                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly OSKSI games.  Former top team STATE OF MIND was 
unseated this week as GENERATION X moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-0-0 record for the round.  HYPE MACHINE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested SKADI and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HYPE MACHINE put down SKADI, 
causing her to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Most watched of the 
fights this week, the spotlight was on BANDIT PRINCE as he bore arms against the Dark 
Arena Challenge of reigning Duelmaster KVASIR.  Not for nothing has KVASIR in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat 
skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in OSKSI seem to 
feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city OSKSI.  OSKSI, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy guilds 
is GENERATION X, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding GENERATION X.  Indeed it was STATE OF MIND.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  DARIROKAN KOR take warning!  You have more than 
a few enemies in OSKSI.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  KVASIR has sworn to take up religion 
upon living to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing 
indeed!  I must report the passing of DARIROKAN KOR, veteran of many duels.  16-24-0 
final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  My hearty 
congratulations DARK SARCASM, for thy revenge upon RAVIOLI, slayer of thy fallen 
comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way 
he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!  
     The girls are as pretty in OSKSI as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into 
a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani

Miserys Hollow Chasm -- You're welcome to the "spoils of victory" because, frankly,
they're spoiled.  Oh, not badly, but definitely a little over-ripe.  Don't linger
over them. -- Darirokan Kor

Morally Ambivalent -- Yeah, I'm not sure how I feel about that. -- Melondarian Noris

Our congratulations to Kvasir. -- Jorja and the Games Librarians

Hungry Hungry Hippo -- Ah, the Blind Munchies personified!  Also known as, You Are
What You Eat. -- Darirokan Kor, trying to eat lean things
P.S.  But bacon and cheese and butter... so GOOD....

Thatwhich Ufearmost -- Ah?  Not you, I think.  Nothing personal, but gladiation, no.
What concerns me most, I won't say *frightens* me, exactly, is the king figuring out
where we all went and what we're up to.  Does Kekoral have an extradition agreement
with Osksi?  Inquiring minds worry about it sometimes. -- Velovorinsal Nors

Ubiquiti Bullet -- You little people think you're so superior!  Well, make the most
of it in the arena, because in an alley, things are different! -- Eldaristan Faro

And a pair of Mordant Deserters, or possibly the same one, is roundly trounced.
Squarely, too. -- Melondarion Noris and Merisandara Tiron
