                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in OSKSI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with THE CONTENDER?  He 
actually beat OUR HIGHEST HONOR's SOLDIER #4, and walked away with 14 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at OUR HIGHEST HONOR.  SOLDIER #4 lost 10 points to 
THE CONTENDER.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SOLDIER #4 will provide more 
easy wins...  See how the Duelmaster challenged GAMES LIBRARY's YATZEE?  That sort of 
initiative is how he got where he is now.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for 
GAMES LIBRARY's outstanding member, Duelmaster YATZEE.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, HEARTS!  Don't make 
idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  Fighting is a better craft than 
farming, SHARAN KHOR, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by OTIS, 43 
points above you, is dues.  OTIS beat SHARAN KHOR.  FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT calls this 
fighting?  In my day...  Taunt your opponent HEARTS!  That was my lucky charm when I 
was unfairly challenged.  (and by 27 points!)  ETERNAL D.J. should have an easy win.  
I have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, ETERNAL D.J.!  He can't set himself 
up in a real match.  I was sorry to see HEARTS lose.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Otis -- What ho. -- Yatzee
P.S.  You expected more?  In Osksi?  Not at all likely, you know.

Eternal D.J. -- My dear boy, you are destined for early and total failure, for you
seem unable to talk!  How can you be a D.J. if you cannot talk?  It is a mystery to
all that you have lasted so long. -- Hearts

Otis -- I didn't sign up to fight dopplegangers.  Whichever one you are, begone. --
Sharan Khor

And a gentle encounter with M. Chardinee.  I am so thrilled. -- Domino Joe

30 June 2006
All -- I am looking for able bodied warriors, magic-wielding wizards, faith-healing
clerics, and quick-handed thieves to begin a quest requested by the Emperor of the
Southern Kingdom of Crailmia.  All interested parties can diplo me in arena 93 --
Noblish Island, c/o Will-O-Wisps (1422) or write to me at -- Robert Bennett, 317173,
4269 West M-80, Kincheloe, Mi 49784. -- the Lightbearer, mgr. Will-O-Wisps

1 July 2006
BROTHER KNIGHTS OF THE DESOLATE EMPIRE -- Hail brothers where ever you are to be
found!  We are engaging in arena 31.  Let them feel our wrath.  Onward to glory!!! --
Dark knight Blackstorm

1 July 2006
Soultaker -- Read your e-mail! -- Guardian

10 July 2006
The Dark Knights sat at the Dark Table with grim faces.  All present knew that there
could be no quarter.  The Forces of Desolation would be unleashed.  There would be no
turning back, no mercy and no hesitation to do what was necessary.  Teeth gritted and
knuckles whitened with fury as the IMPERIAL PROCLAMATION was signed by each Dark
Knight.
     AS OF JULY 1, 2006 -- WAR IS DECLARED ON THE ALLIANCE KNOWN AS THE VENDETTA
CARTEL.
     The Desolate Empire -- Dark Knights:  Ancient Creep, Blackstorm, Dok Sik, Goat,
Heathen, Hatebred, Kon, Osiris, Toker, Wasby the Great

14 July 2006
In response to the Desolate Empire's declaration of war, the Vendetta Cartel offers
the following response:

The members of the Vendetta Cartel can be found in 1, 8, 9, 10,  11, 14, 22, 25, 28,
31, 39, 45, 47, 50, 52, 54, 59, 60, 100, and 106.  Stop yapping in the all-arena ads,
pick an arena, issue a challenge, actually win something, and then maybe (and we
stress maybe) you may speak.  You may come to our home arenas (8, 31, and 47) and
confront us, but we suggest you learn to win in your own "home" arena (52) first.
