                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, I am  back again!  And it looks like I won't be graduating AGAIN!  This is
great, I am going to try to fight in Challengers during the spring mailer and see how
I do against all the scum.  I normally carve them up like spring chickens but we will
have to see.

Chessara, I wasn't trying to make it a death match honest!  My face just always looks
vicious like that.

Raging Pyrothag

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of DAYLA KIV!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  DAYLA KIV watched with 
glee as CORPS got knocked off top spot by SAND DANCERS!  What's with WARCLAW?  He 
actually beat ARENA FELINES' POLE CAT, and walked away with 15 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at HUNTERS & PREY while they watched WARCLAW clobber POLE 
CAT.  He lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Har har 
har!  Did RAGING PYROTHAG wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, he's not Duelmaster 
anymore.  I'm sure DAYLA KIV is excited about CHESSARA, the new Duelmaster from SAND 
DANCERS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want 
to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  DAYLA KIV thinks ARENA 
FELINES and their 36-28-1 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
The bums at CORPS couldn't face the challenges from ARENA FELINES!  No excuse for 
that!  What do people see in TIRGU JIU?  His 2-5-0?  HUNTERS & PREY ain't talkin', 
but he's got 11 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
DAYLA KIV is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

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.
