                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ERINIKA a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, ENDU ENDU fought 
KHALHUMS DWARF and gained 15 points and contributed to DUDS' 4-0-0.  DIAMOND EAR RING 
has lost to FRISBEE, falling 3 points, while helping make FAMILY JEWELS a 0-4-0 turn. 
Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, APPLE DANISH has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  We should ask ENDU ENDU about the thrill of victory, and what 
being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Can someone 
confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at 
The Dripping Blade until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the WORLDWIDE GORE 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ERINIKA, what are you afraid of? 
And guess who avoided WORLDWIDE GORE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
FAMILY JEWELS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that PEARL NECKLACE 
from FAMILY JEWELS was ERINIKA's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that ERINIKA has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ERINIKA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in ERINIKA again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

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

6 May 2006
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!

26 May 2006
     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!
