     Hello everybody. This is Country, manager of Team Country.  We are from the
Village Hidden in the Leaves.  And it is time for us to bring honor and respect to
our village.  Let me introduce my friends.
     First, there's Amidamaru, a former warrior for hire and the old man of the
group.  Next, there's Kakashi the level-headed trainer of Sasuke and Naruto, the two
talented youngsters.  And finally there's me, Country, the manager and leader of our
group.
     We look forward to meeting you all in battle.
     Fight with honor and die with glory.

                                                            Country

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out SOLVEN to see 
what's new.  MVP award for 365 GTB4?  HOT WHEELS' proud of him after beating FRIST 
and getting 24 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  FRIST got smashed by 365 
GTB4, and lost 19 points!  Like, DONNETTA must be pretty gutsy!  She challenged the 
Duelmaster from JUST CHILLIN.  Does this gal have a death wish or what!  Don't you 
think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think UP should let DONNETTA be Duelmaster 
for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said SOLVEN's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  JUST CHILLIN was the most avoided 
team.  Is a 177-160-16 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS?  JUST CHILLIN, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get 
them to accept an invitation!  Like, is OH WELL popular, or what?  He was challenged 
the most in all of SOLVEN!  He's got a 14-18-1, is that good?  Some fights are really 
unfair.  How do you think FROZEN FANNY feels about being challenged by GRANDPA RAT, 
25 points above her?  I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in SOLVEN.  GRANDPA 
RAT got 5 points after beating FROZEN FANNY, 25 points below him.  People were asking 
me did KAKASHI REALLY challenge SLUSH?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded 
good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but SLUSH wants me to write about 
it since he beat KAKASHI.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  It was kind of sad, seeing old CHAZ DUCKER stumbling around the arena, 
before KHALHUMS DWARF finished him off.  Oh well!  What if they had a fight and 
nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  SOLVEN is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

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.
