                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of OSKSI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  KOVARAMANN VOTH caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CONVICTED ASSASSIN and was 
awarded 7 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ZEOR 
THORNE put down MELANDON SORN, causing him to lose 3 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 KOVARAMANN VOTH, 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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in OSKSI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, 
indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await 
me!  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

Manicotti -- Strange as it may sound, there IS such a thing as "too much pasta."
Also, it's wrong for pasta to be tough, it indicates improper cooking.  I'm glad to
see that you were properly cooked, just about to al dente, would be my assessment. --
Mealndon Sorn

Rigatoni -- Hmm, tough.  Maybe cooked too long in an oven, and you got dry and hard.
A sad fate for any pasta. -- Elvorn Marslan

Well, thanks to the Khalhums Dwarf, Elder Ironshoe, Master of the Axe of Khalhums, I
am all over the front page.  This tickles my vanity. -- Kovaramann Voth

Farfale -- I think I'm allergic to wheat. -- Tarobinz Maur

Orbin Atrium -- You're an amazing student. -- Vandelshimhan Tiru
P.S.  Some of you young hotshots won't learn from an old dog like me.

Vandelshimhan Tiru -- Your parents loved scrabble didn't they? -- Orbin Atrium

Embezzling Scribe -- The Commission paid me a hefty bounty to kill your sorry hieving
butt.  Enjoy your time with Ahringol. -- Mirin Royce

Peristant Beggar -- Gitta jhob yew layzye buhm. -- Abadu Flatn

Cult Member -- Did your leader tell that fighting me was the way too enlightenment?
-- Velor Scrum

Embezzling Scribe -- You must not have stolen as much.  The Commission didn't offer
me squat for your hide. -- Zeor Thorne

Vandelagigger Tiru -- Didya evrr tink dat mahybe yew beetin me myte be enuff fer me
