                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Coming up with 
a solid 4-1-0 outing, STARBASE 5 has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was TREE SHADOW, who dropped 16 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with REVANENT.  What does the Duelmaster and 
Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the most challenged apes in human 
history!  Heyheyhey!  Drawing on all of his experience as a 18-14-0 warrior, SLAYVER 
went for the Duelmastership against CHARISMATIC this week.  Well, everybody's pal 
CHARISMATIC moved his record to 34-25-0 by defeating SLAYVER in the Duelmaster's 
Title Bout and gaining 7 recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 
gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that MEAT MARKET was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of MEAT MARKET's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  MEAT 
MARKET + Weapons That go Boom = DARK CREATION + Avoid City.  Challenging down 16 
points was HOMUNCULUS.  Pretty soon he'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  
The only way to clean up' pins.  Here is a definition of happiness:  DEGALONIAN RUK 
subdued HOMUNCULUS to go from 4 to 21 recognition points.  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, INDEMOS went after PATTERSON PINE, who was higher by 20 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, INDEMOS bested PATTERSON PINE.  STRADA of STARBASE 5 had 
better have a good reason for challenging down 11 points in a challenge which he won. 
I thought STRADA showed great skill and promise when he overcame WHIRLAWAY.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  DIE AGAIN defied all odds and 
slew SHEWISH GIANT in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as 
SHEWISH GIANT's meat is notoriously tough.  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the MALCORN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you 
can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one 
already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Charismatic -- Ooh, another close one.  I'll give someone else a shot at you. --
Strada

Whirlaway -- Don't be discouraged.  You're a great fighter!  It really isn't what it
seems...ok, it IS what it seems.  I just need one more fight and we'll leave you be.
-- Forever and Strada

Patterson Pine -- Whoa!  You big oak, you!  Watch where you're swinging that stick of
yours!  You've got some talent there, haven't you?  I want another shot with you, so
if you don't mind, let's have another go. -- Indemos

The Grinch -- Jolly good show!  You 'bout had me eh?!  Lucky fer me I gots in one
really fine poke.  Don't you go thinking you had me and all, cause it 'twas luck, and
nothin' more.  Sun and bugs and stuff was flyin 'round my face I couldn't see much.
I had to go into like a zenlike mode and whoop up on you, you hear me.  I had me a
moment.  A realization if you will.  It will happen again, you just sit tight and
watch.  You'll see, I can do it on command.  Ok, I seez my ramblin' went on a bit
much, so let's stop the chatter and start the batter. -- Southern Tiger

Homunculus -- Boy this don't look good, does it.  If only the fans knew that I was
really challenging you then maybe you wouldn't get so many tomatoes thrown at you for
winning huh?  Funny stuff though, that tomato throwin and stuff, heh, heh.  I like it
anyway.  Don't bother me none, loser.  I would look in the near future for a death
match on request...if you ain't skeered, how bout next time we meet? -- Dega

Lotruaxe -- I can take your name apart into syllables and make a meaning from that,
but is it the real one?  Probably not.  What do YOU see as the true inwardness of
your name? -- Jessalin
P.S.  I was not going for the kill.  If you hadn't ducked into that last blow, the
subject would never have come up!

Bartholomew -- Wow, that was really strange, I've never met anyone as boring as I am
before.  I bet we even bored the arenamaster! -- Hob L. D'Hoy
P.S.  I think he's kinda cute when he's hopping mad, but I suppose you don't see it
quite the same, being a guy.  Oh, well.

Indemos -- No indemnity today, I see.  This works for me.  Thanks for the skills, but
seriously, how did you lose?  The advantages were all yours. -- Patterson Pine

The Userous Merchant has a lot to answer for!  Do you know, he tried to CHARGE me for
the skills, as though I hadn't put my life on the line to learn them?  What a money-
grubber. -- Tree Shadow the indignant and victorious

Green Eggs and Ham -- Probably spoiled.  I guess the arenamaster won't let you go to
the Dark Arena because you might poison someone there. -- Periwinkle

Yertle the Turtle -- It amuses you to mock me?  Remember, if you can, that we dwarves
have very long memories, and I will not always be a Beggar. -- Korbold

Tree Shadow -- You are pleased to make a mockery of my rights, but I will not forget.
-- Arzim naZildah of Zuwayza
P.S.  It is right that an unbeliever such as yourself offer coin to we who have the
true belief, in order that we may petition Kjarran in your name.  This is not Usery.

Varekai -- Keep trying, youngster, and you'll get the hang of it. -- Alecksim,
Veteran Mercenary
P.S.  Ignore that note that says I'm a dwarf, which anyone but the Commission could
see is untrue.  Just because I've got a beard....

Slayver -- You should be currying favor with the Chardinee Society, not angering us.
-- M. Finnian Chardinee

Slayver -- If you can defeat a Chardinee, you should do so.  Only by discovering our
weaknesses and correcting them shall we become stronger. -- M. Holsinster Chardinee,
Chapter Captain

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.
