                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ZORPUNT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, KRILL CAVALRY.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with 
TIRALEA FLETE?  She actually beat MONEY PIT's ULTIMATE SIN, and walked away with 23 
more points from the fight.  Major screwup at AUSSIE KILLERS.  TIGER SHARK lost 16 
points to MIKELA POOLE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe TIGER SHARK will 
provide more easy wins...  CONVICTED ASSASSIN was reminded on the sands why INNY 
MEANIE is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
ZORPUNT thinks KRILL CAVALRY and their 527-526-13 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at MONEY PIT couldn't face the challenges from KRILL 
CAVALRY!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in BILL POOLE JR?  His 3-1-0?  
KRILL CAVALRY ain't talkin', but he's got 17 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  IRMEAN of MONEY PIT got 11 points for removing 
another young punk.  Tough luck, KRILL CAVALRY!  Many a warrior has met his fate in a 
hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...--

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

6 May 2006
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!
