                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
VALAMANTIS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Coming up with a solid 2-3-0 outing, SRETSAMLEUD has advanced 3 places in the 
rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for ERFIN GORAM, who flew up 25 points in the 
rankings after mashing SILLI like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was SILLI, who dropped 22 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with ERFIN GORAM.  Going for the gusto and coming up with 
aught but bloody knuckles was MIDDLE WAY 10's DANA FRISS, who was turned away from 
the Duelmastership by DIED.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day 
keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that THE BEARS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of THE BEARS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who 
like math, try this one:  THE BEARS + Weapons That go Boom = SRETSAMLEUD + Avoid 
City.  And who is this GOOD BEAR you ask, with 53 points and a 8-3-0 record.  Ooh, 
the tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the VALAMANTIS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya 
bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Troglin -- I don't believe I've ever seen an uglier golem.  Er, you don't mind if I
mention that?  Were you designed with the philanthropic purpose of making plain
people feel better about their looks?  Because if so, it works.  ANYONE looking at
you would know he or she wasn't all that bad looking after all. -- Erfin Goram

Died -- Is that "deid" spelled backward, or do you have a problem with your manager?
Talk about dangerous names!  You could be in, as they say, a world of hurt here. --
Eb Gollu, never gonna fight again and happy about it

The Userous Merchant tried to charge me for the skills he taught, but I told him his
fee was not getting killed in the process, and if he didn't like that, I'd take it
back.  Shut him right up. -- Dana Friss
P.S.  And it wasn't JUST because I had a sword in my hand as I said it, either.

We need a better class of Fratsfa Slaves.  This one's pathetic. -- Chia Edel
P.S.  At least, in the arena he is.

Yeah, well, we also need a better class of Dangerous Criminals.  As in, less
dangerous.  Of all the standbys, this is the one I least like to be matched against.
-- Bali Darras

Memsettis the Downtrodden -- Thanks for the advice.  Since I have no desire to
struggle with the ghosts of Folstrom Past, I will take that advice and depart with
it.  Somewhere way, way down south, sun, sand, surf, palm trees, and Debby Tonte
sipping a drink with an umbrella in it, that's the life for me! -- LP Eb Gollu

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.
