                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of OSKSI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  It seems so recently people were saying 
DREAMS OF KADATH was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-0 moved them up 1.  I guess 
they're washed no more...  What's with HUSTLERS AMBITION?  He actually beat GAMES 
LIBRARY's FALRONDIAL VOTH, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at GAMES LIBRARY.  DAEROMENZIAN VAL lost 16 points to OF ALHAZRED.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe DAEROMENZIAN VAL will provide more easy wins...  
Apparently OSKSI isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded 
Duelmaster got 4 challenges this turn!  Another fighter (THE VOICE INSIDE 11-9-0) 
challenged another Duelmaster (ALFJAR 11-9-1).  Life goes on.  THE VOICE INSIDE was 
reminded on the sands why ALFJAR is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, ASTRAL KIN!  
In my day, no team with a 331-316-27 would scare me off!  What's the problem, AESIR?  
     Warriors of OSKSI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Sending a warrior 
to the Dark Arena reminds the others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, URU.  
That's what a 7-4-1 gets you.  THE VOICE INSIDE, with his forgettable 11-9-0,  was 
killed by ALFJAR in a forgettable match.  STATE OF MIND didn't seem to mind very 
much.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Gollyleo -- The Broadsword worked our very nicely for you.  You seemed more skilled
in that match.  I will catch up and shut that yap yet. -- Big Red

Astral Kin -- Response to a while back--  No, Alexander is not a tourney warrior.  No
hidden FE.  You did what you should have done with Plasma Girl. -- Bill Harrigan of
the LLA

Ghost of Stoned Immaculate -- I guess you shouldn't have pressed your luck there,
buddy!  It seemed like I had your number, but you just didn't get the hint.  Maybe
you shouldn't havef inhaled! -- Kareoke Killer

Alfjar -- Boy, where did you come from?!  I certainly didn't expect that coming!  You
could at least have taught a little better. -- Mega Pixel

Ulthar -- Glad I woke up in time for that one!  I guess all I needed was a little nap
to feel all refreshed! -- Snooze Bandit

Jarl -- Don't feel too bad!  That's been my M.O. lately. -- Road Trippin

Kid Arcane -- Hey, I hear you!  I missed my personal ads last turn as well.  I guess
that's what I get when I borrow Snooze Bandit's alarm clock! -- Storm Lord

Of Alhazred -- "Of"?  What's the deal with that?  Did Alhazred dream of Kadath?  Or
of an insurance policy that wouldn't lapse?  Or of a chance to let off a stink-bomb
in the central keep of the King of Kekoral (which'll get you skinned alive if he
catches you or even just THINKS you had anything to do with it).  Or--  What?  How
can I have "used up my time"?  I was just getting warmed up!  Well, drat.  Uh, good
fight. -- Daeromenzian Val

Wisp of Darkness -- I knew it!  I escaped the Darkness that is creeping into Kekoral,
and persuaded myself that I'd "gotten away free," but it was not so.  How annoying.
-- Ghost of Markessian Sko
P.S.  Perhaps I'll reincarnate in the replacement.  There are strong magics at work,
and it isn't impossible.  Although I will admit it's unlikely.  And now that I look
at the replacement, maybe not even desirable--definitely not a perfect specimen....

Hodur -- Someone said we should "go easy on you guys to welcome you back," but I
figured that would be a false kindness.  This arena is hard on gladiators, so why
sugar-coat it?  Still, welcome back.  Obviously, I don't remember you myself, but
Jorja says the return of your team is a good thing.  I don't argue with Jorja! --
Saldorinivan Kiro

A Fratsfa Slave, bah!  What do I care?  I'm just glad he wasn't actually Fratsfan.
Those people are too like the Siniar, at least in looks, and the Sinian rangers are
just not anybody to mess with.  In fact, it was one of 'em who helped me get out of
Kekoral ahead of the King's Hunters. -- Skaevolovian Kor

I wish they'd let me kill that Captured Orc.  Orcs are always trouble.  Practically
wild beasts, except wild beasts have more decency. -- Falrondial Voth

Kid Arcane -- It's your imagination.  We've got Staplegun and Buri back, so we can't
be in trouble. -- Jorja

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!
