Chapter Joe Mahma
Joe Mahma is a man. "Behind the table lit by a spotlight sits Joe Mahma, smoking a cigar." The description is "Joe Mahma, the legendary Yo Momma insult battle grandmaster, had skills that were far beyond any others. Stories tell of reckless newcomers who were foolish enough to challenge him and then spent years in therapy after a single quip from Joe had broken them down.
It's been said that his almost supernatural skills were also his downfall. He perfected his craft relentlessly. He went too far, where no mortal man should venture. After one final battle that left death and destruction in its wake he disappeared from the public eye and turned in an instant from a celebrated superstar into an outcast.
Now he sits there, with short gray hair and wrinkled face, from time to time puffing smoke from his cigar. An ugly scar runs across his face and right eye. An eyepatch covers the damaged eye but the good one still has a sharp, intelligent glint."
