                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt JHELUM will ever be the same.  The F BALLS guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, EPIMONIDAS fought GIMLET and gained 18 points and contributed 
to DOGS OF WAR's 2-3-0.  JIMMY CUSTER has lost to BORE-O-ME, falling 9 points, while 
helping make DOGS OF WAR a 2-3-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between 
SHEWISH GIANT and our Duelmaster ALL LICKERED UP, making a Dark Arena Challenge.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ALL LICKERED UP remains JHELUM's 
top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the DOGS OF WAR stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on JHELUM, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided DOGS OF WAR stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was F BALLS.  Anyone 
surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was F BALLS' warrior FORK BALL.  
More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  ALL LICKERED UP must have surprised 
ARENA FELINES this turn, after they sent him to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena 
couldn't hold him!  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to 
cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in JHELUM, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JHELUM again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Fly Ball -- Aha!  The fly-paper shield WORKS.  I must remember this for future use.
Hmm, maybe I could even sell them.  Not make them myself, of course, much too much
work, but I could license a shield-maker and an alchemist, maybe autograph some for
an extra fee....  Hmm.  This will bear thinking about, indeed yes! -- Howard

Catnipit -- My manager tells me that the next warrior enrolled on this team (barring
forgetfulness) will be named Dognabit.  And it's your fault! -- Epimonidas

Decapitator -- Not to me, no way!  I like my capit right where it is. -- Jimmy Custer
P.S.  Not even my hair will you get.

Aragant -- Not my favorite kind of fight, I'm the dynamic sort.  Otherwise, of
course, I wouldn't have gone to all that trouble to climb over the mountains, not
even for the pleasure of seeing what was on the other side. -- Hannibal

Woman Scorned -- I've no doubt you were, fair lady, but not by ME.  I would never do
so tasteless and tactless a thing! -- Challon

Cat Protector All Lickered Up -- GET OFF THAT TABLE, YOU HAIRBALL! -- Arenamaster

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.
