     Well, what are you looking at, LIN TIRIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see WITCH DOCTOR win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HALGAR 
SNAGTOOTH beat WITCH and WITCH lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, LIN TIRIAN may be getting bland, as CONJURER stays top 
dog in the city.  The Lost Hope Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From LIN TIRIAN's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  SAND DANCERS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like MAGIC ARTISTS avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  HALGAR SNAGTOOTH 
was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have CON MAN in a challenge, going down 13 points for the 
fight.  Guess what?  I thought CON MAN showed great skill and promise when it was 
killed by RED COULTER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for LIN TIRIAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  And now a passing thought on a warrior dying young (CON MAN 
of MAGIC ARTISTS):  You had your chance and now you're dead.  Oh well...  We're all 
going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that 
later?   
     What does the LIN TIRIAN 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!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens
