                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly OSKSI games.  HAPPY APPLE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested VENOMOUS CONCUBINE and was 
awarded 6 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DANGEROUS 
CRIMINAL put down DOMINO JOE, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the 
process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail YATZEE, 
Duelmaster of OSKSI!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in OSKSI seem 
to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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

Flagpole Panties -- My dear boy, as a token of how highly we all think of you, we
join in prayers that you graduate SOON. -- Hearts

The Ambitious Guard let me in on his secret.  He's studying to be a practice dummy.
He's got the "dummy" part down well already. -- Domino Joe

I feel no remorse.  If that Mercenary were a TRUE Veteran, he would have known better
than to volunteer to fight in the arena.  Sweep streets, if work to eat is needed,
but never again give someone a chance to attack you with real weapons. -- Yatzee

Fratsfa Slave?  Bah.  Worthless. -- Sharan Khor

26 May 2006
     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
