                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt OSKSI will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT is pushed out of top team by GAMES LIBRARY, who came from 3rd 
with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, KELORINSO VHU fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and 
gained 14 points and contributed to GAMES LIBRARY's 4-1-0.  SPAGHETTI has lost to 
MAUR TOLIDAR, falling 3 points, while helping make PASTA a 0-4-0 turn.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, SOLDIER #3 has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, DELON LUROST now claims the title and throne 
of Duelmaster of OSKSI.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Elefont until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  This is not good to see.  Why pray 
tell has RIGATONI been sent to the Dark Arena by PASTA?  And why with a 3-1-0 
record??  GAMES LIBRARY has lost TIMAURN VOTH to the arena in the sky, but they don't 
seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 6-7-0?  Is it really true that OSKSI has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, OSKSI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Soldier #4 -- Ah, well, you know how it is, by the time they've made three soldiers
and are ready to work on the fourth, they're scraping the bottom of the barrel for
materials.  Probably not your fault. -- Timaurn Voth

Grunt -- Drat you "strong silent types."  You have no conversation at all. -- Maur
Tolidar
P.S.  Why am I not surprised?  The standbys here talk more than most regular
gladiators.

Drunk Dennis -- How do you DO that?  I get drunk before the fights, I bomb.  You get
drunk, you come reeling out barely able to see straight, much less walk straight, and
you win.  Life is so unfair! -- Lorins Peln

Ah, the Cult Member.  Of course. -- Delon Lurost

Convicted Thief?  A wimp. -- Kelorinso Vhu

Masked Noble #009 -- Like I care! -- Lorins Peln

Thief #73 -- It could be worse, you could be a gladiator fighting every turn.  It's
the pits. -- Timaurn Voth

Embezzler #1 -- And you have no concept of the skills needed for gladiation, so we're
even. -- Delon Lurost

All -- We do not feel inclined to write personals today.  We are unappreciated, and
we're sulking. -- Nine Assorted Standbys

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
