                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I knew I had to come out fast against Falrondial, since in our first meeting, he
beat me to the jump.  This time, I attacked first and ended the fight quick.  That
earned me immortality and land, but it is bittersweet because my career is
effectively over.  The land is great, for I will certainly use it to grow lots and
lots of Veggies.  So just one fight left and it will be in the Dark Arena.  I lift my
cup to a good draw this turn.

-- Squash

Notes from Assur:
     A great finish for a basher who was a third wheel, winning 6 in a row after
losing 3 of his first 4 coming back to Osksi.  Squash is 12-10-13-17-15-10-7 Norm
End/Good Dmg.  He graduates with skills at 27-9-20-12-8-20.  Faves were MO/LO LG,
learns initiative.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out OSKSI to see 
what's new.  The guys at GENERATION X like really pulled together to get a 2-3-0 this 
turn, moving up by 3.  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, PASTA!  'Cause 
they got 3-1-1 and moved up to 5th!  MVP award for STEPHEN HAWKING?  BRIGHT's proud 
of it after beating FENRIS and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  
FENRIS got smashed by STEPHEN HAWKING, and lost 10 points!  The Duelmaster isn't 
going to stop just cause he's Number One!  HIGH ELF knows this.  He was Dark Arena 
Challenged by the Duelmaster.  This Duelmaster is like something else!  SQUASH 
stopped HIGH ELF dead in his tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors 
get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  STATE OF MIND was OSKSI's most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why AESIR's been avoiding 
STATE OF MIND so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is FALRONDIAL 
VOTH popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of OSKSI!  He's got a 
20-23-0, is that good?  THE SUN is being unfair.  It's challenged down 16 against 
FALRONDIAL VOTH.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) 
Is this how BRIGHT advances, by having their members (THE SUN) fight people that are 
really below them (FALRONDIAL VOTH)?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All OSKSI ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  SQUASH returns from the Dark 
Arena, maybe a "little upset" at his VEGGIES teammates...  Like, who is this guy???  
CAVATELLI gets sent to the Dark Arena, battles DARK CHAMPION, and returns to tell of 
it!!!  I bet PASTA manager is surprised!  I hear PASTA sent GNOCCHI to the Dark 
Arena.  What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all 
you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Where Dreams Go2 Die -- Maybe so, but I'm not ready to give 'em up yet.  I *will*
assemble a company of trained close-quarters fighters and take it back to Karia and
do a lot more than just *subdue* the greedy and ambitious king of Kekoral.  I WILL.

devastating, too.  Congratulations on your graduation. -- Falrondial Voth
