                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KOLACT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, QUBIT, since CHILDREN OF 
INTI took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now let's all watch 
THE FELLOWSHIP's heads swell from their 3-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, 
big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see TREEBEARD win a 
fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TREEBEARD beat QUIP and QUIP lost 11 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, KOLACT may 
be getting bland, as QUO VADIS stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good 
mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
KOLACT?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  SIR AGLIO was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THE FELLOWSHIP.  
Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, WANDA was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     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?   
     There's got to be a better place in KOLACT to get a drink than Don Corleone's!  
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
KOLACT.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave 
now-- Snide Clemens

Quo Vadis -- Once more, tough guy...dare ya. -- Sadie

Quasimodo -- Really thought I was going to pin-cushion you that time.  Yer pretty
slick for a...* <grin> -- Mr Shrdlu

Moonday -- Now we're talking.  Don't get me wrong.  Thunder's good.  Thunder's
impressive.  But it's lightning what does the work. -- Waldo

Sir Cumference -- We're springing for the celebratory celebration when you finally
get yours.  Donations are pouring in.  Isn't it funny how good it feels to see
someone who deserves to get theirs, get theirs. -- Wanda

Matrix -- I too am surprised as, for me, Kolact shows up to kick-off the weekend.  If
not on the doorstep Friday, Saturday fer sure. -- Still

Sir Broke Stroker -- Gosh!  I never expected to beat a legend like you.  Wow. --
Actaon

Quip -- I hope you have a good one, because it's too hot for me to think of one. --
Estrella

Sir Cophagus -- An eater of cophs?  No, it should be an eater of cos, shouldn't it?
Whatever, very strange.  But it does seem to keep you going rather well. -- Cynica

Wzldo -- Just didn't hzve time for it todzy.  Must've been the holidzy effect. --
Monodzy
P.S.  Sorry, Ed., but you were right, my As hzve been stolen.

     I'd hunt around for a Pacific Islander--they generally have a few spares. -- Ed.

Kalasasay -- The "you don't belong here" thing?  It just referred to the arena.  Not
to you being on Kolact.  Or in my company, for that matter. -- Callisto

Wanda -- You know, I'd guessed that. -- Ghost of Aristorkus

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

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!

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!
