                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for KURBALD, who pummelled EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, to pocket 
20 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, SAMURAI was winsome, after 
beating GALBEI and seeing him lose 5 points.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to 
KHALUHUMS DWARF, BUT ANKH is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition 
points!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging 
dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in TRICORUS would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an 
overtaxed simile, I now bid TRICORUS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Black Lotus -- Ah, beauty and danger, the temptation!  But my momma didn't raise me
to take foolish risks with dangerous women.  At least, not if I could avoid it.  Take
the skills and run, girl. -- Galbei

Samurai -- I bet you'd be taller if you weren't bowlegged.  Have you considered
stretching exercises?  Knee replacements? -- Margalh

Shogun -- How can you be a ronin?  Isn't that close to a contradiction in terms?  I
mean, I suppose you MIGHT be if you cut loose from your emperor, but you wouldn't do
THAT, would you? -- Aillendei

Grape and Basher -- Don't mess with us. -- the Dark Arena of Tricorus

All -- I am looking for able bodied warriors, magic-wielding wizards, faith-healing
clerics, and quick-handed thieves to begin a quest requested by the Emperor of the
Southern Kingdom of Crailmia.  All interested parties can diplo me in arena 93 --
Noblish Island, c/o Will-O-Wisps (1422) or write to me at -- Robert Bennett, 317173,

Soultaker -- Read your e-mail! -- Guardian

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.
