                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for FORK BALL, who flew up 10 points in the rankings after mashing LEGALASS 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was DECAPITATOR, who dropped 8 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout 
with JIMMY CUSTER.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles 
was THE SHALLOWSHIP's SCANDALF, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by ALL 
LICKERED UP.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JHELUM arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad FORCE OF FIVE?  Big bad FORCE OF FIVE.  
Big bad FORCE OF FIVE.  JHELUM's afraid of the big bad FORCE OF FIVE.  Tra la la la 
la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause F BALLS beats 
feet every time FORCE OF FIVE smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this FORK 
BALL you ask, with 86 points and a 9-1-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the JHELUM giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time 
I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Aragant, aragant...that's a kind of architectural feature, right?  Thing that runs
along the edge of the roof and is full of holes and curlicues.  What the unwashed
call "gingerbread," I believe.  Pretty if you like that kind of thing, but useless
otherwise, right?  Fitting name. -- Jimmy Custer, practicing tact (which is hitting
people with a tact hammer, right?)

Fast Ball -- Ah, but speed is not enough.  It is not enough to move first, you must
land those blows, or you'll NEVER get across the Alps. -- Hannibal
P.S.  Very barrier-like, the Alps.  But a barrier won't stop a really determined man.

Super Jacob -- (crossly)  I didn't even realize there was someone DOWN there and that
the fight had started until you cut off my knees.  Yell or something to let people
know you're around! -- Howard

Silk -- You're probably one of those beautiful women who goes around weakening people
with luxury and worthless pleasures, aren't you?  (wistfully)  Nobody ever seems to
do that to me. -- Epimonidas

Foot Ball -- Is it ALLOWED to kick people like that?  I was wholly surprised. --
Challon
P.S.  What IS this "goalpost" thing I'm hanging from?

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.
