     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KYR'TERR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see SLINGSHOT win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
BENITO CHATTE beat TRYPTOPHAN and TRYPTOPHAN lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VETERAN MERCENARY, BUT OBSESSION is 
still the Duelmaster because it has the most recognition points!  Kickbacks and 
bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their 
fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  SCENT OF A WOMAN was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like SUPERIOR FORCES ZC 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in KYR'TERR to get a drink than The Warty Toad! 
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
KYR'TERR.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

Obsession -- Wow, me in a title match?  What a thrill! -- Benito Chatte
P.S.  That would have been a lot more intersting and FUN if you'd been a woman
instead of a bottle of perfume.
P.P.S.  And somehow, that doesn't seem like my own proper strategy.  I mean,
warflail?  Jorja hates those things.

That's a Dangerous Criminal?  He's just a pussycat, really. -- Dorine Eagel

Userous Merchant...that means an increase in interest on my credit card, right?
Retroactive, of course. -- Faizun Gote the not-amused

Well, look, I don't DO Dangerous Criminals.  I'm a gentle guy.  Really. -- Kully Lamm

That was (wincing) a very CONVINCING Cult Member. -- Halda Impola

Cowed Fratsfa Slave -- Gods, show a little spine! -- Faizun Gote

Finn Kinn Conn -- No. -- Dorine Eagel

Our confused congratulations to Aiken, who isn't even listed that I can see, on his,
her, or its graduation, and also on the tourney victory.  And a very hearty
congratulations to Obsession on her tourney championship. -- Jorja and the Zoo
