                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of BONSUR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  It seems so recently people were 
saying WASTELAND II was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-0 moved them up 0.  I guess 
they're washed no more...  What's with FATALITY?  He actually beat WORDS THAT END IN 
O's RADIO, and walked away with 23 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at 
BRUTAL LEGION while they watched FATALITY clobber RADIO.  He lost 14 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as she might, SALTON SEAHORSE 
wasn't good enough at persuading TOTAL DISASTER 1.0 to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I 
hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  What do people see in 
BARRIO?  Its 2-2-2?  WORDS THAT END IN O ain't talkin', but it's got 33 points.  Keep 
challenging up 26 points, VEGAS, BABY!, and I won't have to write about you much 
longer.  LAGUNA LIL always accepts those kind of challenges...  I don't get it.  
VEGAS, BABY! goes and challenges LAGUNA LIL, way above it, but gets 1 points after it 
loses!  Is this a new strategy?   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  BONSUR is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Bonsur -- The Sentinels are taking the sands for the first time since 1992.  It is
sad to see the arena so small.  Alas, who knows how long the return will last, but at
least briefly we shall find glory on the sands once more. -- Nomad, mgr. of the
Sentinels

Vegas, Baby! -- Gods, I hope not.  Gambling is INSANE.  Besides, I'm a farmer's
daughter, and I watched him gamble the farm every day, hoping it would rain when it
should, and no late frosts, and all that stuff.  No way I want more of that. --
Salton Seahorse the not totally insane
P.S.  Besides, I'm already gambling my life here.  That's enough for me.

The Venomous Gigolo hurts, he really hurts.  Gosh, how awful.  My heart would bleed
for him, but he missed.  It's his heart bleeding, instead, and I gotta love that. --
Laguna Lil, feeling nasty today

Oh, the Ambitious Guard is out again, and he's losing again, tra la!  Being big and
strong is not enough. -- an exasperated Beach Betty
P.S.  A little brains would help, for one thing.

Albion -- Gods, that's weird.  A neutered albino dwarf?  I never imagined anything
like that. -- Sandy Shore
P.S.  Just as well, it would have been a nightmare.

Blackshell, Freebooter of the Trier -- (bouncing up and down eagerly)  Yes!  Yes!
Tell me! -- Sandy Shore

1 July 2006
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

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.
