                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

At ease, Zuwayza. I'm Halsey, Bull Halsey and I remain your Admiral this turn.  My
streak is coming to an end, however.

Effective immediately I will be traveling to Pearl to take command of the base there.
This will only be temporary, however.  I expect to be back in action after October.

It has been an honor and a privilege being your Admiral, and I expect the next man to
take charge to follow my example.

Best of luck to you all.

That is all.

Crew dismissed.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUWAYZA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, THE MOTHERSHIP CC, since 
JESSIE'S SPUDS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Gee, I'm 
impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, VISIONS V2, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
GARRET win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KELVIN beat EASTER BONNET 
and EASTER BONNET lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and 
inability to defend the throne, BULL HALSEY has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start 
setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as DONKEY 
HOTAY takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  THE MOTHERSHIP CC was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led 
the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was MAN OR 
BEAST?.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, MISSOURI WILDLIFE was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can 
give a little credit to DAB1 of VISIONS V2 for challenging up by 23 to AARP!.  DAB1 
won to get 32 points of recognition.   
     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.  It's about time DIAMOND got beat for 
picking on warriors like WALTER PIDGEON.  Bravo, MAN OR BEAST?.  See you at The 
Drunken Ox.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing 
these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the ZUWAYZA arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of ZUWAYZA.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
