                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly OSKSI games.  My praise to DREAMS OF KADATH for their 
4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  FRENETIC DESIRES caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, TAINT OF THE SEA put down SKAEVOLOVIAN KOR, causing 
him to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Due to hers absence and 
inability to defend the throne, FARFALE has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city 
has turned out in honor of ELVORN MARSLAN, for with his arena victory he may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  Informants "close" to the city champion 
have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out! 
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city OSKSI.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  GENERATION X is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of DREAMS OF KADATH are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  SKAEVOLOVIAN KOR take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in OSKSI.  Give PERFECT DRUG credit for his courage.  Did you note 
how he TV challenged ZITI despite the 27 point difference in their rankings?  I must 
admit to some joy.  Before my very eyes the underdog in this contest, PERFECT DRUG, 
defeated ZITI to claim victory and recognition.   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in OSKSI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Got No Brain -- Boy, you really can take a hit, can't you!  Using the War Flail
didn't help my cause too much, though.  Well, I'll see you at the Isle.  Let's have a
rematch in a few. -- Psychic Friend

Tarobinz Maur -- Thanks again!  You're really helping to build up my ego. -- TV
Dinner

Perfect Drug -- I hung in there for a while at least.  Who knows what might have
happened if my weapon didn't break! -- Mailer Daemon
P.S.  Congrats on the TC!  Pretty impressive.  At least someone helped make Osksi
look good!

Virtual Reality -- If that was 'Virtual' reality, I'd hate to see how you hit in
'Actual' reality!  I shall be avenged!!! -- Ghost of Channel Surfer

TV Dinner -- Ack.  Ick.  Surely not TODAY? -- Tarobinz Maur, in the belief that tv-
dinner turkey is worse than any other kind

Farfale -- You're back.  Drat.  Uh, glad you survived the tourney. -- Elvorn Marslan

The Venomous Concubine caught me in a weak moment. -- Kovaramann Voth

Taint of the Sea -- which is what, salt?  Oil-spills? -- Skaevolovian Kor
P.S.  I'm no dwarf and will tell the Commission so as bluntly as it takes to get
through.  How about you?

Nug-Soth -- I could've lived without this. -- Ghost of Salkorinvar Kiro
P.S.  In fact, maybe I will!  Maybe I'll just come back again as my replacement.

Reaper -- No, I'm inside.  It's cold outside, though probably not as cold as at your
place. -- Jorja

Reaper -- It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it. --Elder Ironshoe, Master of
the Axe of Khalhums
