                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly OSKSI games.  Former top team FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT was 
unseated this week as OUR HIGHEST HONOR moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-1 record for the round.  LORINS PELN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DRUNK DENNIS and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, VENOMOUS CONCUBINE 
put down JUNGLE JUICE, causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  
Although KHALHUMS DWARF made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign 
of victorious SOLDIER #3.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in OSKSI 
seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city OSKSI.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For 
mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week MAUR TOLIDAR, at 7-16-1, 
departed OSKSI forever.  Cruelly, GRUNT of OUR HIGHEST HONOR has slain the lesser 
ranked MAUR TOLIDAR.  Word already flies around town that GAMES LIBRARY plans a 
bloodfeud!  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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in OSKSI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

You know, out of twelve fights, nine of them involved standbys.  Seems to me there's
a message in this.  Such as, with a little forethought and planning, we could manage
to have FIFTEEN fights, ALL involving standbys.  Yes, no? -- Nick and Jorja, Games
Library

Soldier #3 -- Good going!  I really wasn't a suitable duelmaster.  More of a
duelapprentice.  I'd suggest you write a column, but my mama didn't raise any
pollyanas, and it's plain to me that only Jorja has enough nastiness to persuade
gladiators to write columns.  Hmm.  I wonder if I could change teams.... -- Delon
Lurost

Soldier #4 -- Well...I can't say that "made my day," but at least it didn't END my
day.  So I suppose it was okay. -- Kelorinso Vhu

Drunk Dennis -- I never thought to ask what you were drunk ON.  It's an
invulnerability potion or something, isn't it?  Gods, the injustice! -- Maur Tolidar
P.S.  The real injustice lies in me being forced to gladiate, when my true interest
and skill lies in housepainting.  I have done some great work with unusual color
combinations on the fancy trim.  It truly is an art.

The Mordant Deserter?  I believe I've been insulted. -- Lorins Peln

Wow, nobody told me the Mordant Deserter would get, well, fresh, you know?  Really
fresh.  I thought he was "fresh-faced," still with the dew of innocence.  Uh-uh.  It
was the sweat of, well, not innocence.  Avoid this beast. -- Lorille Voth

Our congratulations to Soldier #1. -- Games Library

Lorille Voth -- Ah, the pleasure of your company!  I will wait for you after the
fights, little flower! -- Sir Mordant Deserter #86

Lorins Peln -- You think I like this job?  But it beats the alternatives. -- Mordant
Deserter #459713

Grunt -- I'll get you for that. -- (name withheld under threat), Very Dangerous
Criminal

Soldier 2 -- We coulda used you during the Rirorni War. -- Taldo Belansamo, Veteran
Mercenary

Big Brother -- A human institution.  We don't do things like that. -- Elder Ironshoe,
Dwarf of Khalhums

Freak Show -- (bitterly)  I TOLD the stewards I should have a sword.  But did they
listen?  Ha! -- Flying Fingers of Steel #1, Master of Kung-Fu

Jungle Juice -- Heck.  It was all an accident, but nobody ever LISTENS or gives me
the benefit of the doubt. -- Assassin Third Class # 72

Otis 3 -- I guess this means the guild is REALLY annoyed with me, doesn't it? --
Assassin Third Class # 72

Soldier #1 -- High time you were leaving. -- M. Chardinee Jr.
