                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MALCORN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, DARK CREATION, since 
MEAT MARKET took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  MEAT MARKET 
turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  MALCORN saw the first turn for J FILES, a 
4-1-0, and some teams are scared, others are too arrogant to notice.  Take note 
friends, take note.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see FIERCE TIGER win 
a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, FIERCE TIGER beat OBMF and OBMF lost 
17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, MALCORN 
may be getting bland, as NYARLATHOTEP 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, MALCORN?   
     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?  POLITICALY INCORRECT was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks 
like DARK CREATION avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, 
if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, BUTCHER was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little 
credit to MEAT GRINDER of MEAT MARKET for challenging up by 18 to XANE REAVER.  MEAT 
GRINDER won to get 89 points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Philosopher -- If you tell me ONE thing, one "wise saw" about losing being good for
me, or leading to good things, or any damn nonsense of that kind, I will SPIT.  Right
out in public. -- Pebble
P.S.  Some skills--you didn't need ALL of them, did you?--is what would be good for
me.
P.P.S.  So I'm a werecat, that's anthropic enough!

Strada -- I'd hate people like you (nothing personal), but it takes too much energy,
and my specialty is not expending energy needlessly.  I just lie around under trees
and let it all happen. -- Tree Shadow
P.S.  I should have been a different style.

Whirlaway -- (staggering and grabbing the wall)  You left me dizzy!  That was...
impressive. -- Jessalin
P.S.  Getting an initial clash with you was impressive, too.  I didn't think I had it
in me.

T-Bone -- Right.  Now...where's that steak sauce? -- Patterson Pine

Spider -- I almost didn't beat you up, out of sympathy for what is going to happen to
you when the True Shews League catches up with you.  I hear they're really incensed
about all these short guys in the arenas calling themselves Shewish.  (shrug)  I
guess they don't have anything ELSE to be proud of, except their height. --
Wasptongue
P.S.  Oh, heck, I killed you?  I'm sorry about that.  *I* don't have anything against
you.  If your manager cares to bloodfeud, I'll be here.

Nyarlathotep -- It seems odd to have a Duel2Dude who crawls. -- Jorja
P.S.  And it must be hard to find a helmet that goes on over that tentacle-for-a-face
arrangement you've got.

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.
