     Well, what are you looking at, DULLENS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, CARDOW HUNTERS, since ARCANE 
ROYALTY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see MICKEY HANDS win a fight and gain 11 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, THAT I DO SIR beat GRAY BEAR and GRAY BEAR lost 6 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as GRIM LAUGHTER takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Yellow Dog 
Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  
From DULLENS' trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for DULLENS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in DULLENS to get a drink than The Yellow Dog 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens
