                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZUKAL.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  ZUKAL watched 
with glee as THE MONGOLOIDS got knocked off top spot by ARENA FELINES!  What's with 
E. LECTER?  He actually beat ARENA FELINES' MAINE COON, and walked away with 18 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at LETTER BOMBS while they watched E. LECTER 
clobber MAINE COON.  He lost 15 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  KHALHUMS DWARF was reminded on the sands why PUSS is Duelmaster.  I suppose 
you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was ARENA FELINES.  The bums at SOLITAIRE couldn't face the 
challenges from ARENA FELINES!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of 
being the most challenged warrior, CAVE DWELLER!  Don't make idle boasts, they may 
come back to haunt you.  BOO BOO KITTY didn't quite know what to make of a challenge 
she received from MRI of SOLITAIRE, who is 24 points below her.  MRI perhaps got his 
just desserts, seeing as he bested BOO BOO KITTY and ended up with 62 recognition 
points.   
     Warriors of ZUKAL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  ZUKAL is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Mri -- With a name like that, it's an abbreviation for Marie, right?, you should be a
girl.  Why aren't you a girl?  You SHOULD be, dammit. -- Ultorino
P.S.  I was all confused.

Me-Ouch -- Yeah, yeah, they all say that.  You're alive, so you've got no complaint
coming, you scraggly hairball. -- True Blue

Wilyum -- It's those fans.  They should KNOW I can't do it and stop shouting
encouraging nonsense! -- Zulor, just adequate, if that

Blood Sugar Baby -- With caffeine, I hope.  Gotta DO something with all that sugar
rush, after all. -- Blue Shrew

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.
