                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly AMEN-TEI games.  TOM-TOM TORA caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested FURTIVE RETURNS II and was 
awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, VIRGINAL 
CONCUBINE put down HITCH HIKER, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the 
process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, SABURO SAKAI has 
lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of ROADBLOCK, for 
with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  WAYFARERS 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 WAYFARERS.  Indeed it was UN.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some guilds are strict but few are as heartless as UN.  Witness, 
last turn they sent DERSTAND, a 3-1-0 fighter, to the Dark Arena!  Dark alleys may 
hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel. 
Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in AMEN-TEI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Couth -- But not so lacking in it, couth, that is, that you would beat up a poor
defenseless orcess such as myself.  That would have been truly uncouth.  Not to
mention (striking a pose) a waste of assets. -- Tom-Tom Tora

Saburo Sakai -- "Touche"?  You DARE to say that to me?  Of all the nerve!  Gosh. --
Hitch Hiker
P.S.  Better you to neglect the column than me.
P.P.S.  And you're a couple of handsful on the sands.

Shinden-Kai -- Not that way!  Go around, go around, go the other way. -- Roadblock
P.S.  Although I do not, myself, see much point in going anywhere at all.

Khalhums Dwarf -- Ah, no doubt you were concerned over the rumors coming out of the
mountains.  Beasts in the caves, battles in the tunnels, that sort of thing.  It's
enough to put anyone off a stroke. -- Bouncing Bea

Mean Joe Green -- With your red hair, you are a SIGHT.  You'd make an eye sore just
looking at you. -- Avalanch Lily, temporarily blinded

Ed. -- Hmm, sounds intriguing.  I wonder if I could wear them to watch all the
fights, and just see the skills, not the gore? -- Roadblock

     You could try.  I don't think there are any guarantees attached to the glasses
     though. -- Ed.

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.
