                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TOBIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  It seems so recently people were saying 
FOREIGN LEGION was washed up, finished.  But 3-0-0 moved them up 0.  I guess they're 
washed no more...  What's with CHICHI-HOOEY?  He actually beat PLAYPEN's BINKIE, and 
walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at PLAYPEN.  BINKIE 
lost 14 points to CHICHI-HOOEY.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe BINKIE will 
provide more easy wins...  I'm sure TOBIR is excited about WOOFER, the new Duelmaster 
from THE DOGHOUSE.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
TOBIR is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

These should have appeared in the newsletter last time, but Hal ate them.  Still, I
had a copy, so you don't get out of it. -- Leeta

Well, just ruffling through the fights here, it looks like Doghouse and Playpen and
nobody else.  Hmm, okay, somebody else, but not for the Doghouse.  How about a
Duel2Dudette column and/or some personals, Kat?  Be the puss of personals, the calico
of conversation!  Dogs and kats have to communicate, or they degenerate in
stereotypes, right?  Or something like that. -- Leeta
P.S.  And if I can get you to talk, I'm going after the Arena Felines next....

Little Devil -- You're one of my better students, but I ask you to remember that a
DEAD warrior teaches nothing ever again. -- Andillia

Sippycup Sam -- (puppydog eyes)  You don't SHARE.  You just hit me with your rattle!
I want a sip, too.  *I* know how to be friendly.  (coaxingly)  I'll lick your face.
I'll stick my cold wet nose in your...armpit.  Come on, you could share, couldn't
you?  Whatever you've got in the cup must be wonderful, the way you're hanging onto
it. -- Woofer

Tantrum -- Bad Cat!  No scratching, no clawing, no yowling in my ear.  Bad Cat! --
White Fang
P.S.  I thought cats spent a lot of time just sleeping in the sun.  Go find some sun
and sleep in it.

Pamper Packer -- You're too big, and for one of my breed, that is a red flag to a
bull.  (I always wondered about that.  Why should a red flag be more enraging than a
green or yellow one?  I hate people waving ANY kind of flags around me.)  I always
bite very tall people on the ankles, just to make sure they know I'm down here. --
Chichi-Hooey

Current personals:

Sippycup Sam -- You don't need a sippycup, boy!  Get out here and guzzle! -- Woofer
P.S.  Dogs hate sippycups, because it's hard to get a really good spill, and if you
don't have a good spill, what is there to lick up?

Binkie -- Don't hit the dog!  Didn't your momma tell you that? -- Chichi-Hooey

Tantrum -- If I weren't a very well-mannered dog, I'd bite you for that outburst. --
White Fang

Little Devil -- Write a column, you little devil! -- Andillia
P.S.  They tell me they've fed Hal and it won't be eating so many personals for a
while, so you can do this.

Listen, you guys, get some more active warriors out here!  That *I* should have to
fight three times in one day is INSANE and GROSSLY UNFAIR. -- Curshif Ty, Volunteer

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.
