     Well, what are you looking at, ZENSU?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, DI$C0MBU1@TED, since LETHAL 
LEGION took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  BLOOD ANGELS turned 
their 2-1-0 turn into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
CRIMSON FEAST win a fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CRIMSON FEAST beat 
TILARIN and TILARIN lost 20 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the 
old, in with the new, as THE MAD CARROT takes the Title and last week's bar tab from 
the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else 
do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  ZENSU, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  GARDEN OF HORRORS the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like BLOOD ANGELS avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, DISEASE was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that 
ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of ZENSU.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

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!!!
