                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail OSKSI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for 
GENERATION X, whose 0-3-0 this turn dropped them by 9 into 12th.  VEGGIES stable has 
parlayed this turn's 1-0-0 into a 5 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 7th place.  Good work, guys!  The THE BLACK COMPANY guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, WHISPER fought HIGHLIGHT FILM and gained 20 points and 
contributed to THE BLACK COMPANY's 3-0-0.  PIGS WINGS has lost to SEE ME FEAR ME, 
falling 12 points, while helping make SPEAKEASY a 1-1-0 turn.  And all eyes were on 
FREAK SHOW this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  OSKSI has a new 
victor!  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 AESIR stable was the 
most avoided team this turn.  Come on OSKSI, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding 
AESIR more than any other team we find VEGGIES.  OSKSI, are we going to accept, or 
respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that MERISANDARA TIRON 
from GAMES LIBRARY was OSKSI's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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.  SKADI must have surprised AESIR 
this turn, after they sent her to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't hold 
her!  Is it really true that OSKSI has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  
Just thought I'd ask...   
     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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

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

See Me Fear Me -- Sorry, it takes too much energy. -- Marisondra Kendra
P.S.  Not that conserving my energy did me much good in fighting, but it's the
principle of the thing.

Skadi -- Impressive.  Congratulations. -- Kandaresron Varn

Odin is a zombie?  That raises a whole bunch of questions.  But, um, good fight, I
guess. -- Merisandara Tiron

Brono -- That may have been "handy" for you, but it wasn't what *I* was looking for
at all.  It makes me feel terribly grumpy. -- Keamron Vro

Rotelle -- And that winds up an oh-fer turn for us.  Oh, well, some cheese sauce,
maybe tomatoes and basil, and at least it'll be lunch. -- Melondarion Noris
