                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt XOCHITHLAN will ever be the same.  And let's see, OPARA PERSI fought RIRORNI 
HORSEMAN and gained 9 points and contributed to THE MIDDLE WAY's 2-3-0.  WENDAL XOKI 
has lost to EYE RAISE, falling 3 points, while helping make THE MIDDLE WAY a 2-3-0 
turn.  Defending its title for another turn, SKULK kept THE MIDDLE WAY's warrior, 
QUIA RAYNE, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Welcome Wench?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the OPHIDIAN 
ORDER stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on XOCHITHLAN, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding OPHIDIAN ORDER more than any other team we find CHEAP SHOTS. 
XOCHITHLAN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was THE MIDDLE WAY's warrior MORI NEB.  More fighters 
challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that XOCHITHLAN 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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

Smirk -- I shudder to imagine the mind of someone who could make a golem whose face
is "frozen" in that expression.  What a loathsome pit it must be! -- Quia Rayne

Skulk -- Go ahead, hide!  Sneak around in the shadows!  See if *I* care if you meet
up with some lurking assassin or Thing from the cisterns under the city! -- Belle Cor

Anaconda -- What a nasty serpent you are!  I'm glad you're not bigger.  The thought
of a snake with your nature and bigger is enough to make a brave man blanch, and, as
you see, I'm not a man at all! -- Opara Persi

The Captured Nomad is a golem?  This is very strange. -- Mori Neb
P.S.  There's probably a dark plot involved.

Python -- Fortunately, I had my Saint Pat's medal with me.  They tell me it's a
sovereign remedy against your kind, but I suspect that my strong right (and left) arm
and sharp, dangerous weapon were part of the efficacy.  Go and crawl no more. --
Wendal Xoki

Malobi, Rirorni Horsemen -- Eat dust, flea-biter. -- Wendal Xoki

Rirorni Jannisary -- You are an offense, and Mytori is an offense, against Shierah.
-- Mori Neb

Hulagei -- Er, not today, thanks. -- Belle Cor

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.

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
