                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of OSKSI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT was 
unseated this week as GAMES LIBRARY moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-2 record for the round.  HEARTS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested PETE HARNISCH and was awarded 25 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HEARTS put down PETE HARNISCH, 
causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, BUD SMITH has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This 
time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail HEARTS, Duelmaster of OSKSI! 
Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole 
city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In OSKSI "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this 
week's challenge seeking began.  FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT is feared.  This much I can say.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT.  Indeed it was BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES.  Loose 
talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many 
fighters are after DOMINO JOE.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in OSKSI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Eternal D.J. -- Ah, it's a kind of hell, yes?  Meaningless noise without end or
buffer.  (shudder)  Horrible. -- Yatzee

Andy Sisco -- Take that and parkit on your balcony, eh? -- Domino Joe

David Cone -- Oh, my DEAR boy, I can SEE why you became a gladiator.  But surely if
you got a tall hat, you could hide it? -- Hearts

mouthpieces for the Dark Forces. -- Sharan Khor

I will have no mercy on an embezzler.  He preys upon the unwary, which is, of
