     Well, what are you looking at, SOLVEN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BILBRAY win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, JOHN ROBERTS beat 
TUNDRA and TUNDRA lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, SOLVEN may be getting bland, as SMELLY stays top dog in the city.  
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  SOLVEN, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  JUST CHILLIN the most avoided team?  What 
insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like KELLUMBO'S KIDS avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, FROZEN FANNY was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  And we have GRANDPA RAT in a challenge, going down 9 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought GRANDPA RAT showed great skill and 
promise when he beat FROZEN FANNY.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And sending OLYMPIA SNOW to the Dark Arena was 
supposed to be one of your better ideas, THE REPUBLICANS?  Titanium shields and 
bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Kellumbo -- Doesn't seem like you should get to pick "two" of our warriors to go to
the Dark Arena, but S. Alito's death was unexpected.  A deal is a deal.  We can
always hope that the Senator from Maine will survive the Dark Arena. -- Judge

26 May 2006
     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
