                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in OSKSI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with HEARTS?  She actually 
beat OSKSI's THE USEROUS MERCHANT, and walked away with 16 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at GAMES LIBRARY.  MUMBLEDY PEG lost 8 points to HODUR.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MUMBLEDY PEG will provide more easy wins...  M. 
CHARDINEE was reminded on the sands why NOT HOYLE is Duelmaster.  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.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  PENCIL NECK, with its forgettable 5-6-0,  was dispatched by 
GWENNOLAS in a forgettable match.  GAMES LIBRARY didn't seem to mind very much.  Is 
it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
OSKSI is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

I am in the process of moving house, and spotlight writing for the next two months
will be very hit-and-miss. -- the Scribe

27 June 2005
ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
