                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Say good-bye to GAMES LIBRARY, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT stable.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for TERRY MULHOLLAND, who flew up 13 points in the rankings 
after mashing OTIS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Try as hard as the 
MISTRESS 4 XMAS stable might, they were unable to find their warrior (and 
ex-Duelmaster) BLACK WIDOW before this week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, 
BUD SMITH took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out 
of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.  
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the OSKSI arena.  Did you 
hear that FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may 
not be funny, but catch BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to 
be fairly deft at running from FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT.  Well just about everybody wants a 
piece of HEARTS, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  ETERNAL D.J. of FRAT 
PARTY BLOWOUT had better have a good reason for challenging down 12 points in a 
challenge which he won.  I thought ETERNAL D.J. showed great skill and promise when 
he won victory over YATZEE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in OSKSI have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Eternal D.J. -- On and on and on and on and...I thought I'd go crazy, all that on and
on chatter and "music."  That should count as a major weapon. -- Yatzee
P.S.  I wish the stewards had let me bring my lucky dice into the arena.  I'd've
thrown them at you and then pulled the cup over your head and smothered you.
P.P.S.  It's a big dice cup.
P.P.P.S.  Really, really big.
P.P.P.P.S.  Thanks for the skills.  That was almost worth it.

No Balcony? -- Of course not!  What are you, a Juliet in disguise? -- Domino Joe

Otis -- My dear boy, I could be sorrier, but not easily.  I think you are eating too
many bananas.  Or doing something with them, anyway. -- Hearts
P.S.  And if you must drink (shudder), do NOT follow that sweet Debby Tonte's advice.
It isn't the umbrella that counts, it's the fruit in the drink.  You eat the fruit
and throw the rest away.

Ambitious Guard?  Bah, where *I* come from that fool wouldn't be allowed to guard an
outhouse. -- Sharan Khor

We have a firm way of dealing with beggars. -- Tarhella Vhu
P.S.  Why should I be merciful?  He is the one who chose to be worthless.

Most Challenged?  Me?  And STILL no balcony?  Cheese. -- Domino Joe
P.S.  For choice, extra-sharp cheddar.

22 February 2006
The Olympics have arrived!

The Mordanti Olympics, having been gone for six years, have returned to the Mordanti
Alliance, sponsored by Amicitia Primoris.  Teams have competed against each other for
recognition and notoriety four times in the past.  It is far past time for the fifth
Mordanti Olympics to be held.  The Mordanti Olympics shall be held in the Mordant
arena (DM-1) from May 1st (T544) through Oct 30 (T557).  There will be a
'registration period' lasting until T543, where teams will be allowed to register by
activating in Mordant and declaring their participation in the personals.  Rules will
be posted in the Mordant arena (DM-1) newsletter no later than T543, but shall be
available online before then.  An announcement will be made as to where they will be
posted.  Prizes will be awarded to the winners.
