                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of OSKSI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SOLDIER #1 caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 21 
points in recognition.  The city has turned out in honor of OTIS, for with his arena 
victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  No confirmation, 
but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In OSKSI "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from 
those below.  HEARTS take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in OSKSI.  For 
some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how OTIS 
of FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT challenged down 18 points to YATZEE.  All the city knows the 
duel went in favor of OTIS.  I shall not fail to spread the word in other cities of 
this "mighty" victory.  ETERNAL D.J. must really be harboring a grudge against the 
GAMES LIBRARY guild!  Merciless, 27 challenged down HEARTS points this week to duel 
with he.  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as HEARTS was subdued by 
ETERNAL D.J..  Is this what passes for courage in OSKSI?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  OTIS has sworn to take up religion upon living to 
tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle 
walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--
