                             Notes from the arena champ.

Admiral on deck!

At ease, Zuwayza.  I'm Halsey, Bull Halsey and I remain your Admiral this turn.  As
if you expected someone else.

Yesterday I was attacked by a Mercenary from a foreign source.  He arrived on my
flagship under the pretense of being a messenger from Nimitz.  I allowed him on
board, but became suspicious when he had no idea about the layout of a carrier.  It
didn't seem to make much sense.  He attacked me and I dispatched him.  My staff
determined that he was a veteran who turned mercenary and has turned his back on the
U S of A.

So end all enemies of Uncle Sam!

That is all.

Crew dismissed.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUWAYZA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, 
for there are sorrows to drown for SEINFELD, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 4 
into 10th.  Ha!  BASH BRO HOUSEMATE turned their 1-0-0 turn into a 5th place rank in 
the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now 
let's all watch THE MOTHERSHIP CC's heads swell from their 5-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha 
ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see YOGA PANTS win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, GRAVITRON beat 
POCKET NEWS and POCKET NEWS lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  BULL HALSEY 
TV challenged MISSOURI WILDLIFE for ZUWAYZA's Title this turn, and guess what 
happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, ZUWAYZA may be getting bland, as BULL 
HALSEY stays top dog in the city.  The Drunken Ox, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ZUWAYZA's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ZUWAYZA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  MAN OR BEAST? the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like BASH BRO HOUSEMATE 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  MISSOURI WILDLIFE was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  
Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in ZUWAYZA to get a drink than The Drunken Ox!  
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
ZUWAYZA.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Dont Pay Rent -- We see a lot of that, people come out of the cities to hunt, and
they think the countryside is all public property.  The farmers get ticked, I can
tell you, and that doesn't even approach the reaction of the deer-farmers. --

Napoleon -- I believe this is what I have heard called "Pushy Little Snot Syndrome,"
isn't it? -- Dragon
