                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRANSEL games.  Former top team THE LADY'S LIST was 
unseated this week as WINGED LEGION moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-3-0 record for the round.  AGNAR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested SATCHEL and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, AGNAR put down SATCHEL, causing him to lose 
5 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend 
the throne, HOMOCULOUS has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to 
the grasp of the usurper.  All hail HORNED ONE, Duelmaster of TRANSEL!  Heed this!  A 
seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall 
perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
JUSTIN.  Watch your back!  HORNED ONE must really be harboring a grudge against the 
THE LADY'S LIST guild!  Merciless, 25 challenged down MIKEL points this week to duel 
with he.  All the city knows the duel went in favor of HORNED ONE.  I shall not fail 
to spread the word in other cities of this "mighty" victory.  I can not but mention 
with disdain the name of HOBBLED who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 
8 points below in the rankings.  I thought HOBBLED showed great skill and promise 
when he won victory over JUSTIN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I 
have seen men cut down in their prime.  This week THE LADY'S LIST must mourn the loss 
of 11-7-0 JAKOB to DARK PANTHEON.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TRANSEL.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

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.
