                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
OSKSI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see SUPER SENIOR win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
SUPER SENIOR beat GOT NO BRAIN and GOT NO BRAIN lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  FARFALE TV challenged KOVARAMANN VOTH for OSKSI's Title this turn, and guess 
what happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, OSKSI may be getting bland, as 
FARFALE stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I 
telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, OSKSI?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  OSKSI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
STATE OF MIND the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was PASTA.  Ha ha ha ha!  KOVARAMANN VOTH was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  CEREBRAL 
CORTEX, a glorious 2-7-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad STATE OF MIND.  
We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you 
sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in OSKSI to get a drink than The Elefont!  Any 
suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of OSKSI.  I 
feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now--

Farfale -- Ah, but I now have the distinction of being known as a man who can't hold
his pasta well, yes? -- Kovaramann Voth

Got No Brain -- Then you'll fit right in to the gladiatorial community. -- Tarobinz
Maur

A Convicted Assassin.  Bah.  Worthless. -- Elvorn Marslan
P.S.  Now, and Unproven Assassin might be interesting.

I figure a man who would become a mercenary, and survive long enough to become a
veteran and retire, and then can't live on his loot and didn't get any kind of
pension worth mentioning is... pathetic.  But we knew that. -- Melandon Sorn

Brain Hemorage -- I was disappointed, I expected to see blood coming out of your
nose, at least! -- Vandelshimhan Tiru
P.S.  Ah, maybe I hit you a little too hard in my effort to make that happen.  Sorry.

So much for the big welcome back I was expecting, Jorja!  I know it wasn't
intentional, but vandelshimhan tiru will be taught how to play nice with others! --
Marma Duke

Tarobinz Maur -- I'm sure I haven't seen the last of your crew... and I'm looking
forward to it!!! -- Got No Brain

Gemelli -- Well done, young padwa. -- Psionic Psycho

Problem Child -- You won't be my problem anymore.  Welcome to the land of the Dark
Arena! -- Marma Duke

Furious Gorge -- I'm looking forward to doing that dance again sometime in the
future.  Until then, it's back to the drawing board! -- Cerebral Cortex

Storm Lord and Reaper -- I can smell your presence even though I may not be able to
see you in here yet!!! -- Marma Duke
