                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in OSKSI a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as GENERATION X is pushed out of top team by AESIR, who came from 3rd 
with a 2-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, HUSTLERS AMBITION fought FALRONDIAL VOTH and 
gained 22 points and contributed to STATE OF MIND's 3-2-0.  HYPE MACHINE has lost to 
FENRIS, falling 15 points, while helping make GENERATION X a 2-3-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and COBBLESTONE remains OSKSI's top 
warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Elefont?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the PASTA stable was the most avoided team 
this turn.  Come on OSKSI, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding PASTA more than any 
other team we find STATE OF MIND.  OSKSI, are we going to accept, or respect this 
sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that SMEG MAGGOD from DARK BLADES was 
OSKSI's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  SNOOZE BANDIT has departed OSKSI, leaving GENERATION X without their 
8-5-1 warrior.  Question, just what was his team doing at the taverns last night?  
We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know 
who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in OSKSI and I've a long road ahead of me. 
Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in OSKSI again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Loabal Domination -- Ah, you mean... you weren't in your right mind? -- Darirokan Kor

Auriga Nebula -- Jorja thinks it's odd that you aren't already on our list after
