                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JHELUM?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see CHALLON win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, EMILLE beat 
EPIMONIDAS and EPIMONIDAS lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as SERILIA takes the Title and last week's bar tab 
from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how 
else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Scandalf -- You should be ashamed of yourself!  The way you carry on is truly a
scandalf and a half! -- Howard
P.S.  You could at least have taught me more skills.

Gimlet -- Aaaaah!  Your eyes, your gimlet eyes!  I had to wipe them off your face or
something, they were so...so strange. -- Jimmy Custer
P.S.  If you want to go after the insurance agent, I'll hold your coat.

Aragant -- I don't know what YOU have to feel so puffed-up about. -- Hannibal

Celeborn -- Better stick to the trees, eh? -- Epimonidas
P.S.  Why aren't you listed as an elf?

Galadriel -- Madam, this is obviously not your venue.  I strongly recommend almost
anything else. -- Challon

Well, we seem to have dealt with rings, one way or another, all this cycle.  We
wouldn't mind having a ring or two ourselves!  And where is everybody else? -- Nick
and Dogs of War

Aragant -- But I make a mean gyros. -- Epimonidas

Bore-O-Me -- Thank you, even though I hate the taste of that stuff.  But how could I
expect to stay alive if I kept going past one minute? -- Howard

Elfwine -- Ah, good to have a name. -- Nick

All -- I've seen what's on the forum.  So I'm prey, am I, Max.  You and all your
devious buddies will become my prey, even those I thought okay.  I don't have to
explain anything I do, much like yourselves so bring it on.  Feel free to come over
to 31 for a thrashing.  Oh, by the way, I am also in a new alliance.  They tend to
share my sentiments about the VC.  If they follow me or not, we will see; I'm not at
liberty to talk for them.  The VC may be on their last stand!!!! -- Blackstorm

6 May 2006
The 2006 Mordanti Alliance Olympics are off to a grand start!  With seventeen teams
declared, running under eight different flags (not to mention six additional non-
Olympic teams present), it is looking to be as tough as any previous Olympiad, if not
more!  Olympians petitioned the Commission to make an allowance for late entries, and
the Commission agreed, and will allow new entrants to partake, as long as they are
active by Round 3 (T546, due May 29th).  So if you wish to enter, please email your
intentions to amicitia@gwi.net with team name, manager name, and affiliation
(alliance name or independent), or show up in Mordant (DM-1) on, or before, May 29th
and place your declarations in the newsletter!
