                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for M.J., who pummelled EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, to pocket 21 
points.  ELINDE GOSS certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to 
MICKEY MANTLE and losing 4 points in the process!  In KALTOS, nothing is permanent 
(except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, GLORIA IMBRO.  Word has it 
one team in KALTOS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are KALTOS' warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and 
an overtaxed simile, I now bid KALTOS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Jiles -- Well, eat your heart-balls and enjoy them, then. -- Gloria Imbro
P.S.  I hope they have enough garlic in them.

I really don't get it with this Guard's Ambitions.  Can't he see that nothing is
going to come of it? -- Fergus Hill

Convicted Thief -- Get your hand out of my pocket! -- Orverd Gquill

What's the deal with these Cult Members?  Nothing wrong with being a Cult Member,
that they should be sent to the arena for it, is there? -- Jeri Lough

Oh, gods, the Beggar.  I feel kinda bad about hitting him, but it's my job, isn't it?
-- Elinde Goss

Elinde Goss -- You are an uncharitable fool. -- Oh-John, Beggar in Good Standing

Jeri Lough -- That will be accounted an act of charity from me, letting you win.  All
I saw was a lot of random activity and no skill.  I suggest that you spend more time
practicing than partying, young woman. -- Lorando Selmetrio of the Cult of Two Rings

Orverd Quill -- Listen, you!  I had PLANS for that arm! -- Hector Jones, of the
Famous Jones Brothers, Robbers of Banks

Fergus Hill -- Though the Commission, of course, does not acknowledge it, I learned
several useful things from you.  Thanks.  Remind me not to arrest you next time you
spit on the sidewalk. -- Kish Alfors, one Ambitious Guard among many

To those interested, G.E.C.K.O., Inc, is looking for able-bodied warriors to embark
on a dangerous mission.  Those interested (or for more details) diplo me at:

30 June 2006
All -- I am looking for able bodied warriors, magic-wielding wizards, faith-healing
clerics, and quick-handed thieves to begin a quest requested by the Emperor of the
Southern Kingdom of Crailmia.  All interested parties can diplo me in arena 93 --
Noblish Island, c/o Will-O-Wisps (1422) or write to me at -- Robert Bennett, 317173,

BROTHER KNIGHTS OF THE DESOLATE EMPIRE -- Hail brothers where ever you are to be
found!  We are engaging in arena 31.  Let them feel our wrath.  Onward to glory!!! --
Dark knight Blackstorm

1 July 2006
Soultaker -- Read your e-mail! -- Guardian

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.
