                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             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.

I was unable to get you a dispatch last week because we were on top secret maneuvers
in the Coral Sea.  Fortunately we're now heading back to Pearl.  On the way, we
encountered the secret weapon that the Japanese had prepared for us called Sir
Bluebell.  It wasn't that secret and it definitely wasn't much of a weapon, as we
blew it out of the sea in short order.

Next time, Hirohito, send something more impressive!

In any case we're cruising back into Pearl, as I mentioned, and all men will be
granted a week of shore leave.

That is all.

Crew dismissed.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to MAN OR BEAST?, as they are pushed from the coveted 
top team spot by the VISIONS V2 stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for JEANNE D'ARC, 
who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was WALTER 
PIDGEON, who dropped 9 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
GARRET.  Unlike most arenas, BULL HALSEY managed to get his challenge off against the 
14-11-0 POCKET NEWS.  Well, everybody's pal BULL HALSEY moved his record to 16-2-3 by 
defeating POCKET NEWS in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 13 recognition 
points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at 
that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ZUWAYZA arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid LORDS INC., please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does 
ZUWAYZA really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  
LORDS INC. + Weapons That go Boom = MAN OR BEAST? + Avoid City.  Well just about 
everybody wants a piece of POCKET NEWS, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've 
got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
