                             Notes from the arena champ.

      The Veteran Mercenary is a sad opponent for the title.  And the worst thing I
can say about him is that he's probably doing his best.

                                         Chock

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KATI-TEI will ever be the same.  On their very first turn, FALL FROM GRACE 
had a 4-1-0, and with this kind of luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to 
KATI-TEI.  And let's see, DEMON fought TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and gained 20 points and 
contributed to FALL FROM GRACE's 4-1-0.  FRENCH has lost to SOLDIER 1, falling 6 
points, while helping make LANGUAGE OF LOVE a 1-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for 
another turn, CHOCK kept KATI-TEI's warrior, VIRGINAL CONCUBINE, from claiming the 
throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
The Swinging Aardvark uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  WANDERERS has cause to stand tall, as 
they were KATI-TEI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided WANDERERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
MEDAL OF HONOR 26.  Anyone surprised?   
     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 KATI-TEI 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.  Always good to rest in KATI-TEI, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in KATI-TEI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

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,

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.
