                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in OSKSI this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
THE BLACK COMPANY is pushed out of top team by GAMES LIBRARY, who came from 3rd with 
a 4-1-0 this turn.  The AESIR guild has had a 4-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched 
in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, 
MOONBAT fought ARUGULA and gained 17 points and contributed to POLITICAL ASYLUM's 
1-0-0.  FENTANAYL has lost to M. CHARDINEE, falling 15 points, while helping make F 
IS FOR... 2 a 0-1-0 turn.  This turn HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPO Dark Arena Challenged HIGH 
ELF in what was OSKSI's Title bout.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have 
failed, and HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPO remains OSKSI's top warrior for another turn.  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.  GAMES LIBRARY 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 GAMES LIBRARY stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
PASTA.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that MERISANDARA TIRON from 
GAMES LIBRARY was OSKSI's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, 
WHISPER from THE BLACK COMPANY challenged up 23 points to fight ROTELLE from the 
PASTA stable.  WHISPER perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she bested ROTELLE 
and ended up with 48 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPO must have surprised GENERATION X this turn, after they 
sent him to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't hold him!  Congratulations go 
out to AESIR, with SKADI revenging a bloodfeud against SMOKE of THE BLACK COMPANY.  
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.   
     I like this place, OSKSI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in OSKSI and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in OSKSI again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
