Seriously?*

I beat 'em and the Isle comes a knocking, time and time again.  For me?  No.  For the 
losers.  The wannabees.  The XXXXXXXXXX mouth breathers.  Makes no sense.

I tell you, it's a bunch of bullsXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

And, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

XXXXXXXX your sensitivity!  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX and 
the XXXX horse you rode in on!

Still Duelmaster over you posers.  Kiss my XXXX.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARUAK CITY brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see HOT DOG GAL win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
FERDINAND beat WEISSHAUPT and WEISSHAUPT lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, WARRIOR THREE has lost the Title 
of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as BESTARIUS takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ARUAK CITY's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  HOT BEASTS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were 
this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it 
looks like AARDVARK & CO. avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  COLOSSAL BABE was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a 
little credit to GREEN THUMB of COLORIFIC for challenging up by 25 to TEH PERFORATOR. 
GREEN THUMB won to get 94 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.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, SAUREYA of SCORPIONS has added the final loss to hers 3-5-0.  Tee 
hee!  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you 
sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ARUAK CITY to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this 
place-- Snide Clemens
