                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
OSKSI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see YATZEE win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ANDY 
SISCO beat TARHELLA VHU and TARHELLA VHU lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, OSKSI may be getting bland, as BLACK WIDOW stays 
top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you 
this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, OSKSI?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
MISTRESS 4 XMAS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like FRAT PARTY 
BLOWOUT avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask 
me.  Hmph.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the OSKSI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Black Widow -- Oh, well DONE, my dear!  I'm sure you are very deserving of the
eminence you have achieved. -- Hearts
P.S.  And it is terribly exciting to meet you!  Tell me, do you REALLY bite men, and
is it FUN?  I am all agog to hear!

I turn out, at great personal in convenience and a totally indecent hour, and all
that can be found to meet me is the Mordant Deserter?  This is WRETCHED. -- Sharan
Khor

The trouble with Cult Members is they don't know anything useful.  Not a single
thing. -- Domino Joe

I might as well laugh at the Mordant Deserter, a laugh is always good, and he's no
use for anything else. -- Yatzee

I feel that Convicted Thieves should be torn limb from limb, but it would appear that
the arenamaster, a soft-headed wimp, disagrees.  Bah. -- Tarhella Vhu
