                             Notes from the arena champ.

Kant -- Aaaaah... Riztab's never looked better.  The sky's a bit bluer, The Mighty
Bunny's a tad clearer and cooler, the bowery bums are weaving a tad unsteadyer, and
it's all because I'm on top.  By strength of arms.  And since I'm a working woman,
I'll take the works... because it does work. -- Aggrandizin Anne, Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of RIZTAB.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Those betting on HAWK'S 
NEST lost their shirt, as HAWK'S NEST lost their fighting abilities:  0-0-0.  What's 
a move up by 9 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, 
according to HOUNDS OF HELL.  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, 
but DREAMERS will tell you 1047-1080-85 is nothing to laugh at...  DREAMERS had cause 
to celebrate, after HUME got 21 points by beating SUGAR.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, KRANKYKARL was winsome, after beating BROTHER ZORT and seeing him 
lose 18 points.  The arena was more crowded than usual this time, as SISTER X faced 
RIZTAB's Duelmaster.  AGGRANDIZIN ANNE successfully staved off a grab for the roses 
by SISTER X of CULTS-R-US.  Does RIZTAB have no one talented enough to dethrone her?  
Word has it one team in RIZTAB is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a 
charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in RIZTAB avoid MARVEL HEROES.  The warriors of 
MARVEL HEROES found their efforts at combat frustrated as FORCE OF FIVE apparently 
had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, BUDDHA could 
open up a fast food joint!  Word has it MAVERICK suffered a romantic setback.  Note 
how he challenged TILLERITA, 29 points his senior.  TILLERITA had a quite go of it, 
putting MAVERICK in his place.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  GORASH THE ORC in the 
Dark Arena wasn't enough for KANT of DREAMERS.  Maybe that certain serving girl(?) at 
The Swinging Aardvark will be!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of 
severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in RIZTAB would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  RIZTAB, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Swinging Aardvark.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Fuzzy Butt -- Very cozy, too. -- Tala Gog
P.S.  When someone's feet are cold, you know.

Sister X -- Drat.  I was hoping "X marks the spot," but I couldn't hit the spot.  Oh,
well. -- Sugar Jane

Maverick -- Why go to school when you can play cards like that, eh? -- Tala Gog

Hang Ten Harry -- Apples are good, so long as they're not delicious.  Winesap, that's

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!
