                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for WHIRLING INSELBERG, who pummelled VANDELSHIMHAN TIRU, 
to pocket 20 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 19 points to WHIRLING INSELBERG.  (Discrete enough, VANDELSHIMHAN 
TIRU?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by ELVORN MARSLAN, of 
GAMES LIBRARY, who despite a 17-19-1 couldn't overcome OSKSI's Number 1.  So who was 
the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's 
got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in OSKSI is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  OSKSI, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Elefont.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

Farfale -- Oh, no, you don't get ME up there again!  I'm taking a vacation from being
Duelmaster, and maybe I'll graduate before I have to think of another "few words from
the top." -- Kovaramann Voth

The Venomous Concubine terrorized me!  She kept whispering about the horrible things
she'd do to me if she caught me alone in the Infirmary, and I just had to surrender
before I was hurt too badly to escape. -- Tarobinz Maur

They should never let dwarves study Kung-Fu.  They take advantage. -- Elvorn Marslan

A Convicted Assassin?  Bah.  A nobody. -- Melandon Sorn

And a Dangerous Criminal.  Only one managed opponent.  That's bad.  I guess that's
because the five of us Games Librarians are stacked up in a solid blcok between the
Duelmaster and the pathetic rest of the active arena, all three of 'em.  Pathetic. --
