                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
AMEN-TEI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, THE SUN CULT, since 
COLOURED PEOPLE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  COLOURED 
PEOPLE turned their 2-0-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any 
better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see MEAN JOE GREEN win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
KUNG-FU MASTER beat BOUNCING BEA and BOUNCING BEA lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, SABURO SAKAI has lost the 
Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, 
in with the new, as MEAN JOE GREEN takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the 
old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling 
you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, AMEN-TEI?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
AMEN-TEI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  SUPERIOR FORCES 5405 the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like COLOURED 
PEOPLE avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask 
me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, ROADBLOCK was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the AMEN-TEI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of AMEN-TEI.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.

All -- I've seen what's on the forum.  So I'm prey, am I, Max.  You and all your
devious buddies will become my prey, even those I thought okay.  I don't have to
explain anything I do, much like yourselves so bring it on.  Feel free to come over
to 31 for a thrashing.  Oh, by the way, I am also in a new alliance.  They tend to
share my sentiments about the VC.  If they follow me or not, we will see; I'm not at
liberty to talk for them.  The VC may be on their last stand!!!! -- Blackstorm

The 2006 Mordanti Alliance Olympics are off to a grand start!  With seventeen teams
declared, running under eight different flags (not to mention six additional non-
Olympic teams present), it is looking to be as tough as any previous Olympiad, if not
more!  Olympians petitioned the Commission to make an allowance for late entries, and
the Commission agreed, and will allow new entrants to partake, as long as they are
active by Round 3 (T546, due May 29th).  So if you wish to enter, please email your
intentions to amicitia@gwi.net with team name, manager name, and affiliation
(alliance name or independent), or show up in Mordant (DM-1) on, or before, May 29th
and place your declarations in the newsletter!
