                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out OSKSI to see 
what's new.  MVP award for BLACK WIDOW?  MISTRESS 4 XMAS' proud of her after beating 
ALFJAR and getting 33 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  ALFJAR's match with 
BLACK WIDOW cost him a loss of 13 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think SAGA should let M. CHARDINEE be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours 
sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of AESIR must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  I don't know what VEGGIES' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting 
many fights from AESIR, that's fer sher.  Like, is THE GOALIE popular, or what?  He 
was challenged the most in all of OSKSI!  He's got a 12-45-0, is that good?  For 
sure, I was holding my breath when I found out SMOKEY challenged THE GOALIE.  After 
all, haven't 23RD & WESTON and GAMES LIBRARY had a long standing duel in OSKSI?  It 
wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but THE GOALIE wants me to write about it 
since he was subdued by SMOKEY.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Everyone has problems, but why did AESIR 
send HULDRA to the Dark Arena?  She had a 3-1-0, and I thought she looked neat on the 
sands...  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  OSKSI is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Squash -- You...you VEGETABLE!  You soft-shelled cousin to a GOURD!  You undergrown
PUMPKIN!  How DARE you do that to me?  That was distinctly... NOT Hoyle!
P.S.  Of course, who would expect a squash to act the gentleman, in the arena or
anywhere?  Too plebian.

Sunburn -- Ma'am, I've been suspicious of you for some time, and now I've GOT it.
PROOF!  I put that sunscreen on with a trowel (and very awkward it was, too, some of
the spots I was trying to cover), and you blasted right THROUGH it.  You can no
longer pass yourself off as an ordinary sunburn.  Nope, you're magically powered.
And I warn you, that is skirting very close to the prohibition on the use of magic in
the arena.  There will be HECK to pay for this.  Take my advice, which is offered out
of nothing but true good will, and get out of Osksi while you still can! -- The
Goalie

Sand Crawler -- You've got to give that up, dear boy.  Have you seen what it does to
the knees of your pants?  This sort of thing is TERRIBLY HARD to mend, especially if
you keep on doing it.  I'm sure your mother would agree with me when I urge you to
STAND UP and spare your poor jeans. -- Hearts

Kraki -- You're not supposed to step in front of my knife when I flip it, dummy.  But
then again, if you're hide-bound determined to, who am I to deny you, eh? -- Mumbledy
Peg
P.S.  Actually, I don't meet many formidable foes in the bathtub.  Just my three-
year-old nephew.
P.P.S.  Of course, he's plenty....

Huldra -- I love fiery redheads!  If you promise not to try to hit me, I'll buy you a
doughnut.  Maybe even a glass of milk to go with it.  What do you think?  Is it a
date? -- Pencil Neck the nervous

20 April 2005
I have returned after a five-year absence.  I expect all tithes, gifts and bequeaths
to resume as normal. -- Magic Man

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used

         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!
