                             Notes from the arena champ.

Ahhhh.  The DM's seat sure feels familiar.  Hail and well met, warriors of Solven.
What's that smell?  Of course, it is me, Smelly, your returning Duelmaster.
Hopefully I can continue to live up to my pre fight billing.  I'll share my starting
numbers upon graduation for your drooling pleasure.  Until then, may you fight well,
and challenge smart.  A few things The Republicans continue to prove they cannot do.

-- Smelly

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail SOLVEN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  The THE REPUBLICANS guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in 
the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, SAMUEL 
A ALITO, JR fought THE HONEST MERCHANT and gained 13 points and contributed to THE 
REPUBLICANS' 4-1-0.  OH WELL has lost to ZEBROE, falling 6 points, while helping make 
JUST CHILLIN a 1-4-0 turn.  And all eyes were on BLIZZARD this turn as he ascended to 
the throne of Duelmaster.  SOLVEN has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I 
have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  THE REPUBLICANS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were SOLVEN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And guess who avoided THE REPUBLICANS stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
GRANDPA RAT from KELLUMBO'S KIDS was SOLVEN's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in SOLVEN, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Judge -- Nice lil' 3-2 turn you had there.  Too bad Kellumbo's Kids pulled a 5-0.
Looks like the Kids lead in our bet 13-10 with the first to 25.  Continue to enjoy
the view from the rear.  I know you are used to it. -- Detective Kellumbo

Kellumbo -- Well, it's your lead 8-7.  At least I can stop DAing warriors for now.
Let's see what happens next turn. -- Judge

Zebroe -- That was embarrassing--for me. -- Brooks & Dunn

Smelly -- Good!  Glad to leave the duel2dude's column in someone else's hands. --
Zebroe

Franz Josef -- That was chaotically quick, but how was it medieval? -- Chaz Ducker
P.S.  Can I call you Frankie Joe?

John Roberts -- Not HEARTLESSLY.  I would never laugh heartlessly.  I have heart.  I
always laugh heartily.  Er, but not in the arena.  I don't want you to think I was
PLEASED at the prospect of slaying you.  For one thing, if I HAD been pleased at the
prospect, I would have PURSUED it, wouldn't I? -- Benito Chatte

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.
