                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, CLIFFHOME?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now let's all watch INQUISITION CLONES' 
heads swell from their 3-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big 
deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see FUZZY BUNNY SLIPPERS win a 
fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, FUZZY BUNNY SLIPPERS beat POULAN and 
POULAN lost 23 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, CLIFFHOME may be getting bland, as ZIPPO stays top dog in the city.  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, CLIFFHOME?   
     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 CLIFFHOME'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.   
     There's got to be a better place in CLIFFHOME to get a drink than The Choking 
Ogre!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
CLIFFHOME.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Zippo!  Splendid, you will make a fine Duel2Dude for Cliffhome.  True, you're
unlikely to write a column, but that is in keeping with the local tradition of recent
years, and at least you're not a cold fish.  Quite the hot little fire, in fact.  I
salute you. -- Ballou Ys

Average Joe -- We need more people in the arena, you know?  Because we just CAN'T
keep making the same old half-jokes to the same old people fortnight after fortnight.
It's boring, which is some kind of cardinal sin, as far as I can understand it.  And
I wouldn't want to commit a cardinal sin.  Too red.  Maybe a bluebird. -- Lomber Bos

Ah, the "pleasures" of fighting a standby.  This is a very slow way to accumulate
skills, and a dangerously fast way to rise in the ranks. -- Riquettie

There is NO WAY I will allow a Convicted Thief into my bathtub. -- Dasher

Morfindell -- Phbbt! -- Riquettie

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.
