     Well, what are you looking at, IAYE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens before? 
Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, THE WARLOCKS, since THE A'S -- LOSERS 
II took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  RANDOM turned their 
3-1-0 turn into a 6th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, 
and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see MOPT 
win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, STINGER beat H. HATRACK and H. 
HATRACK lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, IAYE may be getting bland, as MESSENGER BIRD stays top dog in the city.  I'm 
not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know 
what's new, don't you, IAYE?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
IAYE, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  THE A'S -- LOSERS 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 LENPROS.  Ha ha ha ha! 
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, BIGFOOTS was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, TELA was 
challenged by DR. ROSENZWEIG, who was ranked 28 points below her.  And, oof!  DR. 
ROSENZWEIG saw stars around his helmet, after losing the fight, and disappointing the 
crowds, I might add.   
     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.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the IAYE arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as comfortable 
to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and 
I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Brigade -- Welcome to Iaye.  We are glad to have you here.  If we can help in any
way....  Good luck. -- The Lenpros

Congratulations to a fabulous group of Lord Protectors -- Messenger Bird, Dark Star,
and Bertha.  Well done, Iayeans. -- Lenpro

Gissanniah -- You proved too much for my paltry doctorial skills.  Next time I shall
have to procure a stun gun.  Salute. -- Dr Rosenzweig

The River -- A thump here, a thump there, a thump everywhere! -- Admiral Iso

The Clear -- I was on my game.  I am proud. -- Paratoms

Editor -- This time I did not need to enlist the time honored occupation. -- Paratoms

     Good.  These things can get a bit too honoured. -- Ed.

Freeda -- You need to loosen up.  Give it a try.  You will like it. -- Admiral Iso

We apologize for not being at full force in the arena at the moment.  We will come on
strong after the Face, we assure you. -- Lenpro

Dr. Rosenzweig -- You thought you could "play doctor" with me?  As if! -- Gissanniah

Messenger Bird -- I can't say I care for your message, but I'm trying not to take it
out on the messenger. -- Freeda

Walt Weiss -- (pained look)  I thought you were supposed to be a loser! -- Perrojo

Triple-X -- You're a LOVE letter?  I thought you were a beer! -- Rishteke
P.S.  Of course, that--you being a beer--would explain why men love you.

Friendly Constable?  Says who?  He made jokes about the size of my feet and said I
needed a parking permit for my shoes if I was going to stand on the street.  So I hit
him. -- Bigfoots

Amendment for "Fratsfa's Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
