                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at JAGUAR WARRIORS left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  Good show! 
JAGUAR WARRIORS had cause to celebrate, after HIDEKI HAO got 20 points by beating HOT 
ROD.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 15 points to HIDEKI HAO.  (Discrete enough, HOT ROD?) A certain someone saw 
MALKAI at The Drunken Ox with the shakes, and now he fails to show up to defend his 
throne.  What a pathetic slob!  In ZUWAYZA, nothing is permanent (except Death), and 
we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, SUE SHEE.  So who was the warrior seen charging 
into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of JAGUAR WARRIORS should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, FUNKY FOLK scurried away from JAGUAR WARRIORS.  Oh, the shame!  Is 
it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it 
is, JILL OPPY is the most challenged warrior.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZUWAYZA is the highlight of my life.  As the 
seasons change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to 
leave this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
ZUWAYZA?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Modern Maturity -- Stuffed shirt?  No, (taps belly) this is all me.  What I need is
more skills.  And you are not helping at all. -- Ved Buens Ende

Hot Rod -- Running a little slow there.  Perhaps you need some maintenance? -- Deo
Volente

Black Maiden -- Thanks for the skills.  We'll fight again. -- Heded Hag

Cooking Lite -- I don't like to diet.  I prefer a hearty meal. -- Hideki Hao

Cary Yon -- Always good to get a win on your first fight.  Thanks. -- Matarse Fury

Heaten Youngblood -- You dare to return to the Holy City!  You were banished because
of your blasphemous comments against Our Lord, Kjarran.  We may be desperate for new
teams here, but we will not put up with your continuing denigration of our Lord
Kjarran. -- Noachian, mgr. Jaguar Warriors

Youngblood -- Kjarran is the One True God.  The God of All.  All other gods are
false.  We look forward to killing your godless heathens. -- Noachian

Ved Buens Ende -- You are a child, but not without some wit.  I thank you for those
skills.  May you live to reach your maturity. -- Modern Maturity

Deo Volente -- (waggling his eyebrows and leering cheerfully)  Hey, baby, wanna go
for a ride in my carriage? -- Hot Rod
P.S.  The back seat is quite roomy.

Ambitious Guard?  If that is the quality of the Satrap's guards, I marvel that the
Andorians haven't swept the whole palace away! -- Sports Ill.

Hideki Hao -- No, I'm sorry, I know it's very low in fat, but I just cannot bring
myself to eat raw fish. -- Cooking Lite
P.S.  But I can offer some interesting recipes involving chocolate.

     Chocolate and raw fish?  That's just WRONG. -- Ed.

The Mordant Deserter's a disgrace to his gender.  As the saying goes, "he's worthless
and weak and does not belong here."  If he is a fair representative of Mordant, why
haven't we taken it over? -- Guy

Ved Buens Ende -- That is a juvenile ambition, child. -- Modern Maturity

Deo Volente -- Sounds like a good plan to me.  I'll help! -- Sports Ill.

Deo Volente -- No such thing!  Nothing wrong with YOU, but the carriage named after
you, while basically sound, is a tad slow.  Solid cast iron axles?  I ask you! -- Hot
Rod

Ed. -- Hmm, no, navy blue with red stripes is what *I* think. -- Sports Ill.
P.S.  Curry?  (shudder)

     That sounds kind of dark.  I think the barber pole look is better. -- Ed.
     P.S.  Curry is GOOD.

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.
