     Queenie held up the latest newsletter between thumb and forefinger, as though it
was something she didn't like touching.  "Top Team?  How did we make Top Team with a
mere 3-2?"
     "Just lucky, I guess," Kona Kate answered.  Most of her attention was on the pan
of coffee beans she was roasting, so when Queenie slapped her on top of her head, she
jumped, startled.  Coffee beans scattered like popping corn.  "Hey!"
     "They'll be okay if we wash them, won't they?" Sarah asked, scrambling to pick
up the scattered beans.  "Ouch!  They're HOT!"
     "Roasting does that to 'em," Kate said.  "Yes, we can wash them before I finish
the roasting.  Lightly, mind you--don't want to wash all the zing away."
     "But you can still make your special coffee cake?"
     "Right.  And what I say is, it's as good as Lila's rum cake, plus you don't get
a hangover from eating it."
     "Well, good, because I invited Durok Stoneheart, the Khalhums Dwarf, you know,
to drop by.  He wants to try the coffee cake."
     "He beat you, and you invited him to come party with us?" Queenie asked.
     "Sure, why not?  He was doing his job, same like me, and he was doing it better.
And he could've killed me, you know, but he didn't.  Besides, I bet he doesn't REALLY
have a heart of stone, and I want to find OUT."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow, five awards, and we're all over the front page of the newsletter!  This is
awful.  No, don't laugh, it really IS awful.  You'll have seen already, Jorja's got
this new directive for us:  if we make top team, we have to write a little spotlight.
She will accept some excuses, such as, "There's no one in this arena to read it," or,
"Really, truly, it's bedtime, and we couldn't be coherent if we tried with both
hands," but she warned us not to try that stuff too often.  I just hope she gets OVER
this, you know?  It's too much!

                                       Queenie

P.S.  Good fight, Escher.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of BONSUR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  CHURCH LADIES had cause 
to celebrate, after EILEEN got 16 points by beating PERSISTENT BEGGAR.  Win some, 
lose some.  Speaking of which, REDONDO RHONDA was winsome, after beating URSA MAJOR 
and seeing him lose 13 points.  QUEENIE found out being BONSUR's Duelmaster isn't all 
nuts and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  You could cut the tension with a scimitar 
as BARILOCHE of SENTINELS met the Duelmaster.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster 
were disappointed by BARILOCHE, of SENTINELS, who despite a 14-11-1 couldn't overcome 
BONSUR's Number 1.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in BONSUR avoid UNDEAD ARTISTS.  Like a pup with its 
tail between its legs, SENTINELS scurried away from UNDEAD ARTISTS.  Oh, the shame!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in BONSUR is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  BONSUR, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Welcome Wench.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in

and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --
Tripwire

Chuck -- There are a lot of your style up here at the moment.  And most of them
aren't the traditional scummy sort.  I liked that match. -- Bariloche

Kate -- I will win that fight eventually.  Eventually.  Maybe I need better armor? --
Orsinius

Annie Awl -- A good fight.  Equal records should make for a good fight.  What exactly
is an awl good for in an arena anyway? -- Alphonso

Orsinius -- Good fight?  Listen, I washed those coffee beans, so if you want to come
by the cabana for coffee cake and smash, I can promise you that only CLEAN beans will
be used. -- Kona Kate

Durok Stoneheart, Khalhums Dwarf -- Er, good fight?  Not that I liked it much, but
some days are like that. -- Sarah Sundance

The Bible Thump -- Not today, not unless you can get into a rhythm to work with the
guitar player.  Then, maybe. -- Luau Lila

The Shadow Danc -- Darn.  I tried to stymie you with an overcast sky, but you found
shadows anyway.  Oh, well.  Back to the old drawing board. -- Redondo Rhonda
P.S.  Really, we need to get ourselves a NEW drawing board.  The old one's falling to
bits.

Ramrod -- Fits, eh?  And caffeine jitters, too. -- Kona Kate

Etughen Khan -- That's okay, it'll give us time to get really friendly. -- Queenie

We salute the tourney participants but want to know why the ones in the lower ranks
didn't do better.  This is Bonsur!  We should do better. -- the Beach Babes, and
Jorja, too
