      Ah, the pleasures of really dark chocolate.  Gotta love it.

P.S.  If this is sin, I'll take it.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZORPUNT will ever be the same.  And let's see, IRMEAN fought AMBITIOUS GUARD 
and gained 9 points and contributed to MONEY PIT's 3-2-0.  ABSORB ALL has lost to 
DANGEROUS CRIMINAL, falling 5 points, while helping make MONEY PIT a 3-2-0 turn.  And 
not without some honor, ULTIMATE SIN now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of 
ZORPUNT.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Welcome Wench until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the KRILL 
CAVALRY stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZORPUNT, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided KRILL CAVALRY stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was MONEY PIT.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, ZORPUNT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZORPUNT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

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.
