     Well, what are you looking at, RIZTAB?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, WHO DA MAN?, since FANTASTIC 
FIVE II took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps up, 
ENGLISH FOOTBALL, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 in 
the rankings?  IMPORTANT turned their 2-1-0 turn into a 7th place rank in the 
listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm 
impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, FANTASTIC FIVE II, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
BLEEDING GUMS win a fight and gain 26 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLEEDING GUMS beat 
T-4 STRAIN and T-4 STRAIN lost 22 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  MARTYR 
challenged COREA for RIZTAB's Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And if 
variety is the spice of life, RIZTAB may be getting bland, as MARTYR stays top dog in 
the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of 
these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  RIZTAB, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  FANTASTIC FIVE II the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was PURE POISON.  Ha ha ha ha!  YODA 
MAN was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted 
or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have NIGHTSHADE in a challenge, going down 9 points for 
the fight.  Guess what?  I thought NIGHTSHADE showed great skill and promise when he 
was bested by NECRO-MAN CY.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  I could say I saw this coming, but so 
could anyone else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  COLOSSUS' 13-11-0 has earned him the 
Dark Arena.  And now a passing thought on a warrior dying young (SPECTRE of SPIRIT'S 
REALM):  You had your chance and now you're dead.  Oh well...  And what a stunning 
loss we have here, boys and girls, YODA MAN of WHO DA MAN? has added the final loss 
to his 12-64-0.  Tee hee!  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through 
use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Only four dead in the Dark Arena this time, which is good.  Maybe makes up, a little,
for our own one-four.  Well, only a very little.  But if the city doesn't perish, we
still have a chance to turn our performance around, which is not likely but would be
good. -- Chocoholic

We salute the participants in the most recent tourney. -- Jorja and Sweet Magic

Thing -- So long as you remember that was JUST luck. -- Chocoholic

Telauges -- I don't know about you, but *I* was dreaming of a lazy weekend at the
beach. -- Honey Chile
P.S.  In the summer.

Science -- Don't be ridiculous!  YOU aren't important, what's important is having
fun! -- Betty Bopp

Flash -- No substance, though. -- Jelly Billy

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, the census form has been eliminated, effective immediately.  Managers may 
register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 80 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the
