                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of CLIFFHOME.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  SEA DOGS?  Who?  
U.A.K. is the top team these days, buddies!  Practice pays for POULAN, who pummelled 
BURGOS, to pocket 17 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 15 points to POULAN.  (Discrete enough, BURGOS?) Those 
who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by HARANDUR, of JINDA-BAN, who 
despite a 19-30-0 couldn't overcome CLIFFHOME's Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
CLIFFHOME is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in U.A.K. are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a pup 
with its tail between its legs, THE VIKINGS scurried away from U.A.K..  Oh, the 
shame!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in CLIFFHOME is the highlight of my life.  As the 
seasons change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to 
leave this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid 
CLIFFHOME farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Zippo -- Bursting into flame in the arena may be impressive, though it was a SMALL
flame (what were you THINKING?), but it doesn't win fights.  Better luck next time.

Hello Kitty -- Goodbye, kitty, if at all possible.  I'm feeling very anti-cat today.
-- Ballou Ys

Cpt. Crunch -- Damn!  Splattered all over the arena wall, smashed flat as a...as
something that has been smashed flat.  I hate that.  Don't do it again. -- Ghost of

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.
