                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for CHOCK, who flew up 
13 points in the rankings after mashing THAI like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was THAI, who dropped 10 points after 
a disappointing (to say the least) bout with CHOCK.  Well here's a duelmaster that 
doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  OSTRICH made a challenge against SATURN 
this week.  Well, everybody's pal OSTRICH moved his record to 17-14-0 by defeating 
SATURN in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 7 recognition points.  An apple a 
day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid BIRDS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does KATI-TEI really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
MEDAL OF HONOR 26's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from BIRDS.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of SATURN, who was this 
week's most challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  5 GOT PICKED defied all odds and slew STONE GOLEM in the 
Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as STONE GOLEM's meat is 
notoriously tough.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, MIKE COLALILLO was 
mashed by SWAN, who let MIKE COLALILLO know that killing members of BIRDS is a no-no. 
Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the 
trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the KATI-TEI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

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!
