                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt RIZTAB will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as DREAMERS is pushed out of top team by ALL HALLOW'S EVE, who came from 4th with a 
2-3-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to 
drown for ARENA FELINES, whose 1-2-1 this turn dropped them by 4 into 7th.  ALL 
HALLOW'S EVE stable has parlayed this turn's 2-3-0 into a 3 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  The CULTS-R-US guild 
has had a 4-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where 
this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, TILLERITA fought FELINE GRIN and gained 
22 points and contributed to SWEET MAGIC's 2-3-0.  BUDDHA has lost to AGGRANDIZIN 
ANNE, falling 7 points, while helping make DREAMERS a 3-2-0 turn.  This week's 
Duelmaster bout was between FUZZY BUTT and our Duelmaster CHIC SHEIK, making a 
challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and CHIC SHEIK 
remains RIZTAB's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  CULTS-R-US has cause to stand tall, as they 
were RIZTAB's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding CULTS-R-US more than any other team we find BULBS.  RIZTAB, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 10 WATT 
from BULBS was RIZTAB's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  DREAMERS made what looks to be a tough decision this turn, as they sent 
MARX, with a record of 18-11-0, to MARX death.  Farewell, his.  DREAMERS has some 
questions to answer.  Like 'why did you kill your fighter, MARX, who had a record of 
18-11-0?' The Dripping Blade declares a free round for HALE BOPPER and all of 
CULTS-R-US, for having revenged BULBS' 10 WATT for killing one of their comrades.  
Kudos go out to BROTHER ZORT this turn, for revenging CULTS-R-US' bloodfeud against 
ALL HALLOW'S EVE's warrior TWISTED CLOWN.  Well done.  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 RIZTAB 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

Buddha -- It seemed only sporting I should give you the chance to beat up my entire
team on consecutive turns.  I plan on giving 10 Watt the same opportunity.  (mumble
grumble [bleep]....  I had that mumble grumble [bleep] won....) -- Brother Zero

Ugly Eddie -- You fool!  You buffoon!  You thought you could surpass me, you thought
you could triumph, but you, you poor dilapidated artichoke faced man, underestimated
my absurdity, my complete lack of meaning.  I AM the least popular!  No one could
dare to do less.  I win the least competent, the most ridiculous, the greatest waste
of viewership ever seen!  I am the most least, I win, I win, I win, pbblltt!!!.......
-- Hale Bopper

All -- Geez, that was a stupid desperation strat.  Oh well, on the plus side I've
never seen anyone break a large shield with an epee before. -- Jondeaux

Yoda Man -- I'm still standing here too, sugar.  See you in June. (just kidding) --
Molly
P.S.  Back by popular uproar...The Battle of the Really Bad Too...bad.  (sometimes
you just get it right)  All of three unhistorical minutes.  If you missed it, many
pardons.  Upon short notice of the match posters were only set-out in certain
districts. J

Hale Bopper -- Teachings like that from just your first fight will get you that "Big"
label post-haste. -- Ugly Eddie

Alourshin -- Tail-spin, flying-blind, I must've been got my engine stuck in reverse.
From here on down it's uphill all the way. -- Aggrandizin Anne

Autumn Leaves -- I lost...I don't lose much, you know.  I'm the bright member...vera
sharp.  Feels weird.  Like bald all over, like. -- Hang-Ten Harry

Feline Grin -- Though I were to try my darnedest, there is NO WAY I could grin that
widely, and if I *did*, well, probably my cheeks would freeze that way just like my
mother used to say, or else I'd get cheek cramps, a horrid thought.  And YOU might
get cramps, too, but I think your face has ALREADY frozen.  So I just, er, carved a
little off so you could relax? -- Tillrita the helpful

Cannabus Jr II -- Hmm, an intriguing name to disentangle.  A small bus for canna
lilies?  Or does it divide into Can Nab Us, and you're a practicing kidnapper, or,
possibly, kidnappee?  And I haven't even begun to contemplate the esoteric aspects.
-- Tala Gog

Marx -- Well, heck.  I thought you were a "share the wealth" type, you know, "from
the most able to the most needy" sort of thing.  And it was clear that you were the
most able on the sands, and I was by definition, then, the most needy, but did *I*
get any skills?  As if! -- Sugar Jane

Hang-Ten Harry -- I'm so sorry that your unfortunate experience with those thugs in
the alley resulted in this disability.  But they may actually have thought they were
doing you a favor by hanging you from ten cords, one around each finger and thumb.
If they have misinterpreted some esoteric reference, well, you can hardly blame them
for that.  Alley Thugs are not "into" esoterica. -- Autumn Leaves
P.S.  But I'm into winning, and if your painful fingers give me the opening, count on
me to seize it.

Aggrandizin Anne -- You DID ask for that, you know.  All that "flashy blurs of
motion" stuff.  You can't do that kind of thing and expect me NOT to go for the
knees! -- Alourshin

Hang-Ten Harry -- Be careful you don't get rated "dead," boy. -- Tala Gog

Ghost of Comrade Kulak -- Well...okay, I'll compromise.  Riztabinators for the high-
class, big shot types.  Riztablets for the ordinary Shew in the street. -- Jorja

Comrade Kook -- Good try old buddy, just wasn't in the cards. -- 10 Watt

Funky Monk -- Well done, I must sharpen up my skills. -- Hal Eyed

Ganja -- Sometimes a plan just plain don't work.  Good shot, but I can be rather
bright! -- H.P. Sodium

Dido -- Thanks for cleaning up that mess. -- Barnabas

BBW -- Never liked you in the story book either. -- 5 Watt

Lady Protector Insightfull Ingie -- There will be a slight fee for chipping our Stone
Golem.  Those things are expensive, you know! -- Arenamaster Rillion

Lord Protector Marx -- They tell me it would be wholly inappropriate and elitist to
single you out for a prize, which is very convenient, since there are no prizes to
offer. -- Arenamaster Rillion

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
