                                      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.  VALLEY OF KINGS?  Who?  
GAMES LIBRARY is the top team these days, buddies!  He who laughs last didn't get the 
joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe GENERATION X.  Last week they got 3-2-0 
to drop by 4!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive 
observation?) as GAMES LIBRARY can attest...  STATE OF MIND posted a nice gain, to 
come in 5th.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for EXISTANCE MUNDANE, who 
pummelled CULT MEMBER, to pocket 22 points.  A certain someone saw VECTOR UNSTABLE at 
The Elefont with the shakes, and now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  What 
a pathetic slob!  What can be a greater victory?  COFFEE HOUSE POET has taken hers 
place as the top, as OSKSI's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in OSKSI is taking 
speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in ASTRAL 
KIN are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman of 
good breeding scorns the "warriors" of VALLEY OF KINGS, so did that sorry team shy 
from ASTRAL KIN Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, HERMOD is the most challenged warrior.  Place your bets!  
ELBOWS is the long shot of the week:  they challenged COFFEE HOUSE POET, up by 46.  
COFFEE HOUSE POET had a quite go of it, putting ELBOWS in his place.  FUNNY FARM 
FIEND challenged MEGA PIXEL!  Who says STATE OF MIND are just a bunch of wimps!  
FUNNY FARM FIEND of STATE OF MIND kept hers wits as she defeated MEGA PIXEL.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for OSKSI?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
