                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of OSKSI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  KRONIC BLAZE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested GRUNT and was awarded 28 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KRONIC BLAZE put down GRUNT, 
causing him to lose 23 points of recognition in the process.  Our last turn's 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, and BIG BROTHER has made the way 
for a new Duelmaster!  With BIG BROTHER clearing the throne, FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT of 
JUNGLE JUICE takes a proud seat as OSKSI's new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition 
points.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In OSKSI "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  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 GREEN 
WITH ENVY last week.  Busy avoiding GAMES LIBRARY?  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after DELON 
LUROST.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, 
it seems that BELLHOP posted a challenge against the more highly recognized DELON 
LUROST.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand BELLHOP lost to DELON LUROST.  
Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Kelorinso Vhu -- Love that desperation strategy.  I learned a lot on that fight. --
Bud Green

Lorille Voth -- Man you can teach some skills!  Sorry about not returning the favor.
-- Kronic Blaze

Bellhop -- I guess it's ok to lose to you since you taught me 5 skills and gave me a
new rating. -- Mary Jane

Naughty Angels -- Nice!  Glad to see you here. -- Misfit, mgr. Green With Envy
P.S.  Send me a diplo; let me know if you got anything good.

Jennifer Whitecloud -- Just because the scribe was embezzling from you doesn't mean
you have to kill him.  Just cut off his hands next time. -- Misfit

Big Brother -- Thanks!  This new arrangement--you with the title--suits me very well.
-- Delon Lurost, number two and not embarrassed

Bud Green -- So, do you have a big brother named Leaf Green?  A viking type, I would
think.  Maybe spells it differently, you know vikings are careless about that.  Leif
Green, maybe. -- Kelorinso Vhu

Comeandgetsome -- I don't think so, but thanks just the same.  I do well enough with
what I've got. -- Lorins Peln

Kronic Blaze -- Ouch.  Not my ideal fight. -- Lorille Voth

Ziti -- You're a pasta?  I never would have guessed, I thought you were something
unpleasant happening to my complexion.  Next time, I'll bring cheese. -- Korleen Maur

Korleen Maur -- You wound me, madam. -- Embezzler #1

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.
