                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to BIG MEAN FISH, as they are pushed from the coveted 
top team spot by the WASTELAND stable.  A stormcloud is brewing over the 
PENTARCHIE-18 guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send 
the team to the Dark Arena.  Coming up with a solid 3-1-0 outing, GOLDEN LEGION has 
advanced 5 places in the rankings.  SHEPHERDS is no joke as it posted a 4-1-0 week 
advancing from 3rd place to 3rd place.  Hey everybody, watch out for AGENT OF 
BRUTALITY, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing MOOPS! like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this beast.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the 
sands.  MISSION VAO was overcame by THE S-MAN and drops 14 points.  Our battling 
duelmaster COLON CONVOY has managed to hold the title, fending off LOAF's none too 
subtle advances.  Better luck next time, CENTER FOR OLDS.  Can you believe they are 
paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that WASTELAND was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of WASTELAND's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to 
boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause SHEPHERDS beats feet every time 
WASTELAND smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this 'SLOSHERS you ask, with 
81 points and a 12-45-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  This week 16-13-1 YAJIROBE was sent to the Dark Arena.  I 
know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice of this.  Proving 
again that TALCAMA is not rated G, MINO of the CONSORTIUM CREW slew the warrior 
SMEDLEY in a rather bloody bout.  Let's look for a bloodfeud.  Here's some advice:  
warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've 
got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

P'Tain -- Your style runs in abundance in this arena for some reason.  It's no wonder
I'm having such a hard time around here. -- Adamant

All -- This arena is starting to look like an arena filler arena, half of every class
is absent. -- Seraphim

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.

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

6 May 2006
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!
