                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LYRATILAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  MONKEY SUIT caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested DAVIA HANNAS and was awarded 
19 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER 
put down THEODORIC, causing him to lose 33 points of recognition in the process.  Due 
to his absence and inability to defend the throne, RICK O'SHEA has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail BLOODSHED, 
Duelmaster of LYRATILAN!  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 LYRATILAN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in LYRATILAN these days is ERRATA.  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 WIND STORM last week.  Busy avoiding ERRATA?  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after FLEX.  
Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in LYRATILAN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Beltran Foss -- Thanks for the jump to the CCs.  I hope to be able to get my invite
soon.  My manager is tired of me hanging around the guildhouse.  He wants a 'real'
warrior. -- Fionna

Flex -- Once you hit me in the groin, it was over.  When I recover from that ugly
wound, I want a rematch! -- Karrick

Great Unknown -- I am sorry for your loss.  I hope to be around for the duration of
your bloodfeud, but I am not sure if I will be active after the tourney. -- Rhyanna

Four other fights.  Four stand ins.  Gah! -- Lord Xiang, mgr. Vortex, Wind Storm,
Lethal Heritage

Puppet -- I like that squishy sound you make when I hit you. -- Sheza Banshee

Vince -- Nicely done.  We'll fight again. -- Corel Eden

Xeno Yohl -- Just don't stand there.  Defend yourself. -- Chavin de Huantar

Rhyanna -- It's not nice to kill off one of my fighters.  It makes me grouchy.  Do
not avoid the bloodfeud. -- Noachian, mgr. Great Unknown

Robin Banks -- Yes, I know, that's where it is.  But there are other fun things to do
(not gladiating).  Let's go find some. -- Quia Salian

Chavin de Huantar -- And I don't WANT to know you, either. -- Xeno Yohl
P.S.  This is, what, one of those desert groups?  Ruins in the sand, and the cold
ocean not far away, sort of thing.  (shiver)  Not for me, I think.

Fionna -- How'd you like my new tactic?  I call it "withhold skills."  Just testing,
you know, in case I need it later on. -- Beltran Foss
P.S.  And I see you were using it, too.

Sealant -- How about if you just sit quietly on your rock and I throw you fish?  It
isn't like *I* want these fish, after all. -- Davia Hannas

Alfie Derzane -- I'll take a serving of that, and the sooner the better. -- Erhlie
Fay

Giglie -- If you have a problem, it's with your manager. -- Davia Hannas
P.S.  And your eyes, maybe.

Bloodshed -- Sharpening it is fine, but don't overdo it or you'll have no blade LEFT.
-- Beltran Foss

Carnage -- No, it was my last pair because Davia borrowed the other pair and she SAYS
she "lost" it.  I have my doubts, though. -- Quia Salian

Lord Protector Rick O'Shea -- I could perhaps get you a license to operate a taxi
service. -- Arenamaster Jyo

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.
