                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail OSKSI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  The GAMES LIBRARY guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in 
the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, 
GNOCCHI fought OTIS 3 and gained 26 points and contributed to PASTA's 2-1-0.  OTIS 3 
has lost to GNOCCHI, falling 6 points, while helping make FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT a 0-1-0 
turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, SPAGHETTI has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  We should ask GNOCCHI about the thrill of victory, and what 
being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Can someone 
confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at 
The Elefont until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the OUR HIGHEST 
HONOR stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on OSKSI, what are you afraid 
of?  And avoiding OUR HIGHEST HONOR more than any other team we find PASTA.  OSKSI, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that OSKSI has more dishwashers per capita that fighters? 
Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in OSKSI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

CARE?  I love spaghetti.  Well, I like it a lot, I wouldn't take it to bed with me.
