                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, it's about time I made it here.  Buri is giving me the opportunity to
bloodfeud this turn, if I win, great.  If I don't, then Kvasir is still waiting in
the wings to satisfy honor. -- Starkad

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for OSKSI.  The guys at N.G.O.A. KNIGHTS like 
really pulled together to get a 1-3-0 this turn, moving up by 3.  Cut this out and 
put it in your scrapbooks, PASTA!  'Cause they got 4-0-1 and moved up to 2nd!  MVP 
award for NOODLES?  PASTA's proud of him after beating SKADI and getting 18 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  SKADI got smashed by NOODLES, and lost 15 points!  
The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  DARK SARCASM knows 
this.  He was Bloodfeuded by the Duelmaster.  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome DARK SARCASM.  Aren't STATE OF MIND 
proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said OSKSI's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Elefont?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  PASTA was OSKSI's most avoided team.  Is there some 
award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why STATE OF MIND's been avoiding 
PASTA so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is SALDORINIVAN KIRO 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of OSKSI!  He's got a 21-39-0, 
is that good?  Speaking of challenging 28 points above did you hear about RAVIOLI of 
PASTA vs. STATE OF MIND's WHERE DREAMS GO2 DIE?  (And how was that intro!) Do you 
think RAVIOLI knew something before he challenged WHERE DREAMS GO2 DIE?  He got a win 
and 31 points.  What will the guy do next?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I 
found out NANCY challenged THATWHICH UFEARMOST.  After all, haven't N.G.O.A. KNIGHTS 
and STATE OF MIND had a long standing duel in OSKSI?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, 
or anything, but THATWHICH UFEARMOST wants me to write about it since he defeated 
NANCY.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't 
believe how many people were snickering when RAVIOLI killed WHERE DREAMS GO2 DIE.  So 
he had a 8-12-1, that's no excuse!  Didja see that awesome fight where RAVIOLI of 
PASTA wiped out WHERE DREAMS GO2 DIE?  Who'da thought RAVIOLI had it in him?  What if 
they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Dark Sarcasm -- I'm not too upset at the loss of Hermod... he was a classic under-
achiever: 9-9-12-21-10-12-11 ST and he never lived up to his potential.  He would
have retired after graduating.  Still, I gotta bloodfeud, of course.  Now get outta
here and stop killing my guys! -- Buri

Jorja and Nors -- Someone might have been on a bit of fentanyl when they entered
my name on the arena lists since they was a slight opps. -- FentanAyl (sigh)

Starkad -- Since the fight pushed me over the edge, I think it must have been
political points, I can't complain.  Well, I *could* complain, but that would be
silly.  So, good fight. -- Saldorinivan Kiro
P.S.  Graduation details if anyone wants 'em.

Perciatelli -- I *knew* pasta would be the death of me.  After all, nobody back home
makes that stuff!  But... it was so GOOOOOD. -- Ghost of Delisandara Meru

Where Dreams Go2 Die -- What I'm not getting is why dreams *have* to die.  How about
where they go to come true? -- Velovorinsal Nors

Ravioli -- More dangerous pasta.  Darn. -- Eldaristan Faro, ready to pig out anyway

Fentanayl -- For some reason, I keep thinking your name should be written F*********.
It just sounds... BAD.  Oh, well. -- Darirokan Kor
