                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in KOLACT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SIR AGLIO is pushed out of top team by QUBIT, who came from 2nd with a 
3-0-0 this turn.  The QUBIT guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in 
the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, 
SARDINE SALLY fought DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and gained 23 points and contributed to 
SPRINGBORN's 2-3-0.  KALASASAYA has lost to CALLISTO, falling 15 points, while 
helping make CHILDREN OF INTI a 4-1-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster 
have failed, and QUO VADIS remains KOLACT's top warrior for another turn.  By the 
way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at Don 
Corleone's?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KOLACT and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Damn....  Down to this few.  How did Kolact go down hill?!  I am sorry that I left
you.  It's only been a year!  I guess I'll have to try and come back. -- MATRIX
(MEGAWARRIORS)

Aristorkus -- My dipsy-doodle shot seems to have dipsyed your doodles.  In other
words, you're doodled out. -- Wanda

Sir Ender -- You're pretty slick with your stick, Nick. -- Sadie
P.S.  Them weren't them either.

Cynica -- It's the battle of the "Ws" between sweet little Wanda and myself.  Alike,
but alas...not-so-much alike.  So we're contest-tizing to see who's really got the
right stuff.  Nice going Cynica, you give me the beat-down while sweet little Wanda's
killing folks. -- Waldo

Frodo -- Winning fights just tickles my fancy.  And when my fancy gets tickled...look
out sailors. --- Sardine Sally

Quasimodo -- Is that any way to greet me?!?  Oh, ya...I guess that is the way to
greet me. (I've got slides)  Guess this means I'll get cranked back up.  You know how
it is, a little experimentation, a little kamikaze time.  Kin almost set my watch by
it. -- Mr. Shrdlu

Quo Vadis -- I dunno quo if you don't.  I might make a stab at where and what, but
not quo. -- Actaon

Quip -- Dang, you always have those sharp, cutting come-bzcks.  How annoying! --
Monoday

    Now your "a" has been stolen! -- Ed.

Waldo -- You're a fool, boy.  But then, you're a short, hairy, rock-digging DWARF, so
what else should I expect, eh?  Fools, every one of you. -- Cynica

Sir Cumference -- About...three inches? -- Estrella

Wanda -- Listen, that was not called for!  That was just RUDE. -- Ghost of Aristorkus

Hmm, looks like last cycle was a bad day for Mordant Deserters.  I wonder if their
lives flashed before their eyes at the last moment and they wished they had stayed in
Mordant? -- Nick

Sardine Sally -- It appears that the Ghost of Aristorkus declines to respond, but it
should be obvious from his current condition that he is, indeed, a fool. -- Nick

Mr. Shrdlu -- Well, I knew I was round the bend.... -- Estrella

Ed. -- Who knows?  It would take a vowel varlet to hoard them, but there ARE vowel
varlets (or knaves) out there.  We must be vigilant.  We can't have the vowels suffer
as the apostrophes did. -- Monoday

     It may already be too late! -- Ed.

3 May 2006
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!
