                             Notes from the arena champ.

Unless somebody can step up to the plate here, it looks like I might run the table
until I graduate.  Which just means I get to retire quicker.  That's fine by me!! --

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for JURINE.  MVP award for SCYTHE?  BLADES OF 
TERROR's proud of him after beating KETA and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  MIKAI ABADOS' match with SLY SERVAL cost him a loss of 8 points!  Like, 
ROBESPIERRE must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from FEAR FACTORY.  
Does this guy have a death wish or what!  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome ROBESPIERRE.  Aren't BLADES OF 
TERROR proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said JURINE's Duelmaster was paying 
for drinks at The Warty Toad?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  ARENA FELINES was JURINE's most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  I don't know what BLADES OF TERROR's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from ARENA FELINES, that's fer sher.  
Like, is DREEN SELJIN popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of JURINE! 
He's got a 5-7-0, is that good?  Ooh!  Did GUILLOTINE really know what he was doing 
when he challenged CHILLILI CHES?  A 6-5-0 speaks volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  I 
don't know what it means.) GUILLOTINE lost to CHILLILI CHES, but he got 2 points.  
CHILLILI CHES won, and got 2 points.  I don't get it.  I'm not so sure STEATOPYGOUS 
knew all the facts when she challenged PAWS of ARENA FELINES.  I saw STEATOPYGOUS 
stumbling and dribbling at The Warty Toad last week...  What did STEATOPYGOUS expect, 
anyway!  Of course PAWS won.  Next time stick to people you have a chance against, 
dummy!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Randy -- I'm no good without my weapon.  And the back up wasn't much better. --
Xander Haxan

Chillili Chess -- Well, I thought that was my favorite weapon.  Now I'm not so sure.
I know it wasn't your favorite weapon. -- Shivaree Sjden

Kjarran Hammer -- Our Lord Kjarran is not pleased with you.  You take His name but
you have yet to make a sacrifice to Him.  There is always the Dark Arena. --
Steatopygous

Philanthropist -- Welcome to Jurine. -- Noachian, mgr. Blade And Blood.

Pitspawn Fouldog -- Phfauwgh!  You really REALLY need a bath. -- Keta

Shivaree Sjden -- Maybe warmer clothes? -- Chillili Ches
P.S.  The belly-dancer costume just doesn't WORK for this weather, even if you are a
golem.  Which, of course, you are.  I didn't mean to indicate doubt of THAT.  Just of
the wisdom of your costume.

Xander Haxan -- They're so unsympathetic in the Infirmary!  "Patched up and sent
home."  Bah.  Not even checking to make sure there would be someone around to bring
you a glass of water and fluff your pillows!  I don't call that "good medical
practice." -- Randy

Sly Serval -- You just came out, screeched and jumped, and started sharpening your
claws on me.  I don't call that sly. -- Dreen Seljin

Stupid thief. -- Laelkorissa

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.
