                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out RIZTAB to see 
what's new.  Uncool, HOUNDS OF HELL.  I mean 0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed 
to fight?  I say use 'em for training practice!  HIGH JINKS like really fought hard 
to move up to 3rd from 7th.  Way to go!  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, 
CULTS-R-US!  'Cause they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 2nd!  MVP award for HAWKEYE?  
MARVEL HEROES' proud of him after beating SUGAR JANE and getting 15 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  WACKY WACO WONK got smashed by CRANKCASE, and lost 11 
points!  Was that a tear I saw in THALES' eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And 
wasn't FUZZY BUTT fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get 
nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  MARVEL HEROES 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 246-204-11 record really that scary?  Is there some 
deep dark secret why CULTS-R-US' been avoiding MARVEL HEROES so much?  Or is it just 
that they're too scared?  Like, is TALA GOG popular, or what?  She was challenged the 
most in all of RIZTAB!  She's got a 15-33-0, is that good?  For sure, I was holding 
my breath when I found out FLY WHEEL challenged LOSING IS FUN.  After all, haven't 
SP@RE P@RTS and WHO DA MAN? had a long standing duel in RIZTAB?  It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but LOSING IS FUN wants me to write about it since 
she defeated FLY WHEEL.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Yoda Man -- Nice fight...no, not really, but thanks for the learns...no, not really.
-- Jack of Hearts

Tala Gog -- Hope that limp isn't permanent. -- Hawkeye

Draco Magnus -- Will you define your version of "accomplished warriors"?  All I see
is mediocrity, at best. -- Dr. Strange

Hale Bopper -- We'll miss those easy wins.  R.I.P. -- Marvel Heroes

Alourshin -- It's times like these I wish I'd listened to what my father said. --
Hang-Ten Harry
P.S.  What'd ya mean 'what did he say?'  I don't know, I didn't listen.

Trolley Boom -- Clang clang clang went the bell.  I though clang clang clang meant
the ambulance was coming.  Ha! -- Krankykarl

Silver-Surfer -- That Plan B plan was plenty ugly.  But it don't hold a candle to
plan A. -- Ugly Eddie

Hawkeye -- Shame on you, taking that eye from a poor hawk!  How is he going to gage
the distance to the ground when he goes after a rabbit?  You've probably doomed some
poor hawk to a cataclysmic landing. -- Tala Gog
P.S.  The use of bows in the arena is SUPPOSED to be prohibited, isn't it?

Comrade Kook -- Strange, very strange.  Properly speaking, cult members are supposed
to be LOSERS.  What happened? -- Autumn Leaves

Hang-Ten Harry -- If there were ten of you, we'd HAVE to start hanging you.  That'd
be insupportable. -- Alourshin

Sister X -- I just hope that your brand of cult doesn't catch on with the arena
standbys.  Imagine if THEY got your winning ways?  Horrible to contemplate, eh? --
Tillerita

Fuzzy Butt -- (sneezes five times without pause) -- Sugar Jane

Hang-Ten Harry -- I'll "backup morningstar" YOU, bub!  Wait'll you see my backup
maul! -- Tala Gog

Ed. -- There is that. -- Alourshin
P.S.  Unfortunately.

     One of the reasons a goldfish sometimes seems like it'd be a bargain. -- Ed.

Hale Bopper -- Er.  Yes.  Of course.  Any time. -- Spymaster Torric

Seth -- YOU COWARD!  You kill my student and then hide in your stable?  Come, face
the music; I won't hurt you...bad.... -- Lilliana

Flywheel -- It seems that you are mistaken about a great many things.  First, I am an
arachnid, not an insect.  Second, the constitution is natural, never added points to
it.  Third, this isn't "heavy" armor.  Check Lilliana's fights out some time.  That
Orc looks like a knight. -- The Scorpion

Lug Nut -- You seem like a good fellow.  I hope I didn't poke too many holes in ya.
-- The Scorpion

Hurricane -- Do you feel a breeze? -- Kragor the Mad

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.
