                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
VEASTIAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, THE FAMILY, since 
CLASSIC GAMES took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see JOUST win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, JOUST beat HYENA and HYENA lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as TIRRAJ takes the Title and last week's bar 
tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Dripping Blade, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From VEASTIAN's trash 
dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  CLASSIC GAMES, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was ANIMAL MAGNETISM.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, PACMAN was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can 
give a little credit to BENGAL of ANIMAL MAGNETISM for challenging up by 19 to 
KONJOR.  BENGAL won to get 51 points of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for VEASTIAN'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 VEASTIAN to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

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.
