                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly OSKSI games.  COLT 45 caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MELANDON SORN and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, COLT 45 put down 
MELANDON SORN, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Due to 
his absence and inability to defend the throne, RIGATONI has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of BUD GREEN, for with his arena 
victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Informants "close" 
to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath 
his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city OSKSI.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Ambitious Guard, no doubt you have a name, but I don't seem to recall it -- What's
the deal here?  Has someone been feeding you red meat? -- Tarobinz Maur

Seriously, this Fratsfa Slave does not belong in the arena. -- Kovaramann Voth
P.S.  In fact, I question whether he has any use at all.

I don't believe this was the same Userous Merchant as last time.  Odd, that there
should be two. -- Elvorn Marslan

Ah, the Cult Member.  How tedious. -- Melandon Sorn

Mordant Deserter?  Are you sure he wasn't an intentional expulsion?  He's not all
that great a fighter. -- Vandelshimhan Tiru

Charl Bentone, Dry Goods and Men's Wear -- We'd get along a lot better if you could
bring yourself to acknowledge that it was not ME who bought stuff at your place.  It
was my evil twin, Viln. -- Kovaramann Voth

Huh, just us and the pasta, and not one match between us.  Good thing there are
standbys at hand. -- Games Library

Fratsfa Slave from Lot #72 -- Curse you for a limp-wristed whimperer. -- Tarobinz
Maur

Sellorow, Registrar of Beggars -- I had guess that.  Tree-born beggars have more
stamina. -- Vandelshimhan Tiru

Ghost of Gnocchi -- I don't actually like pasta. -- Lord Iskoven

Rigatoni -- By rights, that should be my title, but the Commission has always had it
in for those of us in the Chardinee Society. -- M. Hilliense Chardinee

Tarobinz Maur -- The Fratsfa Slaves may be wimps, but they're OUR wimps, and you will
not abuse them so. -- Gabrendas of Murska, Guard Du Jour

Kovaramann Voth -- Bear in mind what I just said to your teammate. -- Gabrendas of
Murska, Guard Du Jour

Elvorn Marslan -- That was...very forceful of you.  Can we not get on more
businesslike terms?  Perhaps you would be interested in looking over my wares; the
prices are quite reasonable. -- Terrial m'Korian, Importer of Fine Wines

Melandon Sorn -- I know it's all a test, but you didn't have to ENJOY it so.  When I
reach the next Circle, you will pay. -- Anonymous Cult Member of the Second Circle

Vandelshimhan Tiru -- If this is the price I must pay to stay out of Mordant, I WILL
pay it. -- Sir Mordant Deserter #86
