     Well, what are you looking at, VALAMANTIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  I can just hear all the boasts coming in 
DETHKLOT's next personal ads.  Their first turn they went 4-1-1.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see SQUIZGOR win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, AMBITIOUS GUARD beat JIMEMMA LOCA and JIMEMMA LOCA lost 10 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, BUT SAND 
STORM is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  The Aradi 
Alyia, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  
From VALAMANTIS' 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 VALAMANTIS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as the next guy, but 
hey DISASTERS, whyja send INFERNO to the Dark Arena, look at his record, huh?  
Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds 
of weapons?   
     What does the VALAMANTIS 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!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

You'd think a Veteran Mercenary would have lots to teach, but he's a total washout on
that. -- Ferris Hale

Yeah, well, as teachers go, the Captured Orc's nothing to write home about, either.
-- Hobban Jepp

In fact, he's even worse than that!  NOT ONE SKILL.  What a waste of time. -- Jerans
La'Roc

     Listen, you, I've got my hands full just pretending to be an orc at all.
     Teaching skills isn't in the job description. -- Eldarmis, standing in until
     someone captures an orc

A pathetic Cult Member does not improve my day, either. -- Fargo Hail

The Ambitious Guard was pretty good that way.  But then, I was trying to catch flies
with honey, not vinegar. -- JimEmma Loca

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
-- Fizban the Famous
