                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Habaneros... sounds good!  A spicy party!  And a spicy party is fitting to see
me off to the Isle!  Learning at almost 3 skills a fight (with a 17 wit) certainly
helped matters, but I never even tried the epee.  Perhaps I'll give it a go... if I
can get Nomad to give me a shot at fighting in the Big Leagues.
     As for the title fight, Lila put up a good fight, but I have had that matchup
before and it suits me well.  Perhaps I will get Eileen this time.  Let's see what
the fates serve up for my last fight here in fair Bonsur.  And then again what is
served up at the post fight beach party.  Habaneros, perhaps?

     I leave you in the very youthful hands of my Sentinel teammates.

Lord Protector Alphonso Black
Duelmaster of Bonsur

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly BONSUR games.  ANZAHANZEK caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 
20 points in recognition.  Not for nothing has ALPHONSO BLACK in the past laid claim 
to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In BONSUR "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in BONSUR these days is DEMONIC FURY.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of SENTINELS are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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!   
     The girls are as pretty in BONSUR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Saw Horse -- Somehow I think I need more of an anvil to go up againt.  That might
suit me better.  But thanks for the learns. -- Skara Brae

Eileen -- Oh come on, Eileen!  Is that the way to treat a Lord Protector? -- Lord
Protector Orsinius

Orsinius -- True, it happens--death in the arena.  And it usually seems to happen in
streaks.  But it'll pass. -- Jorja

Skara Brae -- That's why we paint murals on the underside of the tables. -- Ghost of
Belle Tree

Whiskeyjack -- WHISKEY in your smash?  Gods forbid!  But the new cranberry crop is
beginning to come in, and that really makes the best base for smash, so come on
around to the cabana. -- Dellea Dover

Our congratulations to Alphonso Black. -- Jorja and the Beach Babes

Alphonso Black and the Sentinels -- Party at the cabana tonight. -- the Beach Babes

Alphonso Black -- A fight I walk away from is a good fight, so I guess that one was.
And I'm not totally innocent in the "killing on the sands" line myself.  So... c'mon
around to the barbecue tonight at the cabana. -- Luau Lila
P.S.  And congratulations on your graduation.

Annie Awl -- You really punched me. -- Dellea Dover
P.S.  And then you poured in a major dose of skills, so thanks!

Whiskeyjack -- It's probably your style.  If you didn't insist on sitting in pine
trees and squawking, you could give more time to working out.  Of course, sitting in
a pine tree (hold the squawks) can be more fun than working out, so.... -- Pearl
White

Pam -- That's no way to welcome a newcomer to town! -- Bellamore the Battered and
Bruised

Woodchip Willa -- Oh, cheese, we must've been a sight, both of us stumbling around
trying to figure out what to do.  At least we both survived. -- Annalee

it and that we will see you there!
