                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for GOD DETHRONED, who 
flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing OTIS 5 like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SOLDIER 2 
was overcame by M. CHARDINEE and drops 13 points.  In front of all the crowds, KRONIC 
BLAZE took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  An apple a 
day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the OSKSI arena.  Did you 
hear that GAMES LIBRARY was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of GAMES LIBRARY's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch GREEN WITH ENVY's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft 
at running from GAMES LIBRARY.  And who is this LORINS PELN you ask, with 68 points 
and a 11-15-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Was it guts or an overtaxed 
mental capacity that had JUNGLE JUICE challenge up 26 points in the rankings to take 
on LORINS PELN?  I heard JUNGLE JUICE laughed all the way to the inn as his new point 
total of 86 was posted in the arena.  I guess beating LORINS PELN really pays!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  COMEANDGETSOME says to its 
dog--'Who should I fight this week?'.  Dog says 'LORD ISKOVEN'.  So the beast dies.  
Moral?  Put lying dogs to sleep.  Yes, and another newbie bites the dust as OTIS 5 
goes down under the sword of GOD DETHRONED.  Thanks to this, GOD DETHRONED now has 19 
recognition points.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in 
the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in OSKSI have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Jorja -- Sorry for your loss.  I was going for the right leg with a 6 kd.  Must have
been weak in the knees. -- Mary Jane

My team went 4-1-1 and there wasn't any mention in the spy report.  Who do I have to
pay to get some recognition around here? -- Misfit, mgr. Green w/ Envy

Kronic Blaze is a Mirani.  Last turn he was listed as a golem.  Was that a typo?  A
few turns back he was listed as HE in drawing a longsword from its sheath and flips a
dagger in HER off-hand.  This is confusing him greatly and it is hurting his ego. --
Misfit

Soldier 2 -- (reeling back)  There's no END to you guys, is there? -- Delon Lurost

Jungle Juice -- (curled lip of scorn)  A drink for pussycats, for kittens.  Real men
drink (leans close to whisper) unfiltered water! -- Lorins Peln
P.S.  Deadly stuff, as often as not.  But sneaky.  You think you're doing fine,
there's nothing to it, and then...a little wiggle in the stomach, a slight spin in
the head, and suddenly...WHAMMO!

Bud Green -- Oh, you guys are back.  Listen, if you try to embroil us in some kind of
contest, we are OUT of here.  That's our official position, and no argument will sway
us. -- Korleen Maur, speaking officially for Games Library

Mary Jane -- That stuff destroys brain tissue, you know.  Of course, a gladiator...
who cares about brain tissue? -- Ghost of Kelorinso Vhu

Comeandgetsome -- Thanks, I'll pass. -- Lorille Voth
