                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in OSKSI!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 3-0-0.  Keep it up, BRIGHT!  MVP award for 
EXISTANCE MUNDANE?  STATE OF MIND's proud of him after beating SALDORINIVAN KIRO and 
getting 17 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  ATARI KING got smashed by 
KVASIR, and lost 11 points!  Like, SQUASH must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the 
Duelmaster from SERPENTS' HOLD.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  Was that a 
tear I saw in SQUASH's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't VIPER fit to 
be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me! 
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  GENERATION X was the most avoided team.  Is a 
199-194-20 record really that scary?  I don't know what AESIR's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from GENERATION X, that's fer sher.  Can 
GAMES LIBRARY's SALDORINIVAN KIRO be more popular than me?  He was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?  YELLOW SWEATER is being unfair.  He's challenged 
down 16 against VELOVORINSAL NORS.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on.  (I'd 
better shut up) I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in OSKSI.  YELLOW SWEATER 
got 6 points after beating VELOVORINSAL NORS, 16 points below him.  THE SUN must not 
be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  It challenged FALRONDIAL VOTH.  13 
is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought THE SUN showed 
great skill and promise when it subdued FALRONDIAL VOTH.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  OSKSI is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Viper/Khisanth -- You ruined my plotting and planning to get Squash on the throne the
easy way.  I think I've been Hustled.  Now I have to do it the hard way, by having
Squash actually beat the current Duelmaster. -- Assur

Existence Mundane -- Ah, well, the two who died were probably Sons of Achilles.  The
Glorious Life rather than the Long Life, you know. -- Saldorinivan Kiro

Squash -- I'd LIKE to, but you kept twitching out of the way. -- Saldorinivan Kiro

The Sun -- Ouch ouch ouch... I burn easily.  Don't do that again. -- Falrondial Voth

Gnocchi -- So I like catsup on everything, sue me. -- Darirokan Kor

Ubiquiti Bullet -- You're too short to carry off that "devastating" stuff without
looking faintly ridiculous.  And you really need a loss for balance. -- Delisandara
Meru

Yellow Sweater -- That is NOT my color.  It makes me look jaundiced. -- Velovorinsal
