                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CALEAM games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week PHILANTHROPISTS went 5-0-0 to move 
up 4 in the rankings.  My praise to GOLDEN CANYON for their 3-0-0 week this time out. 
Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  DEIMESS caught the eye 
of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and 
was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
ENLIGHTENED BEING put down MEMPHIS, causing it to lose 12 points of recognition in 
the process.  Not for nothing has ALBUQUERQUE in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week it's proven its combat skill yet again.  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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  CALEAM, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is WARCKERS, a guild shunned and avoided by many 
in the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of PHILANTHROPISTS are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in CALEAM.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Memphis -- I would be doing you a favor by burying you in the sand.  But the
arenamaster is such a staid type, he wouldn't stand for it. -- Un-Seamstress

Yucky Tucky -- Gods, you're a sneaky little dude!  It's the trees, isn't it?  We
Rirorni have never understood trees. -- Ghost of Korbel

Darkly -- Think of it as...getting your teeth cleaned or some other unpleasant but
necessary event.  You needed a loss, and now you have one. -- Clemmie

Blood Moon -- You're such a...a GOLEM!  Totally insensitive.  I hate you. -- Golderie
P.S.  Okay, I don't hate you.  That would be dumb and a waste of my energy, since
you're a golem.  I am saddened at the sight of you.

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

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!

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!!!
