                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in JHANS, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--KARNIVORZ.  Practice pays for PAULA, 
who pummelled CHESHIRE BAT, to pocket 17 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, BEEZLE was winsome, after beating DAPHNE'S SQUID and seeing him lose 12 
points.  A certain someone saw SPEKTER at Lucas Lounge with the shakes, and now he 
fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  What can be a greater 
victory?  CLOVER has taken his place as the top, as JHANS' new Duelmaster.  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are JHANS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in HOUSE OF RATS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need 
to avoid 'em.  The warriors of HOUSE OF RATS found their efforts at combat frustrated 
as ERRATA apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  KOBOLD ENFORCER in 
the Dark Arena wasn't enough for RITA RUDNER of THE CLOWNS.  Maybe that certain 
serving girl(?) at Lucas Lounge will be!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match 
itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- This may be OSTs last turn in Jhans for a little while.  Unless they actually
show me something.  I did what I set out to do when I returned here, that was to
graduate Otis and Olive Oyl.  The replacements don't seem to be all that spectacular,
including the two starting this turn. -- Otis the Drunk

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.

3 May 2006
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!
