                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  VEASTIAN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, THE FAMILY had 
to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by ROGUES' GALLERY!  Way to go 
ROGUES' GALLERY!  MVP award for RIGA?  ROGUES' GALLERY's proud of her after beating 
STILJANZ and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  TIRRAJ got smashed 
by ETHON EL KEER, and lost 9 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  DAPHNE 
CAMISADO stopped GRINIAN dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real 
snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  Can TERMAGANT VOTARY's TAMARA RAHN 
be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All VEASTIAN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey!  Quit laughing!  Just because RED VALERIAN had 0-11-0 
was no reason for TERMAGANT VOTARY to send him to the Dark Arena!  Stop it!  How 
cruel!  TERMAGANT VOTARY heartlessly sent hers to LADY MANTLE certain fate in the 
Dark Arena.  Is a 2-12-0 bad or something?  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  VEASTIAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Daphne Camisado -- I hand over to you with pleasure, since I can feel confidence that
you will write a column.  I don't know that a column actually does anything for the
arena, but lacking one...well, it makes one feel a lack.  (frowning pause)  That
didn't come out quite right, but I'm sure you know what I mean.  Anyway,
congratulations. -- Tirraj

Red Valerian -- Ah...good in gardens, I believe.  Probably some medicinal value, as
well.  Um...consider that your name has character? -- Konjor
P.S.  I hope you don't get sent to the Dark Arena, you're just building up momentum.
You'll be fine when you hit your stride.  Really.

I don't let a mere Venomous Concubine get away with stuff like that, even if she IS a
ravishing redhead. -- Grinian

Tirade -- Don't talk to ME like that, wench!  Talk to your manager.  It's all HIS
fault. -- Stiljanz

Asano -- A man of determination, I see, and a good thing.  I just LOVE determined
men, even when they're hairy little dwarves. -- Tirniellis
P.S.  We've got a hot tub at our guildhouse, come try it.

Daphne Camisado -- Eh?  Did I say you WERE?  Surely not! -- Grinian

Ethon El Keer -- Well, heck, I didn't make it happen!  Just hang in there and keep
working.  You'll do, kid.  Eventually. -- Tirraj

Xiang -- We expect personals.  Get with it. -- Jorja, The Family

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.
