                             Notes from the arena champ.

Oh, dear.  I show up for cameo appearance, and I'm suddenly in the spotlight!

I would like to thank Korbel for a wonderful bout.  I hope both your left and right
buttocks heal quickly.  Next time, please come prepared to teach me something.  I
would like to thank my teammates, Tyra and Troll Stew, for their support and advice.
Thanks to Mom and Dad for their understanding of my career choice.  I really did not
want to be a ballerina.  And, most importantly, I would like to thank Lord Xiang for
his belief in my abilities. *sniff*

*sniffles* I told myself I wasn't going to cry, but this is REALLY emotional for me.
*noisily blows into a hanky*

I guess that Un-Seamstress is the only opponent I can get this time, so (how's that
phrase go?) the 'nod' goes to her.

Your young Duelmaster --

Warbride

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of CALEAM!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with ORLANDO?  It actually 
beat GOLDEN CANYON's UN-SEAMSTRESS, and walked away with 21 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at GOLDEN CANYON.  UN-SEAMSTRESS lost 15 points to ORLANDO.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe UN-SEAMSTRESS will provide more easy wins...  I 
can barely restrain my enthusiam for SHERWOOD FOREST's outstanding member, Duelmaster 
DE DE MAO.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of CALEAM unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
CALEAM is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

All -- It figures.  I pop into Caleam to do some tourney timing, and wind up having
one of my warriors take the throne.  I will be here just two turns, so if Warbride
keeps the title, it will be back up for grabs the turn after.  Don't ask me why I'm
doing the tourney timing thing, but I thought I'd try it for once. -- Lord Xiang,
mgr. Vortex

Aragorn -- Hello!  Finally run into one of your multitudes of teams out there.  Hope
all is well, my friend.  Hope to see you in Baltimore! -- Lord Xiang

Clemmie -- Owie! -- Tyra

Polite Beggar -- Look, my NAME is Troll Stew.  I'm NOT a troll stew!

I wish they'd let me KILL the Noble Assassin.  I've always wanted to that.  It seems
like such an appropriate response. -- L.P. Bouncer
P.S.  I dunno where they got the idea that being an assassin was noble.  I don't see
that at all.

Warbride -- You "held HER at bay"?  I take issue with that, though I know it isn't
your fault.  But just pay attention here:  I'm a guy.  You go calling ME "her," and
there will be consequences. -- Korbel
P.S.  Fighting outside the arena is different, and I'm good at it.

The Virginal Concubine doesn't know ANYTHING.  She's pathetic. -- Un-Seamstress

I won't HAVE the Ruthless Jaywalker crossing here.  It's WRONG, and I don't LIKE it,
and I will RUN HIM DOWN with a freight wagon.  Ha! -- Golden One

Tyra -- You're too short.  Come on down to the Golden Canyon Saloon and we'll give
you something to grow hair on your, er, to make you grow taller. -- Clemmie

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.
