                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome WILLAF.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  But how many friends do you have now?  Ya gotta be 
quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
POWER LEGION is now ranked 3rd with a 3-1-1 turn.  PUNNY AMINALS showed WILLAF what 
they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 3-1-0.  What's 
with NEGATIVE BALANCE?  He actually beat THE WICKED's BRAEL-LWE, and walked away with 
17 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at GOLDEN GLADIATORS while they 
watched POT OF GOLD clobber PUNH JENTLY.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  WILLAF has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get 
lazy.  He Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's ARENAMASTER KHARAK (0-0-0), which should 
prove (ahem!) interesting.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER KHARAK 
killed the Duelmaster, SHOCHU, leaving YAMABUSHI in mourning.  So now KETL PHYSHE 
gets to be WILLAF's Duelmaster.  But what comes around goes around.  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  WILLAF thinks YAMABUSHI and 
their 152-157-14 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  The bums at 
COLOR ME couldn't face the challenges from YAMABUSHI!  No excuse for that!  How well 
I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, KLONDIKE GOLD!  Don't make 
idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  KLONDIKE GOLD didn't quite know what 
to make of a challenge he received from BLUU GNITE of COLOR ME, who is 19 points 
below him.  BLUU GNITE perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was overcame by 
KLONDIKE GOLD and ended up with 29 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

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!
