                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive 
observation?) as FUNKY FOLK can attest...  VINCE certainly had a baffled expression 
on his face, after losing to DAVIA HANNAS and losing 4 points in the process!  Those 
who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by BELTRAN FOSS, of THE MIDDLE WAY 
4, who despite a 18-28-2 couldn't overcome LYRATILAN's Number 1.  So who's the team 
that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt 
to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
MADTOWN are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman 
of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SPONGMONKEYS, so did that sorry team shy 
from MADTOWN Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, XENO YOHL is the most challenged warrior.  Them's the 
breaks, ERHLIE FAY.  Expecting fair challenges from SPONGMONKEYS is evidently too 
much to ask.  BIG JOY bested ERHLIE FAY.  The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.  
XENO YOHL found himself challenged by a warrior 19 below:  SAM SUNG.  SAM SUNG of 
FUNKY FOLK kept his wits as he overcame XENO YOHL.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in LYRATILAN would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in LYRATILAN is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for LYRATILAN?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Puppet -- A fast one.  I like that.  It means I don't have to write a long personal,
doesn't it? -- Davia Hannas

Big Joy -- Hitting me on the head does not cause the skills to fall out so you can
pick them up.  And killing me would mean an end to skills. -- Beltran Foss

Vince -- Huh, like you needed that. -- Xeno Yohl

Bambi Slasher -- Good for you!  Slash up some more deer.  They are PESTS around here.
-- Erhlie Fay

Vince -- You're welcome.  Next time, pay attention and study harder. -- Xeno Yohl

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!

     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

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!!!
