                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I feel sure that Soldier #3 did his best, but I am obviously Gladiator #1 here
today.  And I like it that way.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of OSKSI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with ZITI?  He actually beat 
GAMES LIBRARY's KORLEEN MAUR, and walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at OSKSI while they watched CONVICTED ASSASSIN clobber OTIS 3.  He 
lost 25 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Apparently OSKSI 
isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 
challenges this turn!  FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT's hatred of GAMES LIBRARY surfaced again as 
BIG BROTHER challenged OSKSI's top dog.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for FRAT 
PARTY BLOWOUT's outstanding member, Duelmaster BIG BROTHER.  I suppose you want to 
hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  OSKSI thinks STL RAD and 
their 18-13-0 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  The bums at 
OUR HIGHEST HONOR couldn't face the challenges from STL RAD!  No excuse for that!   
     Warriors of OSKSI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Drunk Dennis -- That stuff smells awful, if your breath is anything to go by, but by
all the gods, it does seem to work.  What IS it? -- Lorins Peln

Finch's Art -- In the bathtub?  I question the suitability of this. -- Kelorinso Vhu

Bellhop -- Just keep hopping, boy. -- Lorille Voth

Ah, an Embezzling Scribe, who is inept as an embezzler, or he wouldn't be known as
such, and very inept as a gladiator, besides. -- Korleen Maur

Masked Noble #009 -- I don't know anyone who hasn't done something dumb while under
the influence. -- Kelorinso Vhu

Lorins Peln -- I laughed because you're laughable.  Also, you're insulting.  Your
life is mine if you step into an alley. -- (name withheld under threat)

Kelorinso Vhu -- I may or may not be a dwarf, but the only mask I could find on short
notice--and if I discover who took my regular mask, there will be harsh questions
asked!--has a beard.  You know how the Commission is about beards. -- Masked Noble
#009

There were a lot of us lined up to post our personals, but the arena scribe quit on
us.  Said she had a headache or something. -- M. Hilliense Chardinee

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
