                             Notes from the arena champ.

Admiral on deck!

At ease, Zuwayza.  I'm Halsey, Bull Halsey and I have returned!  I am your Admiral
this once again.

The war in the Pacific is raging on.  All signs point to an American victory, but
Japan is clever.  They are disguising their new initiatives with clever names like
Gravitron and Sir Bluebell.  That last on sounds like a Brit, but they are Japanese,
I tell you!  They are new models and they are deadly.  Don't you forget it.

This week the Big E sailed in toward Midway and encountered this Sir Bluebell.  All
bombers were launched and we scored direct hits on the enemy.  We drove him back, all
the way to Tokyo.

Next week additional engagements are planned.  All troops should be prepared!

That is all.

Crew dismissed.

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  MAN OR BEAST? now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep 
it.  Coming up with a solid 3-1-1 outing, MAN OR BEAST? has advanced 4 places in the 
rankings.  Advancing in the rankings was VISIONS V2 who went from last turn's 
38-44-5, to this week's record of 41-45-5.  Hey everybody, watch out for MOTHER GHEA 
NEWS, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  MODERN PHRENOLOGY was subdued by PAXTON and drops 14 points.  Our 
battling duelmaster BULL HALSEY has managed to hold the title, fending off LADY 
LILA's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, LORDS INC..  Can you believe 
they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad THE MOTHERSHIP CC?  Big bad THE MOTHERSHIP CC.  Big bad THE MOTHERSHIP CC.  
ZUWAYZA's afraid of the big bad THE MOTHERSHIP CC.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may 
not be funny, but catch MAN OR BEAST?'s act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from THE MOTHERSHIP CC.  Well just about everybody wants a 
piece of POCKET NEWS, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  Well, it looks 
like GARRET wasn't happy with last turn's rank, so he went for broke by challenging 
up 33 points.  No guts, no glory.  Some advice to GARRET.  Please don't challenge up 
33 points to fight a 11-2-1 fighter like, say SHARK NORMAN.  (Okay, so it may be a 
little late).   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  It's not often when you see a 11-7-1 warrior like LADY 
LILA kick the bucket.  I wonder if LORDS INC. will recover from the blow.  Big man!  
BULL HALSEY kills LADY LILA.  Who ya gonna fight next, BULL HALSEY--Minnie Mouse?  I 
hope LORDS INC. has a good enough fighter to beat the snot out of BULL HALSEY.  
Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very important step on 
the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ZUWAYZA have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
