                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It has been a long-standing tradition that whenever one of Marma Duke's warriors
is sitting on the throne while getting the call to ADM... he likes to share a little
information about us.
     If you were really wondering who and what I am, my stats are 9(2)-14(1)-10-
18(1)-18(1)-3-18(1).  One day I hope to bust out in an ADM tourney when Marm's thinks
I'm ready!
     My skills as I type this are Init(22) Rip(15) Att(20) Par(25) Def(26) Dec(9) for
a total of 117 skills for an average of 2.60 skills/fight.
     Favorites were Very Low/Low with a QS that I never used due to the ST
requirments, but I will be wielding such a weapon against Psychic Friend this turn if
all goes to plan, as we've agreed to fight each other using our favorites as we both
graduate to ADM.
     Well, it's been fun... I'm off to ADM and it appears I'm leaving behind a
relatively junior crew of warriors... but I have faith in my manager and his ability
to lead this motley crew of State of Mind into a new dawn.

My best,
Got No Brain

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of OSKSI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team GENERATION X was unseated 
this week as IRATE FORMATIONS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-0 record for the round.  TV DINNER caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested TAROBINZ MAUR and was awarded 16 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CADILLAC DUNDEE put down 
CTHYLLA, causing her to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  This time out 
PSYCHIC FRIEND made his bid for the throne as he challenged GOT NO BRAIN in an all 
out contest of skill for possession of the title!  Although PSYCHIC FRIEND made a 
valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious GOT NO BRAIN.  
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.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  STATE OF MIND is feared.  This 
much I can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of IRATE FORMATIONS last week.  Busy avoiding STATE OF MIND?  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  CTHYLLA take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in OSKSI.   
     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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

Crash Diet -- Consider youself "struck down"... gotta love the spy report...<grin> --
Taint Of The Sea

Marma -- You guys in 3 are after me... I miss a turn and all these 10KDs run amok.  I
guess it was a good time to duck.  I am crying for you really... -- Reaper

Jorja -- Are you still out there? -- Reaper

Stormy -- Well, I thought I would stack up some skills and come back for Crash Diet,
but I will take a win when I can get it. -- Reaper

PSYCHIC FRIEND and GOT NO BRAIN -- Congrats on the invite.  Now your replacements can
join the DA / death-fest which is the initiates of Osksi. -- Reaper

KHALHUMS DWARF -- Fear the Dwarf!!!  Osksi is not for the weak... -- Reaper
P.S.  Saw you kill 2 champs in 41...  You are the only worthy stand in...

Kovaramann Voth -- That was fun!  Looks like that wasn't my favorite weapon after
all, but I seemed to do pretty well with it. -- Psychic Friend

Got No Brain -- Hope to get to fight you next turn, seeing that we are both
graduating.  Might be a good way to try out a weapon that I never used before. --
Psychic Friend

Taborinz Maur -- Good to get back to my winning ways!  Now hopefully I can start a
new streak. -- TV Dinner

Cthylla -- Tell your manager to let you show some skin the next time I fight you.
All that Plate makes your butt look fat!  Just kidding of course ;)  Only trying to
look for an edge. -- Mailer Daemon

Taint of the Sea -- I'm hoping to fix that problem during the tourney... if I survive
of course!  See ya soon! -- Crash Diet

Frenetic Desires -- That sounds like a show I saw on cable while I was 'channel
surfing'.  Oh well. -- Channel Surfer

Osksi --  Hope everyone had a good tourney! -- Storm Lord, Generation X

Placid Intensity -- My apologies for killing you.  I wasn't aiming for vitals and my
kill desire was relatively low.  Still, I expect your team's bloodfeud for the next
few turns. -- Cadillac Dundee

Cadillac Dundee -- That's not a knife... I'll show you a knife! -- Virtual Reality

Elvorn Marslan -- A fight so nice, we did it twice. -- Got No Brain

Bob the Inhaler -- Me thinks you have more experience than your arena record
indicates. -- Psionic Psycho

Channel Surfer -- That felt like a bad commerical. -- Frenetic Desires

Perfect Drug -- Congrats on the TC! -- State of Mind

Got No Brain -- You don't seem to miss it. -- Elvorn Marslan

Psychic Friend -- If this is friendship, I'll take a plate of hash. -- Kovaramann
Voth
P.S.  And do NOT tell me that you can "psychicly sense" that I need to be defeated in
order to be happy!

Tv Dinner -- I do really hurt, and it's my stomach.  I think something I ate
disagreed with me. -- Tarobinz Maur

Killed by the Khalhums Dwarf?  How embarrassing! -- Ghost of Vandelshimhan Tiru
P.S.  But perhaps I can travel with my friend Placid Intensity.

Zombie Bait -- Odd, I didn't know that one fished for zombies with bait.  This is a
potentially critical piece of information, I wonder how it comes about that no one
mentioned it to me? -- Salkorinvar Kiro

Psychic Friend -- You're completely correct.  You need new opponents so as not to
become stale! -- Kovaramann Voth

Got No Brain -- All part of the service. -- Elvorn Marslan

Our congratulations to Got No Brain and Psychic Friend. -- Jorja and the Games
Librarians
