                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly OSKSI games.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record 
which OUR HIGHEST HONOR managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record 
will draw challengers!  FINCH'S ART caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested SOLDIER #4 and was awarded 20 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put down BIG 
BROTHER, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Although DOMINO 
JOE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
SOLDIER #1.  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!  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it 
but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after DELON LUROST.  Watch your 
back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Otis 3 -- Drat.  This wasn't what I wanted to see this morning.  Could we do it over
again with a different result?  No, no, of course not, what am I thinking?  The
result would be just the same.  It must be the blow to the head scrambling my brains.
-- Maur Tolidar #1, reeling off in search of almost anything

Soldier #1 -- Drat, also.  I hadn't saved back anything with a single spot on it.
Nothing but threes, fours, and a double six.  Royally scr-- skunked.  Oh, well.
Another day, another domino. -- Domino Joe #2

Soldier #3 -- I told Nick that we needed numbers if we were going to win fights here,
but he didn't believe me.  Then.  Maybe now he will. -- Timaurn Voth #7

Jungle Juice -- Ack!  Remind me never to try to drink a jungle again.  That is AWFUL,
and it took the enamel right off my armor, too.  Gods, it's lethal. -- Delon Lurost
#8

Soldier 2 -- I thought the two in your name meant you only got to strike two blows.
Guess I was wrong, which is the pits.  I had hoped.... -- Lorins Peln #5

Drunk Dennis -- That was unnecessary!  You could've just said "No," you know. --
Ghost of a too-Persistent Beggar

Grunt -- Hmm, not bad.  They say it takes an orc to REALLY grunt, although this is
plainly false.  But you weren't bad. -- a Mordanti Refugee

Freak Show -- You're just jealous because I'm taller and better looking than you are.
-- a Fratsfa Slave asking for trouble but not caring today

Big Brother -- I thank the gods you aren't a member of MY family. -- Taldo Belansamo,
Veteran Mercenary

Soldier 2 -- Enjoy it while it lasts, turkey. -- the Third Orc
P.S.  Which one are you?

24 January 2007
The Council of Lords would like to propose a rule change in ADM and Primus.  We
propose that Lord Protectors ranked "Grand Champions" and below (ADM) and "The Tower
Guard" and below (Primus) be allowed to fight in the Dark Arena.  This would not
impact the top rankings or title match.  Any managers who never got his fill or shot
at fighting Gateway monsters would have it as an option.  We believe it might spark
some interest in the ADM/Primus realm for some managers.  If interested, speak up in
the newsletters or on forums under the "rules changes" thread and let RSI know.  This
could even be something to try for 12 months and then be re-evaluated.  What say you,
managers of Ghea? -- The Icelord sends....
