                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZORPUNT games.  TAIPAN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DO HICKEY and was awarded 10 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TAIPAN put down DO HICKEY, 
causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Although BUBBA JONES 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious KING 
BROWN SNAKE.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, 
the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZORPUNT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in ZORPUNT these days is KRILL CAVALRY.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of MONEY PIT last week.  Busy avoiding KRILL CAVALRY?  Loose talk at the arena 
has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
TERI LARK.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape the vagaries 
of this world.  This week arena veteran BILL POOLE was slain, despite a 19-11-1 
record.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets 
enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

King Brown Snake -- I am so totally glad that it's you and not me who has to (or at
least SHOULD) write a column this time. -- Bubba Jones
P.S.  It's hard to think of anything to say, isn't it?
P.P.S.  I suppose you could hiss.

Inny Meanie -- But not as mean as me, kiddo! -- Bill Poole
P.S.  Actually, since you're a golem, can you be "mean" in the sense that is usually
meant?  Willfully and intentionally, that is.  Even if you're programmed to be
"mean," well, that's your programming and your designer at work, not you.
P.P.S.  But it comes to the same thing for the people who encounter you.

Ultimate Sin -- Well, I'm shocked!  Shocked and disappointed.  And skeptical.  I just
don't see how a sin can be "ultimate" if it doesn't include chocolate.  Rich, dark,
bittersweet chocolate, yeah!

How can the Cult Member be Shewish if he's only five-foot-nine?  Is it a shrinking
cult?  Is it a secret society of bitter Shewish runts?  It just doesn't make SENSE
to me, and I HATE it when things don't make sense. -- Mikela Poole

Do Hickey -- Your victory does NOT give you the right to do THAT, you sex-crazed
FIEND.  You even TRY it again, and I'll bite and kick and scratch and scream and
tell everyone who comes running....  No, wait, people won't come running these days,
will they?  Too many screams in dark alleys and shadowed doorways.  Well, okay, then
I'll just do any kind of unfair damage I can, and you'd better believe that without
the stewards around to enforce the rules of "fair combat," I can do plenty.  You
have been warned! -- Teri Lark

Ed. -- Well, we should ship them some new, non-Ozzie killers, just to make their
lives interesting. -- Teri Lark

     Somehow I don't think they'd thank you.  Things are interesting enough already,
     even without lions and tigers! -- Ed.

Lord Protector King Brown Snake -- No, you can't have lands.  What do you want lands
for?  You're a snake.  Be glad we don't kill you. -- Arenamaster Kai

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.
