                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of OSKSI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at VEGGIES 
left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by AESIR.  Good show! 
LEFTISTS BLOW successfully staved off a grab for the roses by BRUENOR of AESIR.  Does 
OSKSI have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in OSKSI is 
taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of AESIR, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of AESIR found their efforts at combat frustrated as VEGGIES apparently had 
more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
DEWEY is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't GAMES LIBRARY proud!  GREEN 
BEAN challenged DEWEY!  Who says VEGGIES are just a bunch of wimps!  GREEN BEAN of 
VEGGIES kept his wits as he beat DEWEY.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

                                     PERSONAL ADS

My family and I are moving from Colorado to Northern Virginia.  I may miss a couple
of turns but I'll be back.  Also, as I'll be on the East Coast rather than the West
Coast I will attend the Summer FTF in 2005, I will NOT attend the Winter FTF in
Phoenix.  I hope to see some of you next year and meet those I've not seen in
Phoenix. -- Shocking Toad
P.S.  I vote for a Washington D.C. Summer FTF in 2005.

Not Hoyle -- I was wrong.  I apologize.  You're not cheap.  Read my next ad. --
Carrot

Gomer -- YOU are cheap!  We fight a great fight for more than 2 full minutes and you
only teach me one lousy skill!  And one that is completely worstly for my fighting
style!  You should be ashamed of yourself.  As you see, I am far less stingy in what
I'm willing to teach a guy, even an old guy like you. -- Carrot (who isn't the
slightest bit upset about losing his perfect record--it was overdue)

Not Hoyle -- Thanks for the help preparing me for the tourney. -- Green Bean

Dewey -- While I'm certainly not aware of every game, Nick's library has been pretty
obvious to me in the past.  You however, are a mystery.  One which I hope my Green
Bean will unravel. -- Assur

Green Bean -- Ack!  (shudder)  Nonononono!  Anything but that!  Veggies in general
are Bad, but beans, especially GREEN beans, are definitely... Not Hoyle

Leftists Blow -- If you insist.  But I'm going to file BOTH sides under the 800s.
Fiction.  Maybe even Fantasy. -- Dewey

Squash -- (aggrieved look)  Here was, all set to deal with things as a Jolly Green
Giant, and what do I get?  A YELLOW vegetable!  So then I tried to follow through on
your name and squash you flat, and what happens?  Splat!  Squash seeds in my face.
There'd better be some CHANGES around here, because there may be a joke, but *I* am
not the one who's laughing. -- Joker

Wybjorn -- Gods, you just HAD to do that, didn't you?  Nick's twice-yearly team
assessment, and you just HAD to make me look bad!  He's talking about sending me to
the Dark Arena!  And it's YOUR fault. -- The Goalie

Aegis -- I thought that was a Greek thing.  Athena's shield or something?  Either
that, or somebody with a very rural dialect talking about the Stone, Bronze, and Iron
Aegis.  You know.  History.  If it isn't mythology. -- Hearts

Assur -- Was I whining?  Sorry.  It's being one of those seasons.  Although for a
change, I'm having more problems with Andorian managers.  Ah, well, I have been
driven to the point of making actual strategy changes, and I hope everyone enjoys
them.  I don't say it'll make my warriors better, some of them are seriously
worthless, but at least they'll be different. -- Nick

Our congratulations to Twitch on the even of his ascension.  Blow 'em up on the Isle,
boy! -- Nick and Games Library
