                             Notes from the arena champ.

      Otis, there are just too many of you around.  Despite your evident skills--
after all, you've lived this long--they're spread too thinly.  A skill for this Otis,
a skill for that one, and soon enough there's nothing left for YOU.  Better to be
sequential than all at the same time.

                                       Yatzee

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for BURN ME, who flew 
up 15 points in the rankings after mashing PERSISTENT BEGGAR like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was DOMINO JOE, who 
dropped 8 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with ULDI SHOON.  
ETERNAL D.J. got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than 
anxious to kick YATZEE's tail out of the throne!  It's a proud day for the FRAT PARTY 
BLOWOUT stable, as their warrior, ETERNAL D.J., ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  4 
out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that 
location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT, please raise you 
hand.  Wow.  Does OSKSI really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause LEGENDARY MEN V beats feet every time FRAT PARTY 
BLOWOUT smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were 
votes, HEARTS would be president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to 
win.  Challenging down 47 points was OTIS.  Pretty soon he'll be using two shields 
and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  Definition of petty:  OTIS 
overcame SHARAN KHOR, a mismatch of 47 points.  OTIS of FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT had better 
have a good reason for challenging down 9 points in a challenge which he won.  I 
thought OTIS showed great skill and promise when he defeated HEARTS.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  OTIS defied all odds and slew 
BLACK ORC in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as BLACK 
ORC's meat is notoriously tough.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and 
will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Otis -- Well, Yatzee probably had a point, but I wish HIS Otis had the skills today
and not YOU.  Drat. -- Sharan Khor

Eternal D.J. -- My dear boy, you cannot believe I would join you in a bathtub...with
that radio going?  No, no, that is just ASKING for trouble, dear boy.  Don't do it.
-- Hearts

I hate Kung-Fu.  It's...it's un-Delarquan. -- Domino Joe, a firm believer in steel
P.S.  Besides, he's a dwarf.  That's gotta be bad.

Otis -- This is, what do they call it?  A rite of passage, an initiation?  Okay, I've
done my otis.  Now I get to fight standbys, yes? -- Maur Tolidar

10 July 2006
The Dark Knights sat at the Dark Table with grim faces.  All present knew that there
could be no quarter.  The Forces of Desolation would be unleashed.  There would be no
turning back, no mercy and no hesitation to do what was necessary.  Teeth gritted and
knuckles whitened with fury as the IMPERIAL PROCLAMATION was signed by each Dark
Knight.
     AS OF JULY 1, 2006 -- WAR IS DECLARED ON THE ALLIANCE KNOWN AS THE VENDETTA
CARTEL.
     The Desolate Empire -- Dark Knights:  Ancient Creep, Blackstorm, Dok Sik, Goat,
Heathen, Hatebred, Kon, Osiris, Toker, Wasby the Great

14 July 2006
In response to the Desolate Empire's declaration of war, the Vendetta Cartel offers
the following response:

The members of the Vendetta Cartel can be found in 1, 8, 9, 10,  11, 14, 22, 25, 28,
31, 39, 45, 47, 50, 52, 54, 59, 60, 100, and 106.  Stop yapping in the all-arena ads,
pick an arena, issue a challenge, actually win something, and then maybe (and we
stress maybe) you may speak.  You may come to our home arenas (8, 31, and 47) and
confront us, but we suggest you learn to win in your own "home" arena (52) first.
