                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out NIATOLI ISLAND 
to see what's new.  Too bad, BOOKSHELF, but DEATH PENALTY was just too good to be 
stopped.  MVP award for FIRERAGE?  DEATH PENALTY's proud of her after beating SECRET 
PREY and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  FOUR PAST MIDNIGHT got 
smashed by COMPULSION, and lost 16 points!  What a putz!  LADY KALDRA fights so hard 
to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said she was a 
genius...  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh 
well, welcome SCREWFACE.  Aren't PHILANTHROPISTS proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the 
wiseguy that said NIATOLI ISLAND's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Don't Drop 
Inn?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  LUROCIANS II was NIATOLI ISLAND's most avoided team.  
Is there some award for that?  I don't know what VEGGIES' been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from LUROCIANS II, that's fer sher.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  I hear VEGGIES sent CARROT TOP to the Dark 
Arena.  What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  
KILL ZONE returns from the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at his DEATH PENALTY 
teammates...  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from 
you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Valamond -- Cool, cause Adrenaline Rush was horrible, at least I didn't get the shaft
on that one.  Save your Bloodfeud.  Sniper is going to test his luck in the DA.  If
he wins, you will get your chance. -- Hollowshade

Four Past Midnight -- Ah, but I had a five! -- Rintirisse

Secret Prey -- Does that mean that if I go into "secret hunter" mode, I can take you?
I'll have to look into this. -- Korienellen

Lady Kaldra -- Life is hard.  I find a woman tall enough to see, and put a friendly
hand on her shoulder, and she...cuts it off!  I had plans for that hand. -- Thimbell

Lady Wu -- I was going to say that it seemed odd to see a woman with a beard, but
then I realized that you're merely a female impersonator.  What a shock! -- Irinkesta

30 June 2006
All -- I am looking for able bodied warriors, magic-wielding wizards, faith-healing
clerics, and quick-handed thieves to begin a quest requested by the Emperor of the
Southern Kingdom of Crailmia.  All interested parties can diplo me in arena 93 --
Noblish Island, c/o Will-O-Wisps (1422) or write to me at -- Robert Bennett, 317173,
4269 West M-80, Kincheloe, Mi 49784. -- the Lightbearer, mgr. Will-O-Wisps

BROTHER KNIGHTS OF THE DESOLATE EMPIRE -- Hail brothers where ever you are to be
found!  We are engaging in arena 31.  Let them feel our wrath.  Onward to glory!!! --

Soultaker -- Read your e-mail! -- Guardian

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.

               NEW TEAMS IN THE TEMPORARY TOURNAMENT ARENAS (DM 81/83)

Please note that all new teams created at the Face-to-Face were temporarily placed 
in a temporary Tournament Arena, DM 81 or DM 83.  If you requested that your team be 
placed in a specific arena, it has already transferred to that arena.  Any teams not 
transferred out of DM 81 and DM 83 by September 1st will be deleted.  If you have 
questions about any of your teams, please contact Customer Service. -- RSI
