                                      SPY REPORT

     ODDLY SHAPED BOOB continues to fascinate the crowds and why not?  It isn't every
day the old-timers even come out on the sands, let alone succeed.  BARITUS challenged
for the top spot, but was not able to overcome the fan favorite.  That gives ODDLY
SHAPED BOOB a chance to do what few have done in recent days.  Three turns in a row
on the throne.
     While SUAVE may hold the throne, he also knows that with the Battle Royal over,
instead of being the most avoided team, it might pay to start avoiding the most.
This turn, CENTER FOR OLDS avoided THUNDR + LITENING.  Unfortunately, the scribe who
was supposed to bring me the full avoids report didn't show up this turn, so I don't
have the numbers.
     I did figure out some other numbers, though.  There were 13 Dark Arena fights, 2
Bloodfeuds issued (both of which were won), 12 challenges recognized, and 22 match
ups (4 against Commission stand ins).  Only 3 of the challengers lost (all three
losers went up in the ranks).  Fifteen warriors moved up a recognition class and five
warriors moved down a recognition class.
     No teams were able to win 4 or more fights this turn.  CLAN BATLEAXE 2 was
undefeated in 3 fights, so I suppose they should get some recognition for that, but
it isn't as impressive as winning 4 in my opinion.  Not surprisingly, then, the Team
on the Move award was quite a contest.  OF WOLF AND MAN II got the award, edging out
BIG MEAN FISH by a 2 point gain.  WASTELAND held on to the Current Top Team, in spite
of the fact that they only won 2 fights this turn.
     The most challenged warrior was actually a surprise to me.  LACTAID received
more challenges than any of the perennial suspects.  JOSH was the one to get his
challenge through and lost in a quick one minute fight.
     Not surprisingly, many teams have gone inactive after the Battle Royal has
ended, but I am encouraged that Talcama appears to remain healthy.  With so many Dark
Arenas, it is clear that managers haven't given up the idea of fighting here in what
I believe is Alastari's best city.  Two teams (EXTREME AGGRESSION and MORE GOTH) also
returned to the sands this turn.
     I'm tempted to expand my hottest warrior list, but I'm not sure my idea of
expansion would sit well with the recipients.  I've made it my habit to report to you
the hottest warriors on the sands.  These are warriors that have not missed a single
fight in the last ten turns and have shown consistency in winning.  VORN and COLON
CONVOY are only a single fight each from perfection, having gone 9-1 over the last
ten turns.  Not nearly as close to perfect, but still seeing success the likes of
which not many see are ARMPIT CANDY and JOSH, who have gone 7-3 in the last ten
turns.  My idea for expanding this part of my report is to give the list of not-so-
hot warriors.  This list would be those warriors who've not performed well at all in
the last ten turns.  I'm hesitant, though, because I can just imagine how managers
would react to having their losers exposed to all in a public fashion.  And
ostracization by these managers does not seem to be a way to keep in your good
graces.  So let me know if you'd be interested. -- Sherik

CONGRATULATIONS to The Muffin Man for winning The Battle Royal.  What a great start
on the year, and such significant early 2006 dominance of DM.  You are THE MAN!
Salute. -- The Consortium

Ghost Goby -- Well, it seems you're the only guy I can get my challenges through to.
-- Down W Sickness

Chunky Superdude -- You don't seem as Chunky or as Super as my teammates told me from
past fights. -- Fear

Arete -- Nice challenge.  And what's with the parry skills?  Sheesh. -- The Closer

Radian -- That was fun! -- Ice

X-Force -- Three striker challenges to poor Seiya.  We both know Aimers can't handle
them very well.  I have a hard time believing you didn't do it on purpose. --
Blackstorm

All -- Had the inkling to try an AB for a change, but as fate has it, he got killed.
Saint Seiya 11-4-11-13-12(+2)-14-21. -- Blackstorm

You will be avenged, Saint Seiya!!!!!

Inoch -- Thank you for the praise.  I must admit that I made a poor showing.  Been
trying some mo/mo's of late, but I am displeased.  May our next meeting be a real
clash. -- Nytemair
P.S.  Exceptional ability for one of your style

Long live Tom Sawyer, but short live his reign (heh heh). -- Nytemair

Hammurabi -- Bad draw for you, buddy.  Sorry for the bloodlust but we're all cranking
it up a bit.  Too many fallen comrades. -- Nytemair

Chuck -- Sorry about keeping all your things, but that's what an outlaw does.

Spud -- That was some smack!  Didn't even see it. -- Yor Dethkall

Jodie -- And that completes the lesson on knives.  I don't usually use them.  Not
chaotic enough. -- Chaos Invader

Goat -- Good to see you active again, even if it was only one fight! -- Toker
P.S.  Diplo on da way.

All -- Enjoyed the contest.  Now hopefully I'll be a little better prepared for the
next! -- Toker

Congratulations Muffin Man.  You definitely deserve it! -- Toker

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.
