                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome DAYLA KIV.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with DARTS?  It 
actually beat SAND DANCERS' TELGAN TEN VORH, and walked away with 23 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at GAMES CRIP PLAYS while they watched DARTS clobber 
TELGAN TEN VORH.  He lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Another fighter (CAT STEVENS 11-5-0) challenged another Duelmaster (GARMON 
CHANG 18-15-0).  Life goes on.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for ARENA FELINES' 
outstanding member, Duelmaster CAT STEVENS.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live 
subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  DAYLA KIV thinks HUNTERS 
& PREY and their 16-22-2 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In 
my day, no team with a 16-22-2 would scare me off!  What's the problem, GAMES CRIP 
PLAYS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, KORBA KLEE! 
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  SPALDING of CORPS knows how 
to pick 'em.  He challenged KORBA KLEE of SAND DANCERS who is up by 19.  Now was this 
a wise move?  SPALDING perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he subdued KORBA KLEE 
and ended up with 86 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  So CORPS sent MARY KAY to the Dark Arena.  Big deal.  Plenty 
more fighters where MARY KAY came from.  Dime a dozen...  Now, Spyreporters...  
Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

All -- Welp Raging is off to the Isle.  Hopefully I can bring a few more TV's to this
arena after preparing for awhile.  I leave here with 1 TC to honor our sands.  My
strengths and weakness's were: 16(+1)-6-5-17-21-9-11, +2 Init, HI/VL, SH<--Ugh!
Started in the arena 0-3 and ran the table after that for a record of 13-3.  I have a
few brothers that will be fighting here occasionally preparing for tournaments that
are very good in their own right.  Hopefully Gemstone Creations can continue to bring
tournament victories to this arena. -- Raging Pyrothag and Tripwire, The Iron Council

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!
