                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt JHANS will ever be the same.  And let's see, RIREMA fought ENEMY SABOTEUR and 
gained 12 points and contributed to KARNIVORZ's 2-0-1.  And not without some honor, 
SPEKTER now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of JHANS.  By the way, was that 
our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at Lucas Lounge?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  BABES has cause to stand tall, as they 
were JHANS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
guess who avoided BABES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was KARNIVORZ.  
Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  BABES has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you kill your fighter, 
DANIKA, who had a record of 2-0-0?' Is it really true that JHANS has more dishwashers 
per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Babes -- I am desperately avoiding you because I do NOT want the DM spot.  Hopefully
it will work and I can fight a stand-in.  If you could avoid me too it would be
great! -- Rirema

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.
