                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is fortunate for us all that I suspected what might lie ahead and devoted
some time to the study of Kung-Fu, with specific reference to how one might defeat a
master of this annoying and underhanded art.  Because we really don't want a Kung-Fu
Dwarf to take the title, even if he isn't allowed to keep it.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt OSKSI will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as SORCERY COVENANT is pushed out of top team by GAMES LIBRARY, who came from 2nd 
with a 3-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, ALI TYSIM fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 
20 points and contributed to SORCERY COVENANT's 4-1-0.  ORBIN ATRIUM has lost to 
MELANDON SORN, falling 12 points, while helping make SORCERY COVENANT a 4-1-0 turn.  
The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and KOVARAMANN VOTH remains 
OSKSI's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Elefont uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in OSKSI and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Zeor Thorne -- You were an unusually worthy opponent for a golem.  Ah, not that I
have anything personally against golems--no, some of my best friends are NOT golems!

But I do dislike fighting these young hotshots with undefeated records.  It's so
embarrassing!  Well, usually.  This time, it was fine.  If you're constructed to
drink, I'll buy you one; if not, not. -- Tarobinz Maur

Orbin Atrium -- Surely you didn't intend to come out like that?  Unless you're
feeling suicidal, of course.  Yes, yes, I know that deaths are statistically
uncommon, but there's no comfort in a statistic when the death in question might be
one's own. -- Elvorn Marslan
P.S.  Armor is your friend!

Abadu Flatn -- I find a gendered golem a peculiar concept, but it seems to work for
you, so who am I to carp and complain?  Especially since you lost, eh? -- Melandon
Sorn

Mirin Royce -- Madam, never let it be said that a Vandelshimhan cannot appreciate
grace and beauty in an opponent.  You are like a fine sword blade, slender, deadly,
and without flaw.  Magnificent. -- Vandelshimhan Tiru

We lift a cup to the departing Velor Scrum.  May he escape the worst and live a
fulfilling life as a herder of sheep or perhaps a grower of tomatoes. -- the Games
Librarians

Orbin Atrium -- Certainly you held your own!  Never let someone else hold your own
for you. -- Elvorn Marslan

Zeor Thorne -- I have a listening problem. -- Melandon Sorn
