                                      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 FRAT PARTY 
BLOWOUT left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by GAMES 
LIBRARY.  Good show!  GAMES LIBRARY had cause to celebrate, after SHARAN KHOR got 16 
points by beating AMBITIOUS GUARD.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 6 points to ETERNAL D.J..  (Discrete enough, YATZEE?) 
BLACK WIDOW successfully staved off a grab for the roses by FLAGPOLE PANTIES of FRAT 
PARTY BLOWOUT.  Does OSKSI have no one talented enough to dethrone her?  So who's the 
team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR 
stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are OSKSI's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the warriors 
of BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided 
team...  The warriors of BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES found their efforts at combat frustrated 
as FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Is it 
charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, 
DOMINO JOE is the most challenged warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  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.  More important duties call me.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Happy Apple -- I'm terribly glad for you, dear boy.  To be happy is a wonderful gift.
I hope you are cherishing it!  And passing it along to anyone you meet.  Remember,
happiness shared is happiness shared. -- Hearts

Eternal D.J. -- I don't see how you stand it.  Like elevator music only louder. --
Domino Joe

I would think there HERE, actually IN Osksi, our Osksi Noble would be...well, not a
dwarf.  It seems odd. -- Sharan Khor
P.S.  Probably part of a PLOT.

That fellow MAY be a dangerous criminal, but I WILL NOT believe that he's a dwarf.
Six-foot-two?  Ridiculous. -- Yatzee
P.S.  I shortened him as much as I could before the arenamaster stepped in.

Andy Sisco -- That buzzing drives me nuts.  I wish you wouldn't do it. -- Tarhella
Vhu
P.S.  Besides, it makes me think of, well, I won't say what exactly, lest the saying
of the name attract them, as it has been wont to do, but a very nasty sort of demonic
monster that is known to buzz.

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to announce with glad hearts that Heathen
Hatebred is no longer just a friend, but also an alliance-mate.  Heathen brings a lot

freely! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

The Olympics have arrived!

The Mordanti Olympics, having been gone for six years, have returned to the Mordanti
Alliance, sponsored by Amicitia Primoris.  Teams have competed against each other for
recognition and notoriety four times in the past.  It is far past time for the fifth
Mordanti Olympics to be held.  The Mordanti Olympics shall be held in the Mordant
arena (DM-1) from May 1st (T544) through Oct 30 (T557).  There will be a
'registration period' lasting until T543, where teams will be allowed to register by
activating in Mordant and declaring their participation in the personals.  Rules will
be posted in the Mordant arena (DM-1) newsletter no later than T543, but shall be
available online before then.  An announcement will be made as to where they will be
posted.  Prizes will be awarded to the winners.
