                                      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.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, FRAT PARTY 
BLOWOUT's 1st moved them up to 5-0-0 place.  What's with DRUNK DENNIS?  He actually 
beat OSKSI's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at GAMES LIBRARY.  LORINS PELN lost 9 points to RIGATONI.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LORINS PELN will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure 
OSKSI is excited about DOMINO JOE, the new Duelmaster from GAMES LIBRARY.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 
PASTA ain't reelin'!  FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT's mad!  What do people see in GRUNT?  His 
6-1-0?  OUR HIGHEST HONOR ain't talkin', but he's got 37 points.  GRUNT didn't quite 
know what to make of a challenge he received from PENNE of PASTA, who is 24 points 
below him.  PENNE perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was subdued by GRUNT 
and ended up with 6 recognition points.   
     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

Rigatoni -- Pasta... yes, there is appeal in that.  I could eat pasta today.  Of
course, I'd regret it afterward, but we golems, you know, are "live for the moment"
types.  It's logic. -- Maur Tolidar

Penne -- Well, listen!  I mean, look!  I like my pasta REALLY flat.  You have to
conform. -- Delon Lurost

Soldier #1 -- Ah, you have lifted a burden from me.  Thank you. -- Domino Joe #1

Soldier #4 -- I didn't realize that you four-armed types were allowed in the arena.
It's enough a person reel. -- Lorins Peln

Grunt -- No, I will not.  I can do better than that, even if YOU can't.  I have a
complete language. -- Timaurn Voth
