                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail OSKSI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, RAVEN fought MERISANDARA TIRON and gained 25 points and 
contributed to THE BLACK COMPANY's 3-2-0.  MERISANDARA TIRON has lost to RAVEN, 
falling 17 points, while helping make GAMES LIBRARY a 2-3-0 turn.  SKADI challenged 
for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone GENERATION X's warrior.  We 
should ask SKADI about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does 
for a warrior, she's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear 
the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Elefont until they win.  
Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the N.G.O.A. KNIGHTS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on OSKSI, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding N.G.O.A. KNIGHTS more than any other team we find AESIR.  OSKSI, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was AESIR's warrior SKADI.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Argula -- Why would anyone want a rubber anything?  I have heard that there are
gladiators on the Isle who use rubber knives and the like, but that strikes me as
fairly useless. -- Kandaresron Varn
P.S.  It's all ZUCCINI these days!  Yuck.

Gorgoth -- Well!  You certainly lived up to your team name.  That was uncommonly
savage of you. -- Kandaresron Varn
P.S.  And this after I actually ATE zuccini.

Junkfood Junkie -- I was hungry, okay?  Really hungry. -- Melondarion Noris

Vithar -- Oh, darn.  It's the weather, isn't it?  Going all cold and stuff on us.
You'd think that wouldn't handicap ME, though--I come from that kind of climate, too.
Darn. -- Professor Eldaristan Faro

Nancy -- That was a pleasant surprise!  Thanks. -- Merisandara Tiron
