                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Admiral on deck!

     At ease, Zuwayza.  I'm Halsey, Bull Halsey and I'll be your Admiral this turn.
     Our advanced submarine screen detected enemy activity in the distance.  We
spotted a Cosmo, not sure what the hell that is, in the distance and moved to
intercept.  At 0800 hours, we encountered the enemy and attacked.
     After landing numerous bombs and several missiles, the enemy was destroyed.
     We are moving on to additional targets, though at the moment no one is in range.

That is all.

Crew dismissed.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ZUWAYZA.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain 
in ZUWAYZA, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top 
team--THE MOTHERSHIP CC.  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't 
ask)  Cause for celebration, according to BASH BRO HOUSEMATE.  THE MOTHERSHIP CC 
posted a nice gain, to come in 1st.  Everybody loves a winner...  FURRY FURY had 
cause to celebrate, after CRIMSON BUNNY got 17 points by beating KELVIN.  Win some, 
lose some.  Speaking of which, GOOSE GOSSAGE was winsome, after beating DAB2 and 
seeing him lose 9 points.  MISSOURI WILDLIFE found out that ZUWAYZA isn't a 
democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in 
ZUWAYZA is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are ZUWAYZA's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the 
warriors of CUNNING RUNTS should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided 
team...  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SEINFELD, so did that 
sorry team shy from CUNNING RUNTS If challenges were horses, DRAGON could open up a 
fast food joint!  Mismatched by 8 points, DRAGON lost to PORK CHOP GOLEM.  Is this 
really worth noting?  I thought PORK CHOP GOLEM showed great skill and promise when 
he bested DRAGON.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ZUWAYZA farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir
