                             Notes from the arena champ.

I consider it an act of true philanthropy for me to give Shamahamadi his first
regular-arena loss.  Every gladiator should have one.  It comes under the heading of
"dues."

Oh, heck, I just saw at the end that I killed him.  That was not my intention.  He
added a certain something...a warm body, at the least, to our arena.

                                      True Blue

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUKAL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, PHILANTHROPISTS II, since 
BLUE MOON took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see BLUE BLOTTO win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, ZULOR beat MAINE COON and MAINE COON lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as CAT-FU takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood 
today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, ZUKAL? 
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZUKAL's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in ZUKAL to get a drink than The Blue Boar Inn! 
Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  
Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Dalton -- Seems to me that *I* was the one being philanthropic there.  You got the
win, you got the five skills, and all I got was cuts and bruises.  Is this fair? --
Zulor

The Userous Merchant is about as frightening as any other bogey used to scare
children.  Easy for an adult to deal with. -- Blue Shrew

Larry Lion -- Well, pardon me all to pieces for stepping on you, but I didn't see you
down there.  You need to train your SZ. -- Blue Blotto

This Dangerous Criminal should be abolished!  Or sent to work in the galleys, yeah,
chained to an oar! -- Ultorino

Blue Shrew -- You shouldn't have done that.  I have...friends who will know how to
deal with a vicious woman. -- Mackobin, a Merchant of this city, falsely accused of
Usery
P.S.  Or at least, no more usery than anyone else uses.

Ultorino -- You're a wimp.  You wouldn't last a minute on the streets. -- Horlinse, a
Dangerous Man, and you'd better believe it
P.S.  "Criminal" is just a question of definition, and it isn't MY definition.

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.
