                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for BURLY REIVER, who flew up 19 points in 
the rankings after mashing RAGE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was DEMETREN, who dropped 9 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with BISIMWA.  Our battling duelmaster 
DAMNATION has managed to hold the title, fending off ROLAND's none too subtle 
advances.  Better luck next time, RILL'S GCSC2.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARVAT arena.  Did you 
hear that RILL'S GCSC2 was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of RILL'S GCSC2's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  RILL'S GCSC2 + Weapons That go Boom = DEVIL ADVOCATES + Avoid 
City.  And who is this LOGGERHEAD you ask, with 87 points and a 16-38-1 record.  Ooh, 
the tales I could tell!  Getting lots of flowers from sympathetic fans was HERON, who 
was successfully challenged by EVE ELWON who had a mere 23 points more than HERON.  
Definition of petty:  EVE ELWON bested HERON, a mismatch of 23 points.  DI A. BOLICAL 
of DEVIL ADVOCATES had better have a good reason for challenging down 13 points in a 
challenge which she lost.  I thought DI A. BOLICAL showed great skill and promise 
when she lost to SARLOW.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Congrats to PHIFDEN for revenging the death 
of his teammate (but more importantly, feeding RON WAY a bit of dirt).  Here's some 
advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the 
Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ARVAT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide 
Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Tripwire -- Sorry about Frost Giant.  I hate those infirmary kills.  I can honestly
say that I have never had a warrior achieve two kills via the infirmary, much less
two on consecutive turns.  That has to be some kind of freaky record. -- the Dark One

Rillion -- 5-0 turns are sweet!  I haven't had one here in so long, I have forgotten
what they are like! -- the Dark One

Greth -- Nice fight.  But Fury wants his title back! -- Damnation

Damnation -- Now, don't forget, I get twenty-five percent of your title bonus.  You
couldn't have done it without me! -- Loggerhead the indispensable
P.S.  Congratulations.

Phifden -- If I had one of those stern, tough, manly names, I'd feel badly about
losing to a phifden.  Fortunately, I do NOT have one of those muscular, high-test,
slash-em-bash-em names, so I can just say, oh, well. -- Gripple

Demetren -- It gives you an adrenaline rush when it's that close, doesn't it? --
Heron

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,

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.
