                                    "The Return"

     A caravan moved on the road leading into Illis.  As it topped a small rise, the
Brothers Tosya Zul and Hisarr Zul saw Illis for the first time in many years.
     Tosya Zul:  "May the Prophecy be.  We have returned to Illis, Brother."
     Hisarr Zul:  "Yes, I know.  We have searched the many realms for fighters
but...."
     Tosya Zul:  "You know the Throne is yours.  All I want is to manage this team in
the arena."
     Hisarr Zul:  "Yes, I know, as you keep stating.  So let us work these new
fighters into the best."
     Tosya Zul:  "Yes, brother, let us....  So how do we let the people know we are
back?"
     Hisarr Zul:  "By killing, Brother.  By killing."

                                        Notice to Illis Arena

     The Royal Family Zul has returned to Illis to claim its rightful place.  The
Royal Family Zul set up this Arena!  By the Prophecy, we rule it!

                    The managing Brothers Tosya Zul and Hisarr Zul, of the Royal
Family Zul "By the Blessing of the Prophecy"

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  ISLANDERS now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up with a solid 3-2-0 outing, THE 
WILLBURYS 77 has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  It looks like the guys(?) at 
VINCERE AUT MORI had a good week as they went 3-1-1 to put them in 3rd place.  I 
guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for KONA QUAIL, who flew up 18 points 
in the rankings after mashing JULIUS CAESAR ZUL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  HEZROU was 
defeated by ONE TWO MANY and drops 12 points.  Unlike most arenas, SOUL SCOURGE 
managed to get hers challenge off against the 8-93-0 DUFF.  Well, everybody's pal 
SOUL SCOURGE moved hers record to 18-2-0 by defeating DUFF in the Duelmaster's Title 
Bout and gaining 13 recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold 
to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that HANGOVERS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of HANGOVERS' warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  HANGOVERS + 
Weapons That go Boom = VINCERE AUT MORI + Avoid City.  And who is this RESPIN NIALO 
you ask, with 35 points and a 4-6-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Big deal, so BLACKROCK got mashed in the Dark Arena.  With 
his face he was more at home with the trolls than with us. (Waka waka).  Carrion Bird 
Cinematic Humor:  AMMER EAD II:  THE REMATCH.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for 
they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ILLIS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it 
hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Bottom Feeder -- I will take both of those skills!  Thank you!  I am now off to wait
for the Summer Face to Face.  Good luck to you -- Leonova

I Mother Earth -- Back at you if I get my challenge through!  Oh and I prefer
Immaculate's challenge as long as he gives me those skills every time!  A single
parry skill!?  Shesh. -- Hezrou

Kanga will be fighting for one turn, then it will be all Hezrou for awhile unless I
get a really good warrior in trade for the one I am sending to the darkness. --
Tripwire

Duff -- You remind me of a good friend Homer. -- Nazareth

Hezrou -- I expect you will pass me soon enough. -- I Mother Earth

Urg Gutspiller -- New chapel, same old gospel. -- Immaculatecollection

Dedalus -- Are you sure you have the style right? -- Red Red Wine

(C)ee (J)ay -- Welcome back to the rabbit test. -- Long Island

Aluciea The Bold -- I guess you don't like fire. -- Flaming Moe

Mad Max -- So close, I look forward to the sequel. -- Margarita

Nazreth -- Listen, when I was young, going for the record losses and fights before
graduation seemed like a lark.  But now after one hundred fights, I've got religion.
Six wins, that's all I ask.  Six wins and I'm out of here alive. -- Duff, wondering
if perhaps a strat change or some such might be in order

Soul Scourge -- Attend to your own, you vile reaver!  Mine is in fine condition and
has no need of scourging. -- Wimpira
P.S.  Go after the men.  As a matter of definition, they probably need your
attention.  Just looking at you is enough to inspire impure thoughts in them.

Wise H'Old Wayne -- Well, ye learn like h'it, h'even h'if you're "not quite." --
'Ammer 'Ead

El Cid Zul -- Good gods, you're an old man!  Are you sure you should be out on the
sands doing such active things?  I wouldn't want you to have a heart attack. -- Rose
Shell

Odin Zul -- As fossils go, you're a big one!  But I'm bigger, and I will GET you.
Eventually. -- Kona Quail

I note a lot of new or newly returned teams here.  Welcome.  Is this about to be the
next hot arena? -- Nick, Islanders

Church h'of the Rising Sun -- 'Ambergers, withhout h'a doubt. -- 'Ammer 'Ead
P.S.  H'anchovies h'is just h'another name for stinking fish.

Flaming Moe -- You sure were flaming.  Sorry I had to put you out.  Hey, look at the
bright side.  At least I didn't extinguish your flame totally! (grin) -- Aluciea T. Bold

I'm Powerless -- I'd lend you some of mine, but they say power corrupts and so maybe
you're better off! -- Respin Nialo (V.A.M.)

Red Red Wine -- I see your ploy:  get me drunk and then commence to give me a sound
whipping.  Too bad I love wine! -- Dedalus (who should be known as Dud-a-lus!)

Leonovan -- I was just lucky! -- Bottom Feeder

Iron Judgement -- I think that was the first time I've ever sullied myself! -- The
Unsullied (Ghost of)

All -- I should be active over here for a while, so I'll be looking forward to
everyone's challenges. (grin) -- Toker, mgr. Vincere Aut Mori (293)

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.
