                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of OSKSI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT was 
unseated this week as GAMES LIBRARY moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  KELSEY BONE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested SOLDIER 1 and was awarded 21 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MAGIC MARKER put down 
PLENETTE PIERSON, causing her to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Due 
to his absence and inability to defend the throne, DUDE 5 has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail THE BELL, 
Duelmaster of OSKSI!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels 
this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  OSKSI, city of gladiators!  Mighty 
among the names of thy guilds is GENERATION X, a guild shunned and avoided by many in 
the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of AESIR are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My hearty congratulations KELSEY BONE, 
for thy revenge upon SOLDIER 1, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know 
better, eh?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is 
only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in OSKSI as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Soldier 1 -- Okay, reckon that makes the decision about keeping Toni easy.  You will
be bloodfueded by one of my replacements so teach her well. -- Coach

Dude 5 -- Well, at least I didn't lose in a scum down.  Nice fight sir, well done. --
Jury Duty

Two-three, which is a bit of a surprise.  We'd expected worse, you know.  Something
to punish us for that five-oh last time.  But we'll take it! -- Hop Scotch

Sandraudiga -- You aren't a dwarf.  Dwarfs are my specialty, how can I do not-dwarfs?
-- Dwart Tosser

Sfc 12 -- (pouting) -- Tiddlywinks
P.S.  How could I possibly have won that?  Unless... maybe if I had the cooks poison
you the day before?

Canoe Race -- In this weather?  Perish the thought! -- Hop Scotch

Magic Tape -- Magic how?  What's special about it?  Inquiring minds are fascinated!
-- Scramble

Frigga -- Are you a dark-elf or something?  Very exotic!  I kind of like it, you
know? -- Farolzen Varu
P.S.  They got my race wrong, of course.  I'm Ondarik.  Though I suppose I could be a
half-elven Ondarik.  That might be cool.
