     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  ERRATA had cause to celebrate, after PALADIN 
got 20 points by beating RODNEY.  Well, Duelmaster ROSIE Dark Arena Challenged DARK 
ARENA's KOBOLD ENFORCER.  Is a 5-0-0 good enough?  ROSIE successfully staved off a 
grab for the roses by KOBOLD ENFORCER of DARK ARENA.  Does JHANS have no one talented 
enough to dethrone her?  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls 
and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  KOBOLD 
ENFORCER in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for ROSIE of BABES.  Maybe that certain 
serving girl(?) at Lucas Lounge will be!  Hey VOW TO DESTROY!  Is there some deep 
dark, unmentionable secret as to why DETRALOR has been sent to the Dark Arena?   
4-1-2 isn't so shabby!  You've heard about RODNEY of THE CLOWNS.  Death plays no 
favorites, and neither do I.  What was a 8-6-2 doing on the fields in the first 
place?  I hear PAULA of BABES tired of the battles and was thinking of becoming a 
priest.  OBSIDIAN of VOW TO DESTROY saved her the effort of getting references.  Ask 
not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHANS is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
JHANS?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

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.
