                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out KOLACT to see 
what's new.  Like, SIR AGLIO had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 
spot by SPRINGBORN!  Way to go SPRINGBORN!  The guys at SPRINGBORN like really pulled 
together to get a 2-3-0 this turn, moving up by 3.  What was the name of that team 
who got 3-0-0 this turn for a total 527-428-19 you ask?  (Sure)  QUBIT's their name, 
and fighting's their game!  MVP award for WALDO?  SPRINGBORN's proud of him after 
beating SIR COPHAGUS and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SARDINE 
SALLY's match with QUIP cost her a loss of 11 points!  And I was just getting used to 
the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome ESTRELLA.  Aren't THE MOONDOGS 
proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said KOLACT's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at Don Corleone's?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All KOLACT ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  KOLACT is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

RIP Mr Shrdlu -- A 4 con slasher.  Nough said. -- Still, the Distiller

Sir Cophagus -- Untamed berserker, hmm?  There's a squawker of a fight I won't be
squawking about any time soon. -- Waldo

Sir Cumference -- The iceberg got tipped.  I hope everyone saw, and took notes. --
Wanda

Sir Ender -- Hear tell you're moving on.  I'd like to make this sweet and short...
but not too short. <grin> -- Sadie

Quip -- The glory of battle, and the glory of victory.  The glory of the crowd
chanting "Sar-dine Sar-dine Sar-dine." -- Sardine Sally

Sir Broke Stroker -- Word is you've got a boat to catch, too.  A-lo-HA! -- Sadie

Quo Vadis -- I guess that's the last time we see you, right?  Gosh, end of an era or
something. -- Actaon

Quasimodo -- Straighten up, dammit.  You'd do better if you didn't keep hunching over
like that.  Wouldn't you?  Couldn't we get the Infirmarian to do a little corrective
work on your spine? -- Estrella

Oh, the Fratsfa Slave.  Somebody thinks I'm not up for much, don't they? -- Cynica

And the Fratsfa Slave again!  And NO, Cynica did NOT "wear him out first."  He was
just as good as he ever was. -- Callisto

Mr. Shrdlu, DEAD?  He couldn't bear the death of Moonday, I suppose, and followed him
into the darkness.  How sad.  Beautiful but tragic. -- Estrella

Gods, the injustice, that I should have to fight twice in one day! -- a put-upon
Fratsfa Slave

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.
