                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in DULLENS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, STYLE AND STRIFE, but 
KIRKWOOD 1 was just too good to be stopped.  Uncool, STYLE OVER SUBSTANCE.  I mean 
2-3-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  CON ZAL CON like really fought hard to move up to 4th from 9th.  Way to 
go!  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 3 after going 5-0-0.  
Keep it up, KIRKWOOD 1!  MVP award for PS-SHORT SPOKE?  KIRKWOOD 1's proud of it 
after beating JOAN CRAWFORD BA and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  
BA-RNEY's match with BRASS BASH BOY cost him a loss of 16 points!  Like ARENA FELINES 
II's WALL OF FELINE is sweating since he got challenged by Duelmaster SUPERIOR 
TRICKS!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think SUPERIOR TRICKS 
should let WALL OF FELINE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I 
hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want 
photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  ARENA FELINES II was the most 
avoided team.  Is a 57-49-2 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors 
are CON ZAL CON?  ARENA FELINES II, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get 
them to accept an invitation!  Like, is ST-STUMP RUN popular, or what?  It was 
challenged the most in all of DULLENS!  It's got a 12-8-0, is that good?  Some fights 
are really unfair.  How do you think LU-LLABYE feels about being challenged by BASIC 
AZZWHUPIN, 21 points above him?  If BASIC AZZWHUPIN can't beat a warrior 21 points 
below itself, that it CHALLENGED, it oughtta be selling food in the stands!  See if I 
ever talk to SUPERIOR LOOPHOLE again!  PR-ISM was so low when It challenged it.  
Hhmph!  I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in DULLENS.  SUPERIOR LOOPHOLE got 
2 points after beating PR-ISM, 20 points below it.  AIMED - FELINE is being unfair.  
He's challenged down 25 against BAD AIM.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on. 
(I'd better shut up) BAD AIM is a real man!  He was challenged by AIMED - FELINE, 25 
points above, and BEAT him!  Dark Arena, anyone?  For sure, I was holding my breath 
when I found out ST-THE SMOOSHER challenged ST-STUMP RUN.  After all, haven't 
SUPERIOR FORCES ZC3 and KIRKWOOD 1 had a long standing duel in DULLENS?  It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but ST-STUMP RUN wants me to write about it since it 
beat ST-THE SMOOSHER.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All DULLENS ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  DULLENS is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

I would like to thank the Dullensites for their warm hospitality and the Gladiatorial
Commission, for re-opening the arena just for the contest. -- Visionist

Fellow Zalconions, from all of us in the IHoop guild.  We have enjoyed the
competition, till we meet again friends. -- Visionist

Soultaker -- Sorry PRism scared you so badly, forcing you into not allowing Carrie to
participate the last 8-10 weeks. <evil grin> -- Visionist

BROTHER KNIGHTS OF THE DESOLATE EMPIRE -- Hail brothers where ever you are to be
found!  We are engaging in arena 31.  Let them feel our wrath.  Onward to glory!!! --

Soultaker -- Read your e-mail! -- Guardian

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.
