                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  It was a tough 
week for SUPERIOR FORCES ZC, to drop 6 places in the rankings.  Coming up with a 
solid 2-0-0 outing, NIGHTHAWKS has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Don't these 
new hotshots make you sick (or, if they fought you, hurt)?  OUT OF THIS WORLD, on 
their very first turn, went 5-0-1.  Call it luck at the right time or bribes in the 
right hands, but the new team WS ARMS '05 scored a 3-0-1 record this week.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for FREDDY GARCIA, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after 
mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like 
a basher in the top ten was ARAM, who dropped 14 points after a disappointing (to say 
the least) bout with ZOMBIE-3.  It's a proud day for the NIGHTHAWKS stable, as their 
warrior, KAT, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 
10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad LITTLE BLUE FREAKS?  Big bad LITTLE BLUE FREAKS.  Big bad LITTLE BLUE 
FREAKS.  KYR'TERR's afraid of the big bad LITTLE BLUE FREAKS.  Tra la la la la!  For 
those of you who like math, try this one:  LITTLE BLUE FREAKS + Weapons That go Boom 
= NIGHTHAWKS + Avoid City.  And who is this THRAX you ask, with 64 points and a 8-4-2 
record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Well, it looks like CHIAD wasn't happy with 
last turn's rank, so she went for broke by challenging up 27 points.  No guts, no 
glory.  This week CHIAD 8-9-3 fought THRAX 8-4-2 and in losing gained 3 points.  I 
know several gladiators who could go for a few fights like that.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud 
choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

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.
