                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hey, B.B., you found your man in me, didn't you?  Honey, let me tell you, it takes
more than a little toothpick thrust to the groin to keep me down!

My dear SCOMSSites, it's so nice to lead you!  My name is Jack McFarland, but you can
just call me Jack.  Just Jack.  You know, I'm no stranger to being in the limelight.
I performed a one-man show off-off-off Broadway that was THIS close to hitting the
big time!  I would have made it if the theatre owner had only given me enough time to
find an audience.  Rats!  Oh well, in the meantime I've taken up this gladiator stuff
to make ends meet (no pun intended)...blush.  I'm not going to bother with
challenging my closest "friends" in the Challenger Champs.  No, I'm going to issue
another bloodfeud challenge to Philp of Macedon with the intention of killing him.
THEN I'll worry about facing his teammates in the CC ranks.  :)

Ciao for now,

Just Jack

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SCOMSS SWAMP?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  If The Swinging Aardvark is buying 
drinks for BLACK STORM's good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 
5-0-0 makes for a big thirst.  With any luck, I can sneak into The Swinging Aardvark 
and join OLD HABITS' celebration over their good record this turn.  8th place, not 
bad.  Look out below!  NATURAL B. KILLERS 2 is on the way down, falling to 16th from 
3rd with a 1-3-0!  Ha ha ha ha!  Now let's all watch GOTHIC MINISTRY's heads swell 
from their 4-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  I can 
just hear all the boasts coming in DOJO's next personal ads.  Their first turn they 
went 3-2-0.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see B.B. CROSS win a fight 
and gain 29 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ETIENNE DUPLAIX beat ICHORID and ICHORID 
lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
SCOMSS SWAMP may be getting bland, as JACK MCFARLAND stays top dog in the city.  The 
Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get 
this stuff?  From SCOMSS SWAMP's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  THE BEAR'S PAW was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like THE BEAR'S PAW avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, ART PENDRAGON was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  CLINTONLIKESBUSH was challenged by one of AGE OF 
EMPIRES' warriors this turn, with CYRUS THE GREAT having a lead of 20 points going 
into the fight.  Question now is, will SCOMSS SWAMP accept this sort of tacky 
behavior?  CYRUS THE GREAT beating CLINTONLIKESBUSH.  The insult, the....yech!  I 
guess I can give a little credit to ROGER L'BEAU of KNIGHTS TEMPLAR for challenging 
up by 21 to CRYPT ANGEL.  ROGER L'BEAU lost to get 7 points of recognition.  And we 
have CAESAR in a TV challenge, going down 14 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I 
thought CAESAR showed great skill and promise when he was overcame by BOMBADIL.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Nipped in the bud, you might say, was 
TARANTELLA of LOST SOULS this turn.  Course, I wouldn't say that, so much as have a 
belly laugh.  Heh heh.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, SWAMP 
ROSE HAMMER of ALL SWAMP HAMMERZ has added the final loss to hers 6-9-0.  Tee hee!  
Ya gotta go sometime, and SAMBA's time was this time.  Hmmm, not a bad fighter, had 
she lived... (what?  me pity?).  Well, CYANIDE, I guess LIFE'S LESSONS stable was 
just too chicken to bloodfeud you over BONDS ON 'ROIDS.  I guess cowardice is part of 
managing a team.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to see BLOOD 
RAYNE and DARK PINNACLE at The Swinging Aardvark tonight celebrating their bloodfeud 
victory over CHAOS BOAST.  A big yahoo goes out to FULBOTLNFRNTOME this turn, for 
revenging FREEDONIA's bloodfeud against THINGS I DROOL IN's warrior STUFF.  Heh, heh, 
heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless 
cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in SCOMSS SWAMP to get a drink than The 
Swinging Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm 
sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back 
of this place-- Snide Clemens

SNARKonfused -- Putrid Patrick is none other than Slugbait, current leader of SCOMS
Towers. -- Oz The All-Knowing

Baphomet -- We shall see.  We shall see.  (re: Swampfest IV) -- Oz The Non Committal

