                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Some days, ambition is not enough, as Hustler discovered.  Now if we can just
figure out how to deliver that message to the King back home, maybe we can GO back
home.  It isn't that we don't like you Osksians, you've been real, just like the home
folks.  But you are NOT the home folks, that's the problem.  And some days, even more
some nights, we really miss it.

                                  Falrondial Voth

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of OSKSI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with DARIROKAN KOR?  He actually 
beat PASTA's GNOCCHI, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at PASTA.  GNOCCHI lost 14 points to DARIROKAN KOR.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe GNOCCHI will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure OSKSI is excited 
about HUSTLERS AMBITION, the new Duelmaster from STATE OF MIND.  (remember?)  But 
when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  OSKSI thinks STATE OF 
MIND and their 162-170-15 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
The bums at PASTA couldn't face the challenges from STATE OF MIND!  No excuse for 
that!  What do people see in SQUASH?  His 16-10-0?  VEGGIES ain't talkin', but he's 
got 58 points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that 
FUNNY FARM FIEND gets in.  She fights people like COBBLESTONE, 11 points below.  I 
thought FUNNY FARM FIEND showed great skill and promise when she killed COBBLESTONE.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  COBBLESTONE, with his forgettable 11-16-1,  was put to death 
by FUNNY FARM FIEND in a forgettable match.  STL RAD didn't seem to mind very much.  
Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take 
note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Starkad -- I had a dream after our fight in which Thor appeared to me and gave me HIS
hammer to use against you. -- Squash

Fenris -- Big dogs have always made me nervous, ever since the King back home used
'em to track me when I ran for it.  I keep imagining them leaping on my back and
biting my ears off. -- Darirokan Kor

Gnocchi -- Pasta is ever my downfall, but this time I managed to restrain myself.  No
thirds. -- Saldorinivan Kiro
P.S.  We don't have pasta back home, but I think, if we ever get the political mess
cleared up, I'm going to introduce it.  Provided I'm still alive, of course.

Perciatelli -- Saldor's got a point with that "pasta is my downfall" stuff.  It's so
CONVENIENT.  You know what they say, "Rice is nice, but pasta's fasta." --
Velovorinsal Nors

Angel Hair -- Ha.  It tangles just like human hair, and I, for one, am GLAD to see
that. -- Delisandara Meru
