                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, OSKSI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, I WANT YOU, since GAMES 
LIBRARY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see KING'S PAWN win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, SCRAMBLE beat HONEY and HONEY lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
BRIANN JANUARY TV challenged THE BELL for OSKSI's Title this turn, and guess what 
happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, OSKSI may be getting bland, as BRIANN 
JANUARY stays top dog in the city.  The Elefont, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From OSKSI's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  OSKSI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
AESIR the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led 
the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was FRAT 
PARTY BLOWOUT.  Ha ha ha ha!  HOP SCOTCH was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I suspect either a 21 
will or a 21 ego on this one, but GYLFI has challenged up by 27 in an attempt against 
CRACKED BELL.  But here's a pretty tale--GYLFI did lose the fight, but gained 2 worth 
of recognition.  Some long shots can pay off, I guess.  I notice JENNIFER LACY 
challenging down 20 points to fight CULTURE NIGHT, HOOPS & HIPS doubtless has some 
rotten excuse for such an insult to honor.  Question now is, will OSKSI accept this 
sort of tacky behavior?  JENNIFER LACY beating CULTURE NIGHT.  The insult, 
the....yech!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in OSKSI to get a drink than The Elefont!  Any 
suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off 
like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Only three to the Dark Arena this time.  Much better.  Not GOOD, but better.

Back and forth, back and forth.  At the risk of sounding like Olaf Modeen, I have to
say we go up and down.  This time, one-four.  It's annoying. -- Scramble the ever-
