                                      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, BUNION SQUAD, since BEACH 
BABES took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see THE ARENA STALKER win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly. 
Tsk, tsk, THE ARENA STALKER beat ROSS and ROSS lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as QUEENIE takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
SENTINELS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like UNDEAD ARTISTS avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the BONSUR arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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

                                     PERSONAL ADS

I finally have received the call to the Isle and retirement.  As one of the original
Bunion Squad members, I have a certain amount of pride at my ascension, so many years
in the making.  I started out nearly unstoppable (going 10-0), then hit a slump for
many fights, and ended my career dominating lesser-FE warriors while losing to the
highly-skilled wunderkind that fly up the rankings.  In any event, I bid Bonsur a sad
adieu and wish my many prior opponents well. -- Ramrod

Kate -- I am certain you will give the Champions fits in the coming turns... --
Ramrod

Ramrod started out 13-9-12-13-17-9-11, with MOD/LOW rhythms and favorite weapon...
WAR FLAIL!  Woo!  And here I thought it was the scimitar... stay deadly, my friends.
-- Obregon

Escher -- You are a worthy title holder.  I had my doubts about that challenge, but
the boss thinks you take a shot at the title when you can.  Unless you have already
been creamed by that particular titleholder, then you don't have to beat your head
against that wall again. -- Bariloche

Queenie -- Well, that didn't work!  Judging by my record, I'll be here for a long
time! -- Etughen Khan

Shade Prancer -- Okay, so the boss generally doesn't have us challenge the long
names, but because I had so embarassingly lost that matchup on the previous turn, he
made an exception.  I can't believe I lost the first match! -- Ursa Major

The Convincian -- Close.  I guess I can take that from the fight.  Otherwise, there
isn't much positive to say about that.  I don't like the whole "losing" thing. --
Alphonso Black

Blackjack -- I'm getting closer on that.  A bit more attack, it would seem, is still
needed. -- Orsinius

'Grats to Ramrod for finally gracing some other location with his presence!  A well
earned graduation! -- Sentinels

Etugen Khan -- That was a good meeting (too bad we had to fight), and I thank you for
the skills. -- Queenie
P.S.  Come by the cabana for some smash.  The cranberries seem to have run out, but
there is other stuff around.  We always try to can or dry fruit for later use.
P.P.S.  Love the furry hat!  Do you have another like it?

Ramrod -- I know good posture is important, but sometimes you have to be able to bend
a little. -- Kona Kate

Gateway -- You certainly sucked up the skills.  I guess that means you don't need
smash, right? -- Luau Lila

The Shadow Danc -- The sun drives out the shadows. -- Sarah Sundance

The Bible Thump -- Hmm, got a good rhythm going there.  I bet we could dance to it.
-- Redondo Rhonda

Sorry to see Manet going to the Dark Arena, he looks like we might have enjoyed
fighting him. -- the Beach Babes

Our congratulations to Ramrod. -- Jorja and the Beach Babes
