                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DULLENS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, PERFECTION QUEST 13, since 
STYLE AND STRIFE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  STYLE AND 
STRIFE turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any 
better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see JOAN CRAWFORD BA win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, JOAN CRAWFORD BA beat PS-SHORT SPOKE and PS-SHORT SPOKE lost 20 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  STRIKE OUT challenged DULLENS' Duelmaster for a shot at the 
throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, DULLENS may be getting bland, as 
SUPERIOR TRICKS stays top dog in the city.  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, DULLENS?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
DULLENS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  ARENA FELINES II the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like CON ZAL CON 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  SL-SNOWKIRK was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was 
the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Now look at this.  PSYCHO KILLER challenged 
down 21 against DREAMERS' SLEEPY STRIKER.  What a weasel!  Question now is, will 
DULLENS accept this sort of tacky behavior?  PSYCHO KILLER beating SLEEPY STRIKER.  
The insult, the....yech!  Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, WALL OF FELINE was 
challenged by SIR DOUGLAS LUNGE, who was ranked 30 points below him.  And sure, SIR 
DOUGLAS LUNGE lost alright, but gained 6 recognition for his pains.  And pains they 
may indeed be!  And we have AIMED - FELINE in a challenge, going down 8 points for 
the fight.  Guess what?  I thought AIMED - FELINE showed great skill and promise when 
he defeated BAD AIM.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in DULLENS to get a drink than Arthur's Last 
Stand!  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

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.

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.
