                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I was very pleased to see you, Sailor Venus, because title-defense against a
standby would have been a disgrace to this fine city.  Of course, I couldn't let you
WIN, you're much too young for this responsibility, but still, I credit you with
having made a decent effort.

                                    Un-Seamstress

P.S.  Where do you sail, if you live in a forest?

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
CALEAM brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, SHERWOOD FOREST, since 
WARCKERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see CLEMMIE win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, CLEMMIE beat BLOOD MOON and BLOOD MOON lost 22 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as SAILOR VENUS takes the Title 
and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good 
mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
CALEAM?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for CALEAM's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of CALEAM.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

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.
