                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Always good to be DM, even if it is in a dying arena like Solven.  Looks like
the change in strategy paid off last turn, as beating Zebroe seems like quite the
upset to me.  Here is hoping for a few more turns on the throne to get that invite
into ADM.
     Hey, what's that smell?  Is it me, or is it just Judge's record?  Who knows.
-- Smelly

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of SOLVEN!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, JUST CHILLIN.  But how many friends do you have now?  Some people say I ramble 
too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well THE 
REPUBLICANS moved up 0, to 3rd.  What's with FROZEN FANNY?  She actually beat 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS' TAMMY, and walked away with 24 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at THE ZOO.  BENITO CHATTE lost 6 points to OLYMPIA SNOW.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe BENITO CHATTE will provide more easy wins...  Try as she 
might, UP wasn't good enough at persuading SMELLY to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, THE REPUBLICANS!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at JUST CHILLIN ain't reelin'!  THE 
REPUBLICANS' mad!  What do people see in TASHELL?  Hers 13-2-0?  KELLUMBO'S KIDS 
ain't talkin', but she's got 47 points.   
     Warriors of SOLVEN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Judge -- Hard luck on the untimely death last turn.  Since he cannot be DA'd, the
kids have voted to see how Ms. Snow does with a little night fighting.  Good luck,
you'll need it.  Pretty soon you'll have a stranglehold on the initiates in Solven if 
this keeps up. -- DK

Mr. Freeze -- Good to see you finally tossing some challenges around.  You had better
do better than 1-2 on them though if you want to continue.... -- DK

Frozen Fanny -- That's called an if challenged strat there youngin'.  Looks like your
manager sent you in a little under prepared. -- Tammy

Zebroe -- Strange, strange, strange. -- Smelly

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!
