     Well, what are you looking at, VALAMANTIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, SPLIT II, since MIDDLE WAY 
10 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see SAND STORM win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, SAND STORM beat RAMMSTEIN and RAMMSTEIN lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, VALAMANTIS may be getting bland, as 
CAPTAIN SCOURGE 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  RAMMSTEIN was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of VALAMANTIS.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back 
of this place-- Snide Clemens
