                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of OSKSI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  My praise to OUR HIGHEST HONOR for their 
4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  FREAK SHOW caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested VENOMOUS CONCUBINE and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, JUNGLE JUICE put down IRON MAIDEN, causing him 
to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has SOLDIER #3 in 
the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat 
skill yet again.  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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  GAMES LIBRARY is feared.  This 
much I can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of PASTA last week.  Busy avoiding GAMES LIBRARY?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
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

Spaghetti -- You're all tangled up!  I've never seen macaroni tied in knots like
that.  In fact, you look like... euwh!  A bowl of worms!  I've NEVER like worms, I
don't care WHAT kind of sauce you use on 'em.  Practically tentacles, worms are.
Take them AWAY. -- Delon Lurost

Rigatoni -- It's this darned wheat allergy, you know?  I just can't seem to handle
pasta.  Depressing, because I like pasta, but there it is, eat wheat and cough for
days.  The pits.  So... pass on by. -- Lorins Peln

Soldier #1 -- You'll have to do better than that if you want the title, son.  This
isn't an easy life, you know. -- Domino Joe
P.S.  My advice to a youngster:  Rise slowly, making sure of each step before going
on.  Practice.  Trust no one but yourself with your blades, always check your own
weapons before the fight.  Buy Osksi and get the best.  [The preceding was a paid
advertisement for Holmar's House of Steel, Source of the Finest Weapons and Armor in

Big Brother -- (reeling back)  I did NOT kick sand in the face of your kid sister nor
sit on your infant brother.  It was NOT ME.  I wouldn't DO things like that,
honestly! -- Maur Tolidar
P.S.  Being a golem, I have no free will anyway, so if I HAD, it wouldn't have been
my fault!

This Convicted Thief is pitiful.  He was obviously a sneak thief who had no occasion
to learn any kind of fighting skills.  A worthless rabbit. -- Timaurn Voth

Drunk Dennis -- Phaugh!  Your breath would overpower a Shew! -- Embezzler #1

Tinaurn Voth -- (whine)  I only did it once!  Have mercy! -- Thief #79

Otis 3 -- I knew this was a mugs game.  Oh, well, maybe I'll learn something to my
advantage. -- Guard Du Jour

Jungle Juice -- I feel that I have been insulted in being matched with you.  Or that
my products, at least, have been insulted. -- Wine Importer #6

Freak Show -- You know, I could USE you.  Come on by my office this evening.  Late.
-- Midway Manager #2, Trying Harder

Soldier 2 -- Phaugh!  The second round was no better.  I will let some other guard
take this duty next time. -- Guard Du Jour
