                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hey!  I hold the title!
     Take that Athelas!
     There are those who never thought this day would come, and to them all I can say
is "Phhbbbtttt!"
     And you can quote me on that!
Putting aside such statements, let me say that I am proud to hold the title here in
Bonsur, one of the oldest arenas in Alastari.  I am not the first, and hopefully not
the last, Sentinel to hold this position.  But still, I am proud.  It is a grand
position in a grand arena.  Speaking of grand--a big accomplishment as allowed to go
by without comment recently.  The Beach Babes reached 1000 wins!  This is a truly
impressive accomplishment for any team, but for one of Jorja's stables, it is even
more so.  Is this the first to reach that lofty pinnacle?  Impressive, and certainly
worthy of a beach-side party at the Cabana!
     Gannuck
          Duelmaster of Bonsur

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in BONSUR this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, WAVIN' WANDA fought FLAPJACK and 
gained 24 points and contributed to BEACH BABES' 2-3-0.  OMA BRELLA has lost to 
CANNED SAVRADESE, falling 19 points, while helping make BEACH BABES a 2-3-0 turn.  
And all eyes were on BIG BAD DADDY JR this turn as he ascended to the throne of 
Duelmaster.  BONSUR has a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Welcome Wench?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the TOLBIN'S BP 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on BONSUR, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided TOLBIN'S BP stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
SENTINELS.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Hearty mugs of ale were raised in BONSUR today as ARTIE AWL was bid 
farewell to a 12-8-0 warrior, with MAULI LAMA of SENTINELS standing silent and 
pensive.  SENTINELS, with any luck TOOL SHED will successfully bloodfeud MAULI LAMA 
for killing such a warrior as ARTIE AWL.  Have a little decency, will ya?  A brave 
warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight 
is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, BONSUR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in BONSUR and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in BONSUR again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
