                           Banished to DragonHead Arena
                              by Hammer the WordSmith

     Hammer reacted quickly to the news that his favorite gladiator Sexy Selena Rocks
had been mercilessly slain by the Sentinel named Bariloche.  Ironically, it was Nomad
who had managed the killing blow, but Hammer held no animosity towards his friend.
The veteran manager merely banished his Babes to DragonHead Arena, before searching
for a suitable stable and gladiators to send to Bonsur Arena as replacements.
     Hammer noted that both Queenie and Luau Lila of Beach Babes were griping in the
Bonsur Arena P-ads about the length of stable and gladiator names.  So the veteran
manager decided to anoint his new stable with the moniker Bonsur Long Names in their
honor!!!!!
     Hammer studied his prospective gladiators before finally choosing The Shade
Prancer, The Arena Stalker, The Street Walker, The Bible Thumper and The Shadow
Dancer to unleash upon the Bonsur Arena sands to annoy these Beach Babes!!!!!  This
course of action by the veteran manager would more than make up for his decision to
abandon Blood Feuding his old friend Nomad by banishing his Babes from Bonsur Arena.

"May Your Blades Be Sharp and Your Wits Sharper!"

Hammer
Minister of War
Crimson Crusader

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in BONSUR since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  BONSUR LONG NAMES' walking 
tall now that they went 5-0-0 their first time out.  But we know what awaits them 
soon...  What's with ETUGEN KHAN?  She actually beat BEACH BABES' KONA KATE, and 
walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at BEACH BABES.  KONA 
KATE lost 14 points to ETUGEN KHAN.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe KONA KATE 
will provide more easy wins...  Har har har!  Did SUZIE wimp out, or just get lazy?  
Anyway, she's not Duelmaster anymore.  I'm sure BONSUR is excited about MARY ANN, the 
new Duelmaster from CHURCH LADIES.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I 
have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team 
is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
BONSUR thinks SENTINELS and their 416-274-22 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at CHURCH LADIES couldn't face the challenges from 
SENTINELS!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, CAJETAN!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Bonsur Barbarians -- Bonsur Babes Rock have been banished to DragonHead Arena and are
now replaced by my new stable of gladiators named Bonsur Long Names! -- Hammer

Nomad -- How fitting that your gladiator scragged my favorite gladiator! -- Hammer

Chase -- Thanks for the welcome! -- Hammer

The Editor -- Thanks for the manager listing last issue! -- Hammer

Florida Facers -- Congratulations to the  Winners!  Condolences to the Losers! --
Hammer

Queenie and Luau Lila -- Thanks for your griping providing my inspiration for naming
my new stable and gladiators! -- Hammer

Bonsur Beasties -- Hammer put a gag order on his departed Bonsur Babes Rock stable,
so they could not convey any sad goodbyes!  Our blades are thirsting for honor and
glory in Bonsur Arena now! -- Bonsur Long Names

Pam -- Huh, I thought you were some kind of spray-on cooking grease, a product for
which I have no use at all.  So I didn't take you seriously, as I should have done.
-- Redondo Rhonda

Etugen Khan -- No no no!  It's step-kick-kick, not kick-step-kick.  If you don't do
it right, you run into people on the dance floor. -- Queenie

T. Babe Martha -- It must be your human half, an elf wouldn't be that wide at your
height. -- Sarah Sundance

Is it not amazing that a golem can be, quite thoroughly, a Vicious Pirate?  It's
enough to make you believe in Free Will! -- Kona Kate

Orsinius -- Just for that, you'll have to come by the cabana for our "all you can
eat" luau.  Roast pig, yams, plenty of smash. -- Luau Lila

Suzie -- Congratulations on the title, you were one of the warriors I was worried
about.  I suspect you will hold that throne for a while. -- Cajetan

Rockin' Babes -- That was a very unfortunate result for that matchup.  Despite the
small size of the arena, in two turns our teams have only met once.  Yet that one
matchup resulted in the loss of sexy Salena.  Unfortunate.  Hopefully you do not
regret your return to the arena as we are quite pleased that you are here.  I await
your bloodfeud if you wish to do so. -- Bariloche

Queenie -- That was not at all the plan.  Not that there really was a plan since it
was a random matchup.  Perhaps the lack of a real plan is my problem? -- Etugen

Luau Lila -- Some things just work well. -- Orsinius

Harpoon -- I'm getting a bit tired of that pointy thing. -- Blago
