                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon KATI-TEI, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe 
you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to LANGUAGE OF LOVE.  MEDAL OF 
HONOR 26 had cause to celebrate, after MIKE COLALILLO got 18 points by beating OSPRY. 
JAMES DOOLITTLE certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to 
FALCON and losing 4 points in the process!  Out with the old, in with the new.  Enter 
VIRGINAL CONCUBINE, handily defeating 5 GOT PICKED.  With 100 points, OSTRICH of 
BIRDS takes the position of KATI-TEI's Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been 
walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in KATI-TEI avoid LANGUAGE OF LOVE.  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of BIRDS, so did that sorry team shy from LANGUAGE OF LOVE 
Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and QUINORE is it right now.  Most challenged 
warrior.  Isn't WANDERERS proud!  As a confidence booster, THAI challenged QUINORE, 
down 21 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, THAI?  THAI 
bested QUINORE with a point difference of 21.  So this is what KATI-TEI calls a duel. 
This will make an interesting tale.  GREEK challenged FRITILLARY!  Who says LANGUAGE 
OF LOVE are just a bunch of wimps!  GREEK of LANGUAGE OF LOVE kept hers wits as she 
won victory over FRITILLARY.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
The audience gave a nice round of rasberries to OSPRY of BIRDS, for expiring in such 
an ungraceful fashion.  5-14-2, indeed!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match 
itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in KATI-TEI 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 KATI-TEI 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

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.

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!
