                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt OSKSI will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as THE BLACK COMPANY is pushed out of top team by AESIR, who came from 3rd with a 
2-3-0 this turn.  N.G.O.A. KNIGHTS stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 5 
space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 4th place.  Good work, guys!  And 
let's see, L.T. WALLBANGER fought ROTELLE and gained 18 points and contributed to 
N.G.O.A. KNIGHTS' 4-1-0.  KANDARESRON VARN has lost to 46, falling 13 points, while 
helping make GAMES LIBRARY a 2-2-0 turn.  We should ask HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPO about the 
thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he'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.  AESIR has cause to stand tall, as they were 
OSKSI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess 
who avoided AESIR stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was GENERATION X.  Anyone 
surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was NUMBERS' warrior 69.  More 
fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  NANCY of N.G.O.A. KNIGHTS 
had better have a good reason for challenging down 15 points in a challenge which she 
won.  I thought NANCY showed great skill and promise when she bested 69.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  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.  Always good to rest in OSKSI, but never good to wear out my welcome.  Look 
for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in OSKSI again, farewell-- Alarond 
the Scribe
