                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly VEASTIAN games.  TIRNIELLIS caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested TAMARA RAHN and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TIRNIELLIS put down 
TAMARA RAHN, causing her to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
TIRRAJ made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
ETHON EL KEER.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this 
week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city VEASTIAN.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Tamara Rahn -- No, I can't do that.  Me, avoid a well-filled woman like you?  No, not
a chance. -- Konjor, trying not to leer too obviously

Ethon El Keer -- Something seems to have worked for you that time.  Congratulations.
-- Stiljanz
P.S.  But my mind is confused, I cannot, for the life of me, remember my special
secret fishing spot!  Did I happen to mention it in your presence?

Huh, a Khalhums Dwarf, a hairy little runt!  Pathetic.  Unworthy of me. -- Tirraj

Next time I return defective goods to the Userous Merchant, he will be polite.  Or
dead. -- Kuressa D'Gen

What the heck do I want with a Captured Orc?  They eat too much. -- Tirniellis

Donkey King -- I suppose you feel like a Big Man now that you've defeated me?  You're
a bully! -- (name withheld by request), wrongfully convicted of theft

Tirniellis -- What did *I* do?  I didn't even want to be here! -- Geroge Kolb,
Captured Orc
P.S.  Our chief will have something to say to people about this!  We were at peace!
No one had a right to go capturing innocent orcs off the streets!

Kuressa D'Gen -- I certainly hope you ARE. -- Tolbert Rose, honest merchant

Tirraj -- You're jealous because you can't grow a true beard, aren't you?  Those
little wisps you have are pathetic. -- Lagoldok of Khalhums and Murska

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,

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.
