                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of OSKSI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at VALLEY OF 
KINGS left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by PASTA.  Good 
show!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, 
observe STATE OF MIND.  Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 5!  What's a move up by 6 
you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to PASTA. 
Good things come to those who fight well, as ASTRAL KIN can attest, moving up by 3.  
Practice pays for NALIGA, who pummelled PERSISTENT BEGGAR, to pocket 11 points.  Win 
some, lose some.  Speaking of which, SON OF DAGON was winsome, after beating METEOR 
MAN II and seeing him lose 10 points.  Can you believe it?  COFFEE HOUSE POET 
apparently has better things to do as OSKSI's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  
What can be a greater victory?  VECTOR UNSTABLE has taken his place as the top, as 
OSKSI's new Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls 
and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of STATE OF MIND, alone and unchallenged.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of DREAMS OF KADATH, so did that sorry 
team shy from STATE OF MIND Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and SKAEVOLOVIAN 
KOR is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't GAMES LIBRARY proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
OSKSI would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  OSKSI, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Elefont.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir
