                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon OSKSI, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but TEAM CHAOS will tell you 7-8-2 is nothing to laugh at...  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 2 points to 
DEATH THREAT.  (Discrete enough, GRUNT 3?) Now I can't insult DRUNK DENNIS, as he has 
gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on 
too thick) Word has it one team in OSKSI is taking speech lessons to try to bore 
their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are OSKSI's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in OSKSI avoid FRAT PARTY 
BLOWOUT.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, PASTA scurried away from FRAT 
PARTY BLOWOUT.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, LORINS PELN is the most challenged 
warrior.  GNOCCHI challenged LORINS PELN!  Who says PASTA are just a bunch of wimps!  
GNOCCHI of PASTA kept his wits as he beat LORINS PELN.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Those who owe 
LINGUINI of PASTA money and had written him off, take note:  he'S BACK FROM THE DARK 
ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Never one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was 
pleased to see TEAM CHAOS retaliate against PASTA in bloodfeud!  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
OSKSI would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in OSKSI is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for OSKSI?  On that giddy note 
I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Dormant Anger -- If that was "dormant," the gods deliver me from "active."  Well, I
suppose when Jorja reads the fight report, I'll get enough "active" anger from her.
Not that I couldn't do quite well without it.  But this is just totally embarrassing.
-- Lameridhor Sko
P.S.  I'm not really a dwarf, look, I even shaved off my mustache!  But the
Commission just will NOT forget that I had facial hair when I registered.  Gods, what
minds (by courtesy so called) they must have!

Soldier 2 -- Ah, yes, the big one.  I'm reminded all over again that I don't like
people to be so much taller than I am.  Drat. -- Korleen Maur
P.S.  I'm surprised the Commission didn't call YOU a dwarf.  Seven foot two, shaved
head, what else could you be?

Jungle Juice -- Well, it's probably some kind of symmetry that we fight each other
for our last match here.  I'm headed for strenuous retirement at an undisclosed (non-
island) location, what about you? -- Delon Lurost

Grunt -- You're okay, but I bet if you learned to talk, you could teach better.  It
might be worth the effort. -- Lorins Peln
P.S.  Worth it to me for you to make the effort.

Ah, the Fratsfa Slave.  An idiot, and not a doubt about it. -- Lorille Voth
P.S.  Or he would have taught me at least ONE skill.
