                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
BONSUR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS, 
since WASTELAND II took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Gee, I'm 
impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, WASTELAND II, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
TOTAL DISASTER 1.0 win a fight and gain 10 points, terribly.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, BONSUR may be getting bland, as PINK NOSE stays top dog in the city.  
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  WASTELAND II, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
it looks like EAGER BEAVERS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, LAGUNA LIL was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  And we have WOOD 
CHUCK in a challenge, going down 10 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought 
WOOD CHUCK showed great skill and promise when he won victory over LAGUNA LIL.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of BONSUR.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

Limpy -- You know what they say about big weapons don't you?  Of course you don't.
:snicker: -- Marlith

Hydra -- Everyone knows a Hydra is no match for a Balor; be gone from my path. --
Balor

All -- I will be here preparing my demons for the Summer Tournament.  They tend to
get a bit vocal, but that is expected from demons. -- Tripwire

Cat-in-the-Hat -- And a friendly whap on the old chapeau for you! -- Laguna Lil

Solskjaer -- I think you chose those letters in your name at random.  Some kind of
letter grab-bag.  Yes?  And arranged them by shaking 'em up in a cup. -- Salton
Seahorse
P.S.  That list of skills you learned includes every single skill used in the fight
by either of us.  Gosh.

Turtleface -- You're so ugly, I had to hold my umbrella in front of my face in order
to block the sight, which made it hard to defend against the blows.  Sneaky. --
Umbrella Man

Inquisitor -- Bad cat!  Bad!  Leave that furniture ALONE.  Beach Betty
P.S.  And don't climb the curtains, either!

Tonya -- You've been cursed by your manager.  It's the "chaotic" thing.  A manager
who had your best interests at heart wouldn't have stuck you with a team name like
that.  Why?  Because the whole chaotic thing means never knowing or caring if you're
going to win or lose.  And since the OTHER managers (except mine, that's a hint,
Nick) want to win, you get stuck with the losing end too often.  It's the pits. --
Sandy Shore
P.S.  Thanks for the win.

It Protector Turtleface -- Our standing orders from Queen Gemra are (pause to read
off the card):  "Sit down.  Relax.  Do not expect lands.  Do you think I'm made of
lands?  As if!  Have a pleasant trip to the Isle."  And there you have it. --

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.
