                             Notes from the arena champ.

It appears that the end is getting near.  With a win this turn, I hope to get my
graduation announcement.  As soon as it comes, I'll share a little secret Kellumbo
and I have been holding onto for a while now. -- Smelly

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SOLVEN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see NONPAREIL win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, NONPAREIL beat 
JOHN ROBERTS and JOHN ROBERTS lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, SOLVEN may be getting bland, as SMELLY stays top dog in 
the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You 
want to know what's new, don't you, SOLVEN?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
MEDIEVAL CHAOS, 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 KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, FRIST was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I notice TAMMY challenging down 16 points to 
fight OH WELL, KELLUMBO'S KIDS doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an insult to 
honor.  And golly gee, TAMMY beat OH WELL.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?  I 
guess I can give a little credit to GRANDPA RAT of KELLUMBO'S KIDS for challenging up 
by 23 to FROZEN FANNY.  GRANDPA RAT won to get 96 points of recognition.  And we have 
TASHELL in a challenge, going down 8 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought 
TASHELL showed great skill and promise when she overcame FRIST.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SOLVEN's 
morgue.  More variety.  A big yahoo goes out to OLYMPIA SNOW this turn, for revenging 
THE REPUBLICANS' bloodfeud against JUST CHILLIN's warrior TUNDRA.  Heh, heh, heh.  
Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless 
cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

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!

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!