Boneclaw -- It only made sense to do it again, didn't it?  (wink) -- BOQ

Jade Falcon -- You Pinnacle's are always so accommodating. -- Magic Wand

Swamp Lily Hammer -- Your manager ought to be mighty embarrassed about THAT! --
Fighting Tree

Gangsta Creep -- I really, really had fun with you. -- Hip Hop Humbug

Sheris Liaday -- A little too much for you, eh? -- King Of Beasts

Hmmmmmmm, a 13-7-2-1 (one DA) for SCOMS Tower last round.  Hmmmmmm, 9 total
stylemasters and spy mentions.  Are you backstabbers making headway?  Way to go, Big
Team. -- Oz The All-Excited

Anonymous, (Manager or Sentinel) -- That was a great spotlight.  Yep.  Fine, indeed.
-- Oz The All-Praising

Hey, is that Banana Jack McFarland on top of the swamp?  Congrats, Mannequin The
Master. -- Oz The All-Praising

Crip -- Watching Father O'Malley's face upon learning the truth WAS priceless.  It
still is, because each time I talk to him he uses that term "backstabbing"!  Glad I
don't have friends like his! (smirk) -- Oz The All-Amused

Mannequin -- Well, since "we" have collected enough losing tee shirts already, our
lips are sealed. -- Oz The All-Quiet On The Western Front

Mannequin -- When you "checked Raven out" at the FTF, did you use micrometers? -- Oz
The All-Interested

Raven -- Clearly you have your politics inverted.  Why, backstabbing and sideswiping
have always been liberal policies.  (e.g. recent example of Raven vs. O'Malley as
opposed to Death Stud and Soultaker.) -- Oz The All-Educated

Lethal -- Your name is more deadly than your fighting for certain -- Fade to Black

WOW -- Almost had me!  Thanks for the skills! -- Justice for All

Demonic Hex -- Man am I bad or what? -- Blackened

All -- Just ignore Tripwire's team...we aren't here...just preparing for the summer
tournaments...ignore...ignore....  We won't interfere in the contest. -- Tripwire

Chaotix Beasts -- Sure we are always going to be open to challenges, but we figured
your moral fortitude was above challenging down with the style advantage.  No need to
fear, the Flush will always be above such tactics. -- Royal Flush

Stag -- The problem with lots of kills is they move you up the standings before you
are really ready.  We won't complain though! -- Jack & Jill

Black Ball -- I thought I had you with a finishing stroke at the end, but it looks
like I scratched. -- Drama Queen

Crip -- Priceless indeed.  I'm sorry that you couldn't be there, too.  We missed you.
-- Raven

Impresario -- I was going to come back with some snide cutdown on Manager, but he
actually did do a good job and had good material to work with.  I built the boat, but
he did a fine job guiding it to port. -- Raven

Liam etc. -- Hey as well to your bad self. -- Raven

Nuln -- Check you out running all over the competition here in SCOMS Swamp.  It looks
like Impresario should have recruited you as well. -- Raven

Hammer -- Sorry about Swamp Claw.  I was definitely hoping to beat him, but wasn't
planning to send him home to you in a bag. -- Razor

Father O'Malley -- I can't believe that you would challenge Historian like that.
Have you no sense of loyalty and allegiance for your friends?!?  This makes me look
at your motivations in an entirely different light. -- Raven

Clintonlikesbush -- Hey, no hitting!  Didn't your mom teach you anything? -- Morwhen

Suculant -- Indeed.  *licking fingers* -- Dark Heart

Sister Mercy -- Whew, I'm glad that your name isn't Sister No Mercy or that could
have been an entirely different fight. -- Red Devil

All Swamp Hammerz -- Tremendous showing. -- Sincerely, Snark (yeah, you too, you
Ozer...)

Fellow Forkers -- You're welcome for all the points! -- TATIOAHC

Baphomet -- Yep, I laughed at the boxers bit, and then I read the next sentence and
laughed out loud! -- SNARKyougotmynumber (12 yrs!)

