                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for ABADU FLATN, who pummelled EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, to 
pocket 20 points.  TAROBINZ MAUR certainly had a baffled expression on his face, 
after losing to SATIVA and losing 6 points in the process!  Our Duelmaster has lost, 
folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, BUT BUD GREEN is still the Duelmaster because he 
has the most recognition points!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in OSKSI is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid OSKSI 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Bud Green -- If you can stay green in this weather, I'm just amazed.  Everyone else I
know is kind of blue. -- Kovaramann Voth, feeling rather blue himself

Sativa -- The sad decline of a memory.  I used to speak basic botany, but I had to
actually LOOK YOU UP.  Grown from seed.  Okay.  Did you know that on the same page in

the dictionary, well, the facing page, but that's pretty much the same thing, is the
word saurognathous?  Meaning having a vomer of two lateral parts.  I don't know how I
lived without that bit of knowledge. -- Elvorn Marslan

I'm not going to "look up" the Userous Merchant, he'd probably charge me for it!  And
he wouldn't teach me a skill unless I promised him money, which I was not about to
do.  I can find someone else to teach me skills. -- Tarobinz Maur

Colt 45 -- I don't believe that.  Looks to me like you're no more than a 22.  Maybe
even less. -- Melandon Sorn

Ihitterquitter -- You confuse me so much I can't begin to defend myself.  Annoying,
that. -- Vandelshimhan Tiru

Gabrendus of Murska, Guard du Jour -- Why should I care what you think?  This is
Osksi, not Murska. -- Tarobinz Maur

Terrial m'Korian, Importer of Fine Wines -- I'm always interested in fine wines, but
maybe I should put this project on hold while I find out how much it will cost me,
eh? -- Elvorn Marslan
