                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in OSKSI!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for ZITI?  PASTA's 
proud of him after beating DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  MELANDON SORN's match with M. CHARDINEE cost him a loss of 11 points!  
Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular gal in all OSKSI.  She got the 
most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Like, PSYCHIC FRIEND must be pretty 
gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from PASTA.  Does this guy have a death wish or 
what!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think FARFALE should let 
PSYCHIC FRIEND be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the 
wiseguy that said OSKSI's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Elefont?  Don't 
look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of WE BIG WOHPUM must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what STATE OF MIND's been doing.  
They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from WE BIG WOHPUM, that's fer 
sher.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  WOHP YOUR TOE! really fought hard against 
UNDER PRESSURE.  That'll teach STATE OF MIND not to go and kill any of WE BIG 
WOHPUM's guys again, huh!  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Kovaramann Voth -- I predicted I would win, but I didn't think it would be like that!
I'm sure we'll meet up again. -- Psychic Friend

Elvorn Marslan -- We have to stop meeting like this!  Rubber match soon?  At least
this time you taught me something. -- TV Dinner

Got No Brain -- What the heck!  Last time I hit you once and you drop.  This time I
hit you NINE times and you keep on ticking!  It must be the performance enhancing
drugs, I guess! -- Super Senior

Hrendreske -- That was a brief homecoming, wasn't it!  I was hoping to stay a little
longer as well.  I would of liked the chance to fight Farfale and try to become
DuelMaster and top Lunger.  Oh well, it was nice when it lasted. -- Super Senior
P.S.  Any and all gifts are welcome!  I can always pimp up that wheelchair you were
offering.

Psionic Psycho -- A worthy effort, sir. -- Vandelshimhan Tiru

Farfale -- Ugh.  Pasta always leaves me feeling bloated.  Don't care for the feeling.
-- Melandon Sorn

Psychic Friend -- If that's friendship, I'll take a plate of hash. -- Kovaramann Voth

TV Dinner -- MUCH better to have a plate of hash! -- Elvorn Marslan

And the Khalhums Dwarf, old Elder Ironshoe. -- Tarobinz Maur
P.S.  He's looking a bit run down lately.  Maybe he needs more iron in his diet and
less in his shoes.

State of Mind -- I was making no effort to "avoid" a bloodfeud.  No avoids, and no
challenges, were issued in my name. -- Vandelshimhan Tiru
P.S.  I continue to be available.

Psychic Friend -- Seems likely.  It's the old "small arena" thing, although this
arena is looking refreshingly less small of late. -- Tarobinz Muar

Super Senior -- Revenge is sweet!  You should have gone and challenged the DA on your
way out instead... -- Got No Brain

Ghost of Willy Wohp -- Sorry about that, it wasn't intentional or personal.  Awaiting
your bloodfeud. -- Under Pressure

Gemelli -- I'd like a recount! -- Placid Intensity

Perfect Drug -- I liked the high much better than the come down... You were almost my
drug of choice! -- Wisdoms Whisper

I think I smell Reaper approaching!  His pungent stench is very distinct... -- Marma
Duke

This is the turn my bloodfeuds are settled... It has been said, it shall be done.
Amen. -- State of Mind

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
