                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SOLVEN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, KELLUMBO'S KIDS, since 
JUST CHILLIN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now let's all 
watch THE REPUBLICANS' heads swell from their 3-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big 
shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see JOHN 
ROBERTS win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CHAZ DUCKER beat 365 
GTB4 and 365 GTB4 lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, SOLVEN may be getting bland, as UP stays top dog in the city.  The 
Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From SOLVEN's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  THE REPUBLICANS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, FROZEN FANNY was this turn's most challenged warrior. 
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  Now look at this.  DONNETTA challenged down 18 
against JUST CHILLIN's OH WELL.  What a weasel!  Question now is, will SOLVEN accept 
this sort of tacky behavior?  DONNETTA beating OH WELL.  The insult, the....yech!  
And we have GRANDPA RAT in a challenge, going down 13 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!   
     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.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the SOLVEN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide

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.
