                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of BONSUR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS.  But how many friends do you have now?  See how the 
Duelmaster Bloodfeuded IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS' PESCHISOLIDO?  That sort of initiative 
is how he got where he is now.  Try as it might, PESCHISOLIDO wasn't good enough at 
persuading PINK NOSE to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, WASTELAND II!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at IMPORTED 
FOOTBALLERS ain't reelin'!  WASTELAND II's mad!  What do people see in BEACH BETTY?  
Hers 8-8-0?  BEACH BABES ain't talkin', but she's got 34 points.  Fighting is a 
better craft than farming, LAGUNA LIL, but you have to pay your dues.  Being 
challenged by WOOD CHUCK, 24 points above you, is dues.  WOOD CHUCK bested LAGUNA 
LIL.  I bet WOOD CHUCK could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, BEACH BABES knows who to 
set their sights on.  BEACH BETTY didn't quite know what to make of a challenge she 
received from TOTAL DISASTER 1.0 of WASTELAND II, who is 20 points below her.  TOTAL 
DISASTER 1.0 perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it defeated BEACH BETTY and 
ended up with 55 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Master Roshi -- Stick to training students instead of fighting.  Much better career
move for you. -- Balor

Tonya -- My my, such a big girl you are! -- Marlith

All -- Balor is done and ready for the Apprentice tournament.  I will probably hold
him out for the Face to Face this summer.  Also welcome a new Devil, Glenugon.  He
will only be fighting once and he will be ready as well.

Wood Chuck -- Oh, yeah, I heard that one, the one about "how much wood can a wood
chuck chuck."  I did NOT need you reciting it to me while throwing chunks of wood at
me!  That was a work of supererogation. -- Laguna Lil
P.S.  Gods, but you're rude!

Total Disaster 1.0 -- Obviously, my disaster rather than yours.  But at least it was
only a One Level disaster.  I saw a person once that had a Five Level disaster.
Naturally she died, but not fast enough, you know?  I'd like to avoid that. -- Sandy
Shore

Pink Nose -- Naturally.  That's what happens when you don't make proper use of an
umbrella.  Or possibly a hat, but umbrellas are better.  Not that I'd ever give YOU
one of mine!  You wouldn't appreciate it, anyway.  So just go ahead and have a
sunburned nose.  Ha! -- Umbrella Man

A Captured Pirate.  Pathetic.  I fear that the standard in Captured Pirates is
declining of late years.  The breeding pool is getting yucky.  We need to change the
filters, or things will just get Worse. -- Salton Seahorse
P.S.  Why were this Captured Pirate's eyes glowing red?  And the fangs, what's the
deal with the fangs?  Mutations in the unclean gene pool, or demonic intervention?
The fact that his number is 666 can't MEAN anything, can it?

The Ambitious Guard showed unusual intelligence in accepting my suggestion that he

surrender, and I only had to hit him one more time to make the point. -- Beach Betty
P.S.  We should let him off fighting in the arena.  He's probably realized by now
(finally!) that his true metier is making ladies's hats.

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.
