     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
LYRATILAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see WAIT win a fight and gain 26 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, WAIT beat 
ISEK KROL and ISEK KROL lost 1 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as KOLTER NEETHE takes the Title and last week's bar tab 
from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Piper's Rest, humph!  I've tasted better ale 
at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From LYRATILAN's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
LYRATILAN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  THE MIDDLE WAY 4 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 ERRATA.  Ha ha ha ha!  
THE HALLWAY was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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 sending CLAUDE BAWLS to the Dark Arena 
was supposed to be one of your better ideas, FUNKY FOLK?  Honor is like a chainmail 
shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me 
on this one.   
     What does the LYRATILAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Has anyone ever figured out of Zontani's seer who predicts "the city" perishing if
there are six deaths in the course of the week ever specified that the six deaths had
to be IN the city in question?  Inquiring minds are curious.

So now I'm graduating, too.  Am I so popular because the fans hope to see the last of
me, or are they regretting that they may be seeing the last of me and want to give me
an unforgettable send-off? -- Kolter Neethe

We salute the tourney participants of Lyratilan. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Mrs. Peacock -- You're no lady, but I've gotta say you earned that title fair and
square. -- Tol Voram

The Kung-Fu Master was disappointing.  No skills. -- Kolter Neethe

Yeah, the Veteran Mercenary wasn't teaching today, either. -- Urbin Yates

I gotta say that the Noble Assassin didn't come through either.  What the heck?  I
was training skills, I checked to make sure.  There should've BEEN skills. -- Isek
Krol

Robin Storz -- You're taking it out on me because some of my teammates have been rude
lately, aren't you? -- Gilgamesh Idon
P.S.  But at least you taught me a skill.
