     Well, what are you looking at, LIN TIRIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now let's all watch DUNCAN'S BEST's 
heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big 
deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see BIG BOSS win a fight and gain 
17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BIG BOSS beat HAMFIST and HAMFIST lost 10 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, LIN TIRIAN may be 
getting bland, as MEZQUINO POLLO 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, 
LIN TIRIAN?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Well, at least we put five fighters (loosely defined) on the sands.  We hear that 
other Sand Dancers teams have been reduced in numbers by unreplaced deaths and 
graduations.  Tough. -- Ann Nasty, reluctantly for the Sand Dancers, but better me 
than some of the others

Habanero -- Feisty little dude, aren't you?  I like that in a man, up to a point. -- 
Ann Nasty

Rice & Beans -- No wonder you're a dwarf.  No meat in your diet.  Bah. -- Masked 
Marauder

Tug -- You're not a dwarf!  Woe, alas! -- The Weeper

I got matched with a Cult Member, and for some reason I thought it said a Marshmallow.  
Then I "fought" him and remembered why:  he is a marshmallow. -- Hamfist
P.S.  Oh, I see.  The next fight involves a marshmallow....

Marshmallow King -- I thought you would be soft and puffy! -- Anonymous, much 
aggrieved
P.S.  I should not be at the bottom of the rankings.  Somebody, fix that!

Listen, more of you need to lose to us!  We're being threatened with an adventure, and 
the possibilities for an adventure in or near Lin Tirian in the winter are HORRIBLE.  
We've already had snow! -- Ann Nasty
