                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in OSKSI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  GAMES LIBRARY were a bunch 
of dogs after GENERATION X got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Up 'n 
down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  
Well, N.G.O.A. KNIGHTS' 4th moved them up to 3-2-0 place.  GENERATION X showed OSKSI 
what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 3-1-0.  
What's with NANCY?  She actually beat OSKSI's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 
14 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at GENERATION X while they watched 
HIGHLIGHT FILM clobber MELONDARION NORIS.  He lost 10 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, UBIQUITI BULLET wasn't good enough 
at persuading VIPER to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters 
with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, PASTA!  In my day, no 
team with a 147-133-13 would scare me off!  What's the problem, F IS FOR... 2?  Keep 
challenging up 29 points, L.T. WALLBANGER, and I won't have to write about you much 
longer.  FENTANAYL always accepts those kind of challenges...  L.T. WALLBANGER won 
victory over FENTANAYL (L.T. WALLBANGER getting 21 points, too!)--Ooh baby!  Now dat 
I likes!   
     Warriors of OSKSI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
OSKSI is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Velovorinsal -- Last time I was too subtle this time more direct.  Bold and direct
seems to work. -- 

Mel... Noris -- That funny!  But the manager called me that because he planned to
send me to the D.A. because of my WL.  Life is too short. -- D.A. Food

Merisandara Tiron -- Thanks!  By the way, my manager thinks your team is cool because
you guys & gals always write personal ads.  Good luck. -- David

Merisandara Tiron -- Bad match up.  You will be a very good fighter.  Me, I am just a
wall.  Good luck. -- L.T.

Arugula -- Nice fight. -- Stainless Steel

Grimspear -- Maybe I should challenge you next turn and change my strategy? -- David

Arugula -- That is the way to win the hearts of everyone, including your manager. --
Assur

Stainless Steel -- Thanks for all of that.  I got a contract because of our fight! --
Arugula

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Games Librarians

Our congratulations to Viper and Starkad. -- Jorja and the Games Librarians again

Fentanayl -- Your wish, within reason, is my command.  Just don't go wishing for a
chance to kill me, okay? -- Velovorinsal Nors

Ravioli -- I didn't like the filling much, too bland.  But it was better than being
beaten with a noodle.  By a noodle. -- Eldaristan Faro

L.T. Wallbanger -- What, am I a wall, that you should bang on me? -- Merisandara
Tiron

Nancy -- Um, I guess that wasn't the act of a gentleman, but what the heck.  I never
said I was one. -- Melondarion Noris
