                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRICORUS games.  MELISSA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested MARGALH and was awarded 25 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MELISSA put down MARGALH, 
causing him to lose 20 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, SPIDER-MAN has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This 
time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail ZALGEI, Duelmaster of 
TRICORUS!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TRICORUS.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  DARK HORSEMEN is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding DARK HORSEMEN.  Indeed it was AMAZON ELITE.  Loose talk at the arena 
has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
REALITY.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Spider-Man -- Euwh, I hate spiders, they give me the creeps.  But I'm glad to see
someone else with the title and the column, and who better than a spider to have
that dirty job to do, eh?  Good luck. -- Zalgei

Daphne -- You should have had some warm-up bouts before the real thing, eh?  But
I've no doubt you'll trounce an opponent or three now that your back in action. --
Margalh

Black Lotus -- I think it's your insidious perfume that stupefies my mind and
renders me helpless before you. -- Galbei
P.S.  Either that, or your exotic beauty.

Black Lotus -- Galbei is naturally stupefied.  Not that I mind you hitting him.  Do
it again! -- Delange, Lady Protector, retired

Samurai -- That's the way it goes, I guess.  Both of us and our records just got
more so.  Oh, well. -- Aillendei

Ed. -- Well, my vocabulary could use a little building! -- Margalh

     How about a tool shed? -- Ed.

Lord Protector Spider-Man -- Leaving us so soon?  Fare you well, then, and may you
find a nice corner with lots of flies to spin your web. -- Arenamaster Rahj

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.