Frizodo -- Nice riposte (whatever that means). -- FULLBOTL (emptyhead)

Stuff -- A mercy killing! (I was already running out of material for LEXX) -- SNARK

Medee -- I will always be stronger than you. -- The Kurgen

(CUMTOLUMPSCUM will whump! you, Medee, my dear. -- SNARK)

Warhammers -- Welcome back to North Fork.  It's not the same as it used to be, but
hope you feel at home. -- SNARK of FREEDONIA (32)

"Who will sign my petition..." to remove the antiquated outmoded pansy PARRY-RIPOSTE
fighting style from this modern arena? -- SNARK (oh wait, parry-ripostes *are*
already extinct here)

Art Pendragon -- TARZAN watch "VINE! OF! FORTUNE!" not "FAMILY bloodFEUD."  Snark.
Snark.  Snark of the Jungle... sendin' Art to A.D.!...  Get. The heck. Out of my jun-
gle... watch out for my epea! (Expatriate!)

Hail Caesar! -- Ancient Rome filled with rumors
                of a local farmer's giant fruit.
                In good humor a legion marched
                to that queasy farmer's home.
                "Fear not," laughed they at his quakin' boot,
                "We've come to *praise* your berry, not to seize it!"
             -- BOMBADIL

(*I'm* here to bury you, Caesar, not to praise you. -- SNARKbrute)

(What?  Not *real* history?!  It is, too!  I just made it up!  That's what I do!  I'm
an *historian*! -- SNARKahistamine)

     Ah, those histamines explain a lot. -- Ed.

Kurgen -- Pint sized disguises are sometimes best. -- Maximillian

Etienne Duplaix -- Not gloating, just waiting for you to bow down and grovel to a
higher power. -- Devout Christian

The late Marijuana Man -- Sorry to see you go, we were looking forward to another
match. -- Clintonlikesbush

Blackstorm -- I wish to chase no managers away from North Fork.  Intentionally or
not, your friend Baphomet came off as very condescending in his notes to the VC.   I
simply took this as an opportunity to start a fight.  And for your information, you
could not change the outcome if you tried.  Don't!

And don't take it personally, I have no beef with you.

Liam the Goth -- My return to 28 is under debate, come to Arkers, I will be returning
there soon for sure, as well as 31,52. -- Maximillian

Ed. -- I can assure you that Zalgor Prigg does not manage Natural B. Killers.  I know
this because I happen to run that stable. -- Maximillian

     Whoops!  Right you are!  Zalgor manages the inactive team on the line above you
     on my list. -- The Saint, keeper and mangler of lists

Art Pendragon -- Maybe we'll meet as Immortals, see you soon. -- White Settler

Ceasar -- I'm honored with a TV challenge...maybe on my terms. -- Clintonlikesbush

Stag -- You've got some big ones, my friend, solid brass! -- Little Big Man

Dark Heart -- One day you'll see the light, my friend. -- Devout Christian

Ahura Mazda -- Did you actually think to take me with no weapons.  You're going to
have to get a lot faster on the draw than that. -- White Settler

Swamp Trap Hammer -- Let's try that again. -- Little Big Man

Morwhen -- Nice try, but not likely. -- Clintonlikesbush

Yogi Bear -- Nice Wall-of-Steel strategy you had going there....  I guess I shall
resign myself to a lengthy Bloodfeud. -- Festus

Arsenic -- Oh, my.  I had always heard you weren't good for my health though the
skills I got for kicking your butt are welcomed. -- Niles

Siege Best -- What can I say?  I'm hosed in more ways than one and I blow.  There, I
said it! -- Louie

Cyanide -- Did your leg fall asleep on you or did you miss the signal for the fight
to begin? -- Lowell

Raven -- You "... saw me checking you out at the FTF..."? I didn't think my taking
the time to verify you were wearing Toughskins (tm) counted as checking you out....
-- Mannequin

Baphomet -- Thanks for the offer. It's appreciated but unnecessary. Everything is
cool and meant in good fun. -- Mannequin
P.S.  Congrats on your new found freedom!

Snail Mail Friends -- My time has been greatly demanded these past weeks and thus
SnailMail letters have not been written! -- Hammer

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.
