                                      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.  Woof!  BEACH BABES were a 
bunch of dogs after SENTINELS got through with 'em!  4th ain't so sweet as 1st!  Ya 
gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the 
pain!  CHURCH LADIES is now ranked 3rd with a 2-2-0 turn.  What's with ESCHER?  He 
actually beat BUNION SQUAD's BLACKJACK, and walked away with 17 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at CHURCH LADIES.  MARGO lost 12 points to MANET.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MARGO will provide more easy wins...  Apparently BONSUR 
isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 
challenges this turn!  BUNION SQUAD's hatred of CHURCH LADIES surfaced again as 
RAMROD challenged BONSUR's top dog.  Try as he might, RAMROD wasn't good enough at 
persuading SUZIE to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters 
with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was UNDEAD ARTISTS.  The bums at BUNION SQUAD couldn't face the challenges from 
UNDEAD ARTISTS!  No excuse for that!   
     Warriors of BONSUR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     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

Suzie -- Ow!  I've usually handled your style well... you're truly exceptional.  Well
done. -- Blackjack

Suzie -- I'll give you a try, that is if the Sentinels don't challenge me... --
Ramrod

Jorja -- Got the diplo (and the emailed turn from Lee), thanks!  Stay deadly, my
friend. -- Obregon

Bonsur -- I just LOVE this arena.  Oh, what's this... a chance to fight a SPECIAL
fight?  Tonight?  It's all about me... woo! -- Princess

Ramrod -- Okay, you seem to have gotten away with the kill.  As expected, all we are
accomplishing with the bloodfeuds is piling up the losses.  You are an honorable foe
and poor Blago will have to settle for, "we tried." -- Etughen Khan and the Sentinels

Margo -- Such an aggressive lady of the church.  Thankfuly I wasn't expecting a
little old lady with a jello.  Not that I mind jello, but I wasn't expecting any.
Thanks for the challenge. -- Alphonso

Escher -- That just went wrong from the start.  First, I wasn't expecting an artist,
let alone an undead one.  Second, it turned out to be you.  And you, it seems, are a
bit of an eye-twister.  Had I been expecting you to go left when it looked like you
were going right and parry when it looked like a dodge, I might have been able to
handle it.  But somehow, you never did quite what I thought you were going to do.
I've heard this is typical of you. -- Orsinius

Mary Ann -- I must say, that went better than I expected.  Thanks! -- Queenie

A Khalhums Dwarf?  I mean, sure, they're good dwarves, as these things go, well, most
of them are, but they're so HAIRY. -- Luau Lila
P.S.  I see one of these short, stout, hairy guys, and I almost want to singe off the
hairs and roll them into the barbecue pit, and I'm really not that kind of woman!

A Vicious Pirate?  It is to laugh. -- Kona Kate

Annie Awl -- Ow, punctured! -- Redondo Rhonda

The Ambitious Guard swept me off my feet... and then he stabbed me. -- Sarah Sundance

Princess -- Probably not.  They don't learn well. -- Rhonda
