                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Who has Concubines around here, that there's a Virginal one for the arena?  Or
is it some kind of stupid joke, because this concubine is a guy.

                                     Roadblock

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome AMEN-TEI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Ya gotta be quick on 
yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  THE SUN CULT 
is now ranked 2nd with a 5-0-1 turn.  What's with AIRAVATA?  She actually beat 
AMEN-TEI's SHIFTYEYED VOLUNTEER, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at COLOURED PEOPLE while they watched MEAN JOE GREEN clobber TOM-TOM 
TORA.  She lost 8 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
KHALHUMS DWARF was reminded on the sands why ROADBLOCK is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, EMPIRE OF THE SUN!  
In my day, no team with a 53-36-2 would scare me off!  What's the problem, COLOURED 
PEOPLE?   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Cheese Loueeze -- You had me worried there for a bit.  But the sun was out and I was
able to regain my strength and the initiative and the victory.  Blessed be the
glorious Sun and all the warmth it brings us. -- Bresal Basalt

Greetings Amen-Tei -- We hear the Sun shines brightly here in this fine city.  We've
come to enjoy the sunshine and perhaps enlighten you all on the True Path to Glory.
There is only one way to achieve greatness.  One must follow the Path of our Lord,
Kjarran.  He is the One True God, the God of All.  All other gods are false!  Do not
waste your time with them.  Join us on this path to greatness.  Surrender yourself to
Kjarran and become a Servant. -- Noachian, mgr. The Sun Cult, Servant of Kjarran

Veteran Mercenary.  Right.  A thrilling, tough opponent.  Well, actually, if you get
him in the tavern in a drinking contest...tough!  He tells good stories, too. --
Bouncing Bea

Virginal Gigolo? -- Hitch Hiker

Furtive Returns II -- Furtive doesn't cut it.  You need to be bold. -- Tom-Tom Tora

I will never understand the Happy Peasant. -- Avalanch Lily
P.S.  Not that a peasant can be happy, I understand THAT part.  But that he can
continue to be happy while fighting in the arena.  That's weird.

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.
