                                      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.  Now let's all watch GAMES LIBRARY's 
heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big 
deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see ALFJAR win a fight and gain 31 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ALFJAR beat MEGA PIXEL and MEGA PIXEL lost 27 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, OSKSI may be getting 
bland, as BOB THE INHALER stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks 
and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  STATE OF MIND, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was DREAMS OF KADATH.  Ha ha ha ha!  COBBLESTONE was challenged more times this turn 
than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for OSKSI's 
morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  STONED IMMACULATE, a glorious 
13-9-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad STATE OF MIND.  Titanium shields and 
bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the OSKSI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide

Osksi -- Sorry I forgot to get my personal ads in last turn.  I wanted to thank
Perfect Drug for finally going away.  THANK YOU.  (And don't come back...).  Welcome,
Valley of Kings.  Another team from the "Golden 80s Era"?  Keep a few coins in your
pocket for the river crossing; death is a frequent visitor here.  But don't you
Egyptian-types dress the dead so prettily??  Better save for that, too. -- Kid Arcane

Big Red -- Hey, short stuff, how'd you get to have your name in Big Letters before
me?  That's just wrong!  -- Cassiopeia

Snooze Bandit -- Yeah, see how well you fight when YOU'RE sleep deprived!! --
Cassiopeia 

Horus -- Unusual choice of weapon.  And what's with the big headdress?  Going to a
party later? -- Gamma K. Grad

     Well, it is the season for costume parties.

Road Trippin -- The Osksi newsletter says you were "luckily beaten," but we both know
better, right? -- Galilea

Lasagna -- Strictly "to go," aren't you? -- Auriga Nebula

Is it my imagination, or is this arena shrinking? -- Kid Arcane

Zombie Bait -- Why would anyone want to bait a zombie?  I'm not getting this. --
Falrondial Voth

Wisp of Darkness -- You didn't look all that wispy to me. -- Markessian Sko
P.S.  Although you do resemble some, well, not THINGS, shadows?  They come down of
the Northern Ice in the winter, and people go mad.  Messy.

Funny Farm Fiend -- (groan)  I'm not laughing.  But that was just LIKE a cat. --
Daeromenzian Val

Kareoke Killer -- Huh, you had range on me.  Obviously, that counts. -- Skaevolovian
Kor

Ah!  The Ambitious Guard was someone I could really get my teeth into.  Figuratively,
I'm no vampire.  There were some ambitious guards who tried to stop me leaving
Kekoral, but THEY didn't even survive.  Ha! -- Saldorinivan Kiro

Mega Pixel -- I'm more of a distance runner than a sprinter. -- Skaevolvian Kor

Kareoke Killer -- Now if only you could sing! -- Falrondial Voth

Road Trippin -- Maybe.  It's going to take some adjustment, fighting people who
aren't automatically out to collect the bounty on my head. -- Markessian Sko

Our congratulations to Bob the Inhaler. -- Jorja and the Games Librarians

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
