                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of MALCORN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain 
in MALCORN, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top 
team--STARBASE 5.  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  
Cause for celebration, according to DR. SEUSS.  DR. SEUSS had cause to celebrate, 
after THE GRINCH got 20 points by beating TREE SHADOW.  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 13 points to BARTHOLOMEW.  
(Discrete enough, DIE AGAIN?) CHARISMATIC found out being MALCORN's Duelmaster isn't 
all nuts and berries, receiving 4 challenges!  The arena was more crowded than usual 
this time, as SLAYVER faced MALCORN's Duelmaster.  CHARISMATIC successfully staved 
off a grab for the roses by SLAYVER of DARK CREATION.  Does MALCORN have no one 
talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in MALCORN is taking speech 
lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in BLOODSWORN are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The 
warriors of BLOODSWORN found their efforts at combat frustrated as DARK CREATION 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  YERTLE THE TURTLE challenged 
PERIWINKLE!  Who says DR. SEUSS are just a bunch of wimps!  YERTLE THE TURTLE of DR. 
SEUSS kept its wits as it was beat by PERIWINKLE.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in MALCORN would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for MALCORN?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Indemos -- You know, I thought it was just the blow to my head last week that made me
see double when I fought you.  Or was beaten up by you, to be more exact.  But now I
see that you were employing "double Indemos" against me, which hurts!  Don't do that
again. -- Patterson (fallen-)Pine

Varekai -- It's all well and good to be a dark creation, but sometimes it isn't
ENOUGH, you know? -- Jessalin
P.S.  MEN may like women with dark auras, but other women are more...particular.

Revanent -- Ick, all that blood.  Is it because you're half an elf?  I've heard that
elves are strange.  And I just can't, I really CANNOT see that bloody handprints all
over your armor is a Good Thing. -- Tree Shadow
P.S.  Yes, okay, you won.  So what?  The arena isn't your whole life, is it?

Fierce Tiger -- Did somebody already ask, or do I get to be the FIRST to inquire,
"Why aren't you an Arena Feline?"  This is confusing, and I don't do my best work
when I'm confused. -- Periwinkle
P.S.  Although I seem to have done well enough.

Somnambulant -- Oops, I shouldn't have let you lull me to sleep like that.  At least,
not DURING the fight.  Next time, coffee before the fight. -- Hob L. D'Hoy

Arzim naZildah of Zuwayza, Userous Merchant -- I feel this urge to mug you in an
alley, so watch out! -- Tree Shadow

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.
