                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM games.  Former top team DODGE 
BULLETS was unseated this week as OLD WANDERERS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the 
top spot with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon LORDS OF 
DEATH this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 12th position in the wake of a 
2-3-0 round.  I could not but notice the fine record for BLOODY HANDS (3-2-1) after 
their first round of combat.  May the gods of war favor you in SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM!  
GRIM BLACKSMITH caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested REDWIND and was awarded 38 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, OL' GRIZ put down STORMDANCER, causing him to lose 14 
points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has LADY CONSOLACION in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat 
skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained 
their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM these days is LORDS OF DEATH.  At least, most 
blades in town are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of OLD WANDERERS 
are catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of 
the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  FERRET 
take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM.  A match 
that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that BODI posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized TYRANNOPATER.  The results, you ask?  
Well, the firebrand BODI was overcame by TYRANNOPATER.  Remember warriors, this is 
the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  My condolences to THE ANIMALS for their loss of a very promising 
warrior, FERRET.  FERRET went to doom before the arms of UDRI, a warrior of 
PHANTACITY.  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I have seen men cut down in their 
prime.  This week DODGE BULLETS must mourn the loss of 19-12-1 REDWIND to NORTHERN 
BADLANDS.  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 SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM as ever I remembered them....and 
the fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer 
can I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Corlego -- Not sure I understand?  Was that a joke?  Or are you honestly confused?  I
sent Newall Eminence over to clear that up.  He's neither a wall nor an ence.  Oh,
and what's a lejo? -- Selema

Hail, fellow competitors -- I was hoping to gain your ear, and get some advice.  Can
you parry with a bladeless weapon (i.e. war hammer) effectively?  Can a lunging
gladiator use a weapon that doesn't primarily do piercing damage effectively? --
Gilean

Black Storm -- Hey!  Sounds like a good thing.  I can take them with me to
Chimlevtal.  Be there warring on the Lords.  Do say hi to me there and hang out with
me in the lichyard (nice spot here and there (Runes)). -- Liam the Goth etc...

Zoo Keeper -- Halberd needs 9 SZ, 17 ST, 9 WT, 11 DF, is 8 lbs.  Recommended for
platemail and plate armor, is good vs. all armors.  Your fighter should have normal
Endurance at the least.  Is a Bash and Slash weapon useable by bashers and strikers,
is marginally effective for lungers and unorthodox for the others.  As for the
longspear you need 11 ST, 9 SZ, 5 WT, 9 DF, is 6 lbs.  Recommended for chainmail and
ringmail.  Good vs. leather, padded leather and scalemail.  Poor vs. platemail and
plate armor.  Lunger weapon useable by strikers, lungers( classical weapon) parry-
lungers, TP, P-rippers and Aimers.  The slasher and wall of steel cannot use the
longspear.  If you have any more questions diplo me -- Black Guard (584) DM-31. --
Liam the Goth

The Scribe -- Well I have run out of money for Morya.  Do you think you could print
the storyline in DM-31 as well so I can keep up and help out? -- Liam

Pentarque -- No I'm not hiding or anything, I will be back in force real quick.  I'm
busy going over all the new info I found. -- Blackstorm

Pentarque -- Sorry about that.  One thing I've learned about Bashers.  They are not
the fastest or most artistic.  But when they gain an advantage, you may very well
leave your life.  She had the 7 KD.  Don't be too harsh, but do feud please. --
Blackstorm

Hecate 'Trios -- Well done.  Are we to meet again? -- Cantal (eyeing her halberd)

Spirit of Hard Times -- Rest easy.  Blackstorm shouted at me to stop, but I heard too
late.  We always hate killing friends. -- Maelle

Stormdancer -- AAARGG!  Dancing in storms will eventually get you killed you know.
Until then happy hunting. -- Marie Alice

All -- Running an all Basher team may be a little too dangerous in the long run.  We
already have the highest kill percentage, but we would like to remind all of you that

it's nothing personal, and we stay at 6 or 7 KD, which has little to do with death.
I think repetitive cracks to the skull with heavy blunt instruments do that. --
S.O.S.

Flo Valve -- I hate surrendering to a floozy like you!  At least go out and beat up
some men! -- Mankiller

Newall Eminence -- Ouch. -- Corlejo
P.S.  I can't write a better personal until you reveal some personality, can I?

Ah, the Venomous Concubine.  How...thrilling. -- Redwind

Lady Elma -- Ma'am, it wasn't personal, just doing my job. -- Stormdancer

Hesher the Tall -- Yep, you're tall.  How come the Commission didn't label you a
dwarf? -- Haruspek

Blackstorm and Liam the Goth -- My apologies, but I simply don't have time to get a
new storyline under way here until I clear some of the storylines elsewhere off my
desk.  I will do this as quickly as I can. -- the Scribe

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!

     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
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
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!!!
