenie -- Don't knock on golems until you've tried it.  It's just like in "Young
Frankenstein," "He vould have an enormous schwanzstucker."  That's right! --
Scrambler

Pelargir -- That's what you get for challenging people!!! -- L'dy Deathstrike

Blago the Axe -- Your skills show why you're still an Initiate. -- Harpoon

Bariloche -- Maybe the third time is the charm?!? -- Scalp Huntr

Sarah Sundance -- Are you jealous of my beautiful hair??? -- L'dy Deathstrike

Suzie -- Okay, uhm OUCH!!! -- Scrambler

Cajetan & Sentinels -- Congrats on the revenge.  Can I look forward to getting
bloodfeuded for the next 3 turns??? -- L'Dy Deathstrike

S'ntinels -- As far as the apostrophe goes.  I'm sure you'll figure it out.  It's a
very simple reason. -- Chase (mgr. of Reavers

     Defective keyboard?

Etugen Khan -- I'm pretty good with that epee, no?!?  I haven't won here since I got
back, nice to finally break that streak.  'Course, I am tired of fighting your
teamates, too. -- Scalp-Huntr

Bariloche -- Is this a lateral bloodfeud challenge?  Thanks for all the skills. --
Harpoon

Blago the Axe -- Thought I had you until I broke my sword. -- Gateway

All -- Why am I the most challenged warrior?  I was not the one who put the Ex-Lax on
the dessert tray.  I promise. -- Harpoon

Serpents -- Oh sure, you just waltz into this arena like you own the place and kill
our rookie!  Just like a serpent!  Why, I bet you'd even try to tempt the lovely
young ladies in this arena with apples if given a chance!  It seems we shall have to
teach this serpent a bit of a lesson about good and evil.  Evil being killing
rookies! -- Sentinels

Serpents -- But honestly, welcome to the arena, if you are a bit violent. -- Nomad
and the Sentinels

L'dy Deathstrike -- Mission accomplished. -- Cajetan

Gateway -- A daring challenge, unless you have a lot more FE than you let on.  And
you do know they closed that arena, right? -- Blago

Harpoon -- Gotcha!  I was tired of scalphunter. -- Bariloche

More than likely there will only be a couple of Sentinels fighting this turn.  We
hope this situation is temporary, and the Sentinels can return to their role as a
consistent competitor in the fine city of Bonsur.

I would pour scorn on the Veteran Mercenary, but he was polite, he lost, and he
didn't keep staring at my chest during the fight.  So I'll stand him a glass of
smash. -- Saltilla

And a Captured Pirate, as though it's remarkable!  I can capture a pirate any time I
want, but mostly I don't want to.  They're grabby. -- Queenie

Somehow I don't see a golem as making a success of being a Vicious Pirate. -- Sarah
Sundance

Reaper -- Well, thank you.  That makes a good beginning for me. -- Terri Towell

Etugan Khan -- And chasing beachballs in the sand. -- Sarah Sundance
