                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARKERS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  If this keeps up, ASSASSIN NATION, 
you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 9 in the rankings?  
CHAMPIONS OF STEEL turned their 3-2-0 turn into a 6th place rank in the listings this 
turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch 
ORCISH IDIOMS' heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big 
talk, big deal.  ARKERS saw the first turn for THE ANIMALS, a 5-0-0, and some teams 
are scared, others are too arrogant to notice.  Take note friends, take note.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see TIEN win a fight and gain 50 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KIK BAKET OW TOE beat ELIXIR and ELIXIR lost 11 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ARKERS may be getting bland, 
as INOCHI stays top dog in the city.  The Welcome Wench, humph!  I've tasted better 
ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ARKERS' trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  ARKERS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
PENUMBRAL MISTS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
it looks like DEATH'S CHOSEN avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would 
be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  AERYN SUN was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Looks like time for 
laurels or hemlock, ZINGER was challenged by AROURA, who was ranked 28 points below 
him.  But here's a pretty tale--AROURA did lose the fight, but gained 6 worth of 
recognition.  Some long shots can pay off, I guess.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Let's see, 19-9-0.  Pretty good record for 
a living warrior.  A sad one though, for a dead one.  Such is the case for ALAIN 
DRAGOON of LA PENTARCHIE.  Tsk.  You can run, TIEN, but maybe you can't hide from LA 
PENTARCHIE.  Killing ALAIN DRAGOON is something the rest of YAKUZA may not be able to 
help you with.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to see AERYN SUN 
and LEVIATHAN at The Welcome Wench tonight celebrating their bloodfeud victory over 
SOHEI.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing 
these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ARKERS to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

La Pentarchie -- Another 2-0!  You have our number! -- Curator

Richardthelionheart was a 15-7-8-15-15-9-15 BA.  He was fronting for the French. --
Curator

Watch out for the Orcs! -- Curator

DeGotti -- Welcome to Arkers.  My brother, Fandil The Wise, from The Arena Of The Red
Sands, sends his regards. -- Curator, Smithsonians

Jernig Mars -- You are too funny for words. -- Lady MacBeth

Slugbait, Crip -- The FTF was a great pleasure. -- Curator

Yakuza -- You are a true champ.  Salute! -- ZZZZ's

Got Cat's Tongue -- Now that's what I'm talkin' about! -- Zinger

Nytemair and Baltimore had a rough meeting.  I think Baltimore wanted to put Nytemair
back in a fighting mood...anyway the Frenchies had a brilliant 2-0 to make a 6-2
total.  Curator and Z man, pull yourselves together! -- Le Pentarque

Inochi -- You are so young and dashing that my slow and old warriors are not really
enthusiastic about fighting you.  Aujard is almost falling in love with Tien, and
Alain would rather keep his 3 CN farther from a good hitter.

Hum, ZZZZ, well, yes. -- Alain

We wonder how Sasha beat us (brilliant coaching?). -- Aujard and Alain

Welcome back, Blackstorm the Killer!

Be welcome in your home, DeGotti.

Welcome, Michael Eldritch!  Enjoy the fights.

Jan -- Aye I am the oldest team here with the fewest wins.  Kinda funny actually, but
I'll try to change that. -- DeGotti

I made a slight mistake in time with this team.  Celestial Knights actually started
Turn #1 of Arkers on August 27th 1985 which means I rolled them up over 20 years ago
not almost 20 years ago!  I can't wait to share the numbers with you all as they
graduate or die! -- DeGotti

Here's a little nostalgia for you all.  The first Duelmaster of Arkers was Bozo of
Bozo's Big Top on turn #3 Oct. 27th 1985.  His record was 3-0-2 16 points.  Back then
there wasn't Inits, Challenger Inits etc. you got 4 points for a win 2 extra points
for a kill and -3 for a loss. -- DeGotti

Pentarque -- We're back!  These are mail sent so HAL can't eat 'em.  Let's get im! --
Blackstorm

Michael Eldritch -- Welcome to Arkers.  May your stay be a long one. -- Dark Knight
Blackstorm

Max -- I here to stay, bring it on. -- Blackstorm

To Whom it Concerns -- Thank you Sensei Jan, for your kind words and sound advice.
Maximillian, my warriors have asked me to avoid you, but you look to be a challenge
worth considering.  Leeta, my thanks to you as well.  I will be requesting your
assistance in Aruak City for Steel and Silk. -- Eldritch, Penumbral Mists
P.S.  I have rebuilt Malborgia, and he holds no grudge to Death's Chosen.  Therefore
I forego the bloodfeud.

Extinguish -- Gotcha! -- Bgaz

Aeryn Sun -- I was looking for Lurid, you bloody spoiler!  Still, I think you saved
my life.  Well fought. -- Nythia

Sir Heelius -- We await you on the sands! -- Gladiators of Death's Chosen

Michael Eldritch -- Allow me to pay for the reforging. -- Azaziel, mgr. Death's
Chosen

Black Wind -- You big, maul bigger! -- Thog Skullreaver

Sir Gilmere -- How's the right arm?  Did your insurance cover it? -- Zaerena Nailo

Morngrym -- Thanks for the lesson, maybe a rematch later? -- Nymira Nailo

Penumbral Mists -- I thought he was someone else, challenge didn't go through, sorry.
-- Aramil Drallion

Memento Mori -- You resemble someone I once knew, coincidence?  I think not. --
Illmryn Nailo

All -- It appears that due to my "stealth rating," my team is not allowed challenge
or bloodfeud rights.  Don't worry Sir Heelius, we are legion. -- Azaziel, mgr.
Death's chosen

Pentarque -- Worry not, we're back to stay.  This cycle should be interesting. --
Blackstorm

Degotti -- Welcome back to Arkers. -- Blackstorm

Max -- No, you just think you will.  Prepare yourself for the worst. -- Dark Knight
Blackstorm

Michael Eldritch -- This form of challenging may be new, it develops your "honor"
skills. -- D.K Blackstorm

Ugly Kid Joe -- Ha ha ha, call that fighting!  Well I am at 8FE in case you need an
excuse. -- Outlaw

V. Balt -- Sorry buddy, I almost got carried away.  Great comeback, though I don't
think you had a choice. -- Nytemair

Shade of Decimate -- Rest easy.  I bet your KD was 10, wasn't it?  Mine was 6 as
usual. -- Yor Dethkall

Thog Skullreaver -- You have got to be kidding!!  I've never seen anything take that
much damage and keep going, other than scum.  Hard fought! -- Blackwind

Whu!! champion class.  Let's see if they can handle the NYTEMAIR!!!!! -- Nytemair

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.
