                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of OSKSI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at OUR HIGHEST 
HONOR left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by FRAT PARTY 
BLOWOUT.  Good show!  GAMES LIBRARY posted a nice gain, to come in 3rd.  Everybody 
loves a winner...  OUR HIGHEST HONOR had cause to celebrate, after GRUNT got 17 
points by beating VENOMOUS CONCUBINE.  LORINS PELN certainly had a baffled expression 
on his face, after losing to DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and losing 8 points in the process!  
Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by CONVICTED ASSASSIN, of 
OSKSI, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome OSKSI's Number 1.  So who's the team 
that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt 
to me.   
     And how sociable are OSKSI's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Citizens of OSKSI, be sure to settle your debts with SOLDIER #4 of OUR HIGHEST HONOR. 
He's relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  The manager at 
OUR HIGHEST HONOR must have some new strategy for sending SOLDIER #4, a warrior with 
15-6-1, to the Dark Arena.  Watch this space!  Questions are being raised about the 
disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in OSKSI would I 
avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for OSKSI?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Our turn envelope burst open in the post office (or so I'm told, I wasn't there), and
a lot of turns fell out.  Some--not all--of the fights and other pages showed up at
the guildhouse about five days later.  If there's something missing from our
personals, blame it on the post office, okay?  We're doing our best here. -- Jorja,
Games Library

Grunt -- That was shocking.  Very shocking.  I died of the shock, it says so on the
death certificate.  Bummer.  I mean, I know I'm a golem, but that doesn't mean I want
to be a dead golem!  I have an idea I've been dead before, too, that I was just
resting quietly and some magician, probably a necromancer, came along looking for a
soul to put into a golem and he pointed at me and said, "You'll do."  And there I
was.  And now, I don't know what will happen.  Do I get to just go ahead and be dead,
and if so, can I reach my original afterlife destination from here and now?  Or do I
get sucked into another body, probably another golem and end up in the arena again?
It's a mystery and a source of considerable ectoplasmic tension, I can tell you. --
Ghost of Maur Tolidar
P.S.  See if I ever teach you three skills again!

"The signal is given for the duel to begin."  I've been noticing lately, and today's
turn in Osksi falls in line with this:  That each of the team's fights today in Osksi
will start with this same line.  Other arenas running the same day will probably
start with different lines (one per team).  How about the rest of you?  Did all your
fights today start with this line?  Or with some other same line?  Inquiring Minds
Want to Know. -- Jorja
P.S.  AD arenas don't seem to be as stereotyped.  Or I could simply be imagining the
whole thing based on insufficient data.

Soldier #4 -- I was put off my stroke by the fate of my teammate Maur.
Disconcerting, you know, to see people just up and die like that.  I (and probably
everyone else) always imagine that it can't happen to ME or any of my teammates, but
there it is.  Death.  It's enough to make anyone stop and think.  What it made me
think is, given the difference in our experience, it's lucky *I* didn't die.  I would
have hated dying. -- Kelorinso Vhu

Dangerous Criminal?  What is a dangerous criminal doing running around loose? --
Delon Lurost

Drunk Dennis -- I am disgusted with you.  Don't you ever sober up? -- Lorins Peln
P.S.  Was that "serious treatment" in the Infirmary by any chance "sober treatment"?
Just wondering.

Embezzling Scribe?  Tcha!  I loathe the fellows.  I suspect that a lot of the world's
ills can be traced back to lies in print. -- Lorins Peln

Again twelve fights with nine standbys!  What are we doing wrong?  We could have, and
SHOULD have, had FIFTEEN fights with FIFTEEN standbys! -- Jorja, Games Library

Sir Mordant Deserter #86 -- As if! -- Lorille Voth
P.S.  Wait a minute, I don't like Mordant, so why should I condemn you for leaving?
Does this "pleasure of my company" include dinner?

Mordant Deserter #459713 -- If you say so.  But what happens if you die? -- Lorins
Peln

Lorille Voth -- Ah, you want to "shine" for your date with the Mordant Deserter?
Well, those blows I DID manage to land will make sure you don't feel like dancing. --
Embezzler #1, First Class

Delon Lurost -- I will get you yet! -- (name withheld under threat), Dangerous
Criminal

Jungle Juice -- Really!  Surely you didn't expect ME to drink that...beverage?  I
have standards, you know. -- the Third Concubine

Soldier 2 -- Concentrate, grasshopper.  You cannot accomplish anything if you allow
your mind to flitter like a butterfly. -- Flying Fingers of Steel #1

Otis 3 -- It was, I suppose, well done of you.  Winning is your purpose, or at least
your short-term goal.  But beware HOW you win.  It is never wise to make enemies
unintentionally. -- M. Hilliense Chardinee

Soldier #1, Freak Show, and Big Brother -- My thanks for you help on the training
field.  Perhaps NOW these young fools will believe me I tell them they do NOT know it
all. -- Taldo Belansamo, Master of Mercenaries

Soldier #3 -- Viciousness was not called for.  This will be remembered as a mark
against you. -- Elder Ironshoe, Khalhums Dwarf
