                             Notes from the arena champ.

Ahhh the knockdown, one of my favorite strategies.  Ingold, it wasn't meant to be for
you that turn.  Tripwire decided I should move on to ADM instead of fighting in the
challenger tournament and I should represent this city in the ADM tournament in July.
Wish me luck.  I will throw my challenges to the top two worthy warriors, Norle Parth
and Mouse Davis.  Good luck to you both.

Ice Fox, Of Wolf and Men 4, Iron Council

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KALTOS will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as THE MIDDLE WAY 5 is pushed out of top team by I HEART BALLS, who came from 2nd 
with a 3-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, GLORIA IMBRO fought HOFFA and gained 18 
points and contributed to THE MIDDLE WAY 5's 2-2-0.  ALI has lost to FERGUS HILL, 
falling 5 points, while helping make SPORTS GREATS a 1-4-0 turn.  Defending his title 
for another turn, ICE FOX kept THE MIDDLE WAY 5's warrior, NORLE PARTH, from claiming 
the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under 
the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the THE MIDDLE WAY 5 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on KALTOS, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding THE MIDDLE WAY 5 more than any other team we find SPORTS GREATS.  
KALTOS, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged 
warrior this turn was I HEART BALLS' warrior IAN.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, J. NICKLAUS from SPORTS GREATS 
challenged up 21 points to fight JILES from the I HEART BALLS stable.  J. NICKLAUS 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was defeated by JILES and ended up with 
27 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Mouse Davis -- Oh, yes?  I don't believe that.  You don't look like a mouse.  The
Commission doesn't think you look like a mouse.  So if you ask ME, you are NOT a
mouse. -- Gloria Imbro, who likes things set out clearly
P.S.  But you teach very well, and I thank you.

Samantha Fox -- You...you egg-eating fox!  I could have gone all day without that
happening and been just FINE about it. -- ghost of Chester Egg

The Greek Cat -- This place is just FULL of animals today!  I feel as though I should
have stayed home. -- Fergus Hill
P.S.  I especially felt that when you started hitting me.

Ice Fox -- (mournfully)  I was all excited, because I thought I'd be fighting a cool,
beautiful woman.  And then it was you.  Darn. -- Ingold Kerr

Hoffa -- I hate losing to a hoffa, and so of course I did my best, straining every
sinew sort of deal, and didn't lose. -- Norle Parth

Lord Protector Ice Fox -- Congratulations.  Enjoy your trip to the Isle of the Eye,
and don't let the door hit you on the way out. -- Arenamaster Troktai
P.S.  No, really, congratulations.  I wish you well, and so does the staff.

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.
