                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JADE MOUNTAIN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Ya gotta be quick 
on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  HUE AND 
CRY is now ranked 2nd with a 4-0-1 turn.  Har har har!  Did FOOTSTEPS wimp out, or 
just get lazy?  Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore.  I'm sure JADE MOUNTAIN is 
excited about SHORT ROCK, the new Duelmaster from SAND DANCERS.  (remember?)  But 
when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, SERNILLAN!  Don't make 
idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  DONAL PINES didn't quite know what to 
make of a challenge he received from SAMURAI of I AM SAM, who is 18 points below him. 
SAMURAI perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he overcame DONAL PINES and ended up 
with 52 recognition points.   
     Warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  SERNILLAN 
was plum wore out after ZAGWE BANSHEE pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  SAND 
DANCERS'll have to get a little better before going after ZAGWE BANSHEE again!  Many 
a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!  
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Footsteps -- (shivering)  I thought you were coming to GET me, and I just couldn't
face it. -- Donal Pines
P.S.  Good work.

Standbys. -- Short Rock

Hue and Cry -- Dammit, Sernillan is a total parry!  He shouldn't have wanted to do
that, much less be able to.  Whack him a good one. -- Li Dan

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.
