                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for KALTOS.  Like, PARTY ANIMALS had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by PAPER MARIO!  Way to go PAPER MARIO!  
Uncool, PARTY ANIMALS.  I mean 0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I 
say use 'em for training practice!  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, 
MASSAGE PARLORS!  'Cause they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 3rd!  MVP award for HOT OIL 
MASSAGE?  MASSAGE PARLORS' proud of him after beating PERSISTENT BEGGAR and getting 
15 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  FERGUS HILL got smashed by SUSHIE, and 
lost 11 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  IAN stopped GLORIA IMBRO 
dead in hers tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  I HEART BALLS was the most avoided team.  Is a 25-6-0 record really 
that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why PAPER MARIO's been avoiding I HEART 
BALLS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is SUSHIE popular, or 
what?  She was challenged the most in all of KALTOS!  She's got a 5-1-0, is that 
good?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out J.  NICKLAUS challenged 
BUCK NAKED.  After all, haven't SPORTS GREATS and MASSAGE PARLORS had a long standing 
duel in KALTOS?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but BUCK NAKED wants me 
to write about it since he defeated J. NICKLAUS.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All KALTOS ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  KALTOS is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Oh, gee, Fergus.  Thank you; thank you!  You are too kind. -- Sushi

Shanno -- Gee; that was fun.  I would have thought you might have the style
advantage, but perhaps you were like a fish out of water? -- Sushi

Jeri Lough -- Spare the rod and spoil the star.  Or something like that? -- Star Rod

Overd -- There was nothing unbelievable about that!  Just look at my highly
aggressive, offensive name.  You were bombed! -- Bombette

Shucks, I guess Kaltos Duelmasters are just too lazy to write a column. -- Luigi (not
feeling he is getting his money's worth)

Ian -- You dear boy!  My greatest thanks for sparing me the burden of that title. --
Gloria Imbro

Buck Naked -- Did you know that you follow in the footsteps of the greatest...er,
that you follow in somebody's footsteps?  A warrior who graduated with the stage name
Buck Naked He.  You can imagine how that read in the fights! -- Fergus Hill

Star Rod -- Odd name.  But then, you're a golem. -- Jeri Lough

Bombette -- Unless that armor is deceptive, you're...well, all I can say is "hubbah,
hubbah!" -- Orvered Quill

It was kind (I think) of the Mordant Deserter to show up for my initial match.  I
guess. -- Elinde Goss

Twink -- Probably Dark Root.  There's a lot of that going around. -- Nick, the Middle
Way

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!

Amicitia Primoris (Lord Xiang, Dameon Darkheart, JGW, Seraphim)

26 May 2006
     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!
