                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUWAYZA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS, 
since VALAMOND'S CREW took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see VED BUENS ENDE win a fight and gain 16 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SPORTS III beat CARY YON and CARY YON lost 12 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as DEO VOLENTE 
takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The 
Drunken Ox, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From ZUWAYZA's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS, I suppose you'll be glad to know 
you were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  
And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  
It was FUNKY FOLK.  Ha ha ha ha!  HELENA was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZUWAYZA's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in ZUWAYZA to get a drink than The Drunken Ox!  
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
ZUWAYZA.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the 
kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Hot Rod -- That fifth kill is getting closer.  Any turn now.  Maybe it'll be the DM.
-- Ved Buens Ende

Sports Ill -- How many times have we fought?  I guess we'll keep doing it until one
of us is DM. -- Deo Volente

Cary Yon -- All I want is to beat you once.  And I will. -- Hideki Hao

Helena -- I'm here for the long haul.  Master says I have to graduate.  Whether I
want to or not.  So let me win next time. -- Matarse Fury

JE, Valamond -- Welcome to the Holy City.  May the One God provide you with glory and
fortune.  Honor Him and He'll do great things for you. -- Noachian, Servant of
Kjarran, mgr. Jaguar Warriors

Sue Shee -- Oh, good.  I thought for a moment that when our typist returned from
vacation I'd have to do a column, and I've retired from all that. -- Modern Maturity

Deo Volente -- Oh, it's you. -- Sports Ill.
P.S.  I'm not feeling inspired.

Ved Buens Ende -- It'll take me weeks to get that sound out of the bearings, and I
don't dare drive it until I do.  Curse you. -- Hot Rod

Heded Hag -- Urg. -- Guy

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!
