                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in OSKSI. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  GAMES LIBRARY now holds the crown 
and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for GRUNT 4, who 
flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was GRUNT 3, who 
dropped 9 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with ZITI.  Well, 
everybody's pal OTIS 3 moved his record to 26-4-1 by defeating KORLEEN MAUR in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 13 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the OSKSI arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad GAMES LIBRARY?  Big bad GAMES LIBRARY.  
Big bad GAMES LIBRARY.  OSKSI's afraid of the big bad GAMES LIBRARY.  Tra la la la 
la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause PASTA beats 
feet every time GAMES LIBRARY smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this 
SOLDIER 2 you ask, with 69 points and a 18-14-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell! 
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the OSKSI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Soldier 2 -- Ah, it was very sad, quite tragic, I'm sure.  You went off to be a
soldier, filled with purpose, idealism, and confidence that you would have something
to come home to.  And then...everything went wrong, not the least of which was the
"Dear John" letter.  Enough to make anyone bury their name, I'm sure. -- Korleen
Maur, who finds it much easier to be compassionate from a winning position

Spaghetti -- You learned SIX skills from me?  Don't I get some kind of bonus for
this?  At least a tip?  After all, I was nearly strangled, and I WAS tripped, by a
bunch of tangled pasta.  That was...unpleasant, and not in the same way getting
chopped in the arena is.  One expects hostility and damage in the arena, but a dish
of pasta is supposed to just sit there and be eaten or played with or whatever.
Drat. -- Lorins Peln
P.S.  Probably not enough garlic.

Grunt -- I certainly SHALL!  Your "breast fixation" was disgusting as well as
painful.  Your conversation is totally lacking in wit and sparkle.  And your personal
habits are open to some doubt. -- Lorille Voth

The Commission can throw a Captured Orc at me twice, but it can't expect me to behave
stupidly toward the said orc twice.  I disarmed and dislegged the beast, and I was
beginning to dischest it, when the Arenamaster, a spoilsport if I ever saw one,
stepped in and stopped me.  If he cherishes the stupid orc, he shouldn't send it into
the arena. -- Delon Lurost

Death Threat -- Young woman, you need more experience before you start talking tough
like that.  You need skills, which means:  Pay attention to what I teach you. --
Lameridhor Sko
P.S.  No, of course I'm not a dwarf!  But until the Commission acknowledges that a
human may also have facial hair, I'm stuck with that attribution.  I have no
intention of shaving for them; I've put in a lot of work on that mustache.

Grunt 4 -- Not much meat on your bones. -- a hungry Black Orc

Jungle Juice -- Tasty, very tasty.  Got any more of that around? -- Assassin Third
Class # 72

Otis 3 -- Very good.  You do credit to our style.  You may wear a belt. -- Flying
Fingers of Steel #1, Master of Kung Fu
P.S.  It's snakeskin, several colors at one time.  Very confusing to your opponents.

Drunk Dennis -- Pathetic.  Sober up, practice every day for two weeks, and we can try
it again. -- Flying Fingers of Steel #1, Master of Kung Fu

Delon Lurost -- You're out to get me, aren't you? -- Morris Korgo, Captured and
Browbeaten Orc

Gnocchi -- Very tasty.  Is there more? -- Anonymous Cult Member of the Second Circle
